Talk British to Me - Robin Bielman

Teague is having quite the year.  Moving to a new city, getting a new job, and being pursued by a hottie.  Honest almost to a fault, people will walk over her if she's not careful.  This includes her new boss.

 

Mateo is glad to be friends with Teague.  He knows she is the forever kind.  He cannot be in a committed relationship right now, or his career will be crushed.  So he settles.  Scared of his secrets coming to light, he makes the most of his friendship with the best friend he has had in some time.

 

Sexy and sweet, this book moves at a good pace and keeps the reader on the edge of their seat.  There is so many surprises inside, this book is worth the read.  Glad to have the humor to break up the heart crushing pieces, this story kept me turning the page!  I loved it and have to give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Shock value
Concourse - Santino Hassell

This is book #5 in the Five Boroughs series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For read understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this compelling series in order.

 

Valdrin AKA Val is Ashton's best friend since childhood.  Val is finding he has sincere feelings for his favorite guy, but he is constantly forced to be in a parental role with him.  He thinks he should try to separate himself from the equation, but Ashton won't let him go easily.

 

Ashton has knows he has been in love with Val since gradeschool.  His family welcomed him more than his own.  Now there relationship is in confused tatters.  Is it possible to get back in sync?  Should he take a chance and admit how he feels?

 

This series is so intense.  Each book with such an amazing story of its own.  I loved these characters right from the get go.  They want the same thing, just have to work it out somehow.  Cameo's by favorites from past books make this a must read!  I give this story a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Celebrity Chef Zombie Apocalypse by Jack Strange
Celebrity Chef Zombie Apocalypse - Amanda Horan,Graeme Parker,Jack Strange

 

Celebrity Chef Zombie Apocalypse has got to be one of the funniest books I've ever read!

 

Full of social and political commentary, it impressed me with keen observations regarding "celebrity chefs", government officials and the police. I thought it was funny as hell that the zombies herein were yellow, which made me picture them as Simpson-like in my head. Not only were they chef zombies, they were sex-crazed celebrity chef zombies-used to getting their own way in all things. (I'm pretty sure I recognized one or two of them from real life as well, which just made things even more funny-especially with the foul-mouthed one.)

 

 

The Prime Minister in this book very much reminded me of the man currently in power here in the U. S. I'm sure that wasn't the author's original intention, but I couldn't help myself from thinking that.

 

I'm not sure that Jardine, the female police investigator was supposed to be funny, but I found her to be so. She finally solves the case,

pretty much AFTER everything was already over! 

(spoiler show)

 

 

 Dave, who became the protagonist, 

after all the other protagonists were dead!,

(spoiler show)


  finally got fed up with trying to warn everyone about what was happening and decided to take off with his girlfriend to an isolated area to wait the whole thing out; as you might have guessed, that didn't work out well.

 

Oh, and did I mention Henderson, the ginger zombie cat? I can't even think about him without laughing.

 

This book was a hilarious piece of work; decently written with tongue firmly in cheek. I highly recommend it to those of you who like your main dish bloody with a hefty side of humor!

Patience
Managing Expectations - Peter Styles

Wynn has been with Holden for a decade, and he puts up with quite a bit to be able to be with him.  Holden has a very public job, and Wynn must stay private.  This is a tricky subject for them.

 

Along comes some surprises, that were not what Wynn signed up for.  He meets someone new that he is attracted to, and then begins the actual love triangle.  This is where Wynn must choose what is really right for him and his future.

 

This story was a challenge for me.  You get to where you root for the couple and then the surprises kick in and it all goes - boom!  In this book we have many outside factors, and it made the story both fun and frustrating.  Always love this author's stories, though.  Keeps me entertained.  I give this book a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Sometimes easy breezy and sweet is all you need.
Rainbow Sprinkles - Anna Martin
3.5 HEARTS--In the mood for something cute, light, easy and breezy? Anna Martin's Rainbow Sprinkles fits that description to a T.




Set in California, Cooper Reed is perfectly content working two jobs, one as a bartender, the other as worker/ ice cream creator at the Dreamery Creamery. He makes enough to get by and he also gets to fawn over his weekly customer with questionable ice cream tastes, Drew. Drew will combine some crazy flavors but never, ever forgets the rainbow sprinkles.

Is it a little pathetic that Mr. Rainbow Sprinkles has been delegated to wank fodder? Maybe, but Cooper's happy to keep his man of his dreams as just that in his dreams. Until one day, Drew shows a little interest.

Then dream man becomes real man. *smile*

Drew is a real live Disney prince! Okay, okay, he acts as one in nearby Disneyland. And he shows behind the Disney scenes in this book. I enjoyed the glimpses. Drew's sweetness and romantic side draws the more sarcastic Cooper in.



Both men are in mid twenties and they read their age. They fall for one another kind of quickly, kind of not, since they shared the employee/customer relationship for sometime prior to the start of the book. And like some twenty-somethings, they don't have it all figured out as of yet. The story has zero angst. We get meet cute into budding relationship into first fights and learning that when it matters, you have to communicate.

The boys drag their feet into resolving the internal conflict. That part kinda pissed me off a little. We go from one of them sending texts over and over on a daily basis (loved that) to just dropping off the face of the Earth when the going got a little tough.

I hope they work on it. I think they could.

The side characters are great and compliment Cooper and Drew. Their BFF's are cute and I was super happy with their development as well at the end.

It's my first foray into Dreamspinner Press' States of Love collection. I'd definitely return. The setting read authentic - down to the temperature, the traffic, the laid-backness. I never been to Cali but I imagine it to be something like this from what I've seen through media. There were tiny spots when the dialogue read British here and there if I had to nitpick.

I think this would work best for Anna Martin fans who like the quieter romance, fans of light, no angst reads and of course, Disney-stans.






Overall, pretty sweet.
