Love's Crash Landing by Amylea Lyn
Love's Crash Landing - Amylea Lyn

"Prince Mi'Kel is now Mikinna Petrovik, formerly of Moscow... My contact said there wouldn't be a problem (with false documents - mrella) even if those Feds get it into their heads to look.”

 

I laughed and I laughed and I laughed!... And then I giggled on top of it =) Maybe local, american, feds are fine with it, but Mikinna Petrovik is not a Russian name and population there is not that diverse not to draw attention to a strange name *snort* Might as well have kep Mi'kel.

Эклипсис (Эклипсис #1) by Tiamat
Эклипсис - Тиамат,Tiamat

К сожалению, развитие дел в книге перестало для меня работать.

Даб-кон в сопровождении насильного оргазма - нэ моэ. Впрочем, это я еще смогла бы читать, и даже получать удовольствие, если бы один из тройничка, толкая эльфа в объятия его бывшего насильника, при этом не клялся жертве в вечной любви. Кавалер Альва меня сильно разочаровал. Предательством тут попахивает, дорогие мои, сеньк ю вери мач, предательством и извращенством не самого приятного образа. Лечение ПТСД методом "клин-клином вышибают", только усиливает травму. 

Сваливать похоть и вину на жертву изнасилования, простите, опять не мое - был там, делал это, получил, как говорится, рубашенцию (для утерения соков страстно-мордастного совокупления).

Хоу-эва, до этой главы история была замечательна и трогательна и читала и читала бы я ее дальше, но мои заморочки, извините, не позволяют. 

Поэтому оставляю днф-ом и без оценки. Что, на самом деле, есть очень, очень жаль :(

Every Move He Makes by Barbara Elsborg
Every Move He Makes - Barbara Elsborg

This was a great book until the last 25% or so. 

Extra points for excellent russian here and there, tho I still can't figure out why stupid typos were left untouched. "Pecherskaya" was spelled "Pe r cherskaya" literally half the time. No matter the language, it's an annoyance. "The band was called "Gryaznykh Angelov"...". Say what? @.@ A minor mistake, sure, but on top of interchangeable peRcherskaya it screamed "I don't really care. they won't get it anyway.", not to mention the name is such a cliche. What else... "'mu'dak' means 'asshole'". Sure if "asshole" means "meany". Let's be nice, I guess. So, that was the minor stuff.

My major complaint - and it's me, probbly, since I like sex in my books in very moderate amounts - is that the last 20% turned into pure porn. I really don't care who topped whom in the end, how many times and how sticky the stickiness got. Both characters, especially Zak, were crazed enough on sex from the very beginning, but by the end the lust came out full force without MCs surfacing for air for 20% straight. I lost all interest in the book and going to DNF it at 93%.

That leaves me with - what? 75% is pure awesomeness, save for the typos. I can easily dish out 5 and more shiny stars. The last 25% tho? A star and a half maybe.

Bloodlust: A Tale of Erotic Yaoi Horror by Amelita Rae
Bloodlust: A Tale of Erotic Yaoi Horror - Amelita Rae

Want to mention: inconsistencies, contradictions, messed up narrative (not always sure in which timeline I was), cliches and various other wtf-ery waiting for you on every page and in every paragraph. But, yaoi novel, what did I expect. I went for something naive and low quality - a quicky, if you please - and I got it for about 60%.

And then BIG guns came out.

NOT A SPOILER, BUT A SERIOUS WARNING (this is all in the book, not my words, except for "wtf", so keep your finger off that "flag" button):

*

The book took a turn for pure brutality: brutal rape, brutal beatings, brutal murder, brutal zombies, brutal weres, brutal winter, just effing brutal all around with a bouquet of taboos thrown in just for the shocker. It includes consuming human flesh, tearing off limbs, sucking out brains and eyes, ripping out "bowels", fisting, tearing up assholes (literally, of course), dancing on the bloody floor and stomping through the guts, watersports, piss enemas, knotting, implied incest (why not go all the way, wtf?), bestiality and manimal sex/rape (shifted form). I am sure I missed a few juicy bits while rolling my eyes. Please, don't hold it against me.

1 star for the first 60-65%, which still contained a story. The rest - super-massive black hole.

Thank you for your time.

PS Must mention: one of the scenes in the book reminds me strongly ofPrisoner in the Viewfinder. Particularly the scene on the cruise ship with Michael Arbatov, his uncle Yuri and Akihito. A young blond photographer, a pure soul, raped and abused by bad Russian homophobic mobsters.

(Watch Me) Break You (Run This Town #1) by Avril Ashton
(Watch Me) Break You (Run This Town, #1) - Avril Ashton

After reading Brooklyn Sinners I can't get rid of the feeling that this is more of the same. Why even bother starting new series? Avril could have just continued the old one, unless I am missing something and this is a spin-off.

The book started well enough, but lost most of its steam and turned sappy not even half way through. With no edge to the story, "smart" MCs who couldn't figure out what was right in front of their faces (attempts at Dima's life included), awkward language, plagued by numerous typos and errors, the book got boring and I found myself skipping pages. Still, it was entertaining to a degree.

 

Don't have desire to continue the series.
