Kane's Awakening
Kane's Awakening - Jaclyn Osborn

After months of teasing, postings about her discussions with Kane, and images of these two characters, we finally got an early release for this third installment in the Awakening Series.  While this can be read as a standalone, the characters from the other books make appearances.  The other two books were good. I loved Michael, probably the best, as a character, but Jackson was a perfect match for dear Zach.  And while both books were entertaining, neither held the grit that this one did for me.  Part of it may be that I immediately fell hard for both characters.  From their initial meeting, they were undeniably explosive together.

 

Kane was perfectly portrayed as an abused man with so many emotional walls. After a quite abusive relationship in his teen years, he shut himself completely off from any type of emotional connection with anyone and it is not until Ryker that the walls start to shatter. Ryker is just the perfect pairing for being able to see through the bullshit and see into the truth that is in Kane’s heart.

 

I’d built a wall around my heart and locked it inside an impenetrable barrier, but he seemed to have the damn key.

 

  

Ryker…absolutely perfect image.

 

There are some rough scenes between these two. Some harsh words and difficult situations and there are moments when you want to smack Kane upside the head and make him see reason. But there are the tender aww moments too that make you see inside of Kane and see exactly what Ryker sees.  #singlerose

 

And while there is the infamous drama around 85%...it worked for me.  There were issues and doubts from both parties and again trust is something that does not come easily for some and with Ryker’s history it was something that needed to be addressed.

 

Overall, this was just so well-crafted and told in such a beautiful way.  They grew as a couple and formed such a strong relationship knowing and loving the bad with the good.  It worked.

 

“Because dammit, Kane, you’re all I want. You are everything in a man that infuriates the hell out of me, but I keep coming back for more. Even though you’re stubborn and have asshole tendencies… even though you’re unfiltered and arrogant… I see you. The real you.” He smiled before pressing our heads together. “I’m aware of how stupid that sounds, but it’s true. There are moments when you look at me where I see your kind heart and your passion. Sometimes there’s a light in your eyes after I kiss you, one that you then hide.”

I couldn’t speak, so I stayed quiet and just let him do the talking.

“And the way I feel around you is unlike anything I’ve ever felt before,” he continued, pulling back and looking into my eyes. “I can’t get you out of my head, and I’m tired of fighting it. You might be an asshole… but I want you to be my asshole.”

 

And an asshole you can’t help but love to pieces.

 

Ryker smiled. “You ramble a lot when you’re nervous.”

“I’m not nervous.” I looked into his blue eyes and felt my heart twinge. He was too damn handsome. “Okay, maybe I am a little. Throwing you on the bed and fucking you senseless is easy, but taking you out to dinner makes my palms all sweaty.”

 

 

I adored the relationships they held with their families as well.  And while unconventional, everything seemed so genuine and real.  As for Devon…I wanted to kick his ass but I also kinda want his “Awakening” as well.  LOL He has a story to tell for sure.

 

And as a sidenote, I loved the addition of the relationship with Nemesis.  Such a beautiful way to show the love and understanding Kane has in his heart and a sort of recognition of the life he has had.  He is to Nem as Ryker is to him.  Heartwarming to say the least.

Reading progress update: I've read 85%.
Shiver - Brooke Blaine,Ella Frank

Pale faces…

Blank eyes…

A face devoid of any emotion because the one I took the journey with no longer lived and walked beside me with the darkest secret a soul could house.

That was what hell looked like. I knew because I’d been there before, only to emerge from it more broken than I’d been going in, and alone. I couldn’t forget that. The first and only other time it had happened, I had emerged from the most corrupt part of my being—alone.

 

Gaaaaaahhhh.  I fucking love this book!!!

Oh God, this is crazy… And even though I held the power to stop what was happening, there was no way I was uttering my safe word. I wanted to see how far he’d go, and he was trusting that I could handle it. I wouldn’t let him down, and what was more, I…wanted it. The pain. The pleasure I knew would eventually come. Use me

“Just remember, I told you before I’m no knight. I’m the Wolfe. I don’t want to save you or marry you. I don’t want to be your boyfriend. I want to eat you. Fuck you. Make you feel things you never have before, and most of all, I want you to beg me for more.”

Our Gentle Sin
Our Gentle Sin: A Taboo M/M Romance - Lyra Evans

So this was not your typical Taboo read.  This was just an absolutely beautiful story about two brothers, alone and learning to cope in a world without their parents.  This is not over erotic but a slow discovery of a love between brothers.  Yeah, I get this is not something everyone enjoys but it is a taboo that I love...and this one in particular is by far the best I have read.

 

I was worried that the outcome of what occured on Halloween would cause me to be a little irritated, but I have to say this played out even better than I expected.  And the further storylines surrounding Levi I did not anticipate at all. 

 

 

The photography aspects of this story worked beautifully and captured what no doubt many twin lovers like me want to see but perhaps is not always captured on film.  Like with Haydem and Raul Guerra Liranza (https://www.instagram.com/official_guerratwins/?hl=en), these brothers show their lives and their relationship through images. Good heavens, this page is just beautiful.  As in the story, the photographs begin to capture a rawness.  It is Kane, who's vulnerability and raw emotions are captured to move his audience in a way that creates emotion.  That is the true beauty of art and I felt it was captured amazingly well here.

 

 

 

The three photos were arranged as I had instructed, with the two shorter ones hanging to either side of the longer central one, shaping a kind of black and white arrowhead pointing to the ground. To the left was a close-up of Levi and I, arms framing each other’s head as we stared into each other’s eyes. The central one was a full-body shot, with me standing like some kind of Greek god, with Levi on his knees, staring up at me with worshiping eyes. Only the look in my eyes was just as full of worship, just as brimming with adoration. The line of the photo drew down, along my arm and hand, reaching for his face, caressing it, as his hands drew the eye upward to my chest, where he pressed his palms. The third photo was another close-up. The two of us intertwine in one another, my eyes half-lidded and Levi’s gaze trained on my mouth where he held up a hand, his fingers playing on my lips, drawing them open. He looked as though he was about to kiss me, as though I was about to devour him, which wasn’t far from the truth.

 

As I said, this type of romance is not for everyone but it completely works for me. There is truly no one in the world with a closer connection than I feel twins have.  Taboo or not, this is raw and beautiful.  **Highly Recommended**

 

This book has been banned by Amazon...unbelievable.  But you can find it at Smashwords... https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/758265
