Reading progress update: I've read 53%.
Saving Sebastian - Luna David

“Look, I don’t know what’s going on with you. But from what I could see through the window, that wasn’t you. That’s not the older brother I’ve looked up to all my life. You crushed that boy. God, the love he had for you.” He shook his head again. “Every time your name was mentioned his face would light up. If you didn’t see it, you were blind, brother.”

Color Me In
Color Me In - Riley Hart

“I can’t promise I’ll be perfect, that I won’t stumble. I’m still getting comfortable in my skin, but… all I know is, being with you… it feels right. You feel right. It’s like everything was black and white and now I’m seeing in color. Like I was just an outline and you somehow colored me in.”


I have to say I thought about the movie Pleasantville a few times.  



This was beautiful and quite possibly the most sensual book I have ever read.  Ryan’s discovery and exploration into his sexuality was something I had never seen developed before and Riley just did an unbelievable job here.  And Caleb was just the perfect balance for him…an absolutely beautiful and giving partner.


I made the decision to reread "Depth of Field" before starting this book, and I am so glad I did.  Shane and Van played a pretty big part in this story, definitely more than a glimpse for sure.  I once again found myself gravitated to Van, his story and his character.  So much love for him.


This book honestly had very little angst.  The passionate build was just amazingly developed between these two and the background for Ryan quite heartbreaking. 


I will say that I wish we had gotten more of Caleb’s background.  I felt his time away from Last Chance was underdeveloped and I desperately wanted more. I also wish we could have gotten a bit more of how Ryan’s father and Ex-wife’s relationship with them developed further.


But overall, this was another winner by Riley Hart.  I am very curious if we will visit Last Chance again in the future as any opportunity to visit these men would be well received by me.


*Highly Recommended*

Depth of Field
Depth of Field (Last Chance Book 1) - Riley Hart

Well I realized once I had finished my reread that I had never written a review. And that is rather irritating considering this landed in my Best of 2017 list.  Bottom line…it’s wonderful and extremely sexy.


I think originally I indicated that this is likely my second favorite of Riley’s after “Broken Pieces”. And even after a reread, that holds true.  I adored this couple, their history and their ability to put the past aside and see the person standing before them today.  Van is filled with such regret that at times it is quite painful to hear and yet at the same time the past is equally painful for Shane. 


“You think I haven’t regretted that every goddamn day of my life since then? That I haven’t hated myself for it? That I haven’t thought of a million ways I could try to make it up to you? Because I have, and no, I know that doesn’t make it better. I know what I did, Shane. I live with it every fucking day of my life, the same way I’m sure you do. No matter how much we try to forget our pasts, they’re always fucking there.”


It definitely takes a special man to come to see Van as something different.  Shane was nurturing, devoted and strong and yet he is trapped. His relationship with his mother is quite beautiful and yet equally heartbreaking.  It is not until Van that Shane can truly be free in every sense of the word.


The photography aspects of this are what truly shined for me.  Van drawing Shane out little by little to see what he sees.  The truth, the passion, the man.  It is beautiful.

Broken - Nicola Haken

He’s always so serious, and although that intrigues me, he needs to smile more because when he does he’s fucking beautiful.




So, James is described as looking like David Gandy.  I mean come on...could this book have been written for anyone else...NOPE.


So bonus points there.  


But man...this was a heartbreaking book and my sweet "David Gandy" was deeply troubled.  His mental illness was beautifully captured and felt very real to me.  This is not an easy book.  But it's a journey that I would recommend regardless.  Theodore is unbelievably patient, loving and supportive and was the one to truly SEE James from the first time they met.  He was drawn in and capivated by this man.


“Stay with me, Theodore,” he murmurs. “No matter how hard I push, stay with me. Believe in me.” His tone is so raw, so powerful, and I can’t prevent the tear that leaks from the corner of my eye.

Hovering my face just inches from his, I cup his cheek, stroking softly with my thumb. “Always.”

There isn’t a choice. I belong to James Holden. I can try to fight it, but the truth is this beautiful, haunted man, has owned me since the first time I looked into his eyes.



This is simply beautiful.


The sight of him steals my breath for a moment. He’s stunning. All of him. Even the parts he’s ashamed of. To me, I see scars of courage. Inflicting them gave him the strength to survive the pain that’s plagued him all his life. I’m grateful to every one of them because he’s still here, with me.

I only wish the mother had gotten a good smack upside the head.  I cannot imagine treating a person with mental illness the way this woman treated her son.

Depth of Field (Last Chance Book 1) - Riley Hart

He could never leave, and Van would never want to stay.

But Christ, his mom was there. In his house and she was laughing and dancing and…happy. Her eyes glowed from it. It was like air to his lungs. Like for a little while, he could breathe easily. “Did you save me a dance, Ma?” he asked and her smile grew.
