a cute easy read
Ebb and Flow (Love's Charter Book 2) - A... Ebb and Flow (Love's Charter Book 2) - Andrew Grey
Independent Reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted my copy of this book. This is book two in the Love's Charter series, but you don't need to have read book one, Setting The Hook for this to make sense. But I will recommend that you do, and explain more as I go. We met Skippy in book one, he and his friends hired Mike's boat. Skippy is in town on business for his father's law firm, but is having a few days off before he starts. Billy Ray is now first mate to Bubba on Mike's boat, since he got a second boat with William's prototype engine in. Billy Ray knows he is gay, has done a long time but he hides it, mostly because of his religious father and the power he has over Billy Ray. But Skippy calls to Billy Ray, in a way no one else ever has. And it will take both men standing up to their overpowering fathers to figure out just want they really want. I listened to book one, but I READ this one. I should know better to switch mid series. This one doesn't have the warm and fuzzies that book one did, but still a cute read. Skippy's father sends him to the town in Florida (that I can't even say, let alone spell!) that has the harbour Mike works his charter out of. An oil company wants to built a pipeline right across the harbour. While that doesn't go down the way Skippy's father wanted, but the client and the twon are happy with the result. Standing up to his father, Skippy finds out just why it seemed he was so busy for the firm and just what his father really thinks of him. I loved that both men were able to stand up to their respective fathers, even though they both knew they could lose everything. I didn't feel the same connection I did to Skippy and Billy Ray that I did to Mike and William, but that might just be because I listened to that one and read this one. Oh, I said you didn't NEED to read book one first. But it might help you understand Bubba's reaction to Billy ray's coming out to him. When Mike did the same, Bubba reacted badly. He's better here, but you'd just get that extra insight. It says this book is 200 pages, but it didn't seem like it. One of those books you can just fall into and forget about the world for a while. Took me little over 90 minutes. A cute read, but not quite a warm and fuzzies one too. 4 solid stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

short but cute!
Clone Me a Lover - Rosalie Redd
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. Oh so deliciously short!! Cute too! Those are my overriding feelings upon finishing this book. Angelo Thirteen is found drifting in space after his ship is damaged. Elle is on a mission to sell some ore to raise funds to rescue her brother. Can a clone built without emotion find the love he craves? Can Elle find a place in her heart for someone other than her brother and her ship? Like I said, short!! 100 pages, little over an hour's reading time for me, but such a lovely way to spend that hour!! I've had a little run of science fiction books, and they can, at times, be a little too overpowering with the technology and stuff, but NOT so here. Just enough science, for Angelo is a clone. We get just enough for why he is Thirteen, and how he came to be craving the things he really shouldn't have. Just enough history, for Angelo and Elle and her brother. Just enough drama, for Elle is trying to keep her brother out of the prison mines. And a little twist at the end that I did not see coming! I do enjoy the way Ms Redd spins her tales, such easy, well rounded, well written tales! I wonder will there be more of these clones that aren't supposed to feel, but do?? A short review for a short book, but a VERY enjoyable book at that. 4 stars. **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

Visual novel review - Robo-Tea: 1 Sip!

 

[Robo-Tea: 1 Sip! is a short free visual novel, available here.]

 

I had a crappy day at work. I needed to de-stress but couldn’t seem to concentrate on anything, so I decided to give the last full Robo-Tea game I hadn’t yet played a shot (that just leaves one demo, and I’m trying not to touch it since I’d prefer to play the full game once it’s out).

And hey, it worked! I’m still not feeling 100%, but I can concentrate enough to write this review and I no longer feel like I’m at the edge of frustrated tears. The Robo-Tea games are magical oases of sweetness and calm.

Robo-Tea: 1 Sip! takes place sometime after Robo-Tea: 1 Cup! It’s very short and not much happens, along the lines of Robo-Tea: Misten Minicups, but in this case the few choices you’re able to make actually do have an effect on the game. Just like in Robo-Tea: 1 Cup!, you play as Gal. The game only has two choices total for each route. Your first choice determines which robot Gal is on another date with, Vals or Revek. The game only has three endings total, one for Vals and two for Revek (a bit of a bummer for Vals fans, but I’m a Revek girl so ha!). However! One of the choices for Vals results in an incredibly adorable image of Gal, so I think that helps make up for Vals only having one ending.

There isn’t really much more to say. Gal and Vals/Revek drink sparkle shakes together, talk about a future date, and are all generally adorable. I think I preferred Gal + Vals over Gal + Revek this time around, because of that cute picture and Vals’ offer for their next date. However, Gal + Revek was still pretty good. Oh, I love Revek.

If you want a sweet and simple visual novel with cute candy-colored graphics and no wrong choices, check this out. But start with Robo-Tea: 1 Cup! so that Vals and Revek are more than just random robots Gal happens to be dating. A part of the appeal of this game was its continuation of the relationships from the first game. Gal and Vals were definitely more comfortable with each other, and while there was a bit of awkwardness with Revek (depending on which option you went with), it was a nice kind of awkwardness.

short and so deliciously sweet!
Mr. Plum - Sue Brown
I won my copy of this book and no review was required, but I gotta tell you about this book! Another addition to the Too Stinking Cute shelf, and I really rather loved it. Its only short, some 30 odd pages, but its so deliciously sweet! Tom will tell the story of his and Dave's relationship with the beginning in the launderette. But Dave will tell you, it goes back far before then, to a cup of coffee in a paper sleeve that matched Tom's tie. Even though only Dave has a say, and Tom doesn't get a word in, at all, I still enjoyed it. Its very written, and you connect to both Dave AND Tom really well, for such a short book. I didn't spot a single spelling mistake or editing errors. Sue Brown in a new to me author, and this was a perfect introduction to her work. Fabulous little hangover cure, if ever there was one. 4 solid stars **Same worded review will appear elsewhere**

love love LOVE this book!
Nine-Tenths of the Law - L.A. Witt
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian I was gifted my copy of this book. When the stranger tells Zach he has something of his, he never expected that something to be his boyfriend, Jake. But Jake was Nathan's boyfriend too. Chasing after Nathan wasn't supposed to lead to revenge sex but it did. It wasn't supposed to lead to a rebound thing, but it did. It wasn't supposed to cost them their hearts, but it did. I made a new shelf for this kinda book 'too stinking cute' because that's my overwhelming feeling upon finishing, it's too stinking cute. And I do mean that in a really REALLY good way! Like 5 bloody stars good! Zach was only seeing Jake for 6 months but Nathan had him for 4 years. Their coming together riled Jake, and he tried his hardest to split them. Nearly succeeded too. It's not overly dramatic, with low angst, but that angst simmers right through the book, and I really loved that. There is no violence, other than when Zach deals with that particular piece of equipment that is determined to cause him to have a breakdown. The sex scenes are hot off the charts, even for such a cute book. You really feel Zach's emotions for Nathan, right from that very first angry revenge time. What you DONT feel, is Nathan. And ordinarily, I'd say here that's why I took a half or even a whole star off. I'd clarify that I wanted to hear from Nathan and I didn't. I'd moan that it was written first person, single point of view. But But But But Not here. I felt an instant an immediate connection that I don't always get in first person, not while reading anyway. Oh my!! Is this available in AUDIO? Because I would love to listen to it too!! But I digress. Yes, of course I wanted to hear from Nathan I always want more, I know I do, but it didn't affect my enjoyment him not having a say. So, because it's too stinking cute, because I read it in one sitting, even BECAUSE it's only single point of view . . 5 full stars. But I ABSOLUTELY need to listen to this. If I felt Zach reading him, what's it gonna be like listening!?!?!? **same worded review will appear elsewhere**
