oh! I LOVED this one!!
Unbroken Hearts - K-lee Klein
Independent reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted my copy of this book. My apologies to Ms Klein, this should have been a Release day review, but that darn dayjob got in the way! And a little warning. I may gush in this review :-) So, this is book two, and you really REALLY MUST read book one, Unbreak My Heart before you jump into this one. Some may say not totally necessary but I say it is. And you'll need a box of tissues for that read! While this one doesn't carry emotions that cause your heart to break into a million tiny pieces, get stomped on, and glued back together in the slowest way, it DOES carry a lotta love. Like so much love, its not funny! Like so much love my sister would say "pass the bucket!" JT and Brett have been together a couple months and are very much in love. But they are both still dealing with the past. What this book is about, is them dealing with that past in ways only JT and Brett can. AND IT IS GLORIOUS! I read this book in one sitting. Stayed up way past my bedtime. Was not present at the dayjob next day. I just could not put it down! It is, by far, the most too stinking cute AND warm and fuzzies book I've read for a long time. I mean, its hilarious watching JT work himself up into a tizzy about Valentines Day. Watching them deal with Mama and Halloween, and Christmas. It is painful reading about Brett dealing that darn barn, but that pain is overshadowed by the LOVE that jumps off every page, it really is. I LISTENED to the first book. I am praying to every deity known to man, and then some, that the powers that be will get this book narrated once again by Nick J Russo. Because while I loved reading this book, I could hear Russo in my head but the voices were all wrong. So, I'm a-praying. Its so very rare we get a follow up story to one that was such a heart wrenching read. Brett and JT fought hard to get their act together and reading this, over the course of their year, was amazing, and I really REALLY loved it. But I just gotta say, even though this book was perfect, and Brett already said he wasn't the kind for pieces of paper to say how much he loved the kid, I wanted a marriage proposal! Had there been a wedding?? I'd never have been able to find the right words! An amazing 5 star read!! **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

too stinking cute! loved this!
Textual Relations - Cate Ashwood
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. Henry gets a wrong number about a date,so he decides to turn up at the date to let Ash know HER date wasn't coming. But Ash is short for Asher and Henry finds himself on a date, with a guy. This book landed in my queue at the right time for me. It's short, and cute, and mostly stress free and its a perfect hang over cure!! It's told only from Henry's point of view, in the first person and this is the ONLY reason I didn't give it 5 stars, because Ash didn't have his say. I loved how Henry didn't see what was happening with him and Ash, til it hit him like a freight train. Loved how he didn't question it too much either, he just went with the flow and enjoyed it. It's a really easy read, some 100 pages, took me just over an hour. It's light hearted in places, not overly explicit, and mostly drama free. It gets a little hairy when Henry introduces Ash to his brother, but that's because of how it happens, rather than the fact he is introducing his brother to a MAN when he still thinks Ash is a girl! A too stinking cute read, but not quite a warm and fuzzys one as well. Very well written,with no spelling or editing errors I spotted. 4 stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

short and so deliciously sweet!
The Botanist: Short Story - Claire Smith,Hot Tree Editing,Dahlia Donovan
I was gifted my copy of this book direct from the author, that I write a review was not required. This is book 2.5 in the Sin Bin series, but you don't need to have read book one, The Wanderer, and book two, The Caretaker, to follow this one. BUT! You should. Not least of which they are both 5 star reads, but because I said SO!! US Navy Seal Wyatt is sent on a mission jointly with the Royal Marines and rescues Aled, a botanist caught in the cross fire of a drug smuggling ring, and has been tortured. Wyatt finds himself at odds with his career and his feelings for the young man. Aled relishes the calls and texts from Wyatt, but are his feelings real, or just a PTSD symptom?? I LURVE this one!! Its oh so deliciously; short and sweet, and a huge helping of warm and fuzzies! Ms Donovan does short and sweet so well! Oh, don't get me wrong, the longer books are great and fab and have that cute/fuzzies feeling but the short ones seem to carry it so much more! What I particularly liked about this book, is what's NOT here, it's what is missing. It is almost clean. Bar one scene at the end, there is no sex! And if you follow my reviews, you'll know I do prefer my books, male/male ones especially, on the more explicit side. So, for me to say that I really REALLY loved it, well, says something! AND OH!!!! I just remembered! I said the exact same thing in Ms Donovan's very FIRST book, Ivy! Full circle, we've come full circle. Some of the other guys in the series are mentioned, and we meet some new ones. Hamish, especially, he is the lead Royal Marine and has his story next, book 3, The Royal Marine. Short and sweet, too stinking cute AND warm and fuzzies, cos let me tell ya, they are not the same thing! 5 full stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

warm and fuzzies, people, warm and fuzzies!
Without a Compass - Helen Juliet Without a Compass - Helen Juliet
I was gifted my copy of this book direct from the author, that I write a review was not required. Riley goes with his family camping. Riley HATES camping, but it's his father's 50th birthday and he hasn't been for a few years. He just packs everything but the kitchen sink to take along with him. Kai is Riley's older brother's best friend, and had been Riley's crush many years ago. But Kai is straight, and totally out of Riley's reach, right?? Warm and fuzzies, too stinking cute and a delicious book if ever there was one! Kai has, up to now, only been with girls. But Riley is all grown up now, and Kai begins to have feelings, thoughts, that maybe he isn't as straight as he thought. A game of truth or dare clears Kai's head and he just runs with it. What will be, will be. I am ETERNALLY thankful that Ms Juliet wrote this book from both guys point of view! I was a little concerned that it might not, and I would have wrote some scathing comment but it is SOOOOOOOOOOO not needed! With Kai going much against his nature, he needed his say. Because we needed to know what was going through his head, and we get it! We get his reaction to that kiss, his feelings about what some of the others did to Riley years ago, his feelings of overwhelming protectiveness to Riley when he realises Riley is hurt. We get it all!! Its not overly explicit, but this book didn't need to be. There is no real breakup, no major drama to deal with, bar a pair of twins who really just need to grow the hell up. Its full of emotion though! Riley's trying to keep his distance from Kai, and failing miserably. Kai's ever growing attraction to Riley and his fight to stop, then run with, it. This is the second book of Ms Juliet's I've read, that too, was a five star read. Keep them coming, please!! 5 stars. **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

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**
