Sweet Story
The Second Quarterback: Gay Sports First Time Romance - Van Cole

A fast, sweet story. I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of back story given, considering the length of the book. Alex and Garrett have chemistry and while there is some steam, it's not what the story is about. The lead in is good and the book is about the getting to know each other phase at the beginning of a relationship. It's short and to the point without a lot of fluff and with its happy for now ending, it's the perfect length and content for an enjoyable lunchtime read.

Light, fun read
Eligible Receiver: A First Time Gay Romance (Bareback University) - Angel Lovecox

Angel Lovecox's newest addition to the Bareback University series is a novella length, fun read. It is instant attraction and pretty darn quick love, but that's to be expected, considering its length. That aside, the character's are likable and Isaiah and Carter are so cute together, especially with Carter being so timid and unsure of himself. The angst level on this one is pretty low and straight-forward. Isaiah is a popular football player, a sport loaded with Alpha males, so of course, coming out would be a problem. The book's fast pace has the issue resolved quickly, making for a light, happy read that leaves you with a smile.

My Thoughts

 

I've been reading this type of book a lot lately and I have say that this one has a completely different feel to it, not bad, just different.  The narrator, Cassie, is very subdued, like she doesn't allow herself to truly feel, and ultimately the story feels both authentic and implausible at the same time.  My feelings though, were all over the place, I was kind of spastic, even.  I wanted to yell at this girl so many times, and especially her mother.  Her Dad is no winner either, because he basically enables the mother.  This is one kid badly in need of someone to actually listen to her.  This book really made me appreciate having a loving, normal mother, even if she was taken from me too soon.  How anyone can be so fucked in head and still be allowed to breed, is just unfathomable, because loving your kid is suppose to be the easy part.

  

Will I read more from this Author⇜ I would.

I finished a much loved series this month...The Naturals.  with the final book in the 4 book series, Bad Blood...loved it, btw.  I also really enjoyed the conclusion to Vicarious Duo, with Ferocious, which I received an ARC of.

 

I also finished up a few reading challenges, 3 of them this month, actually.  A few of the books I've read this month were read just for this purpose.  Like the Breakup Support Group, Stalking Jack The Ripper and The First Time She Drowned.  I'm actively trying to start less of these so I can finish some of the super long ones.
