An instant favorite for me; a chance to mend a friendship AFTER a death in this 'Six Feet Under meets Pushing Daisies' tale
The Past and Other Things that Should Stay Buried - Shaun David Hutchinson
 

Well, damn...another Shaun David Hutchinson book that’s going on my favorites list. There’s something about his writing that makes me laugh, brings tears to my eyes, and makes me think about both the dark and lighter sides of life. He writes about relationships between people in a way that no one else can.

And animating the Dead for this one made me read through it hoping like crazy that everyone could have the same chance that these amazing two characters, Dino and July, have. The chance to say our goodbyes properly and appreciate the people we love while they’re still around.

 

 

Check out my other favorite of Shaun David Hutchinson's, The Apocalypse of Elena Mendoza

Review: "The Other Book" by Roe Horvat
The Other Book - Roe Horvat

I'm sad to say that this book left me a little disappointed. After all those rave reviews, I expected something… more. Something more steamy, more kinky, more filthy. I dunno.

 

 

I wouldn’t even call this book "erotica". In my opinion, this was simply a romance novella with just a lot of sex scenes. And to be honest, those sex scenes weren't even especially outstanding or unique. I've read many other books with much dirtier sex than here.

 

And as for the romance aspect, the relationship went WAY too fast from "I hate him!" to "I want him!" to "I love him!" for my taste. I also couldn’t really connect to the MCs since I barely got to know them in the beginning (some build-up in the first few chapters would have been nice). So when it came to the more emotional stuff in the last 25%, I simply didn't care at this point. 

 

 

So I’m going with 3.5 stars. It wasn’t really the kinky fuck-fest that I was hoping for (#sadface), and for a romance it lacked exposition and character/relationship development for me.

 

But it was an ok read. Nothing more, but also nothing less.

 

 

 

~ 3.5 stars ~

Review: "Boy Shattered" by Eli Easton
Boy Shattered - Eli Easton

Dark but not depressing.

 

Angsty but not hopeless.

 

Heavy but with a silver lining.

 

Relevant but not preachy.

 

And since this is Eli Easton, very heartbreaking yet also very romantic.

 

There's a reason she is a favorite author of mine.

 

PS: The mystery aspect felt a little out of place, but I wasn't really bothered by that.

 

PPS: Brian’s dad can go step on a Lego.

Review: "Unbreakable Stories: Rowe" (Unbreakable Bonds, #3.5) by Jocelynn Drake & Rinda Elliott
Unbreakable Stories: Rowe - Rinda Elliott,Jocelynn Drake

SURPRISE! Guess what? I loved this compilation of short stories too, just like every other book from this series.

 

 

Other than that, I really don't know how to proper review this book, other than repeating myself that I absolutely LOVE those characters, I LOVE this universe, I LOVE the feelz between each couple, I LOVE the writing and I absolutely LOVE these shorts.

 

And the best part? My sweet little Ian's book is next!

 

 

I might need a chill pill for that.
