Play Hard (Glasgow Lads #4.5)
Play Hard - Avery Cockburn

This was very sweet and very porny. Way too porny. I had a hunch going in due to the blurb, which is why I borrowed this one instead of bought it, and I'm glad I did. There were just too many sex scenes for such a short book and most of them I couldn't be bothered to read. But if you're looking for a pornmance, this should definitely scratch that itch.


What I did like was seeing how Robert and Liam are still navigating their way through their new relationship. They've been together romantically for a little over a year, but they've been best friends for sixteen years, and sometimes those old BFF patterns can tame down the flames of romance. I liked how Robert came to a new appreciation of Liam, and how Liam was able to eventually open up to Robert about his fears of the future.


I also really liked the scene where Evan and Liam talked. Liam still hasn't warmed back up to Evan, so it was nice to see Evan helping him sort out his thoughts and feelings. Now that I like Evan, I want all the Warriors to like him again too. :D

Hard Magic / Laura Anne Gilman
Hard Magic - Laura Anne Gilman

Welcome to P.U.P.I.—Private, Unaffiliated, Paranormal Investigations

A handpicked team trained to solve crimes the regular police can't touch—crimes of magic.

My name's Bonnie Torres. Recent college grad, magic user and severely unemployed. Until I got a call out of nowhere to interview for a job I hadn't applied for. It smelled fishy, but the brutal truth was I needed the work—so off I went.

Two days later I'm a PUPI—me and Nick, Sharon, Nifty and Pietr. Five twentysomethings, thrown into an entirely new career in forensic magic.

The first job we get is a doozy: proving that the deaths of two Talents were murder, not suicide. Worse, there are high-profile people who want us to close up shop and go away. We're sniffing out things they'd rather keep buried.

Looks as if this job is gonna get interesting. The only problem is, we're making it up as we go along….


I loved the basic ideas of this book--that magic would leave a signature and that a CSI-like team of people could solve crimes via their Talent. It has great potential. However, I felt like there should have been more action and less agony in this first volume. Bonita is a pretty good main character, but she does an awful lot of personal analysis (mostly about the men in her life). She desperately needs a female friend--someone to talk to so that the reader doesn’t have to listen to her inner monologue quite so often. Perhaps in the next book, but the only other female character in this one doesn’t seem to have good chemistry with Bonnie. 

Still, I liked the book enough that I will look for the next volume. The trick is going to be finding it! My library doesn’t have it and I just happened to find this one at my favourite used bookshop. Looks like I will be using interlibrary loan once again.

I do think that the name of the magic community, the Cosa Nostradamus, is genius! Giving the impression of the mafia combined with magic, you realize just what the PUPI organization is up against. Add to that the mysterious Fatae, fae-like creatures, that exist in this version of New York, but haven’t been utilized to their full potential in this first volume. I do hope that they feature more prominently in future books.

Review: Strange the Dreamer (Strange the Dreamer #1) by Laini Taylor
Strange the Dreamer - Laini Taylor

The dream chooses the dreamer, not the other way around—and Lazlo Strange, war orphan and junior librarian, has always feared that his dream chose poorly. Since he was five years old he’s been obsessed with the mythic lost city of Weep, but it would take someone bolder than he to cross half the world in search of it. Then a stunning opportunity presents itself, in the person of a hero called the Godslayer and a band of legendary warriors, and he has to seize his chance or lose his dream forever.

What happened in Weep two hundred years ago to cut it off from the rest of the world? What exactly did the Godslayer slay that went by the name of god? And what is the mysterious problem he now seeks help in solving?

The answers await in Weep, but so do more mysteries—including the blue-skinned goddess who appears in Lazlo’s dreams. How did he dream her before he knew she existed? And if all the gods are dead, why does she seem so real?

Welcome to Weep.

I did it …. I finally read and finished this book. I’m so glad I did.  I did really enjoy this book but it took me a while to get into it. I started it twice put it back , started it again and feel into a reading slump….I didn’t put it back down this time,  I just kept at it really slow and read a few pages every day and I’m glad for it.

Once I got into it, I absolutely loved the word Laini Taylor created with this book.  I liked that is was not too massive while we still get good sized world(s) and with plenty of Characters, quiet few actually, since we get sort of a split world. It’s hard to explain without spoiling it. I really enjoyed all characters, even the not so nice ones.  While I might not have liked them as a person,  I enjoyed the way they were written and portrait.

I wasn’t really sure at first who the villain will be and I liked that we had two candidates and both came through a bit at the end. Just one more than the other.

Of course I loved Lazlo and enjoyed his fresh view and of course his love for books, but I was pretty sure there is more to him than they let us believe in the beginning.  I also enjoyed Eril- Fane and his Mother a lot, he sure was a kind but tortured soul.

I wasn’t so sure about Sarai in the beginning but I ended up loving her……. And her relationship with Lazlo, or the more and less what they had for one that is…….

While I enjoyed their time together it was also a bit odd and left a few things open and questioned by me but overall I really loved it. 

Minya was someone I really didn’t like and that never changed….. I just disliked her more and more the more we get into the story. Thyron was someone I’m on the edge on, even now that I’m done… I think more is to come about him …. Maybe .

The ending… while some things I saw coming early on other things were a complete shock to me. I was in awe, how she could end it with such a cruel cliffhanger.

Overall I loved this book, and while I loved her writing but  I thought it was dragging on a bit and was sort of glad for the end of the book. But I’m really looking forward to read the next book and see how she ended it.

 I rate it 4 ★
