I'm not liking Luke and Ash!
Sweet Possession (Nights Series #5) - A.M. Salinger
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. This is book 5 in the Nights series, and you should AT LEAST read book 4, Sweet Obsession before this one, this is a continuation of Ash and Luke's story. I LOVED books one through three, but four and now five, have been a bit of a let down. Maybe I just don't like Luke and Ash, you know?? This has a little bit of a story, thrown in with some hot and steamy stuff, and a lot of Luke being a total twat of an idiot thinking about what he thinks Ash needs. And rather than talking to Ash, he runs. Much like Cam did when Gabe says those three little words. I loved that Ash could make the famous Luke Rutherford lose his cool and totally let himself go and take from, and indeed GIVE to, Ash, what they both really need. Loved that we get an appearance from Gabe and Cam, and Ethan and Joe. I dunno WHY these two books didn't quite work for me, I really don't and you KNOW how much it pains me not being able to word the feelings! BUT!! In book 3, I saw something going on between the two guys who own the company Gabe works for. THEIR story is next, and I cannot wait to read it! So, I'm sorry, but... 3 stars (but please keep these coming!) **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

another scorching hot one!
Tokyo Heat (Nights Series #3) - A.M. Salinger
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. This is book three in the series, and you really SHOULD read book one, One Night, first. This is a continuation of Gabe and Cam's story. And it's a 5 star read! Book two, The Escort ain't too shabby either! A year ago, Cam and Gabe decided one night would never be enough. Then Gabe says those three little words and Cam's world implodes, and he runs. I loved One Night, made a new shelf for it and everything. But, while still a great, sexy read, I found this one lacking in the emotions i expected with someone running when told I love you. Oh! Don't get me wrong, these guys still burn high, and hot and long. I just didn't feel connected to Cam as much as I did to Gabe. Because we get Gabe dealing, or rather NOT dealing with the fact that Cam ran, but we don't get much of Cam after he runs, you know?? BUT OH.MY.GOD! When Cam pulls his head out of his ass and gets his act together and finally realises what that pain in his chest is?? That it's what he's feeling for Gabe?? He redeems himself in spectacular fashion! **that fanning again, girls!** I saw something going on between the two guys who own the company Gabe works for. I wonder what's going on there and whether they will get a story?? It's not book 4 or 5, cos I have those all lined up ready to go, but I HOPE they get a story! Ah, you know what?? Stuff it! I wrote 4 stars at the top of the page because of that not connecting to Cam thing. But now I'm typing it up, I think that's just CAM, you know?? He doesn't want you to know what he feels for Gabe, what he's dealing with while they are apart. He wants GABE to know, just how deeply he loves him. He DOES love Gabe, he just never thought he could love anyone. So! Upgrading to... 5 even more scorching stars! **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

REVIEW BY DEBBIE - Tokyo Heat (Nights Series #3) by A.M. Salinger
Tokyo Heat (Nights Series #3) - A.M. Salinger

I want him. I love him. But I don't know if he feels the same way about me — Gabe

 

I cherish him. I need him. But I don't think I have any love left to give him — Cam

 

A year has passed since Cam Sorvino challenged Gabe Anderson to grant him one night of torrid sex. Now living together and settled in a scorching hot relationship, Cam is happy with things as they are. Until the day Gabe says the three little words Cam is most afraid to hear. 

 

Having overcome the terrible scars of his own past, Gabe knows Cam still has his own demons to fight. But when Gabe inadvertently confesses his love, he can only watch helplessly as Cam distances himself from their relationship.

 

Will Cam’s fear of having his heart ripped apart drive away the only man he’s ever truly cared for? Or will Gabe finally convince Cam to dare embrace a future with him?

 

Find out if Gabe and Cam find their happy ever after in this third novella in the hot, contemporary romance series Nights by A.M. Salinger. Note from the author: Although each book in Nights can be read as a standalone, you will enjoy this series even more if you read the books in order!

This is a novella length MM romance with a HEA.

 

@debbiereadsbook, @xpressoreads, #M_M, #Contemporary, #Romance, 5 out of 5 (exceptional)

Erwachsen sein dagegen sehr
Der Fänger im Roggen (Taschenbuch) - J.D. Salinger,Eike Schönfeld

Ach Holden, wie vielen Jugendlichen geht es so wie dir? Kein Kind mehr und auch noch kein Erwachsener. Wie schwer es ist sich manchmal in der Welt zurechtzufinden. Seinen Platz zu behaupten, vor allem wenn man das Gefühl hat, dass es keinen Platz für einen gibt. 

Es wundert mich nicht, dass das Buch damals als sehr kontrovers eingestuft wurde und mitunter verboten war. Es geht um nichtgesellschaftswillige Jugendliche, Alkoholkonsum, Homosexualität, Identitätskrise und psychische Probleme. Darüber redet man aber auch wirklich nicht...

 

"Unter anderem wirst du erkennen, dass du nicht der Erste bist, der vom menschlichen Verhalten verwirrt und verängstigt und sogar angewidert ist." 

Und während des Lesens fragt man sich, ob Holden eben nur ein rebellischer Jugendlicher ist, der nicht gewillt ist beim "American dream" mitzumachen oder ob er vielleicht doch ernstere Probleme hat, wie zum Beispiel den nicht verarbeiteten Tod seines Bruders. 

Zurecht ein Klassiker!

The Catcher in the Rye - J.D. Salinger

Don't ever tell anybody anything. If you do, you start missing everybody. 

 

J.D. Salinger

 

July 16, 1951: J.D. Salinger's Catcher in the Rye was published 66 years ago today. The novel's title is actually a misquote of sorts—the result of narrator Holden Caulfield mishearing Robert Burns' poem, Comin thro' the Rye.
