Kidnapped by the Pirate
Kidnapped by the Pirate: Gay Romance - Keira Andrews

“You are no man’s lesser. Least of all mine. And the love I have for you is like no other.”

 

For those that know me well and know my favorite MM books, then you are aware that "A Forbidden Rumspringa" is one of my all-time favorite MM Romances. I have read it countless times and while that is a trilogy, for me the first book is where my love gravitates.  And because of that book, I have read nearly everything Keira has written. There are several out there that I have still not gotten to…damn time and all these new releases.  So when this book was released I was most intrigued and when my fellow BRers decided to give this one a go, I needed no further push.

 

And just wow.

 

It is very hard for me to say that Keira may have topped herself with this one but Keira may have topped herself with this one.  This was unbelievable.  The writing is by far the best I have seen from her and while Isaac and David will always be my favorite, I cannot help but place Nathaniel and Hawk right there beside them.

 

They panted, noses touching, chests heaving. With a groan, Nathaniel unhooked his legs from Hawk’s waist, Hawk helping to ease him to his feet. Neither of them was steady, and they remained leaning against the shelter of the tree.

"Only you,” Nathaniel whispered.

 

There are sentiments used in every romance and yet this was a new one for me that was so captivating and spoke so perfectly to this couple.  “Only you.” is definitely one I will remember and associate with them for a long time to come.

 

I highlighted so many scenes…from those with wit and humor to those with just all our heart.

 

Hawk jerked his head up, and then—there. Along with an incredulous laugh, Nathaniel spied a true smile, twin creases in his cheeks, the wrinkles around his blue eyes fanning out, teeth gleaming white, but not with a feral edge. No, it was all gentle and genuine, and Nathaniel imagined he was the only one gifted that sight.

 

I mean, seriously?

 

There was not one thing about this entire book that did not work for me.  The sexual tension between them mounted beautifully and the love that blossomed between them was just unbelievably heartwarming.  And while both of these men have had their difficulties, their histories were so amazingly crafted that their strong character worked perfectly with each other.  I adored the teasing nature of dear Plum.  He was so witty and charming and ultimately just swept Hawk right off his damn feet, gold tipped boots and all. 

 

And I know this is trivial…but my heavens…I love the stories in which Keira choses situations and or time periods in which condoms and conventional lube is non-existent. The animalistic and forbidden aspects of these relationships are just perfection. 

 

I cannot wait to reread this one again and again.  I have no doubts it will remain a favorite for years to come.  And like with "A Forbidden Rumspinga" the only thing that could make this better would be a narration with Spencer Goss. I have said for a long time that he would match up so well with Keira...I hope one day this indeed becomes a reality.

Wonderful Characters
A Beautiful Forgiveness (the NYC Series Book 3) - Alora Kate,Alora Kate,Silvia Curry

Alora Kate wraps up the NYC series with Lucas' story. I've loved Lucas since the beginning of this series and he's certainly pulled at the heartstrings with his unrequited love for Ki, but nothing comes close to the roller coaster ride that is his life in this third installment of the series. Just as he's determined to move on and get on with his life, he's hit with something that he doesn't know how to handle. London and Lucas have so many obstacles to overcome and more than once, I wasn't sure which way their romance would go. This book is certainly the most emotional of the series, but the author knows her stuff and wraps things up perfectly for this crazy and engaging group of characters. The book, as well as the whole series, is beautifully written and these characters are some that I won't soon forget. This is part of a continuing story and I highly recommend the whole series. More than just romance, we get some suspense, action, a bit of intrigue, and best of all, it's filled with friends and family that pull together and stand by each other, faults and all.

I Wore My Blackest Hair by Carlina Duan

 

I honestly don't really understand a lot of poetry and I was hoping this book would be different, because I really do like poetry and want to "get it" better, if that makes sense.

There was pain and beauty in some of the poems, but could not get the meaning behind most of them. Maybe I'm not meant to? Poetry is very personal to the writer. If I related more to Carlina's life, would I understand them better? The writing style was different from how I see a lot of poems, very interesting, but might have been one of the factors in making it hard for me to understand.

Despite not getting most of the poems, I still really enjoyed reading this book. I like that it challenged my brain and made me think.

**Disclaimer, I won an ebook copy through a Goodreads giveaway.**

Dirty Mind
Dirty Mind - Roe Horvat

I have to say, I was not expecting this AT ALL!

Still in such awe over this story and this beautiful writing style. I am not sure if it was the cover or the blurb but this is not at all what I expected to get when I started this book. This was just amazing.

As I was when I finished "The Layover", I am just in a daze and unable to put into words properly my feelings on this book. It is a must read.

I am so anxious for the next story in this "series" and hear it will be full of angst. Bring it Roe.

The Layover
The Layover - Roe Horvat

It was stupid of me. But if you could have your most foolish dream fulfilled only for a few days, would you fight it, or would you make the most of it?

 

I am absolutely mezmerized by this author's words.  The second and final book at this point that has been published, I just cannot wait to get my hands on more.

 

The setting, circumstance and backgrounds to these men are captured beautifully and their connection is just magical.  

 

Not much more I can say at this point.  Still in a daze.
