Castor James – Kindling
Kindling: A Love Story About Scars (The Fire Before Us Book 1) - Castor James

Reviewer: Lucy

Genre: MM Contemporary

3.25 Hearts

 

Review: Silas St Clare is an up-and-coming guitarist who is seriously injured while playing a concert. He lost not only his dream that night but his boyfriend and most of his friends as well. His one loyal friend, Miranda, gave him a tech job at her sound studio and it is here he meets Asher Danes, a rock star in the making.


The two don’t hit it off immediately. Silas has attitude, Asher required a lot of set up that he isn’t using. But as the time passes, we get to see there is more to these guys than meets the eye. Bit by bit, they become friends of sorts and then maybe a little more. Included in this setting is Miranda, and she’s wonderful. “More than anyone else alive, she knew exactly what that flame had cost me.” It isn’t sugar coated, what he lost but it’s not saturated in pity, either.


With just a little bit more, I would have loved this book. As is it, I liked it. I was a little bit lost at times in the beginning but as the story progressed I got caught up in it. I would have liked more character development and more Asher backstory for sure. I liked the music backdrop and adored Miranda!


The story ends as a sort of beginning, not a cliffhanger though, and it is noted that the story of Asher and Silas is to be continued.

Bully by Some Nitwit
Bully - Penelope Douglas

so nice to see the topic of bullying being turned into a romance! that is definitely the way to deal with bullies. they just need hugs and kisses! poor misunderstood bullies. oh so loveable! Jared the manly wittle bully with daddy issues just needs to be wuved by someone. bullies just pick on you because they are secretly in love with you. why even bring up the idea that bullying often causes kids to kill themselves. that's not romantic, yuck!

in the words of one of the most embarrassing reviewers on Goodreads:

"This may make me seem a little crazy- but I will just say it right now. I LOVE JARED. Okay, a lot of people loved Jared by the end of the book. Not me. I loved him the entire time I read this book. He was a jerk. An asshole. A bully. But there was just something about him that pulled me to him... I was rooting for him the whole book, so yay!"

self-esteem much?

gosh the author sure knows the right topic to choose to make some money. not a cynical choice at all! and I see that this is apparently the first book in a series. I wonder what the second book will be called. how about "Date Raper"? the wuveable misunderstood wapist just wants to wuv you!! as long as he's a hunk, who cares?

The Kindling - Jennifer Armstrong,Nancy Butcher A very quick read, but engrossing. Jennifer Armstrong has created a realistic portrayal of what children might do in a post-apocalyptic world without adults, and it's moving, with a great mystery behind it.

Kindling Fire with Snow - Kate McMurray A surprise meeting in his favorite bar, a derailed train and a blizzard who gives a snow day to all "non-essential employees" creates a chance for Seth to get back together with his first boyfriend, Kieran. They met at their summer job when they were seventeen, but haven't seen each other since. Now, more than a decade and several men for both of them later, they might be mature enough to make what was once a mostly innocent summer love into something that lasts.
