Sweet Love at Bayside - Addison Cole

Oh My Goodness…another winner from Addison Cole.    The writing of this book is wonderful, sweet, sexy, and perfect.     The amazing friendship, the beautiful setting, and the oh so sexy Rick Savage make this a book that I could not put down.     I was so into this story that I read it early in the morning, middle of the afternoon, and late at night.   I just could not put it down.   

 

There is enough heat in the story to make the reader blush yet leave the juiciest part up to their imagination.    I loved the teases at Rick and Desiree’s relationship and how they were managing to become a hot steamy couple.   The idea that the better their relationship was meant the better the friends were fed gave glimpses at the heat that happens between them.  

 

Lizzie made me laugh, while she had an extremely small part of in the story she was the one who set it all in motion.   She sent cryptic notes to both her daughters making them rush to the family home in Cape Cod.   Then she ran leaving them with a mess and Cosmos.        While she will never earn a mother of the year award she did make Desiree and Violet come together after years of being apart and she inadvertently got Rick and Desiree to meet each other again.  

 

Addison Cole is so talented and I am so excited to continue this series.    If you are looking for a sweet friendship, heated relationship, and a wonderful story this is the book for you.

Lost in Indigo (Colors of Love Book 1) by V. L. Locey 4 Star Review!
Lost in Indigo - V.L. Locey

Mathieu Beresford was so close to seeing his dream come true.

The thirty-eight-year-old captain of the Buffalo Surge had led his team to the final round of the playoffs with his aggressive defensive play and leadership. During the first game of the championship series, he was taken down, and his leg snapped upon impact with the boards. From his hospital bed, Mathieu watched his team go on to win it all.

Adrift in anger, resentment, and the new direction of his life, he returns to his mansion along the St. Lawrence River. Alone and sulking, Mathieu is not prepared for Indigo Neu to enter his life. The genderflux twenty-year-old botany major signs on to play nursemaid, confidant, and groundskeeper over the summer and slowly leads Mathieu out of his confusion––one tender smile and touch at a time.

The deeper Mathieu falls, the more he wonders if being lost might not be so bad after all.

 

Review

 

I am excited about the start of V.L Locey new series Colors of Love.

This first book in series gives us an age gap romance set on the stunning St. Lawerence River between a pro hockey player and a college student doing gardening for the summer. 

There are a great deal of common tropes here but I think what the book does really well as look at the costs of being closeted as Mat is. It also takes seriously the struggle of coming out in a religous culture (in this case French Canadian Catholic) and when you are from the generation of men just after the highest point of the AIDS epidemic. 

I was a young adult during these time period and newly out as bisexual and going to my first Prides and much of my activism intersected with what was happening in the community around AIDS so I think I have a special infinity for stories that blend the arc of recent LGBTQA history into the characters.

Mat and Indigo are instantly attracted. The love that builds between them is that young tender first love through they both are far from virgins. Indigo's identity as genderflux layers into the plot.

Indigo does think he can handle a relationship on the down low. But he cant's and Mat is confronting the end of his career and coming out.

Despite the high drama of some of the plot points the overall tone of book is sweet and reflective. 

We get a lovely HEA.

4.7 Out Of 5 "Meda Rules" STARS
Crossed (Soul Eater) (Volume 3) by Eliza Crewe (2015-08-13) - Eliza Crewe

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~BOOK BLURB~

Crossed

Eliza Crewe

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

War is here.

 

Full-scale war has erupted between the Crusaders and demons and even Chi has to admit isn’t going well. Like any sensible rat, Meda’s eager to abandon the sinking ship but, unfortunately, her friends aren't nearly as pragmatic. Instead, Meda’s forced to try to keep them all alive until the dust settles.

 

As the Crusaders take more and more drastic measures, the tables turn and Meda suddenly finds herself in the role of voice of sanity. No one is more horrified than she is. When old enemies reappear as new allies and old friends become new enemies Meda has to decide—again—whose side she’s really on.

 

And then the Crusaders decide that Meda should go to Hell. Literally.

 

Can’t a monster ever catch a break?

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~MY QUICKIE REVIEW~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

A completely spoiler free review for all three books in the series.  I have a couple of questions for Eliza Crewe…

 

  • The first one…was your proofreader so into this story, that they ended up missing a ton of typos because there were so many?  They kept taking me out of the story…so annoying.  Ugh.  I don't remember the first two books being this badly in need of proofreading.  Anyway, other than getting a tad preachy, this is my only complaint about this book.

 

  • The second question…how come you've never written anything else besides this series???

 

This series despite those typos is exceptional.  It's not only darkly imaginative, it also has one of the best heroines ever.  Meda's so unapologetically snarky, and she does so without making my eye's roll…which I've found, lately, can be difficult to do.  The rest of the characters round out this ensemble quite nicely.  And the interesting dynamics going on this edition of The Soul Eaters Series made this to be a splendid finale.

Every Time We Fall In Love (The Sullivans: New York) by Bella Andre
Every Time We Fall In Love - Bella Andre

 

From the hardest goodbye to the sweetest hello, Harry and Molly get under the skin and make their way into your soul. Every Time We Fall in Love is at the mercy of time and the hands of fate. Andre spins a tale of love lost and hope revisited with characters that are as real as they are flawed. The first time around family got in the way. Ironic that the circumstances that broke them apart could be the catalyst that gives them a new beginning. I'm swept away every time I read a Bella Andre novel.

Raised all over the country, I'm a interesting mix of East Coast meets West Coast with a little bit of Southern thrown in, just for good measure. I married a sexy man in uniform who let me spawn and am now raising a mutinous army of hell raisers that I created myself, all while he defends our country. I drink too much coffee until it's late enough to drink too much wine and am sexually frustrated for your freedom. If you see me online, I'm probably sitting in a closet, hiding from my kids.

Fluent in sarcasm, Supernatural, and song lyrics, I like talking to people and finding what makes them tick, though that probably has to do with the Psychology degree. I’m up before the sun because my kids don’t sleep, chugging tea and coffee to keep my eyes open and my brain semi functional. Being married to a man in uniform means I’ve lived a lot of places, survived seeing my husband for half the amount of time I’ve been married, and spent a lot of time raising my kids alone.  I love to write messed up psychos with lots of angst, happily ever afters that have to be worked for. Women with sass and backbone, men with a twisted hero complex and the need to control are my favorite to read as well as write.
