THE SHARING KNIFE PASSAGE by LOIS McMASTER BUJOLD
Passage - Lois McMaster Bujold

Audiobook

I keep forgetting how young Fawn is. I like how the Lakewalkers aren't shown as completely good and the farmers mostly bad. Sad middle imagining what happened to the father and the rest of the crew. Enjoyable book/series. I'm planning on reading more of the series.

REVIEW TOUR, EXCERPT & #GIVEAWAY - In My Skin (The Obsidian Files #3) by Shannon McKenna
In My Skin (The Obsidian Files #3) - Shannon McKenna
In My Skin is the third book in The Obsidian Files series, and we catch up with Luke who was kidnapped in book one. He managed to escape by himself, but is so very alone, as he can't remember who he is, or who he needs to contact. This was done deliberately to ensure that the 'bad guys' couldn't get any information from him, but it's left him in a bit of a bind. He has a plan to put it right though, which lands him firmly by Dani's side.
 
The majority of the book is dedicated to Luke and Dani, with the others only appearing briefly. However, they are all together at the ending. Luke is a wonderful combination of being literal, being naive, and being strong alpha-male. Dani is, for the most part, a strong and sassy heroine with her own issues, but I also found her annoying at times. There were times when they SHOULD have talked about things, but instead, they had sex. Lots of sex (although I don't think as much as Noah and Caro did, so that was one bonus).
 
The story was well written, with no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. I enjoyed the pacing, and the transitions from one scene to the next were smooth. Not everyone gets a happy ending, although I am hoping for a miracle! Hopefully I will find out in a later book.
 
If you want a contemporary, science-fiction romance, then I can definitely recommend this.

Wheels Up (Out of Uniform #4) by Annabeth Albert
Wheels Up (Out of Uniform #4) - Annabeth Albert

Wheels Up is the fourth book in the Out of Uniform series, and spend some time with Dustin, Dylan's big brother.

 

Dustin is bisexual, but his family doesn't know. Just as he is about to come out to his family, Dylan beats him to the punchline. Dustin then gets a whole heap of family pressure dumped on his shoulders. His dad wants grand-kids, after all! Plus being a SEAL hasn't always been the best situation to be in if you're gay or bi, so Dustin has stayed firmly in the closet. He has his 'special' time with an online friend though, and that is more than enough for him... or maybe not.

 

Now, I'm not American, and I'm not in the Forces, nor do I know of anyone who is, so the whole fraternisation rules are new to me. That being said, wow! After seeing how distracted Dustin became, I can sort of understand the no relationship part, but to have that enforced to such a degree you can't even be friends??? And I didn't get the enlisted part of it - sorry! However, that didn't stop my enjoyment of this story one iota.

 

I think my heart broke so many times reading this one. The need to be with each other, the wanting to show people, the absolute necessity of keeping it quiet. Dustin and Wes put paid to so many preconceptions - why is it always the big guy who is the bossy top? Big guys need cuddles too! And to be fair, I can see them needing someone else to take charge of them, after being in charge of others for so much of the time.

 

So much steam, so much heartbreak, so much worry, and so much hope. You get a HFN, which I just hope will be enough. Can't wait to read more and find out. There were no editing or grammatical errors that interrupted my reading flow, and I was thoroughly engrossed from start to finish. Absolutely recommended.

On Point (Out of Uniform #3) by Annabeth Albert
On Point (Out of Uniform #3) - Annabeth Albert

On Point is the third book in the Out of Uniform series, and we learn more about Ben and Maddox, who have been known to the reader since Zack and Pike's book.

 

They have been best friends for years, but things have been weird between them lately, and neither of them knows how to make it right. You find out what happened through a series of flashbacks, from both points of view, so you can see the situation for both of them.

 

Oh my goodness, I wanted to give Ben a hug - even knowing he'd push me away! He has been so hurt in the past, and it is affecting his judgement of the present and the future. For Maddox though, he will try. Maddox is a dream of a character. He is tough and gentle, hard and soft. He is a S.E.A.L. who dreams of owning his own bakery, and gets excited about trying new recipes. You wouldn't think these two would match, but they do, if only Pike would let them. Of course, it doesn't quite go according to plan, but they have plenty of steamy fun times on the way.

 

One thing I love about these books is previous characters aren't forgotten. Through cameo appearances, the reader finds out just how they're getting along. Brilliant!

 

There were no editing or grammatical errors that interrupted my reading flow, and I was thoroughly engrossed from start to finish. I am loving this series, and this is definitely my favourite so far. Absolutely recommended.

At Attention (Out of Uniform #2) by Annabeth Albert
At Attention (Out of Uniform #2) - Annabeth Albert

At Attention is the second book in the Out of Uniform series, and we reunite with Lieutenant Apollo Floros, who we met in Zack and Pike's story. We learn more about his past - how he is a grieving widower with two young twin daughters. He is existing with his life, not living it. When a friend asks him for a favour, he looks for a thousand different ways out of it, before he capitulates ungraciously.

 

That is the build up to a slow-burning, gut-churning, emotion-packed story that will get you right in the feels. There is no 'bad guy' in this, just a young hopeful man, and an older, grieving one, who just can't move past his pain. I really felt for Dylan, but couldn't bring myself to hate Apollo either, although I did want to whomp him upside the head a few times.

 

Saying that, there was plenty of heat in here, more than enough to keep me happy! The story didn't suffer for the steamy times though. Everything was in the right place, when it needed to be said or done. Kept on tenterhooks right to the end, I adored this book. I also loved the small cameos from Zack and Pike. So nice to see them still in love.

 

I have no hesitation in recommending this book, or the series, as I am absolutely loving it.
