freaking LOVED this!
Bone to Pick - TA Moore Bone to Pick - TA Moore
I won an early ARC copy of this book, for my honest opinion. Cloister is a man with a dog. Bournville is his best friend and she always finds what she is looking for. When called in to help search for a missing ten year old boy, Cloister is and Bon Bon are again boughtinto contact with FBI agent Javi. Against a back drop of cold cases running hot again, Cloister and Javi must work together to bring the child home alive. This is the first book of TA Moore's I have read, I do have Dog Days to read and I will pull that to the top of the TBR pile, because I freaking LOVED this!! Cloister and Javi have, quite clearly, come into contact before and Javi made his opinion of Cloister as just a dog man perfectly clear. Here though, Javi's mind and indeed, his body are running off a whole nother page! But what I really liked is, we don't get the full picture of that meeting. You get enough to keep you wondering, but only JUST enough. Loved that! The guys attraction to each other creeps up on them. It's not an instant thing. But when they get it on?? oh hell yeah! And after?? Oh, that was brilliant! Random thoughts, things said, or the way they were said set each guy off. You never knew just what would cause the reactions! Loved that! Well played there, Ms Moore, very well played! I couldn't see where the missing child storyline was going until it was revealed in the book and I do so LURVE being kept on my toes. And I did NOT see the way that went down coming at me, not at all. There are some interesting comments and hints about Cloister's family and his history. Hints that left you with questions. Questions that need answering in another book. Because there HAD better be another books! There isn't a happy ever after as such for the guys, more a happy for now. Both men have commitment issues that will take some working through before they get their HEA. So, again, another book, Ms Moore! So, Because I almost read it in one sitting but the darn dayjob got in the way. Because I'm left with so many questions about their meeting before, and about Cloister's family. Because because because, oh just bloody because. . . . . 5 full and shiny stars, even if they are covered in dog hair! **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

The Alpha and His Ace (The Alpha and His Ace #1) by Ana J. Phoenix Review
The Alpha and His Ace - Ana J. Phoenix

Young, handsome, and the alpha of his wolf pack, Brandon has never had trouble finding men to have sex with. Only one thing is missing--his mate. Brandon can’t find him, and the rest of his pack is growing concerned about his lack of partner. An alpha needs a strong partner.

Things seem to be looking up when he finally finds his fated companion in Aidan. One problem—Aidan’s asexual, and Brandon’s now confused. Who doesn’t want sex? Aidan, that’s who. And Brandon hasn’t got a clue how to make someone love him without it.

It's going to take some serious self-examination, acceptance, and some really good cake for Brandon to make his way into Aidan’s heart.

 

Review

 

A pretty bland wolf shifter romance made more interesting by the fated mate being asexual.

 

The world building needed much more detail but the characters and character driven conflict was intersting. Needed more time.

Quiet Nights (Mangrove Stories #2) by Mary Calmes Review
Quiet Nights - Mary Calmes

It’s a lovely little life Kelly Seaton leads. He’s got his own landscaping business, a nice little house, and his best friend, Cosimo Renaldi, and Coz’s goofball family who have adopted Kelly as their own. Sure, it’s a little lonely at night, but it’s a sweet deal, and Kelly can’t chance ruining it by letting on that he wants more—has always wanted more—with Coz.

Then Kelly’s past comes to town, bringing bad memories and hurt feelings that start to break Kelly down, and Coz just doesn’t understand why Kelly won’t let him be the support and strength that Kelly’s always been for him. They’ve already been through war, Coz’s devastating injury, and starting new careers in Mangrove, Florida. Why shouldn’t they face their chaotic pasts and build their future of quiet nights… together?

 

Review

 

There is a ton to like in this little novella. Its funny and charming. The family is wonderful. I like small towns and love friends to lovers.

The plot zips along and the heroes both grow and change.

What isn't that enjoyable as I don't really understand what held them back I don't get to enjoy them being together. It is a bit slap dash in this way.

difficult but AMAZING reading!
Page of Tricks (Inheritance Book 5) - Am... Page of Tricks (Inheritance Book 5) - Amelia Faulkner
I was gifted a copy of this book direct from the author, that I write a review was not required but I am doing!! Because, people!! You NEEEEEEEEED to read these books!! This is book 5 in the Inheritance series, and you really REALLY need to read books one, Jack of Thorns, book two, Knight of Flames and book 3, Lord of Ravens. Book 4, Reeve of Veils, is not really required but if you do read it, you might have issues with Freddie, I did!!! Freddie has been tasked with ruining Quentin by their father, and the only way he knows how to do that, is by ruining Laurence. So he kidnaps Laurence and takes him to England, forcing Quentin to follow. A battle of wits there follows, and its unclear just who will come out alive. Struggling to word what I need to say, without giving too much of the plot away, so forgive me if I waffle! These books (bar book four, because I HATED Freddie in that book!) are all 5 stars reads and this one did NOT disappoint. We get more about just what happened to Quentin at the hands of his father, and Quentin gets it too, after blocking it out for so many years. Its a wonder the man isn't insane! It's painful reading, really painful and you do feel a kind of .....Lord help me for saying so.... you feel a bit sorry for the Duke, because HE suffered too, and HIS father and so on. Makes you kinda see the WHY he did what he did, kinda, sorta. Oh please don't hate me, I'm just trying to get how I feel out!! Laurence and Quentin spend much of this book apart, but when they come together at the end??? OOOOOOOOOOOOOOEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!! |Those boys is getting their dirty on, yes ma'am, they certainly are! Maybe with Quentin finally admitting, at least to himself, what went on, he can fully embrace his relationship with Laurence. Oh. And Windsor, the raven is just too darn cute here. His connection to Laurence as his familiar is growing as Windsor does, becoming stronger. Can't wait to see what happens there! And wouldn't you, the baby's first word is POOP! I'm loving that, at the end, there is a epilogue, from we know not who. Who throws a spanner in the works. Who makes you think "WTF" over and over. So I'm loving that, because I cannot see where this all is going! LOVE being kept on my toes. Love not knowing whats gonna come at me. Very dark, with sexual abuse and drug abuse here, so some readers may find these books difficult reading. BUT amazing, really amazing books!! Thank you, Ms Faulkner, for me copy. 5 full stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

3 GOOD solid stars
The Palisade (Lavender Shores) - Rosalind Abel
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. Heir to a coffee shop empire, Joel is in Lavender Shores to secure a property for their flagship store. Andrew was only supposed to be a bit of fun while in town. But then the overnight stay turns into a weekend, and Joel finds himself in far deeper with Andrew than he ever imagined could be; Joel knows when he leaves, and he HAS to leave, it won't only break Andrew's heart, Joel's will be shattered too. First person, multi point of view is not my most favourite way for a book to be written but I quite liked it here. Didn't love it, but I liked it. It got me a little more into both man's mind. While It's very clear that Joel is hiding something from Andrew, it's not immediately clear what that is. I liked being kept waiting. I'm not one for declarations of love so early on, and it happens here. Put me off a little bit, to be honest. BUT! major points for not shortened Andrew, not at all! A really easy read, one of those you can fall into, and lose the world around you, and before you know it, you've finished the book and it did not seem like the 200 odd pages listed on Goodreads. A touch long for a usual hangover cure book, but it landed in my queue just at the right time to be classed as one. I've filed it as such. I have book two to read shortly. I am looking forward to that because there are hints here to what happened to Gilbert, Andrew's best friend. And I want to know more. I'm thinking, from those hints, that book might have a little more bite. 3 GOOD solid stars. **same worded review will appear elsewhere**
