A Gentleman Never Keeps Score (Seducing the Sedgwicks, #2) by Cat Sebastian 4 Star Review!
A Gentleman Never Keeps Score - Cat Sebastian

Once beloved by London's fashionable elite, Hartley Sedgwick has become a recluse after a spate of salacious gossip exposed his most-private secrets. Rarely venturing from the house whose inheritance is a daily reminder of his downfall, he’s captivated by the exceedingly handsome man who seeks to rob him.

 

Since retiring from the boxing ring, Sam Fox has made his pub, The Bell, into a haven for those in his Free Black community. But when his best friend Kate implores him to find and destroy a scandalously revealing painting of her, he agrees. Sam would do anything to protect those he loves, even if it means stealing from a wealthy gentleman. But when he encounters Hartley, he soon finds himself wanting to steal more than just a painting from the lovely, lonely man—he wants to steal his heart.

 

Review

 

It took me a bit to relax into this book and trust the Cat Sebastian would be able to give me a happily ever after in this queer interracial historical romance. 

She does. The writing is lovely and detailed. Sam and Hart make a wonderful couple. 

Hart is in crisis and has to reexamine so many things as his life is upended after he is exposed for being a kept man. He has to come to terms with the truth that through it felt like a choice to support his family, the power dynamics at play make "choice" such a complex concept. 

Sam has to decide to have someone for himself.

Lines of class, race, and sexuality weave together. 

The romance charming, hot, and sweet and feels possible. 

The secondary characters really engaging as Hart builds new and better connections. 

I would have like to know more about the Free Black community and felt that the aspects of the plot to due with Hart's brothers depended too much on the first book but overall so well written and engaging.

kinda creeps up on ya!
Edge Jump - Elizabeth Noble
Independent reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted my copy of this book direct from the author, that I write a review was not required. Brett retired from professional ice hokey and now runs the centre his parents set up, to teach. His sister, Celia and her partner, Rylan, has moved onto ice dancing. But a senseless crime takes Celia away from both Brett and Rylan, and brings them both together at their darkest time. Then Rylan is hit with a far worse tragedy. Can they get through this, together? You know, sometimes, you read a blurb, and your brain plots away, and that's what you expect from the book?? Then the book actually goes off in a way you did not see coming?? And you loved it for it?? This book, right here! I have NO idea what I thought would happen here, but I was very surprised with it! It really did kinda-creep-up-on-me!! Brett and Rylan have chemistry, right from the start. But Brett keeps himself back a bit, and it pulls at you, the way Rylan reacts to that. There is a lot of pulling on the heart strings here! I loved the way Brett gradually introduced Rylan to BDSM, and that Rylan took to it, like a duck to water. I didn't think it overly explicit though and I LIKED that here, but that might just be me! I did not get how Celia and her fiance's deaths would play out. Did NOT see that one coming at me, not at all! Rylan's recovery from what happened is long and painful, but you feel it **taps chest* right here. Every time his brain threw self doubt at him. Every time Brett pulled him out of it, and you cheer, when he finally is able to get back on the ice. And when Rylan listens to Brett when he says "I'm not going anywhere!" I've read a couple of other books by Ms Noble, and I do like how she can switch from paranormal, to contemporary, to more sexy books. High skill of an author, I think! It crept up on, this book, it really did! 4.5 stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

On the Ice (Stick Side #1) by Amy Aislin 3.5 Review!
On the Ice (Stick Side #1) - Amy Aislin

For college sophomore Mitch Greyson, determination and persistence are the name of the game if he wants to make it as a professional hockey player. A busy schedule of practices, games, classes, homework, two part-time jobs—and now, working with a tutor to help him pass the class he’s failing so that he can keep his scholarship—shouldn’t leave him with enough time to flirt with the NHL player in town. But that doesn’t stop him.

Placed on the injured reserve list until his broken arm heals, NHL defenseman Alex Dean is using the time off to be with his ailing grandfather and get a head start on the book he’s been commissioned to write. He doesn’t expect to get roped into a tutoring gig, especially not for cocky, smart-ass Mitch.

But Alex soon discovers that there’s more to Mitch than meets the eye...and he really likes what he sees. Only Alex doesn’t dare risk his NHL career by coming out, and a relationship between them would jeopardize Mitch’s chances with the organization too.

It looks impossible. Then again, the best things usually do...

 

Review

 

I loved the romance at the center of the book between Mitch and Alex. Mitch's first cocky bold approach and then Alex demanding he be real.

As Alex is demisexual, we get a slow burn romance which creates lots of space for emotionial connection. 

Alex is just a solidly great guy and so comfortable in his own skin. 

Mitch is really wonderful too and the dates and falling in love as they handle a long distance relationship is well done.

Outside the romance, there needs to be better work with the other issues. Mitch's hardworking exhaustion is done well as his Alex's family and they both have good friends. However, Mitch's mom is drawn as a villain too simply and his dad's cluelessness as well as the length of his brother's reaction to something that happen makes little sense. 

Good overall! I look forward to Cody or Yeager's story

4 solid stars
Home Skillet (Culinary Kings #1) - Cate Ashwood,Sandra Damien
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. James finds himself with a divorce, and the loss of his precious restaurant so he runs to the only place, the only person, he ever really called home. Ben has loved James forever, but having him crashing on his couch is playing havoc with his well built walls. But is what Ben feels as one sided as he thinks?? For the most part, I enjoyed this. I just found James a little much to deal with at times! And I am left with questions that didn't get answered. I'm NOT going to voice them here, because if you read reviews before buying you might be left with the same questions and it might spoil it for you. It did NOT spoil my reading experience, not at all, I'm just left wondering about a few things. I did like that James came to the realization of his feelings for Ben before Ben made a move. I did like that, once they decided to do this, James and Ben go ALL in, especially on James' part, since he's been in the closet all this time. It was a lovely read, a perfect way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon. A little longer than the usual hang over cure, but I used it as such. A not overly complicated, well written tale, with just a few things missing. 4 solid stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

Vertigrow XL - Very Easy Purchase Process

Penis pumps have found Vertigrow XL success was summoned, but the problem with them is that the results are not permanent. You can pull more blood into the area, but that only lasts as long as you have the erection. If you want results that last, a combination of natural herb extracts like you'll find in Male Enhancement Pills will be the most effective solution you can find.Despite these Vertigrow XL horrific statistics the fact remains that parents are the single most important influence on children's decision to drink, smoke or use drugs. The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University states that, "Many Parents do not fully understand nor grasp the extent of their influence." Most children who smoke come from a background of one or more smokers. Will your addictions cause your child/teen to be the next statistic?


The store also carries an assortment of herbal Vertigrow XL tea. Some very hard to find choices might I add. One recommended brand she has is Tulsi Tea, which is a tea imported from India. If you have never tried Tulsi tea and are in the Licking or surrounding area you cannot find Tulsi tea anywhere but at the Natural Men Health. Another product worth mentioning is the Vertigrow XL highly debated and for many years guarded Essiac Tea. Diane will be quick to tell you about Essiac tea and recommend it as well.Wash cloth wet a warm wash cloth in Men Health warm water and then place it around the penis until it Vertigrow XL naturally cools then warm and reapply. Continue to warm and reapply until the warm wrap session is finished. The cloth should not be too hot that it causes pain.Weight loss and weight gain foods are designed by dieticians. Salads, fruits, sandwiches, protein shakes made of skimmed milk and dry fruit are offered in such gyms. Many gym goers find refreshment centers an ideal place as they offer workout diet food and a platform to relax before a hectic day begins.


The fifth and final method of finding Vertigrow XL an anger management therapist is simply word of mouth. This can be a very good way to find a reliable anger management therapist. Do you know someone, a friend or family member, who knows of a good psychologist, maybe one who has helped them in the past and they trust? The odds are favorable that you will find the therapist helpful also.


One of the most valuable resources a guy has today is Vertigrow XL online Men Health forums. Unlike the days before the internet, now if you have a question about your health you don't need to ask your doctor first. This can be a real ego saver, since a lot of health questions can be embarrassing to Vertigrow XL ask. Nobody likes to talk face to face about their neither regions to a guy who is almost a complete stranger . Now, with the online health forums, you can ask people without them ever knowing who you are. There's no embarrassment, no hassle and people are usually very friendly on the forums. They can be a great way to get more information about a particular topic from people who are familiar with it.
