not quite as good as book two
Urgent Care (Hearts and Health Book 3) -... Urgent Care (Hearts and Health Book 3) - DJ Jamison
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. This is book three in the series, Hearts and Health, but you don't need to have read the other two. I've only read one. While previous characters pop up (major brownie points from me on that one!) you don't need to have read their stories for this one to make sense. I LOVED book two, Bedside Manner, like warm and fuzzies for days. This one, not so much and I can't for the life of me figure out why! Its well written, from both men's point of view, and I did enjoy the story, how it all unfolded, and Trent and Xav deal with their history. I liked the epiphany that Trent had, after his friend died, why he came back to town, and why he wanted so badly to reconcile with the only man he ever loved. I liked that Xav (which only Trent shortened as such but I'm stealing it!) was reluctant and rightly so. I liked the way they took their time to finally consummate their new relationship. I LIKED the book, Trent and Xav and their story. I just didn't LOVE it. And it pains me, deeply, to say that because it really is a good book! so, 4 stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

short and so deliciously sweet!
Mr. Plum - Sue Brown
I won my copy of this book and no review was required, but I gotta tell you about this book! Another addition to the Too Stinking Cute shelf, and I really rather loved it. Its only short, some 30 odd pages, but its so deliciously sweet! Tom will tell the story of his and Dave's relationship with the beginning in the launderette. But Dave will tell you, it goes back far before then, to a cup of coffee in a paper sleeve that matched Tom's tie. Even though only Dave has a say, and Tom doesn't get a word in, at all, I still enjoyed it. Its very written, and you connect to both Dave AND Tom really well, for such a short book. I didn't spot a single spelling mistake or editing errors. Sue Brown in a new to me author, and this was a perfect introduction to her work. Fabulous little hangover cure, if ever there was one. 4 solid stars **Same worded review will appear elsewhere**

something didn't quite work for me
Play Chopin for Me - Max Vos,A. J. Corza Play Chopin for Me - Max Vos,A. J. Corza
Independent reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted my copy of this book. Dale's home and restaurant are destroyed by fire. Turning up at his sister's house in his boxers and a raincoat give Chrissie the opportunity to finally give Dale the make over she has longed to give him. Al's roommate leave, and he needs a new one to meet rent. Dale and Al come together, and neither expected what it would lead to. *insert sigh* *insert another, deeper sigh* I wanted to love this, I really did. But for a couple of reasons, I didn't. I did not connect, at any level, with either Dale or Al. I don't know why, and it always pains me when I am unable to voice what I need to say. Pains me deeply. Especially when this is a new to me author and I get to meet him later this year! I found there was a great deal of dialogue, and the gaps between were few. What there was in the gaps, though, was good! I liked the connection between Al's father and Dale's solicitors father. I did not like what Al's grandmother did!! I did like the way it came out though, just not the depths she went to to get what she wanted. Oh, wait. I take my non-connection back. I DID feel for Al, when all was revealed. I even shed a tear for him. I loved how, one way or another, Dale, Al and Chrissie all ended up in Paris, at the same time! Cute, that. Really cute. So all in all, a good book, but for ME, not a great one. 3 stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

Awesome addition to this series!
Lochlann (Order of the Black Knights) - ... Lochlann (Order of the Black Knights) - Andrea Speed
Independent reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted my copy of this book. This book?? This book here is a prime example of why I LOVE this series. TOTALLY. FREAKING. AWESOME. Lochlann was recruited to Alpha after the death of his brother and father. Cas infiltrated Alpha to try to get information to bring it down. This is book 6 in The Order of The Black Knights, but you don't NEED to have read the other five. But hear when I say you SHOULD read them. All written by different authors, in their own style and manner, but they all follow a theme, that of a meet, love, kill, rinse and repeat until they meet the one enemy that will be spared. And they are all 4 and 5 star reads. SO, read the damn books already. This is, for me, a far far bloodier read. Quite literally. Being members of Alpha is like a Black Ops team, on steriods. In, kill, and out. And there is a lot of killing here. And it is gloriously written! I loved Inga. SO she was deadly, but totally scary and messed up. She left me with lots of questions about her. Loved the reasons all the other team members were with Alpha too. You don't get much, just enough to be able to connect, but then again, you don't need them all to have a say, because Lochlann and Cas have a lot to say on their own. It takes time for things at Alpha to come to a head, and I wasn't sure which way things were going to go, til right til the very end, and I do so LOVE being kept on my toes. BUT!! What made this for me, what made it stand out from the other five books, is that it is almost CLEAN. Like NO sex at all. Sorry, there is sex, its just not described in any way. Its all left to the reader to fill in the blanks. And I absolutely LOVED it. Go figure! Me, who will say she much prefers her books on the sexier side, hell I'll even read porn, I don't care. BUT know this. For Lochlann and Cas, it's freaking perfect. I think that is Andrea Speed and her way of writing. But brilliant here. OH! And this cover. I don't usually take much notice of a books cover, but this one?? It fits Lochlann, perfectly. Stunning side view. Love it! There is a book 7 listed on Goodreads, but I have insider information that there will be more. I am so loving the way each author presents these books. Its giving me a whole host of new reading matter too! I didn't quite manage to read it in one sitting, but I tried so bloody hard to. Work got in the way! Still, a stunning... 5 stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

Never Eighteen - Megan Bostic

Hey, there's the classic haunted-house-cart-thing-we're-totally-gonna-kiss-but-wait-there's-the-end-of-the-ride moment. 

 

Austin's obsession with Kaylee is starting to outweigh everything else this story is supposed to be about. Also, he went to visit his friend Allie, who was raped. How do I know she was raped? Because as soon as Austin came over, she gave us a play-by-play of exact how it happened, where it happened, etc... For a girl who has supposedly closed herself off from the world, she opened up pretty fast to a guy she hasn't talked to in a long time.

 

Just... bleh. Everything about this is too convenient, too packaged, too Austin-saves-the-day. I don't like it. 

 

Also, is this day like, 100 hours long?? How did they have time to visit like, four or five different people, go to the county fair (complete with roller coasters, other rides, and food--that kind of expedition takes me about a whole day), AND drive to Seattle, eat dinner at the Sky Deck place at the Space Needle, etc... And then drive home... And now he's trying to convince Kaylee to take him somewhere else. Kaylee claims it's nine o'clock, but I don't see how that's physically possible.
