One More Soldier by Marie Sexton Review!
One More Soldier - Marie Sexton

1970

Will has known Bran since he first taught him to swim, when Bran was eleven years old. But now, seven years later, Bran has returned from a year of hard work on a ranch outside of Houston and he is no longer the boy Will remembers. He is now eighteen, quite grown up, and making no secret of the fact that he’s interested in a sexual relationship with Will. At first, Will is horrified. He has a hard time forgetting the Bran he knew as a child, and given their seventeen-year age difference, he can’t understand why Bran is interested in him. But everything changes when he finds out that Bran has been drafted.

Will and Bran will have only two weeks together. But two weeks may be enough to change Will’s life.

 

Review

 

For me this is an excellent short story but as I was expecting a romance... well while it ends hopefully, it isn't a romance. I wish that the story had rolled forward after where it rested and we got to see the new life and new love. 

However, Marie Sexton is such a talented writer and this is much a lovely character driven love story set in a moment in time perfectly with age difference during the Vietnam War and right after Stonewall.

Reading progress update: I've read 114 out of 304 pages.
Furry Logic: The Physics of Animal Life - Liz Kalaugher,Matin Durrani

This has been a slow read for me, through no fault of the book's, and in spite of my tortoise speed, I'm enjoying it.  It's not edge-of-your-seat stuff, exactly, and the humor... well, I've liked some of the jokes, but I couldn't help thinking at the beginning, 'the jokes feel like a British person trying to make American jokes'.  After a few more jokes falling flat, and the section that contained the dead giveaway reference to a cat as a "moggy", I flipped to the back flap for the author bios, and both are citizens of the realm.  Doesn't mean I'm right about the humor, but it does illustrate the disconnect I felt; few Americans can pull off the brilliant dryness of British humor, and at least in this case, for me, the authors struggle with pulling off the sassier style of humor we Yanks are known for.

 

I've just finished up reading about the Pond Skaters, and I am forever going to hear Pull! in my head now every time I see one whizzing across the surface of the water, with their tiny middle legs acting like oars.

 

I loved the section on the geckos.  While I understood on a basic level how they walked on ceilings before, the authors did a thoroughly complete job of explaining the phenomenon to me on the molecular scale.  All those tee tiny hairs...  And I love the irony of their inability to walk on dry teflon, but wet teflon is fine.  I also now desperately need to hear a tokay gecko bark.  None of this YouTube stuff; I want to hear a gecko bark in the wild.  

 

The Harlequin Shrimp is a badass.  If you haven't seen the YouTube video called True Facts, and you like your science irreverent (and often not suitable for children or work environments), I highly, highly recommend looking it up.  It's not only hilarious, but offers a great slow motion / freeze frame shot of the cavitation bubble that Harlequin shrimp produce when they punch things.

 

Totally irrelevant aside:  if I ever had a 'pet' Harlequin shrimp, I would name it Spot.  Because I can only imagine that the percentage of "Rocky", "Ali", "George Foreman", etc. shrimp would be in the 90th percentile.  Why zig when you can zag?

Former military specialist and recluse Reece Hunt takes his job of protecting the Savage Kings MC very seriously. When one of their regular girls go missing, he won't rest until he tracks her down and makes sure she's safe.
 


While Cynthia Collins has loved every second she has spent with the Savage Kings, the problem is that none of the men have ever really cared for her. The guys are all starting to settle down and she's not getting any younger. Whatever hope Cynthia had of becoming one of the Kings' old ladies is quickly dwindling as she gets ready to turn thirty; that's why she decides that it's time to give up the club life in search of more.

 


After Reece shows up on Cynthia's doorstep, her plan of leaving the MC may unknowingly become more difficult than she expected.

 


For reasons Reece can't even understand, he begins sabotaging Cynthia's plan of dating men who don't ride Harleys or wear leather to try and lure her back to the club.

 


When Cynthia finds out what Reece has been up to, he'll have to either put up or shut up. It's been more than a decade since he let himself fall for a woman, and he's not sure if he's ready to go down that bumpy road again. Besides, he doesn't have time for any distractions from monitoring the club's security.

 


Reece has apparently forgotten that sometimes love has a way of knocking even the most stubborn men off their feet, whether they're ready for it or not.

 


This is the seventh book in the Savage Kings MC series but it can be read as a standalone. The preferred reading order is:


King's Road
Chase


Abe

Torin

War

Maddox
Dalton

Reece
Miles (Coming Soon)
 
 
Let's start off by saying that this was our third read by these authors and we really enjoyed it.I am a big MC gene reader junkie so whenever I get a chance to snag a new MC author to feed my addition I do and I am so glad I came across this series as it is so much fun.
 
I loved the main character's from the onset of the story. Omg ! I fell head over heels myself for Reece with all that cockiness and those sexy good looks.I have to say I have read a lot of MC romances but, this was one of those romance reads that was super sweet because we loved that whole 10 date rule before I will sleep with you deal.I have to say that I loved  the courtship that went on between Cynthia and Reece as he really did go all out to make them special and whether they were in person or on video chat let's just say those ones were a little more interesting lol.
 
 
We loved getting to know Reece a lot better as we already loved him from the previous books so we were glad to get to know his story.Reece's story explains a lot about him and why he chooses to be alone so much.Although Reece's didn't have the ideal home life he made some major life changes to see to the happiness of himself and his women and future family. Lost and betrayed and broken is how he  came to the Savage Kings.
 
We loved Reece with his sense of humor( who need he had one to begin with lol) his sexy good looks, loved his possessiveness and protectiveness for those he cared for and loved but, most of all we loved the lengths and the sneakiness he went to in order to win the girl who from the moment he met her wanted her.We loved the smart hot sexy computer nerd that made us laugh out loud time and time again throughout this engaging tale.
 
Cynthia we found to be feisty,sexy, full of fire had a sense of humor and was comfortable with owning up to her own sexual needs and wants and the choices she's made past and present and has no trouble at all speaking her mind.Cynthia has been running from her past but, while carving out a new life for herself she been healing and looking to he future in the meantime.
 
The chemistry between Reece and Cynthia was off the charts and we are sorry it took so long for them to find their way to one another because clearly they were meant to be together.There sexual encounters were super hot as well as playful.These two just needed to be in the same room together and we felt the heat and sparks all around them.
 
Overall we loved the story from cover to cover as it was engaging,funny,heart felt,fill with some drama and made us laugh out loud time and time again as well as shedding more than a few tears and had a sweet love story that was really touching and turned out to be one heck of an enjoyable read.
 
Recommended read to all!

not sure I liked Ryker!
Ryker - V.L. Locey,R.J. Scott
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. **This review will be short, I really dislike writing the three star reviews!** Ryker is hockey royalty, coming up as 4th generation championship winning players. Jacob works his family farm with his mum and dad. Both end up at hockey camp for the summer, and are polar opposites in most things. Sharing a room brings them closer, then camp is over and they are on opposite sides of the country. When Ryker switches college to be closer to Jacob, will Jacob let him? I can't put my finger on why this one didn't work for me, and ya'll know how much that does my head in! So, here's what I DID like. Both Jacob and Ryker have their say, so we get both sides of the coin. Both voices are clear and very different, and their voice is in the first person. Each change is clearly headed, and comes as the chapter changes. I saw no spelling or editing errors to spoil my reading. I tagged it as a short read, because it does NOT seem as long as the billed 196 pages! One sitting read, too. There are some characters from the series this one spins off, and that makes me want to go back and read THEIR series, or at least, Jared and Ten (Ryker's dad and step dad) stories. I just . . . .DON'T know what didn't work! Or at least, that was what I thought when writing this review. Now I'm typing it up, I *think* it might be Ryker himself. I dunno, maybe. Possibly. So, gonna leave it at that. 3 good solid but maybe not for me, stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

Dane needed a say!
Snowed In: Dane and Heath - Rafe Jadison
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. Dane is a good boss, until he makes Heath stay late and they get caught in a snow storm of epic proportions. But after a few beers and some secrets, Dane and Heath find they have more in common that they thought, and neither can deny it any longer. CUTE!! My first thoughts on finishing this book was, needs to go on the "too stinking cute" shelf! It's rather sweet, with a little bit of sexy time, some secrets exposed, not overly emotional, but enough emotion comes across in the right places. All the descriptions of the weather, what's happening outside, when the car nearly crashes into the tree, they all came across beautifully, and I reacted verbally to some parts. I don't usually, when reading, but do when listening. But when the car went skidding?? I was like NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Phew, when it stopped! Only Heath has a say, though, and I think that's why I gave it 4 stars and not 5. Even for such a short book, some 48 pages, if Dane had had a say, if we had gotten into his mind, I think this might have been a 5 star read. Dane has a lot to say here, and not all of it is voiced. I have one teeny tiny comment about the editing though. In one particular place, Dane's is transposed for Heath's name. I carried on reading, not really noticing UNTIL something happen that DANE did to HEATH, which had happened where the names got mixed up. Just a comment, is all. Really REALLY cute read, and the first I have read of this author. I'd like to read more, something longer with more bite, a bit more in depth. 4 solid stars (but really only cos Dane doesn't have his say) **same worded review will appear elsewhere**
