REVIEW BY MERISSA - Owned by the Alpha: Manlove Edition
Owned by the Alpha: Manlove Edition - L.J. Longo,James D. Cox,Pelaam,Elena Kincaid,Jules Dixon,Maia Dylan,L.D. Blakely
Owned by the Alpha: Manlove Edition is a brilliant group of short, steamy, shifter stories that are guaranteed to delight. There is one theme that runs through them, and that is finding your fated mate. Some are already shifters so they know the score. Others are human and didn't have a clue. Regardless of which way the story goes, all of these stories are individual enough to 'stand out from the pack', whilst keeping the flow from one story to the next.
All of the stories in this collection are very well written, with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt my reading flow. Some of the authors were already known to me, but I know have others to watch out for. For a quick steamy coffee break book with one story at a time, or for a long session involving all of them, this is a wonderful collection that is definitely recommended by me.
* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and my comments here are my honest opinion. *

*shrugs* A futuristic MMA MM Romance that reads Contemporary
Blow by Blow (Siren Publishing Classic ManLove) - Kate Hill

A Hearts On Fire Review

2.75 Hearts--"Blow by Blow" is a story set in the future, where America went into another civil war. What was the cause of the fight? LGBT rights. In this America, it's been 15 years since the war ended. It was okay to be openly gay but only to a certain extent. The homophobes are still abundant and gay attacks are still happening.

What drew me to this story was reading about an effeminate MMA fighter who rules the world of cage fighting. And in that aspect, the story did deliver.

Theo aka Little Raven, is 27 and flamboyant. He needs to join a MMA team, so he can compete in tournaments to make money. Fighting is what he's done his entire life and what he excels at. Getting turned down by just about every gym, he ends up at the last one, run by the renowned Master Jesse. The gym is set in a more tolerant side of town. First day, he falls for heavyweight champion, Valentin (33). Theo has been following Valentin's career and was a big fan of the dreadlocked fighter.

The story is billed as erotic alternative romantic suspense, and while the story tried, the execution, pace and all over plotting fell short. The ingredients could've made a stellar read but it was sloppily handled to me. Trigger warning: gay bashing, attempted rape. Blow By Blow might be billed as set in the future, it read like a contemporary.

While the story tried to paint Valentin as a progressive MMA fighter, openly gay and macho, there were a few missteps. Like when trying to start a relationship with Theo, he thought:
"Theo wanted a date. Shit. He was worse than a woman yet part of what turned Valentin on."

Worse than a woman? *side eyes* It didn't endear me to him. In fact, Valentin said some jerky things that made me not like him. He's told to the reader that he can't communicate well due to a crap childhood. But not enough personal growth was shown. Valentin was one degree above flat. The story was told from alternate POV, but Theo seemed more developed as a character.

The sex is super safe, wearing condoms for a handjob safe. Though I kinda paused the two times one guy licked the other's dick before putting on a condom and then finishing a blowjob. Kinda defeated the purpose. Whatevs. There were so many condoms I felt like I needed to wear one just for the sex scenes.

And the speaking of the sex scenes, there were repetitive. It was like reading the same boring script - only one guy tops, the other has to bottom, add a condom and lube, once penetration happens, 2-3 sentences, they're coming. They come so quickly, the sex scene is over in under a minute. And there was a lot of sex scenes - here is an example where less would have been more, because it was too much. (I can't believe I wrote this) But it was yawn inducing, 1 out of 5, plain yogurt sex.

The second half was stronger...but that's not saying much. Once I got to the end, I was disappointed. The story ignores the suspense plot many times throughout, but the culmination of the "suspense" is not satisfying nor worth reading after all of the words. The suspense is supposed to be one threatening letter that happens in the second half? Really? And whoever was behind the letter was never solved. The epilogue was the start of what I'm guessing is a continuation for different characters. Big time loose ends were left flying in the wind to pick up an idea first introduced in the beginning. :/

The "romance" ends with a HEA but it was really lackluster since that relationship already peaked in the first half despite the silly couple squabbles and miscommunication issues. Valentin, overall, was a jerk. Did he redeem himself? *sigh* I just see him reacting the way he always did when he was dealing with a difficult situation - verbally cutting Theo down. He's not what I call a viable candidate. But Theo liked him. And there couple of seconds sex seems to be compatible.

Some parts were interesting like the MMA fighting in the second half. Most was meh and drawn out. The ending to Theo's and Valentin's love story was too fast IMO. Valentin should have groveled more. Overall, it's within the 2.5 -2.75 Hearts range.

Decent enough ideas, shoddy execution.

I'm not interested in reading any more from this world.

999 Problems: A Manlove & Kickerdick Trick
999 Problems: A Manlove & Kickerdick Tri... 999 Problems: A Manlove & Kickerdick Trick - Axel Howerton I purchased this book today, though I use that term loosely as it was free on Amazon.com.au. A few months back, I signed up to the email newsletter of Coffinhop (http://coffinhop.com/) press. I received an ecopy of another book, A Very Merry Manlove & Kickerdick Xmess, for free in return for a review. It's by the same author and features the same characters. Tonight, I read both and, am happy to say that I really liked both books.

999 Problems: A Manlove & Kickerdick Trick by Axel Howerton is about Artie Menlowe and Jurgen Kierkedoek. In his early days, Jurgen used to do dirty deeds. When he and Artie go into a music shop, they get into a bit of trouble. Soon enough, they're in the back with Morris who offers them a job to earn a little bit of money. At first, it seems to go easier than either of them expected, but things go wrong.

Just like the other book, I absolutely loved this. I don't know what it is. It might be the way the author writes, but Artie and Jurgen just seem like such a magical couple. It just seems like they're truly perfect for each other. Their conversations and the way they interact seem very natural. Even the background characters seem very fitting for the book. There isn't anything (that I can think of) that was out of place in the book. The thing I like most is that it's very upbeat. Even when things go wrong, there's a good attitude in the writing and the characters turn the negative portions into an advantage for themselves.

I'm very happy with this book and really would like to read more by Axel Howerton in future, whether it be another Manlove & Kickerdick story or something else. 5 stars from me!
