really REALLY good!!
Owned by the Sea - L.M. Somerton
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. A year ago, Jonty's world imploded at the loss of his parents and his sister in a storm at sea. In an effort to get out more, and begin to try to get on with his life, Jonty decides a charity auction to raise funds for the lifeboat station that saved him would be a good idea. Jed was on that lifeboat, indeed, was that one to pull Jonty from the stormy sea and he knew, he KNEW that day, that one day, Jonty would be his. The charity auction is a great way to spend time with Jonty, to get Jonty into his life, and into his bed. I liked this one, a lot, a LOT! It focuses on Jonty coming out of himself, pushing his own boundaries. On Jed's 'no rush' approach to getting Jonty into his bed. On the fact that neither of these two men see this...whatever it is...as a quick fling. And on Jonty's art auction, that pulls the whole village together to raise money for the lifeboat station. It's well told, from both men's point of view, so we get Jonty's escape from the sea, and his effort to pull himself out of his painting funk. We get Jed and all the naughty thoughts he has about Jonty, and his infinite patience. There is no break up/make up, no nutty ex to spoil anything between them and their growing love. It's a really great easy read and I mean this in a very VERY good way! Jed in a Dominant that calls to Jonty's submissive side, but it's only in the bedroom and nothing too heavy. I've NOT filed it on the BDSM shelf, because of that fact. I actually found it not overly explicit for a MM book, and I really liked that it wasn't too heavy on the sexy time. It's not needed for THIS book. OH!!! Be warned! There is a third in this relationship, a Newfoundland dog called Marmite. He really steals the show, that is, right up until Jed gives Jonty his gift right near the end. Some proper giggle out loud moments! A great story, well written, that was the perfect way to spend a lazy, wet, holiday afternoon. 4 solid stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

A very VERY fitting end!
Sin and Tonic (Sinners #6) - Rhys Ford
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. And breathe! Deep breath, it's just a review, Debbie, you can do it! So! This is book 6 in the Sinners series and I would recommend that you at least read Sinners Gin (book 1) and Absinthe of Malice (book 5) before you read this one. You need to know about Miki and Kane from the beginning since this is the conclusion to their story. Actually, I take that back. Read them ALL, please! Not least because they are 4 and 5 stars reads from me, but because you need these boys in your life, you really do! Miki is falling apart, and someone is trying to kill him. He finds out his mother's and then his father's name, and all hell breaks loose! It's been a while (Dec 2016) since I read book 5 and I don't reread, but once I got going, it all comes back to you. Ford spins her tales like no other, and I LOVE her work. It just grabs you, and pulls you kicking and screaming, along for the very bumpy ride that Miki and Kane take you on! I loved that Miki was finally able to ask for help, because that was a hard fought battle with himself. I loved that he was calling Donal (Kane's father) Dad. oh! I just LOVED IT!!! Loved that I did not see who might be responsible for everything, until it was revealed in the book. Ford has a way of keeping you on your toes! Very VERY emotional in places, a little bit messy what with dead bodies and things, but so, so bloody awesome! I can't say much, cos of spoilers and things but read it! Read them ALL!! It's always sad, coming to the end of a MUCH loved series, but I *think* this actually might be my favourite of the whole series. And of course I want to LISTEN to this, because I really don't hear the voices right, and I NEEEEEEED Tristan James and the Morgan/Finnegan boys and girls in my ear one more time. So, a very VERY fitting end, and I LOVED the epilogue! And I love love LOVED that Miki was finally able to share Kane a little with the world, more specifically, how much Kane means to him. A Song For Kane So throw back the gates of hell, Pull me down the path I'd walked. Find me in the darkness, No matter if I balk. Sing me a son of redemption, Sing me a ballad of love and bliss. Remind of the Heaven, I found in our first kiss. Bravo, Ms Ford. 5 full and shiny stars but really, it deserves far more! **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

really REALLY good!!
Machine Metal Magic (Mind + Machine #1) - Hanna Dare
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. Jaime runs, after the facility he and his kind were housed in, was attacked and everyone else killed. He can talk to the computers that run everything. He thinks this is not a gift, but a curse. He finds himself taken prisoner by a starship crew, carrying a cargo that needs delivering. Rylan is his jailer. But Rylan is keeping secrets from his crew, just as much as they keep secrets from him. Sci-fi is growing on me, it really is! Sometimes, sci-fi can be a little overwhelming, with all the technology and what-not, but not so here. I loved how it was explained how Jaime talks to the computers, to the ship, and to Rylan's artificial arm. Love how they play with that one

straight back up to 5 stars
Gaining Trust (Kiss of Leather #5) - Morticia Knight
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. And just like that, back up to 5 stars! This is book 5 in the Kiss of Leather series, and you really REALLY should read the previous books first. There is an ongoing story arc and you need to be able to follow what's going on with that. And they are 4 and 5 stars reads

greta collaboration!
Soul of Discretion - Susan Mac Nicol,M. Tasia
I was gifted my copy of this book, direct from the author, that I write a review was not required. You know how you love a particular author, all their books are mostly 5 stars reviews, and then one comes along that throws you for a loop, and you did not love it, but you cannot figure out why?? This one, right here. Simon is in Canada to see just what has happened to his money, and more importantly, his friend. His hook-up provides him with some much needed relief. When said hook-up turns out to be the police officer dealing with his friend, both Simon and Nick realise they have to stay apart. But neither man can do that, because each man feels more for the other than just a hook-up. But how can things work, with them living on opposite sides of the world?? I LIKED this, I really did, I just didn't love, and it pains me deeply to say that, and I really don't know why! I loved Simon, being an Earl, but he doesn't lord it over others. He works hard, makes his millions by working hard and pushing others to work hard for him. Loved Nick, who is, up to now, quite happy in his job as a Mountie. Loved the supporting cast of characters that take part in this story. Loved how they came together, and that they both thought, quite quickly, that there could be more between them. I just didn't love the story! I did love how Jack, Simon's friend, redeemed himself, and the bad guys got their comeuppence, though. This is a collaboration between Susan Mac Nicol, and M.Tasia. I LOVE Ms Mac Nicol, but have only read one short by Ms Tasia. I tried really hard to pick out where each author had their say, as it were, but I couldn't find any seams. The changes between each author are smooth and painless and unless you KNOW where they are, you might never be able to pick those seams apart. So, very well done for that! So, as much as I enjoyed the story, I just didn't love it and for that I'm deeply sorry! 4 stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**
