Audible Review: Bad Boys for Hire: Nick Written by Rachelle Ayala and Narrated by: Chris Abell
Bad Boys for Hire: Nick: Bad Boys for Hire, Book 3 - Rachelle Ayala,Chris Abell,LLC Rachelle Ayala Publishing

 

 

Rachelle Ayala is one addiction I'll gladly own. 

 

What began as a sexy read emerged as an expedition of hope. Mr. Abell gave Nick's bad boy charm a voice. Nick gave a wounded heart a reason to soar. Carol was his motivation to become a better man. Nick was Carol's bright light at the end of a dark road. Ayala wrote the words that stole my heart and Abell supplied the voice that had me catching my breath.

The Golden Mean and Alexandria: Griffin and Sabine
Alexandria: In Which the Extraordinary Correspondence of Griffin & Sabine Unfolds - Nick Bantock
The Golden Mean - Nick Bantock

I'm reviewing these two together because I read them totally out of order. leaving me with little idea of story quality.  I'd read Griffin and Sabine years ago and loved it - the artwork, the interactivity of it, and the way it ended mysteriously.  A couple of years ago I acquired these two books at a sale and put them away until I could get the missing three, and read them in order.

 

Except last night I was in the mood for books with pieces, so I grabbed them to read anyway.

 

Definitely not a series to read out of order.  The Golden Mean was ok - I figured out enough from having read the first book to follow along fine, but Alexandria has new characters that were somehow involved in everything and I was more than a little clueless, although I was left with the feeling that Bantock was reaching for plot by the end.

 

Regardless, the art is still stunning.  I love the postcards and whenever a 'real' letter appeared on the page, the thrill of opening it, extracting the letter and reading it, never got old.

 

I'm still going to search out the rest of the books; if I ever find them, I'll read the whole series again - in order - and see if the plot goes as off the rails as it looks to me now.

Reading progress update: I've read 10%.
Bonfires - Amy Lane,Nick J. Russo

“Teenagers,” Anthony confirmed. “It’s terrible. I can’t even.”
Larx looked at him in the frosty night air of fall in the mountains, lips twitching. “Can’t even what?”
“That’s a complete sentence nowadays. It drives me fucking insane. I can’t even.” Anthony rolled his eyes and Larx doubled over laughing.

"Yosh, what do you know about Julia Olson?"
Yoshi sucked wind in through his teeth. "I can't think of a name bad enough. And I speak three languages."
 
Sounds like a nice girl...
