Taxes and TARDIS by N.R. Walker Review
Taxes and TARDIS - N.R. Walker

Brent is a jock, Logan a geek, these men are a world apart. But if opposites attract, maybe it’s the differences between them that make it worth the fight.

 

Brent Kelly is a laid-back tradesman whose only concerns are drinks with friends and which man to bed next. In need of a new accountant to sort out his nightmarish shoebox of tax receipts, he’s referred to Logan Willis.

 

He doesn’t expect to be intrigued by the science fiction-loving, geeky guy with dark-rimmed glasses and a TARDIS-blue shirt. So his fascination with the soft-spoken Englishman surprises him, and their mutual attraction is completely unexpected. He most certainly never expects to fall in love.

 

One a jock and the other a geek, both men know the differences between them are vast and could cause problems. But in this opposites-attract erotic drama, maybe it’s the differences between them that make staying together worth the fight.

 

Review

 

Taxes and Tardis is such a lovely sigh of a sexy romance.

 

It could have been more complex with some of the character work but what is here is so good. It would have been a 5 star read if we had both points of view.

 

I love a geek hero and I love it when someone gets gobsmacked.

 

Both heroes are kind and so into each other.

 

This is a delight.

Release Boost - Risk Me

good looking man wearing a black hat in a smoky textured background

 

Can you risk it? RISK ME by Bella Love-Wins & Shiloh Walker IS NOW LIVE!

 

 

risk me - FINAL

 

 

 
 
LeVan
 
She was mine before I ever laid eyes on her.
 
It took an instant to know we were meant to be. She wanted an escape and my arms were wide open. She endured a life of pain. I could give her solace. She saw baggage. I saw hope and connection. But most of all, to her, I was forbidden. I wanted her more because of it.
 
And just when I thought I had her, we were ripped apart.
 
One innocent act to escape forced our families onto a collision course. I was fooled into believing she could risk everything for me. Her hands were tied. She was more of a prisoner than I'd even thought possible. She was just out of reach. And watching, waiting and wishing wouldn’t bring her back to me. But people like us never got lifetimes of happiness. Moments, maybe.
 
We didn’t get fairy tale endings.
Our love story was destined to end in tragedy.

EXCERPT:

 

Everything happened in the blink of an eye.

 

Less than a week after LeVan and his mother walked into the boutique where I worked, he and I were together.

 

A couple.

 

In secret.

 

Although there were few secrets in this small town, we tried. And probably failed. It could’ve been that the rumor started right there in the boutique when I took his hand and held on for too long. It didn’t matter. For one week, I spent every spare moment with LeVan. I’d sneak out of the house every night Mother was on one of her continual drunken benders.

 

The cat was away, so this mouse got out, and boy did I ever play.

 

But it was more than that.

 

What LeVan and I discovered was that we weren’t just playthings to each other.

 

We were in love.

 

Love at first sight.

 

Love at first touch.

 

And our first kiss was nothing but magic.

 

Then I gave myself to him completely.

 

And he did not take the gift for granted.

 

LeVan treated me like a princess.

 

Tonight, it was our one-week anniversary since the day in the boutique.

 

“Pretty lady.”

 

I loved it when his voice got all rough like that.

 

LeVan Vanderbilt had a voice like sweet cocoa, thick and rich, almost excessively so. It only got rough like this because of one thing…me.

 

I absolutely loved what I did to him—and what he did to me.

 

I loved him, period.

 

The weight of his dreads fell toward me, rubbing against my bare chest as he kissed a path lower, lower, lower…

 

When he pressed a kiss to the short, neatly-trimmed hair at my mound, I closed my eyes with a moan and reached for him.

 

“Not yet, pretty lady,” he said, nuzzling me.

 

“You’re a tease.”

 

“And you love it.” He bit my clit. I shivered at the sensations, hot and cold chills licking their way up my spine as he licked his tongue straight into my core.

 

He growled against me and I knew—I knew—that if I could just touch him, he’d stop this and put his hands, his weight on me, thrust inside me and put an end to this never-ending ache.

 

But he’d pinned my wrists to the bed and now, as I arched my hips up to meet his mouth, I moaned again, need driving me to the edge.

 

“Come for me, baby doll. Come on, Thea…let me feel it.” I came.

 

It wasn’t like he gave me a lot of choices.

 

When it came to my body, he owned me completely and there wasn’t anything he couldn’t coax out of me.

 

And just when I thought I had everything I could ever need, we were ripped apart.

The End of the World Running Club - Adrian J. Walker

Another dystopian book this week for me!! Yay!!

This one takes place in England which was very different in that most that I've read were set in the United States. This end of the world scenario involves an asteroid strike that severely debilitates a lot of the planet with hundreds of them striking England.

Edgar Hill, hungover from the night before wakes up one morning to find that the Earth was informed that asteroids are hurling to the planet and there will be devastation of the extreme kind four hours before. He starts out behind the eight ball and basically strikes out, a lot!

At first I thought Edgar Hill a total loser, by the end of the book, I was cheering him on ecstatically. 

I sped through this enjoyable read cheering Edgar on to the finish line.

Thanks to Sourcebooks Landmark and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

Spoiled Rotten
Spoiled Rotten: A Liz Walker Mystery - Mary Jackman
Lizzie just wants to keep her restaurant doors open and right now, that’s impossible. The owner of the butcher shop where she gets her meat has been found butchered and packaged and W.W. printed on the outside. Was Lizzie’s restaurant the intended recipient of Anthony? Daniel, her best chef, has yet to show up for his intended shift at Walker’s Way and he had just started on their payroll. Arriving at Daniel’s home to learn his whereabouts, Lizzie stops as she spies the same detective she saw at the butcher shop. Is Daniel’s disappearance linked to Anthony’s murder? It couldn’t be that easy.
 
Lizzie gets word that Daniel was last seen at a conference where a few people had been poisoned and one of them is deathly ill. Lizzie needs to get to the bottom of this as her business is suffering with her best chef on the run. There is a detective working the case and he seems to run into Lizzie continuously. There’s a few stories that I needed to pull together to get everything straight in the end. This is considered a romance mystery novel but I can’t reveal the romance without giving away a spoiler for the novel. I will say that there is more than one romance in the novel. This is not a novel that I would typically read and I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it.

 

Using this novel for Halloween Bingo, my Romantic Suspense square.

Review: The Delphi Resistance
The Delphi Resistance (The Delphi Trilogy) - Rysa Walker

This is the hardest type of review for me to write, one for a subsequent book in a series and one that I did enjoy but have a few issues with.  Fair warning - this review may contain spoilers for "The Delphi Effect". 

 

Overall I enjoyed this book, it kept my interest and I never found the pacing to lag.  I really like the main character - Anna, and her group of friends, as well as her other allies.  In general they are believable characters.

 

In this story we learn more about the Delphi project and those behind it.  The major plot has Anna and her friends on the run and in hiding, while at the same time working toward rescuing other children and young people who have been kidnapped and are being held by this nefarious group.  As a middle book of a trilogy it's a solid read, advancing the plot, ending with a resolution of the immediate, but not yet wrapping up the larger issue.  Obviously there's more to come.  It also ends with an enigmatic bit of information that leaves the reader wondering and intrigued, but not to the point of being a cliff hanger.

 

There were a couple things though that had me rolling my eyes.  One of those things has to do with the head of security, Miller, hired by the woman bank-rolling Anna and her friends, Magda.

 

Magda has been presented as someone with apparently inexhaustible funds, but also someone who micromanages and does background checks so detailed it's nearly laughable.  However the man in charge of security she hired treats those he's hired to protect as if they are enemy combatants, and the ones he needs to guard as such, not as those he's been hired to protect from outside threat.

 

Granted, these people do have abilities that are potentially dangerous, however they are also children, children who are there to be protected from others who mean them harm.  While it's believable that there are those who would feel animosity simply because these children have abilities than can be dangerous, it's not believable to me that Magda would hire someone who was this incompetent as their security. This guy is ex-military.  Seems to me Magda would have hired someone who could be aware of the children's potential as dangerous while at the same time being calm and professional in handling his actual job of protecting them.  It just didn't seem believable to me that Madga would not have vetted him better.

 

As an example, one child sleepwalks and is in imminent danger of falling down a flight of stairs.  What does Miller do? The ex-military guy hired to keep these kids safe? He freaks out because the kid is up, and nearly causes the kid to fall down the stairs after being startled.

 

'"Hey, it's all right,' Aaron says, taking a few cautious steps toward the boy. 'Your dad is downstairs. I think you were sleepwalking. Why don't we move away from the stairs and--'
'What the hell is he doing out here?' Miller roars from the doorway. His body is a dark outline against the light from inside the house, his face illuminated only by the red dot of light at the base of his taser.
The boy flinches and screams as he loses his balance. His arms pinwheel in a futile attempt to stay upright. Aaron reaches out just in time and snags the collar of his T-shirt, yanking him back to safety. Had Aaron been a split second slower or a few inches farther away, the poor kid would have hurtled head over heels down the stairs to the lower deck."

 

It's not that I can't believe there'd be people who act like this, but the way Madga has been presented I find it hard to believe she'd hire one.

 

Another minor quibble - Anna and her friends have a puppy. 

 

"We're judging these kids in the same way that Pruitt and Miller judge all adepts, and I really don't think any of them would hurt the puppy on purpose. But he's still relatively helpless, so the rule stands: they can't play with him unless one of us is nearby. Just in case."

 

That's just being a responsible pet owner. Kids and dogs playing together *should* always be supervised, especially if either is very young.

 

They wisely decide to leave this puppy behind when they go off...somewhere (avoiding spoilers).  So far so good.  However while there are others where the puppy is being left, including a couple responsible adults, everyone who's previously been mentioned as helping to care for the puppy is leaving.  There's no mention of ensuring someone is going to be looking after the dog while they're gone.  Sure, it can be assumed someone will, but it's a missed detail, and Ms. Walker usually doesn't miss details.  And yes, I'll admit when it comes to pets in stories I am hyper-aware of their well-being.  So, a minor quibble.

 

This book also makes use of the tired trope of throwing in someone who believes in God only when a convenient bigoted character is needed, as a lazy way to explain their bigotry.  And it does so not just once, but several times.  I'm weary of such tactics.  We all know there are people like this, but there are also many people who believe in God who are not bigots, even to the point of finding reasons and justifications to not be bigots within that belief.  But here we are yet again only throwing in a character who believes in God when we need a bigot.  It's beyond tiresome at this point.

 

So, overall, a good and enjoyable story, with a few things I think could have been better but are relatively minor. I look forward to the final installment, and do plan to read it.

 

For those of you who'll want to know - the puppy is never in any danger and makes it to the end completely safe and unharmed.

 

*I received a free copy of this book from Netgalley.  I purchased the Audible version with my own money.*
