Death by Silver (Julian Lynes and Ned Mathey #1) by Melissa Scott
Death by Silver - Amy Griswold,Melissa Scott

Solid writing; a few typos don't count. An excellent historical with a dash of magic. Non-romantic relationship (not for the lack of interest on both MCs part), mystery suspense and scenes of past abuse dominate this story. The two MCs-wizard-detectives do get together closer to the end, but as far as I recall all sex scenes fade into black. 5 stars for a great historical fantasy mystery-suspense :D

Omega Academy (Project Alpha/Omega #1) by Jules Finley
Omega Academy (Project Alpha/Omega Book 1) - Jules Finley

TAGS: GFY, mpreg last 5%.

 

I really enjoyed first 50% of the book, thinking giving it at least 4 stars.

 

However, after Bryce's bathroom window incident it started going downhill. Too much info dumping (pre-war, pre-academy life, constantly whining about wanting to die, then changing mind...) and too lovey-dovey bordering saccharine in the very end.

 

Jackson never made an impression on me as a big bad alpha. Omega Oliver had more guts, will and drive than him.

 

A few nice surprises in the second part of the book and one more closer to the end. 3.25 stars. Rounding down to 3 on GR and up to 3.5 on Booklikes.

Dr. Reed -ha-ha, that name, different spelling but still, I could not help it! =)

Monica, thank you for the rec. All in all, it was a very fun read :)

The Telling (The Telling #1) by Eden Winters
The Telling - Eden Winters

I really feel bad giving it 2 stars. BUT:

- I could not connect with the MCs. The narration was dry, the interaction between the MCs was too easy: A student with a hero worship + a soldier with a PTSD in need of love and care = Uber Quick Instalove
I am not usually the one to condemn love at first sight, but this one wasn't convincing even to me.
- Angie was annoying as hell; she set my teeth on edge every. single. time.
- The evil stepfather was extremely sketchy (literally)
- ...And so was the local playboy - Trevor? Terry?
- Ryan... plenty of him in the past, but he was brushed off many a time at the time of the narrative. Why was he even there? Nothing but a prop, like most (all) of the secondary characters here. I hoped and waited for him to show up in book two, but - nothing.
- Rainbow flags were everywhere (in 'spirit' at least). Everyone was sooooo tolerant and accepting and not in the least surprised about everybody else being gay. Except for the evil stepfather, of course, he was one ugly bastard with a foul mouth.

So, a number of things didn't work for me here. Once again - book's too short? I don't know :( I suspect it might be me, since everybody else loves it.

Apple Polisher by Heidi Belleau - 55% Done
Apple Polisher - Heidi Belleau

Ha-ha! I now know I read wa-a-ay too much m/m :D

Boys are getting ready to go watch Rocky Horror Picture show.

Rob says: "Wait, Max still isn't downstairs? It's almost quarter past eleven..."

And what do you think I saw when I read this sentence? "It's almost queer past eleven."

I almost died laughing at myself :D
