Review: "Shades" by Jaime Reese
Shades - Jaime Reese

It took me FOREVER to finish this book. With 344 pages, it was at least 150 pages too long. It was a struggle to finish.

 

The story was 30% plot and 70% internal monologues (pining ones in the first, schmaltzy love declarations ones in the second half).

 

 

This book also had some of the most far-fetched and ridiculous plot twists that I’ve read in a long time.

 

For example, that island? The hell? Am I supposed to take this seriously?

 

 

This was my first book by this author and even though I’m not totally put off by her storytelling, I probably won’t read another book from her in the foreseeable future.

 

I’m giving this book a really weak 3 stars-rating, because even though I wasn’t really enjoying it, the writing wasn’t that awful or offensive to justify a lower rating. But this author is in serious need to improve her storytelling.

Review: "Unbreakable Stories: Snow" (Unbreakable Bonds, #2.5) by Jocelynn Drake & Rinda Elliott
Unbreakable Stories: Snow - Rinda Elliott,Jocelynn Drake

I love all these follow-up collections of short stories for each couple. This one is about Snow and Jude from "Shatter".

 

I'm usually not a big fan of stories about a couple's everyday life after they got their HEA, but it is really lovely to see how smitten these alpha men are for each other and how they are continually working on their relationship.

 

But the highlight of each #1.5, #2.5, etc. collection in this series are those stories that involve all the four friends together, which was the "Camping" story in this one, and which alone deserves all the 5 stars.

Review: "Shatter" (Unbreakable Bonds, #2) by Jocelynn Drake & Rinda Elliott
Shatter - Rinda Elliott,Jocelynn Drake

Wow. Just wow. My mind is blown.

 

This series just gets better and better.

 

Seriously, everything about these books is so outrageously and unashamedly good, I'm the happiest Mo-Fo right now.

 

I have to admit that I don’t even like book series that are set in an “Everyone and his mother is gay” universe, but these authors succeed to make each and every (side) character so damn likeable and memorable that I couldn’t pick a favourite at this point, even if my life depended on it.

 

No really, I love them all: every single hot alpha, the sweet and tender twenty-something, the ragged-edged detective, the feisty Greek mother etc.

 

But what I’m really looking forward to right now is Geoffrey and Sven’s story AKA the pretty elfin twink and the big bulky Viking.

 

Seriously, how these authors manage to believably (!) pull of this diverse cast of characters is truly remarkable.

 

So excuse me while I'm being here, fanboying all over these books and diving right into the next one.

Pestilence (The Four Horsemen #1) by T.A. Chase
Pestilence - T.A. Chase

There is "not enough" trend in this book, IMHO.

 

Human Bart's not sick enough the way his illness is described.

Pest does not care enough & not emotional enough. He is detached and doesn't spend enough time with Bart.

Pest and Death talk about secrecy but they are not secretive enough. In fact they can't seem to keep their mouths shut.

The whole falling in love process is not convincing enough.

The whole case of pandemic about to explode is not believable either.
