Review: "Status Update" (#gaymers, #1) by Annabeth Albert
Status Update - Annabeth Albert

"Adrian kissed like he was in charge. Like he expected to be the one in charge. And something inside Noah opened up and said yes. Yes, in a way he'd never been able to before. Yes, with a thousand small exhales. Yes, with his lips parting, welcoming Adrian's tongue, welcoming Adrian taking over his mouth, taking over his person."

 

This book made me so, so happy!

 

 

And not just happy as in "this was such a sweet and well-written story and I had a great time reading it" happy, but as in "this book made me fall so hard for its MCs and their crazy ass chemistry and gave me all the fuzzy feels that I had a constant grin on my face" happy.

 

Noah and Adrian - though being so very different from their upbringing and their own personal dealings with being gay - just felt right together from the start. They both gave each other so much and they were both just so genuinely nice and good-hearted people that I couldn't help but root for them to fall in love and get their HEA.

 

 

This story ticked so many of my boxes:

 

  • ga(y)mers
  • men with dogs
  • a spontaneous RV road trip
  • a hipster
  • a virgin

 

And cuddling. Sweet Baby Jesus, so much cuddling.

 

 

Usually, when I read "35-year-old virgin", this is my initial reaction:

 

 

So kudos to Annabeth Albert's mad writing skills to make this part of Noah's background absolutely believable and comprehensible to me.

 

The building trust between Adrian and Noah was a delight to witness and each step of their relationship was a joy to get lost in. I loved how Noah finally came out of his shell and how Adrian was so sweet and patient with him.

 

 

Oh, and you should totally get the audiobook. Sean Crisden already is a favorite narrator of mine, but once again he brought an already great book to a higher level with his performance.

 

 

I can't wait to reread this again. Perfect romance is perfect.

 

 

Highly, highly recommended!

 

Thanks to Julie & Marte for the BR!

Finished: Desire Untamed — What the hell?
Desire Untamed - Pamela Palmer

There is so much of this book that doesn't work for me. I've never been into shifters so this is my first shifter book. Honestly, I don't know how I ended up picking it up at the library book sale. Maybe I blacked out from book ecstasy. I can't say I like it any better and will seek out such books now, but maybe I won't dismiss them out of hand. 

 

The mythology is freaking dumb. Not all of it, but some it really is. Seriously. They call each other weirdly spelled versions of their animal names. They live in "Feral House". Most of all, it seems most of their rituals are conveniently revolve around sex, which you all know is just not a draw for me. 

 

Instalove. The book takes place over two or three days!!

 

And something that drives me nuts every time I read a version of it: the hero calls the heroine "little one". That is so creepy. I never understand why authors have their heroes infantilize the heroine like that. Am I supposed to be comfortable with them having sex? Blech.

 

However, there was something about this book that I really liked. I had to pry myself away from it. I really can't explain what it was that got me hooked and wouldn't let go. I wish I could. All I know is that I'm definitely continuing with the series.

That ending was just plain rude.
