I write about love, but I’ve never experienced it. Sure, I’ve been with guys that I cared about. Even thought I found ‘the one’. He turned out to be the frog and not the prince.

A few Frank Sinatra songs and a wildly handsome cowboy who calls me Darlin’, will have me second guessing everything I ever thought I knew about love.

Does happily ever after really exist…or is it only something I write about in books?

Love Profound is book two in the Cowboys and Angels series.

     
 
The more I read this author the more I like her writing.This is the the second installment and I really enjoyed Amelia's story as I loved her in the first book.
 
I really enjoy stories like these where the main characters have a slew of over protective brothers who are always in their little sisters business and love life threating any man who even tries to approach her as they alway threaten to pound the heck out of who is even brave enough to attempt seduction.It makes for some really funny interactions when Amelia stands up to them and gives them shit right back.Amelia is a bit of a spitfire so you can just imagine how frustrating and funny these situations are.For all their protectiveness and bullying  you can see just how close all these siblings are and how much they love one another.I really love that.
 
The more a read about this family of brothers and sisters is that they all have their own demon's and own insecurities but when they fall they fall hard and Amelia was no different.
 
I loved Amelia as she was funny quirky a spitfire,speaks her mind, is someone sexy and beautiful at yet doesn't flaunt it or really even own it  .She is just a girl comfortable in her own skin and in touch with her needs and wants when It comes to her own sexual needs.
 
Wade omg! , what a heartthrob I have to say I fell head over heels for him myself just for the kindness and sweetness her showed Steeds and Paxton's daughter Chloe and how they were friends.Favorite and one of those ah moments is when Wade gives Chloe flowers when picking Amelia up for a date so her feeling weren't hurt saying it was best friends day so she wouldn't feel left out.My heart swooned right then and there.I found Wade to be compassionate and kind and caring and just a super sweet fun loving cowboy with a really big heart.
 
This was a real cute and fun quick read for us.I loved the characters especially Amelia's brothers and her sister Waylynn they were fun and engaging to read about.I loved the chemistry that Wade and Amelia had between them it was hot as hell as they gave off sparks when they were in the same room together.The sex scenes were sweet and sexy and hot.
 
We have to give a shout out to Aunt V what a pisser she was.You had to laugh out loud every time she opened her mouth.She was really a funny lady and the things she spoke about were just outrageous and funny.
(Grinning)
 
And we loved Waylynn to as there is more than meets they eye with her.She lost herself for a bit but she's finding the self she buried and I can't wait to see the trouble she stirs up once she is back in full force.Looking forward to her story down the line.
 
 
I loved how Amelia wrote about love and romance yet never really experienced it herself  and yet after meeting Wade and falling in love she will definitely have some racy new and sexy material finding it's way into her new books as she is now experiencing some of the things she only wrote about.I loved that Amelia was a risk taker and that bathroom scene with Liam proved just that.
(grins)
 
What a light fun romance read that we really enjoyed reading cover to cover and we can't wait to read the next book in its series.
 
Amelia can finally say she definitely got to ride a cowboy and it was amazing and life changing and she loved it !
 
Recommended read to all!
 
5 stars from us

review SPOILER ALERT! 2015-03-20 16:00
The Missing Piece - Shel Silverstein

     I first came across this book years ago while I was scanning through the aisles of the then newly-opened PowerBooks store in Greenbelt Makati.  

 

 

     I had not read a single children's book for quite some time as my interest in them had waned already, so it was quite a surprise for me to find myself actually reading one whose cover and title caught my attention. By the third page, I was taken, much to my disbelief.

   "It was a missing piece. And it was not happy."

     Each page had only one to a few sentences and a simple hand-drawn image that could have been penned by a 3-year old. Hell, even the  sentences could have been thought up by a six year old kid. It was not the images nor the individual sentences that impressed me but rather the message behind the sentences and imagery, which I would describe a nothing short of profound, truthful, and accurate.  So profound, in fact, that to this day, I still recommend adults to read the book. 

 

     How impactful was the book? I was so caught up in reading it that I could not put it down, despite the fact that I was standing on a sign that read "No Private Reading".  I only paused at times to wipe the tears off my face! Even before I was done reading the book, I was already a mess.  A grown man crying in a public bookstore because of a childrens' book. lol

 

     The fact that the entire book had a black and white theme on every page-- something that few would dare expect to appeal to young readers; the fact that each page contained no more than one word to one sentence; and that the  images were extremely simple, made for a brilliantly thought-of piece.  Whereas TV had its "Sesame Street"; books have Shel Silverstein's masterpieces. "The Missing Piece" is one brilliant work of art.  

 

      I found a video of The Missing Piece in YouTube.  So if you are okay with a spoiler, go watch it.  Have a box of tissues handy.  Be ready to break down. Don't say I didn't warn you. 

 

     And if you think you will end up not buying the book just because a free video is available online,  I still think  that  owning a physical copy is still worth every penny. Watch the video and find out why.

[REVIEW] One Shot by Rowan McBride
One Shot - Rowan McBride

One Shot by Rowan McBride My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Recommended for: Muscle fetish and hot manhandling fans
Read from March 23 to 24, 2014 — I own a copy, read count: 1

 

 

Taboo Office Affairs with a Wickedly Delicious Twist!

One shot for immunity,
One shot for aesthetic pursuit,
One shot for love

Afterall the path of our life depends on all those one shots (opportunities) we choose to take in life. There's no rewind or playback buttons in life. That's not a bad thing really if you were to see it as a catalyst to push us to live our life to the fullest and a cause to cherish what we have. Doesn't this makes everything you have sweeter and your journey more worthwhile?

Destiny is created by yourself and it isn't defined. You don't like your current reality? Then re-write it yourself. It's all you and in you!


The Story
A story about a flu vaccine that affects the physical appearance of those inoculated. This phenomena made the MC uncertain of his own standing. Peer pressure to be inoculated was great and he was receiving enormous pressure from Riley, a newbie under his team. Nick was no longer sure if aesthetic appeal has no part in his career advancement, his ego certainly needed a boost. Is he really that satisfied with the current him?

This is a fun and fascinating read. One Shot is an engaging and compelling romance with strong presence of fetishism (will talk about that part later) for the erotica aspect. The premise has a science fiction plot which freaks out the more delicate M/M readers. Luckily I happen to be a fan of such theme (will also talk about the theme later). I am a versatile reader even for erotica and it's a losing battle to count the number of kinks I have.

To me, this is an erotica despite the low sex scene count. In fact, the whole book is thick with a particular sexual fetishism although it's not a widely known one. Continue reading this review to find out what I am going on about. *sly smile*


The Main Characters
If you really want someone, then why hold back? Do what makes you happy. Life is short anyways. This phrase suits Riley Jameson the most. He is a go getter in life. He saw Nick Carlyle, liked him, and took his risk. He might not be great with flirting, but he has a good heart and was quite a romantic person. I do liked him very much because I wish I could be as courageous in life as him.

Nick Carlyle the main character of this book didn't have many friends but he is unquestionably a genius at his work although when it comes to the social aspect he is lacking and clueless. It took some time for him to endear to me, I am glad that he is able to accept his weaknesses and was brave enough to take a leap of faith in pursuit of happiness.

I wouldn't say they are made for each other even if they think physically they fit perfectly, but I do think Nick is certainly learning from Riley on how not to over analyze his life and actually live it for once. So Riley is a good thing for Nick. And Nick is great for Riley in other areas too. Partners that encourages mutual personal growth and development is always a good thing. They bring out the best of each other.

I love that both characters wasn't the perfect soul and that makes them all the more endearing, adorable and relatable.


About the Fetish and Terminology
The story was well written, I love the chemistry and sexual tension, plus the premise is a fascinating and memorable one. You know, I am actually having much fun laughing my heart out here because it seems that many didn't even know they read a book on muscle and growth fetish. These readers just find the premise odd and unconventional. In reality, this book is actually targeting readers with that fetish. As I've said, that kink dominates the whole book. And yet many says it's not heavy on sexy times. Lol. For me, the entire book was sexy as hell -- sexy times non-stop for readers with the right kink. Yeah baby! And that office molestation and dubcon sex scenes was hawt!

One more thing I don't get is why many readers tries to categorize this book as yaoi? Many other M/M books applies the larger top and smaller bottom or stronger top and weaker bottom recipe, so why is this any different? Other non-yaoi books also have those protesting and in denial bottoms and the same goes with the top pursuing the bottom plot. So what gives? Was it because vanilla innocent readers don't know what to make of that muscle fetish thingy and can't put a finger on this particular theme? For Japanese, yaoi is applicable to M/M romance as well you know? There is a difference between yaoi and shonen-ai tho, as the latter is meant for young adults since it does not contain explicit sexual content like yaoi. There isn't really any distinguishable differences between yaoi and M/M romance. It's just a term used by the Japanese to refer to homoerotic/homoromantic fiction. They would use it to refer to English language gay romance as well because that is Yaoi.


In a Nutshell
If you are a fan of couples with profound physical size difference, loves sexy manhandling in your story and adored sweet romances then this book is the perfect fit for you provided if you don't the mind physical growth and muscle fetish. Needless to say, this book caters to my unique fetishism perfectly. It was a joy to read and I have enjoyed it immensely.

Should you desire for more of such reads along the same line, you may want to try out Want Me by the same author along with her other unpublished works, The Jascian's Toy and Jonah's Giant. I loved it all of course.

I am actually glad this book still appeals to the general M/M romances readers despite its peculiar premise. That's a good thing. Please don't be afraid to try out new things, you will never know if you don't try. Just try to approach this book with an open mind.

It's nice when a book makes you think and and reminds you of what is important in life. Self reflection could bring about great changes in life. "Seeing within changes one's outer vision." quoted by Joseph Chilton Pearce

Description:
Nick Carlyle understands the intricacies of his job better than anyone. He lives to crunch those numbers and his skills are valued throughout the company. If his personal life might be lacking, he doesn't notice, especially whenever he steals a harmless glance or two at Riley Jameson's tight body.

When a universal flu shot is developed, it's hailed as a miracle, and rightly so. But the seemingly harmless side-effects begin to change the world, warping the statistics that Nick's always used to guide him through life.

No one changes as much as Riley. Suddenly the young man is bigger, stronger. He's also aggressive in ways Nick isn't prepared for, and for the first time analyzing the numbers does nothing to help the situation.

And if numbers can't help him, what can?


Author's note:

I’m having trouble finding my “rambling” groove with One Shot. This is my fourth or fifth draft, and usually it only takes one. I can’t seem to find anything to say other than “I had a helluva lot of fun writing the story.”

 

But I did. I like Nick. He’s a really good guy and isn’t conscious of that fact. Doing what’s right comes naturally, but because it comes naturally, he tends not to notice that the people around him care for and respect him. And I like Riley. He’s fun and aggressive and he’s always watching Nick. He says what he feels. Nick has no idea how to handle the attention and being off balance that way is good for him. Hell, I even like Greg, one of Nick’s coworkers. I was bound and determined to make him a hardcore villain, but he turned out to be a pretty good guy, even if he might be a little bit of a lush.

 

I like how the characters interact with each other. I like the way the story evolved from what was supposed to be a five thousand word short to a thirty-six thousand word novella.

 

I guess what I’m trying to say here is that I like One Shot, and I hope you like it too. :)
