Fractured Silence (Talon Pack #5) by Carrie Ann Ryan
Fractured Silence (Talon Pack Book 5) (Volume 5) - Carrie Ann Ryan

Carrie Ann Ryan’s FRACTURED SILENCE, is an amazing addition to the Talon Pack Series.  Parker Jamenson is the son of three Packs and part of a prophecy; Brandon Brentwood is the Talon Pack Omega, and Avery Montag is the daughter of a traitor.  The triad needs each other in more ways than one.  This contemporary PNR is suitable for adult audiences.

 

Parker, Brandon, and Avery are likeable characters.  Parker was goddess-touched and became the voice of the wolves.  He is from the line of the first hunter.  He is dying and needs to find his mate.  Brandon has been struggling with being Omega and is also in need of a mate.  Avery is a noble character.  She is nothing like her father.  She is a good person that wants to make up for her father’s treachery.  She is brave and nurturing.  She goes through a lot of changes in this story and handles it with grace.  The three characters have wonderful chemistry and complement each other well.  They are stronger and better together. 

 

Once again, Carrie Ann Ryan does an amazing job with her plot.  McMaster continues to be an interesting threat.  He is a deceptive opponent that should not be underestimated.  The prophecy was well integrated into the novel.  There are some tragedies that the packs face that made my heart break for the characters.  FRACTURED SILENCE is full of details and surprises.  The story is skillfully written and hard to put down.  I love this series and cannot wait for Carrie Ann Ryan’s next book, DESTINY DISGRACED.  I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Release Blitz - The House Mate

AN_banner_WEB

 

      house mate_amazon

What’s sexier than a bad boy? A bad ass man who’s got his shit together.

 

Max Alexander is nearing thirty-five. He’s built a successful company, and he’s conquered the professional world, but he’s never been lucky in love. Focusing so much time on his business and raising his daughter, adulting has come at the expense of his personal life.

 

His social skills are shit, his patience is shot, and at times, his temper runs hot.

 

The last thing he has time for is the recently single, too gorgeous for her own good young woman he hires to take care of his little girl. She’s a distraction he doesn’t need, and besides, there’s no way she’d be interested. But you know what they say about assumptions?

 

 

This is book 3 in the Roommates series, but each book can be read as a complete standalone as they all feature new couples to fall in love with.

Pretty good read...
Levitate - Kaylee Ryan

Levitate - Kaylee Ryan 

 

*3.5 STARS*

 

This was a pretty good read.  It was very angsty with both Max and Kensington's backgrounds but it lent importance to the story.  I thought it unrealistic with Max going off with some chick after getting rejected by Kensi that Kensi would fall for his charms so easily, but it is fiction.

 

I also had a hard time believing the scene between Max, Kensi and Justin (JT) at the bar at the end of the book.  Too simple.

 

I was glad to see that Max's mom never made an actual appearance in the book.  There were a few scenes in the book that made me roll my eyes, but it certainly didn't take away from the story. 

 

I listened to this one on audio and I find that audio really highlights the fact that some authors write dialogue in a way that people don't actually speak.  Like when authors don't use contractions in their dialogue. It sounds odd.  There weren't (see I used a contraction there) a ton of parts where that happened but when it did, I really is highlighted with the audio.

 

This is my first book by this author and I'd definitely try another one of her books.  I liked the characters and the story.  So, I look forward to trying more of her work soon.

The House Mate
The House Mate - Kendall Ryan ARC Review: The House Mate (Roommates) by Kendall Ryan

Ms. Ryan knows how to set off steam and she proves that with her Roommates series. The House Mate raises the temperature level to HOT. A single dad devoted to his daughter, yet clueless in the love department. What's more sexy than that? Kendall Ryan sweetened the pot with a dose of family but stayed true to the sex appeal readers have come to know and love. Full of heat with a touch of sweet equals out to a combo that's hard to beat.

Still loving this
Jughead (2015-) Vol. 2 - Chip Zdarsky,Ryan North,Jack Morelli,Derek Charm

When Jughead mistakenly ends up on a date with Sabrina - yeah, the teenage witch, it would be an easy way out of writing him as asexual - and I half-suspected that the comics would go this way.    But the thing is that Sabrina was originally hired as a talking burger - she dressed up as a huge burger - which sent Jughead into fits: he loves burgers in an almost sexual way, but ladies, meh.   At first he just wants to talk to a giant burger, so when he asks Sabrina to do something, it's completely innocent.   When she assumes it's a date, everyone gets excited: Jughead on a date!   I think, on some level, they believe the magical properties of a vagina - any vag that gets all up into a burger costume - will 'fix' Jughead.   Although I suspect this is shaded by me basically being told to just have sex, because I'll like it, and people assuming there's something wrong with me.   

 

To be fair to the comic itself, it never comes out and says this with most of the characters.  And it could be that they're simply excited that Jughead is showing interest of some kind of romantic sort towards anyone - or anything.   (Again, he likes her best in her burger costume.  In an elaborate fantasy in which they get married and have a child, she never takes off her costume and their baby is a baby burger.)

 

Jughead, afraid of insulting Sabrina, doesn't correct her - which means she assumes he has romantic, or at least sexual, interest in her and when he's nervous and has his friends crash his date to help him out, Sabrina gets angrier and angrier.   And you really don't want to anger a witch.   Archie, oblivious to the fact that Jughead is still asexual, but trying to help the only way he knows how tries to get them to kiss.

 

Still, Jughead works through his confusion and eventually apologies to Sabrina.   Basically, he figures out he's not so much into ladies as talking burgers.   It's pretty awesome that they stuck to this, and somehow found a way to explore alternatives to the asexual aspect without undermining him as a character, or saying there was something wrong with him.  I personally really appreciated this because I know I've done the same thing: explored, hell, even denied, and it didn't make me any less wrong or different.   It just meant I needed to try.   (And I have a friend who saw Paula Poundstone, who is openly asexual and a comedian.   Apparently she made a joke about trying sex every ten years to see if she changed and likes sex, and nope.   My point just because you are something, there can be confusing times, times that you question, but only you can decide what you are.   And because of that, I found this storyline realistic, honest, and I love that it didn't retract Jughead asexuality or change him to try and make him more palatable to the mainstream.)

 

I'm loving this so, so much.
