a cute easy read
Ebb and Flow (Love's Charter Book 2) - A... Ebb and Flow (Love's Charter Book 2) - Andrew Grey
Independent Reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted my copy of this book. This is book two in the Love's Charter series, but you don't need to have read book one, Setting The Hook for this to make sense. But I will recommend that you do, and explain more as I go. We met Skippy in book one, he and his friends hired Mike's boat. Skippy is in town on business for his father's law firm, but is having a few days off before he starts. Billy Ray is now first mate to Bubba on Mike's boat, since he got a second boat with William's prototype engine in. Billy Ray knows he is gay, has done a long time but he hides it, mostly because of his religious father and the power he has over Billy Ray. But Skippy calls to Billy Ray, in a way no one else ever has. And it will take both men standing up to their overpowering fathers to figure out just want they really want. I listened to book one, but I READ this one. I should know better to switch mid series. This one doesn't have the warm and fuzzies that book one did, but still a cute read. Skippy's father sends him to the town in Florida (that I can't even say, let alone spell!) that has the harbour Mike works his charter out of. An oil company wants to built a pipeline right across the harbour. While that doesn't go down the way Skippy's father wanted, but the client and the twon are happy with the result. Standing up to his father, Skippy finds out just why it seemed he was so busy for the firm and just what his father really thinks of him. I loved that both men were able to stand up to their respective fathers, even though they both knew they could lose everything. I didn't feel the same connection I did to Skippy and Billy Ray that I did to Mike and William, but that might just be because I listened to that one and read this one. Oh, I said you didn't NEED to read book one first. But it might help you understand Bubba's reaction to Billy ray's coming out to him. When Mike did the same, Bubba reacted badly. He's better here, but you'd just get that extra insight. It says this book is 200 pages, but it didn't seem like it. One of those books you can just fall into and forget about the world for a while. Took me little over 90 minutes. A cute read, but not quite a warm and fuzzies one too. 4 solid stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

Adeline (Lady Archer's Creed) by Christina McKnight
Adeline (Lady Archer's Creed Book 3) - Christina McKnight,Amanda Mariel

 

An impressive slight of hand. She flipped the script on me. Adeline pays homage to a classic tale while reversing the roles of the main characters. The hero has a beautiful soul trapped inside of a damaged shell, while the heroine is beautiful on the outside and scarred by ugliness within. Adeline marks the first character of Ms. McKnight's that I did not like at first sight. She was rude, mean spirited and judgmental. Yet to love her is to understand her and through the eyes of a broken man and the heart of a gifted writer, readers are given that chance. Adeline proved that even the ugliest of hearts can change. No matter how many times I hear those words, it never tarnishes the value of the lesson.
