Between Sinners and Saints (Audiobook)
Between Sinners and Saints - Marie Sexton

Why did I wait so long to read this?

 

Well, because I found out there was a Mormon character and I always worry about that being done wrong. And while Levi's family isn't a carbon copy of my own or other Mormon families I know, I can still see this family dynamic existing in real life. It's almost too easy to see it. Even the church presidents spews the "love the sinner but not the sin" nonsense that Levi's family does here. Sadly, the Church isn't contend with just that. The book really gives a fully detailed and nuanced view of the various Binders and how they feel about Levi being gay. It's never questioned that they love Levi, some of them just don't know how to love him unconditionally like the Church also teaches us to do. His family runs the full spectrum of strictly following Church doctrine to believing it's high time the Church get off their high horse and catch up with the times.

 

Still, I can see how some readers not familiar with Mormonism or Mormons might hate Levi's family, and that's okay too.

 

Ok, onto the good stuff. Levi starts out a selfish windbag who's only concern is where to stick his dick. Working for a gay night club in Miami gives him plenty of hookups but little else. He doesn't realize how hollow his life is until he meets Jamie. Jamie is a massage therapist who Levi goes to for help with his surfer's hip and Levi, in true douche bag fashion, tries to seduce Jamie. Jamie though has a lot of trauma in his past and he quickly throws Levi out on his keister where Levi belongs. When Levi finally realizes what an asshole he's been, he has a turn around and he and Jamie become friends.

 

This is a nice slow burn, as Jamie and Levi get to know each other, and Jamie learns that he can in fact trust Levi. Levi in turns learns how to put someone else's needs above his own. It's the start of the change to a better life for both of them.

 

The romance takes it's time and doesn't rush things, and I didn't feel like Jamie's sexual awakening in the latter half of the book was too easy. It's anything but easy for him, and it's Levi's patience and understanding that goes a long way to helping Jamie become comfortable with his own body and letting himself be vulnerable.

 

The narrator, John Solo, does a fantastic job with the story and characters. He really brings the story to life, and his voices for the various characters are all well done and feel perfect for each one.

Sight and Sinners - Susan Mac Nicol

This one is difficult for me to rate. The fact that I did enjoy reading a story with a psychic as one of the MCs certainly speaks in its favor – that’s not usually my thing. But I really liked Taylor and even Draven grew on me after a while. There were, however, also a few things I had some problems with.

 

Taylor and Draven had first met a while back on a murder case and Draven, who at that point did not believe in Taylor’s abilities, had been rather nasty to him. Now they meet again in connection with the death of a mutual friend and nothing has changed. There’s some serious animosity here, folks. And plenty of sexual tension...

Both men feel the attraction but for various reasons both are reluctant to let anyone come close. When they finally do, it’s explosive. The relationship quickly progresses from there until Draven lets out his inner douchebag again. I had little sympathy for him at this point and when I then had to read through one of my number one peeves, I had quite an inner rant going on;

Draven needed to apologize. Instead he lets out a few words of regrets and kisses Taylor before even using the word ‘sorry’. No f.... way, man. You were nowhere near done groveling as far as I am concerned. The forgiveness came way too easily. Not like it was the first time either that he was a douche!

(spoiler show)

 

 

Thet last part of the book is focused on Draven and a very personal issue he has to deal with. It took up so much page time I was torn between wondering what happened to my romance story and being amazed at how well this part was done (not that I can claim to have any knowledge of what it must be like to be in that situation). Very heavy on the emotions and bittersweet.

The ending is short but so very sweet. Just the way I like it.

Eats with Sinners: Loving Like Jesus
Eats with Sinners: Loving Like Jesus - A... Eats with Sinners: Loving Like Jesus - Arron Chambers I received a copy from the publisher for review on my blog. This does not effect my review.

I needed this reminder. So often, we go thought life, and end up sinking into comfortable routines. That's not the life Christ called us to, while there is nothing wrong with schedules and routines, we need to do more than life our lives. We need to help others learn what it means to live for Christ, and to encourage our brothers and sisters when they stumble in their walk with Christ. This book is great, because I know I struggle with this, and I'm sure many others do. I'm either afraid of rejection or I don't have the words to talk about Christ with someone who had walked away, or has never accepted the Grace offered to each of us. This book helps encourage us to push past the excuses, and to really reach out and love one another in the way the Christ lived, and lives in us.

Book Review For: The Sinners Touch by Apryl Baker
The Sinners Touch (A Manwhore Series) (Volume 2) - Apryl Baker

3.5 Stars
'The Sinners Touch' by Apryl Baker is book Two in the "Manwhore" series. This is the story of Kade and Angelique. I have read the first book "Touch Me Not" which was really great..but this is easily a standalone book.
Kade is an FBI agent who has come to town to look into a serial killer case. Which lands him back in front of Angelique who he once had a relationship with. Back in the day when he was just starting out as a Cop he went undercover and befriend Angelique brother. There he and Angelique dated and married but when he ended up arresting Angelique brother everything when bad. Kade said some awful things to her and just left.
Now in the present day we learn that Angelique happens to see the serial killer and he is now after her. Kade comes forward to protect her and he knows now is his second chance to win her back. But can Angelique trust him again?
I had a few issues with this book so I am bouncing back between 3.5 stars and 4 stars. I loved the writing and fell in love with the first book so much so I had to read this book right after it.
But this book I just had an issue with Kade who said he forgot that he was married. Granted he was undercover back then, but when he first meets Angelique in the present day, he calls her his wife and tells her that he used his real name in the wedding. That period of their lives was very traumatic and I am sure he would like to forget but I just can't get past that.
Overall this was a great read that I didn't put down...I had to know who things went.
"My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."
