Heat
Blocked: A Breakaway Novel - L.P. Dover

This is Book # 2, in the Breakaway series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading this series in order.

 

Dallas is a Goal Tender for a hockey team.  He is also a hothead.  He is having a hard time adjusting to having to teach someone to be his backup.  Dallas is also incredibly attracted to Callie.

 

Callie is a nurse, who cannot seem to find a good man.  Her brother plays on the same team with Dallas.  He wants her to stay away from hockey players.  If only she could.  For some reason she is drawn to him.

 

This was an amazingly hot and sexy book!  Has lots of heat in many other ways too.  The characters just mesh so well.  I love this Breakaway series and I hope we get more stories.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Too Soon Dead: An Alexander Brass Mystery 1 - Michael Kurland

a macabre tableau found in a darkroom stops DeWitt's jokes for just a little while.

though certainly a Crime & Mystery offering, I wanted something a little less intense, and a little more witty, than the last two disturbio-fests I read. they were excellent...but I want to keep my sanity. anyway, this has a Nero Wolfe feel--Brass doubling for the Wolfe personality--with DeWitt as the legman, narrator, and wry commentator on whatever comes his way while he pokes at things that aren't quite kosher. this is a hit with me so far; 1930s New York feels great as a soother after much (well-enjoyed) horrific turmoil--of course I'm saying that before the first body drops...

Too Soon Dead: An Alexander Brass Mystery 1 - Michael Kurland

oof! I just read two really freaky books in a row--wild plotting, sick nutty people, cruel twists of fate--and I guess that's what I get for doing Madball and then moving immediately to Cold Moon Over Babylon. eerie to eerier. now I don't know if my attempt to "dial it down a bit" in the form of Too Soon Dead is going to be the major backfire of the year...but I'm betting the book is at least not so freaky. I'm going for a lighter approach to Mystery as a sort of mind-cleanser--I mean, no matter who gets offed, and how, it's New York City in 1935...no swamps, no carnivals. honestly, how weird could it get?

 

I just jinxed it, didn't I. probably be the weirdest book I read all year...
