Attraction
Cross Stroke (On The Edge) (Volume 1) - Elizabeth Hartey Tracey & Dak literally run into one another. She is starting over, since her chance at happiness was ruined at the last school she attended. This time, she plans to keep to herself and study. Dak is immediately attracted to Tracey. They have a lot in common. The both love to skate, hate to be considered anything but the best, and both want to be the boss. This story starts your heart pumping right from the very first chapter. The characters have excellent banter, heat, and ton of competition thrown in. I loved how fun and easy this story was to read. I never wanted to put it down. I simply cannot wait for the next book in the On The Edge series. ***This early copy was given in exchange for an honest review only.

The Stroke of Midnight - Jordan Castillo Price

It was really good to read Jacob's POV for a change! I enjoyed getting inside his head and reading about his feelings for Victor.

 

They'd planned on spending New Year's Eve together, with Jacob's friends. It was going to be his chance to introduce his boyfriend to the group, but of course things don't go as smoothly when you are a PsyCop and work barges in late at night.

 

Vic got little page time here, but when he showed up and they shared that lovely moment, it spoke volumes of how far they've come already.

 

"This wasn't exactly the way I pictured tonight turning out," he said, "but for some reason I feel pretty okay about it."

A Stroke of Midnight
A Stroke of Midnight - Laurell K. Hamilton Merry is racing against time...there has been a murder within the Sithin, one of the Unseelie and a human reporter to be exact. The politics is still there, greater than ever as well as the race to get Merry pregnant before Cel is free from his torture.

It is interesting that some places has this series listed under the horror genre and I would have to agree. There is one particular scene at the end when you may just have to be near a bathroom while you read it just in case you need to 'urp' while reading it!

What was somewhat annoying with this book (one of the things mind you) is the fact that the writing centered less around the main mystery (plot) and delved ever more deeply into the sexual aspects of the Unseelie.


Although good things are happening because of the sex, some of it seemed more like filler to me. This is where the erotica aspects comes into play. As a matter of fact if you are also reading the Anita Blake series you will see many similarities between the writing, certain key words, positions, pre-sex discussions and phrases being used during the sex scenes. This can be annoying for readers of both series. Actually it can become annoying when a reader is only reading the one book. Take for example the word "spill"...just how many times does reader want to see that particular word used? It became grating on my nerves. One thing to watch out for is a 'double berthing' scene - that was interesting and a bit unusual 9and a bit shocking)to see in a mainstream book like this one. You'll see what I mean by that phrase after you read this.

Even though the threads of the initial plot are lost and we never hear or see the human police or the FBI again, you tend to get caught up in the story until the very ending, and then you find yourself scratching your head wondering what the heck you missed.

However, the politics, intregue and mystery did sustain much of this book and even though it only took place over one day. This book served its purpose to bring us to the next book quite well.

Great Story and Characters
Stroke of Midnight (One Night in South Beach) - Andie J. Christopher

Alana was still at the office at 10 p. m. on New Years Eve and her sister Carla kept bugging her to go out with her. Alana’s brother Javi only seemed interested in alcohol and women since he caught his soon to be ex wife cheating on him. Alana had been picking up the slack for Javi in the family business. Soon their father would be retiring and Javi was suppose to be taking over but if Javi didn’t change it would only get worse for Alana. Alana wanted Javi to be her big brother again not who he was being now. Carla who was Alana’s sister didn’t realize that she had the privilege of working part time as a interior decorator and full time party girl because of Alana’s efforts which Alana doubted her father would even notice since she was a girl. Then Carla asked Alana just to go out with her from eleven to midnight and Alana agreed . even though Carla was engaged and should be with her fiance. Cole was waiting back for a text from Javi as he had invited Cole to Miami for the holidays as Cole didn’t go home any more after his fiance cheated on him when he was deployed and then publicly humiliated Cole when he came home. Javi wasn’t answering Cole’s texts and Cole didn’t want to just sit in his hotel room so he ventured out. Cole had been a Navy Seal but he had gotten injured and he was no longer fit enough to continue as a Seal. the injury messed up Cole’s shoulder and ended Cole’s planned military career and left Cole without a purpose or plan for his life. Alana wanted to go home the minute she stepped into the Clevelander. Carla told Alana she was funnier after she did some shots of Tequila and had four shots each ready for them. Alana felt an appreciative look from a guy across the bar and Alana felt herself smile at him. The man seemed to only have eyes for Alana had never looked at someone and wanted to rub up against them before. The man came toward Alana and the countdown for new Years began. Then at the count of one the man reached down and kissed Alana . Alana had never felt so safe in her life yet also her mind and body so filled with desire. Alana knew that going home with a stranger was crazy but Alana’s gut told her the man wouldn’t hurt her. Alana was going to have a one night stand with a stranger and that was so out of character for Alana. She needed a night of pleasure and fun. Cole fell asleep near dawn and Alana dressed and left. Javi finally texted Cole and invited him to a party at his family’s home.Cole had grown up on the wrong side of the tracks and lived in a shack. Cole’s father had been abusive and his mother was either drunk or drying at on a tattered couch usually with a black eye. It had been plain to everyone else that Javi’s ex Karrie liked Javi for his money and what it could by her but Javi hadn’t seen it that way. Karrie was actually in love with her trainer. Then Cole was being introduced to Alana at Javi’s parents house. Alana was Cole’s best friend's younger sister and he had just spent the night with her. Javi and Cole usually picked up women together. Cole felt he wasn’t good enough for any woman as the two women he had allowed himself to care for - his mother and Beth his ex- hadn’t really wanted him as he wasn’t good enough.After that Cole hadn’t opened himself to another woman .But Alana reminded him of all he was missing. I really loved this story. I mean the best friend’s sister has been done a lot but it didn’t stop me from loving this story. I loved how Alana and Cole became more than a one night stand.i also loved how Cole not only wanted to have sex with Alana but liked her and wanted to spend time with her talking and doing things besides sex together. I think Javi acted naturally as the big brother. I felt bad for the hurt Cole had felt from his mom and Beth. this was just a good read. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this story and I highly recommend.
