We Met in Dreams
We Met in Dreams - Rowan McAllister

“Yesterday in the park, I was feeling quite sorry for myself. I sat on that bench for a long time, trying to dredge up the strength to return to my empty apartments. Then an angel dropped in my lap, invited me to tea, and kissed me, and ever since I’ve been struggling to believe my luck. I feel as if I’m in a dream, and at any moment, I’ll wake broken and alone again.”

 

This book is the perfect blend of paranormal, mystery, historical fiction and romance.  Just an absolutely beautiful story that kept me on the edge of my seat; kept me continuously wondering who to trust, what to believe and how this would end.  And none of it was as I suspected which made the journey that much better.

 

I adored both these beautiful men and how they each became the angel the other needed to see through their darkness and see light and happiness awaiting them with each other.

 

And the visual descriptions of this manor, the period dress and the glimpses into London were perfectly captured for me. I was left mezmerized. 

 

Thanks Marco for the recommendation...truly one to follow.

Reading progress update: I've read 54%.
KAGE Unleashed - Maris Black

“Tell me you trust me,” he said, his voice barely controlled as he pounded into my body.

But I didn’t know if I trusted him. The truth was, it didn’t matter if I trusted him or not.

“I would die for you,” I said instead, because it was true. Trust was irrelevant. He could break my trust a hundred times, and I would still die for him.

He walked me forward a couple of steps and bent me over the top of the balcony rail, as if testing my claim. Only the tops of my shoulders and my head were floating, but the near-invisibility of the balcony gave the illusion of much more.

“I would die for you, too,” he said. “I don’t care.” And then he gave me everything he had, surging up into my body with the strength of ten men, showing me with his body what could not be said with words.

Tate
Tate (The Temptation Series) - Ella Frank

To Tate,

From the very beginning I had a plan for my life.

But it wasn’t until we met that I knew it was you.

~Logan

 

Another book and another emersion into the love between Logan and Tate.  Who would have thought that Ella could continue to grow and expand on this couple so beautifully and so successfully.  I am in awe.

 

First off, no one should read any review that has spoilers and should honestly avoid even reading non-spoiler reviews...and yet here I am writing one.  So shut this off and go read this book and enjoy it for yourself…I seriously doubt anyone who loves Logan and Tate would be disappointed.

 

This next chapter continues to explore these men, their backgrounds, history, fears, doubts and unwavering love for the other.  The glimpses and nuggets of times past, especially from Try, are woven beautifully into the story and simply give new meaning and insight into the love between these two men. 

 

I have always said that for me this is Logan’s story.  His character development for me is just unmatched and his love for Tate continues to be heartfelt and heartbreaking.  I simply adore him.  And this one only solidifies my thoughts on this.  I will say however that Tate seemed to realize that perhaps Logan is just as much his Truth as Tate is to Logan. And that discovery was rather breathtaking.

 

There, in a bathroom that was built for sin, the passion eased and the fever simmered until the deeper, scarier feelings began to consume the two of them. Tate opened himself up to the onslaught as Logan wove his fingers through his hair and cradled his head, seeking more. Tate gave it without any conscious thought, just handed it over as he would his last breath, should Logan require it, and then he was falling all over again. Falling for the charm of the silver-tongued lawyer who’d picked him to sit down opposite that first night. Falling into a relationship he’d always wanted but never dreamed he would have. But most of all, he was falling in love with Logan all over again, just as he’d done every day since he’d known him.

 

Now, as for secondary characters, Will has stepped up to become one of my favorite characters in this series.  Such a huge heart this man has and someone who has quickly become the father that these boys desperately need. 

 

I am honestly sad to know there is only one more installment left.  I hate to see this come to closure but given how book 4 and 5 have gone, I can honestly say that the rereads could only get better and better as we view these early moments between them with all new eyes, knowing now what the future has in store. 

 

So much love for this couple.

Yanni's Story (The Spencer Cohen Series, #4)
Yanni's Story - N.R. Walker

Once again NR Walker brings forth compassion and understanding in her most recent novel.  Yanni’s Story deals with physical, sexual and mental abuse and the process towards recovery. This story is not an easy one but it is done so quite beautifully and patiently.  And while the relationship between Yanni and Peter slowly develops, it is certainly justified and well explained. Recovery is not an overnight process.  It is not something that you can just snap out of.  Trust and feeling safe is of utmost importance. There are triggers and some of which may not even be identifiable until it’s upon you.  Walker handled these aspects amazingly well and so thoughtfully.

 

Peter is an absolutely beautiful character who is the ultimate protector and loving force that Yanni so desperately needs. I do wish we had gotten more on this man.  I felt his background and desires to play the Daddy role in a relationship lacking.  I also wish we could have gotten a scene with both Yanni and Peter in therapy together. 

 

Overall, I found that their relationship developed quite well, and the scenes with Patrice quite thought provoking.  Walker's Whoopi Goldberg description for Patrice was a perfect casting.

 

An absolute highlight in this book is the secondary cast of characters. Not only do we get glimpses of Spencer and Andrew, but we get a heavy dose of Andrew’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Landon. I have to say I loved them the most and specifically Allen.  And yes, once again I have cast the amazing Craig T. Nelson as this man in my head.  I tend to gravitate to him for these types of amazing fathers.  He along with the amazing Diane Keaton perfectly fit this special couple for me.  Maybe I have seen “Family Stone” one time too many, who knows.

 

  

 

Overall, Walker brings such passion to her characters, and Yanni’s growth and recovery process was heartbreakingly real.  I do wish certainly portions of the book had progressed a little quicker however deep down I understood the need to show the reality of recovery.  While this is not my favorite of Walker’s books it is definitely unforgettable.  I look forward to hopefully more in this series. I can definitely see other characters who desperately need their stories told as well.
