My Thoughts⇜ 

 

I would like to thank the Author for writing a story with the perfect blend of sexy stuff, angsty love, humor and some olympic inspired drama.  Everything about this clicked with me.  I loved it.  That's why I'm so bummed, that the second book in the series, has so many reviews that are two stars or less...

 

Narration is excellently done by Amanda Dolan, she has a great voice for this genre of book…and she did an excellent English accent as well (at least from this American girls pov).  Shaun Grindell did the male pov and he was good too, but I think I would of liked a more masculine voice for Freddie.

⇝Sex Factor⇜  Just the right amount of well written sexy scenes…

January Reads
Man on the Run - Carl Weber
The Score - Kiki Swinson
The Mark (The Score Series) - Kiki Swinson
Copycat - Kimberla Lawson Roby
A Note Yet Unsung (A Belmont Mansion Novel) - Tamera Alexander
Luxury and Larceny: Part 1 - Ty Marshall
Breathless - Beverly Jenkins

I read 7 books in January. I'm so proud of myself that I stayed focused and tried to read everyday. There were a couple books that I did have to put down, but I'm happy I did. Leaving books that aren't working for me is something I promised to do in 2017 and obviously with 7 books read it's working. 

 

I read;

 

Breathless by Beverly Jenkins                    4 stars

 

Man on the Run by Carl Weber                   4 stars

 

The Score by Kiki Swanson                         3 stars

 

The Mark by Kiki Swanson                          3 stars

 

Copycat by Kimberly Lawson Roby             3 stars

 

A Note Yet Unsung by Tamera Alexander   3 stars

 

Luxury & Larceny by Ty Marshall                2 stars

 

 

It was a good month and in February I'm expecting to read more and hopefully read more 5 and 4 star reads.

Settling the Score
Settling the Score - Eden Winters Settling the Score - Eden Winters
I love when I can't put a book down once I have started and, with "Settling the Score", it happened. I have been awake till 4 AM last night because I needed to finish it.

This is a beautiful love story between a man who has written 28 books and a guy who never has finished one. The contrast between them seems huge but, as you go along with the story, you realize both are very similar and they complete each other perfectly and, above everything, both are good men who just want to be happy and to be loved.

This is a slow burn MM romance with a southern naïve guy and an educated man who knows betrayal and disappointment first hand. Both main characters are very likable and not perfect at all but, at the same time, I can not say anything bad about them or their behavior, because I loved each one separately and I loved them together.

Is impossible not to feel sorry for Joey since the very beginning. Dumped and outed on national television in front of all his family in a small (and homophobic) southern town. But this is the perfect presentation for him because even in this moment, with all his dreams shattered, he managed to be kind, sweet and honest. Adjectives that characterize him till the end of the book.

I think the thing I loved the most is the inner evolution in Joey. How the shy guy becomes the confident man who wins the cynical writer's heart.

This is a great book. You are gonna smile (a lot). You're gonna feel sympathetic with both characters. Probably you're gonna cry (Oh yeah, I did it a couple of times) and you are gonna enjoy the journey these two started the day they met.
But I have to warn you: If you are expecting a lot of rough sex scenes and dirty talk (things that I absolutely love in a book, don't misunderstand me) this one is not for you. This is a sweet, beautiful story, that leaves you smiling and thinking good people deserves happiness in their lives.

Congratulations Eden Winters! You have a new fan in me!

Dean was deep...who knew?
The Score - Elle Kennedy

The Score - Elle Kennedy 

 

I really enjoyed this one! Dean was a lot deeper than I gave him credit for in previous books. Allie's character was perfect for him and I'm glad they got together. 

I don't know if Coach O'Shea's part in the story was really that necessary. And then when Miranda came into play? It just didn't move the story along that much in my opinion.

But, beyond that I really loved the story and would have loved to have more of an epilogue for them. I definitely want to know what happens to them in the future.  I've really enjoyed this series thus far.  Even when I don't think I have much interest in the characters, I think that the author does an amazing job of pulling me in and making me care about them.

 

I listened to this one audio and read the kindle edition (whispersync deals are my new addiction), and I thought the narrator's did a decent job.

 

I will definitely be continuing on with this series.  Especially with the bombshell Tucker delivered at the end of this book.  There's no way I could stay away!
