Broken Circle (Sirius Wolves #2) by Victoria Sue
Broken Circle - Victoria Sue

Took some notes while reading. Reporting back:


- The first 10% of the book is all about child birth. Not sure what's with refusing painkillers during 14+ hours of painful misery. I would rather be ready and alert for my babies and enjoy the experience. But to each its own. Not judging, just saying those 10% did feel like 14 hours.

 

- What I wanted when I started this installment was the evil doctor to come back. What I got was a hormonal gamma. like uber hormonal. 

However, Paul hinted that there is hope yet! Abuse and torture and not a drop of epidural in sight! =)

 

- The second case of TSTL kicks in around 40%. I am disappointed. It takes away from pain and torture because - honestly - it's self inflicted :/ Someone needs to put a leash on Aden and lock him in a cage for his own safety. Oh, wait! The good doctor, it seems, is the one with the right ideas!

 

- Nate is "innocent"! Hahaha, good one! Almost killed one person, and intentionally at that, then shot and killed another, conspired with the worst most evil doctor evah, not to mention that shady business with his own mother, and yet he is "innocent". I am about to die laughing here!

The Chimera (Bound Gods #1) by Adrienne Wilder
The Chimera - Adrienne Wilder

Frigging brilliant! My only complaint is that Kaleb is not suffering the change of scenery enough. He must have had friends, he must have had hopes and ambitions and plans, like being in college, obtaining freedom from his father. Maybe the reality is yet to settle in? :D

Looking forward to the next installment.

PS 
There are problems with editing, but I am choosing to ignore them since they were not too bad.
Mixed up "he, she" in reference to Kaleb's trans male brother drove me bonkers. There should be "He" in this book with this particular set of characters, no way around it.

Fighting Instinct (L'Ange #2) by Mary Calmes
Fighting Instinct - Mary Calmes

A  very quick read. Cut out headache-inducing bickering and meaningless dialog and the story shrinks from 224 pages to about 124. Cut out rivers of blood and gun-waving, and you get it down to about 70 in no time. Then tune out the descriptions of posh surroundings and you are looking at mere 60. Pull out and burn the bush that the author beats around instead of moving the story forward and you can get maybe 40 pages of the actualstory
I am not going to review that story, just want to mention that yet another creature went through pain and suffering and was almost destroyed emotionally and physically so we could read about Arman and his guns.

Stygian by Santino Hassell
Stygian - Santino Hassell

I have a bit of a problem with the characters. Maybe a couple.

I hate to say it, but Jeremy comes off as self-centered and whiny. I am not blaming him, he had lived through too much loss and pain, I get it. Yet the fact remains.

Everyone's either relative(s) or a friend or a lover is dead or a drunk or a punk or a weirdo. Throw me one undamaged person. Please. Because this is like reading a book where everyone is gay, even pets. Weird.

And one more thing: I don't find it creepy or scary, just overly dramatic. I was skipping paragraphs and - never thought I ever would, while reading SH - pages. 

3.5 stars. Since I really liked Hunter and his evil mindf*cking ways, I am rounding this up to 4.

PS I had no problem with the ending whatsoever. It was clear where things were going, I thought it was perfect. Another reason I rounded up, not down. I do hope for a sequel, just to see if Q got over his "sickness".

Эклипсис (Эклипсис #1) by Tiamat
Эклипсис - Тиамат,Tiamat

К сожалению, развитие дел в книге перестало для меня работать.

Даб-кон в сопровождении насильного оргазма - нэ моэ. Впрочем, это я еще смогла бы читать, и даже получать удовольствие, если бы один из тройничка, толкая эльфа в объятия его бывшего насильника, при этом не клялся жертве в вечной любви. Кавалер Альва меня сильно разочаровал. Предательством тут попахивает, дорогие мои, сеньк ю вери мач, предательством и извращенством не самого приятного образа. Лечение ПТСД методом "клин-клином вышибают", только усиливает травму. 

Сваливать похоть и вину на жертву изнасилования, простите, опять не мое - был там, делал это, получил, как говорится, рубашенцию (для утерения соков страстно-мордастного совокупления).

Хоу-эва, до этой главы история была замечательна и трогательна и читала и читала бы я ее дальше, но мои заморочки, извините, не позволяют. 

Поэтому оставляю днф-ом и без оценки. Что, на самом деле, есть очень, очень жаль :(
