Review: "The Other Book" by Roe Horvat
The Other Book - Roe Horvat

I'm sad to say that this book left me a little disappointed. After all those rave reviews, I expected something… more. Something more steamy, more kinky, more filthy. I dunno.

 

 

I wouldn’t even call this book "erotica". In my opinion, this was simply a romance novella with just a lot of sex scenes. And to be honest, those sex scenes weren't even especially outstanding or unique. I've read many other books with much dirtier sex than here.

 

And as for the romance aspect, the relationship went WAY too fast from "I hate him!" to "I want him!" to "I love him!" for my taste. I also couldn’t really connect to the MCs since I barely got to know them in the beginning (some build-up in the first few chapters would have been nice). So when it came to the more emotional stuff in the last 25%, I simply didn't care at this point. 

 

 

So I’m going with 3.5 stars. It wasn’t really the kinky fuck-fest that I was hoping for (#sadface), and for a romance it lacked exposition and character/relationship development for me.

 

But it was an ok read. Nothing more, but also nothing less.

Review: "Unbreakable Stories: Ian" (Unbreakable Bonds, #4.5) by Jocelynn Drake & Rinda Elliott

Normally, reading several chapters about 8 guys who do nothing but simply fix up a house would bore me to death.

 

But leave it to this crazy cast of adorable weirdos that I had a blast from start to finish. They made me laugh and blush and giggle so hard; man, I love each and every single one of these characters.

 

The cherry on the cake were those little Valentine’s Day short stories at the end, which just put the biggest smile on my face.

 

 

Perfect!

SURPRISE! Guess what? I loved this compilation of short stories too, just like every other book from this series.

 

 

Other than that, I really don't know how to proper review this book, other than repeating myself that I absolutely LOVE those characters, I LOVE this universe, I LOVE the feelz between each couple, I LOVE the writing and I absolutely LOVE these shorts.

 

And the best part? My sweet little Ian's book is next!

 

 

I might need a chill pill for that.

Review: "Unbreakable Stories: Snow" (Unbreakable Bonds, #2.5) by Jocelynn Drake & Rinda Elliott
Unbreakable Stories: Snow - Rinda Elliott,Jocelynn Drake

I love all these follow-up collections of short stories for each couple. This one is about Snow and Jude from "Shatter".

 

I'm usually not a big fan of stories about a couple's everyday life after they got their HEA, but it is really lovely to see how smitten these alpha men are for each other and how they are continually working on their relationship.

 

But the highlight of each #1.5, #2.5, etc. collection in this series are those stories that involve all the four friends together, which was the "Camping" story in this one, and which alone deserves all the 5 stars.

Review: "Unbreakable Stories: Lucas" (Unbreakable Bonds, #1.5) by Jocelynn Drake & Rinda Elliott

A much appreciated follow-up collection, which turns the HFN from the first book “Shiver” into a solid HEA during the course of 6 short stories.

 

This series is quickly becoming a favourite of mine, and I’m giddy with pleasure that I’m only at the beginning and that there are many more books left for me to read.
