Trigger Warning
Trigger Warning: Short Fictions and Disturbances - Neil Gaiman

I wasn’t a fan of this. Honestly I really like Neil Gaiman in like pretty much every way except for in his writing, so um that’s a thing. The thing that really kills me is I can’t figure out what doesn’t work for me about his writing, because I like all the elements but when they go together it doesn’t work for me :/  At this point I feel like I’ve tried enough of his adult work to just move on it’s just a bummer because pretty much everyone I know Loves his books.

Review: Stolen by the Space Pirate (Ruby Robbins Sexy Space Odyssey #2) by Nina Croft
Stolen by the Space Pirate (Ruby Robbins’ Sexy Space Odyssey) - Nina Croft

Ruby finds herself back where it all started. Her mission may be back on track but now she may be in more danger than ever before.

Here we get to see more of the other creatures Ruby and her friends have to deal with and the villains they have to defeat. There were a few twists along the way that kept the story interesting and a pretty awesome, action-packed, nail-biting ending, which was another cliffhanger.

We also got to see Killian in a more redeeming light, which was good of course. Unfortunately Ruby continued to act like a child in a chocolate factory regardless of everything of what was happening to her. I mean, I get that there are certain things that get some people off, and hey! More power to them for enjoying what they like when it comes to sex. However, I wished she started acting more like a hero and less like a lioness in heat. All in all a good continuation to the story and I’ll definitely read the final book.

Arc Review: Rescued by the Space Pirate (Ruby Robbins Sexy Space Odyssey, #1) by Nina Croft
Rescued by the Space Pirate (Ruby Robbins’ Sexy Space Odyssey) - Nina Croft

I’ll start by saying this: H-O-T! Because it was. It was sexy, funny, and actually pretty interesting for such a short story. Ruby was an every-day woman that dreamed of traveling to other planets and when her dream became true it was definitely not the way she had wished it was going to be. Now this is an erotica more than a romance so if you’re going to read it don’t think there are going to be many tender moments and be prepared to read about a woman ready to live every moment as if it was her last (because it very well could be), threesomes, sex-crazed aliens, and insanely hot humans.

My 3-star rate is because I think stories that deal with rape and violence towards sex slaves have to be set up in a very specific way otherwise those issues may look as trivialized and it may look as if they are not being taken seriously and to me that was a problem in this story.

Trigger Warning: Imagination
Trigger Warning: Short Fictions and Discoveries - Neil Gaiman

 

 

Listening to Neil Gaiman is such a lovely thing, I realized I would be willing to listen to him reading phone books or grocery lists.  But it's even better to hear him reading his stories.  In his introduction, he discusses trigger warnings--from their start on the internet to their being attached to works of literature and art.  He shares that after wondering if trigger warnings would ever be attached to his own work, he decided to be the first to do it.  Proceed with caution if you are triggered by a wonderful, wide-ranging imagination.

Hunt the Dawn (Fatal Dreams #2) by Abbie Roads
Hunt the Dawn (Fatal Dreams Book 2) - Abbie Roads

This is the second installment of the Fatal Dreams series but can definitely be read as a standalone because I haven’t read the first one and never felt lost.
I feel like that the first thing I need to say is that this book should come with the words ***TRIGGER WARNING***, and in big bold, capital letters, if not on the blurb then at the beginning of the book at the very least. Please be aware that there are scenes with emotional, physical, and sexual abuse and they are extremely descriptive.

To me it was not so much a romantic suspense but rather a thriller with paranormal and romantic undertones. I liked the plot but overall I didn’t love it as much as others did. There were a some things that didn’t click with me especially when it came to Evanee and the main villain.
The beginning of the story provided a nice background to both main characters, however, and this might just have been that the author is new to me, the prose sounded a bit trite and repetitive. Without going too much into spoilery ground, I’m going to say that when Lathan and Evanee meet, she does the exact opposite of what I think any sane person would do. Her actions were later explained in the book but when I read it they sounded so reckless that I had to roll my eyes. I also feel the story focused too much on her past history and that left Lathan’s feeling incomplete. Finally, towards the end when she’s told someone she's come to trust has done terrible things (and was about to commit some more) she still wanted to remain friends with that person. Uhm, huh? That felt as if the author wanted to reassert what a loving and innocent person she still was in spite of the rough life she’d lived but I thought that was utterly unnecessary.

I don't know, perhaps if there would have been just one thing to focus on but there were just too many things to look at. What with the psycho, the sociopath, the survivor, the rapist, the toxic family, the hero with the hearing disability and "superpowers", the crazy-a$$ dreams... Honestly, this book had me ranting plenty of times but when I wasn’t ranting I kind of liked it. I specially liked the friendship between Lathan and his friend Gill. I’m still debating whether I want to continue reading the series if more books come out but since I already have the first one I will at least read that one.
