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.

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.

short and so deliciously sweet!
The Botanist: Short Story - Claire Smith,Hot Tree Editing,Dahlia Donovan
I was gifted my copy of this book direct from the author, that I write a review was not required. This is book 2.5 in the Sin Bin series, but you don't need to have read book one, The Wanderer, and book two, The Caretaker, to follow this one. BUT! You should. Not least of which they are both 5 star reads, but because I said SO!! US Navy Seal Wyatt is sent on a mission jointly with the Royal Marines and rescues Aled, a botanist caught in the cross fire of a drug smuggling ring, and has been tortured. Wyatt finds himself at odds with his career and his feelings for the young man. Aled relishes the calls and texts from Wyatt, but are his feelings real, or just a PTSD symptom?? I LURVE this one!! Its oh so deliciously; short and sweet, and a huge helping of warm and fuzzies! Ms Donovan does short and sweet so well! Oh, don't get me wrong, the longer books are great and fab and have that cute/fuzzies feeling but the short ones seem to carry it so much more! What I particularly liked about this book, is what's NOT here, it's what is missing. It is almost clean. Bar one scene at the end, there is no sex! And if you follow my reviews, you'll know I do prefer my books, male/male ones especially, on the more explicit side. So, for me to say that I really REALLY loved it, well, says something! AND OH!!!! I just remembered! I said the exact same thing in Ms Donovan's very FIRST book, Ivy! Full circle, we've come full circle. Some of the other guys in the series are mentioned, and we meet some new ones. Hamish, especially, he is the lead Royal Marine and has his story next, book 3, The Royal Marine. Short and sweet, too stinking cute AND warm and fuzzies, cos let me tell ya, they are not the same thing! 5 full stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

warm and fuzzies, people, warm and fuzzies!
Without a Compass - Helen Juliet Without a Compass - Helen Juliet
I was gifted my copy of this book direct from the author, that I write a review was not required. Riley goes with his family camping. Riley HATES camping, but it's his father's 50th birthday and he hasn't been for a few years. He just packs everything but the kitchen sink to take along with him. Kai is Riley's older brother's best friend, and had been Riley's crush many years ago. But Kai is straight, and totally out of Riley's reach, right?? Warm and fuzzies, too stinking cute and a delicious book if ever there was one! Kai has, up to now, only been with girls. But Riley is all grown up now, and Kai begins to have feelings, thoughts, that maybe he isn't as straight as he thought. A game of truth or dare clears Kai's head and he just runs with it. What will be, will be. I am ETERNALLY thankful that Ms Juliet wrote this book from both guys point of view! I was a little concerned that it might not, and I would have wrote some scathing comment but it is SOOOOOOOOOOO not needed! With Kai going much against his nature, he needed his say. Because we needed to know what was going through his head, and we get it! We get his reaction to that kiss, his feelings about what some of the others did to Riley years ago, his feelings of overwhelming protectiveness to Riley when he realises Riley is hurt. We get it all!! Its not overly explicit, but this book didn't need to be. There is no real breakup, no major drama to deal with, bar a pair of twins who really just need to grow the hell up. Its full of emotion though! Riley's trying to keep his distance from Kai, and failing miserably. Kai's ever growing attraction to Riley and his fight to stop, then run with, it. This is the second book of Ms Juliet's I've read, that too, was a five star read. Keep them coming, please!! 5 stars. **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

Reading progress update: I've read 75%.
In the Middle of Somewhere - Roan Parrish

I love this book but it pales in comparison to the others.  The author took on much deeper relationships and internal demons with the next books that for me excel in many ways.

 

*sigh*

 

...plus Spencer just has to studder as Colin for my knees to melt.
