Review: Hunger Makes the Wolf
Hunger Makes the Wolf - Alex Wells

Is Dapperpunk a thing? Can it be a thing? I feel like this dapper AF badass fireball of a heroine could define the genre if it isn't already one.

 

If I have to stick to actual genres, this is a blend of space opera and western. Motorcycles instead of horses. And, as expected, the future is not evenly distributed. And the people under the boots of the intergalactic corporation are tired of taking shit. Deserts or mines, why not both.

 

Great adventure. Great characters. Great pacing, meshing never-to-long snappy dialog with action. This is the director's cut of the summer blockbuster movie I've always wanted.

 

Stand alone, but with hooks for direct sequels and other stories in the same universe. I'm not sure if reading it is the one thing keeping me sane with this endless cold, or the reason I'm not better yet as I read it instead of sleeping.

 

If you're looking for a fun adventure where you can root for the underdog, check this out.

COMMUNICATION SKILLS by Minxie Wells
Communication Skills - Minxie Wells
 

Kira, a tournament playing Scrabble player, meets her match in Grahame. As a Dom he challenges her to let go and become the sub she was meant to be.

 

An interesting story that uses Scrabble to communicate between the partners. Grahame is a jerk. He expects Kira to know instinctively what he wants but he never talks with her about what he wants. He is a his way or the highway guy. It's a good thing I was not Kira. I would have walked away. She persevered and figured out what he wanted through Scrabble. Amazing! This is not a story to use as a guideline for how to begin a BDSM tryst except for what not to do.

Because of the shortness of this work, the time in the playroom is intense. The storytelling is good. Ms. Wells does well to put the reader into Kira's shoes. I could feel Kira's anger, fear, frustration, and desire. I will read her again.

Review: The Liar (#1) by Jennifer Wells
The Liar - Jennifer Wells

Published by: Aria (6 October 2016)

 

ISBN: 978-1786691071

 

Rating: 5*

 

Synopsis:

It's 1935 and housewife Emma glimpses a face in a crowd – a little girl with a very unique birthmark. Transfixed by the sight of a stranger; Emma becomes convinced that the girl is her long-lost daughter taken from her at birth. There is only one problem: Emma's daughter is dead. So who is the stranger? The Liar follows Emma's journey as she tries to find out what really happened to her daughter - a journey that unearths secrets from the past and ends in obsession. . .

 

Review:

I'm so pleased I got the opportunity to meet the author and find out about this book, because if I'd seen it in a book shop I'd probably have walked straight past; it just doesn't look like the sort of book I'd usually enjoy. I'm not into historical or family saga or even romance particularly, which is where you'd find The Liar on Amazon. The back cover blurb hinted at the mystery inside and piqued my interest enough for me to buy a copy there and then. I think it would work really well if it was re-branded...I'd describe it as a psychological thriller, and a pretty damn good one at that! 

 

This is a tale told from two perspectives - Emma's and Ruby's, the little girl who resembles Emma's daughter. The author's clever use of vocabulary and writing style drew me in from the outset and made the environment come alive. I really felt as though I was there beside Emma as  tried to find out what had happened to her daughter.

 

The complex characters are well written, and the relationships sensitively conveyed. I pretty much read this in one sitting, I just couldn't put it down! Just when i thought i had figured out what was going to happen next, along came another twist. What happened at the end is truly shocking! For a first novel, this is fantastic and I cannot recommend it enough! Jennifer Wells is one to watch!

Save me
The Attraction of Adeline - Lisa Wells

Adeline is asked by her best friends brother, to play a fake engaged couple.  He needs to impress his boss.  His boss refuses to give him a partnership if he does not have a better half.

 

Jack is seriously attracted to Adeline.  He knows he shouldn't be.  She has agreed to play a part.  He knows how dangerous it is to want more from someone who cannot give it to him.

 

This book was so much fun!  It was funny, sad, sweet, & hot.  The characters seriously made me laugh.  This author always makes me laugh.  This book was a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

 

 

***This early copy was given to me by Netgalley and its publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Guy and Jamie's story

I have to start off by saying this is a new author for us and it was a first enjoyable read for us.I normally don't read this kind of gene so it was nice to mix things up a bit and try something new and we are so glad we gave this author a try.We will be looking forward to this authors new releases as the come out.

I loved the plot it was something you don't normally read about strangers doing good deeds and paying it forward so I am glad that was part of what brought this couple together .I really loved this couple they were so cute together.The story also touched on what couples and families encounter as well as friends when those not accepting of the lifestyle one chooses to live.I loved how Guy handled his own family none accepting ways.I really felt horrible for him at the way his ex wife and son dealt with his current lifestyle yet ,it never seem to get him down. Guy seem to take it in stride instead.I loved the fact that this wasn't the kind of story about instant chemistry and acting on it.This story was more about a straight man discovering he is attracted to his room mate and what to do about the feeling he is having.Guy was gay but never once forced his lifestyle on his room mate even though he new from their very first meeting that he was attracted to Jamie.I loved how Guy never forced Jamie to feel the same way and accepted that he was straight .As a reader we felt the struggles that Jamie was having at fighting his attraction he had toward Guy.My heart went out to him as he struggled to deal and find himself and come to grippes whether it was an attraction to all men or just Guy.I feel in this case it was more about finding your on true mate and not whether your gay,straight, or bisexual it was about trusting your hearts chosen choice.


I always pick a favorite character in a story and mine is going to be Jamie.I picked
Jamie as he was just so sweet all the time and I liked how protective he was toward Guy's happiness only wanting the best for him .I liked that he was focused and driven.I loved how he was willing to face and explore the feelings he was having toward Guy even though he had reservations about his own sexual identity.I loved how this couple gradually let things evolved and never once forced each other to feel things other than what they we feeling .I loved how Jamie was willing to explore what could be with Guy instead of letting his own fears get the best of him.I loved how this couple simply fell in love and decided that each of them is what the other needed in order to be truly happy.

I loved the story all around.I really enjoyed Guy as well I thought he was super sweet also had an amazing vibrant personality.I loved how he was willing to trust his heart to another after losing the life of his life.I loved the things this couple did to get to know one another .I loved this couple interactions with their friends they added humor to the story and gave us more than a few chuckles.I really enjoyed that Guy and Jamie had a sense of humor because I believe that it was the way this couple got over the awkwardness when they were with friends or alone.It helped Jamie feel more comfortable with the feelings he was experiencing and the decisions he need to make for himself.

This was overall quite an endearing love story that touch my heart as I loved this couple and wished for a happy ending for them.This story was a page turner for me that had me finishing this story and one sitting as you could not put it down.I loved how the author did an amazing job and creating a story that did not focus on being gay or straight and more on a couple that simply happened to fall in love with each other that happen to be the same sex.This couples sexual chemistry and their sexual encounters definitely burned up the sheets .That added element of erotica and their sexual teasing made their sexual encounters even hotter !I loved as a reader that I was able to connect with the main characters and I did just that.I could not get enough of them.

I recommended read to all.I thought that the author did a amazing job with this story that made you actually feel things for this couple as well as their struggles.

ARC given to us for and honest read and we are giving it 5 stars .I absolutely love it and its characters.
 
 
5 star read from us !

K.C. Wells started writing in 2012, although the idea of writing a novel had been in her head since she was a child. But after reading that first gay romance in 2009, she was hooked.
She now writes full time, and the line of men in her head, clamouring to tell their story, is getting longer and longer. If the frequent visits by plot bunnies are anything to go by, that’s not about to change anytime soon.

K.C. loves to hear from readers.
