Color Me In
Color Me In (Last Chance Book 2) - Riley Hart

“I can’t promise I’ll be perfect, that I won’t stumble. I’m still getting comfortable in my skin, but… all I know is, being with you… it feels right. You feel right. It’s like everything was black and white and now I’m seeing in color. Like I was just an outline and you somehow colored me in.”

 

I have to say I thought about the movie Pleasantville a few times.  

 

 

This was beautiful and quite possibly the most sensual book I have ever read.  Ryan’s discovery and exploration into his sexuality was something I had never seen developed before and Riley just did an unbelievable job here.  And Caleb was just the perfect balance for him…an absolutely beautiful and giving partner.

 

I made the decision to reread "Depth of Field" before starting this book, and I am so glad I did.  Shane and Van played a pretty big part in this story, definitely more than a glimpse for sure.  I once again found myself gravitated to Van, his story and his character.  So much love for him.

 

This book honestly had very little angst.  The passionate build was just amazingly developed between these two and the background for Ryan quite heartbreaking. 

 

I will say that I wish we had gotten more of Caleb’s background.  I felt his time away from Last Chance was underdeveloped and I desperately wanted more. I also wish we could have gotten a bit more of how Ryan’s father and Ex-wife’s relationship with them developed further.

 

But overall, this was another winner by Riley Hart.  I am very curious if we will visit Last Chance again in the future as any opportunity to visit these men would be well received by me.

 

*Highly Recommended*

Depth of Field
Depth of Field (Last Chance Book 1) - Riley Hart

Well I realized once I had finished my reread that I had never written a review. And that is rather irritating considering this landed in my Best of 2017 list.  Bottom line…it’s wonderful and extremely sexy.

 

I think originally I indicated that this is likely my second favorite of Riley’s after “Broken Pieces”. And even after a reread, that holds true.  I adored this couple, their history and their ability to put the past aside and see the person standing before them today.  Van is filled with such regret that at times it is quite painful to hear and yet at the same time the past is equally painful for Shane. 

 

“You think I haven’t regretted that every goddamn day of my life since then? That I haven’t hated myself for it? That I haven’t thought of a million ways I could try to make it up to you? Because I have, and no, I know that doesn’t make it better. I know what I did, Shane. I live with it every fucking day of my life, the same way I’m sure you do. No matter how much we try to forget our pasts, they’re always fucking there.”

 

It definitely takes a special man to come to see Van as something different.  Shane was nurturing, devoted and strong and yet he is trapped. His relationship with his mother is quite beautiful and yet equally heartbreaking.  It is not until Van that Shane can truly be free in every sense of the word.

 

The photography aspects of this are what truly shined for me.  Van drawing Shane out little by little to see what he sees.  The truth, the passion, the man.  It is beautiful.

Finders Keepers
Finders Keepers - N.R. Walker

I mean seriously. If looking at this cover does not make you smile with glee then move on…this book is not for you.  And grow a heart why don’t you.

 

From the moment I saw this cover I was in love.  And to see NR Walker’s name on the cover only solidified my desire to read this book.  Like all of Walker’s books, this one is full of heart.  I went in expecting a sweet loving story and that is exactly what I received.  This was simply wonderful.

 

Griffin and Dane

 

For me, pets and honestly kids in romances can, at times, be annoying.  They can pull you away from a moment, cock block that perfect scene or simply draw you away from the relationship that is being developed.  But this sweet dog did none of that.  If anything…he did the exact opposite.  Wicket was magnificent.  I loved this dog to pieces.  He was so much a part of this couple, their relationship and their story…a true secondary character all on his own.  I mean Wicket I swear had lines and full on adorable conversations with these men.  *melts*

 

This story just brought a smile to my face from start to finish. A story with no angst but still rich in depth and strongly developed characters.  And I would be remiss if I did not mention Bernice.  My heavens…this lady was everything. I adored her from her first moment on page.  The lines this woman had…her sass, he glassy eyed wit…I am grinning like a fool and I did not even eat a brownie.  ;)

 

So if you are in need of a perfect feel good read…look no further.  I mean seriously…if you have not bought it for the cover alone I am not sure what to say.

He could never leave, and Van would never want to stay.

But Christ, his mom was there. In his house and she was laughing and dancing and…happy. Her eyes glowed from it. It was like air to his lungs. Like for a little while, he could breathe easily. “Did you save me a dance, Ma?” he asked and her smile grew.

“Always.”

 

Gaaahhh
