On Davis Row
On Davis Row - NR Walker

You get through life trying to be invisible. You think no one’ll notice you don’ read or write too well if you just hide in th’ background. Disappear. You think if they don’ notice you, they won’t ever know. Well guess what?” He slid his hand up to my neck and ran his thumb over my jaw. I couldn’t breathe. “I see you, Clinton Davis. I see you.”

 

And see him he did.

 

NR Walker has once again created such a touching and beautifully developed couple in CJ and Noah and a story that is so unique and quintessential Walker. My goodness, she even brought the act of hugging to all new heights.

 

My eyes burned with tears and I had to suck back a breath. I could feel myself about to cry and I forced myself to stop. But then he slid his hand around my neck and pulled me against him. In that safe and warm place I’d only ever known with him.
A hug. A simple fucking hug. His warm arms, gentle and kind touch, that I could feel sewing up the gaping holes in my heart, in my soul.
It was just a hug, but it wasn’t. It was so much more.
It was human touch. It was kindness and understanding. It was reassuring and soul-mending.
I clung to him, like a fucking kid. Like if I let go, I’d fall apart. And he held me, just held me without question, without judgement.

 

 

This is by no means a sex filled book. But the acts of love and commitment are far from absent. This relationship is just beautiful and the compassionate nature of Noah and the way Walker explores the lives and perceptions of those on Davis Row are quite compelling. I'd be lying if I said I never had these same perceptions about someone. Terribly accurate honestly and just sad when you fail to see things from a completely different perspective. I mean...

 

 

Yes, I thought of this often. It took someone with the wisdom of Atticus to see the truth that was Clinton and that person was Noah. This story was so well developed and not rushed at all. I loved Noah's "rule" and how this only heightened the sexual tension between them. Phew.

 

And I absolutely loved the epilogue here. It was so them.

 

He was everything I never knew I needed. He was everything I wanted, longed for, dreamed of, and never thought I could have.

 

Definitely another of my favorites for 2017 and one I look forward to revisiting time and time again.

Our Gentle Sin
Our Gentle Sin: A Taboo M/M Romance - Lyra Evans

So this was not your typical Taboo read.  This was just an absolutely beautiful story about two brothers, alone and learning to cope in a world without their parents.  This is not over erotic but a slow discovery of a love between brothers.  Yeah, I get this is not something everyone enjoys but it is a taboo that I love...and this one in particular is by far the best I have read.

 

I was worried that the outcome of what occured on Halloween would cause me to be a little irritated, but I have to say this played out even better than I expected.  And the further storylines surrounding Levi I did not anticipate at all. 

 

 

The photography aspects of this story worked beautifully and captured what no doubt many twin lovers like me want to see but perhaps is not always captured on film.  Like with Haydem and Raul Guerra Liranza (https://www.instagram.com/official_guerratwins/?hl=en), these brothers show their lives and their relationship through images. Good heavens, this page is just beautiful.  As in the story, the photographs begin to capture a rawness.  It is Kane, who's vulnerability and raw emotions are captured to move his audience in a way that creates emotion.  That is the true beauty of art and I felt it was captured amazingly well here.

 

 

 

The three photos were arranged as I had instructed, with the two shorter ones hanging to either side of the longer central one, shaping a kind of black and white arrowhead pointing to the ground. To the left was a close-up of Levi and I, arms framing each other’s head as we stared into each other’s eyes. The central one was a full-body shot, with me standing like some kind of Greek god, with Levi on his knees, staring up at me with worshiping eyes. Only the look in my eyes was just as full of worship, just as brimming with adoration. The line of the photo drew down, along my arm and hand, reaching for his face, caressing it, as his hands drew the eye upward to my chest, where he pressed his palms. The third photo was another close-up. The two of us intertwine in one another, my eyes half-lidded and Levi’s gaze trained on my mouth where he held up a hand, his fingers playing on my lips, drawing them open. He looked as though he was about to kiss me, as though I was about to devour him, which wasn’t far from the truth.

 

As I said, this type of romance is not for everyone but it completely works for me. There is truly no one in the world with a closer connection than I feel twins have.  Taboo or not, this is raw and beautiful.  **Highly Recommended**

 

This book has been banned by Amazon...unbelievable.  But you can find it at Smashwords... https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/758265

Dirty Mind
Dirty Mind - Roe Horvat

I have to say, I was not expecting this AT ALL!

Still in such awe over this story and this beautiful writing style. I am not sure if it was the cover or the blurb but this is not at all what I expected to get when I started this book. This was just amazing.

As I was when I finished "The Layover", I am just in a daze and unable to put into words properly my feelings on this book. It is a must read.

I am so anxious for the next story in this "series" and hear it will be full of angst. Bring it Roe.

Soul Searching
Soul Searching - AJ Rose

 

Wow...I am not sure I expected this level of paranormal and ultimate scare factor in this book.  While the sex was light, the relationship development and overall paranormal activities depicted here were not.  This was pretty damn awesome.

 

“A wraith is not a demon, but you must understand, they are dangerous. Wraiths were once human, but their anger has grown to rage, and in the afterlife, they become something else, something less than human. They are consumed by negativity. They feed on it, crave it, and internalise it to use it for their own ends. Most wraiths were wronged in life in some way, and they seek revenge. Usually they are victims of violence, and their sense of injustice tethers them to this world after they’ve passed on. They cannot continue their spiritual journey, so they remain, becoming something other in their misery."

 

This bastard is something else.

 

Overall just the perfect Halloween read, or really anytime you need the hairs on your arm to stand on end.  

 

**Highly Recommended**

Living Out Loud
Living Out Loud - Nyrae Dawn,Christina Lee

I wish I had it in me to write a review but my heart just is not in it.

 

Bottom line is that this was just amazing. I loved every single moment and this is easily one of my favorite books of the year.  So I am just posting beautiful pictures and hope the world gets on board with love and not hate.  I'm tired.
