Gemini Keeps Capricorn (Signs of Love #3) [Wesley & Lloyd] by Anyta Sunday

This book was IMPOSSIBLE for me to read. It MIGHT get better but I just don't care and It's really unlike me to throw a book after just 9%, especially by an author I ADORE and enjoyed SO many of her books but I simply CAN'T and WON'T continue.

Nearing the end of the 2nd (!) chapter I feel totally and absolutely LOST. I swear I have NO idea what's going on.. and reading a few reviews (which I don't usually do while I'm still reading a book) I see some people had the same issue. The feeling is like you're starting the book somewhere in the middle. WHO are all of those characters? WHAT or WHY are the relationships between them. HOW do the MCs know each other and WHY do they have this strange relationship which isn't even a friendship. Are they friends? Maybe not really? Then why does Wesley keeps constantly harassing Lloyd?

Superfan (Brooklyn Bruisers #6) [Silas & Delilah] by Sarina Bowen

This book was THE sweetest thing! I LOVED Silas, especially when Delilah is concerned, their story was so endearing! You'd maybe expect an athlete to be more "macho" but Silas couldn't be further from that, he is caring, sensitive and romantic. Funny how difficult it was for Delilah - a song-writer and singer to express herself like he seemed to do effortlessly. I really enjoyed how thoughtful he was towards her, not truly pressuring her into anything. Letting her get used to ideas, to himself, and often giving her the opportunity to lead when she so needed it. He called it "Zero ego", I kinda like that :)

I feel like the paragraph above is mostly what anyone should need to go ahead and grab this book.. and yet there is much more to say about Silas and Delilah, about how they met, missing opportunities but also making new ones..

Scorpio Loops Virgo (Signs of Love #2.5) [Percy & Callaghan] by Anyta Sunday

This sort novella is actually the Epilogue to the previous novel. ("Scorpio Hates Virgo") I'm not sure why it's offered as a separate novella (downloadable through Anyta's website) as this one is also included in the Kindle Edition of the full novel. Anyhow it's a nice sweet ending to the story, bringing us Percy and Callaghan as formed couple looking at a bright future together.

Scorpio Hates Virgo (Signs of Love #2) [Percy & Callaghan] by Anyta Sunday

This story was as sweet as the previous one. Percy and Callaghan are playing "nemesis" but really, under the surface they have been friends ever since they were teens. Spending time together while Percy is adamant about selling his late aunt's house (the house right in front of the Glover family) makes Percy realize not only how much he is not alone in the world but also where home is.

Percy Freedman spend his teens living with his aunt. His family didn't accept him (and his sexuality) so Abby was his whole world. When she died Percy was crushed. Though he was staying at her house while trying to make it more "sell-able" the memories hurt too much to even consider staying long term and that's without mentioning his crash on Callaghan Glover makes things even more complicated. In his heart he knew for YEARS how much he wanted Callaghan, but he didn't think they had ANY chance considering Callaghan is straight (or is he? ;)). I actually really appreciated Anyta for the way Callaghan explained his sexuality and how he saw Percy. It made so much sense!

Leo Tops Aries (Signs of Love #1.5) [Theo & Jamie] by Anyta Sunday [Post #1,000!]

SWEETNESS! I simply ADORE Theo and Jamie. They are THE cutest together. This short novella is a free bonus read (available in Anyta's blog - link bellow through the blue button). Theo and Jamie have been together for months now and naturally the one thing NOT to change is their endearing banter this time also coupled with a bet..

Leo Loves Aries (Signs of Love #1) [Theo & Jamie] by Anyta Sunday

This book was simply AWESOME! I really enjoyed it. Lately I've been SO into slow burn romance, and I gotta say at times, it's even better when it's the GFY turf. Though I'm not into the whole Horoscope thing it was mostly cute the way it entwined with the plot. It didn't feel forced, just a way of incorporating a bit of "magic" (or rather "magic signs") without actually being "fantastical".

Theo and Leone Wallace are twins, living together in an apartment going through College. They have two things on their mind at the moment, first is finding a roommate for the third bedroom in the house and the second is finding a date for their exs' wedding and I mean it in the plural.. Somehow Leone's boyfriend and Theo's girlfriend managed to fall in love with each other and out of love with Theo and Leone.. they both didn't take it lightly but they are determined to put what happened to the both of them behind - finding a date for each other seems like a great mission to put their minds into.

Kiss Me Again by Garrett Leigh

This book was SO beautiful and raw and angsty in the best possible way. I LOVED both Ludo and Aidan and seeing them fall in love, form a family together was heart breakingly beautiful (sorry for the repetitive word ;)). While this book is an absolute stand alone, we get the littlest mention of Angelo, the MC from "Dream", just so you know.

It's been a while since I last wrote a full review or READ a whole book. When I ask myself WHY I read, the answer is quite obvious because of THIS. This is what makes me happy even if it sounds a bit f*ed up as these two went through A LOT in this book and most not that easy to deal with.. But anyhow, I"m trying to say, I read to find optimism in life even though it's fictional, I read to enjoy this endless emotion and love we rarely see (or feel) in real life. I read for the wonderful journey the characters, and we, as readers, go through all together to come in the end with a feeling of completion, of hope and love. A sort of high that makes the whole hurtful journey worth it and this one is SO worth it.

Shifting Gears (Crossroads #2) [Rod & Landon] by Riley Hart

Truthfully I can't explain it. I just didn't connect to either MC. I came out blank considering what my problem IS really. But I don't know. Both Rod and Landon are likable though neither is perfect (a good sign), each has his own sad story though there is still more to be revealed and especially to one another where I stopped (~32% in). I just didn't really care. I found myself struggling to read and mostly struggling to GET BACK to reading. I think I haven't read for more than a week just not feeling like it AT ALL. That's quite strange for me, if it happens usually it's BETWEEN books not while reading one.

We've met Rod Nelson before, he worked at a sex shop Nick and Bryce visited. They had a friendly conversation but turns out they somehow became friends (as we met both Nick and Bryce in this one). Landon Harrison is not really new in town, he grew up here, but he didn't see himself returning. But his sister getting married is reason enough.. Through Rod, whom he meets at Rod's new sex shop, he gets a job as a mechanic in Bryce's place and soon they strike a friendship neither is TRULY okay with. They both want to have sex with one another, but Landon puts all the breaks, he would rather have the friendship and mixing it up with sex, no mater how much he is attracted to Rod (and vice versa), seem like a bad idea in his book..
