Bonfires (Bonfires, #1) by Amy Lane

PERFECTION! This one was truly a treat. I can't remember when or even if I've read a book like this one. It's not just the fact our two MCs are in the late 40s, but also the role of both their families and lets not forget the society around them. This book, for me, was in one word - Hope. Hope that THIS could happen, that even in the darkest times, when horrible things happen, there are truly wonderful amazing people who not only "do their job", they truly care, they make a difference and make a stand for what is right and for everyone who deserves happiness and forgiveness.

Tried & True (THIRDS #10) [Dex & Sloane] by Charlie Cochet

As usual, a great read. I would have been crashed if this was actually the last I heard of Dex and Sloane but lucky for us, their story will continue in the new spin off series - TIN. CAN'T WAIT! There is something so terribly beautiful about this series, it combines action, with huge beasts (our Therians or usually called - shape-shifters) but also high-tech and fire arms with a larger than life romance you swoon over. It's no wonder THIRDS is my absolute favorite PNR/UF series. It simply has EVERYTHING I could wish for.

Kairos by Mary Calmes

Though the idea behind this story was truly endearing it also felt a bit too OTT and kitschy. Things moved a bit too quickly for me, though the love DID make sense since Kade and Joe have been best friends, partners and "roommates" for two years before their relationship progressed to a full blown romantic one. 

The story is told from Joe Cohen's POV. He has been living in Chicago for almost 3 years, being estranged from his family though it takes quite a long time fore us to learn the true reason for that. For me it was one of the things that felt "over-the-top". I don't want to write more not to spoiler, I'll just say that Joe ran away as far from California which is where he found Kade Bosa.

What Can Be by Mary Calmes

This was SUCH a nice surprise. I'm not even sure why I'm surprised.. maybe because I didn't expect this one to be so deep and emotional in a little bit more than 100 pages but Mary has a gift in writing and especially with novellas so this one was surely a holiday treat just be prepared for heart ache along with the sweetness. 

Jacob Somerville was born Eli Hartline. When he was 15 years old he left his father and two older brothers for a summer vocation with his mother. 3 months turned into much more and Eli found himself not only separated from his family but changing his identity. It's been years, 13 years to be exact and Jacob feels he isn't sure of his place again. He has a loving boyfriend in Chicago one he has left behind and went on a journey to no where starting with his family. Needing to finally see them and maybe find the courage to explain where he was the past 13 years and mostly - why!

Junkyard Heart (Porthkennack #7) [Jas & Kim] by Garrett Leigh

I'm not exactly sure why but I had a hard time connecting with Jas, our sole POV. I think I needed to know more about him to understand WHY he is the way he is. He has such a loving family and yet since he mostly didn't grow up with them he feels a bit disconnected from them and doesn't accept a lot help from them though he knows they WILL be there for him, especially his step mom. 

Jas Manning recently returned to Porthkennack, a small town he mostly spent his summers in. Now he is here for good after his boyfriend betrayed him horribly and left him a broken shell. He works a lot from his home or generally solitary on graphics and photography. It's something else that keeps him not only from his family who wants to connect with him, but from people in general. But when he meets Kim something changes inside of him and he finds himself craving his company while not being sure it's a good idea AT ALL.

Countdown to Midnight (The Story Sisters #2.5) [Elizabeth & Merit ; Jane & Amity] by Katy Regnery

This was short and sweet, very fitting to the holiday season. When Katy announced that she is going to stop writing the Blueberry Lane Series, I was saddened. I understood why she did it, and couldn't be more respectful of her wishes, this isn't something  she does as a hobby, it's her job. So when I heard she is STILL going to release this novella to at least give as a sort of closure for Elizabeth and Jane Story I was excited. I wanted to get to know these two, as both were mentioned enough in the previous installments and yet I felt I don't know anything important about them.

Shear Heaven (A Modern Fairytale #6) [Bella & Nico] by Katy Regnery

Truly an endearing story. Every page, ever passage in this one feels like the fairytale that it is. I admit I don't think I've ever read or seen the story of Rapunzel but really it makes no difference, I FELT our little princes locked in a tower even if it was a grand hotel and even though she technically wasn't unable to step foot outside of it. She was still trapped. My heart broke for her, for the miserable life she had to live with the sad circumstances that led to it. 

Bella Capelli have been working for her godmother for the past few years, ever since her parents died in a car accident. Her godmother and her mother used to be best friends in high school but the years apart and the distance from the small town in Switzerland the grew up in to New York city where her godmother have  been building her salon empire shows us a woman who is determined to work Bella to the ground, using her as much as she can and practically enslaving her to her job and herself.

Last Call (Heartsville, #1) [Quinn, Gray & Emery] by Felice Stevens & Christina Lee

I"m not sure what exactly I was expecting but it wasn't OMG SWEETNESS! I guess Menage comes with a prejudice (though I've read a few which I really enjoyed and weren't focused on sex..). This story is all about tenderness, love and companionship, in a way everything I expect and want to read in a romance novel only not in a couple, in three beautiful, sweet guys who deserve so much more than the hands they were dealt growing up. 

Quinn Monahan and Grayson Page are best friends. They have been for years since they were teenagers, each struggling with his own issues. Gray coming from a poor dysfunctioning family and Quinn from a very privileged yet cold and uncaring family. They have been managing for a few years now their own bar called "Last Call" in the small town of Heartsville. Things are going wonderfully. They get along great, as usual, living together yet apart in the apartment above the bar, maintaining their close yet platonic relationship.

Man Hands (Man Hands #1) by Sarina Bowen & Tanya Eby

Whenever there's a new book by Sarina I get overly excited. It doesn't matter what the book is about, mostly because I don't read any snippets or the synopsis before I start the book - why bother? With this one it was the same even if it's co-written (with an author I haven't read before) but as I started reading this book I've realized it's A LOT different than what I'm used to reading by her. 

You know the phrase - "It's not you, it's me"? It's exactly how I would describe my feelings towards this book. This is not what I expected and mostly it's a genre I very rarely enjoy. If I had to describe this book in less than a sentence I'd call it - 'Young Adult with mature content'. I have very little to no patience for "kids" in my books, it doesn't matter if they are the MCs or if they're literal kids who take a lot of page space. I want mature characters or at the least what we call now "New Adult". I just find I can't relate to younger characters. Their life choices and the way they react to everything around them is truly exhausting to me.

December 2017 Reading List

Last month have been INCREDIBLE, on the beginning of November I went to the World Dog Show in Leipzig Germany and not only was it an amazing experience I also witnessed something that doesn't happen often.. A Great Dane won the Best In Show out of 25,000 dogs! I can't describe how it made me feel and how excited and proud I was and actually still am! 

The month continued with too many things on my schedule and actually I'm not sure this month would be any different. It's the ending of the year and too many things need my attention and yet I DO hope I'll have time to read because that's exactly the thing that grounds me and helps me relax and "defrag" as I like to call it.

This month there are SO MANY NEW RELEASES! First there's a release from the ending of last month I haven't gotten around to - 
the new and final novel in the THIRDS series by Charlie Cochet which is my absolute favorite PNR/UF series (the only reason I'm not upset about it is the TIN spinoff is coming right after!). There's a new funny contemporary by Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby (I don't know her but I'll be happy to :)). Katy Regnery have TWO short novellas, though one was previously released in an Anthology. Amy Lane has a new Contemporary novel and one which was recently released and haven't gotten around to it. There's also a new in the Porthkennack by Garrett Leigh who is always a treat to read. Last but not least Christina Lee and Felice Stevens have a sneek new MMM novel together! I'm truly interested to see how this one works out. 

I feel like a kid in a candy store! Not sure how I'm going to pick and chose which I start reading first! There was so much more I wanted to read but I'll have to settle for "just' these

That's a lot, mostly overwhelming with the new releases, I hope THESE I'll actually get to..

A sweet short read. Clarey Calhoun is taking a 36 hours bus from the college she has being going to back home to her best friends' wedding. A she steps on the bus she realizes the only free sit is near the bride's brother who is also her ex's brother, the one who cheated on her.

Goodnight My Angel (Angel Enterprises #2) by Sue Brown

I really enjoyed this one though I was a bit disappointed that the story finished with a cliff hanger concerning the suspense part of the story. Unlike the previous one, this one was mainly told from Cal's POV which was GREAT. I felt I needed to get to know him better since in the previous one he felt quite mysterious. There is still A LOT for us to discover (about his past) but I actually really liked how we got to know both Cal and Josh a little at a time as their relationship builds up around the suspense. If you haven't read the first one please don't continue reading this review (to prevent reading of spoilers) or rather, go ahead and grab the first one - it's AMAZING.

Morning My Angel (Angel Enterprises #1) by Sue Brown

It's been a while since I've read such a fun and witty Romantic Suspense novel. I LOVED this one. I started it on Saturday, truthfully I was too tired to concentrate on starting a new book, so when I resumed on Tuesday I kept reading until I finished, ignoring the fact my eyes are stinging and there seems to be a faint sound of birds from outside, yeah, it was a little after 4 a.m.! I couldn't and wouldn't put this book down and Tuesday was a bit bleary because of it..

By Tomorrow (A Bite-Sized Romance, #1) [Claire & Jamie] by Katy Regnery

This was the sweetest thing! Claire Higgins and Jamie MacAllister work together in an IT department, Jamie coming from Edinburgh to help out the company with his skills. As time goes by the two of them more than connect. Jamie is all Claire can think of and Jamie is the same only he found himself engaged to be married TOMORROW.

Sleeping 'til Sunrise (Mangrove Stories, #5) [Essien & Roark] by Mary Calmes

While I loved the previous installments in the series, this one felt a bit rushed and even in a way "unfinished". It was fun getting almost all the characters from the previous installments in some capacity I just wanted to see more relationship buildup from Essien and Roark. It's not that I didn't like this one, it's more that I wished we got a more solid story and for that we needed more than 90 pages.

Essien Dodd and Roark Hammond have  been circling each other for the past six month even since Essien moved into town with his teenage daughter. Roark wants the sexy firefighter but he can't make himself hurt Essien with his current situation. Everyone loves the cool Pediatrician including Essien but Roark seems to always disappear on him when they are close by. 

Easy Evenings (Mangrove Stories, #4) [Lazlo & Britton] by Mary Calmes

Yet another endearing story. I expected something else from both Lazlo and Britton though I'm not sure even what. Maybe because I didn't know what they have been through together and the depth of it before I started. 

We've met both MCs in the previous installments in the series. Lazlo Maguire is a laid back guy, well liked in the small town of Mangrove even if everyone knows that half the year he lives here selling his craft and half the year he is a high class rent-boy in the big city. Though most of no one knows his story (except for his 2 best friends) no one resents him or look down on him. Mangrove is truly his home, but up until now he had no reason to stop renting himself out. 

Sultry Sunset (Mangrove Stories, #3) [Hutch & Mike] by Mary Calmes

I'm loving this series! These are such comfort reads! Again with the friends to lovers. I admit I love this turf. It's one of my favorites. It's the best kind of love if you ask me. Someone you first consider your best friend before the next (sexual) step is made. it's the same here with Hutch and Mike though what is different is Mike suppose to be straight.. 

We've met Hutch Crowley in the previous installments. It's fun getting to know the people in this town and see them find their HEA and after having a revisit in the next installment. It makes sense reading these in order but truthfully they all can be read as stand-alones. Hutch runs the grocery store in the small town of Mangrove and building a recreational center. It's easy for him to focus on the new project now that he trusts his best friend Mike to run the grocery store.

Quiet Nights (Mangrove Stories, #2) [Kelly & Cosimo] by Mary Calmes

Another sweet and endearing story. This one, like the previous one was friends to lovers though everything else about it was different. Kelly and Coz served in the military together, after saving Coz's life, Kelly returns to the small town of Mangrove where Coz lives to make a life of his own by his best friend and his family which has become his own. 

We've met Kelly Seaton for just a minute in the previous installment, he is the new gardener in Takeo and Dwyer B&B and though Takeo and Dwyer have a small part to play in this one, you don't have to read it to enjoy this one. Kelly loves Coz but he also loves his new family - Coz' mother and bigger sister. They have become his only family and he cherishes them. Though it's obvious to him he loves Coz he can't see himself making the first move when he can lose everyone he loves if it falls apart. 

Blue Days (Mangrove Stories, #1) [Dwyer & Takeo] by Mary Calmes

This short novella was SO SWEET and endearing! I LOVED it! I loved the fact that even though the romantic part of this novella was right at the very end I could totally accept that because they were already close friends and we see that happen little by little. 

The story begins with a change of management in the company Dwyer Knolls works at. He expects to be fired for the big project he lost, but actually the new management considered it a failure to support his vision which actually cost the company a lot of money. Now they are willing to give him a big chance and promote him. The company gets "help" from the Japanese branch and so Dwyer gets a new partner. Not the hot one he wanted to get.. but actually a partner who fast becomes a good friend and the best partner.

Reawaken (Under My Skin #2) [Tristan & West] by Christina Lee

You know, I just realized I TOTALLY get the name of this series, this book (like the previous one) GOT UNDER MY SKIN. I sat for I don't know 5 hours barely moving and read the whole thing. Tristan and West broke my heart but managed to put it back together for a heart breakingly beautiful ending. This book was a journey, for both MCs, they needed time to heal, time to connect, time to find the courage inside themselves to make a change. I loved that. Even though there's a rather big age difference between them (10+ years) it meant nothing because they were both dealing with similar issues and "general life experience" doesn't change the impact these things have on ANYONE no matter their age. 

We've met Tristan Rogers in the previous installment - "Regret", he is the owner of "Doggie Styles" a dog day care. Though Tristan have a business he loves and employers he considers family he is still broken up instead over losing his husband 3 years ago to brain tumor. Tristan and Chris build there business together, built their whole lives together and now, everywhere Tristan turns Chris is there though mostly in his head. He misses him terribly and is simply not ready yet to move on. 

November 2017 Reading List

This month I have a very exciting adventure planned! I'm going to the World Dog Show in Leipzig, Germany. Though I've been in the world of purebred dogs for a little over 10 years, this is the first time the opportunity REALLY presented itself to go and see this kind of a show and I'm SO excited about it all. For me it marks a new path that I never truly considered before, taking a step towards something special and the show is just the beginning. 

Tomorrow I'll be going back to my studies which is exciting as well. These studies are also a different path than I thought I'll ever take actually. I'm taking it easy, one course a year since I'm not willing to sacrifice the convenience of my life to going to school in a greater capacity so it means it's going to take me at least 3 years to finish which I'm actually truly fine with. 

I mostly planned for this month a Contemporary Romance series by Mary Calmes two shorts by Katy Regnery and two novels by a new to me Author - Sue Brown. Truth be told there was A LOT more planned but, well.. life happened..

Winter is here! I'm planning to get cozy and grab my kindle as often as possible!

          Late in the Day (The Vault #2) [Darius & Efrem] by Mary Calmes

          Like the previous book in the series, this one felt a bit short for a full length novel. I would have LOVED for a more substantial re-connection between the two MCs. This book was engaging with a great pace, and yet it was mostly about Darius' current position as "The Vault" and a lot of recollection of Darius and Efrem's live together when they were a couple 16 years ago when they were both serving in the army together. 

          Monday, October 30, 2017

          Hammer & Air by Amy Lane

          I didn't have patience for this one at all. The language was strange so it was difficult to read at times, our MC Eirn tells us his and his best friend Graeme story. Their lives was pretty horrible even if he just told it "as is" (I guess because that was just life for them). 

          Eirn's thoughts are consumed by Graeme or as nicknamed - "Hammer", mostly on the sexual side. Up till where I got (25%) it was about 90% sex thoughts or acts with A LOT of possessiveness from Hammer's side.  This one feels more like an Erotica (PNR?) novel. I"m not even sure how old they are because as Eirn tells it, he runs a bit from past to present and he sounds a bit "childish" to me. 

          Saturday, October 28, 2017

          The Servant by Mary Calmes

          I liked he idea behind this one, but I gotta say, like the previous book I've read by Mary it was all over the place where POVs were concerned. Each paragraph could be right around anyone's POV and it kept changing. I don't like this style of narration though it wasn't that difficult to understand who was "talking". The world building was all over the place as well, though I don't fault Mary for it, there was a lot to build in very few pages.. I've read the synopsis a while back so actually I wasn't sure what is going to happen or rather who our "cat in a hat" is going to chose. That was fun!

          Friday, October 27, 2017

          The Guardian by Mary Calmes

          Though I enjoyed this book it was  a bit too tangled for my liking. It felt rushed at times, disorganized and the relationship buildup was on the verge of insta-love. Yet the story was fun and engaging and I was interested to see how Jude and Eoin would find a way to build a life together. 

          Jude Shea had a good life, a job he enjoyed, a gorgeous boyfriend he hopes to build a future together with when he finds himself with no boyfriend and no job in one night. For the past two weeks he isn't sure what to do with himself and then comes a restless night he goes for a walk and stumbles upon a huge dog mauled by a group of stray dogs. Not sure what drew him to the situation he takes the dog to the vet and makes him his own. "Joe" doesn't look or behave like a regular dog but for Jude he's a companion he enjoys having even though his life is so uncertain at the moment.

          A Dangerous Invitation (The Rookery Rogues, #1) [Kate & Daniel] by Erica Monroe

          I don't read many Historicals which is why starting is always a sort of a struggle to get used to the archaic language. With this one it was no different and yet as the story progressed I realized I'm having a hard time mainly because I'm not interested enough in the MCs. After reading about a third I decided I'm not invested enough in the story and the difficult language was not making it any better..

          Kate Morgan's life changed in a blink of an eye. She was wealthy, the daughter of a successful merchant. She and her father were a team, working together and having each other's backs since she was a little girl when her mother left them. She fell in love with Daniel O'Reilly who also worked for her father. They were already engaged to be married when all hell broke loose. Daniel was charged with murder of another worker, from there the business crumbled, her father's health deteriorated until he died and she was left with nothing except for her father's great coat and handgun. To take care of herself she needed to learn a trade - thieving. But she has made it work for the past three years since Daniel escaped from prison before his trial.

          Bountiful (True North #4) [Zara & Dave] by Sarina Bowen

          I always gets excited when there's a new release by Sarina. I love her writing and enjoy her realistically flawed characters. I truly enjoy the journey they take, on their own and together before they can find their HEA with one another. This was no different and yet it was. It was a romance story but it was also HEAVILY focused on raising a toddler which is NOT my cup of tea AT ALL. I know for a fact most women would totally swoon at everything little Nicole did. I found it to be tiresome. I guess she WAS cute but what she was for me was a distraction from the main issue as I see it - Zara and Dave's story. 

          Monday, October 16, 2017

          Bolt-hole by Amy Lane

          I've very little to say about this book because I haven't read most of it. I'll start  by saying something important - It's not the book, it's me. I just couldn't connect to the MC (and our sole POV) Terrell. His mind constantly tells him he is poor from the worst side of the side, with the worst background, not to mention he is black and also - gay. Though he won't allow himself to actually BE gay because that's more than not "allowed" where he comes from. I feel for him, truly. That's horrible to be "dismissed" or looked down upon because of things you have no control over and really shouldn't be put against you because they shouldn't even be an issue nowadays. But sadly - they are. That's not just the book, it's reality (even if things ARE changing). 

          Saturday, October 14, 2017

          A Gentleman's Position (Society of Gentlemen #3) [Richard & David] by K.J. Charles

          OUTSTANDING. One of the best books I've read hands down. This book held me at the edge of my seat from the moment I opened my kindle until I closed it a few hours later realizing I'm HUNGRY! I've sat for about 6 hours almost without moving devouring this book unable to stop. I"ve waited for Lord Richard Vane's and David Cyprian story from the start. I KNEW it's going to be special but I didn't predict just HOW amazing it's going to be. This wasn't just about Richard and David realizing they are both in love with one another, it was mainly about what are the changes their relationship will have to undergo. It's what Richard has feared all along but for the entirely the wrong reasons. 

          Before I start my review - a "warning". This book shouldn't be read as a standalone because it isn't. The first and second book share mostly the same timeline with this book starting at the very conclusion of the second book. The characters and the interaction between them should NOT be left to this book. It would be a total shame to miss any of these details because some are explained, I would think it wouldn't be enough to get to the depth of them. Dominic Frey (the MC in the 2nd installment) have been Richard's best friend and long time lover and everything that happened between them is discussed not only in this one but also in the previous one in which Richard has to put his past beliefs aside to be there for his friend, but it also a sort of "warning" for him for everything that he has been feeling for his valet - inappropriate on so many levels and practically impossible. Yet when Dom and Richard talk throughout this book everything that happened between them since they were boys make the difference in Richard making the change he should have made a long time ago. For his sake, for Dom's and finally for him to be able to have David not only by his side, but also in his bed as an equal lover.  

          Thursday, October 12, 2017

          A Seditious Affair (Society of Gentlemen #2) [Dom & Silas] by K.J. Charles

          I gotta say this one was not what I expected it to be, or rather, I enjoyed it far more than I thought I would considering two things that mostly put me off - BDSM and politics. Unlike the previous one we were thrown right into the game, maybe because we've already known all of the characters and the interaction between them so we could start with where it all began with Dom and Silas sharing a bed as a brute and a Tori. Not realizing just yet that they are sworn enemies, or at least they're suppose to be.

          Midnight Unleashed (Midnight Breed #14.7) [Trygg & Sia] by Lara Adrian

          The "Midnight Breed" used to be my all times favorite PNR series though lately its place have been taken. Yet I still get excited when I hear there's a new novel in the series, even though it's just a short novella which doesn't feature most of the known characters in the series. These novellas are a nice way for people to try this series and see if it works for them, because it doesn't reveal too much and allows people who don't know any of things that happen in the 10+ books to enjoy a short novella and also be tempted to grab the first one and immerse themselves in the Midnight Breed world.

          Finding Home by Garrett Leigh

          Math was never my strong side so when I put on the equation - a new book by Garrett vs. a Young Adult novel I did and didn't know what to expect. Thing is, I LOVE Garrett's books, I enjoy the misery she puts me and mostly her characters (!) through, I love the feel of the story, the uniqueness of the characters, the emotional ride that is SO worth it even when my heart is breaking. Yet I dislike Young Adult novels.. I just don't have the patience for it. Not for their issues which seem too far away for me, and not for their interests which seem even MORE distant from the place I am in today and that without mentioning how miserable I was at these ages, which means I have NO desire to revisit these times in someone else's head. Nope! 

          That being said, it's no wonder really I LOVED LOVED LOVED this story. For me, the fact that Charlie and Leo were teens is such a non significant detail. It was about love and trust. It was about life disappointing you for too many times for you to expect something wonderful that you couldn't even imagine would happen to you. It's about finding a home in the most unexpected place, it's about finding love when you thought you don't have anything more to give or to feel. I really don't think it matters what genres you read, and if you've ever read a YA or MM novel before you SHOULD give this one a go. It's beautiful and it's different than the usual YA with the issues it deals with that make it not about age but about experience and the MM part is there naturally but there is very little sexual interaction which makes it appropriate for younger reader or ones who feel uncomfortable with (gay) sex.

          Unloved, a love story by Katy Regnery

          This book was SUCH a beautiful heart breaking read! I read it literally in one gulp, it was impossible to put down and frankly, why would I?! Cass and Brynn we the sweetest thing together. They both wanted, no, craved for a chance to love, to care, to have a meaningful person in their lives, yet life has brought them so much pain it's not an easy thing to surrender themselves to. For Cass it's MUCH more complicated.. He can't tell her, he won't tell her and by it break both of their hearts. Yet this IS a love story and the ending, the whole rap of the story was quite surprising in the best possible way.
