Between the Devil and the Pacific Blue by Charlie Cochet

I really enjoyed this one! But it's surely going to be one of the worst reviews I've ever written because I don't want to spoiler ANYTHING. So let's just make it simple - Do you like strange ghost stories? If the answer is yes - no debate, just grab this short novella and ENJOY!

The Bells of Times Square by Amy Lane

This book truly broke my heart. I can't remember when (or even if..) I EVER found myself crying for a WHOLE hour (the last of the book). Truly a masterpiece, though I know that no matter how much I'll try my review won't give it the justice it deserves.

The book start with a very old Nate Meyer. Like every year since 1946, Nate have been going to Times Square in New Years Eve to listen to a church bells that never actually ring in honor of his wartime lover. At this age and time, Nate can barely communicate and is strapped to a wheelchair - but that won't stop him from his yearly ritual. 

By his side is his (not yet out) gay grandson, trying to ask his grandfather for acceptance. Nate sees his grandson's lover and looking at them together makes him relive again everything he had and lost with HIS lover - Walter.

The Heart of Frost (North Pole City Tales #2) [Jack & Rudy] by Charlie Cochet

I didn't like this one at all :( The pace was very strange, mostly it was slow. The relationship between Rudy and Jack was already established YEARS ago, they were sweet together, at times a bit too sugary even. But my problem was the plot part of the story took WAY too much time and while all the action happened Jack behaved SO badly I couldn't care less about him. Yeah he had his reasons and mostly he "wasn't to blame" still doesn't mean I like him..

Mending Noel (North Pole City Tales #1) [Tim & Noel] by Charlie Cochet

This is the first I've tried by Charlie besides the THIRDS series. I had high expectations I'll be honest.. which is why I'm so sad and annoyed this one just didn't work for me. The world building is AWESOME. I don't celebrate Christmas but if I did I would probably find this one even more special. Every reference, every character or theme in this book is ALL Christmas. It was really cool seeing how the author made a whole new world were all the characters and treats are everyday life material.
