The Way Home, from Linda Oaks (The Chasing Series #3)

The Way Home RB Banner

Hi, there! The moment finally arrived and here we have my review for the third book in The Chasing Series by Linda Oaks: The Way Home! My copy was sent to me by Love Affair With Fiction team in exchange for an honest review ❤ As if I would pass on a Linda Oaks book! She’s, like, a goddess or something! ❤

the story

Nate Lucas knows first-handed how much life can suck. How hard life quick’s your ass when you’re already down. His existence wasn’t ever something easy or full of love and laughter, but he was happy once. He was happy with Natalie, his high-school sweetheart.

After losing her and their unborn child to a stupid car accident, Nate lost himself. He didn’t care about anything anymore; his heart froze in the pain and grief. The only thing that kept him alive was the desire of punish himself for allowing Natalie to drive alone to school on that fateful morning. Nate swore he would never go back to Crawley, to the place that once held his world and his happiness.

But life always kicks you when you’re down.

Nate is forcefully back in town and soon enough everyone in the little place has already recognized him and the gossip are back in its fullest. Nate couldn’t care less about all this shit.

Until he met Miley, one of the waitresses of his new restaurant/bar.

Will Nate be able to let go of Natalie and allow Miley in or will the past and lies be stronger and pull Nate back to his grieving hole?

the analysis

Just remembering that those were my impressions and opinion as a reader 🙂

Leave behind all hopes for an impartial review. I love Linda Oaks to the core, I love her writing style, I love her soul and I’m very proud of calling her a personal friend. I helped Linda with The Way Home as a beta reader and it is so beautiful to see it alive and ready to be loved! ❤ I fell for Nate since his mysterious small appearance in Finding Forever – all books in The Chasing Series can be read as standalones, as one story doesn’t impact the other 🙂 – and just knew his book would be awesome. And guess what: IT WAS! And the funniest thing is that Linda’s romances have spicy scenes, are all first person narratives and contemporary romances. Yes, all things I usually don’t like. AND YET I LOVE THEM ALL! That’s why I said she was a goddess: she makes me love all the things I usually don’t. It’s black magic!

let me love you

Without further ado, I can’t give this book any less than five big proud stars and a voucher to a free hug for Linda *–*

As mentioned, the narrative style is first person from Nate’s point of view during the whole book and that was a change of scenery; both Chasing Rainbows and Finding Forever had female narrators (Addie and Kara, respectively). It’s like Linda innovates with each book and I really like that about her! Chasing Rainbows was a YA contemporary, Finding Forever was a New Adult contemporary and now The Way Home follows the New Adult contemporary with a male main character 😀

The plot was simple and complex in its simplicity. A couple trying to work pass their ghosts to be together is never something simple, yet there is no big mystery involved in the book. I really like Linda’s writing style, as it is fluid, involving, heart-warming and has that refined humor to it, as we are always on the main character’s heads ❤

92962-I-am-so-in-love-with-you-gif-D-7Kch

The characters are always the best part on Linda’s works. Nate and Miley are both broken before they meet (or should I say re-meet? Hmmm) and their relationship makes them stronger without being needy and lovey-dovey with each other ❤ Okay, maybe a little, but Nate is not the lovey-dovey 100% of the time type when in love, so that helps. It’s a healthy lovey-dovey deal. I’ll stop saying lovey-dovey now.

The hardest thing about being a fangirl is that you tend to overlook flaws and have nothing bad to say about the things you love or to love it so much that you criticize every single detail that you don’t like. The Way Home falls in the first category with me: I HAVE NOTHING BAD TO SAY ABOUT IT, OMG! I simply can’t see it, sorry guys. You’ll have to read the book and tell me the flaws that I overlooked, haha!

Overall, if you like lovely contemporary romances, really hot and dangerous guys, funny and smart girls and a heart-warming book, I’d say you need to read ALL Linda’s books and not just The Way Home

Beneath the Surface, from M. A. Church

Beneath the Surface Banner 851 x 315.png

Good morning! Look who is up and shinning so early today, haha! This posts concerns a very special book review, part of the Beneath the Surface blog tour hosted by Bewitching Book Tours ❤ If you’ve been here for a while, you know I’m crazy about gay romances – if you haven’t, well… SURPRISE! Haha ;D Anyway, Beneath The Surface, from M. A. Church, is our star of the moment and you will soon find out why!

Also, I’ve received my review copy from Bewitching Book Tours in exchange for an honest review 🙂

from my Instagram 😀

the story

(Goodreads’ blurb)

A whole different world exists beneath the surface.

The last thing Nisha expects while patrolling his territory is to find his mate, but his instincts tell him the handsome human diving into the surf is the one meant for him. Two bites and Kannon will be joined to him forever. But when Kannon’s father disrupts the mating process, Nisha releases his claim, hoping beyond hope his mate will one day return.

While free diving with his father, Kannon is bitten by a seductive merman. Although he swore to never go near the ocean again, the pull to return to the water and his mystery man remains strong. Finally, after fifteen years away, an impromptu wedding brings Kannon back to the Seychelles, and his destiny.

Kannon only plans to stay on the island for a week, but this time Nisha won’t let his mate go without a fight. Merfolk and human culture collide as the embers of Nisha and Kannon’s mate bond ignite, and Nisha must complete the mating before it’s too late.

the analysis

Just remembering that those were my impressions and opinion as a reader 🙂

Beneath the Surface was my first gay romance involving mermaids and my third overall book involving mermaids in life. I’m fascinated about mermaids – or merfolk, as in this case I’m talking about both girls and boys with tails – so it felt like Church just got some glue and united the best of both worlds for me. I even joked with an offline friend that if the book was set in the 19th century and Kannon was a vampire, this book would have reached the ultimatum perfection for me, haha! As it is, Beneath the Surface is already a pleasant enough read 😉

you get the best of both worlds

Despite my high satisfaction upon ending the book, I must warn you that there are some flaws on it. Some loose ends in the plot, the writing style could become a little rough sometimes, this kind of stuff. And, as I said once before, my reviews are fair and analytical – my rating is totally personal. The book suited me, suited my tastes and was exactly what I was pinning for, so I happily gave it five stars 🙂

The narrative style was my favorite: third person with switching points of view between the main couple, Kannon and Nisha. I laughed had with Kannon, as he was new to the merfolk world just as the reader is – at least, how I am, haha! Three mermaid books in life is hardly a number that can turn me into an expert, right? 🙂 Nisha’s parts were cool because we could understand his reasoning and motives better, but he’s the mainstream tall, dark, handsome and sexy type of guy. He engaged on Kannon’s humor, but rarely started it himself.

The plot was simple and straightforward, with Kannon and Nisha having to work their relationship to a level that is agreeable for both of them. What I really liked about Beneath the Surface is that there is no instalove, not even with the mating deal. Nisha for sure cares about Kannon to the point of stalking and Kannon worries about Nisha, but in not a single moment they say they are in love. In fact, Kannon express that he doesn’t love Nisha yet, but the bound that he feels with the merman for sure can’t be ignored and would easily grow into more over the time. I loved it ❤

feelings crowley supernatural

Now, let’s talk for a moment about things that weren’t that good in Beneath the Surface. I wasn’t impressed with the characters overall, I think they were pretty superficial. I know the book is short – practically a novella – but it is possible to construct deep and awesome characters with even less pages than this. Just ask Ava March. I was a little sad to see that there wasn’t anything else beneath the character’s surface (you see what I did there? Haha). Also, there were small loose ends that bothered me a little and some events that sound kind of an excuse for Kannon and Nisha to have sex. Don’t get me wrong, Church can pull off a sex scene like a pro, but the knitting of them with the plot sometimes had me wondering. And, the last problematic point was the writing style. Sometimes, it was fluid, interesting and seat grabbing. Other times, it dragged and turned rough, like I was reading a play rather than a book 😦 Oh, and I won’t even mention all the problems with the cover art.

that i can't even talk about devil wears prada emily blunt.gif

Okay, going back to the good vibes: the characters! Unfortunately no one in Beneath the Surface made it to My Bookish Boyfriends list, but I still had a great time with Kannon. He was so funny and optimistic all the time! You know, all the time that he hasn’t scared to death, haha! I wasn’t impressed with Nisha – cool and quiet guys that act as dominant aren’t really my thing. I usually go with funny, relaxed and dorky. But one thing I can say: Nisha is beautiful and no one can deny him that, haha!

he's really really hot

One thing that really stands out on the book is how Church pictures the merfolk. I know I haven’t a lot of experience in the area, but Nisha’s lectures one of the best parts of the book! I loved to learn more about how merfolk function and the details on Nisha’s transformation were breathtaking!

Overall, Beneath the Surface is no deep and complex book by any means, but if you enjoy gay romances, mermaids and quick reads, you totally should give this one a go!

Love Me Never, from Sara Wolf (Lovely Vicious #1)

Hi, there! Welcome to the second official review of the day 😀 It’s part of my stop at Love Me Never Blog Tour, hosted by Chapter by Chapter 😀 I’ve received my copy of Love Me Never, first book in the Lovely Vicious series from Sara Wolf, in exchange for an honest review and the moment has arrived!

from my Instagram

the story

3 years, 9 weeks, 5 days.

That’s how long it has been since the last time that Isis Blake fell in love. If she can help, this counting will never end. She knows that ugly people like her are not loved, so why even try? She’s okay with being just awesome and perfect all the time instead. Also, she’s the new girl in school, so she has yet to teach people in East Summit High how awesome she is.

Her regular boring high school days come to an end rather quickly, as Isis ends punching the most beautiful and unsuferable boy of the school right in his nose during her first party. How can people allow Jack Hunter to say the most awful things to their face and still like him?

Someone has to put the Ice Prince back into his place in humanity. And Isis is more than willing to be this awesome martyr.

The war is on.

the analysis

Just remembering that those were my impressions and opinion as a reader 🙂

Honestly? This book was everything I’d hope for and more. SO. MUCH. MORE. I laughed out loud so many times with Isis that my cheeks still hurt, haha! She was one of the best female characters ever and she officially joined my bookish bffs army! Seriously, she rocked my world. I’m feeling blessed for meeting so many wonderful contemporary romances lately – a book like Love Me Never makes me re-think all my previous opinions of the genre and see it in a whole new way!

tumblr_mu9h1b48nW1rix3h3o1_500

Also, I could NEVER EVER have predicted that twist and the cliff hanger in the end, OMG! Without any shade of doubt, this is a full big five stars read!

The narrative style is first person, switching points between Isis and Jack, but we mainly follow Isis around, as Jack is the mystery to be solved. I loved Isis and I longed for this sense of camaraderie since Integrity and Gifted Thief. I can only imagine the size of the damages both women would do if working together, haha! World domination is a given!

The plot is ingenious and makes the reader wonder through the possibilities all the time. It’s not really hard to guess the whole story with Isis, but we are left wanting for what Jack truly did for so long! It’s nothing Sherlock Holmes-like complex or anything, but the war and the strings that Jack and Isis pull off during it is just BREATHTAKING! AND THAT TWIST IN THE END?! OMG OMG OMG!!!

i like sam winchester supernatural

The lower characters were totally obfuscated by Isis and Jack. While Jack is the not so mainstream beautiful untouchable type minus the vampireness, Isis is the epitome of a bubbly, smart-ass and strong teen girl. She has insecurities, has deep problems with herself and still manages to pull it all off and have fun, being always true to herself and her beliefs – no matter the social costs of that. Kayla, Wren and Avery also had a big part to play and were very well constructed characters, but seriously. I can’t see their shine like Isis does. ❤

I decided that Jack earned his spot on My Bookish Boyfriends list, despite some things that he did during the story that left me less than impressed. I have a weakness for good looking, really bad and mean and intelligent guys. I wish more real men would appreciate the beauty of being intelligent, haha! Also, Jack reads manga! OMG!

the club can't even handle me.gif

The strongest point on the book is for sure its dialogues and Isis deep thoughts. She’s the what-you-see-is-what-you-get person when it comes to her mouth, so she talks exactly in the way she thinks and this can be both brilliant and hilarious, haha! I took the liberty of selecting some pearls from the book for you to understand what I’m talking about, haha!

This dialogue when Isis first meets Kayla:

Kayla: They are probably VEOs or something.

Isis: CEOs.

Kayla: Yeah! I guess it’s a really important job, but then I thought about it really hard and how can it be so important if it’s only three letters?

Isis: You may be onto something. Something very drunk, byt definitely something.

~*~

This dialogue between Isis and her mom:

Mom: Did you have fun? How many boys did you make out with?

Isis: Seventy. At least.

Mom: How many shots did you take?

Isis: Fourteen. I let go of the wheel halfway home and Jesus drove me the rest of the way.

Mom: I’m glad you had fun.

~*~

A small sneak peek of how Isis and Jack war goes:

Jack: How did you find me? If you hacked into the Club’s computer to look up my appointments-

Isis: Whoa, I think you overestimate me, shitlord. Last time I checked, all I did was be in the wrong place at the right time. I saw you and had to-

Jack: Stalk me.

Isis: – delicately approach you. In a sideways manner. From behind. Without being seen at all. For ten minutes.

~*~

And those Isis solo wisdom moments:

“If I were less perfect I would probably be bothered by insults.”

~*~

“And he uses big weird words, so he’s probably a huge nerd. To be fair, I do, too, but that’s because I’m mildly fabulous. Jack has no such excuse.”

~*~

“Thanks, ancient Chinese philosofers. You guys are the best. And the deadest. But mostly the best.”

~*~

“If there’s anything I’ve learned this year, it’s that I have to stand up for myself, or no one else will.”

~*~

“I know it’s hard to believe, but some people my age aren’t entirely obsessed with the idiotic game called dating! Some of us have lives! And generally higher goals than messing around with our peers. I’ve got colleges to apply to! And friends to hang out with! And an entire life to plan!”

~*~

“I’m not fighting anybody. Well, I have to fight on a daily basis not to marry myself, but no.”

~*~

Overall, If you love YA, fun and galaxy-talking-proportions mind-blowing books, electrical and strong protagonists and a good mystery, PLEASE STOP READING MY DAMN BLOG AND GO READ LOVE ME NEVER!!!

Broken Down, from Amanda K. Byrne (Hidden Scars #2)

BrokenDownTourBanner.png

Hi, there! Welcome to the first official review of the day! I’m hoping to write more than my two schedule, that’s why I say “official”. I’m here to talk about Broken Down, second book in the Hidden Scars series, from Amanda K. Byrne! I’ve received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review from Xpresso Book Tours. Thanks again, guys! Let’s do it!

broken down.JPG
from my Instagram!

the story

Shane knows that Krista sent him on his way all those months ago for a reason. He was a jerky during their relationship – if one can call what they had a relationship at all. Shane was too weak to fight for what he wanted with Krista then.

Not anymore. Not after Eric.

Shane won’t stand losing Krista too. He wants her, he needs her in order to keep breathing. And he knows she won’t refuse to at least help him, so he takes a long shot and appears on her doorstep, in the middle of the night…

.Krista broke up with Shane for a reason. Ok, several reasons, but still: they were just fuck buddies and she fell for him. The rules were simple and she broke then. She had to walk away in order to keep sane. She refuses to allow anyone else to break her again.

Not anymore. Not after Riley and her break down.

Krista is doing her best to move on with her new career and life in Portland, far away from the temptations of Los Angeles. Away from Shane. She just didn’t count that the one thing she couldn’t have would appear on her door… Just like he always did.

the analysis

Just remembering that those were my impressions and opinion as a reader 🙂

Broken Down is a very well-written book. At first, I was afraid this would be one of those romances full of meaningless porn-like sex with ridiculous existential doubts.

And then I read page one and was hooked.

I fell deeply in love with both Shane and Krista, they were wonderful protagonists and managed to not irritate me at all! They screw up for sure, but they were so real, their situation so down to earth that my heart was always filled with emotion during the read. I won’t lie, there were some parts in that I couldn’t believe what I was reading and how much of an ass Shane was, but even then, I also could understand a little his side. I didn’t let go of Broken Down until it ended and it is with the deepest pleasure that I announce it a five stars book! ❤

The narrative style is third person, with switching points of view between Shane and Krista. I loved how Byrne manages to insert us deep within the characters minds without using the first person narrator, IT IS BLACK MAGIC!! =O

tumblr_nppj5kekC61rxdmt1o2_250

This is my favorite narrative style and Byrne’s writing was so powerful and beautiful that I wanted to hug her several times during this book. Also, there were lots of funny moments to harmonize all the drama that James and Krista are going through.

The plot was complex on a simple way, as both Shane and Krista had many pending problems and secrets that they kept from each other. They had to basically come clean and start their relationship over in order to be together and this is so much more easier said than done. Also, there are a couple of twists that simply blew my mind up!

beyonce speechless

The characters were just awesome. As I said, I fell in love with Krista and Shane and found myself pinning for them to be together all the time – I usually don’t fangirl about heterosexual couples, which proves the black magic use on Byrne’s part, haha! Shane only didn’t make it to My Bookish Boyfriends list because his behavior is not quite my style. I prefer my men more open and gentlemen like, haha!

Also, all characters were so real. Their struggles, funny quotes, how they deal with problems… EVERYTHING! I loved it ❤ I’m tempted to give a go to the first book (Hidden Scars) and see how Sara and Taylor really met and got together, as she is the PERFECT best friend, haha! Let’s see if I have an opportunity to read it some time 🙂

One of the strongest points on Broken Down was how Byrne handled abortion. One of the characters chose to have one and lose her incoming child and defended her choice as the correct one until the end. Given that:

  • her brother was in a coma due to heroin use;
  • her parents didn’t give a crap for what happened to her brother;
  • her work had given her a nervous breakdown and she had to quit;
  • she was taking anxiety meds;
  • and, most importantly, she had dumped the father of the child before acknowledging the pregnancy (which was result of a bad condom incident) and thought they would never meet again;

I say I’m with her on that. And when the said former boyfriend asked if he didn’t have a say in the abortion, she’s absolute: no, he hadn’t! It was her body, it was her problem! They weren’t together anymore, her life was a mess and both her mind and body couldn’t afford to bring a child to this world. She would have never forgiven herself if she hadn’t stopped the pregnancy. This is such a delicate matter and Byrne just slayed it like a queen. I am so proud of her!

applause

I am most pleased to say that there are three sex scenes in the book and each one important for a reason. No frantic bodies every two pages, no hours reading porn on the reader’s end, not any of the things that usually makes me avoid contemporary romance 😀 And, to be honest, the scenes are very hot, filled with emotion, passion, unspoken and spoken love and vulgarity free!

And can we take a moment to appreciate this cover? It’s not my usual cup of tea, but I liked it! It totally matches the mood of the book *–*

Overall, if you love well-written books, romance, down to earth characters that could live up on your street and be your neighbors, strong females and grumpy rock stars, Broken Down will be the book of your lifetime!

Thanks again to Xpresso Book Tours for sending me a review copy of the book in exchange for an honest review and selecting me for this tour! ❤ The moment is here 😀

The Story

Katie is the kind of woman that has no room for relationship in her life right now. She has a goal and she will achieve it: she will be a prosecutor and defend children from abuse. She will make a difference in the world. The fact that she had to move back to Belmont, the city where she grew up, is just a minor setback, due to the economic crisis. In less than one year, she’ll move out again and fulfill her dream.

James is the kind of man that has no room for relationship in his life right now. Recently out of a nine year long and deeply stressful relationship, all James wants is to have a good time and relax. To date and see women without any kind of commitment. The fact that he needs a date for his sister’s wedding is just a minor setback on his relaxed way of life. The fact that he will be taking Kate, his former date for high school prom night, makes it all easier. In less than one week, things will go back to their places.

Both didn’t even dream of what was to come…

The Analysis

Just remembering that those were my impressions and opinion as a reader 🙂

I loved The Wedding Date so much!! It is official: I like my contemporary romances with strong women, funny and gentlemen-like men, without unnecessary sex scenes and with much love and passion involved in smart dialogues ❤ Light and fun, The Wedding Date is a lovely read that I couldn’t put down until it was over. Five stars!!

The narrative style was first person with switching points of view between Kate and James. I really liked both characters, so I could pull it off. I wish I always hit it off with characters that are the narrators to their own story. My life would be so much more easier, haha!

The plot was simple and highly well executed: small-town girl comes back after years away for studying, runs into high school prom date that become a hot as hell man, he needs her help and they fall in love in the process ❤ I loved it, haha! The romance was so real, so sweet that I wanted to hug both Kate and James, haha!

miley cyrus hannah montana hugging stuffed animal

I love the characters to the core: Kate was strong, decided and secure almost all time. We all have weakness and self-pity moments, but she always manage to pull herself out of the hole without much drama. Her life story is far from being a fairy tale even after James stepped in, but I do believe that they will be happily ever after on their own ways, haha! Also, James is perfect. I love men that cook. I think it’s like the sexiest trait a man can possess, really. And the fact that Kate loved to eat what other people cooked was so me that I laughed hard ❤

that is so me.gif

James is very realistic and good humored. He always have fun things to say and good stories to tell – the fact that he may be hot as hell also helps his case, I guess. He made it to My Bookish Boyfriends list easily, haha! He did all the right things but he clearly wasn’t perfect, you know?

And omg, how I wish I was a part of the Abell family. I’m not complaining, my own family can be a handful (sorry, guys, I love you!), but they were just SO FUNNY! I think I haven’t pinned for a family like this since the Weasleys when I was a child, haha!

If you love romance, fun books and light reads, you really need to grab The Wedding Date

Princess of Tyrone, from Katie Hamstead (The Fairytale Galaxy Chronicles #1)

Princess of Tyrone tour banner.jpg

Hi, there! You are indeed seeing another review up on the blog, this is not a training, haha! This is my stop for YA Bound Book Tours blog tour for Princess of Tyrone, the first book in The Fairytale Galaxy Chronicles, from Katie Hamstead! 😀

I’ve received my copy from YA Bound Book Tours in exchange for an honest review – thank you again! The moment is here 😀

from my Instagram!

The Story

Apolline is the kind of girl that you wouldn’t call feminine. Raised by her three fairy aunts on a very small and far away planet, Apolline knows her way around hunting, self-defense and cursing just like the galactic pirates that often stop by the planet for trading. She knows that she’ll have to marry some guy when she reaches her 21th birthday, but she tries to not give it too much thought. It’s not like her aunts would tell her anything anyway.

Allard is the kind of prince that is perfect for his place in the world. Well-mannered, dutiful, highly educated and handsome, Allard has been prepared all his life to rule when the time comes. He knows he’ll have to marry princess Elpida when she reaches her 21th birthday, but tries to not give it too much thought. It’s not like he can break the arrangement.

Allard and Apolline had never questioned their fates until meeting each other. Apolline had never met a man like Allard, so clean, schooled and handsome, and Allard had never known a girl that didn’t faint on his presence – or didn’t know at all that he was that Prince Allard.

They know that their days are counted, as both are betrothed to other people, but how can they simply walk back into their old lives after what they experienced with each other?

Can they walk away and fulfill their fates or will their passion end their worlds forever?

The Analysis

Just remembering that those were my impressions and opinion as a reader 🙂

I make no secret that Sleeping Beauty is my current favorite princess (come on, her life is too #goals, haha!), so I knew I’d like reading Princess of Tyrone. I just didn’t expect to fall madly in love with it and it was great! I loved the world building, the writing, the switching narrators and styles, how Katie rebuilt Sleeping Beauty’s world and tangled it up with a ton of other fairy tales! It’s just too good to be true ❤ I honestly loved everything on this book, I can’t say a thing! FIVE BEAUTIFUL STARS!

The narrative style switched between first person from Apolline’s point of view and third person from the POVS of Allard and Bryanna. It worked so wonderfully, omg! I already had loved this technique in Slumber [review here and also a Sleeping Beauty retelling that you should totally check out!], so it was nice to see it in good use again!

perfection

The plot was simple and, as anyone that knows Sleeping Beauty’s story, I already knew how things would end. The catch here is how Hamstead managed to entwine other fairy tales on the story, like Cinderella, Snow White, Hansel and Gretel and Rapunzel. I loved this tying up to the core and thought that this added the mystery that the reader needs to keep going through the book. Once again, it wasn’t about finding out what happens, but how it happens. If you don’t like predictable stories in general, this book may disappoint you, just as any other fairy tale retelling.

tumblr_m0nd5cyOzx1qdx814

The characters were easily the strongest point in this book, along with the technical stuff. Apolline is another strong female main character, THANK GOD, and Allard is perfect on his imperfection. He is a prince for good and bad and Apolline compensates that, haha! I loved everyone in the book, included evil sorceress Bryanna. It was so good to hate her, haha!

boo you whore regina george mean girls

Allard and his best friend whom I imagine several hot gay scenes with during the reading as I’m a sick person Beau White were the perfect double and both made it to My Bookish Boyfriends list! I know, two at once. I really need to start that new religion now, haha! Bookish girls all over the world will support me, I’m sure lol (If you’re new here and don’t know what the hell I’m talking about, please check this post. Laughter is a given, haha!)

Ahem, back to business. This is my third Sleeping Beauty retelling that I can recall and, by far, my favorite. I can’t wait to read the next volumes on The Fairytale Galaxy Chronicles and see just who Beau and Nathaniel, his younger brother, shall marry! Even though I’d love for Beau to fall in love with another man. *sigh*

thats just weird and freaks me out zoey deschannel new girl.gif

Sorry, I can’t seem to hold myself these days. More yaoi reading may be in order…

Overall, if you love Sleeping Beauty, kick ass females, swoon worthy boys, beautiful writing, futuristic and high-tech worlds and fairy tales, Princess of Tyrone is your book 😀

The Copper, from Bonnie Dee

Hello again! Welcome to the first of what I hope shall be many reviews for today! Last night I started and finished a lovely book from one of my favorite authors in the world: The Copper, from Bonnie Dee. Imagine how much I fangirled when Bonnie was kind enough to send me an ARC in exchange for an honest review and how much I suffered with my own booked bookish schedule (haha) and with the forced await until yesterday. And imagine how much my parents and offline friends suffered while I read the book and laughed hysterically or “awww-ed” or started to tap my feet on the floor in a nervous reflex. If you didn’t know already, I’ll tell you this: it’s a bitch to be near a reading fangirl.

anigif_enhanced-10232-1392852224-9

Before getting this review started, I just want to thank Bonnie again for the kindness and say that you made my night yesterday ❤ Now enough gibber jabber, let’s do this!

The Story

Lord Avery Wickersham is the epitome of a carefree wealthy man. He does what he wants when he wants and how he wants. Nothing stays in his way when he sets his mind into something. But not even all his determination is enough to fulfill his empty existence. No matter how many men pass his bed, how many alcohol, opium, money and games. Lord Avery Wickersham is a lonely man without a purpose in life.

Until he’s found in bed with other two men by a police raid.

Connor Tate is the epitome of the fair police officer. He follows rules on the clock, breathes justice and battles for a more equal world, righting all the wrongs he can. Nothing stays in the way of his determination – not even his illegal desire for other men. Connor knows that sacrifices have to be made in life for a greater good and he is very good at his work. No matter how much he craves a mate, intimacy or even just a friend. His duty will always comes first. Connor Tate is a lonely man with a firm purpose in life.

Until he finds Lord Wickersham in bed with two other men in a routine police raid.

As Avery and Connor’s worlds collide, both men realize that they won’t ever be themselves again. Avery doesn’t mind in the slightest that he has to play low to prevent further scandal in society – he was arrested, after all – and Connor can’t ignore all the feelings that a certain lord awoke in him with his noble acts towards his bed mates. And maybe with his winning smile.

But can Avery prove to Connor that they can work out as a couple? Can Connor get past his conscious and allow himself to be happy for the first time in his life?

The Analysis

Just remembering that those were my impressions and opinion as a reader 🙂

So, as you may have noticed, I love Bonnie Dee’s works. I have been pinning to read The Cooper since I found out about it in February and I knew it would be a blast. Bonnie knows her business when it comes to writing and character developing, so I knew I was in capable and safe hands. I just didn’t expected to be swept off my feet with the thriller vibes from The Copper. It was so refreshing to read a gay historical romance with this element! Really rewarding ❤ I also loved the dark and down-to-earth tone of the book, very realistic without losing the romance charm, you know? So I’m a satisfied, surprised and delighted fangirl at the moment, haha! I couldn’t give it any less than five stars!!

tumblr_inline_mke0tjxooR1rqh8d0

The narrative style is third person with switching points of view between Copper and Avery. Have I mentioned that this is my favorite one? Always, I know. Sorry for that. It was so nice to be able to dive deep in the minds of Avery and Copper. Both were such complex and lovely characters! I usually pick a favorite man among my gay couples, but I couldn’t decide between them! Avery and Copper were really like two faces of a coin: the fun, easy-going, wealthy and powerful gentleman that has everything and has nothing versus the serious, reserved, lower-classed and average man that has little money and the world in his head. And they are glued together by fate ❤

The plot had a thriller and mystery tone to it, but it wasn’t complex. We discover all key pieces very soon and the longing for the who is not something that will drive the reader; it’s the why and how to stop it that will. Powerful people are involved in corruption and awful illegal deeds, people that can’t be reached by the regular means of the law in the turn of the 19th London. The kind of people that walks free of punishment to this day because of a name, or money or all together. It’s not hard to guess what will it happen, specially if you, like me, it’s a fan of Dee’s works, so don’t set your standards for a story with a huge twist. You’ll be left wanting.

neal cracking
it happens, right?

The characters are the strongest point in the book, along with the writing style. As I mentioned, Avery and Connor are very well constructed and so real that it hurts. I really wished I could tell them everything they thought of each other and simply hug them and assure everything would be just fine.

i'm going to hug you and you're going to take it

All of this you already knew, but I never mentioned how well constructed the side characters were. Bertrand, a main side kick, is awesome in his own way – few people would have survived what he endured – and added a lot to the plot. I also enjoyed Barbara to the core (I won’t say who she is due to spoilers) and Avery’s employees. The villains were also something else, all business and danger. Seriously. I love Bonnie Dee.

let me love you

Now, the sex scenes. I have to say that in not a single moment they were sex scenes, that would be a wrong way to call it. Everything that Avery and Connor did was pure love, desire and passion. No frantic releases just because they both liked men. No desperate fucks to relief their hard reality. Every touch, every kiss, every caress was for something more, a feeling that both barely comprehended until much later in the book, but stronger and powerful as few feelings are: love. It was all about love. The love for the freedom of touching, the love for intimacy and their love as a couple. I wouldn’t say that there is instalove in this book, but I understand if some people face it like that. Sometimes curiosity and need are mistaken for love. Sometimes passion is mistaken by love and it is okay. It happens. But not in The Copper. Avery and Connor know that what they have is a mutual curiosity, the result of two different worlds colliding, but they don’t think of love at all. Not even when their feelings develop in such a fashion, for my utter dismay.

tumblr_m8z2hzA6CJ1rtzlzf
I mean, seriously? Not a single “I love you” at all?

I also enjoyed the historical accuracy of this book, for good and bad. It’s a turn of the century London, in which a reputation is all a man has in the end of the day, no matter his social status. I love historical romances, especially the sugared ones, so a more realistic scenery did wonders to my mind, haha!

Overall, this is another masterpiece on Dee’s resume, with a bit of everything: romance, historical, gay love, mystery, thriller and self-discovery. If you love any of those genres, you can’t miss The Copper, a book that won’t allow you to close it until you reach the end. Seriously. I know, it happened to me, haha!

5star

That’s it, thanks so much for reading! And thanks a lot again to Bonnie Dee for the trust in sending me another of her works ❤ I loved every minute of this reading!!

The Copper will be out tomorrow, so I’ll update the post buying links then 😀

Rowan and the Travelers, from Emily Rodda (Rowan of Rin #2)

Hi, there! I’m back with the review for the second volume of the Rowan of Rin series, by Emily Rodda: Rowan and the Travelers! You can already expect the review for the third book as well, haha!

rowan and the travelers.JPG
from my Instagram 😀

The Story

Rowan is now known on his village as the Mountain hero, but he feels far from it. It is true that the boy learned how to handle his fears on his last adventure, but he never stopped being afraid at all. To make things worse, the Travelers, the nomadic people, are back after only one year after their last visit to Rin.

The villagers of Rin suspect that the Travelers found out about Rin’s new plantation, made of a Mountain berry that Allum, a half-Traveler and half-Rin villager brought back from their journey, and want to steal it. Things couldn’t be worse.

That is, until Sheba, Rin’s old mad witch, has a vision involving a great danger involving all of them. As no one else besides Rowan listens to the woman’s advertences, soon enough Rin is in a deep sleep and the only awaken people are Rowan and Allum.

Now they desperate need the help of the Travelers, but… Can they trust each other?

anigif_enhanced-buzz-5351-1389581734-11

The Analysis

Just remembering that those were my impressions and opinion as a reader 🙂

I remembered only pieces of this book, so I was glued to my chair until I was finished with it, haha! Once again, I loved visiting Rin and spending some quality time with Rowan! This review will be short because of two reasons:

  1. Rowan and the Travelers is a five stars book;
  2. The basic structure of the book follows the previous book’s one.

The narrative style continues to be third person mainly focused on Rowan’s point of view, but with glimpses of other narrators. Rowan grows up so much from one book to another, but Rodda never forgets that he is just a boy, so it is wonderful.

The plot was more complex this time and had even more mystery than before. We are now introduced to the lands beyond Rin and the Mountain and to other people, like the Travelers and the people from Maris. As this is a re-read, I don’t know which part of my brain unconsciously remembered the plot twists and which part just guessed it, so I won’t try to analyze this aspect, haha!

finding nemo dory i forget things almost instantly.gif

As the travelers arrive, the reader meets new characters and has a chance to become closer with old ones. I decided that I really like John, Allum, Marlie and Sheba, haha! Also, I loved Zeel, she was so fearless! A good side kick to Rowan on this new adventure!

I still imagine Rowan as Ronan, the Grand Chase game character, by the way.

ronan grand chase
this fellow lol

As to Zeel, she was like a young Liv Tyler on my head. A girl can dream, right? Lol

The only thing that bothered me a bit on this volume is that Rodda seems to slow the story’s rhythm down in the beginning and I don’t understand why. Rowan is not being the overthinking type, but you feel that it is taking long to see anything happen, you know? And this is a problem in a book aimed for preadolescents 😦

I still loved the second volume of Rowan of Rin and I hold my ground that this is one of the best dystopian/fantasy books that I’ve ever read, though! If you like those genres, interesting characters, mystery and is not a fan of romance (that is non-existent on Rowan of Rin series so far), you have to give this series a go!

5star

Thank you so much for reading! ❤ Have you ever read a book by Emily Rodda?

Rowan of Rin, from Emily Rodda (Rowan of Rin #1)

Hi, again! I’m sorry, I’ve been reading a lot on the past few days and I can’t put up with my own rhythm to blog about them, haha! Today I bring to you another re-read: Rowan of Rin, from brilliant Emily Rodda!

rowan of rin.JPG
from my Instagram 😀

The Story

Rowan always felt a stranger on his own village. People in Rin were expected to grow up handling every physic aspect of life with perfection. But not Rowan. He was always too skinny, too thin, too scared… Useless. All the kids always made fun of him. The only thing that he never failed to do was to look after the village’s bukshas, a kind of breed between cow and sheep.

Until the bukshas’ lake rans dry and no one knows why.

Rowan knows he’s not a brave man as his father was before his death and that his own mother doesn’t believe in him to be strong, but he has to save the buskhas. The only creatures that ever believed him and never made fun of him. That trusted him.

So when he’s left with no other option but to travel to the Mountain with the other six villagers, Rowan decides that he will be brave for the bukshas.

Even if it scared him to death.

anigif_enhanced-buzz-5351-1389581734-11

The Analysis

Just remembering that those were my impressions and opinion as a reader 🙂

If you have read this post, you know that I LOVE Emily Rodda. I’ve read the whole Deltora Quest series (all three parts of it) and then I started reading Rowan of Rin. As always, Brazilian publishers took so long between a book and other that I stopped reading it on the second book and when I got myself the third book, I could hardly remember the story at all. Hence the re-read, haha!

Rowan of Rin was everything good that I knew I had felt on my first reading and more. With real and relatable characters, a wonderful setting and life-saver riddles, it had everything that I love about a fantasy/adventure book. Five stars again ❤

miley cyrus hannah montana hugging stuffed animal

The narrative is third person styled, from Rowan’s point of view most of time, but anyone can barge in during the book. Even Estrela, Rowan family’s buksha. I personally love Rowan, he’s an adorable kid ❤ He’s always true to himself, no matter how bad things look or sound. I’ll get there in a moment lol

Also, I love Rodda’s writing style. It’s so fluid, detailed and addictive! I’ve read this book in one single hour, as I didn’t remember how it ended, just some pieces of their adventure. (I also read the following book in one seating, haha! Only the third was spilt on two sittings as life is not fair.) I dare to say that the dystopian created and Rodda’s writing are the strongest points on this book.

Rodda’s main characters have a very good thing and a poor thing about them. They observe a lot and pay attention to so many nice things, but they tend to not think about themselves a lot. To this day, I’m not really sure of Rowan’s looks, haha! All people around him is easier to picture, but it’s like he’s a nice faceless boy. I mean, I imagine him just like the Grand Chase character thanks to the name, that is similar, but I don’t have a book official version, you know?

ronan grand chase.jpg
This is Ronan, from Grand Chase! I miss this game so much, the Brazilian branch was closed on 2014 😦

But there’s another catch to Rodda’s characters. Each one of them is one type of person that you’ll find on a society. There’s the optimistic, the grumpy, the honest, the cheater, the workaholic, the loner, the wise… And so on. Still, they aren’t boring one you figure out which type each one of them will be, as Rowan brings the best on each of them. He rarely judges people, as he is always occupied trying to understand them. You gotta love the boy.

let me love you

Also, I really wished to know his age. Oh, well.

I feel the need of highlighting the world that Rodda created for this series. It starts small, with only the village of Rin, the bukshas’ lake and the Mountain, but keeps growing through the series, showing one more piece of it on each following book. ❤

rin maps emily rodda.JPG
The first map is the only one present on this book. The other appears only on the next volume (picture taken by me from the Brazilian edition of the third book in the series, Rowan and the Keeper of the Crystal)

Overall, I think this is an ageless book. If you like dystopian, fantasy, adventure and doesn’t care about romance, you have to board my fangirling boat and read Rowan of Rin!

Thank you once again for reading! ❤ Have you read any books by Emily Rodda?

Object of His Desire, from Ava March (Sommerville Park #1)

Hi, there! Good Saturday to you and welcome to another Ava March book review! I decided to re-read one of my favorites from her on Thursday and, once again, I was breathless ❤ Of course that I’m talking about Object of His Desire, the first book in the Sommerville series *–*

object of his desire.JPG
from my Instagram 🙂

The Story

One week of pure torture.

That was all that Henry Shaw could say about his time on Sommerville Park, the propriety of marquis Arsen Grey. So much for a secret crush. Arsen was wicked, debauched and off all limits to Henry. And still, he had agreed to the marquis’ invitation to the blasted party. It was time to be over and done with his silly infatuation with Arsen. No use to love someone that would never love him back.

But can Henry so easily give up on such a gorgeous and impressive man?

One week of pure torture.

That was all that Arsen Grey, the marquis of Sommerville, could say about his party on his country house. So much for putting up a show for society. Especially when his eyes won’t leave one single person: Henry Shaw. The perfect man. Arsen was afraid that Henry would deny such invitation to his country house, but there he was, the only guest that hadn’t seen any kind of sheets action. It was time to be over and done with the wait. Henry Shaw would be Arsen’s. No use to keep waiting.

But can Arsen convince Henry that they can have a future together?

The Analysis

Just remembering that those were my impressions and opinion as a reader 🙂

As Dante would have said: “thy that here enters, leave behind all the hopes for a mature and impartial review”. He never said that. Not like that anyway. MOVING ON. My first book by Ava March was Bound by Deception and I read The Bound Series [review here!] in a rush after that, so my second series from her was Sommerville Park. For a long time, Henry and Arsen were my favorite couple from Ava, as they are just so sweet and caring and PERFECT ❤ (Okay, sorry, I’m fangirling like crazy again *takes a deep breath*). As I said several times before, it’s easy and hard to analyze a book that you’ve read so many times, as you already had so much time to overthink about it. Ava makes a point to show her reader how communication is important between a couple for them to work out and it was no different this time. In order to live their love, Henry and Arsen had to talk. And oh  dear, how did they talk… Without further ado, I declare that Object of His Desire is a five stars novella and that I really love it to the core ❤

The narrative follows March usual style: third person with switching points of view between Henry and Arsen. Ava works well into both characters personalities and he reader is left at a loss, as we need to tell Arsen how Henry feels and then we need to tell Henry how Arsen feels. Pride and fear are strong reflexes of the Regency society in which they live in, so the need of discretion on both parts breaks the reader’s heart. As a control freak, I prefer third person narratives, so I can always know what’s happening on both sides, haha!

oh mario if only I could control everyone the way I control you.gif
everybody has a bit of a Sheldon side, right?

The plot was simple, as most of March’s books. Regency era boy likes another boy, doesn’t know if loved boy likes boys too and decides to take a shoot. Also, all March’s books have a happy ending, which I really love, so there is no mystery there. All the focus goes to the couple, how they can work together and what they have to avoid to not break apart.

And the characters… I love both Henry and Arsen. Always did, haha! They are so different and yet so alike. Both are quiet people that long for love. There was no insta love in any parts, as their relationship had been growing for months prior the beginning of the book. It’s rewarding to see the moment when it finally blossoms and how they arrived there.

demi lovato give your heart a break lyrics.gif

Also, Henry is a darling. A really tall and big guy that likes to be the wallflower of the party and has an almost teen crush on the beautiful older guy. Of course he made it to My Bookish Boyfriend list ❤ I imagine him like one of those swimming guys from the Olympic season, you know? All size and gentleness *–*

david-gandy-advert.gif

And I imagine Arsen as being more refined and bored-looking, but slaying beautiful. He also made to my list, but I’m team Henry ❤ He lacks the honesty that Henry has – I’m fine with it, as he never lied to Henry, but you know what I mean. He’s… Jaded. Henry had his heart broken even more than Arsen and survived the experience without this eerie feel. So, yeah, team Henry, haha!

And then there are the sex scenes.

britney spears hot hot hot

March never ever disappoints and she makes a point to show that is perfectly okay for the couple to switch bed roles as they see fit. Also, as in all her works, there is so much love and desire involved on the love-making that the reader keeps sighing in pure satisfaction as the pages go. But I guess I’m too suspicious to say anything, haha! I love Ava too much, just as I love reading gay historical romances, oops!

Overall, if you like a really romantic couple, hot sex scenes, real and down-to-earth characters and Regency books, YOU JUST NEED AVA MARCH IN YOUR LIFE!
