book-review-panda

Hello, dearies! Today we’re going to talk about of a book that has one of the prettiest covers I’ve seen in 2017: Meg & Linus, from Hanna Nowinski! I have received my review copy from Xpresso Book Tours through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review and this is it! Thank you, guys! And mega thanks to the wonderful Giselle ❤ ❤

Meg & Linus.jpg

summary-panda-no-background

Can friendship, Star Trek, drama club, and a whole lot of coffee get two nerdy best friends through the beginning of their senior year of high school?

Meg and Linus are best friends bound by a shared love of school, a coffee obsession, and being queer. It’s not always easy to be the nerdy lesbian or gay kid in a suburban town. But they have each other. And a few Star Trek boxed sets. They’re pretty happy.

But then Sophia, Meg’s longtime girlfriend, breaks up with Meg. Linus starts tutoring the totally dreamy new kid, Danny, and Meg thinks setting them up is the perfect project to distract herself from her own heartbreak. But Linus isn’t so sure Danny even likes guys, and maybe Sophia isn’t quite as out of the picture as Meg thought she was. . . .

From crowdsourced young adult imprint Swoon Reads, comes Meg & Linus by Hanna Nowinski, a fun friendship story about two quirky teens who must learn to get out of their comfort zones and take risk – even if that means joining the drama club, making new friends, and learning how to stand on your own.

summary-panda-no-background

Bullying is nothing new to Terrence Young. The teasing and harassment are constant. His family is less than understanding as well. To them, Terrence chose to be gay and complicate their lives. Their little rejections sting and cut him deeply.

But when the Deviance Act is passed, Terrence’s life takes a turn for the worse overnight. Under the new law, a mere look, a simple touch, or a small kiss in public could mean death. Terrence attempts to hide his orientation to survive. That is until a gang attacks him in a bar and Chase Martinez interferes.

Chase is gorgeous, kind-hearted, and he’s a rebel in the Underground—all qualities that attract Terrence so much there is no stopping the fall. Loving Chase might be dangerous, but Terrence is done living in fear and letting others dictate what is right for him.

However, on the night he meets lively Vedie Wilson, a local restaurant busboy who expresses his gender by wearing lipgloss and eyeliner along with his three-day beard, things change.

Gradually, Vedie and Mateo unite in friendship. Through a series of awkward encounters, the pair learns each other’s secrets. Vedie learns that an angelic face can front for a scarred soul. Matthew learns that the line between one’s masculine and feminine sides is blurred. Can they embrace the painful stories behind each other’s scars if they’re to find everlasting love?

Future Leaders of Nowhere, from Emily O’Beirne

book-review-panda

Good day, dearies! Welcome to my review for Future Leaders of Nowhere, from Emily O’Beirne ❤ One of my reading challenges for this year was reading more lesbian themed books, as everyone on all galaxies knows how I love me some gay romance and I’m so happy to be finding good romances in the field *–*

I received my review copy from YA Bound Book Tours in exchange for an honest review and here we go!

future leaders of nowhere.jpg

summary-panda-no-background

“Finn’s solid. Not in body, but in being. She’s gravity and kindness and all those good things that anchor.”

“Willa’s confusing. Sometimes she’s this sweet, sensitive soul. Other times she’s like a flaming arrow you hope isn’t coming for you.”

Finn and Willa have been picked as team leaders in the future leader camp game. The usually-confident Finn doesn’t know what’s thrown her more, the fact she’s found herself leading a team of highly unenthusiastic over-achievers, or coming up against fierce, competitive Willa. And Willa doesn’t know which is harder, leaving her responsibilities behind to pursue her goals, or opening up to someone.

Soon they both realise that the hardest thing of all is balancing their clashing ideals with their unexpected connection. And finding a way to win, of course.

Future Leaders of Nowhere is a contemporary LGBT YA story for older readers about what happens when two natural leaders are pitted against each other in a leadership game while on camp in the Australian bush. Future Leaders is about friendship and romance, and about learning when to take charge and when to let go.

The Talented Mr. Rivers, from HelenKay Dimon (End of the Line #2)

(Alternative title: the OH-SO-INDEED-talented and absolutely HOT Mr. Rivers teaches a lesson to his OH-MORE-THAN-GORGEOUS bodyguard and leaves me drooling on the floor)

Hi, once again! No, you’re not hallucinating. I am here again that soon. And I’m writing a review!

boom baby kuzco disney

I know, shocking! I had received The Talented Mr. Rivers, second volume of the End of The Line series, from HelenKay Dimon, right before my life decided it would be cool to live 24/7 on a rollercoaster from the publisher ❤ Thanks so much and I can’t believe that I actually am delivering this review on time! *–*

Again, thank you Loveswept for being awesome and sending me this in exchange for an honest review! You guys rock hard ❤ Oh, but before you start reading this review, why don’t you go take a look on the first book review? 😀

Mr. and Mr. Smith (End of The Line #1)

Now we can move on!

the talented mr rivers

the story

Will Rivers should be the poster guy for “flight of fight”. Born into a family of bloodthirsty and murderous people, all he ever wanted was to escape his family and his fate. After the CIA exploded his brother’s house on England, Will knows that his time is up and he must make a choice: to finally engage on The Pentasus, one of the most dangerous criminal organizations of the world, as one of the rightful heirs or to kill his own identify and never look back. It seems a pretty easy choice if you remove Hunter, his bodyguard, of the equation. Will can’t see his happily ever after without Hunter on it, but which side is he on? Will knows that he can trust Hunter with his life, but what about his heart…?

Hunter should be the poster guy for “the most fucked up person of the year”. After agreeing to help Fisher, Zach, Seth and other agents of the CIA to bring down the Pentasus, his life as an undercover bodyguard at the Rivers’ state turned upside down. He lost the good graces of the German intelligence – his actual employer – and is almost sure that his cover was blown with the Rivers. To make things worse, the only person that could help him to finish his mission and bury the Pentasus is missing: Will, the younger River’s sibling and his charge. Hunter won’t rest until Will is safe and sound again, no matter what CIA, BSD or anyone says. The question is: Hunter is doing this for the sake of the mission or for the sake of his heart?

the analysis

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

WHERE DO I BEGIN?! This book was even better than the first! I loved Will and Hunter to the core, they were a great couple! I also love that Will has this nerdy face, but in reality he is a killing machine *–* Oh dear, I always fall for the bad guys… ANYWAY. This book had all the elements that make me love a story. I do have some complaints about it, but nothing that made it less than a 5 stars reading for me ❤

tumblr kuzco disney bring it on.gif

The narrative is third person with switching points of view between Hunter and Will. This is my favorite style, as we can detach ourselves of the less dear protagonist if needed. Not the case on this book, as I loved Hunter from the first book, in which he has an important role, but wasn’t a main character, and Will grew on me instantly. On the end, I was totally team Will, haha! The writing style also is very good, as Dimon writes each character with such a strong will and mind that you can know whose side of the story you are reading way before names appear. Also, Hunter and Will’s story had a very different vibe from Fisher and Zach’s story and that is pretty amazing! ❤ Also, Dimon’s humor is very natural and easy to follow along, as both men say stupid things without realizing and then make fun of each other for that – just like you and me! I feel like anything from her that I put my hands on will work greatly ❤

tumblr disney kuzco oh whatever you say pumpkin you know what i like.gif

The plot was a bit obvious, but I have to admit that I didn’t start my read engrossed on the mystery, haha! I wanted a good action/adventure/romance book with great chances of a sort of happy ending. Also, both Hunter and Will overthink a lot. Like, seriously, it was tiresome in several parts. I get it, they both needed to build trust and blah blah blah, but I felt that Dimon overdramatized several parts without necessity. I would have been happier if they had argued more, talked more. ANYTHING BUT OVERTHINKING. You don’t need to keep repeating why you can’t be together, guys!

kuzco dont know dont care disney.gif

The characters are the most brilliant point of this book. Not only Hunter and Will, but everyone that makes an appearance is so well constructed, so real ❤ Seriously, Dimon is one of those authors who manages to build a character in your head without you realizing it. When you look, there they are, waving at you as if they had been there the whole time! But my favorite is Will. EVERYONE underestimates him.

tumblr kuzco disney let me guess you have a great personality.gif

And then Will goes and kicks everybody’s ass, Hunter included. He is very reasonable, but don’t step on this toes. Will may not be bloodthirsty, but he wouldn’t even blink before breaking a few bones ;D

tumblr disney patcha emperor new groove dont throw off his groove.gif

As it goes for Hunter, his name should be incarved on the dictionary, to define “trust issues”. No matter how many times Will proved himself, Hunter always had a suspicion. Needless to say, it got old, hahaha!

tumblr i have no idea youre the criminal mastermind not me kuzco disney.gif

Now let’s talk about stuff I didn’t really like, haha!

i got three good reasons why you should just walk away kronk disney.gif

We didn’t have enough time to understand Peter, Will’s older brother. The guy was sick on a whole new level, haha! I kind of wished we had known more of him before the end 😦 I think it would have been a good “woow” material, haha! I also wished that we had seen more jealous scenes between Fisher and Will, haha! Zach, Fisher’s boyfriend, slept hard with Hunter in the past and this had so much potential to generate fun scenes… Almost totally overlooked 😦 And the last thing: a freaking open end. I don’t really know what will become of Will and Hunter, how they will manage their future! I HATE OPEN ENDS OMG!

tumblr you threw off my groove kuzco disney.gif

The good thing is that I have many reasons to hope for another book in this series, thanks to all this openness, haha! Now we will take a moment to appreciate this beautiful cover that The Talented Mr. Rivers possesses, haha! ❤

I guess that now it’s all said and done, guys. You may be wondering only why I only used The Emperor’s New Grove gifs. The answer is because I needed a true diva to express all my feelings for this book.

kuzco disney make my omelet a meat pie.gif

Kuzco is the best Disney princess ever, HAHAHAHAHA! Just don’t tell Yzma, she’ll be upset that she’s second place both on the kingdom and on being a diva ;D

Allright, just to wrap this: do you like Action? Adventure? Hot guys? Hot guys with a very active sexual life? Geeks that can kill? TONS OF BEAUTIFUL MEN? THEN STOP READING THIS AND GO READ THE END OF THE LINE SERIES!

Murder Madness Such Sweet Sadness, from Jamie Blair & Dawn Rae Miller (Kiss Kill Love Him Still #2)

Murder Madness Such sweet Sadness  review banner NEW.jpg

Hi, there! Today I bring you a review for the second book in the Kiss Kill Love Him Still series, from goddesses Jamie Blair & Dawn Rae Miller, Murder Madness Such Sweet Sadness 😀 After a lot of begging on my part (I’m just kidding), YA Bound Book Tours was awesome enough to give me a copy in exchange for an honest review, haha! After my undying love for the first, I knew the second would be just as a blast and I wasn’t disappointed, haha!

murder madness such sweet sadness.JPG
from my Instagram 🙂

the story

Reggie, Haddie, Livie and Val. Four girls with only one thing in common: the desire to uncover Jackson Landis’ murderer.

Jackson Landis had dirt on all of them, but apparently, he wasn’t the only one. Someone that calls themselves The Fifth leaked Val’s secret to her parents with awful consequences.

Now the four girls have to find a way to trust each other and work together for the sake of the case, as the police is getting nowhere with official investigations. Val has nothing else to loose, but her best friend is still dead. Reggie is determinate to forget that she once loved Jackson and to be a new person. Haddie needs to know what happened to the only boy she truly loved to this day. Livie is hell bent on going until the bottle of Jackson’s lies and find out who really was her childhood boyfriend.

The game keeps going, the clock keeps ticking. Will they find out the culprit before The Fifth leaks any more secrets?

the analysis

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

I WAS SO GRATEFUL THAT I HAD BOOK TWO WITH ME WHEN I FINISHED KISS KILL LOVE HIM STILL! But I never thought I’d be left hanging and dying once again at its end… And I did. Now I have to wait until OCTOBER for book 3, omg!! I could seriously cry… I may have seriously cried at that information, haha!

Just as the first, Murder Madness Such Sweet Sadness had an explosive plot (almost literally), awesome characters, a mind-blowing end, a beautiful cover and a killer (haha) title! It would be impossible for me to rate it anything less than 5 stars!

The narrative followed the previous book pattern: it was first person with switching points of view between the four girls. And, once again, despite the whole extra insight and info to work with, I STILL AM NOT SURE OF THE IDENTITY OF THE KILLER! =O I NEED TO KNOW, OMG!

tumblr_mgu8ivYUlt1qmn01to1_500

I really like Blair and Miller’s writing style, they make each character sound unique and necessary each time they are in scene ❤ We got to see more of old characters, we met new ones… It was a rollercoaster from page 1 to 246, haha!

The plot was once again perfectly planned and executed, with the right amount of solved and new mysteries + twists for good and bad. I’m not a big fan of cliff hanger ends, but I made an exception to Murder Madness Such Sweet Sadness, haha! Once again, it was the strongest asset of the book. Plus, this title is amazing ❤

tumblr_mzpkp5jiVj1rb4ssdo1_500

The characters had a wonderful development, especially Reggie and Val. Reggie changed her life completely and Val was forced to face several of her fears, which left a huge impact on her. Haddie also grew up, but not as much as I’d have liked. But maybe on the next book, right? Haha! Now, Livie… Livie was a disappointment. She still only cares about herself and her life, so no growing up was felt here 😦 It is still hard for me to like her as I do the other three girls, but she’s not completely awful yet, haha!

This equation is still true in my head:

livie kiss kill love him still

Also, can I just say how afraid I am of Haddie’s father and Livie’s mom? Because THEY FREAK THE HELL OUT OF ME, OMG! And they are included on my suspects’ list, as they don’t help themselves, hunf.

Blair and Miller once again nailed the art of showing the daily life and transition of people leaving teenage and entering adulthood. They portray all the feelings, insecurities and problems we have on such age and add a murder to the mix. I still think it sounds a lot like Pretty Little Liars, but not in a bad way or completely copy cat way. Just in an essence way?

jennifer aniston rachel friends thinking nodding

Overall, if you like mystery, YA, awesome characters and writing and macabre stories, you have to start reading Kiss Kill Love Him Still series and start the countdown to October with me, haha!

The Quartermaster & The Marquis’ Son, by A. E. Kendall (Clash at Sea #1)

Hello, there! It’s me, again, back with a pirate romance review! Er, gay pirate romance, of course. You can’t expect less of me, right? Haha! It took me a shameful month to read The Quartermaster & The Marquis’ Son, first book in the Clash at Sea series, and I know why: BECAUSE I INSIST ON CHEATING MY MONTHLY TBR’s! Instead of taking 3 to 4 days as this book would require of me, I’d sneak it in every day that I had free time that wouldn’t be used reading another book. Last Saturday I decided to end this madness and properly finish the book. Poor Kendall had her mailbox full of fangirlings and hysterical attacks from me all month long and for that, I apologize, haha! And all of this after she being kind enough to send me this book in exchange for an honest review. Thanks so much, Kendall, and I’m sorry for being a pest!! HERE IS SAID REVIEW!

the quartermaster & the marquis son.JPG

the story

Michel is a nobleman in a quest. After a series of unfortunate events on his life (you saw what I did there), Michel decides to run off his comfortable and wealthy home in search of his older brother Alain, the only person on his family that acted the part. His brother was sent off to Porto Prince for allegedly bad behavior in society, but Michel is sure that their father was wrong about it and sent Alain off to make both Alain and Michel miserable.

Nothing would stop the French youth in his pursuit, not even a never-ending fever, seasickness during his trip from France to Porto Prince. Not even a tall, dark and handsome pirate that assaulted his ship. If he had to die fighting and desiring the man, so be it.

Galen is a pirate in a quest. After being wronged and humiliated (among other worse things) by another awful pirate captain, Galen is hell bent in pursuing the bastard all over the seas until he gets his revenge and peace of mind back. He knows he is doing the right thing for himself and nothing will stop him from getting back at the bastard.

Not even a very skillful and dashing Frenchman found at one of their targeted ships. If he had to die fighting and desiring the youth to save him and have him, so be it.

anigif_enhanced-buzz-5351-1389581734-11

the analysis

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

So, I took my sweet time reading this book. It was so intense and packed with adventure, action, romance and longing that I could have been found sighing and giggling every time I had my hands on The Quartermaster & The Marquis’ Son. I loved the characters’ construction, the writing style, the historical accurate setting, the plot, the twists, EVERYTHING! While I think it could have been shorter in some parts and wished we could have seen more about Galen’s past (like we did with Michel), it still was a 5 full stars read for me! ❤

The narrative style was my favorite kind: third person with switching points of view between Michel and Gale. This was crucial for us to understand and not hate Gale, as he is those silent, deadly and shy types, haha! You know, shy regarding feelings and demonstrations. Michel, in the other hand, is passionate, naïve and very forthcoming about any desire that he may have, so both completed each other and the story with the help of the switching povs.

The plot almost killed me, to the point that I e-mailed Kendall asking if I would have a heart attack on the end or if I could just grab a paper bag and wait for it to get better, haha!

sheldon breathing into bag nervous the big bang theory.gif

Poor Kendall having to put up with me, but the plot was complex, detailed and full of twits and turns. Some expected, others completely mind blowing. I found it the perfect combination, as those twists made me second-guess myself during the reading. I thought I could predict the outcomes, but could I? I had already been right and wrong before – not to mention all the times that I was simply swept out of my feet by not seeing things coming, haha! It was very nice to live on the edge with this book and made me feel like I had a breath of fresh air among my historical romances. Don’t get me wrong, I love the downward sugared ones, but this one was so different *–*

perfection

As this is the first book in a series, it doesn’t make sense to talk about loosing ends, so moving on 🙂

The characters were one of my favorite parts on this book! They were so real and alive that I wanted to hug many and punch many, haha! I loved Galen’s crew and friends, that consisted of Phillip ( ❤ ), John, Alex, Erich (I’m almost sure that is his name, I’m awful with names, haha!) and Davey. I also loved Captain Jack, I hope to see him again on the next book and loved Alain. I even sympathized with the guy that was Galen’s captain’s mate and plaything, Marcus. It’s so new to me to love and remember so many characters as I finish a book that I’m a bit emotional right now.

steve martin happy tears

Also, I felt these guys weren’t mere sidekicks. They were relevant and necessary to the story’s unfolding and I loved Kendall even more for that! ❤ Also, I got some new book boyfriends to add to my ever growing list *–*

Now, the main characters. OMG, WHAT WAS ALL THAT CHEMISTRY, ANGST AND LUST?! OMG, IT WAS SOO HOT!

britney spears hot hot hot

I loved to see how Michel and Galen’s feeling developed on their adventure and how there was no kind of instalove, only curiosity and lust in the beginning. Michel was a strong and stubborn bottom that would never allow Galen to stomp on him and Gale was always worrying about Michel’s well being and what was best for him. Seriously, I fangirled and squeaked  a lot over them *–*

I feel on the duty to inform that every sex scene present in this book was meaningful, beautiful, needed and carefully executed to always express how much the parties involved cared for each other and wanted the act. No vulgarities, no endless fucking for no reason. Just love. In all kinds and forms ❤

Also, I need to point out how amazingly well the historical settings were described and presented by Kendall. She always worried about all the small details, increasing a lot my knowledge on a typical day in a buccaneer’s life. It was a most pleasant way of learning!

Overall, if you like pirate books, hot sex scenes well positioned, a swoon worthy romance and awesome twists, PLEASE READ THE QUARTERMASTER & THE MARQUIS’ SON! *–*

Thanks so much for reading my review 😀 Also, I’d like to thank Kendall for being a sweetie and having gifted me with a copy of Alain & The Duke, a novella that works out as a prequel to The Quartermaster & The Marquis’ Son! *–* Can’t wait to read more about Alain!! And, of course, also thank you for this book in the first place, haha! ❤ I loved it and I’m sure many other gay book fans will love it too!!

The Hidden Life Teaser 4

excerpt

It was close to one o’clock when I pulled up at the mid-century bungalow that Colin rented, happy to see his car already in the driveway. I bounded out of the car and hurried inside, dropping my bag just inside the door as I catapulted myself toward him on the couch, where he sat playing video games, wearing only a pair of basketball shorts.

“Ugh!” he grunted, when I landed on top of him, a teasing smile playing at the corners of his mouth while he wrapped his long, brawny arms around me. “What’ve you been eating, dude? You trying to bulk up like my linemen?”

“Gotta keep up with your growing ass so you don’t crush me,” I countered, my eyes fixed on his sexy mouth, dying to taste it.

Colin smirked roguishly then rolled us to the side so I was laid out on the couch and he was suspended over me, licking his lips like a lion who’d caught his prey. My cock stirred to life.

“Crush you like this?” He released a little of his weight from his arms onto me, pressing our thick bulges together.

I nodded, anticipation blazing through my veins. “Yeah, like that.”

Lowering his face down to mine, the tips of our noses touching as our gazes locked on each other, he rasped, “I thought you liked it when I pin you down and take what I want.”

My entire body clenched at his words, desire radiating inside me from head to toe. Throbbing, pressing against my zipper, my cock was instantly rock-fucking-hard.

“Maybe,” I panted, not wanting to submit to him quite yet as I used every last ounce of willpower I had not to shamelessly roll my hips against his. “Maybe not.”

A feral growl emanated from his broad, shirtless chest as he pushed to his feet, taking me along with him, thrown effortlessly over his shoulder. Stomping his bare feet full-steam ahead across the old hardwood floors, Colin carried me to his bedroom, slammed the door behind us, and tossed me onto the bed.

“I’ll show you what maybe is like,” he warned, while stalking toward me, lust clouding the green in his eyes.

I was in heaven. I loved playful Colin.

“Maybe you will,” I goaded him, as I pulled my hoodie and undershirt over my head together and tossed them onto his floor. “Maybe you won’t.”

His shorts were off in a matter of seconds, and as soon as he reached me on the bed, my jeans and boxers were too. He crawled on top of me, forcing my head back onto the pillows, and caged me in with his perfectly chiseled, enormous naked body. I sucked in a sharp breath as our cocks met, the heat from his flesh searing mine.

“It seems like the longer we go without seeing each other, the cockier this sweet little mouth gets,” he rumbled, nibbling at my bottom lip. “Seems we may need to do something about that.”

My pulse spiked. I forgot how to breathe. My vision glossed over.

When I was with this Colin, I was on top of the world. No matter how much everyone else thought they knew him, no matter how many articles and newscasts had been centered around him, no one else knew the Colin I knew. Not his teammates. Not his coaches. Not his parents. Not even Monroe, who I knew he loved without question.

I was the only one who got to experience his passion. His intense craving to please and to be pleased. His overwhelming love. The refuge I found in the strength and security of his arms was empowering. Life-changing.
