Review: Stowaway

Stowaway by Becky Black

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

2.5-3 stars. Light, fun sci-fi story. I had issues with the characters though. I thought Raine went back and forth between wanting Kit to wanting to punish himself for wanting Kit for too long. And I think I'm in the minority here, but I never really warmed up to Kit.

The writing was good though and kept me engaged until the end. I will be trying more of this author's work.

I just read a book with a HFN ending (happy for now). I'm not too sure how I feel about it. On one hand, the book was very well written, but I was really disappointed with the ending. Actually there's a line that one of the characters think "it couldn't last forever, but in the moment, he was content."

It kind of ruined things for me. I'm definitely a HEA reader. I want to leave a book knowing my heros are going to be together and still going strong (and having hot smex!) long after I finish reading.

Meh...just my opinion anyways. I wonder how everyone else feels about this?

Review: Room at the Top

Room at the Top
Room at the Top by Jane Davitt

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

3-3.5 stars. Very good writing (and hot smex scenes!), but I'm more of a HEA girl than the HFN ending that we got. I actually felt sorry for Liam because I didn't feel that Austin and Jay really loved him. More like they loved the idea of having him around with the benefits of sex thrown in. I'm sure they were fond of him, but they definitely put their relationship first and with a threesome book, I felt they should be a bit more equal on the feelings with each other.

But, like any other review, that's just my opinion. :)

Review: Just What the Truth Is

Just What the Truth Is
Just What the Truth Is by Cardeno C.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

3 stars. Very sweet story about a man just coming out of the closet. I enjoyed reading in Ben's POV, because he was, as he put it, bat-shit crazy at times. :)

Review: Bareback

Bareback by Chris Owen

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I'll give this one 2 stars because it did make me cry like a freakin' baby. I read this awhile back and never reviewed because to this day I still get ticked off thinking about this book. (which is kudos to the author, I guess)

The beginning of this book was good, though I have to admit, I started skimming the sex scenes. There is just so many. And then, of course, the big scene that everyone knows about happens; I'm sorry, I don't think Jake would EVER be able to forgive Tor for what he did. (and for how long!) And the reasoning on why Tor did it? Just pisses me off when I think about it.

This seems to be on a lot of people's favorites shelf, but I just don't see it. Not recommended unless your a fan of cheaters and loads of smexxin' before that.

Watching 'Masters of Horror' (though I've seen this one before) and messing around with blogger. I uploaded a really old livejournal banner that I made with a sexy cat!boy. (gotta love the yaoi!)

Really wish I had the time (and motivation) to play with photoshop more often. My skills are pretty rusty! Maybe I should do some fanart...

Blah, blah, blah

I started this blog because I'm such a lurker on other people's blogs (oh hi! *waves*). Thought I'd start posting about myself here and there. Not that there's much of interest, but whatev. ;)

So, I'm 33 and a voracious reader of m/m romance. I haven't read much m/f (or mainstream) romance in quite awhile. (The last one I read I kept wondering where the other penis was in the love scenes!) My favorite genre is cop or paranormal.

I have two beautiful kids; 9 year old son (we'll call him 'boy' heh) and 22 month old baby girl, (we'll call her 'baby'). Madly in love with my fiance. We've been together for 13 years. (yeesh!) Planned on getting married last year, but actually got preggo first, so that's been put on hold for a bit. I work at a family restaurant (with ice cream) as a supervisor, waitress, cook, all around slave to the dollar. I do like my job, but omg, you meet some crazy ass people working in the service industry. (which I'll blog about here and there)

I recently moved. We're now leasing a house...which I love, love, love. We have a real fireplace!! You can find me on Goodreads or on Google +.

Wounded Cowboy by Jan Irving

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

3 stars. I'm enjoying this series. The characters are interesting and the smexxin' was hot. I did have a few instances where I wasn't sure which character was speaking at the time. I didn't connect with these characters like the others in the series, but I'm still looking forward to reading the next installment.

Review: Fairytales Slashed: Volume 3

Fairytales Slashed: Volume 3
Fairytales Slashed: Volume 3 by Megan Derr

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

4.5 stars rounded up to 5 because the good stories in this were just that good. :)

Rasnake - 5 stars (my favorite of them all)
Pretty - 2.5--3 stars. Started off good, but I didn't really like the last of it. The hero who changes also seemed to change his attitude (and not for the better).
He Shall Go To The Ball - 2.5-3 stars. Cute, but the just sort of ended. I would of liked to have seen what happened next.
Greenwood - 4 stars
Moth to the Flame - 4.5 stars. (this had some funny moments that were an unexpected bonus...the ninja's were awesome!)
