City Mouse by Amy Lane and Aleksandr Voinov


Country Mouse - Book 2

Even though I wanted to PINCH Malcolm on more than one occasion, I still adore him and Owen together. Two such different souls, yet the idea that they love each other - not so far-fetched at all. 

I have to say, for two authors with such disparate styles, Amy and Aleksandr blend their work seamlessly in this tale. I really hope that we get to see more of both couples! :) I loved this romantic story to bits - it does not disappoint!

The Courtland Chronicles by Cat Grant


The Courtland Chronicles - Book 1, 2 & 3

Oh, I wanted to give this more than the 3 Liked It stars, but I really couldn't. 

The problem is, I am having a helluva time figuring out why I should like or even care about either of the main characters - Eric, the poor little rich boy, and Nick, the wholesome guy who suddenly discovers/admits that he likes guys too. I could never warm up to either of them, never really understand what motivated them to have feelings for each other, never mind be the loves of each other's lives. I live in hope, however! 

And now the author has thrown Ally, longtime friend of both men, into the mix. She really sounds like a terrific gal and I find it hard to figure out why she should be so lacking in the romance department. 

This volume is really 3 novellas strung together and I have to admit, I was quite surprised that the last page was actually the last page. I thought maybe the epub file had truncated, it was that abrupt. 

I've done an awful lot of bitching, but I will say that this was an okay read. The writing itself is good and I am curious to see how this threesome is going to resolve itself. It was okay enough that I will pick up novella (I assume) 4 of the series at some point.

Touch & Geaux by Abigail Roux


Cut & Run - Book 7

As always, it's the dialogue that makes the Cut & Run series for me. It's what brings Ty and Zane to life. And Nick and Liam Bell and Kelly and Digger... well, you get my drift. 

This installment of Ty and Zane's adventure was filled with lots of introspection and heartbreak among the action, adventure and danger and is quite the roller coaster ride. What we're left with at the end is one helluva cliffhanger, IMO. Not a BAD one though - it's how these things should be - the story is complete in this volume but you're left salivating for the next part.

And let me state here, I love the Sidewinders! Bring on #8!!!

The Flesh Cartel - Brotherhood by Heidi Belleau and Rachel Haimowitz


The Flesh Cartel - Episode 6

I forgot to rate this when I finished it! Oops!

Again, another disturbingly stellar installment of The Flesh Cartel. Horrifying at times, disturbing, deep, heartbreaking. I'm so addicted. :)
