A Free Dreamer Release Day Review:A Bond of Truth (Sensual Bonds #2) by K.C. Wells

Standard

Rating: 2.5 stars out of 5

a-bond-of-truthSequel to A Bond of Three

It is twenty years since the Bond of Three returned to Teruna. The kingdom of Kandor, once Teruna’s enemy, seeks help and sends its finest warrior, Dainon, on a diplomatic mission. A solitary man since his wife and child died, Dainon is unable to explain why an encounter with a young man on a beach rocks his world to its core.

Prince Arrio of Teruna has always been attracted to men but has never acted on it—until he meets Dainon. Headstrong Arrio goes after what he wants, despite his fathers’ advice. But when Prince Kei arrives unexpectedly, Arrio finds himself drawn to both men. Is history repeating itself?

Prince Kei has his first taste of freedom and is shocked when the visions that have plagued him since childhood become reality. The three men embark on a voyage of discovery. No one has foreseen the day, however, when the arrival of a stranger threatens to destroy their bond.

Part two of the “Sensual Bonds” series was very similar to the first book.

Again, there are three men falling in love with each other. Once again there’s drama because three men in one relationship can’t possibly be right. And once again, they are destined to be together.

Especially Arrio’s hesitation about falling in love with two men at the same time struck me as odd. His three fathers (Tanish, Sorran and Feyar from book one) have shown him all his life that it most definitely is possible to love two men at once. And Kei should know better than that too, since Sorran is his older brother and he also saw the bond of three working out very well.

Don’t worry, there is no incest here. While Kei is Sorran’s younger brother and Arrio refers to Sorran as his papa turo (turo meaning something like teacher), those two aren’t related. His fathers found him and his dying mother when he was only a few days old.

While the love is once again instant, the sex takes a lot longer to happen than it did in book one. I actually liked that better because it gave them time to really get to know each other.

Still, the whole thing just was too fluffy for me. I guess this series really isn’t for me.

The cover by Garrett Leigh and Dan Burgess looks a lot better than the cover of book one. The models are maybe a bit too old, but otherwise I like it.

A Free Dreamer Review: A Bond of Three (Sensual Bonds #1) by K.C. Wells

Standard

Rating: 2.5 out of 5

a-bond-of-threeIn the kingdom of Teruna, the red-cloaked Seruani teach the Terunans the art of love. Taken from their homes at seventeen to be trained, they are shunned as outcasts by society and considered the lowest of the low. So when Prince Tanish falls in love with the Seruan Feyar, the man who took his virginity and the only one to share his bed, he is not about to declare that love. No one can ever know, because the consequences would be too painful to consider for both of them.

When the king of Vancor visits Teruna, he promises that his son, Prince Sorran, will marry Prince Tanish to solidify the alliance between the two kingdoms, with the proviso that the virginal Sorran is instructed in the art of pleasing his husband-to-be. When Tanish’s father chooses Feyar to be this instructor, the lovers decide Prince Sorran must be taught that this is to be a marriage in name only….

A resentful prince, unwilling to share his lover.

A resentful Seruan, unwilling to share his prince.

And the shy prince whose very nature sparks changes in the lives of all those around them.

Teruna is about to change forever.

The blurb tells you all you need to know about the plot. Still, I had expected a different kind of story. There was far more fluff and a lot less angst than I expected.

Sorran is the shy, virgin prince. He cried way too much for my liking and seemed extremely immature. It’s love at first sight for him with both Tanish and Feyar. Just like it was between Tanish and Feyar, and the two of them instantly fell for Sorran as well.

There was a bit of drama about Tanish and Feyar accepting their feelings for Sorran, but not all that much. They are destined for each other, after all. The whole issue was solved a little too easily. A lot of potential suspense and tension was lost here.

The rest of the plot is, in varying degrees, cheesy declarations of love and quite a bit of porn. Two minor bursts of conflict come up, but the solutions are once again very simple.

Sorran is an only child, as is Tanish. They’re the sole heirs to their kingdom. I never understood why they should marry. It just doesn’t make sense. Why would Sorran’s parents give away their only heir? And while it’s nice that homosexuality is perfectly acceptable in this universe, the natural lack of an heir from such a relationship should at least have been discussed.

It seemed very odd to me that Tanish, being the crown prince, wouldn’t know how the Seruani are chosen. Surely the future king has to know about such an integral part of his people’s society? Again, this would have needed more discussion.

The relationship ultimately revolved around Sorran. It was always Tanish and Feyar focusing on Sorran. That really bothered me. It just didn’t seem fair.

All in all, this was just too fluffy for me. Problems weren’t discussed properly and solutions were too easy. Just not my kind of book.

Cover: Just like the book, the cover isn’t really for me. Feyar looks more like an assassin or evil wizard than like a prostitute in that cloak.

A MelanieM Release Review:This Wish Tonight (Mischief Corner Collections #2) by Mischief Corner Books and authors Wendy Rathbone , J. Scott Coatsworth and Gregory L. Norris

Standard

Rating: 4.5 stars out of 5

this-wish-tonightWarmth, family, good cheer? Not everyone associates these things with the winter holidays. For some, it’s a time of longing and reflection. Mischief Corner Books invites authors to create stories set during the holiday season and centered on the fulfillment of a wish or desire.

 

I love collections.  They often provide a quick introduction to new authors or give you a variety of stories that cross genres such as This Wish Tonight does.  Mischief Corner Books delivers a collection which includes science fiction, zombie apocalypse and a contemporary mystery.  Not bad for the holidays!  And romance too.  Here they are with my mini reviews and ratings!

Eve of the Great Frost by Wendy Rathbone – 4.5 stars

Remi has prepared for over a year to be the king’s gift at the annual celebration of the Eve of the Great Frost on the planet Niobe. Twelve men, taught under the tutelage of the Pleasure Master, hope to be the one (or one of several) chosen to spend an erotic night with the mysterious alien king who always wears a mask. But when Remi’s turn comes to be presented to His Majesty, everything goes wrong from a costume malfunction to breaking protocol. What happens next is a shock, and a night he will never forget.

I loved the world building here and really wanted to know so much more.  It was an intriguing picture Rathbone built up in my head, especially one such as me who knows her Prime Directive (yes, geek flag flying).  In a short amount of pages, she had their characters, built their relationship, and  made it real. And very sexy, erotic.  Khan would have approved.

Wonderland by J. Scott Coatsworth – 4.5 stars

Zeke is a loner his late forties, living in a small cabin in rural Montana. Nathan has been traveling across country on foot since the zombie apocalypse, dealing with his OCD in an empty world.

Zeke just wants someone to love. Nathan just wants to be home again.

Fate brings them together in a winter wonderland, but their own fears and baggage may tear them apart.

Is there still hope for love at Christmas, at the end of the world?

Coatsworth came up with an altogether different sort of apocalypse in Wonderland.  Still meant the end of civilization and most of humankind.  Zeke is thinking he’s the last one left until Nathan shows up.  What follows is tender, real, and loving.  Its a beautiful story of hope, recovery and weirdly enough romance.  Coatsworth has taken a familiar theme and made it his with these wonderful characters and an ending that leaves you smiling and full of wonder.  Yes, I loved it.

Fear of Fire by Gregory L. Norris – 3.5 stars

Glass Artist Lucius Price works desperately to create a holiday symbol intended to help the town of Villatopia heal from a rash of unsolved hate crimes against gay men. When he is targeted next and his studio set ablaze, handsome firefighter Oscar Ramos rescues Lucius from the flames, creating a different kind of fire during an unforgettable Christmas.

Fear of Fire works for most of the story.  I loved the men, especially Lucius Price the glass artist.  Norris fits enough of glass working into his story to make Lucius and his art real.  I wish that Oscar and the firefighters felt the same.  Perhaps  the small town and their firefighters could account for the inconsistencies that pop up here but in this time and place, they and the procedures followed are hard to overlook.  As much as I loved this couple, the rest of the story felt unrealistic enough to bring the rating down.  If you are looking for romance alone, then this couple might be just your thing.

**Please Note: The stories in this anthology will not be released individually.

Genres: mm romance, holiday, Christmas, gay science fiction, gay contemporary

 Cover Artist: Freddy MacKay.  The cover is cute, not sure it fits in with the wide disparity of all three stories.

A MelanieM Release Day Review: Catch and Release (The Release #3) by B.A. Tortuga

Standard

Rating: 5 stars out of 5

 

catch-and-releaseDakota Landry just got out of prison after twelve years. If anyone can understand how that feels, it’s his new friend, Sage, who is determined to help him get used to life on the outside—and believes Dakota didn’t commit the crime he was in for.

Jayden Wilson is a former prosecutor who agrees to look into the case at the request of Sage’s lover, Adam. He sets out to prove Dakota is just another “innocent” ex-con, but once they meet, Jayden is more and more convinced Dakota just didn’t do what everyone thinks he did.

Trouble follows Dakota, and nothing is easy as he struggles to figure out how to live, now that he has choices. And Jayden isn’t sure how Dakota, or any lover for that matter, fits into his life. Their path from friendship to romance is a slow one, but Dakota begins to believe he deserves a chance at life, and Jayden falls a little more for Dakota every day. Now they just need to tell each other how they feel.

The Release series from BA Tortuga has followed individuals, in this case a young man, released from prison and their adjustment to freedom.  The second story, The Articles of Release (The Release #2), varied slightly from this format, in that the person was adjusting to civilian life who came into the circle of friends containing the original couple of Adam (Win) Winchester and Sage Redding from Terms of Release.  But here in Catch and Release, Tortuga returns to her heartrending baseline of a teen thrown into prison, in this case an innocent, for twelve years on a trumped up case of rape.  This author doesn’t shy away from exactly what those years entailed for Dakota.  We may not get the raw details, but what the author delivers is gut wrenching enough.  Laundry whore, scars, first night in prison.  Its enough to make you run and find the commode yourself.  And it should be as these facts of prison life are delivered matter of factly by Dakota when asked.  Yes, there are some nightmares but after 12 years?  He’s had to come to terms. Well, you’ll get the picture.  Now its freedom that’s scary, returning to a life of choices, change and constant judgement.

This story and these characters pack an emotional punch that hits you not only in the heart but then goes for the mental hit too.  It makes you think about your own judgements about the judicial system and prison sentences.  About the percentages of innocent people that actually are incarcerated and the high price they pay.  Dakota comes alive here and stands in for all those who have paid such a price.  Trust me when I say his story will make your heart weep with the pain his character has suffered because you know that there are those who have gone/are going through the exact same thing.  Tortuga has done her research well.

As Dakota struggles through his adjustment, with help from Sage, Jayden, and others, you are standing along side him, hoping for a better life and maybe even justice.  I liked how frank the discussions were between Dakota and Jayden, nothing hidden.  How could there be when the scars are carved into your body?  And your files something Jayden has access to?  No, everything here is adult, realistic and believable.  Even some parts at the end, where I wanted to say, ‘no, you can’t leave it at that’, made me acknowledge the fact that things don’t end up with everyone getting the answers they wanted, all tidy and neat.  Life’s not like that.  And for this story to stay raw, gritty and real, that ending had to stay that way too.

Don’t get me wrong, I loved that ending.  You will too.  But some of you will want it to be perfect. And it can’t.  As    Dakota would say, you can’t take back 12 years in prison.  That doesn’t go away.  He will always be an ex-con with those experiences in his head and on his body.  Fair?  No, but that’s life.  What’s joyful is the journey that Tortuga had him make after prison that led to love and a better life.

The Release series just keeps getting better with each story.  I can’t recommend Catch and Release (The Release #3) and the series itself highly enough.  That goes for B.A. Tortuga too.

Cover art by Bree Archer is alright, but it seems more generic than pertinent to the story and character.

A MelanieM Release Day Review: The 12 Days of Hipster (The Avona Tales #2) by Raine O’Tierney

Standard

Rating: 5 stars out of 5

the-12-days-of-hipsterSequel to Bowl Full of Cherries

Last Christmas, Tyler Lang accidentally accepted David Griffith’s invitation for dinner. Yes, it was an accident. See, hipster (don’t call him that!) Tyler doesn’t date guys, and even if he did, he certainly doesn’t date jocks. A rude and hasty exit right when the date was getting good left things awkward between them.

David Griffith isn’t really a jock. Well, he’s a former athlete who loves sports, but “jock” has a certain connotation that doesn’t quite fit the intelligent, hardworking store owner. A jock wouldn’t have given Tyler Lang the time of day. But even after that little, ahem, stunt with the fire escape, David can’t stop thinking about the hipster a year later. Which would be fine if fate didn’t keep butting her nose into their business, making it impossible for the jock and the hipster to avoid each other this Christmas.

A hilarious holiday romp, set to the music of the Winter Sounds.

Wow, how did I miss this series from Raine O’Tierney? The 12 Days of Hipster is the second story in The Avona Tales and now I’m playing catchup because I love, loved this book!  Not only did the author give me one of the most enjoyable tales this December but she also introduced this fellow Christmas music “whore” to the wonderful lyrics and melodies of The Winter Sounds.  Be still my heart.  This story moves to their music!

The first story (which I missed and will be going back to pick up) was  about Tyler Lang’s brother Rell and his best friend, Owl.  Here, Tyler, now living with them, and very hipster indeed, accepts an invitation from David Griffith, a multifaceted individual in jock’s clothing.  This is their story, a funny, tumultuous path to romance and love.

Tyler is a wound up hipster type complicated person.  Full of worries about implications over how he’s perceived from actions to outerwear, he’s really sort of frail, always ready to sprint away at the first signs of emotional commitment and serious decisions that involve him and his heart.  And run he often does, literally.  He’s exhausting to himself, his brother (with whom he’s often combative at worst and at best irritating), and best friend, Owl, who’s trying to stay calm and non-judgmental.  I loved this character.  So human, with all his faults, beard, twirly mustache, suspenders and well, all things hipster.  You just can’t help it.  And neither can David.

David Griffith, another splendid main character, easy to love and full of his own issues, some of them the same as Tyler’s.  Watching these two adjust to each other, its a dance that pulls you into their lives and circle of friends.  You also get the problems and issues happening in the lives of Rell and Owl.  Argh, I need their story.   And its Christmas, a time for family, and tension, and stress, and love.  And Raine O’Tierney gets that and its amazing.  Plus its puts to the soundtrack of The Winter Sounds (yes I pulled it up on SoundCloud and it became my companion for this read just as the author mentioned in her foreword).

The 12 Days of Hipster (The Avona Tales #2) by Raine O’Tierney is a must read story  I absolutely recommend.  Its full of love, romance and the holiday spirit.  Its funny, has moments of sadness and joy, and a soundtrack to set you a singing!  Plus now I have another book to go search out and read.  Yes, it does work as a standalone but after reading it, who would want to pass on the first?  Not me.  Happy Holidays!

Cover art by Paul Richmond who couldn’t have gotten every aspect more perfect if he’d waved a wand.  From the characters to the hawk, its spot on.  A favorite of mine this year.

A Stella Advent Calendar Review Day 19: Resolutions (2016 Advent Calendar – Bah Humbug) by Emma Keene

Standard

RATING 4 out of 5 stars

resolutions-by-emma-keeneAs an advertising executive, it’s Logan’s job to sell people holiday cheer, and he’s good at what he does. But deep down, Logan hates everything about Christmas, so he worries that his crush on the hot baker who loves the holidays is a recipe for disaster.

Last year, Logan saw Ryan at a holiday party Ryan was catering, and the attraction was instant. In a drunken moment, Logan made it his New Year’s Resolution to ask the pastry chef out. But another year has slipped away, time is running out, and Logan’s assistant demands he collect on his resolution. Can Logan find the confidence that usually comes so easily to him? And if he does, will Ryan have any interest in spending the holidays with a man who doesn’t share his enthusiasm for the season?

Resolutions by Emma Keene surprised me, it was very romantic in my opinion. I so loved how, although the strong attraction both MCs felt since the first time they laid eyes on each other, they waited a whole year to act on it. Yep maybe a little too much, Logan should have moved on Ryan a little earlier, and of course they lose a year in their potential life together. Still I found this slow burn, their meetings and not so subtly looking for each other, so romantic, I was conquered. And just a kiss was worth as a hot sex scene.

One of my favorite stories of this year DSP Advent Calendar.

The cover art by Paul Richmond is awesome, nothing new cause I love everything he draws, I simply like his style.

Community of Storytellers by Robert Winter

I spent nearly twenty years as a lawyer in large international law firms, where all my writing was adversarial and designed to score points. I crafted arguments to persuade. I molded law and facts to tell the story I wanted a judge to know, and I asked her to give my client the ending it sought. My audience was usually limited to other attorneys in my law firm, a client, a judge or her law clerks, and opponents who wanted to find flaws in my analysis or spin a different story. It was lucrative, but it never satisfied my creative desires.

When I wrote September, I finally got to tell a story from beginning to end without worrying about whether it appeased a client or convinced a judge. I thought that would be the best thing about going from lawyer to author. I was wrong.

The biggest and most pleasant surprise about having my first novel published has been to discover that I am now part of a community of storytellers who support each other and want us all to succeed. I was lucky enough to attend GRL 2016 in Kansas City, my first M/M conference. The buzz on Facebook before I attended had me somewhat alarmed at the enthusiasm. As an introvert, I thought I would likely spend the days hiding in the back of the room for various panels, and maybe work up the courage to ask one or two favorite authors for an autograph. Instead, from the moment I arrived at the hotel, I felt I was part of a conversation. In a large room filled with writers I quickly found connections. BG Thomas signed books for me. Jordan Hawk talked to me about Whybourne and Griffin and what was coming next. Hank Edwards suggested which book of his would make a good starting point. I couldn’t believe how easy it was to talk to these published authors!

Then there were the readers. I met several people who were fanboying and fangirling as hard as I was. They were there to meet their favorite authors, to be introduced to new ones, to find out what books are coming out soon, to play bingo and even to watch ice hockey together. I realized quickly that even those readers who claimed they had no writing talent themselves actually did tell a story, each time they discussed their favorite books and what those books meant to them at different times of their lives.

It just kept getting better. I met freakin’ Alexa Land, whose Coming Home was one of the first M/M books I ever found, and whose entire Firsts and Forever series I’ve read through at least twice. I met CJane Elliott and got advice on how to promote my book. I went for coffee with BG Thomas and Pat Henshaw. I took pictures with Brandon Witt and Devon McCormack. It was like the best high school reunion, where everyone was excited to see old friends and to make new ones. I have been out as a gay man for more than 30 years, but I came away from GRL convinced I had found a new tribe.

As the release date for September approached, many of the authors and readers I met posted comments about my book, or gave me advice, or just traded funny stories. I got release day reviews, guest blog invitations, feedback on Goodreads. I experienced the joy of readers loving my characters, and finding emotional satisfaction in my story. (Does it make me a bad person that I love the reviews that mention I made them cry?) Remarkably to me, I recognized the names of some of the readers and reviewers from having met them at GRL, months before my book was out.

What I learned from this experience is that our M/M community is much bigger and more passionate than I ever imagined. The writers and readers and bloggers and reviewers and cover artists and narrators and publishers all do it because they love M/M. More, they want to spread that love because they want to keep reading and telling these kinds of stories.

I’m energized by the passion that this community creates, and I’m lucky to have found my way home.

Book Blurb

David James is smart, successful, handsome… and alone. After the death of his lover, Kyle, from cancer, he buried himself in his law practice and the gym. At forty-eight, he is haunted by his memories and walled off from the world. When David injures himself working out, he’s assigned to Brandon Smith for physical therapy. The vibrant young therapist is attracted to David and realizes he needs a hand to get back into dating. What begins as a practice coffee date escalates to friendship, passion, and maybe something more, as they navigate a new relationship in Washington, DC, and the gay mecca of Provincetown.

But David remains trapped behind the barrier of fear and guilt. Will he remain loyal to Kyle’s memory if he moves on? Can he and Brandon manage a twenty-two-year age gap? Brandon thinks he understands David’s concerns, and for him, the answer to those questions is yes. He wants to be with David, and he believes he can overcome David’s barriers. But Brandon fails to account for the world’s reaction to a handsome young man attached to an older, wealthy lover. David’s memories, Brandon’s pride, and an unexpected tragedy might cost them something very special.

About the Author

Robert Winter is a recovering lawyer who likes writing about hot men in love much more than drafting a legal brief. He left behind the (allegedly) glamorous world of an international law firm to sit in his home office and dream up ways to torment his characters until they realize they are perfect for each other.

Robert divides his time between Washington, DC, and Provincetown, MA. He splits his attention between Andy, his partner of fifteen years, and Ling the Adventure Cat, who likes to fly in airplanes and explore the backyard jungle as long as the temperature and humidity are just right.

A solitary man since his wife and child died, Dainon is unable to explain why an encounter with a young man on a beach rocks his world to its core.

Author Bio

Born and raised in the north-west of England, K.C. WELLS always loved writing. Words were important. Full stop. However, when childhood gave way to adulthood, the writing ceased, as life got in the way. K.C. discovered erotic fiction in 2009, when the purchase of a ménage storyline led to the startling discovery that reading about men in love was damn hot. In 2012, arriving at a really low point in life led to the desperate need to do something creative. An even bigger discovery waited in the wings—writing about men in love was even hotter….

K.C. now writes full-time and is loving every minute of her new career. The laptop still has no idea of what hit it… it only knows that it wants a rest, please. And it now has to get used to the idea that where K.C goes, it goes.

And as for those men in love that she writes about? The list of stories just waiting to be written is getting longer… and longer….
