An Alisa Review: Blood Wine (The Blood Bond Series Book 2) by Aimer Boyz

Standard

Rating:  4.5 stars out of 5

Symon’s not looking for new and different. He’s looking for dinner, and the guy at the bar looks like a five star meal.

Michael’s not looking for a sole mate. He’s looking for a few drinks, a few laughs, and hopefully, a lot of naked.

Fortunately, neither one of them finds what they’re looking for.

They find something better.

Something that will last forever and a night.

This was another great book.  I had to work to try and remember the last book since it had been awhile but I was so happy for Symon to find someone when he was so determined he didn’t need anyone.

I liked that Michael was so open and had no problem with Symon even when he knew what he was.  His family was another wonderful group of people and had no problem welcoming Symon and then again keeping their relationship with Michael after Symon saved him.

I enjoyed watching Symon debate with himself.  I think in some ways he deserved it for how he acted last time and how determined he is to stay separate from humans.  I liked seeing Etienne and Andrew again and how they care for Symon and quickly extended that care to Michael.  I look forward to more books by this author.

Cover art by James at GoOnWrite.com is great and I love the wine that made Symon famous among vampires.

An Alisa Review: A Little Blood (The Blood Bond Trilogy #1) by Aimer Boyz

Rating:  4 stars out of 5

 

a-little-bloodCan you handle forever?

Eternity comes with a price. Forever is a lonely word and Etienne Vaillancourt needs more than blood.

Andrew Delaney needs to pay down his student loans, maybe save enough money to fix up his relic of a Honda. No rush, Andrew’s got his whole life ahead of him.

But one lifetime isn’t always enough.

A chance meeting in a movie theatre is the start of a future neither man had thought possible. A future together … if they can handle forever.

 

I really enjoyed this book.  The main characters are wonderful with great secondary characters to enhance the story.  The author didn’t try to completely change how many would think of vampires, but also wasn’t too cliché either.

 

Etienne has been alone a long time, it’s better to keep his secret and to not get attached to his food.  However, Andrew completely throws him for a loop when they begin talking at the movie theatre.  They quickly grow to care for each other, but neither really know how they want to navigate their relationship.

 

Etienne and Andrew feel an immediate connection to each other when they meet that only grows with time.  This story was told from both characters’ points of view which gave me the opportunity to see both characters feelings.  Etienne would do anything to protect and be with Andrew, but is afraid of his reaction.  Andrew needs to decide if forever if what he really wants.  I can’t wait to read more stories in this series.

 

Cover art by James at GoOnWrite.com is perfect for this book.

A Jeri Review: Fireworks by Aimer Boyz

Standard

Rating: 2.5 Stars out of 5

Fireworks coverLike the Broadway show tune, Daniel Fine prefers his relationships to be for “One Night Only”— hot, hard, and gone the next morning. Daniel is looking to never, ever be in a relationship again. He’s been there, done that, and has the scars to prove it. And then he meets Steven …

Steven is looking for that forever relationship; someone who matters, someone to come home to.

So, of course, they want each other.

Daniel has baggage, eight years of baggage, to be exact. He has an ex-partner, rampant trust issues and a recently developed allergy to anything real, anything beyond the heat of writhing bodies. Steven is starting over; new city, new job. He has worked hard to recover from a hurt hidden in his past, but unlike Daniel, he still has faith in the possibility of forever.

Can mutual lust become mutual trust? Can for now become forever? Fireworks explores what it takes to be truly happy.

Fireworks by Aimer Boyz is kind of a mess, but underneath a good story.

Steven and Daniel are polar opposites; an Oscar and Felix if you will. One neat, the other a slob. One blonde, the other dark. One with an overbearing, meddling Jewish family, the other with bohemian parents whom he rarely sees. And yet, they are drawn together.

What I did really like? It was a good love story. We watched them evolve from strangers ignoring their attraction to each other to lovers afraid to admit their feelings for each other. They went through their issues- mistrust, old partners, meddling families and friends, but they persevere. There was angst but it wasn’t roll your eyes ridiculous.

The sex was steamy and yet realistic. And there was a lot of it! “My house” both made me chuckle, but also totally made sense from the character’s thought process. At times rough, at times tender, but always loving.
Ok, what I didn’t like. It was just too much. You meet probably 10 plus characters in the first chapter. My head was spinning. And while I like a bit of a story with the side characters, I feel like too much time was spent on them- especially his sisters. There was a ton of detail in some scenes, then turn the page and it is several months later.

I am going to recommend the book because of the main characters and the story. But it really needs a good editor.

Cover art Review.Although pretty basic, the cover with the two main characters really helps paint a picture in your mind of who you are reading about.
