Hat Trick by Eden Finley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Exceptional. This one might have just sneaked ahead of Miller and Talon to be my favourite in what has been a truly outstanding series from Eden Finley.
Jet and Soren were just such a compelling pair. The use of flashbacks worked brilliantly to give the reader insight into the single previous encounter they’d had before each knew who the other was and the chemistry and connection between them was palpable.
From the moment they meet again on Fiji to the absolutely brilliant Epilogue, Jet and Soren were just a joy to read. There are sparks and sarcasm, there is love and there is ultimately a pair who just bring out the best in the other.
Sex is steamy and sensual and also sometimes funny and I love how these two can bring the other out of a funk. The tensions in the book are all created by external forces and I liked that Eden didn’t dwell too long with any sort of will they, won’t they over Jet’s ex-boyfriend and with Soren’s professional ice hockey career.
The rest of the gang are also on hand to bring the laughs and, if this is to be the final full-length book, I think Eden has brought the curtain down in some style.

Satin by K.C. Wells
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I adore K C Wells’ romantic novellas with a little bit of a twist. They’re sensuous, sexy but full of emotions and just the teensy bit of a hint of spice.
I also love books with a British setting and this one based in England’s capital with a Metropolitan Police detective constable and an aspiring dancer and nightclub singer who performs as a female impersonator is a delight.
There’s always a lightness of touch when K C writes this style, the emotions are heart felt and the angst is low but the situations still feel real.
We’re lucky here in the UK that our police forces are, in the main, supportive of their LGBT members and so Joel’s journey to admitting he was bisexual, which came with the odd ignorant and insensitive comment, had an element of realism grounded in truth.
It’s a lovely read and I adored Ross, his joy at life, his willingness to risk his heart even though he’d been burned in the past and his talent and love for his dancing.
It’s only not a 5* review because of the length, I wanted more and more of these two, they were a delight to read and I loved how Joel’s acceptance of his bisexuality was dealt with carefully and with honesty. He took some time but once he realised this was what love should feel like, he went all in.
