All the kink you didn’t know you wanted ’til you read it

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

/me fans herself – gawd this book is just all ends up deliciously wicked and I loved every bit of it.

Personally, for me, I don’t think anyone writes this type of slightly twisted, just a little bit ‘wrong’ but absolutely perfectly kinky story quite like Kat and Agnes.

This one pushes boundaries but in a totally respectful, but seriously erotic, fashion as Mike discovers all he wants to be is Momma’s good boy.

There’s only a couple of sex scenes but they’re worth every bit of the build up and the connection between the two grows rapidly after their chance encounter.

I would have loved this to be even longer and to see a bit more of Momma’s discipline for her naughty boy.

Mixed starter in this music centric romance

A Kind of Truth (A Kind of Stories, #1)A Kind of Truth by Lane Hayes

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3.5*

I’m conflicted with this one, parts of it I really loved, other bits irritated the heck out of me but, on balance, more of it was positive than negative.

Pros: The two MCs are wonderful constructs. Rand is fearless in both his desire for his band to be the best and in his convictions that he wants to do things right. He’s egotistical and a whirlwind of nature but, at the heart of him, it’s for the right reasons and when he falls for Will, he falls hard, with all the confusion of a young man in his 20s.

Will was an utter delight, a contrast of shy musical genius geek and sexy hot cross-dresser who really found his confidence in the cloak of a wig and some make-up.

Cons: Leah, sorry but she didn’t work for me at all as the protagonist, she felt contrived and irritating as Hell, simply there to provide the dramatic roadblock/angsty moment that the big HEA could hang off. It would have worked far more had it been spurned guitarist Terry who had been the villain of the piece.

Will’s parents – again just a little under developed and all on the surface, not enough was given to his relationship with them other than through the eyes of Rand. A little bit more conversation with Will about them would have helped.

Overall though, a great start to a new series with some really beautifully expressed relationship aspirations.
