RJ and VL nail it again with their latest ice hockey offering

35559022Ryker by R.J. Scott & V. l. Locey

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It’s not often I read a Young Adult romance because invariably I find myself rolling my eyes at the antics or – understandable given their ages – lack of maturity often used in the narrative to create plot tension.

However, as this is a spin-off from the Harrisburg Railers series and it comes from the pens of two of the finest writers of sports romance in the MM genre, I knew I’d get little of the above.

There is a wee bit of what could be described as irrational dislike when Ryker and Jacob meet, but the in-character explanations more than adequately provide reasons for Jacob’s feelings.

He’s also fairly quick to acknowledge it was his own unreasonable prejudices and a sense of misplaced inadequacy over their different backgrounds which led to his behaviour.

When they do finally move beyond friendship, the reader is given a truly beautiful tale of first love. They come to rely on each other for everything and, when the book brings us up to date with what’s been happening on the ice for the Railers, we see just how much Jacob has become Ryker’s solid foundation.

I loved everything about this book, apart from

**SPOILER**

having to read about poor Ten getting injured all over again

**SPOILER**

and I’m seriously looking forward to seeing where these authors take us next.

Scott’s story looks like it will be way more angsty and I’m now “bring it on”!

I loved everything about this historical romance

PromisesPromises by Ruby Moone

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love a good historical romance and every time I pick up a book by Ruby Moone she gives me just that and Promises is no exception.

It’s a truly gorgeous romance set in the English countryside at the time of the Napoleonic Wars and it just made my heart happy.

Sebastian and Charles are a wonderful pair and I loved the secondary characters and would love a book on just how they got together (hint, hint Ruby 😉 )

Everything about this wee novella is just gorgeous.

A love story which is as beautiful as the cover promises

Truth & BetrayalTruth & Betrayal by K.C. Wells

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Loved this, absolutely loved it. This is Kc Wells at her very best – an emotionally driven tale of overcoming what seems like the most impossible obstacle.

There’s hurt and healing in this, anger and passion, fear and hope and, ultimately, there’s two perfect souls connecting after a moment of utmost tragedy and finding a new future.

Jacob and Liam are wonderfully rich characters, the setting is drawn with a deft hand, you can smell the fried chicken and feel the dusty heat of these Southern towns.

There wasn’t one bit of this story I didn’t enjoy, even the parts that made me tear up, and I can’t wait to get Taylor’s story next!
