Fantastic western romance from Andrew Grey

dont-let-goI absolutely adored this romance from Andrew Grey which focussed on two men who needed to get out of the spotlight for a short time – one from the bull rodeos which just cost him his best friend, the other from a country music tour which had killed his creativity.

Everything about this worked for me. Both men were honest and upfront about their feelings, there wasn’t any messing around even though neither gave up who their more famous identities were until it was almost too late.

There’s trouble on the ranch which Zeke part owns with his father and the pressures from that force him back into the rodeo. For Robert, his agent and manager have to pull him out when his location is leaked and a boatload of fans and paparazzi descend on the ranch.

The drama in this book was all plot driven, nothing was put there just for the sake of it, there wasn’t any false dramady just to amp up the tensions, there’s no push/pull or will they/won’t they.

Zeke and Robert know they love each other, they’re just not sure how they can make their disparate lives mesh together. I loved them together, this book is sexy without being too much, they’re brilliant together and support each other through the difficult decisions.

There’s a great bunch of secondary characters and I loved the ranch setting. I’d happily read more of this pair!

Slow burn deliciousness from Anyta Sunday

Scorpio Hates Virgo (Signs of Love, #2)Scorpio Hates Virgo by Anyta Sunday

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

There’s slow burn and then there’s slow burn and then, beyond both is Scorpio hates Virgo. Because really, Scorpio and Virgo might just be absolutely perfect for each other.

Just like the first in this series, the UST is absolutely delicious, oozing out through every encounter between Percy and Cal.

The chapter dictionary definitions, like with Cal’s T-Rex T-shirts, echo the humour which floats alongside the interactions between these two and help to ease the narrative along while not much happens.

The background characters, again crossing over with book one, bring to life this wonderful setting where everyone knows each other and the neighbours look out for each other like it’s a 1950’s sitcom.

Percy took me a while to warm up to but then, once I could see why his outside was so bristled, it became clear just what a beautiful character he was. Cal, though, Cal I loved from the start, with his clear gaze and his biting wit and his love of family.

The Gnomey element of the book was absolutely fantastic, what a clever way to bring background and depth to the plot.

But, I still felt bits of the story could have had more work and elements were left unresolved, like what would happen with Frank, were Champney and Mr Rossiter a ‘thing’ and who was Josie’s baby daddy?!

Overall though, this was another gorgeous romance from Anyta.
