Lily pulls on all the heartstrings with this second chance romance

54638086._SY475_After Felix by Lily Morton

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I swear, every time I think I’ve found my favourite couple, Lily Morton writes me another pair that steal my heart.

Now, Caden and Malachi will never lose their place at the top because Hey, Lily wrote me a rare breeds farmer and so duh! (see Spring Strings)  but Felix and Max are now very firmly ensconced in second place.

I loved how this book took a different narrative style than most of Lily’s others, giving us a very definite book of two halves.

The first concerns all the build up to what we know from her other books, was a very painful split for Felix when Max broke his heart.

Here we get to see just how that came about and it was bittersweet to watch them falling in love without either of them being able to seize the moment and admit it.

The second half of the story gives us them back in each other’s orbits and, including flashbacks to scenes we’ve encountered from other perspectives in other stories, it really worked well to introduce the slow build up to them finding their way back to each other.

There’s the usual snark you’d expect from Lily, I’d nearly choked to death before the end of page one so thanks for that 😉 but there’s also a lot of pain and hurt.

Felix is an absolute delight and Max is nothing like the flighty, irresponsible character we saw in Zeb and Jesse’s book Best Man. Instead, he’s hiding his hurt away and he’s confused about his feelings for his best friend Ivo, who he’s always believed he was in love with.

The way this complicated and complex plot was navigated really impresses, there’s never a moment where you forget at what point in time you are, the recollections flow seamlessly into the present.

This book had unexpected happy memories for me too, as the first motorbike I ever went on was my Uncle Richard’s 850cc Norton Commando when I was five-years-old! Sitting on the petrol tank as he slowly rode around the block and sealed my love for two wheels.

Also Waterloo Bridge – he didn’t leave her so there! She thought he was dead in the war 🤪😁

Reckless, arrogant, and bold, Solo is as known in the U.S. Navy for his bad-boy reputation as he is for his skills as a fighter pilot. It’s a surprise to his peers, then, when he’s chosen to train and compete at the most prestigious naval aviation academy in the world.

My favourite one yet as scientist Bel finds his perfect pair

53472987._SY475_Waking Bel by Jocelynn Drake

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another total triumph for me in this fantastic paranormal romance series from Jocelynn.

Here it’s the turn of Varik scientist Beltran to find his mate, only nothing is as it was with his brothers.

In perfect symmetry, Bel ends up not only with two mates, but with mates from a different species entirely as it becomes clear Wyatt and River are his.

With a dangerous pack alpha on the horizon and expanding fears that what’s left of the Vampire Ministry is going to come after the Varik clan, this book races at a steady pace.

Tension-packed, the narrative switches between high octane action and tender scenes between the two werewolves and their new mate.

As with every book in this series so far, there’s a self-contained story plot which wraps up within the book, while the overarching tale continues on.

Definitely my favourites so far in what has been an outstanding series.

I cannot wait to find out more about Winter, the youngest Varik and discover who his mate will be as there’s been no hints that I can remember!
