Loved how Trevor found a home in Jalen

Love Me Tenor (Perfect Harmony, #2)Love Me Tenor by Annabeth Albert

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I loved this one, I think I preferred it just over book one in the series too because Trevor was just so in need of someone to love him and he found the perfect person.

I also love the idea of these singing reality TV shows (even though I don’t watch any of them in actuality) and I think this worked better than the a cappella version in book one too.

The cast of secondary characters were great, the twin boyfriends Carter and Carson had me laughing but they actually had a lot of depth to them and their relationship, I liked Dawn, it’s nice to have supportive female characters, and our other MC, the delightfully spikey Jalen, was also a serious sweetheart.

Most of the conflict comes from external sources and there’s one character I’d like to hit with a piece of two b’four because of how he treats Trevor and how he gets in the way of Trev and Jalen. Homophobia and religious fervor really grind my gears.

Now to find where the heck I stuck book three because I need M’s story like yesterday!

More fabulous “hexy” fun times

Hexmaker (Hexworld, #2)Hexmaker by Jordan L. Hawk

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This series really is a delightful original, a steampunk dystopian alternative reality set in an America resembling turn of the century Edwardian society.

The hexes which make up the power in this world are intriguing and detailed and the witches and familiars who have the skills to power them are fully fleshed out characters.

I loved both Owen and Malachi, the difference in their respective backgrounds and stations in life worked wonderfully well against the backdrop of more anarchist plotting.

Lovely to see guest appearances from Tom and Cicero as well as Dominic and Rook. I hope there’s a book three on its way soon.
