It’s very definitely Adam Only for me!

Adam Only (Those Other Books #2)Adam Only by Roe Horvat

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There is magic in Roe Horvat’s words. I seriously don’t know how he does it but every single book of his has just reached into my soul and captured it.

This one is no different for all Roe labels it erotica and pops it into a different box.

It’s still a beautifully written tale of love, of finding the right person who just understands you, who knows what you need and when you need it.

Is it erotic, oh Hell yes it is.

Does it make you puddle in a pool of drool, absolutely yes.

But it’s so much more than that. It’s about finding a home, it’s about filling up the empty and lost spaces in your heart and it’s about moving forward with the knowledge that you can live your life exactly as you want with the right person at your side.

In just a few chapters, Roe gives us the start of the amazing relationship between Adam and Cristoffer that we saw in The Other Book and it is glorious.

Another fantastic job from Davidson King

From These Ashes
by Davidson King

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love Davidson King’s romantic suspense style, there’s always enough tension and a real sense that something could go wrong at anytime.

There’s always two vastly different men who somehow manage to be perfect for each other.

One is always uniquely gifted with the ability to bring out the best side of what are normally incredibly dangerous men while still retaining their own strength and independence.

Here I liked how the whole narrative sort of accidentally came to be. Black wasn’t looking for Quill, Quill was just trying to survive. But somehow circumstances conspired to bring them together and make Black be the one to try and put things right.

There’s brief glimpses of Mace and Bill, Teddy and Riordan and series faves Snow and Christopher. We also get given a potential new pairing which I personally think may end up being a three, and there’s another glimpse into the world of the mysterious Pie, who is so totally the Hart heir I’d put money on it.

There is violence, as expected, but I was surprised at just how dirty Black was willing to get his hands dirty once it became clear Quill was a target. The ending is brutal but I felt not a flicker of pity for those involved.

I’m eagerly looking forward to reading the next one in this fascinating series.

My favourite one yet in this great series

Owning It (Metropolis Book 3)Owning It by Riley Hart

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’ve loved both the other two in this series but this was the one I’ve been waiting for – we finally get Derek’s story and its a delight.

While this one is as ridiculously hot and sexy as the first two, there’s a lot off heart to this one which comes from the fact Derek’s lover is an older man, Jackson.

And oh my, how much did I love Jackson. There aren’t enough words for me to describe just how lovely, and seriously sexy, Jackson was. He’s the guy you’d wish your kids to find for their true love, that’s if you couldn’t steal a Jackson for yourself.

He’s kind, loyal, thoughtful, closed off, scared of coming out of his comfort zone, excited to get back in the dating world and a whole host of other contrasting character traits. But most of all, he’s perfect for Derek.

Derek, the brash, outspoken, loud and carefree power bottom we first bumped into in Gary and Travis’ story, doesn’t believe love is for him. He hides a real hurt but also a huge secret – his heart is damaged by his experiences and by what’s happening in the corner of his life he keeps hidden from his friends.

There’s a real slow burn for these two which makes it all the more special, and incendiary level explosive, when they finally come together – deliberate pun intended.

The development of their relationship is handled beautifully by these two authors and it carries you along with it with only a couple of hiccups, and believable ones at that, along the way.

Now Frankie and Evan next please and then the other guy whose name we’re all avoiding mentioning so we don’t spoil anything 🙂
