Review: The Bohemian and the Businessman

The Bohemian and the Businessman The Bohemian and the Businessman by Katy Regnery
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I reviewed this book for Book Addict live,
This is a lovely story about Priscilla, the wild arty sister and a straight-laced Shane who she teases all the time when she worked at her father’s company.
When she comes home from Paris desperately needing help, the only one she can turned to is Shane. They have an agreement a marriage of convenience, for a year to get her inheritance, and Shane should get his promotion.
Nothing goes to plan as Priscilla and Shane discover when they become engaged. As more secrets are spilled, the attraction has become more real every day. As usual I loved this book from Katy Regnery, lots of romance with a hot hunks and strong heroines. This story just flowed and was a beautiful read.
Now I can’t wait for the other Story Sisters to get HEA.

Review: Unfinished Night: The Complete Duet

Unfinished Night: The Complete Duet Unfinished Night: The Complete Duet by Violet Duke
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I reviewed this book for Book Addict Live,
I have reviewed as two Books to keep the story straight.
Before That Night Book one
This was a very emotional read, pulling you into the story and play on your heartstrings.

We meet Addison as she go for a job, so she keep looking after siblings Kylie and Tanner. I should say second job, as she has a part time one that doesn’t pay enough. Addison just needs to buy time so she can save and then on her 21st birthday, then apply for custody for her siblings. While working the late shift at diner where a lot of cops come before and shifts as it is near police station. This is where she meets Caine, and they become friendly, but as the months pass this changes into something more.
I loved this book it made me cry like a baby. I was devastated at the end even though I knew there was a second book going in.
Book 2
Every night without you

We pick up the many years later and Addison moved back to the area with a different identity, and manager of a centre for the homeless halfway house. Helping family become part a community learning to help each other. Caine is driving as he spots Addison and follows her back to the centre.
We find nothing has changed with the reason she left, but Cain and Addison decide to fight the stalker together this time. It was great to meet her siblings much older selves. This book was so heartfelt I was crying and laughing loving Caine so much for his devotion to Addison. These both books are emotional and you just get pulled into the story. If you love romance with suspense and intrigue with HEA then this is for you.

Review: Low Blow

Low Blow Low Blow by Kristen Hope Mazzola
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I reviewed this for Book Addict Live,
Low Blow is not the usual sports romance. It was much better, when Griffin meets Olive it was an instant attraction which never wavered only got stronger.
Low Blow has characters from previous books, but it can be read as a standalone. It was unusual way to meet the love of your life. I loved this book, it was a wonderful story and enjoyed it all.

Review: Provocative

Provocative Provocative by Lisa Renee Jones
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I reviewed this book for Book Addict Live.
I have to say how much I love this author's books. The opening scene at the beginning of this story narrated by Nick and his very descriptive first meeting with Faith and the Bank Officials” Suit number one and number two started me off and I was hooked. Even though he is there for his own reasons, Faith captures his interest straight away. They’re both acting like its one night when they both know this is something more.
Both of them are looking for proof of foul play concerning her mother’s actions after her father died, and her mother’s death. Nick is also after the truth of his father’s death, and is there to see if Faith is involved. The more time they spend together, the more they trust each other. I love the way everything is the story draws you in, and before you know it the end and you realise there is more going on than you thought, and it is definitely deadly for someone. Now I have to wait for part two. As always the sex is hot, Nick is a sexy alpha that loves Faith’s provocative nature.

Review: His Human Rebel

His Human Rebel His Human Rebel by Renee Rose
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I reviewed this on behalf of Book addict. Live
This is book 4 in the Zandian Masters series, this is a Sci Fi Romance with plenty of sex thrown in. I also enjoy that a 7ft male with horns wanting to mate me is one of my fantasies, the author captures this perfectly for me. I had to have a cold shower after this one.
Cambry has been a slave in a factory, and then sentence to death when she and the others humans were rescued by the Zandians. Cambry doesn’t trust anyone, and when Lundric a Zandian guard tries to make her feel safe she keeps waiting for the other shoe to drop.
After plenty of action in and out of the bedroom we finally get their Hea.Without giving anything away all the books follow on from each other, but each couple get their own story, as with the others in the series there is plenty of spanking and other alpha sexual favours Lundric wants to do to his Human mate. So now I have to go back and catch on the ones I missed.

Review: Rough Around the Soul

Rough Around the Soul Rough Around the Soul by Maria Monroe
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a quick, but enjoyable read. Jake meets a young woman who asks him to sleep with her. Jake finds her attractive, not realising he has been given a false name he takes her home for the night. After a fantastic night of sex Aria leaves and he has no way to find her.
There is a lot going in this story, it is told with alternating views between Jake and Melanie which drives the story. It was a bit of insta love, with a side helping of sex thrown in.it was quick read and this is the first time I’ve read a book from this author and it won’t be my last.

Review: The Makeup Test

The Makeup Test The Makeup Test by Vanessa M. Knight
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Make-up Test is feel good romance, and with some angst with and funny bits thrown in. As with other books in the Ritter University world than can be read as standalones.
 
This time is Parker’s turn for romance, when she is left alone in her dorm before the Hols. Parker is desperate to finish up her last clients make-up order and then she is suddenly handcuffed with a gun aimed towards her. Campus security call the police because he thinks she is cooking Meths.
 
When she is arrested it starts a series of events that escalate out of control. The only good thing to come out of the situation is she meets Cade. Parker and Cade still have a lot problems to work through before they end up together. This was a quick read but with plenty going on. I enjoyed the read, and really felt for Parker, but she got her HEA. That all am going to tell you, find out for yourself.

Review: Rough

Rough Rough by Sybil Bartel
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wow I am trying to cool down that was a hot read. Jared was one hunk of a man who was not expecting to meet a woman like Sienna. He was affected straight away, and started treating her different from the beginning. There is plenty of hot sex and some of the things he says to Sienna my god hot, the steam is still coming off my kindle.
 
This book is part of a series of standalone books with a connected group of ex-servicemen who have the left the service with a variety of problems and use sex to cope. A enjoyed the story, lots of intrigue, great sex with a hot man what else do you want? I’m looking forward to Danes story Grind coming soon, can’t wait

Review: Commander in Chief

Commander in Chief Commander in Chief by Katy Evans
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Review
Commander in Chief by Katy evans
Added note the Audio book has come out, I listened all the night, bringing everything to life for me.
This second instalment in the series starts two months after Matt winning the Election for the Presidency. Charlotte has been travelling with her friend in Europe, but has come back home to watch Matt be sworn in as President. They both knew going into the relationship, if he won the Presidency even though they loved each other they would part. Charlotte still loved him more than ever, and missed him so much.
Matt is still in love with Charlotte, and decided to win her back to his side.
We see through the eyes of one of the most famous couple in America and the rest of the western world how they conduct their relationship.
Matt realises he will do anything to get Charlotte back into his life. When they work closely together as Matt asked her to stand in as the Acting First Lady because he is bachelor.
We see a wonderful romance with Matt trying his to win Charlotte, and run the Country. They both are incredibly busy, but when Matt can put time aside he spends the making feel her feel loved.It hard dating the President of the United States, but both are determined to make it work. So I recommend you press that button and order the book yourself, you won’t be disappointed.

Review: A Handful of Fire

A Handful of Fire A Handful of Fire by Alexis Alvarez
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I reviewed this book for Book Addict.Live
A Handful of Fire is Wonderful story with a emotional subject matter. It is about a Shai who specialises in therapy to help children dealing with serious illness. Through treating Michael a super intelligent but an unhappy boy trying to cope with a life threatening illness, and the treatment side effects. Through treating Michael she meets and falls for his father Gabriel.
Gabriel is a widower and he isn’t coping well with his son's illness. Full of anguish he loses himself in work and vain women.
This is a romance that take time to build, and even then not everything perfect. I love this book has substance and it’s not insta love or sex. The sex is hot, but Gabriel can still be a jerk, even if he is a hot jerk. We get HEA it takes work to get there, and is all the better for it. I enjoyed it and read it in one seating, it’s not long but has plenty to get your teeth into.

Review: Oliver

Oliver Oliver by F.G. Adams
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have reviewed this on behalf the Book Addict Blog.
Soulmates destined to collide” is the perfect way to describe this beautiful second chance romance.
Oliver has been tracking a woman who has been on the run from a nightmare for 14 years. Fallyn Blackwood and her daughter have been running using false identities to get by.
Oliver has had nothing in his life for 6 years since the death of his one love. When he is handed picture of Fallyn and asked to find and protect by her sister. He slowly comes back to life as he follows her from town to town.
Finally they meet and Fallyn and Oliver really fall for each, Fallyn also a mother to fourteen year old has never had a loving relationship with a man. It was a beautiful to see Oliver earning her trust. This is the third in a series, but can be read as a standalone with its own HEA.
Fallyn was a very strong woman with what she had survived, and managed bring up her daughter on her own from a young age. Oliver was really smitten it was a great sexy romance with suspense and I really enjoyed it. A romance with that extra dimension. This definitely ticked all my boxes, and can’t wait for the next book.

Review: The Castle

The Castle The Castle by Skye Warren
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I reviewed this on behalf of the Book Addict Blog.
I have been waiting impatiently for this book and it didn’t disappoint, I read it one sitting. Wow what a wonderful trilogy, it was great to see the progression Gabriel and Avery’s relationship. He stayed true to his self, but let her in. Avery became a stronger and more aware of the world from Avery in the Pawn. I love everything about this series and it kept enthralled to the end. It was so intense Gabriel with his wonderful expressions to Avery.
I have loved this trilogy and I’m sad that it’s finished. I couldn’t put it down, but I didn’t want it to end. This series is definitely going to be one of my rereads If you want to start the Pawn is free at the moment. Also there is a spin off with Damon Scott in the King due in June I can’t wait. Skye Warren is a genius I can’t stop thinking about this book, so I’m reading the PAWN again now I know what to look for.

Review: Forever

Forever Forever by Monica Murphy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is reviewed for the Book Addict blog.
I have been waiting impatiently for the next episode in the life Amanda and Jordan. It was everything I wanted and more. As always the road to true love is never smooth. This book is told in alternate views of Jordan and Amanda which made the story more balanced. It was nice to hear Tuttle’s voice. You can’t read about Jordan’s home life and not feel for him. Their biggest obstacle was Jordan learning how to have a relationship with Amanda. He was so use to being on his own, and his parents were hardly good role models. It’s not my job to tell you about the whole story that’s for you to buy and read for yourself. All I will is it was worth the wait and you will love it.

Review: Angelbound

Angelbound Angelbound by Christina Bauer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Angelbound is the first in the series which included a lot of world building. I haven’t had the pleasure of reading the books so this is my first encounter with the world of Purgatory and the Quasi Demon. This was absolutely absorbing, one minute I was laughing, and other parts crying.
Myla was a normal 18yr old, but is basically living under the rule of the Ghouls on behalf of Armageddon The King of Hell, who invaded 20 years ago.
This has fighting in the Arena and elsewhere, teenage angst, boy meets girl. I loved it, I am hooked when is more coming out on Audio. I got to say I loved Lincoln, he was perfect for Myla. The story is narrated by Myla the main character who goes through an amazing transformation. I absolutely love this Audio book and when is Acca coming out?

Review: Anson

Anson Anson by Alta Hensley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This review is on behalf of the Book Addict blog.
Anson is the third book in the Black Stallion Trilogy. Finally Anson goes to Argentina to rescue Natalya. Most of action the takes place in Argentina. Much to Anson’s surprise when he tries to rescue Natalya, she tells him to go away.
 
  Luckily for Natalya Anson doesn’t give up. There is plenty of action as are on the run through Argentina. Natalya is very wary at first, but once on the run with Anson she realises his is one of the good guys.

A great finish to an action packed trilogy in and out of the bedroom. Once back on the ranch the woman are beginning to heal, and finally Natalya feels part of a family. I have to say I loved the batcave.

Review: Mr. President

Mr. President Mr. President by Katy Evans
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is an added comment, I have just listened to the new Audio edition of Mr President. It brought to life Charlotte and Matt, I have two things to say "I loved it" and " When is Commander in Chief coming in Audio downloads" .
Wow I don’t what to say, a completely different type of story from Katy Evans.
No less enjoyable for it, I can’t get it out of my mind. I loved it so much, but I don’t know what to say. So I’ll start at the beginning.
We first meet Charlotte age 11, waiting to meet President Hamilton when he comes to her home for dinner. Matt was with his father a teenager, but taller than his father. He was gorgeous. His hair the color of sable, although it was combed back, it was unruly at the ends. Charlotte’s first encounter with Matt. The President introduced him to Charlotte with the following comment “My son, Matthew. He’s going to be President one day “he said conspiratorially. When Charlotte’s parents send the President a thank you letter. Charlotte gets out her best stationery and decides to write to Matthew a thank you letter with a parting comment of. “If you ever decide to run for president you have my vote. I’d even be willing to join your campaign.” That was the start of her crush and the start of the story.
Matthew and Charlotte were wonderful together, the chemistry builds up for almost the first half of the book. We really get to know the characters Matthew is a dedicated man who is willing to work hard to effect change for the better. Charlotte works a women’s charity, and really wants to help people.
I loved this book, If only there were a real Matthew with his love and dedication for his country. Alas I had a dilemma if Matt won, it means no Charlotte.
I couldn’t put the book down, as we follow them around the country for nearly a year.
We see them getting closer, but finding nearly impossible to get any time together.
This is the best book I’ve read this year, and I have to wait until next year to found out if he won or not. All I’m going to say Vote Hamilton and get this book to read, you won’t regret it.

Review: Co-Wrecker

Co-Wrecker Co-Wrecker by Meghan Quinn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was reviewed for the Book Addict Blog
This is super quick story about Sadie and Andrew who at work in a restaurant that specialist in ice cream sundaes. Andrew has had to transfer to a different college after an incident that became out of hand.

The only accommodation available was to share a house with 5 girls, mostly foreign students.

When he starts his summer job he meets Sadie, who gives him the cold shoulder. The longer Sadie gets to know him the more she falls for him.

This was book was slightly quirky in some ways, as Andrew a Science Fiction loving nerd with a collection of calculators. Sadie realised she needed Andrew to bring back the joy in her life and to start having fun again.

I really enjoyed this book, Andrew was great character I loved him straight away. It took me a bit longer to warm up to Sadie, but a great group of friends. This a quirky romance I read in one sitting. I was still smiling when I finished reading.

The sexy architect is trying to be the best Daddy he can be, but he’s out of his element with diapers and bouncy swings.

When he finds out Lily spent three years working as an au pair, he sees an opportunity and offers her a deal: They can share the apartment in exchange for help with Dawn and a crash course in Daddy 101 for Wes. Lily’s between jobs, and the last thing she wants to do is apartment hunt, so she agrees.

As Lily weaves herself into Wes and Dawn’s lives, he finds himself irresistibly drawn to the perky blonde and her optimistic spirit. Her killer curves don’t hurt, either. Falling for the nanny is such a cliché, but after Wes accidentally walks in on Lily in the shower, all bets are off.

Cliché or not, she will be his.

And he’s playing for keeps.

Snippet 1:
He yanked the door open, and instead of finding a delivery man like he expected, one of the most luscious-looking blondes he’d ever seen stood at his door.



Her hair was a dark honey color, hanging straight around her face, swinging down past her shoulder blades. Her face was sweet and heart-shaped, with big blue eyes and a full, pink mouth that was just begging to be nibbled on. A tiny woman, she had on well-worn denim jeans that hugged the sweet curve of her ass like it was their one duty in life. Her V-neck sweater was a dark blue, and she wore a gold locket around her neck that looked old and sentimental, hanging low between her breasts like some sort of siren’s lure.



He stared down at her, realizing that the sleep deprivation had apparently not killed his sex drive. He was suddenly, uncomfortably aware that it’d been forever since he’d even thought about jerking off. Sweet, curvy, girl-next-door types were his greatest weakness, and this woman was all that and more. God, she was beautiful. He just wanted to take a handful of her backside and squeeze.





Snippet 2:
Everything went very still and quiet, their breathing the only sound. Their faces were just inches from each other, his hands shifting to her waist, her own on his shoulders.
Her gaze dropped helplessly to his lips, and then back to his eyes.
“Wes,” she whispered. She didn’t know if it was a warning. Maybe it was invitation.
He certainly took it as one.
He kissed her, and it was like a dam breaking inside. It flooded her: all that tension, all that desire, all those naughty, dirty thoughts she’d been weighted down with since the second she saw him, standing in that doorway, his shirt open like some sort of special gift just for her.




Snippet 3:
“Play your cards right,” Lily said. “And you might get me for breakfast.”
He licked his lips, thinking of last night, of how sweet she tasted.
“Promise?” he asked.
She grabbed his discarded shirt from the bottom of the bed and threw it on. His stomach tightened at the sight of her in his old college T. She was so tiny the hem almost fell to her knees, and the material was worn and thin, draping across her perfect double D’s like a second skin.
She caught him staring at her, practically drooling, and winked before sashaying out of the room.
Wes slumped back in the bed.
He was so very screwed. Either Lily was an angel sent from heaven or the devil in disguise.
And frankly, he could care less which one it was as long as he got to keep her with him.

Review: Tea for Two

Tea for Two Tea for Two by Kailee Reese Samuels
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Before Reading this book I would advise reading Book 1 The Initiation 3 and half stars
This is an instalment from the life of Salvatore Raniero the sexy alpha male from Juliet.
This story is set in 2009 when Sal was 19yrs old. This is quite a complicated story with plots and sub plots. Sal falls in love, and this such a different Sal from the previous books.
The falling in love was beautiful, and Berti was a lovely tragic soul. First he meets Kaci, and she introduces him to Berti. Sal is mesmerised and plans to leave his life in Sugargrove and Juliet behind. As we know nothing ever goes to plan.
I enjoyed getting to know more about Lucas Salvatore Raniero. The problem being I felt Sal was being used like a pawn, but it seems we must wait for new book to see where all the hints go. The book is not for fainthearted the subject matter is not just BDSM. I enjoyed the writing and I fell in love with Sal so I am now hooked.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Natural 20 or natural disaster?
EXCERPT:
Satisfied with my results, I settled on the bed, all snug and dry in my robe. Pressing a stack of clean washcloths to my mouth to muffle the laughter, I heard the water turn off. After a few seconds’ hesitation, he called from inside the bathroom.
“Hey. Where are all the towels?”
I didn’t answer, just laughed some more and smothered my giggles.
The slap of his wet feet on the bare floor sounded as he crossed the bathroom toward the door. He poked his dripping head out of the doorway. “What did you do?” His dark eyebrow arched, hair soaked and plastered to his forehead. A puddle quickly formed around his feet.
I held up one of the tiny washcloths. “You want this, don’t you? The hate is swelling in you now.”
His mouth quirked. “Something’s swelling, but it isn’t hate.” He pushed the hair away from his forehead and cleared the water that had dripped into his eyes. “Somehow I thought getting away with that was too easy.”
I smirked. “You should know me better by now. As for drying off…you could always use your dirty underpants.”
“Underpants? What am I, five?” He clenched his jaw and then grinned. “Don’t underestimate the power of the dark side, young Jedi.”
I rolled my eyes. “So you’re going to try to one-up me? So predictable. I’m shaking in my boots.”
His dark eyes gleamed as he came closer. Rivulets of water had collected on his tasty abs. It was fascinating to behold.
“And you should know me better, too.” He grinned evilly. “I don’t one-up. I one-hundred-up.” Then he shook his head inches from my face. Droplets of water sprayed everywhere. I let out a screech and pulled back. “You are looking too dry over there, little girl. Let me help you with that.”
And he promptly pinned me, dripping wet, to the bed and started rubbing his drenched face in mine. “You’re gonna soak the bed!” I screeched.
“Collateral damage,” he replied. He reached down and pulled the belt on my robe, opening it. Then he shifted, sandwiching me between his wet body and the bed.
I squirmed and wiggled, and he only seemed to like it more. He shook his head again. My hand smacked his hard chest. “You’re such a boy.”
He grinned. “I’m all boy,” he said, pressing his erection against me.
“I won’t take this lying down,” I muttered.
“You don’t have to take it lying down.” He laughed. “There’s always up against the door or the shower wall. Or you can take it bent over the back of the couch or a dozen other different ways. Whatever way you take it…you are taking it.”

Poor Tyler is in a coma for weeks but when he wakes up Karrie and Tyler have to work through plenty of misunderstandings. The biggest for Karrie is Tyler has feelings for her. This a heartfelt tale with plenty of drama, love and learning to live again is beautifully done.

I not saying another word there is so much packed into this tale of real life problems dealt with courage and love with for each other. I recommend this book to read if you like plenty to get your teeth into. So buy it yourself and get your teeth stuck in. Oh I did I say Tyler is Hot, Sexy and a knight on a shiny motorbike.

Review: Don't Speak

Don't Speak Don't Speak by Katy Regnery
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Don’t Speak ripped my heart out, and laughingly gave me it back at the end of the book.
As with this series of books, they are all standalones based on Fairytales in modern day settings. Don’t Speak is based on Little Mermaid. It was masterly done with Laire a young 18yr old from the Outer Banks Island. The Island has been settled in the 17th century by English, Irish, Welsh and the Scots. The Island isolated for a long time and they speak a cross of old Elizabethan and some bits of Southern Carolinas. No mobiles, no computers.
Most of the Islanders get married very young, and have a family, but Laire wants to go to fashion school, and design clothes. Then we have Erick the Governors son, who is used to having anything he wanted. When he saw Laire for the first time he watched her delivering crabs to his lavish birthday party. Erick is from a completely different background getting what he wants, not what he needs. As soon as he sees Laire he’s besotted and chases relentlessly. As Laire has a fall time summer job on away from home all day and evening.
They fall blissfully in love over the summer, but the real world intrudes and they part. Both are devastated, unfortunately they don’t meet for 7 years, the feelings come with a vengeance. This is another wonderful read from Katy Regnery I laughed, I cried this story me an emotional wreck. I loved it. There is a lot more to the story you must read it and find out for yourself.

Review: Lost in Between

Lost in Between Lost in Between by K.L. Kreig
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

WOW my god what a book, I am still trying to cool down my kindle is on fire. I don’t think I can survive until May for book 2.
We have Willow who narrates Audiobooks for a living, but because her Mother has Alzheimer’s and her care is very expensive Willow works as Escort under the name of summers.
When Shaw needs a fake girlfriend for a couple of months his friend Noah recommends Summer not knowing they had already met when he drove into the back of her car.
The air sizzles with the sexual tension in the air when they meet. Shaw doesn’t understands his feelings, and Willow keeps all her feelings bottled letting very little in. Over time they gradually fall for each other.
I loved this book except when I reached the end and realised I have to wait until May for the outcome, that’s if I survive.

Review: The Cad and the Co-Ed

The Cad and the Co-Ed The Cad and the Co-Ed by L.H. Cosway
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

cI was really looking forward to reading this book, and I wasn’t disappointed, Eilish is a young impressible 19yr old Co-ed who meets her teenage crush at a wedding reception. The Cad in this story is Bryan who was an alcohol dependant Rugby Player who was so drunk he can’t remember sleeping her.
They don’t meet again for 5 years, and although Bryan really smitten when he meets Eilish at a party after she has come back to Dublin after finishing her education in America.
This was a refreshing change from the normal “I’ve had your baby and my son is 10” instantly they in bed and in love.
This was a romantic comedy with some heartfelt emotions thrown in. Bryan is now a sober mature individual who drinks mint tea. So with a catalogue awful parents and well-meaning friends we have plenty entertainment to enjoy. So if you enjoy a good story with HEA then this the book for you. I haven’t read any of the others in the series, and they can be read as standalones, but after this one I will be reading them now.

Review: Four

Four Four by Archer Kay Leah
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book two in The Republic Series, but can be read as a standalone.
This story is obviously set in the same world as book one, but a completely different couple complete with HEA.
This book centers on Mayr the Head of the Guard for a prominent family.
Mayr is lovely man, handsome, loyal, but has been very badly treated by his previous Partners.
He comes from a close nit family, all he ever wanted was someone to love and complete him.
The truth is that nothing worth having is ever easy, and all the best things in life are the result of pain. In the end, that's what makes the good things go very great,
and that's what makes it all worth the struggle.

I think that describes this beautiful love story. At its heart is about finding that one person that completes you.
Mayr meets Tash through one of his exes who he meets for a threesome.
Tash is a priest, who is getting ready to become an Uldana Priest which unfortunately will mean he will be unable to have close sexual relationship with anyone.
Even though they decide to keep everything casual, which would be okay if only both men didn’t feel this strong connection neither one expected.
I not saying anymore except it pulled on my heartstrings.
I have read this authors work before and he knows how to pull you into the different worlds he creates and spits me out after I have been put through emotional ringer.
I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a beautiful but heartbreaking love story set in a fantasy setting.
