Kieran (Atherton Pack #4) by Toni Griffin

release day review

 

30351879Blurb

“You need to go to Atherton,” they said. Easy for them. The higher-ups at headquarters don’t have their whole world on the line. When Detective Damon Kelly’s bosses send him across the state on a “simple” cyber fraud case, he never thinks he’d meet his mate, then risk losing Kieran by doing his job. No matter what other possible angles Damon works, his partner Grant Davis is sure Kieran’s best friend Corey’s their guy, and Grant is bent on bringing him in.

After the birth of their Alpha’s son, the Atherton Pack needs another beta. Kieran Baxter couldn’t be happier to accept. What Kieran doesn’t expect is for all hell to break loose his first week on the job. Clashing with his mate at every turn, and fighting a human cop who wants to arrest Corey for hacking a government database, wasn’t part of the plan either.

As more evidence piles up, a bigger, scarier picture comes into focus that could threaten not only the Atherton Pack, but everything the world knows.

Review

This is the fourth book in the Atherton series and while it can probably be read as a standalone I think you’d miss a lot in the continuing story arc if you haven’t read the first three. There’s not a lot of world building so I think the author assumes you’ve been following along.

In any case, we get to see what happens after Corey. There’s an investigation, some potential for a break in the secrecy from humans and of course Kieran and Damon learning they’re mates.

What I liked about this is that both MCs are strong, almost alpha types, so they like to manhandle the other quite a bit. There is quite a bit of sex in this and a fair amount of the book is also devoted to the ongoing story arc. I do wish there’d been a bit more “relationship building” but it wasn’t terribly different from the previous books in this regard.

One thing that bothered me a little: the guys end up mating fairly quickly and sharing the mind link – but they still end up not “knowing” the other well. Wouldn’t they just “talk” via the mind link and establish the relationship that way? But that’s a small complaint.

If you’ve been enjoying the series, as I have, this is a great installment and I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Sequel to Romanus
Fireman Mason James thought finding out he is a Romanus—a rare class of gargoyle—would be the surprise of a lifetime, but he’s proven wrong when he discovers he is the son of a comte and goji nobility. But his newly discovered family doesn’t think his gargoyle lover, Luc, is good enough for a goji of Mason’s stature—how could a warrior ever be? But despite the Moreaus’ uncertainty and elitism, they are Mason’s only chance to unravel the mystery behind his mother’s death, find a solution for the class divide that might separate him from Luc, and discover what it truly means to be a Romanus.

Review

(Book reviewed here previously)

First, you must read Romanus before you read this. It won’t really make sense as a standalone.

We met the two lovers Luc and Mason when Mason had stumbled upon Luc’s chasse of gargoyles to find out that Mason was actually a Romanus, something revered by the gargoyles. Unfortunately, they don’t know much about what that means and the main driving force in this story is to find out just what it means to be a Romanus so that the tension in the chasse will let up.
There’s an added element of mystery when a family comes from France claiming to be related to Mason. Some threats are made and Mason and Luc fly over the ocean to research being a Romanus with the keeper of the gargoyle history and to find out more about Mason’s family as well.
Meanwhile, at every turn, Luc is met with derision, scorn and contempt because he is of a “lower class” than the Romanus – at least historically. Mason will have none of this and this helps Luc and Mason to iron out their own relationship issues.
**
I fell in love with Romanus years ago and was so psyched to see this sequel finally come about! It does not disappoint! In typical Mary form, Mason is absolutely perfect, Luc is tough as all get out and the bad guys are really bad and easily seen through. But… there’s some fascinating twists and turns this story takes that keep the storyline fresh and proves to me – again – that when Mary writes paranormal she really shines her brightest.
I loved this sequel and highly recommend it to fans of paranormal stories, fans of Mary Calmes and fans of Romanus and Gargoyles in general.

Review

First, the timeline Jordan gives us helps with understanding both the flow and order of these stories.

A Rough Timeline

The PsyCop shorts differ from the main series in various ways: tone, pacing, even subject matter. Some of them don’t fit neatly into a specific slot in the series. Some of them may even contradict small facts from the main books. They’re tangents, really, bits of story that would warp the pacing of a longer book, but things that seemed to be worth exploring.

Coffee O’Clock takes place soon after Among the Living, when Vic’s relationship with Jacob was still tenuous and new. A few months elapsed before Thaw, so it would be set betweenBody & Soul and Secrets. So would Stroke of Midnight, their first New Year’s together.

No Sale is the first story that takes place after they move in to the cannery, so it’s after Secrets and Camp Hell. Most Likely To…, Let the Chips Fall, Off the Cuff and Memento all occur after the move-in. Vic’s baking effort marks their first anniversary together, so Piece of Cake occurred just after GhosTV.

In the Dark, which expands on Jacob’s relationship with Keith, would be their second Halloween together, which puts it between GhosTV and Spook Squad. That would make Everyone’s Afraid of Clowns a future Halloween.

The stories where Vic tangles with Crash happened closer to the beginning of their friendship. Mind Reader would be pretty early, in the Fall just after Criss Cross, but in Jock Straps they’re more comfortable together, so it’s the next Spring, after Body & Soul.

Since Lisa is in town with Waiting Game, it happened during the gap between GhosTV and Spook Squad, which was the longest continuous stretch she was in Chicago.

In Impact, Jacob is beginning to explore his own abilities, so that’s after Camp Hell. Wood and On the Road are set around the holidays of their second winter, and Vic is at ease with Jacob’s family by then, so they occur after Spook Squad, as do Locked and Loaded and Witness.

Inside Out is a prequel set before Among the Living, but it wouldn’t be as interesting to read it chronologically. I think of it as a flashback episode of a sitcom where none of the characters know each other yet; the fun comes from viewing it through the lens of knowing that those ships passing in the night will eventually collide.

These snatches of stories—vignettes and flashbacks, and a few longer meaningful moments that happened when the novels weren’t looking—form a mosaic of Vic and Jacob’s relationship that’s still recognizable as them, but shows the two of them in some new and unexpected colors.

 

Coffee O’Clock 

This is a very cute “morning after” with Vic and Jacob.  I love how little things bother Vic in this one that we see pop up again and again in other stories.  (Like how Jacob is kind of a slob with his stuff!)  We also get to see just how important Jacob is to Vic and how pivotal this time period is for them as a couple.


Thaw 

 This is just a sweet little story about Vic and Jacob being cute with one another and very loving. Also – ice skating!

 


Mind Reader 

I’m not sure what this was about… but I’ll bet it plays out in the future.   A little (weird) interlude between Vic and Crash.


Stroke of Midnight 

 Jacob ends up alone at a New Year’s Eve party at his ex’s house. He’s lucky, though, he ends up with Vic at Midnight.

Very cute and the two of them are so sweet with one another!


No Sale

This is a quick shopping trip where Vic runs into a knife wielding ghost and Jacob shows us how much he trusts Vic.


Most Likely To…

I thought this was a fascinating look through Vic’s eyes at himself and a nice little glimpse of the lengths Jacob will go to to find out more/support his love.


Jock Straps On Sale

As with Crash in general, I’m not quite sure where this was going… but it was funny!


Piece of Cake

Ha!  This is a fun look at Vic and Crash and baking for Jacob!


In the Dark

This was a pretty fascinating look both at how Vic sees himself as compared to the rest of Jacob’s friends and a little bit on morality and moral obligations.  Really interesting.


Let the Chips Fall

Cute story about our boys buying paint.


Memento

I think this is my favorite of all the little side stories.  It is an amazingly sweet look at Vic through Jacob’s eyes and it just GLOWS with his ardor.  He loves Vic so, so much.  Fascinating and so touching.


Impact

I like seeing Jacob flexing his psychic “muscle”.


Everyone’s Afraid of Clowns

What an interesting one!  I loved the take on the haunted house and the eventual ghost hunt.  (The castration zone was particularly disturbing!)


Waiting Game

Yes!  One from Lisa’s perspective!  So fascinating.  All the wondering.  Si?  No.


On the Road

Mr. Perfect not being perfect, though still perfectly charming.


Wood

This is a fun “boys will be boys” side trip where Vic and Jacob are easy in their relationship and having fun.  It was a blast!


Off the Cuff

A little bit more “boy humor” with our guys.  🙂


Locked and Loaded

I love both the psychic strength Vic shows here and the love he has for Jacob.


Inside Out

Technically this is a pre-quel to the Psycop series but I strongly recommend reading it after book one and before Thaw, so that’s where I’m going to place it. You’ll have already read book one, so you know Crash, Carolyn, Victor and Jacob.

This is the first time Jacob meets Victor and hears about Crash. So interesting!

 Witness

This was a well crafted short story about a strange training exercise that ends up topsy turvy.  And a little smexy times!

 

For fans of the series, some of these you’ll have already read, so it’s great having them compiled in one convenient package, but there are others here that are new and so much fun to read!

Reading the Signs by Keira Andrews

32184585Blurb

 

This hot-headed rookie needs discipline—on and off the field.

Pitcher Nico Agresta is desperate to live up to his family’s baseball legacy. Since he was a teenager crushing on his big brother’s teammate, he’s known he can’t act on his desires. His father made it clear there should be no queers on the field, but if Nico can win Rookie of the Year like his dad and brother did, maybe he can prove he’s worthy after all.

At 34, veteran catcher Jake Fitzgerald just wants to finish out his contract and retire. His team doesn’t have a prayer of making the playoffs, but who needs the stress? Jake lost his passion for the game—and life—after driving away the man he loved, and he swore he’d never risk his heart again.

Then he’s traded to a team that wants a vet behind the plate to tame their new star pitcher. Jake is shocked to find the gangly kid he once knew has grown into a gorgeous young man. But tightly wound Nico is having trouble controlling his temper in his quest for perfection, and Jake needs to teach him patience and restraint on the mound.

When their push and pull explodes into the bedroom, Nico and Jake will both learn how much they’ll risk for love.

This gay sports romance features men who have been repressing their feelings far too long, light BDSM, an age difference, sweaty locker rooms, and a happy ending.

Review

So when I read the blurb for this my first thought was “Huh. A gay version of “Bull Durham”!” Well… it’s not exactly the same as the 80s movie – not really. But there were some comparisons. I liked how Jake takes care of Nico and steps in both personally and professionally to help him with his “baggage”.

The BDSM was VERY light, so if you’re worried about that, I wouldn’t be too concerned. I’m very uncomfortable with most BDSM and this wasn’t bad at all.

I thought the progression from “bi-curious” to “I’m gay” to “I’m out” was a little far-fetched. I know – it’s fiction. But poor Nico has been carrying around some awfully heavy luggage for a long time. His family hates him. He killed his mom. He’s bad. He’s wrong. There’s no “gay” in baseball. Etc. So he uncovers a TON of new “truths” and seems to move really quickly through a LOT of emotional stuff. I think that maybe having him either take longer to address some of these things or giving him a few less “issues” would have felt more appropriate.

I also felt like Jake was a little too “zen” and could have used some more emotion to help balance him out.

I’m not a baseball fan so I kinda skimmed all that stuff, but I found this story, for the most part, to be pretty good. It was relatively low angst, sweet, and sexy. In the end the family and the MCs do all the “right” things and except for poor Jake, everyone gets a perfect HEA.

51unmzdt6ol-_sl300_Blurb

Victor Bayne’s job as a PsyCop involves tracking down dead people and getting them to spill their guts about their final moments. It’s never been fun, per se. But it’s not usually this annoying.

Vic has just moved in with his boyfriend Jacob, he can’t figure out where anything’s packed, and his co-worker is pressuring him to have a housewarming party.

Can’t a guy catch a break?

On a more sinister note, Vic discovers there’s absolutely no trace of him online. No trace of anyone else who trained at “Camp Hell,” either. Everyone Vic knows has signed a mysterious set of papers to ensure his “privacy.” The contracts are so confidential that even Vic has never heard of them. But Jacob might have.

What other secrets has Jacob been keeping?

 

Review

Wow. Just. Wow.

When you think you know somebody….

In this story we see the boys move in together. But – really – that wasn’t as big a deal as I’d have expected it to be. Instead we get some weird stuff about Crash/Vic and Crash/Jacob. I think something is heading our way that will involve Crash more seriously in the future.

Lisa comes back – so – Yay! I love Lisa’s talent and how she and Vic are so good for one another. It’s wonderful that they can share the depth of their respective talents with each other since nobody else seems to be quite as – psychic?- as them.

Jacob was the shocker in this story. First, he seriously gets off on Vic’s talent. Way more than we’ve ever seen and it’s seriously HOT. Like, scorching. Second, seeing his reaction to the “perp” was startling. He always seemed so by the book and we see a different side of him here. In a way, it makes him more believable as Vic’s boyfriend. He’s far from perfect.

I’m always so impressed by Jordan’s imagination. She has some serious writing chops. Just when we’re knee deep in a deep, dark, sexual fog – Vic will tell us how much he loves Jacob and trusts him and finds him sweet. It really brings us back to the feels in the moment without losing the momentum of the sexual tension.

In any case – our boys solved the crime – super creatively – and the story deepens surrounding Camp Hell.

Gah! I love Gomez Pugh. He does a terrific job – again! I love Lisa. I love his “new” Jacob and thought the other secondary characters (Miss Mattie, Crash, Shepherd, Barnhardt) were fantastic.

Ben and Shiloh (Belladonna Arms Book 4) by John Inman

release day review

 

31990290Blurb

 

Shiloh Smart is alone and looking for a fresh start. Convinced he’s finished with love forever, he signs a lease at the Belladonna Arms, a tacky, run-down apartment building situated high on a hill in downtown San Diego.

Determined to turn his back on romance, Shiloh works hard at carving out a life for himself where love doesn’t stand a chance and staying single is all that matters.

Then his drag queen landlord’s nephew, Ben Moss, moves in. Thanks to a rumor Ben has heard since childhood of a fifty-year-old crime and a fortune in stolen money, he sets out to find the loot supposedly hidden decades ago in his uncle’s apartment building.

The minute Ben spots a kilted Shiloh toddling off to work at the Scottish restaurant up the street where he waits tables, he falls hard and fast for the aloof young redhead. Even a hidden treasure can’t compete in Ben’s eyes with the beautiful waiter with the fiery copper hair.

But even while he diligently works to break down Shiloh’s defenses, Ben doesn’t give up his quest for buried treasure. Soon, as their friendship deepens, the two young men join forces in a search for the stolen cash.

As the treasure hunt gathers steam and all the tenants get involved, Ben and Shiloh come to realize the greatest treasure isn’t buried in the Belladonna Arms at all. It’s buried far deeper—in each other’s hearts!

 

Review

If you’re a fan of this series, you know that the Belladonna Arms is full of wacky, unique characters and hijinks! Arthur is the manager/owner and he’s probably the most “unique” of them all, but his nephew gives him a run for his money.

What makes this series so charming is the unapologetic matchmaking, crazy antics, charming characters and the solid romance to be found in the “love pollen”. John Inman is a gifted humor writer and his work is showcased here.

I think, in general, this story was a bit more “silly” than the previous books. Ben is almost a caricature, like his uncle only without the melodrama. Shiloh is meant to be a curmudgeon but he’s just too sweet to pull it off.

I loved catching up with the gang and seeing how everyone is doing these days and of course I loved the very, very HEA our MCs get at the end.

Highly recommended to fans of the series, and while it’s probably an okay read as a standalone, I don’t recommend it as it will lose so much of it’s flavor without the background from the previous books.

Opposites Audiobook by TM Smith Narrated by Greg Boudreaux

audiobookreview

51anpibbhl-_sl300_

Blurb

In the year 2081, our planet has survived global warming on an apocalyptic scale. When the dust settled and the water receded, Dr. Anthony Smith, along with the few survivors of GWI, started society anew. Having come to the conclusion that injudicious breeding played a huge role in the destruction of Earth as we knew it in the 21st century, he worked closely with other survivors to isolate the Dionysus gene: the gene has the ability to manipulate human DNA to ensure that all male children be born gay, and all female children be born lesbians.

A new society was born.

In the year 2300 Dr. Smith’s descendants are ushering in the 24th century, having maintained control of the government that still rules society. Twins, Aiya and Aiyan, are preparing to meet their matches and take control of House Gaeland, the current ruling House. But not everything is as it seems.

Love is love, it knows no gender and doesn’t conform to restrictions or boundaries. Aiyan has found his soul mate in Kaden, the prince of House Devi, whom he will eventually marry. But when the person Aiya falls in love with tests the boundaries put in place after GWI, all hell breaks loose. And in the midst of one secret unraveling, another will emerge. There is a growing anomaly that threatens to destroy over 200 years of progression. This anomaly is known as Opposites

 

Review

I have a (perhaps) unique perspective on this in that I listened to the novellas before the original novel. This helped me in that there are a LOT of characters and a LOT of world building going on – especially in the beginning. I can’t say I always kept track of who was who – I’m a far more visual person than auditory so my mind would wander a bit – but having the wonderful Greg Boudreaux narrating means that each character was unique and easily identifiable.

I found the concept of this story captivating and the romance(s) both really sweet and super sexy!

Usually I shy away from anything remotely “dystopian” as I tend to find them terribly pessimistic and dour, but this was almost like an entire other world and far less “doom and gloom” than the typical.

If you’re looking for a somewhat complicated, but rewarding and unique look at the future – and you really like some steam in your romances – this is the story (series) for you.

I think that listening to this is an amazing experience because Greg is such a tremendous performer. He really adds to the overall enjoyment by giving depth and emotion to the characters and making the story really pop up and feel multi-dimensional.

51efpj8h9-l-_sl300_Blurb: 
Thanksgiving can’t end too soon for Victor Bayne, who’s finding Jacob’s family hard to swallow. Luckily, he’s called back to work to track down a high-profile missing person.

Meanwhile, Jacob tries to find a home they can move into that’s not infested–with either cockroaches, or ghosts. As if the house-hunting isn’t stressful enough, Vic’s new partner Bob Zigler doesn’t seem to think he can do anything right. A deceased junkie with a bone to pick leads Vic and Zig on a wild chase that ends in a basement full of horrors.

 

Review:

In this installment, there is another mystery to be solved – this time it’s involving multiple missing persons and trying to track them down using ghosts who may have seen them last.

Jacob and Vic are moving their relationship forward and looking to buy a house/apartment, but finding one without roaches or ghosts is proving harder to find than either believed.

As our MCs grow closer, their sex gets more intimate and intense. Their everyday lives contrast more and more drastically as their professional mysteries become more bizarre though they become more settled.

The secondary characters (both living and dead) are a riot and the writing is impeccable as always. I miss Lisa and hope to see her again soon!

Audio:

Gomez Pugh is the PERFECT narrator for this series. His flat Vic and rumbly Jacob are SUPERB. I love his Latin hooker voice as well as his “Chicaga” accents. “Da Bears!”

I adore the series and listening to it on audiobook is an amazing experience, definitely the best way to enjoy this wonderful work.

Victor Bayne might not be handy when it comes to carpentry, but if there’s one tool he does know how to wield, it’s the tiny metal doohickey that comes with ready-to-assemble furniture from SaverPlus.

The shelves aren’t for the cannery—Vic would never manage to sneak cheap pressboard and veneer past Jacob’s watchful eyes. Jacob’s Uncle Leon, however, is nowhere near as fussy. And since he’s only got one arm, he’ll need help putting together his new treasure.

It’s no surprise to find the instructions baffling and convoluted…but were they always so disturbingly dirty?

This PsyCop interlude is a cute, sexy romp that will delight readers who’ve enjoyed the series through PsyCop #3, Body and Soul.

Review

Even the name is a play on words! So raunchy! These guys are like teenage boys in this! Nothing in this but fun and smexy times!
