Kerry Pickering has a problem. As a publicist for Hollywood bad boy Jericho Knox, it’s Kerry’s job to keep Jericho in the news. So far, Jericho’s partying and public escapades have made it easy.

Review

(Book Reviewed Here Previously)

Does anyone remember a movie from the 90s “Muriel’s Wedding?” http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0110598/   Well, that’s what this story reminds me of.

Kerry is a “nobody” who ends up sorta kinda forced into an “engagement” with a douche Hollywood star. He never really wanted to be in the spotlight, only to do his job, but as the only gay guy in the office he’s forced to be helpful.

Jericho resents being in the closet, so he’s psyched when he ends up accidentally outing himself to the world but he thinks Kerry is a social climber, so he’s a dick to him.

It doesn’t take long for these two to find their attraction for the other but it does take awhile for them to have any feelings more than lust. There isn’t a lot of steam in this – less than some of the others in the Dreamspun series.

I thought that the writing was excellent, and the pacing good, but I never liked Jericho much or felt he and Kerry had a super strong connection. In the end I understood him better, but he spent a long time on my “why would Kerry put up with that” list.

In the end, it was cute and sweet, I liked it but it didn’t really “wow” me. I think that some of MJ O’Shea’s other books like her Insolita Luna Series are much better. https://www.goodreads.com/series/54115-insolita-luna

John Solo does a solid job narrating this. He gives Kerry a lighter, but not effeminate voice and Jericho a nice Southern drawl. There are a few other secondary characters with accents and he does a nice job with them as well. John Solo is good with pacing and timing – the humor and the emotional parts, he definitely added to my overall enjoyment of this story by giving it a bit more depth and making it feel more lively. I definitely think this is the best way to enjoy this story.

Romancing the Wrong Twin by Clare London

release day review

Dreamspinner Presents

https://www.dreamspinnerpress.com/books/romancing-the-wrong-twin-by-clare-london-7615-b

perf4.250x7.000.inddBlurb

How tangled can a romantic web get?

When gruff mountaineer Dominic Hartington-George seeks sponsorship for his latest expedition, his London PA insists on a more media-friendly profile—like dating celebrity supermodel Zeb Z.

Zeb can’t make the date, so he asks his identical twin, Aidan, to stand in for just one evening. Aidan, a struggling playwright, shuns the limelight to the extent people don’t even know Zeb has a sibling, but he reluctantly agrees.

When the deception has to continue beyond the first date, Aidan fights to keep up the pretense. Dominic likes his sassy, intelligent companion, and Aidan starts falling for the forthright explorer. But how long can Aidan’s conscience cope as confusion abounds? Will coming clean as “the other twin” destroy the trust they’ve built?

 

Review

This felt more “tongue in cheek” than some of the other Dreamspun Desires books. Both MCs felt a bit more like caricatures than authentic people, though they were fun and interesting.

I was a bit disappointed that we didn’t get to see more of the melding between the supposed model and the mountaineer – that definitely wasn’t the focus. Most of this was the banter between two pretty cantankerous individuals and then battling the paparazzi.

It’s very British and I love that! I also really liked the soft approach to dealing with Dom’s father issues.

I never got a great feel for Aidan and what he wanted/needed, and I wish we could have spent more time with him and Dom as a couple where everything was laid out and honest. (Especially before the “ILYs”)

It was a fun and funny story with some clever and unique plot twists but I wasn’t as compelled by the romance between these two than I had been in other Dreamspun books. I’d recommend it for a fun/funny read – especially if you love British humor!

61hl0obkozl-_sl300_Blurb

Politics, puppy dogs, and passion, oh my!

When his Republican opponent outs him with a photo in a Facebook post, Senator Samuel Dalton doesn’t have many options open to him. It doesn’t matter that the photo is totally innocent. He has no choice but to come clean… until his staff suggest putting a spin on it that leaves Sam reeling.

Sure, he’ll end up with a lot of sympathy, not to mention the possibility of more voters from the LGBT community, but it still seems a pretty drastic solution.

Now all they have to do is persuade Gary, the other man in the photo, to play along. It sounds so easy: convince the constituents of North Carolina that he and Sam are engaged.

No big deal, except for the fact that they’ve only just met….

Review

(Book reviewed here previously)

You have to remember that this entire line of books is designed to be like the old Harlequin romances where reality is something the readers is escaping and fairy tale endings are the expected outcome. There is nothing about this that is remotely “believable” and there are many plot holes and just plain silly plot devices, but the story is really sweet, very sappy, and a lot of fun!

I loved the fact that our senator is a 33 year old virgin! Loved it! I loved how sweet and slow and step by slow-burning step Sam (the senator) is introduced to “making love”. From chaste kisses to over the pants petting – our guy isn’t rushed into any part of the physical relationship he shares with Gary.

The story even has two guys who still smoke! That should tell you something right there! (It does take place in North Carolina – tobacco central! – so I guess that’s just a little authenticity.) Sam’s staff is fun, as is his mother. The evil opposition is suitably devious and slimy and the “we fell in love for real” story line is as predictable as it is adorable.

KC Wells is a good writer and I got hooked right from the beginning. I didn’t have high expectations, so I wasn’t disappointed, but I also found myself rolling my eyes quite a bit at some of the plot twists and turns. This was a fun little story that had me remembering those old romances I used to read and smiling fondly. (Plus a super cute dog!)

If you’re in the mood for something ridiculously fun and frivolous, this is the story for you!

John Solo gives each of the many characters a unique voice and is a great choice for this story.  His “southern” accent is great and he gives Sam this drawl that really suits him.  He also manages to make Gary sound young, but not childish and it really works.  This is a great way to enjoy this story.

Suddenly Yours by Jacob Z Flores

suddenly-yours

Blurb

What happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas.

Cody Hayes is having one epic morning-after. The hangover following a Vegas bachelor party is nothing new to him, and neither is the naked man in his bed.

His apparent marriage is a different story.

Carefully plotting every detail of his life carried Julian Canales to a Senate seat as an openly gay man. A drunken night of Truth or Dare isn’t like him… and neither is marrying a man he just met. He’d get an annulment, but the media has gotten wind of his hasty nuptials. If Julian’s political career is going to survive, he has to stay married to a man who’s his opposite in every way.

Now he must convince Cody that all they need to do is survive a conservative political rival, a heartbroken ex, their painful pasts… and an attraction neither man can fight.

 

Review

What fun this was! Jacob Flores knows how to give us fun characters and even in this situation, a believable and compelling romance.

What I loved about this story was the explanation behind the two staying married felt really “real” to me. Sure, the marriage started as a Very Bad Idea, but when examined in the light of day, it was actually plausible. It made swallowing the whole thing more palatable.

The Dreamspun Desires line is a “light steam” when it comes to smexy times, so I think that influenced how the sex was handled between the two MCs. If I could change anything, I’d have changed that. It was the only thing that felt a little forced. To me, I couldn’t see these two denying themselves for any fake time table when their chemistry was so clearly OTT.

I loved Julian’s optimism and Cody’s realism. The two really balanced the other out, and kept them working on their relationship when others would have bailed.

The dialog/banter between the two was fun, and the relative angst felt appropriate and not too much.

I really enjoyed this and think it’s one of the best in this series so far!

Highly recommended!

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.

51EpWjnXl3L._SL300_Blurb

Faery royalty have always married for duty rather than love. Prince Chrysanths should be no different – except with a human for a father, the prince known as Puck already is different. When he is betrothed against his will to Prince Sky, Puck flees to his father in the human world, only to have Sky follow.

Prince Sky Song of the Clouds isn’t thrilled with the prospect of marriage either, but is bound by duty to follow through – if he can’t win Puck over, the faery realm might very well dissolve into utter chaos. Too busy arguing, Puck and Sky are unaware there are others with a vested interest in seeing the betrothal fail. In a bid for Puck’s crown, they’ll seek to keep them apart, even as Puck and Sky realize that duty and love don’t always have to be mutually exclusive.

Review

(book previously reviewed here: http://kimichanexperience.com/betrothed-by-therese-woodson/)

(Abridged)

Puck is heir to the Earth throne and Sky to the Air throne. They are forced into a political alliance/marriage that neither wants, but Puck throws the most resistance at actually making it happen.

Puck pouts and returns to his father, on Earth, forcing Sky to follow, even though he could be hurt. There, Puck treats Sky like crap for two weeks, trying to get Sky to renounce the betrothal.

Sky perseveres however and eventually even Puck realizes that there is more than just politics at play and that perhaps an alliance between them won’t be all bad.

**

The first half of the book is full of Puck being an ass. He’s an admitted brat, but slowly and surely he and Sky grow closer. They are super cute together. Sky’s learning of the human world is sometimes adorable and the growing attraction between them is sweet.

When they finally do give it a go as a couple I was entranced and fully engaged in their love story. My only complaint was that we spent so much time with them struggling that I’d have appreciated them as a happy couple for longer than a chapter or two.

I also thought that the extra drama with the opposing house of fire was un-necessary. Simply going from adamantly opposed to in love was enough work for this story.

However, this was truly wonderful book by and large and by a new to me author and I highly recommend it and will look for more of the author’s work in the future gladly.

Matthew Lloyd Davies did an EXCELLENT job narrating this. He did the fairy voices in his loveley British accent and I giggled when he was forced to put on an American accent (which he did remarkably well!) I definitely thought this added to my overall enjoyment and highly recommend this as a way to enjoy this lovely story.

Marriage gets less convenient when love is involved.

It started simple: Ondrej Kovac marries Archie Katsaros so Ondrej can stay in the US, away from his judgmental family in eastern Europe. Archie marries Ondrej in exchange for the money to bail out his failing company. It’s a fraud neither man is convinced he can pull off.

But as Archie introduces Ondrej to New York society and Ondrej proves his skill in the office, they start to discover a connection between them. Can they overcome the rocky foundation their relationship was built on, meddling immigration agents, gossip columnists determined to out their deception, and an aggressive executive set on selling Archie’s company out from under him? Only if they can prove to each other their love is worth fighting for.

Review

Ondrej (pronounced Andre) has inherited some money from his grandfather and has a desire to leave his oppressive Czech home to explore New York. He gets an internship with Archie’s company and enjoys his work there. When his internship ends and he fails to get another job to extend his visa, he and Archie work out an agreement wherein he gets a green card and Archie’s company gets a cash influx.

Now the two, who were never even interested in one another before, are forced into a relationship that has them in the public eye.

**

This story, with it’s forced marriage trope, should have been one of my favorites. I love the idea of “arranged marriages or marriages of convenience” but this just didn’t work for me as much as I’d like it to. It’s not easy for me to put my finger on my issues with the story, but the one thing I can think to say is it lacked a “passionate” feel.  It wasn’t a bad story – not at all – it just wasn’t anything that made me feel super compelled to keep reading.

First, I never quite felt the chemistry between Ondrej and Archie. It was a bit too dry. Almost, “since we’re here we might as well have sex” instead of “now I have an excuse to hump you like crazy!”. Even when they are having their “sex marathon” I didn’t feel their passion.

Second, I didn’t like Ondrej’s character much. He was a bit too laid back for me. I didn’t see him as passionate about anything in particular.

Finally, there wasn’t much passion in the rest of the story. The angst was tepid at best and didn’t do much to keep my interest. Yes, they were worried about the company and proving their marriage was “real” but – for whatever reason – I didn’t feel any real urgency about these issues.

The epilogue was super sweet and did manage to bring up my estimation a bit, but I wish that level of passion had been kept throughout the story.

The writing was technically good and I didn’t find editing errors, but I wasn’t that compelled by this couple. It might just be a matter of taste or timing, and if you like the trope you might have a different feel, so I urge you to read other reviews and see if it appeals to others in a way that didn’t work for me.

Naughty Cupid By Deanna Wadsworth

Dreamspinner Presents

naughty-cupidBlurb

2nd Edition

The name’s Lio, and you may have read the beginning of my story in A Cupid’s Wager. Well, hold on to your hats, because there’s more to tell about your favorite cupid working in the Gay Division of the Inter-Dimensional Association of Cupids.

Remember Ethan? That Aztec god of the winds who busted me shooting a closeted human with a gay lust arrow? Yeah, I haven’t been able to forget him either. Even though I have a rule against getting it on with other supernaturals—especially ones working for the Straight Division—my magic is drawn to Ethan and all his tattoos and piercings in a way I cannot control.

But after that night of mind-numbing sex, now I gotta face my evil ex-boyfriend and a suspension by the IDAC for “misplacing” arrows. They took my quiver, and I have to figure out how to get my arrow privileges back before they’re taken forever.

Ethan seems to think he can help me, but I don’t know how anybody can make this cupid believe in love again.

First Edition published as A Cupid’s Wager by Dreamspinner Press, 2014.

Review

Oh my goodness! This was an amazing story. It had passion, humor, pop culture, mythos, hurt/comfort, steamy sexy times and sweet romance.

Lio is a cupid who has been burned by a lover in the past. He now doesn’t believe in love and in fact is out to prove that there is a bias against being gay in the department of cupids. He’s been “accidentally” hitting closeted gay guys with lust arrows for years and now the time has come for him to explain himself to his superiors. In the meantime he “accidentally” hits Ethan, a straight Aztec God of the Winds with a lust arrow and is shocked when Ethan hits on him. (The arrows only work if the person is open to being gay…)

Ethan’s story isn’t as simple as all that. Yes, he was married to a woman. Yes, he identified previously as gay, but there’s something more to his relationship with Lio than just lust.

Together they must fight Lio’s evil ex, the judgment that comes down upon Lio and the Fates themselves to be together.

Most importantly, however, Ethan has to fight Lio and the walls he’s built around his heart.

**

The writing is sharp and the wit is refreshing. All the characters have depth and are enaging. The mythos, though admittedly bastardized, is fascinating, and the love story – while “instant” in some aspects- is more hard won than a lot of others.

I loved Lio and Ethan together. Ethan’s brother, Quetzalcoatl, and Lio’s best friend Wally are equally amazing and my only wish was that they’d have more on page time.

Nothing is off limits in this story and I found myself laughing out loud many times in shock and with great humor.

This is a long story that reads quickly and I highly recommend it to anyone with a sense of humor, a love of the paranormal or a love for “fated mates” (and piercings! YUM!)

61Z2DSgX5+L._SL300_Blurb

The paranormal world is in chaos. The elders are tired of their younger people playing the field, causing trouble, and fighting with each other. Everyone who attends the UPAC Conference now has 24 hours to claim a mate of a different species. If they don’t, they will never have a mate. The spell is cast. There is no escaping the Midnight Matings. Beauregard Stratford is a bunny shifter. Simple enough, right? Unfortunately, he is the only white bunny shifter in existence. He also is cursed with violet eyes, hyperactivity, a strong weakness for anything shiny, and a penchant for leaving bubble gum everywhere. When he finds himself mated to Sebastian Drakus, a dragon shifter and prince of his kind, Beauregard can’t seem to make himself behave no matter how hard he tries. He wants to be good, to make Sebastian proud of him, really he does, but things just keep happening to him, bubble gum mishaps, getting drunk, not to mention that fact that he is a true bunny and constantly horny. Nothing seems to go right. Can he convince Sebastian he’s worth the trouble, or will the dragon prince wash his hands of the whole bunny fiasco?

Review

If you are in the mood for something just silly, fun, sexy, and sentimental – this is for you!

This is an entire series, but you don’t necessarily have to read them in order. The first little bit explains the setting/rules for why there is an enforced order for shifters to find mates of an opposite species – something about strengthening bonds and diminishing in-fighting. Everyone is given some drug that compels them to find a mate – and they must claim them within 24 hours of drinking the drug. Then they must have sex similar to what you’d see on websites such as watchmygirlfriend.xxx with them once a day for the next several years or risk losing the ability to shift forever. So… you can imagine how this is gonna play out!

In this one, the Prince of Dragons, Sebastian, finds a “nobody” bunny, Beuaregard, and mates him. But little Beuaregard is disarming and absolutely charms the heck out of Sebastian with every little whisker twitch.

It turns out bunny shifters – male and female – can get pregnant! This causes a ton of problems between Sebastian and Beuaregard when Sebastian ASSUMES it’s not his baby… disaster almost strikes but luckily they figure things out just in time.

It’s a really funny, sexy and sweet story – most of the stories in this series are like this – and I highly recommend it for fans of shifter romance.

Audio

Johnny East gives this a very melodramatic sort of feel – he’s fun to listen to in that “soap opera” way and I enjoyed listening to it very much.
