Hello Forever by Sarina Bowen

I was sure the entire series would deal with Paradise “drop-outs” but it’s not. This time we’re getting two whole new characters. Caleb and Josh’s tenant in their new house.

I love how Sarina Bowen builds her characters. Always so complex and inspiring.

mythoughts

Axel and Cax have known each other since they were eight years old, during diocese activities. They also both knew they were gay, and both enjoyed each other’s company . But when each discovered the truth about the other and act on it, their lives as they known it are over. Well, as over as they can be for 16 year olds.Read More »

Regret by Christina Lee

Regret RDB BannerSometimes there are authors you can’t help but read. And Christina Lee is one of them. I have always loved her storytelling and every time my addiction is reaffirmed. Regret is one of those stories you know will stay with you, and it has. It’s a beautiful take on tragedy and healing.

I wonder how many of us experience something so profoundly and it leaves such a lasting (sometimes negative) impression on their lives that they truly regret their role in it. Read More »

The Cartographer by Tamsen Parker

You cannot possibly realize how long I’ve been waiting for this book. Unconsciously, since the time I read Personal Geography. At that time, I didn’t even know there was going to be a Rey story. Consciously, since December 2015. That’s when I met Tamsen Parker and we had a great few hours of dining, talking and walking around NYC.

I’m going to reread all six books in the Compass series, but not before I write my review of The Cartographer (cleverly titled book, might I add).

I’m still in denial over the fact that the series is complete. But what a way to end it. Yowza!

mythoughts

Rey is a character that’s involved in each and every story throughout the first five novels in the series. He’s India’s best friend and “trainer”, he’s the one most responsible for her ending up with Crispin, and he’s the most selfless character in the kink world I think I’ve ever read.

In TC we get glimpses of his childhood by way of explaining some of his considerations and decision making process in his line of work and in his personal life.

Lost and Found Sisters by Jill Shalvis

LAFS Banner

I adore everything by Jill Shalvis that I’ve read before, so when I learned there’s a new series she’s writing, I jumped at the chance of getting a copy.

I was not disappointed.

mythoughts

Quinn Weller, a chef in a fancy schmancy LA restaurant, lost her sister in a car crash a couple of years ago, and since then she’s been going through the motions of life but without really living it. When she’s approached one day by a man claiming she’s the heir of a woman who’s recently passed, she’s shocked to find out the sweet woman that chatted with her at the coffee house was her biological mother.Read More »
