Books and Reviews – November 07, 2016

Good morning!

I just finished reading Hexmaker (Hexworld book 2) by Jordan L. Hawk.  It is a historical paranormal and it was wonderful!  This series brings a new look at witches and familiars.  Such fun!  I also enjoyed the author comments at the end of the book and the information about the historical research that was put into the book.    

hexmaker-by-jordan-l-hawkBlurb: A straight-laced policeman. A lighthearted thief. A murdered millionaire.

Fox shifter Malachi steals for one of the biggest crime rings in New York City. But when he witnesses the murder of a millionaire, the only person who can keep him safe is Dr. Owen Yates, forensic hexman for the Metropolitan Witch Police—and Malachi’s witch.

Owen is horrified to discover his familiar is an uneducated thief. Even worse, Malachi threatens to unleash Owen’s deepest desires…desires Owen can’t act upon, as he’s destined for an arranged marriage to secure the Yates family fortune

Their agreement: Malachi will be Owen’s lover as well as his partner, until the day of the wedding. But as their hunt for the murderer carries them from teeming slums to Fifth Avenue mansions, Owens begins to realize Malachi commands his heart as well as his body.

With dark forces drawing ever closer around them, Owen must decide whether to bow to the demands of duty, or to risk everything for the man he loves.

the-distance-by-alexa-landI also listened to The Distance by Alexa Land (Firsts and Forever Book 11), narrated by Greg Tremblay.  Another hit! I loved it.  This series has a contemporary setting and it is sweet and humorous and such a treat listening to Greg Tremblay narrate it.   Although it is a series, the books can be read standalone.  I jumped in at book #9 and did not feel lost at all.  I do plan on going back and reading the series from the beginning because I want to know more about the characters I have met.  

 

Blurb:

What if everything you think you know about someone is completely wrong?

Twenty-four-year-old Jessie thinks he has fellow street racer Kai all figured out. The tall, dark-haired Hawaiian might be gorgeous, but he’s also arrogant, angry, and a total menace when he gets behind the wheel. So why does an argument with Kai lead to the hottest sex of Jessie’s life?

As sex starts to give way to so much more, Jessie wants to trust Kai. But after a betrayal in his past cut Jessie to the core, that doesn’t come easily. Even if Kai proves to be far more than the gruff exterior he shows the world, Jessie’s sure he’ll screw up any chance at a relationship and get hurt all over again. He just needs to keep his distance, which would be a lot easier if the attraction between them wasn’t off the charts.

The Distance is the eleventh book in Alexa Land’s best-selling Firsts & Forever Series, but each book is written to stand alone, so jump in anywhere. The contemporary gay romance is approximately 100,000 words.

mapping-the-forest-by-brandon-wittI just started reading the new Brandon Witt book, Mapping the Forest (Rocky Mountain Boy’s #1).  I am enjoying it very much.  The cover is awesome too. 🙂

Blurb: Happily ever after has no map, but sometimes fate sends a guiding light.

Gabe Rice, a seasonal ranger at the Rocky Mountain National Park, can’t seem to get his life on the right trail. He loves the rugged beauty of the land, and there is no place he would rather live than the mountain community of Estes Park. But after six years, Gabe is beginning to wonder if he’ll ever get a full-time position or find love. When Gabe sees Luis—and hears his gorgeous singing—he’s compelled to meet him.

Luis Martinez, the new owner of a hotel and steak ride business in Estes, left California and a career as a therapist for a fresh start in Colorado. But even the beauty of the mountains can’t help him forget the past or move forward. Unprepared for his strong attraction to Gabe, Luis is ready to run and hide from emotions he never thought he’d have again.

Suddenly the path ahead opens to a future that looks brighter for both of them, if they can find the courage to walk forward—together.
