Mare's Review

3.5 This is so Josh stars

So Jefferson Blythe, such an easy read really. And truly it is very much a JL Book.

Did I view it as a NA contemporary? No I didn’t really.

It was definitely not heavy on the romance.

It reminded me a bit of Jake & Adrien…..

Or Adrien as a young man.

I find JL’s writing to be so poetic. It flows so well, and makes you feel so many things all at once. To me it is heart wrenching, her words, which is why I find I love to read her. I can re read her books and fall in love over and over again and each re read I learn more or I see things differently because I read it in a different mood.

“I kissed him with all the skill and experience I had, and though the shape of his mouth was different and the line of his jaw was harder and the taste of his tongue was most definitely male, it simply made it easier, sweeter, more right.” 

I will have to re read Jefferson at some point and see if I view it differently than I did the 1st time around.

The mystery wasn’t JL’s best and it was funny how silly the villain’s were.

And then there was George. He was tough nut to crack, I couldn’t get a read on him and I wanted him to wake the hell up and see what was in front of him.

I hope that we can get a short or something for Jefferson and George so we see a glimpse into the future, I would like a glimpse. Something? Anything?

All in all I thoroughly enjoyed this one.

Collide (Blackcreek Series, #1) by Riley Hart

18773407

At ten years old, Noah Jameson and Cooper Bradshaw collided mid-air when they dove for the same football. For three years, they were inseparable…until one day when Noah and his parents disappeared in the middle of the night.

Noah and Cooper never knew what happened to each other. Now, seventeen years later, after finding his boyfriend in bed with another man, Noah returns to Blackcreek looking for a fresh start. And damned if he doesn’t find his old friend grew up to be sexy as sin. Coop can’t believe Noah—the only person he trusted with the guilt over his parents’ death—is back. And gay… Or that Cooper himself suddenly wants another man in his bed for the first time.

There’s no denying the attraction and emotion between them, but can they overcome the ghosts of their pasts to have a future together?

This title contains two strong, sexy men, and a passionate friendship that transforms into a sizzling hot romance.

4 I’M IN LOVE WITH MY BFF STARS

Riley Hart, I loved your opening sentence! Anyone who can start a book with the word “MOTHERFUCKER” gets my sole attention 😉

This is a story of 2 best friends that literally COLLIDED with each other twice.

2 boys/men with demons that help each other in times of need. When they were boys and again as men.

Flashbacks onto their childhood, which are sweet moments btwn 2 friends, are added throughout this book and give us great clarity into the past.

There is angst because this is a GFY kinda book, lots of bashing through talk and being scared to come out of the closet.

“For the life of me, I will never understand why people give a shit who someone else loves.”

“Love doesn’t always make sense. Not whom we love or how we do it, but no one is perfect.”

I enjoyed walking in the shoes of both Noah and Cooper. I liked that we got POV from both men and I love how they knew that what they had was what they deserved.
