Boystown 5: Murder Book - Marshall Thornton

Boystown 4

Boystown 4: A Time For Secrets - Marshall Thornton

”You’re mine.”

 

Easily the best and most intriguing mystery yet. But damn...my heart is getting a workout here. 

One Man's Trash

One Man's Trash - Marie Sexton

Wow. Easily one of my favorite books this year. What a complex relationship. Love Warren and eagerly await Gray’s story.

“Listen to me, Tay: you are my roses. Do you understand what I’m saying? And it kills me when you ask me to cut you down.”

 

Wow.

Little Boy Dead: A Boystown Prequel - Marshall Thornton

They say nice guys finish last. I think that’s crap. Nice guys don’t even get to finish.

Boystown 3

Boystown 3: Two Nick Nowak Novellas - Marshall Thornton

My heart...my heart. I’m not sure I expected the emotional gut punch hidden amongst these mysteries. Gaaahhh. My heart breaks for these men especially during this time of discovery.

Then, I looked into the second bedroom, the smaller one. Harker slept in a twin bed. There was a desk, where I imagined he’d occasionally do some casework; a bureau where he kept his clothes; and nothing else. A monk could have lived in that room.

I felt bad for him. His personality seemed not to be present in his own home. Yeah, he’d allowed that to happen, but that was such an easy thing to do: allowing other people to imagine you the way they’d like you to be; fulfilling that; being the person they wished you to be. That was always the easier choice. I could see Mrs. Harker crushing him for forty-three years and not even knowing she was doing it.

 

 

Gaaahhh Harker. 

Ink

Ink - Sarah Goodwin, Victoria Moule

Phew. There is a lot going on in this and what begins as quite the seductive read quickly turns dark as these characters deal with their addictions and trapped lives. But what transpires is just beautiful and not your typical romance. I loved all of our main characters, how they are intertwined and what constitutes family and love is quite thought provoking. I ended up loving all the father figures in this. Michael especially. And while his actions may seem over the top in terms of acceptance...I have to believe that as a loving parent you’d do and want anything to see your child happy...and that’s exactly what he does.

 

This book is now available for free on the author’s website ... https://sarahlgoodwin.wordpress.com/tag/ink/

...and while an excellent story there are a lot of typos and overall editing issues. So just look past these elements and see the beauty of the story within.

 

Highly recommended.

Daniel looks at him, at the sad, strange boy who seems to be doing everything he can to become just a body, just a junkie or an alcoholic –someone who will be pitied, tolerated in later life, but not loved. Never that. How can you love someone that loves only a poison? How can you offer yourself, your heart to someone whose heart has been eaten away?

Taboo Series (Books 1-5)

Taboo 5  - Kol Anderson

Honestly this had some potential and at the end of Book 2 I was quite intrigued by where this was headed. Unfortunately between episodes it was almost like the author changed his mind on where to take the story and this happened between every single episode.  Overall it was just all over the place and I never got a sense I understood anyone EVER...much less what would drive any of these people to do what they were doing.  

 

Add to that...my heavens the editing got worse with every book.  Quite disappointing.

 

Definite potential but lost its edge and its direction too many times to fully enjoy.
