ARC Review: The Pirate of Fathoms Deep by Megan Derr


Fantasies aren't usually my thing but I somehow stumbled upon The High King's Golden Tongue and absolutely adored it wherein I then went and got lucky with this ARC (thanks netgalley and publisher!) and I loved every bit of it.

This is Lesto's story, the strong commander with the eye patch who loves to boss around the king. Though he may seem like a hard ass Lesto is in fact quite a softie and I adore him. In the first book there was a fleeting mention of a pirate who had dared punch the high commander in front of hundreds and in this book we hear more.

Shemal is a retired pirate as in he used to be a pirate but has now decided he's done with a life of crime and just wants to live peacefully, but trouble wont let go and when some halfwit thugs wind up on his doorstep asking for help with a kidnapping his life gets upended once more, for the "noble" the idiots thought they'd acquired is none other than the high commander Lesto Arseni, the same man he’d punched and then had a quick and hot encounter with and hasn't been a been able to get out of his mind. There's no way he's letting this sexy Commander get hurt even if helping him means endangering his own life.

Lesto hasn't forgotten the sexy Pirate and now here he is again, this time Lesto's not going to let him run. The pirate of Fathom's deep is his, who cares how much his brother and the king will needle him about it. Once an Arseni makes up his mind there’s no changing it.

Both Lesto and Shemal are such sweetheart loveable characters with hard exteriors like M&Ms!

I really enjoyed this book it was shorter than the first but that just means it had less long winding story and had much more sex, who would have thought The High Commander Lesto Arseni of Fathoms Deep was such a hungry little bottom. I've really enjoyed this series honestly Megan Derr is not an author I've had much interaction with maybe It's time that changed for this series has been great and I plan on reading the next one as soon as It's out.

ARC Review: Where There's A Will by Cari Z.


Thanks to the publisher for the ARC <3

This is a series I've really enjoyed reading not only because it's an MM read which is a must but as everyone knows, I'm a huge superhero fan Marvel, DC, whatever. Now where the last two books focused on the villains Mad Bombardier and MasterMind this book is all about their unlikely superhero buddy, Freight Train or Craig as he actually prefers to go by.

Being a superhero isn't all it's cracked up to be. Craig didn't really set out to be a superhero but fate just kinda happened. If being widely admired means never getting to touch someone than Craig would have been better off helping his city by being a regular police man.

Then he meets Dr. Mansourian the new scientist who's helping him understand his powers. Craig is instantly attracted to him too bad he can't touch him.

When things go belly up in the hero world, more specifically his "friend" Mr. Fantastic, it's Craig who's in hot water and will need his allies on both sides to be the heroes of this hero.

Ahhh I love hero books! wish there were more MM ones out there but they're far and few between :(

Really fun read I highly recommend.

Beyond the Sea by Keira Andrews


Thanks for the ARC Keira!

As is the usual with Keira's books I loved it.

Rock star Troy and Pilot Brian crash land on a remote deserted island and have to survive long enough to be rescued. Nothing brings people together faster than being stranded on a little island right? For weeks with only each other for company through fishing for dinner and cracking coconuts and collecting rainwater to survive their relationship starts to get complicated.

But is there shared struggle enough to keep something going even after getting back to their completely separate worlds?

I don't think I'd ever read a survivalist book before, well there was the Hatchet back in school but that was forever ago. This was a really fun read and I greatly enjoyed it. I’m not sure if I'd be so levelheaded myself in such a situation I’d probably curl up in a sandy corner and die.

ARC Trailer Trash by Marie Sexton


First of all thanks to the publisher for the ARC!

Wow, I really loved this.

A historical, at least to me since it's before my time. 1986, Apparently when AIDS was sweeping through the gay community and people didn't have the info to be safe and not judge.

Nate just moved to this dying little town in Wyoming from Austin, Texas with his cop dad after his parents split and he's not happy. There's no tennis team here, no swim team only a bunch of small minded red necks and Cody. Cody whom he connects with immediately after meeting him behind a gas station.

Cody is from the worst part of town, living with his mother in a crappy old trailer, they barely have enough money to eat and definitely not enough for new school clothes. His impoverished looks and rumors that follow him about keep him an outcast.

Two kids from completely different worlds have no chance of staying friends but despite having their rough patches they somehow manage to keep what they have alive.

I loved both boys; I love how despite having all the attributes needed to be besties with the "cool" kids Nate rejected their stupid and went with the outcast who is one of the few actually good things in this town. Cody, well i'm rather surprised he's still alive honestly, coming from such depression with his poor mother doing whatever it took to keep them from the street, with everyone looking at him with disdain that's enough to bring most people to drugs or the barrel of a gun.

This book is way more than two boys from opposite sides of the track coming together. Crazy full of feeling, honestly made me tear up a time or three.

Though we never really got to meet Eli he's the one running the show in Part & Parcel

Nick is still recovering from the injuries he sustained in Miami you know where he almost died D: (that was terrifying) on a particularly dreary day he finally opens the box that Eli's mom gave him forever ago and discovers some hard to read letters hand written by Eli himself instructing him to assemble the gang for a road trip.

Throughout the whole painful trip through feels land Nick and Kelly work out their problems in their relationship, Ty is Ty and Zane is Zane.

This book was pretty cool it not only focused on Nick and Kelly but the whole group we learn what Ty and Zane are up to and some new stuff on Owen and Digger oh and there's kittens! Ty brings his kittens along on the road :D lots of cute.
