~Release day review~ Unsteady by Melissa Collins

Unsteady (On Solid Ground, #3)Unsteady by Melissa Collins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Sometimes there’s a moment in a story where you literally say ‘why?’ Out loud. An emotional gut punch that completely changes how you feel about a character.
I loved this story but it had one of those moments for me with Jude. Micah was beautiful and amazing and strong and I adored him. And I loved Jude too….until I didn’t. For someone who swore he learned from his mistake when he made it the first time and it caused Micah to disappear from his life for a decade….he sure in the heck didn’t. And Micah forgave that way to easily and quickly in my opinion.
And even though the story ended the way I hoped it would…..it still just wasn’t the same for me if that one moment hadn’t happened.
I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

BLURB:

Micah Hudson and Jude MacMillian were both lonely teenagers. One the new kid
and one the target of relentless bullying, they quickly became friends. But
when friendship grew into more, the relationship was too much for either to
handle. As their tenuous bond was tested, everything tumbled down, leaving
them lonely once again.

A decade later, Micah is on the brink of losing his will to live. Beyond
exhausted from lying to everyone, including himself, Micah thinks of the one
person who knows his deepest secret. Desperate and alone, Micah makes the
only decision he feels he has: he must leave. But his need for closure
depends on one thing.

Can Jude make room in his Unsteady life for Micah once again?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Melissa Collins has always been a book worm. Studying Literature in college ensured that her nose was always stuck in a book. She followed her passion for reading to the most logical career choice: English teacher. Her hope was to share her passion for reading and the escapism of books to her students. Having spent more than a decade in front of a classroom, she can easily say that it’s been a dream.
Her passion for writing didn’t start until more recently. When she was home on maternity leave in early 2012, she read her first romance novel and her head filled with the passion, angst and laughter of the characters who she read about it. It wasn’t long before characters of her own took shape in her mind. Their lives took over Melissa’s brain and The Love Series was born.

BLURB

Miles Sorenson prides himself on his brutal honesty. Facts and logic are a hell of a lot easier to deal with than emotions. He’s got his career and a small, close-knit group of friends, and he doesn’t need nor want anything else. The total opposite of Quinn Barker, who doesn’t take life too seriously and thinks a good laugh can cure anything.

When Quinn takes Miles home, it’s supposed to be a one-time deal. Except they really click in the sack and end up spending the weekend together, enjoying each other’s bodies as much as their company…to Miles’s dismay. Matters get even more muddled when, months later, they run into each other at the popular West Hollywood bar, Wild Side, and pick up right where they left off.

On the surface, Quinn and Miles are like oil and water, but the draw between them is undeniable. As their lives further entwine, they realize there’s more to their connection than the way they singe the sheets together.

But demons from the past have a way of catching up, and no matter how strong the link is tying Miles and Quinn together, the pressure may be enough to make it snap.

EXCERPT

Quinn leaned back on the couch and crossed his arms. Miles knew he wasn’t going to say anything. That he would sit there and wait until Miles got out whatever he needed to get out, and he was partially thankful for it but also annoyed. He didn’t want to feel like he could read Quinn and he sure as shit didn’t want Quinn to be able to read him.

“You’re driving me out of my fucking mind.” Miles ran a hand over his head as he started to pace the room.

“Me? What did I do?”

“I don’t fucking know and that’s the thing that’s driving me batshit crazy. I don’t like not having the answers, Quinn. One plus one is always two. It’s always been two for me, but now there are all these fucking variables that make me continuously come up with a different answer.” He had no idea if what he was saying made any sense. It did in his head, but by the way Quinn’s brows knitted together, he was pretty sure Quinn had reduced him to speaking gibberish.

“Me spending the weekend with you? That was not one plus one equaling two. Me coming home with you from Wild Side and staying when you asked? Nope. Not two either. Asking about your past sure as hell wasn’t two and texting and emailing isn’t two and playing video games and telling you about my past is as far from fucking two as you can get.”

“So, I’m kind of like the anti-two?” Quinn asked and Miles stopped moving. He turned and looked at him and, motherfucker, he wanted to kiss him. Wanted to shove Quinn to his knees and force his cock into Quinn’s mouth and fuck it.

“You’re ridiculous.”

“But you’re also smiling…and looking at me like you want to jump my bones. Looks like I might earn my treat after all.”

He wanted to laugh. Damn it all to hell, he wanted to fucking laugh but this was serious to him. Miles needed to understand what was going on.

“Why aren’t you two?” he asked, hating the vulnerability in his voice. He’d never been vulnerable to anyone in his life, outside of Chance and Oliver.

Quinn sighed. “Maybe I am two. Maybe I’m not. Maybe I’m just a really good fuck or maybe you realize you’re tired of keeping yourself closed off or maybe we’re destined to be best friends. Maybe we’ll just screw each other’s brains out for a few weeks and then never see each other again, and that’s the way it’s supposed to be. You can’t always have the answers.”

“But I need them,” he said simply, because it was true.”

~Release Day Review~ Tied to You (Wild Side Book #2) by Riley Hart

Tied to You (Wild Side, #2)Tied to You by Riley Hart
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Some books you read and you know right away that they are going to be brutal, that you’ll feel like you’re dragging your heart across broken glass until you get to the end. Those are the ones that you sigh with relief at the end, proud of yourself for reading it but also happy that it’s over…so you can recover now.
But then there are books like this one…

~”You make me f*ing crazy. Like you fit into this empty space I didn’t know I had.”

….Books like this, where you start it and immediately you know, you just know, how incredibly special it’s going to be, how it’s going to embed something amazing in your heart that you will keep feeling, and keep wanting to feel, forever.

~”Miles didn’t feel like himself. It was as though being with Quinn made him a different man. A better man.”

Everything in this just clicked perfectly – from the playful banter between Quinn and Miles, to Miles’ stubborn walls, to Quinn’s innate ability to figure out how to knock them down.

~”Quinn’s heart banged against his chest, beat Miles’s name.”

When you critique a book, you look for something, anything, to say that it’s not totally, utterly perfect in every way….but I couldn’t find a flaw in this one if I tried…..
It’s just that…..yes….perfect.

~Review~ The Struggle Within by Tyler May

The Struggle WithinThe Struggle Within by Tyler May
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

How can I put this to make you understand? I’m just going to throw it out there because I need to get it out – this is not only a book that you need to read, it’s a book that you should read, a book that you have to read – because it’s relevant, because it’s meaningful, because it’s important. Is it hard? Definitely. But there is reward from that difficulty. Not the reward of getting through the book. No. I’m talking about the reward of learning something, something that will mean something to you, something that you’ll maybe want to help with or maybe not but at least now you’ll know. And the more people who know – the more there are who can and will help. This book will not only change your heart, it just might change your life.
