Julien by Ella Frank: Review by Lost in a Book

Julien (Confessions #2)

Blurb:

People are complex.
Love a double-edged sword.
And when it comes to a broken heart, there are no rules, only time…

For the past eight years, Julien Thornton has been living with a secret. One that only a handful of people know about.

To the outside world, he has it all.
A thriving career. A loving husband. And a face that the American public fell for by the millions, on a reality show that inadvertently saved his life.

But behind the shine of celebrity, behind the easygoing nature, a crippling truth fills Julien with pain and self-loathing. It’s a truth that he fights to overcome daily with the help of his husband, Joel Priestley, and now their boyfriend, Robbie Bianchi.

But unlike Priest, Robbie doesn’t know what he’s helping Julien to fight. He doesn’t know what Julien did all those years ago. And with the anniversary of his sister’s death fast approaching, the time for explanations is running out.

And thus the question: will the princess be able to forgive the prick as the priest once did?

Only time will tell.

**Please note this book contains sensitive situations regarding drug use.**

*Psssssttttt* I’ll tell you a secret… I’m holding out for Priest. He’s the dessert I’ve been waiting to devour. I’m not saying I haven’t enjoyed Robbie and Julien, I’m just being clear and upfront that Priest is where it’s at for me.

holding.gif

This story is aptly named because it goes through Julien’s mysterious history that we understand from the first story, runs very deep. Much of Julien’s POV are flashbacks either he has or stories he is telling. Robbie and Priest help Julien navigate through the emotional turmoil in their own way with Priest’s solid support and Robbie’s ray of light shining through all the darkness.

We still get all three POVs in Julien as the men continue to find their footing as a relationship of three. For me, the Julien situation is overshadowed by the connection that grew with Robbie and Priest. I’m was for that too since I love Robbie and Priest HARD! They become more comfortable as a duo outside and inside the bedroom. Lemme just say, the closet and shower scenes… 🔥🔥🔥

<b>“We are allowed to do whatever we like to whomever we like within the three of us. There’s no room or cause for jealousy. There has to be trust, honesty, and total transparency.”</b>

Robbie, Julien, and Priest are still hot together but the focus is more on deepening the connection with everyone as duos and a trio. The situation with Julien had an EPIC build-up. I was expecting something insanely unthinkable and once everything was revealed, I had a moment of “that’s it?” I’m not saying the situation as it happened wouldn’t leave scars, I just went way worse in my mind based on the reactions and emotions prior to the reveal.

Julien is an enjoyable follow-up to Robbie but didn’t quite hit the same enjoyment level as the first (which had insane levels of reading excite). I definitely recommend this book. Now, *SQUEEEEEE* it’s time for my dessert Priest.

Campus Life

Campus Life (CYOA #2) by T.C. Orton: Review by Lost in a Book for @BMBR

Synopsis:
All books in this series are stand alone. 
A choose your own adventure for adults! 

Young, dumb, and full of… You get the picture.

Welcome to Mentis University, your name is Joseph Smith and you’ve been unremarkable all your life. No – really, you’ve been absolutely, unequivocally, insert-smart-word-here mundane since the day the doctor slapped your ass and you let out a sigh. HOWEVER, you did manage to achieve one thing this year – you transferred to a better college. Bravo! (Mentis University has been rated number 2 on Top 10 worst colleges to attend for the last seven years… Guess where you were before this)

Since no one else from your hometown of – insert rural American town here – managed to claw their way out of mediocrity, you decided there was no point in hiding anymore. And thus, at an energetic twenty-one years old, you’re now an openly gay man. Congratulations.

Of course, there’s not much point in being openly gay if there are no gays to be in your opening. So, after spending a few days getting accustomed to your new life, you flopped onto your single bed, closed your eyes, and prayed to the lord… (And you’re still waiting for the day Cher tweets you back)

“Please,” you begged. “Guide me to a man who will treat me right… or pound me like a piece of veal.”

Luckily for you, someone was listening…

Dear Reader

You will assume the role of Joe Smith (first-person, present tense) and guide him through his final year of college. Don’t worry, you won’t be expected to do anything as absurd as learn mathematics, but you will, on occasion, be provided with choices that will impact the outcome of the story.

I’ll be honest, I was squeeing for this before I ever read the blurb. This is my first foray into CYOA as an adult. I was obsessed with them growing up and didn’t even know they had an option for them in romance. *dreamy sigh* There are times when I read and just want to yell at the characters in a book for the decisions they are making and this format obviously puts the power in my hands…. which apparently I was pervy AF when I started because WHOA… that was quite a rabbit hole I fell down.

rabbithole.gif

Campus Life puts you in the driver’s seat of college senior, Joe Smith. You are faced with decisions of the student variety from roommate fights to coffee crisis and coming out to lusting after a hot ass professor.

There are a plethora of directions to go, with completely different outcomes. It’s a short, quick, and OTT read. This isn’t a deep story where you leave with new appreciation for life and humanity. It’s silly, lacks depth with characters and plot, and even the less sex focused choices end in lots of sex. I went super pervy the first time through *shrug* and ended up saying “Yes, sir” and being on board with being called a slut. *shrug* There was a tad more character development when I went the complete opposite route and wanted to find a nice guy with more substance than filling holes… still had lots of sex but there was a tiny bit more to that story than me being on my knees.

curiousity.gif

It was a light, quick, and entertaining read. Recommended for fans of CYOA-pornyland looking for a break from serious.

Urban Soul Series

Misfits (Urban Soul #1) & Strays (Urban Soul #2) by Garrett Leigh:
Incoherent gushing by Lost in a Book

Synopsis:

Restaurant owner Tom Fearnes has loved his partner Cass for as long as he can remember, but their work often keeps them apart. When he meets a striking young man named Jake on the vibrant streets of Camden Town, their heady first encounter takes an unexpected turn.

Jake Thompson can hardly believe his luck when he wakes up in Tom’s bed. Tom is gorgeous, kind, and . . . taken. Tom’s explanation of his open relationship leaves Jake cold, but Tom is too tempting, and when hard times force Jake to accept Tom’s helping hand, he finds himself between two men who’ve lost their way.

Cass Pearson is a troubled soul. He loves Tom with all he has, but some days it feels like he hasn’t much to give. Jake seems like the perfect solution. Cass risks everything to push Jake and Tom together, but Jake resists, wary, until the darkness of Cass’s past comes to call. Then Jake finds himself the last man standing, and it’s time to dig deep and shine a light for the men he’s grown to love.

Synopsis:

Work, sleep, work, repeat. Nero’s lonely life suits him just fine until his best friend, Cass, asks him to take on a new apprentice—a beautiful young man who’s never set foot in a professional kitchen. Despite his irritation and his lifelong ability to shut the world out, Nero is mesmerised by the vibrant stray, especially when he learns what drove him to seek sanctuary on Nero’s battered old couch.

Lenny Mitchell is living under a cloud of fear. Pursued by a stalker, he has nowhere left to run until Nero offers him a port in a storm—a job at the hottest restaurant in Shepherd’s Bush. Kitchen life proves heady and addictive, and it’s not long before he finds himself falling hard and fast for the man who has taken him in.

Fast-forward a month and a neither man can imagine life without the other, but one thing stands in their way: a lifetime of horrors Nero can’t bring himself to share with Lenny. Or can he? For the first time ever, happiness is there for the taking, and Nero must learn to embrace it before fate steps in and rips it away.

Review Rambling thoughts: I don’t typically post a book that doesn’t have a semi-decent review and/or description. However, I binged on the Urban Soul series this weekend and still haven’t been able to get the characters out of my mind. So, here is just some quick thoughts on both books available in the series.

Misfits (Urban Soul #1)

5 Stars

Holy Hell, I have a serious love obsession for Jake, Tom, and Cass now. I didn’t want this to end but I couldn’t slow down to savor because… Well, Jake, Tom, and Cass are worth the insane lack of sleep and lack of productivity over the last 24 hours. I’m sad AF they don’t have a million more stories about them because I would read the shit out of them.

pic.jpg

Garrett Leigh just got herself a Stage-10 Clinger after this read. *shrug* I will be moving on have already moved to the next book in this series just to help with my book hangover.

*kicks self in the ass for waiting so long to read this divine book*

Strays (Urban Soul #2)

4 Stars

Well, those two books went down fast and smooth as fine wine. I really enjoyed this book but it didn’t take up as much of my heart Misfits did. Nero and Lenny had to climb mountains and I was hooked each step of the way. We are also treated to multiple appearances by Cass, Tom, and Jake. *Happy face* Definitely recommended and can’t wait for more in this series.

This is my 3rd Garrett Leigh book in a couple weeks… which means it all hurts so good and now I need to dive into a big huge ball of fluff.

Robbie (Confessions, #1)

Robbie (Confessions, #1) by Ella Frank: Review by Lost in a Book

Synopsis: 

Relationships are complex.
Love ever-changing.
And when it comes to rules of the heart,
they were made to be broken…

That’s what Robert Antonio Bianchi was telling himself, anyway.
Otherwise, he really had no excuse for what—or who—he’d done.

No excuse, except for his lonely heart, a pitcher of margaritas, four Bitter Bitches, and the apparent need to confess all his weaknesses to the two men he knew would bring him nothing but trouble.

But trouble was nothing new.

Just ask his crazy sisters or any of his friends, and they’d be the first to tell you:
If there was a bad decision to be made, Robbie always had a knack for making it.

And thus begins the story of the priest, the princess, and the prick.

Review

4.5 “holy shit that was hot” Stars

Buckle up Y’all, this is going to be another gushfest. It’ll also be a quick and dirty summary of all the things I had heart eyes for while reading (and only one that threw me off). I had a lot of love for PRIEST, Julien, and Robbie. *let the gushing begin*

love.gif

I LOVE that cover. Robbie is so freakin’ beautiful!!

I LOVE these broken characters. All of them. Priest hit all my yes, please- every day and twice on Sunday buttons but the other two men held their own as well. They actually communicated. The lack of drama and jealously was SO refreshing in this M/M/M read.

I LOVE the reason Priest and Julien added a third. They have so much love for each other, their chemistry was off the charts, and they were adult enough to communicate and understand that there were needs they couldn’t meet for the other.

I LOVE the equality for the trio and the relationships being built in each duo. Robbie provides something different for Julien than he does for Priest and vice versa. Again, all of this without an ounce of jealously. Each man has vulnerable moments and times to be the rock. There’s a hierarchy in their relationship that compliments and provides what each man needs.

I LOVE and had insane hot flashes with all the chemistry and UST. Julien and Priest themselves were hot AF- adding Robbie to the mix with all that chemistry becomes a health hazard.

Speaking of hot flashes and health hazards…

The actual sexy times…

clapping.gif

There’s a lot to LOVE. Oh my, they knew their way around a man. Not even just penetration but the anticipation, foreplay, the looks, light touches, the commands, the submission… sheeee-it. This is a stripped down D/s where the craving for submission alone is desired.

Warning: There is kinda sorta cliffhanger for this one. It isn’t dealing with the relationship of the MCs but has to do with the circumstances and backstories. You *could* stop after the first one but it was so good I’ve GOTTA spend some more time with them.

My only compliant when reading was the missing bits of information for each character. I felt like I should know them already or at least some of their backstory/history. Note: (I read Try when it came out 4 & 1/2 years ago and couldn’t remember anything. When I began Robbie, I didn’t know that it had a carry over character from that book or I would have revisited it as a refresher.) I definitely wanted more of Priest and Julien’s story while reading and I’m tickled pink that we’re getting more books about them in MAY!!!!!!! I’m gonna roll around in Priest SO HARD as soon as May gets here… Did I mention he is a ginger? *Growl* Julien’s book comes out in May but I’m going to assume well be treated to the multiple POV that I enjoyed for this one.

In the meantime, I’ll need to cool off in preparation for book 2… because health hazard.

Double Dose

Double Dose by Katie Allen: Review by Cupcake

Synopsis:

A double dose of happily-ever-after… 

Speech therapist Daphne’s neat, orderly life takes a turn for the dramatic when she’s kidnapped and spirited away to a hideout deep in the Colorado mountains. Her captors? Gorgeous men—all escaped from a secret laboratory designed to build perfect supersoldiers.

Trauma associated with his engineering left Benjy mute, and Ari thinks Daphne’s just the girl to help him recover. Held against her will, Daphne will be damned before she helps any of them—regardless of how electrifying she finds their touches.

But as Daphne’s hunger for Benjy and Ari grows, so does her empathy for the other soldiers hiding out at the lodge. With danger from her own past threatening to resurface and an overeager FBI agent sniffing around, she needs to free herself, her men and the others.

 2 Stars

Books like this make my head tilt. Just when I think I’ve gotten a handle on this suspending disbelief deal a book like this comes along and I’m all…

Those of you that have superior suspension of disbelief powers might could enjoy this, because it is very… cutesy. Instalove fans will likely adore this too. I do recognize that it’s supposed to be romantic rather than bad wrong, but it was just a little too weird for me and I was never able to alter my thinking from WTF to warm fuzzy.

Daphne is a speech pathologist and tells this story. Aristotle/Ari/A kidnaps her ostensibly to “fix” his best buddy Benjy’s muteness. Only that never happens! Apparently ole Benjy’s cup of care is empty which begs the question of why the hell his bestie doesn’t know this. Nevertheless, Benjy is WAY more interested in doing the shilly shally with her than talking, though his voice returns later under… dubious circumstances. *side eyes*

Allow me to set this stage, Ari drugs and kidnaps Daphne, takes her to a secluded compound lodge, when she wakes it’s to a room full of strangers gawking at her. She tries to escape. YAY! She’s discovered immediately and taken to Ari’s and Benjy’s loft where he puts her to bed. Like a toddler. She wakes to not just Ari but Benjy. In bed. With her. Her reaction is along the lines of, “this is cozy”. NAY!

I maybe would’ve been less floored by this reaction were it more believable gradual? But within days she’s thinking of quitting her job and staying on the compound at the lodge forever with her two dudes and the rest of these fugitives then learning how to use various weapons to aid them in fighting the baddies. Ummmm first, when did they become a committed throuple? Second…

The suspend disbelief doubled down with her being a virgin at 25 who during her deflowering was deep throating one and taking the sizable dick of the other simultaneously. Like a porn star. Approximately 2.5 seconds later she’s DPing like a champ.

I’m not sure if I was more disturbed by her meteoric rise to pornstardom or the fact that the guys essentially treat her like a fuck doll. They carry her around, arrange her like a body pillow, dress and undress her, smack her ass a whole lot and basically dictate how she spends her time. What’s more, she seems to like it! She giggles and swoons whilst walking around making the moony eyes at them.

WHAT.THE.FUCK? There’s making lemonade out of lemons and then there’s HAVE YOU LOST YOUR DAMN MIND?

The saddest part is… well, two things really, the first being I got Jedi mindtricked into believing this was MMF when in reality it’s MFM. I blame myself for this. The cover should’ve tipped me off. I clearly saw what I wanted to see, so technically I Jedi mindtricked myself which is just… sad. Second, the sex is lame. Oral and DP. Only on her though which I found unrealistic seeing as how these two dudes were sharing a bed before Dolly, I mean Daphne, came along and they never cross the swords?

I’ve not read the other books in this series and was able to catch up relatively quickly so it can be read as a standalone. The ongoing plot is a little bit sci-fi divided by cyberpunk multiplied by action/suspense with the characters from the previous books playing a significant role in the narrative. The way it concluded was much the same as the romance plot-a little bit hokey and a lot unbelievable. I didn’t hate it and can admit that there were some sweet moments but Daphne was too bizarre and that coupled with the speed of their “connection” was too much for me.

Recommend to fans of cutesy reads who can suspend disbelief like a BOSS!

Ace and Gavin haven’t had a threesome in far too long. When Ace meets the perfect guy to join them, he can’t think of a better way to kick off the holiday season.

Jonathan is charmed by the sexy couple, and he quickly realizes that what started as a fling has the potential to be a whole lot more.

Gavin feels their connection just as strongly, but even after weeks of the three of them hanging out, he’s afraid to suggest they turn their friends-with-benefits arrangement into a serious relationship.

The joy and shared experiences of the season have a way of making magic happen, if only all three men could find the courage to ask for what they want.

Three Under the Christmas Tree

2 Stars

Uhhhhmmmmmmm.

*cue porn music*

Ok, much better. Now the proper mood is set because this was straight up porny-land. I’m talking sex, sex, more sex, teeny bit of OTT drama, sex, sex, lack of communication, and didn’t I mention sex? The time it took the established couple to say “hello, nice to meet you,” to being at their house with the third, picturing a life together, and them being naked took less time than my one-click finger with an Amazon gift card.

fast.gif

Ace decides that the perfect gift for Gavin this holiday season is to add a third to their already open relationship. It’s been a while since they had a party of three and Ace found Jonathan on Grindr. As I mentioned before, the meet went very well and Jonathan was picturing domesticated bliss while fucking Gavin’s face, faster than the speed of light.

Jonathan has insecurities from being a third in the past. The couples he had been with before had always just been looking for a good time or a one-off. These insecurities creep up again as the trio try to navigate their wants and needs. Communication becomes a huge issue for all three. But who needs communication when you’re otherwise delightfully occupied? No one because everything was just perrrrrrrrrfect. Jonathan was perfect. The fit was perfect, perfect, perfect. Not really but the term was used enough to try and sell it. *sigh*

I started perking up at the mention of Gavin’s submissive nature, restraints, spanking, etc… But, it didn’t live up to the hype. Felt like vanilla ice cream trying to pass off as rocky road. #kinkfail *sad face*

I’ve read this author recently and really dug it. But this one fell short. Yes, there were moments of heat and a HEA. But, for the most part it was cheesy. A cheesy sex fest.

If I’m gonna be teased with rocky road, don’t give me plain vanilla. At least make it french vanilla. If I’m gonna read porn, I want it to be hot.

A Bolt of Blue

Reviewed for BMBR
3 Stars

This book was difficult to rate. I’ve gone back and forth and all that thinking made my brain hurt. There were parts that really worked for me and then parts that just didn’t. Parts that I wanted to slow down and parts I had to hold myself back from skipping. When I read a book that has a party of three, I always look to see if they’re all treated as equals and that their love/connection works in pairs as well as the trio. It didn’t IMO and I hope I’m able to adequately explain what didn’t work for me.

Mitch and Ian have been best friends for most of their life. They’ve always had a platonic relationship but Ian has been completely in love with Mitch for years. They have a very close relationship that borders on more than friends but Mitch has been too blind to notice and Ian has been too reluctant to tell Mitch how he feels. They are both busy with school, Ian working as a CNA and Mitch playing college baseball. Finally, Ian can’t take it any more and HAS to tell Mitch how he feels. They meet up at a bar and Ian is totally terrified but ready to spill… that is, until Mitch’s secret, Greek god, bartender boyfriend comes up to their table and gives Mitch a kiss.

shit.gif

Mitch and Dusty met at Angel’s bar, where Dusty is a bartender. What was supposed to be a one night stand turned out to be a relationship that Mitch kept under wraps. By time Ian finds out about the relationship, they have been together almost 7 weeks and are in love. It’s a very tough pill for Ian to swallow but he does for the sake of Mitch’s happiness. However, when Mitch and Ian hang out, there are these “moments” that are opening Mitch’s eyes to his feelings for Ian even though he still loves Dusty.

Ian and Dusty have also been spending time together while Mitch is off taking care of his sister’s issues or playing baseball. It’s during these times with Ian and Dusty that they start to develop feelings for each other until one drunken night, they kiss. This sets off a domino effect of issues for all of them to work through. While they do get their HEA, Mitch has to work through the “betrayal” and all the feelings between Ian and Dusty and Mitch’s with both men.

I had a hard time with Mitch. He grated on me with his overly dramatic personality, judgy statements, and everything surrounding his sister, April. I didn’t understand the need for April’s storyline outside of creating potential drama for Dusty and Mitch which detracted from the story IMO. The introduction of April and her issues wasn’t smooth and as it was first happening, my thoughts were along the lines of, “Oh gosh, here we go.” I also didn’t believe the relationship between Mitch and Dusty. Outside of sex, they didn’t have depth. Don’t get me wrong, sex is always a plus but, I needed more and they didn’t have it. They never shared anything meaningful but when Ian came along, Dusty was spilling his soul to him. That didn’t work because Mitch and Dusty were supposedly in love and they had found the one but couldn’t share anything beyond orgasms and food.

Now, Ian and Dusty is where it’s at.

oh yeah.gif

They worked. They had a great connection and the depth in their relationship was so evident that it highlighted the shortfalls with Mitch. They had awesome chemistry and my kindle started smoking just from their kisses. I wouldn’t have complained if this was a M/M starring them. They were a team whether it was in the kitchen cooking, cuddling on the couch, or getting it on. I was a huge fan of them.

Mitch and Ian never really found their stride. They didn’t seem to be equals in the trio even though they were life long friends. It remained awkward and they never quite got to the point together to even come close to how Ian was with Dusty.

The POVs changing with each chapter was a little hard to get into at the beginning. I’m sure by now you can all guess that I would have preferred Mitch’s POV to disappear. *shrug* Another addition to the story that had me rolling my eyes and shaking my head was Trevor. He was a guy that Ian went out with twice to try and get over Mitch. There was enough going on with the three MCs coming together, the implications of said relationship on family/friends, and the bar drama to make the book work. Trevor was as pointless to my reading enjoyment as the April storyline and yet both brought so much drama.

There should be a trigger warning for mentions of sexual assault. The facts in the story are contradictory from the actual event to when it was mentioned at the end. However, it’s worth noting. There is also cheating by way of kissing prior to the three of them getting together.

This was a decent read. I don’t expect each MC to share the exact same likes, desires, bond and relationship with both the other men but I do want them to all feel equal and share some depth. While it didn’t fully work for me, I could see this being an okay starting point for those new to menage books.

Baal’s Heart Series

5 + a million Stars

*Peeks out from Pirate Land*

Ahoy Matey!! I’ve been in Pirate Land for the week tearing through this Baal’s Heart series. I just finished the special holiday novella and now I’m left empty and giddy at the same time. The book hangover that’s already creeping up is going to be wicked. I haven’t felt like this about a series since KJ Charles and Joanna Chambers peddled their historical crack book series. I can’t even write a real review because I just want to gush over the epicness of this series.

Some of you may be turned off because M/M/M isn’t your thing. Some may be turned off because of the gruesome, dark nature that is present throughout. But, this was fucking amazing. The whole shebang. All 3 full length books and the holiday novella rocked my word. It had everything I look for in books and then some added on top.

Badass men
Suspense
Romance
Adventure
Top notch world building
Great secondary characters
Chemistry
Kink
Character growth
Etc…
Etc…
Etc…

I’ve said this before, when reading a menage book, I want the trio to work well AND them to work well in pairs. The series shows the development of their relationship as doubles and then a trio. Each man had his time to be vulnerable, jealous, be the glue that holds everything together, to submit, and to dominate. It was beautiful to “see” what each man brought to the table. Let’s be real, it was hot. I’m talking scorching sex. Their chemistry was practically another main character. I loved ALL three men. I don’t have a favorite. Sorry, I couldn’t keep up that lie. TOM. TOM IS MY FAVORITE. I can’t even explain the swoonworthy-badassery that is Tom.

Warning: This series isn’t for squeamish or those that are faint-hearted. It’s pirates. There is violence and piratey things going on. Book two is probably the darkest but all three books have dark themes and are laden with potential trigger warnings like death, rape, torture, etc…

I know this review is all incoherent ramblings… I apologize. That’s what happens when a hangover sets in. Nothing makes sense and you just wanna curl up in bed and take a hit of whatever got you hungover to begin with. So, I’m just gonna roll around in pages of this book over and over again until my hangover is gone. *sigh* Damn you Bey Deckard! I’m broken and the only thing that will fix me is more. *waits not so patiently*
