Nachos & Hash (Mary’s Boys #1) by Brandon Witt

****4 Stars****

This is the first book I’ve read by this Author and I really enjoyed it.

Cody is 21, has recently moved to Denver and is now working at Hamburger Mary’s, a gay-friendly restaurant/bar.He’s left behind his life living in a trailer park in Kansas with parents he didn’t have much of a life with.He’s in a pretty good place in his life, a job he loves and working with some great people…..he finally feels part of a family.


Darwin is 24, has nearly everything he wants in life, a good job, a nice home the only thing missing is someone to share it with.He’s tired of dating men from dating sites and wants a relationship.He’s on a date one night with a man he’s not interested in when he meets Cody.He feels a connection straight away with the cute server.

  


Cody can’t believe someone like Darwin would be interested in him and puts their first encounter down to a hookup but Darwin has other ideas.
These two men were just so cute together….I mean really adorable.But Cody is very insecure and when his past life collides with his present life things take quite a dark turn.


For a novella, the characters are extremely well developed and engaging.From the two main characters to the staff at Mary’s, girlfriends(who are just fabulous).All of this makes this a really enjoyable, sexy read.

A recommended read.This is set to be a great series and I can’t wait for the sexy Bartender’s story next…

An ARC was provided to me by the Author in exchange for an honest review.

I love shifter books, but I don’t read a lot of mpreg.

This is because most of the ones I did read (or started), were a big disappointment to me.  This book, however, I really enjoyed. The world-building and character development were very nicely done. I also really liked this author writing style. And even though I like my smut, this book wasn’t one big sex fest, it had content and a great storyline. It did have knotting , though….just so you know.

Luca is the Alpha-heir and he has reached the age (25) to choose his Omega.

During the Choosing ceremony, he has to choose one of the Omega’s that are presented, to mate with. This will give him Alpha status and his powers. Problem is, that none of the Omega’s presented interest him. Like all werewolves, Luca is bi-sexual, but he prefers men. There are only two male Omega’s and they will probably be picked by the other Alpha. Doesn’t really matter anyway, because even the male Omega’s don’t hold his attention.

Luca knows he has to pick one because if he doesn’t he won’t reach his Alpha status and he won’t be able to make the changes he desperately wants to make. Everything changes, though, when he catches the eyes of a human servant, who is about to be beaten. His whole world stops and he has only one thing on his mind…

I really loved Luca and Kit together…

Though I have to say, that Luca made some dumbass mistakes. I forgave him (after he groveled), because well….It’s not every day that you become an Alpha King. Thankfully we also have Kit and he was really an amazing character. He was so strong and so loving.


The mpreg part was done very nicely, it was weird…but in a good way. 😛


A lot of things happen in this story and I could say so much more…but I won’t. I think that if you enjoy a good shifter story and you don’t mind the mpreg, then you should just give it a go yourself. I myself would love another book about Sam and Asher, who were awesome side characters in this book !!

Also a big”thank you” to Susan, who always recs the best books to me.

The Last Thing He Needs, by J.H. Knight

****4 Stars****


I was a bit nervous about reading this book because the reviews were so mixed. But my good friend Karlijn said she really liked it and advised me to just give it a go, and since I always listen to my friends…that’s what I did. I’m really glad I listened because I loved it!

Tommy O’Shea is 22 years old and his life is so freaking hard. His father and step-mom are selfish druggies/addicts, who don’t give a shit about their kids. They disappear for long periods of time and when they do come back, they turn everything to shit.

So basically Tommy is raising his 7 siblings, who range from 0 to 17 old, by himself. He is trying his hardest to take care of his family and to provide for their needs so the kids won’t end up in the foster care system. The last time that happened was a disaster and Tommy has promised them he won’t let it happen again. He works his ass off trying to make ends meet, but it isn’t easy, even when the other kids try to help out where they can. Every day is a struggle.

Then there is Bobby. Bobby is a rookie cop who has been to the O’Shea house many times on disturbance calls. They know each other from high school, though they weren’t friends back then. Bobby is looking to change this however and he comes over to the house more and more. Slowly they start building a friendship, which eventually leads to so much more.

But Tommy doesn’t let people in very easily. He has some trust issues and he thinks of himself as less worthy. Thankfully, Bobby is not one to just give up and he has no problems fighting for Tommy and the kids.

Tommy and Bobby’s relationship was not an easy one, but it was a beautiful one. These two men were really amazing together.Afbeeldingsresultaat voor gay men kissing + gif


I also want to give some extra credit to  Bobby’s mom. She was a wonderful character !!

“The bitch,” Bobby said sarcastically. “The nerve of the woman. Going in and bringing cake—there was cake, right?” When Tommy nodded, Bobby went on. “That is some messed-up devil-woman shit. Thinking she can slide in under your radar like that! That’s right out of Grimm’s Fairy Tales. Maybe she’ll try to cook them next!”
