I don’t have enough praise for this AMAZING BOOK.  I can not collect my thoughts.

party birthday excited yeah happy birthday Reactions excited awesome great emotions

I started this book thinking that it is a menage’ book. IT WASN’T. But holy shit what a ride. This book caught my attention as soon as it came out. It drew my attention both the blurb and the book cover. So I said there must be something interesting. OMG

In the book, the story is told on three levels. The childhood to adolescence, of protagonists, present, and almost a year before today. And all these plans which are mixed, make the reader’s mind goes crazy. MINDFUCK. But I think this is precisely the charm of the book. I think if it was narrated in a different order, it certainly did not have the same charm.


Killian and Kael Shepard are two brothers who live across the street from the DeSoto sisters,  Maverick and Jillian. Kilian is the big brother and Jillian the big sister. Both Kilian and Kael love Maverick since they were children. But Maverick has always loved Kilian, Kael became just her best friend, only in the friend zone.

 Lj:   *:


Although Kilian loved Maverick since he was a child, he always kept away from her. Or she is was still child, then she is too young and then when they started to keep the relationship secret and scheming their marriage he told her that he is not good enough for her and he wants to make a name for himself on his own and not using her father and her father’s name and power. So he went away for a while. So when he returns back, he returns engaged. But not engaged to Maverick but to her sister, Jillian. And if that was not enough it does not even offer an explanation to Maverick. I hated Killian throughout the entire book. I thought that whatever his reason was for him to make this gesture and take this decision, it still does not have an excuse.

Hasta tu sombra conoce mis más íntimos secretos y las pasiones guardadas en mi ser, las cuales seducen tus bajas pasiones, así despertando la fiera que hay en ti, la que besa mi alma y sacia mis deseos. ©Anadian Siyani:    :


Obviously, this was the perfect chance for Kael. Although he knew that Killian and Maverick love each other, he risked. He risked his heart, his future, his happiness, in one word his entire life. Because Maverick was his entire life, and he can love for both of them. He knew that deep in her heart Maverick loves him too, though not with the same intensity and in the same way. For Now.

 :    :


Maverick aka Small Fry aka Swan, as she says herself is a masochist because of feelings and thoughts she has. In revenge, she marries Kael, her best friend, even if she loves Killian with all her heart.

But when the whole truth will come out …all the lies, deception, sacrifices, scandal and revenge, what will Maverick do? Who will she choose? What reason so powerful had Killian that he had to sacrifice his own happiness? Will Kael succeed to make Maverick love him as much or even more as Killian? Will Maverick fall in love with her husband?

Killian is tough just as I like the heroes. But Kael is so sweet and honest  … For me is THE PERFECT MAN. He risked everything. And most importantly, he always put Maverick in the first place. Maverick has been all his life, all his universe, and he fought for her. I was a little disappointed to find out that he was part of the secrets and had some things to hide, but I understood in the end. Maverick … GOD how many fights and internal struggles were in her heart.I liked that she fought, struggled, she gave prove of ambition and power and in the end, she chose what was best for her and for her heart. I liked that he was honest.

This book it is about a beautiful love story. AMAZING LOVE STORY.

And love scenes were HOTI simply felt the desire and the passion.

A beautiful and amazing love story!

I really liked this but I didn’t love it, not in epic proportions as most of the others anyway.

Here are my thumbs up points:
The characterisation of both MCs.
The mystery which came across very strong.
Action wise it had a steady pace with no boring times.
Chemistry was there, solid.

What held back my 5*? … Romance vs. Relationship.


When the story started and we met Zane.


We were led to believe that Zane was perfection whereas Ty, on the other hand, was a mess.


Very first wrong impressions I must say. I guess we were tricked.As the story progresses and Zane’s layers start to peel off we realize that Zane is not perfect at all.

 


Hands down, Zane was the most damaged. He lost his wife, a partner at work and he also had addictions to deal with.I didn’t like that every time Zane showed a weakness Ty took a step back. It happened when he mentioned his wife, the drinks, and the drugs.

I also wanted to see them going crazy in lust with each other


But they seemed very restrained both emotionally and physically. There were times when I was left disappointed in regarding this coldness, like when they were apart for 4 months. When they met again, they went to Ty’s place, had a shower, they ate some pizza, talked and went to bed, to sleep, folks.


Now, excuse me, moi, but why they didn’t jump each other bones is beyond my understanding.Think:🤔 you don’t see your man for 4 months.What are you going to do when you meet hmm?? Well, I have no idea what you would do, but I know what I would. Winking Emoticon
Ok, he wasn’t HIS man. Still, it frustrated me.

 


Oh! Another thing that I liked A LOT was that the guys didn’t seem to grab where they stood emotionally. AND that made the story believable. I would have hated if it would have turned in instalove. They hated each other at first and in a matter of days, they started to feel protective of each other. They were very confused about these feelings. I think this was played very well by the author with their inner monologs.

 


Overall it was a really great read and I am very curious to see what book #2 will bring romance wise.Sorry, I went a bit OTT with the pics but how could I not get excited about.
Ty & Zane? …So damn hot!
A pity that I could not show them in full, a serial flagger could be around.

Leo Loves Aries (Signs of Love, #1) by Anyta Sunday

*****5 Stars*****

Oh my, what a treat this book was to read.

 I had this little gem sitting on my kindle for quite awhile, I wish I would have read it sooner.I wasn’t sure what I was going to find when I started this book, it was a situation where I briefly skimmed the summary and purchased the book, but didn’t really know much about the story.  I would like to think I am an open-minded person, I think we are helped along on our path in life by all different kinds of guides, in this story that guide is one’s astrological sign.


Theo Wallace and his twin sister Leone are the Leo’s in this story, who we find recovering from heartbreak at the start of our tale.  It is a sad story, Theo had been in a 2 year relationship with Samantha and Leone and  Derek had been together for 3 years, both of these serious and committed relationships.  Somewhere bit by bit over all the weeknights, weekends, and holidays Theo and Leone had them over, Sam and Derek fell in love with each other.


The twins were blindsided by their confession, even after all of the tearful apologies and declarations that this wasn’t planned, Sam and Derek did not love them anymore.  A year later, Theo felt he had moved on until in the mail came a gold-edged card to save the date.  It would be so much easier if he could just hate them, but this was churning up all the old feelings, he knew he needed to let this go and truly move on.

In that same mailbox came another letter addressed to the two of them, this one a much happier offering from their mother, a new horoscope for the new year.


Sooner or later a Leo will get what they want. It is just a matter of time.:

“It’s a new year, Leo.  Resolve to make big changes in your life and use your pride and stubbornness to see them through.  A new person will enter your life early in the year; look past any moments of frustration they might bring and laugh, Leo-this could be the start of a thriving friendship. …The heart and head may not be in sync in the first half of this year, Leo, and there’s potential to overlook the obvious.  Listen hard to your inner voice and if confused, talk it through with a loved one.  Fear, not rejection and heartbreak, Leo.  Hold your head up high, be your glowing, fiery self, and the right people will gravitate to you; maybe even a soul mate among them. “


 

Having decided to rent out their third room to help with the finances, after a few unsuccessful interviews with possible tenants, Theo happens across Mr. Jamie Cooper, his T.A. from last year, who Theo is trying to convince to tutor him through a class he is struggling with. Jamie is looking for a new place to rent, Theo of course, finds this to be a perfect opportunity for both of them and will do anything he can to sway Jamie into helping him out.

A fast and strong friendship develops here, it turns out both of these men have some scars on their hearts. They love to antagonize and challenge each other.  I am not known to be the most patient of people and have never been a fan of the slow burn, especially where there are a lot of misunderstandings and unsaid thoughts that could really clear up so much in the story.  (I think this may stem from my personal inability to keep any of my thoughts to myself ;)) That being said, when the relationship is filled with fantastic sarcastic humor and touching heartfelt, emotion, I am completely fine with a slow burn!

~Review~ Leo Loves Aries by Anyta Sunday | ~Dirty Books Obsession~:

 


Theo is so clueless to what is happening, it is somewhat frustrating but it is almost always comical. Their friendship comes to mean so much to both of them, I think I enjoyed watching their jealousy grow and seeing Theo work out what he was really feeling almost as much as I enjoyed them finally move into the next stages of their relationship.

I love a GFY story, I am a total sucker for one that is done right…but when you throw in some fantastic hot sexy times….oh my, that is my sweet spot!

I highly recommend this book!
