A Littlebit of Joy (Renovating Love)

A Littlebit of Joy (Renovating Love)A Littlebit of Joy by Mathew Ortiz

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Guy sees hot, straight coworker and falls in lust. Coworker seems kind of interested. BUT HE’S STRAIGHT! Angst. Sex. More angst. Reconciliation. Hearts and flowers.

Typos. Repetition. Sentences thrown in to fix plot holes. A sudden announcement that Straight Guy “fooled around” with guys in high school and college but never thought another thing of it.

Tied Up in Knots (Marshals Book 3)

Tied Up in Knots (Marshals Book 3)Tied Up in Knots by Mary Calmes

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I spent the last couple days rereading Marshals 1 and 2, so I could remember exactly what was going on in the story.

Miro and Ian are still very much in love, but there’s tension between them because Ian can be called away in the reserves at any time. Add in past events from both their lives and freaking Hartley, who will not stay locked up, and the tension rackets up even more.

But it’s a good ending.

*******SPOILER ********

Chickie is fine.

David, Renewed

David, RenewedDavid, Renewed by Diana Copland

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

David walks in on his ex and another guy, leaves, and impulsively buys a house. The house, though beautiful, needs fixing. Enter hot handyman Jackson and the beginning of a great relationship.

I like that Jackson subcontracts things like plumbing and painting to his own friends, who are also gay. And I hope the next book sees the friends working together in their own larger, group business.

And I really have to look and see if there’s a gay yellow pages or something.

I.N.E.T. (International Narcotics Enforcement & Tracking, #1)

I.N.E.T. (International Narcotics Enforcement & Tracking, #1)I.N.E.T. by Brenda Cothern

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This started off well, but it crashed at the end. It’s like the author didn’t know how to finish the book, so she just kind of stopped.

There was a lot left unexplained about the characters; in fact, Knight and Slade were pretty superficial caricatures — one a joker with anger-management issues and the other the super-strong, silent type.

No I.N.E.T. 2 for me. 😦
