Jet Reviews: Dusk by TA Creech

Title: Dusk

Author:  T.A Creech

Publisher:  JMS Books

Pages: 120

Characters: John and Jason

POV: expanded 3rd person (mentioned more in the review)

Sub-Genre: Sci-fi

Kisses: 2.75

Blurb:

When contact is lost with Mission Control, Commander John Dennington isn’t overly concerned. Such hiccups in communication are common. The first inkling of the larger problem occurs when he sees the very shape of the world change before his eyes.

John must ease his crew into a new mission and keep the Station together by any means necessary. The crew jeopardizes their chances by fighting his orders, but Jason Weiss, his mission specialist and the light of his life, makes John’s situation more bearable.

The smallest malfunction to Station or crew would spell the end for six astronauts trapped high above a ruined Earth. It’s their mission to carry on. Random chance of the universe hasn’t operated in their favor so far, but John is determined to see them all safely home.

Review:

Once catastrophe strikes at home, John, Jason, and the rest of the crew aboard a Space Station orbiting the Earth are powerless to do anything but watch. But as the dust clears, they come up with a plan, but they’ve got to survive long enough to execute it.

Dusk started strong, pushing all the right buttons for me. About half the cast members are a people of color, it’s science fiction and I assumed, at first, a romance. But things quickly lost their luster.

There are a lot of things Dusk does very well, building this world and upping the initial tension of the situation John and his crew face. However, there are things that stick out that made my excitement for this book dwindle to the point that it was hard to finish. Character descriptions are tropey, which I always expect, to an extent and isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but when it comes to describing the ethnicities of some of the characters, they’re racially ignorant at best and downright offensive at worst. Some of the issues could have been fixed with a bit of research beforehand (regarding some ideas about darker skinned people, surrounding John) and others are a bigger problem that maybe Creech might not have been aware of (descriptions of the Japanese and Native American characters come immediately to mind). On top of which, some of these descriptions are inconsistent which created a problem for me in imagining what the characters look like aside from maybe John and Jason, and there are issues there as well. The one that bothered me most was how John refers to Jason as the “pinnacle of male perfection” with emphasis on all his pale skinned, blonde haired, green eyed glory. As a nonwhite person the paleness of my white friends isn’t something I tend to focus on. Granted, it could be seen as John just viewing Jason through the rosy lens of their relationship, but with everything else I mentioned, it feels like another step in the wrong direction. There are many ways this could have been illustrated and I wish one of those had been chosen.

While the thorough descriptions were welcome in the beginning, shaping the world, they later feel like too much when I wanted more movement. They felt less like they were fleshing things out rather than stalling. The book is very slow paced, though it picks up in the last few chapters, I had trouble reading that long. There just isn’t a lot that happens after the initial conflict. Maybe if there had been some foreshadowing of what was to come, but instead if focused more on John and Jason in a way that wasn’t too interesting to me.

Another point of contention I had while reading was the way Creech handled the all male cast. Taking out of the equation that it seems a little odd that the only people who could be on the station for this job were six men (I know it’s for the purpose of staying in the m/m genre and having other couples for different books, hence, why I’m ignoring it) it just got confusing. There’s a paragraph where 3 different characters are mentioned, first by name, but are then reduced to he and his and it gets hard to tell which he is being mentioned. This happens several times throughout the book and sometimes requires another read to tell who is who, or you could just skip over it which is where I ended up in the end. This is made worse by the “expanded third person” for lack of another name for it. It’s not quite omniscient, as it doesn’t go into the heads of all characters involved, only Jason and John. This switches often without warning and it’s unclear when it switched or who is talking.

John and Jason have an established relationship, so there’s no falling in love vibes here, but more that they’re trying to make it work given the circumstances. I dig that. Not every book has to have the growing pains of a fledgling relationship. There are few steamy scenes in this, and while the first one is pretty solid, the second one had me scratching my head, trying to figure out exactly what was going on. It takes place in zero gravity so that certainly didn’t help things. But I appreciate Creech making an attempt.

Overall, this book was a mixed bag for me. I liked most of the base story, but the things I mentioned, especially the weird elements regarding race and backgrounds, kept me from getting more into it and rating it higher. This feels very much like an introductory book, but I needed more of a hook to want to continue this story.

(Please note: I’m not calling Creech a racist. I do not know this author and have no opinions on them whatsoever. That doesn’t change how the book reads, however.)

Lydia Reviews: The Runaway and the Enforcer by Edward Kendrick

TITLE:  The Runaway and the Enforcer

Author: Edward Kendrick

Publisher: JMS Books

Pages: 135

Characters: Beau and Rick

POV: 3rd POV

Sub-Genre: Mystery

Kisses: 4.5

Blurb:

Beau, thirty-five, is a gangland enforcer who has gone into hiding rather than following the orders of his boss, Mercer, to harm a rival’s kid. Now, all Beau wants to do is eliminate Mercer before getting out of town.

When Rick, an eighteen-year-old denizen of the streets, witnesses Beau killing one of Mercer’s men who has found him, Beau takes Rick under his wing instead of killing him, as well. He offers Rick a place to stay while he figures out how to put his plan to take Mercer out into action — without ending up dead himself.

Befriending Rick is an act Beau may come to regret. Rick convinces Beau to take him along when he leaves town — thus working his way into Beau’s dangerous life on the run — and perhaps, into his heart, if Beau can come to grips with the fact that Rick is half his age.

Review:

The Runaway and The Enforcer is a recent release by author Edward Kendrick.  This is a May/December romance that edges on the gritty side.  Beau is an enforcer for the mob but he finds himself on the wrong side of the family when he refuses to follow through on his boss’s orders.  Now that he has a hit on his head, Beau needs to stay in the shadows.  Before he heads out of town he has one more thing to do, take care of his boss.

Rick is in his late teens and finds himself on the streets.  He does what he has to to stay alive, so when the guy he sees killing someone offers him a place to stay he takes it.  Staying together is beneficial for both of them but Rick is a little worried, even if he finds it interesting that someone in Beau’s line of work has a moral compass.  Soon the two find themselves working together in order to finish things with Mercer but things go a little crazy and the two soon hit the road.

Mr. Kendrick’s, The Runaway and The Enforcer, is an action packed story that will keep the readers attention from the start.  While this story may sound familiar it is very well done and sure to become a fan favorite.  I loved the characters.  Whether on their own or together they pulled me into their world.  I loved watching them interact and grow as a couple once Beau overcame his issues with their age difference.  Then there is the action part of this story.  The author really makes this part come alive.  From Beau and Rick’s first meeting, to Mercer being taken down, and later to the death of Whalen the author keeps things hopping.  The action in this story will have you turning the pages to see how things will turn out.  The little twists and turns were great and one really surprised me.  I loved how the author wraps things up at the end especially since it had me a little worried.

The Runaway and The Enforcer is a great new addition by this author.  Fans will love it, while those who have not yet tried anything be Edward Kendrick should really give it a try.

Jet Reviews: A Demon for Midwinter by K.L. Noone

Title: A Demon for Midwinter

Author:  K.L. Noone

Publisher: JMS Books

Pages: 285

Characters: Kris, Justin

POV: 3rd

Sub-Genre: Contemporary, paranormal

Kisses: 2.5

Blurb:

Kris Starr used to be famous. Rock and roll. Sold-out shows. Literal magic. Empathic talents and screaming fans.

But he has a problem or two. He’s having a hard time writing new music. It’s Midwinter, which means he’s surrounded by depressing holiday cheer. And he’s in love with Justin, his manager, who has a talent for rescuing almost- or once-famous bands … and who’s hiding secrets of his own.

Justin Moore, on the other hand, is very good at keeping those secrets — he’s had to be for years. One secret involves a demonic inheritance that would make him a target of suspicion. Another involves his past.

And the third involves Justin’s feelings for Kris Starr, rock and roll icon and now his client … and a powerful empath of his own.

Review:

A Demon for Midwinter takes place in a world where magic exists, but instead of being a skill you can learn or hone, people are born with varying degrees of natural ability. Kris Starr is an aging rock star with such an ability and it’s so strong he’s made a career off of it. But that was more than a decade ago. In present day, he’s barely clinging to relevancy and giving his manager, Justin Moore, a hard time. But that all changes when events set Justin’s world on its head, putting Kris in a position of responsibility for the first time in his adult life.

It’s worth noting that a big plot point of this book revolves around domestic violence and you are given a description of it and see the after effects In case that is something that concerns you. That aside, I found it difficult to get into A Demon for Midwinter due to the style it’s written in. Noone is very fond of simile and metaphor, but the level of usage often hurts the story more than it helps. Instead of creating a more vivid picture, they impeded the flow of the story, giving it a jagged, ungainly feel. I spent a good chunk of time wondering what was being said in certain passages, what the use of gemstones or light or cinnamon (of which this text is lush with) was helping express in this part or that. This happened so often that after awhile I started skipping over the more length descriptions to move the story along, which was no easy task. But there is some very pretty imagery; they just need patience to uncover them, like diamonds.

The dialogue also suffered in a similar way, often rambling and lacking focus and I was unsure of what I was supposed to get from these exchanges. In some places, I think I understand what the author was going for—to make the text read exactly how it would be heard, as if spoken. But what was meant to come across as, for example, confused befuddlement was only aggravating when translated onto the page. When that doesn’t happen, the dialogue is often very organic and natural. I wish there was more of it.

If all of the above issues happened more sparingly, like at a moment of significance or something worth remembering, they would have been less problematic for me. As it stands, they happen so frequently that they bleed together and make for a challenging read.

The plot was fairly straightforward and focused in scope, and I enjoyed it, but there were a number of things that kept me from getting into it as much as I would have liked. One hurdle was the anthropomorphizing of objects. The first time it happened, when a rock glares at someone after being kicked, I wasn’t sure if it was hyperbole. But then it kept happening with shuddering dumpsters and sympathetic furniture and after much confusion I realized that yes, these random objects are alive and doing these things and no one really seems to notice enough for it to explicitly be pointed out. But I wasn’t sure what it was offering to the story.

There was a lot in this book that wasn’t for me, and I feel I should touch on a few points briefly in case someone else falls into the same camp so they aren’t blindsided by it:

While May-December romances aren’t my thing, I was able to suspend my personal preference to get through the book, but not without the occasional speedbump. There are a number of times when Kris, the elder of the two, points out their differences in age in an odd way. Not so much in a way that showed him having reservations about pursuing a romance with someone 15 years his junior, but as it shows him seeing Justin as even younger than he is. Several times he talks about Justin in a way that portrays him as physically appears more childlike. And he still goes after him. But I did appreciate that Kris did have a moment of pause, no matter how briefly it lasted. That added a layer of realism, and while this is largely based in fantasy, I felt it was a nice touch.

Characters’ sexual history. I’m an adult, I know that most people do not exist in a vacuum, waiting for their chosen person, but the way this is done, put me off. Most of the heat in the book (of which there is very little) relied on hearing about Justin’s past exploits. Kris’ are brought up, but only to show him as he is: on the wrong side of 40 and looking back on his life with knowledge he wished he’d had then. With Justin, it’s more just a quantitative list and while I can see, in a certain light, that it’s meant to show a part of his character, I don’t agree with how it’s done. As this book focuses on Kris and Justin’s relationship, I wanted more heat between them, and not just from Kris’ POV. It gets steamy at the end with several scenes linked together, but I feel it would have been more enjoyable spread out, or, at the least, more natural if you could see through actions that they were heading this way rather than just being told it’s on the way(in so many words at one point.) This might not bother the average reader, but I felt it should be mentioned as it happens repeatedly.

One last thing I took issue with, and I’m sure I might be alone in this, but is worth mentioning because it made me very uncomfortable was how the underage members of Justin’s family seemed to be privy to details of his sex life. They knew a lot, teasing him about sex toys and clothes they knew had been destroyed during some kinky activity. A few times when they appeared I had to take a break. There’s a deus ex machina for why they have this knowledge, but that doesn’t make it feel less uncomfortable.

There were things I did enjoy, like the introduction to Justin’s family which is very tight knit and welcoming. The idea of a blended family that actually gets along was refreshing.

All that said, regardless of my opinions and person issues with the book, if you’re interested in this, if the blurb speaks to you, then pick it up and give it a try. However, I strongly suggest you read a sample to see how you feel about the writing style first as that was a huge hurdle for me.

Review: 

When I asked to review this book, I didn’t realize how short it was going to be. As a general rule, I try to avoid short stories because of lack of character development and the hasty storyline isn’t my cuppa at all. What sucks is this book had great potential to be a good story. I’ve read this author’s work before and she can write a good book. Maybe for those whom like a short stories more than I, will enjoy this quick read more than I did.

I felt cheated because I didn’t get to know the characters. The story was rushed and because of it, there isn’t time to know that much about them and what truly makes them tick. I did think the relationship that started to develop between them had great potential and it’s because of it that I gave this short story more than 2 Kisses.

I’m sorry. This wasn’t for me. I do recommend Shawn Lane’s longer books. She is a good writer and her HIS series is a favorite of mine.

TITLE: Lost in Time

Publisher: JMS Books

Pages: 162

Characters: Lew/Alec

POV: 3rd

Sub-Genre: historical fantasy

Kisses: 5

Blurb:

Lew Rogers’s life is pleasantly boring until his friend Mira messes with magic she doesn’t understand. While searching for her, he’s pulled back in time to 1919 by a catastrophic magical accident. As he tries to navigate a strange time and find his friend in the smoky music clubs of Soho, the last thing he needs is Detective Alec Carter suspecting him of murder.

London in 1919 is cold, wet, and tired from four years of war. Alec is back in the Metropolitan Police after slogging out his army service on the Western Front. Falling for a suspect in a gruesome murder case is not on his agenda, however attractive he finds the other man.

Both men are floundering and out of their depth, struggling to come to terms with feelings they didn’t ask for and didn’t expect. Both have secrets that could get them arrested or killed. In the middle of a murder investigation that involves wild magic, mysterious creatures, and illegal sexual desire, who is safe to trust?

Review:

I love time travel stories, particularly those that involve travel to the past.  Add in the fact that post WWI is one of my favorite time periods to read about, and I knew I needed to read this book.

The first thing that struck me when I started reading was the world building.  The time period is meticulously researched and felt very real.  I really liked the details, like Lew’s accent being not quite right, something that not everyone would think of, but makes perfect sense with the way language changes over time—no pun intended.  The author’s depiction of the setting is very much post war, with the staff shortages after losing men at the front.  Although it would have been interesting reading about Lew’s couple of years fitting into life in the 1920s, I was happy to have it just referred to as it’s not the focus of the story.

I also loved the fantasy aspect of the story with the Workers who possess some psychic ability in being able to smooth and block holes in the The Border, which is a kind of otherworld.

The two main characters come from completely different backgrounds and time periods. I liked the way in which Alec is suspicious of Lew, and their friendship takes a while to grow, rather than them acting on their attraction immediately.  I thought the author handled that attraction very well by portraying it subtly, which again is what I’d expect from something set in that time period.  Alec’s personal history is also very much on par for the time period as a gay man trying to pretend he’s not while trying to live up to expectations of the society, and I really felt for him.

Alec’s reaction after confronting Lew and getting a glimpse of The Border was very realistic. If he had just accepted all of it in his stride I would have been disappointed.

I also liked the contrast between Lew’s two jobs as a police photographer and taking photos for a newspaper.  The author describes the differences between the precision needed for one, and the artistic drama of the other nicely, and the fact Lew has had to learn to use film rather than taking photos digitally as someone from 2016 would be used to.

The supporting characters are well rounded too, and I liked the fact there were consequences regarding going up against their foe.  The Workers have a rich history—I suspect the glimpses of it we see in this story are just the tip of the iceberg. I’m looking forward to reading more about them. I was very pleased to read the beginning of the next book at the end of this one and to learn there is going to be a series. I’m now hanging out for future books and loved the set up at the end of this one.

I’d recommend Lost in Time to readers who like a good historical fantasy with a dash of time travel, realistic characters, and a story that keeps you reading
