Book Reports (85-88)...

For those of you who happened to Google your title and ended up here, please know that one star is not a bad thing in Robin's world -- just the fact that I picked up your book and started it means that somewhere it's getting good buzz (or that your blurb was really cool).

* I didn't make it beyond the first 20 pages.
** I made it to the end, but I either skimmed or skipped large sections.
*** I might have skipped/skimmed, but I liked it and might read it again.
**** I read at least 95% of the book and it was good -- probably will be reread.
***** I read every word, and I loved it! A favorite and definite reread.

This year, I'm only going to list the stars and a brief recommendation for the type of readers I think will enjoy the book [(R) means it's a re-read; [] means it's an ARC].

Starting with a few re-reads (all on a similar topic):

***** (R)
Souffles at Sunrise, by MJ O'Shea & Anna Martin -- highly recommended for those who like adult, male/male, foodie books -- Dreampsinner Press, 2/15

***** (R)
In the Fire, by Nikka Michaels and Eileen Griffin -- highly recommended for those who like adult, male/male, foodie books -- Dreamspinner Press, 11/14

****+ (R)
In the Distance, by Nikka Michaels and Eileen Griffin -- highly recommended for those who like adult, male/male, foodie books -- Dreamspinner Press, 6/15

And an e-galley with the same topic:

****+
[Under the Knife, by Laurin Kelly -- highly recommended for those who like adult, male/male, foodie tales; those who like *sweet romance; those who like food competition books; and those who like cooking details -- Less than Three Press, 7/16]

* I really enjoyed this from beginning to end, but I will say there's not a huge climax/resolution, if you want that type of thing. This is more of a gentle (and sexually graphic) love story (though there is tension from the food competition). I liked the MC and his love interest, but I did wish for a tad more conflict outside the competition. Still, I thoroughly enjoyed it!
