Book Reports (127-128)...

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].

[Boyfriend Material, by K.A. Mitchell -- highly recommended for those who liked the first, those who like new adult, male/male romance, and those who like *vulnerable heroes -- Carina Press, 8/16]

* In the first book, we got to see things through Ethan's eyes; this time, it was Wyatt's turn, and I really like how vulnerable both young men are. I like seeing how they struggle and grow through the story.

[Bad Judgment, by Sidney Bell -- highly recommended for those who like adult, male/male romantic suspense, those who like heroes overcoming troubled pasts, and those who like *love victorious -- Carina Press, 9/16]

* Although this is billed as suspense (and it does fit the bill), I found it to be a bit heavier on the drama portions. Still, I found it very engaging (despite the somewhat graphic moments of violence -- rare but still in place), and I loved the relationship between the two men (Brogan and Embry).
