Beanbag Love

I read. I write. I talk about reading and writing. That is when I'm not driving kids somewhere or teaching them. Married, educated, domesticated. I really enjoy the friends I've met through a variety of different message boards and venues regarding reading and authors. I try to take a positive view when I write reviews but sometimes I can't. Those times are few and far between, but they do exist. I'm mostly an old softy, though. I think so anyway.

Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell
Susanna Clarke
Mexican Heat - Josh Lanyon, Laura Baumbach This was a great m/m action/thriller/romance. Written by two authors, one of whom I'm a major fan, it was extremely satisfying in all areas. The suspense was powerful, the romance arc was poignant, and the overall story was engaging enough to keep me up way past my bedtime to finish it.

I'm not sure what I expected from this story, but it surprised me with its gritty realism contrasted with its surprisingly tender romance. It succeeded in all aspects of the genre.
