Review: The Long and Winding Road (Bear, Otter, and the Kid #4) by T.J. Klune

The Long and Winding Road - T.J. Klune

 

 

 

 

 

Oh man, this was wonderful. Perfect. I love all these people so much.

Thank you TJ for this amazing family. This family that started with Bear, Otter & the Kid.

 

 

Roads can diverge.

It’s tough but true.

It’ll be okay. In the end.

So you’ll go one way.

And we’ll go another.

Maybe one day we’ll meet again.

But even if we don’t, remember this:

We have lived.

We have loved.

We have lost.

But we’re standing.

For all that we are, we’re still standing.



Definitely a series I will be revisiting... Beginning with the audio. Funny how that works, even when reading this book, Sean Crisden's voice for Bear's verbal diarrhea is what I heard. Some narrators are just ingrained with the character.

*HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

“What are the chances we never bring this up ever again?”

“Slim to none,” Creed says. “When I am lying on my deathbed, my body collapsing out from under me, eyes milky with cataracts, my teeth falling out of my mouth, I will look up at you and whisper remember that time you were so hard up for Dom that you ran through a screen door. And then I will laugh at you. And then I will die.

I'm so happy TJ is taking us to the past first. It's been a while since I've read this series so it's good to get the story from another POV this time.

Review: Axios by Jaclyn Osborn

Axios: A Spartan Tale - Jaclyn Osborn

 

~~
My warrior. My lover. My heart. ~
~~

 

After reading this a week ago, I still can't let this story go.

Few books were able to gut me. And this was one of them. It hurt unbelievabely. And searching for matching pictures just added to the pain.

I’ve never watched the TV series Spartacus but going through some pictures I ran into Andy Whitfield.

 

 

And doesn’t he make the most perfect Eryx?? Understanding that he lost the battle of cancer in 2011 makes me bawl like a baby.

 

 

Being that this is the most EPIC love story I have read til now, no way am I able to write a worthy review. I do want to post some amazing pictures of these brave Spartacan men with quotes.

”For as long as there is breath in my lungs, I will love you. Only you. And even when I leave this world, I will still belong to you, for my soul will forever seek yous. In both this life and the next.”

Review: Arrows through Archer by Nash Summers

Arrows Through Archer - Nash Summers

 

 

Yeah, I would be happy at such a place too!!! Beautiful.

"I kinda figured. Ace always did seem happiest here in Banff. Wasn’t sure if it was because of the fresh Albertan air or the mountain ranges or the hellish cold in the winter. But now I figure it was because of you.”



This was a story about grief and loneliness. It's about being stuck in your grief and not knowing how to move on.

Archer had to endure a lot. Lost his parents, his brother cast him out of his life. The only person he had in his life was his best friend Danny. Danny was persistent in hawling him out of his misery. He invites him to his hometown Banff for the Thanksgiving holiday. This is were Archer meets Danny's dad Mallory. Mallory has been a widow for years and he's still grieving and lonely.

Being both quiet men, they get along great. Silences between them were never uncomfortable.

When Archer later returns to Banff to recover from a brutal attack, they get to know each other more. But Mallory struggles with their age-gap of 17 years. He's not ready to tell his son.

This is where Archer's POV changed in Mallory's. It was nice seeing the after through Mallory's eyes.

Wonderful to see two men that fit so well together.

I felt that soul-deep connection to him. It was an ethereal sensation of belonging and pride, like his happiness was linked to my own and mine to his.
