I knew I had to read Bittersweet as soon as I saw “mountain men” in the description. And while it wasn’t quite what I was expecting, I really enjoyed it for what it was!

Ascension was quite the adventure! Alana dreams of working on a skyship. She’s stuck on land, doing repairs, but she wants to be up in the sky. Then someone comes looking for her sister, and Alana takes a chance. Instead of just telling them where Nova is, she stows away on their ship, and then tries to bargain for a job. It doesn’t quite go according to plan, but Alana’s on the ship and they’re on their way to pick up her sister. At least until a planet blows up and the missile was apparently shot from their own ship, marking them as terrorists.
The Edge of the Abyss was a great, action packed follow up to The Abyss Surrounds Us! It starts three weeks later and Cas is officially part of Santa Elena’s crew. She’s still struggling with previous events, particularly those involving Swift, but she’s getting by. But then their ship is attacked by a rogue Reckoner. Where did it come from? Why did it attack without signals? Apparently there’s been several sightings, and that can only mean bad things for the oceans, pirates, and civilians.
What happens when a professional gamer kills the character of a deployed servicemen in an MMO? They fall in love, of course! Strong Signal was so geeky, sexy, and sweet! Garrett has been in the Army for nearly eight years and is on his second tour. He’s mainly on base working as a mechanic, and spends his free time playing FWO. At least until Kai disrupts that when he kills Garrett’s character despite being many levels over him, which is a no-no. Garrett asks about his character and traces that back to his livestream channel. He’s not expecting a hottie or to find a connection with him.
I had picked up one of this author’s other coloring books previously and put it right back. I was so intimidated by the amount of detail! While less detailed, Mythomorphia is no less intimidating because the illustrations are absolutely mind blowing! As you can probably decipher from the title, the theme of the images is myths. It’s full of everything from dragons to fairies to the Sphinx. Some pages are pretty and some are creepy, but all are amazing.
To One Hundred sounded like exactly my type of book: student-teacher romance and sexy geeks! Sadly, it let me down. Grady and Eva have been talking online for months. They totally get each other and share a love of Firefly and American History. Then Eva realizes that Grady is going to be her instructor during a summer course, so she confronts him with the intention of saying nothing can happen. Grady doesn’t care though and then things get complicated. But not as complicated as I was hoping.

Saint is a fae who needs to take the lives of those he loves in order to stay alive, and he sees an opportunity in Grey. He’ll help him die, so that he can live himself, without the guilt. Of course, it doesn’t work out that way.
