A Perfect Bloom – Fluffy Gay Romance!

Cory Rocque is thirty years old, a successful company CEO, and a lot too busy for romance. That’s what he tells himself, even if his pesky PA and friend Linnet ain’t buying it, and keeps trying to fix him up. So when he begins to receive a mysterious series of romantic gifts – at the same time as developing a crush on Sam, the charming and attractive ex-con and intern, being rehabilitated while working in the horticulture section of the company, Linnet is wildly excited. The silly girl! Cory refuses to read too much into it, even if someone is sending him perfect roses (stolen from his own hothouses!) It doesn’t necessarily mean he’s heading for romance… does it?

The Charioteer by Mary Renault – book review

The CharioteerThe Charioteer by Mary Renault

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It’s a classic, but don’t even think about reading it if you’ve run out of sertraline or just failed your uni exams. It’s not a happy bunny read is what I’m saying.

A re-read usually produces a reaction of either depression or scepticism in me. The depression is easily explained, because this book is depressing as hell. And the scepticism is along the lines of ‘eeeeehhh, you’re going to do R a favour and stick around, L? Really? um, lucky lucky Ralph…’

I dunno. Renault’s preferences and character judgements are clearly legible between the lines, and I don’t agree with them.

Dinky Hocker Shoots Smack by M.E. Kerr – book review

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Great book. I adore Dinky, for declining to be brainwashed and cooperative like a good little robot. And also for her name. And Natalia, for… well, it’s hard to say. She’s certainly a sweetie, but a bit too willing to collude in her own oppression. It’s difficult not to have a certain affection for her, though. Tucker OTOH is just annoying, and John too.

I can’t believe Kerr is the same author who wrote When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit, though. Wow.*
*Well, she isn’t, that’s all. On checking, that was all just in my head, which explains a lot! It did seem an odd conjunction of styles and subjects.

Wolf Slave 33 – Alex Ankarr

He hates wolves: it’s the first principle of his life. This is a matter purely initiated through necessity, and for his own potential advantage. He feels an odd spasm, a twist at his heart, as Ree murmurs more, rubs his face deeper into Penn’s neck and sighs gustily. Reaches, catches, squeezes Penn’s hand.

Penn could never love a wolf, no, never. It’s an impossibility. It would lead to nothing but trouble for him.

Penn hopes that he could never love a wolf.
