Heart Song (True Blood Mate #1)
Ten years ago, Darren Hart was rescued from a fall by a gorgeous man that tells him an outlandish tale. Once he returns to civilization, his memories blur and he begins to believe the voice in his head is a figment of his imagination.
Now, Darren is a successful veterinarian who believes he is ju ...more
I loved Darren. He was incredibly strong to have survived for 10 years, thinking the voice in his head was a left-over effect from the fall he took. Being told h ...more
Don't like the used of 'Bitch'.
Is Asher gay or it's a gay-for-you story?
Asher Grayson looked over at the man casually leaning against the desk in his study and scowled.
And now sudenly his name is:
“Ash! Asher Stone, don’t you dare walk away from me.”
“What’s he doing?” Darren ...more
Ash on the other hand.. all in all good MC but i found myself frustrated with him. To met his mate think he was crazy.. not try to explain things to him.. to wait 10 years to make a safe place... if you use this excuse you could use it indefinitely.. When would it ever be 'safe' to bring his mate home?
As far as who's b ...more
This was the first m/m romance story I ever read and it instantly got me hooked on the genre. Darren is such a lovable and exiting MC that when I compared him to see of the heroines of other books I read he came out on top. After reading his and Asher's story I then immediately went on to read the rest of the series then the rest of stormy Glenn's work and then moved on to other m/m authors an ...more
I love how defiant and independent Darren is and how he refuses to be put into a traditional Alpha-Bitch role. He's his own human. I had hoped that the story would continue and explore more of Darren's ex...more
I liked both characters equally. This was a nice change since I usually find myself liking one better than the other. Plus the other characters in the book were pretty solid and even likable. I liked that Asher wasn't one of those domineering alphas. And I absolutely loved the rare element added to the mating concept.
I found that Darren's willingness to forgive and fall in the role of 'alpha bitch' was too soon. But this didn't really make me like him less since Asher suffered to ...more
The main problem of this book for me was Asher. His personality was DULL. He was constantly saying sorry. If he wasn't apologizing for something or the other then he was having smexy time. It was cute and sweet at first but it got very old and annoying quite quickly.
I just wanted to shout at him to grow up and gets some balls and move on. It was like he was trying to be a big strong alpha but l ...more
I just can't tell you how awful the writing is, but how about the cliches and the plot holes? For instance, a supposedly "intelligent" veterinarian can't even t ...more
You can’t expect much from Stormy Glenn. She has some very good ideas at times but the execution of them feels often very unsatisfactory .
Heart Song was very similar in this sense. The book had its interesting moments but in the end still felt just too MEH for me.
The fact I’ve started reading this book on December 10th and managed to read the first 55% the same day only to then completely abandon the book for almost 2 months... speaks for itself I think.
The book was readable. It was managea ...more
Asher and Darren are a little of both I think. Ten years pass between them from the time they m ...more
So we have two guys - Asher and darren - who meet ten years ago and found out they were mates. But due to circumstances beyond their controle they were not able to be together. That all changes one night when darren is attacked and Asher will have to hurry and protect his mate before his dream of a happy ending dissapears.
A pretty common plot, right. What made it unique w ...more
This is a fun story with the requisite happy ending. I've read lots of Stormy Glenn's books, and have enjoyed them all. ...more
This is the start of a new series, well new to me, and I have to say I really liked it. The idea that Asher waited ten years to bring his love home so he could make it as safe as he could for him. It set a tone for the series as a whole that I like, one of acceptance and patience. If I am honest I don't really have much to say about this book accept to give a big sigh and say this author is going to have a good chunk of my money come pay day and w ...more
I'm starting to remember why I wasn't looking anxiously for the next one in the series.
Just didn't flesh out the characters with enough fresh dialogue.
Once again in this genre the mental abuse is overdone and the recovery is swift.
Why was Dary able to swiftly subdue all confrontations, but hid from a mad old lady wolf?
Why did the term alpha bitch not offend - it would me, especially repeated so often.
laziness dictates i will use this as my template for all books by the following authors unless a book is remarkably good/bad :
I believes the only thing sexier than a man in cowboy boots is two, or three men in cowboy boots. I also believes in love at first sight, soul mates, true love, and happy endings.
I live in the great Northwest region of the USA, with my gorgeous husband and soul mate, two boxer/collie puppies, one old biddy cats, and three fish. When I'm not being a mother to my six teenagers or cleaning up ...more
