Not the best by Z.A but still entertaing. There was a lot that was off, lots of jumping ahead which took from the overall story. I like Jeff but Ni3.5
Not the best by Z.A but still entertaing. There was a lot that was off, lots of jumping ahead which took from the overall story. I like Jeff but Nigel (Gasp) frustrates me. For once I wanted him to act his age, just freaking once but... He just never pulled through.
Another book or short story is needed for me to feel good about their relationship....more

There’s nothing that gets me more excited than a ménage, and when you throw a Japanese c ~MENAGE AND A JAPANESE CHARACTER. IT HAD ME AT HELLO!!~
There’s nothing that gets me more excited than a ménage, and when you throw a Japanese character into it O_O well… I just about lose my mind. The Hot Floor felt like it was written for me cus it embodies all the things I love to read. I am pretty much easy to please, but I do know what I want to read about in order to make a trias relationship work. I think the author did a really good and I can believe in their HEA.
Whenever Josh hangs out with his quirky friend in her apartment, he always gets an earful from the floor above. Denise's very sexy neighbours Rai Nakumura (cus I gotta put in his whole name) and Evan kinky love fest is enough to give Josh a heart attack, but somehow he finds himself lusting after the men. He thinks about what it would be like to get all down and dirty with them, but Josh knows all it will ever come to be is fantasy. First, he's too shy and blushes at the mere mention of sex, and his last boyfriend who dumped him told him he sucked in bed. So he really does not have the confidence to strike up a conversation with them. When Evan and Rai approach him, Josh is shell-shocked. It comes as a surprise when a friendship begins to develop between the men, friendship with an underlying of “I wanna rip our freaking clothes off”.
When Josh literally comes crashing into Rai and Evan's life he fins himself wrapped up in between two men experiencing the most amazing sex of his life. With sex comes doubt and Josh fears driving a wedge between the men, and losing the two men who comes to be his closest friends. Seems it won't be a onetime deal, but Josh still fears the unexpected. What if the flame goes out and suddenly he's being kicked to curb, and Rai/Evan move on to their very established relationship.
The author did some wonderful things making the sex apart of the foundation of their relationship. The friendship part of the story provided a building block to long lasting but it's with all the loving that I think Josh was able to get it. Nothing was ever perfect from the get go, and all the troubles that they encountered really provided a realistic feel and made their relationship all the more believable.
Josh is like the yin to their yang, he's like the personality trait that Ran and Evan are missing. Rai the flamboyant sexphine, Evan the big manly cuddle bear, and Josh shy and undemanding. He is the balance they never even knew they needed. So when it comes to what’s going on in the bedroom, shit is explosive. My pants have disappeared and I am waiting for them to return cus I must do a bit of grocery shopping.
I only had one thing that bothered me, and that’s when Josh was preparing a gift for Evan and Rai. As a glassblower, Josh gets to make beautiful things so I was excited to read about him presenting his gifts to the boys. I didn't get it, and I felt like it would have been a beautiful scene so I was all let down. Though one of the gifts eventually gets buried balls deep in him >.<
Yes, I liked the crap out of it, and loved how their relationship was presented. The ending felt a bit rushed to me (but that could be cus I wanted more). I am down for a Jo Myles ménage any day, she can keep writing about Asian characters I am always down for that. Loved It!!...more

There is nothing gripping about the plot and there really isn’t anything fantastic going on but it is freaking entertaining.
It’s one month later and James Hurst is living it up as a wealthy aristocrat after retrieving the treasure from his family home. He could not have landed the treasure without the help of ex-sailor turned treasure hunter (and other things) Ira Russell. The men shared a sexy interlude, and James then found himself being bent over and being called Boy. Experience with a man is something he had longed for, but of course its immoral and wrong and all that.
Now, James has not seen Ira in a month and he’s longing for him after his body had such a wonderful taste of carnal delights. Because of his newfound wealth, James has to be out doing important things, and he’s garnered unwanted attention. However, being important has led him right back to Ira, and now that he has him back, he’s sure that he won’t be able to give him up.
With all this romance and feeling going on, the reader never forgets that there are zombies and crazy people. There’s always crazies driven by some god to do some crazy and try to justify it (sorta sounds like the life we live in now). There is a bit of drama thrown in to keep the story from being completely pointless. I like it for the man love >.< I love the whole “I want you but I shouldn’t, and this so wrong I’m gonna burn in hell” Makes for good reading.
I am all in to see what happens in Scavengers: September, some drama is about to unfold and I can’t wait to read it. Bring it on!...more
Zombies have always been the one thing that scares the crap out of me above all else. I always say, I have a love/hate relationship with them, becauseZombies have always been the one thing that scares the crap out of me above all else. I always say, I have a love/hate relationship with them, because I can never just stay away. So when I had the opportunity to read about the creepies, mixed in with the man love. I was on it like white on rice. In all honesty as much as I wanted a bit more, I really did enjoy Scavengers: July.
James Hurst is desperate to replenish his funds when they start to run low, and as the saying goes “desperate times calls for desperate measures”. The time is 1887 and after a devastating plague, most human have become flesh-eating zombies. James must now go off into his lands that are over run with the undead and in order to accomplish his mission he must get the help of mercenary Ira Russell.
The men leave the city walls in search of a fortune hidden in one of James old estates, but before the jewels, there are some other things of value he must get his hands on. Seriously, James should have just head for the jewels. Seems zombies’ wanting to feast on his flesh isn’t nearly as frightening as it should be. While fighting of zombies, and retrieving ‘art of utmost importance’, the men find time to share a sexy interlude (seriously man freaking zombies).
I really did enjoy reading this short, but I had few niggles which knocked the .5 in making this a 4PO. I wanted more background on the plague. I know it was meant as a short offering, but I am curious about the how the plague came along, and how life was before it wiped out almost everyone. I wanted a bit more background on Ira, he’s all clothed in mystery (mercenary I know) but I really want to know if he lost anyone in the plague.
Overall, I really liked it and look forward to reading the next instalment. Scavengers has really captured my interest, and I want to read more about the things I love to hate zombies.
Warning: Do not have sex when you might possibly be attacked by zombies. You might lose some very important parts. No actual parts were lost in this book (luckily). ...more
I am going to call this one and say this series is turning out to be my fave this year. There is so much to love about the Lost Gods; I believe it shoI am going to call this one and say this series is turning out to be my fave this year. There is so much to love about the Lost Gods; I believe it should be on everyone's radar (if you love a good fantasy series). Though, Poison isn’t a fave of mine it’s still an excellent read, which should tell you a lot about the other books that came before this one.
Poison brings the return of Aillill who we first met in Treasure, and then in book two, Burning Bright where he was poisoned (tada) while on a mission to return the royal jewels to the Faire Queen of his homeland Verde. So I was happy to see him return healthy, and fulfilling his duty as a white beast. Being noble is not something Ailill wants to be, but he has a duty to fulfill and he will see it through. He will play a part in restoring the mortal reincarnations of the gods, the Pegasus, the unicorn, and the Faire Queen. For 900 years, the ritual has failed and this time they are hoping to finally restore the gods. Seem that someone has other plans and Ailill is smack dab in the middle of it. Because someone is poisoning all the white beasts and Ailill knows in due time he will be next.
Then comes Ivan, a mercenary Ailill met on his travels and a man he brought to his bed. It comes as a surprise when Ivan shows up at his home no longer a merc, now a duke. Together they try to solve the mysterious poisonings, so close to the ceremony of bringing the gods back to Verde. With no idea of where to start or where to look, Ailill can only look on as his brothers, sisters, and his home perish in a state of anger and hatred.
Seems that the gods of Verde have built a home on lies and betrayal and 900 years of history has been repeating itself. The unicorn, Prince Gael has a secret lover he hides from his siblings and use to be lovers. The story follows the two couples as they try to keep their relationship flowing in an up heave of violence and destruction. Whoever is poisoning the white beasts is someone close to them but if only they could figure out who would want to destroy them when they are close to bringing all three gods back.
All right folks, I really enjoyed this story but I did it find it frustrating and a little drawn out. It was so easy to figure out who was behind the poisonings and for the life of me; I just could not understand why it took so long for everyone else to. Yeh, it’s hard to see something when you are close to the problem but... gawd they took forever. Upside, lots more loving in this one and that made me happy. This one lacks the adventure and roller-coaster story line that I liked so much about the books before, but seriously, Poison is no disappointment. The ending kind of fell out in a rush but I always look forward to the endings in this series, I get to read, if only a little about the gods from the previous books.
Should You Read It? Yes! I believe this series is for all the fantasy lovers out there and should not be missed. Every story is so intricately woven together that I found myself going "oh I remember this". I freaking love all the colourful characters, and it is never a dull moment with the Lost Gods. Fantastic!...more
