I give Love Runes
five stars not just because this isn't sugar, glitter or chocolate-chip cookie kink, but a realistic (as realistic as having the Goddess of Traffic as your next-door neighbor can be) depiction of a full-time S&M relationship. It also gets five stars for showing a side of Los Angeles most authors totally ignore. Seal Beach rocks!
I love the multiracial/interracial aspects and there's no FAIL. Hector as the God of Love is Daddy Supreme and yet he's got issues which he's honest enough to deal with. There were times I wanted to smack him and other times I wanted my "Papi" (those scenes were SOOOO hot)! I just love when a Dominant of either gender is written as someone who doesn't always know all the answers. In spite of Sam being a somewhat annoying twink (the type who usually makes my back teeth ache), there's a lot more going on with him, which makes him wonderfully and refreshingly honest. I loved him and hated him in equal measure depending on what he was doing (or not doing). I am glad though that he's started growing up (in all senses of the concept).
Another five stars for the warm and wacky Dewey clan.
An excellent sequel to Chaos Magic
. I'm going to miss Hector's Nanna. Wonder if she'll come and make pozole for me, LOL.
