FIVE STAR FRIDAY Review: Bear, Otter & the Kid, by T.J. Klune

I know it’s been radio-silence from me this week. There’s been lots happening and I haven’t been able to pop in. But, I had no intention of missing Five Star Friday.

This week I selected one of my favorite sweet reads from one of my favorite authors. That’s kind of a lie. It’s not all sweetness. There’s angst, there’s some tear-jerking, great humor, but there’s also lots of love and an amazing cast of characters that create an even more amazing family finding their way.

I needed to bring something relatively light this week. So I wanted a book that shows that family doesn’t always mean the people who share our blood and genes. Sometimes it’s in the people we choose.

Review: How To Be A Normal Person, by T.J. Klune

The Blurb:

HowToBeANormalPerson-TJKluneGustavo Tiberius is not normal. He knows this. Everyone in his small town of Abby, Oregon, knows this. He reads encyclopedias every night before bed. He has a pet ferret called Harry S. Truman. He owns a video rental store that no one goes to. His closest friends are a lady named Lottie with drag queen hair and a trio of elderly Vespa riders known as the We Three Queens.

Gus is not normal. And he’s fine with that. All he wants is to be left alone.

Review: Rattlesnake, by Kim Fielding

The Blurb:

Rattlesnake-kfieldingA drifter since his teens, Jimmy Dorsett has no home and no hope. What he does have is a duffel bag, a lot of stories, and a junker car. Then one cold desert night he picks up a hitchhiker and ends up with something more: a letter from a dying man to the son he hasn’t seen in years.

On a quest to deliver the letter, Jimmy travels to Rattlesnake, a small town nestled in the foothills of the California Sierras. The centerpiece of the town is the Rattlesnake Inn, where the bartender is handsome former cowboy Shane Little. Sparks fly, and when Jimmy’s car gives up the ghost, Shane gets him a job as handyman at the inn.

Review: First, by K.C. Wells

The Blurb:

First-kcwellsIt’s taken Tommy Newsome a while to get his head around being gay.

Growing up in a small town in Georgia, hasn’t prepared him for the more liberal life of a student at the university in Athens. Add to that the teachings of his parents and his church, and you have one shy young man who feels out of his depth. Working on his daddy’s farm hasn’t given him any chance of a social life, certainly not one like the clubs of Atlanta have on offer. Not that Tommy feels comfortable when he gets to sample it—Momma’s lectures still ring loudly inside his head.

📚Review: Sloe Ride (Sinners #4) by Rhys Ford

Blurb:

sloeride-rhysfordIt isn’t easy being a Morgan. Especially when dead bodies start piling up and there’s not a damned thing you can do about it.

Quinn Morgan never quite fit into the family mold. He dreamed of a life with books instead of badges and knowledge instead of law—and a life with Rafe Andrade, his older brothers’ bad boy friend and the man who broke his very young heart.
