Inheritance Series #5-In my opinion, the darkest yet.

The dynamic duo of Quentin and Laurence are torn apart in this story. Laurence is kidnapped in an attempt to get Quentin back home. The Duke has had enough and will waste no more time.

Laurence is continually put through hell; tortured in an attempt to be broken.

Quentin’s mind wall begins to break and memories begin to seep through. Finally Quentin accepts who he was meant to be, but with stipulations.

The Duke is not impressed.

A family feud is the least of anyones worries throughout this story as lives and love is on the line.

Dawn Patrol (Tidewater #1) by Tami Veldura

Dawn Patrol (Tidewater #1) by Tami Veldura

*Written-not video review*

Dawn Patrol is a short story and as most short stories it leaves us wanting more.  Which in my opinion, is a good thing.

 

Elias’s passion is surfing.  When he’s out in the water he’s one with the ocean.  This is what catches Theo’s eye; Elias’s serenity, plus maybe a bit of his smokin’ body.

Theo is an artist and he’s caught ogling Elias.  When Elias goes to confront this stranger he realizes what Theo has caught on paper is perfection.  He then commissions Theo to create a mural on his bedroom wall.

Of course when you put two gorgeous men in the same room who just happen to have the hots for each other things go from a mild thrum to scorching desire at about mach 4.

 

I’ve never been surfing.  The way Tami describes the feelings, the view, the peace with being out on the waves makes me want to plan a vacation to the coast immediately.  She grasps ahold of something somewhat common and makes it seem magical.

Then there’s the scene when both men unravel and take what they want from the other.  Mmmmmm….soooooo good.

~More About Brooke Lee~
Growing up, Brooke’s mother instilled a deep respect for the English language and a love of words. She taught Brooke to read and write and shared her appreciation for poetry. As a teen, poetry became an outlet for Brooke’s innermost thoughts and deepest, often times darkest feelings.
In school, teachers always told her “write what you know”, so that is what she did. At the not so tender age of forty-three, she started to write her first novel, I Am ShelbyJames (Beauty in the Darkness) and it is what she knows—emotions.
In her spare time—when she’s not writing—you can find Brooke cuddled on the couch with her husband of 20+ years, their fur babies, and a good (often naughty) eBook—unless of course she’s having cocktails with her Bestie at one of their favorite haunts.
