Sunday Book Review, Cost Of Repairs

I know that it has been a long time since I have posted any thing, in part because I have pretty much dropped off the radar and have not even really been keeping up with any of the things that I have a passion for, sort of reading books.  Which is why I would like to try to make Sunday book reviews something of a semi regular thing, and I sincerely hope that it is something that you my readers enjoy.  On that note today I would like to review on of those books, Cost Of Repairs, By A.M. Arthur. I have been on a Romance novel kick as of late and Cost Of Repairs, is a romance, which also happens to be a gay romance.

I thoroughly enjoyed this read.  The book has a very good pace to the story line while also being able to flesh the story out fully, yet it avoids feeling drug out. The characters are very three dimensional well fleshed out giving you a full look into them and what makes them tick.  While it may be a romance the story line is very intricate and focuses equally on both characters and the complications not only of their budding relationship with each other but with the outside forces that have to deal with as well as the many secrets that they hold that are shaping their lives and where they are in them. One of the things that I especially like about this book is that it switched back and forth between the fist person views of both characters.  The plot is moved along nicely with reveling looks into the characters action and challenges that the characters have to face that threaten their relationship with each other, as well as equal parts of steamy action between each other which is described in such was that it gets the reader into the moment with out relying on stereotypical cliche descriptions of the action. (and being more on the real side, if readers are put off by more realistic depictions of steamy action, but instead want cliche illusional descriptions of said action this book may not be for them.) 

In the book Samual Briges is starting to build a new life in Strattion, PA after fleeing New Mexico to get away from a very painful past, and is starting to settle into his new third shift beat as a cop, and restoring his fixer upper of a house that he has bought.  he is not looking for a relationship, when Ray King who works as a short order cook at Dixie's Cup, the local dinner that is part of his beat catches his eye.  Ray is not only a part time cook at Dixie's Cup but also a full time handy man as well, his life is centers around his work, but it is not because he loves it.  Nether men is looking for a relationship Samual because of painful memories and Ray because work makes such a thing impossible and impractical.  How ever both men develop an eye for each other from the moment that they lay eyes on each other. They start to build a cautious friendship after a steamy afternoon of impulsive no strings attached sex.  Their budding relationship is put to the test after Ray is serious injured defending a friend from an attack, leaving his lively hood in danger, and exposing the weakness in their fragile relationship. 

Can their fragile friendship blossom into love against all odds?  To answer that question one must read the book. Which can found on amazon: Cost Of Repairs. I hope that you all have enjoyed my review and that you enjoy the book.  Untill next time dear readers.

When The Wheels Come Flying Off The High

So how do you get to the point where the wheels are flying off the your manic high, especially when you are supposedly supposed to be educated on your disorder.  For me that is at once a complicated and in ways a simple question.  It is complicated because there are so many warning signs to be missed or to be shoved under the rug, and yet so simple because it is rooted in the fact that your brain is saying that everything is fine and there is nothing to worry about, when in fact if you value your mental stability and balance, like I do, there is very much to be worried about.  This is not just so abstract question that I ponder in my mind like an artifact displayed in a case at a museum, it is something that is a very real part of my life and something that I am living through at this very moment. 

Start The Journey

Life is something that one truly has no choice but to take part in, but life can also be an adventure if one chooses to make it one .

Looking Back On The Road Traveled

Reflecting on where you've been On the hours, days, feet, and miles that have come before Reflecting on the challenges and beauty that lay behind Reminding yourself of all the wonders that lie on the road ahead All the promises, joys, and beauty yet to be beheld In the hours, days, feet, and miles that lie ahead
