Book Review: The Hot Floor – Josephine Myles

The Hot FloorWhen Josh Carpenter was unceremoniously dumped by his boyfriend, he found himself just holding on to his job as a glassblower and living alone in his ghastly apartment. It was all spiraling down on him saved for the sexy times he gets to hear from his two sexy neighbors, Rai Nakamura and Evan Truman. When Josh fell into Evan and Rai bath tub – all naked that is, he found himself getting in the middle of a hot-scorching summer sexy times between the two. These however didn’t last without his emotion getting involved with the mutual attraction between him and the couple of growing by the day. When it feels like something was going on behind him, Josh feared that he may very be dumped – yet again.

Damnit to hell if this isn’t the hottest book from Miss Myles!

Josephine Myles have always been a favorite of mine when it comes to quirky reading. Her vibrant characters albeit the weirdness are all so charming! This one is no exception! Josh was just a total sweetheart and I feel like giving him the biggest bear hug ever! Rai on the other hand was a total sexy riot! What a real, real naughty sad! Evan was ugh – sex on legs – literally.

And the sex. HOT! HOT! HOT!

I guess this is one of the most important factors when reading a triad [which I’d like to call] – a polyamorous relationship in a story could only work if the author was able to make the three characters all likeable one way or another. In this case, the author was able to do that – over and beyond!

Ugh. This has got to be my favorite Josephine Myles novel!!!

Book Review: Junk – Josephine Myles

17798654[Book 1 of the Bristol Collection Series]

I always enjoy reading stuff from Josephine Myles. I love the quirkiness of her characters. This one would’ve been more enjoyable though if not for its lengthy narration. I feel like there’s too much talk in it but less action – less romance, that is. I mean the connection between Lewis (a professional clutter cleaner) and Jasper (a book hoarder) doesn’t seem much at all.  It’s like, that’s the story itself – the Lewis helps Jasper with his hoarding and fell for the guy. Period. I also feel like it was too rushed despite its length and didn’t have a stronger conflict to make it more exciting. Truth be told, I feel like watching an episode of Hoarders minus too much drama. I was even more interested with the story’s secondary characters [Mas] than the couple here. But hey, I’m not saying that it is that bad – not just my thing I guess.

Book Review: First Impressions Series (1-3) by Josephine Myles

FIRST IMPRESSIONS (First Impressions #1)
Surly artist Jez just can’t help staring at the brightly colored socks of the businessman who sits opposite him on the train every day. He weaves a whole history for the mysterious stranger in a vain attempt to stave off his attraction, but it only ends up feeding his bizarre obsession. Then one hot morning, Jez finally snaps and starts sketching…

I am totally loving this shorty about Jez and Steve!! It’s a very cute story of “love developing at first sight.” I just loved the visual of Steve wearing those quirky socks!!! And Jez’s locks was like OMG-asm!!!!! I’m just totally digging both of them. The story’s lovely, sweet and just too a-dork-able!!!

Last Chance (First Impressions #3)
Jez and Steve’s story is like one of the sweetest shorts I’ve read in a while and I so loved this uber adorable couple. In this third installment, Jez received some bad news from his old home that revealed a painful past he’s been trying to keep from Steve. Dunno why really but Steve’s such a sweet guy…and this one’s making me wish that their story will continue 😉

Book Review: Barging In – Josephine Myles

via goodreads

via goodreads

After reading some ridiculously good books by Josephine Myles (The Hot Floor, Handle With Care, The First Impressions shorties), I find this one a bit disappointing. Well, I liked Dan’s character here. Something’s missing in this book. I’m not sure if it’s the lack of convincing backstory as to why Robin’s an extremely irritating sod or the “strange” but unsupported characterization of the secondary characters. Plus, the supposed “hot scenes” here aren’t that promising. The last chapter was also was very anti-climactic. I just don’t like it whenever I feel like skipping a page or two in trying to move forward with the story. Arrgghh. I don’t like giving this a low rating but sadly,  it didn’t work for me…
