Throwback Thursday #6

This feature should “throw” you back a year ago. This feature is made by me and I’ll post my read books in the CW (calender week) the year before.
I explain it: it’s the year 2016, I throw back to 2015. Every Thursday I look up which CW we have and go this exact CW in the year before back. 2017 I throw back to 2016 and so on. 😉
But let’s see how it works. 😉

Calender Week 41 2016 (october 10th – october 16th) — Calender Week 41 2015 (october 5th – october 11th)

My read between october 5th and october 11th 2015 were:

Broken Pieces (Broken Pieces # 1) by Riley Hart


Can three broken pieces make a whole?

Josiah Evans is the orphan who lost both his parents. He’s sweet, shy, and all heart. He wants nothing more than to be loved.

Mateo Sanchez is the son of a gang leader. He’s seen it all, and never hesitates to do what needs to be done, no matter what it is.

Tristan Croft is the wealthy attorney who clawed his way up from the bottom to rule his own world. He’ll never depend on anyone but himself again.

Three men who couldn’t be more different…and yet, as their lives intersect they find an uncommon balance that calms the storms inside each of them, and ignites fires hotter than they ever thought imaginable.

Told in three parts and spanning over ten years, BROKEN PIECES is a journey of healing for three fragmented souls, finding love in the unlikeliest of places—with each other.

What I think about it?

Menage always made me nervous because I feared of the lack of balance. But I’ve heard so many good about this I couldn’t ignore it. :3 It was like a revelation.

Nobody in this book was left behind, in contrary, all got their parts in the book and when you finished one part you wanted to read the next. :3 I really was into all three character after the first appearances. ❤

Full Circle (Broken Pieces # 2) by Riley Hart


Nothing in life is ever easy, and no one is more painfully aware of that than Josiah Evans, Mateo Sanchez, and Tristan Croft. They know what they want—each other—but with three people as broken as they are, all those pieces aren’t so easily mended.

Josiah is their glue. All he wants is to give his men what they need.

Mateo wants to absolve himself of his sins. To be worthy of love and to protect it.

Tristan must let go of his past, must learn how to need, and what it really means to take care of someone.

To keep the balance intact, they all have their roles to play. But what happens if the balance shifts? What happens when someone doesn’t play the right part? If one of them falters, they all feel the strain.

The only way to complete their full circle is for all their pieces, despite the curves and rough edges, to fit together perfectly. To do that, Josiah, Mateo, and Tristan must learn to get over the pasts that have defined who they are. And when an old enemy returns and threatens the foundation of their new life, decisions will be made, and boundaries will be tested that could change their lives forever.

What I think about it?

The second installement of the series, and what a blast of a continuation. :3 When I though it couldn’t get better I was proven wrong. :3

Again all parts were so balanced, so well developed, such a depth… Great. ❤

Love also the symbolism of the titles: Broken Pieces were the guys in the first book, connected to a full circle in the second book. :3 ❤

Losing Control (Broken Pieces # 3) by Riley Hart


On the surface, Ben seems to have it all: money, influence, good looks. He smiles and jokes in all the right places, but it’s all a façade. Inside he’s a wreck, and it’s only getting worse. With his Congressman father using Ben’s recent kidnapping for his own political agenda, and Ben still struggling to get over the only guy he’s ever loved, he feels like he’s losing his grip on reality and he’s quickly spiraling out of control.

Then he meets Dante, an enigma of a man with as much self-hatred as Ben has. In Dante, Ben finds what he didn’t know he needed: Dante’s control, his power, is the only thing that clears the fog in Ben’s brain. For the first time in his life, Ben has a lover who just might need Ben as much as Ben needs him. When they’re together, the demons from their pasts don’t lurk so heavily on their shoulders.

But Dante can’t fix him. Not when a memory from Ben’s past is haunting him in ways he doesn’t understand, waiting for him to put together the missing pieces in his head…and what he discovers just might have the power to break him for good.

Warning: light BDSM themes and mentions of abuse.

What I think about it?

The third volume of the series wasn’t about the three  – Mateo, Tristan and Josiah. This time it was about Ben. Both guys in this book, Ben and Dante, are so broken, so overwhelmed by their emotions sometimes, so heavy they lose control.

It’s a great closure of the trilogy, all three pieces connected. Highly recommended. :3 ❤

First by K.C. Wells


It’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.

All that changes when he goes to his first gay bar and sets eyes on Mike Scott.

When Mike’s not behind the bar at Woofs, he’s busy with his life as adult entertainer Scott Masters. Twenty years in the industry and the times, they are a-changing. Mike’s not had much luck in the relationship department, but as his mom is fond of telling him, you keep fishing in the same pond, you’re gonna reel in the same kind of fish. Maybe it’s time for a change.

And then a beautiful young man asks Mike to be his first….

What I think about it?

I could say so many things about this book, I guess I could write tons of pages. :3 But to keep it short but true: I loved this book. Yes, first I thought: age gap, ugh, no. But then – when Mike cast his spell I was as mesmerized as Tommy.

And you?

Did you know what you’ve read during this period? Do you have lists? Do those lists inspire you to re-read a book? 🙂 Tell me if you like. 🙂
