The Shearing Gun by Renae Kaye (3.5 Stars)

Hank and Elliot are both really great guys. The entire story is told from Hank’s POV, and he was pretty interesting. I would have loved to have gotten to know Elliot better. He seemed to have an interesting background, but it was never really shared in any great detail. The other characters, especially Hank’s family, added to the enjoyment of the story. Unfortunately, the extensive time spent on the sheep farm and the details about shearing made the story lag for me. I wish that time had focused more on developing the relationship between Hank and Elliot. Although they were both pretty amazing people, and they certainly connected on a physical basis, I’m not sure I understood why they fell in love with each other. Overall, it was a fairly light and enjoyable romance.

Raising the Rent by J.L. Merrow (3.5 Stars)

Told only¬†from Nathan’s POV, this was a cute romance. The story was a bit sad because Nathan was dirt poor, trying to go to college while working the streets, and then he gets physically assaulted. Stephen, Nathan’s professor, takes him in, but they never really have any serious conversations to make me understand why they were together. The ending was also really abrupt, which would have worked if I had believed in the relationship.

Caught (The Shamwell Tales #1) by JL Merrow (3.5 Stars)

Told from Robert’s POV, he just wasn’t interesting enough to make me want to spend that much time watching him live his life. Sean seemed to have more going on in his life, and his job in pest control could have made for some really fun stories, but that didn’t happen much. I was never convinced of the romance between the two of them. They broke up and got back together several times which did nothing to convince me that they would stay together. As Robert’s best friend, Rose was a tad over-the-top, but at least she provided some comedic relief.

Midnight Shadows (Midnight #3.5) by Lisa Marie Rice (3.5 Stars)

Enjoyable epilogue to the original story. It contained very little dialogue, and instead was a narrative by each of the characters about their profound love for each other and how they were dealing with the recovery of her eyesight. Although I enjoyed this visit with one of my favorite series, it should have just been a part of the original story.
