Love This Chair

I was just doing some random online searches, just something I do every now and then if I need to put down a book for 5 minutes sshhhh! **SHOCK/HORROR**.
Anyway... I was doing a search on bibliophile and ran it through an image search this time and look at what I found!
I soooo want one of these! Doesn't look very comfy mind but then just add a few cushions and a snuggle blanket and  you are set!

I saw this badge and I could think of a few books to whom this could apply to some of the main charactors but then by the end of the book they have changed.
Books are the only place for this obviously but that really isn't my place to name names :)

Joyee Flynn - Marius Brother 4 - Victor

Victor Marius has watched as three of his brothers and some of their friends found their mates. He is happy for them. He truly is. But, as the oldest brother, he had thought that he would have found his mate by now.
Malachi is half demon, and he has known nothing but pain and horror. Finding a chance to flee the cave where he's been a prisoner since birth, Malachi runs until the sun and its harmful rays take him down.
When Victor sees the man lying on the side of the road, he stops to help but realizes something's not right. He's a demon. The man may smell like a demon, but he also smells like something else entirely...Victor's mate.
Can Victor get past Malachi being half demon, and how can a soulless demon have a mate?

Anne Cain - PawPrints #1, #2, #3

I have just recently finished this series of books in the last few days.
I have to say I gave each book 3 Stars but was very dissappointed that the series was left there. The first two books followed on from eachother but the final book just seemed as though it came out of no-where. I think that if the background charactors for the first book were continued on with we may have had a good series.

As it stands I am sticking by my 3 out of 5 Stars for the individual books but as a series overall I think I can't give them any more than 1 Star.

PawPrints #1 - Pawprints.
Veterinary student Adrian can't find the right man for a one-night stand, let alone to share his life. He's ready to leave love to the cats and dogs, until the stray getting cozy on his lap changes into the lover of his dreams. [Publisher's Note: This book is a homoerotic love story and contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: Exhibitionism, male/male sexual practices, menage (m/m/m), violence.]

PawPrints #2 - Giving and Taking.
Adrian and his sexy, dual-natured boyfriend, Lal, are headed to San Juan for a Christmas cruise in the Caribbean with their close friends Marty and James. While fun-in-the-sun and piƱa coladas are on the agenda, the one desire burning inside Adrian is to spend as much time as possible between the sheets with his boyfriend. Adrian adores his "cat" more than he can say with words, so he plans to show his devotion with a special present: for the first time, he's going to bottom for his lover. But the gift might be too much for Lal to take, especially when his former life as a sex slave taught Lal that's the one unbreakable rule: he isn't allowed to top.
For Marty, his relationship with his lover is put to the test when James' family balks at the idea of them as a couple. James can't imagine what his life would be like without his kind, attractive boyfriend, but is his love worth the sacrifice? The only way for Marty to find out is to put it all on the line...with a ring.
This holiday, these four friends will learn that love is all about giving and taking.

PawPrints #3 - Second Nature.
Gabe and Hayden have been sweethearts since high school, and as college seniors, they can't keep their hands--or mouths--off each other. As hot as things are in the bedroom, it's their love that really keeps the fire burning in their relationship. But there's a problem that makes Gabe nervous about accepting Hayden's proposal to spend forever together. Gabe is actually a dog...and Hayden is terrified of them! Bitten as a kid, Hayden runs from anything that barks, and that's kept Gabe's lips firmly muzzled until now. There's no way he can keep his four-pawed, tail-wagging side a secret when he's supposed to share everything with the man he adores. Just as Gabe decides to come clean with the truth that he's not human, Hayden makes a shocking discovery of his own: he's not human either. Caught between two worlds and the sex-driven beings known as Wairs who inhabit both realms, Gabe and Hayden have no idea if their love can survive. Especially when the full moon brings out a demon sorcerer set on coming after Hayden--to either claim him or destroy him.

Scarlet Blackwell - Rescue Me

After a near fatal car crash leaves him scarred both physically and emotionally, Matt Harmon finds the solitude of his huge, lonely house too much to bear. Hiring nurse James Hayden to look after him seems like the best idea for Matt, whose fierce independence has been compromised by his injuries. The two men clash from the start as James struggles to help Matt rebuild his shattered body and heal his crushed soul. The bond they form is forged in fire and ice, and the wounds they inflict on one another can only be erased by Matt's admission that he can't live without James's loving touch. Will Matt realize too late that James is the only one who can rescue him from himself?

I loved this book, It is not the normal take in romance, the whole; saw, want, have, keep forever.
This is the more realistic version where not everything is love and roses. Absolutly excellent writing and a full 5 stars from me.
