Teaser:

“You have deft fingers.”

Ash’s voice vibrated through him, urging River to make a move. The playful twitch of those lips begged to be kissed as much as River’s lips begged to do the kissing.

He wanted to slide his hands into Ash’s tangled hair and let their lips collide.

He wanted Ash under him, mapping every inch of his skin with his mouth.

He wanted Ash not to be off-limits . . .

But he was.


Review:

The first novella in Anyta Sunday’s new series Love Letters was an adorable, fluffy delight that tugged on my heart strings.

Admiring Ash was the perfect series starter as it introduced us to a new collection of loveable characters (that each have their own novellas!). Starting off, we get to meet Ash and River. Ash was just lovely, and there were so many times I just wanted to give him a hug. He’s our male Cinderella: he has only known poverty in his life, and struggles to make ends meet in order to provide for his high school-age younger sister; but then, he’s awarded an inheritance from a grandfather he didn’t know he had. He works as a housecleaner and librarian, and he’s taken advantage of by all of his employers, but he never complains because he desperately needs the money. Ash is a sweetheart and I was so proud of him, watching his character develop throughout this short novella.

River is our Prince Charming: he’s handsome, rich, understanding, and very sweet. He feels a connection with Ash as soon as they meet, but he promised Ash’s late grandfather (whom River has known his entire life) that he wouldn’t try to woo Ash. Although the more time they spend together, the harder that becomes … for the both of them.

A 200-page novella usually doesn’t leave much room for more than the romance, but this is an Anyta Sunday novel, and she is the master of juggling plots: amid the romance, you have the strong relationship between Ash and his sister, and there’s plenty of little clues as to the next two novellas — which made me so ridiculously excited.

Admiring Ash is a gorgeous little gem of a novella and if you’re looking for something quick, light, fluffy and fun, look no further!

is for Begging Ben.

Tropes: Pretend boyfriend, friends to lovers, virgin, brother-like, jealousy

Genre: Contemporary M/M Romance


Teaser:

What do you want from a real marriage?”

Ben paused, clawing back the “you” desperately trying to escape him. Not Landon. He was over that. “I want to have someone who supports me, and vice versa. I want conversations and shared interests. I want common goals, my husband and I, a team. Us against the world. I want to be so close to him that I can guess what he is thinking. I want a man who sees I have failures and flaws but loves me anyway. Who has a fantastic sense of humor and finds joy laughing at the silly things. And …”

“And?”

Ben couldn’t hold Landon’s deeply curious gaze. “I want to be his first choice. Not a backup when the guy he really wants doesn’t want him back.”

The silence that followed felt thick and taut, and Ben struggled to breathe.

Landon sat back with a determined stare toward the road. He licked his bottom lip and his hand rested on the wheel, thumb tapping. “You deserve all that, Ben. That and more.”


Review:

Begging Ben is my favourite Love Letters novella so far. From Admiring Ash, we know that Ben has been in love with his best friend Landon (also River’s twin brother) for their entire lives, and, well, y’all know I love unrequited angsty love, so to say I was excited for  their novella would be a massive understatement.

Ben and Landon’s novella is set just less than a year after the events of Admiring Ash and the two men are no longer friends. Landon’s unrequited feelings for bad boy basketball player Chance Sutton-Rosevelt has forced a rift between them and Ben can no longer watch the love of his life pine after another. But Landon is determined to make amends and get his best friend back, and when the two accidentally get married in Vegas after a night of drinking, Landon sees his chance to get close to Ben again.

I haven’t giggled and squealed and cried so much in a novel since Leo Loves Aries , my absolute favourite Anyta Sunday book by far, but now Begging Ben is a very close second. Landon and Ben’s relationship is so loving and strong, you can literally feel the connections between them while reading, which is a feat unto itself considering that this novella is about 200 pages long. It doesn’t leave much time for the romance to develop between the characters, but with their childhood connection, this element was so strong and believable.

I adore Ben so much: he’s a massive nerd, a gentle soul, and someone who loves with all their heart. He’s been in love with Landon since they were fourteen and I just wanted to smack Landon for being so obtuse to Ben’s feelings! But Landon was a great character too, one who learns from his mistakes. He is desperate not to lose Ben’s friendship and will do anything to bring them back together. I just love them both so much, especially as a couple.

Begging Ben is a novella that you don’t want to miss out on! It’s fun, flirty, angsty and romantic as hell! Please read it ASAP!

is for Challenging Chance.

Themes: Basketball, coming out

Genre: Contemporary M/M Romance


Teaser:

Brook pulled him tighter by the lapels of his suit, returning the kiss. He pulled back, breath drizzling over Chance’s wet lips. Brook’s eyes held a ray of earnestness. Something soft and unspoken drifted between them but Chance couldn’t quite grasp it. He frowned and stepped back. Ran a hand through his hair and glanced at himself in the mirror. Lips red, cheeks flushed—and he was grinning.

“Never stop smiling like that,” Brook whispered, sliding behind him, arms circling his waist to undo the jacket button. “You look amazing. I’d like to see that last jacket on you though. To make an informed decision.”

Informed decision, his tight ass.

He smirked at Brook in the reflection of the mirror. The sales assistant knocked on the door. Chance called out, “Just trying on the last jacket.”

“If you need any help . . .”

Brook drew off the jacket, palms sweeping over his shoulders down to his forearms.

“I’m fine, thanks.” Chance hoped he hadn’t croaked on that last sentence. Heels tapped across marble floor, growing fainter.


Review:

Challenging Chance was the novella that I had been waiting for since Admiring Ash. Bad boy millionaire Chance was featured in both the previous novel, but always as the villain: an asshole who is horrible to Landon, dismissing Landon’s feelings for him. But, as I love a bad boy, I knew there was more to him. And, oh boy, is there.

Chance lives off his father’s money and tries so hard to be like his younger brother, their father’s favourite son, but he seems to keep messing it up. His jokes aren’t any good, the women he brings home aren’t good enough for his father, and he’s often the butt of many jokes among his basketball teammates, who only use him for his money. He feels unloved and he’s incredibly lonely. Yeah, I want to hug him too.

Enter Brook Kalson, a reformed bad boy who’s trying to do better in life after setting himself and his grandmother back with his gambling debts. Brook needs a job to keep his apartment, and he has absolutely no experience as a personal assistant, but that doesn’t stop him from applying as Chance’s. He gets the job and he and Chance spend a good portion of their time pretending they’re not attracted to one another, while Chance also has to come to terms with his bisexuality.

I love that Chance is bisexual, but I love that he has a preference. That’s not something you really see in fiction: bisexual characters announcing they have a gender preference, and I’m so glad that Sunday included this aspect because it shows the multitudes of bisexuality, and that there’s no ‘one way’ to be bi.

Challenging Chance is a fantastic novella that will simultaneously break your heart and then mend it. Brook and Chance are amazing love interests who work so well together: they support one another unconditionally, once they finally admit their feelings for one another.
