Lean Against This Late Hour by Garous Abdolmalekian – Book Review

Lean Against This Late Hour by Garous Abdolmalekian is divine. I am literally trying to come up with a word that might precisely explain the way I’m feeling right now, after reading this book. I’ve read thousands of books but this one is out of this world. Each and every poem is a master piece. If the poems are so beautiful after being translated to English, I can only imagine how wonderful they would be like in the originally written Persian language. Idra Novey and Ahmad Nadalizadeh did a great job with the translation. I completed reading this book in just an hour and I re-read immediately. I cried after I finished reading the poems.

The author has described the current world where we are residing in an excellent way. Anyone who reads these poems will be a transformed person. I feel like I was reborn after reading them. I really am not allowed to say more but my heart is so full right now. I am in love with the poet.

I feel honored to be able to read this book. Thank you so much Penguin Random House Publications for sharing the Advance Reviewers Copy with me. The book is going to be published in April, 2020. I suggest every single human being to read this book without any age limit.

Intimidating and living by a strong code of ethics, Table’s integrity is unwavering, as is his ironclad will when it comes to safeguarding those he cares about. He’s the man to guard your back, shelter you in time of need, and be the shield.

Just don’t ever lie to him.

Table’s life is turned upside down when he unexpectedly discovers he’s a dad. Trying to navigate his life as a single father to a baby girl, he takes a break from his Dragon Runners MC brothers, moving to the family farm.

When Table meets nomadic Lori, who trades work on the farm for rent, he’s as intrigued as he is wary. She’s a woman who wears her attitude like armor. And despite her fierce independence, Table can see the fear dancing in the shadows of her eyes. It’s enough to make him look that little bit closer.

With the support of his MC brothers, Table not only is reminded that family is more than blood, but that some women are just worth fighting for.

Table by ML Nystrom is a wonderful book just like the previous three books in the series. ML Nystrom never seizes to surprise me with her wonderful narration. The best thing about her books is every single book from her pen has a very strong female lead character. I totally wanted to read the story of Table when his name came up in the second book Stud. I’m glad the author wrote it for fans like me. Lori is trying to hide from a terrible past when she bumps into the handsome single father Table. Lori finds herself in love with Table’s daughter, little Angel and Table, too. Table understands her fears and makes sure of Lori’s safety and fights for her. The story is very engaging. Table is a wonderful person, who keeps his promises and stands in the way of danger to protect his family. I was not much into MC romance stories previously, but after reading ML Nystrom’s books, I think I’ve changed my mind. I’m totally in love with Table. I hope there are more such wonderful stories coming from the author.

I’ve had stories in my head since I was a child.  All sorts of stories of fantasy, romance, mystery and anything else that captured my interest.  I’m a voracious reader, and have spent many hours in my life devouring books, therefore it’s only fitting I should write a few myself!
I’ve spent most of my life as a performing musician and band instrument repair technician, but that doesn’t mean I’m pigeon-holed into one mold.  I’ve been a university professor, belly dancer, craftsperson, soap maker, singer, rock band artist, jewelry maker, lifeguard, swim coach, and whatever else I feel like exploring.  As one of my students said to me once, “Life’s too short to ignore the opportunities.”   I have no intention of ever stopping so welcome to my story world.  I hope you enjoy it!

Book Review of ‘Stud’ by ML Nystrom

Stud is a Motor Club Romance and I am totally in love with this book. This is the second book from the Dragon Runners series. The narration by ML Nystrom is amazing. The story is totally engaging and I couldn’t put it away until the last page. Stud is an amazing character and I love him. Eva is one hell of a heroine. She is not a regular helpless girl but a very strong woman who can throw a punch or two when needed. She works on the construction site like a man but also holds a passion for sewing in her heart. I thought it was very very cute. Stud has a bad past and terrible relationship with his family but he finds love and trust at the biker’s club. The story says character, trust and honesty among family members are more important than riches and false prestige. I was not that much into motor club stories and biker romances and now my opinion has completely changed.

I want to read more and more books from ML Nystrom. I must say she has a magic in her writing. I can’t wait to read her next book. The pace is perfect, situations are very realistic, characters are strong and beautiful and the story is subtle. Stud is a wonderful read.

It’s Complicated (Undeniable Book 1) by Nikki Prince – Book Review

It’s Complicated is the first book from the series of Undeniable by Nikki Prince. The book was enjoyable. This is a story about friends who decide to go for a No Strings Attached relationship but end up falling head over heels in love with each other. Ashton, Keiko, Emmie, Royce, Aine, Darian, and Perry are very close friends from college days. Perry dies of cancer suddenly. Perry has always wanted Keiko to take her attraction for Ashton to next level but she never dared to pursue it further for the fear of ruining the friendship. After Perry is gone, Keiko decides that life is too short to live beating around the bush. She talks to her friends Emmie and Aine, and advises them as well to think about their interest in Royce and Darian, respectively. When Keiko talks about her attraction and her plan to seek a friends with benefits relationship, Ashton couldn’t say no since he is very much attracted to Keiko from the beginning. The relationship starts smoothly, they share a great chemistry and everything is fine. Just then, a jealous ex of Ashton comes along threatening Keiko to stay away from Ashton. In the meantime, Ashton and Keiko fall in love with each other deeply and decide to take it further. Though they face trouble from Ashton’s ex and her partner, they deal with it with the help of their friends and the story ends well when Ashton asks Keiko to marry him.

The story is very straight with no fuss. Its a cute love story of best friends. The friendship, love and jealousy are very well narrated by the author. There are few steamy scenes between Ashton and Keiko, which will leave you all hot and bothered. I had fun reading this book. I totally look forward to reading the next book from the Undeniable series.
