Another week. Ho hum. Nothing exciting planned for this week but next Monday is a holiday for us in Canada. I have a dentist appointment this morning. Ugh. I hate the dentist. Who likes it I wonder? That's it. Hope everyone has a great week.
State of Mind by Libby Drew (270 pages)
Grier works for a mysterious group called The Organization, which uses people with mental powers to "save the world". After a job goes way wrong and many people are killed, he abandons his job and goes on the run knowing he was set up and something ugly is happening. Alec is a young favourite of the Director who is sent to track Grier down and bring him in. Once he finds Grier, he starts to wonder if what he's been told is true. Grier tells him what is going on and then they set out on a quest to find the truth involving a friend of Grier's whose father is a big crime boss and an enemy of the Organization. It's a bit complicated with several characters involved but it definitely sucked me in and kept me reading. It seemed like Alec believed Grier pretty fast but I guess since they can read other people's minds they can tell if you are telling the truth. They don't get together until near the end, but I was so caught up in the intrigue I was good with that. :-) I'm sure there are lots of plot holes but with the psychic angle I just let them go.
Icing on the Cake by Shayla Kersten (65 pages)
Jeff is convinced to get the wedding cake for his best friend's wedding in 3 days. She sends him to Ollie, he can hardly focus on cake he's so enamoured with tattooed pierced Ollie. They end up together but Jeff is a bit freaked as Ollie's bedroom is a "dungeon" and Jeff NEVER gives up control. He's all about his career and staying in control. However Ollie convinces him that maybe he needs to try a different way, rather than never being with the same guy twice. It's a cute little story, only takes place over 3 days so they both admit it's just starting, not true love. I could understand Jeff's need for control given his past and he needed someone equally strong to get him to relax for a minute. Definitely worth a read.

They have 24 hours of amazing sex and you find out that David's politician father has big plans for him in parliament and he's never not done what his father wants save for joining the military. After Bailey confesses his love he tells David he has to choose, try and win his father's approval or Bailey. There is lots of Mordred and George and Kael and Hugh so it's kind of fun to see them all together and to get a look inside Bailey and David's heads. It's typical TA, an nice easy read which was I needed at the time.
