Spring Reassurance Reviews
In the sequel to Winter Love, Blayne and Roeder are living quite happily in their one room cabin in the woods while renovations on a larger home are being made. However, for all their happiness Roeder can’t quite trust in Blayne’s love and still agonizing over the possibility of his younger lover leaving. This internal angst provides the motivation for the majority of the story with some created tension thrown in to round out the plot. While the prose and writing is slightly better in the sequel than the first book, the characters are still little developed with easy resolutions and answers to any possible conflict. However, the men do at least talk to each other openly and honestly, which prevents the overused theme of miscommunication. This is refreshing and kept the story interesting for its shorter length.The plot presented was still weak as the previous book where here the men focus on their move and reassuring Roeder over his many fears and discomforts. This includes showing Roeder that Blayne wants no other life up to and including a paranormal test of their love. While this test is outrageous and keeping with the simplistic resolution of any pseudo-conflict, it will appeal to the romantic readers who enjoy a love conquers all theme with easy resolutions. The conflict was obviously created out of non-problems, such as bringing back Blayne’s father for a confrontation, but each scene was short and quickly moved the story forward. So while the plot had some problems, it moved fast and didn’t linger on any one aspect.Blayne and Roeder are still somewhat undeveloped as characters with Roeder’s insecurities coming to the fore more than any other element of their personalities. Roeder’s fear of change and discomfort around most other people cause the men to live more solitary lives than likely Blayne would have otherwise. Their commitment and devotion to each other is reiterated numerous times and often the men speak of showing their love over speaking the words, thus prompting the several sex scenes. However, each scene was tastefully executed heavily on the romance and sensuality over explicit language. This more than anything had the story easy to read.The romantic ending was sweet and lovely, especially the letter from Blayne to Roeder on their anniversary and hinting at couples from other stories. Their story ends satisfying and fully explored without the need for future revisiting. While the prose and writing was at times too simplistic again and lacking a vital quality, more emotion could be conveyed with the fluid phrasing. As short read (~70 pages), combined with the previous story these are two sweet and enjoyable stories and should be read together for the full impact of their story. If picking up only this book, you’ll probably be lost in the characters and plot so start with the first story. While not fabulous, these stories will appeal to the heavy romantic who enjoys small paranormal twists without much angst or conflict.
Sequel to Winter Love, it’s actually more like the second part of the same story. I read Winter Love long ago, I think it was probably the second story I read by Andrew Grey, and always in the same Satyr series. What I remember of that story, and that I have found again in this next novella, is that Blayne’s character, the non-satyr, is in a way more primal than Roeder, the satyr. I will try to explain this feeling, Roeder is like a doe, he is sweet and kind, almost skittish; he is able of great love, but he is scared to let himself get attached, since he knows he is not able to live in a modern society, and his lifestyle is very basic and isolated. Blayne instead is more straightforward, direct and passionate; he is the one taking the very important decisions, maybe sometime overwhelming Roeder. True, he is doing it out of love, and so, most of the time, only good things came out from his actions, but nevertheless, maybe he should pay more attention to the sensitive Roeder.Nice, sweet novella, warm feelings and sweet love.http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0024NJY08/?...
They were not supposed to go at his home for Christmas? What happened? I presume they didn't go since his sister didn't know Roeder.
