The setting and world presented in this book really grabbed my imagination and got it working. I loved the whole concept of the story and plot and the characters grew on me quickly. Celeste and her flirty charm kept a smile on my face whenever she was in a scene while Laney captured my heart with her adorable shyness. Wonderful character development and beautifully executed interactions kept me turning pages.
My only complaints on this one were some editing issues that occasionally brought me up short and paused progression of the story for either grammar issues or spelling complications. The second was more along a personal preference line than an issue with the book or author directly, it seemed to me the connection that was apparent between the main characters (to the point of even having supporting characters commenting on it) took far too long to develop. I would have liked to see some kind of movement toward involvement from them earlier in the story. Otherwise I enjoyed the story and would love to read more in the same setting!

1.3

Title: Healing (Pandemus Chronicals: Book Two)
Author Name: Grace R. Duncan
Publication Date & Length: October 29, 2014 – 98pgs

Synopsis

In a world that’s gone to hell, will you let old fears keep you from the chance at more than just survival?

When Duncan stumbles into a pharmacy in search of something to fix his broken leg, he’s surprised to find someone else there. Like the rest of the post-pandemic world, it appeared empty. Instead, he discovers Mark, a former nurse who walked away from his profession after losing too many patients to the virus. Despite swearing he’d never practice medicine again, Mark patches Duncan up over Duncan’s protests. He even finds an abandoned house in the tiny town, and they settle in until Duncan heals enough to look out for himself. Much to the chagrin of both, they find themselves caring for each other.

Duncan welcomes it, thrilled at finding someone he can trust. However, he’s well aware of the shadows in Mark’s eyes and understands Mark’s reticence as he learns the story. But as he’s starting to do things for himself again, Duncan realizes he doesn’t want Mark to leave. He’s not sure if can get Mark to let go of his fears so they can stay together and love. But Duncan’s damned sure going to try.

I picked up book because I love post-apoc stories. I was pleasantly surprised to find out one of the main characters is bisexual, which I also love and adore. And it’s a great version of bisexual.

This story moves quickly in the sense of time, but I felt as though the two characters really got to know each other well. Normally I would call it insta-love, which I’m not a fan of, but since these two are completely and utterly alone, totally dependent on each other and because the story is so well-written and it slows everything down time wise, it completely works.

I did feel as if the ending was wrapped up too quickly with confessions of love and getting over said hurt (trying not to spoil, but the name of the book is Healing, so yeah). I wish it had taken a bit more time on the second part. Promises are good, but they don’t prove much in the way of reality. Which I think was missed a bit.

Overall, great quick read with loads of sexual tension. 4 stars.

A gypsy in her own right, Grace has lived all over the United States. She has currently set up camp in East Texas with her husband and children – both the human and furry kind.

As one of those rare creatures who loves research, Grace can get lost for hours on the internet, reading up on any number of strange and different topics. She can also be found writing fanfiction, reading fantasy, crime, suspense, romance and other erotica or even dabbling in art.
