Cold Fingers – a love story
by Amy Spector

Christopher Minnick is at a bad place in his life. Turning thirty and newly out of the hospital, the last thing he wants to do is attend a birthday dinner even if it is being thrown in his honor.

When he is introduced to a friend’s godson things just might be starting to look up. Or are they?

All the good ones are either married or straight. Or they’re necrophiliacs.

Deadly Sugar – you can never be too thin
by Ofelia Gränd

After six years of a relationship going nowhere, Jett has moved away to start over. Maybe his new neighbour David can help distract him from the ache left by his ex’s absence.

David on the other hand has a whole root cellar full of lovers. He doesn’t need another one. And no matter what treats Jett offers, David knows nothing tastes as good as thin feels.

 

Review

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Deadly Sugar.
I felt this was a very interesting story, out of the ordinary. I’m always please to see an author who is willing to go outside of what is expected, and in this case i was very glad to have the oportunity of reading this story. I was very intrigued by David, i liked this character very much, i was trying to figure out his motives all the time and for some strange reason i was hoping he could get what he wanted, i believe that my feelings around this particular character are a proof of how good the author is, if she has the ability to make such character simpatetic to a reader. On the other hand, i felt a bit underwhelmed by the horror factor. I was thinking i would be frightened by it but it didn’t happened, even then i did foind the story interesting and i was wanting to know what would happen next.

Cold Fingers.
in this story i had a really big issue with the blurb, because there was a word that work as a spoiler to me. It was interesting and the characters were likable, yet i feet like it should be a little longer because i think there is so much more interesting things about them that the reader should know, at least i ended the story wanting to know more. I’m not sure if i was too distracted reading it but i found myself confused a few times while reading. I think the events at the end made the story so much more interesting.

Overall, and talking about both stories, i think were very entertaining, neither as spooky as i might expect but still really good and worth giving a try. Both stories are out of the ordinary and therefor might be not for everybody, but for the ones who want to read something diferent, this stories might be a good choice.
