The Book Lovers Codex

I am a twenty-something, happily married, mother of one who loves books. I love reading them. I love looking at them. I love their smell. Libraries and bookstores are my holy places... No I'm not being blasphemous. Books are my religion and if you don't like that then you're probably reading the wrong blog I love ebooks too. I love how my Kindle can hold thousands of books and wherever I go in the world they can come with me. I love how the emergence of ebooks has resulted in more books being published than ever before - for better or for worse My love of books is the reason for this blog. I want to share it with other people who love books, I'm opinionated and passionate and I want to share those opinions with you and see what you think, do you agree or disagree? I want to hear your opinions and your recommendations... Basically I want to share the book love! I will pretty much read anything that is a romance but I mainly read paranormal romance, urban fantasy, new adult, young adult, and erotica... Plus the odd book here and there that is not a romance of any description! So that's what to expect from this blog. If you like what you see, please follow!

Because of Low (Sea Breeze, #2)

Because of Low (Sea Breeze, #2) - Abbi Glines This book focuses on Marcus - Sadie's friend and colleague - from Breathe.

Marcus is a lovely character. A really nice, sexy guy who isn't an ass or a man-whore - a bit of a rarity in an Abbi Glines novel!
(Not that I'm complaining about the man-whore asses, they usually come good in the end...)

Willow is a nice girl who has a lot to deal with... her relationship with Cage is weird but believable. I understood her trust issues and despite the fact she seems incapable of dealing with a crisis without running to Cage I still felt she was a strong character.

The relationship between Marcus and Low moves fast - but not fast enough. It was very sweet but not steamy...

The interconnected family drama was obvious after a bit... You felt so sad for both Marcus and Low when it finally erupted.

I liked how they worked things out but I didn't like that you didn't get to see them happily existing as a couple as the book just ends!

I liked the glimpses of other characters in this book and I like how we got a glimpse of Sadie and Jax. It's nice to know that they are making it work and that Marcus and Sadie stay friends as he was so good to her in Breathe.

Overall a better book than book 1 in the series but still not great.

3 out of 5 stars.
