The Lumberjack and the Omega

Yeah so… LOL.

The thing is, I feel like I should know a little about M/M lumberjack stories since I’ve written a few. It’s not often I see them around, though, so when I was scrolling through Amazon and spotted The Lumberjack and the Omega by Canis Blackfang I stopped.

My expectations weren’t very high. It says it’s an M-preg story and while I think everyone has the right to read whatever pleases them M-preg is one thing I just don’t do – sorry. But there was the lumberjack part and I do love a good alpha/omega story, so I gave it a go.

Lex has left his pack and home behind him. He’s tired of having to do all the things expected of an omega and seeks a job up in the mountains. After an encounter with a burly man on the bus who tries to intimidate Lex, he decides to pose as an alpha in the lumberjack camp.

He soon realises it might not have been the best idea he’s ever had, and when he’s paired up with an alpha who kicks his mating instincts into high gear, yelling timber isn’t what’s on his mind.

I enjoyed this more than I thought I would and while there isn’t much of a story, we have an alpha and an omega sating their urges among the fallen trees and no one got pregnant while it lasted so I’m good LOL.

Lost Along the Way

Lost Along the Way (Tales of the Curious Cookbook #3) by Marie Sexton.

So this is the third book in a series and I haven’t read the first two LOL. I don’t think it matters, though. Tales of the Curious Cookbook is a series of six books written by different authors. What they have in common is Granny B’s cookbook.

Danny has been with his man for the last fifteen years, he gave up his family to be with him. He’s just started to reconnect with his parents when they pass away in a car accident. His husband has no interest in helping Danny sort out his parents’ home, he has no interest in seeing Danny all that much either.

While dealing with his parents’ clutter, Danny gets to know Landon – neighbour and wind sculptor. A cookbook is sent to them and once a banana bread is created things turn a bit strange.

While this isn’t my favourite Marie Sexton story but a knot formed in my stomach right at the beginning at the mentioned on an oil stain on the driveway and then it didn’t really go anyway until Danny was where he was supposed to be.

And he’s a weatherman! How many main characters do you come across who are weathermen?

The concept of a somewhat magic cookbook was fun and I might try some of the other stories just to see their take on it.

Lost Along the WayThree months after losing his parents in a car crash, Denver weatherman Daniel Whitaker returns to Laramie, Wyoming. It’s bad enough dealing with the death of his parents and his failing relationship of fifteen years, but when he finds his childhood home full of clutter, Daniel is at a loss. He enlists Landon, his parents’ sexy neighbor, to help him sort through the mess. Landon Kushner is a study in contradictions. He builds wind sculptures out of scrap metal and loves the outdoors, but he also rides a mint-green Vespa and has an affinity for knitting and fortune-telling. He’s been friends with Daniel’s parents for years, and he’s more than willing to lend a hand.

Their plan is simple: clean the house so Daniel can sell it and get back to his life in Denver. But when a strange cookbook comes into Landon’s possession, Daniel begins to realize that the universe–and Granny B–may have other plans.

The Bone Orchard – Ghosts and Murders

Well, this was an odd mix of…things. We have ghosts and murders, and the story goes from historical to modern day.

US Marshal Ambrose Shaw is hunting down a serial killer but is killed in the process. Ezra Johns, a Pinkerton inspector comes to town to testify against the serial killer and ends up dead too. The two then spend the rest of their days as ghosts, hunting said serial killer.

I liked the beginning of the story, but then when it felt like it should end it just kept going. And not that it kept going towards something, it kept going to show that time kept going…sort of. For a moment I considered giving up, but then things picked up and it got interesting. And then it ended.

So, I’m torn. I’ve read several Abigail Roux books, liked most of them, but when I turned a page and saw the Riptide logo indicating the story had ended I had a WTF-moment LOL.

If you like ghost stories give it a go, but if you’re looking for a sizzling paranormal romance this might not be your best bet.

Other ghost stories you might like, or maybe you want a historical


The Bone OrchardAfter leaving a trail of terror and death in his wake, the notorious “Missouri” Boone Jennings finally meets his match in San Francisco when US marshal Ambrose Shaw catches up to him. The story of his capture, and the marshal’s bravery, has already become legend back east by the time Pinkerton inspector Ezra Johns gets off the train from New York City to testify in the murderer’s trial.

When Ambrose is unable to give witness to the evils he’s seen, Ezra becomes their lone hope for putting Jennings in a noose. But if Ezra thinks that’s his biggest problem, he’s got plenty to learn about life—and the afterlife—in the spirited West.

Fortunately, Ambrose is there to assist, and more than happy to oblige Ezra—in the courtroom or the bedroom. He spent his life bringing justice to the Wild West, and if he has a say in it, that’s how he’ll be spending his death too.
