    One thought on “Breach”

    1. Wow, that was a satisfying read! The story is loaded with non-con all the way through - there really should be a publisher's advisory - but also manages to be super-angsty and emotional. It's a long book - 643 pages in the PDF version and around 303 in the epub (warning: last 20 pages are ads/excerpts for other books) - but it has enough narrative drive that I read it straight through.Other men are sleep-walkers, Ishaan is a sleep-rapist. His nighttime security measures have failed enough that h [...]

    2. This review was originally written for The Romance Reviews and can also be found there. Although an incubus and a sexomniac might seem like a perfect match, when you add strong characters, stubbornness and buckets of self-loathing, it just might take them five hundred pages to end up together of their own conscious will.For me this book was one of those intended to broaden my horizons and push at my limits. Not because I expected something violent to happen in it, but rather because I've never q [...]

    3. A retelling of the Beauty and the Beast with the original catch that here both heroes, Roan and Ishaan, are at the same time Beauty and Beast. Plus there is the universe, as complex as a melting pot of genres.Roan is a incubus that is stranded in a small town without a whorehouse, the usual place where Roan can satisfy his thirst in the guise of being a male prostitute; at the local inn he finds an unexpected answer to his problem, they are searching for a “babysitter” for the local villain, [...]

    4. This is a kind of re-telling of 'beauty and the beast'. Ishaan is the 'beast' who must be locked in his room at night to prevent him raping people in his sleep. Roan is the beautiful young man and secret Incubus hired to lock Ishaan's door at night. Plenty of mostly sweet fuzzy non-con'Roan closed his eyes and pressed his lips to Ishaan's. Ishaan didn't respond, his mouth tight and hard, and a deep, immeasurable ache tore the soul out of Roan's chest as he realized that he'd just made the bigges [...]

    5. I don't usually pick up a fantasy m/m book, but the ideas behind this one just under-towed me! This story has some of the strangest non-con scenes I have ever read and yet, the entire story--despite its fantasy elements--is completely believable and absolutely compelling. I will not forget this clever and intriguing story any time soon! It truly came to life for me. The character growth was brilliant and subtle, and the relationship between the two men was unique and slow burning before it burst [...]

    6. The writing's not stellar and the way the plot was worked wasn't that great at times, but the concept is interesting. All in all, it was a worthwhile read, I'd say.

    7. no, tak jsem to docetla a bylo to hodne divny(awkward), mistama pekny, napsany to bylo dobre, a pak se tam navzajem hezky ti dva rejpovali, pricemz jeden ani nevedel ze to dela bylo to zuzoImho teda, kdyby byl Ish takovej hroznej citlivka zijici v ustrani a bojici se aby nekomu neublizil, tak se zastreli hned po rejpnuti svy bfbo aspon po tech dalsich ctyrech lidechbo ja nevim, mohl se odstehovat na jinou planetu.bo treba nejak na lod do vesmiru, kde by ho v noci proste nechali zavrenyho v kajut [...]

    8. Katica Locke. Not your ordinary author I tell you that. She's like the sadist to my masochistic soul. If you happen to get your lucky, lucky (depends on who you ask) hands on Katica Locke then you should know:1. She's insanely good at world buildingNo stone left unturned or magic left unexplained. It's fresh, new, and insanely original. 2. Dark, edgy romanceBe prepared to hate, get frustrated, and cry. This woman can play your emotion like nobody's business I tell you that. The stories are sick [...]

    9. When I first read about both MC 'problems/conditions' I though "WTF, it's ridiculous", but these worked in the fantasy setting. There were even more angst and less sex then I expected (kudos). I enjoyed the story very much.

    10. From the summary I thought it would be a darker read - the guys are actually quite sweet despite their conditions. An interesting world which I'd like to visit again someday.

    11. I put it on the dark, angst, noncon shelf, but for real it feels as a good written fairy tale for adults.Good plot, good characters, 4 out of 5.
