    2. Salacious premise that delivers without falling apart First love, a pivotal moment that remains emblazoned in the mind Some memories are sweet, some hurt, but for everyone that s had it run through their fingers and slide away with youth, it also carries a bittersweetness.Nico Blue is a rock god A star A mess Lost in his own persona, he s dying A harsh wake up call brings him back home to recover, to regain himself To find what he lost with time Jasper, a devout man of the cloth who truly believ [...]

    3. Normally I shy away from stories involving religion but I love Indra Vaughn s writing style and ever since I ve heard she was writing a book in collaboration with Leta Blake I couldn t wait to get my hands on it What can I say without giving away too much I fucking loved this book, I loved Leta Indra s writing style, how they created these two awesome guys I absolutely adored Jazz and Nicky especially Nicky, the broken, lost boy The effect of the heroin he d shot up in the hotel dropped off hard [...]

    4. Written September 25, 2015 4.4 Stars A touching grand lovestory My love likeI finished Vespertine a couple of days ago, and just smiled this was heartbreaking and so sweet but there isn t any time for review writing or reading in my life right now So just short and sweet A good read.I was truly interested in these characters life s, the topic really intrigued a priest and a rockstar and I was mostly in full attention and hooked That said even if I didn t believed a romantic HEA end in the start [...]

    5. Release day review posted at Sinfully Addicted to All Male RomanceJasper is the openly gay Catholic priest in his small hometown of Little Heights, Maine He felt the calling at seventeen and has not wavered from that path, leading the congregation for the past eight years The church s official stance is that as long as he is celibate he can be gay and be a priest, although not everyone is happy with him He loves leading his congregation but his joy is Blue Oasis, the church shelter he runs for L [...]

    6. 5 BIG and emotional stars My hands bleed From all the skin I touch That isn t you I loved this story Every word and every single page It consumed me, it made me ache, it made me dream, it made me fall in love with Nicky and Jazz It is the first book that I read involving a catholic priest and I really had some doubts But the authors did such a good job by writing it so beautifully I loved the fact that Jazz didn t feel that BIG guilt I expected him to feel and his choices in the end made me love [...]

    7. 4.5 Stars Leta Blake is definitely one of my top 5 favorite MM authors No doubt I m late to the game but I ve quickly made up for lost time And now I m sad to say I ve pretty much read everything she s written.She writes long books I don t even like long books She writes about some heavy topics sometimes I don t usually like heavy topics But there s just something about her writing that is so engaging that none of that other stuff matters I get sucked in and I don t care how long it is I don t c [...]

    8. First, let me tell you that I am writing this from Urgent Care with an IV suck into my left arm that is delivering me fluids because my ginger ass is severely dehydrated from the amount of tears I shed from this book KIDDING I am kidding Only about urgent care and the IV but let me tell you, the tears flowed down my face like a plenty while reading this When I read the blurb my collar fetish tingled at the mention of a priest, don t judge me I ve read some really hot priests in erotica Anyway, w [...]

    9. Just as amazing as the first time That scene when Nicky learns about why Jazz made his decision to join the Priesthood, had me baweling like a baby again I love these guys Goosebumps rose over Jasper s arms He hadn t felt this alive in a long time A sweet ache heated his blood and and a warm flush burst over his cheeks God owned his soul, but Nicky would always have his heart Original review 2015, November 26thBR, November 23th with Julie and Marco.youtube watch v kiVOtEven after 2 days I can t [...]

    10. ARC of Vespertine provided by the authors in exchange for an honest review This review has been cross posted at Reviews by JessewaveIn general, I don t like to read religious themed books All the guilt and hate both self loathing and hate directed at the MC s just makes my heart hurt Sometimes, though, I feel compelled to make an exception, when it s an author that I know I like and I am willing to take the chance I m so glad I read this book Vespertine totally blew me away This review may get a [...]

    11. 4.5 Stars Vespertine was a fabulous surprise Not that I was expecting something bad, not at all It came highly recommended by friends with similar taste in M M It s just that a priest and a rock star snort well, my dirty mind and I were already having sordid, hot and forbidden thoughts Vespertine, however, was far from that Was I disappointed Hell NO Firstly I want to say that this was my first book by Leta Blake and I absolutely loved her writing style There was something in her writing, a ligh [...]

    12. So I dithered for ages about saying anything about this book because I simultaneously want to be active on GR and yet am reluctant to say bad things about stuff And I m in this dark and alienated reading place which means I basically don t like anything Me, basically at all times.Anyway, this book is fine Fine It s probably even quite lovely.But I noped out of it anyway for reasons that are basically trivial and I m a dick I guess I m just prickly about explorations of faith and queerness it di [...]

    13. A few months ago, I beta read this book for Leta and Indra We d never worked together before, but I am an admirer of their work and friendly with both on social mediais was a five star book before it was edited.I was a hard sell on the topic of this book But, little by little, Nicky and Jazz won me over They were riveting, compelling characters, drawn with such confidence and empathy They gave me goosebumps They made me cry They made me cheer.This is an exceptional book, and I highly recommend i [...]

    14. I m full of all these big fucking feelings, and, shit, I don t know what to do with them Nicky MY STATE OF MIND EXACTLY NOW What a beautifully written, bittersweet storyMagic is just the right word This was one of those books where you wish you would be able to forget what you just read and read it all over again, just to make this experience once Just to feel the magic again Boy, did this book make me feelThere were moments when I could not stop the tears running down my face, just to find mys [...]

    15. I adored this book so, so much It s unique, moving, and sexy Before I read it, I didn t know that there are a few gay Catholic priests around the world who are out as long as they are celibate, the church has reluctantly accepted it So while it may seem like a stretch that Jasper is openly gay, it has actually happened in real life Cue that saying about truth being stranger than fiction Jasper butts heads regularly with the archbishop and church brass, so it s not as if everything is puppies and [...]

    16. God owned his soul, but Nicky would always have his heart And THAT is how you convey the guilt, turmoil and conflictive feelings of a Priest coming to terms with what is in his soul versus what is in his heart To say we lived, breathed and felt every moment of this beautiful heartfelt story would be an understatement Nicky and Jasper owned us Nicky, it seems possible that I m not a very good priest This is our first taste of Indra Vaughn and Leta Blake s work and what an introduction Vespertine [...]

    17. Read 2015 5 Stars Re read 2017 5 Stars I loved this book Please, do yourself a favor and just read the book.

    18. Eek Torn about the rating, and wavering between 4 and 4.5 stars, so will leave it at 4 There was a lot I liked about this story but there were also things that I didn t, and yes, the religious overtones were one of those things.This is the story of Jasper and Nicky Fox and Badger of SECOND CHANCES and also I suppose REDEMPTIONif I think about it realistically I m not going into huge detail, Leta Blake is one of my fave authors, and when I saw on Facebook that she was co writing this one, it was [...]

    19. No s cu ntas personas leen lo que escribo, supongo que no muchas, pero si est s leyendo justo es avisar que mi valoraci n sobre este libro est muy influenciada por mis opiniones personales, no creo en Dios, mucho menos en una instituci n como la Iglesia y siento un profundo anticlericalismo.Dos chicos de una peque a poblaci n del norte de Estados Unidos crecen juntos y se enamoran, pero sus caminos se separan cuando uno de ellos, Jasper, decide tomar los h bitos A partir de este momento sus vida [...]

    20. 5 Stars I don t know what to write I m still on the high left by this emotional roller coaster of book Just saying that I loved this book won t be enough I was a little skeptical about the book due to pastor and forbidden romance theme but based on reviews I went for it and I have to say I m just mind blown Jasper and Nicholas are childhood friends turned sweethearts At the age of seventeen Jasper got God s calling and chose priesthood and broke up with Nicholas Fast forward a few years onto the [...]

    21. This was not what I expected I think I have deleted and added this book to by TBR at least 5 times I m so happy I finally decided to read it anyway I thank Elsbeth, who knows me so well She gently told me over and over again to read this.So I did And I LOVED it This book is so beautiful It s written with so much emotion I felt the longing, the friendship, the deep love Jazz and Nicky felt for each other.Jasper and Nicky were best friends as a child and lovers when they were seventeen But Jasper [...]

    22. I usually don t like books about music or musicians or rock stars and people addicted to drugs But this was entirely different from the usual books where music is the main topic.Nicky and Jasper were best friends since childhood and then they were first lovers who experienced everything together for the first time Until Jasper felt the call of God and he abandoned Nicky for a celibate and holy life to become a priest.Nicky was never the same again He got into drugs, addictions and very bad compa [...]

    23. 5 stars.So this happened The fine writing of this tale unequivocally blew me away.I m emotionally invested in these two guys now I loved them, it was definitely reminiscent of The Sweetest Thing playing in my ear Man, I was waiting for the other shoe to drop while reading this I thought it was going to be too preachy, and I surely didn t want to see outright disrespect of the church or religion I know by now I say I ve loved a ton of guys throughout reading this genre, but I ve only been emotion [...]

    24. This book was a very nice surpriseThanks Elsbeth for giving me the courage to read this one I was a bit worried about the religious aspectbut turned out I shouldn t have been.Sure there is religion in this one s about a priest after allbut that s not all that it s about.SoNicky and Jazz badger and fox have been best friend forever Until everything changes when they are 17 They both have feelings for one another and one kiss turns to a whole lot Nicky is really happy with Jazz You see his mom wa [...]

    25. God owned his soul, but Nicky would always have his heart And THAT is how you convey the guilt, turmoil and conflictive feelings of a Priest coming to terms with what is in his soul versus what is in his heart To say we lived, breathed and felt every moment of this beautiful heartfelt story would be an understatement Nicky and Jasper owned us Nicky, it seems possible that I m not a very good priest This is our first taste of Indra Vaughn and Leta Blake s work and what an introduction Vespertine [...]

    26. A few weeks after Leta and I solidified our plan to go ahead and write this book, Much squeeing was done in emails, btw So fun we came across an article of a gay priest who had come out in Ireland and who was entirely accepted in his community, which made us go in search of stories just like it.I found heartbreaking stories of priests who had been fired when they d come out, but I also found some uplifting tales of priest who had come out and or stood up for the LGBT members in their congregati [...]
