    Blue Rose is an odd story with two seemingly unrelated parts to it The first part is so sweet it may test even the most die hard romantics The characters meet exchange their life stories in a bar sleep together and are soul mates before the sun has come up They’re totally in love swearing eternal fidelity and moving in together for the long haul This of course ignores some major issues the story has set up but who cares since love at first sight cures everything The next part of the story deals with Enjoji and uinn’s family expectations and the typical over the top evil villain – who actually has henchmen The second half is marginally better than the first but the syrupy sweet love made me roll my eyes too much to enjoy this one The blurb warns readers that the characters fall in love at first sight so it’s not a big surprise that they immediate have sex without lube or condoms mind you but it’s still too much when they’re declaring they are soul mate status mere hours later This stretches any kind of belief since Enjoji is not only straight but engaged to be married uinn thinks nothing of this since it’s a Japanese arranged marriage and is all about getting in Enjoji’s pants anyway Although Enjoji’s never been attracted to a man before he’s well into the sex even rimming uinn The fiancé and straight status are never thought of again as Enjoji and uinn can’t spend a moment apart from each other uinn immediately moves in they declare their undying love constantly to each other and everyone else and the story then skips ahead time while telling the reader why they’re so happy happy in love I admit I had some problems with this since the story spends considerable time setting up uinn as near perfect He’s the oldest son of a widowed mother with a younger sister and he’s not only working several jobs to put himself through college but to send money home too He’s brilliant good at nearly everything handsome charismatic and falls in love with his soul mate the first day back at college The love of his life wasn’t gay but turns gay at the first kiss and is totally devoted to uinn with no ualms about suddenly being gay Likewise Enjoji is near perfect He lives a somewhat humble existence above the music bar that is his passion but is filthy rich as the family CEO and the head of the YakuzaFor those that don’t know the Yakuza is a Japanese crime syndicate but don’t worry since Enjoji is turning it all legitimate with great results So perfection is really the main descriptor here as Enjoji’s money and influence all for good mind you pretty much cures any problem that crops up There are some problems later on in the story with a twist on uinn’s past These introduce the tension and conflict into the story There are some issues with uinn’s grandfather – the evil villain with henchmen – but again Enjoji clears these up rather uickly all the way calling uinn his beloved “my love” and no one batting an eye at two men openly affectionate at the head of a Japanese crime family The story has some good elements most notably the uirk regarding uinn’s past and upbringing This actually is what pulled me back into the story when I wanted to die from the sugary sweet overdose The twist – without giving spoilers – is interesting and clever and actually plays well to the Yakuza history The villain is over the top without a shred of subtly but I almost could have gone with that if the resolution hadn’t been so bland and boring There are way too many coincidences as well that just conveniently take care of any problem and the resolution with uinn’s mother had me groaning at its obviousness and ridiculousness I think the easiest way to describe this book is extreme From the good to the bad the story goes over the top in the descriptions actions and characters The men certainly communicate but they are constantly reassuring each other that they love each other they’ll never leave they’re soul mates they could forgive anything and the language used is often very corny Lines like “their love took them higher than any man made machine could ever take them” pg 139 litter the writing and make the story difficult to enjoy On the one hand this makes for a romantic story with a definite happy ending but on the other hand it’s just too sappy sweet for me I need something to cut through that and give some good tension and release

    What a strange book Terribly uneven too It goes along rather well then suddenly there are little portions that like a gradeschooler's attempt I winced when Enjoji whose last name Tatankata was a tongue twister for me fucked uinn vigorously without lube Twice I believeI found the entire story reuired a suspension of belief that was beyond me I had no problems with uinn and Enjoji having sex within a few hours of meeting but I did have a big issue with them declaring eternal love to each other after their orgasm Undying love after a few hours?Oh I'd better add that Enjoji is the head of a clan belonging to the Yakuza Yup The Yakuza And uinn also turns out to belong to a family connected to the Yakuza I may not know much about the Yakuza beyond what I've heard or seen in the media but I don't think I'd be that far wrong to say they don't go around calling their partners my love at every turn billing and cooing at each other as they figure out how to extricate themselves from the obligations of being a part of this ruthless organization


  3. Jeri Jeri says:

    I debated with myself over the one star; it seems harsh But I couldn't justify any better for a story that feels like one of the most amateur feeling published works I've read in a while Unrealistic characters and over the top sweetness I can handle – and even enjoy in a guilty pleasure way – but this went well beyond that point even for a story I'd otherwise find appealing And this story was not all that appealing at least not once we'd gotten past the soul mates at first meeting thing That always has a certain appeal


  4. Betryal Betryal says:

    Tear jerker alert All I can say is sniffs this story is well written very touching and kept me pinned to every word till the very end I would definitely read by this author I'm a tad emotionally overwhelmed so I warn you to have the Kleenex at your ready I need something happy go lucky now after this one Ok so I came back to alter this a bit The tear jerking part? It's not that long but long enough to really get a tear or two out of you I'm not going to spoil this and say any on it and the ending is priceless and superb definitely HEA for those of you HEA lovers snickering 'Nough said Adios
