Book Review – A World in Blue by Danni Maxwell

Title: A World in Blue

Author: Danni Maxwell

Rating: ★★★★

Synopsis: At just eighteen years old, Oliver was offered a publishing deal. The very same day, he lost his mother to suicide. Two years later, he encounters a tall, dark, and handsome stranger. Never thinking he would write again, he is inspired once more.

Just as Oliver is launched into fame from the success of his book, the handsome stranger comes back into his life. His name is Blue and happens to be flirting with Oliver. 

Sam’s Review:

Full disclosure: the author is a friend of mine, but I purchased the book with my own funds.

I really couldn’t be more proud of Danni and the release of A World in Blue. This is such a sweet male/male romance story looking at a young man who has reached his dreams of becoming a famous author, but is lacking fulfillment and inspiration… until he meets Blue.

What I liked about this story was Oliver. I thought he was a very well developed protagonist, and I felt for him and his struggles. He’s a character whose negative traits were something I could relate to in so many ways… I saw myself in him. A lot. I also liked the development between Oliver and his friends, and I really appreciated how organic Oliver’s relationships felt throughout the story. I also love how Oliver’s confidence builds slowly throughout the story, and I loved how Blue restores parts of it for him. Blue was just darling, though I kept wanting to know more about him, which is my only real criticism of the story. I wanted more about Blue, I wanted to truly feel like I knew him.

I devoured this story in one sitting, and it filled me with many emotions. It’s short, sweet, but a very enriching story experience to say the least. Great work, Danni!

We <3 Melissa Giorgio + Giveaway

It is absolutely not secret that River and I adore Melissa Giorgio’s work. While we are a bit biased in that we’ve been friends with her a long time, and we couldn’t be prouder of Gabi and Rafe’s debut!

Seriously, we loved The Sight Seer. In fact, we fangirled it so hard when it released because it did so many things RIGHT for YA in terms of not rehashing the same stereotypes and tropes, and the characters being  so wonderfully believable. The characters are amazing, the writing is snappy and fun, what’s not to love?

Here’s the synopsis!

Gabi, Rafe, and all of their friends are back in three exciting short stories that bridge the gap between books one and two of the Silver Moon Saga. Join them as they celebrate Halloween in A Sweet Treat—can they make it through the night without Gabi destroying her costume? Find out what Rafe’s really afraid of in Indiana Rafe, a story told exclusively from his perspective. And in An Autumn Dream, Gabi struggles to make amends with a painful part of her past. Filled with laughter and tears, demon battles and plenty of kissing, this novella is a must read for fans of The Sight Seer!

Sounds awesome, right?
