    • 3.5*I loved the setting of where this book took place and I also loved the Scottish accent. Declan and Sam meet over email when they are both given the job as co-best man for Declan's brother and Sam's sister's wedding. They get on well over emails but their first encounter doesn't go so smooth. Things are a bit awkward at the beginning but soon they tied to the hip and sometimes tied up in bed. *wink*The men become very close and share a lot of intimate time with each other barely leaving their [...]


    • 3.5 StarsIn As You Wish Declan Ramsay and Sam Aiken are co-best-men at the wedding of Declan's brother and Sam's sister. They get off to a rocky start but soon are inseparable and many sexytimes ensue. And lots and lots of quotes from one of my all time favorite movies, The Princess Bride.I really enjoyed the story, the setting at a Scottish Highland castle and the antics these two employed to get to spend more time alone together. And I really enjoyed Sam and Declan. And that Declan did not bea [...]


    • 3.5 StarsIn all honesty, I don't know whether or not to take this story very seriously. At times it was kinda far fetched in its insta-love, GFY plot line. At other times it was quite the emotional, serious read. Ever the perpetual ladies man, Declan goes through women quickly and abundantly, never really connecting. He's been looking forward to meeting his fellow best man and is dumbfounded by their combustible chemistry. His big head is saying no, but his little head is definitely saying yes, [...]



    • Awwww, this was so sweet!! Lovely story that left me wanting more. I truly hope we get a full length novel about Declan and his adorable Sam.


    • Review also on my blog I received an arc from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review Oh boy oh boy, I don't even know where to begin with this book! Boy was this bad. Look, it's a m/m romance book, I get it. I'm not expecting anything spectacular. But this was bad. Let's start with the writing, it was terrible. I've read some bad writing in my time but this had awful writing. The start of the book wasn't too bad but one thing Declan does is, wait for it, describe ho [...]



    • The narration is terrific and Gary Furlong is a pure pleasure to listen to. I really enjoyed his accents, easily distinguishable character voices, the infusion of humor and emotion he puts into his performance, and his great pacing. I really liked the that there is plenty of humor in the story with both Sam and Declan being quite witty and quippy. I'm also a big fan of The Princess Bride and I loved all the nods and winks to it. I was less thrilled with the multiple POV changes that were sometim [...]


    • This was so not my book though it should have been: GFY and Scottish men. I wish authors would stop using GFY to work through their own internalized misogyny. Declan's loathing of the bride's best friend and his last internet date being case in point. Seriously women being harridans and stupid sluts totally undermines the case for GFY (and yes i know that the case for seriously arguing for realistic GFY is sitting on quickly melting ice but it's my thing so I will). There was good grammar and pr [...]



    • I've given this an A- for narration and a C+ for content at AudioGals, which averages out around 4 stars.As You Wish is the first book in Isobel Starling’s Shatterproof Bond series which – so far – comprises four books (and a prequel) in which the storylines are all inter-related and the romance progresses throughout. I knew before I started listening that this story wasn’t self-contained and that it is to be continued into the next book (Illuminate the Shadows) and beyond, so please [...]



    • DNF @ 34% due to unprovoked insta-lust from a 32 year old straight man.*sigh* I have no patience. I refuse to spend my prized reading time with raised eyebrows and rolling eyes.


    • So I saw this one and I was like, yeah, novella, okay, I'm crunching on time here but I think I can sneak that one in.Novella mhmm. Okay, Isobel Starling, I see the game you're playing here. I'll just have to make sure I clear my schedule for the week before I start that "full length" novel of yours.In all seriousness though, I enjoyed this one a lot more than I thought I was going to! I was immediately drawn to Sam as an MC because he was quirky and lighthearted. His character  made me laugh, [...]


    • I might come back to this, but so far this is not a good book for me.Something with the POV and the douche-ness of the MCs has me put off by this


    • In the beginning I was like "meh" but I got to the hot scenes and I half sat up a little, then it was implied that Sam might be more than what he seems and then I rubbed my eyes and started to pay attention and then he (view spoiler)[left for three months, left Dec a mess who missed him miserably, and when he came back he revealed exactly what he does(hide spoiler)] and then the writer had my full attention. The stars kept coming, but the very last star is reserved for if I ever get a chance to [...]



    • This was my first Isobel Starling Book. I loved the Main Characters. Their chemistry was amazing and the sex scenes were off the charts. My problem was with the writing. I loved how the story was developing. But it was difficult to keep up with the writing style where the author jumped through different POVs within a single chapter. I wish the transition of the different POVs was a bit more clear. The story was fast paced as well as slow paced. Fast paced in the sense that the romance between th [...]


    • da sognipensieriparoleCome molte altre lettrici (e lettori!), pure io soccombo davanti agli uomini in kilt. Qui ce ne sono ben due, entrambi favolosi, e ci danno dentro come non mai Quindi lascio intuire come la mia lettura sia stata più che soddisfacente: Sam ha il fascino del ragazzo-avventuriero, gay dichiarato, ma comunque vincolato dagli obblighi familiari (e con un padre molto pressante; Declan ha invece dalla sua il fascino dell'uomo maturo e dell'essere uno scozzese puro, con devastanti [...]


    • 3.5 starsA story with many faces.It starts with Declan and Sam as two best men. They never met before and email was their only contact and they like each other very much. But when they meet they both don't know who the other is. And their first contact isn't going well.Declan is older and straight (his words) Sam the younger one and gay, both strong and demanding.After they know who they are it's getting better and better.When they start kissing and spending all the time they have together it's [...]


    • già dal titolo si intuisce il filo conduttore del libro è cioè un omaggio al bellissimo film La storia fantastica,devo confessare uno dei miei preferiti vena simpatica,romantica e divertente è confermata in questo 1 capitolo della serie,unito ad una vena sexy e avventurosa che non vedo l'ora di seguire nei prossimi libri


    • I received a copy of this title to read and review for Wicked Reads 4 stars. If you're a Princess Bride fan, undoubtedly you get the gravity of the title. Declan and Sam are the best men at their siblings wedding, after spending a year emailing one another before they met in person. Now I could go into great detail, but I won't spoil the story. Charming. Witty. Endearing. Funny. Sweet yet smoking hot. I was thoroughly entertained, while wearing a smile on my face, from page one until the end. Th [...]


    • LA RECENSIONE COMPLETA SUL BLOG: thereadingslove/2 Alcuni incontri sono destinati a concludersi, altri invece sono destinati a diventare un per sempre. Ciò che mi ha spinto di leggere questa storia è che si sarebbe parlato della Scozia, una terra bellissima e particolare con luoghi inconfondibili. Il secondo motivo riguarda i personaggi che avrebbero indossato il kilt, l'abito tradizionale scozzese e infine il terzo perché ero molto curiosa sulla relazione che avrebbero avuto questi due perso [...]


    • Originally posted on mikkysworldofbooksLet me start by stating that Isobel Starling is a huge tease.Now we can proceed to the review. LOLSam and Declan have to stand as best men to their siblings’ wedding and they have to share every duty the title involves. One problem –those two never met in person and, while they liked each other well enough while emailing back and forth, that can’t be said for the moment they literally bump into each other.Sam is funny, extremely intelligent, easygoing [...]


    • 3.5There is something about a man in a kilt. Hmmm, yes there is. Honestly, I think there is something about a man in just about any traditional costume. It seems to push the same buttons as a man in a well-tailored suit. Yum. So the very premise of this story ticked a couple boxes for me. And believe me, if kilts tickle your fancy, you need this book. There are some scenesIt also has two cute, likable leads. I enjoyed them and their irritation, embarrassment and eventual working out of differenc [...]


    • ~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~What a delicious, sensual and erotic tale. Two men brought together due to joint best man duties discover an unexpected attraction. Some of the scenes which are fundamentally innocent are so erotic that I had to remember to breathe. I loved the film quotes, the ease with which they recognise the attraction; delicious. The ending is cunning and I really do hope that Ms Starling gives us more of this couple's journey.


    • Not deep, not poetic, but does exactly what it's mean to do, which was to entertain. Other reviews have waxed lyrically about the feasibility of the GFY storyline and the depiction of 'nasty' women, but this isn't a social commentary, its entertainment, and Isobel Starling has done a good job with this. If you want a quick fun, hot read, with added silly underwear, in-jokes and not to mention kilts, I recommend this one. Not sure about the surprise ending regarding job descriptions, but I suppos [...]


    • The photo for this prompt was great and I was looking forward to reading this story. Only, after finishing it I have to say, it was a let-down. The whole thing meandered along without any ups and downs. It was so much telling, not enough showing. For me there was no chemistry between both MCs, especially in the light of the GFY aspect. The final couple of chapters and especially the epilogue came out of left field and didn't work for me at all. I think, this author's writing is not for me.Sorry, [...]


    • I had read book 2 earlier on in the year and thought that I had missed out on something by not reading book 1.This is the story of Sam and Declan who are the 2 Best Men at the wedding of a brother and a sister.Sam is out but Declan identifies as straight until Sam sets his heart a flutter.The story takes place over a week or so surrounding the wedding where the guys get to know each other and then one morning Sam is whisked away on assignment.


    • Not what I expected.I have problems with the dialogues, to many exclamation mark in the dialogue sentences Too many telling And Declan's accent annoyed me a lot.Still going to read the second book though.
