Any books that deal with addiction (alcohol or drugs)?
>>
>>3706391
MacGregor's Shaken series, the 2nd book is all about alcoholism.

... aaaand I've just now noticed there's a fifth novel in the series I haven't read. Hum. Might give it a try. I guess.
>>
Did anyone here read In Blood and Duty Bound by Erin S. Bales ?

It has great reviews and is tagged as ff on mobilism but I can't find anywhere if it is really /u/ or not.
>>
>>3706913
You've won the lottery today, because I went and read this novel for the precise purpose of answering
>but I can't find anywhere if it is really /u/ or not.
this question.

... okay, except I didn't like it so I just skimmed most of it and as far as I got the answer was more than dubious. So don't actually go do any gambling.

Here's as far as I found: the main heroine (the princess) has a huge crush on a prince she's betrothed to. The guard woman could possibly be gay or not; I didn't spot anything. The third "heroine" is evil so whatever - but there seems to be something going on with a political rival of hers, kinda unclear what though (like a scandalous lesbian affair? Possibly).

Now ... we all know that "starts with a male love interest" doesn't really mean anything. What muddles the waters is that the heroine's sister is definitely gay and in a relationship with a priestess, so that might be the reason it's LGBT/FF everywhere. However, they are minor side characters, so hardly qualify for making it a FF novel. In the end, the princess is escaping together with the bodyguard-type woman so it could be a setup for the classic princess-bodyguard stuff in book 2.

As to why I didn't like it - it's a quite interesting setting, and decently written.There's some good stuff going on (there's a visceral scene early one that was, uff, great in an awful way), so far from a "by default" bad novel. But given that you got an antagonist POV you know IMMEDIATELY what's going on. Like, right as everything kicks off. And then you sit there waiting for the book to finish when you already know exactly "these are the bad guy, do something for fucks sake!" I can't stand that. And, okay, also because I couldn't figure out whether I should hope for some gay or not.

So Kindle has that feature where you can see underlines on the most commonly highlighted passages in a book. I just find it funny to think about multiple people making highlights and annotations on a smutty FF romance novel like they're writing a book report.

I know "My White Dhalia" by C.M. Blackwood the main character is secretly an opiate addict but the plot/writing isn't good enough for me to recommend reading it with how dark and edgy it gets at points.

Karis Walsh - With a Minor in Murder
A little murder mystery. City copy quits her job to start as a college cop (gotta love those weirdo US organizations), when, of course, some professor gets murdered. She then somewhat teams up with a different professor (living) to solve the case.

The characters are quite okay and there's some decent banter. There's a little bit of typical lesbian story-issues; like the cop is dyslexic and she's afraid that people in the academic world will think she's stupid because of it. Or the whole "big city cop to community college" thing. But nothing in any depth or to any level of preachiness.

The murder case is also quite simplistic; it does have a bit of a twist but you can't really "puzzle along", there isn't anything much in terms of serious police procedural, and the finale is just a fairly generic "murder now wants to murder the protagonists so they run into them and fight it out" thing; not any sort of "we've figured out the culprit!"

Romance is kinda similar; there isn't much meat to it. It's okay, again, the characters are nice and the interaction is good. But no real interesting developments or revelations; a tiny bit of the traditional 70%-relationship-interruption but it's so perfunctory you barely even notice.

Kinda okay book if you just want a shallow quick read that doesn't do anything too annoying but also doesn't really deliver anything too great.

KG MacGregor - Words Unsaid
Book 5 of the Shaken series. How long has it been since I read any sort of new generic contemporary lesbian romance? Hm, can't say exactly. Just feel generally kinda tired of the same stuff over and over again ...

But given that this one is part of a series it avoids most of the typical tropes; the heroines have long since married, there's zero relationship issues. Instead it's about their growing up kids, how their own parents get older, how some people have died (I think there's a 10 year or so timeskip to the previous book), a bit about the business one of the heroines is running (I forgot she's into BMWs - and I happened to read the book on a walk by the stupid BMW Cylinder Tower), those sort of things.

I can happily report that it doesn't ruin the series or does anything stupid like that. However, it's also not exactly the most interesting novel. I thought it was pretty obvious as soon as Trump came up (the gift that keeps on giving) - together with some other facts - that it'd be about ICE, and it was. Problem with that as a plot is, I feel anyway, that their entire organization (or at least what the story focused on) is just almost comically evil, there's nothing interesting you can do with it. It's fucked up and, okay, fucked up things can make a story, but there's nothing really beyond "fucked up things are fucked up".

But okay. Wasn't bad or anything, just not great.

The ending/epilogue felt a bit cheesy; and some of the things are just "eeeh" to me. There's always that level of disconnect when talking about US-style child upbringing that kinda makes me want to shake my head.

Anyway; made want go look for some other contemporary novels that aren't mysteries/UF/anything of that sort. But probably non-US based, which makes things difficult, but, gotta be something somewhere ...

The Devil Wears Tartan - Katia Rose

Two lifelong rivals in Highland dancing, Moira and Kenzie, compete in a series of competitions and community service events for a huge scholarship as a sort of "final showdown" after missing their chance to face each other in a Championship match due to an injury.

The problem with most "enemies to lovers" stories is that there's not really enough "enemies", and this book isn't much different. They are vaguely "enemies" for like the first third then it just devolves into the typical sort of romance drama. The competition aspect gets pushed away in favor of drama mostly involving Kenzie and her clinically depressed mother, and the typical sort of "Can I allow myself to be loved?" stuff that you've seen a million times before.

The writing is fine, and the romance is decent. It is written in alternating first-person, which a lot of people don't like. The backdrop of Highland dancing competion is neat, but the author doesn't really go into the autistic detail that would be necessary to make this book stand out. There's some light virtue signaling, but it doesn't really beat you over the head with the author's viewpoints.

Overall, it was not bad. Certainly not the worst thing I read, but it's not at the top of my recommendations list.

I want a unicorn: A decently written fantasy series with quality action that also doesn't shy away from sex scenes. It is a huge pet peeve of mine when authors shy away from sex because they don't want to/don't know how to write it, so they just go "and Trisha took her clothes off" end of chapter, or whatever. Even GRRM did two finger-bang scenes, come on.

Because I'm sexually attracted to women, but not romantically. The idea of being in a romantic or sexual relationship with a woman is repulsive, I would rather die, but I love seeing women having a happy romance with each other. Lesbians are the true inheritors of Earth.
Men should all go sterile and die off.

That's why I was asking. Romance I can understand, feelings are universal, but smut is inherently tied to gender.

Being a contrarian faggot isn't a personality either. If what they're asking for isn't to your taste it's much easier to just not reply, after all your reply isn't what they're looking for, which is a recommendation.

>>3709979
Not that anon, but I don't read smut. I read lesbian literature because there are dynamics at play, that as a straight guy I can never really be privy to.
That and I got really tired of reading about male MCs, specifically in fantasy genres.

The part about not reading smut is only a half-truth. I have unconventional tastes and the only way to satisfy that itch is to write my own. A sex scene in a lesbian novel is more annoyance than anything, since too many are poorly written and most don't go close to what I like. Ultimately though, I'm not here for the smut.

>>
>>3712007
Yeah, even as a teenager I realized WoT was pretty cringy. And I didn't exactly move on to the height of literary sophistication (it was basically GRRM and obscure fantasy stuff). But yeah, the female characters in WoT are mostly just really badly written. Both in terms of character development and plot, and just like how they are portrayed through the prose.

Onee-chan may I recommend something. "Retribution Engine" by Akaso on scribblehub has got some real quality action. It also has sex scenes, I can't vouch for their quality though as I skip sex scenes most of the time. (Sue me, I'm here for dirty stuff like feelings and hand holding.) Also the general quality of the writing is way beyond what you'd expect for a web novel

If by "conservative" you mean it was written by someone who was not a democrat, then yeah, but I feel it made shots at many positions in at least the american political system.
