Redbird Fires

Redbird Fires - Madeleine Ribbon I've been sleeping with who?! *Face palm*Spectacularly awkward! Takes a good friendship to keep sailing through this one. Good job, Avery. Now, Bren on the other hand is a dick--to be fair, it is genetic. That boy started at a disadvantage and just kept digging the hole bigger every time he opened his mouth. Think...then speak, idiot! His rough start transitions albeit not perfectly, but I bought into it. Of course, the smoking hot, plein air sexual interlude was both creative and naughty enough to completely erase any higher brain functions. Gotta say that Michael uses those millennia of experience for good.There were so many places this story could have failed epically, but didn't. Successfully managed to make a fiery bird sexy, see the aforementioned sexcapade. Incorporated Ra without some jenky time warp device and he was cool. Seamlessly addressed past lives and loves without boring me to tears--actually, quite touching to be honest. Oh yeah, didn't play the heart-ripping out and martyr card for either Bren or Michael. One disappointment, we didn't get to see the toys in the bottom of Bren's drawer in action. Tease. Horrible...horrible tease. Someone deserves at the very least a timeout if not a spanking for that one.This one is for all readers who want a humorous and loving story and don't freak out at mythology or paranormal elements.Favorite quote:"I've been lusting after you since my fist became intimately acquainted with your nose." ~~ A copy was provided to me for a No Glitter Blown review~~Reviewed for Hearts On Fire Reviews
