HASH(0x9b8aa060) von 5 Sternen 3.5*. A bit confusing in terms of was this a historical tale, or a steampunk one? The latter, actually. 16. Juli 2014
Von Roroblu'sMum - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
LA Witt is an autobuy, and in terms of story-telling the tale was decent, as were the leads; that's the bit that goes without saying.

However, I found myself confused and distracted, as I'd thought from the blurb, that I was getting a historical tale set during the Klondike gold rush - full stop - not one in a steampunk setting that had me focusing on the 'mech', which sounded like the giant mechanical spider in the Will Smith film, Wild Wild West, rather than anything else. I can't complain about the execution of the tale, but for me, the romance took a back seat, and the sex was...not sexy. Reading it, I found myself thinking that a straight male reader into things historical or mechanical would probably enjoy the tale more than a female reader, the sexual aspect was that understated/underplayed. However, that's not a criticism of the tale, as the story line, era and setting were not conducive to romance, only to more basic human needs.

Personally, for me, as a female reader of MM novels, the romance aspect has to be the most impacting factor, which got lost here in the steampunk elements and with the invention that became the mainstay of the tale, and that had so many people wanting it. The sex, mainly set on the trail, was un-sexy, frankly....I found myself thinking of how they'd be able to sanitise things, whether what I was reading was practical and logical, given the circumstances, and what attraction there actually was between the leads, other than that both had had an education.

I can't say that I loved it, though I did appreciate the story-telling; however, I won't be picking up the follow-up tale, due out in 09/2014.

HASH(0x9b8aa1b0) von 5 Sternen Fun Steampunk/Alternative History M/M Romance 17. Dezember 2012
Von T. Gray - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
A very enjoyable m/m alternative history/steampunk adventure romance novella about two men journeying from Seattle to Alaska as part of the Klondike gold rush.

I liked both MCs and it was fun to read about their developing relationship, a bond built on sex first, intimacy and trust later. Most of the POV comes from Robert, a prostitute living in Seattle who dreams of getting out and striking it rich in the gold rush. He gets his wish by teaming up to assist a new client--John, a scientist/engineer from Chicago who is traveling to Alaska on a quest to find some specific metals. They begin the long trek north and along the way, learn more about each other, as well as discover that there are some shady characters on their trail.

It's not super steampunk-y, but mostly you see the genre in the vehicles and spider-y robot contraptions that assist the miners in carrying things up the trail.

Witt lived in Seattle before (where I live now) and I appreciated the setting details she included since it really was the starting point for a lot of Gold Rush miners. That was neat historical detail to read.

Overall a fun and very enjoyable book. It's a novella, a little over 90 pages, so a pretty fast read as well, but even though I could have always taken in more since I liked both the characters and story, the author wrapped it up well, and I wasn't left wanting. Recommended in you're looking for something more fantastical with your m/m adventure romance.
HASH(0x9b8aa120) von 5 Sternen Never Engaged Me 9. Juli 2014
Von Talvi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Noble Metals is a steampunk romance set in the backdrop of the Klondike gold rush. The steampunk elements are downplayed in favor of the M/M romance aspects and the ending is a bit rushed. But problematic for me was a slew of very flat or shallow characters who failed to engage me in their adventure.

Story: Robert came to Seattle to strike a gold claim with his brothers. But days of debauchery and gambling whittled their funds away until they were destitute. Desperate, Robert takes up prostitution to make money to once again attempt the Klondike trek. He meets a scientist, John, he pays him for a night in a room. Robert offers to take John up the Klondike so John can use his special machine to detect platinum amongst the gold deposits. But the two are followed by others who want to use the machine for their own goals. Protecting the machine, making the dangerous journey up to Dawson City, and not succumbing to a mutual attraction will take all their will and strength.

Both Robert and John talk similarly and I had a hard time distinguishing a Chicago scientist from a Montana rancher. It meant I never had a good feel on either character and therefore didn't understand their attraction, which felt a bit too insta-love. All the people (a complete male cast) were pretty shallow or one dimensional. As such, there was nothing original or unexpected in any of the actions.

But most problematic for me was the logic and believability of the plot. For one, in a lawless town like Seattle at that time, why bother threatening Robert to steal John's device when the bad guys could have just waltzed in at any time and done it themselves? It was hard to take any of the villains seriously after that, especially after Robert was threatened twice in places where someone just had to conk a sleeping professor over the head and take the machine. As well, the idea of a male/male prostitute, even in an alternate universe as with steampunk, really didn't ring true. Worse, Robert suddenly deciding he could be a male prostitute to service male miners, without having had any experience or desire in that direction in the past, also was off-putting. There were no emotional repercussions to his situation and he shrugged it off that it was preparing him for John.

I ended up skimming through a lot of the book. I didn't feel a sense of imminent danger or adventure at any time through the story. I didn't feel connected or engaged as a result and just ended up hurrying to finish it.

It is by no means a terrible book but I also feel it really lacks sophistication and depth. It is a light and airy read but I honestly prefer to spend my time with a book that has a more mature plot and characterization.

Reviewed from an ARC.
HASH(0x9b8aa018) von 5 Sternen Fantastic Klondike Gold Rush Adventure Romance 6. Juli 2014
Von Sophia Rose - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The Klondike Gold Rush just seems an addictive historical setting for me and I pay attention to little else about the story when I grab up books involving it. Fortunately, this one also offers a go-to author, a delicate romance, an exciting adventure and a bit of steampunk dynamics to make it a rousing read.

The story opens when scientist and inventor, John Fauth, arrives in Seattle as the jumping off point for his mystery-laden journey into the Yukon after something more than gold. He meets prostitute, Robert Belton, who wishes to journey into gold country more than anything. Robert can never go home again after what he has done to survive and save a bit of money for the gamble of a lifetime.

John and Robert spend a night getting intimately acquainted before John agrees to take Robert on as a helper and traveling companion to help steer the mech that will carry their goods up the pass and helping him with the hardships of the journey and doing the digging in gold country. John tells Robert that what they had together must stay secret and then he pulls away and doesn't touch Robert like that again. They become friends through their time together and the long hard miles they journey.

The journey and natural danger are just part of what keeps them alert. Others are on their trail seeking to steal what John has invented to help him find the noble metal he needs for his invention in progress. Robert's past is also something that gives them reason to worry as some recognize him for what he was. In the end, both must decide what is truly important and what they can live without.

I've always enjoyed the 'journey to discovery' style romance and character-driven plot lines that include a physical journey as well as a journey of the heart. The adventure, the steampunk gadgetry and historical backdrop of this story are written well so that the reader gets a true taste of the hardships and what barriers the characters must pit themselves against to gain their goals. It was balanced well with the character development and romance. This story had a unique way of these guys sharing their thoughts. Robert narrated first person and John's narration came in the form of journal entries.

Robert made some big mistakes and he paid for them and now he's just hoping that his gamble will give him a new start in life. He also has come to know John and tries to put off thinking of the inevitable separation when they finish what they set out to do. John will return to Chicago and his academic scientific world that has no room for Robert to be more than a secret. Robert isn't the only one who yearns and has no idea how to achieve a contented happiness. John wants to succeed with his inventions to prove himself, but now he is starting to care about Robert too.

The romance is sweeter more than hot passion. It develops slowly as these two men become traveling companions and share both the tedious, grueling travel and the danger together. It forges something strong between them. Robert worries that John only brought him along to use him, but then he worries that John will never see him as more than a traveling companion. The slow to build romance takes up the whole book and it really worked best that way. I loved it and it was all the more triumphant and deeper when they finally did come together.

In the end, I was captivated and wanted more. I was smiling from ear to ear when I read the epilogue which was a nice touch. Lovers of m/m historical romance adventure should try this one.

My thanks to Riptide Publishing for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for my honest review.

4 Hearts from MM Good Book Reviews

Robert is working as a whore after losing his money gambling, when a handsome customer admits that he is looking for men to help him on his journey Robert jumps at the chance to get to Dawson City even offering to take half-pay. John is desperate for his invention to come through for him, but first he has to slog through the trail to Dawson City in the biting cold while avoiding the men who have been tailing him and letting no one know about his invention.

I enjoyed this story for its simplicity, for its combining of fact and fiction, for the hot sex and the gentle love. Robert has never known the touch of a man when he wasn’t paid for it, when John walks into the saloon and into his bed it’s the first time that he has genuinely wanted a man and would gladly have paid John for the pleasure. John just needs someone to help him with his equipment so when Robert offers for to work for him for half the wages he jumps at the chance and on the journey fraught with danger he comes to trust and love the former whore.

This is a story that takes you on a journey, it’s about trust, it’s about love, it’s about hopes and dreams as these two men struggle to survive against the elements and against those who want the invention. This story is from both POV while Robert’s is done in a normal prospective John’s is mainly through his journal, you can see how these men become closer and although there is some hot sex the circumstances don’t allow for it to be prolific, so a lot of the time they spend together is for warmth and talking is the main activity.

So in all truth… if you love hot sex, danger, mystery, a journey of natural danger, thieves, threats and a happy ever after with some great steampunk then this is the book for you.
