    One thought on “Gaven”

    1. hey, you know what would be hot the facerape of a 17yo with a broken arm, in the most overripe and repetitive language possible.a true one handed read unfortunately, the other hand isn t on my dick it s holding up my middle finger.

    2. I really enjoyed reading this short story I have to point out that as others have already mentioned, Gaven 1 is not a complete story and can not stand alone As a separate novel, the story ends abruptly and there is not much development when it comes to romance Gaven 1 is simply a great intense beginning to a great fantasy story Gaven is a kind gentle soul who has been mistreated all his life His life crumbles again and again during this story and he is hurt, confused and lost Add identity crisis [...]

    3. I didn t like this book, but I feel like it would be unfair to give it less than 3 stars because most of the issues I had with it come from my personal preferences From an objective standard it was very well done in terms of pace and story I don t like fantasy, especially high fantasy, but this was a reading challenge so fantasy it had to be.The book is well written, although sometimes OVER written Yes, I know in fantasy prose has a certain style, but when it gets to the point where the sentence [...]

    4. While the writing is good but I just can t shake the feeling that the romance is not strong enough There are too many questions in Gaven s mind, that I cannot believe that in the end, he will just accept his fate It just doesn t make any sense to me.

    5. Reasonably good writing, poor plotting throughout book 1 and 2 book 1 contains only the first chapters of the complete book really My expectations these days are not that high, so maybe that s why this book was a pleasant surprise The writing was decent and had that typical fantasy vibe The plot followed an all too predictable road, but the promising developments between the MCs were addictive enough to keep reading I do think Owens could ve used a better beta or maybe just any beta to help with [...]

    6. If I didn t know there was a sequel out there I would be so pissed right now This book is really just an introduction to a world and a crazy convoluted messed up situation It does end at an understandable place in Gaven s journey, but really it s just the start of his story.Gaven s had his world turned upside down and smashed all to pieces in a few minutes of destruction The Masarians have long been the enemy of his people and now they have destroyed everyone that Gaven s ever known in their att [...]

    7. LOVED the universe J.C Owens created for this little book, but overall, the narrative left me cold The entire concept, that a boy man who had been raised in an enemy land, never knowing who his true people were, was wonderful The idea that, in a warrior society, men have lasting, sexual and loving relationships was fabulous The concept of an older wise male training a younger one made for a terrific plot line, as well That said, I had a hard time with this book and its sequel First, the two book [...]

    8. rounded up to This was an interesting and well portrayed concept that was, unfortunately too short for true satisfaction so many elements of this story were left undeveloped I know it s a series but I got the distinct impression that this short story had been artificially truncated and should have been marketed as a full length novel rather than a series of short stories.Gaven was a complex character who wasn t fully developed either I spent most of my time whilst reading this book wanting to im [...]

    9. 2 starsI really expected to like this better because these days I m interested in dub con Alas, I ended up feeling a bit frustrated with it but these are probably based on my own preferences than the book itself I liked the premise, and I thought that the fantasy was setting up to be rather interesting However, the world building was minimal I thought that the society of the Masarians was set up to suit the story, that when looked at from the outside, didn t really hold up Once again, if the wo [...]

    10. I like this story We are introduced to a hurt Gaven who has been raised as a peasant almost and finds out he is than that He was destined for than just the pittance his lord gave him He learns his entire life was a lie at the tender age of seventeen He finds out the tribe group Masarians, the enemies he was told to despise is actually his people And get this, he s the son of their warlord, Gareth Vlar, the second in command who scares Gaven also wants tote with him too, become his lover, master [...]

    11. The pacing felt off in this book Some things took forever to happen and others speed on by There seemed to be no rhyme or reason to this and many important things that needed to be expanded upon weren t I did think that the world and characters were interesting but a little detail would ve been nice We spent a lot of time with Gaven wallowing in self pity and not really getting development of the character beyond that I think this book had a lot of potential but it just wasn t fleshed out Over [...]

    12. I really need to give some time before I write anything about this book.I am overwhelmed right nowSIGHLong deep content but still craving of Gaven and Vlar.

    13. This beautifully written paranormal story focuses on the emotional journey of a young man coming of age during a violent and turbulent time While the tale has tremendous potential, the story ultimately failed to deliver on the world building and romance aspects It does deliver in the characterization of the main narrator, Gaven, and does so wonderfully with a depth of emotion rarely found Perhaps the author is setting this novella to be one of a series as the ending is barely a happy for now How [...]

    14. If you re looking for a romance story don t read this I knew from the start not to expect much of a love story in this and although I definitely prefer my m m books with a strong romantic plot this worked amazingly well for me It is, quite simply, a great story of a youth s coming into his own when ripped from all he had known and thrown into a whole new life and culture, shocking revelations and challenges included The story kept me on the edge of my seat because I couldn t wait to read what wo [...]

    15. Medieval fantasy is really not my thing, so why do I seem to own so many that sit in my TBR file forever Gaven is captured by the invading army that destroyed his keep Seems that Gaven was not who he thought but is the son of the commander of the invading army In their culture young recruits are given to an older solder for training if you know what I mean Seems he s to be given to Vlar some kind of blood drinking creature Gaven is freaked as being gay was baaaad in his culture and he really can [...]

    16. I really wanted to like this book From the blurb and the sample, it seemed like it would be a good read Unfortunately, there were some things that didn t sit well with me Pros I did like the explanation of why the Masarian soldiers had male partners but, obviously, they strayed from that premise because Gaven was born I think the author did a good job of expressing Gaven s uneasy feelings of his sexual preference for men I liked Ander, at least he explained things to Gaven and the reader.Cons Th [...]

    17. I was forced to slash a star for two reasons since this was a solid 4 for me.I can t pinpoint why, but this story felt like a couple of chapters for the next book than an actual independent work Maybe it s because nothing was truly resolved yeah yeah book two blah blah or the abrupt ending Cute as it was, I was left with a giant That s it I m not a big fan of first person POV, and it didn t curb my enjoyment here Alas, Gaven has a running commentary of every aspect of his life, pondering and wo [...]

    18. I read this book for the M M Bingo challenge and I was glad I picked it back up I had started reading it before but just couldn t get into it at the time.It is told in 1st person, which I typically don t like because you don t get a good enough feel for the other characters However, this one didn t bother me because I really liked Gaven Unlike other first person stories, this really is Gaven s tale and about what he goes through as a person learning his way around people he once thought were the [...]

    19. Quite excited to be starting this book, that s been on my to read shelf for a while.I know J.C Owens is a good author, and this has some great reviews, so yes, I m excited before I start.Right, finished it quite quickly, as it s a novella or short novel And as I suspected I might, I really really enjoyed it This sort of plotline is right up my alley, and no mistake You can tell what it s about from the blurb and other reviews, so I m not going to rehash it here.The book finishes quite abruptly, [...]

    20. I really liked this book but it cut off at the end like the book was half finished and it seems I was right The second book is really the other half of this book and this has really pissed me off Why not put the two books together to make a longer complete book and charge a little for the one book If it was one complete story I would have given this a definate 4 stars, the charectors were strong and the plot line interesting Loved the world building and there are some strong supporting charecto [...]

    21. This book didn t sit very well with me I think it s because it was so short that the development of things seemed to border on Stockholm syndrome at best and rapey at worst I mean Gaven was young, vulnerable, alone, with a shakey grasp on his sexuality and he basically had to have sex with a guy he barely knew in order to gain acceptance and family I mean I ve quite liked some questionable consent books, but only ones with enough length for the story to develop and when he character has emotion [...]

    22. An interesting start to a story Gaven gets into some difficult situations, but this short story barely gets into the plot before it ends it doesn t feel complete Gareth, Gaven s father seems like an interesting character, but we don t really get to know him, get past his prickly exterior Gaven s past is referenced many times, but never really explored We don t have a very good understanding of what Vlar is You can have a great 80 page book, but this just doesn t put enough details in to be great [...]

    23. When start the first in a series, I anticipate there will be a lot of character development that will get played out in later volumes That is definitely the case with this book At the same time there is enough action, depth to the story, and back story to keep me reading and wanting I can definitely recommend this book, especially in light of having started the next volume and finding it all the interesting having this base.Also, the plot and story line are very unique and speak to some histor [...]

    24. BDSM and man loving all wrapped up in a clash of two cultures.I was hesitant to read this but it turned out to be quite enjoyable Gaven is kind of a whiny bitch but I like him and he submits beautifully.No closure in this book so you ll need to read the next book, I think.

    25. Entertaining little fantasy m m read As we reached the height of the pass, I drew my horse to a halt and stared back down at the panorama below, the land to which I had been born It was a moment in time forward was into the unknown, backwards lay pain but familiar pain.

    26. This is a great story and i want to read the series We don t know verymuch the world and i have questions but i think in the futur book i have the answers The story is attactive

    27. I really enjoyed this book and the series is off to a great start I loved the developing relationship between Gaven and Vlar and can t wait to dive into the next one.

    28. 4.5 starsGaven surprised me I found myself very riveted to the problems Gaven found himself in and the people surrounding him I was thoroughly sucked into the story almost like a kid turning the pages of Huckleberry Finn to see how he was going to handle the next problem Gaven himself is a young man snubbed by society all his life who finds himself welcomed into the arms of the enemy as a celebrated lord and high ranking son He also finds that this army has a man love philosophy that encourages, [...]

    29. Wounded in body and spirit, alone, lost on a battlefield, taken captive, forced to acknowledge that he has feelings that can no longer be pushed down or called perverted or bad, Gaven stands on the cusp of a life that is so foreign to him yet one which he was literally born to embrace Given to be both cared for and trained by to a man who was not quite humanGaven after many attempts at escape, accepts his fate, accepts his mating to Vlar and submits to the ritualistic bonding with surprising res [...]
