Latakia - J.F.  Smith I couldn't actually finish this. I stopped at 60% or so. I liked the idea, the plot, but the whole thing is just horribly executed. I read m-m romance because I want to avoid the ridiculous overly emotional stupid doesn't-deserve-to-live characters, and this book features a typical example of such a looser. Not to mention the endless inner thoughts (if you are going to explain every single thought your protagonist has, write the fucking thing in the first person!), the "you should be proud of your son", the "it doesn't matter if you're straight/gay/bi, we're all human", the "religion doesn't matter", the EVERYTHING. Choose one goddamned moral dilemma and stick to it if you have to involve shit like that in your book, don't include them ALL!

This was just awful.
