    This could have been a very good book The idea behind it is good and there is some strong characterisation in parts Unfortunately the whole story has been sidelined by a series of long, boring and over written sex scenes They are not even good sex scenes As a result there are major lacuna in the overall story.

  5. Kilian Kilian says:

    So badly written, a perfect fairy tale, so unrealistic, I only continued to persist in the hope that there would be a twist, however small Even the sex scenes were over clinical, not exotic at all What a waste of good ink I had to give it a star, not my choice.

    Desert Heat by Lucy FelthouseNow I can see why everyone was begging Lucy for Poor Hugh All he wants is someone in his life but he is afraid for his career in the military because he is a gay man.You just don t know how your platoon is going to react so mum is the word Well never in his life did he plan on meeting someone during an assignment Rustam is his interpreter but that is not the only thing he will be to Hugh Lucy gets me all excited about this little relationship and then the story ends OMG how will they get along Do they really like each other So many questions I m so glad Native Tongue is out so I don t have to wait I am not a very patient person LOL If you can t tell, Yes I did like the story Native Tongue by Lucy FelthouseYeah so much better now I know what has happened between Hugh and Rustam Now that they are back on British soil they can find out where this relationship will go The one bad thing is that they have to keep it private because of Hugh These two have a great relationship and it is so sad that they can t come out in public and acknowledge their love for one another quite yet but once they do, oh man I did giggle a little when Hugh gets together with his family You are going to love his talk with his mom Priceless This was a perfect ending for Hugh and Rustam or is it You just never know what Lucy is going to do. I received this book as a gift from the author in return for an honest review.

    Two of my favourite books in one bundle SCORE Here are my reviews of both books Desert Heat Originally part of the Unconditional Surrender bundle this cracking wee story is being let loose on the world on it s own.Wilkes, A British Army officer on his final tour of Afghan finds himself falling for his native interpreter, Balkhi.Months of inappropriate thoughts on both sides lead into a stolen night of passion but can they continue seeing each other without alerting the other guys on camp to their love for each other A very well researched book and as per usual so beautifully written.Native Tongue In this follow up to Desert Heat we find that as the Brits have left Afghanistan, Hugh is back on Camp in Wiltshire and Rustam is finally finishing up his medical training in London.Due to circumstances beyond their control they have not seen each other for weeks and after spending months literally in each others pockets it is hard on them both.Finally, Hugh gets time off to go visit with Rustam but things are a wee bit awkward How do you go from sneaking around and hurried trysts to actually getting to know one another without constantly looking over your shoulder to see who is watching How can they finally become a real couple I am really pleased that Lucy has given us this follow up, it s like meeting up with old friends Native Tongue could be read as a Standalone but why deny yourself the pleasure of meeting the boys first hand in Desert Heat.I was lucky enough to be asked to Beta read this book and I cannot thank Lucy enough for the opportunity.

    I read Desert Heat months ago in the Brit Boys collection and I think I ve already written a review of it when it was release on its own.When this bundle came out I just had to buy it as I wanted to know about the characters and how their romance would develop.Native Tongue is the perfect ending.I would describe it as light and feelgood Not just a happy ending but happy throughout.Whilst they have some fingering out to make the relationship work and some difficult things to face nothing too terrible happens to our romantic couple in this book thank goodness Unlike some others I read You know the feeling, crying as you wait outside the school gates at 3.15 in the afternoon

    simple plot often repetative

  10. Jovan Jovan says:

    Although mentioned in the blurb, I guess for dramatic effect, the story doesn t actually deal much with any conflict their jobs, cultures or religions may cause In the first book, they don t get together until the end, and the second story picks up after their deployment together has ended, so Hugh really only has to do what he s been doing for years in regards to his career hiding his sexuality from his homophobic superiors so that obstacle doesn t really materialize Moreover, any cultural religious constraints don t really exist since living in London means Rustam does not have to deal with his family knowing.Even though the story isn t nearly as complex as the blurb implies, I appreciated Hugh s straightforwardness and honest communication, and this was an enjoyable, simple story about making a hidden affair into a real relationship

    I couldn t get into it They meet and pages of pages of sex fantasies I have to admit IDF there was little to no action aside from daydream fantasies no character development noted for me I gave up halfway thru I even tried audible version which I regret as it didn t improve the banal plot

    I only liked the story After reading the bio for these books I was expecting this couple to face barriers to their relationship but there wasn t really anything in their way So I was disappointed because I was wanting to read a book where the main characters fought to be together and I was really interested to see the challenges they would face being from different cultures but the book didn t live up to what I was expecting to read.
