read that I really really enjoyed but I m not really sure was up to a 4 star read 3.75 stars Rounded up to 4 with this system.This book is made up of three interrelated stores about three interrelated couples The book is fun and sweet no sex and would be a great way to introduce someone who loves stories set in the time of knights and quests to the m m genre.The title is very appropriate In each of the stories, the two MCs really have been always there in the others life, but it is now they are realizing the love that is there also The first story is about two old friends Knights who have actually been together for years and are an old married couple, even if they haven t realized it yet It takes a quest to rescue a damsel in distress and the resulting separation for the clue to dawn The second story two young men who having basically grown up together in the castle, each thinks their love for the other is hopeless Oh you clueless, clueless boys I never knew whether to smack them or to pat them on the head.The third story two nearby dukes and ancient enemies whose family s feud drove story plot 2 are sent on their own quest to solve a mystery and to fix things Only two minor quibbles There are a few instances of missing words, and I think that the POV changes should have been externally marked with or the book equivalent But it was fairly easy to figure out and didn t bother me overmuch A lovely little book Good for a rainy day inside or when you re in the mood for warm smiles #Pdf Ç Always There í Tales of knights bound by duty, honor, and each other Always There

are ordered to a remote monastery to unravel a mystery, and finally overcome the problems keeping them apartNote this story is a reprint Sometimes when I look at what other reviewers have written about a book I wonder did they read a different book than I did In this case, when I look at some of the great reviews of this book I m starting to wonder is there another book called Always There , maybe even by another Megan Derr To me, this book was Just So Booooooring I would never have finished it if it wasn t for that I read it for the Bingo challenge and that I couldn t find another book to switch to in the specified Sometimes when I look at what other reviewers have written about a book I wonder did they read a different book than I did In this case, when I look at some of the great

wasn t for that I read it for the Bingo challenge and that I couldn t find another book to switch to in the specified category.The book consists of three stories with different MCs, but they are connected, each new couple have been introduced in the previous story, and they take place in the same world This is a world much like medieval England, I d say, minus any hint of homophobia, it s apparently perfectly alright for men to have romantic feelings for each other and or become lovers The latter part of those, the actual lovers thing, isn t really part of this book.Instead, in the first part, two guys who s know each other for ages, have to part and then realize that they actually miss each other so when they re reunited they re apparently in love in lust in the mood for a romp in they hay , whatever It s a complete mystery to me as a reader how they came to this realization, somehow they just know But to me it read like an old married couple where the husband didn t realize he actually liked his wife untill she went away on holliday for a couple of weeksThe second story is about two youngish boys who s know each other for years they meet for the first time in the first story and they are both infatuated by the other but doesn t understand that it s reciprocated Well, it is, and they get their luke warm HEA after annoying me with their is he or isn t he until I wanted to travel into their world and give them both an earful of stop wasting my valuable reading time and try to actually communicate with each other.By the third story I admitt that I was already so not in the mood for yet another of these stories, but since it s a challenge The third story was about two men who had grown up in families that had been feuding with each other for ages, but then they re sent to a remote place to solve a mystery and guess what They find out they don t have to be enemies just because they were raised to hate each other, no they can actually like each other And that was about that.Now, to the author s defence maybe this book wasn t written as a romance novel at all I just assumed that it was, and therefore read it expecting some romance and when I didn t find any, I was disappointed But as far as I know Ms Derr might have written this as a YA adventure story, and if read as such, it might beinteresting To those who like reading stuff like that.Another thing that put a damper on the reaing enjoyment for me was the strange language Ms Derr used They kept speaking in what I assume was some kind of medieval English, and for me, who is a non native English speaker, that was hard to follow and made the reading slower that it otherwise might have been.The book also seemed badly edited Sometimes there was just a sudden skip a few weeks forward between one paragraph and the next, and it took a while to get Oh Okay, so this is several weeks after what I just read There was also some skipping between places and POV that was too sudden and quite confusing But this might also not be Ms Derr s fault, I ve never written a book so I m not sure if stuff like that should be fixed by an editor, or something.Anyway, I can t actually think of a single person that I would recommend this book to If I absolutely had to recommend it to someone I guess it would be to a teenager with a firm grasp of medieval English language and if it turns out that there actually is another book by the same name, written by an author who also happens to have the same name, and that it s that book that some of the other reviewers have read, please let me know so I can read that one This book was really sweet It consists of three short stories, with each a different set of MCs, of which the first one I really wished was longer There is no sex in the stories, just some really sweet loving It was nicely written, however I had some difficulties adjusting to the old english style of writing, but that s just personal Always There A rather different way to tell a love story lol.Rather than spend tome with Lyon and Chastaine together we see them slowly realise their feelings after being separated A unusual way that worked nicely for me.Not sure I quite understood the entire Kings plot lol But I loved the story especially meeting young Kodey, a highlight for me 3.5 stars Tournament While I would of enjoyed seeing a littleof the young Kodey, watching him as he reached his 18 year was sweet enough Always There A rather different way to tell a love story lol.Rather than spend tome with Lyon and Chastaine together we see them slowly realise

was oblivious is just the kind of story I love The added mystery of the Duke of Lons, and Duke de Capre gave this an interesting twist Too short but other wise perfect for me 4 stars Vow Unto Me While I m slightly puzzled as to why indeed Yvain loved Corentin so deeply, I thoroughly enjoyed watching Corentin struggle and at the end was very happy to see him given another chance.Nice little mystery with a climatic ending didn t hurt the story either 3.5 stars SOLID 4.5 stars one of my absolute favourites by this author really enjoyed her knights portrayal This review has been hidden because it

from being friends to kissing before the whole crowd The romance development was somewhat lacking Tournament was as cute as Kodey is The fiery redhead went overboard a few times though, snapping at Kodey for no other reason than his own insecurities Seriously, that was like kicking a puppy that came to you wagging his tail I liked ho Not as good as I hoped it to be, though not bad either Always

The plot was good, the romance angsty I positively adored Yvain It was Corentin I couldn t exactly like Overthinking everything, brooding, not having the balls to set things straight with Yvain I was like dude, you have this great, noble and humble man in love with you and you re hesitating And the worst of it is that he s hesitating basically till the last sentences of the book The kiss on the

from the Grand Duke forced the two persons together and worked on their differences The stories are related, where supporting characters from the previous story become the main characters in the next one Megan Derr s books in general can be grouped into two the romantic one and the sexy one Her earlier works, like this one, have been mostly the romantic ones, where the romance dominates the book, and the sex scenes are almost non existent In the most recent ones, her stories containexplicit sex scenes While the romance is there, we feel that the books areadult or grown up This one is the former.In general, Derr creates a world where homosexuality is accepted Conflicts usually arise from the dynamic among the characters, not from homophobic situations found in most M M books As a result, she can focus on the romance side very well, which is evident in this book.The main characters are very likable The plots make sense The romances are sweet but will not give you toothache

embroiled in a game of intrigue between two feuding Dukes Brice must speed to his rescue I loved the way this story occurs a few years after Always There , but focuses on two new MCs Another cute story.Vow Unto Me 5 stars This was my favorite story of the three In Tournament we meet the Duke de Capre and the Duke of Lons who were raised embroiled in family feuding In this story, the Grand Duke has forced Yvain and Corentin to work together to aid some monks who are being threatened by brigands They must overcome years of family feuding, anger, and even guilt to solve this mystery I thought this was a very good plot and I really liked both the Dukes.Overall this was a 5 star anthology for me and Megan Derr remains my favorite M M fantasy author
