Product description

Product Description

College senior Cory Long tracked his missing sister to the magical Moonlight Market to bring her home. Instead, he found a disorienting world of performers and hawkers, bizarre sights and sounds, and one very familiar showman, Sanderson Beets. Like a drowning man, he latched onto Sanderson, trusting him to navigate the twists and turns of the Market as unerringly as he had steered Cory to passion in their furtive trysts on campus.

But Sanderson was tired of being the quickie in the alley.

Sanderson Beets had escaped the Moonlight Market to attend college, hoping to settle into a normal life, maybe meet someone and fall in love. To obtain that new life he made a dangerous bargain. And when the sinister woman known as the Weaver of Dreams is involved, second chances always come with strings attached...and sacrifices. Sanderson’s debt has come due, and the only payment he has to offer is Cory, and their chance at a relationship.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great M/M story with a plot full of mystery. 8 September 2016
By Anna E. - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
A copy was provided to me by the ReadingAlley in exchange for an honest and unbias review.
Cory meets Sanderson and a LGBTQ meet up and they hook up in a closet afterwards.
Cory feels he can't have more then a quick hook up because of the weight of responsibility he feels to his sister and their dead parents. But it's obvious he wants more, but he fights himself consistently on it.
Sanderson wants to put roots down, he made a deal with the devil to get out of the circus lifestyle and go to college. He feels a connection with Cory and wants to pursue it, they hook up again, but Sanderson just starts to feel used.
But then Cory needs help finding his wayward sister, she's run off to the fair to join a troupe and Sanderson's there, helping out family when his debt is called in.
Will Sanderson help Cory find his sister, or will he just use him, like he felt used, to pay off his debt?

I really enjoyed this fast paced story. The majority of the story happens at the fair grounds, but we still learn about their pasts and hopes for the future.
Poe, the sister, even gets her voice heard. I really liked Cory and Sanderson. There was a bit of angst, and will they, won't they, and he wouldn't would he? There was quite a bit of mystery, and the reader not getting the whole picture, but I felt it was written will with enough clues to not make it hard to follow, and guess at what was happening.
Although I found the sex scenes sometimes strangely timed, they were hot and went to prove the boys really did want each other.
I liked all the supporting characters, I found they added to the story and mystery really well. I would happily recommend this book to anyone who like M/M romance with a little bit of angst, a plot full of mystery and two hot guys!
3.0 out of 5 stars Really strange, unsure what to make of it, but it was well-written and held my attention. Not sure I'd read more of this world. 3 September 2016

This is a well-written tale that has a side MM romance in it. I honestly can't begin to categorise the tale, as I don't think I quite understood what I was reading. I'm not sure if it's a contemp tale where the leads venture into an eerie, or whether it's a tale taking place in an eerie, otherworldly world.

All I know is that one lead was searching for his sister who'd been hurt in a car fire that had killed their parents, and he got offered assistance without knowing that his 'boyfriend' was selling him off for a rather strange form of payment for a debt. There was some sex in this, the kind you'd see in a contemp tale, but it wasn't really in keeping with the rest of the tale. The tale itself had a form of evil/malevolent circus like no other circus featuring in it, which added confusion.

The storyline itself wasn't deep and the tale isn't a Keeper.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great tale 25 August 2016

A copy was provided to me by the ReadingAlley in exchange for an honest and unbias review.

To elude a fight with his younger sister, Cory Long, decides to attend an on campus LGBTQ meet up. There he hooks up with Sanderson Beets, a member of the LGBTQ volunteer admin. A day or so later his sister runs away/abandons him leaving a note telling him she's leaving with the Moonlight Market. Cory goes in search. In the process he runs into Sanderson who volunteers to help him since he was once a member of a troupe that attended the event.

Sanderson has his own set of problems. His debt to a witch is called in. Sanderson has to find a lost soul and turn the individual over to the witch. Cory seems like the perfect candidate. Sanderson is totally gone on Cory but doesn't want to lose his much hard earned freedom. But the debt must be paid and the witch is determined to get her due.

This was such an intriguing story and I wasn't altogether sure what to expect. It had a bit of a Rumpelstiltskin feel to it and was such an easy read to try to breeze through if left uninterrupted. I enjoyed it immensely.

I like that the characters emotional state, wants and needs were well showcased in the story. It really allowed readers to better know the characters, their flaws and the norm for them.

At the start I hated Poe so much. I thought she was such a selfish little immature brat. The way she went about leaving Cory was horrible. It felt like a slap in the face and I felt she wronged Cory horridly by doing so. My irritation at her selfishness lessened the enjoyment of the story. I was extremely vexed when the story focused on her cowardly actions and her needs. She's nineteen no longer a kid who shouldn't think of her actions and the conquences.

Sanderson too was a bit like Poe. A bit selfish and willing to do anything so that he could live a happy life. But I was glad he saw the errors of his way and even tried to right it.

The romantic development was just right for the story. Cory and Sanderson only know each other for a few days (maybe four?) but it feels like longer. They get close while searching for Poe and learn a lot about each other and they just click.

That being said the reunion between siblings were bittersweet and brought tears to my eyes.
I was glad there was that closure and everyone found a new way.

4.0 out of 5 stars Letting go. 6 October 2016
By Edie O. - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I liked this book but I felt at loose ends about it. It was very "Alice Through the Looking Glass" at times. (Okay, MOST times.) I haven't read a Steampunk novel but if you can 'see' the characters with high boots, corsets, lot of lace [women] and wool trousers with braces [men], then I believe I have just read a steampunk novel.

Cory, still trying to be the Dutiful Son to parents that died in a car crash, is trying to keep he and his sister together. (She, Poe, was in the crash with them.) Poe is now 19 and wants her own life. She's done therapy, getting skin grafts for her burns, etc. but it is now time for her to move on. She meets a wonderful guy who is helping her cope with her fire problem and she chooses to run away to the Midnight Market.

While on campus, to have a bit of a social, Cory meets Sanderson at an LGBTQ meeting. They hit it off. It seems Sanderson's family is a performance troupe at the Market and they need him to perform, in between helping Cory locate his sister.

These characters felt real to me and I enjoyed how they developed and grew. The sex scenes were superb, being more sensual and less chaotic (hurried?) than a month or so down the line. (Oops! Did I say that??)
4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable read 30 January 2017
By Crystal's Many Reviewers - Published on

This is my first book by Aidee Laidner and I was pleasantly surprised. The prose was tight and the character’s plight engaging, and just a tad frightening because the Weaver was defiantly scary. I had to keep telling myself that I would get an HEA/HFN, just keep reading whenever she came on page.

Cory was trying so hard to hold on to what remained of his fractured family and with every passing year, he was more depressed and miserable. Both him and Poe kept saying, “it’s what our parents would want” but it obviously wasn’t working. Cory was denying himself any sort of happiness and I kept waiting for the explanation why once I realized Poe wasn’t a child but nineteen years old. I could understand why he kept pushing Sanderson away if Poe had been much younger.

I wasn’t sure if I could connect with Sanderson because he was a circus performer. Even a child I wasn’t interested in Big Top performances but when I got to see him put on the act and how he was such a different person to Cory’s eyes, giving an almost mystical feel to the surroundings I was hooked. He was suddenly a character with two faces/personalities and more depth. I eagerly wanted to know more about him.

Like I said, the Weaver was creepy. I would be one who avoided her at all cost and wanted to thump Sanderson for thinking she had his best interest at heart. She was sinister and the flashes of… a predator and possibility a thing of evil the author gave of her was awesome.

Between Cory and Sanderson there is a bit of back and forth where they tell themselves, “No, I’m not going to do…” and then the next paragraph they do the opposite. It was frustrating sometimes but in a couple of cases was understandable, especially when they were pushed by outside forces. There are touching family moments even though I wanted to thump Poe for how she treated Cory. Sanderson made a couple of bad decisions but he tried to rectify them. The last quarter of the book was a fast paced page turner that kept me on my toes.

All in all, this was a very enjoyable read. The writing was tight, giving the story a mystical feel, especially when they entered the market. Cory had my heart from the beginning. The foreshadowing around the Weaver made my skin crawl. Definitely a book that I would recommend to friends.
