    One thought on “Country Mouse”

    1. Fabulous read, written by two amazing authors and had me  gripped from the start!City Mouse is being released on the 18th March… so I thought I had best get a wriggle on and read this one first, and with it being written by two authors I love, it really was no hardship! I loved both the MC’s, they were very believable characters that I actually cared about, brought to life and delivered by the amazing writing skills of Mr Voinov and Ms Lane, their words just flowed seamlessly combining thei [...]

    2. 5 wonderful starsAmy Lane meets Aleksandr Voinovand LondonThe result was spectacular. Funny, hot, emotional, romantic the list goes on. And the the great writing. What else can you expect from two masters of the genre. Absolutely loved it. Loved Own and Malcolm's story. Book #2, here I comeHighly recommended

    3. Written October 22, 20144.2 Stars - A touching gem! - A Yank on vacation, a British suit-guy, London, kink, strong feelings. - Romantic sweet and very hot.Book #1Yet another Aleksandr Voinov novella felt good. This time written with another good M/M writer, Amy Lane didn't do it less tempting.What a surprise!!!Country Mouse has that special something. What makes a story memorable and loved. A sweet touching gem. So glad I gave it a chance. ~ A good one!******************************************* [...]

    4. A smartly written story about a pair of seeming misfits that quickly get to know one another during a weekend in London. Owen is "Yank", a 23 year old bisexual son of a hippie on a trip with his friend and ex-girlfriend Jenny, who meets Malcolm, a near thirty British trader and arrogant Dom in a seedy pub on Owen's first day in town. A self-described "country mouse", Owen is immediately intrigued by the man in a dirty pub drinking top shelf vodka, and when he's immediately hit on, ready to show [...]

    5. London is my favourite city. Doing tourist shit in London was a great experience which I'd like to repeat. Probably not as great as Owen's, but we can't all be that lucky.I loved everything about this story - the setting, the characters, the kinks(!), the sweetness, and the ending.It's sodding perfect.

    6. FUN FUN FUN!!!! That's the main thing for me with this story. I had fun reading it, fun hunting for where the uniqueness each author came shining throughJUST FUN!!I must admit that I was a bit nervous with this one. Amy Lane and Aleksandr Voinov are two of my most favorite authors in this genre, I've pretty much read everything they've written, and have not been disappointed yet, their styles are SO DIFFERNT though! I am happy to report that for me this pairing worked BEAUTIFULLY.It's a testamen [...]

    7. An odd mixture of sweet-hearted kink and fish-out-of-water romance. Both characters were delightful company, and it's a pleasure to know we will see them again in the upcoming sequel.The bar scenes, in particular, were charming and funny.

    8. Lane and Voinovw that's an odd combination but it worked perfectly for me.  To be honest, I was terrified of reading this book simply because of the two authors named on the cover. I expected it to be hardcore and full of angst. But no, it was the complete opposite. There really was no angst at all and it could even be said that it was a little too perfect and a little too unrealistic, but it fit my mood perfectly at the time.It was about Owen, the toppy country mouse, falling for Malcolm, the [...]

    9. Loved the fuck out of this book the second time around. I almost don't want to read the sequel because it ended so perfectly. Almost.Full review at sequel.

    10. Neither of these authors are in my top-favorite list. Amy Lane's stories are hits and misses (I DNF'ed some of them). While the only Aleks Voinov's story that I can read was Transit. I just don't have immediate chemistry with their writing style. So, I'm not one actually jumping enthusiastically for this one.Personally, I do love the ending part. It's cute to see the big bad Dom, Malcolm, 'succumbs' to the country mouse, Owen. How he finds himself out of his element. Such classic Harlequin roman [...]

    11. The writing is disjointed. The plot evinces the work of two polar opposite authors. The kink is completely unintegrated. The sweetness is saccharine, particularly at the end. And the switch offs between British and American are erroneous several times.The three stars are for my enjoyment of the storyline, the idea itself. I like the notion of meeting that person who exposes your truth and who you cannot let go of even if that revelation and concession comes after a single weekend. Again, I alway [...]

    12. 3.5 Stars, not quite 4!Perfect read when you’re in the mood for some sexy sweet man loving, all wrapped up with Hollywood movie ending. Lucky for me this is exactly what I needed, otherwise I might be tempted to get a little bit pissy and eye rolly about it.I do so enjoy seeing a sophisticated, arrogant and controlling yuppie brought down a few notches by an all American country boy. It’s ever so satisfying to watch that artificial restraint unravel revealing the needy man within the egotist [...]

    13. ~~~A lovely, romantic, romance.This was my first Amy Lane book, even though I've been intending to read her for some time. I'm so pleasantly pleased that I picked this to be my first Amy Lane. I have a big, dumb grin on my face that won't be fading soon. I chose to read this because of my respect for Aleksandr Voinov's writing. I don't know if I had expectations for this story but I have to say that I was surprised to find something so sweet and sexy. Having just come off reading his Dark Soul s [...]

    14. That title made me cringe. The cover screamed “Not for Anna!!" I read the synopsis and thought “Yep, this is not my thing.” Well, I’m eating crow and let me tell you, it tastes damn good. If this is fluff, it's fluff with heart. Country Mouse is about a one night stand that turns into something meaningful and genuine. Simple as that. The story sucked me in from page one and didn't release me until the very satisfying end. (Apologies, a lot of double entendres flowing right now, after ALL [...]

    15. ❇ Wonderful ❇ Sigh-worthy ❇ Captivating ❇ This is my forth book read by Amy Lane since I discovered her two months ago. Sigh, I just love that author. She's always surprising me, coming with stories no one would have expected. While it is not my absolute favorite, (Talker is) I very much enjoyed reading this (short) story. One thing I hope though is that, in the sequels, there will be more conversations. The sex scenes were great so it's not like I'm complaining about thatHalt there, why [...]

    16. So some crazy shit happened! Amy Lane and Aleks Voinov wrote a book together. I know what you’re thinking ‘OMFG! Am I gonna die of angst? Will someone be dying, getting raped? Will I be crying; will I throw my e-reader?’ The answer is no folks, you will be freaking smiling and losing your pants all over the place. I can see your shocked faces, the WTF faces, of are we talking about the same Amy Lane and Mr Voinov. It’s them alright, and it comes through in the writing.Owen is vacationing [...]

    17. Loved every minute of this book. The collaboration between Amy and Aleks worked. Sometimes you can tell where co-authors leave their footprint on a story. Add the fact that Amy and Aleks have two very different writing styles, I was thinking it was going to be obvious in Country Mouse. But it isn't. It is seamless and smartly done.A Country Mouse is a story of what happens when a not quite as he seems Country Mouse and a not quite as he seems Dom find each other at a crappy bar and vacation love [...]

    18. 3.5 stars.I needed this book. After having spent a weekend reading some intense and emotional series, I needed a "sweet", easy book to ween me back into reality."Country Mouse" did a few things for me:1) made me want to visit London2) made me fall in love w/ Owen3) made me crave Indian food4) made me stop being such a hardass as I've been lately, taking all the books I've been reading WAY too seriously. This had tons of holes in it and could easily be torn apart, but I liked it anyways.I'm still [...]

    19. Appealing short story about 'country mouse' American, Owen who is on holidays in London when he's picked up in a bar by stock trader Dom, Malcolm. I liked that Owen is a lot more than Malcolm anticipated and the dynamic between them is sexy. The story is a little unbelievable but easy enough to go along for the ride. The cover is great.

    20. 3.5 starsI considered reading this book many times before, but Amy Lane and Aleksandr Voinov writing together? Their usual styles are totally different; I couldn’t imagine how this book will end up.I was pleasantly surprised by this story, it’s sweet (it is!) and 100% romance.Owen is an American touristing through Europe, he visits London and meets Malcolm, a banker who is a Dom (or is he?), they clicked at a bar and decide to spend the night together and after that the weekend, when they le [...]

    21. This was actually very sweetMalcolme and Owen meet at a bar in London.They enjoy each others company very muchOwen is not the pushover, Country mouse he is and Malcolme certainly isn't as shallow as he thinks you to believeI loved Malcolme in his role as "dom", but as it seemed to be he was all to eager to be in the submissive role as well!!!"You can't. Can't can't just go away. Can't just You can't get on that train and charge out of my life. It's not fair. I can't work, dammit. I I made a bad [...]

    22. Wham, bam, thank you mam! Well, this book started with the fastest hook up I have ever read or experienced. However, I loved the power games being played between these two, always a tug-war who was going to get the upper-hand. Malcolm not turning out to be as bossy or dominant as he liked to pretend and Owen not being submissive by any means. It was great to see how their relationship developed and to see the barriers come crashing down around Malcolm's so cold and unfeeling exterior. I loved th [...]

    23. *completely flabbergasted* O_O I didn't even know this was in the realm of possibility. Apparently, I don't stalk Aleks enoughIs there a blog where Amy Lane talks about her experience with Aleks? Was he gentle, do you think?

    24. Review posted at: Swept Away By RomanceMore like Roaring Grizzly!!! HOT, HOT, HOT!! I adored Owen and Malcolm! They couldn’t have been more different, yet they were so perfect for each other. Talk about role reversal, it was amazing to see how it all played out. Owen is on vacation in London with his ex-girlfriend, when he spots Malcolm across a bar that he ventures into. He’s bi-sexual, but at the moment it’s the sexy Brit who’s caught his eye. Malcolm is waiting in the bar for his “d [...]

    25. Before I get to a more in-depth review of this book, can I just say how wonderful this book cover is?.? The visual representation of them is exactly as is written and demonstrates the differences between these two men and yet shows how great they look together. And together they are simply divine, as is this story. In too many of the books I've read that feature BDSM acts, the reason an individual chooses the lifestyle isn't made clear, but in this story it's clear that Malcolm chooses the lifes [...]

    26. omfg. Squee! i fucking loved this. Bloody brilliant. Im all full of happy fluttery fuzzies in my chest. I was excited about this as soon as i was told it was happening. Well anyone who knows me and what an Amy Lane fangirl I am (i figure with words like squee in my reviews i may as well own the fangirl title) knows that excited would be an understatement. I was fascinated cuz these two authors are so breath takingly brilliant and so amazeballs when it comes to character driven, angst overloaded [...]

    27. I loved Malcolm thinking he had everything under control until it spiraled completely away from him. Malcolm is focused and driven and really the kind of man you look at from the outside and think he's got it all together. But he's actually very lonely and in need of some honest-to-goodness romance in his life, the kind that comes with love at the end of the day. And he gets that in Owen. The younger man may not know all the ways of the big city or know about fashion and food, but he knows about [...]

    28. The story about instant encounter, instant attraction and what supposed to be a long weekend fling turned out to be something more. Although it's short and fun, it had depth too. I especially adore the cute and smart banters between the MCs.In short it's engaging and enjoyable. The sequel is City Mouse.

    29. I admit, I never thought this would work, but it did, so now I'm just gonna go and metaphorically eat my socks. This is going straight into my "comfort reads when I need a pick-me-up"-folder. It's adorable.
