[E–pub/E–book] (Kissing Sherlock Holmes)
This book reatly impressed me A friend bought it and had it uploaded to my kindle as a joke because he knows that the idea of Sherlock and Watson together in a romantic sense suicks me in ways that possibly boggle the mind However I figured that if my friend had spend six dollars on a joke the least I could do was read the first chapterThen the next thing I knew is that I had reached my train stop and was just starting chapter threeI wasn t at all exaggerating when I say I hate the idea of Holmes and Watson being together but if that s the case then how could I like this book at all Simple T D McKinneyand Terry Wylis understand Sherlock Holmes and Watson When reading Watson sounds like Watson which I have occasionally noticed to be my biggest critiue of Sherlock Holmes books written by authors other than Doyle and Sherlock Holmes sounds like Sherlock Holmes Perhaps the reason them being together in this book doesn t bother me is because it takes place long after Holmes return and thus Mary is not a point of discussion at all and that s certainly part of it but I think it has to do with how the authors characterize the love between Holmes and WatsonIn Kissing Sherlock Holmes Holmes and Watson are not lusting youths They are Dark Passage grown men that areat love has fostered between as a result of long years of friendship and trust I have always thought of Sherlock Holmes as an asexual He shows no preference of women nor men and neither does he show desire of any sort of romantic or sexual interaction and I feel in many ways that the Sherlock Holmes in this book expresses the same distance from sex This relationship he has with Watson does not stem from a desire of sexual interaction but rather from the desire to bring his already substantial appreciation and love or his best friend one step further Regardless of my views of Sherlock Holmes sexuality I would strongly recommend this book The case is intriguing the characters are delightfully written and the love scenes are steamy while still being written with the same level of class Dr John Watson always presents in his novels It happened again I was sucked in by a title I was lulled into reading a story by the book write up It sounded interesting For my ABC Challenge I

LISTI ENJOYED THE WRITING SO MUCH I HAD TOenjoyed the writing so much I had to some from this writer so I m currently reading Portrait of a Kiss and it s turning out just as ood as I d hoped1st read Oct 30 20112nd read Nov 18 20123rd read Jul 05 20134th read Jun 14 2014This second read was even better than the first I was in the mood for some Sherlock Holmes so I watched a movie then found the series Sherlock and watched that The last show of the second season was Reichenbach Falls and we know how that ended It was so sad I just had to have something happy after that so I pulled this up to ive myself one of the happiest Holmes stories I love Holmes but the true blue Dr Watson has always been one of my favorite literary characters and in this story we see how much he meant to Sherlock and how much Sherlock always meant to him Thank oodness for this happy endingFourth reading I The Go-Between guess no matter how many times I read and re read this story I always have to say I was reading some Sherlock Holmes this weekend as well as viewing the third season of Sherlock where he returns Nothing tops off one of my Sherlock Holmes marathons better than a re read of Kissing Sherlock Holmes We ve always known that Dr Watson and Holmes have a high regard for each other but when Watson s demonstration turns into we find that the regard they have for each other is so much deeper This story is placed after Holmes return after his apparent death at Reichenbach so they both know how much they missed each other during those years of separation I also like that Watson is revealed as worldly therefore not afraid to share his love for Sherlock I find I can keep re reading and always finding layers to this But Iuess what it boils down to is that I love Sherlock and John together and this story is the cherry on top of all the other HolmesWatson writings Reviewed by Joe I am a huge Holmes fan I ve read all the stories seen all the movies Holmes and Watson have iven me much companionship on many nights so I was a little hesitant when I saw this title but also k It seems delightfully in Character That Sherlock Holmes Would that Sherlock Holmes would this story by precipitating a change in his and Watson s relationship in the name of acuiring information While Kissing Sherlock Holmes does not break new round in assuming a homosexual attraction between them TD McKinney and Terry Wylis do provide a sexually charged pastiche with a mystery to solveThe mystery elements have a well weighted share of page time the problem is worthy of Sherlock Holmes attention before Watson arrives at Toddington Oaks Once he s there the danger is no longer confined to treason and blackmail but becomes personal when a freshly kissed Watson is repeatedly endangered The culprit becomes evident far too early in the book but there is a certain entertainment value to watching Holmes flounder around before he figures it out The authors pay attention to the late Victorian sensibilities very well at some times though not so well at others Holmes and Watson pay lip service to not be. Endanger a nationOnly Sherlock Holmes can save an innocent man and bring the traitor to justice It’s a search that could cement the reatest friendship of all time into something far deeper and strongerif the hunt doesn’t end Watson’s life first. O sexual scenes that may be uncomfortable a little ross or exciting depending on who you are but that is all hide spoiler The dialogue was witty and I found myself laughing at odd moments very cleverly written enjoyable mystery and a fun read That first kiss Lets just say interesting I really enjoyed this cozy mystery Loved the characters voice Even though I immediately had the bad uy figured out I still enjoyed the process Holmes took to reveal the mystery I was a bit disappointed that there was no smexin after the first 30% of the book the beginning was HOTalthough the
story wouldn t have appropriately allowed for itwouldn t have appropriately allowed for it still wanted lovin between Holmes and Watson 35 4This was a nice story Understated British comes to mindWatson feels real in his narration of the story and it feels true to the time it is set inThe mystery wasn t very mysterious to me but I found it enjoyable anyway I would definitely read another one of Sherlock and Watson s adventures and see the new aspect of their relationship developed uite possibly one of the worst books I ever managed to finish It took me two months to et through
All The Purple Prosethe purple prose dead horse romance tropes and predictable plot twists and in the end I think it was just bile fascinationThis book doesn t just fail at being a believable romance or a believable mystery or a believed Sherlock Holmes story It just fails Falls flat on his face after a couple of pages and doesn t manage to Deal Maker (Mixed Messages Book 2) (English Edition) get up EverHolmes and Watson are two lovesick puppies who d rather spend the day cuddling and promising undying love to each other rather than catch a criminal They bumble through the case with Holmes failing every important deduction ever but luckily the solution to the mystery falls in their laps But it doesn t matter because Holmes managed to impress the ladies at dinner with his deductions about cellos andardening so he s a proper detective see And anyway there s no need for any Godmanstone Blues genius sleuth when the culprit is so obvious they might as well have a sign that says Hate Me I m Evil on their back Everyone talks as if they were in the 21st century save for one kid plagued by phonetic spelling and theyo around doing all kind of things that would have a Victorian lady in a faint calling strangers by their first names and forgetting to wear Ramp Rats: A Graphic Guide Adventure gloves at dinnerThe thing that left me most baffled was that several reviews and blurbs state that the authors have areat knowledge of the characters and the historical period Let me ask where and when and how was that apparent It takes than offhand mentions of a country manor and horses and English house parties to make a historical novel Just take the dinner scene The characters address each other in the wrong way address the servants in the wrong way talk about all the wrong subjects act inappropriately and are improperly dressedUnless you re looking for bad fiction don t read this book It s not even hilariously bad fiction just terribly written I d ive this one a 45Changing the classic Holmes and Watson into lovers was a unexpected but reat idea I loved the changes they made in their personalities to fit into the MM unexpected but reat idea I loved the changes they made in their personalities to fit into the MM It showed the restraint needed for the historical era but also exhibited their creative flairI loved the characters They still maintained the base of who they were while still exploring the change in their relationship and seeing Holmes become protective of Watson was reatThe attention to period detail whether characters locale or social status were well done And the dialogue was witty often making me chuckle I certainly wouldn t mind seeing the authors Spitting Daisies Communicating Through the Sunset give.
