Review: The Bad Luck Bride




Synopsis:

All were shocked at the announcement of the “cursed” Lady Claire Cavensham to Lord Alexander Hallworth, the Marquess of Pembrooke, especially since she is already engaged to another unfortunate Lord. Perhaps she will make it to the altar this time with one of these fine gentlemen! Could her run of bad luck finally be at an end? It’s highly doubtful in this writer’s humble opinion. —Midnight Cryer
No one is left breathless at the imperious pronouncement of her engagement to Lord Pembrooke more than Claire. She hardly knows the dangerously outrageous man! But after three engagements gone awry and a fourth going up in glorious flames, she isn’t in a position to refuse…especially once she realizes that Lord Pembrooke makes her want to believe she’s not a bad luck bride anymore…
Alexander requires the hand of his enemy’s fiancée in marriage in order to complete his plans for revenge. It’s his good fortune that the “cursed” woman is desperate. However, what begins as a sham turns into something scandalously deeper. The beguiling lady has no business laying claim to his heart. But as a mission of revenge turns into fiery passion, Alexander wants nothing more than to break Claire’s curse…and lead them both to their hearts’ desire.
“The Bad Luck Bride is a stroke of good luck for readers—the intricate plot, arresting characters,and rich emotional resonance will leave you swooning.”—New York Times bestselling author Sabrina Jeffries

Rating: 5-stars

Review:

The Bad Luck Bride by Janna MacGregor is a fascinating historical. Immediately readers are drawn deep into the tale. It lured me further by pure curiosity. The suspense of one charcater’s plan…and what will actually come of it got me excited. The Bad Luck Bride is about one man getting back at another by using his enemy’s fiancé. But little will both the bride and husband to be know that real love will play into the equation. I found it hilarious, enticing, and ful, of drama. Th action was never disappointing. Janna MacGregor has a flare for writinga romance that beckons and captivates readers whole. My heart was with the charcaters as their troubles unfolded. Society has a way of drawing the characters out…and pulling them closer than they thought they would ever be. Revenge is not to be toyed with…emotions ran strong within the book. I was highly entertained. Both Alexander and Claire are characters that readers like myself will always remember. Overall, I highly recommend this well-written plot to all. 

Review: Knight Takes Pawn (Happy Release Day!)

Jagger rules everything. The cities from the elite districts, to the slums, and everything in between are his domain in one of three sovereigns on the planet Jaru. The only law is Jagger Law which can change at any moment. One wrong look or word can get a body part chopped off or have you killed.
Since the beginning of the war, which was almost over three decades ago, the air has had been stale and musty, still smelling of burnt metal. All resources needed to survive are severely limited, causing many Jaruians to pillage one another just to get a single meal for the day.
There are some who wish to end Jagger’s power and they’ve started to infiltrate his organization. Money, amongst other things, are just a farce that Jagger uses to dangle in front of his subjects to keep the population in line and distracted. Those who want to see the end of Jagger’s reign want to take control over the depleting natural resources in order to save the planet and the Jaruian species.
Natalie gets caught up in Jagger’s twisted game of power and control when she’s taken from her sovereign. Against her will, like all women who are caught, Natalie is thrown into the Jaruian sex trade. With her new, unwanted job responsibilities, Natalie takes a stand, willing to die fighting for her life rather than be used. When an opportunity presents itself, is Natalie willing to do whatever it takes to free herself or remain only a pawn?

Review:

Knight Takes Pawn by Martha Sweeney is her 5th novel. I have read everything published by this talented woman. Unlike her previous fictional worlds, Knight Takes Pawn heads in a new genre direction. This one is a psychological thriller. All previous books were contemporary romance. I can honestly say, that Martha Sweeney has a knack for writing the best reads. Whether they are short or full-length novels.  Instantly, I was intrigued wondering how this writer was going to do with her new direction. But I was amazed once again. She totally blew me out of this world and deeeply into her new one. Thrilling, engaging, and dark. Knight Takes Pawn is a must read for all. 

Inside this latest book, Knight Takes Pawn, Martha Sweeney take us, readers to a new place. Themes like slavery, cruelty, and trust are incorporated throughout the piece. Trust is greatly lacking due to the spies. Martha Sweeney has created a world that no one can trust someone else. If trust is placed in the wrong person…everything is lost. Gone forever. Death hangs in the air. The suspense of what is to come on every page will leave readers on the edge of their seats. Absolutely, a compelling yet frightening read. One woman is tired of what happens to her and fights back. I love the daring, and boldness of the characters. Evil versus good. I was addicted from beginning to end.

Rating: 5-stars

Review:

Murder in the Dark by Kerry Greenwood is another fabulous murder mystery. Inside, I found myself following Miss Phryne Fisher as entangles another crime. Her detective skills are amazing. Miss Fisher is a modern living woman who defies that of her own time period. She’s bold, clever, and charming. Kerry Greenwood has once more kept me hanging onto every one of her words. Action, adventure, and clues to chase. 

Murder in the Dark is highly engaging to read. I never knew what to expect next from the woman detective. Danger is always around with Phyrne Fisher. That and nothing is done in simple terms either. The high, rich, and dramatic lifestyle is featured every time. Miss Fisher may have many faults but her skills make up for them. A daring personality is needed when threats are made and people are missing. Time is racing and Miss Fisher is chasing after the evidence…

Richly detailed, exciting,and thrilling…Kerry Greenwood has done it again. Creating a vivid bright world of fiction that readers can loose themselves within and feel the rush of adrenaline as the plot unfolds…overall, I highly recommend this book to readers everywhere.

The Children Under the Ice by R. A. Douthitt is the most intriguing start to a new mystery series. The story is beyond suspenseful. Dark, thrilling, and frightening.

Review:

Scorching Road by both Toby Neal and Emily Kimelman is as exactly as it sounds…scorching hot! I have read previous books by the talented writer, Toby Neal, and I was immediately taken to this new title. I know this work was a piece featured by two writers and I couldn’t distinguish either writer’s handiwork within the novel. It read as tho it had been written only by one. These two writers have a unique talent in making a deeply suspenseful yet sexy tale. There’s a flu that is proving deadly across the nation. Dr. Elizabeth Johnson and her partner were working on the vaccine. Only her partner finally got it down…yet it cost him his life. Now, the vaccine is in her hands and it will take everything she has to get it completed in time. But things get complicated. Her plane crashes…she meets a man unlike any other and together they venture out for one of the toughest journeys ever told. Epic, stunning, and brilliantly woven. I couldn’t stop reading, Scorching Road. This romantic suspense piece kept me hooked from beginning to end. I look forward to the next grand scheme by these writers. They sure knew how to capture my attention inside this exciting plot. Overall, I highly recommend it to readers everywhere.

Review: June Jenson and the Coins of Cassidy



Synopsis:

June Jenson is back, and she’s in more trouble than ever. Still adjusting to her family’s recent exoneration from the Archeological world (they stole an artifact, caused a ruckus… it’s a long story), June decides to embark on a press tour to repair the image of her employer (Oxford University) and her (somewhat crazy, but altogether loveable) Grandfather.

 When the opportunity arises to go to America to find a lost treasure belonging to the notorious outlaw Butch Cassidy, June know’s it isn’t something she can shy away from – even if she wasn’t exactly the one who was assigned by Oxford to the task. Along with the Professor, Dr. Cooke, and her emotionally-stilted boyfriend Griffin, June embarks on a treasure hunt in the wild mountains of Colorado. June hopes to make the discovery of a lifetime… that is, before anyone at Oxford realizes she’s left the country.

Rating: 5-stars

Review:

June Jenson and the Coins of Cassidy by Emily Harper is the perfect read. It has the right balance of mystery, intrigue, and romance. Once more, I was curious as to what lies ahead for the main character, June Jenson. There’s always some kind of adventure awaiting when following June. She’s bright, talented, and a lovable character. I truly enjoy watching June as she struggles to balance the tasks, dreams, relationship and work all at once. Emily Harper’s writing is superb. Humor, suspense, and exciting. Every page lures me further into the plot. June Jenson and the Coins of Cassidy is definitely a page turner. Dealing with her grandfather has gotten a bit better tho his Alzheimer’s is getting worse. Then, June’s lover, Griffin surprised me. It seems he’s grown as a character from the first novel. I can’t wait to see what is in store for these characters. At the ending, Emily Harper teases me with a slight taste of what may come in the next adventure. Overall, I highly recommend this new series to readers worldwide.

Rating: 4.5-stars

Review:

Emily Harper has surprised me with a wonderful world of mystery, intrigue and a bit of romance. I would like to see more romance between June Jensen and another character. June’s personality made me warm up to her instantly. I was taken with her story. Her family, her grandfather, was accused of stealing a relic. Then, the plot gets more interesting by the seconds, when June, herself is put on a job to guard this same relic. However, it goes missing again, and saving her family name will prove most difficult. Especially with a grandfather who drinks a lot, gives the caretakers a hassle, and has Alzheimer’s. June tries her best to take care of him and chasing after her dream of being an archeologist.But doing so, will cause her to chase after clues and dig up the past. A family friend and chauffeur willing to help her, June Jensen may just save her family name after all. This was the first novel I have read by Emily Harper. I was both intrigued and fascinated. The plot moved quickly and kept my sole interest with every page. Emily Harper has a way of creating suspense and keeping readers guessing. I loved reading it. I can’t wait to read the second novel in this new series. Overall, I highly recommend June Jensen and the Shield of Quell to all.

Review:

Joe Cosentino has a reputation among his readers as the best novelist. Every book of his that I have read thus far…is outstanding. Inside this particular novel, readers will meet a variety of characters that creates a soap opera intrigue, unlike any other novel read. This story will definitely keep readers guessing with every page. Only when readers reach the last page does everything become know. It’s addictive. Cozzi Cove is a brand new series that will keep Joe Cosentino’s readers on their toes and begging for more. I laughed, cried, and fell in love with this latest novel.
Readers can easily loose themselves within Cozzi Cove. Suspense, adventure, and an intensity that will drive readers with insane as well as keeping them hooked. The characters are well-developed. The romance is created to a perfection as always. I don’t believe Joe Cosentino is capable of writing a bad novel. This novel just proves his raw beautiful talent for writing stories that will knock readers off their feet and deep into the plot. Cozzi Cove is full of characters, that comes, to life, and each has a personality so completely different from the others that it will indeed be very hard to put the book down once readers begin reading it.

Review: Marked for Revenge


Synopsis:

Eager to erase any evidence of her sordid childhood, Berzelius must secretly hunt down this deadly nemesis with whom she shares a horrific past.  

Meanwhile, the police are zeroing in on the elusive head of the long-entrenched Swedish narcotics trade, who goes by the name The Old Man. No one has ever encountered this diabolical mastermind in person; he is like a shadow, but a shadow who commands extreme respect. Who is this overarching drug lord? Berzelius craves to know his identity, even as she clandestinely tracks Danillo, who has threatened to out her for who she really is. She knows she must kill him first, before he can reveal her secrets. If she fails, she will lose everything. 

As she prepares for the fight of her life, Berzelius discovers an even more explosive and insidious betrayal—one that entangles her inextricably in the whole sordid network of crime. 

The second in a trilogy of fast-paced, high-stakes thrillers by the international bestselling author Emelie Schepp, Marked for Revenge involves the international drug trade and child trafficking and features the brilliant, enigmatic prosecutor Jana Berzelius, whose own dark past has, until recently, been hidden even from herself.

Rating: 5-stars

Review:

Marked for Revenge by Emelie Schepp is the second installment to one of the best and darkest thrillers ever. Immediately, I was drawn into the web of darkness. One that definitely surrounds the main character, Jana Berzelius. A prosecutor who goes to danger’s most i inviting places to get what she needs. Answers. Things like secrets, betrayals, and suspense have their way of always making it into Emelie Schepp’s novels. I felt compelled to know more. Even if that meant following, Jana Berzelius, to her death. 

The characterization is amazing. I got more of an insider’s scoop with this book. More information on the main character’s life, is unveiled. Emelie Schepp has created another compelling read. She makes organized crime like child trafficking into one of the most horrendous nightmares yet. While, I wish these crimes were not being committed at all, the reality and fear of what happens is perfectly caught within this novel. The plot is fast-paced, complex, and bone chilling. Captivating, frightening, and engaging…Marked for Revenge is definitely a recommended read for all. 

Review: Somewhere on St. Thomas

Rating: 5-stars

Review:

Somewhere on St. Thomas by Toby Neal is a sexy romance. I was got up by the instant connection the two main characters had. Just one meeting was all it took. Ruby has this thing about sailors…not good enough for her. Or so she said until Rafe came into her life. Right after winning the spelling bee, her mom introduced her to Rafe. Ruby of course is heading off to college in Boston. Rafe goes sailing out in the ocean…never would work out or would it? Ruby sets Rafe off like a bunch of fireworks. All she did was be herself and show off her sport skills. That and her beauty has him hooked. He’s ruined. No other redhead will do. Only Ruby. Ruby isn’t a saint. She wants sex. Rafe sets her down that path of sexual wanting that it frightens her. She runs away scared. But before she leaves the island…Rafe comes back to say goodbye but leaves her something. From there the novel picked up rather quickly. I was intrigued. These two could make any readers blush far worse than Ruby’s worst blushing spells. The heat comes off the pages. Their intense love and attraction made this felt so real. Their life it seems is connected. Somewhere on St. Thomas is a hot read. Heat, action, and believable characters. Once more, Toby Neal has created a stunning world of fiction. One that lured me deep into its depth and had me wanting more. I loved it. I do recommend this for those eighteen and older due to the adult content inside…other than that I highly recommend it to all.

“Toby Neal has created a wonderfully rounded action heroine with everything: looks, brains, mixed martial arts prowess, and the ability to swear proficiently in Thai and English. Fans of the genre will love FBI agent Sophie Ang, as well as the tangled web she must negotiate in the tropical setting of Hawaii.” Russell Blake, NYT and USA Today Bestselling Author



Rating: 5-stars

Review:

Wired In by Toby Neal is amazing. The heroine, Sophie Ang, is my new favorite. She comes highly skilled and lures me deep into the trouble at hand. Sophie Ang can do a lot more than most heroines I have met. But like all of them she contains a soft spot that leads her to playing the hero. There’s also a spot to her that makes this novel stand out beyond others in its genre. She has the wealth and the knowledge to do what she does. Plus, like everyone else, she’s human. Her personality comes out as a shy sometimes socially awkward. I was able to relate to that myself. Being social awkward is hard to overcome. Having read, the second installment to this brand new series, I can say that she has greatly changed. I like the person she has grown into and can’t wait to she what happens in the third book. 

Wired In is about a kidnapping ring of children. One of the most horrendous crimes…and Sophie Ang plunges herself deep into a deadly game. One that may save the kids. Technology is both frightening and useful. If used in the right ways, answers can be solved. However, it can also lead to danger. Much like the intriguing tale, Toby Neal brings to readers. Intense, suspenseful, and a highly engaging journey. The plot is fast-paced and well-written. The title of this novel fits in precisely with the plot. Sophie Ang is definitely wired in…I am a huge fan of FBI thrillers and suspense titles. This series fits the bill perfectly. I loved how deep the book captured me. The emotional attachments felt so real. Fear rippling through me as the tension built up…every page as addictive as the first. Toby Neal is a talented writer. After reading both her novels, I can see why. Absolutely a stunning read, that will sweep readers off their feet and drag them into the book. Overall, I highly recommend Wired In to readers worldwide.

Review:

Recall: A Red Ops Thriller by David McCaleb is a thrilling tale. Danger, intrigue, suspense all wrapped into one stunning novel. Fans of the Bourne Series, as well as the Marvel Action Hero Movies will enjoy this thriller. I did. The main character, Red, is like a Jason Bourne. Once a military guy, always a military guy. The training never leaves them. Their skills are what keeps them alive. Red is a man that I instantly loved. His character is smart, skilled, and tough. He is the good guy everyone wants. Like all men in the military, once they are in…the danger never stops. Enemies are easily made. Red wants a normal life, but the danger he has coming after those he loves will make his life complicated and deadly.  Although, Red can kill anything anywhere. It’s instilled into him. Just like Jason Bourne memory is a key to everything. Action, fighting, romance, and a threatening situation makes for one of the best reads ever. Once I started reading it, I couldn’t put it down…overall, I highly recommend, Recall to all. 

Review: River City Dead



Synopsis:

“The third book in a cute cozy series features an appealing heroine with a self-deprecating wit and a determination to never grow old.” – Library Journal (on Smart But Dead)

Advice columnist Aggie Mundeen and SAPD Detective Sam Vanderhoven plan their first rendezvous at a San Antonio River Walk hotel during Fiesta Week—sumptuous sights, sounds, and festivities in the middle of America’s Venice. A vacation from crime and a reset for their tumultuous relationship.

But murder descends on the Casa Prima Hotel. Disturbing revelations surface about the Fabulous Femmes, Aggie’s new friends, holding a convention. Evil emerges at parties in La Villita. Calamity plagues Aggie’s debut dance performance at the Arneson River Theater, the celebration skewed by carousing, crazies, and corpses. Even in idyllic River City, crime complicates relationships.

Rating: 5-stars

Review:

River City Dead by Nancy G. West is another exciting mystery. I cannot get enough of Nancy G. West’s main character, Aggie Mundeen. She’s an older woman, clever, clumsy, and lovable. I find her funny. There is never a boring moment where Aggie is found. Readers will be laughing-out-loud and enjoying this new tale. Danger, murder, and complications once more follow the star, Aggie Mundeen. Just when she should be enjoying herself with Detective Sam Vanderhoven, things go haywire. Murder, mayhem, and disaster sons follows on every page. River City is beautiful and a whole lot of trouble. So much that it might just cause a rift between my two favorite characters. Love, trust, and teamwork are just a few themes that are woven into the story. Aggie will have to learn how to work on that trust and teamwork Issue if she and Sam will be an item. The characters are believable and the plot is fascinating. Fast-paced, intriguing, and like an Aggatha Christie novel…River City Dead is one adventure I highly recommend to all. Nancy G. West did it again, in creating a masterpiece that I will never forget.

Under the Double Integral – Ray Donner (Planet Master) by Stan Burns is an astounding piece. Explore science and the vast world of space. Every pages leads readers on a journey of a lifetime. Imagine exploring Mercy and Venus and finding valuable gems. Just being on the planets would be exciting enough. I felt like all the things that I learned in Physcial Science were being taught to me again. Except in this entertaining world of fiction, I could easily see how the knowledge would come in handy. Knowing the tempartures and atmosphere stuff is fascinating. The combinations of what there are up of is interesting. The moon, sun, and space travel will definitely hook readers. I definitely was lured. Captivated by the story. The characters were refreshing and kept me turning the pages. Intrigue, educational, and adventure all wrapped into one brilliant read.

Rating: 5 stars

Review:

Daniel Darcey has written Dark Rage, with belivable out of this world characters!!! The two main characters are sisters. These sisters are opposites who fight each other using their magical power, talents, and knowledge of technology to keep the other one away from their plans. Asora loves history, reading books, and knows more about advance technology than her evil sister Laxur. Laxur uses her power of seduction to persuade people to do things for her. Laxur knows more about military fighting than her sister Asora. Both sisters love each other even though they constantly fight against each other for good versus evil. This amazing novel, contain excitement, love, adventure, advance technology, romance and wars between two kingdoms. There is never a dull moment when reading, Dark Rage. You will find yourself on magical discoveries, falling in love, and battling your toughest enemies. Daniel Darcey’s book is one that is geared for all readers in every genre! His stunning and brilliantly written plot will leave you asking for more. I highly recommend reading his first novel in the series. Once you begin, you will never stop reading. I look forward to this writer’s next book and grand adventure in this series. A sci-fi fantasy full of promise.

The writer’s talent is obvious from the beginning. His creation of Laxur an Asora was brilliant. No creature nor character can compare to the two sisters. Their personalities are so different from each other. Both princesses are determined. They will use everything in their power to keep their kingdoms alive. But how far will one of them go? Power is a major theme. I see both the good and bad sides of it within this new novel. Daniel Darcey also, let’s readers see the characters best and worst sides. I loved that. It made the characters come to life. Their world then became three-dimensional. The war is never over…and the fighting never stops. There will always be a new enemy to fight and choices to be made. Where the sisters go and what will come, is something that readers everywhere must dive into to see for themselves. I was never really into sci-fi fantasy until I read this book. Daniel Darcey has masterfully woven a series that has snatched me from my chair and deep into it’s pages. Dark Rage is a must read for all.

Review: Killmore


Synopsis:

Amazon Best-Selling Author

You know how they say the enemy of your enemy is your friend? Well, I’m still determining if there’s any truth to that statement.
I was used by the Feds to report on the dealings of Antonio Herrera – the major Mexican crime lord since his uncle passed, leaving everything to Antonio. I knew everything about Antonio’s business. How, you ask? I was the only woman he kept close, really close – he claimed he loved me. You get to see and hear a lot of interesting things when you hold that kind of status.
Now, the Feds have me in what they claim is witness protection. However, I never feel safe knowing he’s out there. My family thinks I’m dead. All the while, I keep to myself, avoid most people in my new hometown and train rigorously everyday–waiting for the time when the devil comes calling for his debt to be paid.

Rating 5 stars

Review:

Killmore by Martha Sweeney…is completely different than her other novels. I was susrprised. Yet, right away, the main character sucked me into the book. The leading female character has a way with her personality that draws readers to her like bees to honey. No matter how strong a front she puts out…people like her. Both fictional and non-fictional. Her journey was one that proves believable. She did what any woman wanting survive do..but it wasn’t enough. She wakes up in protective custody. The bad guy is still lurking out there…and one day he will come after her. She lives each each in peparations for that fatal day. Fear, maybe. Just knows it’s going to happen. Martha Sweeney has caught the attention of women who have been in abusive relationships and how their lives spiral out of control. I feel the frustrations, anger, and resentment deep inside the character. The waiting adds such an intensity to this novel. Then, there’s her way of pushing others away.  Like the male doctor who would be good for her. But due to men’s treatments towards her, she only wants the sex part. If they can’t handle that, nothing else is going to happen. A tough, determined, and intelligent woman who fights each day. It’s not easy. Killmore is full of action, intrigue, and suspense. There is romance woven into the tale. Readers will open this up, and never look back. This was an exciting journey, and I loved each moment of it. Martha Sweeney has once again, captured my attention with her latest novel. Her character has caught me, too. Overall, I highly recommend Killmore to readers everywhere.

Do I love her? Of course, I do. Can I let her get even deeper into the hellacious mess my life is?

No way. You don’t do that to someone you love.

Rating: 4 stars

Review:

Everything to Me (book 1) by Teresa Hill is a great read. Teresa Hill has a talent for keeping readers guessing constantly. That may not be some readers’ liking but it still worked out for this read. I thought of the cliffhangers as the ending to an episode of the book. Like shows on Netflix. Everything to Me reads off more like a new adult novel more so than a YA. I mean yes, there are a lot of YA materials that have stuff inside like drugs, sex, and abuse that go beyond what the age groups should read. Yet, I felt with both characters being older teens and the other heading off to college that the story fits in better with a new adult category. The growing relationship among, two friends is one like YA novels present. It has that coming of age vibe and the unknown atmosphere. I liked it. Felt it was an accurate showing of teens in love and growing up. There is a lot of adult content like sex, abuse, and drinking as well as violence. But Teresa Hill has woven it in a realistic yet raw form for all to see. Her characters act like those in real life would. I thought that was great. Readers can easily relate to the main characters. Being friends yet want something more…but don’t want to screw up the friendship. That sounds relatable to all readers. The uncertainty of love and where it will lead them was another great theme. Intriguing, addictive, and entertaining. Both characters have flaws that make them human. Three dimensional. Overall, Everything to Me is indeed a fascinating short read.

Review: Convergence Point

 
Rating: 5 stars

Synopsis:

A brand new Time & Shadows Mystery!

Agent Samantha Rose has already died once and knows the exact date she’ll die again.

Having taken down a terrorist organization bent on traveling through time to overthrow the government, Sam figured she was done dealing with the unbelievable. Finally out of backwater Alabama, she’s the senior agent in a Florida district, and her life is back on track.

Until a scientist is found dead. And then an eco-terrorist. And then a clone of herself again.

As the pieces start to fall together, they paint a picture that seems to defy everything they know about time and physics. But the bodies are all too real, and by partnering up with Agent MacKenzie once more, they might just figure out what is going on. And when.”

Review:

 The second novel in this super amazing series, is Convergence Point. Here, readers meet Sam Rose once more. The danger is still as threatening as before and the mystery really drives readers forward. Every page is intense, intriguing, and thrilling. Imagine knowing when you died and when you will die again…that could alter the future. Time, physics and law will completely baffle not only the main character but readers as well. I found myself just as curious as the agent, Sam Rose in finding out what exactly is going and why. But this time, agent Sam Rose, will need help from Mackenzie aka Mac. I love these two characters. They are truly an awesome pair to watch in action. Once more, Liana Brooks has brought another masterpiece and created twists to lure readers inside…Convergence Point. Overall, I highly recommend this second tale to readers everywhere. 

Review: The Day Before

Rating:  5 stars

Synopsis:

A body is found in the Alabama wilderness. The question is:

Is it a human corpse … or is it just a piece of discarded property?

Agent Samantha Rose has been exiled to a backwater assignment for the Commonwealth Bureau of Investigation, a death knell for her career. But then Sam catches a break—a murder—that could give her the boost she needs to get her life back on track. There’s a snag, though: the body is a clone, and technically that means it’s not a homicide. And yet, something about the body raises questions, not only for her, but for coroner Linsey Mackenzie.

The more they dig, the more they realize nothing about this case is what it seems … and for Sam, nothing about Mac is what it seems, either.

This case might be the way out for her, but that way could be in a bodybag.

A thrilling new mystery from Liana Brooks, The Day Before will have you looking over your shoulder and questioning what it means to be human.

Review:

The Day Before by Liana Brooks is a thrilling read. Her main character is one of my new all-time favorites. Sam Rose is faced with obstacles and goes out risking her life. Danger, suspense, and intrigue all perfectly woven into a stunning new series. Mystery is great. But in this book the mystery will drag readers off their chairs and into the novel. Liana Brooks has a talent of keeping her readers guessing as well as entertained. The Day Before has spun a whole new twist on time travel. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this. It was hard to stop reading and it will get readers riled up for the next installment. Adventure of a lifetime waiting…to be opened.

Rating: 5 stars

Review:

Crossing in Time by DL Orton is the first book in the Between Two Evils series. This novel is outstanding. I want to laugh out loud at the moments when the sexy irresistible man is driving the woman crazy and they both know it but she keeps up trying to not let him get to her. Too late. He has and will get under her skin. Loss, love, and redemption. Crossing in Time is an emotional journey that readers won’t ever forget. I fell in love automatically with the main characters. I felt sad, loved, and happy. The ending left me hanging…I can’t wait to read the second book in this amazing series. Exciting, suspenseful, and well-developed. Going across the universe during different times can be a hassel especially for the two lovers in this book. Overall, I highly recommend this novel to all.

Rating: 5 stars

Review: 

Flotilla by Daniel Haight is a science fiction fantasy and post-apocalyptic novel. The story immediately drew me within its adventure. Family and drug abuse are two popular themes inside this young adult read. Daniel’s writing is incredible. His main character, Jim, is a troubled teen. Jim’s mom gets him out of rehab to work with his dad. Then life everywhere becomes chaotic. The world is being destroyed and with both, his parents taken and gone…Jim and his sister must learn how to survive with what they have. Only…their supplies won’t last too much longer. Out in the sea…nowhere to go. Being on land is just as dangerous for them.

Flotilla brings out fear on every level. Biowarfare break-out back home on the mainland. Deadly shootings happening everywhere…and bad guys are coming after Jim and his sister due to secrets his dad kept. Suspense, intrigue, advanced technology make this an unforgettable novel. The scenes are three-dimensional. Characters are believable and Jim is the main voice of the story. How he and his sister, as well as the rest of humanity, will survive is something readers have to dig to find out…Overall, this was the most exciting and thrilling science fiction novel I have read in a while. I highly recommend Daniel Haight’s brilliant masterpiece to all.

Review:

Written Off by E.J. Copperman is definitely a must read for all readers as well as writers. Inside this hilarious yet serious novel, there is a serial killer out to kidnap and murder all mystery writers…this tale is highly intriguing and sucks readers in whole. The main character of this story so happens to be a mystery writer. Once she receives a call about a missing person’s case, Rachel has little time to waste before she’s next on the killer’s list. The storytelling is stunning…I couldn’t stop reading once I cracked open the book.

Written Off by E.J. Copperman has adventure, suspense, and laugh-out-loud moments that will keep readers hooked. The plot is all about the publishing industry and how one person didn’t hit it big…and because of that all hell breaks loose. People do crazy things when life doesn’t go their way. The serial killer within this novel usually takes the time to plan the kidnapping and the murder before, hand. But with the last kidnapped writer being a sleuth…the mistakes are bound to be made. A killer that poses under another identity that won’t be questioned…is the perfect disguise until details that were not released accidently slip out…but just as the main character, Rachel, is being used as bait, is slowly dying…will the killer get away with everything or will it finally be over? Every page was intense, funny, and well-done. I loved reading this title by E.J. Copperman and can’t wait to read the next exciting and mysterious adventure in this series!

Love Me If You Can by Shanice B. is  hot, sexy, and seductive. The writing takes readers deep into the drama high story. This urban romance is intense…it starts off with a woman who deals with her annoying baby daddy that doesn’t know when to quit.

I rooted for the two women as they kicked their men’s butt out to the curb.

Review:

Charmed by the Best 2 by J. Shanay is amazing! Her novel is just as hot and intense as the previous book. The set of characters has once again been brought together waiting for news that may decide their fates once again. Having a baby and being stuck in love with a past lover may set Chayne on a new adventure. The drama is juicy and addictive. As with the previous book, I still didn’t know what to expect nor when.  Charmed by the Best 2 is just that. Chayne has been charmed by the best…Devon. Devon still loves Chayne…his first love.  Sterling hopes that if the baby is his that he and Chayne can be a unit…but it all depends on the results and where Chayne’s heart truly lies.

Charmed by the Best 2 is an urban fiction drama that instantly pulled me into its depth and kept me there like a prisoner. The writing is well done and the characters are magnificently well-developed. J. Shanay continued to impress me as her story unfolded. The excitement and thrilling adventures in this urban romance led to me falling for the characters especially for Chayne and Devon. Life can be bumpy but it can also be smooth too. Overall, I highly recommend this, fast-paced action novel to readers everywhere. I promise you will be charmed by the best.

Charmed by the Best by J. Shanay is stunning. This urban drama fiction is packed with everything readers want. Action, suspense, and heat. J. Shanay introduces two characters that are so realistic that it’s amazing this novel is just a piece of fiction. There is Chayne.

Devon is the good looking sports guy that grows up near Chayne. They both go through similar family issues and are deeply in love with one another. However, time takes them away from one another time and time again. Every time they meet they feel the pull on their hearts. Tragedy soon strikes and leaves them separated once again…as life goes by Chayne and Devon go their own ways.

Her characters and their emotional journeys are enticing. They are easy to connect to on every level. This urban fiction is definitely three dimensional, and I highly recommend it to others.

Review:

A Thuggish, Ruggish Love 3 by Regina Swanson is superb. Yes, it contains adult content. The sex is steamy hot and everywhere. The attraction among the characters is enough to heat any night. There’s abuse, drama, and romance. The suspense of what is and will happen to Blaze, Xavier, Mackie, and Aleah is stunning. I never knew what to expect. The romance between couples is high and messy. Emotions, as well as hearts, are on the line. Decisions will have to be made. Once again, I found myself deeply lured within Regina Swanson’s brilliant series. A Thuggish, Ruggish Love 3 is perfect. It realistically portrays the urban street life and the hostility between law enforcement and the thugs. Life isn’t all about happily ever afters and starting a family. It’s about finding yourself, being true to yourself and finding a way to survive what one has been dealt with…I enjoyed following the set of interesting characters as well as news ones. The story comes to life with this writer’s talent on every page. Overall, I highly recommend this latest novel by Regina Swanson.

Review: China Doll

 

Synopsis:

Jana Lane is back on Broadway in 1984—starring in a murder mystery. Life imitates art when members of the company are murdered. As Jana investigates, it’s clear she may be the next victim. Complicating matters, is Jana’s uncontrollable infatuation, with her leading man, gorgeous and muscular Off-Broadway actor Peter Stevens. Will Jana find the murderer before the curtain comes down on her?

Rating: 5 stars

Review:

This is the fourth brilliant mystery novel series by Joe Cosentino. China Doll is a new broadway play that Jana stars in…however, this time…she brings two family members into acting. Her young son BJ and a cousin,  who will do anything to get into acting. Then there’s a male actor who is battling AIDs and only two others besides Jana Lane support him. The others don’t want him to continue acting. Then there’s the new babysitter that Jana Lane has hired to watch over BJ. Everyone thinks he’s gay but he claims that he’s not…is he really trying to convince himself or others? Joe Cosentino also brings in extra drama with a hot male actor that causes Jana Lane to remind herself that she’s a married woman. Drama is high and as the broadway play continues so does the tension of the actors. No matter where the famous Jana Lane goes…there’s always a murder case to be solved. Joe Cosentino never disappoints…his novels are superb. I find myself addicted to each story that he writes and once he writes a new book the characters end up being added to my all-time favorite lists. There’s plenty of action, intrigue, and murder to go around. A talented writer whose words constantly draws me in every time. I look forward to the next masterfully woven story in this series. Jana Lane is definitely a new female sleuth that should be on everyone’s reading list. Overall, I highly recommend China Doll to readers worldwide.

Review:

Onyx Webb Series (Book 5) by both Richard Fenton and Andrea Waltz continues to have it all. Suspense, intrigue, and murder as well as romance, ghosts, and revenge…are all inside each and every book. I have fallen in love with the Onyx Webb Series. It’s addictive. Characters such as Onyx, Declan, Koda and many others bring a variety and freshness that readers like myself don’t get when reading any other fictional series. There are a serial killer…tons of money involved, and a whole lot of drama that kept me deeply lured on every page. The plot as always is fast-paced and full of action. Never a dull moment inside this series. The characters are always doing something that releases a chain of events that affect others in the tale. Greed, love, and an emotional journey that has once again blown me away. Both Richard Fenton and Andrea Waltz are the best writers when it comes to hooking readers’ attention and entertaining them throughout every page as well as every book.

I didn’t know who the murderers were until the end when Libby Kirsch let out the truth. The knowledge of a news station and how they operate was amazing!

Review: Mission Hill

 

Synopsis:

Abby Endicott is chief of the District Attorney’s homicide unit in Boston, where she investigates and prosecutes the city’s most dangerous killers. A member of Mission Hill’s elite, and a graduate of the Winsor school and then Harvard Law, the prosecutor’s office is not the prestigious job that would have been expected of her. She has been known to change into an evening gown amidst bodies in the morgue. She loves her job, and is committed to it, refusing all pressure to quit from her upper-crust parents or threats from the city’s most ruthless killers. But among Abby’s many secrets is her longtime affair with fellow prosecutor Tim Mooney, a married father of one.

One night, Abby is awakened very late by a phone call from her favorite detective, who reports that there has been a horrific murder but is vague about the specifics. When she arrives at the crime scene and discovers the identity of the victim, Abby knows the terror and tragedy are only beginning.

In Mission Hill, debut novelist Pamela Wechsler delivers a gripping and very human portrayal of a woman who will stop at nothing to find the truth, even if it challenges everything she believes about justice.

Rating: 5 stars

Review:

Mission Hill by Pamela Wechsler is one of the most complex novels I have read yet. Readers will find out that this new title has everything a reader could want. The sense of danger, excitement, and romance. This, is the first novel, in a new series, by Pamela Wechsler. A nail gripping legal thriller, that will forever lure readers to her novel. Things seem to go well for the main character until one crime scene has it all falling apart…

Inside this stunning and brilliantly well-written story, readers will meet one woman who defies all other leading protagonists. Rules…are something, Abby Endicott ignores or makes up as she goes. A strong lady, who is in charge of the DA’s Homicide Unit seems to be handling life great…and then a crime has been committed which will leave her secrets coming undone. Mission Hill reminds me of Miss Fisher in a way. A modern woman whom many would tell not to become what she is and yet she still does to everyone’s dismay. Just like Miss Fisher, Abby Endicott, breaks the rules and goes out to do what she wants. Danger follows Abby every step of the way. I really enjoyed reading this title. Following the murder investigation and trial that Abby takes over is incredible. Readers will easily connect with her and be begging for the next fun filled adventure by Pamela Wechsler.

Review: Gaikokujin – The Story

 

Synopsis:

外黒人 is a spiritual rag, to riches adventure. I have been blessed to live a ‘storybook life’ but not in any glamorous way. Writing this book has allowed me to examine my role as a person of color—which I refer to as ‘melanin-rich’—in a society which has proven itself to be hostile toward non-Caucasian people. Because this is part memoir, part historical treatise, and part survivor’s guide, it is my intention to stretch the parameters of a conventional novel.

In Japanese, the word Gai-koku-jin, literally meaning outside-country-person; i.e.  the foreigner, is traditionally written as「外国人」. I, however, am coining terminology by replacing the middle character with「黒」, which is pronounced identically but means ‘black’ instead of country. Not only does this symbolize my own cultural perspective, but it also represents a set of circumstances which is not limited to any race or country.

Book 1 of this trilogy is told through the eyes of a confused child. A stranger in my own home, like so many neglected children, I found a surrogate family in the street—mainly at our neighborhood basketball courts. After learning how to ‘make a dollar out of fifteen cents,’ I was headed down a tried-and-true path for disaster until, ironically, a Beast and a Serpent came to my rescue.

Rating: 5 stars

Review:

Gaikokujin-The Story by Taknan Amarn is one powerfully yet captivating story. A novel like this is a must read. Taknan Amarn gives his readers a story rich in culture, history,  and philosophy. His characters give readers a show not tell, version of life and how society operates. Society doesn’t always operate in a way to benefit all people.  Those of color and gender were mistreated in ways none of us can expect. That and the issues of poverty didn’t help these groups much either.

Gaikokujin – The Story is told by the Taknan Amarn’s point of view. His fictional world allows readers to see a side of the world most of us choose to ignore. Society’s norms take control of us like the Devil having complete control over what we say or do. Readers will follow a survivor’s journey through these troubling times. A refreshing and symbolic novel that readers will enjoy reading. I look forward to reading more by this talented writer and highly recommend his novel to readers worldwide.

Review: Beyond the Milky Way

 

Synopsis:

Are we alone?

Three astronauts go to space in search of a planet that probably has water—one of the basic elements for humanity to survive. Do they find it? What else do they find? They encounter something—something strange—beyond their wildest imaginations, and their mission-to-explore becomes a mission-to-survive.

They experience something that makes them question their beliefs. All the things they had taken for granted, everything they had seen and learned, don’t seem to apply any longer.

Something happens along the way that makes them yearn to come back to Earth. After all, home is where the heart is.

This is not just another science fiction. Rather, it will make you question your own beliefs—may they be scientific, religious, political, or something else.

In the first installment of The Galaxy Series, find out about the strange world they discover.

Rating: 5 stars

Review: 

Beyond the Milky Way by Aithal is a stunning masterpiece. Readers will love this novel. It begins with an adventure that will leave readers questioning everything they know. Beyond the Milky Way is not a science fiction fantasy novel but one that instantly pulls readers in from the first page until the last. Readers won’t be released from this creative yet brilliantly well-written story until they reach the ending. Three brave individuals dare to go on a mission that no other has been on before. Now, they are tested and their understanding, as well as their feelings, will have forever changed by the time they reach home if they do get back.

Aithal has woven a thought provoking novel. One that readers will be remembering for a long time. The good news is that he has more novels after this one to satisfy the thirst for more adventure. Readers will be awed and speechless as they keep turning the pages. This is indeed one action and a thrill ride that readers won’t want to miss. Overall, I highly recommend reading, Beyond the Milky Way, to readers everywhere.

Woohoo! Book 2 of the Robotics Faction is here. Liberation’s Desire by Wendy Lynn Clark is a hot, steamy romance that readers everywhere will want to get the hands on. Inside of this well-developed story, readers are taken on a journey that questions everything. Questions one’s true motives for why and what is happening and then what is happening with their own feelings. Liberation’s Desire will only further readers’ desire to read more brilliant adventures by Wendy Lynn Clark.

Liberation’s Desire brings us two major protagonists who are having to fight everything. Fight off the ones that are chasing them, fight off the why’s, and most of all fight off the instant pull of desire that is equally felt. There’s no returning point once they let their romance skyrocket. But there’s the Faction and then the rogue who severed Yves from the Faction and the danger is close behind them. Can they make it? I absolutely love reading Wendy Lynn Clark’s amazing novels.  Each of her novels will only leave readers waiting for more. The characters are out of this world and irresistibly believable. Readers will fall in love with Wendy’s plot, characters, and her way with words. It’s not like reading…it’s more like actually being there and experiencing it all first hand. Overall, I highly recommend Liberation’s Desire to all.

Danger and suspense hanging in the air, causing a shiver to run down the backs of readers as the characters race against everything to make it back home safe. Or will they?

Thomas Thorpe’s novel, Lost In Tanganyika, is by far one of the greatest reads I have stumbled across. Not only is his story highly entertaining but it also, shows readers the real scary truth about the world. Slavery, war, and even cannibals can be found inside this read. Readers will be left on the edge of their seats as they turn the pages wondering what happens next. The characters, William and Elizabeth as well as their new friend were perfect for this eye opening read. I can’t imagine Lost In Tanganyika without these three believable characters. They make the story pop to life and leave readers falling from their seats into the book itself. Beware, the heart pounding fear and visual scenes will take you on an incredible journey. Overall, I highly recommend this novel to readers world wide.

It isn’t until the very ending where Ice will experience the biggest surprise and consequence of all. Readers will be left in suspense as to what happens next after Ice gets the wind of his doings.

Hot explicit sex scenes are found throughout this well-developed and well-written novel. Darick Spears is a new author on his way launching novels, that will grab readers in fast and leave them wondering. I highly recommend this to readers who like sexy, intense, and powerful reads.
