Monday Mini – Hopeless by Colleen Hoover @colleenhoover

By Colleen Hoover Hopeless (1st Frist Edition) [Paperback] - Colleen Hoover

New York Times Bestselling Author Colleen Hoover is an author all romance lovers will want on their reading list.

 

Hopeless (Hopeless, #1)

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

I won this signed first edition paperback and was delighted. I have read Colleen Hoover’s work before and feel she will not let me down in Hopeless about a seventeen year old girl and her first love.

 

The first guy she felt something for and…

He’s a dropout, he’s moody, he’s got a temper and…he’s just…Hopeless.

When they lay on the airport runway and gaze at the stars it brought back memories of Mr Wonderful and I laying on the tennis court at Cape Cod and stargazing ourselves.

I loved it, but the way it was written made it seem like the characters were older.

 

Colleen Hoover’s writing makes the story unfold with fun bantering dialogue in an easy reading story as they discover each other and we watch the complex characters grow and develop.

Creature Feature Review – The Jersey Devil by Hunter Shea @huntershea1

The Jersey Devil - Hunter Shea

The Jersey Devil is not my first Hunter Shea novel, nor will it be my last. His creature features are packed with horrifying thrills and chills that entertain me for hours and I always hate to see the story end.

 

I borrowed this paperback copy from Laura, my sister at fuonlyknew.

 

ALSO, be sure and check out Hunter Shea’s bio. I find him VERY interesting and I think you will too.

 

28475212

 

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

I love creature features and The Jersey Devil by Hunter Shea is a gripping and terrifying horror tale that unrolled like movie film as the images flitted through my mind. I am an avid watcher of B movies and this cover told me all I needed to know.

 

Boompa knew the legend of The Jersey Devil was true and his family had been waiting…waiting…waiting…knowing this day would come.

 

I love that Boompa, a farmer in his eighties, used a computer to keep aware of any monster sightings. The Willet family had prepared for this moment their entire lives and they will fight to the death.

 

I can’t imagine being in the woods and I mean so far back in the boonies that even the people that live there are off the grid…dangerous…Imagine how dark it is, how every rustle of leaves or crack of a branch leaves you shivering in fear. I have sat in my back yard, very late at night photographing the moon and freaked myself out listening to the sounds of the night, looking over my shoulder wondering if it is really some harmless lizard or…

 

The characters all have their purpose, some heroes and some not so much, and some who will not make it out alive and I felt Hunter Shea disposed of them in a way that made me feel it was okay.

 

So…look to the side, look to the back, look below, look above…

 

This action packed legend comes to life early with bloody, savage, gripping and terrifying horror. These super charged monsters will take you to a gruesome place where no one is safe. You won’t want to miss it.

Assassin + Serial Killer = Come Hell or High Water by Britney King @britneyking_britney

Come Hell Or High Water: A Twisted Psychological Thriller: A Twisted Psychological Thriller (The Water Trilogy Book 3) - Britney King
I love the fabulously eerie cover for Come Hell or High Water, the finale for a stupendous trilogy by Britney King.
 
 
 Author: Britney King
Title: Come Hell or High Water
Series: Water Trilogy #3
Release Date: April 19, 2017
.

MY REVIEW

 

I didn’t think Kate could get any more twisted, but I was so wrong. Her desire to know drives her to do unspeakable, twisted and perverted things. Her actions constantly amaze me, and not in a good way. Where our anger and thoughts of doing something bad to someone may flit through our minds, Kate acts on hers.

This latest ‘event’ cannot end well and I don’t know what she’s thinking. She’s fooling herself. People like her can’t have friends. I’m not even sure she can have a husband and kids and I wonder how this story could possibly end with a happy ever after.

If Kate and Jude could live in a sexual frenzy, could they be happy, content with a life in suburbia? Can a serial killer ever be happy? Does killing become an end all, must have, like the air they breathe?

This trilogy has been an amazing journey into the mind of assassins and serial killers, and what motivates them to do the things they do. Sometimes I think I am a little twisted because I loved reading about Kate and Jude so much, but then I think about the author that writes it. LOL

Kate starts out calm and in control…for now, and Jude will settle for that…for now. But what happens the **** hits the fan and Jude fears that more than anything.

And their children…Do serial killers breed serial killers?

Britney King’s in depth descriptions of people, whether it’s the main characters, their petty, drunken neighbors, or the woman in the dress shop treating people like crap because she hates her petty life

We get a glimpse into their past through flashbacks, but that is no excuse for them doing the things they do.

Seeing all books need to be read to follow the story, I don’t want to spoil anything, so all I can say is Kate and Jude are seriously ****** up and I can only wonder how they haven’t managed to kill each other

I love the illustrations heading each chapter, hinting at what’s to come.

After Kate and Jude have sex, Jude’s thoughts are: I think about what we’ve just done, how we’re so broken and yet we fit just right. Then why all the problems? Why can’t Kate be happy? Content?

I started to get bored with the killing (LOL), chatting, kids…and that’s when Britney King throws in a fantastic twist. She lulls me in with a sense of complacency then slams it home.

I have been trying to figure out how Britney King will wrap up The Water Trilogy and couldn’t wrap my mind around a happy ending, but she came up with one that fit very nicely and I can rest…

This twisted, dark suspense thriller series is one you won’t want to miss!

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of Come Hell or High Water by Britney King.

Laughs and Tears – Review for Outsider by Becca Campbell @beccajcampbell

Outsider: The Flawed Series Book Two (Volume 2) - Becca J. Campbell, Jessie Sanders, Steven Novak

Becca Campbell hooked me with Empath, The Flawed Series Book I, and I was super excited when a won a copy of The Outsider, Book II.

 

 

I am always interested in who does covers for the stories I love to read.

Great job, Steven Novak. Hop on over and check him out.

 

Outsider (Flawed, #2)

 

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Becca Campbell has outdone herself with the fabulous Flawed Series and Outsider, Book II, just keeps me craving more. If you love to get lost in magical realism, where the characters tug at your heartstrings and you feel their pain, you will want these books on your reading list.

 

All his life, Josh felt like an Outsider.

 

Why were Josh’s family and friends empowered with supernatural abilities and not him? As many supernatural books as I have read, I think he is being saved for something special. Am I right? I shall have to read on to find out and so will you.

 

Alex came into his life. Her mom was too busy for her, her friends…out of sight, out of mind, so it’s time to make new ones. She’s not a plain Jane, she just doesn’t feel the need for makeup and likes her casual clothes. Alex gets along well with men and has few women friends. That makes it easy for me to relate to her, because I am the same way.

 

When Nic met Alex, it wasn’t what he anticipated and I love it. His power of captivation didn’t work this time. LOL When he poured water over his eyes, I laughed even louder.

Ah…young love and longing.

 

We have college teenagers, hanging out, some of them in a band, some of them with superpowers. It starts out with teenage angst and doesn’t take long for some action and danger to rear its ugly head.

 

Alex had no idea she had made an enemy and I see big trouble on the horizon.

 

OH MAN Becca! WTF are you doing? How could you? And, as if it wasn’t already bad enough…THE DOOR!

 

The blend of reality and fantasy, with engrossing characters who are growing and developing, becoming more complex as the story unfolds, ramps up to a white knuckle ending and I must have more.

A Book For All Ages – She’s Like A Rainbow by Eileen Colucci #EileenColucci

She's like a Rainbow - Eileen Colucci

She’s Like A Rainbow by Eileen Colucci is outside my comfort zone, but every now and then I need to shake myself up.

 

I have read so much murder and death, that they all began to run together and I needed a break. This ray of sunshine fit the bill.

She's like a Rainbow

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

She’s Like A Rainbow by Eileen Colucci is an original and creative story that illustrates how we are more similar than different, with our own insecurities and problems dogging us. Teens and adults alike can learn a thing or two from Reema.

 

I had been looking for books outside my normal reading and when Eileen offered me a copy, I accepted. The cover was what first drew me in, but when I read the blurb I thought it would be a fun story.

 

The allusion to the legend of the White Buffalo fits Reema’s life. The baby starts out white and changes color when he gets older. Most of us are a collection of nationalities.

 

 Reema is a strong and determined young girl who refuses to give up on what she believes to be the truth. She shows love, patience and persistence as she seeks the answers to her questions.

 

All the childhood angst, plus…

 

The writing is wonderful and touches on many issues, such as being Muslim, and adoption.

 

I would highly recommend this story to people of all ages.

Giveaway & Review – The Fixer by Jill Amy Rosenblatt @JillARosenblatt @partnersincr1me

The Fixer: The Killing Kind (The Fixer - Katerina Mills) (Volume 2) - Jill Amy Rosenblatt

MY REVIEW

 

Kat’s a Fixer. You have a people problem, just give her a call and she will get take care of it.

 

Illegally…maybe.

 

Then…why is she dating Detective Ryan Kelllan, whose search for answers in the murder of Felicia Reynolds touches awfully close to home and her secret.

 

The more work she does, the deeper she gets. She witnessed a murder. Her father is being hunted and they think she has answers.

 

Bad guys…good guys…they all want her.

 

Danger surrounds her…does anyone ever get out?

 

And then there’s Alexander Winter. I have a picture in my mind of this fascinating character and he is someone who intrigues me. He leaves me wiith more questions than answers.

 

The Fixer was thought provoking and I enjoy mulling over the questions left to answer after having read a novel.

 

Have you ever wondered how you got into a situation? And how far is too far.?

 

Pretending to be someone else can be a fun adventure, but what do you do when the bill comes due?

 

A little more sense of urgency and maybe some more details of the incidents and her feelings would bump up my rating, but one thing is for sure…I want more of her story which doesn’t end here.

Review – The Rising by Heather Graham & Jon Land @jondland #HeatherGraham

The Rising: A Novel - Heather Graham, Jon Land

No need to think twice when it comes to The Rising by Heather Graham and Jon Land.

 

The Rising

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Buckle your seat belt because this is going to be a very bumpy ride.

 

Two of my must read authors, Heather Graham and Jon Land, have come together to create to create a fabulous science fiction  thriller in The Rising.

 

Alex is special and he doesn’t know it. He suffers a football injury, winding up in the hospital, and the action and adventure begin.

 

As Alex, Sam, Raiff and Donati are drawn together, forces are determined to stop them.

The Trackers want him. The Watchers and Guardians protect him.

 

And don’t we always have someone that wants to rule the world and will do anything to accomplish it? Villains are fascinating, to me. The worse they are, the more I love them.

Scientists beware. Your actions can change the world!

 

Particle accelerators, quantam space, wormholes, doorways into space, space time continuum…

 

This Terminator like suspense story has everything you would want in a science fiction fantasy…action, mystery, thrills and a story line that will spur your imagination and give you hours of reading pleasure.

 

There is more to come and I think H G Wells has nothing on Heather Graham and Jon Land. I can hardly wait to go on the next adventure. …Take me away.

One Sentence Review – Just Different Devils by Jinx Schwartz @jinxschwartz

Just Different Devils (Hetta Coffey Series Book 7) - Jinx Schwartz

I picked up Just Different Devils by Jinx Schwartz from Amazon on a free day.

“A porposeful relationship.”

He’s Very, Very Hungry – Carnivore by Leigh Clark #LeighClark

Carnivore by Leigh Clark (1997-04-01) - Leigh Clark

I borrowed Carnivore by Leigh Clark from my sister, Laura, at fuonlyknew.

Horror at its Finest! Wrathbone by Jason Parent @AuthorJasParent

Wrathbone and Other Stories - Jason  Parent

Jason Parent writes some the best horror stories, so there was never any doubt that I would want to read Wrathbone.

 

Soooo…let’s step into his world and get our scare on.

 

Wrathbone

 

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

After reading Kealon Patrick Burke’s rousing recommendation and knowing from previous Jason Parent works, I’m eager to read this collection of short stories. The writing is  top notch, the evil ever present and the suspense…well you won’t forget these stories any time soon.

 

I will start with a review of the entire collection, and afterwords, give you a little taste of what’s to come.

 

I pictured the scenes as a movie unwinding in my mind’s eye, making me wonder, “How in the hell do you dream this stuff up, Jason?” Are you stoned on something?

 

Some of the horror is the subtle kind, others more blatant, but make no mistake, the terror takes the mind into insanity, and a thirst for blood.

 

One of the best horror anthologies I have ever read. Tension filled, upchucking moments, and I can’t believe I’m going to say this to you, but I couldn’t help but smile at a job well done.

She Won’t Stop Til She Finds Her Bestie – Shade by Marilyn Peake @marilynpeake

Shade - Marilyn Peake

Shade by Marilyn Peake is more than just a supernatural/paranormal mystery.

 

It is a look inside a trouble teenager’s life and how she more than rises to the challenge.

 

Shade (The Shade Series #1)

 

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Shade is a YA Paranormal mystery that includes some difficult subject matter, such as cutting and alcohol and drug abuse. More than anything it is the journey of Galactic Shade Griffin as she struggles with life and the danger and difficulties that cross her path.

 

A drug addict, a ghost, faeries, a troubled teen girl, her missing friend, a messed up mom, an amulet…will Shade be the hero she created in her graphic novel?

 

Shade has pretty much raised herself and hasn’t done too bad of a job, considering…no father and a mother who drank and drugged herself into oblivion.

 

Her mother moved them again, and things changed for Shade. She met Brandon Yates, a ghost that haunted their new home. When her best friend turns up missing, they band together to figure out the mystery.

 

More girls go missing…

 

I love how Shade struggles and grows to develop. I knew a girl who cut herself and I cannot stress how upset and sad I was for her. I could not understand how hurting yourself could make you feel better. Or maybe it was just so she could feel…something.

 

I love a good mystery and the paranormal is a nice touch. It adds an extra element I always appreciate. The danger rises and the the mystery is darker than Shade could have imagined. I have read of what can happen to girls who go missing and I fear how vulnerable the female species is…how unprepared and innocent we can be about the evil men do.

 

Marilyn can spin a wonderful tale that is easy to read and contains lovable characters that will wiggle their way into your heart. I would love to have Shade as my best friend too.

Amongst the dark, there is light.

In the tragic and sadness, there is hope and love.

Giveaway & Review – Southern Fried by Tonya Kappes @tonyakappes11 @dollycas

Southern Fried - Tonya Kappes


Southern Fried (A Kenni Lowry Mystery)
Cozy Mystery
2nd in Series
Henery Press (April 4, 2017)
Paperback: 252 pages
ISBN-13: 978-1635111873
Kindle ASIN: B01N212SJ8

 

MY REVIEW

 

Tonya Kappes had me laughing from the opening pages of Southern Fried, when  Kenni Lowry is shushing her ghost.

 

Kenni is the Sheriff of the small of Cottonwood and the ghost is her Grandfather. It was no surprise that she carried a gun, but there were those who frowned on her being the Sheriff.

Even though Cottonwood is a small town, the characters are far from being small.

 

The story contains funny quotes and unique characters that will have you smiling and laughing, and shaking your head.

“It’s hotter than a prostitute’s doorknob on pay day in here.”

Murder, the supernatural and humor are the norm in a Tonya Kappes novel.

 

There are plenty of suspects to keep me guessing, with some romance on the side and a lovable hound dog that, even though he’s not a guard dog, acts like one.

 

The small town of Cottonwood is like all small towns. Even with all the personality conflicts and disagreements, the people come together in the end.

 

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of Southern Fried by Tonya Kappes.

Investing Isobella is a creepy and unsettling story of a man’s careless decision that may cost him the thing most dear to him, until he makes an even dumber mistake that I revel in while my emotions go from anger and being super pissed off to a smile on my face and a sense of satisfaction at the end.

One Sentence Review – Books Are Magic – Margins by Edward Lorn @EdwardLorn

Margins - E. Lorn, Edward Lorn

Margins by Edward Lorn is not your typical love story, but…

 

It is short and sweet.

 

Margins

 

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY ONE SENTENCE REVIEW

 

Ms March owned Second Hand Books, loved the books as if they were her own children, and if you want a fun, and kinda sad love story and believe books are magic too, you will want to meet Jamie and Joe, by reading the fantasy short story Edward Lorn has written, called Margins.

GOODREADS BLURB:  Have you ever truly loved a book?

One day, while perusing the stacks of her favorite used bookstore, Jaime comes across a book by an author whom she’s never heard of. After an awkward encounter, she rushes home with A RENDEZVOUS WITH RICHARD in tow.

It’s in the margins that Jaime finds and falls for the mysterious Joe. Because A RENDEZVOUS WITH RICHARD isn’t a normal book. And MARGINS isn’t your average love story

#RomanticSuspense Review – Morgan’s Hunter by Cate Beauman @CateBeauman

Morgan's Hunter - Cate Beauman

Cate Beauman is a must read author for me.

 

I love romantic suspense and she is a top notch author with The Bodyguards of LA County series to her credit. I am eager to meet them all, and I will be happy to introduce you to therm…one by one.

 

I love the cover, the bright green catches my attention quickly, and the elements tell me the story inside will be an interesting one, involving murder and mystery.

 

Cover by Streetlight Graphic

 

Morgan's Hunter (The Bodyguards Of L.A. County, #1)

 

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

I cannot imagine how our brave men and women feel as they dodge IED’s and bullets in a foreign land, so…

 

When Hunter was at Jake’s side in Afghanistan, as he lay dying, Jake made Hunter promise to take care of Sarah and the baby.

 

Hunter had been injured himself and nightmares haunted his sleep.

 

Morgan didn’t hurt for money, but she worked hard anyway. She and her friends were the six Musketeeers and committed to their environmental work…until three are found murdered. She seeks answers with a vengeance.

 

She is a scientist doing wildlife research, not a fighter, so her dad’s solution…Ethan Cooke Security and Hunter is assigned to work with her.

 

This is my favorite type of reading. I do want a high degree of suspense and I  feel it throughout…waiting for the culprits to show themselves and the confrontation that will result. Making this mystery even harder to solve, is their location, alone in the wilderness.

 

Two strong personalities clash and the verbal foreplay begins. Sparks are flying from their first meeting. Of course, we knew this was coming. After all, Morgan’s Hunter is a romantic suspense, so I would be hugely disappointed if it didn’t.

 

Cate Beauman does a fabulous job of creating desire and painful denial, the characters not allowing themselves to act on their attraction. Their  denial creates it own suspense and anticipation as I wait for them to act on their feelings. I keep waiting for them to drop their guard and get it on.

 

I knew something would happen before they left the forest. I hate the way it happened, but it had to be that way. Sometimes Morgan acts like a spoiled brat and it makes me wonder about myself. I can be obstinate and cantankerous when someone tries to boss me around. Would I do that in her situation?

 

Greed, money, power…who knows what will cause a person to corrupt themselves.

The danger doesn’t end when I thought it would. I love that Cate kept me on pins and needles, sneaking in the last tidbits of goodness, choosing the time when I can take a breath and say, “OMG, What’s next?.”

 

This fabulous series stands alone and ranks high on my reading list. I can hardly wait to read more.

 

I voluntarily reviewed Morgan’s Hunter by Cate Beauman.
