Will her emotions be the Death of her? Empath by Becca Campbell @BeccaJCampbell

Empath (Flawed, #1) - Becca J. Campbell

I saw Becca Campbell’s influences and I found a kindred spirit, so when I was given the opportunity to read Empath, Book One, and the entire Flawed Series, I jumped all over it.

 

This will definitely be a series I finish!

 

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Empath by Becca Campbell hooked me from the opening pages. I was quickly drawn into Jade’s world and the characters became my friends too…most of them.

 

Jade walked into the classroom and it confirmed her reason for online classes. The feelings bombarded her…anger, attraction, excitement. She struggled to maintain a calm appearance. Were they her feelings, or someone else’s?

 

‘She believed in God…Why had he given her this FLAW?’

 

Everything changed for her when she met Logan. He calmed her.

 

Logan, is a professor at the college she was attending and he is a loner, for reasons of his own. He knew he should stay away from her, but we know how that goes. Becca Campbell’s writing drew me to him immediately. There is something special about him and I was as drawn to him as Jade was. She wondered…is he special too, is this the beginning of something wonderful for her, could she have a relationship?

 

Ethan…Becca draws a vivid picture of him in my mind. I do love a good villain and Ethan fits that picture perfectly. He is a psychopath, feels no fear and has powers of his own. He collects snakes and they are his tools of torture. Serial killers collect trophies and his are especially heinous. His thoughts and fantasies are EVIL, and they are about Jade. He MUST have her.

 

Cam, poor Cam. He has a huge crush on Jade and I wonder what will become of him. Since a snowboarding accident, he has blackouts that cause a sense of deja vu. I love that Becca describes his senses in depth…every sight, sound and smell, no matter how small.

 

Jade has more friends with unique powers of their own and they all hold a special place in her world. Why were they chosen? Maybe they weren’t FLAWS. Maybe they were gifts.

 

When Jade meets ‘Bigfoot’ I was not surprised. I expected it and had hoped it would happen. I think I know his name. Will I be right? We will have to wait and see.

 

I like how the romance is slow developing, subtle. Do you remember your first love…the butterflies in your stomach, the heat of a blush rising to the surface of your face, the excitement of even a glimpse of him/her, the teasing and playfulness of a conversation? It reads like real life and that makes the story even more believable. The triangle is not really a triangle, but Cam feels like it is.

 

I guess you can tell I fell in love with the characters. They may be young, but the danger surrounds them as they go about the normal business of life. I usually write more about the action in a novel and the characters just happen to be in the way. Not so with Empath. I am now heavily involved in their lives and will see it through to the end.

 

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Empath by Becca Cambell.

Giveaway & Review for Onyx Webb by Andrea Waltz & Richard Fenton @OnyxWebb

Onyx Webb: Book Three: Episodes 7, 8, 9 by Richard Fenton (2015-10-22) - Richard Fenton & Andrea Waltz

I am so glad I already have Book III, so I didn’t have to wait to find out what was coming next. Each book has gotten better, for me. I am hooked and this is one series I will read to the end.

 

Started right out with a murder. How can I not love that?

 

So much action and the suspense climbs to a new level. Sometimes it seems the characters have no redeeming qualities, but the bad they do is forced on them, other times they feel obligated, want revenge or to avenge the wrong done to someone they know. I feel I need to let go of my attempts to judge them and try to walk a mile in their shoes. 

 

And now for the tragedy…

 

OMG I can’t believe the authors did that!!! Fabulous, horrific! I am so sad for…

 

The developing story has reached a mind blowing level…engrossing, nailbiting, sit on the edge of your seat intense reading…unputdownable…

 

It is rare that I read a series that keeps getting better and better but Andrea Waltz and Richard Fenton have far surpassed my expectations with Onyx Web and I can’t ask for any more than that!

Giveaway & Review for Onyx Webb by Andrea Waltz & Richard Fenton @OnyxWebb

Onyx Webb (Book One: Episodes 1, 2 & 3) - Andrea Waltz, Richard Fenton

The tagline on the cover of Onyx Webb hooked me – Think life is precious now? Just wait until you’re dead – and I had to read Book I by Richard Fenton and Andrea Waltz. I am just hoping I made the right decision, because there are more books to come and I will not learn the ending here.

 

Onyx Webb is a paranormal thriller that will have you questioning the most important things in “life”. If you are a fan of character driven stories, this one is for you.

 

Richard Fenton and Andrea Waltz do a wonderful job of building complex characters that are well developed and I quickly found my favorites and the villains. As each characters story grows, so does my interest.

 

We have kidnappers and serial killers, ghosts and visions. What is real? You will have to read Onyx Webb to find out for yourself.

 

There is more than one villain walking the streets and you never know who you can trust. People are not always what they seem.

 

Onyx is not your average child and her life took a turn for the worst when she met him.

Men – they can be the life of you or the death of you.

 

Onyx Webb, Book I laid a solid foundation.There is so much going on, that I feel I will not be able to rest until I know the whole story. Thank goodness Book II is out and waiting for me to grab a copy of my own.

Giveaway & Review for Onyx Webb by Andrea Waltz & Richard Fenton @OnyxWebb

Onyx Webb: Book Two - Andrea Waltz, Richard Fenton

I am excited to continue the Onyx Web series. The writing style, with each person telling their story had me confused in the beginning, but now that I am getting the hang of it, I am loving it.

 

The combination of mystery and murder, hauntings and ghosts, the paranormal and supernatural, keeps the action and suspense moving right along.

 

The complex characters have become familiar to me and I am very curious and concerned for their well being. They all have flaws that make some of their decisions seem harsh and wrong.

 

I knew someone would die. I thought it would be Onyx and I sure didn’t see the authors taking the route they did. Great job throwing that twist in there and I think they will have many more surprises in store for me.

 

I am loving Katherine, and her solution to the horrific goings on at the orphanage seem like the only way to go.

 

The story gets heavier, more complicated, and I get more and more involved with each page I read.

Vigilantism With A Twist – She Bites by #RogerArsht & #CaitlinHawker

She Bites - Caitlin Hawker, Roger Arsht

She Bites by Roger Arsht & Caitlin Hawker has such a cool cover and fantastic blurb, there is no way I could pass on this vigilante thriller novel. I would like to thank Roger, Caitlin and Archway Publishing for the opportunity to read and review She Bites.

 

She Bites has a bit of a twist, so keep reading to find out why.

 

Does this cover talk to you as loud as it talks to me?

 

She Bites

 

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

She Bites by Roger Arsht & Caitlin Hawker is my kind of thriller. I am always on the lookout for a new twist to  a familiar story and they supply a fantastic one.

 

She Bites is action packed from the get-go and I love it. Dog fighting is a cruel ‘sport’ and I do not understand how anyone can get any enjoyment from treating an animal that only wants to please with such cruelty.

 

Want to take a walk on the dark side…read on.

 

Dr Robyn Sparks is not only a veterinarian, but a vigilante, doling out punishment to animal abusers. Having critters in a book adds a special little something for me and increases my enjoyment.

 

I love that Robyn Sparks cares so much for animals that she will stand up for them when others don’t. She is a strong, determined woman, and after my own heart.

 

She wants them to feel the pain and she dishes it out with a vengeance. She is a female Dexter.

 

Would I go that far? Would you?

 

Have you pissed her off? Wellllll, if you have, she will be paying you a visit and She Bites. It WILL be hazardous to your health!

 

When Jack Williams, a detective with his own issues, comes into her life, it becomes even more complicated.

 

Two damaged souls are drawn together…by a dog. Their terrors may be different, but their motives are the same.

 

Is one bad and the other good? Yin and yang?

 

When dealing with vigilantism, moral questions are raised.

 

Justice…is it legal…illegal? What would happen if everyone took the law into their own hands?

 

I don’t see how this can end well, but I want it to.

 

The writing makes the story flow smoothly and the suspense is a nail biter. How can he not figure out what is really going on with her? How can she keep her secret? Will the authors be able to put their thinking caps on and come up with an ending that I will be happy with, yet find ‘believable?’ That you will find ‘believable? All I can say is…you will have to read it for yourself to find out.

 

I love it, will highly recommend it, and I will be looking for more of their work.

 

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of She Bites from Roger Arsht, Caitlin Hawker and Archway Publishing.

Bah…Humbug by Tony Bertauski @tonybertauski

Humbug (The Unwinding of Ebenezer Scrooge): A Science Fiction Adventure - Tony Bertauski

I have been reading Tony Bertauski’s Christmas stories since the very beginning and have loved each and every one, so I was eager to get my hands on Humbug.

 

 

Humbug: The Unwinding of Ebenezer Scrooge (Claus, #4)

 

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Fantastic twist on a familiar tale.

 

Tony Bertauski has come away with another winner in Humbug. This is one of those books that is hard to review without giving away all the goodies inside.

 

You may think you know the story, but when Tony Bertauski spins a tale, he creates a world of his own, original, unique and highly creative.

 

I immediately thought steampunk because of all the technology involved, but cyberpunk will do just fine.

 

Ebenezer is constantly riding around his castle on a Segway. He is overweight and a bit lazy. He wants what he wants when he wants it and expects his androids to deliver. He doesn’t leave his castle and doesn’t want any human contact. No one knows what he looks like because he projects a created image when he talks ‘face to face’.

 

At times I felt like Ebenezer got what he deserved and other times I felt sorry for him. After all, we don’t always know what happens to shape a person into who they have become.

 

We do travel to the future, visit the present and go back to the past to find out his story.

The twists and turns kept me entertained and I surely never saw the end coming. I loved it.

One Sentence Review – Leave Tomorrow Behind by Judy Clemens @judyclemens1 @PPPress

Leave Tomorrow Behind: A Stella Crown Mystery - Judy Clemens

I won Leave Tomorrow Behind by Judy Clemens and want to thank her and Poisoned Pen Press for this fun, farm fresh cozy.

 

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

There is more than manure in the pile and the comical dialogue with the diverse characters like Stella, a Harley riding, tattooed woman with a distinct sense of right and wrong, made this a fun and relaxing romance that is a part of a stand alone series.

One Sentence Review – Before I Wake by Rachel Vincent #RachelVincent

Before I Wake - Rachel Vincent

I won a signed copy from fiktshun some time ago and even though this is Book VI of The Soul Screamers series, I don’t feel it affected my enjoyment of Before I Wake.

Check out this gorgeous cover.

 

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Kaylee struggles to find her ‘place’ in this new world of the undead…reapers, extractors, necromancers…she wonders how she will fill the minutes, hours, days…and I loved following her in her struggles to kill the demon that haunts her, following her deeper and deeper in this wonderful tale of death and ‘life’, with well written twists and turns that kept me going, though I was disappointed not to find out how it all ends.

Giveaway & Review – Threading The Needle by Gabriel Valjan @GValjan @NouveauWriter

Threading the Needle - Gabriel Valjan

I was drawn into the Roma Series because of the fabulous covers and the storyline.

It made me think of Kathy Reichs and the the TV series, Bones, with her forensic anthropology, only for a character that specializes in forensic accounting.

We continue our adventure in Milan, Italy and bullets will fly.

.threading-the-needle

 

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

The Roma Series continues in Threading The Needle by Gabriel Valjan. I am excited to see what Bianca and her band of cohorts will encounter next in Milan, Italy.

 

We are back with some familiar characters and the stakes are higher than ever. Conspiracy is alive and well.

 

The infighting between the police for territory and jurisdiction and the political machinations dog down their investigation into the murders and mystery. Politics is a dirty business and heads will fall, bodies too.

 

Gotta be pretty sharp to run the gauntlet and find the answers.

 

A little manipulation can be in order, and it does keep me on the hook as I try to figure out why they do what they do sometimes..

 

As the mystery unfolds, I think Bianca, a forensic accounting cyber nerd, has the answers, but…

 

Sometimes there is so much going on, I lose track of where I’m going. Am I purposely being mislead so I can’t find the answers?

 

Is it just me that I feel like I am being schooled rather than on a journey for my own entertainment? If you enjoy step by step police procedurals and some a glimpse into Italy’s history, this is for you.

 

I love the concept of this series so much, I wonder why I am having such difficulty with it. Is it because of the location…Italy and all that entails, their customs and history?

 

I took a little time and read other things between the books, but to see if it makes a difference, I will be diving right into Turning To Stone, Book IV. I believe these books can stand alone, but if you want to know all the details of the continuing characters, start at the beginning.

Memories From The 70’s – False Starts by Ken La Salle @KenLaSalle

False Starts: Mistakes & Missteps Growing up in the 70s - Ken La Salle, Ken La Salle, Ken La Salle

Ken La Salle is an amazing author that dips his feet into many genres.

 

I have enjoyed everything I have read by him, so to get a glimpse into what makes him tick is an opportunity I can’t pass up.

 

Are you ready to take a blast to the past…The 1970’s coming up.

 

False Starts: Mistakes & Missteps Growing Up In The 70s

 

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

Normally I am getting lost in make believe, but now and then I feel a need to gain insight into the real world, and to learn more about an author that I enjoy is an opportunity I can’t pass up.

 

I have read several of Ken La Salle’s wonderful, wacky and creepy books, so to learn where all that talent came from is something I was more than happy to do.

 

A box of memories started this journey.

 

“It was the hippest of times. It was the funkiest of times. It was the 1970s.”

 

What would your box of memories hold?

 

In False Starts, Ken La Salle shares his life during the 70s. Do you remember what you were doing?

 

His talk of TV and music strikes home to me. A lot of people think the 60s was a time of change, but the 70s brought so many more options for our viewing and listening pleasure. Do you remember Hot Wheels, 45s, or the Smother’s Brothers, who were only on one season because they were too disrespectful?

 

Ken La Salle grew up poor with his mom and siblings. I cannot understand from personal experience the lack of enough food, going hungry and no clothes to wear. It wasn’t like I had a lot, but I had what was needed and an occasional goodie or two.

 

It’s hard to feel sad for Ken when I was reading the book, because of his writing style. Is it a positive spin he puts on it or is it his drive to find what he was good at, what would work for him and make his life a good one. I find myself nodding and smiling as I read along sharing similar memories.

 

He finds those moments of light and happiness that shine through the darkness.

 

I thoroughly enjoyed this trip down memory lane and getting to know an author I plan on following for a long time.  I think it is because of his upbringing that he is able to write so well in very different genres with his humorous bent shining through the written words.

 

As long as you are moving forward in life, it can appear to you as though it were a series of False Starts.

 

I can only imagine what fun it would be to listen to this in as an audiobook., which is available.

 

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of False Starts from Ken La Salle.

The Ground Shook – Seismic Crimes by Chrys Fey @ChrysFey

Seismic Crimes - Chrys Fey

I was super eager to get my hands on Seismic Crimes by Chrys Fey.

 

I have enjoyed her stories and I got to name a character in this one.

I can hardly wait to meet Jackson Storm.

Amazon Goodreads

Seismic Crimes by Chrys Fey

Publisher:  Wild Rose Press

Cover design:  Kim Mendoza

MY REVIEW

 

Chrys Fey is a fantastic author who is always on the top of my reading list. She did not let me down in Seismic Crimes. Seismic Crimes picks up where Hurricane Crimes left off. The recap does not require you to read it first, though I would recommend doing so.

 

Beth’s journey continues with Donovan, which began in Hurricane Crimes, and now they are caught in an earthquake in San Francisco, being chased by a killer.

 

Is there such a thing as love at first sight? She risks a lot for him after knowing him for a day. It works for me.

 

Beth is an independent person, able to take care of herself, but Donovan easily fits into her life. He is hunky…hot…and action oriented, in more ways than one. Lots of romance and action, along with plenty of mystery and suspense, as Beth and Donovan take their relationship to a new level.

 

I am familiar with hurricanes and they don’t really scare me. There is plenty of time for preparation and if it’s going to be a big one, ya just get out of the way. Not so with earthquakes. I cannot imagine how terrifying it is to have your whole world shaking beneath your feet.

 

I could not help but chuckle at Beth’s thoughts while she is at the police station. It’s not starting out so well for them.

 

What can I say about Jackson Storm…? I love that Chrys made him a…and I see some deliciously good stuff coming next.

 

Humor  and romance go well together and Chrys Fey does a great job of blending them while keeping the suspense percolating.

 

Some sexy, hot scenes. I would recommend this for adults.

This original and thought provoking novel of zombies, angels and God gave me lots of food for thought as each person told their story while driving through a horde of zombies with body parts flying willy nilly and I was not able to quit thinking about the story long after I put the book down.

One Sentence Reviews 4 Death to the Undead by Pembroke Sinclair @PembrokeSinclai

Death to the Undead - Pembroke Sinclair

My Review for Death to the Undead, Book II by Pembroke Sinclair

 

Pembroke Sinclair keeps the twist and turns coming and the seed that was planted in my mind in Book I, Life After The Undead, comes to life, yet they battle the depths of depravity that are so far out there my mind has a hard time wrapping around the fight that seems futile, battling zombies and humans alike because, “What are the options?”

 

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

GOODREADS BLURB:  Seventeen-year-old Krista has already proven she can survive the zombie hordes.

 

After moving to North Platte with her distant cousin General Liet to help build a wall that will keep the zombies in the West, it becomes apparent that the zombies aren’t the biggest threat—some survivors are far more dangerous than Krista had ever imagined.

 

With the help of Quinn, a survivor and fighter from the zombie-infested wildlands of the West, they free the garrison at North Platte from the power-hungry Liet. But there is a bigger battle to fight.

 

The Families who rule Florida and use intimidation and the threat of the zombie horde to coerce their territory want Krista and Quinn captured, the zombies want to devour them, and other survivors want them dead. Caught between powerful forces, will they survive long enough to devise a new plan and put it into action? Or will they self-destruct?

 

Find out in book two of this thrilling apocalyptic series by author Pembroke Sinclair.

One Sentence Review 4 Life After The Undead by Pembroke Sinclair @PembrokeSinclai

Life After the Undead - Pembroke Sinclair

My Review for Life After the Undead, Book I by Pembroke Sinclair

 

I bonded with Krista quickly because of her curiosity, the need to know why the zombies do what they do and  we head to Florida, traveling through the grisly horror with the excellent writing and storyline, including a laugh or two along the way.

 

Amazon Goodreads

 

GOODREADS BLURB:  Seventeen-year-old Krista must quickly figure out how she’s going to survive in the zombie-destroyed world. The one advantage humans have is that the zombies hate humid environments, so they’re migrating west to escape its deteriorating effects. The survivors plan to construct a wall at North Platte to keep the undead out, and Krista has come to Nebraska to start a new life.

 

Zombies aren’t the only creatures she has to be cautious of—the other survivors have a dark side. Krista must fight not only to live but also to defend everything she holds dear—her country, her freedom, and ultimately, those she loves.

 

Join Krista in her quest to survive in this thrilling apocalyptic novel by Pembroke Sinclair.

Last Train From Perdition by Robert McCammon @MacCammon

Last Train from Perdition (I Travel By Night) - Robert R. McCammon

Last Train From Perdition is only one of the many stories Robert McCammon has to tell.

If you love some vampires with your horror, you’ll want to check him out.

 

If you have read I Travel by Night by Robert McCammon, and have been waiting for the next adventure in the series, then your wait is over. Book II, Last Train From Perdition is now available for pre-order and has a publishing date of October 31, 2016. I have not read the first book, but don’t feel it made a difference in my reading enjoyment.

MY REVIEW

 

I won this ARC of Robert McCammon in the black and white scifi/fantasy/horror novella surprise giveaway at Little Red Reviewer. Thanks Andrea. I am very excited to read it. Robert McCammon’s name is familiar to me and he is a prolific author of horror.

 

Last Train from Perdition is the second novella in the I Travel By Night series. I don’t feel like it made any difference in the reading by not having read the first novella, but I sure do want to now.

 

Trevor is a vampire, but not the vicious, human killing kind, though he does have a mighty thirst for blood…he drinks cattle blood, but it is a constant struggle to keep to that. He takes on a “job” to recover a man’s errant son, who wants to come home, from a gang of Wild West killers and teams up with Ann to do it. Just think of having a sidekick like Annie Oakley and Calamity Jane. Together they must fight the Dark Society to accomplish their mission. The battle is vicious, savage, and lethal for humans and vampires alike. These are not your run of the mill vampires and Robert McCammon has many surprises in store for us in this original storyline that makes me love Trevor and see why Ann will sacrifice her life to help him. If you need another gun you guys…I’m in. Last Train from Perdition by Robert McCammon left me SCREAMING for more.

Review – What Happened on Beale Street by Mary Ellis #MaryEllis

What Happened on Beale Street (Secrets of the South Mysteries) - Mary Ellis

I have gotten heavily involved in this stand alone Secrets of the South Mystery series because of its location…I love to read books that take place in an area I am familiar with and the Secrets of the South Mystery series does that. Also, I love a good mystery and it has plenty of that too.

 

Check out this intriguing cover…reeking of menace…ya never know what might happen on the dark and deserted street…or who’s watching.

MY REVIEW

 

What Happened on Beale Street by Mary Ellis is my second foray into the stand alone Secrets of the South Mystery series and I am so happy to embark on another adventure through the southern states of America.

 

I love familiar locations and mysteries, so when I won the first beautiful book, I was ecstatic and I want to tell you how ‘marvelous’ the continuing journey has been.

 

A childhood pledge takes impulsive but lovable Nicki and her gang from New Orleans, Louisiana, to Memphis, Tennessee.

 

Nate, her uptight but competent and loyal cousin and private investigator partner are on the case. It helps to have the wealthy and hunky Hunter to finance their trip and they are on their way in style. I love it. Made me think of Hart to Hart, the crime solving TV duo, only they are married.

 

The characters are ‘real’, with all their good and bad exposed. They have big hearts and are there for each other.

 

What do murder, stalking and a scavenger hunt have in common? What Happened on Beale Street.

 

The mystery is not mind blowing, but the tension and pacing kept my curiosity peaked, turning page after page, until I was done. Not only did I want to know who the murderer was, but I was even more concerned and curious about Isabelle. BUT that’s a mystery you’ll have to find out for yourself.

 

I thought I knew exactly how it would end, but Mary Ellis seems to be able to surprise me to the very last page. The suspense makes this hard, if not impossible, to stop reading once you start. I see more stories coming with this wonderful cast of characters and I am curious where we will travel to next.

 

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of What Happened of Beale Street from Mary Ellis.
