Ring Tru (Thick As Thieves Series Book #1) by Janice M. Whiteaker – Review by Angela Hayes

Ring Tru (Thick as Theives Book 1)Ring Tru by Janice M. Whiteaker
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

Ring Tru is the first book in the Thick As Thieves Series by Janice M. Whiteaker. What a great way to start off a new series! I was hooked right from the first chapter. This is a brilliant second chances romance, with mystery, suspense, danger, intrigue, steam, tension, love, loss, heartache, hate, jewel thieves, friendships, plots, plans, and more.
Gertrude (Tru) has been in her line of business now for 15 years and is ready for a fresh start. But to make that happen, she needs to do one last job, so she can start over. She’s got just the right heist to set her up for the next stage of her life and she has put a lot of effort into setting things up and hopes she’ll soon see the fruits of her labour. Then he walks back into her life, and things get complicated.
Will and Tru have a history, and yes, he had hurt her, badly. But he thought he was doing what was best for her at the time. That was 5 years ago…. and now, she hates him. He really wonders if he did the right thing when he walked away. They are obviously working the same score, but for two different reasons. If he can’t find a way to get her to trust him and agree to work together, it may cost them a lot more than some jewels. But, there is definitely more to the situation than first meets the eye, and things soon take a dangerous turn. Will he risk everything to protect her? Was the pain he caused her too deep for her to get past? Will they realise that there is a fine line between love and hate, and they never really stopped loving each other – both suffering for the past 5 years? Will they leave with what they came for, or something far more valuable?
Highly recommended reading!!
Can’t wait for book #2!

Thank you, Ms. Whiteaker!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

  • Ring Tru by Janice M. Whiteaker is the first book in the Thick as Thieves series. For me this book caught my attention with the blurb – I hadn’t read a romance book before that involved a thief as a main character. And it worked really well.
    Tru and Will were believable, not only as characters on their own but also as ones together. You could feel the connection between them which made them so easy to connect with.
    This was a new author for me and I was impressed with the writing style and how she takes you on a journey. This was a great read that I throughly enjoyed.View all my reviews

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a second chance romance-suspense book. I enjoyed this author’s writing style that made me feel as if I was right there with the characters. Her characters are connectable and lovable. I enjoyed the chemistry between Tru and Will. They did take me on a few twists and turns that I didn’t see coming. Will they get their second chance at love and will Will keep her safe this time? I highly recommend this book to find out if fate will give them a second chance.

Ring Tru (Thick as Theives Book 1)Ring Tru by Janice M. Whiteaker
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

I really enjoyed this book! When I first read the blurb I was intrigued to read it and whilst it did take me a little bit to get into once I did I was completely hooked. I’ve not read a storyline like this one before which meant it was really refreshing to read. There were some good twists and turns and most were unexpected. I loved Tru – I thought that she was a great female lead. Will was a great male lead and loved the intenseness between them, you can tell that what happened in their past is still at the very front of any interactions between them. The author got the level of suspense perfect and carried on the whole way through the story.
This is the second book that I have read by this author and I can’t wait to read more from her in the future. Ring Tru is a brilliant read that I highly recommend!

Ring Tru (Thick as Thieves Book 1)
By: Janice M. Whiteaker
5 out of 5 stars

The story Ring Tru (Thick as Thieves Book 1) by Janice M. Whiteaker is a romantic suspense book. It is a book that hooked me in from the very beginning and I didn’t want to put it down until I had read the last page. It is a story that has times that are suspenseful and had me wondering what was going to happen next. It had me turning pages. I loved reading about Tru and Will. Tru is a woman who has one more job that she has to do and then she will retire into the sunset. What she doesn’t expect is to run into Will the man that left her years ago, breaking her heart. Will knows he has a problem when he finds the woman that he left to protect from the lifestyle that he leads after the same prize. He now finds that the job he has started to be a difficult one as he can’t stop thinking about her. She can’t stop thinking about him. Could it be that the emotions/feelings that they both felt they were over still remain? Could these two still care for each other? They both have a job that they are working on. Will they find themselves protecting each other or is it every thief for themselves? Read this story to find out. There are some twists to this story that I did not see coming and I found myself mesmerized by the plot to the story. I enjoyed reading about how Tru and Will banter back and forth with each other. I also liked reading about this couple’s friends and their interactions. This is a wonderfully written story that I would recommend reading. It is the first book in a series and I look forward to reading the next one.

Hagen (Big, #1) by Janice M. Whiteaker – Review by Jenni Bishop

Hagen (Big, #1)Hagen by Janice M. Whiteaker
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hagen (Big Book 1) by Janice M. Whiteaker is a paranormal ​romance. I have not read anything from this author before and really enjoyed this great start to the series which is not only captivating but is also a compelling read. The story has everything needed to make it good, it is full of drama and humour with characters you will enjoy and connect to. You will never look at the myth that is Bigfoot in the same way again after reading this. Janice has written a book that will keep you intrigued right to the end and you are so engrossed in the story that it is over before you know it.

I look forward to reading more of this series and more by this author.

Hagen (Big Series Book #1) by Janice M. Whiteaker – Review by Angela Hayes

Hagen (Big, #1)Hagen by Janice M. Whiteaker
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

Hagen is the first book in the Big series by Janice M. Whiteaker. What a fun and original story this turned out to be. It is a paranormal romance with Bigfoot playing a leading role! It was funny, emotional, and very steamy.
Rhea is a 28-year-old camera operator who has travelled all the way to the Appalachian Mountains for a job that she hopes will be the big break she has been dreaming of. She meets up with the director and the rest of the crew at the bed and breakfast that they will be using as their headquarters during filming. They are making a documentary about Bigfoot, which means hiking into the forested mountain to try and capture their prey on film. This project will require them to camp out overnight as well. They have hired a local to guide them into the wilderness and to help keep them safe. When Rhea first lays eyes on the guide she knew immediately he had the power to break her. There is definitely something different about him that intrigues her, and she is determined to work out what it is.
Hagen feels cursed and thinks fate has robbed him of the chance of a normal life. This has left him a little bitter and lonely. Now he is going to be stuck in the woods babysitting a bunch of city slickers with plans on capturing convincing footage of Bigfoot’s existence. Not if he has anything to do with it. But having Rhea in close proximity for the whole time, as well as a meddling mother and an old prophecy to contend with- does he really stand a change at remaining indifferent and standoffish? What happens when BOTH their secrets are revealed?
This is my first paranormal story with Bigfoot and I can honestly say it was fantastic. I really enjoyed getting to know Hagen and Rhea and following their journey. Now I can’t wait to dive into book two.

Thank you, Ms. Whiteaker!

Hagen (Big Series # 1) by Janice M. Whiteaker – Review by Chantelle Smith

Hagen (Big, #1)Hagen by Janice M. Whiteaker
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hagen is book 1 in the Big series from author Janice M. Whiteaker. This is my first read from this author but it most definitely will not be my last! She has written a read that is captivating and compelling with some amazing characters and a brilliant storyline that you couldn’t help but enjoy from start to finish! I can’t wait to see what else this author brings to this series.

This book was suspenseful, fast paced & thrilling, it has romance, passion, sexiness. This is an amazing imaginative read that hooks you from the beginning and brings you on this amazing rollercoaster filled ride, with incredible characters such as Rhea and Hagen, Jarrik & Stewart. I don’t think I couldn’t wish for a more brilliant paranormal, sexy read than this.

From the get-go I loved Rhea, you could tell she was going to be an independent, strong women who will go after what she wants. I also like that we got that added extra of Rhea and her special abilities. She awakens them more with being in Greenlee and develops them to be more powerful.
You can tell Greenlee will be a place that will be central to everything thing that occurs in Rhea and Hagen journey, improving it and helping out others that have it tough.

We do get thrown a couple of twist and that we don’t expect but I’m glad that everything works out in the end!

But her dynamic with Hagen straight off the bat is what got me even more invested into this story! The chemistry that is between Hagen & Rhea is instantaneous, yet they both his it from one another, that is until it gets too powerful for them to don’t. you can’t help but fall for Hagen yourself, he is sexy, powerful, strong & your typical alpha male he is caring, considerate and shows more compassion and feeling than others which makes him perfect. At first you think he is just a broody male but after you find out his story and what he has given up and suppresses you can’t help but live him more and feel his pain! I can’t help but route for Rhea and Hagen throughout this entire read, They just seem perfect together and that they could really make a difference together and to top it off they have undeniable passion!

This is an incredible start to a series with some amazing characters, I hope this isn’t the last we hear from Hagen & Rhea, and that they continue to get the HEA they both deserve.
