Murder Among Friends is a great “who dunnit”! Cammy comes to stay with her brother and sister-in-law and their two kids. When the mother of her niece and nephew’s best friend goes missing, Cammy can’t help but become involved. This story will make you think its predictable and you’ve got the guilty party all figured out. Then the ending happens and leaves you “What the h*ll just happened?!” It’s a great story with a huge twist! Some of the scenes were longer than necessary and the repetitive use of baby/sweetie are just a huge pet peeve of mine, but this book was great!
Fierce Emotions is book 8 in the Marcy series. I strongly suggest reading the series in order. Marcy is married to Brad and Liam and all seems to be going well, until . . . .
I am not a big fan of the series as I just do not like plural relationships, so I find myself skipping through most of the relationship reading and getting to the story line. That is the part that I do enjoy. The stories are well written and the characters are interesting. It’s great the Linda Burson is able to come up with something different for them in each book.
If the plural relationship doesn’t bother you and you like a good adventure then this is definitely the series for you!
Edge of the Storm picks up with Blackbird as she goes on her first mission with Halo in Rome. When Halo is taken, Blackbird has to put everything she has learned to save her partner. I am loving this series! The suspense, the action, the bada$$ women the story revolves around. The only thing I’d like to see is more action and a longer story!
Marcy is a happy woman with a man she loves and a successful business who seems to develop anger issues out of the blue. Faced with getting help or losing her boyfriend, Marcy decides to get help and get to the bottom of her issues. I actually read the second book in this series first and I’m glad I did. This book for me moved very slow and it felt like it took me forever to read, not to mention the emotional back and forth with Brad will give you whip lash. Brad is not very likable in this book and I think he needs to work on his own issues. Book 2 definitely picks up and was better for me, so the series is worth the read.
Blinded by Betrayal follows what happens to Sloane after her husband rolls over on her mafia family. In the mafia, spouses are responsible for each other’s actions. When rolls over they both must die. With a contract on her head, Sloane has to think fast and act faster. Running to an old friend of hers for help, leads Sloane to a life she could never have imagined. I love a good mafia book and I love a strong female lead even more, so this book was right up my alley. I really enjoyed this book. I would have liked to have read more on Sloane’s training and I could have done without the introduction to the Chateau. I ended up skipping through most of that. It just didn’t go with the story to me once I finished the book. BUT, I still loved the story and I can’t wait to read the next one!!
Nathalie and Jason were high school sweethearts, until he up and left for university without saying goodbye. Running into each other years later brings with it a possibility at second chances. Nathalie’s past has left her scarred and untrusting. Can she find it in herself to trust Jason or will her past come back to haunt her? The story line was so good and the characters are great! This is the first I’ve read from Shae Banks and I cannot wait for the next book! While it doesn’t end a cliff hanger, you know there is more to come for these two and I need to know what it is!
I was very excited to read A Person Could Disappear. It started off great! But as the story progressed I found myself skipping ahead as the characters seemed to go off on tangents. Some of it may have been necessary but it threw the story off for me. I wanted to get the interaction between the characters. It has a good story line and the characters are interesting. It should have a trigger warning and some scenes were hard to read.
Garrett and Hope meet again after 2 years apart by chance. Hope is the housekeeper for Mr. Meyer and Garrett is working security for Dark Water Security. With the two sharing staff quarters they realize their connection is just as intense as it was the night they met. Both are dealing with trauma and find comfort and safety in each other. With their boss’s kinks and threats going on, can the two get past the traumas of the last two years?
This was a great read! I am really enjoying this series. The characters are believable and the story line is great! I’m hoping Cole’s book is next! My interest in him is definitely piqued after this book.
Van and Valencia are the perfect kids for their parents. Their younger sibling overlooked except by Val. Van and Valencia die in a car crash on their way home from college for Thanksgiving. Everyone’s life is changed.
The story flashes back between the present and the past. As I write this review, I can’t tell you the main character’s name, because I don’t believe it is every mentioned in the book. Which makes sense considering how she feels invisible all the time. That’s actually pretty brilliant!
The story is good, but I felt some of the flashbacks were not necessary for the book and made it feel slow to me. Things picked up for me when the envelopes started showing up. I found myself getting aggravated with her because she comes across so wishy washy and she is always giving into Adrian and never seems to stand up for herself. Until the end of the book, then I cheered for her.
When her past comes back to haunt her, and Adrian, things get really interesting. I would have liked to have seen more emphasis on this. While the ending does make sense with the way the book went, you still can’t help but want to see a tearful reunion. But, like I said, the ending actually makes sense.
Okay, I thought the last Gray Ghost book was my favorite, but no. Vantage Point is the best one yet! Hawk is the quiet one of the bunch and becomes concerned about all the fighting he hears in his neighbors apartment. His neighbor, Stella, and her brother are constantly fighting over his gambling issues. Hawk’s instincts are correct as Stella is swept up in her brother’s latest. There is suspense, action, a feisty strong female lead and a hot alpha male. This book was just so good!!! I read it in one sitting. I’m hoping Keegan’s story is next!
