Exodus ’95 by Kfir Luzzatto

Exodus ‘95 has the main protagonists searching for a long lost religious relic of significance but this is not a “religious” book. It is actually a thriller that takes you on a ride filled with espionage, murder and betrayal. This is a fast-paced story that will entertain you from start to finish. Claire Williams is an ordinary woman who happens to befriend a lonely old man named Jack. Jack is […]

The Danger with Love by Amanda Siegrist

The Danger with Love is a romantic novel filled with humor, spice, and a dash of suspense! Sarafina has spent her adult life living out the cliché “always the bridesmaid, never the bride” and she is done! She has vowed that after her best friend’s wedding she is retiring her services as a bridesmaid. She will only attend a wedding strictly as a guest or as the bride. No more […]


Charity’s Wrath by Jane Blythe

Charity’s Wrath by Jane Blythe

There is never anything about Author Jane Blythe’s writing that is warm and fuzzy. Her writing style is gritty, edgy and in your face. She is not afraid to explore the darker side of an unhealthy love. While reading her books I am always appalled at the sinister side of humanity she conveys and shocked at how the character’s act and react. It always resonates with me though how her […]

Beautiful Delusions by Ember Raine Winters

I cannot say that before reading this book I really understood Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Since this story revolves around this disorder/illness I did do some research into it. In order to really judge the realism that the author is trying to convey I needed to be familiar with the subject matter otherwise I would not be able to fairly review this book. If you want a quick info bite […]

The Devil Crept In by Ania Ahlborn

The devil crept in is no joke. This is a horrific tale of two cousins and how their lives were affected by a creature from the pits of hell. I am not a horror genre aficionado but I do enjoy the occasional pulse pounding suspense that comes from reading a good horror book. This book delivered that as well as a side of gore. The book is divided into three […]


Where the Lost Girls Go by R.J. Noonan

Where the Lost Girls Go by R.J. Noonan

Laura Mori’s character is a newbie about to get a crack at her first case. She is written as competent, intelligent and a slightly naïve woman who wants to make a difference in her life and the lives of others. I enjoyed that her character is of the Japanese ethnicity. She is no wilting waif and I love protagonist diversity. Throughout the story you will also see her struggle with […]


Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

I was first introduced to author Leigh Bardugo when I read the Grisha Trilogy. That series was just spectacular (imagine fireworks and sparkles after this word), so when I read about the first book in this duology, Six of Crows, which is set in the same world as the Grisha books, I had to read it! I adored the first book and this book was even better! How could I […]

The Sour Taste of Suspicion by CeeCee James

The Sour Taste of Suspicion is the third book of the Angel Lake Mystery Series. This is the first book that I have read from Author CeeCee James and it was a delightful cozy mystery. It was enjoyable how the story gave an old time feel but was set in the current day and age. Elise is the protagonist in this series with the aid of her best friend Lavina. […]


Man on the Run by Carl Weber

Man on the Run by Carl Weber

This story is told in alternating first person voice and it follows four main characters, Jay, Kyle, Wil, and Allen.  What a dynamic read with four very different personalities. Some of the situations they find themselves drawn into are almost on the cusp of unrealistic but not so unbelievable that it stops you from becoming engrossed in the story. There are lots of sexy times between these men and their […]

Reckless Creed by Alex Kava

I really enjoyed the previous two books in this series, Ryder Creed. It made me very excited to get this book into my hands and see where things had gone with Ryder and his dogs. What I was not expecting was a thriller that brushes against a reality that is so terrifying. It is one of those situations that could be potentially happening now. I haven’t read a book that […]

The Burning Page by Genevieve Cogman

Irene, Kai and Vale are back in this action-packed installment of The Invisible Library series, Honestly though, I think that all the stories are full of action 😉 and I love it. After reading two out of three books from this series I can say with sincerity that these books are best read in order. This story is heavily tied back to the plot from book number one with a […]

Hard Hitter by Sarina Bowen

What do I adore about this story? That a rugged, hard-edged fella was not an alpha male with caveman issues. Patrick O’Doul had some personal issues stemming from childhood and although they were not dealt with at the start of this story he still was a functioning human being. Yes! More please! It was lovely that it was Ariana Bettini who called the shots and that he was okay with […]


Two by Jane Blythe

Two by Jane Blythe

Author Jane Blythe writes a dark crime thriller that tells a twisted story of apathy, degradation and crime that should only take place in our nightmares. It was brutal and told with such conviction that it left me feeling disturbed at times. This is a story that makes the idea of “keep it secret, keep it safe” appalling. From the start of the book I was engrossed and also grossed […]


Kiss & Tell by Luke Murphy

Kiss & Tell by Luke Murphy

Dark, grisly and intense! The entire time I was reading this story I had a feeling of foreboding coupled with a sense of tension that there was always a threat looming in the background. Several times I felt myself willing the main character Charlene Taylor to make different choices, lol. There is a great hook right from the prologue and the story is filled with suspenseful twists and turns. Having been recently […]

Black Bullet by L.D. Rose

Graphic, intense, and action-packed! Dang! This story started off with a bang! This novel starts the story off with events that shaped the main characters. There are transitions between past and present and it is through these transitions that we understand the history that has brought the characters of this installment to the point that they are at. It is also where we are first introduced to Lawan Knight. We are able to learn about […]

Mind Waves by Amanda Uhl

“They walked in formation, each of the three men taking an outside stance with David on the inside. Guarding him was critical, so he could track the information they were after, while concealing their presence. Their job was to help him navigate the energy fields and fight off the mind’s natural defensive system, which operated similar to white blood cells attacking invading bacteria.” A team of mind hackers working together […]

Race the Darkness by Abbie Roads

This was one twisted and unexpected story. I could not make up my mind what genre that I would even classify this under. It was foul-mouthed, believably unbelievable and at times nauseating. I loved it! Xander Stone was struck by over 50,000 volts of electricity via a lightning strike and it did not kill him. Instead he has been “marked.” He has a phenomenon known as Lichtenberg figure all over […]

Not Quite Perfect by Catherine Bybee

This is my first time reading a novel from Catherine Bybee and I am wondering what rock I have been living under?? I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book! The story is entertaining, light-hearted, and comical but it also held a dark twist to it that although predictable added just the right amount of edge to keep this story from going into the “mega eye roll” territory. “Analyzing people and recognizing […]

Beauty and the Clockwork Beast by Nancy Campbell Allen

I have been waiting for this book to come out since April and it is finally in my hot little hands. It was so much more than I had hoped for. It has the steampunk elements that I adore. It has vampires, shape-shifters, mediums and humans with exceptional qualities. Loved it! This book for me is amazing; it felt like it had a blending of Jane Eyre, The Hound of […]

A Time of Torment by John Connolly

As my moniker implies I like to flirt across literary genres. I try to dip into mostly every kind of genre and I find I have not read a thriller in a few months. This book, A Time of Torment, hits that note as well as being part horror and part mystery all rolled up into one. I have not read a previous book in the Charlie Parker series and […]
