New Release ~*~ The Body Counter by Anne Frasier


Months after discovering the mastermind behind her own kidnapping, Detective Jude Fontaine is dealing with the past the only way she knows how: by returning to every dark corner of it. But it’s a new, escalating series of mass slayings that has become her latest obsession at Homicide.
At first, Jude and her partner, Detective Uriah Ashby, can see no pattern to the seemingly random methods, the crime scenes, or the victims—until they’re approached by a brilliantly compulsive math professor. He believes that the madman’s next move is not incalculable; in fact, it’s all part of a sequential and ingenious numerical riddle. His theory is adding up. The body count is rising.
But when the latest victim is found in Jude’s apartment, the puzzle comes with a personal twist that’s going to test the breaking point of her already-fragile state of mind. For all she knows, her number may be up.

Review:
I've really been enjoying this series and The Body Counter doesn't disappoint.  Jude is a unique character that is strong yet weak, emotional without being outwardly emotional, and overall complex.

I highly recommend reading the first books before delving into this one just to get a grip on Jude and who she is and why she's that way otherwise, you might not like her and it may distract from the story.  I can't wait to see what's next.

In Jamie Sinclair’s line of work, there’s no such thing as too careful. Not when clients like Madeline Donahue come knocking on her door. Madeline claims a disgruntled robotics engineer is blackmailing her boss—an eccentric tech billionaire—and holding the computer systems of their satellite and space payload company hostage. With U.S. government secrets at stake, Madeline wants Jamie to protect her as she pays the ransom. But is it really ransom? Or personal payback?

She’ll have to move fast to get that target off her back—and to keep those she loves from becoming the weakest link in a powerful enemy’s kill chain.


Review:
The Kill Chain jumps right in with action and suspense.  Jamie is a great character and you'll want to read the other books either before or after reading this one :)

The plot is tight and compact making it a quick read the tis easy to follow, but there are a few twists and turns that will keep you guessing.

New Release ~*~ Sparks Like Ours by Melissa Brayden


Gia Malone wants one thing and one thing only: to be the best surfer in the world. Her biggest obstacle is the annoyingly perky Elle Britton. Not only is Elle number one in the rankings, she’s also a fan favorite. But there’s a lot about Elle that Gia never noticed, like her surprising sense of humor and picture-perfect mouth. 


Elle Britton is tired. After tournaments, fan meet-ups, and nonstop media requests, all she wants in the world is a little peace and quiet. But with Gia Malone closing in on her ranking, she has to surf her best. When the media picks up the story of their neck and neck status, Elle finds herself forced further into the spotlight, this time alongside Gia, the knockout with the killer shred and sexy smile. 

It’s not long before there’s no denying the chemistry on and off the beach. But only one can win…


Review:
Gia & Elle are a fun pair...while there is nothing really surprising in the storyline.  It is a fun story with a couple of surfers who need to balance love and competition.

Review:

This first book in a new series from Stacey Kennedy is both sweet and sexy.  It's a cute story with some fun elements.  The characters are good the drama is relatively unique...

Overall, while I've loved stacey's books for years, this felt a little superficial as a story.  Not a lot of depth, but still an enjoyable read.

Gone to Dust by Liliana Hart

The Gravediggers aren’t exactly what they seem. They’re the most elite of the world’s fighting forces—and all they have in common is that they’ve been betrayed by the countries they’ve died for. Because they are dead. To their country, their military, and their families.

Sometimes the dead do rise....

Miller Darling is one of the most popular romance novelists of her time. Not bad for a woman who doesn’t believe in romance. She’s as logical as they come, and she doesn’t believe in happily-ever-afters. What she does believe in is family, so when her brother disappears, she doesn’t think twice about packing her bag and her laptop and heading out to find him.

Elias Cole lived and breathed the life of a Navy SEAL. Now he’s “dead” and his hero’s honor tarnished. The only thing keeping him sane are the men who are like him—The Gravediggers—and the woman who makes his head spin. He’s never met anyone like Miller Darling. Her smart mouth and quick wit keep him on his toes, and damned if he doesn’t find that appealing.

When Miller receives a package from the brother who abandoned her asking for help, it’s clear she’s in over her head with the mess he’s gotten himself into. She needs a professional, and Elias is just the man for the job. Only her brother is a former SEAL—the man who left his team to die—and Elias is more interested in vengeance than saving his life.


Review:
This one sat on my Kindle for much too long.  I don't know why.  The series is fun and sexy and Gone to Dust didn't disappoint. Action filled with only a couple of twists but the chemistry between the characters keep you turning the pages.

In this gripping mystery, new author Barbara Elle paints a clever, twisted picture of women and sisters, whose lives are entwined by a brutal murder.

Tank by Erin Bevan

https://amzn.to/2L9QBCI
Tyler Wilde moves to Black Widow, Texas, to join the Blue Guardians, a local biker club that helps abused women and children. He's intent on starting his life over, but a small piece of his past collides with his present when he runs into the local waitress, Annie Carter.

Annie’s the girl of his boyhood dreams, and Tyler can’t wait to get reacquainted with her. Only problem is, Annie’s engaged. But what has Tyler more troubled than the diamond on her finger is the bruise that graces her arm. To make matters worse, Annie’s abuser and intended husband is also the town’s Chief of Police.

Tyler is determined to offer Annie a safe haven, but she refuses his help until her life is hanging by a thread.

Review:
What a fun story :)

While I love reading about Bikers, it was a nice change of pace to not read about a 1%-er club!  These bikers are still broody and alpha-male(ish) but they are out to change the lives of abuse victims and it's great.

The characters are interesting and compelling as is the story. I look forward to more books in this series.

Rosecliff Manor Haunting by Cheryl Bradshaw

https://amzn.to/2IqyBGI
Psychic medium Addison Lockhart jolts awake, her brow sweaty, head throbbing. The dream had seemed so real. 

The twins, eleven-year-old Vivian and Grace, were so full of life she wanted to reach out, touch them. But she couldn't. The girls had been dead for forty years. Why then had they appeared to her, summoning her help? Were their untimely deaths really an accident, or was something far more sinister to blame?

If you enjoy a mystery with a supernatural twist, you'll enjoy this fast-paced, bestselling series.

Review:
I honestly, can't remember if I read the first book in this series, but it's safe to say you can jump into book 2 with no problem :)

It's kind of a cozy mystery with some paranormal mixed in.  I like the characters and the storyline as Addison tries to figure out what was going on .  It's a sweet novella that while not an edge of my seat page turner, present a good, solid story that is an enjoyable read.

Men Under Fire by Jacki Delecki

Hollie Thomas, the feisty, tattooed office assistant to Grayce Walters, has come a long way from living on the streets. Along with finding a job she loves, she’s found friends and safety. When her new life unravels, she faces dangers that dwarf her troubled past. Fighting to survive, she discovers that sometimes what you need the most might be found in the one person you failed to see coming.

Returning home from the war and struggling to find his way, Sergeant Nick Welby, and his bomb-sniffing golden lab, use their skill set in the last place he’d ever imagined—Seattle’s Waterfront. To protect the one woman who matters, Nick and his trusty canine partner will risk everything to rescue her and Seattle from disaster.

Embroiled in Grayce Walters’ most perilous case—a terrorist plot with the threat of deadly explosives—can Nick and Hollie work together to save themselves and each other before it’s too late?

Review:

While I've enjoyed this series, this book was a bit of a let down. basically this is book 2, from Hollie's point of view.  While I like Hollie and glad she met someone, the whole suspense bit is lost if you've read book two because it is the exact same story. If you haven't read Women Under Fire (book 2), then this is a good story.

Detroit rules by Linda Style

STREET LAW: Whatever it takes…
Disillusioned attorney turned private investigator Charlie Street’s life shattered when her father was convicted of murder and killed in prison. Convinced he was framed, she vowed to find who was responsible and see them pay. 

Detective Remington Malone’s best friend has disappeared…the case has gone cold, but nothing, not even the threat of losing his job, can keep Remy from investigating. And as the bodies of his snitches start piling up, it’s clear someone besides the chief of police wants to stop him. 

Remy needs the best PI in town, and that’s Charlie Street. Except there’s bad blood between the investigator and Detroit’s finest. The last thing Charlie wants is to work with a cop. But when she sees a link between Remy’s case and her father’s…it’s a job she can’t refuse. Soon, Charlie and Remy are mired in the dark world of human trafficking, running from the mob―and fixed in the crosshairs of a killer.

DETROIT RULES is the first book in Linda Style’s explosive new STREET LAW series. A ticked-off mob boss, cops on the take, seduction, betrayal, and murder—it will take a lot more than money to fix this Motor City problem.


Review:
While it's been a few years since this came out, I just recently got my hands on it...how could a native Detroit pass up a local novel ;)  I do hope the fact that it is having recent promotion means there will be more books in the series.

I was disappointed with a few things throughout the book, mostly the misreferences to how a Detroit would speak certain things.  Overall though it was a well written story with a few surprises and twists that made it very enjoyable to read.  I hope to see more of Charlie as a kick-butt female lead in the future.

Lola: I’ve seen the way women in line behind the velvet rope look at William Fox, like he’s an Armani-clad St. Peter at the pearly gates. Except Panic isn’t heaven, and this bouncer is no saint. He’s been tempting me to sin ever since I started working here, but Fox’s slick smile and bad-boy swagger tell me everything I need to know about him. Still, a girl has needs. And Fox looks ready to fulfill every last one—at least for a night. . . .

Fox: I’m not used to being ignored—especially by women—but Lola Daye is different. The pretty bartender with the red lips and icy blue eyes seems perfectly happy pretending I don’t exist. Too bad, because the more she ignores me, the harder I fall. So I’m floored when she answers my drunken, flirty text with a yes. Lola claims she only wants a fling, but after one kiss, our bodies are speaking the same language. And I’m ready to prove that what we have could be forever.

No cheating. No cliffhangers. And no dress code.

Private investigator Lance Kruger was just a boy when his father vanished twenty-three years ago. Since then he’s lived under the weight of that disappearance—until his father’s car is finally dredged up from the bottom of Grey Lake.

Special Agent Ryan O'Connor is starting to get her life back together in the aftermath of a shooting and her boss's arrest. Despite scheduling incompatibilities preventing them from seeing one another, she and Allison are doing great; she's preparing to return to full duty; and she's trying to block out the voices of those who've been doubting she still has what it takes to do her job.

Ryan should've known things were never that simple. When a ghost from her past reappears without warning, blindsiding her in a way she never could have expected, Ryan’s entire existence is badly shaken. She’d always believed that the best protection any woman could ever have—aside from a gun—was courage, but now she finds herself asking a question she never thought she’d need to answer: Who protects the Secret Service?

Well, this one started a little slow for me, but it could be that I didn't realize it was a series and I haven't read the first book - so I didn't have the background that might have allowed me to jump right in. But I have to say, after the first couple of chapters, I was hooked and couldn't put this one down.  

Known threat is well written with likable characters and a good amount of drama and police procedural.  There is a bit of romance, action and even a touch of suspense thrown in for good measure.

Review ~ Sins of the Fathers by Catherine Sue Morgan

Twenty years ago, Rebecca Bennett's father raped and killed Jack Conroy's sister. Adopted and her name changed after the tragedy, Becca is desperately searching for her brother, Kevin, who has vanished. He is, as was their father, paranoid schizophrenic, and the string of rapes that is terrorizing the city started only days after he disappeared.

Jack Conroy, Tulsa Police Department detective, is focused with razor sharp intensity on the hunt for the serial rapist whose violence is increasing with every offense. For Jack, it's personal; he sees his sister's face in every victim. Aware of Becca only as a trauma therapist, Jack asks her to aid the investigation by working with the original rape survivors. She agrees, and soon her secrets and her life are on the line.



Review~
Everything in this story is well developed, while I find the ending lacking I was pretty hooked on the plot. The story is almost a breath of fresh air from the usual romantic suspense books as it deals very closely with mental illness. Some of the story was predictable and fell into place a little too easily, while other parts where a bit of a surprise. A solid 4 star read for me.

Accountant and financial advisor Lacey Chamberlain doesn’t consider herself a control freak. She’s merely a planner―orderly, neat, and content in her tidy little life. When a marketing firm moves into the empty office next door, the loud-music-playing, stinky-food-ordering, kickball-in-the-hall staff make Lacey crazy. 

Marketing expert Alicia Wright is spontaneous, flies by the seat of her pants, and lives in the moment―all the things Lacey is not. She’s also gorgeous, thoughtful, and seems determined to make Lacey like her. 

They say opposites attract, but for how long? And is that really a good idea?
