REVIEW:

This book blew me away, I didn’t read the blurb and in went blind. The story is told by different pov including the psychopath. This is definitely my cup of tea with the story taking place in FBI BAU, I love a murder mystery. This was so different from the standard who done it. We are on the inside of the group looking for a killer and then we are inside the psychopath’s mind. It kept the story flowing with the different POV’s
The characters in the BAU are a tight knit group so when Noah brings in a newbie Ella it takes time for her fit in. This book is fantastic, I don’t want give anything away. We have team looking for the psychopath who killing and leaving body parts in a wooded area. This book is not as dark as I thought it would be. It was wonderful feeling part of the team I was in there trying to figure who the Psychopath was  . I can’t recommend this enough, a book that kept on my toes all the way through. I am now going to look through the author’s backlist.

About the Author:

V.F.Mason always loved reading books and had quite a few fights with her momma over the genre she liked (romance, duh!) She studied filmmaking and thought that would feed her desire for stories, but that didn’t happen. Finally, when she was tired of all those voices in her head, she sat down and wrote a book. It was a huge decision to make and she thanks her friends and family for supporting her in it. When she is not writing, she can be found with her friends doing all sorts of crazy things or reading recent romance books that were written by her favorite authors.

Audiobook Blog Tour: A WITCHE’S CONCERN ( A Witch’s Path Book 3 ) By N.E. CONNEELY, Narrated By Jeff Hays and Laurel Catherine Winkel

Author: N.E. Conneely

Narrators: Jeff Hays, Laurie Catherine Winkel

Series: A Witch’s Path, Book 4

Length: 7 hours 25 minutes

Publisher: N.E. Conneely

Released: Jan. 16, 2018

Genre: Paranormal, Supernatural

Michelle has been figuring out what her life is like now that the demon has been killed, and Sylvia and Varro are dead. Even the clans of witches trying to attract her to their way of life have backed off and given her a chance to grieve. Her relationship with Elron is stronger than ever, but there are things left unsaid.

On the way to her parents’ wedding, the delicate calm she’d been living in is broken. Witches are out for her blood, her family is caught in the crossfire, and friendships are threatened. Work doesn’t let up either, and she partners up with Elron to deal with magic gone wild. Michelle finds that her problems are larger than one clan of witches, and is forced to choose between the people she holds dear and the way of life she loves.

This is the fourth book in a series, following A Witch’s Trial. It is a standalone novel, however, your experience will be greatly enhanced if you’ve heard the previous books.

N.E. Conneely lives in northern Georgia with her dog and a mountain of books. They sweat through the summer and freeze through the winter, and life as they know it comes to an end when so much as a single snowflake falls out of the sky. For fun, N.E. plays with her dog, reads, knits, crochets, paints, and does tie-dyeing and origami. She makes a great pizza and is currently negotiating with her husband about raising sea monkeys and growing a vegetable garden.

His versatility and authenticity in voicing characters, expressive low-impact narration, and dedication to offering the highest quality audio possible has earned him a loyal following of listeners. Having been fascinated with sound since he can remember, Jeff takes his background of composing and producing music, and his continual consumption of the avalanche of fictional media we all experience in these modern times, and uses it to inform his style of story telling in the audiobook realm.

And now, having produced more than 80 audio books and perfecting his craft, using the namesake of his live streaming narration show, the Soundbooth Theater shingle has been hung. Soundbooth Theater is dedicated to applying Jeff’s production methods to new audio books with other budding narrator talent, and expanding his scope from audio books, to voicing and producing animation.

Narrator Bio

Laurie got into voiceover by studying with the legendary dialect expert Paul Meier and hosting the teen program for a nonprofit for the blind, Kansas Audio Reader. She speaks French fluently and, before diving into audiobooks, lived and performed for some time in France. She’s racking up some bizarre credits, playing a range of characters onscreen from Disney princesses to horror scream queens, and proving her audio versatility by narrating everything from cowboy romances to action-packed GameLit fantasy trolls. You can also catch her in a few VR video games. Her favorite is playing confident, power-hungry, whip-smart anti-heroines.

Like Jeff Hays, she hails from the Kansas City area but currently lives in Atlanta.

We start with Michelle on the way to her parents wedding when she gets a puncture, when a car stops Michelle realises this was trap, and was kidnapped by witches from her mother’s former coven.
Michelle has grown without a coven, and she wants stay Clan less. Elron and Michelle’s relationship grows slow and steady. This is about her parents and her grandmothers, and one of her grandmother Gretchen is determined to have Michelle in her Coven.
This is about family, and the lengths some go to get their own way. This is more about love from a family Michelle had never met on her father side.
This is an excellent story, and we understand more about how destiny catches up Michelle whether she likes or not.
Great narration Jeff’s male voices were very distinctive and I knew who was speaking every time. Laurel is Michelle and conjures her personality exactly. This is my fourth  audiobook in the series and everyone feels like old friends ( not the baddies )

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Jeff Hays. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Q&A with Laurie Catherine Winkel

  • How did you wind up narrating audiobooks? Was it always your goal or was it something you stumbled into by chance?
    • Well, I was encouraged to do so by my professor, Paul Meier, who I had no idea was a big name in the audiobook world for his dialect coaching and founding the IDEA archives. I kind of stumbled into it later when I was asked to audition for a program called Kansas Audio Reader in college, which was a specialized radio broadcast for the blind. For three years I ran a program reading YA books for blind teens. I had no idea it was going to be so relevant to my life.
  • Did you find it difficult to “break into” audiobook narration? What skill/tool helped you the most when getting started?
    • Because I had unknowingly gained all that experience in nonprofit, and training in my acting work, I found the performance pretty accessible. What was throw-your-headphones-at-the-wall infuriating was all the tech! I am not a tech-savvy person, and learning even the basic specs of audio recording was a huge struggle. When troubleshooting one of my first home-recorded books, I spent so much time on internet forums that my eyes dried out and I got a twitch. But there’s a lot of help available on the internet if you ask the right questions.
  • A lot of narrators seem to have a background in theatre. Is that something you think is essential to a successful narration career?
    • I think a theatre background is an excellent addition to any performance-based career. You simply won’t get the same depth from acting into a vacuum all the time. Speaking into a microphone feels like that to me — we are our own directors, coaches, and engineers.
  • What type of training have you undergone?
    • I studied with Paul Meier, one of the top dialect coaches in the world. I have a BA in theatre from the University of Kansas. And I’m always taking acting classes. Any serious actor should never stop learning and coaching.
  • How do you manage to avoid burn-out? What do you do to maintain your enthusiasm for narrating?
    • Honestly, I get burned out vocally before mentally. I have to take breaks and rotate with other projects.
  • Are you an audiobook listener? What about the audiobook format appeals to you?
    • Absolutely. I have to drive a lot, so I cycle between about a dozen audiobooks and podcasts at any given time.

Release + Review: PRETTY UGLY ( Addicted Hearts Book 2 ) By JANE ANTHONY @JAnthonyAuthor

Title: Pretty Ugly

Series: Addicted Hearts Book 2

Author: Jane Anthony

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: April 2, 2018

We were meant to live happily ever after, 
a promise I sealed with a band of gold.
Our road was rocky and rough, yet worth every mark etched on my heart.
Kat is my addiction. 
I’m her salvation.
Two hearts joined in pain.
Yet beneath the surface of our intended bliss, a tsunami was brewing.
An unstoppable force driven by deceit.
Now I’m back in New York — the city that stole my soul — caught between the future that awaits and a past that won’t let go.
I promised us a happy ending
But the ugliest lies are the ones we tell ourselves.
 
 

“Once again, Jane Anthony delivers a heartfelt, emotional, and sometimes soul-shredding love story that will stay with me forever.” International Best-Selling Author Dani Rene’ 

 
REVIEW TAG blog_review 
Pretty Ugly carries on from Pretty Reckless, where we have Chase and Kat getting ready for their wedding day. Unfortunately things don’t always go to plan. I think this book was more intense than the last one. I loved it Jane Anthony had me yelling at my kindle, and I was in from the beginning cheering when needed, smiling when warranted.
This is a must read if you have read Pretty Reckless, if you haven’t start there so you understand the dynamics of their relationship with each other. If you want a pretty Romance then this isn’t for you. This is much more.

——————

Ivy Hayes

Dating can be a rocky journey. Once the new shine wears off, you may end up with a case of buyer’s remorse.
That’s where I come in. I set the backdrop and coach you through the breakup.
Don’t want overblown drama, hard feelings, or a drink tossed in your face? Then I’m your fairy godmother, child.

Becket Jones

As an NFL quarterback, endorsement ads and the media pandering after me are all part of the game.
Ivy Hayes is the first woman who doesn’t care about my money and the notoriety that goes along with it.
But I’m a long-term guy, and she operates strictly in the now. Which means I need to bring my A-game.

Otherwise, I’ll end up getting ditched.

DITCHED_BASICS

REVIEW: 4.5 stars

Wow I have been waiting for this book from RC Boldt, Becket was such a great guy in He Loves Me Knot. We get to know him on a more personal level so he deserves a great woman, and Ivy is a great female lead.
When Ivy was in college and with the help of her friends Darcy and Leif they start the company that later becomes Ditched. Beckett is impressed and falls for Ivy straight away. Unfortunately Ivy’s background causes the relationship problems.
This book is as usual, an entertaining romance with a lot more substance that I have come to expect from this Author. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and now I can’t wait for the next one. At the end of the book there is a link to a Bonus content the puts the icing on the cake even though the end put a big smile on my face after all the emotions I was put through while reading.

Review: Audiobook UNLOVED By KATY REGNERY, Narrated by Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell.

UNLOVED AUDIO BOOK

Unloved, a love story

Length: 10 hrs and 31 mins

BLURB:

My name is Cassidy Porter…
My father, Paul Isaac Porter, was executed twenty years ago for the brutal murder of twelve innocent girls.
Though I was only eight-years-old at the time, I am aware – every day of my life – that I am his child, his only son.
To protect the world from the poison in my veins, I live a quiet life, off the grid, away from humanity.
I promised myself, and my mother, not to infect innocent lives with the darkness that swirls within me, waiting to make itself known.
It’s a promise I would have kept…if Brynn Cadogan hadn’t stumbled into my life.
Now I exist between heaven and hell: falling for a woman who wants to love me, while all along reminding myself that I must remain…
Unloved.

UNLOVED TEASER 1

REVIEW:

What a heartbreaking, but beautiful love story this book is. This is the story of Brynn whose fiancee was shot a pop concert two years before. Out of desperation Brynn decides to take his mobile phone to his favourite mountain and bury his phone and say a real goodbye.
We have Cassidy whose father had been sent to prison for rape and murder. He lives of the grid in his grandfather’s house where he has lived since his father’s arrest. His mother brought him with her when he was still a child. He has lived on his own for years, his promised his mother he would never hurt anyone so he kept to his self.
One day to feel part of the human race his walks up the mountain out of everyone’s sight. Until he hears screaming and comes upon this creep stabbing a woman he throws the man off her and he sees Brynn. He takes her home and treats her stab wounds and looks after her. They can’t help falling in love. Cassidy knows nothing can be permanent. You can help but fall in love with Cassidy and deep down you know he won’t hurt Brynn.
This has dark themes, but you can feel the emotion between them. Cassidy knows he can’t keep her because of what runs in his veins and the promise he made to mother and grandfather. Katy always knows how to pull me into a story and plays on my emotions like a piano. There is always plenty of drama and angst before we get the hea. This is a standalone with no cliffhangers. This story makes you think about all the victims of violent crime.
If you like to read something different, then you would love this. I read this in one seating, but remained on my mind much longer.

The first part of this review is for the book which was one of my favourites, so as soon as I saw the Audiobook was available I had to have it straight away.  I was blown away by the narrators especially Joe Arden as Cassidy. In conclusion the Audiobook brought the book to life and heightened my enjoyment of the story.

FIVE-STARS

Audiobook Blog Tour: ACCEPTABLE RISK By CANDACE BLEVINS, Narrated Noah Michael Levine

 

 

Author: Candace Blevins

Narrator: Noah Michael Levine

Length: 2 hours 57 minutes

Publisher: Candace Blevins

Released: Feb. 21, 2018

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Bethany has joked for years that if she ever settles down, it’ll be with a harem of men, only it isn’t a joke anymore.

Mac is a new werewolf, and still must be watched at every moment to be sure he stays in control. His kink has always been ménage, so when he overhears the beautiful redhead at the bar wanting to take on not only him, but also the werewolf and wereleopard chaperoning his night out… he has to convince them to let him take her home. He might not be trustworthy with a human woman alone, yet, but with two powerful shapeshifters in bed with them, what could go wrong?

Previously published in the Every Which Way Anthology.

 

Candace Blevins has published more than thirty books. She lives with her husband of twenty years and their two daughters. When not working or driving young teens all over the place, she can be found reading, writing, meditating, or swimming. The family’s beloved, goofy, retired racing greyhound is usually at her side as she writes, quietly keeping her company.

Candace writes Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, Contemporary BDSM Romance, and a kick-ass Motorcycle Club series.

Her urban fantasy series, Only Human, gives us a world where weredragons, werewolves, werelions, three different species of vampires, and a variety of other mythological beings exist.

Candace’s two paranormal romance series, The Chattanooga Supernaturals and The Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Club, are both sister series to the Only Human series, and give some secondary characters their happily ever after.

Her contemporary Safeword series gives us characters who happen to have some extreme kinks. Relationships can be difficult enough without throwing power exchange into the mix, and her books show characters who care enough about each other to fight to make the relationship work. Each couple in the Safeword series gives the reader a different take on the lifestyle.

You can visit Candace on the web at candaceblevins.com and feel free to friend her on Facebook at facebook.com/candacesblevins and Goodreads at goodreads.com/CandaceBlevins.

Narrator Bio

Noah Michael Levine is an Audie Award-Winning audiobook narrator and producer living in beautiful Nyack, NY. His over 180 titles include almost every genre. While he loves his work completely – and collaborating with all kinds of different authors, he does not love writing about himself in the third person.

WebsiteTwitterFacebookInstagram

 

 


Acceptable Risk was originally from an anthology, but now has been released as a novella. The Audiobook is quite short only 2hrs 57mins, so this t is a peek into the one of Candace’s kinky worlds. This one is like most women’s dreams. There you are sitting with your best friend and 3 gorgeous men walk into the bar and you turn to your friend in this case its Jenny. “I wouldn’t mind those three in my harem,” not expecting the men to hear what I said. One problem they are all shifters and they heard, and volunteer for the harem. This is an entertaining story with plenty of sex and kink, but I found it funny in places. The narrator was faultless, a good narrator for me is someone that does multiple voices, that when you’re in the story without thinking the accent on that one is dodgy. The guys were individual, and it was like listening to a group of guys chatting.

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Candace Blevins. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Q&A with Author Candace Blevins

  • Was a possible audiobook recording something you were conscious of while writing?
    • Not at all. I wrote this for an anthology years ago, and published it as a novella when the rights returned to me. It’s a nice entry into both my Chattanooga Supernaturals series and my Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Club series, so it seemed the perfect choice for my first foray into audio. When I eventually look for narrators for Only Human, my urban fantasy series, I’m going to want a male and female working in tandem, but for my first venture, I thought I should keep it as simple as possible.
  • How did you select your narrator?
    • I have the most awesome reader group ever (Candace’s Kinksters, feel free to look us up on Facebook and come play with us!), and I asked them to tell me their favorite narrators. I listened to the top ten men they listed (with three men and one woman in the menage, it seemed logical to hire a man), and I loved Noah Michael Levine’s voice.
  • How closely did you work with your narrator before and during the recording process? Did you give them any pronunciation tips or special insight into the characters?
    • Noah is a dream to work with. I told him where each character was from, a little about their personalities, and how I envisioned they sounded. It was important we didn’t get a caricature of a southern accent for Jonathan and Bethany, and I think he did a great job.
  • How do you manage to avoid burn-out? What do you do to maintain your enthusiasm for writing?
    • I have so many stories in my head, and I write in several different genres, so burnout isn’t a problem for me. My bikers let me play with antiheroes, my urban fantasy series lets me move away from romance, and my dark series lets me get down and dirty. And of course, I have some romance series where I can let people find their happily ever after. Also, if I tire of writing werewolves, I can switch to vampires, or lions, or even ravens or grizzly bears.
  • Is there a particular part of this story that you feel is more resonating in the audiobook performance than in the book format?
    • Noah Michael Levine’s voice is melt-in-your panties good, especially when he goes all Dom as Ranger. Yummm.
  • What do you say to those who view listening to audiobooks as “cheating” or as inferior to “real reading”?
    • I don’t see it that way at all. Some people learn by seeing, others by hearing. It only makes sense that the auditory crowd would prefer to listen rather than look. All the words are the same — it’s the same book, no matter which format you choose.
  • In your opinion, what are the pros and cons of writing a stand-alone novel vs. writing a series?
    • I’ve only written one stand-alone, and it’s currently banned on Amazon. My publisher is fighting it, but in the meantime, you can find Absolute Power Exchange at Kobo, Apple, Smashwords, BN, and other vendors. The con, obviously, is that once I was done with the couple, I’ll never have an opportunity to visit them again. In a series, I love revisiting couples after their book’s complete, seeing them through the eyes of others, and watching them live out their happily ever after.On the pro side, it was so much easier to write a book without having to constantly stay on top of how the events I was writing would impact the timeline of the rest of the series, or to make sure I stayed true to the rules and personalities of characters from other books. I have four series in one universe, and while I love being able to swap characters around, it takes a lot to keep everything straight.
  • What’s next for you?
    • The eleventh book in my motorcycle club series just released, and I’m so excited to finally be able to share it with readers.I’ve been working on an epic Faerie story on and off for over five years, and last year I put it on Radish, so I was kind of forced to finish it since I had to write to keep up with the chapter releases. It’s currently going under massive revisions, and will be released as four books, titled Slave, Lady, Consort, and Queen. I don’t have release dates yet, but I’m hoping to be able to release each book a month apart.

Review: VERY IRRESTISTIBLE PLAYBOY ( Billionaire Batchelors Book one ) By LILA MONROE

 

VeryIrresistablePlayboyBookCover6x9_HIGH[136438]

 

VERY IRRESISTIBLE PLAYBOY
By Lila Monroe
Release Day: January 22nd, 2018
Billionaire Bachelors Book 1

“We’re racing the clock on a crazy treasure hunt, and my sexy new boss wants to show me where X marks my G-spot?!”

Hot bachelor Max Carlisle is heir to a media empire, tabloid catnip, and… wants to hire me to be his fake fiancee. I know what it takes to keep a billionaire in line, but signing up for seven days in close quarters with this Very Irresistible Playboy? It’s just asking for trouble. The kind of thrilling, reckless trouble I could use a little more of since my career is currently ass-backwards in a mud bath with six shih-tzus (don’t ask).

So do I:
a) Take the job, and bicker wildly every step of the way?
b) Embark on a mad-cap treasure hunt to claim his billion-dollar inheritance?
c) Try my hardest not to fall head-over-heels in love with him and wind up having the best sex of my life?
d) All of the above?

Something tells me I’m about to be way out of my league… and under the most handsome, infuriating man I’ve ever met. But with a fortune on the line, can we beat out his crazy relatives to win the prize? And will our fake relationship be game over at the finish line?

 

EXCERPT:

“I think we should establish some ground rules,” I announce, as we drive along the curving ocean road. Palm trees are swaying, the ocean is glittering aquamarine blue, and it’s all so gorgeous and romantic, I need to cling to some semblance of professionalism.
Max groans. “Do we have to?”
“Yes,” I say firmly. “We’re pretending to be in a relationship, so things could get . . .”
Hot . . . Tempting . . .
“Complicated,” I finally decide.
“OK.” Max sounds amused. “What did you have in mind?”
“No touching below the waist,” I say. “No PDA except holding hands and quick kisses. No tongue. And no talking about our imaginary sex life.”
I’m a little too hot and bothered just imagining we have an imaginary sex life.
“Fine.” Max grins. “I promise not to ravish you in front of my entire family.”

REVIEW:

This is another Billionaire romance, but a very enjoyable billionaire romance. We have Max a playboy who wants very little to with his family’s business empire. And Hallie photographer, who for $50.000 has to pose as his girlfriend for a week.
They are going to visit his grandfather for his birthday, as well as the rest of his family. So for moral support Max taking a loving girlfriend. Hallie and Max have chemistry in spades, and very soon they both realise they get on so well. There was so much more to Max and they couldn’t help but fall in love.
As we all know the road to true love is never simple. This is a cut above the usual Billionaire troupe. It has real entertainment value, one minute I was fanning myself, and then I was laughing. Max was a hunk, and a real nice guy and  Hallie was a woman with principles as well as intelligent and ambitious. I hope this comes out in Audio because I will be in line to buy. I love my Audios.

OLFK_TEASER1

Welcome to the famed resort, The Hathaway at Dragonfly Beach, where newlyweds come to honeymoon, where anniversary couples celebrate milestones, and where broken hearts find a place to heal.

After her best friend is jilted at the altar, maid of honor Lilly Durand whisks the bride to Dragonfly Beach and its legendary hotel, determined to help her overcome her misery. Lilly won’t admit it, but she’s hurting too. During the few days of pre-wedding festivities, a powerful attraction had grown between her and the handsome and confident best man, Alec Thatcher. Now she’ll never see him again, but she’s decided to consider that a good thing. This way her inconvenient crush can’t turn into something so dangerous as love. But then, to her dismay, she discovers Alec is just a room key away at what some call the Heartbreak Hotel.

Alec Thatcher doesn’t have the time or inclination for long-term romance. Serial dating has suited his confirmed-bachelor status just fine—until he meets Lilly Durand and his world turns on its axis. She claims to be as relationship-averse as he, but when the two of them are together he can’t recall his own reasons against commitment. Though Lilly touches his heart and soul, she’s as cautious as she is sexy. With a stubborn streak a mile long, Alec will have to exert all his powers of persuasion to give Lilly her last first kiss…

REVIEW:

This is the first book in a new series called Heartbreak Hotel, where you go to get over your heartbreak. In this case we meet Lilly who has come with her friend Audra, who was left at the altar. Lilly is very worried about Audra when her locks herself in her room and doesn’t come out. All Lilly can think about was the best man Alec Thatcher, and the near miss with the chemistry between them.
Lilly is unaware that Alec is related to the family who own the resort, and his parents are celebrating 35th wedding anniversary with a weeklong celebration with friends and family.
It was entertaining to watch Lilly and Alec both only wanting a non-serious sexual encounter. Both have reasons not to become serious, but love waits for no one. A sweet and at times funny romance that leaves you with a smile on your face.

A great start to a new series, where the scene was set in a lovely backdrop of the Heartbreak Hotel, and some of the characters that run the place.

ARC REVIEW: MURDER NOTES ( Lilah Love Series #1 ) by New York Times Bestselling Author LISA RENEE JONES @LisaReneeJones

MURDER NOTES

LISA RENEE JONES

MARCH 27TH

 

MURDER NOTE BOOK COVER

SYNOPSIS:

New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones’s heart-pounding thriller of a woman’s secrets—and a past that’s about to come out of hiding…

As an FBI profiler, it’s Lilah Love’s job to think like a killer. And she is very good at her job. When a series of murders surface—the victims all stripped naked and shot in the head—Lilah’s instincts tell her it’s the work of an assassin, not a serial killer. But when the case takes her back to her hometown in the Hamptons and a mysterious but unmistakable connection to her own life, all her assumptions are shaken to the core.

Thrust into a troubled past she’s tried to shut the door on, Lilah’s back in the town where her father is mayor, her brother is police chief, and she has an intimate history with the local crime lord’s son, Kane Mendez. The two share a devastating secret, and only Kane understands Lilah’s own darkest impulses. As more corpses surface, so does a series of anonymous notes to Lilah, threatening to expose her. Is the killer someone in her own circle? And is she the next target?

REVIEW:

It doesn’t matter what I read of Lisa Renee Jones, I get pulled into the story to the exclusion of anything else. I know this would be a murder investigation but that was it. As with any book written by Lisa, we have a strong intelligent female FBI agent Lilah Love, who was as thorny as any detective I’ve read about.

Coming from a rich background and being attractive is not an asset for an FBI profiler who moved to LA from The Hamptons to escape the family name. Unfortunately after a string of murders Lilah has to go home to follow the killer and straight into her past.
This was great I love every minute of this book, I don’t where to start except I can’t for wait for the next one. The longer the book goes on, the more layers and players appear. Until it appears like there is no one for Lilah to trust, including some of her family.

If you love Lisa’s complicated storylines you will be hooked, and waiting for book number two. This is a different for Lisa’s other works where the love story is not centre stage. The is about an FBI Profiler, and her story. If I could give this more than 5 stars I would. This is definitely a cut above normal.

FIVE-STARS
