Dani Rene-Among Ash and Ember

Dani Rene has come out with a new release, and oh my. Among Ash and Ember wrung me out and made me all emotional.

Katerina is 18, almost 19. She lost her parents a couple of years ago when their florist shop caught on fire. She had to spend the last couple of years in foster care, and it wasn’t good. Then she turned 18 and discovered that she owed a lot of money because of her parents. She isn’t qualified to do a lot, but luckily she has fallen in with a safe friend who has helped her become an escort. Is it the best job ever? Nope. Does it let her pay her bills and pay off the loans her father took out? Yup. Just don’t call her Katerina when she’s on the job, there she is Flame.

Ash and Ember are twin brothers. They have a proposition for Katerina. They are going to pay for her to go to college. They will let her live with them, in her own wing, and help her out in any way possible. The brothers have their own reasons for doing what they are doing. They are keeping secrets together and keeping secrets from each other. They can afford to do this because Ash is now running their father’s company, which is neither fun or easy, but he does it reasonably well.

There are a lot of secrets going on in here. Ash and Ember have secrets of their own that they are keeping from Kat and from each other. They have a big joint secret that they are keeping from Kat. Kat has some of her own secrets too, but I don’t think that they have as much of an impact on the story as the ones the guys are keeping.

I completely understand why Ash and Ember are doing what they are doing. I don’t agree with the way that they went about things, but I can understand why they felt that they had to do things the way that they did. I guess I just stand with Kat more than I do with them. I don’t like being lied to, and I really don’t like people having secrets from me. I will pick and prod until I get the secret out of them, whether or not it would hurt me. I think that’s probably how Kat feels about it too.

I love the names of Flame, Ember, and Ash. They just fit together so very well. It’s a natural progression to me, and I can see how it fits each of the characters and their roles, at least in my opinion.

This book really did give me all the feelz and I would love to see more of these guys.

I don’t think I have anything to put here.

Well, go check it out. Happy reading!

Measha Stone-Valor

Valor is the 11th book in the Cavalieri Della Morte shared world, and I think that this is the last one on my blog calendar, at least I’m pretty sure it is. Measha has brought us a couple that just would not leave my head. Dustan and Cherise both insisted that there was more to the story, and wouldn’t listen to me when I told them that I had read the book and that was all there was. Dustan is a pushy, dominant asshole. Hopefully, they’ll leave me alone when I’m done with this.

Dustan is one of the CDM, and Arthur has sent him out on a new job. This job is to get rid of a guy named Antonio Merde. He’s apparently skimming off the top from his family. I had to laugh at his name, because merde is shit in French, so every time his name came up, I read it as shit. My inner 12 year old was amused. Anyway, Dustan is going to kill this guy. He’s been sitting in a bar waiting for Merde to come and do his business. He keeps to a routine, which lets Dustan know when and where he can off him. The only thing he didn’t plan on was the hot woman who walked up and sat down next to him.

Cherise, who tells Dustan her name is Cherry, is trying to break out of her shell. She has dressed herself up, given herself a fun nickname, and gone to a bar she wouldn’t normally go. And then she saw Dustan. Since she was nervous as all get out, she needed someone to shelter behind, and Dustan worked. When he walked out the back of the bar, she decided to follow. Much to her chagrin.

Dustan was both more hardcore and lighter than some of the other heroes in this world. Which, don’t ask me how that works, but that’s what I think, and it sorta works for him. He doesn’t seem as much on the dark side, if you know what I mean. Yeah, he’s an assassin, but he doesn’t seem as gritty and… Ugh, I can’t come up with the right word to describe it. I know what I mean, but I can’t make it come out of my head to the screen. That’s totally frustrating. Don’t get me wrong, he’s not your happy, fluffy, dancing assassin a la Sam Rockwell in Mr. Right. If he gets the order, he’s going to kill you. If you do him wrong, he’s going to kill you. And he’ll do it without hesitation.

Cherise was a mix too. She’s both bold and retiring, which is a really interesting juxtaposition. When she gets scared, she gets assertive, snarky, and mouthy. It’s a lot easier to be all of those things than it is to be scared. When she’s not so scared, she’s more in her head and ready to hide away. I can really relate, because snarky and mouthy is my fall back when I’m upset, scared, tired, angry, well, you get the idea. Of course, it works better for me, because Dustan isn’t telling me that bad things come to bad girls and waiting with a belt for my ass. I did like her a lot, mostly because I did relate to her so much.

One thing I did find really interesting is that Arthur barely makes any appearance in the book, and none of the other Cavalieri are in there at all.

Bobby. Yeah.

Ok, that’s all I have to say about this one. Go check it out! Happy reading!

Ally Vance-Delinquent

Ally Vance is the next Cavalieri Della Morte author I’m reviewing. Her contribution to the shared world series is Delinquent, the story of Seth Galahad and Leeann. As a reminder, each book is a standalone, but the series is all interconnected, so you will get some crossover with other main characters showing up in the book. Arthur is in all of the books, in one form or another, just because he’s the leader of the CDM, so I’m not counting him as a true crossover character.

Seth is the youngest of the CDM that we’ve met so far, he’s right around 20. He’s very impulsive and yet disciplined, if that makes sense. While he’s still an assassin, he’s often the one that Arthur sends out to collect debts. Either he gets the money or people get dead. Caryn owes Arthur money, so he sends Seth out after her. She calls Seth and tells him that she has the repayment for him. What she doesn’t necessarily tell him is that it’s a woman.

Leeann has a brother, Arron. Arron is a fuckhole. He has a gambling problem. He’s supposed to be going to meetings to handle his gambling, but apparently he doesn’t think he needs to do that. Instead, he decides what he really needs to do is to keep gambling. So he does, and when he doesn’t win, he bets the one thing that he shouldn’t, his little sister. He told her the night he came home after losing her, and locked her in her bedroom. That night, two thugs came and took her away, locking her in a basement, and being not all that nice to her for days on end. Then along comes Seth.

I have a 23 year old son who is often impulsive AF, and the brain hasn’t really matured until around 25, so I totally get Seth. I understand exactly who he is, and where he is coming from. That doesn’t mean that I don’t want to give him a dope slap upside the back of his head. There is a time or two when he realllllly needs one. Overall, though, I do like him.

Leeann is a sweet and loving person, she even loves her brother even if he’s a fuckhole. I really do like her. Even though she’s sweet, that doesn’t mean that she’s not fierce, and she totally is. She keeps trying to get away from any and everyone, no matter what. She’s just going to keep fighting, which means she’s full of fire, and I like that fire. I think that she’ll be perfect for Seth and he’ll be good for her.

gambling-4178466_1920

There are some hints to certain things, if you are paying attention to them. They are very, very tiny hints, so you need to watch for them. And no, I’m not going to tell you what they are or what they’re too. I can be mean like that.

OK, that’s all for today. Go check it out! Happy reading!

 

Eris Adderly-Bass-Ackwards

So, sometime in 2018 or maybe 2017, one of my favorite Literotica authors, Death&Taxes, started an interesting little story called Bass-Ackwards. And of course D&T just happens to be Eris Adderly, and she has now taken Asshole Bill and Christina Lee down from Lit and put it up for sale for everyone to enjoy. I waited, panting, for each and every chapter to be posted, and begged in Eris’ group for the next one to come out. And finally the story was finished, and it was perfect.

So, here’s how the story goes. Christina works for a truck rental place called Haul Ash, for her boss, Asshole Bill. But, that’s not all Christina has on her plate. She’s also the only family member around who can or will take care of her grandfather, who has a little bit of hoarding problem. She has to go to court one day to handle it. The problem with that is that she has to be at work at the same time, and Bill loves his schedule. He loves his schedule so much that he should probably marry it. But that would give us a whole other kind of story and probably not one that was so interesting as this one. So, Christian dresses up, looking all cute, in an actual dress and the bare minimum of makeup, and sashays her ass into work to ask Asshole Bill for a day off. Bill, of course, doesn’t want to let her, but he all of a sudden has a brainflash, he tells her that if she’ll bend over the table and let him fuck her, she can have tomorrow off work. If she lets him have her ass, she can have the rest of today off too.

Sexual harassment much?

Meanwhile, Bill has feeeeeeeelings for Christina Lee Dodd. And he’s pretty sure that this is the only way that he’s ever going to be able to get to touch her. Of course, he didn’t think that she would say yes or do it, so no one was as surprised as him when she bent over and let him fuck her. And since he has no clue she would do that, he has no actual plan here. Except for a little bit more sexual harassment, maybe. He tells her to wear dresses from now on, and makes a deal with her.

I love Eris’ writing. She is so incredibly descriptive, and it really makes her work feel rich and detailed. Like there’s one line that is “Cinnamon heat between her things that shouldn’t exist in response to an opening act like that.” There’s just something about the way that sentence worked in the story and how it fits in with itself that is just pretty awesome, if you ask me.

I love the interaction between Bill and Christina. I love that while everyone thinks that Bill is an asshole, he really isn’t. There’s an actual person under there. He’s just taciturn, and that can be very easily seen as being an asshole. I love how fierce Christina is when it comes to taking care of her grandfather and helping him out and doing right for him.

 

adorable-animal-breed-5549

I think one of my favorite things about the entire story is when Bill shows up at her grandfather’s house and helps her clean. She didn’t ask for help, he didn’t offer. He just showed up and pitched in. It’s not like that was a nice job or anything. But he just was there.

OK, that’s all I have to say about this one. Go check it out! Happy reading!

 

Claire Thompson-Castaways

You remember how I said that I would be featuring more Claire Thompson? Well, here you go. Castaways isn’t out for Kindle yet, but it is in paperback and the Kindle version is on pre-order and it will show up on your Kindle 2/3. This is different from the other stuff I’ve blogged about from Claire, because this one is vanilla-ish. Yes, she does write vanilla. I qualify it with the -ish because there is some fairly mild power exchange stuff going on, but that could just be because of the nature of the relationship between the guys.

So, here’s the story. Sam is an up and coming artist from NYC. He’s been working really hard to get ready for a big show, and his last one was wildly successful. His friend, Tim, who is also the gallery owner has given him a ticket for a Caribbean cruise. Sam has been spending a lot of time looking at the ocean and taking pictures so that he can remember the light.

Donovan is two years out of law school. He’s an associate at a high powered law firm. His father is a lawyer who helped him get this place, and he’s always pushed Donovan to do better, be better, yadda, yadda, yadda. He’s getting ready for his first big case, but he’s decided that he needs a vacation before his big case because he’s fighting burnout. One night, he bumps into Sam on deck as Sam is looking at the sea.

That chance meeting doesn’t seem like it would be anything, and it probably woudn’t be, if the ship they were on didn’t catch fire and sink that night. Donovan gets swept overboard by a huge wave and the current catches him and sweeps him away from everyone else. Sam gets knocked down and ends up a little out of it and all the lifeboats leave without him. Luckily he finds one last life raft, but he goes the same way as Donovan and fortuitously picks him up, where they find themselves floating further and further away from everyone else and on to their very own deserted island.

Now, this could be considered a first time gay novel, but I think to classify it that way would be a disservice to the book. There is so much more to it than just one guy finding out that he’s attracted to another guy and trying to deal with it. For one thing, Sam doesn’t identify as gay. He doesn’t identify with any label, really. There is a really beautiful passage where he talks about liking men and women and what attracts him to either. He says that he’s attracted to people, but that he emotionally connects with men. I love that whole section because it shows how much time and thought that Sam has put into who he is. It’s not easy to figure all that stuff out at the best of times and being alive is a continuity and you aren’t going to be the same person today as you are a year from now or you were a year ago, so putting a lot of time and energy into figuring yourself out is totally awesome. I love that Claire gives Sam the space to be that person. You don’t see a lot of characters like that, and I really would like to. Donovan is really interesting. He is really confused about what’s going on and his feelings. Sam is right there with him though.

pexels-photo-853199

I know no one wants to think that a disaster like a shipwreck could be good for someone, but I think that I could argue a case that it was almost a good thing for Donovan. He’d never had time to just be or to just connect with anyone, and the month spent on a deserted island with someone like Sam would give him the time to just be and to figure out who he is. Sam is a total superstar throughout the thing, and really sort of guides Donovan through the whole process, but not by taking his hand and leading him, more by just being there. Like I said, totally awesome.

OK, that’s all I have to say about this one today. When it releases on 2/3 go check it out or put it on preorder now. Happy reading!

Natasha Knight-Torn

A few days ago, I reviewed the first book of this series, Taken, here. Today, we have the second book in the duet, Torn. Because this is the second book of a duet, there are going to be spoilers for the first book here. I will try to avoid them as much as possible, because you know I don’t want to spoil anyone, but it’s the nature of the beast. If you haven’t read Taken yet, I highly recommend it, especially now that we have the second book out. So, if you have read the story, and you are ready for my review, take a leap off my cliff with me.

beach-blue-sky-cliff-555709.jpg

OK, if you’ve come down here, you are either ready to read my review or you like spoilers. Either way, you were warned.

We left off with Lucinda shooting Sebastian and Ethan capturing Helena, after Lucinda set her up. This does not bode well for either of them because we all know that Lucinda is a psycho. I mean, she should totally be diagnosed, because damn.

Lucinda takes Helena and puts her in a stone room somewhere underground in Venice. It’s dark, it’s dank, it’s cold, and Helena is there all alone. Well, all alone except for Lucinda and Ethan. Lucinda takes her hate out on Helena and tries to get Ethan to rape her, after all, she’s a Willow Girl, and that’s what they are there for, right? Only Ethan isn’t willing to go there because he’s still afraid of Sebastian. Which he totally should be. Then Lucinda leaves Helena down, in the dark, really all alone this time. Helena keeps counting on Sebastian to save her, but the longer she’s in the cold dark, the less hope she has of him coming for her.

Natasha has done an excellent job with this book and with the duet in general. The way that her characters interact with each other, in whatever combination, is great. She really shows the tension between Gregory and Sebastian, and how hard everything happening is on both of them. She also does a fantastic job with Lucinda. Lucinda is a predator, plain and simple. She has taken poor Ethan and groomed him into what he is. I mean, it’s not her fault that he acquired brain damage, but she’s taken advantage of that and turned him into her puppet. Of course, he could’ve tried to go against her, and we saw that he can make decisions that Lucinda doesn’t like, but still, she has twisted and groomed him. I almost feel sorry for him. Almost. I said elsewhere that there was nothing that Natasha could do to redeem Lucinda for me. I mean, Lucinda could find god, become a nun, and spend the rest of her life working in a leper colony, and I would still totally hate the bitch. And that still holds true.

I can totally see more books coming out of this world, and I really hope that Natasha writes them.

FHR Dexter Chapel Mausoleum

I find the death of Sebastian’s mother to be a little too serendipitous for Lucinda. I think that she had her hand in at least his mother’s death, and possibly his father’s death as well. It’s nasty as hell that she might have killed Seb’s mom, considering that they were sisters.

I want to know who Helena’s sister Amy is mixed up with. Since she’s in the same general area as Ethan, I really want to say that it’s him, but I don’t know.

I hope we get stories for both Ethan and Gregory, because I can see how Natasha may have set them up for both.

That’s all I have to say on this one. If you like dark, go check this out. Happy reading!

Skye Warren-Evolution of Man

So, Skye Warren has this town called Tanglewood where a great many of her stories take place. And Tanglewood is one fucked up town. There is all kinds of crime, intrigue, and total craziness. And it’s into the total craziness that Skye has taken us with Evolution of Man. This book is the second of a duology, with the first being Survival of the Richest. If you haven’t read Survival, then you should immediately put down this review and read it. You won’t have any clue as to what is going on in Evolution. There are going to be spoilers to Survival in this post. There’s just no way around it.

So, Evolution starts up 6 months after Survival ended. Christopher and Sutton have both walked away from Harper, and she now has control of her trust fund. Her protest against the destruction of the library kind of worked, in that it stopped the library from being completely destroyed, but it’s in terrible shape right now. Harper has bought a home in Tanglewood for her and her mother to live in while her mother is dying, and she has spent $2 billion on buying the library. Harper negotiated with Christopher who raised the price insanely high.

Now Harper is trying to get the library restored, but Christopher has talked to all the construction companies in the area and no one will go for it. So she turns to Sutton, who tells her that he’ll take a look at it for her, but he only wants to be her business partner, nothing else. No sex, no relationship, no nothing.

Harper is also having to deal with her mother’s life coming to an end. Since her mother refused any treatment, she’s been getting weaker and weaker. She has signed up with a hospice service, but Harper is trying to avoid the Death Plan or any discussions of her death. Harper works very hard at staying positive for her mother, but it isn’t always possible.

There is a whole lot going on in this story. It’s very emotion laden, I mean, how can it not be? Just the fact that Harper is losing her beloved mother is more than enough to sink a lot of emotion in it. But then you have the whole Christopher/Sutton/Harper triangle. That’s even more of a load of intensity, and it’s that intensity that Skye does so well. I thought that Evolution was a good finish to the duology and it managed to carry the emotion from Survival over really nicely. It was also nice to peek in on old friends like Aubrey and Gabriel, Bea and Hugo, Damon, and Blue. It’s really nice how Skye weaves old friends in through the new stories. It doesn’t feel like it’s a forced kind of thing, just woven in nicely.

maxresdefault

I’m happy that Harper ended up with Christopher and not Sutton, but I’m not entirely sure I wouldn’t have been almost as happy if we had ended up with an MMF menage. We came close to having an MMF sex scene, and it was really hot.

OK, that’s all I have to say about this one. I think I’m going to have to go reread all of the Tanglewood books this weekend. Happy reading!

Vanessa Vale-Montana Wild

This is the 2nd or 3rd Vanessa Vale book I’ve read, but only the first one I’ve blogged about. This is a rather sweet and light romance with a touch of funny and more than a touch of meddling sex shop owner. Montana Wild is the 4th of the Small Town Romance books that all take place around Bozeman, Montana. I haven’t read the other three, and while there are recurring characters, like Goldie and George the Gnome, I didn’t feel like I was lost or anything. The book was complete in and of itself, so no worries there.

Violet is a 1st grade teacher. Now that school’s out for the summer, she’s subbing for her twin sister at Goldilocks, Bozeman’s best sex shop. OK, Bozeman’s ONLY sex shop. She has to deal with Goldie, who, while a lovely woman, is nosy and pushy. And among other things, she has pushed Violet into writing word porn, or as we might call it, a smutty novel. Yay for smutty novels! But Violet is sort of maybe ashamed and embarrassed about it, but Goldie isn’t. So Goldie’s getting a cover made for it.

One day, the phone rings at Goldilocks, and it turns out to be Mike. Mike the podiatrist. Mike who was so close to Violet when they were younger. She and Mike lost their virginity together, then he left and didn’t come back for 10 years. Violet was pretty sure that showed her exactly where her place in Mike’s life was, and she’s been hurt and maybe just a little bit bitter about it ever since. But now, Mike needs her. Or rather, her twin sister, who is off on a road trip with her new man. So, Violet it is. You see, Mike is in Alaska at a family reunion at his uncle’s house, along with his mother and father, some cousins and their kids, and a pair of identical male twins who only speak French. And there is a crazy next neighbor who is recently divorced and who is just positive that she is Mike’s soulmate. So Mike needs a girlfriend, and Violet fits the description, namely female and available. Only when she gets to Alaska, she finds out that she’s not just his girlfriend, she’s now his fiancee, complete with a hideously ugly ring.

I both felt sorry for Mike and Violet and laughed at some of the things that happened. It seemed like everything that just started to spiral out of control. They were being pushed together but they were having their own issues that kept pushing them apart. Violet had a hard time letting go old hurt but Mike wasn’t really helping all that much either. All in all, I really enjoyed this one, and it was a nice light change of pace.

bait-catch-coho-salmon-1058295

Who knew that the way to a woman’s heart was going fishing for salmon?

Mike should’ve stopped and thought about how his actions would’ve hurt Violet a long time before he actually did.

I would probably strangle a whole lot of people were I Mike and Violet. I get why they did what they did, but seriously, that’s almost mean.

OK, that’s all I have to say about this one! Go check it and the rest of the series out. Happy reading!

Sara Wylde-Truth or Dare

I don’t often read new adult books. Mostly because I have a 23-year-old son, and if I want drama and angst, I’ll just go talk to him. The drama llama often resides in my house. But, when I saw the series name, the ’80s child in me perked right up. The series title is Fast Times at Ridgemont Hall. Yeah, see why I had to read Sara Wylde’s Truth or Dare?

Our major players are Asher Warren & Huntingdon Dane III. He calls her Cinder Girl, she calls him The Bane of My Existence ™, so you can tell, they get along just like best buds, right? They’ve known each other for years, having both been children of rich parents and having gone through the same schools. And now that they are in college, they happen to share a dorm pod. That’s 4 bedrooms around a common room. And oh yeah, Asher’s father left her and her mom broke and ran off with his secretary, never to be seen in these parts again. She’s now on scholarship and drives a mop in the cafeteria to help with her expenses.

One day, Asher wrote a list of qualities she was seeking in a boyfriend. I think there are probably a lot of people who have written or at least come up with a list that they are looking for when it comes to a significant other. That’s not the problem. The problem is that Dane found it. Asher’s been expecting Dane to take the piss about it for days now, so when he walks up to her and tells her that he will help her to find a boyfriend if it will get her out of their pod now and again, she’s surprised and doesn’t quite trust him. But when she sees the name that Dane wrote down, she’s more than willing to try, and tells him that she will stay out of the rooms until graduation if he can help her get that guy.

Huntingdon Dane III has no emotions. At least, he doesn’t confess to any. His father has taught him that emotions are a weakness and that they should be excised because weakness is evil. The one thing that Dane wants the most is for his father to respect and be proud of him. Dane will do just about anything he can to turn himself into his father. So when Cinder Girl is part of his dorm pod, he knows that he has to do what he can to excise the weakness he feels around her. Getting her to leave the rooms often and to have a boyfriend will do that. So, he invites her to a party where he knows that the guy she wants to date is going to be at. It’s a weekend party at a cabin at a lake, and he knows that Barclay will want Asher because she’s with him.

The one thing that Hunt Dane does love to do is to stir the pot and play games. He’s going to play truth and dare and make things happen. His group takes truth and dare seriously. So, while it’s a game, it’s a very serious game.

I was surprised by how mature the young people in this book are. They are pretty wise, considering how young they are. And they behave better than some of the so-called adults in this. All the characters are enjoyable, and there are set-ups for the next books. All in all, I really enjoyed reading this one, and will likely read more of the series as it comes out.

beautiful-calm-clouds-206359

Dane is definitely a good game player. He outplayed his dad. He’ll definitely be a force to be reckoned with when he gets older, especially since he’ll have Asher there on his side, and she will cut a bitch. I definitely wouldn’t want to get on her bad side at all.

OK, that’s all I have to say on this one. Go check it out! Happy reading!

Jade Cary-First a Lady

Jade is another first-timer to the blog. One of the things I love about blogging, outside of getting to read all the books, is getting to read authors that I wouldn’t otherwise have read. I’ve picked up several authors that are now on my must-read list because of that. But, enough of that, let’s talk about Jade Cary’s book, First a Lady.

The story goes thusly. Lady Grace Aston was the daughter of a duke. Her mother was American, so she spent a lot of time in the US. While in the US, she met Matt Coolidge, fell in love, and married him. Then, the politicking started. First Matt went into Congress, then he became POTUS. He was a 3rd party president, a Libertarian, the person that no one expected to be president, but there he was. He had a good 1st term, and was running for his second term. On a campaign stop in New Orleans, after having just been introduced by a speech given by Grace, he is killed by two men who were in his Secret Service detail. John Marin, who was also part of the detail, saw what was going to happen milliseconds before it happened, and he tackled Grace while the shooting was happening, and then grabbed her and carried her away from the building, into a limo, and drove her away from the scene. He was, of course, keeping her safe. But he had to be questioned to make sure that he wasn’t in on it.

Fast forward a year, and Grace is living in London. She has turned down the Secret Service’s protection, which I totally would too. But, she’s about to participate in an event at the US Embassy in London and then fly to the US for a memorial service for her husband. The current president has decided to force her hand and told her that she has to have protection. She said fine, she would get her own security. That’s when she turned in John Marin.

For his part, John has spent the last year hip-deep in a bottle of rum on a boat in the Caribean. When Grace’s private secretary called to ask him if he would protect Grace, he turned the man down. But when Grace showed up on the pier outside his boat, it was harder to turn her down, so he didn’t. But he told her that she would have to do whatever he told her to and that she wasn’t to keep anything from him. Of course, if it were that easy, we wouldn’t have a book, now would we?

So, I love John and Grace together. They very much drive each other crazy, both in a sexual way and in a purely frustrated way. I think that’s awesome. They are both strong, stubborn people who butt heads like a pair of rams looking at a pretty ewe. Overall, I do  like the book. However, it danced a fine line with some conspiracy theories going on and nearly crossed over, at least for my liking. But, it didn’t mess with my enjoyment of the book, so it’s all good.

the-white-house-north-lawn-plus-fountain-and-flowers-credit-stephen-melkisethian_flickr-user-stephenmelkisethian

I’m really not going to put anything down here, except for this. I don’t know that I would be worried about the conspiracies going on in this one if the US political scene wasn’t what it is now. I don’t have to have total escapism when I read a book, but that’s my thought on the matter. If I read this 2 years ago? I don’t know if the line would be where it is currently, but it isn’t, so I can’t tell you for sure. Anyway, I liked the book and had a hard time putting it down, one way or the other, so I guess it wasn’t that much of a problem.

That’s all I have to say about this one. Go on over to the Almighty Zon and check it out. Remember, if you do read it and you like it, make sure to leave a review. It doesn’t have to be a long one, it can be as simple as saying that you like something, but leaving reviews helps out authors. Happy reading!
