Five, Six, Grab Your Crucifix by Willow Rose

— feeling bloody
Five, Six ... Grab your crucifix - Willow Rose

Another great read!!
To be honest, when I started this one, I wasn't sure I was going to like it. I am not a fan of demonic possessions and religious things along that nature, so I wasn't falling into the story at first. 
Then the story changed. So did my interest.
After that, I was reading a thrilling and scary story! I was rapt!
The thing is, something like this could actually happen. Maybe even has happened before in some weird way. I do remember a former Russian spy having the same fate once....
Anyway, read this series! Rebekka Frank is a take-no-nonsense character that you will really enjoy!
I do wish there was more focus on the cult aspect to it all though. My only gripe, I guess, other than the slow beginning.

If You Tell by Gregg Olsen

This feels like a hard review to write.
This is someone's real life events. This is their life growing up and beyond. This is one harrowing story that is so real it's terrifying.
As a mother, I cannot fathom Shelley and her antics. She obviously is mentally ill, maybe schizophrenic, not that I'm making excuses for her. Still, how could she do any of these things to her children?!
I immediately thought of Mommie Dearest.
Except this was real, and maybe even more sadistic with friends and family being murdered. It's almost surreal.
I'm literally scared for when this woman gets out of prison in a couple years. If her and her husband hook back up, people are screwed. He's so weak, he'd probably go right back to her.
I really hope the author keeps up with the sisters and keeps us all posted as to what happens in a few years. My money is on Nikki, Sami and Tori, but still my mind will be abuzz with wonder.
A tragic, intense but great read. One I highly recommend to true crime fans.

“Maybe it’s just pregnancy hormones but I really want to lick him.”
I've ended up in a huge mess... my ex-boyfriend Jimbo wasn’t the dark soul with a heart of gold I thought he was. He knocked me up and then knocked me about. And when he tells me that I can’t keep the baby, it’s time to get out of Seattle.

A fainting episode in a gas station in the Arizona desert leads me to Lawson. A real life cowboy who runs his own ranch, Lawson is easy on the eyes. Muscles... everywhere. Huge package. Those little diagonal indentations that make a big arrow straight to his... toolbox.

But I'm not safe... it seems that Jimbo is still looking for me. Is Lawson the one who can protect me? And more importantly, can he convince me that he’s the man to tie me down?

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

Eleanor & Park - Rainbow Rowell
OMG!
Way to leave a girl hanging!
I totally need more of Eleanor and Park. I can't just sit here wondering what those three words were. I know what I want them to be but...
Oh how I love this story. I flew through it too, it was just a story you couldn't get enough of if you tried.
Talented writing here! I will definitely be reading more from this author, and hopefully more about these two lovebirds. My heart just can't take it if I never know what happens between them.
Seriously, I'm invested.
You would be too if you read it, provided you haven't already. This is popular read.

Bad boy photographer Wyatt Royce’s career is on the verge of exploding. His sexy, controversial show has everyone buzzing. All he needs is one perfect model to be his centerpiece.

 

Then Kelsey Draper walks in. Stunning. Vibrant. And far too fragile for a project like this. Wyatt should know—after all, he remembers only too well how their relationship ended all those years ago. 

 

Desperate for cash and to lose her good girl persona, Kelsey sets her sights on Wyatt’s show. But only the show. She knows all too well that Wyatt Royce is a danger to her heart.

 

Wyatt agrees to give her the show on one condition. He has complete control of his muse—on camera and in his bed. As business and pleasure blur, Kelsey can’t help but wonder if she’s in too deep. Could a good girl like her ever be enough for a man like Wyatt?

After a brief marriage to an unfaithful, gold-digging wife, Jared Roderick is looking for the perfect good girl, and he thinks he’s found her. Sweet, quiet, prim Stephanie Clarke is exactly the woman he wants and nothing like his cheating ex. Now to convince a reluctant Steph they were meant to be together.

Steph has had enough of men controlling her life from her preacher father to her abusive boyfriend. She wants to regain the innocence she lost and ignore the ugliness of her recent past. She’s not the pure and sheltered virgin Jared desires and fends off his advances despite the sizzling chemistry between them.

Jared is as determined to win Steph over as he is to win hockey games; but when he discovers his fantasy is tarnished, does he have the strength to skate the distance?

"The Assist practically bleeds emotion. Jenshak puts her heart in this coming of age story." (Isha C, Goodreads reviewer)



Blair:
What's the probability of insulting the one guy on campus I need to help me pass statistics? If I knew, I wouldn't be standing in front of Wes Reynolds begging him to tutor me.

Basketball player, sexy, arrogant, always sleeping through class... these are the things I knew about him. What I didn't know is that he is a seriously smart jock.

Wes:
What's the best way to get rid of the peppy and unrelenting girl that keeps asking me to tutor her? If I knew, I wouldn't be staring at her tan legs and attempting to teach her statistics.

Sorority girl, fine as f**k, determined, ball buster... these are the things I knew about her. What I didn't know is that she is all the things I didn't realize I wanted or needed.

Or that one semester with her would change everything.

The twisted and intriguing storytelling that you loved in Consequences and Infidelity is coming back at you with an all-new alpha anti-hero in the dark romance series Web of Sin, by New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig.

I’m Sterling Sparrow. You’ve no doubt heard my name or read it on the top of tall buildings. There’s more to my business—my realm—than what is seen aboveground.

Within the underbelly of one of America’s largest cities lives a world where a man’s word is either his most valuable tool or his most respected weapon. When my father ruled that world and that city, he promised me someone who would one day make my reign complete.

Since that day, long ago, Araneae McCrie has been mine.

She just didn’t know.

My father is now gone.

The city and the underbelly are now mine.

The time has come for me to collect who was promised to me, to shred her life of secrets and make her who she’s always been—mine.

Have you been Aleatha’d?

*SECRETS is book one of the Web of Sin trilogy and book one of the Sparrow Webs. Sterling and Araneae's story continues in LIES and concludes in PROMISES.

She had her future all planned...until she met him.

 

Struggling to live up to the high expectations of overprotective parents and a hefty family name, Caryn Stevens only wants one summer of fun before she focuses on finishing her college degree. She knows her destiny—to lead her dad’s multi-million dollar business. But that plan changes forever the day she runs into—literally—sexy and single professional hockey player, Andrew Chadwick.

 

Sparks instantly fly between the two, and Caryn can’t resist his charms as she discovers that Andrew has a reputation of winning – both on and off the ice. One of the most eligible singles in Toronto, Andrew could have any woman he wants, and he’s got Caryn in his sights. But, when Caryn’s parents disapprove of the match and threaten to disinherit her and his hockey team trades him to a new city, it may take more than love for the couple to survive this penalty play.

 

**This Piece of My Heart is the first book in the Clearing the Ice trilogy. Book 2, This Piece of My Soul, is out now! The trilogy is complete and concludes with This Piece of Our Being, also available now!**

Carl Wilkins, a successful man with a thriving business, loses everything and has to start over from scratch. His dogged determination quickly deteriorates when he finds that even his reputation is gone. With barely enough money to buy a cheap bottle of booze, and no prospects for employment, things look bleak until he receives an unusual job offer from a stranger who turns up just as Carl hits rock bottom. The perilous space salvage job is more than just a chance to rebuild his broken life. It is also a chance to strike back at SACOM, the people who ruined him. Carl, the best space salvage operator in the star system, bets his life that he can complete the job. Setting out in the Phoenix, a specially modified space freighter, Carl begins a dangerous mission to find and collect missing cargo pods from the dense asteroid belt. Struggling to remain alive in the belt while avoiding detection by SACOM ships, Carl learns that he may have as much to fear from the people who hired him as he does from SACOM. His chance to rebuild his life turns into a desperate race across the galaxy in hopes of finding a safe haven where no one will ever find him.

Delve into six stories from the paranormal realm…

 

In story one, Mark buys a house for half the market value. He’s thrilled with the deal, but he has no idea he’s about to discover the full cost. As they say, “Let the buyer beware.”

 

In story two, Eric obsesses over discovering the meaning of life. Given how thick-headed and self-absorbed he is, it will take someone else to spell it out for him in big, bold letters.

 

In story three, Carly has just about given up on life, but she’ll learn Fate isn’t finished with her, and is shuffling the cards to deal her new hand.

 

In story four, Arthur teeters between two places at once. Reality has split his existence into two parallel realities, and he doesn’t even know it. Unfortunately, life will only offer one solution to his problem.

 

In story five, Senja and Petre make the scientific discovery of a lifetime—a planet teeming with life. Among the ruins of a lost civilization, a new discovery will make them rethink everything they know about their own history.

 

In story six, Samantha works hard and makes just enough money to get by with little to spare. When her company has a big celebration and she needs to buy a gift for her boss, she’ll get a taste of buyer’s remorse when she ignores her instincts and buys a gift from a strange little shop that hadn’t been there only yesterday.

 

What you can’t see can hurt you.

Dark Ambition by Ann Brocklehurst

— feeling angry
Being from Hamilton, and still living here today, I was one of the many that followed this horrific story as it happened. When my co-worker offered to let me read her copy, I jumped at the chance.
I'm so glad I did too.
You think you know a story, especially when it plays out in your hometown and local news. Then you read a thrilling journalistic approach to what happened and you realize how little you actually knew.
Man, these two are sick. Smitch probably more so than Millard. Still, they got life and they deserved it.
While reading the book I had a few creepy moments. I can't tell you how many times I may have crossed paths with these guys. From the restaurant that they met at, a favorite of mine in Toronto, to where they lived, also among my stomping grounds. It got a little spooky, not gonna lie.  Even the victim, lives near my in-laws. Going past certain places, like Trinity Church Rd, it gets to me every time.... Will I ever forget someone was murdered near there? Probably not.
If you know nothing about this story, and like true crime, read it. It's a good one. It just hits so close to home for me.
