Quickie Review: Kulti by Mariana Zapata

Quickie Review: Kulti by Mariana Zapata

What it’s about “Trust me, I’ve wanted to punch you in the face a time or five.” When the man you worshipped as a kid becomes your coach, it’s supposed to be the greatest thing in the world. Keywords: supposed to. It didn’t take a week for twenty-seven-year-old Sal Casillas to wonder what she’d seen in the international soccer icon—why she’d ever had his posters on her wall, or ever envisioned marrying him and having super-playing soccer babies. Sal had long ago gotten over the worst non-break-up in the history of imaginary relationships with a man that hadn’t known she’d existed. So she isn’t prepared for this version of Reiner Kulti […]

Vanquish (Deliver #2) by Pam Godwin

Vanquish (Deliver #2) by Pam Godwin

What it’s about Her life is like a prison cell.  A self-made, to-hell-with-the-free-world existence that locks from the inside.  Stop judging. Her agoraphobia doesn’t define her. It simply keeps her safe. He belongs in a prison cell.  The 6×8, make-me-your-b*tch variety that locks from the outside.  But he’s free. To hunt. To take. To break.  And he just found a sexy new toy.  Capturing her is the easy part. Her f*cked-up mind, however, makes him question everything he does next.  But he’s a determined bastard. If all goes his way, this will hurt like hell. *** It is recommended to read after Deliver, but it can be read as a stand-alone. […]
