Flashback Friday: Beg for Mercy (Dead Wrong #1) by Jami Alden

Flashback Friday: Beg for Mercy (Dead Wrong #1) by Jami Alden

Karla’s Review 5 Stars! Excellent romantic suspense/thriller! This had everything I love in this genre of book. A twisted villain committing gruesome murders, nail-biting suspense, an intense romance, and great secondary characters. Nothing sugar-coated here, pretty graphic descriptions of the deeds and the aftermath of the crime. Although the killer was easy to spot, it did not take away from the story. There was still that desperation to solve the murders, and the hopelessness of the situation if it was left unresolved. What I really loved about this book is that although it wrapped up nicely, the circumstances of the crimes had far reaching effects on other characters and some issues […]

Review: Split by JB Salsbury

Review: Split by JB Salsbury

Crista’s Review 5 Stars!! ***Spoiler-Free Review*** This is definitely a book that should NOT be spoiled.  In some ways I am completely uncertain how to review this book without spoiling anything, so I guess I will be vague and brief. I absolutely adored this book! This is a book that I stayed up ’til the wee hours of the night to finish.  I seem to remember books that I loose sleep over (and don’t regret it), and this was certainly one of those. Shyann is coming home after being gone for five years.  She is estranged from her father and is going to home to rebuild her bank account and pick […]

Review: Devil and the Deep (Deep Six, #2) by Julie Ann Walker

Review: Devil and the Deep (Deep Six, #2) by Julie Ann Walker

Crista’s Review 3 Stars! The Devil and the Deep is the second book in Julie Ann Walker’s Deep Six series which features Navy SEAL heroes.  I didn’t realize this until I was already into the book.  Although it probably would’ve been helpful to have read the first book first, (as that is where Maddy and Bran are first introduced), I was still able to follow along pretty well. What is it about Navy SEAL heroes that get to me every single time???  I was in the mood for a good romantic suspense and Julie Ann Walker is a go-to author for me in this genre.   I thought that this book was […]

Review Rewind: Run from Fear (Dead Wrong #3) by Jami Alden

Review Rewind: Run from Fear (Dead Wrong #3) by Jami Alden

Steffi’s Review 3.5 Stars! Run from Fear is the third and last book in Jami Alden’s very successful romantic suspense trilogy. Beg for Mercy totally blew me away and made me a huge fan of Jami’s writing. We first meet Talia in Beg for Mercy when she withholds crucial information to protect herself and her little sister, Rosario. Maybe she didn’t always make the right decisions but they were understandable. Jack Brooks was the man who cottoned on to her secret and promised to always protect her and Rosie if she’d come forward. Two years later, Run from Fear tells Talia and Jack’s story. Talia has built a new life for herself […]
