"Burn Rate", by Ty Patterson
Burn Rate (Zeb Carter #3) - Ty Patterson
Book # 3, in the Zeb Carter series

By weaving an exciting scenario along with his familiar characters, Mr. Patterson knows how to entertain us. “Burn Rate” is a suspenseful story created by an author with a fertile imagination. Zeb Carter and his warriors are on the trail of a terrorist who plans to kill all leaders at the G20 Summit. Leads bring them to Iran and the head of the security force is their target.

This thriller is fast and furious we have not time to catch our breath. It is action packed and very intriguing and suspenseful. We have situations in this story that are quite believable and some maybe farfetched but captivating to read. Zeb and his team do their notorious deeds and escaped unscathed …. Awe and this interesting story filled with clever twists and turns bring us to a dynamic ending…..The team did it again….outsmart the terrorists and the gang behind them….

Once again Ty Patterson wrote a white knuckle thriller that flows well and is played out by smart characters. We have incredible descriptions and amazing details everything is so vividly written you may forget this is a fiction. Well-done.

Hidden Legacy series
Burn for Me - Ilona Andrews
White Hot - Ilona Andrews
Wildfire - Ilona Andrews
Diamond Fire - Ilona Andrews

 

March 2019 Re-Read

When life is getting me down, I turn to Ilona Andrews. Particularly the Hidden Legacy series. There’s some strange alchemy in this series which just makes me feel better. The closeness of the Baylor family when I’m missing my family dreadfully. Nevada’s dedication to her company when my work situation is feeling less than ideal. The relationship between Nevada and Rogan when I haven’t seen my guy for longer than usual. Sometimes I’m stunned at how much I enjoy the extreme violence in the books, but that also seems to be a peaceful way for me to purge my own desire to punch people.

I love this fantasy world—the magic, the Houses, the dialog, Nevada’s internal commentary, the Baylor family, all of it. I’m so glad that the Andrews decided to continue on with a Catalina series, which I am awaiting impatiently.

So yes, I’m avoiding life right now and re-reading old favourites. I’m not sure when this tendency will end, but I’m enjoying my vacation from reality.

Snakes and Ladders: moves 7 to 9
Burn for Me - Ilona Andrews
White Hot - Ilona Andrews
Wildfire - Ilona Andrews

 

When last you heard from me, I was on square 17, not having a horror  book to read.  It was a cold weekend--hopefully the last really cold one, but time will tell--and I had a crappy week at work.  What do I do when life gets rough?  I re-read Ilona Andrews, that's what.

 

So, I read Burn for Me and get to shake one die : result was 4.  which takes me to square 21 (a book set in Europe).  Nope, I headed on with White Hot, set in Texas.  Another shake of one die:  result was 5.  Takes me to square 26, Part of a series that is more than 5 books lone.  Once again, I chose Wildfire, which will become part of a 5 book series this year, but its not there yet!  So, one more shake of one die: 4.  Now I'm on square 30, a book where someone travels by train.  

 

Not sure what my next book will be actually--I'm not in a reading slump, but really feeling down in the dumps.  This despite a wonderful book club meeting on Friday evening.

 

I'm sure I'll shake it off soon, but I can hardly wait until I feel more upbeat.

Let Me Burn (Angel Sands) by Carrie Elks
Let Me Burn - Carrie Elks

 

 

He needs a soft place to land. She's happy to take the brunt of the fall. Carrie Elks has been a favorite of mine since I stumbled upon Summer's Lease. Her stories are emotionally compelling, her characters are easy to relate to and her heart shines through with every page. Let Me Burn tugs at the heart. Ember and Lucas are two lost souls searching for a place to call home. The passion is real, the emotions are raw and the beauty runs deep.

Review: "Shades" by Jaime Reese
Shades - Jaime Reese

It took me FOREVER to finish this book. With 344 pages, it was at least 150 pages too long. It was a struggle to finish.

 

The story was 30% plot and 70% internal monologues (pining ones in the first, schmaltzy love declarations ones in the second half).

 

 

This book also had some of the most far-fetched and ridiculous plot twists that I’ve read in a long time.

 

For example, that island? The hell? Am I supposed to take this seriously?

 

 

This was my first book by this author and even though I’m not totally put off by her storytelling, I probably won’t read another book from her in the foreseeable future.

 

I’m giving this book a really weak 3 stars-rating, because even though I wasn’t really enjoying it, the writing wasn’t that awful or offensive to justify a lower rating. But this author is in serious need to improve her storytelling.

 

 

 

~ 3 stars ~
