Heroine dropping some truth bombs
The Hellion Bride - Catherine Coulter
“I love you, Sophie Sherbrooke . I never thought such a thing existed, but evidently it does. I love you and I will love you until I cock up my toes and pass to the hereafter and I will still love you even as I float about in eternity. And I will continue to force you to pleasure until you accept my love and take me into your heart as well as into your body.” 

I really liked the first half of this, the leads snapped, sparked, and challenged each other. The heroine had numerous great quotes about the crap women have to deal with and calling out the injustices. The second half went downhill for me. There were some forced and feeling pointless plot points but the biggest disappointment was the lack of romance I felt between the two.

The heroine has well deserved trust issues with men and needed time to learn to trust Ryder, heal, and become confident and comfortable with not only her own sexuality but being intimate with Ryder. The above quote is moving and all but the last sentence is the problem I had with the whole second half. Ryder decides and forces Sophie to sexually accept him on his timetable and what he thinks is best for her. No, dude. The sex scenes were awful, a book club would need more than one meeting to discuss the consent and emotional issues. 

I ended up not believing in their romance, the murder-mystery plot fizzled, and two pointless zombie lusting characters make a pointless appearance. 
Enjoyed the first half and was disappointed in the second. Rounded up because of the heroine and her truth bombs she liked to drop.

 He grinned at that. “Who was it who told me you were a regular hellion?”
“Some miserable man, I doubt not. Hellion —what nonsense! None of you can bear the thought of a woman making decisions for herself, being responsible for herself. You must always rule and order things to your own satisfaction, and you dare to call it protecting her.”


Starting to really like this heroine!

Emile gave him an unholy grin, “It’s not even noon, Ryder. I had thought to ask you to visit the still-house with me.”
“Kill me first, for it’s as close to Hades as men have managed to get whilst still flesh of this world.”


The flair and frequency with which this hero bitches about the hot weather would have us being best friends.

“Now you draw blood,” he said, “and you don’t do it too badly. But not all that well either .”

“Really , Mr. Sherbrooke, it’s never wise to bait your hook when you don’t know what you’ll catch.”

Liking the cold, sassy, willful battle between hero and heroine so far.

Enigma (An FBI Thriller) - Catherine Coulter

Yes it's true. This was my first book by Catherine Coulter alone. I heard that she was a good author and now I know. I was really psyched to receive this book and it did not disappoint at all!

I sped through this gripping thriller that has two major plots and lots and lots of twists. One of those twists was jaw dropping for me. I did not see it coming.

I stayed up WAY until the morning hours as I could not put this book down. And, it was worth it! 
Excellent read for me.

Thanks to Gallery, Threshold, Pocket Books and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
