I loved this way more than I expected to love it
Infinity Countdown Prime (2018) #1 - Gerry Duggan,Mike Deodato

Because, really, just fuck the Infinity Stones/Gems/Those Fucking Things right now.   Yeah, y'know what, I'm mad that shit got flipped on me and I'm using my favorite coping mechanism and stress relief: swearing at other things that piss me the fuck off. 

 

Anyway, yeah, this was... not at all what I expected.  I had Marvel Insider points, though, so I figured why not?   I really, really want to continue with this storyline, although I might wait for the graphic novel to come out.  I'll have enough to catch up while I do that, to be honest.

Kill Your Darlings (Yellow team)
Countdown City - Ben H. Winters

 

77 days left til the end of the world as we know it and he feels fine.

LOL  Couldn't resist.

 

An old baby sitter from his childhood wants him to track down her missing husband.

 

People are just up and dropping everything to do wish fulfillment stuff, but she thinks Henry can track this guy down because she thinks he's just off doing something silly and noble and he just needs to be asked to come home.  

 

He isn't even on the police force anymore.

 

Henry is way too nice for his own good.

I don't think the word no exists for him unless he's talking to his sister, and even then it's iffy.

 

 

 

Guess for Cause of Death:  shot with an arrow

Fabulous
Oh, Come On - Be Faithful (Countdown to Christmas Book 3) - Cami Checketts

Oh, Come On, Be Faithful is my first book by Cami Checketts, but won't be my last.  Ms. Checketts has delivered a well-written book.  This smooth read hosts a phenomenal cast of characters that are not only entertaining but downright lovable.  Matt is hired as a bodyguard to protect Mikayla from a stalker.  Their story is loaded with drama, humor, action, suspense and spice.  Kudos to Ms. Checketts for the humor and amazing characters.  I loved Oh, Come On, Be Faithful from cover to cover and look forward to reading more from Cami Checketts in the future.  Oh, Come On, Be Faithful is book 3 of the Countdown to Christmas Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.  

 

I voluntarily read a complimentary copy of this book that I received from Bookfunnel.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Countdown to Midnight, a holiday novella
Countdown to Midnight, a holiday novella... Countdown to Midnight, a holiday novella - Katy Regnery Once again Katy Regnery gifts readers a story they can delight in. As I sit here contemplating my review, there is a burning question that comes to mind: Series, Standalone or Introduction read? What if I said yes to all three?

As a series, this is definitely a must read for fans of the Blueberry Lane series. The story concludes our much needed HEAs for the Story sisters with insight on the connection to the Atwell family. As always, Ms. Regnery blesses the reader with both back story and current to have you connect. You walk away at the end content and happy to say goodbye to our beloved series.

As a standalone if you are fan of second chance romance, this novella gives you two stories with different backstories for a satisfying read. Elizabeth's tale theme is 'misunderstanding' whereas Jane's is 'the one that got away'. With each heroine's story, Ms. Regnery delivers both backstory to not have an unfamiliar reader feel lost, and the connection story is never rushed. Both Elizabeth and Jane are strong female leads and there counterpoints in Merit and Amity are perfect blend of alpha-y male goodness. The reader also is given just enough heat to turn it up and feel the passion. If you are looking for that quick, feel good holiday read while catching a flight, you will not be disappointed.

If a reader is looking for an introduction, this would be definitely a recommendation from me for someone unfamiliar with Katy's writing or wanting to test the waters before diving in the entire series. The novella covers a complete story without needing to have the experience of reading the others. There are no obvious spoilers (at least for this reader) that would ruin the experience of the other novels.

As followers of my reviews should know by now, I'm a very HUGE fan of Katy Regnery's stories. She writes without raking me over the angst and delivers a HEA I need. But for me, I tend to grade novellas on a harsher curve. It's difficult to deliver a complete for me, and I hate feeling abandoned if I can't continue on quickly. However, this gem ticks off ever necessary box I require. Never rushed to completion, understood the characters, some witty mixed with sweet banter - this story delivered it all. 5 out of 5 stars
