After Math - Denise Grover Swank

 
Off the Subject, Book 1

I Picked Up This Book Because: #Barbsbookopoly roll 1.

The Characters:

Scarlett Goodwin:
Tucker Price:
Tina, Caroline, Jason, Daniel

The Story:

A New Adult tale of CIA bound math wiz Scarlett and soccer star who needs help in math Tucker.

Tucker is about to lose his scholarship and along with it his dreams of going pro. Scarlett is determined not to be like her mom and sister and let a man ruin her life. When Tucker comes to Scarlett for math tutoring, sparks fly. They fight it for a long time but they just can’t resist. They have a hard time opening up to each other, letting each other in on their tragic pasts and it causes a big rift in the relationship.

Overall this is a love story and a pretty good one. It’s not mind blowing or anything but it’s a pleasant way to spend a few hours entertained.

The Curse Keepers
The Curse Keepers - Denise Grover Swank

The Curse Keepers was a bit of a let down for me. Unfortunately, I had the entire series to work my way through, but I was optimistic it could improve.

What irked me about the story was mainly how special the two main characters were (they were literally the only ones who could stop the curse/the ending of the world). These main characters also annoyed me, as they make their way offending each other instead of getting the job done. This takes a lot of place in this book. The touches of Native American folklore were nice, since I don't know a lot about it.

What I'm hoping for in the next book is a bit more balance (more story, less will-they-won't-they).

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

LOVE THIS SERIES
Twenty-Eight and a Half Wishes (Rose Gardner Mystery #1) - Denise Grover Swank

I have read all 14 books in this series. It is one of my favorites ever. Twenty Eight and a Half Wishes was my very first Denise Grover Swank book ever, and I have loved all her works since.

Talk to each other
The Curse Breakers - Denise Grover Swank

Dear Ellie and Collin, 

 

Sit your asses down and talk, do not threaten each other, try to debate the issues and come to some form of agreement about what's going on.

 

Collin, you're being an ass, listen to her.

 

Ellie, resolve your issues with Collin instead of playing around with David, it's unfair to everybody in the situation.

 

Reverse google images does not seem to be a strong thing in this world.  Googling things might help, also stopping being martyrs for the cause is a good thing.

 

I'm curious to see what's going to happen here and how things are going to be resolved.

Twenty-Eight and a Half Wishes by Denise Grover Swank $1.99
Twenty-Eight and a Half Wishes (A Rose Gardner Mystery) - Denise Grover Swank

For Rose Gardner, working at the DMV on a Friday afternoon is bad even before she sees a vision of herself dead. She’s had plenty of visions, usually boring ones like someone’s toilet’s overflowed, but she’s never seen one of herself before. When her overbearing momma winds up murdered on her sofa instead, two things are certain: There isn't enough hydrogen peroxide in the state of Arkansas to get that stain out, and Rose is the prime suspect.

Rose realizes she’s wasted twenty-four years of living and makes a list on the back of a Wal-Mart receipt: twenty-eight things she wants to accomplish before her vision comes true. She’s well on her way with the help of her next door neighbor Joe, who has no trouble teaching Rose the rules of drinking, but won’t help with number fifteen-- do more with a man. Joe’s new to town, but it doesn’t take a vision for Rose to realize he’s got plenty secrets of his own. 

Somebody thinks Rose has something they want and they’ll do anything to get it. Her house is broken into, someone else she knows is murdered, and suddenly, dying a virgin in the Fenton County jail isn’t her biggest worry after all.
