Nothing to Fear by Juno Rushdan
Nothing to Fear (Final Hour Book 2) - Juno Rushdan

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.


Someone in his unit, someone they trusted with their lives, had murdered a suspect in custody— here in the ultrasecure facility right under their noses.


The Gray Box is a so deep undercover organization in the US government that even people in the know don't know about it, and they have a mole. The first in the series, Every Last Breath, introduced us to the Gray Box and the men and women working to keep America safe. The idea of a possibility of a mole is talked about there and by the end confirmed, Nothing to Fear is the story of Gideon, known as Reaper, going rogue to protect one of their programmers and hackers, Willow, from being set-up by the mole. You could start the series here but you'd miss out on the foundation of character relationships and the author does such a great job of constructing the plot that I think it is worth it to read the series in order.


When he looked at her, he didn’t see a target or a mission. Only an exquisite woman, tender and sweet, ready to open herself. She was giving him the precious gift of her trust— a miracle and a mistake inextricably tangled.


Nothing to Fear was just about a non-stop action ride that I highly enjoyed. As this is romantic suspense, I do think the romance could have been a bit stronger but if you enjoy action and a strong plot, this is a must read. For me, not completely feeling Gideon's character contributed to the romance not feeling as strong. He's infused with more emotional bearing than the typical alpha males in this sub-genre but the slower reveal of his background kept me from knowing him. At the end there was also a bit too much, “I'm not good enough for her/I'm too damaged” that starts to feel angst for angst sake after reading the majority of the story where the couple has already fallen in love. Our heroine Willow felt more like a complete character and her always feeling like an outcast because of being on the spectrum will tug at some hearts.


The power she had, to have him unraveling with a look.


This is the second book I've read by this author and while I've enjoyed the lead romances, I think where this author really shines is her ability to construct these twisty turn-y, high action plots carried out by main characters you want to fall in love and secondary characters you become wildly impatient to read their books. The concept of a super secret government group isn't new to the romantic suspense world but I do feel this author is top notch at pulling it off. The ending conclusion and wrap-up on some of the mole plot was a little rushed (the main baddie had a background that I would have actually liked explored more) but for the vast majority I was locked into the action and flew through this book.


If you like romantic suspense, I highly recommend this series. The romance does take a backseat at times but you'll find yourself invested in all the characters and the engaging plots. I can't wait for the next in the series.

The first half of this has been superb romantic suspense, been on the edge of my seat a couple times.

Mockingjay (The Final Book of The Hunger Games) - Suzanne Collins

The 3rd and last instalment to the series sees Katniss in District 13. She is the 'Mockingjay' a symbol of the rebellion against the Capital. A group of rebel soldiers including Gale and a severely traumatised Peeta are with Katniss for a PR promo when they get pulled into the Capital and a new 'arena'.
A very fast read that I enjoyed a lot but left me thinking that Katniss is a deeply unlikeable person on so many levels. I got a little fed up of her always wanting to be the martyr, imagining that everything happened because of her or her actions, completely forgetting that people have their own agency.
That being said I still enjoyed this a lot but less so than the other books.

Favourite 10 books of 2017
The Hate U Give - Angie Thomas
Daughter of Smoke and Bone (Daughter of Smoke and Bone Trilogy) by Taylor, Laini (2012) Paperback - Laini Taylor

Out of the 82 books I read (hopefully 83 if I manage to finish Outlander before the end of the year), those were my favourites (well, I took all my 5 stars read of 2017 and chose 10 out of those, it's not really a scientific rating):


1. The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas: because this book was EVERYTHING. You need to read it if you haven't yet.


2. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor: and the whole trilogy. I totally enjoyed this unique universe with those amazing characters, a must read!


3. Traitor to the Throne by Alwyn Hamilton: just WOW! This series is just so important for me, I love this world.


4. Phobos4 by Victor Dixen: this is the last book in my favourite series of 2016. This conclusion was epic.


5. The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson: I just can't understand how I had never read Sanderson before this year. He is such an amazing author and I can't wait to discover more of his work.


6. A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J Maas: well, this series is one of my favourite of all time and this book did not disappoint.


7. The Crown's Game by Evelyn Skye: I love this series full of Russian magic. I fell in love with the author's universe.


8. Warcross by Marie Lu: because, Marie Lu + video game = perfection.


9. The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli: a beautiful book with a strong message. This book made me open my eyes.


10. Wild by Cheryl Strayed: I think it is the first time ever a non-fiction book is on my top 10. But this was such a great experience, I had to include it.


What were some of your favourite books this year?


Thanks for reading,
