In Too Deep - Lori Foster

Sort of wonder how this landed in the Blaze/Temptations line - one whole sex scene and it was eh.

 

I was wondering in the beginning if this was going to be a hate read, but not quite. More of an irritated and/or bored read. The H spent entirely too much of the first chapter or two thinking uncharitable thoughts about the h, from her apparent lack of a bosom to her unwillingness to let a total stranger tell her what to do. Made it a little hard to believe that he got turned on by her in any fashion more than the "haven't had sex in months" sort of way. But we're supposed to believe that he fell in love with her in spite of her lack of decorum or figure (or unwillingness to let a total stranger who managed to get her kidnapped in the first place with his misplaced chivalry - he managed to draw the attention of the bad guys to the fact that she was a girl).

 

So this was more of a yeah right whatever sort of read.

Mister White: A Dark Thriller - Grey Matter Press,Anthony Rivera,John C. Foster

Mister White is an exquisite piece of horror writing. First and foremost, it is horrible. Just horrible, and I mean that in the best way. It's gory, it's spine-tingling, it's alarming, it's shocking, and the pace is fast enough to keep you reading long past your bedtime, although I'm not sure you're going to want to read it in the dark.

 

Foster's taken some risks here, combining the horror genre with a spy thriller set-up. Hard to pull off, but he manages it with aplomb.

 

There are a couple of wonderful reviews of the novel, which I'm happy to direct you to:

f horror's your bag, this is the book for you.

THE LIGHT IN THE LAKE by RON FOSTER
The Light In The Lake - Ron Foster,Cheryl Chamlies

I'm not loving the way the women are depicted in this book. It's not done overtly demeaning or anything but the small amount is pretty constant when the women are mentioned. Hey author, I'm the level-headed one in my family! It's my husband that needs a little push to get going and then he's great but I'm the one that reacts first to an emergency. And I'm positive I'm not the only one.

This book was a little too happy for me. There was mention of bad people on the other side of the lake and of people being robbed but the ending was a little unrealistic to me. I'm not saying there would be all out war but I didn't see any mention of rationing or people losing at least a little bit of weight that I would normally expect especially since there were so many people with their group. Also David only had a passing problem with people borrowing his guns - for long periods of time. So good book but not as good as the others.

BUT OUT PREPPERS ON THE MOVE! by RON FOSTER
Bug Out! Preppers on the Move!: Bug Out to Live and Eat After Emp. - Ron Hollis Foster,Cheryl Chamlies

The same complaints as the first one - the main character David is a little bit of a hot head, turning jokes out that kind of sound mean. But otherwise really good book. Some helpful hints and good books to purchase including one by this author on traps and snares. I'm not sure about all of these alternative vehicles working after an EMP but then what do I really know.

THE LONGEST WALK by RON FOSTER
The Longest Walk - Ron Foster

First off, I really like the drawings that accompany some of the descriptions of devices the author talks about. I would have been thinking, "What?!" several times throughout the book without them.

The voices are a little stilted and it seems the hero is a hair trigger from angry or frustrated, but overall I liked the book. I especially liked how he had to start from nothing because his bug-out bag was 18 miles away with his car. Why he wouldn't have brought his own car to the interview, I have no idea but at least it gave you an idea of what to look for as you're trying to get home with only your wallet & keys/purse & keys.
