Hell & High Water (THIRDS #1) by Charlie Cochet
Hell & High Water - Charlie Cochet
Hell & High Water is the first book in the THIRDS series by Charlie Cochet. It starts with Dex putting his work partner behind bars for shooting a Therian in the back in cold blood. Of course, this doesn't go down very well with others in the police force so he gets beaten up for his trouble on more than one occasion. He also gets shunted out of his job into a new one with the Therian force, called a promotion to help it go down easier. When he gets there, he realises that his new team is in trouble, and he has some big boots to fill. This is also whilst they have an ongoing investigation, plus the tensions within the team.
This book had me laughing out loud with Dex's comments and snark, whilst in the next breath, my heart was breaking for him/them/her (whichever one of the team that was being spoken about). Although Dex could be called high maintenance, his humour is his shield and he wields it with precision! He has a brain and eyes, and isn't afraid to use them - seeing connections and things that others are trying to hide. There isn't a lot of unnecessary drama with Dex, the drama that is there is usually for a reason. Sloane doesn't want a new partner, but is on his last warning. To his surprise, Dex is accepted by most of the team quicker than he would have thought possible. To his dismay, he finds that he also likes him, although he doesn't want to.
This book is excellently written, and will draw you in as you stay with Dex as he goes through everything. The pace is smooth throughout, building up to the climax that will leave you breathless. Full of emotions, whether they are 'good' or 'bad', as a reader you will experience a whole gamut of them. There were no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. Highly recommended, and I can't wait to continue with this series.

Assassin + Serial Killer = Come Hell or High Water by Britney King @britneyking_britney
Come Hell Or High Water: A Twisted Psychological Thriller: A Twisted Psychological Thriller (The Water Trilogy Book 3) - Britney King
I love the fabulously eerie cover for Come Hell or High Water, the finale for a stupendous trilogy by Britney King.
 Author: Britney King
Title: Come Hell or High Water
Series: Water Trilogy #3
Release Date: April 19, 2017



I didn’t think Kate could get any more twisted, but I was so wrong. Her desire to know drives her to do unspeakable, twisted and perverted things. Her actions constantly amaze me, and not in a good way. Where our anger and thoughts of doing something bad to someone may flit through our minds, Kate acts on hers.

This latest ‘event’ cannot end well and I don’t know what she’s thinking. She’s fooling herself. People like her can’t have friends. I’m not even sure she can have a husband and kids and I wonder how this story could possibly end with a happy ever after.

If Kate and Jude could live in a sexual frenzy, could they be happy, content with a life in suburbia? Can a serial killer ever be happy? Does killing become an end all, must have, like the air they breathe?

This trilogy has been an amazing journey into the mind of assassins and serial killers, and what motivates them to do the things they do. Sometimes I think I am a little twisted because I loved reading about Kate and Jude so much, but then I think about the author that writes it. LOL

Kate starts out calm and in control…for now, and Jude will settle for that…for now. But what happens the **** hits the fan and Jude fears that more than anything.

And their children…Do serial killers breed serial killers?

Britney King’s in depth descriptions of people, whether it’s the main characters, their petty, drunken neighbors, or the woman in the dress shop treating people like crap because she hates her petty life

We get a glimpse into their past through flashbacks, but that is no excuse for them doing the things they do.

Seeing all books need to be read to follow the story, I don’t want to spoil anything, so all I can say is Kate and Jude are seriously ****** up and I can only wonder how they haven’t managed to kill each other

I love the illustrations heading each chapter, hinting at what’s to come.

After Kate and Jude have sex, Jude’s thoughts are: I think about what we’ve just done, how we’re so broken and yet we fit just right. Then why all the problems? Why can’t Kate be happy? Content?

I started to get bored with the killing (LOL), chatting, kids…and that’s when Britney King throws in a fantastic twist. She lulls me in with a sense of complacency then slams it home.

I have been trying to figure out how Britney King will wrap up The Water Trilogy and couldn’t wrap my mind around a happy ending, but she came up with one that fit very nicely and I can rest…

This twisted, dark suspense thriller series is one you won’t want to miss!

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of Come Hell or High Water by Britney King.

Hell or High Water (The Deep Six)
Hell or High Water (The Deep Six) - Julie Ann Walker This is a new author for me and I found her writing to be really enjoyable. This is the first in a new series for her and I immediately purchased the second book. This didn't wow me, but I did find I wanted more of these characters. A full review soon.

ARC Review: Hell or High Water (Gemini #3) by Hailey Edwards
Hell or High Water (Gemini) (Volume 3) - Hailey Edwards

Review originally featured at Angel's Guilty Pleasures


Hell or High Water 

 Gemini #3  
 Hailey Edwards  
 Urban Fantasy - Paranormal Romance  
 CrushStar Multimedia LLC  
 July 30th 2016  


Gemini, Book 3 


Camille Ellis has gone rogue agent, and there’s no turning back now. The conclave might have put the Charybdis case to bed, but Cam isn’t willing to let it lie. No badge doesn’t mean no backup these days. 


As mate to an alpha warg, she has access to new and lethal resources. A whole pack full of them. And they all want justice for the sins committed against them. 

But the stakes are higher than she knows, the secrets exposed darker than she feared, and the cost of winning higher than she ever imagined. 





Hell or High Water is the third and finally book in the Gemini series, but it is not the last of the black dog world and characters.


The black dog world is awesome, entertaining, and has so much to fall in love with. I have been enjoying all the books created in this world by Ms. Edwards. I was first intraduced to the world in the Black Dog series. I don’t feel it’s necessary to read the Black Dog series; before the Gemini series, but you may be more informed if you do. The Gemini series does need to be read in order, since our plot continues from one book to another.


WOW! Cam’s journey as a self-punishing Conclave agent, exiled family member, to a rogue agent and warg mate includes several trials and hardships along the way. She really opens up her heart, makes new friends, and faces her fears in this installment. Cord, what a man. He’s an alpha warg, has a new pack to run, and a women to show that he will never leave her. He knows how to give Cam space and be protective, yet not overly; which could be harmful to her characters growth. He doesn’t smoother who Cam is or will be. Both Cam and Cord have a great balance with each other. Their strengths and vulnerabilities balance out nicely.


Fans will enjoy seeing Theirry pop in to help and the little backstory on her. We are also treated to surprises that leave you breathless. The ending wrapped up Cam’s story nicely, but also set us up for another character to get it’s own series. I’m psyched about the new series and can’t wait to read it.


Their is a lot to enjoy in this urban fantasy series.


Rated: 4 Stars

4 Stars – Wargs and Family and Fae, oh my!
Hell or High Water (Gemini) (Volume 3) - Hailey Edwards


Camille Ellis’ search for a missing friend and diabolical killer continues. She may not have a badge but she’s not alone, which causes a new sense of commitment and responsibility on Cam’s part. The changes in her life also fill a need she’s had since her twin sister drowned as a child.

Cord Graeson is now the alpha of a new warg pack with Cam as his alpha mate. Understanding warg pack structure and social behavior is a “learn as you go” process for this Fae. As always, Camille faces her fears. Her fear of water has been confronted through several murder cases. This time it’s deeper and darker than anyone expects.

“Hell or High Water" effectively concludes the Gemini series in this third book. Camille’s journey from self-punishing Conclave agent and exiled family member to rogue agent and warg mate includes poignant trials and tribulations. The overarching storyline that began with Dead in the Waterwraps up with a strong finish with the exception of the epilogue, which I wish had continued with Cam’s point-of-view.

This series is the first I’ve read by Ms. Edwards. Camille Ellis’ character and the premise of her story intrigued me. As the Gemini series is set in the same world as the author’s Black Dog series I found it easy to navigate through this world despite my ignorance. (This has not always been the case for me in reading other authors’ spin-off series.) For the most part, the other series’ characters popping in from time to time didn’t bother me or throw me out of the story. For fans of the Black Dog series, Thierry’s appearance may be satisfying. Her role makes sense given Cam’s investigation yet I felt ‘out of the loop’ even though more of Thierry’s backstory is revealed in “Hell or High Water.” This is only for a moment and near the end. Black Dog series fans please feel free to share your opinion.

Now, let’s get back to the main characters. Cord Graeson – What a man! What a warg alpha too! He’s an alpha that knows how to give a woman space. He’s protective of Cam yet he’s not toxic to her well-being. Cam can take risks! The reader knows it’s not always the hero that saves the day, which adds nail-biting variables to Cam’s perilous investigation. Yes! Yes! Yesss! Male or female – each character has a good balance of strengths and vulnerabilities. And Camille…her character development felt rewarding. All the pieces of her puzzle fit perfectly! This urban fantasy book brought tears to my eyes, which made me realize my emotional investment into her character. I look forward to more books set in this world!
