Book Blitz: Jake’s Redemption by Jamie Schulz with Giveaway

Jake’s Redemption
Jamie Schulz
(The Angel Eyes Series Prequel)
Publication date: February 1st 2019
Genres: Adult, Romance, Science Fiction

In a broken world, he faced a future full of pain.

Will one daring woman be his last chance for love… Before time runs out…

Jake longs for the life men lived before war destroyed everything and women enslaved them. When fate forces a temporary reprieve from imprisonment, escape becomes his primary objective. Until his new captor sparks hope, and something far more passionate, in his lonely heart.

After giving up on romance, Monica dedicated herself to sheltering unfortunate souls from a harsh new society. But then destiny delivered a desperate man to her doorstep. A man she soon discovers she cannot ignore and would do anything to save.

Will Monica be able to free Jake from the vicious woman who wants to break him? Or will Jake be forced to leave Monica behind to save himself?

 
EXCERPT
 
“Welcome to our home,” she said in a friendly voice.
 
He flicked another glance in her direction, but only nodded in reply. He was so wound up with dread and anxiety from the drug, he could barely communicate; yet he was not so unnerved or disorientated that he didn’t notice her breathtaking beauty.
 
He couldn’t work any moisture into his mouth. His throat was too tight and his shaking so bad, he knew he would stutter unintelligibly if he tried to utter a single word.
 
“Are you cold?” the woman asked.
 
He shook his head, still unable to speak.
 
“What’s your name?”
 
He looked up again and then back at the ground. He opened his mouth, but nothing came out.
 
Coughing, he tried again.
 
“J-Jake…Ni-Nichols.”
 
“Jake. I like that.”
 
Something in her tone, or maybe it was just his fear of being close to another woman with power over him, sent an icy shiver of dread down Jake’s spine.
 
“So, you’re not cold,” the woman said, “but you’re trembling like it’s twenty below. Did they give you the drug before you left?”
 
He nodded again.
 
She rested a hand on his arm and looked up into his face. He wanted to pull away, but something in her eyes held him immobile.
 
“You won’t have to suffer that again for as long as you’re here…”

Very little raptors, hated the art and storyline
Jurassic Park: Redemption #1 - Bob Schreck,Nate Dyke,Tom Yeates,Frank Miller

I found almost nothing redeemable about this, so I'm glad I didn't pay for it and don't own it.   Another Comixology Unlimited borrow, many of which I've returned after a couple pages.   I only kept with this, because I was hoping for more raptors, or for the storyline if not the art to get better. 

 

None of it happened.   None.   It's very unlikely I'll invest more time in this mini-series.

rising from the ashes
Riding Towards Shadows - Nellie Merthe Erkenbach

Riding Towards Shadows really impressed me more than most books I've read in recent months.

A self-discovery novel that exudes strength and vulnerability at the same time, is personal and also help (almost instructions) for women in a similar situation. Nellie Merthe Erkenbach takes us on her journey through the pain of loss, a journey into her past, which she undertakes to heal in the present.

The Glasgow of the 1990s is an unknown world but opens up through Erkenbach’s vivid descriptions and flashbacks.

Riding Towards Shadows is a "road movie" and that's why the vehicle plays a special role; her motorcycle, a Harley-Davidson Sportster, is almost mythical, a symbol of masculinity that helps this woman to emancipate from male stereotypes. The actual journey thus becomes an inner development, a maturing process.

Because these are real people, some characters remain a little unclear but this gives the story a certain kick.

Riding Towards Shadows is suffering from love lost and growing through dealing with the pain, it is not a humorous book but one that stays with the reader for a long time after the last page is turned.

REVIEW BY MERISSA - Scion's Redemption (Seven Seals #4) by Traci Douglass
Scion's Redemption (Seven Seals #4) - Traci Douglass

Scion's Redemption is the fourth book in the Seven Seals series, and this time we focus on Luther, and his Seal, Thana.

Luther is completely against having a relationship with his Seal, even though he knows others have. He wishes them well, but he doesn't want that for himself. However, this latest incarnation of the Seal is giving him trouble. Keeping a distance is no longer as easy as it once was. Thana is intrigued by Luther, even more so when she has to face up to what he is. She is drawn into a world far beyond her understanding, and yet manages to find her feet.

This was a wonderful addition to the series, and in my opinion, better than book 3. I don't know if this book was longer than the others, but the pacing was perfect, building up to the climax with ease. We get cameo appearances from the other Scions, and find out more about what is happening, or has happened!

I am loving this series, and am looking forward to the next book. Absolutely recommended by me.

* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and my comments here are my honest opinion. *
