The Secrets of the Secret Service
Secrets of the Secret Service: The History and Uncertain Future of the U.S. Secret Service - Gary J. Byrne,Grant M. Schmidt

Very interesting look at the Secret Service and how the President's lives and wanting to be accessible to the public making them targets and how much easier it has become to kill a sitting President or a Presidential candidate. It provides a lot of history and the author used to be in the US Secret Service (USSS) and has an inside look.

Review: "Blaze" (Unbreakable Bonds, #5) by Jocelynn Drake & Rinda Elliott
Blaze - Rinda Elliott,Jocelynn Drake

For the first time in this series I had some minor issues regarding the story.

 

For example, I HATE it when a character doesn’t want any children and explicitly says so, and yet his partner tries to convince him otherwise. Some people/couples just really, truly don’t want any children and like it that way, authors.

 

 

I also wasn’t very enthusiastic about that storyline with Lucas’ sister Nicole. I found his strong reaction towards her a little weird and also out of character. I didn’t get why he still held such a huge grudge against her after all these years for something she said to him when she was 14 (!) years old and basically still a child.

 

But this is just small stuff. Because when this series shines, it shines. And it never shines brighter than when (any) two characters have a heart to heart (Lucas and Snow!). Those are the moments that make this series.

 

Oh, and that wedding of course. That was everything one could wish for.

Review: "Unbreakable Stories: Lucas" (Unbreakable Bonds, #1.5) by Jocelynn Drake & Rinda Elliott
Unbreakable Stories: Lucas - Rinda Elliott,Jocelynn Drake

A much appreciated follow-up collection, which turns the HFN from the first book “Shiver” into a solid HEA during the course of 6 short stories.

 

This series is quickly becoming a favourite of mine, and I’m giddy with pleasure that I’m only at the beginning and that there are many more books left for me to read.

Review: "Shiver" (Unbreakable Bonds, #1) by Jocelynn Drake & Rinda Elliott
Shiver - Rinda Elliott,Jocelynn Drake

I absolutely loved, loved, LOVED this book and each and every character!

 

While the main romance between Lucas and Andrei alone made me melt into a puddle of goo, it was the friendship/brotherhood between Lucas, Snow, Rowe and Ian that really made this book absolutely compelling for me, and I cannot WAIT to read the other guys' stories (especially Ian's ❤️).

 

~ 5 STARS ~
