great book and great characters
Chased (The Chase Brothers, Book 3) Paperback - September 1, 2007 - Lauren Dane

Liv was being picked up by her friend Cassie and Maggie to go to Polly and Edwards fortieth wedding anniversary party. Liv had been crying and told her friends Brody had cheated on her with Lyndsay Cole, Liv had walked in on them in Brody’s apartment as she had got off work early and had brought brody some dinner. All Liv wanted was someone she could trust  someone she could come home to at the end of the day and share her life with. She wanted to be in love, and get married and have kids not tomorrow but someday. Marc claimed a dance with Liv at his parents party and he thought about how good it felt to have her body next to his. Marc had wanted to kiss liv pretty badly but his father cut in. Marc did kiss Liv at the Founder Day’s picnic even if she was there on a a date with another man.Liv told Marc she wanted someone who was looking for toward marriage and permanency. Marc dated everyone he could think of for the next month but none of them got Liv out of his thoughts finally Marc called Liv. No man had ever made Liv speechless but Marc did and he pushed every button and Liv wasn’t sure why or how. Marc had set out to woo her and he was.

I loved this book, it was a quick fun romantic read. I now have a new romantic read to put in my favorites group. I loved how sweet Liv was and I loved her and Marc together. I also loved how Marc’s family had already accepted and loved Liv when she had dated Marc’s older brother Matt but it hadn’t worked Matt hadn’t been ready to settle down but the remained the best of friends. When Matt saw Marc really wanted a long term relationship with Liv he was all for it. I felt so bad when Liv saw Marc with his ex. I felt like I was there with everyone and that is special when an author can transport you inside her story. I loved how Marc showed up in Atlanta and made Liv agree to spend two days and face herself and he also faced himself and were totally honest with each other and opened to each other. Just an overall great book and I happily I could happily find nothing to criticize. I love the characters and the ins and outs and I highly recommend.

I’d once overheard my daddy tell my momma that the six Winston boys had inherited their father’s ability to charm snakes, the IRS, and women.

I am just binging on non-fiction, as it grabbing me so much more than fiction. I went a little OTT at the library and pulled a bunch of books. I have two read-a-thons I am doing towards the latter half of the month.

 

 

1. No One Would Listen: A True Financial Thriller by Harry Markopolos

         My current read is how Markopolos discovered the Bernie Madoff Ponzi scheme and was the whistleblower that brought Madoff down. He is not kind AT ALL to the SEC. 

 

2. Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption by Bryan Stevenson

           I want to learn more about criminal justice reform, so I am starting here.

 

3. Lafayette in the Somewhat United States by Sarah Vowell

              For the July 4th holiday, I am trying Vowell for the first time.

 

4. Negroland: A Memoir by Margo Jefferson

               Heard nothing but good things about this book.

 

5. The True American: Murder and Mercy in Texas by Anand Giridharadas

              True Crime that doesn't involve Wall Street.

 

6. Lethal Warriors: When the New Band of Brothers Came Home, Uncovering the Tragic Reality of PTSD by David Philipps

                This is a really long title.

 

7. Zodiac Unmasked: The Identity of America's Most Elusive Serial Killer Revealed by Robert Graysmith

                 True Crime.

 

8. Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI by David Grann

                      True Crime plus history.

 

9. Believe Me: A Memoir of Love, Death, and Jazz Chickens by Eddie Izzard

                      Not a true crime book, lol. Manicure on the cover is beautifully done.

 

10. Eye on the Struggle: Ethel Payne, the First Lady of the Black Press by James McGrath Morris

                    Also not a true crime book. I wish she was more of a household name today as she was when she was working.

Flesh Cartel, Season 5: Reclaimation, Episode #19: Promise
The Flesh Cartel #19: Promise (The Flesh Cartel Season 5: Reclamation) - Heidi Belleau,Rachel Haimowitz

*Full Series (Episode 1-19) Non-Spoiler Review*

 

I am still quite speechless over this series.  Absolutely one of the most emotional, gut-wrenching, heartbreaking and equally rewarding mind fucks I have ever read. And easily one of the best books/series I will read all year and one I would start all over again right now if I was not so emotionally drained.  I will give this one time to fully digest and will most definitely be re-entering this Cartel again in the future.

 

Is this series for everyone?  Likely not.  But it is worth it...I guarantee.  The physical abuse these boys are subjected to is like nothing I have ever read.  And while there are series like those written by our dear Nicholas Bella, those are characters in which self healing is a part of their character makeup. That is simply not the case here.  These are humans and they are slaves and part of a world which unfortunately I believe exists.   

 

 

Not once was I bored or let down by a single episode.  Each one beautifully crafted and quite thought provoking. You are constantly left wondering the mental state of these characters, if they are truly broken, playing along or just so fucked they don't know which way is up.  While the physical torture is taxing, it is the mental torture that will leave you breathless.  

 

 

 

Grab a friend and take the challenge.  These boys will grab a hold of you and will not let you go.  You will be yearning for more with each  and every episode. 

 

 

Thank you Marco for a BR I won't soon forget.
