3 Out of 5 "Medically Induced Coma" Stars
The Queen of Hearts - Kimmery Martin

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~ABOUT THE BOOK~

The Queen of Hearts

Kimmery Martin

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Zadie Anson and Emma Colley have been best friends since their early twenties when they first began navigating serious romantic relationships amid the intensity of medical school. Now they're happily married wives and mothers with successful careers--Zadie as a pediatric cardiologist and Emma as a trauma surgeon. Their lives in Charlotte, North Carolina are chaotic but fulfilling until the return of a former colleague unearths a secret one of them has been harboring for years. 

 

As chief resident, Nick Xenokostas was the center of Zadie's life--both professionally and personally--throughout a tragic chain of events in her third year of medical school that she has long since put behind her. Nick's unexpected reappearance during a time of new professional crisis shocks both women into a deeper look at the difficult choices they made at the beginning of their careers. As it becomes evident that Emma must have known more than she revealed about circumstances that nearly derailed both their lives, Zadie starts to question everything she thought she knew about her closest friend.

~MY QUICKIE REVIEW~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

My favorite character in this is a 3-year-old named Delaney…and she's a biter.   Why is this…she had more character than most of the rest of the cast put together.  Her mom Zadie wasn't so bad (especially her interactions with her kids)…but the rest…namely Emma and Xenokostas…I just didn't care about them.  The medical elements were the coolest aspects of this story, without those it was just people who paid a lot of money for their education acting like complete tools.

Boystown - Season 8
BOYSTOWN Season Eight - Jake Biondi

Another season and another winner!!

 

I swear every time I pick up a new season, after waiting months and months, I have to first go back and at least read an episode or two of the previous season to get my head back into this setting, these characters and these wicked circumstances.  

 

Once again, we have a season filled with all the glory of the classic soap operas from the 80's and 90's.  This season was certainly no different and yet nothing ever feels repetitive.

 

From engagements, to divorces, to cheating, to murder and backstabbing, to wicked behavior and intrigue.  We even got our first threesome scene...and boy was that hot as hell.  Phew.  

 

Every season brings forth new characters and honestly at this point I really need to be keeping a cheat sheet going to keep my head wrapped around everyone. And par for the course, the number of cliffhangers is high, much like our "who shot JR" classic antics...they are glorious to see unfold.  Still amazed that Chicago has this number of ambulances on standby. LMAO.

 

Another great and entertaining BR with Marco...we look forward to these at each and every release.  When we do finally see an end in sight, I see a full on reread of the series prior to reading it's conclusion.  Can't wait for that full binge.

 

**Highly Recommended**

Boystown - Season 7
BOYSTOWN Season Seven - Jake Biondi

Oh this was once again...tasty!

 

 

There are not many who can pull off this level of soap opera drama and do it so well but Jake Biondi has a knack that just can't be matched.  This was every bit as enjoyable as the other seasons and the backstabbing, cheating and crazy antics being had here are so damn enjoyable I swear we could hardly keep a straight face. Marco and I had a blast!

 

 

Once again, trust no one...

 

 

because you never know what will come next...

 

 

or who is telling the truth...

 

 

or who is sleeping with who...

 

 

or who wants to strangle who.

 

 

I only just wish there had been some scenes in the hospital...

 

 

Bwahahahaha!!!  Because I swear at one point there may have been not 1...

 

 

but 9 cast members in a hospital bed.  Gawd I love it.  

 

At this point, I honestly could handle a few being killed off...

 

 

Because...quite frankly the number of characters is overwhelming and keeping track of all the details can get to be a lot.  And yet, I am completely consumed.  

 

I only hope Camille remains...because there are very few like her around.

 

 

Once again the number of cliffhangers left our minds racing! And with 2 funerals in store, who will be in the caskets...actually dead??  We shall see.

 

Can't wait for this crazy train to continue!!
