review SPOILER ALERT! 2018-10-20 16:01
Review: Heart-Shaped Box
Heart-Shaped Box - Joe Hill

Joe Hill has proven to me that he is a phenomenal storyteller.  His mind is a twisted as his father's, but he has managed to set himself apart.

 

The story was twisted and did not go the way I thought it would from the beginning.  There were twists and turns so unexpected that it was surprising, without leaving me too dizzy.  Craddock was a creepy, disgusting man who is hopefully frozen up to his neck in the river Cocytus, able to cry out in despair, but never receiving mercy.

 

This was the story of rock star, Judas Coyne and how he was pulled into a sadistic game of suicide/death by the stepfather (Craddock) and sister (Jessica) of one of his former paramours (Anna).  He and his current love, Marybeth get dragged onto the road trip from hell when Jude is tricked into purchasing what he thought was a phony haunted suit.  The suit; however, was indeed haunted by the ghost of Craddock who is intent on destroying Jude by making him murder Marybeth before taking his own life.  Once Jude realizes that the ghost is real and why he's after Jude, the fight to survive begins.

 

It was very well written and kept me hanging on for more.  The only part I disliked greatly was the death of Jude's dogs.  Fictional, I know, but animal death of any kind has become something (recently) that I do not handle well.  Now I'm starting to agree with the people who say that books should come with trigger warnings.  After that the book seemed to drag on, but not because it wasn't good.  I was just wanting it to be over so I could stop thinking about the dogs.  The ending was surprising and not at all what I expected to happen, which was refreshing, because I hate when I can guess how a book will end and am right.  Minus the parts with the dogs, this was a great read.  I will definitely read more from the author.

REVIEW TOUR, EXCERPT & #GIVEAWAY - With This Heart (With These Wings #2) by Red L. Jameson
With This Heart (With These Wings #2) - Red L. Jameson

Talk about a killer kiss…

Being a former soldier with PTSD takes its toll on Aaron and has wiped him clean of optimism along with having dreams. But he’s no longer sure if he’s living in reality or fantasy after he tries to save a friend and finds his world filled with women who have wings and…Valkyries.

Adala kills. Not on purpose. She’s a Valkyrie—from just one touch, she takes warriors to the afterlife. Oh, but she’d give anything for a break, for normalcy, to have one day of not wearing her legionnaire uniform. When she’s asked to talk to the human Aaron to help him understand just what he’s in for when he tripped into her world, she jumps at the chance, even though she knows Aaron more than she cares to admit, even though she has an insane crush on him, even though she can’t touch him at all. But she gets to wear jeans and talk to a man—a real-life, hero of a man.

From her adorable made-up swearwords to when she wears his clothes, from the fact that she’s hundreds of years old to her pet Pegasus, Aaron falls hard for the shy Valkyrie. Dare he risk his life for a kiss? He’s thinking about it, because already he’s given her his heart. 

With This Heart is a standalone story, that’s part of the With These Wings Series—books that mix rock-hard military men with feathered-fantasy femme fatales for a sizzling hot adventure to find love. Join Chanticleer winner, Red L. Jameson, for more of this heart-tugging fairy tale series.

REVIEW BY MERISSA - Photographic Heart (Itayu Lake #8) by A.M. Halford
Photographic Heart (Itayu Lake #8) - A.M. Halford

Photographic Heart is the eighth book in the Itáyu Lake series, and we have Brannon's story. He is the nephew of the two angelic aunts who have featured in previous books. He has had his vision and knows he will meet his mate soon, and a rough idea of where, hence why he is back at Itáyu Lake. Kyle has been sent to the Lake by a friend, who knows his friend will love the scenery there.

This was a well told story, making it an excellent addition to the series. This Lake is so well known by now, the author is able to concentrate on the connections between the mates, and everyone else who lives there. With lighthearted moments as well as heartbreaking ones, this book has something for everyone.

I would recommend reading this series from the start, just so you know who is with who! A great read, and 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. *
