Some reviews of Give It Back:


“The mind games in this book rival those in Gone Girl only these characters are likable, well most of them anyway.” – Heidi from Goodreads.


“I was hooked to the book from the time I started reading and there’s no way you can predict what’s coming next – it is not the typical book where you can predict the storyline! It keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout. Keeps you guessing and the twists and turns are unpredictable.” – Sherin from Goodreads.


” I will say this book kept me on the edge of my seat! I actually cried a few timesand I yelled at the book more than once!  I really can’t wait to see what Danielle Esplin comes up with next.” – Kirstin from Goodreads.


The story really pulled me in right off the bat. That hasn’t been easy to do for me recently. There was just something about the story that kept me turning the pages. Every new scene just kind of had an ominous tone to it even if it was back story to beef up the main narrative. There was just something about this book. Very well written.” – Ben Mariner, author of Apocalypse Wow. 


“Give It Back by Danielle Esplin is a great read that will keep you guessing. Danielle Esplin created fascinating individual story arcs for each character bringing you into each story and struggle as it progress, and, in the end, brings them all together seamlessly, creating the overall story arc and answering all the reader’s questions. Overall, it is well written, with some very beautifully turned phrases.” –  L.W. Tichy, author of Tangled Web.

Give it Back



About Give it Back: 





Not long ago, Lorraine lost her husband to another woman. She thought that was the worst thing that could happen to her, but soon she realizes it’s just the beginning of an everlasting nightmare.




Lexy, an au pair from London, moves to Seattle to help Lorraine with her infant son. But she didn’t come for the child…she came for something else.




When Ella receives a call from her older sister, Lorraine, who begs her to leave San Diego to spend time with her, she decides to take a few days off from work to visit her. Frightened to see how much Lorraine has weakened since her diagnosis eight months ago, she packs a bag and heads to Seattle with a foreboding feeling that this might be the last time she sees Lorraine.


But on her way to the airport, she learns that something shocking has happened since she last spoke with Lorraine and now. To make matters worse, once Ella arrives in Seattle, Lorraine’s story keeps changing, making Ella question how reliable her sister really is.


Soon Ella is entangled in a mysterious investigation, and more so, in the lives of everyone involved. She realizes not only that she won’t go home anytime soon but also that she’ll never look at others the same way she did before.

Review: Lost Girls (DI Kim Stone #3) by Angela Marsons
Lost Girls: A fast paced, gripping thriller novel (Detective Kim Stone crime thriller series Book 3) - Angela Marsons

Publisher: Bookouture (November 6, 2015)


ISBN-13: 978-1910751411


Source: Netgalley


Rating: 5*



When nine-year-old best friends Charlie and Amy disappear, two families are plunged into a living nightmare. A text message confirms the unthinkable; that the girls are the victims of a terrifying kidnapping.

And when a second text message pits the two families against each other for the life of their children, the clock starts ticking for D.I. Kim Stone and the squad.

Seemingly outwitted at every turn, as they uncover a trail of bodies, Stone realises that these ruthless killers might be the most deadly she has ever faced. And that their chances of bringing the girls home alive, are getting smaller by the hour…

Untangling a dark web of secrets from the families’ past might hold the key to solving this case. But can Kim stay alive long enough to do so? Or will someone’s child pay the ultimate price?



I could hardly wait to start reading Lost Girls after devouring the first two DI Kim Stone novels, but have sometimes been disappointed in the past with books that run in a series and feature the same main character, in crime and other genres.


I really did not think that Angela could top Silent Scream and Evil Games, but Lost Girls really ups the ante with it's terrifying premise. I felt like I was on an emotional rollercoaster, along with the parents of missing children. It was a non-stop ride of terror that didn't let up until the very end. As I finished the last page, I felt like I needed a soothing cuppa, followed by a very long lie down, but not in a darkened room *shudder*!


Thanks to Kim at Bookouture for the opportunity to read and review this fantastic book.

The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #2)
The Sea of Monsters - Rick Riordan

This book of the series was also a whole lot of fun! While this series does include the same process: one huge plot of the series, small subplot (each book) and a quest to fulfill that subplot/book which then contributes to the overall plot of the story; it is still enjoyable to read about. :)


The first time I listened to The Lightning Thief I didn’t like the audiobook version because I didn’t like the voice of the narrator, Jesse Bernstein. Of course, I am glad I chose to go with this series because I really enjoyed his voice in this book! I think that Jesse Bernstein’s greatest pluses for narrating this series is the changes in tone—which really helps set the stage of the story!


I feel like I didn’t enjoy Percy as much in this book compared to the first one. In the beginning he seemed really self-contradictory and it was kind of annoying. I, personally, really liked Tyson and I didn’t see what there was to be embarrassed about him!


Another thing I liked in this book was the Siren scene, because when Annabeth saw her flaws with the whole song thing and she mentioned to Percy how she thought that she could kind of see Luke’s point of view, I was kind of glad there was more complexity into Luke’s thinking.

(spoiler show)


Overall, The Sea of Monsters was better than The Lightning Thief plot-wise, but I don’t think I enjoyed the characters as much in this. It had a lot of action though! I would recommend this series to people who want something quick to read through and enjoyable (if you’re interested in Greek mythology)!


Thanks for reading my review everyone and hope you have a great day! Until the next one! :D

Is the next book out yet? *taps foot*
Night Broken - Patricia Briggs

*Book source ~ Local library.


Mercedes Athena Thompson Hauptman, otherwise known as Mercy, is living her life married to an Alpha werewolf and hunk named Adam, her stepdaughter Jesse and the pack. Things aren’t always smooth sailing, especially when some members of the pack are asshats, but it’s not so bad and life is pretty good. Until Adam’s ex-wife Christy calls and begs for protection from a scary stalker boyfriend she hopped into bed with without knowing who he was. Can we say idiot? Anyway, Mercy tells Adam that she can stay with them even though she knows it’s a bad idea. But she’ll take the high road even if it kills her. And after finding out who Christy’s stalker is, it just might.


I have a love-hate relationship with the Mercy Thompson series. I love them. I know when I pick one up I will not get anything else done. I will read it from beginning to end or pass out from sleep deprivation or hunger. I hate I plow through the books and then I have to wait forever for the next one. I mean, it takes like a bazillion years for the next book to come out! Well, *clasps hands behind back, looks down and draws circles in dirt with toe of shoe* maybe it only seems that way. Anyway, I had some issues with some of the characters in this book *cough* Adam *cough*, but I did love the book and was once again held captive by the writing, plot and my desire to find out what happens on the next page and the next and the next…well, you get the idea.


What I loved: The fast pace, new characters, mythology mixed in, Mercy, the walking stick and seeing some familiar faces. Especially Tad. Boy, Tad was surprising and I’m curious how that’s going to work out.


My issues? Adam’s relationship with his ex. Christy is obviously his Achilles Hell. I mean, Heel. How he could have possibly seen anything in her to love, I have no idea. But when she comes and takes over the house and he lets her, he gives her fond looks, reminiscing about old times in front of Mercy…gah! Not.Cool. I was pissed at him, but since I can see what a manipulative bitch she is and that she is his kryptonite, I had to cut him some slack. He can’t help it. Everyone has that one person who does that to us and she is his.


Another issue I had was the way Mercy is treated by some of the pack. Did she not save everyone’s furry asses in the last fucking book? And STILL they think she’s not good enough because she’s a coyote and a walker? Well, fuck them. They don’t have to like her, but they should be treating her with respect. Not just because she’s Adam’s mate, but she has fucking earned it! More than once! Yeah, that pisses me off. *sigh*


Finally, I have to tell you, I didn’t see this last one until my husband asked, “Well? Did they get the bad guy?” It was while I was explaining what happened that it dawned on me. There was a huge, glaring, nigh catastrophic, discrepancy in the story and I was completely bummed. It is possible, in my sleep deprived state, I may have missed a detail, but I don’t think so. To prevent spoiling it for those who have not read it, I will only say this to those who have…think about the fight in the garage and then think about the fight at the end. Do you see what I’m talking about? Send me an email if you want to discuss it.


In conclusion, though I had some issues with the storyline and characters, I mostly base my ratings on how well the book stays glued to my hands. This is one I had to force myself to put down so I could get some sleep and then the next day I had to force myself to stay away from it until the household chores were done before finishing it. So…5 bites.
