Underground Tombs – A Perfect Obsession by Heather Graham @heathergraham
A Perfect Obsession: A Novel of Romantic Suspense (New York Confidential) - Heather Graham

Uh oh. I don’t like tight spaces, but it looks like I will have to get over it in order to read A Perfect Obsession by Heather Graham…and I will.

 

A Perfect Obsession (New York Confidential #2)

 

Goodreads  /  Amazon

 

MY REVIEW

 

There is never any doubt, when it comes to Heather Graham, that I will grab her book without hesitation. Even a bad book by Heather Graham is a good book and I would definitely recommend A Perfect Obsession.

 

Kieran Finnegan, a psychologist, also works at the family pub and shares a bed with her FBI guy, Craig Frasier. He knows to keep tabs on her because trouble seems to find her…or does she find it?

 

A model/actress was murdered just around the corner from Finnegan’s, but nobody thought it was connected to the family…until her brother, Kevin, told her his secret.

Someone wanted her found.

 

“Living art.”

 

It’s easy to figure out that Kieran is Irish. She has three brothers. They are quick to defend and protect her, since she’s prone to finding trouble to get into.

 

We have a headstrong woman, a hunky cop, mystery and dead bodies on display in mausoleums that haven’t seen the light of day in decades, but…

 

I’m not sure what’s going on, but I’m just not getting into this like I do most of her work. Am I having an off day? Or is it because it’s an ARC and will be tidied up before publishing. I think it will get better. You’ll need to check out A Perfect Obsession to figure it out for yourself.

 

I feel on edge. I keep thinking…waiting…for “the moment”…when the monster reaches out from under the bed and grabs me.

Heather has created a sense of menace from the serial killer. I can’t put my finger on the villain. Have I met him?

 

 

Uh Oh. I think I know who it is and we have a big problem.

 

I started out having a hard time getting into the story. I don’t know why. It has all the elements I require for a thrilling read. I rarely give up on a book, and I sure wasn’t going to give up on a Heather Graham book. And it is worth sticking with. As usual, she leaves me wanting more and I can hardly wait to pick up another one of her stories.

 

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of A Perfect Obsession by Heather Graham.

Review: Killer Party
Killer Party (A Tourist Trap Mystery) - Lynn Cahoon

I liked this, but I didn't love it. While the mystery was interesting and intriguing, I didn't care for any of Greg's friends, and that made me feel a little apathetic towards solving the murder and seriously Jill, get over the whole relationship angst. The surprising and exciting ending was a great way to end the book, and overall it was entertaining and enjoyable. Mostly, I just enjoy another visit to South Cove and catching up with Jill, Greg and the Coffee, Books & More gang (And I really concerned about Aunt Jackie!)

Road Kill: A Serial Killer Novella (Terror Collection) by Shawn Raiford
Road Kill: A Serial Killer Novella-Terro... Road Kill: A Serial Killer Novella-Terror Collection (Kindle Single) - Shawn Raiford Road Kill: A Serial Killer Novella (Terror Collection) by Shawn Raiford is an novella about Ana who is not a victim. She's tired and wants to sleep. It was graphically written and a difficult story to read. The subject matter was creepy and it needs editing for grammar. It left me feeling disturbed and depressed. I gave it almost four stars. "Ana had gone to psychologists to help her with her anger management problem. Her doctor always told her, 'Words are just sound traveling through the air and cannot physically harm you. It's up to you how you react to them.' Ana understood the doctor but words also had meaning to people. To her." I received a complimentary Kindle copy in an Amazon promotion. That did not change my opinion for this review.

Buried Alive in Sinful Vows by Kristine Mason @KristineMason7
Sinful Vows (Book 3 Sinful C.O.R.E.) (C.O.R.E. Series) - Kristine Mason

WOO HOO, get your copy of Sinful Vows by Kristine Mason now.

 

OMG. What a fabulous cover for Sinful Vows by Kristine Mason.

 

I am a huge fan of Kristine Mason’s and I am so happy to be back in her world. I know there will be laughs, danger and death, not necessarily in that order, and I look forward to digging in. LOL

 

Goodreads  /  Amazon

 

MY REVIEW

 

Kristine Mason can go from light and sweet to dark and deadly at the snap of a finger.

A secret to be kept. How far to go to keep it? He went all the way, and once started, his nightmares drove him.

 

Whitney was patiently waiting for the right man to come along, taking a ribbing from Andy. Her and Andy had an easy relationship, working side by side, sharing lively banter. She looks at him as an older brother.

 

Whitney is the first female detective in the narc unit of Cuyoga County Sheriff’s Department in Cleveland, Ohio. But, her biological clock is tick, tick, ticking away, so when she goes undercover in the burbs, with a fake husband and ‘white picket fence’, I know there is romance in the air. Enter CORE. And a hunka burning love is coming her way.

 

Let’s meet Sloan North, ‘a giant, hairy beast, covered in leather, denim and chains.’

 

She’s an ‘Amazonian Barbie’ and a bit too mouthy and bossy for him. Guess he’ll need to get over it, because between you and me, they will be hooking up for the long term.

 

Kristine Mason has a way with writing and descriptions, bringing her characters to life with a humorous hint and lively banter.

 

“How do you fit in this thing?” “Just fine.” They are talking about her Fiat 500 hatchback.

 

“You should too. If not, I’ll open the sunroof and you can put your head through there.”

It keeps on going and I can’t help but laugh out loud. Wonderful dialogue and I commend Kristine Mason’s ability to write it. It appears to be done so effortlessly.

 

I love when he pulled off his shirt at the department store, to try on the shirt Whitney had chosen for him in his new role as a suburban husband. WHOA, I can see it now. And the women shoppers reaction. “I’d keep him naked.” LOL

 

Hilarious writing of Whitney and Sloan’s dialogue and thoughts. Kept me in stitches.

 

Usually Kristine Mason’s stories are dark and dangerous and I have a feeling we’ll get to that, but I am liking all the fun dialogue and thoughts running through their heads.

 

I love when he forgot he was carrying her around their new fake home…and she let him.

 

The kids at the door were so sweet and funny.

 

I love Whitney leaving sticky notes for him everywhere, bossing him from afar. For being so organized, she sure is a slob.

 

Suburbia – we have the slut, the gossip, the dickhead…Sloan fights the whole shebang…suburbia, fake wife…but begins to nest, fixing this, planting that, buying this.

The Goldhirsch brothers…

 

I even feel bad for the serial killer. How is it possible for me to feel bad for someone that buries people alive? I hope that doesn’t say bad things about me. LOL I think it just says great things about Kristine Mason’s writing. She has several plots running simultaneously.

 

Whitney and Sloan act like a couple of teenagers trying to show the other they don’t like each other, afraid of being hurt or embarrassed. When they finally confront their interest, it is so cute, innocent, and childishly sweet.

 

Her best friend, Morgan…what a hoot. Sometimes the peripheral characters pop in and steal the show.

 

When Whitney’s parents come to their pretend home, I couldn’t help but laugh at her mother’s comments. Kristine does seem to sneak in an Ohio State fan in her novels. I catch it, because I am a Michigan Wolverine fan. Have no fear. We get along great.

 

I bounced back and forth on the rating, because I LOVE Kristine’s ability to take me into a deep, dark place with characters that scare the holy crap out of me and make me revel in the evil that men do. Sinful Vows does not quite take me there. Sure, we have some evil guys, doing evil things, but we are in suburbia, playing pretend house and enjoying all the humor that entails.

 

BUT, as you can see from my rambling review, I just want to keep sharing more and more and more, so…you bet ya…5 Stars it is.

Dark and Dangerous – Cold Moon by Alexandra Sokoloff @AlexSokoloff
Cold Moon - Alexandra Sokoloff

Alexandra Sokoloff has blown me away, with her Huntress/FBI Thriller Series. Huntress Moon, Book I (see my review here) continues through Blood Moon, Book II (see my review here) and I am unable to stop reading. It’s like Lays Potato Chips…you can’t eat just one. Well, I couldn’t read just one. I went through Book II, III and IV on a binge read. And…I see there is a Book V, Hunger Moon, and I aim to get my hands on that one too.

 

The covers are awesome and kudos to the designers. Cold Moon is done by…

Cold Moon (The Huntress/FBI Thrillers, #3)

Goodreads  /  Amazon US  /  Amazon UK  /  Amazon CA

 

MY REVIEW

 

After reading Blood Moon, Book II, by Alexandra Sokoloff, there was no way I could stop. I kept on reading through Cold Moon and Bitter Moon. Now I see we have Hunger Moon, which would be Book V, and I will jump through hoops to get my hands on it.

 

The moon talks to Cara. Does it talk to you? What does it say?

 

We begin with Roarke’s nightmare, waking him. Cara…

 

She faces her own terror in the night, but vows IT will never take her.

 

“Fair as the moon and cold as ice.”

 

Roark’s team functions like a well oiled machine, even when personalities occasionally clash and opinions differ. They always get their ‘man’.

 

Cold Moon takes an even closer look into the depraved, the abused, the lost and those who care about them. Human trafficking of women and children, enslaved in prostitution, bought and sold, used and abused. Who will stand up for them, defend them, save them?

 

How can an online presence affect people, politics, legalities, courts…The anonymity of cyber activism.

 

I do not want to spoil any of the goodies contained in Cold Moon, the third book of Cara and Roarke’s story, so I will just throw out some hints and ask you…what would you do?

Evil…can you see it, smell it, touch it, feel it? Is it alive? Do you do something about it yourself?

 

Is it self defense, if you know evil is coming your way, and you take it out first?

 

My emotions are raging in anger and disgust. I know this goes on, day in and day out, and I wonder if those who, in real life, try to stem the flow of evil feel it is too big, there are too many. One by one they WILL fall.

 

“There is something larger at work…a force beyond the simply human. A female vengeance against outrages.”  Santa Muerte

 

“Sometimes death for one is salvation for another.”

 

I love the dark and dangerous, unique and original, direction Alexandrar Sokoloff takes in this story. I am afraid to google some of the online forums she talks about. I am afraid of what I will find out. Will evil know I am looking and come for me? She continues to thrill and amaze me, disgust and frighten me, leaving me ALWAYS wanting more.
