Space Force by Jeremy Robinson
Space Force - Jeremy Robinson

No, no, no....I am sorry, Jeremy, you know I'm a big fan, but this was my least favorite of all your books. For the reasons some of the other reviewers loved it, I did not. Didn't care for the potty humor, gamer references, (guess cuz I'm not a gamer), the over-the-top silliness of the whole thing, and the obvious storyline. Just not my cup tea, but don't worry, I am still a fan and will always read anything you write, except a Space Force sequel.

 

(I know it's supposed to be a funny book, but I still didn't like it)

Alter By Jeremy Robinson
Alter - Jeremy Robinson

A story about what happens to an everyday, normal guy who is accidentally thrust into an unforgiving environment and the changes he undergoes as he tries to adapt. It is visceral and sometimes depressing, but it is a story of survival.

 

Very different from the author's other books, but I am sure it had a lot to do with the medical issues he has been going through lately. Maybe Jeremy saw a little of himself in the main character. Whatever the case, you can tell he put a lot of his soul into it.

 

An enjoyable read and recommended. 5 stars.

Where Children Run by Karen Emilson
Where Children Run - Karen J. Emilson

Every so often, I get Amazon Prime for a month just to do some shopping, usually for Christmas or birthdays. Anyways, because it comes with a free prime book of your choosing to read, I decided to go with this one.

 

This is the story of the Pischke family, particularly Dennis and David, the twins, who lived on a farm in Canada during the 1950's- 1960's. The children's real father has died and their mother takes up with a man named Bob Domko, or as they refer to him, Satan. It is the story of their abuse, neglect, and horror at the hands of this man, and it is heart-breaking.

 

I don't know why I read stories like these....they make me so angry, and sad at the same time. But, I love it when children like them grow up and are able to rise above their situations and come out triumphant on the other side.

This one was tough to read, but it was very compelling. They even made a documentary about them.

4 stars and recommended for those with strong stomachs.

The Complications of T (The Actor's Circle #1) by Bey Deckard Review
The Complications of T - Bey Deckard,Starr Waddell

Stuart Leandro knows he’s washed up, both on the big screen, and in his marriage. Then, when things take an even bigger turn for the worse one night, he winds up blind drunk and lost in a foreign city.

Thankfully, someone’s there to rescue him before his face ends up plastered all over the tabloids.

Wary of the motives of the reclusive stranger who brings the fading star into the quiet shelter of a hip but isolated loft, Stuart nonetheless can't deny his curiosity… Or his attraction. Tim is unlike anyone the actor has ever met, but underneath the mystery and quiet attempts at invisibility, Stuart discovers someone whose life has been intertwined with his own for years.

Neither could have predicted that Tim's act of kindness would lead to one of the most intense encounters of their lives—but, are they willing to weather the media storm their extraordinary relationship will cause?

 

Review

 

I like the center of this romance between Tim and Stuart. 

We get an intense time of them together while Stuart hides out a bit before dealing with his impending divorce and rethinking his acting career. 

However, as nice as those moments are, we don't get them together in the more complicated world and we don't get enough resolution with any of the outside factors.

So, unfinished in too many ways and I don't want a sequel to address these areas, I wanted a fuller love story here.

Angst: The Collective Season Two, Episode 7 - Samantha Cole

This is book #2.7, in The Collective Season Two series.  This novel can be read as a standalone.  For more information about the series, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading these in order.

 

Carson moved to San Francisco to take a position that furthered his career as a doctor.  The love of his life decided to make the move with him there.  Only they never see each other anymore.  

 

Quinn is not sure he wants to stay in his current job.  He moved here with Carson to be with the man who he loved beyond all else.  Their careers are so demanding, that it seems they have no time together lately.

 

While this series has its own thread weaving through all the books, this one turns up the heat and keeps it blasting.  This author is an automatic buy for me and this story does not disappoint.  Thrilling, and full of suspense, this is a story that will leave you breathless and wanting more.  I give this a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
