Lightning Men: A Novel - Thomas Mullen
I could not wait to read this book. I loved Darktown, the first in this series, and this one rates right up there with it.

The story of two black police officers in Atlanta, something Atlanta had never had before, who have to fight discrimination at every corner from their fellow officers, their bosses and the people they are paid to protect.

The author did such a great job with the characters and their issues making me feel as though I was seeing the movie while reading this book.

The obstacles this policemen, Lucius Boggs and Tommy Smith, had to confront every day was frightening and so well presented and written.

I am most definitely eagerly awaiting the next in the series as the author left me with some clues as to what's coming and I can't wait!

Huge thanks to Atria Books and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

Tempted & Taken
Tempted & Taken (Men of Haven) - Rhenna Morgan

Title: Tempted & Taken

Author:  Rhenna Morgan

Publisher:  Carina Press

Series:  Men of Haven Series # 4

Reviewed By:  Arlena Dean

Rating:  Five

Review:

 

"Tempted & Taken" by Rhenna Morgan

 

My Thoughts...

 

This was another good series of the 'Men of Haven # 4 that was indeed a good read.  The story features one of my favorite of the 'Men of Haven' Knox Torren who  was yes a 'coder, hacker, dominant alpha and a friend.'  Then you add Darya Volkova who had to hide her identity, wanting to work for Knox and the reader will be ready for a wonderful story of how this will all work out as these two are drawn together.

 

Will Knox be able to save Darya from who she is running from? Will their chemistry that have for each other be able to keep them together? I loved how this author brings it all out about Knox past and why he was the way he was especially when it came to the women he came involved with.  With all the Haven Men, with their wives and moms  being involved again really makes this story so very real as they come together helping  just when it was needed.  Also, I liked some of the new characters that were new to this series that was added to to give the reader a different spin in how the story turned out. 

 

I will say it was great seeing Knox with Darya.  Now, will they get their HEA?  Well you will just have to pick up "Tempted & Taken" to see how this author brings out another good series to  the readers.  All that is left for me to say is that Knox was truly one guy I loved reading about where he finally gets his happiness!

Why did Marvel do this?
Old Man Logan (2016-) #19 - Jeff Lemire,Filipe Andrade,Andrea Sorrentino

Usually they're good about filling in the holes if you haven't read the series, which seems like a good marketing strategy since they give these away for free with the digital uploads of your regular comic purchases.   This time, I had no idea what happened: Wolverine specifically mentions an incident with Jean Grey going into his head that kicks all this off, and I have no fragging idea what happened. 


Overall, it didn't impact the heavily emotional and emotive story about Wolverine wanting to go back to the future he came from, to save the baby he didn't mean to abandon, but did when he left.   The whole 'we won't help you to preserve the timeline' by all the magicians is both understandable and heartbreaking, especially since many of these are friends, many of whom he's worked with before.   

 

Not sure I'll continue with this storyline, but it was a fun, free read.   The problem is Marvel does enough stuff that I like that I have to weed out some excellent stories for the ones that strike me more, that fill an emotional or mental need I have.

Review: Make Me Yours by Rebecca Brooks
Make Me Yours (Men of Gold Mountain) - Rebecca Brooks

4.25 stars - My review cross-posted from Wit and Sin

 

Once upon a time, Claire Collins fell fast and hard for bad boy Ryan Thomas. But Ryan was an up-and-coming musician whose alcoholism was making him spiral out of control. When Claire found out she was pregnant and Ryan was too drunk to even talk to her about it, she did what was best for her child and left him. It’s been more than five years since they last spoke, but when Ryan comes to Gold Mountain on his comeback tour to find not only Claire, but the daughter he didn’t know existed, everything changes. The chemistry between Ryan and Claire is as hot as ever. But even though Ryan is Claire’s weakness, she always puts her daughter first. And if Ryan wants a chance at winning the heart of the woman he loves and the daughter who immediately grabs his heart, he’s going to have to prove that he has changed.

There’s nothing I love more than a good second chance romance and Make Me Yours is exactly that. Rebecca Brooks has a talent for delivering wonderfully human characters which is what makes this story compelling.

Ryan is a recovering alcoholic who lost everything. He’s worked hard to remain sober and rebuild his career, and I respected the hell out of that. Ryan is a flawed hero, one who makes a number of mistakes. But he’s also incredibly loving and is working to be a better man. Claire’s life was turned upside down when she got swept up in Ryan’s world the first time. Since leaving him, the businesswoman and single mother has worked her butt off to build a life for herself and her daughter. She’s strong and protective and definitely wary of letting Ryan in her heart again. Upon seeing each other again, the two of them strike sparks. Their romance is both emotional and incredibly sexy (I’ll never look at rock climbing the same way again). I liked that Ms. Brooks didn’t make things easy on them; there are a couple of ups and downs and even when the characters messed up, I could understand why they made the mistakes they did – there’s no false drama in this book.

Make Me Yours is by turns sexy and sweet and I may have sniffled a time or two. I adored Claire and Ryan together and I loved catching up with Claire’s friends, the previous Men of Gold Mountain heroines. All in all, Make Me Yours is an engaging story with characters who grab your heart and don’t let go.
