Hell Will Rise (Bloodthirst Mafia #1) by Skyla Murphy

I received this book to give an honest review. 
So I really did enjoy the story and the way that Hunter could read numbers and crack codes was really awesome, never read a mafia story with that in. 
We learn that Hunter has lost it all and joined the Mafia but it has not been easy the things he has seen and endured are enough to bring any man or woman to their knees. Yet Hunter isn't just a normal person he has learned to take the heartache and pain like a champ. 
When Shayla enters his life it is not all rainbows Hunter is given a choice and he is to follow through or bad things will happen. 
It seems that Shayla and Hunter are connected in some way and when the truth is reveled the question will be asked. Can Hunter not kill her?
We see how a relationship could happen between Hunter and Shayla and we see the chemistry there it just takes a long time to take hold. Now as far as characters go I do enjoy them yet Shayla drove me crazy with her smart mouth. 
At times I can understand why she would get mouthy but in other situations it was like okay you gotta know when to be quiet. Hunter as a character I liked him. Especially the way he handled his life and knew that he made a mistake joining the Mafia but yet he knew why he had to. His back and forth with Shayla was ridiculous. Like he knew she couldn't be in his life yet needed her to be. He would rub his hands all over and get all hot and bothered but yet didn't want to have sex with her under the circumstances.
Other than that it was a good book to read with plenty of action. The way the ending came about I am ready to read the next book. I need to know what choice will Hunter make?

OMEGA (Mackenzie Grey #4) by Karina Espinosa
OMEGA: A New Adult Urban Fantasy (Mackenzie Grey Book 4) - Karina Espinosa

Karina Espinosa’s OMEGA was an amazing conclusion to the Mackenzie Grey series.  Mackenzie Grey is investigating a serial killing in New York for the Supernatural Investigative Unit (SIU).  Meanwhile, she is still suffering from the events the transpired with her pack and the Lunas.  This contemporary urban fantasy is suitable for adult audiences.

 

I loved this book.  Karina Espinosa continues to do an exceptional job with her plot and character development.   Mackenzie is understandably struggling with the aftermath from the Luna rebellion.  She has sequestered herself from other wolves.  She is suffering mentally and physically.   She is punishing herself.  She goes through more than any one person should have to endure.  She is strong and smart.  She is an exceptional leader.  She transforms a lot throughout this story. 

 

I love that so many characters from the previous books were brought back in this novel.  The story has valuable lessons and good observations.  It had me feeling just about every emotion. I cry toward the ending.  OMEGA was well concluded.  I am sad the series ended.  I would love to see a spin off series.  I also think the Mackenzie Grey series would make an excellent movie or television series.  I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Cross Check: A Bayard Hockey Novel - Kelly Jamieson

This is book # 2 in the Bayard Hockey series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and understanding of the series, I recommend reading in order.

 

Ben & Ella have best friends in common, who are dating.  They are always invited to get together with them.  They do not really seem to get along.

 

Ella finds herself suddenly attracted to a man she never considered remotely hot before.  She is appreciating all the other qualities about him she never knew.  Now if only she knew why?

 

I love this series!  Whew.  Okay, now that we have that out of the way - I just want to tell you I think this is the best book yet.  I really love the controversial subjects and how they were handled here.  The characters are very down to earth with real world problems.  Who doesn't love a story with hot hockey players?  Great solid read.  I give this book a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

 

 

***This early copy was given by Netgalley and its publishers, in exchange for an honest review.

quote 2017-08-05 05:10
“Kiss me."

I cleared my throat softly even though a doctor had come in and so everyone had turned to him. "Your family is here."

"Don't care, can't feel anything unless you're touching me."

That comment again, from before. "When you're better, you'll tell me what that means."

"Tell you now." He took a breath. "Other people touch me, it's like nothing. When you do it, it's like electric current on my skin, and it goes right to my heart and other places."

"Nice."

"You asked." He smiled wickedly; the sarcasm had not been lost on him.”

A Total Disaster.
Vivian's List - Haleigh Lovell

The characters in this book were not likable. I couldn't stand Vivian. For the first couple of pages in the book, I thought it was telling from the point of view of a sixteen-year old because of the way she talked and her actions. But later on, I found out that she was twenty-two years old and couldn't help but roll my eyes. Her personality made it seem like she was a teenager, and I couldn't believe the fact that a twenty-two year old would say:

"I mean, there was penetration, but not with his, you know..."
Then her friend says, "Not with his noodle,"
— What are we? Twelve? It was a major disappointment and it made me hate it. Another example is when Vivian stated:
"Can't handle what you're telling me. Now I just want to go home and wash my brain out with soap."

I could just envision Vivian being like sixteen and saying this to her best friend, but NOT a twenty-two year old. But enough about her, the intimate scenes were cute. The plot however, was not interesting. How Brody was treating Vivian, a twenty-two year old, was nerve-racking and I couldn't wrap my head around why she constantly defended him like an idiot. Somehow Brody miraculously moved on and never showed his face again, even though he was the controlling type and didn't want her to leave him. I would've expected more from his character, to be more persistent in getting her back, but oh well.
I just couldn't enjoy the plot, when there were so many things wrong with it. I just can't.
