BROKEN by Don Winslow, narrated by Ray Porter & Kaleo Griffith
Broken - Don Winslow, Narrated by Kaleo Griffith,Ray Porter

Don Winslow is beyond brilliant as far as crime writing is concerned!

 

BROKEN: SIX SHORT NOVELS, as the title suggests is 6 novellas, all of them excellent. The only one that didn't quite fill the bill for me was the Hawaiian one, but that's most likely because I haven't read the original book in which these characters were featured, (SAVAGES). Not yet, anyway.

 

I'm not going to go blow by blow with each story, but I have to give the final tale, THE LAST RIDE, a special mention because my heart is still recovering from its impact. Here, Mr. Winslow's politics are more involved than usual. In my case that was perfectly fine, because they're in line with my own. Politics aside though, I think most people can agree that children should not be kept in cages. Cal, a border patrol officer in Texas, doesn't think it's right either and he does something about it. THE LAST RIDE had a western feel to it and I'll say it again, it broke my freaking heart. I think my husband heard it break from across the room because he was asking me if I was okay.

 

I still have a backlog of Winslow books to catch up on, and those are something I very much look forward to during these uncertain times.

 

My highest recommendation!

SYNOPSIS

 

It’s always harder to forgive yourself...

Against her better judgment, Kelsey Kennedy flies in for her high school reunion. Since her classmates are as cruel to her as when she last saw them on graduation day, she has no difficulty bailing on the event for the hotel bar. Only it’s there she comes face-to-face with the most painful part of her past.

And he doesn’t recognize her.

Taking full advantage of her anonymity, Kelsey gives herself one night with Rierson Perrault, the boy from her childhood dreams. Being no one's fool, she makes sure she’s gone the next morning before he can ask any questions.

Ry didn’t realize the woman he spent the night with was Kelsey. But when he puts it together, he’s sick at heart. He’s lost his chance to reconcile with her; the only reason he went to the reunion to begin with. Kicking himself for not figuring it out sooner, he returns home embittered.

When Kelsey and Ry meet again in the heart of New Orleans, will another fifteen years need to pass before they find the right words to say? Or will they finally listen to each other's hearts so their easy reunion can begin?

Easy ReunionEasy Reunion by Tracey Jerald
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

High School Reunion's can be fun or they can be devastating. Kelsey has returned to the scene of the crime as it were. Those around her in high school were cruel to the point of physical violence. She only came back because her best friend in the world thinks it will help her move on and let go.

Rierson AKA "Ry" was always the best looking in school. He was the only defender of her honor. Until the Graduation Day when he didn't. The biggest reason she never returned until now. When they see one another its explosive. In a different way.

Such an amazingly sweet, yet very hot story. The touchy subject of bullying is handled so well it moved me to tears. I was impressed with the dark subject matter, that I ended up loving the book anyway. The characters are so easy to fall for, and reading their reunion and eventual HEA makes it all worthwhile.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

 

Tracey Jerald knew she was meant to be a writer when she would re-write the ending of books in her head on her bike when she was a young girl growing up in southern Connecticut. It wasn’t long before she was typing alternate endings and extended epilogues “just for fun”.

After college in Florida, where she obtained a degree in Criminal Justice swearing she saw things she’ll never quite believe and never quite forget, Tracey traded the world of law and order for IT.

Her work for a world-wide internet startup transferred her to Northern Virginia where she met her husband in what many call their own happily ever after. They have one son.

When she’s not busy with her family or writing, Tracey can be found in her home in north Florida drinking coffee, reading, training for a runDisney event, or feeding her addiction to HGTV.

High School Reunion's can be fun or they can be devastating.  Kelsey has returned to the scene of the crime as it were.  Those around her in high school were cruel to the point of physical violence.  She only came back because her best friend in the world thinks it will help her move on and let go.

 

Rierson AKA "Ry" was always the best looking in school.  He was the only defender of her honor.  Until the Graduation Day when he didn't.  The biggest reason she never returned until now.  When they see one another its explosive.  In a different way.

THE NEON RAIN by James Lee Burke, narrated by Will Patton
The Neon Rain - James Lee Burke,Will Patton

A Twitter pal talked me into starting these books and I'm glad she did.

 

My husband and I went on a trip to New Orleans in 1995, (so pre-Katrina), and I loved it. To this day it was the best vacation we ever had and the very best food I ever ate. We went shortly after Mardi Gras and it was warm and beautiful. We visited the zoo and botanical gardens, had lunch on the banks of the Mississippi, rode a street car through the Garden District and had dinner in the French Quarter. This book took me back there completely. Not to the touristy areas though-not at all.

 

The writing here is top notch, and the characters are complicated-nothing is black and white. I developed a real feeling for Dave Robicheaux and I am looking forward to reading more of the series.

 

I bought this audio with my hard earned cash through Audible, but I won't be buying the second one from them! (See below)

 

**A note to Audible-What is up with the severely abridged version of the audio for book 2? It's only 3 hours long and many reviews are complaining about that. Looks like I'll be doing some actual reading on the second book.**

Bold
His Consort - Mary Calmes

Jason moves to New Orleans wanting a new start.  The encounter he had before leaving his old place was reminding him he should make the most of it.  Here in NOLA, he has made new friends and found a new purpose.

 

Varic is the prince that he was told of.  Meeting him in person puts Jason on the edge.  He is wary, skeptical, and seriously attracted to him.  What kind of future would he have with a royal vampire?

 

This book quickly heats and is very fast paced.  I read it on its book birthday, since it had been in my TBR and I was curious.  I devoured each page and could not wait to finish.  This author never disappoints.  I give this read a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
