Marvel shows the dark side of humanity without making the villains seem unsympathetic
Kingpin (2003-2004) #1 - Bruce Jones,Sean Phillips,Esad Ribic

It's kind of ironic that I feel more sympathy for The Kingpin, who's painted as a monster, than Hawkeye, who's trying to do good, but is so casually oblivious about his assholeness that I wanted someone to fucking stab him at... a lot of points. 

 

The Kingpin, who is Wilson Fisk, is a man who rules with a tight fist, that he has no hesitation about using as a weapon if someone fails him, or ignores him, or disrespects him.   He is also willing and able to pit people against each other in order to take out those who stand in his way, not even batting an eye at demoting or sacrificing his loyal people to get what he wants.   He sees the world as Trump does, in that there are winners or losers.   You are strode upon, or you stride upon the backs of others.   In fact, both men cower to overbearing fathers as children, although Fisk has it beaten into him - at least in some backstories - that this is the way the world works.   (And just to clarify: I don't know what happened to Trump as a child, but I have heard quotes from The Art of the Deal that were watered down versions of what he told the author - and it seems to me that Trump's father was overbearing.)

 

The difference, for me, between Trump and Fisk is that Fisk is not overtly misogynistic and racist.   He keeps his calm and while he won't brook disrespect, because he believes it will leave him open to further attacks, he doesn't take it as personally as Trump does.   He certainly has the self control to allow the wound to fester in private until the appropriate time to react comes.   He is patient and thoughtful and only strikes when it's the optimum time to do so.   But all of this - his patience, and his ability to judge people personally rather than if they're women or people of color - come from one of his differences.   He wasn't born rich.   He had to fight for what he got, and no expectations that others would bend to his will.   He knew that needling and threatening did more than publicly decrying people in a way that made him look worse than those he was attacking. 

 

It's why later in his life, Fisk will treat his wife, Vanessa, respectfully.   Not only would he not dare to objectify her, he wouldn't allow anyone else to do so without killing them.    Then again, he didn't just want a nice piece of ass; he fell in love with her for her brains, as well as her body.  

 

So this got weird.   Let's just say this does a fantastic job of mining our darker instincts without being so offensive I wanted to punch anyone.   Lovely.

Fierce Kingdom
Fierce Kingdom: A Novel - Gin Phillips

Joan and her four-year-old son have been playing in a secluded part of the zoo, but now they're cutting it close as the zoo is about to close for the day. As they hurry toward the exit Joan immediately turns around, Lincoln in her arms, and races back into the zoo. Those pops she heard earlier weren't balloons bursting or fireworks - they were gunshots and there is a man with a gun at the exit. Joan loves the zoo and it's her knowledge of this place - the hidden pathways and what exhibit is empty - that keeps them one step ahead of danger for the next three hours. She will do whatever it takes to protect her son.

With a cover like that and especially after reading the blurb I desperately wanted to read it right away. As an animal lover it pains me to read about fictional animals being hurt and killed and since this takes place in a zoo I figured it would happen. (I skimmed over those parts and I'm pretending they didn't happen!) But this book is so good! I couldn't help but fall in love with little Lincoln. His imagination and the love he has for his mother - their bond - it was something special. I was totally absorbed in this and if life didn't get in the way I would've read it in one sitting. It was very intense. Never a dull moment.

Thank you so much to Netgalley and Penguin Random House Canada for a copy of this book.

Guys always seem to think that Amy was dumb until she put them straight. But this time she would take it if it helped. Her bring down the man who was behind the murder of her dad. Amy reminded herself about one hundred times since Rex told her about one week ago about this job, this is a once in a lifetime a chance for payback. Until Amy  was thirteen she grew up around  tough bikers she thought they were a part of her extra family [ Silver Wolves M C ]. Since leaving school Amy had several part time job of waitressing during the day and tending bar at night and occasionally fast food. Aidan has owned Odin.s for five years and keeping the books up to date drives him nuts. Gage has a no screwing  the  staff rule for everyone. Gage  sees Amy and feels he has to fire her. Any girl that can get him hard just by  looking at her. Has to go. Amy had given a guy the eye and it turns out unfortunately it’s her new boss Gage was the son of the man- Axel Reynolds- who killed her dad. Rex told her the Viking Bastards - M C. are involved in large scale gun distributors and since Amy’s dad was put inside for handling illegal weapons for the wolves , it’s a trigger so all Amy needs is proof she can pass to Rex and he can let  his police contact Gage turns Amy on just by being near. Gage was everything I never wanted in a guy since she was thirteen. Gage and Amy end up in the apartment above the bar and she decided to kiss Gage and be alone with him. But Gage said it wasn’t more than just a kiss for him. Amy said it didn’t matter what she wanted. A kiss was all  he would get. Amy had been the daughter of the Silver Wolves Enforcer . Amy loved writing stories that crowds her head and fall in love with guys who’re never going to break her heart or crush her world. Gage’s older brother Zach said he had seen Rex Abbott hanging around outside Odin’s earlier that night. For ten years the Wolves and the Bastards had been allies Gage was fifteen when Rex’s father was President for the Silver Wolves and ordered Gage’s dad murdered while he was in prison. There was bad blood between Rex’s father and Gage’s family and Rex was crazy. Gage showed up at Mama’ Coco the diner where Amy worked. I was rooting for Amy and Gage. I loved the way their romance was built and I felt bad the way Gage handled  her being who she was. I just loved this story. I loved the ending.  I loved how Gage’s brother stood by him and Amy’s sister stood by her. This choked me up at times and made me chuckle at times. I loved the characters and all the ins and outs of this story. I highly recommend.

Blog Tour w/Review - Going In Deep

Going in Deep (Billionaire Bad Boys, Book 4)

by Carly Phillips

Date of Publication: May 9, 2017

 

 

Blurb:

 

He isn't Mr. Nice Guy…

 

Julian Dane thought he'd hit rock bottom — until he met a woman (isn't that what they all say?). He used her and broke her heart. Now he wants to turn things around but the damage he dealt stands in his way.

 

Kendall Parker's unique issues have made it hard to live a normal life. Very few people understand her and she trusts even less … but she believed in Julian once, and he only betrayed her.

 

Now Julian is back — a new man — and determined to win Kendall's heart. But this reformed bad boy just might find that Going in Deep is harder than it looks.

 

Billionaire Bad Boys: Rich, Powerful and Sexy as hell.

 

All Billionaire Bad Boys Novels stand alone!

Going in Deep (Billionaire Bad Boys, #4)Going in Deep by Carly Phillips
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is book #4, in the Billionaire Bad Boys series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading series books in order.

Julian is recovering from hitting the absolute bottom. He takes the steps to getting better seriously now. He is trying to make amends where he can.

Kendall has her own issues. While health is important, the heart wants what it wants. Can she go back to loving the man who makes her heart melt? Or was the past too much for the new her to handle?

These characters are obviously meant to be together. What is even better, they both have taken the time to get their own personal selves better. I think this story shows how important it is to take care of your own business before worrying about someone else. Then you are free to love as you like.
