HA HA What a unique and funny read!
Drifting in the Push - Daniel Garrison

There is a ton of action, adventure, and humor packed into this book. I don't even know where to begin reviewing it, so I'll just say if you want to read something a bit off the beaten path, give this book a try. Two thumbs up!

Push and Pull
Push and Pull - Emily Cyr Push and Pull - Emily Cyr Wow what a book. The book involves, drugs, vampires and a humans with super powers called Pushers.
Addison is a drug addicted pusher. Her super power is super speed. She is in deep with her dealer at the beginning of the book. A vampire named Canon in a way buys her from her dealer in exchange for not only cleaning herself up but she also owes him 3 favors. He will not tell her what the favors are or when he will collect. So basically she is at his beck and call until he is ready to cash in.
Addison does clean herself up and gets straight. Seven years later still owing Cannon she gets a call, not on the phone but mentally. She rushes to him to be told he was collecting on one of the favors.
He turns her over to his brother Lachlan, who is also a vampire and also in debt to Cannon. The favor is to help clear the streets or a deadly drug to other Pushers. This is when the book takes flight.
I really enjoyed this book. Hated the ending only because I do not have the 2nd book laying here ready to pick up. The last couple of sentences in the book is basically the beginning of book 2.
I really enjoyed the way Emily Cry trapped me into the story. The characters were all well defined. There was not an over abundance of description. There was just enough to let your minds eye have a picnic on what was going on around the characters. There is also just a touch of romance, and 1 sex scene.
I cannot wait for book 2.

Cover Reveal
 
Title: Synister: The Push Series, Book 1
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 2, 2016
 
 
 
As I took the steps to the stage I soaked in the moment, allowing the feeling and emotion to fill the void.  I knew their love for me was only temporary, but it was enough.  Enough to keep me going forward, and enough to sate any desire for permanency.  This was my reality, all I was capable of feeling.  A brief encounter with a sea of nameless faces,  the anonymity kept them from seeing me for who I really was at my core.  To them I was Synister Smith, and god damn it they loved me.

Push Review
Push - Sapphire

I'm a big fan of books written in vernacular if the voice rings true and the book is short. Luckily, this book does not overstay its welcome. If you ignore the final essays at the end, Push is all of 150 pages long. Your average reader could mow through its text in a single sitting. But I will warn you, if you're a self-proclaimed Grammar Nazi, your head could possibly explode. Rest assured, though, all errors and broken syntax is on purpose.

Push (or the movie tie-in title Precious), by Sapphire, is an emotionally-charged look at a sexually-abused girl and her struggle to become literate and do better for her and her children. The book is written from this molested teenager's point of view, so you will experience her growth both in the areas of reading and maturation. The novel is equally funny and heart-wrenchingly bleak. But it is the honesty of the voice that struck me the hardest. This is not a biography. These things did not actually happen. But it feels like the relaying of true events.

Not often am I disgusted to the point of wanting to put a book down, but this book caused me to lay it aside several times. Even so, I managed to read it in a 24-hour period. Herein you will experience the most vile human behavior told in the simplest language. Poor Precious cannot win. But her struggle is fascinating. And the best part is, even at rock bottom, she finds hope.

In summation: A truly touching novel. Reading this is like witnessing the metamorphosis of a caterpillar into butterfly. Highly recommended with the caveat that this novel is sometimes hard to read due to both content and intended spelling and grammatical errors.

Final Judgment: A master class in human evil.
