review SPOILER ALERT! 2018-09-23 16:35
Lee Adams and Faith on the run
Saving Faith - David Baldacci

Faith is a side-kick for a powerful lobbyist Danny that was in some serious deals. 

 

Faith tried to make a deal with the FBI only to have the FBI threaten jail time and wants her to give up Danny.

 

When all this is going on, the bad guy is trying to kill Faith and framed Danny. 

 

All this is going well for the bad guy until the private investigator Lee Adams stepped in. Lee was paid by Danny to tail Faith. Lee thought it was a case of catching some unfaithful spouse only to find a sniper fired and klled the FBI Ken when he and Faith walked toward the safe house. 

 

Now Faith and Lee were on the run. Faith didn't trust Lee and she wanted to get away from him. While doing that, alerted the bad guys and almost got them killed. 

 

This is when the story starting to pick up. The first part is a bit standard. How these two person being thrown together going to interact with each other always make pretty good story. Now, this is not the typical romance stuff. There is something more, an almost sexual assault. And called it as that. I like character who was that wrong knew about it without much sugar coating it. 

 

The story moved fast and it is pretty good from then on. 

 

Reading this for Amateur Sleuth square

Reading progress update: I've read 209 out of 449 pages.
Saving Faith - David Baldacci

Faith is the side-kick of a real powerful lobbyist David. 

 

Now David is going down and someone who wanted to silence David trying to take out Faith to frame him. 

 

 

All well, until Faith was saved by Lee Adams, a private investigator who was hired to tail Faith.

 

Faith is not really likable. Probably why this is not going as well as it should be. 

 

while I was thinking what going on and why Faith is not acting more human and reacting normally when she and Lee is on the run, something else happened. 

 

Lee got drunk and almost sexual assaulted Faith. It is a delicate matter and seems it is handled well. Lee has an internal dialogue and he knew he wanted to be stopped by Faith. When Faith didn't stop him from getting into her bed. He stopped himself and ran out. He knew he couldn't do it.  

 

I have read some real horrible women written romance that handled similar scene without correctly labeling it as sexual assault. That's why I stayed away from romance as a rule as this forcefulness was misinterpreted by women writers no less.

 

Things are not that interesting even when they are on the run because they were almost caught when Faith made a mistake in trying to ditch Lee.

Saving Amy by Rose Verde
Saving Amy - Rose Verde

 

 

Looking toward the future means confronting the pain of the past. Amy is learning about the people she left behind and the heartache that she never wanted to endure. Saving Amy is a new beginning for a woman who doesn't quite know how to be happy. Verde takes up residence in your head in order to get in touch with your heart. Amy is at a loss when it comes to facing her emotions. Maybe Nevada can help her find the strength to risk her heart. Emotion at it's highest is storytelling at it's finest.

Saving Sarah (The Gold Coast Retrievers Book 1) by Melissa Storm
Saving Sarah - Melissa Storm

 

 

Life is an ever changing classroom that we never outgrow. The lesson plans may change, but our thirst for knowledge remains the same. Saving Sarah is a reminder that the quest for knowledge can be brutally honest, heartrendingly painful, but still remain fulfilling in the most surprising of ways. Through the eyes of one woman's courage, Storm takes readers on a unpredictable ride of half -truths, hidden secrets and long overdue answers. Sarah falls into a mystery and emerges better for it.

Release Week Review! Saving the King (A King’s Tale #1) Leilani Love!
Saving the King - Leilani Love

 

 

The fate of Camelot rest on Katrina being able to save the newborn Prince Arthur. 

Katrina would do anything for her long-time friend and Queen, so when the newborn Prince is thrust into her arms she promises to protect him as she is rushed with Arthur to Merlin’s. When Morgana’s Demon Army attacks her carriage, Katrina is outnumbered and outmatched as she finds herself surrounded with nowhere to run. 

 

On his way home Bryan stumbled upon a turned carriage. His wolves take off following after the trail of what looks to be a small army of men. When he sees a giant painted man about to kill a small woman he rushes to help without thinking about the consequences. 

 

Riding his horse as fast as he dares, the woman in his arms lips are blue from the cold, the baby cries getting softer Bryan feels his panic rising. Who is she and how did she come to be traveling along with a baby that wasn’t hers? Will he be able to figure out before those men come back to try and finish the job? 

A fantasy King Arthur retelling.

 


A King’s Tale is off to a fascinating start with Saving the King! The characters are strong, captivating and easily draw readers along on their thrilling adventure. Bryan and Katrina’s romance is full of excitement and emotional turmoil while they strive to protect each other and the prince. The story is fast paced and full of exciting and adrenaline pumping thrills as Morgana sets her henchmen after the prince and there is surprising twists.

 

I was completely caught up in Leilani Love’s new book, she brought it to vivid life and painted vibrant images that made it easy for me to picture each and every scene and I love the way she is bring one my favorite character’s (King Arthur) world to life but there is definitely a cliffhanger and it’s way too short so be prepared to have to anxiously await the next book to find out what happens but so far this A King’s Tale is an adventure worth joining.
