Almost lost an eye to rolling it too hard
Turbulent Desires - Melody Anne

Fantasy filler with lack of substance and hero throws around "like a girl" to insult. He's an Air Force pilot but you would never know it because it apparently takes up so very little of his time. 
Heroine almost raped in beginning and then can only stand to be touched by hero who she had a one night stand with, sorry mom, dad, brothers, and bestfriend, you're not trustworthy like this guy. 
Manages to play ball with Seattle Mariners and ride with a NASCAR driver on the track, the things added in this story were so c'mon man. Hero wants heroine to chair his huge PTSD charity when she has absolutely no experience doing so, we get like one scene where it is dealt with and then the ball just happens. 
Fantasy stuff over solid emotion or truth. Fun for some, not for me.

Reading progress update: I've read 129 out of 320 pages.
Nonlinear Time Series Analysis - Thomas Schreiber,Holger Kantz

I while back I arrived at the "advanced topics" and sure enough things got a lot harder. There was one hilarious bit where the author spouts a horrendous mess of incomprehensible point-set topological jargon and then announces that was the version accessible to physicists, avoiding mathematical technicalities...

She’s Kicking Ass Again in Strong to the Bone by Jon Land @jondland
Strong to the Bone (Caitlin Strong Novels) - Jon Land

Buckle your seatbelts, because Strong to the Bone by Jon Land is one rootin tootin, smash bang novel of action and mystery that culminates in a rip roaring ending not to be missed.

 

Strong to the Bone (Caitlin Strong, #9)

MY REVIEW

 

I am so happy to be back into a rootin’ tootin’ Caitlin Strong adventure. The Texas Rangers and Nazis…doesn’t bode well for the Nazis. LOL

 

Right off, Jon Land does what he does so well, makes me so curious and surprised about our prisoner of war camps in Texas during World War II, that questions arise. Why have I never thought of this before? Was I never taught in school? Is is true? I know a lot of people don’t care one way or another about prologues, but this one sure did it’s job. Sent me straight to Google. I had to know more.

 

I can picture Caitlin on top of the fire truck, spraying the rioters with the fire hose like Al Capone sprayed his enemies with his tommy gun. A young woman is in distress, possibly being raped, and nothing will stop Caitlin from going to her rescue.

 

If you are not familiar with Caitlin, let me introduce you. She comes from a long line of Texas Rangers, but until she was raped in college, she had no plans to follow in their footsteps. Now…she’s a kickass, no holds barred force to be reckoned with. She goes in with guns blazing,  her fists and legs pumping, doling out justice.

 

I love that Jon Land is constantly challenging Caitlin in personal and professional ways.

She teams up with her sweetie, Cort Wesley. He’s an ex Green Beret, maybe a bit tarnished, but that will only serve him well when he meets up with Armand Fiskar. Armand is the son of the man who created the Aryan Nation, only he has more grandiose plans.

 

I am lovin’ Paz, an ex Venezuelan secret policeman, sent to kill Cort. Now they walk together. I love characters who have walked the wild side, yet are able to redeem themselves.

 

And neo Nazis…smacks of reality.

 

Cort, Paz, and even Caitlin, though she doesn’t acknowledge it, have a little bit of help from the paranormal.

 

Moments to laugh, moments of anger, smiles and frowns, humanity in all its glory and disgust.

 

Jon Land’s creative writing shows his humorous side, when he allows his characters to replace the Captain’s cigarettes with the candy kind. Do you remember eating them as a kid?

 

The Aryan Nation, neo nazis, bioterrorism, organ transplants, weapons of mass destruction…so many underlying plots culminate in a blown out ending. I am a lifelong fan and eagerly await each and every story Jon Land has to tell.

 

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of Strong to the Bone by Jon Land.
