Grinder (Seattle Sharks Book 1) - Samantha Whiskey

Bailey has known Gage pretty much her whole life.  Their mothers are best friends.  It seemed inevitable they would become close as well.  He does not seem to know that she is seriously attracted to him.  The problem is she knows he is a player.

 

Gage has a hard time trusting anyone close.  His past has held a lot of pain.  A life that he does not want his daughter to have to have.  He is choosing who to trust and keep close.  Who he allows around his child.  

 

Very endearing story with some sports thrown in.  I loved these characters and hope to see them again in upcoming books in the Seattle Sharks series.  There was sexy times, silly times, and more.  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Enforcer (Seattle Sharks #2) by Samantha Whiskey
Enforcer (Seattle Sharks Book 2) - Samantha Whiskey

Seattle Sharks Enforcer, Rory Jackson, strikes a deal with future CEO, Paige Turner.  They enter an exclusive three-month relationship to help clean up his reputation, while she checks off some items on her dirty-girl bucket list.  This contemporary sports romance is suitable for adult audiences.

 

ENFORCER is a fun and entertaining story.  The plot was interesting and expertly laid out.  The characters are very different from one another but compatible.  I love that they both were interested in the other, but that it took this deal for them to do something about getting together. 

 

I like Rory. He is a bad-boy hockey player.  He had a difficult childhood that contributed to his bad temper that is always getting him in trouble. Despite being one of the best hockey players in the league he feels he is unworthy of Paige.  I love that he treats her differently than every other woman he has been with.

 

Paige is a noble heroine.  She truly cares about the well-being of others, contribution to charitable efforts.  She is smart and innovating.  She has a big heart.  I appreciate that she stands up to her father.

 

Rory and Paige have some interesting conflicts to overcome in this story.  Since they are both high profile individuals, they need to worry about media attention.  They both grow and evolve into better people. They bring the best out in each other. 

 

ENFORCER was skillfully written and felt well concluded.  This is the first novel that I have read by  Samantha Whiskey.  I plan on backtracking and reading book one in the series, GRINDER.  I liked Gage and Baily in this book, so I’m interested in reading their story.  I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

For the shark lovers in your life
Everything Is Teeth - Joe Sumner,Evie Wyld

Thanks to a newly discovered YouTuber, Mercedes, I was made aware of what promised to be a very beautiful and interesting graphic novel by the name of Everything Is Teeth. Written by Evie Wyld and illustrated by Joe Sumner, this is the story of Evie's childhood obsession with sharks. It was the artwork that drew me in. Both cartoonish and realistic, the characters (most especially the sharks) seem to come to life with every turn of the page. The story follows her as she travels with her family to Australia to visit relatives and there her fascination with sharks truly blossoms. It's a rather surreal portrayal of a little girl who seems to live in a world which is invisible to all others. As she walks down the sidewalk to school what follows along in her wake? A shark. As she lounges on the couch why must she keep her legs from touching the floor? A shark. It's bizarre and at times slightly disjointed. I'm still not entirely sure I understood her relationship with her family or what exactly was going on with her brother. Maybe that's the point? I'd say this book is worth looking into for the artwork (not the cartoonish bits which I didn't really like as much) alone. However, I must caution that there are some rather gory bits if that's not your cup of tea.

If this was Shark Week I'd be super relevant
The Fin: Fate, is only waist deep... - Adam Horeth,Konrad Miekina,Matthew Danza

The following book was kindly sent to me by the author, Matthew Danza, who requested a review.

 

I'm going to come right out and say that I didn't care for The Fin. I can see why some people would enjoy it but this just wasn't the book for me. There's a lot of teenage angst combined with gore which sounds like a good time but I felt like it didn't really go anywhere. The story follows Lee, an annoying and obnoxious teenager, living on a small island with her twin brother James and her father. (There's a secondary storyline about her estrangement with her mother which was awkwardly included but ultimately went nowhere.) Her good friend (who obviously likes her and who she likes back) is named Adam and he rounds out the main cast of characters. Based on the title of this book and the cover art, it's obvious that this is a story about a shark attack. Firstly, I felt the storyline was excruciatingly slow especially for a novella. Also, totally predictable. (And I think the author was going for a Jaws homage but it felt super forced and corny to me.) The only good thing about this book was that it was mercifully short. I think that the author was trying to do too much for the length of a novella. This was a 1/10 for me.

Grinder (Seattle Sharks Book 1) Samantha Whiskey 99 cents
Grinder (Seattle Sharks Book 1) - Samantha Whiskey

Gage McPherson was the Seattle Shark’s best Grinder, until he shattered his shoulder last season. Time heals all wounds...but the heartbroken single dad has more than his share of trust issues. The playboy only lets one girl close to his iced-over heart—his pint-sized daughter who’s the center of his world. She’s the only thing more important to him than hockey, and he trusts no one with her...except me.

We’ve been friends since we were kids, and I love his daughter like she’s my own, so what’s the easiest solution to help Gage out? Move in and be his live-in nanny for the season. As far as she goes, the arrangement is perfect. But her drop-dead-sexy father? Frustrating on every possible level.

There is a thick, professional line drawn between us by his own hand, and despite understanding the terms, my body is practically begging him to cross it. Our chemistry is off the charts, but one misstep, and we could hurt the one person we love most. This game is all-or-nothing. Can I risk my heart on a guy who is known for the shut-out, on and off the ice?
