Last Marine Standing (Heroes #2) by R.J. Scott
Last Marine Standing - R.J. Scott

Last Marine Standing starts off 10 years ago, when Samuel Larson was a young fourteen, being rescued from a horrific event. Fast forward, and you find out that Samuel Larson is none other than Aiden's friend, Sam. And he is about to go walkabout to find the four marines who saved him so many years ago. What he finds is more than he bargained for, with two of them dead, and the other two being hunted down. Sam finds himself in the thick of it all, with no real idea of what's going on, because Mac can't talk about it without being classified as a traitor to his country.

 

This is a fast-paced story that can be read as a standalone. Viktor and Aiden make an appearance or two, but nothing that would interrupt the enjoyment of this book. Personally, I loved it when they made an appearance, as it always satisfies to see 'what happens next'!

 

Sam and Mac have the attraction there, but circumstances as such prevent anything apart from hot and heavy going on. Still, you can always make time

BLOG TOUR, REVIEW, & #GIVEAWAY - Standing Ground (Under Ground #2) by Alice Rachel
Standing Ground - Alice Rachel
Standing Ground is the second book in the Under Ground series by Alice Rachel, and starts where book one left off. There is a 'catch up' at the start of the book, so you settle into the story very quickly. Chi and Thia are still with The Underground, only now Thia's mother is with them too. They are both suffering from PTSD following the events of the previous book, and I love how that was portrayed. Both of them are there for each other, without crowding them. 
 
This book is absolutely packed full of emotions - love, heartbreak, sorrow, more betrayal than you can shake a stick at, and coming from directions you weren't even aware of until the author fills you in! The secrets keep on coming to light, and all characters are shaken with their new knowledge.
 
Standing Ground is exceptionally well written, with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt the reading flow. The pace is smooth, building to a dramatic climax, with cliffhanger ending. I enjoyed book 1, but I have LOVED book 2, and I can't wait to continue with this series.
 
* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and my comments here are my honest opinion. *

Standing Up To the Madness: Ordinary Heroes In Extraordinary Times
Standing Up To the Madness: Ordinary Heroes In Extraordinary Times - Amy Goodman,David Goodman Q:
It is business as usual in our one-party state.
(c)
Q:
In 1942, a group of students and their professor at the University of Munich in Germany responded to the tyranny and oppression of the Nazi regime by secretly publishing and distributing a series of six leaflets. This nonviolent resistance group called itself the White Rose. Its leaders included Hans and Sophie Scholl, a brother and sister who were devout Christians, and philosophy professor Kurt Huber. The students typed the leaflets, ran off copies, and secretly sent them by courier to cities around Nazi Germany to be left in public places. They wanted to ensure that Germans could never say that they didn’t know what was happening in their name. And they hoped to inspire their fellow citizens to rise up and actively oppose the Nazi regime.
Hans and Sophie Scholl and Kurt Huber were caught by the Gestapo while distributing their sixth leaflet. They were tried for political crimes in the Volksgerichtshof, the so-called People’s Court, and beheaded. Today, numerous buildings and streets in Germany are named for the Scholls and Huber. Polls show that they are considered to be among the most admired people in all of German history.
As their fourth leaflet implored:We will not be silent. We are your guilty conscience. The White Rose will not leave you in peace!
(c)
Q:
is up. You gotta go,” he said. “You can’t be in here protesting.” The silver-haired vet was baffled. Then the officer pointed to the problem: Ferner’s black T-shirt said “Veterans For Peace.” It featured a picture of a dove carrying an olive branch, the logo of the national peace group.This could mean only one thing: The aging seaman was a threat to national security.Ferner tried to convince Adkins to go back to his duties “guarding against serious terrorists.”The officer flipped open his badge and said, “No, not with that shirt. You’re protesting and you have to go.” Ferner facetiously suggested the cop arrest him for his T-shirt. Within seconds, the veteran was wearing handcuffs and heading to jail. The charges: disorderly conduct, a weapons charge (Ferner was carrying a small Swiss Army knife), and criminal trespassing. He was fined $275.“I’m sure I could go back to Officer Adkins’s fiefdom with a shirt that said, ‘Nuke all the hajjis,’ or ‘Show us your tits,’ or any number of truly obscene things and no one would care.“I have to believe that this whole country has not yet gone insane, just the government,” said this veteran for peace. “This kind of behavior can’t be tolerated. It must be challenged.”

About Jamie Begley

“I was born in a small town in Kentucky. My family began poor, but worked their way to owning a restaurant. My mother was one of the best cooks I have ever known, and she instilled in all her children the value of hard work, and education. Taking after my mother, I’ve always love to cook, and became pretty good if I do say so myself. I love to experiment and my unfortunate family has suffered through many. They now have learned to steer clear of those dishes. I absolutely love the holidays and my family puts up with my zany decorations. For now, my days are spent writing, writing, and writing. I have two children who both graduated this year from college. My daughter does my book covers, and my son just tries not to blush when someone asks him about my books. Currently I am writing five series of books- The Last Riders, The VIP Room, Predators MC, Biker Bitches, and The Dark Souls. All my books are written for one purpose- the enjoyment others find in them, and the expectations of my fans that inspire me to give it my best.”
