HE is a Stalker and he is Waiting for Wren by Cate Beauman @CateBeauman
Waiting For Wren - Cate Beauman

Oh yeah, I am back for more Cate Beauman in Waiting for Wren. I am so loving these ladies that come to Ethan Security for protection and eagerly anticipateeach new story I receive. A million thanks to you, Cate Beauman.

 

Each book will stand alone, and if you are into Romantic Suspense, this is a series you will want on your reading list.

 

I love the covers for the series. The subject matter pertains to the stories and the colors are so bright and vivid, I know I would never be able to pass by them on a bookshelf.

 

Cover: Streetlight Graphics

 

Waiting For Wren (The Bodyguards Of L.A. County, #5)

Goodreads  /  Amazon US  /  Amazon UK Amazon CA

 

MY REVIEW

 

As soon as Tucker heard the rustles in the woods, I knew what was coming and I am so POed. The mystery has begun and I wonder where Ethan Security comes in.

 

Right from the getgo, we have plenty of danger, sexual  tension, and verbal foreplay. My anticipation is at a foot tapping, sitting on the edge of my seat level.

 

Wren is independent. No wonder, her parents might as well have been nonexistent for the attention they paid her. She wasn’t used to being afraid, having a babysitter, and she could do a lot worse than Tucker.

 

Wren only has one suspect, but I have several. I think I’ve figured it out and if I have, he is truly evil, watching and reveling in her suffering. I wonder if he steps away and laughs. At least Tucker and Ethan, her brother, have not ruled out anyone, but I don’t think they see him…or do they?

 

Lots of stuff going on and it is torture as I wait for HIM to make his move on her and Wren to let Tucker in.

 

HE is jealous, determined, on the attack. I hope she doesn’t do the usual and go off without Tucker. She does get the hell out of Dodge, but it is with Tucker, as he takes her to the only safe place he can think of, Park City and the bad memories from his past.

 

“At some point during the drive from Salt Lake City, Rico Suave  vanished and, Broody Bummer Man appeared. She wanted Rico back.”

 

It’s Cate Beauman’s writing that keeps me coming back for more. I love some humor with my suspense…and romance. We all know it’s coming, but…so far…it’s hands off for both of them, though the dance has begun. How long can she hold out, because one move from her and he’ll be putty in her hands. She can deny the pull as much as she wants, but I know it will win out.

 

Tucker has his own problems…I love multiple plots and wonder…are they related? Will they come together in the end? Will the mystery that’s haunted Tucker finally be solved and Wren set  free at the same time? When’s it coming? I’m waiting…

 

I love that Cate Beauman makes me wait…Dragging out the suspense on every page. I think doom is coming. This ominous feeling hangs on every word, on every page and I am at 50%, on pins and needles…I can only imagine what evil Cate is bringing my way.

 

I loved when Wren finally ‘manned up’ and told Laura off. I could picture Wren stomping around the room, cussing her out in Italian…Is she a spitfire or a fireball?

 

It’s too soon to make life changing plans. Wren needs to stay in Limbo, for now, and I didn’t like this part at 52%.

 

HE’s getting more and more angry. Stalking is no longer enough. It is time to up the ante.

 

I do hate, that at 77%, Wren is still running from Tucker, but that is the nature of the romantic suspense beast. Gotta keep that sense of anticipation and fear for the characters at a high level, and Cate Beauman does that in a superb fashion.

 

I wonder what she has on the table for me next. *rubbing my hands together in eager anticipation* 

 

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Waiting For Wren by Cate Beauman.

[REVIEW] Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh
Hyperbole and a Half: Unfortunate Situations, Flawed Coping Mechanisms, Mayhem, and Other Things That Happened - Allie Brosh

Read this in a day while rebelling against my mountain of schoolwork.

I must be the exception to the rule because I did not find this funny at all. Half the time I was jarred by the lack of connection between the chapters and then I remembered this was a blog so it's not supposed to have a thread, maddening as it was. The other half of the time I was bored.

Nonetheless, I found myself relating to certain things she described particularly concerning depression. The artwork is very amusing and the parts with the dogs were my favorite.

The Winner Stands Alone - Paulo Coelho

Yes, fame isnt everything and no,the winner does not stand alone.The winner stands alone is completely phenominal novel which describes everything about life .it focuses on the world of superclass.exhilarating and titillating.it successfully describes the never ending desire of mankind and its greed of desire and fame.I loved the way in which the author describes the story of each and every character minutely and even involves the reader .I felt it was an intresting book for young adults.

A 3 ★rating book

Review: "Why the Star Stands Still" (Gives Light, #4) by Rose Christo
Why the Star Stands Still - Rose Christo

"So this is what it feels like to be a father. To be responsible for another human life. To love someone so much, you almost can't stand it; and when you think about it, there's nothing you want in return.

It feels amazing."

 

This book was basically a big epilogue for the first 3 books in the series. It is set 15 (!) years after the last volume, with the former late teens Skylar and Rafael now being two adults in their early 30s. They're happily married, Skylar got his voice back and is finally able to talk (like Rafael promised him he would), and now they're trying to adopt a foster kid. All's well that ends well. Yay!

 

 

Fun fact #724 about me: I don't really like kids in my books. More often than not, they unbalance the relationship of the MCs and everything starts revolving around them, while the romance takes a backseat.

 

 

Thankfully, that was not the case here. I liked bratty little Michaela well enough that she didn't ruin Skylar and Rafael's relationship for me. Phew! Close call.

 

 

However, I did have an issue with this book. A HUGE one.

 

 

Like I said, the story takes place 15 years after the third book. And a lot has happened during that time. Things that are only mentioned in passing or as a footnote.

 

 

LIKE SKYLAR AND RAFAEL GETTING MARRIED.

 

LIKE SKYLAR, WHO HAS BEEN MUTE FOR THE ENTIRE SERIES, GETTING HIS VOICE BACK THANKS TO RAFAEL.

 

LIKE SKYLAR'S GRANDMOTHER PASSING AWAY.

(spoiler show)

 

 

ARGH!

 

 

Not gonna lie, this was more than a little disappointing and frustrating.

 

Because there was so much left to love here. It was really nice and touching to see Skylar and Rafael and all their friends as adults. And to see that their love has stayed so strong over the years was nothing but sweet and satisfying. And I liked both main storylines with Michaela/Mickey and Skylar's father.

 

But I can't help but feel like I missed some of the most important bits of Sky and Rafael's life, and that leaves a bittersweet aftertaste in my mouth.

 

 

Thankfully, I also can't help but give this book another 4.5-star rating. Because the writing was STILL so goddamn excellent, and all characters were STILL so completely and utterly lovable. Damn you, Rose Christo, for being so goddamn talented and for giving me all the feelz. How could I ever be mad at you?

 

PS: That twist at 91%? Shocking and awesome AF! I never saw it coming.

Reading progress update: I've read 52%.
Why the Star Stands Still - Rose Christo

"I rested my head on his shoulder and he carded his fingers through my hair. I wish I could put into words how good that felt. Sometimes I just wanted to meld into him and forget about the part of me that wasn't a part of him. God, it felt good to be a part of him. It felt like everything made sense for a moment, even the harshness of life, even the insanity. It felt like my heart had found its second heartbeat. Everyone has a second heartbeat, you know. Ask any Shoshone. They say that the living earth has a pulse of its own, and if you listen very closely, you can hear it echoing in your heart. But I say: Well, I have no room for the earth's pulse. I'd rather have Rafael's."
