iScream Book Blog - “I have such a weakness for damaged, broken, bad boys and his story really has me tied in knots.”
A Small Girl, Her Man, and her Books - “GAH! Just when i think i've figured out my favourite Lani Lynn Vale novel, she releases another book that makes me rethink the whole thing.”
Cat’s Guilty Pleasures - “It had just the right amount of heartache and heartwarming moments.”

 
Get out!
 
He yelled those words at the love of his life twelve years ago, and to this day, Reed Hail regrets them. He’s always been the type of person to speak before he thinks, and apologies have never come easy.
 
It’s been over a decade since she was his, and he stubbornly thinks that he can keep on living without her. 
 
He couldn’t be more wrong.
 
The last thing he needs is her vagina anywhere near his exam table. But nobody ever asks him what he wants.
 
Maybe he should’ve gone into the auto-recovery business after all.
 
I hate you.
 
Krisney Shaw would take those words back in a heartbeat if she could. In fact, she would take back everything.
 
Never meeting him would be the perfect place to start. The memory of Reed Hail haunts her—morning, noon, and night. Then, to add insult to injury, she has to see him being happy while she’s breaking a little more inside every single day.
 
Reed Hail is her worst nightmare because she’s constantly reminded of exactly what she’s missing—the other half of her soul.
 
Just when she thinks things can’t get worse, she’s sees his sexy, bearded face over the top of her paper gown, and she’s lost all over again.
 
Don’t ever let me go.
 
Both Reed and Krisney are determined to avoid each other. They do a great job of it, too…not.
 
One ill-timed gynecological exam changes everything. One single second in time shows Reed what he’s missing—literally and figuratively—and suddenly he’s back at square one.
 
The only problem with being back at square one? He won’t be able to leave her a second time.
 
Especially since the first time around he didn’t have a child with her to consider.


Reed and Krisney there story....

Another great tale by this amazing author.I have to say that I really don't read a lot of second chance romances like this one but, I really should as I liked seeing how old loves find there way back to one another.For me this was a really sad story that caused two people who where clearly soul-mates to separate due to someone else's actions who caused a family loss,pain and suffering.

I always pick a favorite character in a story that I am currently reading and mine this time around is going to be Krisney. Why you ask ?There where just so many things that I loved about her character.I found her to be smart,sassy,sexy,determined and some one loved with her whole heart.funny and someone who emotionally suffered much yet never left her broken just more determined and furiously independent.I loved how once she gave her heart to Reed there was no turning back for her he was her one true love and always would be.She tried to move on but, the heart wants what it wants and she chose to stay true to Reed even though they were apart and no future for one another.If Krisney was not  able to have the one she wanted she chose to go it alone and take comfort in her memories.This just proves that once you find your soul-mate there is truly no room for another in your heart foolish or not but, I found it quite endearing.

Reed Hail on the other hand I had mixed feelings about his character.Reed was the type of character that you love and dislike at the same time.I love how fiercely he loves Krisney in the now and always.Even though he loves her this much he continues to break her heart even after all these years.You understand why he felt the need to give her up in the first place but, as the story progresses we learn that he never truly gave her up just continued to love her behind the scenes yet refuses to create a life together now even after 12 years have passed.Reed was just a frustrating character that you just wanted to smack him upside of his head and tell him what a fool he was as so many never even have a taste of what he had with Krisney.It took almost losing the women he loved since high school and his family to see was right in front of him all along and now its too late....

I really enjoyed the story and its character especially when a couple love so fiercely and I loved being on Reed and Krisney's finding their way back to one another.The chemistry this couple had toward one another was fierce  and loving and hot as hell.When this couple were in a room together you felt the heat and sizzle.

My favorite scene who have to be Reeds confession of  his love for Krisney in the hospital and it somewhat redeemed himself in my eyes.

My final thoughts

I loved both characters from the onset and no matter what their obstacles were there was no doubt they belonged together and they were and always had been the perfect soul-mate for one another.They had me rooting for their happiness throughout the entire story hoping that the dreams that they once had would become a reality.Even though I enjoyed these characters at the same time I felt they were a bit disconnected .I am not sure this is the correct word but, this is why I feel that way.This story had a tragic event that caused this couple to split and come between them but ,It was Reed's words that sent her away .When fate brings them together again their first meeting is explosive and you clearly see that the love they once shared was still there.Even though Reed is back in Krisney's life he  still remains emotionally detached from her but not physically.He loves her still yet is still determined not to have a future with her,yet can't stay away and  it is clearly hurting Krisney in the process.When the time has finally runs out and its to late for them now he wants a future with her.My favorite scene is where I should have been crying up a storm but,I was not.This was the type of story that should have tugged at your heart strings in a big way and it did in some ways because you felt their loneliness and sadness they both experienced but, I never felt myself well up and cry or feel like crying and this story had more than one opportunity to make you do that.I guess what I am saying that I wished that the story had moved me to tears at some point throughout the story.This is just something I felt was missing for me that is all and that does not mean that it still wasn't a great story as I did enjoy it very much.

I loved that Dante made and appearance with Mary and that he is taking the steps to come out of the darkness and into the light again and perhaps we will get to here his story very soon.


Another enjoyable read and we are so enjoying this series and would recommend it and any other books by this author as all the ones we have read so far have been great reads.

And Oh! I love that Rafe still remains a mystery....

Routine. Just routine.

Yeah, right.

 

I knew this was going to be bad. I knew that I was about to do one of the stupidest things in the world.

 
Yet, that didn't stop me from entering the infirmary.
 
Every year we were required to see the doctor for an annual health evaluation. Mine was due two months ago, and I'd purposefully gotten out of it.
 
I'd tried to get out of this one, too. However, my superior looked at me, grinned that evil grin of hers, and told me in no uncertain terms if I didn't do it, I'd be relegated to desk duty for the foreseeable future.
 
She knew I hated desk duty.
 
Talking to people wasn’t my forte.
 
And now I was here.
 
Going into the one place that I knew I shouldn't be going.
 
The clinic in town was normally off limits.
 
The clinic near the base had an older than dirt male doctor that I was fairly sure was a pervert who kept working because he didn't get to see pussy that young anymore.
 
However, knowing that the old doc was off on the weekends, and Reed volunteered there for all the ladies that didn’t want to risk it with the pervert doc, led me to where I was today.
 
Where I knew he was.
 
Shit. Damn. Fuck.
 
I’d gone to Germany to get away from him. He’d been assigned to the same base within a month of my arrival.
 
It might’ve been a coincidence, but I knew it probably wasn’t.
 
He did it on purpose. Just to watch me squirm.
 
I swung open the glass door, waved at the secretary who I knew but whose name I couldn't remember, and signed in.
 
"He's running about thirty minutes behind," the secretary said as she took my information. "I'll tell the ladies that you're here, though. You can go on back. The nurse will put you in a room.”
 
Of course he was, because the motherfucker liked to talk.
 

Fucker.

 
Asshole.
 
I walked back, met the nurse, and she guided me into a room.
 
“Here’s the paper gown. You can go ahead and change here behind the screen.” The nurse smiled. “The part goes in the front.”
 
I refrained from flipping her off.
 
I knew which fucking part went in the front. I wasn’t a dumbass.
 
“Thanks,” I muttered.
 
I waited until she was completely out of the room before I changed, making sure the screen was completely covering every square inch of my body before I stripped my shirt off.
 
My pants went next, then my bra, and my underwear.
 
After slipping on the stupid gown—part in front—I folded the clothes precisely in on themselves, making sure that my underwear and bra were neatly tucked into my shirt before rolling my pants around the shirt.
 
I did not want him to see my underthings.
 
No sir-ree.
 
He was already going to see my breasts and vagina today. I didn’t want him to see that I wore the sexy underthings for some stupid reason.
 
Growling to myself, I picked up my phone and blasted off a text to my best friend.
 
She was probably asleep, but she’d answer when she woke up.
 
Somebody needed to be witness to this train wreck.
 
Might as well be Hennessy.

Fun!
Army of Darkness: Ongoing Vol. 1: Hail To the Queen, Baby! (Army of Darkness Vol. 3) - Elliott Serrano,Marat Mychaels,Dietrich Smith

This was more fun than some of the other volumes: with the addition of a competent, female version of Ash, it adds a twist.   It wasn't overly Ash - in the way he treats women, etc - so I didn't feel as grossed out when reading him in this. 

 

What I didn't like was how disjointed this felt.   I loved the art, I loved the story, I loved the humor, so really other than being frustrated at not seeing how the story fit together until far, far into this, I loved everything.   Disjointed knocks down one half star.

Evander Lennox doesn’t do anything he doesn’t want to do. At least, that is, until he’s sent to prison. The four years he’s incarcerated, he’s had no choice but to do the things that he’s asked to do, when he’s asked to do them. And now, if he doesn’t, it will mean a one-way ticket straight back to hell.
Once he’s free, it takes him twenty-four hours to get his old job back, his dog at home where he belongs, and an understanding that people aren’t as forgiving as he once thought them to be. He’s just about given up hope of ever integrating back into society when a woman slams into his heart, literally and figuratively.  *** Kennedy Swallow just wants to belong somewhere. When she was younger, her parents divorced, and chose to separate her from her twin. Fast forward fifteen years, and she’s finally getting to meet the family she’s always wanted to be a part of. To make that happen, she uproots her life and moves to the tiny town of Hostel, Texas—giving her almost everything she’s ever wanted. Just when she thinks she’s making progress in winning her family over, she finds out that her twin is ill, and the only reason her family tolerates her is due to the convenience of having a free caretaker whenever they might be in need of one. After a few eye-opening experiences, she quickly realizes that she’s being used. Vowing to herself that she’ll make the best of the situation, she begins to steel her heart. What she doesn’t prepare for is a man named Evander who sees that barrier as a challenge. *** It takes Evander all of ten seconds while watching the woman on the floor, bleeding from her jaw, to realize that maybe life isn’t as bad as it could be. This woman with her thrill for life, a crazy obsession with chickens, and a desire to be wanted, changes everything he thinks he knows. But it doesn’t take long for him to realize that just by being around her, the people of the town have judged her guilty by association. Her business suffers, and soon after, she realizes what it will mean to have him by her side—the loss of everything she’s worked so hard for. Kennedy knows that Evander is worth it. Evander, however, decides that he’s not letting another person get hurt because he was stupid enough to care.

Evander and Kennedy

Ms Vale does it again.I have to say that this is a fairly new author to me that I started reading this past year and we started with her MC series that we absolutely love and we enjoyed her current Romantic Suspense just as much.


We really loved the story from cover to cover.The story had so much going on that it just kept you turning the pages to the very end.This was just such a sweet romance read with a great cast of leading characters from the onset of the story and I have to say that I loved them both.


I love it when you connect with the characters that you read about and Kennedy and Evander made it very easy to do just that.I loved when that happens because when that happens I know I am going to love the story to come and I did just that.


I always pick a favorite character in the story I am currently reading and I have to say I was just a little bit in love with Evander so I picked him.

What an awesome guy he was sweet ,kind ,patient, protective,generous,sexy and an amazing caring lover.I loved his interactions with Kennedy they were super sweet and how they were together as a couple and their sex together was super hot.An alpha for sure but kept himself in check.My heart broke a little bit for all the betrayals he endured like him going to jail for a crime he did not commit and have a brother who took part in his downfall.My heart broke for him and the shitty family he had and how they treated him yet he never gave up on them even knowing he should have.

Kennedy was a lover,spitfire,one who defies convention,sweet ,kind and and all around super sweet gal.My heart broke for her as well as her family treated her horrible to and I think for that reason it was easy to form a bond with Evander as they already has so much in common.


My favorite scenes in the story for me were the scene in the grocery store and her digging that  hole in her backyard.One scene showed just how protective she was of her man and how she had know problem standing up for the man she loved and the other was just showed you how much she loved him and the lengths she went to in order to lessen the pain he was feeling.


A great read with tons of twists and turns and betrayals but , also about how an unlikely pair of lovers who found solace in one another and one who was willing to see into the heart of her man and believe him when others thought him to be nothing but a criminal and ex con.When Kennedy sat down in that diner across from Evander even after he warned her away saying he was a bad bet had me cheering and saying go girl ! This sweet and quiet girl had fire in her!What a surprise and I liked it !


A recommended read to all!


5 stars from us

"Operation Hail Storm", by Brett Arquette
Operation Hail Storm - Classroom Edition - Brett Arquette

Book #1, in the Hail series

If you are a die-hard fan of thrillers that uses detailed technology of drones and military equipment to intricately detail a plot you will find all you wish for with “Operation Hail Storm” and much more. This captivating story has multi-billionaire Marshall Hail, the main character, using his vast resources to fight a personal vendetta after losing his family in a terrorist attack.

Although well done, this thriller has a level of technology details all through that is quite overwhelming, maybe it is a bit too technically challenging and rather overly done at least in my books. Once passed all those terms we are into a cleverly laid and executed plot with characters we come to know in minutia details. Alongside Hail is Kara a deadly CIA operative who plays the female lead. The drones in Hail fleet are piloted by elite video gamers and MIT graduates we meet some of them in their unique roles. This interesting high-tech story includes super tankers with cinemas, high class restaurants and all the goodies found in upper class hotels, not forgetting all the fire power found on naval ships and plus. The experience may be over the top but is quite exciting to read.

This thought-provoking thriller that uses drones as a way of assassination may have a slow start but the originality and the constant alternate action between Hail’s ship, what happens between US Security Council and Hail (the USA Executive’s problem- solver) and what happens in North Korea make for a very captivating read hard to put down. Yes, the pacing does pick up and becomes fast and furious…or was I so much into this story that I couldn’t help swiping pages at a rapid pace to see what would happen next. Excellent story.

I wish to thank the author for providing a review copy of his book.
