One Less Problem Without You
One Less Problem Without You: A Novel - Orlagh Cassidy,Beth Harbison
I Picked Up This Book Because: I love Beth Harbison’s writing.


The Characters:

Chelsea: Up and coming actress
Diana Tiesman: Wife of Leif Tiesman who has had enough
Prinny Tiesman: Half sister of Leif Tiesman (IDK why the book constantly calls her a step sister they have the same father)

The Story:

These three women have exactly one thing in common, Leif Tiesman, the asshole who is trying to systematically ruin their lives. They ban together and don’t let him. That’s all I can say without revealing too much of the story. It is not overt and it is not a full fledged march for women’s rights but they get it. They go through a lot but they get it.

The Random Thoughts:

Every Night Without You: Book 2, Caine & Addison
Every Night Without You: Book 2, Caine & Addison - Violet Duke Before That Night got the ball rolling with the complicated romance of Addison and Caine. Every Night Without You picks up after that night, seven years later. Ms. Duke made some surprising reveals and gave some heartbreaking answers to the questions left unanswered in Before That Night. This time around I felt more focus being put on the mysterious stalker than the romantic liaison. With all the baggage shoveled her way, it was nice to see Addison finally get the closure and happy ending she so richly deserved.

Seven years. Seven damn years of wondering whether the woman was still alive...whether she'd spent the last two thousand five hundred fifty-five days wondering if he was still alive. Wondering whether that night was as burned into her memory as it was his. Seven years having his heart tethered to Addison―and now she's back. With even more reasons to run than she'd had then. Only this time, Caine isn't letting the gorgeous little flight risk out of his sight. Regardless of how noble her reasons may be. “Violet Duke is my go-to read when I just want to immerse myself in a captivating romance.” – NYT bestselling author J.S. Cooper EVERY NIGHT WITHOUT YOU (Bk 2 of 2) takes place seven years after BEFORE THAT NIGHT (Bk 1 of 2), and is the conclusion of Caine & Addison's story of love, sacrifice, and the lengths one will run―and chase―when their past threatens their future.    
Excerpt
Copyright (c) 2017 Violet Duke
“Stop reading my mind,” she whispered. “No.” The softly growled word was the only warning she got before his arms snaked around her waist and pulled her to him. “There hasn’t been a single night since you left that I haven’t thought about the way you felt in my arms the first time I’d slept longer than a few hours in years.” She gasped. His eyes flared. “That right there—that’s why I’m never going to stop reading your thoughts, baby. No matter how well Alec taught you to hide, knowing that even now, after all this time, you still can’t hide all your feelings from me completely? That’s the one thing that’ll help me sleep tonight. It still won’t be for longer than an hour or two, but at least in that short time, I’ll have something to hold onto again.” Tidal waves of emotion slammed into her, one after another, crashing through every last barrier she’d built around herself, stripping away every protective layer she’d hid behind for the last seven years. Until all that was left was her. A low, harsh sound broke free from Caine. Feelings and thoughts, fears and hopes—she bared it all to him. For so long, she’d kept everything from everyone, herself included. Now, disarmed and defenseless, anyone with eyes could plainly see the one unmistakably distinguishable part of her that she’d had to work the hardest to hide. Her heart. Which was still irrevocably tethered to the man standing before her. “Go inside, Addison. Right now. While I’m still able to let you.” Every cell in her body rebelled against the command. “Please, honey. Don’t do that. Don’t flash that look at me. That stubborn rebel-in-stilettos sass will have you under me in your bed in two seconds flat.” He groaned at whatever her eyes were telling him next. To be fair, he started it with that panty-melting threat. “Baby, you’re killing me.” Right back at you. He pushed open the door the rest of the way for her, one hand holding the top of the frame as if physically stopping himself from doing anything else. For a while, the internal battles they each faced with themselves kept them both cemented where they stood. But eventually, the growing torment and tension racking his entire frame made her back up a single step and clear the doorway. “Lock the deadbolt.” These overprotective demands just shouldn’t be this sexy. She shut the door and laid her palm against it. Knowing he was still out there, she confessed quietly to the wooden barricade between them, “That memory stayed with me, too. Even now, the only way I’m able to eventually fall asleep is to imagine your arms around me. Holding me. Keeping me safe.” Loving me. It was a full minute before she finally heard his heavy tactical boots walk away.

A World Without You
A World Without You - Beth Revis

What do I say about this novel? It was entertaining, it was confusing, it was adventurous, and it stretched my boundaries. The book is about mental illness and it has many different points of view. We view the story mainly from Bo’s point of view. At the beginning of the novel, I was entertaining the idea of Bo and the other characters living at Berkshire Academy, managing their special abilities. They each were special, some were dealing with their talents better than others but the whole idea of the Academy was to help the students comprehend and realize who they really were. Some of their teachers even had special abilities which came in handy in some situations.

 

Ryan, he was the deep one in the group. His thoughts and comments made me think and I didn’t trust him. He put too much thought into what he said and I thought he was only thinking of himself and was playing everyone else against each other. Harold, he was special. He kept to himself and it looked like he was talking to himself but Bo believed that his special ability was that he saw ghosts.  I wanted people to leave him alone but some people couldn’t and they pushed him to open up or they taunted him until he crept away. Bo was stressed about Sofia, for he liked her and he felt guilty about what he did. He was consumed about the Timestream and he started plucking the strings along it. Bo’s believed his special talent was time travel and somehow he has taken Sofia back in time and accidentally left her there.   He didn’t know exactly where but he needed to locate her and bring her back. Sofia had died so the Academy has a funeral for her but Bo is set on the notion that he has put her in the past and he can rescue her, if he is just given the time to do so.  Government officials have now arrived on site to investigate the Academy and everything in Bo’s world begins to fall apart.   All the stories that he fabricated in his head are now changing. The confusion shook Bo and I wasn’t ready for the confusion and the change that affected him.   I was inside Bo’s world, he was important and he was calm there. When this change swept over the novel, it shows the effect that mental illness has on an individual and others around them.

Who is messed up?
A World Without You - Beth Revis

I'm confused, Bo's confused and I can't read fast enough to ease my head.  Did Bo really take Sofia to the past and accidently leave her there or is all this a mind game?  Why did the "governmental officials" have to show up and mess with my comfortable read?  I was fine with their superpower abilities but no, they showed up and started shaking things up and now....its chaos!  I'm questioning everything I've read from the beginning, someone please start putting the answers together and quit adding more confusion.
