Good afternoon everyone and welcome. Today I have a special treat for you that I know you’re going to like. I am presenting my review for Annette Mori’s ‘The Termination.’ This is a thriller romance that takes place in today’s world. The two main characters, Codee and Sawyer, take part in this adventurous story.
Codee, a hospital HR executive, initially shows a side to her which stems from a shocking upbringing. To cover it up, she lives for her job. She is smart and adaptable to even the most bizarre settings. She is professional in all matters and never creates drama out of stress. She handled a totally unknown situation beautifully.
Sawyer is an admitting clerk at Codee’s hospital. She is loyal and will stick to you like glue. She is easy going, making her very desirable and fun to be around. She is empathic and knows how to soothe another. However, her lifestyle is too fast which causes her to make the same mistake over and over again when entering a romantic relationship.
You can decide for yourself whether you feel that she oversteps people’s boundaries. I did not. She is overly caring with her patients, though. She is very cleaver, which grabs everyone’s attention.
The secondary characters really add to the story. One, in particular, gave me a grandmother feel. The way the author describes her made me feel I could trust her. She is feisty and is in tune with everyone’s current affairs. She was like the mother hen to them and I feel the author did an excellent job creating her character. Some of the things she said made me crack up. Her contributions to the plot are priceless and the story would not have been the same without her.
An intriguing character, Chynna, is introduced later on that changes the direction of the story. She is smart, courageous, and physically strong. Her participation deepens the plot and sucked me in even further. On the inside is her tender heart, fighting for what is right. She made me cry as she was sharing her truth. She is an important character who is going to melt your heart.
During the story, there is a plotline that will give you the creeps and may upset some.
The suspense is so thick that I felt like I was on a thrill ride. This is not a simple story and you will need to pay attention. The author provides excellent descriptions and the dynamic scenes are written very clearly.
The sex is hot, a bit graphic, but tasteful. These scenes will excite the red-hot lover inside the reader. They are full of tenderness and will leave a sweet aftertaste.
You are going to want to carve out about five and a half hours to really enjoy this amazing chronicle. It will blow your mind. It is written very realistically and believable. I couldn’t wait to see what was going to happen next. You can determine for yourself if one small infraction can change one’s perspective.
Here is an excerpt to get you started on this chilling page-turner.
Codee remembered when she’d met the enchanting woman in new-employee orientation. Sawyer had pulled her long, chestnut hair back into a neat ponytail, and the gentle waves cascaded down her back. Although Sawyer had just finished a twelve-hour night shift, those soothing, green eyes never wavered in their intensity as she appeared to hang on every word. Her thoughtful answers to the questions she tossed out to new employees, accompanied by a hint of mischief in her smile, had Codee continuously seeking her reaction while she did her dog and pony show during orientation.
Codee knew she created a compelling and entertaining first impression, but she’d often felt like a phony when some of the stories she told were embellishments of the truth. Yet, the only way to truly illustrate a point was to create that connection to her audience with an intimate anecdote. She should have been an actress because the whoppers she told at these orientations were compelling. Not everything was untrue, but even the genuine experiences were enhanced for effect.
Codee wasn’t great with names, but Sawyer’s stood out as unusual, particularly for a woman, and whenever she passed the young admitting clerk in the hall, she made a point of saying hello and having a brief, albeit superficial conversation with her. She wished she had the ability to get to know her on a personal level, but that was out of the question. As the HR executive, she needed to maintain a strictly professional relationship with all the hospital employees—without exception.
