My Review for Nico J. Genes’ ‘Lessons in Life’

Good afternoon, friends and thanks for stopping by. I want to thank you for my continued success with ‘Awakened by Fate.’ This week I’m presenting my review of Nico J. Genes’Lessons in Life.’

Lessons in life is a compilation of short inspiring stories. Each one tells a tale about a life’s lesson. The topics include looking at what we take for granted, gratitude, and the choices we make in life. She offers good words of wisdom and a positive outlook on life.

One of my favorite stories is about something simple we assume without questioning. It goes to say what we are taught as kids do stick with us as adults and then we go ahead and do the same thing.
Lessons in Life coverA second story caught my attention deals with fear. It is interesting to learn children don’t experience it the same as adults. You’ll see what I mean in the book.

Another topic caught my eye. It is about imposing opinions. People tend to want to change other’s points of view on issues. The author explains her take on this. I find her words inspiring.

This book is a fun read and can be read within five hours. It is very moderately-paced, and each story is unique. The way each is written is clear and will grab your attention. You do not need to read the stories in order if you don’t want to. You will get the message. I feel like a new awareness came over me as a result of reading this book. I really enjoyed each story and I know you will too. I am recommending it to everyone. Don’t forget to read the introduction to the book as it was writing by yours truly.

Excerpt

Everyone has their reasons for their own choices. We are all unique individuals. We make our choices based on the way we were raised, places we grew up in, schools we attended, books that we’ve read, our life experiences, things and places we’ve seen, our thoughts, based on certain feelings or simply our taste. This list could go on and on.

My Review for Graysen Morgen’s ‘Mission Compromised’

Good afternoon Everyone and welcome. Thank you for stopping by last week and thank you, Erin Wade for the interview. Recently I read a few books, including Graysen Morgen’s ‘Mission Compromised.’  Today I am sharing my review of the story.

Book CoverThe story starts out in Fiji with its over-the-water bungalows and lush mountain ranges. There are a few points of view in the story with the first two debuting early in the plot. Lets’ meet them.

Natalia de la Faria Moreno is a beauty who radiates everywhere. Immediately I was drawn to her kind nature. She adores her father and mother. She is well traveled, having lived in many countries growing up. Very intelligent and has a deep care for things that are important to her, such as her conscious-being profession. I found her charming, including when she was on the emotional side. She is seductive and needy, but I wanted more of her.

Christian Garnier is another main character who travels to Fiji. It is spelled out clearly that she has trust issues and can’t tell the difference between a criminal or a saint. She is a private person and doesn’t openly share. The few times she did are priceless. She does have a soothing vibe and knows exactly what to say at the right time. Her dangerous lifestyle will give you goosebumps. She will keep you guessing the entire ride as well as surprised.

There is a third point of view, Collette. She is Christian’s ex-lover. She is brash and still holds onto a past pain. However, I feel they worked well together. You’ll see what I mean in the book.

A fourth point of view pops up later, which I feel is unnecessary.

One of the antagonists is so well described that he will give you the creeps right from the start. Even his name will make you shiver. You’ll see in the book the sleazy role he plays and how he operates.

There is hot steamy romance in the story which I will leave for the reader.

The author has good descriptions of the scenes and I love all the places the protagonists visit. She includes things like ‘salty air’ and ‘turquoise water’. She did research on the story locations and included some local attractions such as a cathedral in London, which made me feel like I was there. This adds beauty to the story and makes you want to read more.

The pace of the story starts out slow. There is an exciting twist that follows that will get you hooked. The author takes you on a roller coaster ride around the world, visiting several countries. It took me about six hours to read, so I would carve out some time to read. I am recommending this book for all who enjoy suspense and mystery. Be prepared for a sudden ending.

Here is an excerpt to get you started.

Book Cover

Natalia stood on the upper deck of the catamaran, feeling the salty air tinge her face as the boat raced across the turquoise water. It had been so long since she’d had the sun on her back and ocean water on her skin. Working as a Marine Conservationist, you’d think she spent most of her time around marine life and ocean water, but her job was managing the education workshops for teachers, as well as all of their educational tools. The reason she was going for her PhD was to become the Head of Education at the Oceanarium. Her goal in becoming a conservationist was to educate people on marine life and how to preserve it.

As the cat rolled over a wave, Natalia’s mind was elsewhere and she was thrown slightly off balance. She barely had time to react before someone steadied her. Natalia didn’t have to look twice, to tell the person with short, curly, dark hair and dark sunglasses, was female.

“Careful,” the woman said as she passed by, walking towards the port side from the bow without looking back.

Natalia’s focus went back to the island in front of them, growing larger as they became closer. She reached up, touching her pendant. “Thank you, Papai,” she whispered.

Purchase ‘Mission Compromised’

Until Next Time,

My Review for Erin Wade’s ‘Death Was Too Easy’

Good afternoon readers and friends and welcome. I want to thank author Jenny Frame for stopping by last week. Also thanks to all of you for your support.

Today, I have a special treat for you. A few months ago, I interviewed author Erin Wade and for those of you who missed it, you can click on the link below. Recently, I read her book, ‘Death Was Too Easy’, and today I’m reviewing it. I invite you to join in and participate in the comments.

Erin Wade’s Interview

This story is brilliantly written. The main characters are Judith and Mandy and Angie. Along with them are Jordan and Rick, who play key roles.

Judith is a judge who is lonely.  She is a conservative who wants to restore justice.  However, she has a soft hidden side to her that she wishes to express. And it is no coincidence when Mandy enters her life that her maternal instincts emerge. But there is a price.

Angie is a teen who escaped an abusive relationship. I found her to be a great character because she is sweet and would never hurt anyone. You will find out more about her as you read along.

Like Judith, Mandy wants nothing more than to restore justice for the community. She is a lawyer who has dedicated herself to a life of service. She carries herself well and is respected. She is my definition of being ‘sharp.’ She fits her role perfectly.

Judith and Mandy experience love and romance in a sweet and passionate way. Mandy meets up with Jordan and the flirting begins. I love stories that have this aspect to them. The sensual scenes are described in such a way, that you can visualize without them being too graphic.

Mandy is charmed when a second interest, Rick comes into play. He is very persistent with a magnetic personality. He is smooth talking and did add good drama to the story.

In the midst of this is a mystery case, involving both Judith and Mandy. A twist pops up that will blow you away, so you’re going to need to pay attention. I was locked in as the story moved along. The plot kept me wondering throughout.

Some scenes described were graphic and shocking.  There is abusive action and I had to put the book down to catch my breath. Then another surprise to this deep story emerges, creating more spectacle. You are going to want to set aside about six hours to read this because you are not going to want to put it down once you start. Be prepared for the unexpected ending. Whew!

I have included an excerpt to get you started. Enjoy.

Book Cover 2

Jordon drove to her office. She knew she wouldn’t be able to sleep. Thoughts of Mandy Kincaid were racing through her mind. She tried to ignore the scenes that continuously played behind her closed eyelids.

Mandy Kincaid wasn’t just beautiful; she was excruciatingly gorgeous. The feelings she stirred in Jordon were achingly painful. Her beauty fueled the fantasies of men and women.

Jordon changed into shorts and a light t-shirt. Five miles on the treadmill should send her into an exhausted sleep. She searched for the reason she had kissed Mandy. She was certain the attorney was straight. The shocked look on Mandy’s face haunted her. The last thing Jordon needed was to become involved with the prudish blonde, but it was the thing she most wanted. She thought about a line written by poet Sylvia Plath; I desire the things which will destroy me in the end. Plath committed suicide at age thirty.

Jordon was certain an entanglement with Mandy Kincaid would destroy them both.

Thank you for stopping by. Like I mentioned above, I’m encouraging book discussion in the comments. Stay tuned for next week when I will be speaking with author Kathy L. Salt. Her new book, ‘Out of Hand’ is now available.
