The Edge of Trust Book Review

The EDGE Of Trust
Author: K.T. Bryan

About the Book:

The stakes are incredible. Failure is unimaginable. The malice unthinkable.

Living a nightmare…
When EDGE operative Dillon Caldwell follows a direct order to bring down the Sanchez Brothers drug cartel, he never imagines that his wife, Sara, would be next on the cartel’s hit list.
Dillon thought nothing could match the pain of losing his wife, but when Sara mysteriously turns up twelve months later, beaten yet alive, he realizes he was wrong. She has secrets she’s unwilling to share, secrets that could cost them their lives.

Hunted by a relentless killer...
Rafael Sanchez has turned a vendetta into a war with no rules. He has taken retribution to an extreme and wants to shatter more than just Dillon’s life. He wants to destroy every reason Dillon has left for living. 

One way in, and no way out...
Trapped in a hostile jungle, Dillon and Sara have nowhere to turn, nowhere to hide, and they find themselves shifting from the shadows of vengeance into the sunlight of justice. In order to survive, they can trust no one, will betray anyone, and are determined to win at whatever the cost. 
Even if it means going over the edge.(less)

My Thoughts:

I loved this book. It had good against evil, romance, danger, and suspense. It was war against drug cartel and the cartel lost. I can only guess how Sara felt when having Ellie and Dillion not by her side throughout her  her pregnancy and then finding out he thought she had died.

Forgotten Dreams Book Review

Author: Alexia Banks

Book Description:

Itching for adventure, Miami private investigator Shane Connelly heads for Swan Creek in North Carolina wine country. But she quickly discovers it’s anything but the perfect spot to while away the summer months. Her country home turns out to be a burned out hovel that she suspects is haunted. Discouraged, she plans to head home when a handsome stranger arrives at her doorstep. Before she can beat a trail off the mountain, Shane and her dashing neighbor Jesse are inexplicably drawn together as they dodge bullets, unearth ghosts, and unravel a dark town secret. In the end, Shane realizes it's not the high altitudes that are making her head spin, but her brooding lover with the penetrating dark eyes.

Here's the link to a 2-minute video for Forgotten Dreams.

My Thoughts:

I really enjoyed Forgotten Dreams. I like reading about 'ghostly visits' if they are friendly!! I can't imagine how Shane felt upon finding out about her true past.The ending could have so easily been another nightmare. Alexia did a great job in putting together Shane's nightmares, the ghostly visits, and her discovery of her family. There was action, romance, and suspense in the story.

The Lure of Shapinsay Book Review

Author: Krista Holle 

Book Description: 

Ever since Kait Swanney could remember, the old crones of the village have been warning her to stay away from the selkies. They claim that like sirens of old, the seal men creep from the inky waters, shed their skins, and entice women to their deaths beneath the North Sea. But avoiding an encounter becomes impossible when Kait is spotted at the water’s edge, moments after the murder of a half-selkie infant. 

Kait is woken unexpectedly by a beautiful selkie man seeking revenge. After she declares her innocence, the intruder darts into the night, but not before inadvertently bewitching her with an overpowering lure. 

She obsesses over a reunion deep beneath the bay and risks her own life to be reunited with her selkie. But when she lands the dangerous lover, the chaos that follows leaves Kait little time to wonder—is it love setting her on fire or has she simply been lured?

My Thoughts: 

I loved this book! I'll have to admit I was hooked from the very beginning and read it in one sitting!! I like paranormal books. Selkies are special in that their shape-shifting abilities are tied to their skin. I liked that Kait was not the one holding sway over her lover. It was a very nice change. The ending was a good surprise.

Krista contacted me about doing a review and I immediately knew it was one for me. She did a great job in keeping me into this story. I can't wait to read another book from her.
