BOOK REVIEW: CARROTS by COLLEEN HELME - SHELBY NICHOLS ADVENTURE # 1 - CONTEMPORARY MYSTERY

By: Colleen Helme
Published By: Colleen Helme
Released: Available Now
Details: Kindle Purchase, 286 Pages

RATING: 3.75 STARS

Blurb: Goodreads

Shelby Nichols is an average woman who is married to the only guy she ever fell for. Her life is organized and predictable, revolving around her husband and two children. All that changes the day she stops at the grocery store for some carrots. As the cashier rings up her purchases, a gunman is busy robbing the bank inside the store. When a customer grabs the robber's mask, he is shot and everyone runs for cover. Everyone except Shelby, who finds herself face to face with the killer. The next thing she knows, she's lying on the floor with a bullet wound to her head. Luckily, the bullet only grazes her scalp, and she doesn't suspect any lasting effects until later when she suddenly 'hears' what people are thinking. With this uncanny ability, her life takes on a whole new dimension. Her kids think she's bossy and too old to understand them, but that's nothing compared to her husband. He says he loves her, but what is it about the redhead at work that he doesn't want her to know? As if that isn't enough, the gunman knows she can identify him, and he's out to silence her forever. In her fight to stay alive, she is saved from certain death by a handsome hit-man with ties to organized crime. This pulls Shelby even deeper into danger, where knowing someone's thoughts can not only hurt her feelings, but get her killed.


BOOK REVIEW:

I bought Carrots in September 2014 and have only just read it and now the Shelby Nichols Adventure is a full-blown series. All the covers are so pretty. I do love them.

Who knew buying carrots could lead to a bullet graze to the head resulting in the ability to read people’s minds?

Shelby is a stay-at-home mum with two teenage children, well, one is twelve. Her husband, Chris, is a lawyer. Shelby pretty quickly gets mixed up in a whole pile of shenanigans which lead her to a confrontation with Ramos, Uncle Joey’s hit-man and standing in front of the mob boss and making a deal with him.

Let all the crazy begin.

The one thing I did enjoy very much was Colleen bringing to life the real-life complications of being married and being able to read your husband’s thoughts. I don’t know how many relationships could withstand that one-sided knowledge and come out the other end, not altogether unscathed, but still in love. That is opening up a whole world of hurt for the person who can read those thoughts, not to mention the invasion of privacy Chris had to deal with. I felt his pain, I really did. But at the same time, he was a bit of a PITA with his ignorance of Kate, the redheaded vixen in the office. I mean...really? Dude you’re supposed to be intelligent. He did redeem himself with me and his love for his wife conquering the hurdles placed in their path. Also, he gets a pass for the invasion of privacy his wife had to learn to deal with and try to control.

Uncle Joey... fear him or love him, he plays his part well. Kate is an excellent biatch. You will loathe her, which equals author's-job-done.

This installment is very silly, possibly a little eye-rolling and a tad predictable, but I will be coming back for more.

Ramos seems a bit of a knock-off of Ranger from Stephanie Plum, but I can live with Ramos if he can show me he’s worth adoring like I adore Ranger. #teamranger

As per the Stephanie Plum series, you will be sure to be getting a car explosion.


I couldn’t rate this first installment any higher because I’m not altogether believing in Shelby’s character as much as I should be from this first installment. She did annoy me a fair bit with her choices and after reading so many Steph Plums, Ramos seemed a little transparent and I do fear a Chris/Joe-Shelby-Ramos/Ranger situation possibly coming over the horizon

But I won’t know until I read more.

Assuming. Much.


BOOK REVIEW: BLACK AS NIGHT by J.C. ANDRIJESKI - QUENTIN BLACK MYSTERY # 2 - PARANORMAL MYSTERY

By: J.C. Andrijeski
Published By: J.C. Andrijeski
Released: Available Now
Details: Kindle Purchase, 294 Pages

RATING: 4.75 QB STARS!

Blurb: Goodreads

Forensic psychologist Miri Fox travels across the globe when her now-employer, psychic detective, Quentin Black, calls from a police station in Bangkok and asks for her help.

She arrives to find Black undercover inside a gang of local criminals, determined to discover which of them is killing street children and ritualistically burning their bodies inside Buddhist shrines. But Black isn't the only one with an interest in the crimes, and soon his investigations get the attention of the local sex traffickers, along with a crime syndicate out of Russia that doesn't appreciate his meddling one bit.

When Miri shows up to help, she manages to catch the attention of all the wrong people. Events quickly spiral out of control...until Miri soon finds herself the hunted.

The second book in the paranormal mystery romance series starring brilliant but dangerous psychic detective, Quentin Black, and his partner in crime, forensic psychologist, Miri Fox.



BOOK REVIEW:

What I so enjoy about this series is Quentin Black. Miriam Fox aka Miri is a great character and they make a great team, but Quentin is gorgeous to read. I will admit I do cringe when he begs for sex from Miriam when he is such an alpha character otherwise, but that is my only complaint. I hoped JC wouldn’t repeat it after book 1...but...

I am gonna say the only reason I am not giving this installment 5 stars, is because of the trigger scene. Not because it is a trigger scene because authors, by all means, go ahead and be brave with your content, but... (cue the dramatic music) I needed more than a shower and a few band-aids with the after-care.

OMG!

This is a very graphic chapter where Miri is put through the most horrific things, for many days, over and over and...I'm not upset it's written so detailed, but I wanted her at least checked over afterward by a professional.

GOOD LAWD!

Holy shit on a pumpkin stick!

QB has people who he trusts and dude must need medical care at some stage of his long life, if not write one in, and make it a  female doctor. 

Seriously, I find this quite lacking and in need of sufficient words to make it better. A sentence that explains whether there are causes for alarm from diseases, pregnancy... damage within the inner girlie department. 

Something!

Don't get me started on what your mental state would be afterward.

As I said, this is a very graphic chapter. It is brutal on Miriam. I can see a lot of readers have dropped stars for this, but I can only bring myself to drop a quarter star because taking that one chapter into consideration, compared to the rest of the story, I won’t dock more.

I just think if you are gonna go detailed and I mean DETAILED, then you gotta whip some more words out, JC. 

Rant over.

We do get told Miriam is an ex-soldier and she has martial arts skills. I would like to see that side of her coming into play more.

Other than that, I am coming back for more as I do adore QB teaming up with Miriam and the sexual tension thrown in among the mystery.

BOOK REVIEW: TWO PRINCES by VICTORIA DANANN - SONS OF SANCTUARY MC # 1 - MC ROMANCE

By: Victoria Danann
Published By: 7th House Publishing
Released: Available Now
Details: Kindle Purchase, 310 Pages

RATING: 3.5 STARS

Blurb: Goodreads

New Biker Romance series from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Victoria Danann. No cliffhangers.

Two brothers, one a player, one a playboy, are on a crash trajectory with destiny and two broken hearts.

BONUS PREQUEL INCLUDED: Intro to the Sons of Sanctuary MC. A Season in Gemini


Brigid was a graduate student at the University of Texas. She had no trouble getting her thesis approved, but finding a Hill Country motorcycle club willing to give her access to their lifestyle was looking impossible. Then she got a lead. A friend of a friend had a cousin with family ties to The Sons of Sanctuary. Perfect. Or was it?

What Brigid wanted was information to prove a proposition. The last thing she had in mind was falling for one of the members of the club. Especially since she was a feminist academic out to prove that motorcycle clubs are organized according to the same structure as primitive tribal society.

Brash was standing in line at the H.E.B. Market when his world tipped on its axis. While waiting his turn to check out, his gaze had wandered to the magazine display and settled on the new issue of “NOW”. The image on the cover, although GQ’d up in an insanely urbane way, was… him. 


After reading the article, Brash threw some stuff in a duffle and left his only home, a room at The Sons of Sanctuary clubhouse, with a vague explanation about needing a couple of days away. He left his truck at the Austin airport and caught a plane for New York, on a mission to find a mysterious guy walking around with his face.



BOOK REVIEW:

This is my second Victoria Danann read, my first being My Familiar Stranger, Knights of Black Swan # 1.

I really enjoyed the bonus prequel story A Season In Gemini. It is a great background introduction.

I did have a little trouble with Two Princes.

Two grown men going to one hell of a lot of trouble to play at essentially ‘The Parent Trap.’ It did feel a little…erm… what is the right word? Immature?

I found it hard to believe an MC guy and a billionaire (twins) wouldn’t just straight up talk to their parents. It felt kinda lost on me the energy they spent setting it all up.

I have to rate this book in the lower range of 3.5 STARS as it just didn’t feel realistic that a billionaire couldn’t just straight up talk to his mother and an MC guy couldn’t just speak to his father about it. Not the way this story was written anyway.

There was no obstacle put in the path of the twins to make them choose the path they took (swapping identities) only to do the big reveal and the parents didn’t have a major reason to not have told two grown men about their brother. There wasn’t like a dirty reason or anything. I think I was looking for some major reason for the whole shenanigans apart from the mother’s father which was kinda lame.

I needed there to be a real purpose to going to the lengths they did rather than just talking it out.

There were other things like Brigid paying $250,000 for something so she could write her thesis. I don't care how much money a student has got, that just seems preposterous to think it's okay to spend that kind of money to get information for a thesis. If it's gonna cost you that kind of money, pick a new idea for your thesis. 

I get what Victoria was doing, but a little OTT.  



BOOK REVIEW: ELIZABETH AND THE CLAN OF DRAGONS by AVA MASON - RH FATED ALPHA # 1 - PARANORMAL ROMANCE

By: Ava Mason
Published By: Ava Mason
Released: Available Now
Details: Kindle purchase, 114 Pages

RATING: 4 STARS

Blurb: Goodreads

A female Wolf in danger. Four Sexy Dragons determined to protect her. A Reverse Harem Paranormal Romance.

Elizabeth is certain she’s not meant to rule the Southeastern White Tooth Pack. Since birth, she’s been told she was the wolf pack’s fated leader. She is, after all, the first-born of the pack Alpha. But how can she lead them if she’s never shifted? She doubts herself, but her fate is tied to the moon and Elizabeth is honor-bound to fulfill her destiny. To help Elizabeth, her mother presents her with a secret diamond necklace, magical jewels that have adorned the neck of every female in her family for hundreds of years.

But evil forces lurk in the shadows.
Not every wolf shifter in the pack wants Elizabeth to take power. When the Wolf Council sanctions Elizabeth as the official Fated Alpha, enemies attack her family, killing her parents. When they discover that Elizabeth survived, she must flee for her life. With nowhere to go, help comes in the form of four sexy and powerful Dragon shifters.

The fierce warriors offer her their protection in their secluded mountain home.
As Elizabeth mends, it’s clear the four Dragon shifters crave more from her. All four men desire her. Each wants to claim her body and heart and soul.
As her enemies close in, can the men keep Elizabeth safe by their side and help her reclaim her place as leader of her pack?




BOOK REVIEW:

This story starts off in one direction, and I actually forgot dragons were going to be involved and then we make an abrupt right angle.

Enter the dragons.

I did like the idea for this story. I do understand it is a shorter read, but within these pages, I would have liked a little more time spent in some areas.

I really liked Aaron’s character, but then…

I ended up pretty much forgetting about the lad in the first part of the story as I'm now in the reverse harem of sexy dragons, which I likey, maybe a little bit too much.

Hunter is a fave.

I did feel like Elizabeth's character was more seventeen than twenty-four, but then there is what felt like a rather large leap in maturity towards the end of this first installment, which I found a little hard to grab hold of.

I think what I am trying to convey is the story felt a little hurried along for me to be able to give five stars.

I will be reading more in this series as I am intrigued and the covers are beautiful.

I will say this was a good start, but for me personally, I would have liked the change in direction to have been a little more curved—not so hurried and more depth to Elizabeth's character and some of the scenes.

I did enjoy this read.
