Earths in Space Volume 1 is two novellas. Set it the future, on a ship that visiting planets they believe to be as similar to Earth as possible, and finding out if there’s any intelligent life on them and if they would pose a threat to our Earth.
In the first story, Liberty of Death, the crew investigates their first planet. The air is just like Earth’s air, and the grass is just like Earth grass, but what Amena, the main character, didn’t expect was to find humans, just like on earth. What they didn’t expect was the 4 gods that controlled the population.
Amena and her crew have to decide if it’s worth it to get involved in the lives of these other humans, or leave them to their own path. What follows is a great little Sci Fi Adventure, and some true American values! Saving Earths on at a time!
I loved this story, I thought the character reactions were so truthful, and this ideas so interesting. I really like posing the question of whether to get involved in the other Earth’s business or not,… Continue reading

*This Book Was Given To Me In Exchange For An Honest Review*
I loved this book! There was a sense of impending doom hanging over me all the way through it that kept me turning pages – Mostly because I read the title and then I met Gill who screams victim from the get go. It was just a matter of time.
Gill Brogan is an unremarkable single mother of two. She had cruel parents and a cruel ex-husband. She has worked hard her entire life to provide for her children but with little success. She is constantly bullied and taken advantage of because of her submissive and shy demeanour. Naturally she is targeted…
As you read Gill Brogans story the book flicks to the perspectives of Cyber Crime Investigator Mike Watson and Police Investigator, DS Lucy Taylor. These two are investigating the deaths of several missing women who have turned up dead, having been tortured within an inch of their lives. The men responsible are neat and organized monsters; they never leave any evidence behind. Mike soon discovers a well hidden trail of disturbing footage on the internet. It becomes apparent… Continue reading

*This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review*
Liam and Katy were high school sweethearts, they stuck by each other and when Liam’s acting career took him to Hollywood Katy, now his Katy wife follows. Liam finds himself caught up in the glitz, glamour and politics of making it and staying ‘IT’ in Hollywood and fails to see Katy slipping away from him. After one more party Katy doesn’t approve of he wakes to find Katy gone and a note. Four years later, after failing to find her Liam Warren, the actor of the moments finds himself filming on and around a college campus where he finds Katy.
I’m not really a fan of an entire book being retold from a different characters point of view, even if there are little extra scenes added. But I liked this one, I think it’s because I preferred this story being told from Liam’s point of view so much more than I did Katy’s. I enjoyed the scenes that followed Katy leaving and the aftermath of her decision. I felt Liam’s character and his actions were so much more believable and… Continue reading

Liam and Katy were high school sweethearts, they stuck by each other and when Liam’s acting career took him to Hollywood Katy, now his wife, Katy follows. The glitz and the glamour took its toll though and Katy found herself choosing her happiness and walked away, leaving Liam to his career and his party life style. Four years later Katy and Warren haven’t spoken to each other or seen each other, she is in her final year of college and Liam Warren, the movie star ends up filming on her campus.
I enjoyed this, I did not love it. I was on holiday and it was a nice relaxing read. But it didn’t hook me and I think the main reason for my lack of excitement was the ease in which Katy forgives Liam. She’s spent four years hiding from him, now I didn’t want a will they won’t they story but I did want Katy to stand her ground a little. If she was so willing to be back with Liam then what was the last four years… Continue reading

*I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.*
Armageddon, what happens if Hell wins? That’s what we find out in this truly epic tale. Rich in detail, graphic and gory, Bazaar answers the question-what if evil prevails.
Intense and action packed, Bazaar thinks nothing of killing off his characters, including main ones. The writing is gritty and dark. A fast paced read that will not let you put it down. The characters are bigger than life, but don’t get too attached to any one, they may be next on Bazaar’s hit list!
If you like stories with angels and demons, love and hate, twists and turns, you will love this book.

Disclaimer: I was given a free ecopy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
This novella (which is the debut of the author) was a short, easy read. The setting of the story is on a beach (what better place to have a romantic encounter!). The overall plot of the story was good, but the romance/relationship between the two main characters felt a bit rushed. I felt like as soon as they laid eyes on each other that was it and was pretty predicatable. There was no real build-up to the falling in love…i’m all for love at first sight but felt the story could have been even better with a little more build-up. I also felt like there were parts that could have been left out, i.e. the description of Jackson’s cabin. I like how both characters had their own story of loss. Jackson had been through his, learned how to cope and was living a life he could be proud of. Tracey, fresh out of her loss, was trying to learn how to move on. I have to admit when Jackson shared his story of… Continue reading

All Tyler Karras wants is to enjoy life with his expectant bride. What he gets instead is a graveside seat at her funeral. With the woman who killed her uncharged and still free, all Ty wants now is revenge.
His brother, Nick, has dangerous connections and suggests a sadistic plan: grab the woman responsible and hand her over to his associates–sex-traffickers in San Francisco’s Russian Mafia. They offer Ty more than he dreamed possible. In exchange for the woman, they’ll finally let his brother leave the business for good–with his debt wiped clean and his heart still beating.
There’s just one problem: Ty kidnaps the wrong woman.
Now he must protect Hannah Maguire from the very enemy he’s unleashed, but the Russians are holding Nick as leverage to force Ty to complete the deal. Caught in a no-win situation, Ty must find a way to save himself, his brother, and the woman, but with the Russian Mafia, even two out of three makes for very long odds.
I would… Continue reading
