Sometimes, relationships can be deadly.

Terri thought she was marrying a strong, loving man, only to find that beneath that handsome face lies something cold, brutal, and dangerous.

The first thing that caught my eye about this book is definitely the cover. It screamed THRILLER to me. Once I started reading the book, I can't put it down.

This book tells the story of Terri who had an abusive husband. The Prologue tells about how she decided that she had enough of him and its time to end the beatings. I wanted to applaud for her courage and I loved how she described the throwing out of his stuffs as Spring Cleaning.

The story progressed with her living in disguise to ward off

As an author, Salazar is very diverse. She writes about a variety of different topics and approaches a variety of touchy subjects, bringing them to light and giving a venue for discussion. She also makes each and every one of her works a phenomenal work of art. They are uniquely captivating tales that bring forward some issues in mainstream society that most individuals don’t like to talk about. Spring Cleaning is definitely one of those stories.

I couldn’t put this book down. I was captivated fr

What can I say….but wow! Another great story from Ms. B. Salazar. I have read four of her eight books and have come to the conclusion that no matter what she puts out I am going to love. She keeps my mind from wondering with her great writing style and this story is another proof that whatever she writes will be a hit with me.

Terry has had enough and wants to start clean but her abusive soon to be ex-husband wants her back. Her new job is not great but she earns enough to pay the bills and she

I absolutely loved the story! I found it to be very well done and I absolutely loved the characters in the book! I don’t know how Terri drew inner strength the way she did!

This was a great example of a book you don’t want to put down. The plot line consisted of Terri trying to escape the past with an abusive husband, and what happens after he gets out of prison with an axe to grind. While trying to protect Terri from her ex-husband Randy, her boss Luke falls for her. The lengths these two go to

This is the first book I have read from Ms. Salazar and I would like to continue to read more of her books! Spring Cleaning starts off kinda more into the storyline then I wanted to be. I think it would have been better if we could have built up getting to know the main characters like Randy, and how his rage/anger started.
The book definitely had me wanting more by the time I was turning a page. I would get through a chapter then another one, till I was almost half way through the book. It is sc

This is the first book of Ms. Salazar's that I have read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. First of all, I was on the edge of my seat for most of the book. The abuse that Terri went through, the life she had to suffer, all broke my heart in so many ways. The acts that her husband, Randy, committed were heinous. Too often, this is the reality for many women.

Anyway, I absolutely adored Luke and although he wasn't a squeaky clean kind of guy, he had worked through many of his own demons and was trying t

WHAT I LIKED: This author has a lot of talent. The mixture of drama and romance was so well crafted, that I went through more emotions in this one book than I ever have before while reading. It cleverly mixes good and bad, sweet and shocking, and mysterious and romantic. It seemed almost effortless for the author to convey anticipation, intrigue, and scenes that made my adrenaline run high from page 1 until the very end.

WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: I would have liked to see the fight scene in the beginni

Full of suspense and romance! I loved it!

Terri married the perfect man. Or so she thought. Her perfect husband became the monster she never wanted. Ever. He abused her throughout their entire marriage. Until finally, Terri turns him in. Although she ran away and started a new life for herself, Randy is still after her, seeking for revenge.

This book was a great read. I had high expectations for it and it reached them!
5 Stars!

Spring Cleaning was the second book that I've read by Brandi Salazar. It is a solid story that is well written. In general, I thought she did a good job building the main characters (Luke and Terri.) I would have liked a little more information about Luke's past. But, overall, I didn't feel that it was lacking. Their romance didn't feel forced and I appreciated that it wasn't "magical". They simply grew to love each other.

While the book was suspenseful, I cannot say I was surprised by the majori

There is a certain realism in this story that makes it appealing to any woman who has ever been abused or controlled by a man. They will cheer the ending.

Brandi Salazar started writing poetry, short stories, and novels at a very young age, weaving tales to share with her friends that were geared toward making them laugh. Today her writing habits reflect that, ranging from mystery/suspense/thriller to paranormal and YA romance, and no matter how different her works may be, you can always find a healthy dose of action, romance, and humor.

“He had to get inside. It was essential that he know everything, the routes she took, her schedule, and the lay of the land.
The silver moon glowed overhead, mocking him. Somewhere in the trees an owl hooted its laughter at his failure.

“Terri had already gotten her panties into a bunch just from one little phone call, so he knew coming at her too much too fast would be more trouble than it was worth. He couldn’t exactly beat her into submission, not right away anyway. Although he did enjoy seeing her get all riled up.
Nothing tugged at a man’s heartstrings like a pair of mascara smeared eyes.
