ProjecIn the course of one day an asteroid projected to pass a million miles from earth is suddenly redirected on a collision course with our planet. Projected to impact near Puerto Rico, this asteroid will destroy all forms of life leaving the planet free to become the home of The Breeders and their human hybrids.
Taken from an orphanage at a very young age, Michael Kendon was trained as a Directorate assassin. For many years he carried out his job with no hesitation but once Michael learned of the coming genocide he went undercover into the resistance and became a double agent.
Led by Dr. Donald Meller the resistance has a powerful weapon designed to deflect the asteroid but it's been hidden away and when all the members of the resistance are captured and killed Michael is expected to lead the Directorate to the weapon but he has other plans.
Gray Apocalypse is the perfect blend of sci-fi and thriller. With just enough technical aspects to make it realistic the book doesn't get lost in fantasy. It is action packed and suspenseful enough that it kept me up late into the night. I can definitely see this as a blockbuster movie staring some sexy action hero as Michael Kendon.
Be sure to visit the book's website grayapocalypse.com for a sample chapter and a chilling video of what an asteroid hitting the earth would look like. Scary! Gray Apocalypse is a must read for sci-fi and thriller lovers. ...more
Comedian Steve Harvey of the nationally syndicated Steve Harvey Morning Show shares with us his ideas on how a woman can catch and keep a man. He giveComedian Steve Harvey of the nationally syndicated Steve Harvey Morning Show shares with us his ideas on how a woman can catch and keep a man. He gives us a heads up (in case we didn't already know this) that most men are out for one thing only. There are tips on how spot a mama's boy, how to train your man and even answers the questions you've always wanted to ask a man but never did.
I enjoyed this book much more than I thought I would. A lot of woman who've read this book have been offended or turned off by his thoughts saying that he's sexist. First of all he's a comedian not a relation ship guru but second of all there's a lot of truth to what he shares. If you start a relationship by letting the man run all over you that's what he'll do the whole time but if you put your foot down in the very beginning he'll either shape up or ship out. And no one knows this better than Steve Harvey... his wife did it to him when they first got together.
Nothing I read was new to me but seeing it laid out like this by a man just kind of gives you a refreshing take on it. Harvey is direct at times but he's always honest with humor thrown in. And the book is not just for single women in the dating world but for any woman in a relationship or not. I was reminded of a few things I could do to improve my own marriage and I recommend this to anyone who wants to understand men better. ...more
Sixteen-year old Hailey Trosclair’s family is going through a tough patch in the midst of a tough life in a lower class neighborhood in New Orleans. RSixteen-year old Hailey Trosclair’s family is going through a tough patch in the midst of a tough life in a lower class neighborhood in New Orleans. Recently her mother had a miscarriage and her father lost his job.
After the miscarriage her mother turned to religion to heal her family but neither Hailey nor her older brother Cyrus could embrace it as fully as she did. In fact Hailey questions why her family has to face so many hardships if her mother is praying all the time. The answer she gets comes from an unlikely source, failed preacher and ex-con, Moses. He tells her that sometimes things have to get worse before they can be saved and what unfolds from there definitely proves that point.
Dirty Little Angels is a dark and gritty story with characters so real I swear Tusa is writing about people I know. He captures Hailey’s voice along with her growing angst perfectly and the secondary characters are remarkable and I especially loved the way the title ties into the story. The writing flowed perfectly chapter after chapter but the reason it’s not rated higher is that I wish the story had more depth. There was no build up or intensity and although there is a shocking conclusion the book didn’t have the page turning affect I expected from such great writing.
When freelance insurance adjuster Fifi Cutter accepted her latest job she thought completing it would be a piece of cake. She never expected a simpleWhen freelance insurance adjuster Fifi Cutter accepted her latest job she thought completing it would be a piece of cake. She never expected a simple debunking of a workers comp claim would turn into a murder investigation.
The person in question was employed as a document clerk by the law firm of Wong, Wu & Chu when he filed the claim. In the middle of her investigation he is murdered and Fifi’s best friend who also works at Wong, Wu & Chu recommends her as his replacement when they begin a high profile case against the charter jet company that hired the ”crazy fool” that kills five.
Crazy Fool Kills Five was a fun read that I zoomed through in just one day. Freeman brings us an absolutely hilarious character in Fifi. She cracked me up from the very beginning and kept up the witty exchanges throughout the book.
This is also book two in the Fifi Cutter mystery series and a couple of incidents that I assume appeared in in Murder... Suicide... Whatever... were briefly mentioned in Crazy Fool Kills Five but it’s definitely a stand alone read. I don’t see any more books in the series on the horizon but I hope I’m wrong. Fifi is too good of a character to go away. I highly recommend this one to mystery and cozy lovers. ...more

Gone were the days of dealing with the craziness of thThree years ago Calliope Reaper-Jones put herself under a nice and comforting forgetting spell. Gone were the days of dealing with the craziness of the family business, Death, Inc. All Callie had to worry about now was finding the perfect man on Craig’s List and finding organic dim sum for her boss.
One bite of an organic cupcake later and Callie is right back in the middle of the family drama. Her father’s right hand man, Jarvis, has come to notify Callie that her father and older sister have been kidnapped. Callie being next in line must assume the role of Death or her family losses their immortality. But it’s not as simple as being the second oldest, Callie has to complete three tasks in order to take the reins and she has a competitor for the job… the devil’s incredibly “hot” and irresistible protégé.
I got a total kick out of this book. It’s very different from the usual fantasy/paranormal story lines and it was funny to boot. Among the characters Callie had to face off against where, a psychical detective, an evil sea monster, a bitter Goddess and the devil himself.
This was the first of a new series featuring Callie. It was a faced paced read and I look forward to many more books in this series. Highly recommended for urban fantasy or supernatural fiction lovers. ...more

Hagen has fouWhen Antique collector Hagen Rayner's uncle passes away he leaves Hagen his cherished Chicago home full of antiques but there's a catch. Hagen has fourteen business days to find the deed to the house by following clues left behind by his Uncle. If he fails the house will be passed on to his cousin Dag who plans to sell the house and its contents to support his failing business. The only help Hagen will get on his search is from Uncle Birger's much younger friend Maeve Delaney.
Maeve Delaney knows that Birger's family doesn't trust her. They think she's a gold digger that targeted Birger and she can clearly read the hostility in their eyes. Being an expert in making people disappear, her first instinct is to run but Hagen finds her in the nick of time and begs for help. Together they begin the search but can they find the deed in time with the obstacles Dag throws in their way?
Now this is what romance writing should be. Last year's Breach of Trust was winner in my book and I was eagerly anticipating Invisible. Kimber Chin lived up to the expectation and gave us another hot story. Hagen and Maeve are remarkable characters with exceptional chemistry. The storyline was completely believable and I was quickly engrossed in the search by the first few chapters. This is a must read for romance lovers. ...more
