Fractured (Will Trent, #2)

did not like it
I’m going to get straight to the point. I didn’t like this. Not only is Lake’s name ridiculous, most of her actions are ridiculous. She seems to be al ...more

Labor Day

I Heard That Song Before

did not like it
This book had all the right ingredients for a good thriller — love, money, murder, drugs, blackmail… Instead it was a hot mess. Very choppy, very hurr ...more

Dragonfly in Amber (Outlander, #2)
