Anger Girl and Golden Boy are really good at Faking It...until they make it.
I didn't read the first book in the series and certainly didn't feel as though I missed out on any details or was lost in any way.
I will definitely be reading more by Cora Carmack. (less)

My first question after starting Kill Shot was WHHHHHY NOT! Boy have I been missing out.
Kill Shot was everything that I love about Romantic Suspense. So, so many good things that hit all my buttons as a reader.
I love a kick-ass heroine and Grace Meredith fits the bill. I love great conflict between H/h and again Kill Shot delivers in spades. Grace and Gabe have history, a story makes you feel for both of them and despite Grace’s determination to keep Gabe at arm’s length and leave their past right where she wants it in the past...they are so totally smokin’ hot together...sizzle, sizzle.
A fast-paced plot, loads of action, sexual tension galore and great secondary characters with names like Grim Reaper and Dragon that make me salivate with anticipation for their stories.
I will definitely be checking out Ms. Hart’s backlist...and so should you!(less)

I always enjoy a contentious start to a relationship between the hero/heroine and then enjoy watching how the author works them through their issues to their HEA. Bad-ass fallen angel Sam has been around the block a time or two and it’s going to take more than the super sexy Seline whose half succubus/half angel to get the drop on him. He’s wise to her attempts to set him up for the kill but plays along with her because she is super sexy, he’s not really threatened by her and she intrigues the big guy.
It’s evident early on that Seline is a reluctant assassin and she’s just trying to escape out from under the thumb of evil Rogziel who raised her after her parents death when she was a child. And Rogziel wants Sam went to Hell literally and Seline is the weapon of choice. When Seline’s true intentions are revealed the whole dynamic changes between Sam and Seline who have to learn to trust each other, work together and literally out run the hellhounds as they try to avoid all the baddies out there who would like to see their time on earth extinguished.
There is lots of action, tense moments and some super sexy scenes. Those angels sure can heat up the sheets!
Looks like Sam’s brother, fallen angel Az’s story is up next. I’ll be sure to check it out. (less)

Besides that, I’m a sucker for the kidnapper-falls-for-victim troupe. I wasn’t disappointed.
I’m not sure paranormal is the correct term to describe Liquid Lies. I definitely would classify this book more along the lines of light sci-fi - kinda like the TV show V except the primaries (humans) have no idea about the secondaries (aliens) living among them. Do you believe there could be aliens living undercover on earth? I personally wouldn’t rule it out and I think the way the author set up the premise for Liquid Lies was believable.
Gwen Carroway believes 100% in her purpose as a translator for her people, the Ofarians and takes her responsibilities within the company run by her father, the chairman very seriously. She has dedicated her life to her people until she’s kidnapped and held for ransom and learns that her life as she’s known it has been nothing but a lie. She’s been deceived and everything she’s believed about the history of her people and the invaluable product produced by the company has all been nothing by a web of lies.
Reed doesn’t do personal. He’s called The Retriever for a reason. He's a cold-hearted, mercenary for hire. Get in, get the job done, get out, get a pay check no questions asked. He didn’t plan on meeting a beautiful, blonde damsel in distress one day or the feelings she ignited in him. He certainly couldn’t have predicted that the woman he’d been hired to kidnap was the same blonde who’d gotten under his skin - Gwen Carroway. He didn’t know why he was her jailer and didn’t care - to him she was just a job...initially. Gwen's not at all what she seems and she was so much more than Reed bargained for.
As the story unfolds in Liquid Lies, it was heartbreaking as Gwen learned the truth about what her people were really doing to manufacture the product Mendacia, that brought them all their wealth.
I really thought the characteristics of the Ofari people was unique with their ability to use water to transform themselves. Very cool!
I will definitely be picking up the next book in this series. I am intrigued by the thoughts of aliens living amongst us *cue the scary sci-fi music*. (less)

For anyone who enjoys Romantic Suspense - this is a must read and for .99 on Amazon, you'd be crazy not to read it.
Sometimes the best books are the ones you have no expectations about, don’t even know anything about and discover quite by accident. I was trolling through Amazon, checking out .99 books and noticed Stolen Justice had quite a few good 5 star reviews. I’ve never heard of this author, but the blurb sounded good and since romantic suspense if my favourite genre, for .99 even if it stunk - no big deal.
Stolen Justice is like a little gem I discovered and it is as far from a stinker as you can get. I loved it!
A sure sign for me about how much I like a book is when I want to read it to the exclusion of doing all else. I was sitting in the dentist office on Friday afternoon and all I could think about was "hurry up so I can get out of this chair so I can finish reading Stolen Justice. I also knew before I was ½ way finished reading that I would be giving it 5 stars.
Laura Danvers is a nerdy geek, Bill Gates smart computer chick and she’s got a plan to bring down a scumbag. To execute her plan she’s going to need JT Flynn and his “crew” to make that happen.
This book was non-stop action with an Ocean’s 11/12 or Mission Impossible feel to it. The plan to bring down Ibank CEO and humanitarian Rob Autrey who is also the scum of the earth running a secret underground website that launders money and is involved in the sex trade (again the “IT” topic of a lot of books I’ve read this year) was complicated, elaborate and dangerous.Laura had the necessary goods on JT and his team to gain his compliance (what’s a little blackmail between friends?) and although JT was pissed at being blackmailed, he felt he had no choice but to agree to help Laura even if it meant risking his team.
JT runs the heist of a famous Van Gogh painting in Rob’s possession like a precise military operation. Every member of his team has a job and he runs a tight ship as the leader of his pack. In reality Laura is the brains behind the operation and she may just have kept a few pertinent details from JT...ohhh boy did she! The twists and turns and secrets revealed as the story progressed kept me on edge and kept me riveted to my IPOD and swiping the pages. Lots of things I didn’t see coming.
The planning and heist take place over only a couple of days and the pace and action is frantic. I loved JT and Laura, the secondary characters in the crew were compelling and the entire story was one of the best RS I’ve read in a while. I scoured the interwebz to see if I could find out if DJ Gross had another book but no luck - I couldn’t even find a webpage for her. I hope she releases another book soon! (less)
