A troubled genius who vanishes in a mysterious car crash.

A disillusioned cop sensing conspiracy in the corridors of power.

A ruthless team of mercenaries operating in the shadows.

A billion-dollar business that wants the world in its grip.

One link connects them all.

A champion fighter. Betrayed and searching for the truth.

CAMERON KING IS THE HUNTER.

REVIEW – A non-stop action story that has very interesting characters who help you get sucked into the story and then no be able to put the book down. Plenty of surprises in the story kept me gripped and i did not expect some of the surprises at all. Intense action and fight scenes that where easy to read so in turn great images of the scene in my head led to high octane action story well worth a read

We all see what we want to see…

2019: Julianne is preparing a family dinner when her son comes to her and says he’s found something on his iPad. Something so terrible, it will turn Julianne’s world into a nightmare and make her question everything about her marriage and what type of man her husband is or is pretending to be.

1990: Holly is a fresher student at Oxford University. Out of her depth and nervous about her surroundings, she falls into an uneasy friendship with a group of older students from the upper echelons of society and begins to develop feelings for one in particular. He’s confident, quiet, attractive and seems to like her too. But as the year progresses, her friends’ behaviour grows steadily more disconcerting and Holly begins to realise she might just be a disposable pawn in a very sinister game.

A devastating secret has simmered beneath the surface for over twenty-five years. Now it’s time to discover the truth. But what if you’re afraid of what you might find? 

REVIEW – This book sounded so good, but i am afraid the reality did not live up to the hope. A very adult themed thriller and mystery story that was too graphic in some scenes that it left me feeling the description did not add to the story. It felt more there for the ‘adult’ factor. I am sure many people may like this thriller but for me it was not at all to my liking

A little girl went missing years ago. That child is you.

A dark and gripping debut psychological thriller that won the 2017 Victorian Premier’s Literary Award, previously won by THE DRY and THE ROSIE PROJECT.

A child was stolen twenty years ago
Little Sammy Went vanishes from her home in Manson, Kentucky – an event that devastates her family and tears apart the town’s deeply religious community.

And somehow that missing girl is you
Kim Leamy, an Australian photographer, is approached by a stranger who turns her world upside down – he claims she is the kidnapped Sammy and that everything she knows about herself is based on a lie.

How far will you go to uncover the truth?
In search of answers, Kim returns to the remote town of Sammy’s childhood to face up to the ghosts of her early life. But the deeper she digs into her family background the more secrets she uncovers… And the closer she gets to confronting the trauma of her dark and twisted past.

REVIEW – An interesting idea of a story, but for me i just could not connect with the story as much as i had hoped. That is not to mean others will not enjoy the book, i liked the idea for the story a lot and the psychological thrills where there, i was left wondering what was going to happen next quite a few times. The writing for a debut author was very good, and i hope to see more from this author in the future and see their writing style develop. Worth a read, just not for me and my reading likes this time.

BREAKING: Nuclear weapon detonates over Washington

Historian Jon Keller is on a trip to Switzerland when the world ends. As the lights go out on civilisation, he wishes he had a way of knowing whether his wife, Nadia, and their two daughters are still alive. More than anything, Jon wishes he hadn’t ignored Nadia’s last message.

Twenty people remain in Jon’s hotel. Far from the nearest city and walled in by towering trees, they wait, they survive.

Then one day, the body of a young girl is found. It’s clear she has been murdered. Which means that someone in the hotel is a killer.

As paranoia descends, Jon decides to investigate. But how far is he willing to go in pursuit of justice? And what kind of justice can he hope for, when society as he knows it no longer exists?

 

REVIEW- The blurb really drew me in for this book, then he cover is also so intriguing i had to read it. A solid story with plenty of mystery and thrills and worry over is it all true and when the world ends could you survive mentally and physically. The narration was spot on, engaging and had me thinking deep and hard about the characters and what they are going through. The story delves onto the idea that to be with people but still be alone at the end of the world can have interesting results.Worth stepping out of your comfort zone and having a go with this story 

One Tough Cowboy – Lora Leigh & Veronica Chadwick

29th January 2019

First in a brand-new series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Lora Leigh and Veronica Chadwick about one man’s pursuit of justice—and unbridled desire. 

LAW AND ORDER. 
For as long as Samantha can remember, Hunter—a man as strong as steel, with a heart of gold—has been her hero. It came as no surprise to Samantha when she found out that the ranch-hardened cowboy who always protected her from bullies went on to become the town’s sheriff. What does surprise her is how incredibly hot he still is. And how much she still wants him…

PRIDE AND PASSION

And, lo and behold, Hunter still has feelings for Samantha. The long-smoldering heat of their innocent flirtation has grown into a full-raging fire. But when tragedy strikes, and their small-town community is shattered, Hunter vows to do everything he can to keep his childhood sweetheart safe. But can Samantha trust that Hunter has her best interests at heart…and that, after all these years, his love is true?

REVIEW – Loved this book, a story of past desires which you thought where one-sided but actually are reciprocated. But who loves a romance that runs smoothly as Hunter and Samantha are both caught up in a set of murders in their sweet little town. Hunter is so hot and i love how protective he was of Samantha in the past and now in the present. I loved the danger element of the story, it added another level of tension between Samantha and Hunter – not just the romantic tension but one of protectiveness and strength in the characters especially alpha Hunter.Very sexy at times and very hot – you have been warned!!
