Lights Out! Let’s Party.

It’s weird because the cosmos always hand me books one after another or one close to another with a similar problem amongst the characters or same name, something in common. I mention it because the dynamic which produces the Blackout Trio is one that I had just read about in another book of another genre–I can’t tell you as it spoils both books, but the universe is weird. That’s all I can say.

When you are as jaded and bored as Jameson Filano, you need a little something to light up your life; oddly enough, for her, it’s a party where the lights go out. Of course, it’s not just power failure but also the three powerhouse personalities in the room that fascinate her until her kidnapping and subsequent trip to the beach, which ends in more inquisitiveness. But life goes on in her world, and no one even notices the time that she’s gone. Her world tilted a little, and no one else saw. C’est la vie.

Title: The Revenge You Seek (Maddison Kings University #1)
Author: Tracy Lorraine
Genre: New Adult, Dark Romance
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a jerk!
I mean that. I don’t know if I mean Kane Legend or Scarlett Hunter, though. Both are kinda jerky. Jerkish? Jerksome. I don’t know what the term is. They are both jackholes, if you ask me. I like Letty a little more than Kane, but not by a whole lot. I think you are supposed to feel an abundance of sympathy for her, and I do. BUT she’s a McJerkyjerk.

So if you read the prequel, you know what happened the night eighteen months ago, and if you don’t, they refer to a sweaty something-something in a dirty puddle often enough to get the idea. Kane and Letty hate-effed the heckfire out of each other, and nothing good came of it.

Eighteen months later, the devil is back, and Letty has seen her nightmare come to life, in that Kane is the embodiment of some heartache unknown to us readers. Cliffhanger level stuff here.

Book Review: Enemy Dearest by Winter Renshaw

Title: Enemy Dearest (Monreaux Brothers #1)
Author: Winter Renshaw
Genre: Contemporary Romance
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A Rose girl by any other name is still a Rose, and if you are a Monreaux that might as well be the dirt below one’s feet. August Monreaux recognizes Sheridan Rose as the naked venus floating in his pool on a hot-as-hell summer night, but why she is there is anyone’s clue. He knows, and she apparently is aware of too, that Monreauxes and Roses don’t mingle. Enemy Dearest is a modern-day Romeo and Juliet, and Meredith Hills plays the part of Verona. 

I enjoyed this story! There is a fair amount of rawness to Winter Renshaw’s storytelling that feels like she’s giving her character’s open-heart surgery. They don’t get to love easily; they really have to work for it. I can appreciate any story where the characters are put through their paces.

Author: K.L. Kolarich
Genre: YA/NA High Fantasy/ Adventure
Release Date: 19 January 2021

Summary:

BEHIND THE MASK OF DUTY AND POWER, NO ONE IS WHO THEY SEEM…

Centuries after the Forgotten Wars ravaged the world and turned it to ash, the Houses of Pilar, Darakai, Boreal, and Bastiion forged an accord with the royal line of Thoarne, founding a Quadren of advisory to the throne of Orynthia. Every generation, a single Haidren from each of the four Houses is appointed to this coveted chair.

Upon her Ascension to adulthood, Luscia Tiergan takes her seat at court as al’Haidren to the House of Boreal and is quickly drawn into a maze of political traps and dark secrets. As she adjusts to her new life, Luscia uncovers a pattern of forgotten children, slain in the streets of Bastiion.

Raised on superstitious rumors about Boreal’s penchant for sorcery, Zaethan Kasim, al’Haidren to the House of Darakai, inevitably clashes with Lusica when she arrives in Bastiion. But when his position is threatened by an old rival, Zaethan is forced to set aside his hatred and form an uneasy alliance with the Boreali al’Haidren to secure his claim.

Following a disturbing stream of innocent bloodshed across Orynthia, Luscia and Zaethan discover their ideals are far more aligned than they might have imagined. But in a land of war and deceit, the path to peace should never be trusted.

Book Review: They Call Me Gomer by J.C. Miller

They Call Me Gomer by JC Miller

Title: They Call Me Gomer
Author: J.C. Miller
Genre: New Adult, Urban Inspirational, Christian Fiction
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Real deal, like a heart attack, kind of read.

They Call Me Gomer is one of those reads that pulls you in and drags you through in immersion therapy. J.C. Miller doesn’t just use diary entries, but she enriches the story with the characters’ tongue. You can hear the speech, feel the personalities. She takes you there and makes you part of Go-Go’s story–the path she makes through her early life and the bumps and thumps she takes. They Call Me Gomer is not a pretty tale. It’s rife with instability, self-destruction, and a desire to live the better of the best life. GoGo’s journey is sometimes something you would want to turn away from but can’t stop yourself from reading more.
