IF YOU LIKED BRIDGEWATER COUNTY, YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS THIS HOT NEW SERIES FULL OF WILD MOUNTAIN MEN!

We want Kit Lancaster. We’ve wanted her for years. Both of us. Me and Donovan. It might not be normal for two guys to claim a woman together, but we live in Cutthroat, Montana and we’ll do what we want. And what we want to do is Kit.

What could get in the way? Oh yeah, a little thing called murder. And since I’m the lead detective and Donovan’s the prosecutor, it might not be the smartest thing to bed the prime suspect. As if that would stop us.

Evening all, a little later than planned, and further to my teaser post earlier, found here

I have unwrapped my Blind Date With A Book, to find this beauty:

Burb:

Throughout her life, Rachel Cullen followed a simple yet effective route straight to mental health misery. Suffering from bipolar disorder, and hungry for approval at any price, she settled for flunked relationships, an ill-fitting career, and poor health to match. Whilst mindlessly seeking a utopian vision of ‘normality’ that she was mis-sold and so desperate to achieve, the solution seemed increasingly illusive.

Stuck in this endless cycle of disappointment with her life, and not knowing how to handle the strain of her mental illness, she put on a pair of old trainers. She’d never been able to think of herself as a ‘runner’, and the first time she forced herself out the door, she knew it would hurt. Everywhere. She just didn’t realise how much it would heal her, too.

Interspersed with Rachel’s real diary entries, from tortuous teen years to eventually running the London Marathon, Running for my Life will make you laugh, cry, and question whether you really can outrun your demons. 

Trying to get into running properly recently myself, this is actually on my TBR. I am really looking forward to getting started on this!

Things are never what they seem; especially in police work.

John Testarossa is an LAPD cop with an NYPD attitude who has seen it all. The dead, the dying and the decomposing are all in a day’s work for the red-headed Italian from Brooklyn.

After an arm rolls up on a Santa Monica beach, and the dead body to which the arm was once attached is discovered, John and his partner, Alex Ortiz, enter the world of college sports, athletes, and the illegal drugs that enhance their performance.

Rage and revenge come together in a toxic cocktail John is all too familiar with. It defined him as a young boy, and ultimately still does as a man. He carries a dark secret.

It is in the beautiful Dr. Karen Gennaro—who has a few secrets of her own— that John finds a soft place to land. Even as he knows all too well what falling in love with a cop can do to a woman.

What sustains this hard-boiled detective is the bond he shares with his brave and dedicated partners. When that bond is destroyed in a senseless act of violence, will his past, and a desire for vengeance, destroy him?

From Los Angeles, where Venice Beach, Marina del Rey, and the dream of Abbot Kinney’s Venice Canals paint a picture of bliss, Testarossa will take you on a deeper, darker journey.

#BlogTour | #BookReview | THE MENTOR by Lee Matthew Goldberg @LeeMatthewG (June 13th 2017) @BlackthornTours

Welcome to our stop on this blog tour. Thank you very much to Henry @ Blackthorn Tours and Lee Matthew Goldberg for providing a copy of the book to [K]

The review below is 100% honest and all of her own views.

Blurb:

Kyle Broder has achieved his lifelong dream and is an editor at a major publishing house.

When Kyle is contacted by his favorite college professor, William Lansing, Kyle couldn’t be happier. Kyle has his mentor over for dinner to catch up and introduce him to his girlfriend, Jamie, and the three have a great time. When William mentions that he’s been writing a novel, Kyle is overjoyed. He would love to read the opus his mentor has toiled over.

Until the novel turns out to be not only horribly written, but the most depraved story Kyle has read.

After Kyle politely rejects the novel, William becomes obsessed, causing trouble between Kyle and Jamie, threatening Kyle’s career, and even his life. As Kyle delves into more of this psychopath’s work, it begins to resemble a cold case from his college town, when a girl went missing. William’s work is looking increasingly like a true crime confession.

Lee Matthew Goldberg’s The Mentor is a twisty, nail-biting thriller that explores how the love of words can lead to a deadly obsession with the fate of all those connected and hanging in the balance.

Review:

When I saw that Lee Matthew Goldberg had written another book I jumped at the chance after loving The Desire Card, and I was not disappointed.
William Lansing reads in his local paper that his old student Kyle Broader has managed to get himself a brilliant job as an editor at a prestigious publishing house, he sees an opportunity to get his book that he has been working on for the last 10 years published.

Kyle is ecstatic that his old college professor has contacted him to publish his opus. The only problem with Wiliam’s book is that it is very dark, and horribly written.

When Kyle sympathetically declines to publish William’s book, events take a dark turn.

William is a very unsettling character, who creates chaos and mental instability in Kyle’s life for spurning his beloved novel. Outwardly a pleasant and charming old college professor to everyone but we, as readers, have access to his thoughts and feelings that paint a very different story. 

I found this to be an unputdownable fast paced thriller, which I read in record time.

I cannot wait to see what Lee will publish next!

#HappyValentinesDay | #BlindDateWithABook

Happy Valentines Day everyone! [K] here

My local library have a stand with wrapped up books so you can have a Blind Date With A Book!

They have done this for at least the past 3 years and each year I participate.

I love the idea of a mystery book being chosen at random and have found some authors that I would never have previously read.

This year according to the Librarian all the books participating are new so there is no chance this is one I will have already read

I will be unwrapping my book later to see which is my blind date! So keep an eye on the blog/social media for the update!

Does you local library do anything like this? Have you got a Blind Date With A Book? Let us know in the comments below!

#ExcerptReveal | STRIKING DISTANCE by L K Shaw @LKShaw_Author (February 20th 2020) @LWoodsPR

Victor has to fight the enemy and his feelings for his sister’s best friend…
Striking Distance by LK Shaw comes out February 20 and you can read an excerpt BELOW!
RESERVE YOUR COPY NOW!!


BLURB:
She’s a damsel in distress.
I’m supposed to protect her, not desire her.
Especially since she’s my sister’s best friend.

Estelle
I never imagined I’d get caught in the crossfire between the police and the Mexican cartel. After a failed kidnapping attempt, a bodyguard attaches himself to my hip.

Why does it have to be Victor: my best friend’s brother and the man I’ve had a crush on since I was sixteen?

Victor
Estelle tempts me like no other woman. I push aside my attraction though. My goal is to keep her safe, not sleep with her.

The stakes are at an all time high when someone betrays us to the enemy. Now it’s a race against the clock to find her before it’s too late.

EXCERPT

I wanted to be able to trust this moment right here. I was desperate for it. My mind clutched tightly to the belief that Victor’s words were real. So I’d keep filling my memory box with these feelings and emotions until it couldn’t hold any more. “I’m really glad I have you.” That was all I could commit to at the moment, but considering my feelings about relationships, that small concession was a giant step for me. “So, why don’t you tell me what you were talking about in the meeting.” Victor stepped back with a frustrated sigh. “We were discussing the fact that we still don’t have any answers. There’s nothing that ties the attempt to grab you and the crash yesterday together, yet they can’t be a coincidence. Not within only a few days of each other. Which means we’re back to square one with zilch to go on.” I could understand his discouragement. It was a struggle living with the unknown. “You still think it could be Álvarez behind it?” “My gut keeps saying yes, but the fact is…I don’t know. No one’s been able to confirm his location. If anyone does know anything, they’re not talking. Although, I shouldn’t be surprised. He’s a highly wanted man after Brody turned over all his evidence. I’m actually surprised they haven’t apprehended him in Mexico yet and extradited him back here to stand trial. He must be deep in hiding. ” It was the little things about Victor I was truly starting to notice. Like the fact that not only did he pace when he was frustrated, but he ran his hands through his hair as well. Right now he was almost wearing a path in the carpet, and his hair was mussed. I found it incredibly sexy. The intensity he gave off.
