Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Over the Edge ~ CD Reiss

Lexxie and I read CD Reiss’ The Edge series for the Can You Read a Series in a Month? Challenge. Yep. We finished the series! Yay!! In our chat, we’ve tried to be as vague as possible so as not to spoil anything. 😉 There seemed to be no limit to what Greyson would do for Caden – for love. What I appreciated about this one act is how Reiss used it to create a role reversal of sorts. I loved that Caden had to step into Greyson’s shoes, protect her, fight for her, help her. And he felt inept at times but he continued because he loved her. How did you feel about Greyson’s act and how it affected […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Broken Edge ~ CD Reiss

Lexxie and I are reading CD Reiss’ The Edge series for the Can You Read a Series in a Month? Challenge. We’re trying to be as vague as possible in our discussions so as not to spoil anything. 😉 Wow! In Broken Edge the tension continues to rise with the stakes getting higher. My instinct not to trust certain people was validated but with more people introduced, I don’t know who can be trusted. And that ending left me hanging from the broken edge. Oh my gosh! Yes, the stakes keep getting higher. I didn’t even know that was possible. There is nobody I can trust at all – I’m not even sure Greyson and Caden can be trusted at […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ On the Edge ~ CD Reiss

Lexxie and I are reading CD Reiss’ The Edge series for the Can You Read a Series in a Month? Challenge. We’re trying to be as vague as possible in our discussions so as not to spoil anything. 😉 On the Edge too me out onto the ledge and left me there. I honestly don’t know how Reiss took it up a notch but she totally did. It was an edge-of-my-seat read, keeping me guessing and turning in circles trying to figure it all out. And I’m still working on it, wifey. I agree, there was so much going on, and it was impossible to try to figure anything out. I just felt so bad for both Caden and Greyson. […]

Review: Face Off – Brenda Novak

Review: Face Off – Brenda Novak

Face Off was a good story, but I have to admit I’m starting to think Evelyn will never ever find any peace. And it took quite a bit of suspension of disbelief to get that she could go through so much and still be sane. I really enjoy Evelyn and her thoughts on what makes a psychopath a dangerous person. However, in Face Off, I just started to feel a bit tired because Evelyn can never catch a break! She never had a moment of peace, between her one-time boyfriend from her youth, and Amarok’s ex who was trying to get to Amarok any way she could. The overall story in Face Off was very exciting, especially because I as […]

Review: Five Fights – Belle Brooks

Review: Five Fights – Belle Brooks

Five Fights is the intense, action-filled, and amazing end to Belle Brooks’ The Game of Life series. It left me breathless! Story: There is still a lot going on in Five Fights, and I was unable to figure out who the Wolf was until it was finally revealed. I had suspected this character, but then thought I was wrong… Basically, I had more or lest suspected every single character there was. And I was completely blown away when it came to who it was that was helping the Wolf. I would have never, ever thought it was that character 😉 Five Fights was incredibly intense, and I am still reeling after reading it. The way the story unfolded was so […]

Review: The One – John Marrs

Review: The One – John Marrs

The One shows us a different reality, where people find their soulmate thanks to their DNA. Easy, right? No need to stay alone if you don’t want to, only, things don’t work out exactly as planned. Story: The story follows several characters on their quest to find the one. Their soulmate. The person who will make everything right in their world. The One is also filled with secrets, most of them dark. There are also lies, disloyalty, and downright murderous intent. The One has a great plot, but following so many characters was exhausting. Especially because I didn’t find all their voices to be distinctive enough. However, the ethical perspective on what would happen if we truly could find our […]

Review: Three Breaths – Belle Brooks

Review: Three Breaths – Belle Brooks

Oh my goodness! I don’t even know where to start with my praise for Three Breaths! The suspense is killing me! And I want to know who the Wolf is! Story: This series of mystery and suspense is just so well done! Morgan is still fighting for her life, but barely. Her Husband Reid is almost worse off than she is – with the uncertainty, the fear, and trying to stay strong for their two children. And the way the Wolf is still chasing Morgan, playing with her, toying with her emotions… It is both maddening, scary and incredibly suspenseful. Characters: Morgan is the kidnapped woman. Reid, her husband at home. Wolf, the kidnapper… and he has help. Linda, Morgan’s […]

Review: Hello Again – Brenda Novak

Review: Hello Again – Brenda Novak

Hello Again was so eery, I felt the suspense during the whole story, and it just seems impossible to me that Evelyn will make it through the end. There is more than one enemy now, and my goodness, the ending left me speechless and breathless. Story: The suspense and the psychological thriller aspects were even stronger in Hello Again. Evelyn has more than one person she needs to be wary of, and her newest inmate is so smart and vengeful. He’s at least as scary as Justin. Several things happen to bring more heat to Justin’s revenge, and on top of that, there are murders that seem different from his MO, but could still be by him. Amarok and Evelyn’s […]

Review: Two Footsteps – Belle Brooks

Review: Two Footsteps – Belle Brooks

Two Footsteps was an excellent psychological thriller / suspense / mystery novella! I was completely captivated (pun intended) from start to finish. Story: A little dark, a lot tense, Two Footsteps definitely kept me at the edge of my seat. Who is the wolf? Why has he kidnapped Morgan? There are many clues around her when she wakes up, but none of them make sense to her. There is quite a bit of confusion, and suddenly, she wakes up outside. She’s hunted. And she has no idea how she’ll be able to get out of the wilderness alive. Characters: Morgan is married to Reid, they have two children. As she wakes up in unfamiliar surroundings, she knows her life is […]

Review: The Other Girl – Erica Spindler

Review: The Other Girl – Erica Spindler

The Other Girl was an excellent psychological thriller, with a fast pace and a lot of action. Story: The Other Girl was a scary trip back into the past, but also in the present. Miranda was somehow involved, but not by choice. At the crime scene of a murder, her finger prints were found on a bottle… and there was information about a long ago case, where she had escaped, but had to leave the other girl behind. The suspense was really well done, and with each new revelation, I found it more difficult to trust anyone at all – even Miranda. Characters: Miranda is a detective, and has worked very hard to not be ‘the girl who lied’. In […]
