Week 9 Review: Obsession in Death

From Goodreads:
Lieutenant Eve Dallas walks the thin line between love and hate in the latest thriller from #1 New York Times bestseller J. D. Robb...Eve Dallas has solved a lot of high-profile murders for the NYPSD and gotten a lot of media. She - with her billionaire husband - is getting accustomed to being an object of attention, of gossip, of speculation.

But now Eve has become the object of one person's obsession. Someone who finds her extraordinary, and thinks about her every hour of every day. Who believes the two of them have a special relationship. Who would kill for her again and again. An aggressive defense attorney who's sparred with Eve in the courtroom is the first victim, but she isn't the last. The messages left for Eve at the crime scenes chill her and turn her stomach. It doesn't get much more personal than this - and Eve refuses to hand the investigation over to anyone else. With a murderer reading meaning into her every move, handling this case will be a delicate - and dangerous - psychological dance.

And Eve knows that underneath the worship and admiration, a terrible threat lies in wait. Because the beautiful lieutenant is not at all grateful for these bloody offerings from her "true and loyal friend." And in time, idols always fall....

My Review:
This was a really fantastic book! Loved being with Eve and her team when they track and find what, from one perspective, be their worst criminal, one that believes in Justice, but that her hands are tied, so tries to fix it-and said bad guy works for the police in some capacity.

This takes place just in the last few days of 2060, and yeah, we get to see some of her previous cases. Like the one from number 3? Where the guy controlled Eve and Roarke with his music. And then a few others, before Eve finally catches her!

We got a few looks into the killer's head, because she wrote a few journal entries, and then the notes that she left for Eve. And maybe it's a bit of a spoiler saying "she" but around halfway that's discovered, so yeah. And that ending, wow! Eve was certainly fast there! And now I just want more!

One little question I have, since I don't know colours that aren't nice and simple like red, blue, yellow, green, purple, ext. is if the colour for the main part of this cover, is it the same as the suit that Morris was wearing? I believe Peabody called it something that Eve confused with chameleon, orange red?

Favourite lines: "She considered, as she never had, that she could install Roarke's real and excellent blend in the break room. But then she rejected the notion as temporarily sentimental.  You just didn't go around breaking tradition of bad cop break-room coffee because you felt good about having good cops under your command. Besides, they'd lose the fun of sneaking in and stealing it from her AutoChef. Who was she to spoil their good time?" Uh, not doing it is being sentimental! "But while it's not pink – thank you, Jesus – I have a magic coat." Yes, go magic coat! "I got connections. Programmed it in as spinach smoothie. Not one of my kids is going to touch that option should lives depend on it. It ain't loaded with sugar or caffeine, they ain't going near it." That is both very smart, and very mean! "Yeah, yeah, I got it’s red. I don't know why it's red. A purple herring makes more sense – or less, which is kind of the point – but I got it's red." Ah, the saying/idiom Eve's protesting this book! So funny! "'Candidates.' For Dallas’s new best friend. I'm not really clear on how I ended up with the friends I actually have, but I do know a top requirement is no murdering lunatics need apply." Of course! "Sorry, but my wife getting love letters from a thrice-divorced woman with a son does have some amusing factors." Yeah, kinda! "I haven't been interested in anybody since Luca. After we broke up, I asked myself: What would Eve do? It really helps me to think things through that way. WWED! And I thought, Well, Eve would sit back, take some stock, just live life, you know?" Wow, she is definitely obsessed with Eve! "Turning down baked goods? Eve thought. Her cops had decided to throw up full shields." Yeah, they would, seeing this case! "'Should I assume an impending apocalypse as you’re home early and show no signs of injury?' 'Should I assume you have a pulse as the cadaver I just visited shows more signs of life than you?'" Ah, their bantering! So funny! "He wasn't sure how he managed to hold her down in his weakened condition, or if his ears would ever stop ringing from the screaming, but, again, it was worth it." All because he turned the shower down from 102 degrees to 90? And she thinks that's cold? Too funny! "You may have a face a mother would have a hard time loving, Dirk, but you make up for it with your cheerful, outgoing personality and sparkling charm." Yes, Dirk, from Portrait in Death, I think? His former apprentice? Love these glimpses of these past cases! Though I'm not remembering them, which sucks! "Kentucky bourbon. Good stuff if you can get it. Got family in Lexington. My uncle's been known to chase the wild goose after a few rounds of Wild Turkey." I don't know alcohol and names for it, but this little confusion is funny! "Others warned that all activity in said rooms would be monitored and recorded. One way to discourage personal use if a cop had an urge to virtually lie naked on a beach, or get it on with a fellow officer, visitor, or tech. There were ways around it, of course, and rumor was the second holoroom was routinely glitchy because somebody messed with the monitors so they could lie on the beach or get it on." Of course that would be going around! "I'll keep an eye out for homicidal women who think I'm an easy mark." Because you're not an easy mark, Feeney! "Then again, maybe the kid was plotting how she'd get her hands – or her mouth – on the diamond again." Oh, that is just so cute! "FYI, evidence indicates I'm currently toxic. Any contact with me may result in death. Take the appropriate precautions." If she sent that message out, it'd be awesome! "I'll remember that should I have to arrest you for aiding and abetting homicidal vegetation." Yeah, why would you want a plant that eats humans? "I wasn't going to let the last words I said to you be 'Later, honey.'" Yes, because that is not an Eve thing to say!

What a great book, and just proves, that this series is still going strong, 40 books in!

Week 9 Reviews: In Time, Never Fade

From Goodreads:
Gabe's life has been devastated in the wake of the economic crash. The only option left for someone like him to escape his tragic past is to leave his small town behind and to attempt to become a skip tracer. This already almost impossible task is made all the more difficult by his first score, a young girl who won't speak, but who changes his life in ways he could never imagine.

From Goodreads:
Ruby never asked for the abilities that almost cost her her life. Now she must call upon them on a daily basis, leading dangerous missions to bring down a corrupt government and breaking into the minds of her enemies. Other kids in the Children’s League call Ruby "Leader", but she knows what she really is: a monster. 

When Ruby is entrusted with an explosive secret, she must embark on her most dangerous mission yet: leaving the Children's League behind. Crucial information about the disease that killed most of America's children—and turned Ruby and the others who lived into feared and hated outcasts—has survived every attempt to destroy it. But the truth is only saved in one place: a flashdrive in the hands of Liam Stewart, the boy Ruby once believed was her future—and who now wouldn't recognize her. 

As Ruby sets out across a desperate, lawless country to find Liam—and answers about the catastrophe that has ripped both her life and America apart—she is torn between old friends and the promise she made to serve the League. Ruby will do anything to protect the people she loves. But what if winning the war means losing herself?

My first review of In Time, Never Fade
My Review:
These were really fantastic to reread again! And on a funny note, ish, that the first time, I read it before and after a job in one part of town. While reading them this time, I had another job in that area! So that was cool!

In Time, oh, man, such a great story! We get to see this world from the perspective of someone who isn't running and hiding, and who has been living in what's normal for the rest of them. So that's great! And we get to meet Liam and Cole's mom! Yeah! But oh, we still don't know if Gabe lived or died!

This was the first time, that I realized, that if you put the titles of the full length novels, they make a workable sentence! The darkest minds never fade in the afterlight. Though spell check doesn't think "afterlight" is a word! So that's pretty cool!

The ending, with Gray staging the attack on his life, so he could attack Los Angeles, well, very clever, and evil! But that Clancy wasn't able to destroy the research, that was great! But, oh, Jude! I'd forgotten that it was him who died!

Such great books, so enjoyable, so good, and I can't wait for more! Need to finish this series!

Week 9 Review: The Da Vinci Code

From Goodreads:
An ingenious code hidden in the works of Leonardo da Vinci. A desperate race through the cathedrals and castles of Europe. An astonishing truth concealed for centuries . . . unveiled at last.

While in Paris, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is awakened by a phone call in the dead of the night. The elderly curator of the Louvre has been murdered inside the museum, his body covered in baffling symbols. As Langdon and gifted French cryptologist Sophie Neveu sort through the bizarre riddles, they are stunned to discover a trail of clues hidden in the works of Leonardo da Vinci—clues visible for all to see and yet ingeniously disguised by the painter.

Even more startling, the late curator was involved in the Priory of Sion—a secret society whose members included Sir Isaac Newton, Victor Hugo, and Da Vinci—and he guarded a breathtaking historical secret. Unless Langdon and Neveu can decipher the labyrinthine puzzle—while avoiding the faceless adversary who shadows their every move—the explosive, ancient truth will be lost forever.

My Review:
Such a great book! Loved reading it, and then watching the movie, just awesome! Loved making the comparisons, seeing how they're different (like the movie of this comes before the movie of Angels and Demons, but I read and watched in book order!)

So I get why there's a different lady in this book. But I don't get why she would find Robert attractive. And I can understand why there is a 3rd lady in the next one. But I won't like it if his companion in the 4th is a girl, because that's just too much, and just overused!

The whole thing with Mary Magdalene being the wife of Jesus, and mother of their child, and the idea that they could have living descendent now, well, that's pretty cool! I can see that happening! And the whole thing of the modern day bible being created and arranged by a pagen, and the male centric world, well, just proves one thing-that mankind is flawed, and make mistakes, and the bible can't be taken as literal, word for word!

Oh, the ending! I knew that who the Teacher was, but his manipulations were just not nice at all! That he killed his butler like that, and used him that way, not cool! But in the end, he didn't get to find out where the Grail is, so yeah!

Favourite lines: "Symbologists often remarked that France-a country renowned for machismo, womanising, and diminutive insecure leaders like Napoleon and Pepin the Short-could not have chosen a more apt national emblem then a thousand-foot phallus." Probably not! "Congratulations. You have just escaped from the Louvre." Yes, you have-via a soap bar! Awesome! "Indeed. The more penises you have, the higher your rank. Boys will be boys." Well, probably a good deal of them don't know what the symbol means beyond ranking, unless it's part of what they're told or something! "Actually, that depends on how often you dust under your couch." Yeah, it's your fault it it's found! "Robert, you're saying you wrote a manuscript that delves into a secret society, and your editor sent a copy to that secret society?" Sounds a bit silly when you think about it! But it was planned and purposeful for things like this to happen! "Baphomet also appeared in group photographs when some joker raised two fingers behind a friend's head in the V-symbol of horns; certainly few of the pranksters realized their mocking gesture was in fact advertising their victim's robust sperm count." Whenever I do it, it's bunny ears, not horns. One evolved into the other? Strange!

I really enjoyed reading this so much, and now to keep going in the series!

Week 9 Review: Stupid Girl

From Goodreads:
Only fools fall in love... 

After her senior year of high school leaves behind nothing but heartache, Olivia Beaumont is sure of this: She's no stupid girl. She sets out for Winston University, promising herself that she will remain focused on her first and only love – astronomy. But all it takes is cocky sophomore Brax Jenkins and an accidental collision with a football, to throw her entire year off course. 

A quick-tempered Southie who escaped the inner city streets of Boston to pitch for Winston, Brax is known to play way more fields than just the baseball diamond. So, when his name is drawn to take part in his fraternity's hazing dare, Brax eagerly accepts the mission to take Olivia's virginity. But he doesn't plan on falling hard for the sweet and sassy Texas girl who sees right through his bad-boy persona. 

As Olivia and Brax battle their feelings for each other, echoes of the past year begin to surface. A boy who once turned Olivia's whole world upside down reappears, and "harmless" pranks wreak havoc. Pretty soon the aspiring astronomer is on the verge of revealing her most difficult, heartbreaking secret. All the while, Brax must wrestle with the irrevocable dare, and Olivia struggles against all logic as she does the one thing only a stupid girl would do: fall in love. 

My Review:
This was a really fantastic book! I only read it, because earlier this week, I was participating in the review tour of the sequel. So of course I had to read this book. And I'm so thankful I did, it was really great! Though when I was going to add a review to NetGalley, I noticed that I'd been approved for it, so it's also a NetGalley book!

For me, this book reminded me a bit of Wait for Me by Jennifer L. Arementrout, because the both have heroines who've been through a traumatizing sexual experience, that they get away from in college. And Brax was like a bad boy version of Cam, it was awesome!

I really enjoyed them as a couple, they worked pretty well together, with sarcasm flying, and their inertial meeting was just hilarious! Though the reason for the follow up interactions, well, not so great, and caused a lot of conflict!

Because it was a virginity dare, and with her past, well, that was a really bad situation, really for all involves. Though I wouldn't have minded for some really serious, hard-core begging from him after that, since he went along with the dare, though he did fall in love with her. So yeah, the ending as it did was just really great!

Favourite lines: "My clothes just went out of style. Are you in the bathroom or something?" She hasn't responded for your text that long, Brax!

This was a really great book, and I'm so glad that I read it!

Week 9 Review: Viper Game

From Goodreads:
Hailed as "the queen of paranormal romance" by J.R. Ward, #1 New York Times bestselling author "Christine Feehan continues to amaze readers" (The Eternal Night) with her phenomenal novels. Now, from the author of the Dark Carpathian series, comes the newest in Christine Feehan's explosive GhostWalker series…

GhostWalker Wyatt Fontenot knows the price he paid for the secret military experiments that gave him his special catlike abilities. After all, he left his bayou home a healer and came back a killer. While Wyatt and his GhostWalker brother Gator may have known exactly the sort of game they were getting into, Wyatt never anticipated where it would lead—or to whom.

The swamps hold many mysteries, but few are as sinuously seductive as Le Poivre de Cayenne. The woman the locals call Pepper is every bit as enigmatic as the three little girls she's desperately trying to protect. From what, Wyatt is soon to discover. Right now Pepper needs a man like Wyatt. Passionately. But her secrets are about to take them both deeper into the bayou than either imagined—where desire is the deadliest poison of all.

My Review:
Oh, this was a really great-and long-awaited-book! I enjoyed it so much, it was really great, plus its the first book for team four, and it stars a Fontenot, which hasn't happened since Night Game!

Wyatt and Pepper were a really great couple, with one big thing-besides her biochemical-that the bad guys used their reproductive DNA to create triplets, without their knowledge or consent! Pepper was already a good mom, but Wyatt caught up pretty quickly!

I enjoyed most of these characters! Wyatt, I didn't really like his cat's possessiveness, which made me glad that I'm not Pepper, but other then that he was pretty good! And, oh, grand mere and the triplets, they were awesome and cute respectfully!

We also got the start of a new couple, who'll probably star in an upcoming book, which is really great! Because we'll probably get the next books without an almost 3 year wait! Plus, they were a pretty great couple!

Favourite lines: "Magnificent meal, Nonny, I'm actually full...for the time being." That's a good thing! "And please don' grab the baby like you're thinkin' and dive out the window. I don' want to be fixin' the damn thing tonight, and Grand-mere would have my hid for scarin' you." Very true! "Well, technically they weren't really vipre's they were elapids, but vipers sounded more...female." Sure, that's a great reason! Also, it's easier to spell! "Of course now that I'm givin' it a little thought ,we'd better buy you a lot. I like rippin' it offa you too.Choices are always good." I don't think that's what she meant! "'Wait until I give the go-ahead and then get to the children. And don' let them bit Trap.' 'Please, don't let them bite Trap,' Trap added" Yeah, of course he wouldn't want to be bit, but this is really funny! "'That's always been your trouble, Zeke. You're a wild car. Anarchy reigns when you're in the mix.' 'I have trouble with authority figures. My profile says so.' 'You had that in your profile? So did I. You should see the things that psychiatrist said about me and authority.' 'Mine says I am the authority." Yes, Wyatt, Zeke, and Trap are very strange! "They're not breathin'. No heartbeat. No pulse. Nothin' at all. That doesn' mean they'll stay that way. They could rise any minute. the new zombie warriors. Maybe it's Braden whose going to be responsible for the zombie apocalypse." Just because they were hard to kill, doesn't mean that they'll become zombies! "Wyatt's right. Braden started the zombie apocalypse." Again, that's killing them, vs. them coming back to zombie life! Different things! But so hilarious!

I enjoyed this book, it was really interesting, new, and I can't wait for more!

Week 9 Reviews: The Murder Wall, Settled Blood, Deadly Deceit

From Goodreads:
The Murder Wall: It's where you look death in the face.

Months after discovering a double homicide in a sleepy village, detective Kate Daniels is still haunted by her failure to solve the crime. When a new murder gives Daniels her first case as officer in charge, she jumps at another chance to get it right.

But even more shocking than the brutal killing is the fact that Daniels recognizes the corpse. Eager to prove herself, she decides to keep her connection to the dead man a secret from her team, putting her career in jeopardy as her personal and professional lives threaten to collide.

As the killer continues to claim his victims, Daniels unearths baffling clues in her search for connections among the murders . . . and while she draws closer to finding the culprit, he is watching her. 

From Goodreads:
A gripping thriller for fans of Tess Gerritsen and Lisa Gardner.

When a young girl is found dead at the base of Hadrian's Wall in Northern England, it's not long before detective Kate Daniels realizes her death was no ordinary homicide. She was thrown from a great height and was probably alive when she hit the ground.

Then a local businessman reports his daughter missing. Her description fits the dead girl exactly. Has Daniels found the identity of her victim—or is a killer playing a sickening game?

As the investigative team delves deeper into the case, half-truths are told, secrets exposed. And while Daniels makes her way through a mountain of obstacles, time is running out for one terrified girl. 

From Goodreads:

Four a.m. on a wet stretch of the highway: a driver skids out of control. Quickly arriving on the scene, detective Kate Daniels and her partner, Hank Gormley, witness a horrifying display of carnage and mayhem that proves to be one of the worst traffic accidents in Northumberland's history. But as the casualties mount, they soon realize that not all of the deaths occurred as a result of the accident …

At the same time, on the other side of town, a house goes up in flames and its two inhabitants become charred corpses. Except for the timing, there is no evidence to connect this incident with the traffic accident. But it soon becomes apparent that all is not what it seems, and that Kate and her colleagues are always one step behind a ruthless killer who will stop at nothing to get what he wants. 

My Review:
To be honest, I wasn't sure that I'd be able to read these books. I was about 100 pages into The Murder Wall, and was so annoyed with lots of little things that I almost gave up. But I got Deadly Deceit from Edelweiss, so I just had to keep going!

So some of the things that annoyed me, were the short chapters, they didn't need to be so short. Another is that chapters ended in ... sometimes, to increase suspense, but it just increased my annoyance, it wasn't needed. The titles and acronyms, there were too many to keep track of. And the slang, it made no sense to me,so I was confused as to what they meant, and its not supposed to be like that!

I enjoyed each book just a bit more then the previous one, though I won't be reading more of this series. I enjoyed it, but reading these books was just a little too difficult. But I'm glad that each book was shorter, more condensed,and better written, which is why I enjoyed them more and more!

The main element of these books are the mysteries, which were pretty great! I, like Kate, didn't like the dad of the kidnapped girl in the second book, but yeah, he was OK in the end! I enjoyed hoe these books wrapped up!

Pretty great books, and how the people and their lives changed as the books went on was great, and I enjoyed these books! Just not as much as I hoped.
