Review: The Fortune Teller by Gwendolyn Womack


May Contain Spoilers

When I was approached about reviewing this title, I was torn.  I am completely swamped with review books, and I was hesitant to add yet another commitment to my already full schedule. But I saw that part of the book takes place in my favorite time period, Ancient Egypt, and I couldn’t say no.  I’m glad I read the book. It was enjoyable, and I wouldn’t have picked it up otherwise, as it was nowhere on my radar. Read more

Review by Poo Penny

Wow. I read a few reviews, and knew this was a little…. dark, but I was not expecting such graphic detail! But would the book have been as good without it? I don’t know. I was engrossed in this story once the shock factor kicked in anyway.

The chapters that were the father’s POV were beautifully written. They were filled with so much emotion, it almost felt like I shouldn’t be reading them.

Can I admit to you that I am lonely?

Review: Ultimate Courage by Piper J Drake

May Contain Spoilers

I was really enjoying this until the end, when Alex ditches Elisa in her moment of need. He knows that a crazy stalker is after her, and he abandons her without a concern for her well-being, after losing his sh$t when he hears a rumor about her. I thought that there was more trust and substance to their relationship by that time, that he knew and understood all of the awful things she was forced to do until she could make a break for freedom after escaping from her cruel, controlling fiancé. But, nope, he didn’t even give her the benefit of that doubt.

ULTIMATE COURAGE Banner

 

LOVE IS AN ACT OF BRAVERY

Retired Navy SEAL Alex Rojas is putting his life back together, one piece at a time. Being a single dad to his young daughter and working at Hope’s Crossing Kennels to help rehab a former guard dog, he struggles every day to control his PTSD. But when Elisa Hall shows up, on the run and way too cautious, she unleashes his every protective instinct.

Elisa’s past never stays in her rearview mirror for long, and she refuses to put anyone else in danger. But with Alex guarding her so fiercely yet looking at her so tenderly, she’s never felt safer . . . or more terrified that the secrets she keeps could put countless people in grave peril. The only way for both to fully escape their demons will take the ultimate act of courage: letting go and learning to trust each other.
