Hello to all,

                  While i shared my opinion with you about Janie Crouch new series i discovered that i never told you the book that started my enthousiasm about this author's writing so better late than never here comes my opinion on Special Force Savior (  you can get it free on Janie's website)

Description from goodreads :

  He has to shut down the terrorists or lose everything. Including the woman who's become a target.

Omega Sector: Critical Response agent Derek Waterman is hunting some very bad men. After weeks of chasing cold leads, he has found the evidence that could expose the architects of a lethal terrorist bombing. But before Derek can start busting bad guys, he needs help from Dr. Molly Humphries, Omega's lead forensic scientist.

Molly works to retrieve the data—and overcome her debilitating crush on the super agent. And Derek carefully suppresses his mutual smoldering attraction, sure that his dark past will drive Molly away. But when Molly's kidnapped, Derek will stop at nothing to save her. Even if a lethal enemy will do everything to keep him from doing so.




My opinion:
          I was looking for a good romance suspense when i came across this one and it's so good i want to continue the series even if this is a stand alone. Really it was super, the investigation, the characters all fit perfectly so that you were immersed in the story and not wanting to make a break but you could still take one if needed without feeling distressed.

Molly is a character i love, she is stronger than she looks, she is compassionate, intelligent and also vulnerable. She is important for the team even if she doesn't exactly see herself as part of it while staying in the lab. She puts her work before her life because for her each case is important...
Derek i want to strangle him a bit but with all he is confronted to i will allow him a reprieve^^ i mean he is deeply attracted to Molly but wants to take his distance for her wellbeing without in fact thinking about what she could be feeling  even once...worse he tends to redo the same mistake even after seeing what he did. he has good intentions though and he is really loyal going all the way to save her.

The whole team is interesting but this really focus on Derek and Molly so Liam and Jon are  a little put aside but hopefully they will get their time as they are courageous and funny!

The investigation was well done with a lot of twists and even better....vilains get what they deserve! i love when they don't get it easy after all the evil they have done.

really a good romance suspense to recommend



Score:  4/5

Cyclone (Linear Tactical 1) by Janie Crouch

Hello to all,


i wanted to get this sooner to you but i felt this book deserved me in good shape not barely hanging on 2h of sleep like i had the previous day so i'm late and i'm sorry for that.

This is a new series called Linear Tactical from Janie crouch and as you may have discovered by now i really enjoy her books but this one could be my favourite now so i should better give you my opinion on it without more delay.


Happy reading!

Description from goodreads :

 He’d protect her from any threat…
But what if the biggest threat is him?

Doctor Anne Nichols is back in Oak Creek, Wyoming, only because she has no other options. Here, she was always the shy, stuttering girl, invisible to everyone.

Except Zac Mackay. The very reason she left in the first place.

Zac’s years in Special Forces taught him survival skills, and he’s created a company—Linear Tactical—to teach those skills to others, so they never have to live in fear.

Then why is Annie, the last person he’d ever want to hurt, afraid of him?

Zac’s determined to wipe the fear from the eyes of the woman who has never been far from his mind. And fix the mistakes—his mistakes—that put that look there in the first place.


But a predator has set his sights on Annie. And now survival skills will become much more than lessons…




My opinion:
          Very good book that deserve reading in one sitting.....so i'm more than glad to have taken the time because the tension at some point had me glued to the book not caring the time. It's an excellent start for a new series...we got to learn a little about the other members of the team which i'm sure we will meet again later - i'm quite fond of poor suffering Dorian, Finn i like but until i learn more about his history i keep reservation-.

In this story we focus on Zac , ex military, founder of Linear tactical...who got his share of unfairness and suffering while loosing his wife and son for example. That could have made him revenful but no and i admire that.....he sure has faults but deep down he is a very good man with excellent teaching skills.
Soon after his wife death he made an error......and forgot the worst of it...however when Anne appears after 6y he isn't expecting fear in her eyes and definitively plan to learn the why and correct the situation.

Anne was best friend with Becky, Zac's wife, since school....;she is shy and despite having and hard childhood she grow up to be a strong woman and an excellent doctor. She always loved studying and books so beside Becky and Zac she was nearly invisible to others when they were not joking because she had a speech problem. However, in his grief Zac hurt her more than she could have imagined and she took his words to heart and flew to another state never planning to be back...life decided otherwise and she is trying to make the most of it.  Seeing Zac after all that time terrifies her  but soon she must face worse as a rapist is on the loose and while she is helping victims, Zac works on finding the culprit...proximity makes it hard to keep secrets....

Really the story is captivating and the tension, the violence is well balanced with the cute moments like the puppies or the exchanges between Zac and his best friends/brothers.

i've read this in one sitting and really i can't wait for next book to be out! If you want a great romance suspense this is one for you.

Hello to all,

I will do my best to get back on track as soon as possible but for today let share the third book in the series Beyond Human by Nina Croft. I have read and reviewed the first two but this one is probably the most gripping one so i'm glad i could read it in one sitting.


Happy reading!!!

Description from goodreads :

 Quinn Sutherland, second in command of the Tribe, a group of powerful telepaths, has always been certain of who and what he is — one of the good guys. All he wants is to keep his friends safe — no easy feat when everyone in the world is after them. While on a rescue mission, he meets a mysterious FBI agent, who appears to know a lot about them, and seems to want the same thing he does. But her assignment could literally mean the death of him…


When Melody Lyons is inducted into the Federation’s elite Time Control Unit, it’s the pinnacle of her ambitions. Only when she’s sent back to the twenty-first century to eliminate a group of rogue time travelers, she never guesses she’ll fall for a man who died two thousand years ago… Quinn awakens emotions she hadn’t known existed, and for the first time, her loyalties are tested.



My opinion:
          Facinating!!! i really loved this book it follow the series completely so it's really better read in order but could catch the interest even if you are new to the series thanks to the  info given to secondary characters that creates the whole background story we need to understand the story. It was captivating!
Quinn is a character i love; he is honest and really a good soul so all the treachery really hit him hard. He is dedicated to keep his friends safe but with enemies turning allies and the opposite it's getting harder and harder.
When he meets Mel, he does think she is from the good side and while he want to trust her the fact he can't  get into her mind make him doubt he can while the attraction is more than present....

Melody is a hard working woman, she did all she could to achieve her dreams and she succeeded so following the rules are capital for her but while meeting Quinn she discovers feelings, forgotten in the future, and the rules.....to save him she is willing to go against them if necessary.

I really loved to continue the series and we go deeper in the story each time....this time we learn more about the past and about the future and if it get confusing for the characters i admit it can also be the case for the reader so many possibilities or consequences...hard to know what should be done or not but we do enjoy the ride a lot^^

The rhythm is perfect, we meet or learn about precedent characters so the links isn't broken, it's a rollercoaster of emotions and really  it was perfect only the cliffhanger at the end was a bit too hard for me^^ so i can't wait for next book that won't be released soon enough i fear^^

Score:  4/5

In the Lawman 's protection ( Omega sector: under siege 6) by Janie Crouch

Hello to all,


                2018 does not seem to be my year with how life keep interfering in my plans to give me more troubles...nothing i won't survive but i admit reading about strong characters can be a good motivation for not giving up.

Today i'm sharing with you my opinion on the 6th book in the Omega sector: under siege series by Janie Crouch....i still haven't gotten book3 (i sure hope i will soon) but i have loved all the rest of the series and this finale is quite the top! i couldn't have hoped for a better story to add to this series.

But enough teasing and let see that in more details. Happy Reading!

Description from goodreads :

  An agent will do anything to take down a terrorist.

Even if that means using a woman as his weapon.

To locate a terrorist, Ren McClement must find the criminal’s “dead” wife Natalie. His plan: use the innocent beauty as bait. But when his duplicity leads them into grave danger, Ren reveals his secret to Natalie...and his passion for her. Will furious Natalie be able to forgive his lie? And will they get to the mastermind before he unleashes mass destruction?




My opinion:
          Ren is a fantastic character, we learned about him a little before in the series but  he has a complex personality and his life is full of mysteries since he spent most of it undercover. I really enjoyed learning more about him and to see him act as well....he is really the perfect match for someone like Nathalie

Nathalie has fear deeply set in her bones...beside psychological  trauma, her body as well as her psyche show the traces of Damien torture.... she took the opportunity she saw to flee but she never felt free always terrified he would find her again....but no matter how much she suffered...deep inside she is still a good person, she shows compassion and when she can help other she does...it's really telling how courageous she is.

This story was all i wanted it to be...there was tension, moments where i cried, moments where i laughed all together with the Damien arc coming to an end and while i love this series it was really time for him to meet his fate and for the rest of the characters to be able to breathe a little...
It was a page turner from the beginning and if this could work as a standalone i prefer to recommend you to read it in order so you have a deeper insight of what the characters have suffered to help understand how far they are willing to go to succeed. It's said they suffered yes but it's it's too light explanation for what they really endured so this series is better read in order for sure.

It's a great romance with a excellent dose of suspense so i recommend it without any hesitation or doubt!

Score:  5/5

Frenchman Street (The Sentinel of New Orleans book 6) by Suzanne Johnson

Hello to all,

 it's by a sunny sunday that i have the great pleasure to announce you that  yes the final book of the Sentinel of New Orleans arc is out!!
There isn't a thing i hate more than having a series unfinished so we can be really grateful that the author decided to publish it to offer us a little closure ...yes we waited but it was more than worth it as the series get the story of the same quality or one even better as it dserves it.

So i won't be much longer but first a little note: if you haven't started the series yet or if you are missing some books just keep you eyes on the author blog some great opportunities will blossom extra soon. ( check that here)

Now...the story, happy reading!!

Description from goodreads :

 The uneasy truce between the preternatural species of New Orleans has shattered, with wizards and elves, shifters and vampires—not to mention the historical undead—struggling for ultimate control of the city, including the humans who still think they’re atop the food chain.

They aren’t, however—and the Summer Prince of Faerie wants them to know it.

Stuck in the middle? One unemployed wizard sentinel. For DJ Jaco, war makes for strange bedfellows as she finally embraces her wizard-elven heritage and strikes a deal with the devil so she and her ragtag band of allies can return to defend her hometown. After all, when the undead French pirate Jean Lafitte is working in the mayor’s tourism department, things could go horribly wrong.

War is coming to New Orleans just in time for Mardi Gras, with the elves and wizards lined up on opposite sides, the shifters with a new leader, the vampires promising loyalty to the highest bidder, and the soul of the Crescent City resting on the outcome of the civil war going on in Faerie between the rival princes of summer and winter.

Mardi Gras Day is approaching fast, the faeries have infiltrated almost every parade, and the line between friends and enemies grows thin as DJ tries to stave off open warfare on the St. Charles Avenue parade route.

Laissez les bons temps rouler…but be careful, or the good times might roll too close for comfort. 


My opinion:
          Fabulous, a rollercoaster for emotions as once the story picks up there isn't a slow moment left there will be tears, there will be touching moment, there will be some humorous one and some very angsty ones. We are immersed in an adventure that doesn't allow us a reprieve we must know what will happen and we better not get interrupted for nothing ^^;;

We sure waited to get  the end of Dj adventures in this arc  but it was so, so well worth it... a real page turner with old characters we meet again with pleasure  like some fae hunters ( love faulkner) new one  like Gruff a so cute and funny corgi but so much more and i don't want to spoil too much . But get some tissues near you will need them and the little Corgi isn't the only one who will win you over i'm sure like Pen who can make you swoon or laugh depending on his menu.

Really this was a great read, we get to see how the events impacted the characters and how some got more mature and some not. There are twists to keep us on edge and this story couldn't be a better way to end this arc ( because yes i certainly hope to see more of the gang but rest assured there isn't a cliffhanger or questions unanswered ( at least not any that can't wait a full novella^^)

So yes it's better to have read the series to enjoy this one fully  and i can't recommend you this series strong enough but that being said it should be possible to read this one like that as we get enough info about the background to understand most of what happen but you if have teh opportunity to start by book 1 don't hesitate it just get better and better.

Score:  5/5

Short description from goodreads :

 Is the woman he once loved…

The traitor they’re searching for?

Former Special Forces soldier Jace Eakin must find the mole inside Omega who’s leaking intel to a terrorist mastermind. Despite their complicated history and the fact that she is keeping a secret, he can’t believe it’s SWAT team leader Lillian Muir. As they give in to long-denied passion, Jace vows to protect Lillian with his life. But he’s been wrong about her before…



My opinion:
          So captivating, i always liked Lillian but i wouldn't have guessed such a traumatic past....a difficult one yes.....so much torture no; so i was really happy to get an insight on her life before it happened and after as well as learning what made her the warrior she is..
Jace is a wonderful character, very open to other and i loved his life plans to help others it really suit him and it's exactly what Lillian needs a strong man not fearing that she may be even stronger than him

Tension and suspense is really high in this instalment and  it's a real page turner, i loved that beside the events of this book between Lillian and Jace we made progress on the red line and on the villains. The author made twists we were not expecting and we can't wait to see the end of Damien

Good stand alone but so much better if you read the series in order.

Score:  5/5

But her secrets could tear them apart…

Hayley Green never wanted to see Omega special agent Cain Bennett again. Ever. He seduced her, then sent her to prison for hacking, and Hayley’s only just started piecing her life back together. Except now Cain needs Hayley’s help to catch a murderer. Their past is colliding with their still-smoldering attraction…and the only thing more dangerous than the killer is the secrets Hayley’s been keeping.

Omega Sector: Under Siege


My opinion:
          Very interesting and good stand alone even if i did feel like i missed some elements by not reading book 3 yet ( will do soon)
i really loved how Cain and Hayley got over their issues step by step despites all what was happening around them...they both tried to do well in their own way .Hayley is strong and protective, she is also aware of her faults and i really appreciated that about her.
Cain is a good man, he never expected to hurt Hayley as much and he is ready to help her when she needs it the most and i particularly loved how appreciative he was of her skills not taking shame of being less talented in that domain than her and seeing a bit of Ashton and Chloe that was simply too cute!

a very good installment in the Omega series


Score:  4,5/5
