About Book


Most high school sports teams have rivalries with other schools. At Hamilton High, it's a civil war: the football team versus the soccer team. And for her part,Lissa is sick of it. Her quarterback boyfriend, Randy, is always ditching her to go pick a fight with the soccer team or to prank their locker room. And on three separate occasions Randy's car has been egged while he and Lissa were inside, making out. She is done competing with a bunch of sweaty boys for her own boyfriend's attention

Then Lissa decides to end the rivalry once and for all: She and the other players' girlfriends go on a hookup strike. The boys won't get any action from them until the football and soccer teams make peace. What they don't count on is a new sort of rivalry: an impossible girls-against-boys showdown that hinges on who will cave to their libidos first. But what Lissa never sees coming is her own sexual tension with the leader of the boys, Cash Sterling..







 

My Thoughts and Review 



I first heard about this book from a friend and just had to get it after looking into it a bit. That day I got it in E-book format and was done with it in about 2 hours. I loved it, it was a teenager’s outlook on high school and boys and friendship.


So this book ill give 4/5 stars.





Lissa was a control freak who has major OCD issues. She was beautiful and strong and just set in her way.





Cash….well I would totally like to date him. The school flirt, totally hot but you cant get anywhere with  him. By the end i was in-love.





Randy, well words really cant describe how much I dislike him. He comes off as the nice caring boyfriend but really just is a complete a**.





Chloe, she’s Lissa’s best friend and is known as the school sl*t but really just because she’s honest about her s*x life doesn’t mean she is any of the things people call her. She isn’t ready to settle down with a guy and just knows what she likes, she isn’t mean about it and is a lovely person who would do anything for her friend. She would have to be my second favorite character.





Now down to my final character who happens to be my favorite. Nothing much is said about her but I feel like I must tell people the little bit about her because she is so worth hearing about, Mary. Her name says it all, she’s sweet and young and totally in love with her huge footballer boyfriend. She’s the only girl who is honest about herself. Throughout this book she’s a small role but I just love how caring and sweet and young she is and how she reminds me of that little sister I have to protect from everything bad.



So go ahead and give this book a read because its fun, light and really enjoyable.

Book Review for Eyes of the Predator The Pickham County Murders by Glenn Trust







Eyes of the Predator The Pickham County Murders

by

4 stars

 Reviewed by:Tonya
 Format:Kindle
Source: purchased copy
 Published:Glenn Trust
Genre:Mystery Thriller





About Book

***For Mature Readers***
Eyes scanning, searching, the predator sits motionless in a parking lot. His next victim is only feet away. Within hours a backwater south Georgia county will be rocked by two seemingly unrelated murders that signal the arrival of a serial killer in the rural southland.

Hunting the killer and preventing the next brutal murder falls to a plainspoken country deputy and two agents of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI). The chase leads north from the swamps along the Florida line to the foothills of the Appalachians.

GBI agents Bob Shaklee and Sharon Price know that Deputy George Mackey is a natural hunter and if anyone can find the sadistic killer, Mackey can. But Mackey, haunted by his own demons can only wonder if he will be late again. It is his greatest fear.

 
My Thoughts and Review 

I have to say this was a very good thriller book and for a first novel job well done Glenn.

The author pays a lot of attention to detail in this book, crafting each character so that you feel like you know them personally. He lays out the bad guy Lylee for you and you can just about see his crimes through his eyes from the authors writing. Its like you can feel what the victims went through.

Each character has their own storyline within this book and I like how he goes back and forth between each characters ongoing life story but yet they all work, they flow seamlessly into the makings of a very great murder, who don't it, Good cops chasing the bad guy and even a hero or two in there.

I have to say that my favorite character of course was Deputy George Mackey I could feel his guilt and driving need to catch this bad guy. And I really loved how he even wrote in a really down right mean Sheriff only out to protect his position with an upcoming re-election and had him gunning for Deputy Mackey throughout the entire story. But trust me when I say he gets his in the end.

About Book


Before Peter Pan belonged to Wendy, he belonged to the girl with the crow feather in her hair. . . .

Fifteen-year-old Tiger Lily doesn't believe in love stories or happy endings. Then she meets the alluring teenage Peter Pan in the forbidden woods of Never-land and immediately falls under his spell.

Peter is unlike anyone she's ever known. Impetuous and brave, he both scares and enthralls her. As the leader of the Lost Boys, the most fearsome of Never-land's inhabitants, Peter is an unthinkable match for Tiger Lily. Soon, she is risking everything—her family, her future—to be with him. When she is faced with marriage to a terrible man in her own tribe, she must choose between the life she's always known and running away to an uncertain future with Peter.

With enemies threatening to tear them apart, the lovers seem doomed. But it's the arrival of Wendy Darling, an English girl who's everything Tiger Lily is not, that leads Tiger Lily to discover that the most dangerous enemies can live inside even the most loyal and loving heart.

From the New York Times bestselling author of Peaches comes a magical and bewitching story of the romance between a fearless heroine and the boy who wouldn't grow up.


My Thoughts and Review 


All in all I loved this book, it was fantastically written that was dark and twisted and sad. Yet ,I loved how it questioned everything I thought I loved and gave me something new to replace it.This book is now in my top 10 favorite books of all time because it did everything a book is meant to do,I cried laughed and just sat in shock when it was over wishing I could go back and relive it for the first time again.After reading it three times I managed to be able to put it down and recommended to those around me (never could because my friends have different tastes in books) so I give it 5 out of 5 stars.Amazing execution,fantastically written and a flawless group of characters we all love yet giving them a real feeling to them.

Professor Theo Cuto is in a race to find what he believes would be the biggest find of the century, the polar ice cap has melted over Greenland, not just melted completely disappeared one day it was there, then it was gone. He turns to long time backer Saul the director for the Chicago Museum of Antiquities for backing. After some back and forth Saul agrees on the condition that his girlfriend Gillian who works in the museums research department goes along "to keep Theo in line". Theo reluctantly agrees - he prefers to work alone.

Once in Greenland and at the site he had already planned out he and Gillian begin to rappel down into a cavern he believes was carved out over thousands of years as water would drain off from the ice packs. He believes it will take him into caverns that may be where people once lived long forgotten through the years. Suddenly the earth shifts violently and Theo and Gillian are in a race to not only stay alive but find a way out.

Old myths believed to just be stories come true, the government wants to hush things up and Theo and Gillian want to stay alive.

Oh and I almost forgot Theo has a thing for Gillian but does she have one for him? Get the book today and find out. This really is a great read.

Praise for The Seventh Seal...

"I think folks who enjoy apocalyptic fiction will like this story. It's intense, it's not pretty, and it was a good story. Definitely check it out."
K. Sozaeva, Amazon Vine Voice, Top 500 Reviewer

"What if the morning after was also the End of the World? That's what happens to J. Thorn's protagonist in this edgy take on the End of Days. What emerges is an edge-of-your seat apocalyptic adventure full of twists and turns. I couldn't put it down! This is an edgy book, however, and not without controversy. If you don't like your religion or your world view to be challenged, then proceed with caution!"

Vicki Keire, Author of Worlds Burn Through

"It makes you gasp at every turn...J. Thorn does an amazing job of flipping every preconception on its head!"

My Thoughts and Review

I wouldn't say this was the best end of times book that I have read but it is also not the worst. I did like the premise behind it with a religious fanatical group and the military working together as one to take over America and perform what they call a cleansing. Killing off what they consider infidels, men, women, children it didn't matter. One man after a night of Halloween partying is spared because he is wearing a priest outfit and is believed to be John the Revelator. Before he wakes up into this horribly changed state he had broken his vows, though being drugged, he still feels the guilt and now believes his wife has found out.

The entire book is about him trying to get away from this group, to find his wife, and at the same time not knowing if she survived this cleansing. All the while she is trying to find him not knowing if he is alive. Little do either know forces are using both of them for their own motives.

If you can't stomach violence then this one is not for you there is some pretty graphic violent writing within these pages. But I will say that whenever writings from the book of Revelations were written within the pages of this book I could easily pick up my bible and compare them and not be disappointed. I for one do not like it when a writer takes liberty with his writing to the point of changing what the bible says.

Like I said it was a decent enough read that I will read the novella when it comes out I would like to see if John and Alex hook back up with Johns wife and what happens at the end of this book.
