I have become a fan of Trace Conger and the Finn Series and after reading The Prison Guard's Son I am happy to so that I still am. I will admit that the third in the series moved a bit slower than I was used to from reading Mr. Conger's work but I do understand that the author had to build the story up and lay the foundation so let me tell you that it was worth the wait, in the end, The Prison Guard's son is a great addition to the Finn Series, I look forward to reading more of his work and hopefully reading more of Finn's adventures.

The Harvest by Rod Stewart is my first read by this author and I was immediately pulled in! He paints a vivid picture of the world that Rain a grief-stricken divorcee and mother of a slain son intermingled with Face a reputed underworld drug lord. It was an interesting twist of mixing them together and placing Rain in a "fish out of water" scenario. My only drawback is that it was drawn out of 3 books it may have made it longer but I am not a fan of cliffhangers wish it would have been all in one title other than that it is still a 5 star read!

I've been wanting to read this book for a while so last week I finally purchased it, before reading it I scrolled through some of the reviews to see what others thought of the title. A lot of people commented that he was super heavy on Black/white aspect of the character or "too woke" so I went in reading with a grain of salt.

Right from the jump, he hits you in the face with a lot of consciousness and I'm cool with that but as the story goes on I can see why some would feel like he's heavy-handed with some of the "rhetoric". I noticed it but still no true issue, I took personal feelings out of the equation and thought maybe these characters spoke to him in this fashion because of the times that we are living in and this is his way to document the times, or he may or may not have shared some of the beliefs of the characters and the way they view the world, doesn't matter here nor there I related because I've held some of these conversations myself.

My true issue was it took a long wh...

He roped me in with this tale of heroism and magic which says a lot being that I am not particularly a reader of this particular genre, the author paints such vivid pictures with his words I found it very easy to become engrossed in this world of mysticism and mayhem. The world-building and fleshing of the characters was remarkable it felt as if I were watching a movie this is a 5* read highly recommended!

Alissa and Dana are inseparable and their love for each other is deadly. The story of these two friends is well. The storyline is exciting from start to finish.

This is the first title that I've read by this author and I must say that I am impressed! From the first page, I was drawn in and hooked until the very end! This most definitely is a 5 STAR READ!

My first time reading this author and although I did like the story it took a really long time to get to the good stuff. I would recommend reading if you have patience.

This would be the fourth title that I've read by this author and I had no doubt that I would enjoy the read! The author does a marvelous job of painting a picture of an urban/cozy/legal mystery. I like her tone and the way the clues are revealed the characters are well developed and relatable. Great read!

Laugh Now by Rahiem Brooks is my first title by this author that I've read. Rahiem Brooks tackled a subject that is affecting millions, and I enjoy how he showed the in and outs of identity theft from the perspective of Kareem. The Bezel brothers are a force to reckoned with. At times, I did not have a true connection with the novel and found it hard to follow. Laugh Now was a decent read. After reading the synopsis I have to admit I had expected more my expectations were high. It took me a while to finish this book it was a bit slow for my taste. I felt satisfied once I completed the story it serves as a good reference of what to avoid when trying not to become a victim of identity theft.

The story is about deception, deceit, blackmail, loyalty and a whole lot of living it up.
As a debut author, I will say Mr. Brooks definitely has a storytelling ability where I think there are a few things missing and a few things that could have been changed around or not in the story at all. He pu...

Scar Tissue by Trace Conger the 2nd book in the Mr. Finn title was really good! It is the 2nd title that I've read by this author and it did not disappoint. It started off a bit slow for my taste but as it moved on I understood why the author took the pace that took for the story. I really enjoyed it, now I'm off to read the third installment! Happy Reading.

This is my first read by this author and I was not impressed. It wasn't horrible, I finished the whole book, yet it wasn't very impressive either. I liked the fact that it went straight into action from the beginning. I thought that I may have liked the characters but I never got to know any of them, not even the main protagonist. The plot and the characters needed to be fleshed out more. Reading this was like watching an action movie, sure I love witty one-liners, shooting, and stuff blowing up but if you are looking for a plot driven story line you won't find it here.

Bullet to the Heart is my second read by this author and I must admit that I enjoyed this one a lot better than the previous one that I read. The tale of a bad guy turned good, turned bad to seek revenge for the loss of a loved one is a familiar tale but Elijah does a good job having his go at it.

When I read the synopsis to Forty Acres I was instantly intrigued by the premise of the title, my mind automatically went to a dark place. I expected the book to be dark, violent, and overcast. Though it had sprinklings acts of violence it was not a major playing point in the story.

I think that the author did a great job of his telling his story of "what if" and the way that the different characters especially the protagonist reacted to different scenarios was very believable. I don't know if I was just anxious to get to the plantation aspect of the story or if it was a slow start but the beginning of the story didn't move as fast as I would have liked.

I won't give away any of the story but I will say it was definitely worth the time spent reading and I will read more of his work.

This was my first time reading a title by this author and I was somewhat entertained, it took a while to get to the meat of the story which was a bit of a put off for my taste. It was descriptive and engaging just took a while to get there. I would suggest this author to those that have more patience than I do.
