#Review of Where Danger Lies (The Jake Bernstein FBI Series Book 3) by Donna Del Oro w/a rafflecopter giveaway!

Where Danger Lies

by Donna Del Oro

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Romantic suspense

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Based on actual circumstances, two cases prove that truth is indeed stranger than fiction as FBI Special agent, Jake Bernstein, is pulled into two apparently unrelated cases while on medical leave in San Diego.  A female officer assigned to Naval Base Coronado is killed and a Muslim woman is viciously beaten and left for dead. Jake knows about seeking truth and justice amid lies and deception. He suspects something else is at work, two very different evils overlapping as two different worlds violently collide.

Meg Larsen has come to terms with Jake’s role in her beloved grandmother’s death, accepts that he has a dangerous job, and is proud of his role in thwarting terrorists who threatened countless lives. She’s willing to aid him in his investigations but not so accepting of his refusal to commit to her and give her a reason to alter her career plans.

Even as Jake arrives at a crossroads in his relationship with Meg, he must stay alert and strive to keep both of them safe.  Although San Diego is sunny and picture-perfect, you never know…WHERE DANGER LIES.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Excerpt One:

“NCIs? What’s the crime, Admiral Snider?”

“Murder. One of the officers on my ship. I think an objective look is needed.”

“What happened to him?”

“Her. Lieutenant Samantha Carlton was found dead in the trunk of her car three days ago. The preliminary tox screen showed nothing, but the lab did an advanced analysis. She’d been poisoned with ketamine. Made her heart stop. She was forty-one and in excellent physical condition. Also, someone crushed her larynx and windpipe.”

“Sounds like a case of overkill.” Jake rubbed the underside of his chin from force of habit. Intriguing case but he really didn’t want to get involved. “Perhaps premeditated, but made to look like a crime of passion or rage? That’d be my off-the-cuff assessment.”

“Good, now we’re getting somewhere,” Rear Admiral Snider said. “The local cops are pushing the NCI team in one direction. Their theory doesn’t hold water, that it was a hate crime. Lieutenant Carlton was gay, but more importantly, she had access to classified guided missile codes.”

“Understood,” Jake said, shaking his head. National security was at issue here. Even unofficially, he was already involved.

 

Okay.  Somehow I missed the second book in the series.  Seriously, I missed it.  I read the first one and LOVED it.  Jake is like my second ultimate boyfriend, next to Jack Ryan.  Which I compared the two in my earlier review and I still by it today.

I really liked this installment.  I will have to say that I felt like some things were missing but that’s only because I haven’t read the second book.  Ms. Del Oro did a good job of filling in the blanks but for this reader, I still miss having to fill in the gaps.  This one starts off with a bang and really doesn’t let up.  I loved Jake’s new job and what it means to him.  Meg, on the other hand, is a bit slower in coming to grips with it.  In fact, Meg in this installment kinda got on my nerves.  She didn’t trust Jake when he was gone.  I get the fact that she is coming to terms with Jake’s role with her grandmother but if she really wants a relationship with Jake, she really needs to learn to trust him.

The book is told in Jake’s POV which I LOVE.  Not many romantic suspense books are written in the hero’s POV so it’s interesting to get his thoughts and feelings.  Plus, he really does want things to work with Meg but it’s hard when she doesn’t make it easy for him.  The suspense in the book is top notch.  Not too over the top and realistic, too.  The way that Ms. Del Oro wove both plots is brilliant.  This is one of those times that I didn’t see certain things coming and it kept me guessing until the end.

Overall, another solid book with my book boyfriend, Jake.  I need to get the second book to fill in some of the gaps and well…just because.  It’s Jake Bernstein!  *swoon*

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

Donna Del Oro’s dream since childhood (when she used to create her own comic books and share them with her friends) has been to write fiction. Escaping the humdrum of ordinary life always seemed to her an ideal form of self-entertainment. Better than TV and even better than some books! As soon as she retired from high school teaching (which was a suspenseful adventure in itself), Donna turned to fiction writing. Becoming a member of the RWA and Sisters in Crime has helped her to learn the craft and focus on what she needed to do to get published.

 

Besides writing Chica Lit, she writes romantic suspense and thrillers. Her two latest SMART ROMANTIC THRILLERS are: A BODYGUARD OF LIES, LIES IN WAIT (Book Two) and a paranormal thriller, THE DELPHI BLOODLINE. A BODYGUARD OF LIES takes place in present-day England, Ireland and Germany with echoes back to WW II. A Jewish-American FBI agent, who’s fluent in German, goes undercover to investigate an elderly, naturalized American grandmother, suspected of being a Nazi spy and war criminal. LIES IN WAIT follows FBI agent, Jake Bernstein (now a member of a CounterTerrorism Task Force), to Silicon Valley. Working undercover as a Muslim biotech scientist, he is recruited to join a sleeper cell intent on terrorist activities. All three of her published thrillers remain on Musa Publishing’s mystery imprint’s Top Twenty Bestselling books.

#Review of Second Chance in Laguna (Finding Forever in Laguna series #1) by Claire Marti w/a rafflecopter giveaway! @clairepmarti

Second Chance in Laguna

by Claire Marti

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Contemporary Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

When Sophie Barnes’s fiancé jilts her at the altar, her carefully planned life implodes. Considering her ex’s betrayal to be a rude wake-up call, she leaves everything she knows in San Diego and flees to Laguna Beach. She vows to transform her life by avoiding men for a year and by fulfilling her dream of writing a wildly successful novel.  

Sophie’s new landlord, Nicholas Morgan, is a gorgeous, successful architect with a player reputation. He makes it tough for Sophie to remember that she’s sworn to be single. Nick’s avoided the intimacy of a long-term relationship–until Sophie’s independence, courage, and beauty touch his guarded heart. Both Sophie and Nick are terrified of being hurt again, but can they resist the pull of true love?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Excerpt One:

Nick arrived right on time, looking gorgeous in faded jeans and a plain white t-shirt. How did he always manage to start the butterflies fluttering in her stomach? Just by standing there with the setting sun framing him? She was in trouble.

“Hi beautiful, ready to go?” He clasped her face in his hands and planted a soft kiss on her lips.

Returning his kiss, Sophie wound her arms around his neck and deepened it. She couldn’t resist. His strong arms wrapped around her waist, hugging her close to his broad chest.

“Mmmm, feel free to greet me like that every time I come over,” he said, lips curved up into a sweet smile.

Heat washed her cheeks and she returned his smile. “Let’s go. Prepare to be blown away by the movie snack of the century.”

Determined to keep things light and enjoy the movie before “the talk,” Sophie thrust down the lick of panic bubbling in her gut. She’d accomplished next to nothing all afternoon, instead wrestling with whether she needed to tell him about Doug.

The angel on her shoulder whispered to tell him because if they were going to have any kind of relationship, even a friends-with-benefits one, honesty and trust were vital. The devil urged her to zip it. They’d only known each other a few weeks. What if he lived up to his “Player of Laguna” reputation and expected only a fun fling? Even though he seemed deeper than that. What if she scared him off with a premature talk?

Welcome Claire Marti! Please start off by telling us a little about yourself.

 

My name is Claire Marti and I live in Encinitas, California, a sleepy beach town about twenty-five miles north of San Diego. I’ve been writing stories since I was a child. I majored in English at the University of Virginia, practiced law briefly, and transitioned into teaching yoga and writing full-time over the last few years.

My debut novel, Second Chance in Laguna, launched on March 31, 2017. The story grew from themes of starting over, carpe diem, and of living life to the fullest.

Is Second Chance in Laguna a single title, or part of a series?

Second Chance in Laguna is the first in the Finding Forever in Laguna series. It’s a contemporary romance set in, surprise, Laguna Beach, California. At Last in Laguna, the second book in the series will release later in 2017, and Sunset in Laguna, the third book should launch in early 2018.

What were your inspirations for the story?

Taking a negative experience like learning that the person you love is a serial cheater and turning it into an opportunity to transform your entire life. I love the idea of a new door opening when another one closes. Life is a cycle of growth—we’re always changing and learning. My heroine in Second Chance in Laguna, Sophie Barnes, is jilted at the altar and it’s a wake-up call for her. She realizes she isn’t living her most authentic life and takes a risk to follow her dreams.

Please share your setting for (book title). Have you ever lived or visited there? If so, what did you like most?

As you might guess from the title, the setting is Laguna Beach, California. I chose the setting because of its romantic atmosphere. With its gorgeous green hills, charming architecture, breathtaking beaches, and proliferation of art galleries, Laguna feels like a sanctuary. The first time I visited the tiny beach enclave, I felt transported to a magical new world.

On a personal note, Laguna holds a special place in my heart: I got engaged on the beach there. My passion for Laguna fuels my writing and hopefully sparks the same enthusiasm in readers.

When did the writing bug first bite?

I was a voracious reader at a young age. Writing came naturally for me and I started writing stories in elementary school. We rescued a baby squirrel and I fell in love with Squeaky. Naturally, he deserved a book. My cat Tom and my brother’s boa constrictor, Napoleon Bonaparte, each also starred in a book. Second Chance in Laguna features a rescue dog named Bailey and cat named Zack.

Who are you favorite authors, book/series?

Nora Roberts: Gallagher’s of Ardmore trilogy, Irish Born trilogy, Key trilogy, Three Sisters trilogy—did I mention I love her trilogies?

Kerrigan Byrne: Victorian Rebels series,

Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast and The Sun Also Rises,

Jane Austen, Ayn Rand, Julie James, Lisa Kleypas, Sarah Maclean

If you could have an author roundtable discussion with any authors, who would you invite?

Nora Roberts, Ernest Hemingway, Oscar Wilde, Kerrigan Byrne, J.R. Ward, Sarah MacLean, and Anne Rice.

Do you have any hobbies or special things you like to do in your spare time?

I love walking on the beach every day, reading, listening to live music, traveling every chance I get, practicing and teaching yoga, and spending time with my husband and friends. I love delicious food, as long as someone else prepares it!

What’s the strangest thing you’ve heard or seen?

A few years ago, we visited The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado. It’s the place that inspired Stephen King’s terrifying story, The Shining. You can feel otherworldly energy in the hotel and I have the shadows of nightmares to prove it.

What is the one thing that you would tell an aspiring writer to do?

Never give up. Keep writing. Trust your voice. Here’s one of my favorite quotes: Don’t forget-no one else sees the world the way you do, so no one else can tell the stories that you have to tell. Charles de Lint
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

First of all, congratulations on your debut.  I remember when my one an only book came out.  I was over the moon and also in disbelief that someone took a chance on me.  But enough about me; on with the review.

This book starts off fast and doesn’t let up.  I like that when reading a new/debut author.  Ms. Marti doesn’t bog down the story with unnecessary details and since this is the first book of a series, I feel that we will get more of the Morgans, including Nick’s sister, Alyssa.  In fact, I feel like she has only scratched the surface with Alyssa and Brandt, Nick’s BFF.  I mean like, WTH?  Denial, denial, denial with those two.  I loved it but I’m sure there is much more going on.  That’s what I truly liked about this story.  It has a sense of family surrounding Nick and Sophie.  Sophie’s mom is a piece but she does love her daughter.  Sophie has Kelly, her BFF.  Nick has Brandt and Alyssa.  The turn to each other through the tough times but also through the fun.

Sophie’s ex, Doug…OMG!  What a douche and it didn’t help that Heather, Nick’s office manager, just acerbated the romance between Nick and Sophie.  I don’t think that Heather is through with her quest but we will have to see.  Too bad that Doug and Heather didn’t realize that Sophie and Nick’s love for each other is stronger than what those two tried to do.  Ugh!  But that makes for good drama in a romance book and Ms. Marti nailed it.

Zack, the cat, and Bailey, the dog were great, too.  Ms. Marti makes good use of all the characters that she has created in this book and also in the series.  I believe in love at first sight and while some might think that the book is full of instalove, I don’t think so.  Nick had to figure out why he could never settle down and Sophie had to realize that men like her dad and Doug were just stupid.  She is lovable and finding Nick made her finally stand up for herself to everyone around her and to fight for what she and Nick had.  I won’t give you exactly what Nick finally figured out with his lack of commitment but I will say…AWWWWW!  He’s such a sweetie.

Overall, I really liked Ms. Marti’s writing, her characterization, and the plotting of the book.  It’s fast with no filler.  I can’t wait to read the rest of the series later this year.  Bring on Alyssa, Brandt, and Kelly.

#Review of Luke’s Redemption (a King Security novel #1) by debut author Annie Fife w/a rafflecopter giveaway! @AnniFifeAuthor

Luke’s Redemption

by Anni Fife

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Contemporary Erotic Romantic Suspense

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Chased by her criminal kingpin father, Katya Dalca runs to New Orleans and straight into the arms of Luke Hunter. Sucked into the carnal world of the French Quarter, she succumbs to Luke’s potent sexuality. He not only steals her breath, he steals her heart and the only leverage she has against her father. She is left with no choice except to pick up the pieces and rebuild her life alone.

Undercover DEA agent Luke Hunter thought his newest assignment—recover a stolen flash drive to gain the trust of the Russian mob—was like any other. But his target brings him to his knees, and after one taste of her intoxicating beauty, he’s in too deep. Doing his job means walking away, leaving his heart behind with nothing but a promise to reunite. It’s a promise he can’t keep.

When Katya’s past reaches out and her world unravels, her only hope is the one man she is most vulnerable to—Luke.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Excerpt One:

The smell of beignets wafted up and distracted, I lifted the bag and took a deep breath. Whoosh! Fine sugar blew up out of the bag and coated me.

“Shit, honey, you look sweet all over.”

Oh, just great.

Blinking sugar out of my eyes I looked up. And up. He was tall, well over six foot. Midnight-blue eyes rimmed by a deeper blue-black smoldered lazily down at me. “You’re holding the best beignets in the world. You gonna stand there or you going to take a bite?”

“Umm.” Jeez, Katya. Say something.

“Here, let me hold that for you.” He took the coffee from my hand. “Go on, babe. Take a bite. It’ll be the best thing you’ll ever taste.”

Still struck dumb, I did what he asked and lifted a beignet out of the bag and took a big bite. Oh! It was like sinking my teeth into a sweet pillow of ambrosia.

“Good huh?”

I nodded and stared back at him. Then, without uttering a word, I stuffed the rest of the beignet into my mouth. He grinned at me, shaking his head. “Want to wash it down with this?” He held out my coffee.

My fingers brushed against his. Yikes! I couldn’t stop the slight tremor caused by his touch. I took a gulp of coffee – half rich chicory, half hot milk – and finally found my voice. “Would you like one?” I offered the bag of beignets to him.

“Would be like taking candy from a baby,” he grinned. “But don’t worry, I’ve got my own.” He dangled a packet like mine in front of me.

Then we both stood there and smiled at each other while we gorged on sugary donuts. He would reach for my coffee to free my hand. Then after I ate some fluffy yumminess, he’d hand it back to me so I could take a sip. We swallowed the last of our beignets and licked our fingers.

I didn’t even know his name, yet I was more turned on than I had ever been in my life.

Anni says: Look out for the New Lower Price for Luke’s Redemption. Now ONLY $2,99!

(Hyperlink is: http://a.co/59eTWFH)


Welcome Anni Fife. Please start off by telling us a little about yourself.

I grew up in the city and spent thirty years following a successful career in TV and video production. A little under two years ago, I turned my life upside down. I shut down my production company, gave up my apartment, and packed up my entire life to relocate to a small seaside village…to become an author. For the first time in my adult life, I chose to follow the beat of my heart and do what I love. I haven’t had a moment’s regret since!

Is Luke’s Redemption a single title, or part of a series?

It is the first book of my King Security Series but it’s still a standalone love story. As a reader I enjoy reading series, but each book must be a standalone in their story structure. There is nothing better than having characters you’ve grown to love continue to appear in new stories. So when I wrote Luke’s Redemption I instinctively created characters that would have longevity. It’s fun to develop characters slowly over a series, waiting for just the right time for them to put up their hand for their own story.

There are at least six novels planned for this series, perhaps more. The next up is Gray’s Promise. It’s set in New York and Denton, Texas. Grayson Walker is Luke’s best friend, and he’s a wicked charmer. Zoey Morgan is his one-and-only. Torn apart by horrific tragedy, Gray and Zoey still carry the emotional scars fourteen years later. We follow their fraught reconciliation, and the unknown evil stalking them. Their journey is filled with pain, and a heart-wrenching beauty. And, of course, sexual chemistry so scorching it still gets me in a hot sweat when I think about it. I hope to release Gray’s Promise later in the year.

How did you come up with the plot for the story?

I’ve found out that I come up with one of my lead characters first, and the plot seems to follow. Luke’s Redemption was the first book I’d ever written, or even attempted to write. I don’t know what triggered my creative muse, but a few nights before my departure from the city, I started to think about Katya Dalca. Suddenly I could hear her footsteps beating a desperate rhythm down a dark road in the early hours of the morning. It was dead quiet. New Orleans was hung over from Mardi Gras. I watched her, and realized I was looking through the scope of a sniper lens. Was I her hunter or her hero? Or both? My story unfurled at such a rapid pace I spent the next hour typing manically on my iPhone. When I turned off the light, I had the beginnings of my novel. The next time I looked at it was a month later, when I sat down to write.

Please share your setting for Luke’s Redemption. Have you ever lived or visited there? If so, what did you like most?

Luke’s Redemption starts off in the French Quarter of New Orleans. I visited there many years ago and absolutely freaking loved it. The food, the music, the people,…it all blew me away. So when my debut novel screamed for a seductive location, I had no choice but to set it in NOLA. I had a lot of fun using real restaurants and bars, which I think adds richness and interest for readers.

Most of the book plays out in New York City. I was looking for the right place to put Thane Kingsley and his Security Company. He’s sophisticated, rich, and a total mystery. I’ve visited NYC several times, and its diversity and energy is one of a kind. So is King, so NY seemed like the only place to locate him. It also offered so many wonderful locations for the different characters that make up the series. I use a mixture of real restaurants and places as well as some fictionalized ones. This keeps the reader guessing!


When did the writing bug first bite?

I think I was around three or four when I was gifted with a pop-up book of Sleeping Beauty. I loved that book! I read it over and over until the pop-ups were in tatters. Maybe that’s where I got my love of romance and HEA’s? Seriously, I always loved making up stories in my head, but I never believed writing novels was a feasible career choice. I’d daydream about it, but my decision to follow my passion was sudden. A confluence of life events and opportunities that came together and ended with me making this life-changing decision.


Who are you favorite authors, book/series?

The most influential author in my romance writing is probably Kristen Ashley. When she releases a new book, I turn it into a day of celebration. Out come chocolates, the red wine and a comfy pillow. Then I curl up and spend the whole day alternatively laughing and weeping—and, of course, crossing my legs to contain the delicious tingles of desire. Her alpha heroes invade my dreams. Her heroines are funny and beautifully accessible. And her stories are both heartbreaking and uplifting.


If you could have an author roundtable discussion with any authors, whom would you invite?

Kristen Ashley—I love most of her books.

Wally Lamb— He takes years to finish each novel and no wonder. His characters are filled with a depth and humanity I can only aspire to reach. The man is sheer brilliance on a page. Everybody has to read ‘She Comes Undone’ at least once in their lifetime.

Wilbur Smith—When he was in his prime and writing books like ‘When The Lion Feeds’.

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie—This Nigerian author writes like an angel. ‘Purple Hibiscus’ and ‘Half of a Yellow Sun’ are two of my all time favorite books. Her characters literally jump off the page and into your heart.


Do you have any hobbies or special things you like to do in your spare time?

Besides reading, walking on the beach, and hanging with friends, drinking red wine and gabbing the day away…I love to scuba dive. I’m a master diver and have dived all over the world. There’s nothing quite like floating in the big blue, and losing myself for an hour to a world I rarely have access to.


What’s the strangest thing you’ve heard or seen?

I worked for a time in Abu Dhabi in The United Arab Emirates. The company I was contracted to employed a lot of Emirati women. The ladies bathrooms in our offices were not only very lavish, they also provided me the most extraordinary experience. In the communal lounge area the women would take the opportunity to remove their black hijab and abayas, refresh their make-up and gab with each other. The surprise was what they were wearing beneath their traditional garb. It was gobsmacking…but I’m sworn to secrecy. LOL!


What is the one thing that you would tell an aspiring writer to do?

Write!

Lord have mercy this book was dirty.  I mean that in a good way, too.  It’s been a while since I’ve read an erotic romantic suspense and Ms. Fife’s debut does not disappoint.  I know that I normally don’t lead off a review with the sex part but DANG!  Seriously, like a cold shower was needed.  That said, I found that I may have skipped some of it at times.  I know, right?  I never skip those scenes but I felt like they needed to communicate a bit more.

You see this book covers 6 years.  Yes, 6 years and it’s a long book, too.  I felt like I was on a roller coaster most of the time but I loved it.  Luke, at times, was too alpha for me.  He broke his promises too many times to Katya and she kept coming back to him.  I don’t like when the heroine has to keep forgiving the hero because he’s a dimwit.  In my eyes, he’s not a douche or even an unredeemable person but I felt like Katya didn’t need to keep suffering with Luke when she had plenty of that with her father.

The setting is perfect for their story.  I know, I’ve never been to NOLA but they way Ms. Fife uses the 5 senses, I really felt like I was there.  In the story and most writers don’t get that.  She did and I loved it.  Plus…come on…New York City!!!!  I’ve been there and I can’t wait to go back.  I know it sounds like I didn’t like the story but I truly did.  Ms. Fife’s debut knocked my panties, I mean my socks off.  Sexy, provocative, suspenseful and a heroine that I demanded that she get that HEA…I was hooked from the first page.  I just wish Luke wasn’t as alpha for me.

I know it sounds like I didn’t like the story but I truly did.  Ms. Fife’s debut knocked my panties, I mean my socks off.  Sexy, provocative, suspenseful and a heroine that I demanded that she get that HEA…I was hooked from the first page.  I just wish Luke wasn’t as alpha for me.  Ms. Fife’s writing is breathtaking.  She takes you into the story and never let’s go.  I really felt Katya’s despair and Luke’s helplessness in the book.  My heart broke for both of them but at different times.  No author has ever been able to do that to me.  The book is fast paced, even though its long.  It was over before I knew it.

I can’t wait to read Gray’s book next.  Ms. Fife has a defiant winner on her hands and a great start to a series.  Bravo!  Plus, I must find out about Thane.  *wink*
