Review: Because of You by Julie Cannon


Barrett, such an interesting name for an interesting woman. Barrett is rich and owns her own company, she’s on a trip in Columbia to do business when her guide leads her astray and she gets kidnapped. While trapped she meets an amazing woman, a nurse, Kelly who has been there for a year and five months. When Barrett is finally rescued six months later she not only has to leave the other hostages behind but Kelly as well. Not being able to cope Barrett hires the same people who got her out to go and get Kelly and the other hostages. When Kelly finally comes face to face with Barrett again and gives her a hug it’s been two years since she’s been gone and she’s come with a surprise as well.

Kelly has been in survival mode for so long that it’s hard not to be the docile woman she was and do what she wants to do. Being back in civilization is hard but she makes it work. As time goes on she and Barrett get closer and the real adventure begins.

I loved this book. Even though it skipped days, weeks and months you could still follow along and understand the story, Julie Cannon did not need to make a day by day account of what happened or was going to happen in Barrett’s and Kelly’s lives. The ending was beautiful and a great start to a new and happy beginning. I highly recommend this book.


Review: The Job by Jove Belle

4-stars    BSB-Job

Right from the start I liked Sera and the situation she was in. I mean really what do you do when your cover is blown? Deny the truth? Make the accuser sound like they’re crazy? Admit it and hope you can get away? In Sera’s case she denies it and winds up being apart of a bank robbery where her ex, Tor works. She had it in control until Tor came down the stairs and said her name, from then on it’s a battle of life, death, survival and defusing bombs before the bad guys set them off.

Tor is the manager at her bank and she never thought that when she went to work traffic would be a nightmare because a building blew up, that her bank would be taken hostage and robbed, that her ex would be one of the bad guys and that she would not only lose one of her own but it would be one of them who gave the bad guys a key to get in to employee only parts of the building.

I was drawn in right from the start and it was really something to read. Not only that but Sera kept a cool head and kept the hostages calm when she could have made it worse by freaking out. The whole storyline was amazing and even though the book ended abruptly it was a fantastic read and gave you a feeling of more to come.


I really hope today is the last day we have to do this. I have suffered through three days of torture at the hands of mosquitos, I’m like a freaking buffet to them. My feet hurt something fierce and I won’t even go into the rest of my body. For the most part we got all the big stuff and furniture out, now it’s just trash day I hope. Finished mother’s place yesterday now today is dad’s place. I’m not looking forward to doing his backyard and may even leave that to the kids because one: not my dogs and two: not feeling like stepping in dog shit. At least there won’t be any mosquitoes there to greet me, one can only hope.

Review of Last Family Standing


I got an advance copy from NetGalley for an honest review and I wound up giving it 4 stars. 

I really enjoyed reading this one, it kept me hooked from the first page. Monica is such a sweetheart and yet she’s fragile too. Not many people would see it but I do. She’s gets the shock of her life when she’s called over to her friends house and see’s on T.V. the daughter she gave away, searching for her. Naturally following a mother’s instincts Monica wants to see her child and accepts the invitation to go on reality T.V. and the adventure takes off from there.

This book have me laughing every other page. Monica’s emotions and reactions were so really I felt like I was standing right next to her instead of reading about her. I loved the chemistry between her and Rick. From the start I was rooting for Monica and Jessica to spend time together and hopefully stay in touch after and become apart of each other’s lives. I will admit that I felt bad for Monica, everytime you turn around she’s getting some bruise or other. She was like a pincushion. All in all it was a very fascinating and exciting read and I give a big thumbs up to the author.

Being a woman

Sometimes in those rare moments when life gets you down mother nature comes up and not only kicks you in the ass but makes sure you go down even more. I hate when she come calling because it usually mean I’m stuck in the bed with nothing to do but work through the pain. Recently it has gotten worse. Then there are the times when you think you have it figured out and are all prepared and the bitch has the nerve to change up on you. It comes to the point where you’re just like DIE.
