Review: Bleed Out: It Just Happened, Book 0

Bleed Out: It Just Happened, Book 0 Bleed Out: It Just Happened, Book 0 by Straughn Bowman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

In the first two books in the Bleed Out series, we're told that America's second civil war was caused by It... But what exactly was It?

I enjoy the Bleed Out series and have always been curious what IT really was. I was pleased to hear that the author was writing a 'Book 0' before moving onto Book 3.

This prequel explains what this mysterious force of It is all about. Within the span of a few days time, a series of cataclysmic events happen to occur in a short time, each worse than the last. These events lead to the dissolving of the USA and sets North America on a new path - the world we first encountered in the critically acclaimed Bleed Out series.

This terrifying, chilling thriller will have Americans wondering... Could It happen to us?

This book was definitely action-packed, well-written, and helps flesh out the world of Bleed Out. To be quite honest, this seems like an event that could actually happen in this mixed up world of 2019.

I recommend everyone to read this book (and entire series) as a cautionary tale for what could come. Start with and then move to the other two.

I received an ARC from the author in exchange for my feedback.

Review: Curious Minds

Curious Minds by Janet Evanovich My rating: 3 of 5 stars I read this book after reading the second book in the series. While I like the second book better than this book, the interactions between Knight and Moon are still awwsme. As the leads, they have a certain chemistry that is both flirty and exasperating for Moon. Nonetheless, they manage to work together effectively to try and solve the case. I do feel that the plot little weak but that is not the main reason I read these. The story does remind me of a great action film and I could see it as an even better film adaptation. Although I like the second book better, I do still recommend this book. View all my reviews

Review: Blackquest 40

Blackquest 40 by Jeff Bond on Tour May 13 - July 13, 2019 Synopsis: Deb Bollinger has no time for corporate training. Her company's top engineer at just twenty-seven, Deb has blocked off her day for the one project she truly cares about: the launch of Carebnb, an app that finds spare beds for the homeless. When she's told all employees must drop everything for some busywork exercise called Blackquest 40, it's an easy no. Trouble is, her bosses aren't really asking. Blackquest 40 is the mother of all corporate trainings. A near-impossible project to be completed in forty straight hours. No phones. No internet. Sleeping on cots. Nobody in, nobody out. Deb finds the whole setup creepy and authoritarian. When a Carebnb issue necessitates her leaving the office, she heads for the door. What's the worst that could happen? Armed commandos, HVAC-duct chases, a catastrophic master plan that gets darker by the hour - Blackquest 40 is a
