Review: Fight To Survive

Fight To Survive Fight To Survive by Alan McDermott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

McDermott has done it again and delivered a solid third entry into his Driscoll series. Without a doubt, this is the most action packed of the trilogy. The action never seems to stop, but it is well interlaced with moving the plot forward.

This book does a masterful job of blending the series-long saga of the ESO with a stand alone plot revolving around North Korea. Both narrative threads are equally as interesting and well detailed. To fully understand the ESO plot, you would need to read the first two books in the series. However, you could read this as a stand alone, and still understand it well. While it does not end on a major cliffhanger, there is definitely potential for a sequel.

I felt this book had the strongest characterization of the three. We got to know Eva on a deeper level - her thoughts, motivations, and core values. I thought the romance element was a bit superfluous, but it was not too over the top. The secondary characters, such as Sonny, also had plenty of moments to shine and grow.

I definitely recommend this book and hope to see more in the series!

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.

Review: Shadow Ridge

  Shadow Ridge by M.E. Browning December 1-31, 2020 Tour Synopsis: Death is one click away when a string of murders rocks a small Colorado town in the first mesmerizing novel in M. E.

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
