Review: Contracted Defense by Piper J. Drake

Review: Contracted Defense by Piper J. Drake Contracted Defense Author: Piper J. Drake Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: Contracted Defense is the third title in the Safeguard series and was a gripping blend of humor and action.  Gikany and Una continue to like this suspenseful romantic series, even though the romance moves a little quickly for our tastes. One of the elements that we like about this series is that even though the main couple may fall in love quickly, it still ends with the Happily-For-Now, allowing the couple time to date as the next novel begins.  We like that for all the drama and intense passion, they still will take...

Review: Absolute Trust by Piper J. Drake

Review: Absolute Trust by Piper J. Drake Absolute Trust Author: Piper J. Drake Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: Gikany and Una thought Absolute Trust might have been the last book in the True Heroes series.  We are happy to say that it is not the final book.  We liked Brandon and Sophie’s story overall and look forward to more. Since the first book where we met Brandon and Sophie (and couldn’t help but observe their tension) we have waited for their story.  Although there were a couple odd notes, Brandon and Sophie’s journey was a satisfying one.  Sophie and Brandon’s trouble was never their attraction to each other or their personalities. ...

Review: Ultimate Courage by Piper J. Drake

Review: Ultimate Courage by Piper J. Drake Ultimate Courage Author: Piper J. Drake Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B-/C+ What We’re Talking About: Ultimate Courage is the second novel in the new True Heroes series. Though we enjoy the premise and the nature of this series, this novel struck an off-note with Gikany and Una. You need not have read the first novel in the series, Extreme Honor, to be able to enjoy this one.  So far it seems that these can be read as standalone, but that may change as the series continues.  What we really love about this series is that there are two happily-ever-afters in each novel. Or, should we say, the happily-ever-after...

Review: Deadly Testimony by Piper J. Drake

Review: Deadly Testimony by Piper J. Drake Deadly Testimony Author: Piper J. Drake Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B What We’re Talking About: Gikany and Una liked this second novel in the Safeguard series.  Kyle and Lizzy are not the stereotypical couple in a military romance.  We enjoyed the honesty of their characters, their uniqueness, and their journey. Kyle and Lizzy do not have the typical roles that one sees in military romance.  Kyle is the “damsel” in the distress while Lizzy is the hero.  We enjoyed this change.  We liked how Kyle, although trained in martial arts, was not a fighter in that sense.  He was vulnerable, and we appreciated seeing a man struggle with...

Review + Giveaway: Extreme Honor by Piper J. Drake

Review + Giveaway: Extreme Honor by Piper J. Drake Extreme Honor Author: Piper J. Drake Reviewer: Una Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Extreme Honor is the exciting debut novel in the True Heroes series.  I enjoyed the captivating story of David, Lyn, and Atlas. Suffice to say, I can’t wait for more in this gripping series that combines hot military men, their loyal canine companions, and the women they love. This novel sets up Hope’s Crossing Kennel, where David works with two other ex-military men.  They train dogs for anything from basic house pets to military working dogs and in between.  Atlas, a Belgian Malinois, has been returned to David to rehabilitate. Atlas, a military multipurpose dog,...

Review: Hidden Impact by Piper J. Drake

Review: Hidden Impact by Piper J. Drake Hidden Impact Author: Piper J. Drake Reviewers: Gikany and Una Rating: B+ What We’re Talking About: Although Gikany and Una are not huge romantic suspense readers, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to read PJ Schynder’s new series (written under the shiny new alter ego, Piper J. Drake).  Even though the romance may have moved a little too quickly (something Gikany and Una debated), the tension-packed storyline was incredibly gripping.  Hidden Impact is a stunning new start in the passionately suspenseful Safeguard series. We won’t lie, the lust starts early, but thankfully it is lust with the possibility of more.  Maylin is looking for a distraction and some comfort,...
