For the next five days, join me on my virtual stops to help me say goodbye to the Cut & Run series with cut scenes, playlists, behind the scenes looks at the process of writing this last book, and a peek at the original plan for the series and the twists and turns it took on its journey to the end.

Review: Tempest by Lisa Henry & J.A. Rock

Review: Tempest by Lisa Henry & J.A. Rock Tempest Authors: Lisa Henry & J.A. Rock Reviewer: B. Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Picking up right where Merchant of Death left off, Tempest begins at a sprint and doesn’t slow down for the duration of the story. Agent Ryan “Mac” McGuinness, not quite formerly of the FBI, and Henry Page (aka too many aliases to list), along with Henry’s twin sister, Viola, are running for their lives and heading to the only safe place Mac can think of: his parents’ farm in Altona. Again. But, with few allies and even fewer clues as to who is setting them up, getting their happy ending will take more than even...

Review: Lights, Camera, Cupid! Anthology

Review: Lights, Camera, Cupid! Anthology Lights, Camera, Cupid! Anthology Authors: SE Jakes, Amy Lane, Z.A. Maxfield, Anne Tenino, L.A. Witt Reviewer: B. Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Revisiting Carter Samuels and Levi Pritchard, the couple whose story kicked off the Bluewater Bay series, was a great way to begin this anthology. In Just Another Day, Carter and Levi discover that, even though they’ve been together for a while now, they still have a lot to learn about one another, including how to celebrate Valentine’s Day. While he’s not a fan of the commercialization of the holiday, Carter maintains a romantic optimism about the occasion—which, naturally, clashes horribly with Levi’s stubborn cynicism. While the resulting...

Review: Waiting for the Flood by Alexis Hall

Review: Waiting for the Flood by Alexis Hall Waiting for the Flood Author: Alexis Hall Reviewer: B. Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Once again, Mr. Hall has written something I absolutely love. Recounting the story of Edwin Tulley, collector and conservator of rare books and ephemera, Waiting for the Flood is a stand alone story and the second in the Spires universe, and, unsurprisingly at this point, I was just as taken with it as I have been Mr. Hall’s other books. It is a tale of final goodbyes and new beginnings, and remembering that it’s okay to want someone, and then be loved right back. Edwin is remarkable, at least in part, because he is...

Review: The Merchant of Death by Lisa Henry & J.A. Rock

Review: The Merchant of Death by Lisa Henry & J.A. Rock The Merchant of Death Author: Lisa Henry + J.A. Rock Rating: A- Reviewer: B. What I’m Talking About: Picking up immediately where Two Gentlemen of Altona ended, The Merchant of Death takes us even deeper into Henry’s world, even though Mac still has plenty to worry about, too. After nearly arriving at a temporary, but seemingly acceptable, understanding about their growing attraction to one another at the end of the previous story, both men were left shaken when Henry was abruptly called away again. By the time they are reunited, along with mutually vehement expressions of “I wish I hated you” borne on a wave of fury and kisses, Mac...

Review: Two Gentlemen of Altona by Lisa Henry & J.A. Rock

Review: Two Gentlemen of Altona by Lisa Henry & J.A. Rock Two Gentlemen of Altona Authors: Lisa Henry + J.A. Rock Reviewer: B. Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: I actually read the second story in this series, The Merchant of Death, before going back and reading Two Gentlemen of Altona because I found Henry and Mac’s situation so intriguing that I needed to know more. Taking place during the course of the investigation of a mob boss by the FBI in Indianapolis, Indiana, this is a fast-paced, exciting tale of confusion and attraction, which tend to occur simultaneously, in this case. Additionally, several mysteries emerge during the narrative, including the identity of a mole within the FBI, an ongoing collection...

Review: According to Hoyle by Abigail Roux

Review: According to Hoyle by Abigail Roux According to Hoyle Author: Abigail Roux Reviewer: B. Rating: A What I’m Talking About: As soon as I heard talk about some of Ms. Roux’s stories being revised for Riptide Publishing, I decided to hold off on getting the ones I hadn’t already purchased, including According to Hoyle, until available from Riptide. And, while I’m positive I’d have loved it anyway, I’m very glad I did. This book is simply good, all-around fun. It’s got a little bit of everything—suspense, secret government agencies, gunslinging, mayhem, humor, romance, and more—set against the backdrop of the post-Civil War American West. The main characters of According to Hoyle are divided into two...

Review + Giveaway: Liberty and Other Stories by Alexis Hall

Review + Giveaway: Liberty and Other Stories by Alexis Hall Liberty and Other Stories Author: Alexis Hall Reviewer: B. Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: Liberty and Other Stories is a remarkable telling of the various backgrounds and evolutions of the crew of the Shadowless (Byron Kae’s aethership), who were introduced to us in Prosperity. Through Piccadilly, Mr. Hall gave us expertly delivered teases and glimpses into their respective pasts, which were just enough to make me insanely curious about how they all came to be in the skytown in the first place. This assortment of hearsay, correspondence, and recollections provides some of those answers. As usual, Mr. Hall has proven himself to be an exceptional writer, bedecking the...

Review: Three the Hard Way by Sydney Croft

Review: Three the Hard Way by Sydney Croft Three the Hard Way Author: Sydney Croft Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: B- What I’m Talking About: Taggart and Justice were childhood friends and more. On the run together with their mothers, the pair had to hide their unusual abilities out of fear they will be taken and killed just like their fathers. However, that all changed a few years back when both Tag and Justice’s moms were killed. Justice made the decision to join ACRO, a black-ops organization friendly to those with paranormal powers, whereas Tag went off the grid. The once inseparable lovers and best friends were no more. Tag spent the past year on the run from...

Review + Blog Tour + Giveaway: Hell on Wheels by Z.A. Maxfield

Review + Blog Tour + Giveaway: Hell on Wheels by Z.A. Maxfield Hell On Wheels Author: Z. A. Maxfield Reviewer: B. Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Living in Bluewater Bay always suited Nash Holly just fine, for the most part. Taking on a lot of the responsibility for his family at a young age never made his path an easy one, but he gladly accepted his role with unshakeable devotion. The idea that there might be more for him wasn’t anything he allowed himself to think about, at least until a close call on a rainy night turns out to be much more than it seems. Spencer Kepler-Constantine knows all about the pitfalls of fame, but recent heartbreak has made...
