Review: A Pound of Flesh by Sophie Jackson

Title: A Pound of Flesh

Series: A Pound of Flesh #1
My Copy: Netgalley Review Copy
BookWhisperer Rating:


Lose your heart to your new bad boy book boyfriend. Wes Carter - sexy, edgy, behind bars, with emotional scars as permanent as the ink on his skin, just waiting to be healed by love...

Fans of Samantha Young, Jodi Ellen Malpas, Jamie McGuire, Katy Evans and Prison Break will find this powerful love story utterly addictive and unforgettable.

Their love is forbidden. But won't be denied... Can true love heal the deepest scars?

For Kat Lane, teaching inmates at a New York prison is her way of upholding the legacy of her beloved father, murdered fifteen years ago. But when new student Wes Carter walks into her classroom, she's shaken by the strength of her attraction to him. Carter is as handsome as he is dangerous, as mysterious as he is quick-witted - and he ensures people keep their distance. Yet vibrant Kat bypasses his defences and challenges him to reveal the real man behind the intimidating reputation. As their emotional barriers crumble, their inescapable but forbidden feelings cannot be ignored. But will Kat's discovery of Carter's role on the night her father died force them apart...or bind their hearts for ever?

A Pound of Flesh is a tale of loyalty, redemption and all-consuming love against the odds, introducing an irresistible bad boy hero...
The description suggests that you lose your heart to a bad boy, and that was about spot on as a description can get for a story. I can't say that I really found A Pound of Flesh a relative story to myself, but it is one of those heart felt journeys that will mark you.  Wes and Kat have had very different lives, but their journeys have brought them in and out of one another's lives just at the right times. First at a moments glance to ensure that Kat's safety, and then again when it is the right time for love to rock their world. I was impressed with the literary references, and the symbolism between the written works and their own story. The extremely  careful attention to detail creates this story so vividly that I could see the story play out in my mind as though I was the innocent bystander.  This is a story of inspiration, and just simply about the ability to overcome. Wes has had options, but always chosen the rough roads for his past. With the bright future just within his reach; he will need to make a choice without letting his past define him.  Kat on the other hand has spent years trying to overcome the  scars of her past. With a promise looming in the shadows she is reaching deep to find the strength within to move forward, and finally keep her promise. In both cases they are striving for the strength within to overcome, just as Wes was present in the exact moment to save Kat as a young girl they will now be thrust into one another world again, because only together will they find the strength they are both seeking. I was very impressed by the sophistication of this novel, and the extremely talented display in this story.

Review: Taking What's His by Jen McLaughlin

Title: Taking What's His
By: Jen McLaughlin
Series: Shilling Agency #4
My Copy: Netgalley.com
The BookWhisperer's Rating: 

One explosive device was all it took to turn Holt Cunningham from ass-kicking Marine to IT technician. Hell, he's still not over it. So when the cute little strawberry blonde at the bar asks him to kiss her, Holt can't resist the temptation of a sexy distraction. Before he knows it, she's blown his mind...and then skipped out the next morning.

Lydia Thomas never expected things with Holt to go quite that far, but oh, it was worth it. After being far too good for way too long, she was ready to be bad. Except that there's that tiny detail that Lydia kept to herself-Holt just spent the night doing naughty things...with his best friend's little sister.

One night isn't nearly enough. But with his friendship on the line, how far will Holt go in order to claim what's his?

Okay, when the opening letter from the author states this: “This one goes to all the Whovians out there.  And if you’re not one yet…what are you waiting for?  Join the dark side.  We have cookies, bowties, and fezzes.” I know that I have a great book in my hands.  And I did have a great book in my hands.  *Just a little side note: I have mad love for Doctor Who and this book was all about it’s nerdiness.  It brought me great pleasure and joy to know that someone else loves the show just as much as I do and had their heart ripped out with Ten and Rose were separated by a wall with a parallel world dividing them.  If you don’t know Doctor Who yet, I highly recommend it.  It is the most brilliant thing I have ever became addicted to. *

I was nervous at the beginning of this book because it started off getting straight to the point - Holt and Lydia leaving the bar together with an agreement of just one night and nothing else.  At this point, I didn’t know the characters but slowly Alberts introduces them and they are quite brilliant.  Both amazing in their own ways, these two are a match made in heaven.  Sweet Lydia brings calmness to the hectic world of Holt and Holt brings a bad (but good) edge to Lydia’s life. 


I really enjoyed reading this book and getting to know more of the Shilling Agency’s characters.  There was one perfect part of the book (besides the Doctor Who talk) that was poetic and really wrapped up the ending so nicely; “If you knock, I’ll let you in.”  What a powerful way to end a great book.

Review: Changing His Game by Megan Erickson

Title: Changing His Game
By: Megan Erickson
My Copy: Netgalley.com
The BookWhisperer's Rating: 

He controls the game, but she’s rewriting all the rules…

Marley Lake is no stranger to awkwardness, but getting caught watching a dirty GIF by the company’s hot new IT guy exceeds even her standards. That is, until she realizes he's as turned on by it as she is. But with a big promotion on the line, she refuses to let her current dry spell be her downfall. Maybe.

Austin Rivers has no business lusting after the irresistible editor of Gamers Magazine. He's a secret partner in the business—and technically Marley’s boss. One look at that GIF, though, and he’s ready to install a whole lot more than just software…as long as she never finds out who he really is.

But reality’s not as virtual as it seems, and when Austin’s identity jeopardizes Marley’s promotion, he has to change his game or risk losing the only woman with the cheat code to his heart.


I wanted this book so bad because I loved the thought of this nerdy kind of love happening between Marley and the new IT guy…and the fact that she gets caught watching a dirty GIF (It’s just funny!) 

While there were a lot of things that I like about this book; for instance, Marly was a great character, her brother was hilarious, and Austin’s relationship with his best friends daughter – they were all great.  But then there were things that kind of threw me off.  And that was basically the relationship that Marley and Austin had.  Austin seemed so cold and Marley was so friendly that they just seemed like an off pair.  Yeah, Marley got Austin to laugh a little while they were together but he always seemed so uptight.


It was hard for me to see a relationship for them.  I felt that there was no connection.

excerpt

© Allyn Lesley 2014

Where the fuck is that little she-devil?

Zo pointed toward the dance floor, addressing his employer’s unvoiced question. “Under the ball.”

Noah saw her clear as day and dancing way too close with someone who might soon be leaving the club with a limp. He blew out a breath. She knew better than this, yet she still tested the limits set up for her protection.

A restraining hand on Noah’s arm paused him mid-stride. “Boss?”

Noah’s eyes widened at Zo’s hand. Immediately, the younger man’s hand fell away, and he wisely stepped back. Even in the dim light, Noah saw embarrassment tinge Zo’s face.

“I, um. Excuse me, Mister Adams, but I can’t let you go over there,” Zo said, swallowing the fear his boss evoked.

“Let. Me?” Noah pointed at himself and straightened to his impressive six feet and five inches. “And who’s going to stop me?”

Review: Dash of Peril by Lori Foster

Title: Dash of Peril
By: Lori Foster
Series: Love Undercover #4
My Copy: Netgalley.com
The BookWhisperer's Rating: 

To bring down a sleazy abduction ring, Lieutenant Margaret "Margo" Peterson has set herself up as bait. But recruiting Dashiel Riske as her unofficial partner is a whole other kind of danger. Dash is 6'4" of laid-back masculine charm, a man who loves life - and women - to the limit. Until Margo is threatened, and he reveals a dark side that may just match her own....
Beneath Margo's tough facade is a slow-burning sexiness that drives Dash crazy. The only way to finish this case is to work together side by side...skin to skin. And as their mission takes a lethal turn, he'll have to prove he's all the man she needs - in all the ways that matter....

Lori Foster has this amazing ability to write wonderful alpha males who just know how to be a man – that is exactly what Dash is.  While Margo places herself in danger to catch the men who are abducting women, Dash places himself right along with her so that he can take care of her.  This might seem like Dash is overbearing with his protectiveness but really he is not.  He knows when to back off and let Margo be the lieutenant and he also knows when to step up and take control.

Their relationship with a sweet/hot one that made me feel all warm and nice inside at times (like when Dash takes care of Margo and her cat) and then comes the sexy time.  The one thing that I will say is that for some reason, the toughness of Margo kind of threw me off of her character.  I love it when a female character is strong but Margo seemed too strong.  There was a few times that I would have loved just to see her give in and be scared or something.  I guess I would say that I wanted her more human like than robot like. 


I did love the side story of Cannon and Yvette.  I hope this will continue to grow and that they will get a book because Cannon was just an interesting character.
