Review: Baggage Check - MJ Pullen

Baggage Check (The Marriage Pact, #3)

Review: Baggage Check - Book #3 The Marriage Pact - MJ Pullen - November 2013

To be completely honest, I opened this book with the hopes that it was set at the airport and I thought it would be about mistaken luggage or mixed up bags. Turns out though that Baggage Check is about middle aged Rebecca who is now thirty-five and one of her friends Suzanne. Rebecca hasn't been home for years, not since the guy she loved and has loved all her life ended up marrying one of her friends Marci. Ever since college, Rebecca has loved Jake, and of course, he is happily married to Marci who is now a famous parenting and lifestyle blogger.  Rebecca lives her life in the air as an airline flight attendant and therefore doesn't have time to date or put roots down, this is her way to forget about her past. What happens though when the wedding starts to resurface old feelings ? Especially when she receives a phone call from her mother and has to detour to her small hometown where she was known as the girl whose older brother died in a car accident. Rebecca arrives home to find her mother's home condemned, and her mother is a compulsive hoarder, and cat lady and her families life are crashing around her as her father is busy with his secretary - his new girlfriend. Back home, though it might be finally time for Rebecca's love life to start looking up as a new Sheriff has caught her attention. Is Alex Chen, the guy she needs to replace her feelings for Jake? Is this finally time for Rebecca to accept her life and move on from her dreams and settle for a reality she has never taken time out to realize is happening around her?

Review: The Beauty of Lies - Brinda Berry

The Beauty of Lies (Stand by Me, #1)

Review: The Beauty of Lies - Books #1 Stand By Me Series - Brinda Berry - October 2015

Secrets are exposed, trust is betrayed and two people face the beauty of lies.

Leo Jensen has a secret life, to his friends he is plain old Leo but to the world, he is known as something more sinister and dangerous. To the world, Leo Jensen is known as Mr. Expose. He exposes the lies and secrets of the world and makes the public face up to their lies and hidden truths. Most people send Leo requests via postcards with their confessions or their stories - the ones they want to be published.  For one female in particular though, she doesn't want her truth and submission to be published and will do anything to stop it, especially since he doesn't seem to be taking her email requests seriously.  Harper Wade fell in love with a man and thought she had met the guy of her dreams as they married. Then he died, and Harper soon learned the dark truth, that the husband she loved was in fact already married with another family. He had been living two lives. Harper in a fit of anger wanted to expose him, but as she got to know his other family and daughter - she softened and decided to protect him so his daughter wouldn't grow up thinking awful of her father. To do that though, she had to stop the postcard from being published. Harper then took things to the next level by semi-stalking Leo and moving into his apartment building after befriending Leo's sister. What will happen though when Harper and Leo start dating and start to fall for one another? Will Leo still want Harper when he discovers the truth especially since exposing the truth is his ideal goal and if there is anything that he hates the most - it's Liars. 
To find out whether Leo decided to forgive Harper and move on, check out Book #1 in the Stand By Me series by Brinda Berry. 

Review: Bryce - Natalie Decker

Bryce (Scandalous Boys #1)

Review: Bryce - Book #1 Scandalous Boys - Natalie Decker - February 2016

Growing up Madison had two best guy friends - Graham and Bryce. Graham later became her best friend, and Bryce was the bonus. Despite their friendships, Bryce and Madison clashed and liked to tease one another.  Madison hopes that this is her year to get Graham to see her more than a friend finally and as a possible girlfriend material. She has seen him as her Mr. Perfect. That is until her cousin Sarah moves in with her family after her parents are arrested for White Collar crimes. This is a disaster from day one as Sarah is manipulative and again like the previous book I read Girl on the Verge by Pintip Dunn. Sarah wants everything that Madison has and will go to lengths to ruin her life even to the point of poisoning Graham's view of Madison. When Graham breaks Madison, it is Bryce who comes to her rescue, and suddenly Madison will see Bryce in a completely different light as she learns he is not the bad boy that everyone has portrayed him and judged him for. In fact, Bryce has a caring side and Madison makes him want to be a better person.  I found Bryce to be a modern teen version of Pride and Prejudice where both characters hold Pride in their lives and Prejudice towards one another as Madison sees Bryce as a troublemaker and the epitome of Bad Boy whereas Bryce sees Madison as a Goody-Goody two shoes and the Epitome of an Angel. Can Madison and Bryce make things work and prove to others that their love for one another is real and that opposites can attract to one another?

I’m not supposed to be here.

Death has come for me more than once, and each time it’s been a boy who’s
stood between me and my final breath.

I called him Christopher when he saved me as a child. When he came into my
life again, only months ago, I knew him as Wes. Just as he did the time
before, he disappeared the moment he made sure I was out of harm’s way; as
if I didn’t need any more saving.

This time, though, death left me with a reminder of how powerful it is. I
know it meant to strip me of my spirit again, but it failed.

Even so, I know I need Wes to survive. Our souls are woven together
somehow, our every breath in sync. I feel it, even though everyone says I

The world thinks he’s missing.
His loved ones don’t want to believe he’s dead.
Only I know just how special he is.

I’m going to find him and bring him home, where he belongs. Together,
we’ll face impossible—we’ll rewrite our ending.

And when the bad guys come calling, we will always win.

About Linda Burson

Linda Burson Picture
Linda Burson, a Connecticut resident for over 27 years, has been writing ever since she was a teenager. She started out writing memoirs and continued writing by attempting several nonfiction pieces.
After attending college, pursuing other interests, and traveling, a lot of Linda’s free time was spent reading mysteries, romance, and women’s contemporary novels.
After several attempts at writing nonfiction, but having life get in the way, she put her passion on hold again. She gave up writing to focus on raising her daughters, being a wife, running her own custom computerized embroidery business and taking care of her dog, a Lhasa Apso named Nathan.
After a serious bout of breast cancer, Linda eventually closed down her business after almost fifteen years. She decided it was time to attempt writing again. This time, however, with nothing to distract her, she decided on tackling fiction, a contemporary, commercial romance with a dark edge.
In January, 2013, she sat down with her laptop and started writing notes about how her novel would progress. After that, the writing began and it never stopped. Before she was aware of it, her idea of a single book turned into a trilogy, which turned into a much longer series called the MARCY SERIES.
When asked about inspiration, Linda has this to say: “Nobody really inspired me to write, but I do remember my mother and father always saying ‘anything you put your mind to you can accomplish. Don’t ever let anyone tell you, you can’t do something.’ Having the support and encouragement of my family is also important. Having my youngest daughter, who works in the publishing field, offer advice and knowledge, has helped me to stay focused and continue to write.”
Linda’s first five books in the Marcy Series are published—and the sixth will be available in 2017. Her hope is to have her complete Marcy Series romantic thriller published in the near future. She is also in the process of writing a new thriller, and has just completed a murder mystery novel which she hopes to have published in 2017, along with her other Romance Thriller/Suspense, The Colors of My Life.
