Everyone thinks they know me… but they’re wrong.

Fearless on the outside— a lie.

I’m a fraud, hiding behind a mask of perfection. My reality very different.

The captain. The leader. The Queen Bee.

None of it real— all just an illusion.

Perception is everything and I use it to get what I want, when I want, refusing to let anyone stand in my way.

Until he shows me that he’s not the man I expected. He’s not just the quiet one... the innocent one.

But the one to finally tear away the mask and look beneath the surface. The only one who sees me, gets me, challenges me.

He’s already changed my life in a way I never expected.

My secret could make us or break us, but I know one thing for sure... I’ll protect it fiercely.

That’s the real me. Chelsea Fierce.

The girl behind the mask with everything to lose.

Review: The Killer Across the Table - John E. Douglas and Mark Olshaker



The Killer Across the Table: Unlocking the Secrets of Serial Killers and Predators with the FBI's Original Mindhunter

Review: The Killer Across the Table - John E. Douglas and Mark Olshaker - May 2019

Lately, I had wanted to get back into reading about Serial Killers and True Crime stories as it has been a few years since I went through this phase last. One of the books I read first was The Killer Across the Table which was fascinating. This story is based on the life of the FBI agent John E. Douglas and contained several interviews with criminals he has done. His interviews were all about profiling them and finding out what was going through their mind just before they killed and during/after the kill. More so their thought patterns etc rather than the act itself. John E. Douglas was also the agent to create the BAU which the TV show Criminal Minds unit was based on. He has also been the inspiration for shows like Mindhunter, Mentalist, and Hannibal movies. As I have always found the psychology behind the crimes and the personalities of the killers fascinating, I loved this book. I even shared quite a few of the pages and things I found interesting with my partner. Though of course, he thinks I'm weird and gets a tad worried when I read about serial killers/criminals and their mindsets. Growing up, I always wanted to be a forensic scientist or a criminologist as this aspect of criminals has always fascinated me from a young age. 
If you have ever wanted to find out what was running through a killer's mind, then check out The Killer across the Table by John E. Douglas and Mark Olshaker. The other thing that I loved about this book was unlike other criminal books, this one focused on those more obscure and unknown killers, etc rather than popularised ones like Bundy, Gacy, and Ed Gein.





Review: Wild Distortion - Tina Saxon



Wild Distortion

Review: Wild Distortion - Tina Saxon - August 2020 


Have you ever read a story that took you on a wholly different ride that you never expected with twists and turns? That for me was Wild Distortion by Tina Saxon as I found myself enjoying it more than I thought I would. The book starts with football star Ryker being found with drugs as he took the fall for one of his upcoming teammates. In order, though to get out of the spotlight, his agent and coach have told him to go to a hidden island and stay out of the cameras -keep a low profile. Ryker ends up going to Bora Bora where he meets "A" and is captivated by her. Later he discovers her name is Aspen and unlike the rest of the world, she has no idea of his fame and isn't interested in dating or sleeping with another mainlander/tourist as she has had her heartbroken by them before. Ryker sees this as a challenge and sets out to woo her. That is until he discovers he will have to try hard as Aspen's father and best friend are over-protective of her. Eventually though when the pair do connect and sparks fly, we read as Aspen comes to New York for the first time to see Ryker and decides to use this opportunity to try and track down her mother. This though will open a whole can of worms as Aspen's life starts to unravel as things about her past and her parents are not adding up and we later discover that everything Aspen thought was a lie - even her name isn't what it should be. I liked the latter part of the novel, though I wish we got to see a more dramatic focus on the reuniting of Aspen and her family rather than the main focus being on her relationship and potential romance with Ryker.  If you are in the mood for new romantic suspense, then don't forget to check out Wild Distortion by Tina Saxon today.
