Book Review: Willow (The Sinful Seven #3)

Title: Willow: A forbidden age-gap Rockstar Romance (The Sinful Seven Series Book 3)

Author: Connie Lafortune

Link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B097T5HK3R 

Summary

Age is just a number, right? Not if he’s the CEO of my record label and technically my boss…

On stage, I come alive.

I know I’m an essential part of The Sinful Seven. I revel in the roar of the crowd.

As the music thumps, I find my place under the stage lights.

For a few short hours, I can just be me.

Not the murderer’s daughter.

Caleb wants to break down my defenses. He thinks he can save me from myself. Little does he know, others have tried. All have failed.

I have a secret I carry with me every moment of every day. One that caused me to build walls around my scarred heart, with strict rules set to protect myself.

No huge age gap.

No kids.

Never let him get too close.

Being with him would break every single rule. But, whether I’m ready to admit it or not, he just might be worth the risk. I pray I’m not making a mistake. If my heart breaks again, there will be no putting the pieces back together.

My Review

5/5 Stars

Willow is close to her bandmates, and with their help, and her general love of music, finds herself able to move past every tragedy that life throws her way. When she meets a record producer at a party named Caleb, she’s intrigued. He’s older than her, but she has faith in him. Faith she didn’t think she could put in anyone else again. The only problem is that they both have secrets they’re keeping from one another. Will Willow be able to take down the walls she’s carefully constructed to let him in?

Though this is the first book in this series that I’ve read, I really liked Willow’s character and the entire background. The setup of the band and the dynamics she has with each member was very believable. The slow burn romance between Willow and Caleb was tastefully done and really kept me on the edge of my seat wondering what would go down between the pair next. All in all, this book is an emotional rollercoaster that fans of the genre will adore. 

Book Review: Against Blood

Title: Against Blood (A Detective Cliff Husto Thriller #2)

Author: Jack King

Link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08G9NYYF7/

Summary

Houston is falling apart. Gang violence in the streets, crazed neo-fascist cults, and violent mischief abound, steeping the Texas city in chaos and bedlam. And to make matters worse, twisted half-truths and mounting conspiracies behind closed doors threaten to set the worst of the worst against each other in an all-out city-wide war for power and vengeance. As tension mounts and deadly plans are made, HPD senior detective Cliff Husto is reluctantly drawn into the fray.


But when what he thinks are just minnows in a sea of crime devolve into a series inexplicably clean murders of military personnel, Husto is faced with his most baffling case yet. The detective must now unravel the web of conspiracies and vendettas entangling Desert Storm veterans suffering from PTSD, a group of Islamic college students on the path to radicalization, and hard-line, racist American nationalists. Husto must extinguish the rapidly spreading criminal wildfire tearing through the streets of the city before it is too late.

My Review

5/5 Stars

A thrilling page turner, Against Blood is the second book in the Detective Cliff Husto series. In this one, Husto finds himself deep in a mess of crimes involving Desert Storm veterans suffering from PTSD. Taking place in Houston in the early 1990’s made this an interesting read to see how the crimes would be solved without some of the more modern techniques to help out.

There are plenty of well-developed characters throughout the story, and I adored the way the author had them all come together. Another part of the story that I thought was well done was the way the author handled the topic of PTSD. It was respectful and realistic, painting a picture of what life is like after trauma. Not only this, but it also handled other delicate subjects like racism and radicalized terrorism.

This book will be a definite favorite for readers of crime thrillers and mysteries.

Book Review: Golem

Title: Golem

Author: PD Alleva

Link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B09CV5823C/

Summary

“An extraordinary psychological horror book. Excellently written, with a twisted, spiraling, unexpected end that will leave you speechless.” ~ TBM Horror Experts

Detective. Angel. Victim. Devil.

A haunting tale of suspense, loss, isolation, contempt, and fear.

On November 1, 1951, war hero John Ashton was promoted to detective. His first assignment: find the district attorney’s missing daughter. But his only lead is Alena Francon, a high society sculptor and socialite committed to Bellevue’s psychiatric facility. 

Alena has a story for the new detective. A story so outlandish John Ashton refuses to heed the warning. Alena admits to incarnating Golem, a demonic force, into her statue. A devil so profound he’s infiltrated every part of New York’s infrastructure. Even worse, he uses children to serve as bodily hosts for his demonic army, unleashing a horde of devils into our world. 

When Alena’s confidant, Annette Flemming, confirms the existence of Golem, John is sent on a collision course where fate and destiny spiral into peril, and the future of the human race hangs in the balance. 

The Devil Is In The Details!

Fans of The Silence of the Lambs, Clive Barker, John Connolly, old Stephen King, and Anne Rice will be fascinated by this edge of your seat psychological horror thriller with a story that rips out the heart of humanity and throws it on a slab to be feasted on. 

My Review

5/5 Stars

Chilling and compelling, Golem is a twisted story that follows a recently-promoted detective, John Ashton, as he’s set to search for a missing child. When his only lead is an ex-socialite, Alena, who’s been in a sanitarium, he isn’t sure what to believe. He’ll quickly be pulled into a web of horror and terror, leaving him with no other choice but to believe her tale is the truth.

I thought Alena was a fascinating her character. Her choices and character growth (or destruction) or the course of the novel was very well-done. Though John has his secrets under a mask, the longer I read, the more fascinating I found his character to be as well. Alena and John became an unlikely pair as the story progresses.

It’s not very often that I read horror novels that take on the Golem myth, but PD Alleva absolutely nailed it here. While the stories I have read before spoke of gentle, guardian Golems, the idea of one turning on their creator is terrifying and such an interesting twist.

All in all, Golem is a psychological tale that will invoke all the creepy feelings.
