Hawk: Cross Security Book Two
by Nancy Brown


As a member of Cross Security, Mason Hawk is a tormented man on a mission…some might say he has a death wish. 
No case is too difficult. Nothing is off limits. He delivers his own brand of justice. Solitude is his only reward. For fifteen years he has hidden the secrets he ran from at age seventeen. He shut everyone out when he became a Navy SEAL and he honed his skills to become the monster he believes he is. He’s a man with demons that run deep and dark. No one gets in. That is until she walks into his life and brings him to his knees. She is beautiful, smart, and perfect. Like beauty and the beast, he believes she could never love a man like him.
Kai Wailani has lived the perfect life. She has a loving family, has surfed all over the world and is on top of her game at the U.S. Air Force, but she wants more. When she joins Cross Security, the only man stopping her from achieving her goal is a gorgeous wall of muscle who goes simply by Hawk. He’s dark, dangerous, and yet, he can make her smile with a single glance. He’s a force when he walks into a room and he wants nothing to do with her.
Like fire and ice, the dance begins. They are enemies. They are lovers. There are so many secrets. Can Hawk and Kai trust each other enough to find their happy ending or will their passion end them both?
Robin's Review: These complex but enjoyable characters are working at Cross Security. This installment revolves around Kai and Hawk and picks up where the previous book Luke left off. This was a fast paced, action packed romance story. This book pulled at my heart strings with everything that happened from Hawk’s background. I recommend this series to anyone looking for a thrilling romance story.
It was my pleasure to receive a free copy of this book but that does not in any way affect my opinions in this review of this entertaining story.

Juniper Rise
by Anne Lucy-Shanley

In a harsh world where everything of beauty has been destroyed… isn’t love worth fighting for?
Sofia Spenser, plus-size social media influencer with a popular online blog, has it all—a loving family, lots of admirers, and privilege that only money can buy. But when the Z virus snatches away everything she’s ever known in the blink of an eye, Sofia finds herself hopeless and alone. Yearning for an escape from her desolation, she prays for people. Community. A place to belong. Safety.

Then charismatic nomad Ben Cassidy and his ragtag band of followers show up, an antidote to Sofia’s soul-crushing loneliness, and a buffer against the looming threat of the ever-present Zs.

The group is heaven sent, although dynamics are at play that Sofia doesn’t understand. Still, there are worse things than holing up with hot-as-sin former defense attorney Ben—even during Armageddon, a girl has needs. When he proposes the unexpected, Sofia knows her heart already belongs to him, and she’s determined to give him her body too, all else be damned. Juniper Rise has the potential to change her life—it’s a chance at a real future—but will it be a future with Ben?
Author's Note:
This character-driven steamy romance offers a guaranteed happily-ever-after. Set during the zombie apocalypse, it focuses more on relationships than gore, nevertheless reader discretion is advised. Although Juniper Rise is an interconnected standalone, reading Mayfly Hollow first is highly recommended. Thank you for supporting indie authors!
Robin's Review: This is a well written and easy to read story with an entertaining balance of survival, action, drama, suspense, and romance. The world building is rich and descriptive as if you are there. The plot is a continuation of the first book but more focused on Ben and Sophia. The characters are relatable and interesting with a touch of quirkiness thrown in. Once again, an enjoyable read with an apocalyptic romance.

Robin’s Review of A Creation of Tomorrow

A Creation of Tomorrow
D.L Fletcher

Alice's daughter Patsy now missing, her granddaughter Cami was without a mother and the one person that protected her from her father's anger. Having no doubt Cami's father Tom was responsible for the bruises, Alice turned to the police again and again, but just like when Patsy went missing, they repeatedly turned their backs on her.

Alice was desperate to find help. With nowhere left to turn, she turned to the most dangerous men she'd ever laid eyes on. Rumor had it that they were drug traffickers. The leader was thought to be the devil himself, and his men his demon disciples, but what choice did Alice have? She needed someone that could protect Cami.

They didn't wear patches on their leather, and they weren't called by any name, but they were brothers. For Rick, running a drug ring was challenge enough. Having each other's back was all that mattered until Alice approached him.

Drawn in the moment he looked at Cami's picture Rick ordered Jonathan and Swan to tail the little girl and find out what they could about her situation. It didn't take long to discover that she needed their help.

What none of them knew was the impact their decisions would have on tomorrow.
This is A Creation of Tomorrow...
Robin's Review: Alice Hendricks is trying to protect her granddaughter, Cami from her abusive father, Tom Watson. Enlisting the help of drug trafficker, Rick Stackston and his “boys.”

I couldn’t help but fall in love with the character Cami and I totally felt her pain, confusion, and anxiety.

This is a well written and engaging story with thoroughly fleshed out characters and some twisty turns. There is just enough cuteness and wit to make you keep turning the pages, blended well with drama, and stirred with a lot of action. I am so invested in these characters, I am heartbroken this journey has ended, but has it?

I never had such a wide variety of emotions while reading, I laughed, I cried, I cheered, and I mourned. This story was such an enjoyable experience, I highly recommend this book and this author. I am a fan for life.
My Favorite Line: “He thought about the little girl in the hospital all broken and confused. He thought about how life was before her, and what she brought to them when she walked into their lives. He thought of all the boys, and how they were always content after seeing her, and about how she gave them purpose in a world where they really didn't have one.”

Robin’s Review of Mayfly Hollow

Mayfly Hollow

 by ANNE LUCY-SHANLEY

Rating: 5 out of 5.
Mayfly Hollow
by Anne Lucy-Shanley

It began as a typical day… Fiercely independent bakery owner Kate Halloran likes her life the way it is. Casual sex suits her to a T. Work hard, play hard is Kate’s motto. No strings. No demands. No obligations. 
The ties that bind chafe. She learned a long time ago that the only person she can depend on is herself—and that’s just fine thank you very much. Then a fast-acting highly contagious novel virus sweeps the globe, ushering a nationwide lockdown. Violence erupts in the streets. Chaos reigns. With the population decimated, Kate’s self-sufficiency kicks into overdrive as she fears she’s the sole survivor. When the dead awaken, Kate becomes prey. Desperate and hunted, she undertakes a dangerous journey—fleeing to the only refuge she knows. The sanctuary of Mayfly Hollow isn’t without its perils. Can the other survivors there be trusted? And what about the mysterious cowboy called Teller, who gets under her skin like no man ever has? There’s more to him than meets the eye—she can’t help but wonder how much of his aww shucks routine is genuine. As threats close in on every side, can Kate set aside her complicated past to navigate the new world order?
Robin's Review: Sometimes you need more than just a zombie apocalypse, and Anne Lucy-Shanley’s story has it. There is an interesting tale about the main character Kate’s actions during and after the virus and or zombie apocalypse. I love how the story shows Kate’s strength and self-reliance, while being alone until she makes it to “safety.” This is a fast-paced entertaining story with some great characters. An enjoyable read if you like a little romance with your apocalypse.

Robin’s Review of Allegra – A Dystopian Romance

Allegra – A Dystopian Romance

Allegra - A Dystopian Romance
by Nikita Bloom

A small mistake in the formula that was supposed to cure one disease, led to another. NOW IT’S KILL or be KILLED. 
In an apocalyptic world surrounded by nothing but dusty ruins, dictatorial military rule, and a divided population, those are the only two choices. Aiden is a soldier in Roy Randall’s army, the head of the underworld. As a child who was thrown to the streets, he’s struggling to survive, with no real choice and no goal worth fighting for. Until he meets Allegra, who doesn’t want to just survive but to live... and love. Everything changes. Now Aiden is torn between his love and his commitment to a man who will determine whether he will live or die. Despite her fear, Allegra is swept away by an unexpected love story, but a sudden discovery shocks her world and forces her to choose between the fragile security of her previous life and a dangerous adventure. Will they succeed in saving the human spark in their hearts in a world where no room’s left for humanity?
Robin's Review: This was an action-packed dystopian romance that crosses many genres such as post-apocalyptic, military thriller, science fiction, suspense, and horror to say a few. The plot is strong and interesting, in that it was set in a post-apocalyptic world after a virus ravages mankind changing some but not others. So, the “government” has decided who shall live - the “clean” and who shall die - the ones changed by the virus.

The characters were complex and compelling so much that I rooted for them throughout the story turning each page anxiously. The world building was done so that I felt like I was right there. The moral dilemma behind the story was intriguing. Doesn’t everyone have a right to live? And who has the right to take that away?

Overall, a really well written story that I highly recommend to everyone. It has a little bit of everything to satisfy your reading desires.
It was my pleasure to receive a free copy of this book from the author but that does not in any way affect my opinions in this review of this entertaining story.

Robin’s Review of Apocalypse: A Zombie Thriller

It’s like Anne Rice meets Anita Blake in Underworld…with ghosts.

Apocalypse: A Zombie Thriller

 by Hayley Anderton & Laura Swift

Rating: 5 out of 5.
Apocalypse: A Zombie Thriller
by Hayley Anderton & Laura Swift

The virus has arrived. A deadly virus that destroys humanity. A virus that replaces the living with creatures that crave human flesh. As the human race dwindles, an unlikely group of young survivors battle against the odds to stay alive and avoid joining the ranks of the undead. Follow Cassie as she desperately searches for her brother; Heidi as she tries to cope with the consequences of her actions; and Ginge as she takes on a new role of keeping everyone alive.  Lives will be lost. The army of the dead will keep on growing. Welcome to the apocalypse.
Robin's Review: Cassie, Luke, Heidi, Eliza, Poppy, and Rob all go to the same school. When the outbreak starts, they are separated but try to get back to each other. Picking up Toby, Rori, Heidi, Eliza, Gemma, and Warren along the way.
They make their way to their friends’ farm where Ginge, Hannah, Billy and Cara live.

Here I go again:
This is what I call a cozy zombie apocalypse story. Meaning I could read this again and again, it was that entertaining. It was fast paced with bits of action and a little gore but a quick and satisfying read.
The characters were your average snarky young adults with some good one liners. I liked how they understood that it was a zombie apocalypse and went with the flow. I really enjoyed this book and can’t wait to read the next one in the series.
Zombie Tips:

Doors won’t hold forever.

Always search for weapons.

“Time to adopt the mindset and move with the times.”

Don’t make noise so that the rotters pinpoint your location and trap you.

Of course, hit them in the head seems to work.

Close the door behind you so no one can sneak up on you.

Always collect food as you go when given the chance.

“This might be the end of the world. We’ve got to stick together now.”

Zombie Apocalypse Rules:

“Number one. Nobody goes out alone. Secondly, every single one of us needs to be armed. And thirdly…” His eyes grew dark. “Ginge did the right thing by Gemma. We all need to be prepared for more scenarios like this one. If anyone is bitten…we don’t hesitate. We don’t wait. We put the sorry bastard out of their misery.”


Favorite Lines:

“Wow, she’s got some impressive teeth on her…do you not feed her or something?” Heidi grinned to herself. “Did she bite off more than she could chew?”

“Haven’t you heard? The only people who survive the apocalypse are the psychos. And usually, the ones with a sarcastic sense of humor.”

“God, I’m so out of breath. If I’d known the apocalypse was coming, I might have done some more cardio.”

“This is the bloody apocalypse, Heidi. I wouldn’t call this the optimum environment for chilling out.’’

“This isn’t a bloody field trip!”

“We don’t know when we’ll be able to eat next. I doubt that the rotters will leave Tesco alone just for our convenience…”

“You did what you could in the moment you were given. That’s enough.”

“Like after you watch a horror film at a sleepover and then you can’t even face going to the bathroom?” “Oh God, I’m glad someone else gets it. I’ve needed to pee since dinner.”

“We have to plan for a new future. Forget everything you had planned. Forget university. We’re not students anymore. We’re hunters, fighters, survivors.” Eliza sniffed. “Not sure what employers would think if I put that on my CV.”



Next book in this series will be released March 31, 2022

Robin’s Review of Charlie: Zombie Slayer Book 1

Charlie: YA Zombie Horror Story Zombie Slayer Book 1

by Gayle Katz

Rating: 5 out of 5.
Charlie: Zombie Slayer Book 1                         
by Gayle Katz

A snarky teenager. A new school to navigate. Can Charlie stop a zombie apocalypse in time for finals?
After she moves across the country and out of the hot zone, Charlie hopes to leave hunting behind. She's ready to make some friends at her new high school. But the past she hoped to bury rises again with a fresh, city-wide outbreak.


So much for settling into a normal life...

Desperate to stop the walking dead, Charlie enlists the help of some classmates to find patient zero. But as the scourge spreads, her talents may not be enough to keep them alive.

Will Charlie discover the source of the infection, or will she meet a gruesome end?

Charlie is the first action-packed novel in the Zombie Slayer apocalypse series. If you like sassy heroines, witty banter, and over-the-top zombie brawls, then you’ll love Gayle Katz’s tale of high school angst and flesh-eating walkers.


Zombie slayer or zslayer, Charlie Warner a 11th grade student moves from her hometown of Dallas, Texas giving up slaying to move with her Grandmother to Portland Oregon. Only her mentor, Stewart George follows her with bad news. The zombie leader, zleader bit someone before it died and that “person” came back to Portland and has started infecting others. So she must slay again. Not wanting to reveal her true calling to anyone in the beginning especially her friends Owen and Zan because that would put them in danger. As she searches for the new zleader and tries to figure out the supplier of the new drug, “zrug” she’s just your typical teenager. Yea right! What more could go wrong? Don’t ask just read it for yourself.
Robin's Review: I really loved this story and quickly became addicted. It’s fun and snarky but also, Zombies! The world that Katz has built, is a new and refreshing change from the usual zombie story. I’m a sucker for a strong female character with a kick butt personality and boy does this book have that in bulk. The characters are well written, and the plot was full of action and slaying. It was suspenseful, a real page turner, I was always ready to find out what happens next. The funny quips had me laughing from the get-go. I really, really, enjoyed this book. It was a lot of fun and hugely entertaining. Like some of my previous reviews, I would describe this as a “Cozy Zombie” apocalypse story. I could see myself reading it again and again, of course after I have read the rest of the series. Looks like it’s gonna be a few sleepless nights for me, and I hope for you also. Gayle Katz has authored a fantastic story and now, will be one of my go to authors. Will I read anything she writes? Books? Yes. Novellas? Yup. Cereal boxes? You bet!
Zombie Tips:

A zombie leader could mask as a human, but their eyes would still glow green.


Favorite Lines:

“Nope, this is a new drug. It’s believed that it’s manufactured from zombie blood and has a street name of zrug, at least that’s what I’m told.”

“It’s two grand for a finger,” he replied. “A finger?” she asked. “For real?”

“I’d feel more confident that you had the right equipment, than buying from some questionable Portland occult store for the tourists.”

“They had a peek, and then decided to leave. Wise move. If there were any more zombies here, they’d quickly be avocado toast.”

Robin’s Review of No Child of Mine

There’s nothing a government wouldn’t do to remain in power.

No Child of Mine: A dystopian political conspiracy thriller.

 by Olga Gibbs

Rating: 5 out of 5.
No Child of Mine:
by Olga Gibbs

There's nothing a government won't do to remain in power.

57th Year of the true leadership of The Ordained Liberating Party; or Year 2273 by the old calendar.

"The Collapse" took millions of lives and most of the country's farming lands, bringing the surviving population of the island to the brink of starvation.

Out of the aftermath of the chaos and anarchy, a new state had emerged, known as The Federation Britannia, run by the single and unopposed Ordained Liberating Party.

The division of the country's orphanages for children of "the true citizens" and children of "the enemies of the state" began the clearance of the questionable element, and bloody years of the Age of Cleansing had finished the purge, leaving behind a perfectly obedient electorate that marched every year in the Liberation Day parades, praising the Party's leadership and following the Party's every directive.

The rule of the Party is absolute. Its tool of compliance, the State Security Unit, is feared.
Tom isn't a frightened follower, he is a true believer. He loves the Party with all his heart. He trusts in the Party's wisdom. The Party had raised him, rewarding his devotion and love with a lucrative engineering job, and after the approval for the Procreation license, it also granted him a family.

But the unexpected midnight visit by the State Security to his flat, questions asked and blood samples collected, unsettles Tom more than he likes to admit, and the following day, whilst investigating the "black uniforms" interest, Tom witnesses the State Security troops, led by the familiar officer, marshalling the children from his daughter's nursery, packing them into trucks and taking them into the unknown.

At that moment Tom is forced to make a decision: either to follow the Party directive and to surrender his child into its plenary care or to protect what he loves and run.

But there's nowhere to run. There's no escape from the island or from the complete control of the Ordained Liberating Party.

"No Child of Mine" is a story of a father's journey to save his child from a totalitarian regime, who is in order to bury the truth prepared to exterminate an entire generation.




Robin's Review: After an apocalyptic event called the “collapse” this dystopian world emerges. It is set in the year 2273 in what used to be England. It is now called The Federation Brittania. “The Ordained Liberating Party” is in charge, rules heavily and demands loyalty.

Tom is a true believer where his wife Judy is more skeptical. They are parents to their child Tilly. In this different society the children are raised by others with visitation given to the parents once a month.

But something happens at the “Liberation Day” parade that makes them question their government, their freedom and independence.

This story had spectacular world building that made me fall right into it.
The characters were your average everyday people but so relatable and flawed.
The plot was original, interesting, and full of suspense and mystery.
I really enjoyed this story and would recommend it to lovers of this genre.

Robin’s Review of After the End

As a Doomsday prepper, he’s ready to survive the apocalypse. But what about the men hunting him?

After the End: A Post-Apocalyptic Survival Novel

 by Joshua V Scher

Rating: 5 out of 5.
After the End:                                                                                     A Post-Apocalyptic Survival Novel
by Joshua V. Scher
As a Doomsday prepper, he's ready to survive the apocalypse. But what about the men hunting him?

It turns out Addison was right: the world as he knew it did come to an end by means of a killer virus.

He's by himself now near what was Sicily, Oklahoma, tending to a wilted vegetable garden, foraging for rabbits, and eking out not quite enough water from a dried-up well. It's time to move. His Uncle Izzy, whom he's decided to seek out in his survivalist cabin hundreds of miles away, had prepared him well for an apocalypse - all but for the loneliness.

The plan is simple. Gun. Bow. Bike. Go.

If he could just make it across the state, then maybe...

But the virus didn't quite kill everybody. And humanity isn't all that humane anymore.

Ransacked and run-down, Addison learns all too quickly that hope is the enemy and trust is a liability. Survival has its costs.

In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man might be king, but in the land of the dead, he's bait.

The literary bleakness of Cormac McCarthy's THE ROAD meets the survivalist thrills of Gary Paulsen's HATCHET in this harrowing novel from Joshua V. Scher. Now a Motion Picture from Shout! Studios and 1157 Productions, out 8/17/2021.
Robin's Review: This world is Eden with no escape. Addison, Addie, is left by himself in this dystopian world post-apocalyptic event. It was ravaged by a virus called the “Stripes.” Leaving the survivors in a BS or PS. Before Stripes or Post Stripes world. This story shows the loneliness of being the only one left after an apocalypse. A very interesting blend of fiction, movie references such as “Wilson” and survival tips/recipes like colloidal silver and the hilarious recipe for “Preppers Surprise.” I enjoyed the tale of the “Deer Women.” Also keeping track of humans and dead bodies on the calendar was interesting. There’s even an explanation of how to tell time by the stars. This was such a great book with its wealth of information and relatable characters. It had funny sayings that I couldn’t help but laugh out loud.
Favorite lines:

“God is in the details, and haste is of the Devil.”

“The protocol’s about— Safety. Precaution. Survival.”

“Starve a cold, feed a fever.”

“The only difference between a beacon and a warning is who’s doing the looking.”

“The more you know, the less you need.”

“I bet you’re hungry enough to eat the balls off a low-flying duck.”

“But it just bounces off her like green Jell-O off a plastic tarp.”

“Always better to flinch than get hit.”

“See, the trick with subterfuge is sacrifice.”

“Ain’t nothing to do but wait. Stillness is my ally, boredom my comrade, with which I wage a quiet war of hide and go screw yourself.”

“Individuals are great. I love each and every one of ’em. It’s people who’re awful.’”

Some Survival Tips:

Get the best polarized and antiglare lenses and fit them with a top-of-the-line, military-grade, anti-reflection filters.

Check the smoke alarm for the 9-volt battery.

Use effective decoy methods.

Average person needs three quarts of water a day, just for consumption.

When you are trying to be quiet, open your mouth and take short, metered breaths.

Jerky lasts way longer if you don’t chew it. You can suck on the juices a good half hour before it dissolves.

“So, by digging a small pit and surrounding it with rocks, you keep the fire contained but by digging a trench into the outer the circle, you got yourself a channel for the air to flow in and feed the fire.

“If there’s one thing a cancer stick’s good for, it’s catchin’ fire.”

“Dessert noodles is made by sprinkling artificial sweetener on ramen noodles.”

“To make a spit for cooking make two tripods of twigs at opposite ends of the fire and tie a shoelace loop dangling from each.”

Fish Mox Forte is antibacterial fish medication which is amoxicillin in 500 mg capsules.

Directions on how to make a hot stone bed for sleeping.

Good places to hold up would be ones that were already abandoned and decayed before the scourge and that had already been picked over, pulled apart, and left to sink into disrepair.
Worthless ruins would be great sanctuaries.

Rating: 5 out of 5.
Luke: Cross Security Book One
by Nancy Brown

Luke Sanders is not only tall dark and sinfully sexy, he’s also deadly. He left behind the only life he knew as an elite sniper for Navy SEAL Team Six to join Cross Security. one of the most renowned security companies in the world. He doesn’t do relationships. He doesn’t do romance. It was only one night. Him. Her. Pleasure. And then a fast goodbye before he starts his new life. She’s a stranger. And yet, she’s not, she’s perfect. All he’s left with when the night is over and he boards his plane back to New York, is a name… QUINN.

Quinn Flanagan lost everything the night her family was killed. She forsakes her own chance at happiness to avenge her loved ones by joining MI6 and carrying on her father’s legacy. One dangerously hot night, she lets her precious guard down. When she walks away the next morning, all she takes from the only man who has ever managed to leave a lasting impression is his first name…LUKE.

Fate. Destiny. Karma…bring them back together five years later when the same man who abducts Quinn while on assignment for MI6, also shoots Luke’s twin brother. Can Luke save them both or will he walk away a second time?
Robin's Review: Luke and Quinn have an unforgettable hot and steamy one night stand that leaves them both longing for more. Years later they happen upon each other again but for another reason.

This story was full of sexy sparks filled with tension between the two main characters. It also had a “military” rescue mission packed full of action, adventure and suspense that made it hard to put down. It had equal parts of romance and intrigue to make it an excellent read. I highly recommend this story and author for your future reads.
