Breach 
by Candace Nola

Laraya Jamison is a young woman on a camping trip with close friends before the start of college classes. 
When they are savagely attacked by a creature that defies description, she flees into the woods, unknowingly crossing through a breach between realities.

She must figure out where she is and how she got there in order to get home, but her survival depends on fighting monsters and demons that seem to have been ripped directly from her nightmares. Lost in a dark world full of creatures, hostile plant life and a banshee intent on hunting her, she must learn to confront her fears and figure out how to survive on her own.
Robin's Review: Laraya, the main character, finds herself in an alien world where she must survive in this foreign environment, with monsters craving her death at every turn. 

The world-building was richly descriptive and oh so imaginative. I don’t know where Candace Nola gets these ideas, but she can paint the picture so that you feel you are right there with Laraya trying to survive. The plot has some twisty turns that had me shaking my head in amazement. Breach is such a well-written freaking thrill ride that had me wanting more. Luckily there is the 2nd book in this series. I loved this story and highly recommend it to everyone, no matter your taste in genres.

CHRIS (Cross Security Book Three)

by Nancy Brown

This will be a job from hell…

I knew that from the moment I laid eyes on her.

Ex- MI6 agent Chris Winters lives by the rules. The most important rule of all: no messing around with a client. It works for him. Until it doesn’t. His newest job for Cross Security should be simple. Poppy Jones, the hottest swimwear and lingerie model on the planet, has a stalker… a ghost from her past who is coming to collect what he believes is his. Chris is to protect her and find out who is issuing the threats.

Simple. Cut and Dry.

Until it’s not.

Their chemistry is off the charts. But even as Chris fights his attraction to Poppy and discovers there is more to her than meets the eye, the real threat comes not from her stalker, but from the growing connection between them.

If he puts everything on the line, including his heart, will Chris still be able to keep her safe? Or will the ghost from Poppy’s past succeed in taking what he believes is his?

It’s a dangerous game to play. Who will succeed, and who will fail?

This is the third book in the Cross Security Series, and I think the stories are getting better and better with each one. This particular book is an age-gap romance story with a slow-burning forbidden attraction. I really enjoy how beautifully character-driven these stories are and how much fun they are to read. Who doesn’t like a little suspense with their heat? It’s a well-written, easy-to-read story with likable, believable, and relatable characters that you can’t help but to fall in love with – and I sure did. I adore this series and the way Nancy Brown writes it so that it all falls together quite nicely.

There will be more stand-alone books coming in the future.

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.

Back to You 
Rainbow Falls: Book 1
by Shelby Lynn

Come home to Rainbow Falls and a new heartwarming series…You can go home again...
After the collapse of her marriage, Liz Randall returns to Rainbow Falls, looking to start over. What she’s not looking for is romance, especially with Jack Keane, who broke her heart twenty years ago. She wants to focus on her new business and forget about the past; however, when Jack - now a police officer - shows up at her door with her teenage daughter in tow, sparks fly. Jack never wanted to hurt Liz, but he had to let her go for reasons he can’t explain. 
Robin's Review: Back to You is a bittersweet story of second chance love story. It is well written, and the characters Liz and Jack are adorable. I loved the ending. Oh my, the next book in this series should be fun to read. I highly recommend this book, and I am buying it for my Mother.

Katy's Loss: A Dystopian TV Satire 
Book 1 of 3: What's your problem?
by Maxwell Winshire

Welcome to the dystopian future of TV in 2084: 'What's your problem?' Counselor versus Patient, competing to win, against each other.
Katy is a former beauty queen, who has struggled with weight issues all her life and this new TV show, “What’s your Problem?” promises a solution to anyone’s problems. If she wins, she gets her dream aquarium bathtub. If she loses, the forfeit is designed for maximum personal humiliation.Enter Captain Stanislav Boglosovic from stage-left, a thin elderly former ‘translator’ wanted for war crimes, struggling in retirement in Brazil. If he wins, he gets his pension; If he loses, he calculates prison, but he’s never lost; whatever it takes to win, there are no limits.But who will win? And is the prize worth the effort for one, and the forfeit for the other?Let the tournament commence, and all our hopes and fears begin.
WARNING: This is strictly for Adults Only containing profanity, heterosexual and non-binary graphic themes, and scenes.
Robin's Review: This is an entirely different take on this I don’t even know what to call this genre. Dystopian? Maybe Heinz 57. A little of this a little of that. This story is in the future and is based around a TV show called “What’s Your Problem?.” This story was incredibly disturbing, but I understand it is a satire with obvious graphic se xu@l content and does come with a warning. On that note I was quite confused throughout the book but finally finished it. He has two more books in this series that I believe are along the same lines.

Next in the series:

Tony's Cross: A Dystopian TV Satire (What's your problem? Book 2)

Matt's Shadow: A Dystopian TV Satire (What's your problem? Book 3)

Kill Zone
by Damir Salkovic

Frank Clayton's life has fallen apart in the wake of his son's death. 
His wife has left him, he has been blacklisted from employment and his citizen-consumer status had been taken away, leaving him no choice but to enlist in a murderous reality show. When an opportunity comes up to escape his predicament, he finds out that he still has something to live for: revenge.
Armed with wealth and influence, Frank decides to bring the war to the studio, the powerful corporations and the society that has forced him to make an impossible choice. But hidden interests are manipulating him, trying to turn him into a pawn of the very forces he's fighting against. The world he moves in now is every bit as lethal as the trenches and machine guns of the kill zone.
Robin's Review: This is a frightening and scary story set in a dystopian world. It was well written and easy to read. It had an interesting plot and descriptive world building to which I am so glad I don’t live there. It was a survival of the fittest kind of story where a lot of people didn’t survive. It had some twisty turns and was chocked full of action. An entertaining book that I recommend completely.
