Casee: I’m out of town for the weekend so I don’t expect to get a lot of reading time in. I finally finished Vengeance Road by Christine Feehan. It really picked up and I ended up enjoying it. I’m currently reading Too Far Gone by Christy Reece which is the third book in her Grey Justice series. The series is free with Kindle Unlimited right now.

I’m also listening to Worth the Fight by Vi Keeland. I listened to Hate Notes by Vi Keeland by Penelope Ward and thoroughly enjoyed it so I decided to listen to another one by one of the authors. So far I’m really liking it. I honestly can’t believe how much I’m enjoying first person books. It’s amazing.

Holly: Things are crazy at work so I had a pretty slow reading week. I finished reading My Favorite Half-Night Stand by Christina Lauren, which I really enjoyed. I also re-read Mystery Man and Fairytale Come Alive by Kristen Ashley.

I listened to Inside Out by Lauren Dane. Man, I love this series. I’d forgotten how much I adore Cope. I also listened to Hate Notes by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward. It was just okay. I didn’t really connect with either character.

I’m currently listening to Jaxson (Riverwise Private Security #1) by Alisa Woods. I’m about 5 minutes in, so I can’t comment yet. I’m reading Heaven and Hell by Kristen Ashley, which I somehow skipped over.

Rowena: I’ve been so busy with shit at work that reading took a back seat this week. My office Christmas party is today so odds are, right this minute, I’m laughing it up with my coworkers and not reading anything at all. I did read Once and for All by Sarah Dessen and that was more of the same of what you’d expect of a Sarah Dessen contemporary YA romance. Good and enjoyable though. I also read Hate Notes by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward and that was another enjoyable romance that took me no time at all to read.

Next up is Mystery Man by Kristen Ashley because I need to get that read and a discussion prepared for next week’s end of the year book club. I can’t wait! After that, I’m hoping to finally dig into my eARC of The One You Fight For by Roni Loren since that took a backseat to reading Hate Notes.

Casee: I am still (yep) reading Vengeance Road by Christine Feehan. These last few weeks have really thrown me off my reading game. First there was getting ready for family to be in town. Then there was family in town. Then there was recovering from having family in town. I was finally able to sit down with this book and really get into it this week. I’m about 80% through it and it’s pretty decent. Standard Feehan fare.

I’m also listening to Hate Notes by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward. Holy shit, this book is funny. I don’t even want to think about what I look like sitting in traffic, laughing like a maniac. Actually, I don’t really care how crazy I look. I am so loving this book. If you have Kindle Unlimited you can get it for free on Kindle. I am looking forward to finishing this one. I happened to fall into this book so I don’t know what else these authors have written. I can’t wait to find out.

Holly: I finished listening to Ain’t She a Peach by Molly Harper, which was cute. I liked how quirky and sort of dark/funny the heroine was. I wouldn’t classify this series as strictly romance, since the heroines do a lot of growing over the course of the books. I also listened to Goddess with a Blade by Lauren Dane (a reread I enjoyed), One More Time by Laurelin Paige (there was a lot of gratuitous sex, but the reunited lovers story was cute) and Ache for You by J.T. Geissinger. It was pretty awful, guys. The heroine is so horribly angry for the entire book there was no redeeming her. I wanted to love it, because it’s a Cinderella retelling, but no. Just no.

I re-read Coming Undone by Lauren Dane, which I adore. Brody 4ever! I also read Chocolate and Sin by K.F. Breene. I liked it okay, but it moved slow in parts. I’m looking forward to the second book. I started reading Royally Hung by Anne Marsh, another Cinderella retelling, but I ended up DNF’ing it about 50% in. The writing voice didn’t work for me at all.

I’m currently listening to Blade to the Keep by Lauren Dane and reading My Favorite Half-Night Stand by Christina Lauren.

Rowena: It’s been a pretty slow reading week for me. I had family in town for my niece’s farewell this week (and Thanksgiving) and the last of our family left yesterday so I spent yesterday doing laundry and cleaning up the mess that was left behind. I did manage to get some reading done though.

I finished Save the Date by Carrie Aarons and didn’t particularly enjoy that one all that much. I moved on to My Favorite Half Night Stand by Christina Lauren and even though that book was problematic as hell, I still enjoyed it. Yesterday, I started listening to Ache for You by J.T. Geissinger and had to put it down with about 4 hours left of listening time because I wanted to, still want to, throat punch the heroine for being a whiny little piece of shit. I’ll finish listening to that today and then you’ll read all about my bitchy thoughts when I review that with Holly.

I started reading Once and for All by Sarah Dessen last night and so far, it’s good. I’m not bored, I don’t hate anyone yet but it’s still early days…haha. Just kidding. Seems like a bunch of characters are getting on my nerves these days. Anyway, after this book I’ll pick up The One You Fight For by Roni Loren cause I need to tackle my review pile before I get behind.

I hope everyone is having a great reading week!

Home--in the island village of Cloud Bay--is where the heart is. . .

Leah Santelli always knew that Zach Harper, son of a rock legend and her best friend's brother, was painfully out of reach. Then, on the night of her eighteenth birthday, Leah shocked herself by asking for--and receiving--the gift she wanted: one night of passion with Zach before he left town to pursue his rock star dreams. Now, years later, Zach is back in Cloud Bay to record his first solo album. His return could also be Leah's big chance to step up her own music career. But getting the producing credit she needs means spending long hours with Zach in the recording studio...and falling back into the habit of longing for him, for better or worse.

Zach used to believe that a man must put his past behind him. But coming back home for Cloud Bay's famed music festival has allowed him to finally make amends with his family and, much to his surprise, reunite with Leah. He might have left her once but now it seems he can't stay away. Trouble is, even though the heat between them burns hotter than ever, Leah has old wounds in need of healing before she can give Zach a real chance. Can he find a way to convince her that they can make more than just great music together--and that she's the one that he wants for all time?

What Are You Reading? (+ Christine Warren Giveaway)

Posted November 23, 2018 by Holly in Reviews | 7 Comments

Casee: I’m still reading and listening to what I was reading and listening to last week. It’s very sad.

I’m reading Vengeance Road by Christine Feehan and listening to Archangel’s Prophecy by Nalini Singh. We have family in town so I don’t have high hopes for reading this weekend. Wish me luck.

Holly: I had a pretty lame reading week. I’m trying to get everything ready for the holidays, plus we celebrate 4 birthdays this week, so my attention was elsewhere. I finished listening to The Christmas Cottage by Samantha Chase. It was pretty awful. The heroine and her best friend were both immature dummy-heads and the whole premise of the wedding + cottage was lame. I only finished it because I wanted to know what would happen with the best friend and her wedding. I’m sorry I wasted my time. I re-read Complicated by Kristen Ashley, the listened to Save a Truck, Ride a Redneck and Sweet Tea and Sympathy by Molly Harper, which were really cute. I’m not usually one for super light paranormals or contemporaries, but Molly Harper is really working for me lately. Both this series and the Mystic Bayou series hit me in the sweet spot.

I’m currently listening to Ain’t She a Peach by Molly Harper. I’m not sure what I’m going to read next, or if I’ll even have time. Hopefully I’ll have all day Saturday to read. Fingers crossed.

Rowena: In the week since I last posted about what I was reading, I had planned to listen to Archangel’s Storm by Nalini Singh, and read Save the Date by Carrie Aarons and well, that didn’t happen. Instead, I picked up My Best Friend’s Ex by Hazel Kelly and Friends with Benefits by Hazel Kelly. I enjoyed both books, though I enjoyed Friends with Benefits more. Carter and Nina were a fantastic couple! Now, I’m reading Save the Date by Carrie Aarons and though the heroine is a little hard to take (I really don’t understand her motivations behind some of her decisions), I’m still enjoying the read. After this, I’ll be picking up River Marked by Patricia Briggs because I can’t stay away from Mercy’s world for too long. I’m on a mission to be all caught up on that series before the year ends. Wish me luck!

Excerpt Spotlight: Too Far Gone by Allison Brennan

Posted November 19, 2018 by Rowena in Promotions | 1 Comment

Too Far Gone is the fourteenth book in the Lucy Kincaid series by Allison Brennan and it promises to keep your blood pumping with suspense and I’ve been in the mood for more suspense in my novels so I’m mighty interested in this one.

I don’t read too many romantic suspense books but after reading the blurb for this book, I was curious. Allison Brennan must be doing something right if she’s writing the fourteenth book in this series and it sounds like a good one so I’m thrilled to be spotlighting it here on Book Binge.

The next intense installment in Allison Brennan's New York Times bestselling Lucy Kincaid series.

Things finally seem to be going well for FBI Agent Lucy Kincaid. She's just finished training for Hostage Rescue, her husband's relationship with his son is back on track, and her tense relationship with her boss, Rachel Vaughn, has become much more bearable. That is, until her first hostage case throws everything off track.

When a man who appears under the influence and mentally unstable holds a group of people hostage and dies in a shootout with the FBI, Lucy is assigned to investigate what happened. His descent doesn't make any sense - he was an upstanding citizen a year ago and only started declining after a series of blackouts and strange occurrences. Even his autopsy seems suspicious, and the body has been cremated without the proper approval. As Lucy investigates, she realizes that this story may be more complicated than she thinks, and that her own life might be in danger.

Excerpt

CHAPTER TWO

FBI Special Agent Lucy Kincaid geared up in the back of the SWAT van and followed team leader Leo Proctor to the staging area kitty-corner to the coffeehouse that was currently under control of a gunman. Lucy wasn’t part of the SWAT team. She was the newest trained hostage negotiator, though she would be second to Proctor for a minimum of six months. She wouldn’t be talking to the suspect today; she was tagging along on her first official outing after completing Hostage and Crisis Response Training at Quantico.

As soon as she stepped out of the air-conditioned van and into the hot Texas humidity, she began to sweat. Fortunately, she wasn’t decked out with an extra twenty- five pounds of SWAT gear; she was only required to wear her Kevlar vest and sidearm.

The FBI was here to back up the SAPD, who were taking lead in the hostage situation at Java Antonio, a small but popular independent coffee shop in downtown San Antonio.

Lucy followed Leo from the van while the rest of the team checked their weapons and gear.

“Lieutenant, sit-rep?” Leo said to the man clearly in charge who was directing personnel from the back of a police communications van. There were a dozen city and county vehicles filling all four streets that led to the intersection, which now held a tactical truck. Each street had been blocked off, and all businesses in a two-block radius evacuated or locked down.

“Proctor. Glad you’re here.” He glanced at Lucy. “Agent Kincaid, hostage negotiator. Kincaid, Lieutenant Jordan Young.”

They shook hands. Young was forty and had the aura of former military officer, and it was clear by how his officers spoke to him that he garnered respect from his men and women.

“I need you to negotiate, Leo—I’ve already set up a command, I’m the highest-ranking officer here.”

“My people are your people,” Proctor said. “Kincaid’s my second.”

Being second essentially meant backing up the primary negotiator. Listening to all communication, taking notes, passing along information between the negotiator and command and vice versa.

Generally, the individual in charge of the scene was not the same person negotiating with the suspect. That SAPD and the SA-FBI worked well together was a testament to the men and women who led each department and the teams who cross-trained together.

“I have two snipers, one on each corner building,” Young said, gesturing. “Two men in the back. If you can spare a pair I’d like to have them tag up with my team in the alley, and if you have a sniper we can use one back there. The rear is the only exit other than the front door.” Proctor said in his radio, “Dunning, take your team and secure the back with SAPD; Ramirez, find a roost with clear line of sight to the emergency exit. From here on out, Lieutenant Young is in command of this operation and you’ll take direction from him, primary emergency channel.”

“Roger,” the team leader said over the radio. “Suspect?” Proctor asked.

Young shook his head. “Working on an ID. No cameras inside, but we have a description from one of the hostages who escaped during the initial confusion. In fact, a dozen people got out before the shooter locked down. From preliminary statements, the guy was talking to himself and acting ‘off’—weird was the word most used. He was wearing a thick windbreaker and it’s over ninety degrees and humid as hell. When the manager confronted him, he snapped—per a witness. Another witness said he acted like he was quote, ‘off his meds.’”

Unfortunately, Lucy knew that mental illness was one of the leading causes of spontaneous hostage situations. But generally, if the individual was mentally ill, they took people they knew hostage—family or friends—in a residence. This situation was distinctly different.

Young continued. “He fired two shots. Per witnesses, they both went into the ceiling. No one saw anyone injured inside. There are conflicting statements as to how many guns he has and what kind, though I’m going with one of the witnesses who stated he’s a gun owner and identified a nine-millimeter in the shooter’s hand, standard-capacity magazine, and a second handgun in his waistband, also a semi-auto—either a nine-mil or a forty-five.”

“Number of hostages?”

“Best guess is fourteen. Do you have thermal imaging in your truck? Fire can set up as well, but they’re still en route.”

“We got it,” Proctor said. “My tech just needs a minute.”

“Good. We need to know where he is, get some sense as to what’s going on in there.”

“Is this personal?” Proctor asked. “Target an employee? Customer?”

“Don’t know. We asked the witnesses for the basics, everyone said that he was alone and didn’t appear to know anyone. They are all sequestered down the street, my people are working to get more information. He hasn’t called out or made demands, but this whole thing started less than an hour ago. I need you to make contact, develop a rapport as we gather additional information. We need to de-escalate this as fast as possible.”

Proctor listened to his com then said, “Roger, hold positions.” He said to Young, “My team is in place, Ramirez has one hundred percent visual of the rear door.”

“Excellent.” Young handed him the bullhorn. “Work your magic, Leo. Godspeed.”

Proctor took a breath, visibly relaxed, then turned on the bullhorn.

“This is Leo Proctor of the FBI. I will be calling into the coffee shop. I’d like you to answer, just to talk. Just see how you’re doing, how the other people are doing.”

He then nodded to Young’s assistant, a uniform by the name of Jones, who handed him a phone already set to dial into the Java Antonio main number and record the conversation.

They let the phone ring more than thirty times. There was no answer and Proctor ended the call.

“Lieutenant,” Jones said after listening to his radio, “we have an ID. Charles James McMahon, forty-six, address in Helotes per DMV. Two deputies are on their way now.”

“Married? Kids? Employer?” “Unknown, we’re working on it.”

“Work faster. Something triggered him, we need to know what so no one gets hurt.”

“Yes, sir,” Jones said, already on his phone.

Proctor got on the bullhorn again. “Mr. McMahon— Charles—this is Leo Proctor. I really need you to pick up the phone. I know you don’t want to hurt anyone. We need to talk. You and me. We can work this out, but I’m sure you don’t like shouting through a bullhorn any more than I do.”

He dialed again, waited. No answer. He hung up. He didn’t show any frustration, any rush. “As long as he’s calm, we can get out of this,” he said almost to himself. “Lucy, get Yancey out here. We need eyes in.”

Lucy briskly walked to the tactical van. Tim Yancey was a technology analyst in their office and in charge of the equipment during tactical operations. He was a bit high-strung, skinny, and sharp on his feet.

“I know, I know,” Tim said before Lucy could speak. “It’s almost calibrated. Okay, okay,” he said to himself and followed Lucy over to the staging area which had a direct line of sight to the coffee shop.

“I need to expand the range,” he said as he walked up and put the thermal imaging camera on a table next to the SAPD tactical van. “Okay, okay,” he mumbled again and pressed a few buttons to expand the field.

A blob of orange quickly took on distinct human shapes. Most were on the floor. Young immediately pointed to one on the left that was moving and had another shape close to him. “That’s our guy. He’s holding a hostage. I count . . . fifteen plus the gunman?”

“I concur,” Proctor said.

Young asked Tim, “Why are these three shapes faded?”

“They’re in another room,” Tim said. “Probably the storage room, a bathroom—I don’t have the exact lay- out.”

Young motioned at one of his men. “Where are the blueprints I asked for?”

“Coming.”

“I needed them five minutes ago.” “He didn’t plan this,” Lucy said.

Everyone looked at her. She didn’t realize she’d spoken out loud.

“If he did,” she continued, “he would have made sure that everyone was in the main room. Those three had time to hide in the back and he didn’t notice? Others es- caped? A dozen people ran out before he locked the place down. I think he would notice if he had a room full of customers and no employees.”

“Point taken,” Young said. “Don’t know if that makes him more or less dangerous. Get him talking, Leo, I’m going to push my people to get us more intel.”

Leo used the bullhorn. “Charles, this is Leo Proctor again. I’m calling you now. Please pick up the phone.”

He hit redial.

Lucy adjusted her earpiece and heard the ringing phone. She watched Tim’s thermal imaging system and saw the suspect cross the room—with a hostage in tow—and stand next to what she presumed was the phone on the wall behind the counter.

“Answer it, buddy,” Leo mumbled. “Pick it up, you want to.”

The man put a hand on his head—more like he was banging the side of his head with his gun hand, as if flustered or frustrated. He walked away a couple of feet. Leo hung up. He counted to ten. Then he hit redial.

McMahon went back to the phone. He answered.

What Are You Reading? (+ Emma Douglas Giveaway)

Posted November 16, 2018 by Casee in Features, Giveaways | 11 Comments

WAYR-New

Casee: I am reading Vengeance Road by Christine Feehan. I really did enjoy Judgement Road which is the first book in the series. Torpedo Ink is a gritty spin-off of Sisters of the Heart about a motorcycle club. If you like your men extremely alpha and the strong females that don’t let them get away with much, you’ll like this series. You don’t have to read Sisters of the Heart to start Torpedo Ink.

I’m also listening to Archangel’s Prophecy by Nalini Singh. When I started reading it last week, it was really slow. Holly mentioned that I should re-read Archangel’s Heart then go back to Archangel’s Prophecy. I did that and am really enjoying Archangel’s Prophecy the second time around.

Holly: I finished listening to Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs. Now I’m sad all over again that I have to wait for another book in this series. I love Mercy and her band of scary werewolves. I can’t wait to see what Briggs is going to do next. After that I started listening to Raven’s Shadow by Briggs, A little Night Magic by Lucy March and The Restorer by Amanda Stevens. I ended up DNF’ing all 3. I was enjoying Raven’s Shadow, but the world is a bit too complex for me to focus on in audio. That’s a book I’ll need to read. The heroine of A Little Night Magic was driving me crazy and nothing about the Stevens novel worked for me. After that I listened to Chased and Making Chase by Lauren Dane. It was nice returning to the town of Petal and catching up with Chase family.

I read Mornings on Main by Jodi Thomas, which was sweet, but slow and I finished Sleepover by Serena Bell, which I enjoyed. I DNF’d Malcolm and Isabel by Julie Anne Long. This started as an epilogue in The Legend of Lyon Redmond back in 2015. She just released their novella and I thought I’d love it. Sadly, it isn’t working for me. It doesn’t help that she doesn’t include the original epilogue, yet starts the novella right where it left off, which made for some confusing reading until I finally just went back and read the epilogue again.

I’m currently listening to The Christmas Cottage by Samantha Chase.

Rowena: It’s been a slow reading week for me. It was my birthday on Tuesday and I had all these plans to go home and snuggle down in bed with my kindle but those plans went out with window when my sister called me and asked if I wanted to go with her to my nieces basketball game in Costa Mesa. I will never say no to watching Meghan play. She won her game and played well so I was happy with how I spent my birthday.

I managed to finish Mornings on Main by Jodi Thomas and thought it was a slow romance but sweet. Maybe too sweet. After that, the only other book that I read and I read it in one sitting so you know it was good stuff, is Fall (VIP #3) by Kristen Callihan. I really love John Blackwood. So, so much. His heroine Stella was pretty fantastic too.

Now, I’m planning on starting the audiobook for Archangel’s Storm (Guild Hunter #5) by Nalini Singh and reading Save the Date by Carrie Aarons.

It's Christmastime in the quaint island town of Cloud Bay, where love is always in season... Will Fraser has believed in love at first sight since the day he first laid eyes on Mina Harper five years ago. There was only one problem: She was happily married. Then, when Mina's husband was killed by a drunk driver, Will figured she'd want nothing to do with a guy who owns a whiskey distillery. So he's kept his feelings locked away, knowing that not even a Christmas miracle would be enough to melt Mina's heart. . . Mina believes her days of true love are behind her. Since losing her husband she's kept to herself, content to do her own painting and stay out of the limelight that comes with her famous family. But when, after a freak accident, Will comes to her rescue, Mina can't quite get him out of her mind. As curiosity turns into a fling during Cloud Bay's first Christmas Festival, she finds it harder to convince herself that her feelings for Will are just mistletoe-inspired. Could Mina be ready to lay the past to rest and finally admit that what she really wants for Christmas--and forever--is Will?
