The Capture (Griffin Force #3) by Julie Coulter Bellon *book review and giveaway*

The Capture (Griffin Force #3) by Julie Coulter Bellon

I have read all three books in the Griffin Force series and they are all outstanding! “The Capture” is book 3 is just as good, if not better.

The story line was fast paced from the first page to the last. I was gasping and on the edge of my seat for most of the book, especially the first several chapters. (my husband kept asking me if I was okay) It was hard to read Zaya’s experiences while in prison, but it made the characters and story line more realistic especially in their line of work. I really like the Griffin Force team characters and how they interact and take care of eachother like family.

I highly recommend this series if you enjoy lots of action and adventure. I absolutely loved it and my almost 16 year old loves this series too. This is a series of books that I will read again and again.

About the Book
Julian Bennet, head of Griffin Force, finally finds love with Zaya Altes, but the day he buys her an engagement ring, international terrorist Nazer al-Raimi abducts her. Getting her back consumes him, yet it takes nearly six months to find her. The daring mission to extract her from a hidden prison in Afghanistan is successful, but Zaya has suffered during captivity. Though she’s grateful to Julian for breaking her out, she wants nothing to do with him. Before he can show her how much he still loves her, Nazer finds them and vows revenge. Can Julian keep Zaya safe and still stop Nazer once and for all?

Zaya Altes nearly gave up hope of ever being rescued, but when Griffin Force finally finds her, returning to life is harder than she imagined. While her feelings for Julian are as strong as ever, she feels too broken to recapture what they once had. Instead, Zaya jumps at a chance to trap Nazer, wanting vengeance for what she’s endured. As the final showdown draws near, however, Zaya will have to make an unimaginable choice to let Nazer close to her again. But when a shocking web of betrayal is uncovered in their own ranks, their one chance to capture him is compromised. Julian and Zaya will put everything on the line, but can they survive this ultimate test and finally reach for their chance at happiness?

“Lily of the Manor” by Anita Stansfield *review and giveaway*

“Lily of the Manor” by Anita Stansfield

This was a beautiful historical fiction romance book. I really liked the main characters Lily and Frederick and how caring they were to each other, the children, people in need, their employees, and all of society. They were both good decent people! Lily adopted 11 children and took care of them in her home and met Frederick when he asked a help wanted to be a schoolteacher for the children. Lily was a brave, caring mother to her children and wanted to teach her kids how to love and care for others. When she discovers a child in need she goes above the law to try and help but sometimes things don’t work out so well.

The story line flowed nicely and kept my interest-not too slow. I really enjoyed this historical, Christian romance. It was set in northern England in the early 1800s.

About the book:
Broadbent Manor is a home brimming with life and love. With eleven adopted children in her care, young widow Lily Broadbent is in search of the right tutor to instruct and nurture her young charges. So when Frederick Woodstone arrives on her doorstep seeking the position, Lily is quickly impressed by his qualifications—but even more pleased with his gentle manner and immediate rapport with the children that society cast aside. It is clear: Mr. Woodstone is a perfect fit for the family.
From the moment he arrives at the manor, Frederick is enchanted by the lady of the house. Lily is a pillar of strength and compassion, and her striking beauty is undeniable. As the pair works side by side to teach the children, their professional association evolves into something far deeper. But when they stumble upon a young boy in dire circumstances, their relationship is put to the test as Lily makes the impetuous decision to rescue the child—no matter the consequences. What follows is a chain of events that will threaten all that Lily has built for her young family, as the fight for the safety of one small boy becomes a battle between life and death.

The Candidate (A Newsmakers Novel)by Lis Wiehl

The Candidate (A Newsmakers Novel)by Lis Wiehl

I didn’t realize this was book 2 of 3 in the Newsmakers Series so I felt a little lost with the characters and story development because I haven’t read book 1.

This story had lots of political and media drama, as well as lots of suspense. It has alot of great reviews but I didn’t particularly care for it because of the amount of politics involved in this story. I didn’t look at the book description good enough when I requested this book for review.

I received a copy of this ebook complimentary for blog and social media review. All opinions are my own.

About the Book

Is Celeste really who she seems? And most importantly, what really happened in that squalid Al-Qaeda prison where Mike Ortiz spent nine months?

“Falling for Sydney” by Heather B. Moore

Falling for Sydney by Heather B. Moore

This story was a quick read since its only 78 pages, 11 chapters long. “Falling for Sydney” is book 1 (of 3) in the new “Falling” series by author Heather Moore. Sydney, Maria and June meet their senior year and work on the same American History class project together. They become very good friends and attend Washington University together. All three books in this series are all tied together involving the same girls but focusing on one girl at a time.

Sydney is a beautiful girl, popular, has a great job and is ready to get married. However when she sees a strange truck parked at her finance’s house all night, she wonders why the uneasy feeling in her stomach won’t go away. She then meets Jake who supposedly is Rian’s brother and shares with her all these stories about her Fiancee’s past. Sydney has to decide what facts are true and whether she wants to continue with her future plans with him.

This was a clean, quick, fun romance story. I think there is one swear word. I can’t wait to read the other 2 books in this series.
