Book Review… Blood Stream by Tess Gerritsen

bloodstream

Claire and her son Noah moved to Tranquillity from Baltimore hoping to get away from demons of the past. At first everything seems ok but then the town’s teenagers start filling with rage and people are killed at school shootings and children killing their own mothers. As the town Doctor Claire wants to know what has caused this and with the help of the chief of police Lincoln will she be successful?

This read more like a Stephen than  a Gerritsen, which possibly explains why I was quite so addicted to it. This is reminiscent of Needful Things from the king of horror, both books I read in less than two days.

Some of the scenes in the book made me recoil in horror and pretty much every page effected me somehow. I still can’t believe this book was only £1. These books may not contain the famous Rizolli and Isles but I think this could possibly be one of her best works.

Would I recommend it? Yes, if you are not squeamish

Score: 5/5

Teaser Review.. Your Favourite Girl by Steph Sweeney

steoh

********EROTICA REVIEW ********************

As you guys all know I LOVE Steph Sweeney’s erotica my reviews are here and here.

I was really excited when I saw this £0.77 teaser on Amazon, as you can imagine it is part of a full book and mixes erotica, fantasy and possible thriller all in one. Melissa discovers that her husband has been cheating on her with an 18 year old girl and after they enjoy a number of threesomes she decides to look through his stuff to find evidence of other girls and that’s when she finds the card for your favourite girl inc and decides to take a trip down to the basement under the jewellery store and that’s where she discovers flora..

I can’t do a full review as I haven’t read the whole book, but what I’ve read so far i have enjoyed. It has been quite a strange story but that has added to the erotica giving it a different dimension, I only want to know where the rest is now!

Book Review…Dead Run by Erica Spindler

dead run

Liz Ames receives a phone call telling her, her sister Rachel a pastor at a small town in Florida has gone missing.  Liz listens to her answer phone messages and there’s one from Rachel telling her about some illegal activity on the island but not giving much detail.  Liz decides tk move to Key West to investigate.  Not long after she moves there a young girl is murder and a bank manager commits suicide.
This is my second Erica Spindler book and Dead Run made me realise how much I love her writing style. At one stage I felt as if I was going crazy alongside Liz and did not know what to think. The character I really fell in love with was Carla the ‘meat and potatoes’ who eventually figured everything out. This book was just the right side of gory and definitely kept me interested.

Would I recommend this book? Yes
Score: 5/5

My Crown (a poem)

Even waking up so early,

I can’t avoid the hurly burly,

‘Cos the rain still pours down,

Knock off my bedtime crown,

Fast asleep in the dark night,

Everything seems just so right,

I’m pretty, tall and thin,

Importantly  I’m with him,

I can taste his kiss,

Feel his heat,

He touches me,

My heart skips a beat,

A horror film in a darkened room,

One romantic witness, a mortal doom,

But al too soon it’s morning,

And the rain is pouring,

The crown had now been stored away,

Locked away in my saddened heart,

Atleast we are only a day apart.
