My stomach dropped as a tall, dark-haired man stepped into view. Had he been hiding between the trees? No.Sorry. “Gulping”. I took a step back.” I’m not Lily”. “I’m Summer”. You have the wrong person. “You utter freak”! I could hear my pulse crashing in my ears. How stupid to give him my real name. He continued to stare at me, smiling. It made me feel sick. “You are Lily”, It made me sick. Before I could blink, he threw his arms forward and grabbed me. I tried to shout, but he clasped his hand over my mouth, muffling my screams. I’m going to die!

Summer gets kidnapped by this guy and puts her into a sound proof cellar, when she looks around she notices three other girls there who he also calls by a flower name “WTF” she thinks what is going on? She is completely freaked out, but the other girls are acting like this is normal cooking, cleaning! Are they brainwashed? What is going on down here? Why are they acting this way instead of trying to escape. Her boyfriend and family are frantic what could have happened to her and nobody saw or heard anything they have no leads at all even police can’t seem to find any evidence. They start a party search, post flyers, and have a tip line going! And the kidnapper is right there beside her boyfriend and family willing to help!!! I’m going to give this book a 3 out of 5 stars, it was a bit slow in some parts, but the last few chapters was pretty good and the ending and outcome was a good plot twist!

But even true love can shatter when unforeseeable forces are at play when insecurities and fears remain when the deeds of one negatively affect the other when secretes linger. Jack and Ellie bet everything on each other. But as their relationship deepens, so do the complications. Love and ardent passion, Hope and distrust, growth and failures, normality and chaos, honesty, and misunderstandings, All coexist within The Thing About Ever After…This is the sequel to The Thing About Love!

I completely fell in love with Jack and Ellie in The Thing about Love, so I couldn’t wait for book two! They are completely crazy in love about each other so they decided to get married right away, but of course plan a wedding for family and friends in a couple of months. They come to learn about living together, and of course their sexual chemistry is as strong as ever! All of sudden Ellie gets these text messages from an unknown person saying they have been intimate with her husband while she was away on a business trip, she dismisses because she knows how much Jack loves her, but how well does she really know him? Did they get married to fast? Does he have any secrets? I could go on and on about this book but I don’t want to spoil it! This book is so well written I love the story line because no matter what a relationships goes through love can conquer all obstacles or can it? I guess you will have to read this book so you can find out! And remember Mike from book one well guess what he is back and full of surprises!!!  I definitely give this book a 4 out of 5 stars! So well worth the read! You can pick up your copy at a great price on Amazon! 

Pretty Baby By: Mary Kubica/ Book Review

Synopsis:

Heidi Wood has always been a charitable women. Still, her husband and daughter are horrified when Heidi returns home one day with a young women named Willow and her four month-year old baby in tow. Disheveled and apparently homeless, this girl could be a criminal-or worse. Nevertheless, Heidi invites Willow and the baby to take refuge in their home, despite her family’s objections. As clues into Willow’s past begin to surface, Heidi is forced to decide how far she’s willing to go to help a stranger. What starts as an act of kindness quickly spirals into an unrelenting web of lies and a story far more twisted than anyone could have anticipated.

Review:

This book is a Psychological Thriller! 414 pages!

This story is told by three people Heidi, her husband Chris, and Willow. Where to begin this book was so good!!! Heidi sees a girl with her baby at a train station on her way to work and wonders why this girl is there with a baby in the cold, she can’t stop thinking about this girl all day and everyday until she sees her again still with the same clothes the suitcase and the baby. She starts to wonder why and what she is doing out there, then one day she decided to bring her home. Her husband and her twelve-year-old daughter think she is crazy for bringing a complete stranger into their home. Chris decided to do some investigation on this girl to find out who she is and where she came from. He only finds a twitter account with her name, but the picture isn’t of Willow it’s another girl named willow could this just be a coincidence he thinks. Is Willow even her real name? Where are her parents? And the baby’s father? Is she a criminal out on the run or just a runaway girl with nowhere to go? This story is so intense that it had me hooked right off the first page! The Plots and Twists, I couldn’t read fast enough! There is a bit of sexual mature content in this book!

Overall I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars if you enjoy Psychological Thrillers I would recommend this book!

 

 

The Amityville Horror By: Jay Anson/ Book Review

61JwiYeoFtL

 

On December 18, 1975, a young family of five moved into their new home, complete with finished basement, swimming pool, and boathouse. Twenty-eight days later, they fled in terror, leaving most of their belongings behind. The fantastic story of their experiences was widely publicized on network television, newspaper, and national magazines. But the Lutz family never disclosed the full details to the media. Now their own carefully reconstructed memories-and independent interviews with local clergy and police-reveal their entire harrowing story. George and Kathleen Lutz were aware that the house had been the scene of a mass murder Ronnie DeFeo 23 was convicted of shooting his parents, brothers, and sisters. But it seemed an ideal home for them and their three children, and the price was right. On the day they moved in , a priest invited to bless the house was told by an unseen voice to ‘GET OUT”. At his rectory, he began to suffer a series of inexplicable afflictions. Meanwhile, alone in their new home, the Lutz family embarking on the most terrifying experience of their lives. It began when their five-year old daughter boasted of her new playmate, Someone–or Something– named “Jodie”. The Amityville Horror is an unforgettable book with all the shocks and gripping suspense of The Exorcist, The Omen, or Rosemary’s baby– but with one vital difference! As the author reports, To the extent that I can verify them, all the events in this book are true.

I have loved watching The Amityville Horror movies “Since I’m a huge horror lover” While watching the movies it was a little hard to believe that those things actually happened to the Lutz family. I ended up coming across this book while browsing the bookstore and decided to pick it up, since it had great reviews also on Goodreads. As I was reading the book I couldn’t believe the horror that this family experience in the house for 28 days I don’t think I would have even lasted 3 days!!! I’m sure a lot of people have heard about Amityville or have seen the movie. Comparing the book to the movie it was really somewhat on point to what was written in the book obviously the book is a bit more detailed than the movie. This book is very creepy, and very detailed with everyone’s experience and the fear and emotions they experience while living there. Also talks about the experience of the Priest who tried to bless the house and the horror that followed him, just for trying to help this family. So Crazy!!! If you’re a believer or not this book is still a great read especially if you like reading horror books, I would defiantly recommend it! As for myself I don’t know I guess it could have happened I mean why else would a family flee after sinking all their money into a house after 28 days leaving all their belongings behind! I did do some research and I have found that the house is sold with family living in their!

Forbidden By: Tabitha Suzuma/ Book Review

Sometimes love Chooses you….

Lochan and Maya have always felt more like friends than siblings. Together, they have stepped in for their unreliable, alcoholic mother to take care of their three younger siblings. The stress of their lives-and the way they understand each other so completely-has brought them closer than two siblings would ordinarily be. So close that they have fallen in love. Lochan and Maya know their relationship is wrong and cannot possibly continue. And yet they are powerless to stop what feels so incredibly right….

How can love be so wrong but feel so right!

 

Lochan and Maya are sibling who became a team in caring for their younger siblings, in the mix of all that something formed, something that was so wrong in the eyes of society, but to them felt so right that no one would ever understand ‘Love has no boundaries” !

This story was so wrong in so many ways, I never thought I would actually buy and read a book about incest, but I did!!! This book had such and emotional impact on me it was beautiful written, heartbreaking, and so powerful by the end  of the book I was in complete tears! I was not prepared for it! This is probably a book that will stay with me for a awhile I absolutely loved it! 

You think no one else understands, but you’re wrong. I do. You’re not alone!
