In this stand-alone we follow Maggie as she learns that her best friend died of apparent suicide but she is not convinced. She uses all her resources to try and find out the truth, no matter what it may be.

If you have read the other books by KA Tucker then you know how she is able to create many different characters from different backgrounds and is able to shape them without taking up to much of the book or making it boring. Throughout this book we get to see Maggie now only through her eyes but Celine’s as well as she tries to figure out what happened to her friend.

There is a mystery to this story that forces you to try and figure out what happened like Maggie. As you read it you compile clues and try to figure it out before it’s revealed. What makes it difficult is that you only get Maggie’s perspective and her prejudices. But this makes a great mystery book because sometimes it forces you to overlook a clue and when the big reveal comes it’s more of a surprise.

I really like everything that Tucker has written so far and she is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. The stories draw you in and grab hold of you as you try to work out what is going to happen and prepare for the twist that you never see coming.

It takes a lot of skill to be able to write a story that keeps you a hold of you from start to finish. It’s one of those stories that you need to pay attention to, because if you don’t you will miss something important. Like Maggie, you go back and forth with what you think happened but when you get to truth, you will be shocked and amazed. Tucker knows how to write a twist that haves you sighing out loud because you can’t believe that you missed it.

KA Tucker is quickly becoming one of those authors that I will read a book from her just because she wrote it. It’s hard to find authors nowadays that can surprise you like she can and I can’t wait to read what she writes next.

Rating: A

You can buy the book on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iBooks and Kobo.

Book of the Week – ‘He Will be my Ruin’ by KA Tucker

he will be my ruin

Maggie is a billionaire philanthropist who discovers that her best friend Celine died of apparent suicide, but as Maggie dives into the world of Celine, she starts to wonder if there is more to the story then what is on the surface.

In this new book by K.A. Tucker, she touches on a thriller and romance. She has done romance in her last series but this will be more of a thriller as she adds a mysterious element to her stories. If you’ve read her Burying Water series then you know how she can write in depth characters with more layers then onions. The story should have a lot twists and turns and will keep you wanting more. Best news is that it is a stand-alone so there will be a resolution at the end of this story.

You can buy the book on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iBooks and Kobo.

#5 – Fighting Solitude by Aly Martinez

Out: 2/2

Goodreads page: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/23206499-fighting-solitude

In the third book of the series, we follow another person in the On the Ropes world that is struggling with wanting something (or someone) that he doesn’t think that he should have. It’s going to have the angst that we have come to love from the first two books as she makes him see that there is more to the world then what he thinks that he deserves. Especially because she sees what he can be instead of what he sees.

#4 – Wicked Sexy Liar by Christina Lauren

Out: 2/2

Goodreads page: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/21942346-wicked-sexy-liar

In the next book in this fun series by Christina Lauren, she dabbles in the dilemma of when you are attracted to your friend’s ex. Do you make a move? Or just play the role of ‘friend’ and have them be off limits. Though this ultimately makes them more attractive.

The fun series is a different and fun kind of romance novel. The sex scenes are scorching hot but it’s the conversations between the two characters that are fun to read. The other couples in the books that we have read have very real flaws and ways about them that makes this book series a must read.

#1 – Soulless by T.M. Frazier

Out: 2/23

Goodreads page: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/28020254-soulless

Fans of the world rejoice! Frazier has shown mercy on her fans and only forced them to wait two months for the sequel to the mother of all cliffhangers. Lawless had the fans in an uproar on the Facebook group demanding to know answers. In this book not only will we find out who ‘she’ is, but we will get a resolution that hopefully leaves us happy. I.e. Bear and Thia end up together because anything less may lead to a bigger uproar.
