Vixen- Jillain Larkin

Vixen, by Jillian Larkin.  A terrific debut novel!  This is a sexy, romantic book about the Roaring Twenties, for teens!  It is highly appropriate for teens.  Sexy, without any obligatory sex scenes.  Romantic without being gushy.  I enjoyed it very much, and once I started reading could not put it down!  Thanks!  I received this book free through Barnes & Noble's First Look program, but I am under no obligation to give a favorable review.

Unholy Domain

This fast- paced thriller by Dan Ronco had me turning pages until late into the night!  The recent genre of techno -thriller is not usually what I would reach for for recreational reading, but I was intrigued quickly.  What had me from the first page,  was the futuristic realism of a Great Depression, was not only scary, but also plausible!  There3 was more than enough to keep me turning pages, long after when I should have been asleep for the night!  A solid 3 stars!  and leaning to 4!  Bravo!  I throughly enjoyed this book.!  I have to say that I received this book for review through LibraryThing Early reviewer program, but I am not obligated to give a favorable review.

***** Aptly Titled! *****

 Fitzpatrick's second novel in the bestselling Hush, Hush series "Crescendo", definitely lives up to its title. The action rises completely to the max, a most intense climax, and twists all the way to the final page. I devoured it completely, and enjoyed every morsel! From its humble beginning, all the way through each turn the story takes, it kept me enthralled! I was not sure if the author was going to be able to continue the success of the first novel, but she clearly has outdone herself. Kudos to Ms. Fitzpatrick, and and I am more than ready for the third in the series! Thanks Becca once again! I received this book free through Barnes and Nobles First Look program
