Happy Friday!

Excited to share with you today my review for this intriguing book that took me by surprise!Always great when a book exceeds expectations and this book certainly did!👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

My Thoughts

50% Spy Thriller. 50% Legal Thriller. 100% Thrilling!

Wow! Robert Dugoni you have a new fan, right here! This was a wild action packed story bursting with intrigue and adventure. I don’t read many spy thrillers, but this one was done extremely well. I was seriously on the edge of my seat this entire book and when the spy thriller turned into a legal thriller this book was just as compelling and nerve-racking. Reading this book was like watching an intense action adventure movie, but better.

Charles Jenkins is exCIA now running a security company in Seattle. Now a family Man with a loving wife, a nine-year-old son, and a baby on the way. When Charles is approached by the CIA to go back into Russia he cannot resist the paycheck, it will get his business out of the red. But the assignment and the people involved aren’t quite what they seem. Soon Charles discovers himself in the middle of a precarious situation, in terrible danger. Now he finds himself on a chase across Europe, fighting to save his life, and the lives of those he loves. What transpires is a riveting tale that will keep you glued to the pages.

This book definitely got my heart pounding. I had no idea how Charles was going to get himself out of this situation. Charles was very likable, reminiscent of the spies of old. In fact this entire book had a bit of a nostalgic feel to it, a homage to Russian spy books of the past. All the secondary characters are as interesting as Charles, even the relentless Russian.

A riveting story that will quench your thirst for action, adventure, and spies! Definitely recommend!

About the Book

New York Times bestselling author of the Tracy Crosswhite Series.

Former CIA case officer Charles Jenkins is a man at a crossroads: in his early sixties, he has a family, a new baby on the way, and a security consulting business on the brink of bankruptcy. Then his former bureau chief shows up at his house with a risky new assignment: travel undercover to Moscow and locate a Russian agent believed to be killing members of a clandestine US spy cell known as the seven sisters.

Desperate for money, Jenkins agrees to the mission and heads to the Russian capital. But when he finds the mastermind agent behind the assassinations—the so-called eighth sister—she is not who or what he was led to believe. Then again, neither is anyone else in this deadly game of cat and mouse.

Pursued by a dogged Russian intelligence officer, Jenkins executes a daring escape across the Black Sea, only to find himself abandoned by the agency he serves. With his family and freedom at risk, Jenkins is in the fight of his life—against his own country.

You’d Be Mine by Erin Hahn @erinhahn_author @StMartinsPress @WednesdayBooks #bookreview #youdbemine

TGIF!

Excited to share with you my review for this sweet young adult romance that made me smile!😍

My Thoughts

A sweet love story lively with swoon and swagger!

Erin Hahn’s debut is a lively heart warming contemporary YA romance. The kind of book that puts a BIG smile on your face! The thing I really like about young adult romance is how innocent it is; how everything is just so exaggerated, because it is the first time these characters have ever felt this way. I guess I appreciate that the characters have not been jaded yet and I can forgive them their naïveté because they are young. Perhaps I long for the days when I was a little more naïve and a little less jaded.

Annie and Clay are up-and-coming country stars. Clay has a bit of a bad boy reputation, his label insists he gets Annie to tour with him to help repair his image. Annie is the daughter of two major country legends who died tragically, determined not to follow in her parents footsteps she is extremely hesitant to step into the spotlight. The two end up touring together and what follows is a Sweet relationship, that I am sure every reader and fan was rooting for. Of course as in all good teen romances this book had plenty of drama, angst, and emotion. I believe Miss Hahn did a wonderful job handling the drama, and the ending… perfect!

Annie and Clay were great characters and I loved the relationship between them. Annie had such a quiet confidence and a sweetness about her. Clay was really a good guy in and boy clothing. The two of them together were quite magical, especially when it came to the music. Erin Hahn brought such strong voices to these characters that I feel as though I’ve heard them sing.

A lovely little gem of a book, perfect for readers of all ages who love the love.💕

About the Book

“Witty and charming, with an off-the-charts, irresistible blend of romance, humor, and characters who steal your heart from page one. Erin Hahn is an author to watch.” (Karen M. McManus, New York Times best-selling author of One of Us Is Lying)
Annie Mathers is America’s sweetheart and heir to a country music legacy full of all the things her gran warned her about. Superstar Clay Coolidge is most definitely going to end up one of those things.   
But unfortunately for Clay, if he can’t convince Annie to join his summer tour, his music label is going to drop him. That’s what happens when your bad-boy image turns into bad-boy reality. Annie has been avoiding the spotlight after her parents’ tragic death, except on her skyrocketing YouTube channel. Clay’s label wants to land Annie, and Clay has to make it happen.   
Swayed by Clay’s undeniable charm and good looks, Annie and her band agree to join the tour. From the start, fans want them to be more than just tour mates, and Annie and Clay can’t help but wonder if the fans are right. But if there’s one part of fame Annie wants nothing to do with, it’s a high-profile relationship. She had a front-row seat to her parents’ volatile marriage and isn’t interested in repeating history. If only she could convince her heart that Clay, with his painful past and head-over-heels-inducing tenor, isn’t worth the risk.   
Erin Hahn’s thrilling debut,
 You’d Be Mine, asks: Can the right song and the perfect summer on the road make two broken hearts whole?
