November 5th Reviews

Free Agent (Mustangs Baseball) by Roz Lee

Free on Amazon

The stress of opening her own specialty bakery has kept Brooke tied up in knots, just not the kind she would prefer. When she spies the hunk of a Dom across the crowded bar, she’s intrigued, but his wristband indicates he’s off limits. That doesn’t stop her from doing the most daring thing she’s ever done to snag a man’s attention, but when things escalate beyond even her wildest imaginings, she can’t get out of there fast enough.
His contract with the Mustangs is set to expire at the end of the season, and third baseman, Todd Stevens is holding out for a longer, more lucrative deal as a free agent. Convinced more money and a new city will cure what ails him, he isn’t looking for a long-term relationship, much less a one-time hookup with a sub who doesn’t know her place. Unfortunately, the little minx eyeing him from across the room might just be the one to make him change his mind.

So, there were a few editing issues here. Also, it's hard to really connect with the characters. Other than him being greedy for more money and sex, Todd really doesn't sound appealing. Brooke, well you really don't get to know anything about her except what she does for work. There was barely much character development. I mean, if this is part of a series, shouldn't there be some substance to your characters? Yes, the sex was hot. But it's just so hard to enjoy a story when I hate the characters. I mean, he doesn't even tell her his last name!! Even after everything! Ugh. Sorry. I just couldn't enjoy this book.

SO, yes it's my fault I just saw the word rocker in the title and didn't read the description. What I didn't know is how religious a book it is. I'm all for someone have beliefs, but don't want them crammed down my throat. That aside, there's an amazing love story here. If it wasn't full of bible thumping, I would have rated it much higher. But that seems to drag the story down quite a bit, making it boring in parts. At first I was annoyed that she spends all this time pining away for someone who clearly didn't want her. But as the rest of the story developed, it turned out to be worth it. The ending was beautiful and definitely made up a little for all the drag me down parts. If you're a young christian woman, you'll enjoy this. Since I'm neither, I can only appreciate that it was well written, only a few editing mistakes and that there really is a decent love story buried in there.

Heads Up by Shaun Tennant

$0.99 Amazon
Five years ago, the police department was shattered when a psychotic hit man turned his rage
against homicide detectives and their families. Now, the evidence suggests that
the same killer has returned.

For Andy, a newly promoted supervisor who was targeted five years ago, digging
into this case could mean opening old wounds. For his former partner, a washed-out
drunk, those old wounds never healed at all...

This is a quick read, literally, in ten minutes, it was over. It's interesting, a twist on a cold case coming back to haunt some cops. But, in the beginning, I'm wondering if I missed a book and this is part of a series. It doesn't exactly open up with giving the reader what's going on. It felt a little confusing. There's some editing errors, formatting, but otherwise, not a horrible read. I enjoyed the twist, just wish it had been drawn out. It was a little too short for my taste, especially if paying 99 cents. It's not worth that.
