Callan (Review)

About the book:

Callan

by Sybil Bartel

(Uncompromising #5)

Publication date: March 20th 2018

Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Synopsis:

Callan

I was trained to be a hunter. Growing up in the nation’s most infamous, violent cult—my job was simple. Track. Kill. Survive.

And that’s what I did… until our leader threatened to kill his own daughter.

Refusing to watch another senseless murder, I did what I was trained to do. I took his life, claimed his land, and set every member free, including her. I only had one goal left. Find the sister I was told was dead.

But being a hunter in the woods is a far cry from tracking a woman in Miami Beach.

I didn’t find my sister.

I found someone else.

CALLAN is the fifth standalone book in the exciting Uncompromising Series!

Review:

3,5 🌟 🌟 🌟 💫

First book about someone’s life after getting out of a ‘cult’ I’ve read.

In general, I’ve liked it. The first 3 chapters I was lije ‘ok I don’t know what’s going on, what’s happening in’ but it was necessary too much action in just a few pages for the story.

Callan’s way to be is marked by his past on the compound and it’s shown perfectly. His sort of robotic way of talking, his behaviour, how he showed his emotions and his empathy. For me, they seemed cute and adorable at times, although in this current era there are things that a woman should not accept. He wasn’t disrespectful to women and when he was (sometimes he didn’t notice he was because he thought how he was acting or what he was saying was normal) he apologised.

Emily is the perfect prototype of what an independent woman is known to be: works and studies, doesn’t needs a man to be complete or to protect her, can speak for herself. Generally, her character was liked but when she doubted herself and the reassurance came from the male part was just a big contradiction. If she thinks she doesn’t need a man to protect her why is she only reassured by one. That is my main problem with her and the book. I believe in strong characters that fight for themselves, even if sometimes they need a push.

Their chemistry was really good and developed in a good way during the book.

Other characters, I liked most of them, but Phoebe (her sister) was a bit insufferable.

Overall, it’s a good book about a taboo topic, cult religions, so go check it out!!!

AUTHOR BIO:

Sybil Bartel grew up in Northern California with her head in a book and her feet in the sand. She dreamt of becoming a painter but the heady scent of libraries with their shelves full of books drew her into the world of storytelling. She loves the New Adult genre, but any story about a love so desperately wrong and impossibly beautiful makes her swoon.

Sybil now resides in Southern Florida and while she doesn’t get to read as much as she likes, she still buries her toes in the sand. If she isn’t writing or fighting to contain the banana plantation in her backyard, you can find her spending time with her handsomely tattooed husband, her brilliantly practical son and a mischievous miniature boxer…

But Seriously?

Here are ten things you probably really want to know about Sybil.

She grew up a faculty brat. She can swear like a sailor. She loves men in uniform. She hates being told what to do. She can do your taxes (but don’t ask). The Bird Market in Hong Kong freaks her out. Her favorite word is desperate…or dirty, or both—she can’t decide. She has a thing for muscle cars. But never reply on her for driving directions, ever. And she has a new book boyfriend every week—don’t tell her husband.

Pride & Surrender Reveal

Pride & Surrender

by Jennifer Dawson

Publication date: April 24th 2018

Genres: Adult, Contemporary

Synopsis:

I want no part of messy emotions, of lust and surrender. But none of that seems to matter to Christos Constantine. No matter how much I resist, no matter how much I fight, he keeps coming after me…and I am powerless.

My pride and strength of will have always kept me safe. The armor I’ve built around me is impenetrable and no one is allowed to see beneath. I’ve kept Christos and the attraction that simmers between us at bay for two long years, but he’s done taking no for an answer.

I don’t think I have the strength of will to resist, but I will not go down without a fight.

Two Wedding Crashers (cover reveal)

Book 2 in the series by numbers by Meghan Quinn

I don’t know what love is anymore.

Well, that’s not entirely true, but I’m going to tell you a little secret: I’ve lost the spark.

You know the kind of spark I’m talking about?

Where butterflies take flight in your stomach from two hands innocently colliding. Or catching your breath when you first meet someone attractive. Yeah, that spark.

Except I haven’t felt that feeling in forever; there is nothing left inside of me.

Normally, this wouldn’t be a problem–but I’m a writer on a serious deadline, and my editor is breathing down my neck for a romantic, Nicholas Sparks type love story. No pressure, right?

That’s how I find myself flying across the country to crash a wedding in the name of research, dress and heels stuffed into my small suitcase.

It should be the easiest book research ever. Drinking some free champagne, basking in the love of two strangers, and tapping into my romantic side. That will be a breeze. I’m a pro. I can handle this.

Until I mistakenly end up in the wrong hotel room, naked as the day I was born, with the sexiest human I have ever met staring me down, wondering what I’m doing taking a shower in his bathroom. I don’t think calling it research will get me out of this pickle.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!
