Cold Lake by Jeff Carson

Book Description:

Published: November 18, 2014

When a fisherman reels in a plastic bag containing a severed human head from the depths of Cold Lake, Colorado, Sheriff David Wolf and his deputies scramble to the scene, and quickly realize there are more surprises to be found below.

Their grim discoveries reopen a cold case Wolf’s father worked twenty-two years ago, and Wolf must try to succeed where his father failed before him. Wolf has the advantage on his dad, however, because he has bodies. Lots of them.

Amid sweeping political changes that have his department and the entire county on edge, Wolf and his deputies come to the disturbing realization there is a dangerous serial killer in their midst—one who will stop at nothing to remain hidden.

Can Wolf and his deputies unveil the truth before someone pays the ultimate price?

This fifth installment of the David Wolf series is chock-full of suspense, mystery, and action that will keep you glued to the pages through the final sentence.

Review –

This is the first book that I have read in the David Wolfe Series  because it was offered as a free digital book and I must say that I will definitely be reading more.  The plot of this book involves a cold case of several disappearances and it connects to the seven severed heads and one full body that has recently been  found in Cold Lake.  It is full of  suspense and heart stopping action.  I really did enjoy it, so if you like murder mysteries you might give this one a try.

Sweet Possessions (Sweet #5) by Maya Banks

Book Description:

Published: April 5, 2010

She’s a singer who lives for the spotlight—and can’t resist her adoring fans…
Outrageous and out-of-control, Lyric Jones is a spoiled pop star who lives hard and fast, always outrunning her past and the nightmares that haunt her. She’s used to getting what she wants—groupies included—because she can’t stand to be alone. So in bed, it’s the more the merrier, even if it means closing off the deepest part of herself…

He’s a hands-on bodyguard—and a one-woman man.
There is nothing Connor Malone wants to do less than babysit the celebratty songstress while she’s on vacation. But part of him relishes taming Lyric and showing her what it’s like to be possessed—body and soul—by one man. And though Lyric’s crazy antics nearly drive Connor to the edge, his quiet intensity penetrates her defenses, leaving them both vulnerable to the secrets that could topple Lyric from the stage.

Review –

All of the other books in the Sweet Series by Maya Banks are very very kinky and full of explicit sex, but while this one has some explicit sex it is all on the “vanilla” side because that’s just the way the character of Connor rolls. 

Connor is in charge of the safety and security for rock star, Lyric Jones (not her real name) and she is doing everything to make his job a living hell. She is contrary, hard headed, stubborn, and everything a typical rock star is know for being.  But, she has a dark secret, and with Connor’s help she confides in him and that changes everything.  There is a stalker theme in the story but it’s weak.

I enjoyed the audio version and the narrator did a fantastic job. The Sweet Series  gets an A+

Dirty Bad Savage (Dirty Bad #2) by Jade West

Book Description:

Published: June 7, 2015

They say Callum Jackson’s a savage.
No home. No prospects. No self-restraint.
He’s red-flagged on my system, a grade-1 aggression risk, totally off limits for a woman like me.
But the rules don’t allow for my dangerous games; they don’t bend for my twisted desires.
Callum Jackson is the most beautiful beast.
A beast I can’t stop thinking about, can’t stop wanting, can’t stop hunting…
…I just pray to God this beast bites.

Sophia Harding runs a tight ship. She may work in the dregs of housing association slums, but her patch is on the way up.
Anti-social behaviour is down, employment is on the rise, and she’s even been shortlisted for estate manager of the year.
It’s looking good. Really good. Until Callum Jackson completes his jail time and lands right back on her doorstep.
She could do without a guy like him on her books: a failure of the system and a pain in the fucking ass.
She should tick the boxes, do her job and keep her distance – that’s what the handbook says. The handbook says no one-on-one contact, no at-risk situations, no direct confrontation of any kind.
But the handbook doesn’t know of her craving for hardcore submission.
The handbook has no fucking idea how she yearns to unleash Jackson at club Explicit, where his savage can really run wild.
The handbook doesn’t know shit…

Review –

While Dirty Bad Wrong was really really hot, Dirty Bad Savage is really really dirty.

Neither book is for the shy or weak hearted, they are dark and gritty and make you say “Whoa, what just happened?”

This story has more emotional depth to it. Callum and Sophia  each come with their own baggage. Callum is rough and dirty and has had a very hard life from the beginning. He will survive not matter what he has to do.  Sophia, on the other hand, is from a wealthy family and has a stable job but behind the facade hides a very different girl with needs that are questionably, even to Callum, at first.

They finally find in each other what they need but the journey is very dark, dirty and shocking.

The sex scenes are very hot and very dirty.

If you enjoyed Jade West’s first book you will enjoy this one.
