An Excerpt from the Book

Take an inside look at First Crush, Last Love with this enticing excerpt.
Jessie flipped on the foyer light and her nerves relaxed until she saw the rug at the bottom of the stairs. It was askew. Her eyes darted over the space in front of her. Everything else was in its proper place. Besides the inability to pick faithful husbands, she and her mother shared the rarely appreciated trait of compulsive neatness.
She thought back to when she had left the house earlier. Maybe in her haste to meet Sarah, her foot had slid the rug out of place as she came down the stairs. But she would have straightened it. Unless she didn’t notice . . . but she would have noticed . . . because that’s how she was.
She inched into the kitchen and picked up the phone. She’d call the police and ask them to search the house. Because of a cockeyed rug? Even in her paranoid state, she knew it would sound crazy. Their first question would be, “How much did you have to drink tonight, Ms. Baxter?”
She shook her head. For all the bravado she showed in front of Lee, here she was acting like a scared twelve-year-old, alone for the first time while her parents were on a date night. Her mom had offered to cancel her trip to London when Jessie told her the date of the class reunion, but Jessie had insisted she go. Since retirement, these trips had become her mom’s main source of entertainment.
She rummaged in her purse until her fingers found her pepper spray. With the canister at arm’s length, she circled each room on the first floor, testing the locks on the windows. Everything seemed in order. She let out a breath and grasped the banister leading upstairs with her free hand while her foot straightened the rug.
The steps to the second floor creaked under Jessie’s weight. She shuddered at the eerie feeling the empty house gave off. Still clutching the pepper spray, she checked the windows upstairs before collapsing on the bed in her childhood room. The house was too big for one person. She didn’t know how her mom stood it. Maybe tomorrow she’d move to Sarah’s. They could have a slumber party like old times.
Old times. Lee Archer. Wow. Her smile turned into a yawn. Something itched at the back of her mind, but after seven hours in a car and a few more in the bars, she gave into heavy eyelids and fell into an uneasy sleep.
At three in the morning, her eyes flew open and she clutched the comforter to her chin.
Underwear. A pair of lacy, black underwear hung from the top rail of the desk’s chair. No way in hell had she done that.

Audiobook Review: The Punch Escrow

Author: Tal M. Klein

Narrator:Matthew Mercer

Length: 8 hours 42 minutes

Publisher: Audible Studios

Released: Jul. 25, 2017

Genre: Tecnothriller

It’s the year 2147. Advancements in nanotechnology have enabled us to control aging. We’ve genetically engineered mosquitoes to feast on carbon fumes instead of blood, ending air pollution. And teleportation has become the ideal mode of transportation, offered exclusively by International Transport—a secretive firm headquartered in New York City. Their slogan: Departure… Arrival… Delight!

 

Joel Byram, our smartass protagonist, is an everyday twenty-second century guy. He spends his days training artificial intelligence engines to act more human, jamming out to 1980’s new wave—an extremely obscure genre, and trying to salvage his deteriorating marriage. Joel is pretty much an everyday guy with everyday problems—until he’s accidentally duplicated while teleporting.

 

Now Joel must outsmart the shadowy organization that controls teleportation, outrun the religious sect out to destroy it, and find a way to get back to the woman he loves in a world that now has two of him.

 

 

Tal M. Klein was born in Israel, grew up in New York, and currently lives in Detroit with his wife and two daughters. When she was five years old, his daughter Iris wrote a book called I’m a Bunch of Dinosaurs that went on to become one of the most successful children’s book projects on Kickstarter ―something that Tal explained to Iris by telling her, “your book made lots of kids happy.” Iris then asked Tal, “Daddy, why don’t you write a book that makes lots of grownups happy?” Tal mulled this over for a few years, and eventually wrote his first book, The Punch Escrow. It won the Inkshares Geek & Sundry Hard Science Fiction publishing contest, and is the first book published on the Geek & Sundry imprint.

WebsiteTwitterFacebook

 

“The Punch Escrow” is one amazing adventure in a world beyond our imagination. Well, beyond my own imagination at least. And experiencing it in audio was worth it. I do not dive into a Sci-Fi book lightly, so for sure listening to the book was a major contributor to my final rating.

So the story is as described in the blurb, I will not insist upon that. In a way, the author uses this book to touch some delicate subjects like how the corporations influence our lives or how technology get in conflict with religion. The basic one is that we will become so depended of innovation that we will lose ourselves, we will lose our identity. However, the main character faces common issues in his marriage, which he tries to solve as 2017 people do.

There are some funny stories here and there, my favorite being a part describing McDonald’s Big Mac. These elements are told as if it was a known thing, something that is contained in the last…130 years or so.  The familiar tone is very enjoyable and the mix between technical terms and common explanations blends very nicely.

As for the quality of the narration, I can only say it was really really great. I have never heard a narrator sing J And he does it so well. He is so expressive and so funny. He is your best friend, the one who tells you his  crazy story. The audio format is definitely worth your time.

All in all, I liked it well enough to give it 4 out of 5 stars. The world building is amazing, the narration is amazing but for me there was something missing. Probably because I am not a Sci-Fi reader normally. Hope you like it and come back with your comments J

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Tal M. Klein. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Q&A with Author Tal M. Klein
  • How did you select your narrator, Matthew Mercer?

I always knew I wanted Matt Mercer to narrate my book, the hard part was getting him to agree to do it. Between Critical Role and his various Nerdist responsibilities, he’s also an incredibly prolific voice actor. Recording an audiobook is a serious time commitment! There was also the challenge of getting Audible to agree to having Matt do the book because he’d never done an audiobook before. Ultimately I got lucky in that Matt read my book, liked it, agreed to do the audiobook, and Audible was easily convinced to sign off once they heard his voice acting reel. The rest is history!

  • How closely did you work with Matthew before and during the recording process? Did you give him any pronunciation tips or special insight into the characters?

Matt is a consumate professional. We did one session on pronounciation, but everything else was entirely in his court. I wanted him to make my book is canvas. He did an outstanding job.

  • How do you manage to avoid burn-out? What do you do to maintain your enthusiasm for writing?

The Inkshares community is incredibly supportive, so they are owed a lot of credit, but my wife deserves the lion’s share. She was my rock throughout the writing process and the book would have never gotten finished without her support and enthusiasm.

  • Are you an audiobook listener? What about the audiobook format appeals to you?

I love audiobooks, though I tend to prefer listening to nonfiction. One of the reasons I was so particular about choosing Matt Mercer to do my book is because I knew he would give each chracter a unique voice. I feel like many fiction audiobooks lose me when they are narrated in monotone.

  • Is there a particular part of this story that you feel is more resonating in the audiobook performance than in the book format?

Nothing beats Matt Mercer singing Karma Chameleon. That alone is worth the price of admission in my humble opinion.

  • What do you say to those who view listening to audiobooks as “cheating” or as inferior to “real reading”?

I think the two experiences are distinctly different. As I mentioned, I rarely listen to fiction audiobooks, but when I do it’s usually after I’ve already read the book.

  • How did you celebrate after finishing this novel?

A bottle of expensive bubbly with my family and friends!

Book Review: Fracture (Midnight Ice #3)

 

Fracture TeaserWhen you fall for the devil, you’re bound to get burned.

Pandora Scott’s world has blown up once again, but this time she’s learned her lesson–saving the world isn’t a job she can do solo. She needs friends. But when her strongest ally also happens to be the boy who shattered her heart, it’s not as easy as it sounds. Especially since the person she has to destroy might just be the love of her life. With her fate hanging in the balance, Pandora’s got to make a choice. Forgive? Forget? Fight? Or falter? But everything changes when she realizes that the people she thought were heroes might be villains, and the good guys aren’t always as trustworthy as they seem…

Fracture is the third book in the thrilling Midnight Ice series–the brand new spinoff to Midnight Fire, a bestselling paranormal romance with over 200,000 copies sold and over 5000 5-star reviews on Goodreads!

My Review

Amazing! This is how I would describe the third installment in the Midnight Ice series.  A turn to the story that is almost unbelievable. It is more than I would have ever imagined and expected. We have a more determined Pandora, on the verge of discovering her true identity and how to tap into all her power. I cannot tell you too much, as I would spoiler the previous parts, unfortunately.

But this time she is not alone. If in “Frost” she is on the run, trying to survive, alone and not willing to trust, in “Fracture” Pandora has allies, friends, people she can count on. She cannot finish this without them.  She is stronger and dedicated to her cause. She is spectacular!

“You look like crap.”

Naya didn’t bother to move except to arch a single pointed brow, amber eyes flashing. “Let’s see how you do after a few weeks of torture. I’m happy to start right now.”

In this book we have this struggle, this fight between good and bad, right or wrong, light and dark at its finest. It is incorporated at so many levels. Is Sam trying to clean his soul for Pandora? Are the titans good or bad? Do their actions have good or bad intentions behind or the desire to prove they are these mighty creatures? Is Pandora innocent or guilty? Did she determine Sam going bad? So many questions arise and somewhere in the middle of the book I wanted to find out more. I wanted to go deeper with every page.

Looking back to the other two books, I stopped to wonder if this series has gone a long way, if the characters have matured, if the action is the same of it has evolved. Well definitely yes. Everything is now different, everything is now so much complex. So yes, you will not get tired of the same old Pandora and her doubts.  Kaitlyn Davis is an auto buy author for me, she is fantastic. She has this gift of mixing words with feelings and emotions just to create memorable stories.

Forgiveness is about releasing the pain, releasing the blocks in your own heart, releasing anything and everything that is stopping you from being happy. But forgetting is something else entirely. And, well, whether you do or you don’t, that’s up to you.

An obvious amount of 5 stars and I do recommend the series – In case you haven’t figured that out. Start with book one, which is just 0.99 $ for a limited time only. If there ever was a series I wanted to see as a movie, this would be it! But on second thought, I’m not sure the movie would give justice to the way it’s written. Ok, I’m shutting up now J Happy reading!

P.S.: This quote describes it perfectly:

This isn’t my first time saving the world, and if there’s anything my past experience has taught me, it’s laugh whenever you get the chance. You never know what shit-storm is going to come next.

An Excerpt from the Book

Take an inside look at Diomere’s Exile. Read this sizzling excerpt from the book.
Playing her part, she bit her bottom lip and looked up at him through her lashes. “Pardon, m’lord. I didn’t mean to mistake you for a running path.”
His low, husky voice caressed her ears, its softness belying strength and control rather than weakness. “If all runners were as beautiful as you, I’d be willing to be the path more often.”
She barely kept from rolling her eyes. Expose a little cleavage or the hint of a curvy figure and men were all the same, the sight of a woman’s face being totally unnecessary to judge beauty. Even had she not been wearing the mask, she knew there was nothing beautiful about her. Too tall and mouthy, she preferred dressing like a Diomerean nobleman rather than the noblewoman she was. Never mind the scar that bisected the left side of her face.
“Thank you, m’lord,” she said, tone dry. She smiled and batted her lashes up at him.
His low chuckle sent a shiver down her spine as he leaned toward her until his breath tickled her ear. “Acting the coy miss isn’t one of your gifts,” he said, his lips grazing her ear, causing an arrow of desire to arc through her body.
She leaned up on her toes, their cheeks only a breath apart, and whispered back. “Insincere flattery is obviously one of yours.”
She caressed his chest, unable to resist the swell of muscle under her palms as she pulled away, chin lifted. Striking amber irises circled in a black outer ring and thick black lashes peeked from the eyes of the mask. Her mind went blank as desire rolled through her, taking her breath. A ripple rolled through the power inside her, like this man had reached in and touched a finger to the still surface of her a’mi. Her smile slipped. You’re acting like Father. Her stomach flipped, threatening to eject her morning meal. She jerked her hands from his chest as if she’d been burned.
He trapped her gaze in his. “Is it not said that flattery makes friends and truth makes enemies?”
Nadia scowled and shoved her a’mi deep.
“Then I’d rather be enemies.” She stepped back and held her hand out in the traditional greeting of her people, rather than the shoulder clasping Thunoans used. His smoldering gaze held a challenge as he slid his palm against hers. His thumb caressed the back of her hand, making her shiver, before he finally pulled his hand back toward his chest, the parchment she’d slipped him tucked between his fingers. The greeting ended with their palms over their hearts. Nadia ignored the heat pooling in her stomach. “The gods keep you, m’lord.”
“Asha’s blessing on you, lady.”
She told herself she clenched her fist because the greeting demanded it, not to hold on to the feel of his skin against hers.

In Marilyn Baron’s The Alibi, a cover-up could cost heroine Merritt Saxe her life.

Yet how can she trust Israel with her secret or her heart when she suspects the director has been orchestrating their relationship to keep her in line? Speaking out about the cover-up could cost her more than time in jail…it could cost her life.

My Review

Oh, a mystery that has gripped me from the start. I am not sure why I don’t read much of these stories, but this particular book was all to my liking. I was intrigued from the blurb and so happy to find out it was definitely a time well spent while reading. Meritt Saxe answer her boss’ request to come pick him up and finds herself caught up in a murder that puts her in a very undesirable position. She tells her story about how she had to deal with a secret, all the while trying to find her happiness and regain a balance in life.

 What made me like the book even more was the tone of the narration. Merritt’s voice is like listening to a friend confessing her secret, simple and even regretful at times. The difference between the innocent and young PR specialist and the mature character that relates the events is well defined. We see her struggle to prove herself in a rather aggressive world – working in the prison system is not a difficult job, especially for a woman.

The Romance blends beautifully with the thriller side of the story. I believe the author did a wonderful job combining the two, so that the story never leaves its focus. Merritt and Israel’s relationship is under the same painful secret and she will struggle if she should trust him or not.

All in all, I am really pleased with “The Alibi”. It is a great book for fans of crime and thriller, but as well for romance lovers. This is my first book by Marilyn Baron, but I’ve heard so many great things about her writing and our current story is a proof of that. She is definitely an author worth following. Enjoy !
