Friday Mini Reviews #92: J.D. Robb, Michelle Sagara & Sydney Landon

Delusion in Death by J.D. Robb (In Death #35)

borrowed on audio

Synopsis from Goodreads

'What would cause someone to want so many people, surely many of them strangers, to slaughter each other?'

The scene that greets Lieutenant Eve Dallas one terrible evening in New York is more shocking than she has ever witnessed. The downtown bar is strewn with bodies - office workers who have been sliced, bludgeoned or hacked to death with the nearest weapon available, turning on each other in a desperate blinding rage.

As Eve and her husband Roarke - who owns the bar among his many properties - investigate the city, they link the attacks back to the Urban Wars and the chemical warfare used all those years ago. With another slaughter imminent, Eve must turn to unexpected sources to stop a killer pursuing revenge by creating mass carnage . . .

One of the most awesome books in this series, Delusion in Death is about chilling, creepy terrorist attacks, and Eve has to race against the clock and work in cooperation with various government agencies to catch those responsible. A fast, riveting read!

Одна из самых лучших книг в этой серии, Обман в Смерти рассказывает о серии жутких и кровавых террористических актов,  и Ив приходиться работать на перегонки со временем и в сотрудничестве с государственными службами, чтобы поймать ответственных за терракт людей. Читается быстро, невозможно оторваться.

Cast in Chaos by Michelle Sagara (Chronicles of Elantra #6)


Synopsis from Goodreads
Kaylin Neya is a Hawk, part of the elite force tasked with keeping the City of Elantra safe. Her past is dark, her magic uncontrolled and her allies unpredictable. And nothing has prepared her for what is coming, when the charlatans on Elani Street suddenly grow powerful, the Oracles are thrown into an uproar and the skies rain blood.

The powerful of Elantra believe that the mysterious markings on Kaylin's skin hold the answer, and they are not averse to using her - however they have to - in order to discover what it is.

Something is coming, breaking through the barriers between the worlds. But is it a threat that Kaylin needs to defend her city against - or has she been chosen for another reason entirely?

Wooo, a kiss from Nightshade! *grins* Overall, an overwhelming plot, a cool painting in Oracles' Hall, plus pretty boring discussions with the Devourer. This book lost me a bit, but it wasn't that bad.

Ооо, поцелуй от Найтшейда! *смеясь* В общем, очень сложный сюжет, в котором я немного заблудилась, плюс классная картина в Холле Ораклов и скучные разговоры с Пожирателем. Нормально, но не лучшая книга серии.

 Pierced by Sydney Landon (Lucian & Lia #1)

kindle freebie
18+ only

Synopsis from Goodreads
My name is Lucian Quinn and I own one of the most successful software companies in the world. I’m twenty-nine, rich and single. Impressive right? I’m also a favorite target for every hungry socialite looking to land the uncatchable catch. Maybe it sounds vain, but the fact that I’m a God between the sheets doesn’t hurt my stock any. What these women don’t know though is that I’m completely screwed up and damaged beyond repair by my past. The only part of me I’ll ever willingly give them is the hour it takes to make them scream…several times.

Then I saw her…

I’m Lia Adams and I’m in my last year at St. Claire’s University in North Carolina. I grew up with an abusive mother, and a twisted stepfather who was worse…so much worse. I’m so close to escaping from my past and making my dreams come true. I’ll do anything necessary to survive, even work as an escort to help pay for my college expenses. The men that I accompany to various events as an escort for Date Night are mostly harmless and just want an attractive woman on their arm for an evening. It has never gone further than that…until him…

“I want you to call into work tomorrow and quit your job. I don’t think you need to bother with notice; it’s not likely you will ever use them for a future job reference.”
I nod my head in agreement, fighting the sleep threatening to claim me when his words finally hit me. What the h***? “Wh—What did you say?” Had I imagined the whole thing?
Without looking at me, he repeats his demand. I shake my head, completely confused. “What are you talking about? Why would I quit my job? Oh, no,” I gasp in horror, “are you trying to get me fired because of tonight? It was just cold medicine!”
His eyes are glittering in the darkness. “Baby, if I wanted to have you fired, I would. I want to f*** you, but not when you’re being paid to be my date.”

Circumstances bring two people that should have never crossed paths together and in the days and weeks ahead, they grow close quickly, each seeing a kindred soul in the other. As ghosts from their past rise to haunt them, they cling to each other as their lives start to spiral out of control. Soon, they realize that they’re both damaged possibly beyond repair. Will their love be what saves or destroys them?

This book is meant for mature readers who are 18+. It contains explicit language, and graphic sexual content.

Okay, it's a classic damsel-in-distress meets knight in shining armor story.  Only the knight is a bit of an overbearing prick like Jonathan Grey, and the damsel has a pretty screwed up stepdad who is magically above the law. It was okay, but I don't think I'll enjoy reading the rest in series.
* * *
В общем, классическая история Золушки, только принц здесь с очень нездоровым поведением аля Джонатан Грей. Очень не понравилось, что приёмный отец Золушки почему-то оказался неприкасаем законом несмотря на его преступления. Короче, читать продолжение не буду. Не моё это.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
