There’s nothing more fascinating than getting to know another Dark Protector in the outer realm, and if it is one by Rebecca Zanetti, it’s worth the read.

 In total honesty, it has been a while I visited them. It was a great going down memory lane as I met Talen, Zane, Dage, Conn, just to mention a few, as Rebecca Zanetti takes us on an engrossing ride with Vampire-Demon Garrett Kayrs and his Destiny.

Garrett’s Destiny truly is a captivating story of relationships, friendships and the need to create a peaceful world for future generation as Garrett and Destiny try to fight for their own future. With an interesting background for Destiny Applegate, and her appearance in Garrett’s life, and the twisted turn of events that bind Garrett and Destiny, is a great read for any book lover

“If a man could die from regret, then he was living his last moments” ~~Nicholas “Hawke” Hawthorne, Heartless ~~

There is a reason why I love Christy Reece, writer and creator of romantic suspense…author extraordinaire who takes her time to dwell into her characters to appreciate and acknowledge the depth of their personalities, who gets into the mind of evil to understand and recognize the extent of corruptness, and creating motives and situations, thus weaving an engrossing story of good and evil, right and wrong, actions and consequences.

Readers of her Option Zero series have met all her characters in play and each of her characters have an intense and underlying depth to their personalities. Characters who have been to the bowels of the underbelly, witness of sociopaths and power mongrels, politics and destruction. And everyone one of them have their own demons to demolish. Characters that I enjoyed revisiting in Option Zero.

In the midst of deep cover ops and mayhem, Olivia Gates and Nicholas Hawthorne formed an electrifying bond of love and marriage. Where there is good, evil is always lurking in the shadows to strike and create havoc, separating Olivia and Nicholas. And the same twisted evil plays a hand in bringing these lovers face to face, little realizing the full impact of “Zero Options” to survive their eventual solidarity. Evil would see the end of the day! For Olivia and Nicholas, who have given each other so much to remember, it is hard to forget the separation and pain, betrayal and deception, and it’s a long road to trust and forgiveness. Christy Reece gives this very facet of their character, a special attention in the final chapters of their story.

Talking about a Christy Reece book would be like revealing the spoilers of the story. Every word, every line, every situation is such an integral fragment of the plot, that it would be an injustice to her narration, for me to pinpoint anything in particular. Writing about Olivia and Nicholas will be an act of transgression on my end as I can never, ever describe them in a few words. And finally reviewing her work, would be “Heartless”,  of me, as every emotion, every dialogue and every single thought of Olivia and Nicholas has to be imagined in the eye of the mind as their story is been read.

And now a satisfied reader will let Christy Reece go back to her work, and shall wait in anticipation, as Iris Gates went back to work as well!

Readers of Vision Of Justice, have met Detective Gus Lambert’ partner, Kinley Wright and his family of law enforcement brothers. Second in the Vision series by Charlee James,  “Vision Of Power” has FBI agent Easton Adair helping Kinley Wright bring closure to traumatic past that seems to have found Kinley.  

Victim of a violent kidnapping and now a courageous and brave survivor, Kinley has worked her entire life to keep the innocent safe and help put evil behind bars bringing closure to families that have endured pain and loss. She always knew that her past would somehow collide with her present, and having Easton on her side helps her deal with the unknown threat harassing her.

A tech whiz and his position as a FBI agent, gives Easton the added ammunition to protect and help Kinley deal with a killer playing deadlyy games and wanting to finish what started a few years ago. Kinley brings out all his protective instincts and more, and the killer has to go past Easton to get to Kinley. 

In a deadly game of cat and mouse, Easton has everything to lose, and losing Kinley is not an option. Again, Charlee James creates an interesting story of romance and suspense with an engrossing plot and captivating characters

Here’s another new author, Charlee James, (seems to be fairly new), and add to my list of authors to continue to read. She was definitely a surprise read.

Vision Of Justice“, book one of the Vision Series, brings Detective Gus Lambert to Sasha Frost, an artist instrumental in helping rescue a kidnapped teenager. Too close to home, and a series of murders in the aftermath, Gus has a serial murder to catch, who is hell bent to mete out justice of his own. A twisted plot that unravels with each murder, Sasha is caught in the crosshairs of the killer, and if Gus cannot unnravel the twisted mind of the killer, he would be losing the woman he’s fallen for.

Charlee James sure did create an extremely interesting and twisted plot, narrated exceptionally well as well. Both Gus and Sasha are well developed characters, and Vision Of Justice is definitely a story not to be missed.

Fans of Katie Reus need no introduction to her, and romance lovers will love her various series, with not doubt. All books in this series can be read as standalone. Another winner for Katie Reus and this is one series I’ve revisited innumerable times as comfort reading.

This light and quick read from Katie Reus is perfect for the romantic at heart.
