The Gender Lie (The Gender Game, #3) by Bella Forrest



Review

Violet's journey continues as she tries to save both her brother, Tim, and the Patrus Warden, Viggo, who she has developed feelings for while trying to survive in The Green. Violet is faced with the tough decision of whether she should trust the leader of the Liberators, Desmond, and join them, or if she should continue her fight with the queen of Matrus on her own. This is a tough decision for Violet as Viggo is seriously injured and she has discovered the lost boys of Matrus that were supposed to be in the Mines.

Bella Forrest continues to do a great job evolving, introducing, and describing the characters and their backstories. For example, she has continued to provide us with more information on the Liberators and some of the individuals that make up the group. Bella Forrest continues to evolve Violet and Viggo's relationship; one that any reader can find relatable because they struggle with real-life issues.

Rating: 3 out of 5

Synopsis

"I'd want you to help me win a war..."


After discovering the shocking secret buried deep within The Green, Violet has a grave decision to make.
Trust the woman who saved her, or not?

So far, everything about the woman has taken Violet by surprise. Her behavior has been honest and upfront - a refreshing change for Violet. Besides, with one of her loved ones hanging on life support, and the other close to falling completely out of reach, Violet doesn't exactly have a lot of choice.  

Her only way forward is to embark on a dicey excursion. For this, she knows she needs the Liberators' help - and must be prepared to take whatever risks that comes with. 

But what neither she, nor any of her new Liberator comrades can prepare for, is just how deep the lies of their homelands run...

Caged (Agent Sayer Altair, #1) by Ellison Cooper

Review
The same two cops are called to the same location that they had previously been called to and had found nothing suspicious outside so they dismissed it. Now they are wondering if they had missed something. Could it be that something was wrong the first time? A caged girl is found in the home, which is booby trapped. Cops and FBI agents are killed and injured. Is this the work of a serial killer? Is there a connection to the Mayan myth of the hero twins? Could there possibly be a mole in the FBI or even worse?

This the first book in the Agent Sayer Altair series, which currently consists of two books. 
One of the things that I really struggled with was the use of animals in the books. I am a huge animal lover and even though their is no direct cruelty to the animals there is indirect and it was very hard for me to read about. 

The plot is easy to follow and it is filled with lots of twists and turns. I found it quite hard to figure out who the serial killer was and when it was fina…

Keep Her Close by M.J. Ford

Review
This is the first book that I have read by MJ Ford. I found it to took a little bit of time for it to draw me into the story, but once I was drawn in, I was hooked. The slow start is why I am not giving it a four out of five stars. I will be looking into more books by MJ. Ford.

Closer Than You Think by Darren O'Sullivan

Review
The book starts with a prologue that draws the reader in and creates a fair amount of suspense as it is from the perspective of the Blackout Killer. The prologue describes the Blackout Killer, his thoughts, and one of his murders. The book then goes to start with Chapter one. The move from the prologue to the first chapter is a confusing one. There is no identification that the perspective is changing from that of the Blackout Killers to that of Claire Moore, his one and only survivor. The change between the Blackout Killers perspective and Claire Moore's is one that continues throughout the story. The chapters all identify the current date and location, but do not identify whose perspective that chapter is based off.
Once you read the prologue and move into the first few chapters of the book, it is somewhat disappointing. The prologue was filled with suspense and was fast paced, however, most of the book afterwards is slow moving and really hard to get into. The relationshi…
