The Gender Secret (The Gender Game, #2) by Bella Forrest



Review

Violet's time in Patrus gets more interesting as her mission nears the end and her relationship with Viggo evolves. Eventually she finds herself in The Green, a toxic environment with mystical beasts that only the well trained venture into.

Bella paints great visuals, so much so that The Green feels like it is a real place, and the creatures that she has created are ones that I can see when I close my eyes. Bella also knows how to create twists and turns that are filled with surprises and keep you on the edge of your chair. Finishing the book leaves me eager to learn more about the Liberators, a rebellious group of members from both Matrus and Patrus, as I have a sneaking suspicion that they are not what they seem.

Rating: 5 out of 5

Synopsis


Gliding over the treacherous Green in a shaky aircraft that she has no idea how to land, Violet Bates is still in shock. The harrowing events of the previous night play over in her mind as she asks herself question after question. 

Why did Lee Desmond Bertrand behave the way he did? 


What is the truth about the mysterious silver egg stowed beneath her seat? 


What happened to Viggo and where is her brother? Is either of them still alive?


When Violet manages to reach the toxic ground alive, she has landed in a world of un
imaginable danger. She has barely time to catch her breath before she is sucked into a perilous journey at breakneck speed - to uncover secrets guarded for centuries and find the only two people that matter.

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…

Nothing to Hide (Lucy Kincaid, #15) by Allison Brennan

Review
I have quite enjoyed books by Allison Brennan. This is my first Lucy Kincaid book. I found it easy to follow along especially given that this is the fifteenth book in the series and not the first one. With that being said, I don't think its necessary to read these books in order.
Allison, as always, does a very great job in providing the back story for her characters especially the victims in this book. She also provides examples of previously cases that Lucy has worked on and how those cases are currently similar to the serial killer case she is currently working on.
Allison also does a good job in providing and describing the setting of the story. You can tell that this story is taking place in Texas, although it does tell you the location. I felt that the character, Jerry Walker, who is the BCSO investigator on case, helps to establish that southern feel in the story. This is done by the way that the character speaks and the way he acts. To be honest, Jerry was my least f…

The Escape Room by Megan Goldin

Review
This is Megan Goldin's debut book and I have to say Wow. It is very well written. It has a ton of twists built into the plot itself. When you finally hit the climax of the book, all you can think is "I didn't see that coming". The characters are well written and it is easy to follow them throughout the story.
I do have to say that when I was first offered a chance to read this book, I was unsure if I wanted too. I am not a big finance person and was concerned that it would be too heavily in finance and hard to understand. However, I did not find this to be the case. Even though the story follows investors and their day to day in their jobs, it is super easy to follow. Megan does not use a ton of finance jargon where you would feel like you would have to look up the word to even know what they were talking about. Even though she does not use a ton finance jargon, she does use some not familiar words where I had to look up what they meant. I am a smart person and…
