About Me

What You Need to Know

I have enjoyed  reading books. However, I have always found it difficult to find reviews online that I agree with. This is how 21st Century Reviews was born. 
What to expect from 21st Century Reviews
You can expect honest reviews on books that I have actually read in full. My reviews are not influenced or paid for by others and are truly my own opinion. 
What not to expect
Don't expect a review for every popular book that comes out, as I am only one individual working a full-time job with a family and simply don't have time to read everything. 
My promise
My promise to you is that you will always receive quality, honest reviews from me.  This means that sometimes I will have reviews that may not agree with others. It also means that I will have reviews for books that I liked as well as for those that I did not.

Her Deadly Secrets (Wolfe Security, #2) by Laura Griffin

Review
This is one of the first Wolfe Security books that I have read from Laura Griffin, although not the first book that I have read of Laura Griffin's.
The story is well written and is filled with some very good twists. There is also a great amount of sexual tension written throughout the book, which helps develop the character's stories. Laura does a great job with intertwining each of the main character's stories. Laura does well with providing background information on the characters. It did take me a while to understand why Jeremy was being introduced into Kira Vance's story, however, I am so glad that he became apart of her story. The sexual tension between Kira Vance and Jeremy is almost painfully drawn out and the longer it goes on the more you want them to just hook up.
The other main characters are Logan (Lawyer), Charlotte Spears (Detective), and Ollie (Kira's boss). Much of Ollie's story is given in the past tense. Logan is part of the Logan and Loc…

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…

Something Hidden (Andrew Hunter, #2) by Kerry Wilkinson

Review
This is the first book that I have read by Kerry Wilkinson, so I was unsure what to expect. The story starts out strong and introduces you very quickly to the background story of what will eventually become the primary case that is being investigated by Andrew Hunter. Andrew is hired pro bono by Fiona Methodist to look into her father's case. Her father is deceased, but she refuses to believe that her father was responsible for the death of two young college students who were witness to a jewelry store robbery.
In addition to Fiona Methodists' case, Andrew is also hired to look into the theft of two highly awarded Bengal cats. This case adds a bit of humor to the overall story, as Andrew does not like cats.
The complicated relationship dynamics that Kerry build into the story help to provide some airiness to what other wise is a sad story, when thinking of Fiona Methodist. There is the complicated and yet romantic relationship between Andrew and his ex-wife Keira, who he…
