Book Review: Bishop's Endgame (Endgame Trilogy #3) by Katie Reus

Bishop's Endgame (Endgame Trilogy #3)
Title: Bishop's Endgame (Endgame Trilogy #3)

Author: Katie Reus

Stars: 4

Review:
I really wanted to love the story because the last two have been leading up to What happened to Ellis.  I am not sure the beginning was a little annoying because the Ellis isn't the bag guy and he really plays a really bad bad guy to the point it is almost laughable that Arianna didn't try to escape.
The story flows well and readers will love the conclusion to the Endgame Trilogy.  Katie Reus is able to being suspense romance and sexy time into her stories will keeping reader wanting more from the characters they have connected to.

Thank you to KP Publishing for the advance copy of Katie Reus Bishop Endgame

Book Review: Where Demons Hide A.M. Brooks

Where Demons Hide
Title: Where Demons Hide 

Author: A.M. Brooks

Stars: 3 1\2

Review:
I am not a fan with the stories starting off with one night stand sex scenes.  The story seems to revolve around the endless hot and heavy sex scenes. While the story take a back seat.  When the story does comes out I found it interesting.  The female lead is constantly pushing people away and that story is extremely repetitive to the point of eye rolling. The first half of the story is very slow going and sex related.  While some will love the hot and heavy romance side of the story but those looking for a balance will need to find a different author.
Thank you to Netgalley for a copy of A.M Brooks Where Demons Hide.

Synopsis:
The City of Sin holds more than secrets.

He doesn’t remember me.
But, I remember him.
The mysterious and brooding Jay McCall.
His touch. His kiss. His hands on me.
It’s burned into my mind.
The one incredible night we shared.

But, that was before...
Before I lost my brother.
Before grief held me hostage.

He’s back, and it has nothing and everything to do with me.
The secrets he’s keeping are tangled with my brother’s death.
My heart. My body.
At war over a man I barely know.
A man who knows the truth.

He wants me to trust him.
I want to.
But to survive in a place where demons hide,
I must trust no one... not even myself.

Rescuing Autumn: An FBI Romance
Title: Rescuing Autumn: An FBI Romance 

Author:  Allyson Simonian 

Stars: 3

Review:
The story starts off with a very sad woman that author wants readers to get behind.  The story is very disconnected as the story moves forward Camden throw the investigation out the window with very little though of what would happen.  This seems to continue though out the story which make little since that a trained undercover FBI agent risking the undercover operation.  The story ends up falling flat lacks a focus, sections are written and than thrown into the book with little focus causing the stories to fall apart.
