[REVIEW] Pool of Crimson by Suzanne Sabol

This book was given to me for taking part in the blog tour. Thank you!

Pool of Crimson is NO shrinking violet. It starts out in fast paced action scenes and right off the bat hot vampires. I love fast paced books but there is much to be said about setting up the scene first. I found myself confused and unsure about which character was speaking/which character Dahlia was referring to. 

Other than that though, the main character is a strong female. There's hot vampires and the story just sucks you in. 

If you're skeptical about the book I'd suggest giving it a good read. Commit to the first half before making up your mind because you'll be surprised. The lack of details may confuse you but like the beginning the story soon takes off.

LAST Empathy DividerSynopsis
I am a brother I am a police detective I am a contract killer I don’t want to love I don’t want to feel I don’t want … EMPATHY.
They say some people are born with decreased activity in the front central lobe causing them a deficiency in empathy. Maybe that’s true about me but whether I was born this way or created in a moment of evil, empathy was something I didn’t possess until her green eyes met mine in the mirror and I couldn’t take her life. I didn’t want to feel, didn’t want this woman in my life complicating how I lived but she was there at every turn. Sent to haunt me for my sins. Her light so bright she provoked a shadow from everyone she touched. When a job turns bad quickly altering my life forever I’m forced to feel. When nothing is making sense I’m forced to face truths I never would recover from. When life drowns you in its cruelty you don’t know which way the current will drag you or who you’ll become once you re-surface.
I was a daughter I was a student I was a victim Did I have his love? Did I make him feel? Did I have his empathy? When the actions of a soulless killer forces sorrow into my veins I never dreamed the man healing my wounds would be the one to leave the worst scar. His love would scar my soul. Scars are permanent; I will never feel the relief from them. Will I learn to live with them, remember why I have them and learn never to let him close enough to inflict more? Will I eventually cover them… like tattoos coating them with new memories, new love and new starts? I didn’t know these answers because the pain was too suffocating, the only thing I knew was they will always be under the surface lingering. He had scars too, from his sins. There is nothing that can cover them, they were too deep, too ugly, too dark and they marked us both forever.

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters. I wanted to be an actress growing up so I could live many roles but I learned early on that my mind was too active... I would want to change the script.I would watch films and think of ways they could of improved the story if they took another direction so i thought it best that i tell my own. My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light, some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling. When I'm not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I'm a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister. You can find me on facebook where i love interacting with my readers.

The Devil's Dust MC has a list of new threats to the club's lifestyle. Dani, to prove her loyalty, is trying to embrace a part of herself that she never knew existed until now. A sinful beast lurking beneath her surface has been awakened and is ready to eliminate anyone that stands in its way. Looking at her stained hands, she rinses the blood from them. She resigns herself to innocence lost and welcomes her thirst for more blood.

After a breathtaking turn of events, Shadow is looking at life in a different perspective. Not knowing who he can trust or who he can forgive has left him feeling desolate and alone. As Shadow is laying behind his rifle, he wonders if he can pull the trigger to eliminate the threat. He takes a deep breath and squeezes the trigger, the rifle recoil ignites the fuel that drives him.

Retaliations will be required.

Boundaries will be shattered.

Redemption will be lost.

Betrayal so deep, yet they still yearn for one another. Can Shadow overlook Dani’s transgressions? Can Dani overlook the mistrust that Shadow has placed upon her?

[REVIEW] Tiger Lily by Vivian Winslow

Displaying tl cover 1 jpg.jpg
Tiger Lily by Vivian Winslow
Published: July 2014
Age: Adult - 18A
Series: Gilded Flower #3
Copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.  Thank you

Tiger Lily starts off where Calla Lily ends. The Baron family has made a decision and they're following through on it. Lily's relationship with Alejandro is also taking off and for once I'm completely rooting for her. Alejandro seems like a guy who really cares about her. What happened to Todd you may ask? I'm not really sure. Let's add that to the pile of unanswered questions from this story. 

Now an interesting development, Tiger Lily's were mentioned in the book. Is that why the title's called after it? I mean calla lily's were also in 'Calla Lily'. Hmm...coincidence? (I think not) 

This one was probably my favourite of the three. It's on the same track a la 50 shades or other big contemporary romance novels.  It was hard though to feel those friendship bonds that apparently developed throughout the story. You get the dialogue of two people who are speaking as if they're very close friends but emotionally I don't feel it. I just feel like there wasn't enough time to develop these emotions inside me, as a reader, which resulted in not fully being able to enjoy these bonding moments.

Some actions are questionable. I want to know why they insisted Lily keep that Spanish network. Is it a coincidence that's it's Spanish? Is this some foreshadowing I'm missing? Maybe I'm just analyzing this too much and it really doesn't mean anything. 

If I had one suggestion I would say putting the Gilded Flower series together into one novel would make it a lot better. As it stands, they are three short novellas, each telling one part of the story - together and yet disjoint. I found it hard to become fully engrossed in the story. One whole novel would tell the whole story and by adding transitional chapters all three story lines could flow seamlessly.  That's just my opinion.

If you're looking for a quick summer read, give this series a try.
