HERE IT IS! Shattered Duet Book 2… ACCEPTED & REBUILT. By Author Bry Ann Release date: November 23, 2018

Accepted & Rebuilt (finally) tells Nix’s side of the story! I’d do a Roses & Thorns Nix edition touch-up. This story is suspenseful, sexy and heartful. It’s different than the first one in many ways as Nix and Sage are much older now… The blurb, pre-order link, release date and cover are below!




Five years. You’d expect so much to have changed, right?

Ride or die. I said those words.

Easy words to speak.
Hard words to live by.

Hard when the man you love, your hero, the man you see through rose-colored glasses, has a father who is a serial killer.
Hard when you feel the man you love slowly drift away from you.

Life comes to a halt. It becomes all about survival.

I’ve done that dance.
Survive. Never thrive. I’m okay with that.

Nix isn’t. Not at all.

He has a plan.

A terribly destructive plan that can and does reek havoc on all of us.
He doesn’t know I have a plan too. To prove to him I can handle anything and everything he dishes out. I want to handle it.

Because when you love someone, you’re their teammate.

You build them up.

You accept them.

More than anything, you love them.
And I love him.

I just hope it doesn’t kill us.

My Review:

I really like the Genoa Mafia Series. The characters are all likable and bad ass. Especially Dominic. A man of little words, but with a large presence.

Dominic is a man that scares people just by being in a room with them. He doesn’t have to say anything and people will avoid having to speak to him because of his large presence. He is the cleaner for the Genoa Mafia and will do anything for Roman, Maddy, and Valentina. Now he wanted to add Stephanie to that group, but can he put himself out there and risk his heart again?

Stephanie is a woman who is in hiding and has a secret, actually, more than one now. She shares one with Dominic. He seems to always be there when she needs him and she isn’t sure if that’s a good thing or not. How can she trust her judgement now after all that has happened to her? After the reason she ran and is in hiding?

I really liked this story and Dominic is one hot mafia cleaner. He’s broody, quiet, strong, and loyal to those who have shown him loyalty and family. I give this story a 4.5 star review and hope there are more stories in this series to read. The men in this series are seriously hot.

Review of: Cheat, by Mayra Statham @givemebooksblog @mystathamwrites

Garrett Wright’s life after the bombing that took his friends and team members in the army is tough and his way of dealing with his anger and survivors guilt will lead him to a woman who will bring him out of the darkness.

Stefanie Banks, a woman who’s had a rough start to life has decided to live her life and put things from her past behind her. She doesn’t let anyone in though. Her armor is tight and in place, but the man that is being beaten up and just taking it is a man that she is drawn to. They will both find that they can’t put the other out of their minds.

The subject matter of Garrett’s life after the army is a tough subject matter, and not everyone who has had to battle it have survived, but Garrett was one of the lucky ones and his family and friends are thankful for that. Stefanie will help Garrett come back from the darkness.

I really liked this story and thought it was written very well. It has the good and the bad in life. Garrett is a strong man and has so much good in him, it’s great to see the side of him that his Nicola remembers come back out after meeting Stefanie. I look forward to reading Danny’s story next and love the Wright boys. I give this story a 4.5 star review.

Review of Written in Blood, by Stephen Puleston @books_n_all #Policeprocedural

DC Ian Drake is man who when working on a case will look at all angles to figure out who the murderer is. He has some odd habits, but they help him work things out in his head and keep things straight for him.

Drake’s team is called in when a well known barrister, Nicholas Wixley, is killed and the crime scene resembles a crime scene of a case that the he tried years prior. There are a lot of details to this case and Drake and his team will work hard to make sure that they have the correct person behind bars for the crime. The people involved in this case are all well known public figures and Drake and his team must tread carefully when questioning the suspects.

I liked this book and Drake’s team, they may seem like a misfit bunch, but they work well together and they work hard to find the killer. There is more than one murder and all of the victims are connected. If you are a fan of police procedural and suspense, I would highly recommend this book. The characters are likable and well written. I give this book a 4 star review. This was the first book in the DC Drake series, but it worked well as a stand alone story.

Written in Blood

Inspector Drake Mystery #6

A savage murder…

Inspector Drake is called the holiday home of an eminent Manchester barrister and recently appointed judge to face the grizzly sight of his badly mutilated body. The scene resembles a copycat killing from years previously when the barrister had prosecuted the perpetrator now serving life in prison.

A serial killer behind bars…

Drake realises the killer might be targeting the judge or legal teams or journalist that covered the original trial and he embarks on a frantic search to identify and warn them all. But when a friend of the barrister is found murdered in his yacht in a marina Drake’s suspicion must focus on the connection the barrister.

A determined murderer.

Clear evidence arises to arrest and charge a suspect is thrown into confusion when another death takes place. Drake knows he has a determined killer to catch. And with his own reputation and the integrity of the Wales Police Service on the line he cannot afford mistakes.


Author photo jpgAuthor Biography

I write crime fiction based in Wales and about Wales. The rural landscape of north Wales provides the backdrop to the Inspector Drake novels. And Cardiff the capital of Wales provides the setting for the Inspector Marco novels set in a modern urban environment.
I love the novels of Raymond Chandler, Ian Rankin, Mark Billingham, Henning Mankell, Val McDermid – the list could go on! And I enjoy watching detective series on the television the recent Hinterland series based near Aberystwyth in Wales was great. One of my favourites is the French series Spiral but The Bridge and Broadchurch and the Rebus series with Ken Stott and Kenneth Branagh in Wallander are great too.

I have been on writing courses at the Welsh Writers Centre in Llanystymdwy, North Wales tutored by Matt Whyman and Marcus Sedgwick as well as crime writing courses with Peter Robinson and Andrew Taylor at the Scottish Writers centre.

I was born in Anglesey an island off the north Wales coast and after leaving school in Holyhead I went to University in London before training as a solicitor/lawyer. I practised in a small family business doing criminal work in the magistrates and crown courts, divorce and family work.
I still live on Anglesey, North Wales near the beach and the mountains of Snowdonia.

Troubled teenager girl behind bars
Excerpt #1:



It’s finally time.
I grab one of the dull pencils from the tray and a piece of paper from the stack and place it down in front of me. Biting my lip, I stare wistfully at the sheet, wondering what I should write. If I should even write anything.
There are so many things I want to say, so much I have to explain, but none of the words in my head will suffice. She’ll never understand. She’s too innocent to know the truth.
So I opt for something else instead. Something familiar and loving, so she’ll know how much I care.
“Are you gonna start or what?” the woman across the shoddy table says while glaring at me.
I look up from my paper and gaze blankly ahead. “As soon as I know what to write.”
“You don’t get much time, y’know,” she adds, shrugging. “Suit yourself.”
I nod a few times. Advice is best not taken for granted, so I pick up the pencil and rub my lips together.

Dear Daisy,

You’ll probably never read this letter, but I want you to know that at least I tried. I’ve told your auntie Dana to hold onto the letters I send her until I get the chance to hand them to you myself. As much as I want to, I can’t be with you right now. But I promise it won’t be long. I’ll be with you again soon. Before you even know it.
I know you’ll be good. I know you’ll do great out there in the world.
And you know … I will find you again.


Smiling, I read over the words again before my letter and those of all the other women next to me are taken by the guard as she passes us.
They’ll read the contents and decide whether it’s suitable to send.
This is how it always goes … here in prison.
There’s no choice to make, no autonomy whatsoever. Nothing but sleep, eat, work, and wait.
Wait until your time is up.
Until you can see your baby again.
But I knew the consequence when I did what I did. That I’d end up sacrificing precious time I could’ve spent with her. But it was the only choice I could make, and I’d do it again in a heartbeat if I had to.
It’s no one’s fault. Not mine or his.
Circumstances brought me here, and I accept that wholeheartedly.
Love … is what brought me here.
I made the ultimate sacrifice for my little girl.
For a man I couldn’t stop loving even when that same love ripped her away from me.
For both … I’d willingly hang.

Fan Club:


A story that makes a parent stop and think, and a story of love for a child above all else. This story made me stop and think as well and agree that I would probably make the same choices that Hanson and Lillian made in order to have more time with my child. The way that this story is written, it goes back and forth between present and previous events. It keeps you wondering what the reason is for Lillian’s feelings towards Hanson. There is love, confusion, and commitment in this story that are so real and raw. The love a parent has for their child should be this way, and the lengths that a parent goes through to protect and keep their child safe should be just the way that Lillian and Hanson are with Daisy.

This was a short read, but a heartfelt read. I liked the story and give it a 3.5 star review. I look forward to reading more of the the stories in the Cards of Love Anthology.
