Havoc at Prescott High (The Havoc Boys, #1)Havoc at Prescott High by C.M. Stunich
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I feel like all I do is read first instalments of books by CM Stunich and then wait, not so patiently for the next instalment following the inevitable cliff-hanger. My enjoyment of this story may have been affected by this as sequels either come fast and furious or seemingly not at all. Because of this, I felt that I was holding back from becoming too invested in the story and the characters.

There are a number of triggers for those sensitive to abuse, violence, drugs and extreme bullying tactics. Despite my misgivings, I couldn't put the book down. I can understand Bernadette's addiction to Vic, toxic as their relationship was because I was the same with this story, I too had become addicted to something that left me questioning my pleasure of something so altogether disturbing.

Sadly, before I knew it, the dreaded cliff-hanger was sitting right in front of my eyes, and I was cut off from my fix, quite literally. I knew the cliff-hanger was coming but they still get me every time. So, despite finishing the story, I am left gathering my thoughts and recovering my senses, and my sensibilities. Yes, I will read on because duh, that cliff-hanger and I need to see what happened following the party in the cold light of day plus, I need to see if Vic will ever share Bernadette or will his obsession with her become too consuming.

H.A.V.O.C. is right, this story ends with C.H.A.O.S. I just hope we don't have to wait too long to find out what game The Thing is playing now.

Such a gorgeous book. The words and sentiments are inspirational and the hand drawn images and calligraphy are incredibly beautiful. I want to buy this book for everyone I know. It’s a little bit of magic to hold close when the storm clouds come rolling in ❤️

Another amazing story. I loved the dynamic between Wyatt & Melanie and little Hope. There were some tense moments with this story, just to keep my nerves on edge, but it was still a great read. Free to listen via KU.

Tacker (Arizona Vengeance, Book #5)

Sawyer Bennett

Release Date: November 5, 2019




Synopsis:


I am not okay.

Fifteen months ago, my life was turned upside down when the plane I was piloting went down. Injured and trapped in the wreckage, I had to watch my fiancée die a painfully slow death, which is something that can really mess with your head.

Since that day, I’ve had little desire to do much of anything. Except play hockey, that is. Because that is the one place where the bad memories are banished and I can escape my pain.

But off the ice, I’m spiraling out of control. Losing the grip on my life and putting myself and my career in danger. Now, thanks to a string of bad decisions, I’ve been ordered to complete therapy in order to stay on the team.

The problem? Nora Wayne, my beautiful and somewhat unconventional therapist. I can’t buy into the brand of happy clappy crap this woman is feeding me. What could she possibly understand about the type of loss that I’ve suffered? How does she know anything about finding happiness after losing the most important person in your life?

Turns out, I’ve got a lot to learn, and she’s just the person I need to break through those walls I’ve erected.

I am not okay.
But for the first time in a long time, I know that I will be.
