The Arrangement by Robyn Harding

yes

Natalie, a young art student in New York City, is struggling to pay her bills when a friend makes a suggestion: Why not go online and find a sugar daddy—a wealthy, older man who will pay her for dates and even give her a monthly allowance? Lots of girls do it, Nat learns. All that’s required is to look pretty and hang on his every word. Sexual favors are optional.
Though more than thirty years her senior, Gabe, a handsome corporate finance attorney, seems like the perfect candidate, and within a month, they are madly in love. At least, Nat is…Gabe already has a family, whom he has no intention of leaving.
So when he abruptly ends things, Nat can’t let go. But Gabe’s not about to let his sugar baby destroy his perfect life. What was supposed to be a mutually beneficial arrangement devolves into a nightmare of deception, obsession, and, when a body is found near Gabe’s posh Upper East Side apartment, murder. - simonandschuster.net
The Arrangement is a terrific thriller. Early on, you’re not even sure who the murder victim is so it’s at first a “whoisit” before it becomes a “whodunnit.” 

While I’d have made different choices, it’s  easy to sympathize with Nat and understand why she chooses to become a sugar baby and fall for Gabe’s perceived charms. I hated that her catty roommates were so judgy of “the Arrangement,” why do they care so much about what two consenting adults do with their time. 🤷🏻‍♀️ The novel is told from both Gabe and Nat’s POV so the reader can see Gabe’s narcissistic dark side contrasted by Nat’s young naive side.  Definitely check out The Arrangement by Robyn Harding. Visit your favorite book store today or click the publishers link in the synopsis for purchasing info. 

🌟🌟🌟🌟/5


Gabe’s drink of choice is a Rusty Nail which Natalie finds vile but drinks anyway to appear sophisticated and desirable to him.  I had to see for myself if it truly was as vile as Nat described. My boyfriend was game to try it to so we made a visit to the liquor store and I made cocktails. We really don’t know what Nat was talking about as we found them delightful. Those 21 years and older, google the recipe and let me know what you think.

T-Minus by Shannon Greenland


Today we’re proud to be a part of the Blog Tour for T-Minus by Shannon Greenland as sponsored by XPRESSO Tours. 


A terror with no answer needs a girl with no limits.
I am the daughter of the first female POTUS, and today is about to become the longest day of my life…
24 hours—that’s how much time I have to save my mother before terrorists assassinate her. But now my father and brother are missing, too. This goes deeper than anyone thinks. Only someone on the inside would know how to pull this off—how to make the entire First Family disappear.
I can’t trust anyone, so it’s up to me to uncover the conspiracy and stop these madmen. Because little do they know, they picked the wrong person to terrorize.
My name is Sophie Washington, and I will not be a victim. No one, I repeat no one, is taking me or my family down. But the clock is ticking…
I am a huge fan of the Jack Reacher novels by Lee Child. Sophie reminded me of a young Reacher in her renegade efforts to protect her family at all costs. While this novel is YA, it doesn’t hold back in its delivery of action packed thrills. Sophie takes a lot of risks (including a couple of foolish choices) but what teenager doesn’t? Definitely check out T-Minus by Shannon Greenland and meet Sophie Washington - one of the strongest YA heroines I’ve seen! 🌟🌟🌟.5/5

Clear Confusion by Kathy M. Howard

 

Today we’re proud to be part of the Blog Tour for Clear Confusion by Kathy M. Howard hosted by JustRead PublicityTours.



Book Blurb:What am I going to do, God? Who am I? Charlotte Hallaway needs to come to terms with her father's death. He had been her only family, and she wasn't handling her grief well. It was just supposed to be a few weeks of peace and quiet to process it all, but then she saw them-a drug deal and a murder within seconds of each other. And they saw her. Now running for her life, Charlotte boards a bus to escape her pursuers and wakes up the next morning in the woods of Jennings, Georgia, without a memory of how she got there or of who she is. All she knows is an underlying fear she can't seem to shake. When two hunters find her battered and scared, can she put aside the clear confusion she's experiencing to trust them? She wants to trust them, especially Nicholas, but fear is holding her back. Trust is incredibly hard when one is so clearly confused. Could it be he and his friend are not who they claim to be? Who are they really . . . and who is she?

Review:

I was expecting more of a thriller instead of a romance but that’s not a bad thing.  The burgeoning romance relationship between Charlotte and Nicholas is the true heart of this story.  It read like a movie you might see on the Hallmark Channel. Charlotte, Nicholas and Nicholas’ sister Nellie are very passionate about their Christian faith and their love for the Lord guides their choices as Charlotte tries to regain her memory.  Nellie is actually my favorite character in the story. I hope Ms. Howard considers a follow-up featuring her as I’d love to see what comes next for her. If you love romantic suspense stories that steer away from gore and chaste romance with a huge dash of faith then Clear Confusion by Kathy M. Howard is the book for you!

I think we can all relate to losing a book in bed or even worse when you fall asleep reading and get smacked in the face with a book. 😂
