All Noelle Cunningham has ever wanted is a life beyond - beyond the walls of Eden, where only the righteous are allowed to remain, and beyond her stiflingly restrictive existence as a councilman's daughter. But only ruins lie outside the City, remnants of a society destroyed by solar storms decades earlier. The sectors surrounding Eden house the corrupt, the criminal-men like Jasper McCray, bootlegger and cage fighter.

I absolutely love this series. It’s a gang yes, but really more of a family that kicks ass together. Men and women have rolls to play in the gang both equally important. This is the first book of the series, but still one of my favorites. I really wish audible would get more than the 5 or 6 they have. I still recommend the series even with the last few missing. It’s a new idea on how the world would look after the end of ours.

Jolene "Jo" Miller has been panting over her crush for years. He's everything she wants: a gentle giant with kick-ass ambition and a rock-hard body that she's dying to ride. The problem is, she's stuck in his friend zone due to one embarrassing reason - she's untouched. Jo's crush has no interest in popping her cherry. She'll need to take some drastic measures to get her crush's attention, and Jo has the perfect candidate to punch her v-card.

The story was cute, but my God, the constant inner monologue! I know we need to know the thoughts of the characters to connect with them, but Jo talked to herself endlessly. I would hit the skip 10 seconds button, nope, still rambling on, skip etc. it’s a cute story, but be ready for some eye rolls and inner thoughts of your own like shut up and say something out loud already! Lol

Sunset Park is gone. People are missing. Sylvie, Eric, and the other survivors have crossed the water to the security of a new Safe Zone, where they hope to heal their battered hearts, amass an armory, and get back at the ones who took it all away. But with zombies on the move and few resources to speak of, it’s harder than expected to plot their revenge. For some, it’s harder still to garner their resolve, since vengeance means more of them will die. But safety is ephemeral in a city where food is short and tensions are high. It seems fate may leave them no choice but to fight.

This last book is by far my FAVORITE of both series. I love the characters in this series as much if not more than the first. I won’t be giving any spoilers in my review. Sarah is able to tie up all the ends in one way or another. Thank you Sarah for creating such a well written group of characters. I only wish it could go on forever.

Delivering a rare book to a valued customer is definitely part of mild-mannered archivist Anna Whitfield's job description. You know what isn't? Protecting her precious cargo from midflight theft by the very pilot who is flying her to Half-Moon Hollow...while trying to appear as unappetizing as possible to the only other passenger, a vampire. Undead bookstore owner Jane Jameson could be waiting a very long time for her book. Possibly forever.

Lewis Black has built a career on giving voice to the anger of Americans. His standup fills theaters across the country and his appearances on The Daily Show draw hoards Online and on TV. But the current political climate is driving Lewis and his long-time comedy partner, Kathleen Madigan, north for an extended tour of Canada.  Lewis and Kathleen Escape to Canada is a stand-up album with way more than just jokes. The Grammy-award winning comedian performs rants sent in from the public, and he and Kathleen respond to them from the stage.

Seriously, WTF?!? It’s 45 minutes of broken drunken audio of them answering audience questions? I love both of these comedians, but it sounds like the drinks got going long before the stand up did. I’m mean that’s a great life, but I don’t record all my drunken nights out and sell it. 🤔 I may have a good idea...., but anyway it’s a NO.

I enjoy both of these authors a lot, so when I found our they were bringing Mike and Jack together I was excited. Jack’s part did kinda drag a little, but not to bad. Mike was great! Sometimes Tufo goes on to many tangents, but this was just story. Great job guys!!

I read tons of apocalyptic books. This had me reaching for my Xanax! It have very few if any slow parts. The writer does a wonderful job of giving gun, prepper, and military information without letting the reader get bored. I learned some great survival information. The “bad guys” stories seem more than plausible. Thanks William!!

Molly always writes such cute and funny books. I always look forward to her new releases. The book is a continuation of the series and keeps all the original characters involved. I always hate when authors steer away from the characters in previous books. I like to know what happens to everyone, not just new characters. Molly really makes the story come alive. You can always close your eyes and picture each person and see the town. She does such a great job with just enough descriptive information to make a picture, but not enough to make you need to skip forward. Lol. Great job, and adorable story Molly!!

I know we go from the birth of the baby straight into her adult story. Why the time jump? I would have loved to see how the parents and the house handled having a baby. It’s kind of sad to me. So many lost stories that could have been told.

When twenty-year-old Kendall Jordan transfers across the country to Garrison University, the last thing she's looking for is a one-night stand. Unfortunately that's exactly what gorgeous Cruise Elton offers. Kendall has long since come to realize that love is an illusion, and Cruise couldn't agree more - but something deep inside her wants him all for herself.

The story is okay, but a little drawn out in parts. Without giving any kind of spoilers the book just stops. It’s like the author had a deadline and just said “well good enough”. I understand it’s a series but it’s not the same couple.
