Books From My Kindle Graveyard: Snapped

Hello Everyone,

I decided to start actually reading the books in what I fondly call my “Kindle Graveyard” where I buy loads of freebies and then… never read them. I’m technically cheating as this is a recent purchase not an older one but I really was in the mood for a good thriller. And for those interested it’s still free!

Book Summary:

Murder happens in Houston, but when the most recent murders take on disturbing similarities, local law enforcement officers fear a serial killer is roaming their streets.

Former sheriff’s department sergeant Jade Monroe has just graduated from the FBI’s serial crimes unit in homicide and is called to Houston with her partner, J.T. Harper, to take on her first assignment—apprehending the person responsible for these gruesome crimes.

With victims piling up and the clock ticking, Jade and J.T. need to intensify their search because there’s no sign the killer is slowing down.

After a late-night epiphany while she’s alone, Jade suddenly comes face to face with the killer, and now Jade is missing. The clock continues to tick—but this time it’s for her.

Note: All Jade Monroe books are standalone stories but since characters carry over, they are best read in chronological order.

#1 Maniacal
#2 Captive
#3 Fallacy
#4 Premonition
#5 Exposed

Note: The Jade Monroe FBI Thriller books follow on the heels of the conclusion of Exposed, Book 5 in the Detective Jade Monroe Crime Thriller Series.

Series Two – Agent Jade Monroe FBI Thriller Series
#1 Snapped
#2 Justified

My Thoughts:

As I said in my brief Goodreads Review, I liked it but I had issues with some of it. You really need to suspend belief for some of this, but overall this was enjoyable. It does keep to being a standalone rather well too. Jade was a good, strong character (I liked one scene of how she’s compared to Olivia Benson from Law and Order SUV as she definitely doesn’t seem like her apart from sharing the title of detective.) The other characters were believable, and likable. The plot was strong and had a good flow to it. Overall I enjoyed it but I don’t know when I will continue the series. I’ve barely been in a thriller mood lately and while this was good it didn’t wow me. It showed promise though, and I’ve definitely decided to keep this on my series to watch list.

Kindle Book Review: Abducting Abby

Abducting Abby Cover

Title: Abducting Abby
Author: S. E. Smith?
Series: Book 1
Genre: Science Fiction, Romance
Page Count:  182
Publisher:
Type of Book: Free Kindle Ebook, Amazon Ebook
Year Published: ?
Rated: 4/5 stars

A bit more steamy than what I’m used to, however I thoroughly enjoyed this book regardless. Admittedly, I skimmed through the steamy bits, and the novel read just fine while doing so. I really loved the characters, the setting, and the other-worldliness of the aliens and their mating system. It was a fast paced read, one of which I spent a few hours flying through the pages, taking me only two days to read, having to stop only for real life issues such as dinner and sleep.

I’ve seen this book several times around Amazon and had been hesitant in reading it. I don’t remember why, only that I didn’t want to start another series being one of the major reasons. Well, now I’ve started yet another series regardless, and don’t regret it at all. Abby is a delightful character, kind and generous. She becomes way cooler towards the end of the book as well, though I’m not saying why due to spoilers. It does involve the dragons, however.

There are dragons, symbiotes, bounty hunters, serial killers, intelligent spaceships, and even art is mentioned throughout this book. It’s filled to the brim with action once the story gets going. I can continue listing reasons on why you should get this book, and the number one reason being it’s free on Amazon and other places as well.

Overall, I really liked this quite a lot and am now invested in getting book 2 to read in the near future, once I knock several of my arcs off the ever growing reading pile.

I rate this book four out of five stars, mainly because I wasn’t thrilled with the intimate romance, though a lot of others may like that kind of thing.

Until next time,
