Review: Joe's Odyssey

Joe's Odyssey Joe's Odyssey by Nick LaTorre
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

More like 3.5

I Stop correcting "received" a copy of the book from the author in exchange for an honest review

I was super excited to read this book. Stealing from a mob boss can never be good and of course makes for a great story.

Joe lives a boring life with a boring job and he is tired of it. When asked to go met a new client at a marina he tells his boss no. Of course he bows down and goes. Joe is shocked to find out that this new client is a mob boss on a huge boat with suit cases full of cash...

So what does one do in this situation. Push the boss off the boat and steal his money and boat right?!

This is where I thought the book was going to get really good. Sadly Joe goes to different places on the boat with a group of delinquent kids where they do a bunch of drugs and have sex with women. this is repeated over and over through out the book. I almost Did not finish but was to invested and wanted to know what was going to happen. I was looking for more excitement, or something really thrilling..... you stole a mobsters boat and cash....like something really exciting was bound to happen right?!

Even though the book was boring, it was VERY funny and had enough twist that i wanted to know how the book ended and just couldn't give up on it.

Solid 3.5 for pure entertainment value!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review

Alissa's last girlfriend was found dead after she ran away due to bullying caused by her rejection and refusal to come out. She let her popular friends bully her and allowed the whole school to play along. Now, her current girlfriend, who she came out for, is also missing, but the police refuse to think the cases are related. Alissa tries to piece together the events leading to Lana's disappearance and murder in the hopes of recovering some clues towards Hannah. All she has are mysterious note being left for her.

She recruits and old friend, nick, to help her solve the clues and find Hannah.

Allissa's mom is not ok with her being gay and constantly pushes nick on to her. It doesn't help that nick is in love with her and throughout the books makes certain situations uncomfortable.

Even through I had the book figured out early on, there was still enough plot twists that kept me re thinking inward right.

A surprise ending and overall a very great book!

book blitz- unusual equations by anupriya


Read on Kindle Unlimited


About the Book:
Viraj is struggling to concentrate at work because he has a wife to worry about. But he is more apprehensive because he knows that she is currently parked at the apartment of his arch nemesis.

Madhuri fought with her husband last night and in her rage left the house. She knows there is one place in the world where she is always welcome. She only hopes that she is not crossing any lines.

Aman has for long given up hope. Yet he can’t help but get a kick out of the circumstances that have brought her to his place. Is this is chance finally to bring her back to him?

Lives of three people entwined by love, passion, urge and devotion. Will they survive these unusual equations? Or will it destroy their happiness forever?




Buy from Amazon

Read an Excerpt:

Anyone who had seen them together thought that Viraj was one doting husband. Madhuri didn't consider it to be a big deal.
“I left my family for him, after all.”  she felt entitled in lieu of the sacrifice she had made to be with him.
“You gotta be easy on him, Madhuri. The reason he can’t stop looking at you like a love-struck puppy even today is not just that you left your family to be with him. It’s his innate need to love and cherish you,” mentioned one of her free-lancer friends last night. Madhuri couldn't care less.
Even Aman is so loving and caring towards me.
Madhuri sat upright, jolted. Her thoughts shifted towards her relationship with Aman.
Friendship, Mads, it’s friendship with Aman.
What Madhuri shared with Aman was inexplicable. To call it a childhood friendship or companionship would be marring the beauty of it all.
Growing up in an extremely patriarchal household, where her brother was almost worshipped, Aman made her feel like she was the centre of his universe. He was the only person in her life who never wanted to change a thing about her.  He counseled her, helped her, and when she got herself into any madness, he just stood along and ensured that he was there to pick her up if she fell.
In fact, it was Madhuri’s affinity towards getting into all kinds of weird situations while dealing with people that Aman had christened her - Mads.
A much suppressed spirit as a child, Madhuri turned out to be rebellious and aloof as a teenager and a young adult. A part of the reason was also the awareness that she just had to turn and Aman would definitely be somewhere around the corner. He was always close by to help her with academics and extracurricular activities. Whenever she reported sick and missed school, Aman didn’t hesitate to go the extra mile and do double the work by copying all her class-work and assignments in her notebooks for her.
Madhuri never worried about even a dime in her life because she knew that Aman was there to root for her. Always.
Well, not always.

Review: Blissfully Blended Bullshit: The Uncomfortable Truth of Blending Families

Blissfully Blended Bullshit: The Uncomfortable Truth of Blending Families Blissfully Blended Bullshit: The Uncomfortable Truth of Blending Families by Rebecca Eckler
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review

This... this is the book every person needs to read! Ms. Eckler tells her story about dating after divorce and what it was like blending their families together.

She touches all the issues from step parents, to ex's, to pregnancy, dating. etc. She keeps it real and lets it all out on the table.

I could relate to this story so much and it was nice to read about somebody else going through the same thing.

A laugh out loud story. If you can relate you sure will enjoy!
