Slammed by Victoria Denault

Title: Slammed 
Series: San Francisco Thunder #2
Author: Victoria Denault
Publisher: Forever
Release Date: December 5, 2017

Not every goalie plays it safe... 

As a publicist for the San Francisco Thunder hockey team, Dixie Braddock is too busy rescuing the players from trouble to get into any of her own. Except, of course, when it comes to the super hot new goalie. Because when a guy's kiss curls your toes and sets your heart on fire, how the hell do you just walk away? But if anyone ever catches them together, she'll lose her job faster than any slapshot.

Eli Casco is on the brink of having everything he ever wanted. He's finally been called up from the minor leagues to play on a championship team. And he just had the most mind-blowing night with the woman of his dreams. But now that he's an official Thunder player, Dixie is determined to keep her distance. None of the fame and fortune means anything to him without her to share it. If he truly wants Dixie in his life, it's time to throw down his gloves and put everything on the line.

“Do you mind if I follow you home tonight?" I ask her with a serious stare. "Because my mother always told me to follow my dreams.” 

Slammed was my first book by Victoria Denault.

Slammed had all the great ingredients. It had sass, amazing banter, goofy lines and a whole lot of romance. Just perfect!

Slammed's prologue let us see the first meeting between the main characters. Dixie Braddock is running late for her first day at her new job as PR for the San Francisco Thunder when she meets Eli. They shared a passionate kiss before both learn who the other one is. Fast forward a year later, and now Dixie and Eli are about to see each other again.

Dixie Braddock is loving her job. She's a workaholic but she also spends plenty of time with her family. She's Jude Braddock's sister who plays for the Thunder. Yet, Dixie wants her relationship with Jude to be under wraps. She doesn't want people thinking she got the job because of who her sibling is. She has worked hard to be where she's at and nothing will interfere with her destiny except a certain goalie she can't seem to forget.

Elijah "Eli" Casco is currently part of the hockey minor league for the Thunder. His brother Levi is the captain of the Thunder. They have a great relationship although neither gets along very well with their parents. Eli left college to follow his dream but an injury in the rink almost took his life. He's still dealing with its repercussions when he meets Dixie. He wants to prove that he can move to the NHL as their goalie but even he has doubts about his own capacity. 

It was so easy to love Slammed. Both main characters were delightful. Their banter and skype conversations were all entertaining. I laughed and grinned through the book many times. 

I also need to mention how much I enjoyed Dixie's family. Her sisters are a hoot and her relationship with Jude was a strong one too. The Braddock siblings' love for their parents was perfectly clear for everyone to see.  Same with Eli and Levi. They had a great relationship too. 

Even though I didn't read Score, I think you can read Slammed as a standalone. Saying that I need to go back and read it. Jude and Zoey's story has to be an interesting one.

Kisscut by Karin Slaughter

Title: Kisscut
Series: Grant County #2
Author: Karin Slaughter
Publisher: Harper
Release Date: September 30, 2003

Saturday night dates at the skating rink have been a tradition in the small southern town of Heartsdale for as long as anyone can remember, but when a teenage quarrel explodes into a deadly shoot-out, Sara Linton--the town's pediatrician and medical examiner--finds herself entangled in a terrible tragedy.

What seemed at first to be a horrific but individual catastrophe proves to have wider implications. The autopsy reveals evidence of long-term abuse, of ritualistic self -mutilation, but when Sara and police chief Jeffrey Tolliver start to investigate, they are frustrated at every turn.

The children surrounding the victim close ranks. The families turn their backs. Then a young girl is abducted, and it becomes clear that the first death is linked to an even more brutal crime, one far more shocking than anyone could have imagined. Meanwhile, detective Lena Adams, still recovering from her sister's death and her own brutal attack, finds herself drawn to a young man who might hold the answers. But unless Lena, Sara, and Jeffrey can uncover the deadly secrets the children hide, it's going to happen again . . .

This is the second book in the Grant County series.

When the book begins Jenny Weaver, a high school student is pointing a gun at another teenager, Mark Patterson and both Sara and Jeffrey are witnesses to this horrible site. 

Let me back up a little...

Sara Linton is with her sister Tessa at the skating rink. She's waiting on Jeffrey, her ex-husband (whom she has feelings for) to meet them there when she makes a gruesome discovery in the restroom. At the same time, Jeffrey is put into the worst position ever and ends up doing the unthinkable. 

Not too long after, Sara who besides being a pediatrician is also the town's coroner makes a revolting finding. Jenny's autopsy reveals years of abuse, female genital mutilation and self-harming. This is where the story becomes impossible to leave.  Sara, Lena and, Jeffrey will stop at nothing to find the truth. 

What made Jenny point a gun at Mark? Who abused Jenny? What is really going on between this group of teenagers?

Karin Slaughter doesn't sugar coat depravity. There were scenes which dealt with different types of abuse, self-harm, suicide, and murder. Just like Blindsighted, Kisscut reveals to us some of the worst things humankind can offer. 

The writing and the plot kept my attention one-hundred percent. No question about it. Yet, I didn't like Kisscut as much as I liked Blindsighted

Some of my issues with the book had to do with two of the characters:

I still don't get Sara and Jeffrey together. There was a scene where he was just plain mean. Here are some of the things he was thinking about Sara:

a couple of snapshots of Sara he had taken on their honeymoon. He had put these up recently, when they started dating again. Now, he wasn’t so sure about wanting the pictures in his office, let alone wanting Sara in his life..”
Like he didn’t know how to do what he was doing. Like he hadn’t done it hundreds of times before with other women who were a hell of a lot more receptive than Sara had been..”
Her hair was a mess and Jeffrey wondered if she had even bothered to comb it. Sara had never been the kind of woman who was interested in high fashion and she seldom wore makeup. Sometimes this was sexy, sometimes it made her look sloppy, like she was more interested in being a doctor than being a woman. As she got closer to them, he could see that her glasses were crooked on her face. For some reason, this irritated him more than anything else..”
Just what you want your significant other to think about you, right? NOT!

Then, there was Lena. How did she get away with continuing with her job as a cop without having a psych clearance? I understand is a small town but the woman was kidnapped and raped!! Everyone knew she was a loose cannon and she was about to explode. Her anger issues were only getting worse and her reaction to Mark was a bad one too:

he tucked his hair behind his ears with his fingers. She could not help but think there was something erotic in the gesture. There was also something about the way he walked and held his shoulders that gave him a certain sensuality. His faded jeans rested a little below his thin hips, and the tight white T-shirt he wore rode up a little, showing off the definition in his abs..”

Thankfully, Hank was there for a very traumatized Lena. Most of the time I was either sorry or irritated by her and I still don't like her animosity towards Sara. 

On the other hand, Sara was doing her best. She was trying to help. She felt guilty about not realizing it sooner what was happening to Jenny. She was also supportive of Jeffrey despite his attitude. 

Despite my issues with the characters, I won't stop this series. I want to know what happens next.

Memory Man by David Baldacci

Title: Memory Man 
Series: Amos Decker #1
Author: David Baldacci
Publisher: Grand Central Publishing
Release Date: April 21,  2015

Amos Decker's life changed forever--twice.

The first time was on the gridiron. A big, towering athlete, he was the only person from his hometown of Burlington ever to go pro. But his career ended before it had a chance to begin. On his very first play, a violent helmet-to-helmet collision knocked him off the field for good, and left him with an improbable side effect--he can never forget anything.

The second time was at home nearly two decades later. Now a police detective, Decker returned from a stakeout one evening and entered a nightmare--his wife, young daughter, and brother-in-law had been murdered.

His family destroyed, their killer's identity as mysterious as the motive behind the crime, and unable to forget a single detail from that horrible night, Decker finds his world collapsing around him. He leaves the police force, loses his home, and winds up on the street, taking piecemeal jobs as a private investigator when he can.

But over a year later, a man turns himself in to the police and confesses to the murders. At the same time a horrific event nearly brings Burlington to its knees, and Decker is called back in to help with this investigation. Decker also seizes his chance to learn what really happened to his family that night. To uncover the stunning truth, he must use his remarkable gifts and confront the burdens that go along with them. He must endure the memories he would much rather forget. And he may have to make the ultimate sacrifice.

Memory Man will stay with you long after the turn of the final page.

Memory Man is my first book by David Baldacci.

Memory Man had a great premise. A man who can't forget anything and now has to capture a very deadly man before he kills again.

Amos Decker's life has been changed twice. The first big change in his life happened during his first game as a pro football player. He was hit hard enough that he died and was brought back a few times. His head injury caused him to develop hyperthymesia and synesthesia. He has become an acquired savant. He can't forget anything. After recuperating in a hospital, doing rehab and attending a center with people like him, he decides to become a cop, then a detective. 

The second time his life was forever changed was when he found his wife, daughter and brother in law all murdered in his home. This event, which he can't forget, messed him up so bad that he left his job. When the book begins he's living almost as a homeless and his only source of income is P.I. jobs he takes which are few and far in between. He also has let his appearance go. Long gone is the football player body. Left instead is an unkept overweight blob.

Everything changes when his ex-partner Mary Lancaster comes to tell him that a man by the name of Sebastian Leopold has confessed to killing his family. Amos knows he has to confront this man to see if he's telling the truth. At the same time, when Amos is on the way to the precinct, a massacre is occurring at the local high school in Burlington. His ex-boss asks Amos for help with the investigation. When clues start connecting the murder of his family to the massacre at the high school Amos will need all his abilities to find the murderer who seems to be one step ahead of him always. 

Like I said earlier, pretty good premise. However, I did have some issues with the storyline. I couldn't believe someone who had a perfect memory couldn't figure out why the killer wanted to hurt him so bad. I also couldn't believe the killer waited so long to start his plan against Amos. It bugged me that the secondary characters were portrayed so mediocrely. Neither women were smart enough nor was the FBI. Also, when the culprit was revealed, I didn't buy his reasons.

Regardless of my issues with the story, the writing was good and I do want to continue getting to know Amos better. I already downloaded the next one.

Ride Dirty by Laura Kaye

Caine McKannon is all about rules. As the Raven Riders Sergeant-at-Arms, he prizes loyalty to his brothers and protection of his club. As a man, he takes pleasure wherever he can get it but allows no one close—because distance is the only way to ensure people can’t hurt you. And he’s had enough pain for a lifetime.

But then he rescues a beautiful woman from an attack.

Kids and school are kindergarten teacher Emma Kerry’s whole life, so she’s stunned to realize she has an enemy—and even more surprised to find a protector in the intimidating man who saved her. Tall, dark, and tattooed, Caine is unlike any man Emma’s ever known, and she’s as uncertain of him as she is attracted. As the danger escalates, Caine is in her house more and more – until one night of passion lands him in her bed.

But breaking the rules comes at a price, forcing Caine to fight dirty to earn a chance at love.

“What do I do?” Emma asked.
We,” Caine said as an urgent, demanding possessiveness dug its claws into his soul. Dug them in, deep.
And it was, without question, something he’d never felt before in his whole life. When you felt as unworthy as he did, you rarely believed that you deserved to possess anything at all. But now, in the face of her vulnerability, Caine dared to hope that he might deserve...what? Not her, exactly, because after being viewed as no more than a possession by the couple that ran his group home, the idea of possessing another person made his stomach roll. But maybe the chance to get to know her, at the very least. And maybe even the chance to give her the things he’d always wanted but never been able to have.
Jesus, even daring to hope for such things made him feel like the bottom might fall right out from underneath of him. And when that happened, he’d just fall and fall and fall…
But if she was going to be brave, he sure the fuck would, too. “We’ll figure this out, Emma. Do you hear me? You’re not in this alone.” His voice sounded like it’d been scoured with sandpaper.
She peered up at him, and her bottom lip trembled a little more. “Promise?”
“Jesus, come here,” he rasped, hauling her in against his chest. He held her tight with one arm and stroked her hair back with the other. And Christ, she felt so good there. So warm and soft against all his cold hardness. So right. These thoughts were so foreign to him he hardly knew what to do with them, but that didn’t make them any less true. He had to swallow around a knot of emotion before he could go on, but when he finally did, his voice was rock solid again. “I give you my word, Emma.”
He made one more promise, too, but this one he kept to himself. Once, he’d failed to protect someone he should’ve. Worse than that, her death had been his fault.
Caine vowed to himself—he wouldn’t make the same mistake twice.
This time, he’d rather die first.
