REVIEWS (English Edition)

Despite having placed the book down due to being busy, as soon as I picked it up again, I had no problem being wrapped back up into the story. The characters are able to be connected with and each have their own quirks that give them life. The tone of the book is so casual that it feels as if you’re right in the thicket of the story’s environment. Additionally, the tone complements the characters very well as it emphasizes the thoughts of each of them that makes their situations feel real. Anytime a book can make me use my imagination to paint the picture, it’s doing a darn good job….  Kelsey

Who doesn’t like a gritty love story. The romance plays out to be true to imagination with a real flare for an intimate setting and flawless character portrayals, the character ‘Trace’, being my favorite. The authors writing style sucks you in to the pages and I found I couldn’t put it down.

I was actually late for an appointment yesterday as I was so engrossed reading this book on the train that I missed my stop lol. I hope Tamara brings a lot more romance to our lives, and I will definitely be watching out for more books to come by this talented new author….  Pennie Mae Cartawick,  Author of the Sherlock Holmes book series

Die Letzte Sünde
von Chelle Cordero
Deputy Sheriff Commander Jake Carlson hat alle Hände voll zu tun … er ermittelt in
einem brutalen Mehrfachmord, sein Sohn hat Probleme in der Schule und er selbst
hat eine rachsüchtige Exfrau am Hals. Er trifft die junge, freigeistige
Notfallsanitäterin Julie Jennings. Als Julie zum Objekt einer Obsession wird,
schweben sie beide in Gefahr …
Für Matt und Julie hatte ihr Dienst begonnen wie viele andere. Sie wurden zu einem kleineren
Verkehrsunfall gerufen, zu jemandem mit Schmerzen in der Brust und zu einem
Krebspatienten, der zur Behandlung ins Krankenhaus musste. Viele der
Gemeinschaften im Norden des Staates New York hatten Notfalldienste unter
Vertrag, um dem bestehenden Rettungsdienst unter die Arme zu greifen und auf
medizinische Notfälle zu reagieren. Ob bezahlt oder nicht, der qualifizierte
Dienst schickte immer Rettungsassistenten, die mit den meisten Notfällen
umgehen konnten. Wenn die Notfallsanitäter ausgesandt wurden, machten ein
weiteres Paar Hände und Infusionen oft den kritischen Unterschied.
Dieser Notruf kam über Funk für ein Brandopfer, also war keiner der Polizisten,
Feuerwehrmänner, ehrenamtlichen Rettungshelfer oder Sanitäter darauf
vorbereitet, was sie in diesem abgelegenen Werkzeugschuppen vorfanden. Von
außen wirkte das ergraute Holz friedlich genug, und das eine kleine Fenster war
schmutzverkrustet. Julie dachte nicht, dass sie unter normalen Umständen den
Schuppen eines zweiten Blickes gewürdigt hätte. Aber das hier war alles andere
als normal. Niemand hatte mit der Horrorszene im Inneren gerechnet.
REVIEW (English
Edition)
Cordero Delivers!
Chelle Cordero strikes a winning combination of romance and suspense in this medical crime
thriller. Detailed research and characterizations coupled with a break-neck
pace create a hard-to-put-down-read.

The Trouble with Playing Cupid by Tamara Philip

One New Year’s Eve, shy singer, December Brown drunkenly texts her talk show host pal, Trace Randall, about her long time crush on the aloof actor, Tom Elmswood. Thinking the two celebrities would make a cute couple, he unwisely decides to play matchmaker… in front of a live studio audience.

Things start to go downhill when Tom admits he’s never even heard of December before. Now what seemed like a sure fire hit quickly becomes a flop. Will these two lonely hearts ever make a love connection or has this cupid’s arrow missed its mark?

Reviews

Loved It!

I laughed and cried along with the characters. I fell in love with the story line and the Characters. I Love Tom! He was the most down to earth man with a heart of Gold! December AKA Dee banter and sweet talk had me on a emotional roller coaster. I would love to have friends like Clarissa and Terrence. This book (genre) is a book that I have never read. Tamara wove magic when writing this and also has made me become a fan of Romantic Comedies. Awesome!!!

  April Nichols Baker

The danger of drunken texts

A very well written sweet story. I especially liked how the celebrities came across as real people who were lucky enough to have jobs doing something that made them happy (and pays well!). It could have used a little more conflict – a backstabbing ex, some racist relatives, a kidnapping, but on the other hand, it’s nice when people just get along without a lot of unnecessary drama. Plus, you can see where conflict might come up in the next book.

Note: I didn’t know bw/wm was a thing so now I’m intrigued! In any case the woman is clearly described as a light skinned black (or possibly biracial) woman. Think Halle Berry, not Lupita Nyong’o. To the author, if the skin tone of the cover model is the worst thing somebody can find to say about your work then well done, madam! Well done!
