This was a short story That packed a big punch…. The characters were very well-developed especially given that it was only 53 pages…. an entertaining read that I actually read twice, because I wanted to go back and see if I had missed anything….

Tess is elderly and living in a home for the elderly when she meets Sharon a caretaker who she befriends….. The relationship between these ladies was lovely….. they both played such an important part in each others life, giving them each something they needed at that time in their lives….

Tess has a story that needs to be told…. something her son needs to know before she passes away… there are some twists, some secrets are revealed, and of course there is a tattoo….

Can you hide a secret with the whole world watching?

When an explosion rips apart a Chicago building, the lives of three women are forever altered.

A year later, Cecily is in mourning. She was supposed to be in the building that day. Instead, she stood on the street and witnessed it going down, with her husband and best friend inside. Kate, now living thousands of miles away, fled the disaster and is hoping that her past won’t catch up with her. And Franny, a young woman in search of her birth mother, watched the horror unfold on the morning news, knowing that the woman she was so desperate to reconnect with was in the building.

Now, despite the marks left by the tragedy, they all seem safe. But as its anniversary dominates the media, the memories of that terrifying morning become dangerous triggers. All these women are guarding important secrets. Just how far will they go to keep them?


This is my first book by, Catherine McKenzie… but definitely not my last!

WOW! This book was just so delightfully twisted! The title really should have been; Who is the Best Liar of Them All? It is so hard to review a book like this, because you don’t want to give anything away…. such an amazing rollercoaster ride…. I want you to enjoy the ride as much as I did!

Along with the twisty plot were some pretty fantastic characters…Cecily was so likable and relatable, I really could see a lot of myself in her… a mom just really wanting the best for her kids after going through a major tragedy and some other pretty major issues… Kate and Frannie I found less likable and less relatable…. but they were pretty darn well developed….. and I really did spend the majority of the book trying to figure out the psychology behind their actions….. liars lying to each other, nothing more unreliable than that!

I emphatically recommend this book to all psychological thriller fans and anybody that enjoys a crazy ride of a book!😍

*** thank you so much to the publisher and Net Galley for a copy of this book ***

Book is being released in April 2018 hope you enjoy! 💛


Combust by K. Bromberg


Combust by K. Bromberg

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Hot Stuff Stars


Just how hot will firefighter Grady Malone turn up the heat?

Songwriter Dylan McCoy has been burned.

By her boyfriend she found in her bed . . . with someoneelse.

By the contract she signed that obligates her to work with him until the songs for his new album are complete.

By her agent when she asked Dylan to keep their breakup on the down-low.

When she finds herself in Sunnyville, she refuses to let her new roommate burn her too. Still . . . a rebound has never looked so good.

That’s her first thought when she sees firefighter Grady Malone.
Sexy. Charismatic. Unapologetic. He’s a man who carries his own scars—the ones on his back, the survivor’s guilt on his soul, and the fear in his heart.

When an unexpected visitor puts their roommate status to the test, will their undeniable attraction burn out, or will they both take a chance and play with fire?


Well if sexy firefighters are your bag, then this little beauty is just the thing for you!

Combust is about the 2nd Malone brother Grady, we saw the first Grant (The Cop) in

Cuffed (Everyday Heroes, #1) by K. Bromberg

Even though this is book #2 in the series, they can all be read as Standalones.

Dylan McCoy is a songwriter, she has done very well for herself and made quite a name for herself in the music business, she even now writes songs for a famous rockstar, who she was involved with for a couple of years……..that was until she found him in bed with someone else!

Nursing a broken heart she decides to get away from life for a while, this is going to be difficult, because she is still under contract and still has to work with the rockstar and pretend everything is “Hunky Dory” with their love life (because of said contract)

After speaking to her brother he convinces her to go and stay at his best friends house for a while, so she packs her things and sets out for Sunnyville.

Grady is a firefighter, he is a kind, sweet man who has his own problems to deal with, but being the nice guy that he is, lets his best friends sister room at his house for a while.

When Dylan and Grady meet, well they immediatly hit it off and become friends, but there is an underlying attraction between them.

When that atraction is unleeshed, well lets just say that it is good that Grady is a Firefighter, cause it is SMOKING 🔥🔥

Dylan is very insecure about herself, her rockstar boyfriend Jett cheated on her with a gorgeous stick thin model, and Grady, well Grady has his own scars, some you can clearly see.

I loved this story, the characters were wonderful people that had been dealt shitty blows.

There were a couple of lump in the throat moments, and also a time where my heart was in my mouth!

🎧🎧Excellently narrated by the perfect dreamteam duo Andi Arndt #SexyVoiceQueen and Sebastian York #SebYes this is one that you should add to your TBR.
