Tough One to Swallow | The Finish by Jade Eby

Tough One to Swallow | The Finish by Jade Eby

The Finish by Jade Eby packs an emotional punch. It is not an easy read. Domestic violence and the motivations of the abused are front and center for over 400 pages. It was hard not to scream at Tawny as I flipped the pages of The Finish while at the same time empathizing with her need to stay, her need to make things right, her need to fix him. We’ve all been in situations like that even if we have not been the victims of domestic violence. And that is what makes The Finish so assessable, so finish-able. There’s something in Tawny’s struggle to find herself amid all the hurt that is a reflection of the reader’s own experiences. Do not doubt the warning on this book, “For mature audience only.” Jade holds nothing back as she moves through Tawny’s story. If you do start reading, be prepared for a roller coaster of emotions. I’m almost certain that you’ll be in need of some sunshine, unicorns and load of cotton candy when you are finished.     The Quick Review   book review finish eby Twitter 7 Facebook 5 Google+ 0 Pinterest 0 StumbleUpon 0

Book Review 72: Tenacious by Jade Eby

Book Review 72: Tenacious by Jade Eby

I was getting concerned about Lacey after finishing “Audacious.” I thought that Lacey was losing her bite as she sunk deeper and deeper into a life of crime. Thankfully, the things I love most about Lacey—her takes-no-guff-attitude and her willingness to take “justice” in her own hands—make a brilliant return in the final tumultuous installment of the Back to Bad series. “Tenacious” by Jade Eby receives a thumbs up for bringing Lacey back “home” and back to her “senses.” The Quick Review    Twitter 6 Facebook 8 Google+ 0 Pinterest 0 StumbleUpon 0

Book Review 65: Stuck by Jade Eby

Book Review 65: Stuck by Jade Eby

Stuck is a departure from the bad girls that Jade usually writes about. Overall, the story is short, sweet and provides a few chuckles. It’s worth subscribing to Jade’s newsletter to get your hands on this pleasing short story that you can enjoy while sipping your favorite cup of coffee, tea or wine. “You need to get ahold of yourself,” Terri, the librarian from the adult section says from behind me.I send her a glare that’s supposed to be menacing but give up halfway there and smile instead. She’s impossible to be mad at.“Don’t give me dirty looks, missy. I’m not the one giving Damian googly eyes.”“Shh. I do not have googly eyes, Terri. Don’t you have some old lady looking for a bodice ripper you need to help?” I ask, putting the gossip magazine back where it belongs.   About the Book I received this book free from the author for subscribing to her newsletter.       Twitter 5 Facebook 8 Google+ 0 Pinterest 0 StumbleUpon 0
