Walk a mile

Title: Walk a Mile (The Sixth Sense #2)
Author Name: Sarah Madison

Synopsis

Six months after starting their hunt for a serial killer who is still at large, FBI agents Jerry Lee Parker and John Flynn are partners in every sense. But Jerry has serious doubts about their relationship and whether they would even be together if not for the way Flynn changed after touching a mysterious artifact in a museum.

Flynn hates the extraordinary power bestowed on him by the artifact and wants nothing more than to have a normal life again. Jerry fears that without the unusual connection they forged, Flynn will no longer want or need him. Chasing after a similar artifact takes them back to Flynn’s old stomping grounds in Washington D.C., where his newfound abilities uncover long-buried secrets, the kind people would kill to protect. But they aren’t the only ones looking for these powerful relics, and what they discover will threaten their relationship—and their lives.

This book was such a awesome add to this series!

I will admit I was not a fan of parts of the first book so I was unsure coming into this one and let’s just say this book blew me out of the water it was just so good! I thought what happened to Jerry and Flynn in this book was so funny had me laughing so much and then there were also parts that were harder too. You get your misunderstandings and angst on top of all the action, sprinkled with mystery, which I loved all of it together.
You get to see so much more of them as a couple and you also meet a lot of new characters too.
Then the end omg it was so I can’t even say without giving it away just wow! The author really grabbed me with this story and I loved the whole pretense of this book and the characters.

All together I really loved this book!

I would definitely recommend this book!

This is the second book in the Sixth Sense series and it leaves you hanging just as much as the first one, but in a totally different way.  Madison again, resolved some things, but left gaping holes in others.  I am unsure whether or not I am more frustrated or excited about what that means.
In this book, we get to see very different aspects of Flynn and Jerry.  Not only will they have to relearn what they believe to be true about themselves, but they will have to deal with hidden aspects of each other.  I really enjoyed how when they were searching for answers, we got to see a different side of Flynn.
However, Flynn also frustrated me beyond belief in this story.  I wanted to hit him upside the head with how he was making Jerry feel about their relationship – communication is not their strong suit.  I felt the struggle – the emotion that Jerry was going through – what I wish was that I was able to feel more of what Flynn was feeling.
Despite Flynn’s friends  and their less than stellar introduction, it was nice to see some of Flynn’s background.
I can’t wait to see what happens next – and I hope, with all of my fingers and toes crossed that things are resolved.

I really enjoyed this book which is the 2nd in the “Sixth Sense” series but I did have problems with it. The story begin six months after “Unspeakable Words.” This book continued with the rocky plot ideas that the first book started. Aside from all that the book did have mystery and suspense which is something I thoroughly enjoy from a book. The authors writing style was easy to read and that is what kept me interested in the book. This wasn’t a cliffhanger but it’s clear that more stories are coming and I can’t wait to read the next installment.

Excerpt

Jerry returned his attention to the tableau unfolding in the aisle. Flynn was making his way casually toward Jerry; he yawned, taking his time. 15-A hesitated; Jerry could see that he had stepped into the aisle, but was thinking of sitting back down again. Just then, the door to the toilet opened and the toddler came out into the aisle. Picking up on the air of tension, the child immediately started to wail.

15-A snapped like a wire stretched beyond its tensile strength. Whipping off his sunglasses, he reached into the pocket of his hoodie and pulled out a glass vial. Holding it up high over his head for everyone to see, he shouted, “Everybody stay where you are!”

People glanced up and turned around in their seats, startled and immediately alarmed. 15-A looked around sharply, making sure that no one was trying to rush him. Several people had started halfway up out of their seats to see what was going on; Jerry knew they were remembering United Flight 93.

15-a moved his hand in a broad semi-circle so that everyone could see the vial tucked in his palm. “I have Sarin!” he announced. “If anyone moves, I break the vial. Someone make that child shut up!” Continue reading

4 Stars by Underdogs: The First Stories by Geonn Cannon #FF #Parnormal @geonncannon

1.4

Title: Underdogs: The First Stories
Author Name: Geonn Cannon
Publication Date & Length: November 29, 2011 – 166pgs

Synopsis

Ariadne Willow is a private investigator with a secret weapon: she’s canidae, a person with the ability to change into a wolf at will. Her abilities grant her the ability to get into secure areas without causing alarm, and her heightened senses make tracking people a snap. With the added help of her assistant Dale Frye, there isn’t a case Ari can’t crack.

Whether checking on the welfare of a runaway daughter or taking down a trio of canidae jewel thieves, Ari’s special abilities get her into places ordinary investigators can’t go. Occasionally her canidae side throws her a complication, like suddenly going into heat during a case or leaving her naked with partial amnesia in the middle of a field. Fortunately Ari isn’t just a furry face and has a trick or two up her sleeves even when she’s human.

These short stories were well written, They are very easy quick reads.
I really enjoyed the dynamics between Ari and Dale. Ari and Dale are hard not to love. No matter what life throws at them they figure out a way to get through it and become stronger from it. I absolutely love that there commitment to each other is so strong even though they arent in a relationship.
You never know what these two will get into next but whatever it is you know it will be interesting.

AuthorBio

Geonn Cannon was born in a barn and raised to know better than that. He was born and raised in Oklahoma where he’s been enslaved by a series of cats, dogs, two birds and one unexpected turtle. He’s spent his entire life creating stories but only became serious about it when he realized it was a talent that could impress girls. Learning to write well was easier than learning to juggle, so a career was underway. His high school years were spent writing stories among a small group of friends and reading whatever books he could get his hands on.

Geonn was inspired to create the fictional Squire’s Isle after a 2004 trip to San Juan Island in Washington State. His first novel set on the island, On the Air, was written almost as a side project to another story he wanted to tell. Reception to the story was so strong that the original story was put on the back burner to deal with the world created in On the Air. His second novel set in the same universe, Gemini, was also very well received and went on to win the Golden Crown Literary Society Award for Best Novel, Dramatic/General Fiction. Geonn was the first male author to receive the honor.

While some of his novels haven’t focused as heavily on Squire’s Isle, the vast majority of Geonn’s works take place in the same universe and have connections back to the island and its cast of characters (the exception being the Riley Parra series). In addition to writing more novels based on the inhabitants of Squire’s Isle, Geonn hopes to one day move to the real-life equivalent to inspire further stories.

I didn’t read Unspeakable Words, but I really felt like I didn’t miss out on much as Walk a Mile made it clear as to what was missed. Having finished it though, I SO want to go and read the first book because I absolutely love the characters.
When I picked Walk a Mile up I thought it was just another M/M Romance with a paranormal twist thrown in. Boy I was wrong. This was so much more than that. The characters have so much depth and personality to them, it’s like getting to know new friends. I mean, their relationship certainly wasn’t perfect and had things to be worked on, but what relationship doesn’t?
Everything about the book was so realistic and tangible (almost anyway). I felt like I was there in the conversations and feeling what the characters were feeling.
Flynn is a closed book emotionally. Jerry remembers everything. Things take a wicked turn when they finally track down an artifact that they are hoping the telepathy that Flynn got from an initial artifact which was stolen before the partners could figure out how to reverse it.
Excellent book. I can’t wait to read the next in the series (there HAS to be another one.. there just does. I’ll beg for it if it isn’t already being planned)
