I love a good suspense novel. That means smart and inventive. A book that doesn’t assume I don’t understand. Brother by James Fredericks is just that; an intelligent, fast paced, emotionally compelling story that throws in just enough roller coaster to make me smile.
Brother is about Chase and Jared Riordan. Identical twins who couldn’t be more different, and distant; but as they each face a manipulative and dangerous foe, they learn more about each other and themselves than they had ever expected to.
I loved every moment of this book. It was beautifully executed. James Fredericks shows us a varied range of emotion as we experience the bonds of brotherhood and the bonds of friendship. I love that the protagonists are completely different in so many ways and those differences are complex; the terms by which they live and the laws that rule them. Each character was rich and vibrant, beautifully adding to the story’s journey. If you love a great suspense/ thriller, please read Brother, you won’t regret it.
Well, on Nov 2-3, less than two weeks, I’ll be at my first book event with three other lovely lady authors, Magen McMinimy, Brandy L. Rivers and Sarah M. Cradit. Now we all know each other from our friend Facebook, but we decided to share our works with one another so that we could familiarize ourselves with our writing before we all meet up. I just finished the first book, In too Deep by Brandy L. Rivers… FANTASTIC!! I can’t wait to sink my teeth into her other works, but for now, I shall review the first book about Edenton and then move on to the next author. If anyone is near, Kirkland, WA on Nov 2 or Nov 3, please come see us at the Northwest Bookfest!! We would love to meet you!!
Wow, What an AMAZING book!! Brandy Rivers is a true talent in the vein of Kresley Cole. River’s writing is exceptional and engaging and she has a great mastery of her characters. They grow and change and have their flaws, but the feel is instinctive and the flow is easy and appealing. The world she has created in Edenton is fantastic. A Small town in the wilderness filled with paranormals called Others. This is the story of Fallon and Brody and it’s exciting, hot, sexy and full of adventure. And yeah, hot!!
The supporting characters have all the draw and definition I crave as a reader. They are all different and some are good and some are bad and some are both. There is a glossary at the end of the book to keep straight all the Others and the terms they use. I found I didn’t need it, but it was nice to have it there.
I give this Book 5 stars and recommend it to anyone looking for a paranormal romance erotica. Just Fantastic!!!
