A Review of Loose Ends by Electa Rome Parks

This is the sequel to The Ties That Bind where I was first introduced to Christian, Brice, and Mia. Christian and Brice are best friends and Brice and Mia on the surface appeared to be happily married. But Brice had a temper which he sometimes couldn’t control and Mia got the brunt of it. When Brice beat her for the very last time, and she ended up in the hospital, it was there she finally mustered up enough courage to divorce him.
In Loose Ends, Mia has moved on with her life which included finishing college and she and Christian are now married with a beautiful daughter. Everything seemed to be going nicely until Brice reached out wanting to make amends to both of them. Brice wanted his homeboy back and he wanted to see Mia again. Mia was against them meeting Brice and his new wife, Kree because while she wanted to move past the hurt, she was still drawn to Brice.
Let’s just say it wasn’t smooth sailing as Brice has reared his ugly ways again by beating on his second wife. And if th…

A Review of Dying for Revenge by Eric Jerome Dickey

EJD has delivered yet again in the third installment of the Gideon series. This time there’s hit out on Gideon by an adversary who will stop at nothing to see him dead. But it will take more than paying top dollar to vicious hit men and an equally vicious “woman hunter” to finish him off.
In this installment, Gideon is faced with protecting his family: a woman who birthed him but gave him up and now a young who may or may not be his mother’s son while working as a hired killer. In the midst of this, he is lured to a job in Antiqua and it wasn’t until he landed that he got a message from Konstantin, his handler, that it was a setup. He had no weapons except Hawks (a female assassin and his lover) and quick thinking.
Together, they created weapons out of empty soda cans, a pen, liquor bought at the airport, along with their varied martial arts skills. The fight scenes were like watching an action movie where I cheered for Gideon when he landed a few blows and winced when he was knocked d…
