Book Review! Genes by Mary Ting

Genes (International Sensory Assassin Network #3) by Mary Ting
Genre: Young Adult (Dystopian/Romance)
Date Published:  June 30, 2020
Publisher: Vesuvian Books


While searching for the HelixB88 anti-serum on the black market, Ava uncovers valuable intel that may help the rebels in their fight to bring down ISAN—the location of a hidden facility. But first, the insurgents must find the female citizens unexpectedly displaying powers without use of the Helix serum before ISAN captures them.

As the rebels join forces with other sectors, ISAN plans their destruction by using someone they don’t suspect at the rebel home base. A traitor within.

Now, Ava must make a dangerous decision, one that could risk their capture—or worse.

Genes is the third book in the ISAN series by Mary Ting. For some reason I went into reading this one thinking it was the final book. Thankfully, it is not. I love the characters in this book. All of them. Good. Bad. Seemingly good. Seemingly bad. All in between. Each character has something to contribute to this story. There were twists and turns, ups and downs, and all arounds. We're given the answers to some things only to have more questions take there place. It's like adding fuel to the fire that already keeps me wanting more.

International Bestselling, Award-Winning, Author Mary Ting/M. Clarke resides in Southern California with her husband and two children. She enjoys oil painting and making jewelry. Writing her first novel, Crossroads Saga, happened by chance. It was a way to grieve the death of her beloved grandmother, and inspired by a dream she once had as a young girl. When she started reading new adult novels, she fell in love with the genre. It was the reason she had to write one-Something Great. Why the pen name, M Clarke? She tours with Magic Johnson Foundation to promote literacy and her children’s chapter book-No Bullies Allowed.

Book Review! A Little Bit Wicked by Melissa Foster

A Little Bit Wicked (The Wickeds: Dark Knights at Bayside #1) by Melissa Foster 
Genre: Adult (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: June 17, 2020
Publisher: World Literary Press

A captivating new standalone romance by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster. When the Dark Knights at Bayside and the cast of Bayside Summers collide, sparks fly, and trouble—or maybe love—is not far behind.

Set on the sandy shores of Cape Cod, the Wickeds feature fiercely protective heroes, strong heroines, and unbreakable family bonds. If you think bikers are all the same, you haven't met the Dark Knights. The Dark Knights are a motorcycle club, not a gang. Their members stick together like family and will stop at nothing to keep their communities safe. Their stories are told in the same loving, passionate voice readers have come to adore from Melissa. Some of the Wickeds' love stories will be hilariously fun, others will tear at your heartstrings with injections of humor, but they will all leave you wishing you could climb between the pages and join them!

What do a cocky biker and a businesswoman who has sworn off dating bad boys have in common? According to Chloe Mallery, not much.

Justin came into the Wicked family after a harsh upbringing by a thieving father. He's gone through a lot to become a true Wicked, and he's made them proud. Now he's ready to show the woman he loves exactly what type of man he is. But Chloe has worked hard to move past her difficult upbringing, and she's wary of getting involved with a man who looks like he's walked right out of it. When tragedy strikes, will their trying pasts draw them together, or will Justin's protective nature be too much for Chloe's independent heart to accept?
**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**

A Little Bit Wicked is the first book in The Wickeds: Dark Knights at Bayside series by Melissa Foster. Justin and Chloe's story is sweet and steamy. Justin knows what he wants, and when he finally decided to just go for it... Chloe didn't have a chance. She put up a good fight though. These two are opposites, but they're pretty perfect for each other. They've both had a rough life, but their experiences complimented each other in that they both helped each other be better people. I love the characters this author writes with their networks of family and friends. Folks like these need to exist in the real world.
