Break In The Storm (WeHo Book #2) by Sherryl D. Hancock

35127293 GENRE: Lesbian Romance
This is actually the third book in the WeHo series. In this installment Hancock introduces us to two new characters. As always they are develop and complex. Hancock is a master of creating realistic characters. 
The theme of the work required for relationships is present as always. It is nice to read lesbian books that are not all about sex. This series is a must read for anyone who enjoyed The 'L' Word.

When Angels Fall (WeHo Book #1) by Sherryl D. Hancock

33545822GENRE: Lesbian Romance

This is a book I found by a happy accident on Kindle. It was the first I read by Sherryl Hancock and it got me hooked. She does an amazing job at creating characters that you really get to know. The plot flows incredibly well and is definately character driven. The love story has it's ups and downs that are directly related to the flaws and strength of the characters. I would highly recommend this whole series.

When Love Wins (WeHo Book 0) by Sherryl D. Hancock

33547899GENRE: Lesbian Romance, Military
I stumbled upon this series through Kindle Unlimited. I managed to read all the author had out in the series in less than a week. Needless to say I really liked it.
Hancock creates characters that you really like and want to get to know. Not all authors can do this and the extent in which she managed this feat is incredible. It makes you wish you could meet and hang out with these incredible people. 
In this first book(Book 0) you get to meet two of these incredible characters, Shenin and Taylor. They meet in the Air Force during the time of "Don't ask, Don't tell." They are best friends but more develops. They have to fight the murky world of being career military and being your true self.
The way this issue is approached was flawless. In fact Hancock understands the military because she also broached the subject of fraternization between officer and enlisted. It was those little things that make this story genuine and a must read.

Jolt by Kris Bryant

20702686GENRE: Lesbian Romance
This was an enjoyable book. The storyline was cute and easy to follow. The characters were developed. Bethany as the narrator lends a quirky and awkward take on the story. The whole idea of love finding you no matter how hard you try to avoid it is always a good one. Especially when the relationship begins as a friendship. Good showing for a first book by Bryant.

The Lies (Zombie Ocean #8) by Michael John Grist

36096834GENRE: Post Apocalyptic
Grist continues his saga of the downfall of mankind. The plot lines clear up and then get all twisted again, in a good way, throughout this series. In THE LIES the characters evolve and become even more complex than they were before, especially Lara, Amo, and Anna. All three characters find out more about the world, themselves, and the force that controls them.
This book seems to be getting closer to an ending of the saga. It is almost like the three main characters all know what they need to do now. Looking forward to seeing what changes occure in book nine.

Searching For Forever by Emily Smith

20702892GENRE: Romance, Lesbian
The setting of a hospital emergency room is believable and leads me to think the author knows the environment. The characters were not shallow but not deeply developed it was almost to predictable. The dynamics of their relationship has the quirk of the attration being there but both fighting that for different reasons. 
Overall it was an enjoyable book. A nice quick read with some potential cold shower moments.

What Stands In A Storm by Kim Cross

22609348GENRE: NonFiction, Disaster
I remember hearing about the horrible tornados that struck Tuscaloosa. Who in SEC country didn't hear about it and feel pain even if the Tide were your rivals. 
What I didn't realize was how wide spread the tornado outbreak was in Alabama. Kim Cross does a magnificent job using investigative reporting and research skills to recreate the horrible event. She uses the actual words of survivors as well as those who were lost during those days. Through her words we feel the horror, hope, and healing that occured from this "act of God".
I recommend this book to anyone who is a weather geek, a disaster geek, or just like a truely heartfelt story told by a talented author.
