Duplicity by Nicky Webber Review

BLURB

Years ago, I worked as a magazine journalist and stumbled upon a story about an intelligent, wealthy high-class call-girl. It took many months of assurances and rearranging private interviews before I was able to meet her in the flesh. It was one of the most astounding interview sessions I ever encountered. This information forms the basis of this true-life story, DUPLICITY.

This popular new 4.5-star book is based on the true story of Sophia Huston. Born into eye-watering wealth, she is intelligent, stunning, and a charming sophisticate. Life’s perfect until her mother dies, and her father’s business is bankrupted. Sophia and her sister face tough decisions that risks everything.

University educated, Sophia, speaks four languages and sets her sights on re-securing her once affluent lifestyle. At first, she begins a complicated affair with her father’s business associate. Within a year, Sophia secretly plots to live two separate lives. One in a quiet Sydney suburb working as an interior designer to camouflage her real occupation as a secret lover to several wealthy men.

In a few years, she secures a luxurious penthouse and sets up business as a high-class mistress for seven powerful men. Each lover believes he is the one and only, and each pays Sophia a monthly retainer to keep her on-call. Will Sophia’s duplicitous arrangement survive prying questions? How smart does she have to be to survive blackmail and manage her wealthy clients? Will accumulated wealth finally buy her happiness?

REVIEW


I met the Author Nicky Webber at a book signing Ages of Pages held at Hamilton Gardens this year. The banner for this book was in my line of sight all day and after I'd done my PA duties I ventured over to ask about the book.

The blurb pretty much explains the story, and I bought it and started reading it the next week.

It was a story that Mark Twain Quotes

Truth is stranger than fiction, sums up fully.
This book really was a look into a life I couldn't imagine, but once I got to know Sophia as a character, I could understand how perfectly logical her plan was. The book was a story that had me wondering what would happen next when I wasn't reading and to me that makes it a 5 star read. When an author captures my attention when I am doing other chores and all I want is to get back to reading what happens next. 

AUTHOR BIO
Originally a journalist, Nicky loves true stories and picks over the bones of real-life tales, before recreating a narrative rich with emotional turmoil.

Born in Tokoroa, New Zealand, she lived in South Africa for 20 years before returning home in 1994 where she worked as a business manager. In recent years, she has stepped away from the corporate world and resumed her passion for writing.

Her books focus on biographical fiction based on the real-life stories of ordinary people engaged in secretive and extraordinary lives. She enjoys writing both contemporary and historical novels.

Review of Her Unbroken SEAL by Caitlin O'Leary

BUY NOW
https://amzn.to/39WoKo5

SYNOPSIS

What happens when the man you love is now a stranger?

Lydia Hidalgo has been engaged to Clint Archer for five years. He’d been the love of her life since he’d carried her on his back out of the Mexican jungle. She knew the risk of loving a Navy SEAL, and she’d been happy to take it.

After a harrowing mission, Clint wakes up with no memory of what happened, and a brain that doesn’t feel like his own, he doesn’t know what to do, or who to turn to.

When one of his teammates needs his brand of help, he can’t turn him down, but he doesn’t know if he’s the same man he once was. With his mood swings, can he be trusted to do the job? And what about Lydia? What happens when the man she loved with all her heart, is not who he once was? Is there any way that they can find a way back to one another and finally create the future of their dreams?

This is a stand-alone, but having read book two Her Loyal SEAL, (Lydia and Clint’s first story) in the Midnight Delta series, will enhance your enjoyment. (That book is free on Kindle Unlimited.)

REVIEW

What would you do, when the man you love with all your heart, is not who he once was?

This is the second book to focus on Clint and Lydia, and is set 5 years after book 1 Her Loyal Seal (Book #2) which is one of my favorites and although you can read this as a standalone, I think you will get more from the story if you do.

This story focused on the effects of TBI traumatic brain injury.

After a mission that goes pear shaped, Clint wakes up with no memory of what happened, and a brain that doesn’t feel like his own, he doesn’t know what to do, or who to turn to. He's not the same calm and focused Clint Archer, he suffers from uncontrolled outbursts, mood swings and time lapses.
Ms O'Leary has done a lot of research and the story follows Clint's recovery, he being a SEAL of course trys to push it, and he has to come to terms with the fact he may not get to the fitness standard for a Combat ready SEAL.
Then he finds out that one of his teammates is in trouble, and he needs his help, of course he can’t turn him down, but he's still in the specialist rehabilitation center and with his brain still being swiss cheese, can he keep his head in the game?

The story also focused on how Lydia copes with Clint's injury, she's also got her own worries after realizing something from the incident when she first met Clint and it's stopping her from focusing on their future, but it's something she feels would shock Clint and effect their relationship.

What would you do, when the man you love with all your heart, is not who he once was?

This is what I found the most interesting part of this story, I loved how Ms. O'Leary kept it real, but was also glad that it all worked out in the end.



EXCERPT

He leaped over the ledge.

Whap. Whap. Whap.

Fuck!

More glass shattered. Clint was buffeted with concussions as parts of the building behind him exploded. For a split second, he felt his right foot hitting the other rooftop, while his left foot snagged the ledge.

His vision blurred. He thought he felt a hand gripping his arm.

Then his world went black.

***

“Clint!”

He was underwater.

“Talk to me.”

It was Drake. He sounded worried.

***

“He’s bleeding from his ears.”

Drake again.

“Come on, Clint, talk to me.” Was Drake pleading?

“Hand him to me.” That was Finn’s voice. “I’ve got you, Clint. Are you with me? Can you hear me?”

I’m fine.

Wait a minute. Why can’t I feel my body?

Why can’t I open my eyes?

“The terrorists are still focused on the apartment building. We’ve got to get to Mason at the rendezvous point.”

My plan worked!

“Not too fast, we can’t jostle him,” Drake said. He still sounded worried. That wasn’t right.

“Drake, we’ve got to get to safety. The sooner we can get him to a hospital, the better. We need to get over the border to Turkey.”

I’m fine. You can go fast.

“I said don’t jostle him. We’re going slow. I’m the second-in-command, you’re going to listen to me, you got it?”

Jesus, Drake, you need a chill pill. I’m fine.

But am I?

He couldn’t see. He couldn’t feel anything. Apparently, he could only talk in his head. What had happened?

“Drake, Mason just said the helicopter is almost to the rendezvous point. We don’t have a choice, we’ve got to motor.”

“Listen to me, Archer. You don’t die on my watch, got it!”

Die?

Must be bad.

“Clint, think of Lydia. You gotta be strong,” Drake whispered.

Lydia.

Clint had trouble picturing her face. Then everything went dark again.

the Hana Du Rose Mysteries by KT Bowes

Synopsis

Two strangers meet on a dirty London train. One won’t remember. The other will never forget.

Hana can’t imagine life beyond the train ride. Logan shouldn’t even be there. They are prisoners of circumstance. They are both afraid.

Years later in a small town in New Zealand, the strangers hold the key to each other’s future. Their second meeting will unleash a terrifying chain of events. Hana needs help but is Logan the one to give it?

What would you do if your life depended on an object you couldn’t find?
And would you trust a man you hardly knew when everyone around you warned against it?

Sometimes you just have to risk everything. Or lose it all anyway

Review
I had already read one of the Books in this box set, about Hana. But starting the series again from the timelines start meant I understood that book more.
Hana is a character which drove me nuts with her insecurities and doubts with Logan, but I understood where these insecurities were coming from as the books progressed.
Ms Bowes has crafted a second chance romance with a mystery that I thought resolved itself, but by the time I got to the end of the excerpt from the next book in the series, I am once again Wondering if there's more to unravel about what really happened to Hanas first husband.
I enjoyed the books setting, as I am familiar with both area's the book is based in.
Now onto Logan, he was a true alpha male and very interesting to read and learn what made him tick, but he also caused Hanas insecurities with his secrets and lack of communication with Hana.
This series really showed how not communicating with your partner can lead to miss understanding which I thought Ms Bowes wrote well.
I'm going to be buying the other book as soon as payday hits as I need to find out who's watching Hana!

Riot Rules by Callie Hart Release Day Blitz

CARRIE

You think you know me, but you’re wrong.
 
You look at me and see Carrie, the girl with the wild hair and the wild clothes.
Reliable Carrie. Friendly. Quirky. Perhaps a little strange.
What do you really know about me, though?
The details of my past are up for debate.
I’ve been careful to hide my sins, and even more careful to follow the rules.
I do as I’m told. I keep to myself. I don’t mess around with boys, and I’m always ready to run.
At least that’s what I tell myself, anyway.
Since I met him, I’ve broken every single rule in the book.
He’s impossible. Arrogant. Terrifying.
If I’m not careful, Wolf Hall’s golden boy will do more than make me break the rules. He’ll wind up breaking me.
 
 
 
DASH
 
 
First, they hate me, then they hate themselves for wanting me. That’s how it always goes.
 
I’m the smart one. The charming one. The guy with the accent that makes girls go weak at the knees. As a resident of Riot House, I’m destined to rule Wolf Hall. Doesn’t matter where you come from. How much money you have. What your future holds. Cross the path of a Riot House Boy and you’re guaranteed to pay the price.
The girl isn’t special. She’s just another cog, turning in the wheel. So why, then, am I protecting her? And why am I keeping her a secret?
 
Call me a monster.
Call me a fiend.
Call me reprehensible.
 
Call me Lord Dashiell Lovett IV.
 
 
*Riot Rules is book two in the Crooked Sinners Series. It is a complete 145,000 word story that can be read as a standalone, or in conjunction with the other books in the series.

RELEASE BLITZTitle: ConnectionA Temptation Series Standalone NovelAuthor: K.M. Golland

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Connection
A Temptation Series Standalone Novel
Author: K.M. Golland
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: December 17, 2020
 
BLURB
 
A fun new novel featuring the characters from Temptation…
 
From two-time Romance Book of the Year Nominee and bestselling author K.M. Golland, comes a fun, opposites-attract romance with a How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days meets The Hating Game vibe.
 
Like every little girl, I dreamed of becoming a princess. I wanted the prince, the castle, the fairy-tale wedding, and maybe seven dwarfs to call my own. I went to school, studied hard, and graduated to become a teacher, all the while waiting patiently for my Prince Charming to come along and sweep me off my feet. 
But he never came; Will Butler did instead.
Live Trepidation drummer. Rude, crude, obnoxious plumber. Will certainly didn’t fit my perfect Prince Charming mould, but boy did he break it and charm his way into my heart.
I’m just not sure I can let him stay there. And will he even want to when he finds out what I’m hiding?
 
 
GOODREADS LINK: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/56135024-connection

 REVIEW
I really loved this standalone story set in the Temptation Series.
Will and Libby create an entertaining road to romance.
She's definitely not looking for his type, and Also feels that she's not happy ever after material.
But Will doesn't give up.
It was nice to catch up with the rest of the Temptation Crew, and the books set after the last.
This is a standalone story but I think it will make better reading if you've read the others...or after reading this you'll want to go read the rest and get the whole story.
KM Golland has an easy writing style, you slip into her world and get lost in the story.
My weekend disappeared while engrossed in this book.
One of my 2020 favorites.

EXCERPT
 
His misty eyes hover over my chest, so I cross my arms, shielding his view. 
“What are you doing here?” I hiss.
“I’ve come to clean out your pipes.”
“What?”
“Apparently your pipes are blocked.”
I pinch my brow, a headache forming.
“You look confused, sweetheart.”
“I am.”
“Sorry, Will. I had to answer that call—” Carly steps out from behind him, a sneaky smile creeping across her face when her eyes meet mine. “Oh, good. You’re here, Lib. Can you show Will the tap that burst, please?”
“Why?” 
She looks at me like I’m an idiot. “Because he’s the plumber.”
“He’s the plumber?” I blink all the blinks.
Will jiggles a metal toolbox dangling from his hand, his smile full of white dazzling teeth, which look contradictory against his bushy beard.
“Of course you are.” I throw my hands in the air, turn on my heel, walk away, and bite out, “Follow me,” not waiting for him to do so.
“You look good wet,” he says, voice low but humorous as he falls into step beside me.
“Oh, shut up.”
He chuckles. “So tell me what happened.”
“I’m not entirely sure.” I huff. "One minute, I’m standing there, and the next, I’m soaking wet.”
I regret the words as soon as they leave my mouth.
He grins. “You wouldn’t be the first woman to say that to me.”
