The conclusion to USA Today Terri Anne Browning’s The Lucy & Harris Novella Series.


That was how Lucy Thornton felt in the aftermath of her breakup with Harris Cutter. Her family thought the best thing for her to do was to put the length of the country between her and Harris.

Reluctantly, she went.

The second Harris sets eyes on Lucy again, he knows she hasn’t moved on any more than he has. Realizing that he screwed up, he sets out to prove that they belong together. But the road to un-shattering Lucy is longer and darker than he ever could have imagined.


My Thoughts:

Lucy is finally finished with high school.  At the beginning of this fourth book in the series, you can almost feel Lucy’s pain.  If you’ve been following the series then this is the ending you have been waiting for.  The author still has the twins making an appearance.  And just like from the beginning they are scene-stealers and will keep you laughing.

Something has happened to Harris that has affected their future together.  And if you haven’t been following the series, you may not understand the circumstances.  This would be a great incentive to start this series from the beginning.  It’s like a puzzle, the pieces only fit together a certain way.

There are times when their age difference becomes very evident.  Other times, Lucy seems wise beyond her years.  Even though this is the fourth book, I still question what there was about Lucy that seemed to draw Harris to her instead of him going for women more his age – or even older.  But it also surprised me every time I realized how young Lu was because she never read that way.  Yes there is a happy ending but in the back of my mind I kept wondering if Lucy would relapse – is there a true HEA in their future.

This was a series that I really liked the fact that this was told in the first person.  I wanted to know what they were thinking and feeling as opposed to having a narrator tell me.  This gives me more of a connection to the character – as if they are talking directly to me and sometimes feeling as if you are a part of the scene.  Lucy also lets the reader in on how she dealt with certain things in the past.  You feel like you want to go out and get her some help.  Especially when you see that she has not come to terms with this problem by the fourth book.  Some people may be able to identify with what she went through.  Having loved ones wanting to get you the help you need is important.  What impressed me was that this author would take this subject on.

Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from InkSlinger PR and from the author. I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review.

Quantum-500Quantum Synopsis:

Someone wants Captain Admiral Zander Graydon dead. Like yesterday. Zander’s convinced his attractive assistant knows more than she’s willing to say, and if he can stop running long enough, he’ll find out exactly what she’s hiding. Lieutenant Marshal Mae Petros is determined to keep her CO safe. Before she tips her hand, however, Mae has to figure out if the alluring man she’s protecting is the real Captain Admiral Graydon. Or an alien shape-shifting imposter.

On the run and no one to trust…not even each other.

Captain Admiral Zander Graydon has seen a lot of action, but almost getting killed three times in one day is pushing it. Only the company of his new assistant, Lieutenant Marshal Mae Petros, makes things a little easier to swallow. Except the delectable Lieutenant Marshal Petros is hiding a number of secrets, and her presence might have something to do with the continued attempts on his life.

It’s no accident Lieutenant Marshal Mae Petros finds herself in the firing line alongside the charming but very off-limits Captain Admiral Graydon. She’s taken the job as the admiral’s assistant to determine if a shape-shifting alien has killed the CO and assumed his form. Whether the admiral is human or not, Mae finds herself getting way too close to him as they run for their lives.

Military to the core, Mae and Zander will have to overcome their suspicions of each other to work together, when they realize the fate of the entire universe is at stake.

My Thoughts:

Zander Graydon isn’t having a good day.  Mae Petros is a woman with attitude.  Are these two going to get along?  Well the only way to answer that question is to read the book.  Our author knows how to create a world where it will take both these two characters to get themselves out alive.  There’s a character named Rian that seems to tie the series together.  He’s a man of mystery with a painful past.  Rian is an intriguing character that you will want to know more about.

It made me think of the movie The Body Snatchers but with a romantic twist.  Add to that a woman who has a mystery to solve on who Zander really is.  It’s a story of you don’t know who to trust and we’re just along for the ride to see how this story plays out.  These two characters are on a journey and we have no other option but to follow them wherever they take us.  They also blur the lines when it comes to personal and business. 

I could picture this series being on the Syfy channel – I would be a devoted follower.  It’s a great mix of action/adventure, science fiction/paranormal and the right amount of romance that would keep me glued to the screen.  They turned Bitten into a series so I can always hold out hope.

I think that if you truly want to know what is going on with the characters that this author has created you need to start this series in order.  It’s a story that I didn’t try to rush through – I wanted to be able to relax and enjoy it from beginning to end.  I wanted to be able to picture this world that the author took the time to create for her readers.  For me, the ending was left up in the air.  It means we’ll have to see how this adventure continues.  If you like the Star Trek franchise then I’m sure you will enjoy this.

Jess Anastasi Bio:

Jess has been making up stories ever since she can remember. Though her messy handwriting made it hard for anyone else to read them, she wasn’t deterred and now she gets to make up stories for a living. She loves loud music, a good book on a rainy day, and probably spends too much time watching too many TV shows. Jess lives in regional Victoria, Australia, with her very supportive husband, three daughters, two hyper-active border collie dogs, and one cat who thinks he’s one of the kids.
