Book Review and Excerpt from UNFORGIVABLE by Tina Wainscott

Tina Wainscott, aka Jaime Rush, is one of those authors who once you read her novels, you will hunt down her others and read all of them until the bookstore runs out of them. Thank goodness for Kindle because that is exactly what happened.

Both bookstores nearby closed, so I tracked down her books in pre-owned book stores, and when they ran out, I contacted her and asked why she wasn’t available on Kindle. To my delight, she was working on it. I loved her books so much that when they came available, I downloaded them again. Yep, I’m an addict, but you already knew that if you read my blog.

So, here is my short and to the point review, since I talked Tina into giving us an excerpt from Unforgivable to share.

I loved the characters, the intrigue, the tension. The paranormal was good without being over the top. The author's description of the town and the people made you feel as if you were really there.

Excerpt from Unforgivable:

Silas turned to The Boss. “What’d you think of Katie, big guy? Pretty cute, huh?”
The dog let out a sigh, agreement if Silas ever heard it. 
Katie. Even though he hadn’t spoken with her in eighteen years, she’d been part of him for so long, he felt as though she somehow belonged to him. He had to remind himself that she didn’t. He couldn’t have her for himself, and that was something he’d accepted long ago. His reasons for coming back were purely unselfish.
The Boss snorted, as if to contradict him.
“Totally unselfish, my friend.”
He glanced at the place where he’d found Katie lurking. Good thing she hadn’t asked why he’d come back to town. He wasn’t prepared to tell her the truth or a lie. There were things he had to do first, one of them earning her trust. You couldn’t just throw this kind of thing at a woman the first time you’d seen her in years. 
Hi, Katie. You’re looking well.   Me, I’m fine.  By the way, someone wants to murder you in the most heinous way you can possibly imagine. And it’s someone you know.

Intriguing, huh? And don't you just love that he talks with his pup? Yeah, me too.

My rating: ★★★★★

Sensual Level: Spicy – Recommend for adults only, but nothing graphic)
Violence: Medium – Some scenes are adult only
Language: Similar to what you’d hear in a PG13 movie

Now the great news is Unforgivable is a current bestseller and is still only .99 cents through Amazon.

And for a limited time, Tina has priced her new release, Until the Day You Die, at only 2.99, so grab them both.

"As in any fairytale, everything good must come to an end." ENTANGLED DREAMS:

Now, if you’ve read any of my novels or excerpts, you know I don’t do happy-go-lucky beginnings; and as in any fairytale, a little rain must fall, or in the case of my stories, I prefer a monsoon. This week’s excerpt: But alas, as in any good fairytale, everything good and wonderful must come to an end. After the tragic accident that snatched her mother away from Alexandra, her father moved them away from the beaches of Destin to another beach in Florida. Cocoa Beach. Cocoa Beach was loud, the water murky, and there were no weekend adventures as there had been in Destin. Her father married her evil stepmother, Lilith, who Alexandra was certain was a witch with her long, black as midnight hair and pale-white skin as if she’d never seen sunlight. Her father had admitted he wasn’t in love with Cruella, as she had come to think of the witchy woman, but that he’d wanted Alexandra to have a mother and siblings. Well, she definitely got that. The k

To prologue or not to prologue, that is the question. Readers, please weigh in!

Personally, I love prologues. They get you right into the action whether it was in the past or something exciting that is to come. But that’s exactly why most agents’ blogs I’ve read say not to use them. Paraphrasing…“If you need a prologue, then your story must not be strong enough…” Hmm … well, I like them, and I use them. But I’m curious what readers think, and I’d love you to weigh in. AND, if you have some great examples, please leave the title in the comment section. Now … here’s what I’ve noticed. Plenty of bestselling books have used them, even though they aren’t always called prologues . Same diff in my opinion. My biggest example is ‘Twilight’. If that little blurb wasn’t in the beginning, I don’t think I would have made it through the first chapter. How about movies? I don’t watch a lot. But I’ve started to notice how many have “prologues”. I also don’t have cable, but I have NetFlix, and hubby has just started watching ‘Breaking Bad’. Okay … I

The rule of thirds: No matter what you do, someone will hate you. Get over it and Write On!

No matter what you do in life, a third of the people will love you, a third will hate you, and the rest will be indifferent. Get over it and Write On! Yes, I'm talking to myself. If you're listening, GREAT! It's good advice! Is it easy advice? Heck No! For some reason, even though that percentage is rather low on my books--the percentage of people who hate my books runs about 4.6%--it still hurts.  Note: I only averaged the 'firsts' in my books, the books I actively promote. Because if I go to the second, third, and fourth books in my series, those numbers drop drastically. Obviously, if readers don't like my first book, they don't go on to the rest of my books in a series, so those books receive little to zero one-star reviews. So...if the number of one-star reviews we receive is less than five percent--Thank God ALL of the 33 1/3% of the haters don't write reviews--why do we get so depressed when we receive a one-star review
