Domestics by Jo Davis is a terrific read.  Two short stories that waste no time getting into the action.

Sarah is married to Keith and severely abused by him.  The day he beat their child Brandy to death,  Sarah's life forever changed.  In a heated rage,  Keith learned exactly what he has put Sarah and Brandy through.

After the death of her husband,  Sarah becomes a counselor for domestic violence.  She helps these abused women in more ways than one. 

The day Rick comes into Sarah's life,  she finds herself attracted to a man after ten years of solitude.  They seem to be a perfect pair,  talking until all hours of the night.

Rick is a Private Investigator and retired police officer.  After the sudden death of his partner,  he vows to prove it was murder.  Little does he know that his new found love is tied into it.

The last short story in this title is Smoke.  Charlie finds himself craving the one thing he is most trying to quit....cigarettes.  While on a plane,  the craving becomes unbearable.  He suddenly finds a cigarette in his belongings that he didn't know he had.

Knowing he had a cigarette made it that much worse.  When he decides to create his own fire,  the airline attendants become worried about what he may be doing in the bathroom.

Lucky for them, there is a Fire Marshall on the plane,  but not so lucky for Charlie.

Davis did a magnificent job with this title.  Full of action from beginning to end,  I loved this book.  I give Domestics *****(5) Stars,  BK Walker, Author of "Near Suicide" and "Dares And Dreams".  http://bkwalkerbooks.weebly.com

Silenced by Raebeth McGee was a fabulous read.  If you like the book "Speak" you are going to love "Silenced".

Amber Brown spent her entire existence believing that Dave was her father.  When she learns that he is not her biological father,  Amber goes through severe emotional trauma and depression.  She just can't believe her mother has lied to her all this time.

When they move to a new town,  she is consumed by what she calls "the darkness"  and cuts herself to relieve the pain she feels within.  With a hatred toward people and anger towards her mother and Dave,  she feels that cutting is the only way to feel better.

When she finds a friend, Casey, the first day at her new school,  she isn't sure what to think,  let alone trust.  She does give Casey a chance though, unable to shake the feeling that she looks so familiar. 

Casey introduces her to parties,  drugs,  and her new boyfriend Landon.  In the midst of it all,  Amber wants to find her real dad,  and he may be closer than she thinks.

Follow Amber through her trials,  overcoming depression and cutting,  and the discovery of love and life.

Silenced was an excellent read with a great eye opener to the world of cutting.  This is a serious action among many teenagers today,  and lets us into a world of what may actually be going through one's mind with this type of behavior.

Prince's Donor by Sindee Lynn was the perfect mix of fantasy and romance!  This is one title that is sure to leave you yearning for more.

Jenna James is a young woman living in Washington.  She is a bit shy,  overweight,  and has a self image issue.  Having never been with a man,  she longs to be loved,  and fantasizes about her first encounter.

Now that Vampires have become legal,  and the world has accepted that there is another race other than humans living among them,  Jenna joins the new Donor Database.

Having been put down by co-workers and her mother,  she decides this is a decision that is long overdue to be made on her own terms.  Hoping that she can become a donor for a Vampire,  she waits to be chosen while the years pass.

Just when she was ready to pull her name from the database,  her dreams come true when a handsome,  mysterious Vampire knocks on her door.  Sure he has the wrong door,  she opens it,  and to her surprise he asks for her by name.

Unable to speak,  and unaware that he can read her thoughts,  she comes to realize that this Vampire is in desperate need to feed his animal instincts.

What she never expected was this gorgeous Vampire was the Prince of all Vampires,  and he wants her to be his donor.  Syrian,  the Prince,  is taken by surprise at his feelings that overwhelm him about Jenna,  coming to realize that he cannot live without his "Sweet Jenna".

Lynn did a fantastic job writing Prince's Donor.  I found myself not wanting to put this title down until I got to the end,  and wanting more when I did. 

There are many woman like Jenna in today's society,  searching and hoping to find a love like Jenna and Syrian's.  This was a wonderful book and I do hope to see much more from Sindee Lynn.  Magnificent writer!

And Again....Let Me Say This by B. Swangin Webster was a fantastic read!  Webster says it all in her opening pages:

"I wrote this book, not as a public service announcement, but as entertainment, but somehow it has turned into something so much more. It tackles hard social issues, like self esteem, or the lack thereof. It tackles domestic violence and how people may suspect something but not say anything. It tackles friendship and how much a true friend may or
may not know about a particular situation and what their reaction is to it. If we know someone in this type of situation, we must, as a society, get involved, by making a phone call, or leaving a pamphlet or just listening. Remember Cheryl could be you, or it could be me, or it could be your sister, or even your brother (yes, it happens to men also) but most
importantly, it could be your parents."

This title is the follow up to "Let Me Just Say This".  It is a title though that you can get by without reading the first book,  and still know what is going on.

Cheryl is a woman with many self image problems.  She is divorced from Kevin, who beat her on a regular basis, and continues to extend his anger, and his hands to Cheryl and her children.

Cheryl has recently been dating Mathew,  who not only loves her,  but wants to help her to stand up for herself.  In trying to do so,  he finds himself arrested,  and frustrated as Cheryl keeps making excuses for Kevin's actions.

Mathew also has his own issues to deal with,  one being his ex-wife Sherrie and their daughter Shania.

When Cheryl's daughter Kayla starts acting out with extremely negative behavior,  Kevin blames Cheryl and her new lover Mathew.  When Kevin tries to lay his hands on Cheryl in a heated screaming match,  Mathew ends up in a fight with him. 

Cheryl is a very confused woman,  only wanting to find someone to love her for her.  Her story is an emotional roller coaster ride,  and one of self discovery.

The plot of this story was very mesmerizing.  There are many woman out there like Cheryl and we have seen it in society many times.  All the characters tie together in some form,  and without giving too much away,  it amazes me the irony of how they relate.

I loved Cheryl and Matthew.  I was rooting for them during the entire story.

The only problem I had with this title was that all the characters were written in the first person.  Sometimes it got a little confusing as to who was actually speaking.  The astericks let you know when there would be a character change,  but when they were remembering the past,  the switch was a little sudden. 

Webster did a great job with the storyline itself and I hope she will be writing another book in this saga.  I give it ****(4) Stars,  BK Walker, Author of "Near Suicide" and "Dares And Dreams".
