Book Review ~ Adrenaline Rush by Cindy Hogan ~ A Highly Recommended Read!

Adrenaline Rush by Cindy Hogan (Clean YA Suspense)
Length: 360 Pages

A madman with a mission is kidnapping groups of thrill-seeking high school seniors across the country, and it’s up to Christy to stop him.

To do so, she must take on a fearless alter ego and infiltrate a group of adrenaline junkies bent on pushing life to the limit. Death-defying stunts are only the beginning: two groups fit the profile, and Christy must discover the real target before it’s too late. If she chooses the wrong group, more people will disappear. But choosing right puts her as the prime target—with no guarantee that she’ll get out alive.

Young Adults, teens and adults will love this exciting suspenseful adventure with a dash of romance. You won’t want to put it down.


~Rae's Review~
Wow! I just finished this book and it's still on my mind and I'm still in shock! Bravo Ms. Hogan for such an awesome, pulse pounding read! This is the second book in the Christy series but I read it because it precedes Hotwire which I plan to read and post about for Cindy Hogan's upcoming blog tour.

There is a lot of suspense and mystery in this book and the amount of situations our heroine Christy gets into has you wondering how she will get out. The blurb description of the mad man is no joke. The villain Sterling lives up to his name as he kidnaps teens and brainwashes them to carry out his twisted deeds of justice to whomever he believes has violated his believe of " A world without smut. A world without indecision. A world without lawlessness. A world without greed.” He truly believes his convictions and will go through any length to carry them out. Christy is careful but makes a few mistakes as she goes undercover to infiltrate a few thrill seeking high school clique groups that love doing death defying stunts to chase danger and dodge death. She nearly falls for one and all through the book I couldn't wait to see how he will take knowing the truth about her when it comes out.

Although the book is indeed clean in the sense of no language and sex, there are a few cringe worthy scenes of violence involving the villain which adds to the visceral nature of his actions. Mature young readers would be able to take this but parents may want to give this a reader for younger suspense fans. You guys won't be disappointed! Adrenaline Rush it definitely has it all! I don't want to give too much away because the beauty of this book is not knowing much about it going in. Very little of it is predictable and each moment always has something going on. I was bummed whenever I had to put it down because I was always wondering how Christy is going to get out of her situation. Awesome job, Miss Hogan! Once I detach from this story, I'm going to hop right into Hotwire. First, I need a mental break from the rush!

Adrenaline Rush is available now!

I'm so excited about this! Annette K Larsen hooked me when I first read her YA Fantasy Romance Missing Lily and I'm jazzed to say she has a new release out! Annette's book is also on Kindle Scout. A link is included below to check out the book and nominate her book! Enjoy! ~R



Keeping Kinley by Annette K. Larsen
He's noble. She's common. It's complicated. Kinley is content with her common life until a chance meeting with an old friend—a noble—brings the possibility of love. Though Rylan pursues her with a charming carelessness, she doesn’t dare hope that their relationship will be accepted. When Kinley’s livelihood is threatened, she is thrust into his world as a servant, but the Rylan she encounters there isn’t the quirky friend she thought she knew. Can she trust him, or will she be forced to accept that her dreams are only that—dreams?

It's August!

Hey folks!

Can you guys believe it's August already?

Lots of stuff going on in the world of Rae at the moment both personally and professionally. The newsletter will be going out soon and I'm diligently trying to get out a new release ASAHP that was held back a bit due to me not being happy with the end results. Stay tuned because I feel the end is nigh!

I took a breather from book reviewing and reading to deal with my current rental situation, but I miss it! I love the feeling of coming across that epic book you want to shout from the rooftops and losing myself in epic worlds. Sooooo....I'm diving back in. :-D I'm going through the list of books I had waiting in the wings and will try to play catch up. As I'm only one person with a busy schedule, I may not be able to get all the books reviewed right away and some I may sadly have to put aside if they don't grab me enough. Argh! I want to read and review everything but I can see now why so many bloggers have t…
