Smashwords book reviews by CK Brooks

  • Flight of the Valkyrie on May 05, 2011

    A good read, interesting concepts but the finish seemed hurried and short on detail
  • Eye of the Beholder on Sep. 17, 2011

    Going through my library and saw I had not review this book. Even now, it brings a smile. It is always fun to see a jerk get his, but the best is seeing a good person recognized for what she is. It was a different time that we can never fulling appreciate. Good read, sweet story.
  • Hell In Texas on Sep. 17, 2011

    The story started out really well, but the author misplaced her plot. Too many side tracks that had nothing to do with the plot and near the end she realized she for to finish and bang bang through out a theory of an ending that left me saying "huh?" Meredith just as it got interesting your character left town and started a diary. Too many places, people and shopping trips that had nothing to do with the story.
  • The Keeping on May 20, 2012

    Great follow up to The Mating. too many loose ends at ending. Then the jump 3 years to bla? Epilog should tie up loose details not give a peek to next novel. Consider a "satisfying" ending plus the 1st chapter of a synopsis of the next book. You gave The Keeping away to prove your writing ability, but should be charging for the books to follow.
  • Whitey's Way on Nov. 02, 2012

    This book has a lot of fast action, interesting twists good writing, but stops occasionally to have sex. OK, I'm about to die and I really love the guy, so having some frenzied sex to make up for time lost before we die is believable, but take a shower and dawdle around in bed before giving into sex before getting a good night's sleep? No, and action stopper for me. The ending was sort of rushed and left too many questions. Was it to lead into a sequel?
