The storyline is really intriguing; I just love it – Jay S.

Loved it! It always kept me wanting to read more. I can’t wait for the sequel – Rob S.

As an EMT I am a holder of hands, a consoler of families, a patient advocate, a fixer of the broken. I am the saver of lives while putting my own aside. We work long tireless shifts, having no personal life, and its all worth it. “No greater love has he….” – Karen T.

Picking Murphys Radio Commercial

What I liked about the novel Bereft Reality, by James Summers: The way Summer flipped the script and her revenge and everyone’s need for power and control. But I have to be honest about one thing…halfway through the book I almost felt desensitized to what was going on. I loved the ending because I never saw it coming. And I have decided I need a jake… – Brandy M.
