    Unmask Me Anytime, BabyThere isn t anything I didn t like about this story It was really phenomenal Cooper tugged on all my heartstrings There is something to be said for someone who is a professional self flagellator I was pulling for him to pull his head out of his ass the whole time In some ways it was exhausting, but I was invested in his journey and that made it easier.Westley was a rock for Coop There was a lot going on A lot that had to be hard to deal with Cooper certainly didn t Unmask Me Anytime, BabyThere isn t anything I didn t like about this story It was really phenomenal Cooper tugged on all my heartstrings There is something to be said for someone who is a professional self flagellator I was pulling for him to pull his head out of his ass the whole time In some ways it was exhausting, but I was invested in his journey and that made it easier.Westley was a rock for Coop There was a lot going on A lot that had to be hard to deal with Cooper certainly didn t make it easy with his cactus routine, either Thankfully, Wes was no stranger to hard work or going after what he wanted even if it was hard and painful.I had to reread the blurb so I don t spoil anything too much and it s making this review hard going, I won t lie, because there s so much to say that I just can t So I ll leave it with a bullet point summary There are some great themes in this one repeated personal tragedies loosely tied to one MCs sexuality, a chance meeting paving the way for a second first chance, hurt comfort, personal growth realization, lost family ties, a small paranormal twist, murder, mystery, general mayhem and all of that and uniforms, too Mm hmm.You d think that that many complications in one book could turn into one hot mess, but no Jewel did an excellent job of twining everything in the plot into a cohesive and fluid story that pushed all my buttons I m going to keep it simple because I really can t do anything else Read this book Read it now It s that good.5 Hearts GR Stars Review crossposted atMore reviews by NeRdyWYRM can be found on Goodreads here.Images when present may be subject to copyright.An ARC copy of this title was provided for an honest review.

    I loved this book, it gripped me from the very start The twist no spoilers was great and so unexpected The connection between Coop and Wes is just hot and their relationship though not always smooth running allows you to see how great they are together Its fast paced and flows really well, the snark between the characters had me chuckling out loud I would definitely recommend this as a reader not to be missed.

    Ripping Off The Mask starts with action Coop is with his work partner, Silvio, when they are called to a bank robbery Others are on their way, or already there, chasing the suspects Silvio goes off by himself as he is faster than Coop That leads to them both being shot, only Silvio doesn t make it What he does do is to open up a hornet s nest within Coop, as he tries to come to terms with everything that has happened, and what he did.I liked Coop and Wes when they weren t talking In fact Ripping Off The Mask starts with action Coop is with his work partner, Silvio, when they are called to a bank robbery Others are on their way, or already there, chasing the suspects Silvio goes off by himself as he is faster than Coop That leads to them both being shot, only Silvio doesn t make it What he does do is to open up a hornet s nest within Coop, as he tries to come to terms with everything that has happened, and what he did.I liked Coop and Wes when they weren t talking In fact, I liked ALL the characters when they weren t talking The minute they opened their mouths, I lost interest The conversations and comments made came across as very stilted and forced, with lots of repetition between what they thought and what they said.Some of the situations in the book just didn t seem realistic and yes, I know this is fiction, but I still like to be able to pretend it s real There is a paranormal element to this book that you will either like or loathe Personally, I liked it, but that s just me The premise of this book is a good one, and has all the elements there that I normally like However, although I still liked the book, it didn t really get to me There are plenty of themes in this book, from the twins separated at birth, to ghosts angels, to the big bad with a rough childhood This is a long book, so there is plenty of time for everything to play out.I think if you can get to grips with the pacing and style of writing, then you will probably enjoy this book A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review I voluntarily read this book, and the comments here are my honest opinion MerissaArchaeolibrarian I Dig Good Books

    2.5 The premise was well thought of but the dialog and the actions Cooper took toward the end of the tale were quite off A PO would not allow for a perp to take him without a fight I was expecting for Coop to put his seatbelt on, drive like a racing demon, and smash the Mustang against a wall, pole, tree, etc on the way Even I know that s what one should do when kidnapped Silvio s actions at the end was another jaw dropping moment Otherwise, the story was enjoyable.


  10. Melissa Melissa says:

    Ugh This got a 5 star rating from Boy Meets Boy reviews so I snatched it up Nothing really worked for me in this book The dialogue was unrealistic The characters were flat and their actions unbelievable There was a strange paranormal aspect that didn t end up working for me either Overall very disappointing.
