Folsom before but thought this would also be a great way to try out a new author and hopefully add a whole new bunch of books to my to read mountain Unfortunately although I think the Phoenix Code series has a lot of potential it didn t quite live up to my admittedly high expectations, I didn t hate the book but there were things about both stories that had me ready to throw my kindle across the room I think both stories would have probably worked better for me if they were full length novels rather than novellas, that way we could have had a littledepth and build up to each of the relationships and I think that could have completely erased most of my issues.The first story is Cut by Lara Adrian, it introduces us to College Professor, and undercover member of Phoenix a top secret paranormal group working for the CIA, Ethan and his long term girlfriend Tori The couple have been dating for a year and are practically living together when Ethan receives an emergency alert telling him that Phoenix has been compromised and he must run for his life Ethan walks out on Tori without a word leaving her completely devastated, she spends months searching for him, even checking with hospitals because she s worried something dreadful happened to him Skip forward three years and their paths cross by accident when Ethan is in the middle of trying to escape from an assassin The assassin sees him with Tori and now her life is in danger unless Ethan can protect her I think I could have really liked Ethan if he d shownremorse for breaking Tori s heart I understood why he d had to leave and to a point I even understood why he didn t want to tell her what was going on because he didn t want to put her in danger, however I needed to seegrovelling for forgiveness on his part I lost all respect for Tori when she forgave him pretty much within 10 minutes of him walking back into her life She s spent three years miserable because of him and she forgives him so quickly It just wasn t believable to me Especially when she finds out that he had been lying to her and keeping secrets throughout the whole of their relationship I think if they d takentime to get to know each other again and Ethan had madeof a show of apologising I would probably have been able to get on board with their relationship but the novella happened too quickly and it dulled my enjoyment of the story.Run by Tina Folsom started off better, the hero Scott has precognitive abilities and he has a vision showing him the murders of a school bus full of innocent children He knows that by helping them he risks exposing himself to the enemies who are trying to kill him but he couldn t live with himself if he didn t at least try to save them Phoebe is a reporter who happens to be on the bus and she is rescued by Scott and even though Scott left the scene without giving anyone his contact details when her boss wants a story on the reluctant hero of the hour Phoebe becomes determined to track him down Scott and Phoebe have great chemistry and I could get on board with the two of them falling in lust very quickly but it didn t make much sense that Phoebe would be so willing to drop everything in her life to go on the run with him Their relationship moves from lust to love far too quickly and again I struggled to believe the connection between them My other main issue with this couple although this could be said for Ethan and Tori too was the fact that they are running for their lives from an unknown but powerful enemy who is trying to kill them yet they re willing to skip the condom when they jump in bed together Not because Phoebe was on any other birth control but because Scott has a vision of them with children in their future I m sorry but it s not a good idea to risk making a baby with a guy you ve known for 2 whole days and it s evenridiculous that both couples seem willing to bring children into a mess where they have assassins chasing them Who is going to babysit when they re off fighting for their lives I think that because Lara Adrian is one of my favourite authors I go into her books with incredibly high expectations and that s probably part of the reason for my disappointment with Cut and Run I probably over thought some of the issues with these stories but when one thing about a book really annoys me I do tend to find that other smaller things bug methan usual I didn t hate this book and I do think the series has a lot of potential I love the idea of the Phoenix group, I m intrigued by the vision that Scott and Ethan seem to share and I m very curious to see how they manage to track down the rest of the team I think the overreaching plot is going to be a really interesting one and I m hoping that the issues I had with these two stories won t carry over into the next book I am definitely planning on buying Hide and Seek when it releases next year and I m hopeful that the series will just get stronger with every book A group of men with the gift of premonition are up against an unknown threat This brand new series is called the Phoenix Code and is written by Lara Adrian and Tina Folsom in two novellas that are rife with action, suspense and emotion.As a longtime fan of Adrian, I knew that I wanted to read this new series But this style of book is nice because you also get to try other authors as well In this case, Folsom was a new to me author and I discovered that I really enjoyed her writing style.C A group of men with the gift of premonition are up against an unknown threat This brand new series is called the Phoenix

involving Ethan Jones and Tori Conners Ethan has found a happy place with Tori in his life, but when a signal comes in telling him that he must drop everything and run, he does so, leaving Tori to wonder what went wrong in their relationship.Years later when Ethan is being chased down by a killer, he meets Tori again and it puts her in grave danger now that the killer knows her identity Fast paced with a killer amount of emotion, Adrian definitely shows that she is able to conquer any genre she writes in.Tina Folsom s story is just as riveting and suspenseful, reminding me of the classic Superman tale Scott Thompson is a mechanic turned reluctant hero when he gets a vision of a school bus packed full of children are trapped on some train tracks with a train speeding towards them If he doesn t act, they will all die, so Scott does the impossible saving all the kids as well as Phoebe Chadwick, who is actually a journalist standing in for a teacher Phoebe has found her biggest story yet and she never would ve believed that she would be in the middle of it but it makes for a very fun story.I have to give both stories a thumbs up They were well written, perfectly placed and provided a couple hours of entertainment when I needed it most I ll definitely be looking forward to the rest of the series ARC provided by author Don t want to miss any of our posts Subscribe to our
