Multi-Book Review: The Marshalls, The Lesson and Unrestricted Chains by Cynthia Blue


The Marshalls

4 Stars=Great Page Turner

Moselle, along brothers, Phoenix and Rocco and younger sister Skyla were taken in as juveniles by Eloise Marshall. Each one escaped bad familial situations, which by fate or circumstance Ms. Eloise was there to offer them a loving and stable home. Even though they were not blood relatives, the bond between the adopted siblings would prove to be stronger than any blood relatives they used to have. In adulthood the siblings face challenges that test their bonds while also dealing with the demons from their pasts.

This story is filled with action, sex and intrigue that keeps readers enthralled just enough but it leaves you wanting more from the characters and the storyline. I enjoyed the characters enough that I can see a sequel about the Marshall siblings. I recommend The Marshalls to others.

The Lesson

3 Stars=Okay Page Turner

This book was an entertaining read. There were three stories about individuals that sought to find satisfaction and didn’t care who they hurt to feel good. In the beginning, Professor Robin Terry expresses his disdain about his wife’s insecurities to his mentor Dr. Braxton during a casual lunch meeting. Dr. Braxton spends the lunch giving him examples of individuals he’s known that were in similar situation as his mentee Robin.

In the first story he talks about Hope and Cyrus. This couple endured many ups and down throughout their relationship due to the countless indiscretions and acts of infidelity by Cyrus. While Cyrus cared about no one but himself and continued to hurt the ever forgiving Hope until a series of events ends with a shocker.

As Dr. Braxton concludes the story about Cyrus and Nicole it has an effect on Robin and their lesson is supposed to teach him a lesson…but does it?

I enjoyed this book and wished it was longer than the 18 chapters I read. This couple’s story was the most intriguing and could have been expanded upon by the author. I felt there were a few grammatical errors and incomplete pieces within the storyline but it didn’t cause much of a distraction. This book was a good read and I give it three stars.

Unrestricted Chains

4 Stars=Great Page Turner

Appolonia has been married to Quinton for ten years and as unconventional as it was, both look forward to their future together. Over the years Appolonia has enjoyed her lifestyle due to Quinton’s successful brothel business. She also received special treatment as the only female correctional officer at the all male Ryder Penitentiary. By garnering the attention from her supervisor to forging a forbidden friendship with a prisoner named Dewayne, Appolonia is always going to reap any benefits she could.

There is also another side to Appolonia, which after befriending Dewayne her secrets come out, and she is forced to deal with her horrid past head on. Although their friendship crosses over into to forbidden territory Appolonia and Dewayne question themselves of what could have been if their situations were different. Readers will go through this rollercoaster ride with the characters which before you know it is over before it starts.

This book was a quick read yet it was chock filled with multiple, detailed and explicit encounters between the characters. I liked this book and for those that like erotic then this book is for you. This is the second book by Cynthia Blue that I have read and I see that she has the potential to go far in the book industry. I give this book four stars.
