My Rating: 4.5 of 5 Stars

B.A.D. Boys. The B.A.D. boys are trapped in an elevator. Unfiltered personalities come out to the fore. The behaviors are stress induced due to claustrophobia or just feeling plain scared. Of course, when the stress levels increase from 10 to 100 in a few seconds flat, there are only so many ways one can react. Well, B.A. and D. (yes, they stand for Brad, Aiden and Danny) realize either they go for it, or maybe die before enjoying life. What a way to go!

Me, Callum, & Dingoman is a paranormal with a twist. It involves, just as the title implies, three individuals but in the body of only two individuals. One of these, the third in the mix, is someone whose persona is quite unique and super. How handles this alter ego, now that is something to read about.

Knowing How He Feels About You is about three cheerleaders. They are friends first and foremost so enjoy the good life as only college students can. That is, until something breaks their humdrum flying and catching and feelings kept secret reveal themselves. 

Chimera. Now, this is a strange tale. Is it Dissociative Identity Disorder, is it memories long thought forgotten resurfacing, or is it simply a matter of family keeping secrets from a child who survives? These are the questions that leave the reader guessing until the end. If you know where to spot the clues, then you will get the answer on the first go. If you glance around and come back, you’ll get lost in the maze of the uncharted human brain. Interesting. Compelling. Weirdly strange. Keeps you questioning until the end.

Life By Even Numbers. Oooh, what will you do when the eye is caught, the interest piqued and the unexpected love blooms. Is it cheeting? Is it sharing? Is it understanding one’s partner’s needs? When a third gets in the middle of a twosome, will it go result to splitsville or become a threesome? Questions rise and can leave the reader reeling. The answer, now that journey is strangely compelling. What would you do?

Love in 1975. What would you do, again, if your best friend and lover is bi and falls for a third who happens to be a woman? It is 1975 and things taboo were frowned and ostracized. How the three manage the relationship that seems one sided is an interesting look into throuples. Who is who and what is what?

The Proposal. One plus one equals two. Two plus one is not necessarily going to be three. If two ask one to join, will the third add or subtract? The process is easy to reach, the resulting answer, now that is interesting to read!

Chance Encounters. Oooh, this one is naughty and involves toys to the max that can send one to giggledome or bleaching their eyes and brain. Thing is, playing is different when it’s for keeps.
Exploring Heaven as a doggy knows it. Rottweilers are incredible creatures. This is a paranormal shifter story so the dogs with a personality gets kind of strangely weird and loyal, especially when the mate is found but the bond with the human refuses to lay down. Oooh, if only we can tell love to sit and stay.

Three is not a crowd when arranged and understood the right way. Written by the incredibly imaginative authors of Wayward Ink, this is entertainingly unique, strange, and somehow impossible to put down.
