Pick of the Day

The Bad Mothers' Book Club by Keris Stainton

⭐⭐⭐⭐ This book is more chicklit than lesfic but is thoroughly enjoyable. It starts in the dreaded gate-moms world. Yeah, that is...

Razor Wire by Lauren Gallagher


Intense and gritty this book is not particularly an easy read but it is gripping. It’s been republished after five years and is still a very strong story with issues issues that remain current.

Okinawa is a Naval station with just three women in the company, MA3 Kim Lockhoff, MA2 Reese Marion and another young lady barely out of high school. Kim is a quintessential party girl, who Reese believes is the type responsible for the poor image of women in uniform. When Kim is suspected to be pregnant, as the only other woman with enough experience, Reese is asked to reach out to and give support to Kim. Reese approaches Kim reluctantly with her prejudices firmly in place. But she discovers Kim to be quite contrary to everything she had projected.

Both the MCs are strong and vulnerable. They are tough yet scared. They are angry yet helpless. They are painted into a corner but fight. While Reese’s past is tragic, the immediacy of Kim’s situation makes her situation more urgent and compelling.

The book unforgivingly spells out male attitude towards women and the reality of women’s struggles to be safe – not only in the Navy, but everywhere.

This one is big time recommended.

Warning: Rape is the main theme of this book.
