Tension by R.L. Griffin

This tour is brought to you by InkSlinger PR! 

I think this cover may be one of my favorite covers ever!!!

This book is intended for mature audiences due to strong language and sexual content.

The Stella who emerges from the rubble of the bombing in Montana is a woman full of conflict. She knows she should be grateful that she lived when others didn't, but after waking in the hospital as a celebrity, complete with a new moniker, she's bitter and distrustful, questioning everything in her life. She's unsure of her friends, her new boyfriend, and her job. In addition, a face from the past reappears and threatens to take the one good thing in her life.

Stella attempts to deal with the new scrutiny of her life with her usual sense of humor, but she's filled with a new emotion that she tries desperately to hide: HATE. Her recovery is hastened by her determination to find the man who turned her into a walking scar. She's going to kill him; she needs to kill him.

Stella isn't alone. She has her close friends and her dog, Cooper. Will their support be enough to help Stella accomplish her plan, or will this endeavor be her undoing?

My Review
When I first received this book I was excited to read it. I jumped right in and was immediately confused. Thinking it was the mood I was in, I put it aside and decided to come back to it later. Well, that didn't help. So I jumped on GoodReads to do some research. And right there in plain English--(By A Thread #2). It was a sequel, how did I miss that? So I visited Amazon, found the first book and one-clicked that sucker.

After reading By A Thread, the first book, it all started making sense! By the end of the first book I was completely taken in by the characters. This book starts with Stella in the hospital. She is all sorts of messed, physically and emotionally. And with good reason. George of course is there, her knight in shining armor. Her parents are there as well, driving her crazy. She has to rely on everyone to do the simplest things like going to the bathroom, which doesn't sit well with her. Not only does she have to deal with being shot, but the media is digging into her life and bringing every aspect of her life to the public. Stella is very angry. Her mind is set on one thing....revenge.

This book ends with one heck of a cliffhanger! But there's a little note from the author at the end apologizing for the cliffhanger and she even gives us links where we can cuss her out! How nice of her. Maybe I'll put those links to good use! :)

I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest opinion.
