Bestselling author Miriam Minger says: It’s been a wonderful experience to have all my novels published as ebooks, but the greatest thrill for me as a writer is when readers take the time to let me know they enjoyed my stories…

”I have read hundreds if not thousands of books in my lifetime and not once have I ever been moved to comment on one until now. This is without a doubt one of the best books I have ever read. I laughed. I cried. I remained at the edge of my seat devouring every single word you wove with this incredible story. I just wanted to let you know how deeply this story moved me and to thank you for creating it.”

Wow. This one left me speechless…and grateful. I had done my job, which is to make you feel like you’ve dropped feet first into a world that captures your imagination and emotions so vividly you might be living and breathing the story. And that’s one of the purest joys of reading, isn’t it? I know it is for me…and it is my hope to continue to write books that make you feel the passion, live and breathe the adventure, laugh and cry and touch your heart.

A brutal accident causes a mother to lose her son. Mad with grief, she asks her husband to do the unthinkable, kidnap the little boy who has her son's heart beating in his chest. Clare Carson's world becomes a plummeting rollercoaster in an instant. Her son has been kidnapped after a heart transplant and his abductors want her dead. They already killed the cop that was helping her but with his dying last words, he sends her to former Special Ops Jake Wyatt. He helps her figure out the truth and offers to help get her son back but little does she know that he has his own agenda that could destroy them both. Miriam Minger is an amazing storyteller and this book is an absolute GEM! It grabs you right from the start and whisks you away into an amazing thriller that has everything you could possibly want: Tragedy, heart pounding moments, shootouts, escapes, characters you love, characters you feel sympathy for and characters you absolutely hate. The only thing it didn't have was an explosion but one was talked about so I guess that counts. It will leave you thinking of the sheer power of it long after you've finished. Thank you to Miriam Minger and Walker Publishing for the review copy. It in no way influenced my review.

Ripped Apart was a gripping physiological thriller with a dash of romance. This tale had me riveted from page one. Minger¿s plot is filled with danger, suspense, lots of twists and a storyline you aren¿t sure to forget. The protagonist Clare Carson has a six year old son named Tyler. Tyler suffers from a heart defect, which will one day require surgery. When he stops breathing at the mall, he is rushed to the hospital. Meanwhile, a bus load of kids on their way to camp are hit by a semi-truck. Two little boys die on the bus that day. One boy¿s parents donate his organs; the other's realize there has been a mistake. The doctors are able to revive Tyler, and miraculously a heart is available. I really liked Clare. She is one tough cookie and no one messes with her little boy. The tale that unfolds involves the drug cartel, a sexy, rugged, ex-militia man named Jake, two mothers who undeniably love their sons and a man who lives by greed and control. The action and chase scenes were intense and genuine. I couldn¿t put this book down. The romance that develops between Jake and Clare is honest, heated and believable. I highly recommend Ripped Apart to fans of psychological thrillers and romance. This novel is currently available in eBook format. I want to thank the BookRooster team for providing this ARC in exchange for my unbiased review.
