About the Book:
“I’m going to offer you a choice.”
Controversial satellite radio talk show host, Jordan Briggs, has clawed her way to the top of the broadcast world. She doesn’t hold back, doesn’t spare feelings, and has no trouble sharing what’s on her mind. Her rigorous pursuit of success has come at a price, though. Her marriage is in ruins, she hasn’t spoken to her mother in years, and she’s distanced herself from all those close to her. If not for her young daughter, Charlotte, her personal life would be in complete shambles. When a subdued man calls into the show and asks to play a game, she sees it as nothing more than a way to kick-start the morning, breathe life into the beginnings of drive-time for her listeners. Against her producer’s advice, she agrees, and unwittingly opens a door to the past. Live on the air with an audience of millions, what starts out as a game quickly turns deadly—events long thought buried resurface and Jordan Briggs is forced to reconcile with one simple fact—All decisions have consequences.

My Review:
When I read the blurb of this book it gave me vibes of this:

But it turned out to be more like this:

And that was okay with me because this book kept me turning pages, fast. I admit it was way over the top with explosions going off every minute and lots of things were just not possible, but this was a fun read and I enjoyed the ride. The funny thing is this usually wouldn't be my thing...I have not seen the Die Hard movies  (this book has been compared to those flicks) and have no intention of doing so...BUT I was really entertained by this book.

J.D. Barker has a pretty amazing imagination and he managed to keep the adventure in this story fresh. I loved how I couldn't figure out where the story was going and how intense the plot was. The chapters were short and I think that helped the readability factor and kept the suspense ramped up. All in all a decent book I would recommend to adrenaline junkies and thriller lovers alike.

Thank you NetGalley, J.D. Barker, Hampton Creek Press and Independent Book Publishers Association (IBPA) for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
