This was a hilarious story about poor Gomez Porter. Nothing ever seemed to work out how Gomez wanted it. Even his name was chosen on a whim when his parents simply could not agree on any one certain name.

Gomez becomes a test subject in a drug trial and falls in love with the assistant who also in turn falls in love with him but then one of the test subjects turn up dead and another missing and Gomez afraid he may be next hides out and tries to piece together just what is going on.

A quick and totally laugh out loud book!

Oh my Gosh if you were a fan of 80's rock and metal bands then this is a must have book for you! It took me back in time to days gone by of all my favorite rocker bands, David Lee Roth and Jon Bon Jovi and wow many many more. It highlights each band separately and gives insight into their past and present. An awesome memerabilia piece to have!

Samantha Wells has lived through more hell in her short life than most. At the age of eight her serene life was turned upside down. Her parents were brutally murdered and Sam barely escaped with her life. But she didn't do it alone - a soft calm voice led her to safety, the voice of her spirit guide. Disguised by a black mask and the handle Black Smoke, with the help of her spirit guide Sam rescues those unfortunate people who find themselves in the hands of humanity's worst. Life is good until Sam is called on to assist a small covert military team in recovering a kidnapped scientist in Afghanistan. Lt. Mark Lowe (Kong) is less than thrilled to be placing his team's lives in the hands of a woman, much less one as beautiful and sexy as Sam. He quickly learns there is more to this woman than meets the eye. She not only infiltrates enemy bases - she's infiltrated his heart. Kong retreats to safer ground, leaving Sam heartbroken. Distant and unwilling to listen to anyone, Sam delves headfirst into a hell that only Kong can pull her from.

My Review: With a sprinkling of the paranormal and a strong kick ass heroine Black Smoke was an explosive read! Not an easy book to put down it never wavered on plot and had an incredible set of characters. Leaves you yearning for more!
