BOOK CLUB THURSDAY-WTF MOMENTS



WELCOME BOOK LOVERS

Thanks for stopping by this week for our Book Club Thursday (BCT). Each Thursday, myself, Ann and Karen (my two best book lover friends) blog about something book related. To learn more about all of us and BCT, please take a moment to visit the Page at the top of my blog.

This Thursday is a themed chat/blog that was chosen by me:

WTF MOMENTS

You know what I mean. Those times when everything is going along just fine in the book and then SUDDENLY...

Yeah.

For whatever reason, you've just had a WTF moment. Now don't get me wrong; they aren't always bad- at least not in my book(like that pun there LOL).

I'm talking about both the good and bad. 

The bad meaning:

You're so...angry? Flabbergasted? Pissed off? -at either the character(s) or situation. 

In the following example the heroine, for most the book made me want to hurl my e-reader and for the record I did shout WTF numerous times(and not in a happy way -see below).





Heartthrob star quarterback Tyson Palmer has it all: a million-dollar arm, a winning season and the promise of a Superbowl ring. But more importantly, football’s biggest star is the ultimate comeback kid. After an addiction to painkillers nearly derailed his career, Tyson got sober and went from zero to hero in the eyes of the public.

But one person remains unconvinced: Dani Carr, a sports commentator with high ratings and following of her own.
Dani can’t forgive Tyson’s transgressions or forget a single passionate night with him back in college. To make things worse, Tyson doesn’t realize that the bombshell with huge ratings is the cute co-ed whose heart he once broke.
But can a sports journalist trying to claw her way to the top and a quarterback who knows all about rock bottom make it to the Super Bowl without destroying each other? And what will happen when Tyson—riding high now that he’s revived his career—realizes he needs to make an even more important comeback with Dani? Can he use his million-dollar moves to get past her defenses—or will she sideline him for good?







So now you might be thinking how can a WTF moment be good?

Well, I'm talking about moments when the author has shocked you, or had you on the edge of your seat going OMG OMG OMG(as you shake the your book(just like I did) in a WTF just happened sort of way- but only because the moment was just that damn good when you think about it.

It's rare that I encounter any good WTF moments because, honestly I'm just that surprised anymore by anything.

However these two authors...yeah...





Stranded with a murderer…  

Rachel de Luca’s uncanny sense of perception is the key to her success as a self-help celebrity. Even before she regained her sight, she had a gift for seeing people’s most carefully hidden secrets. But the secret she shares with Detective Mason Brown is one she has promised to keep. As for Mason, he sees Rachel more clearly than she’d like to admit. 
After a single night of adrenaline-fueled passion, they have agreed to keep their distance—until a string of murders brings them together again. Mason thinks that he can protect everyone he loves, including Rachel, by taking them to a winter hideaway, but danger follows them up the mountain. 
As guests disappear from the snowbound resort, the race to find the murderer intensifies. Rachel knows she’s a target. Will acknowledging her feelings for Mason destroy her—or save them both and stop a killer?











The secret is, vampires are real and I am one.

The secret is, I’m stealing from you what is most truly yours and I’m not sorry...
 
New York City in 1978 is a dirty, dangerous place to live. And die. Joey Peacock knows this as well as anybody—he has spent the last forty years as an adolescent vampire, perfecting the routine he now enjoys: womanizing in punk clubs and discotheques, feeding by night, and sleeping by day with others of his kind in the macabre labyrinth under the city’s sidewalks.
 
The subways are his playground and his highway, shuttling him throughout Manhattan to bleed the unsuspecting in the Sheep Meadow of Central Park or in the backseats of Checker cabs, or even those in their own apartments who are too hypnotized by sitcoms to notice him opening their windows. It’s almost too easy.
 
Until one night he sees them hunting on his beloved subway. The children with the merry eyes. Vampires, like him…or not like him. Whatever they are, whatever their appearance means, the undead in the tunnels of Manhattan are not as safe as they once were.
 
And neither are the rest of us.






Thanks for stopping by this week. Don't forget to check out what Ann and Karen had to say by visiting their blogs. 

I'd love to hear from you about any WTF Moments that you've had while reading.
