Pushing Brilliance (Kyle Achilles #1) Reviews
This book started out well enough and I appreciate the authors attempt to create a complex plot.

The main character in this book reminds me of Ron Burgundy when he said, "I don't know how to put this... but I'm kind of a big deal." Cue eye roll.

The only thing way of getting my nails hopes hair cut
The wonly best fact I can have it on my the first place time to get the chance to win the league in is a great
Brilliant story - no pun intended. The plot, the characters, the pace and rhythm of the story made excellent reading and it was thoroughly entertaining
Given the number of high ratings I expected more. That's on me for the expectations.
Just another thriller with someone being pursued and not knowing why.
What next is the question! The writer poses with such intelligence...... Just enough romance to keep it spicy...Love the ride
