Line BlurbMatthew Oliver Cannon was a rich, handsome man who had a wild and wicked sense of humor and an insatiable appetite for the fairer sex. Matthew loved women so much he didn’t want to settle for just one; not until he’d gotten his fair share of bedding ‘his fair share’ as well as removing the pain of a family member’s past indiscretion out of his system. If ever…
“Play the field, I say. No ties, no strings. Just… go home and enjoy the solitude.”
“You’ll lose that solitude when you have kids,” his brother, Marcus, warned.
“Already worked that out, if I ever decide to have them, that is,” Matthew smirked. “They’ll live with their mother. I won’t. No woman’s ever trapping me. I’ll… knock her up and go home. ABC, 123.”
It was the perfect arrangement, he resolved. Then he met HER. Madison King, the woman who stopped his breathing just by walking in the room. And then he lost her and met another woman who sort of did the same thing… but not quite.
Read Matthew’s POV of what kept him and Madison from being together for years and how he will always regret the time they spent apart.

Mmm….. Matthew Oliver Cannon, can’t get enough!!!!

The M Series: Matthew which is book five of this series. This book covers Matthew Cannon’s story, we learned in the previous book The M Series: Madison that Matthew met and fell hard for Madison as did she for him, but what happened during those years that Madison struggled without Matthew.

Matthew was the one Cannon brother that everyone thought would be a bachelor and would never find “the one”. Then Madison King walked into his life and turned everything upside down. She was incredibly beautiful, smart and his match in every way. She is the one woman he couldn’t get off his mind no matter what.

Follow Matthew as he lets Madison slip through his fingers and into the arms of another man. Matthew has a past and insecurities that he tries to hide. In this book, we see a side of Matthew that we don’t expect. We follow how he felt losing the only woman that truly touched his heart to family tragedies that he is right in the middle of.

This book touched me in so many ways. In the previous books, we saw a different side of Matthew and personally, I loved seeing into his mind and how meeting Madison the first time affected him. We see this book through his Point of View and I loved every moment of this book until I got to the end of it.

Ryanne Anthony left me wanting more Matthew Cannon. I cannot wait until the next book in the series comes out so that I can see more of him. I love how reading this book felt like catching up with an old friend. I felt like I was right next to Matthew through his journey of heartbreak, loss, turmoil, lies, and deceit. I don’t know if we truly know all of what makes Matthew tick but we learn what makes his heartbeat.

Another hit for Ms. Anthony. This book took me to places that I loved and makes me want to go back as soon as I can. You will not be disappointed in this book. So sit down with the sexy Matthew Cannon and see the world through his eyes, trust me you won’t regret it as he definitely raises the temperature in any room.

I give this book 10+++++++++++ stars and I am more in love with the writing style of Ryanne Anthony than ever before.

“Life & Society as we know it can take a twisted terrible path” – The Between Times (Jewell in the Dark, Volume II) by Marta Moran Bishop

Marta jewell in the dark 10-22-18

Line Blurb
In the days when the corporations rule the world. The middle class is gone, and the cities are divided into upper and lower towns.
The upper towns are domed to protect the rich from the foul air that permeates the world, from the waste that fills the air, and fumes that blacken the sky from the smokestacks of the factories. The water is heavily rationed in the lower towns and barely drinkable, so fouled by the chemicals that fill the rivers and springs.
While in the upper town the water is purified even in the fountains and swimming pools that grace the world of the high and mighty. The shops, boutiques, restaurants, and museums are crowded in the upper town, music can be heard everywhere, and the flowers grow tall and beautiful.
While the people of the lower towns work six days a week, in sixteen to eighteen-hour shifts. There one day off is Sunday, it is then that the men and young boys must be found in the church, while the women and girls are kept at home, for they are considered to be beasts for breeding and less important than the animals that grace the zoos of the upper towns. Food is scarce in the lower town, and the only market is the company store.
The world has stepped back into the dark ages. Nearly all hope is gone to those not born into wealth and only the prophecy that one day a young woman will come who can control the magic of the between times keeps the poor going. It is said she will be able to pull on the energy of all those who are of like mind, wrap that energy together and send it into the world to remake it.
Marta Moran Bishop takes the reader through a possible future. Unlike Orwell’s, Animal Farm and 1984, or Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, The Between Times is not based on the government ‘Big Brother,’ but rather it is written using a recent ruling by the Supreme Court that says corporations are people. In The Between Times, we are shown the possibility of a world where the poor are considered to be a beast of burden, good only for the labor they can produce or the war they can fight, to enable the war profiteers to make more money.
Poor women are used for breeding and considered to be the property of men and the corporation. There is no way for the uneducated and isolated poor, move up the latter, for the middle class is gone.
In this short novel, The United States had taken a social, economic, and cultural step backward, to a time when our world consisted of lords and serfs. The only thing that keeps those who are not in the ruling class of the elite, going is the belief in a prophecy, that one day a girl will be born who will have the ability to unite all kindred spirits past, present, and future, to bring change to the world.
A truly amazingly imaginative book.

Life & Society as we know it can take a twisted terrible path

Marta Moran Bishop has penned a fascinating what-if dystopian sequence of two novels available as book one and two or as a boxed set. I was fortunate to get the boxed set from Audible.com and listen to together with my family in lockdown to Darkness Descends (the prequel) and The Between Times (the sequel). I ‘ll not rehash the details of the story as this is a review and not a report. The intensity and brutality of the people in power in these novels, the sheer level of cruelty has Bishop vying with serial killer novelists and TV shows like Criminal Minds and CSI. Bishop sets the stage well, uses props masterfully, and the story unfolds to the ear like a Broadway rendition of 1984 or Fahrenheit 451 with a goodly dose of Brave New World. Still, while the dark side of the power brokers is genuinely executed and in places hard to stomach due to the attention to detail and the interplay of dialogue and character, there is the bright hope of Jewell herself, like a shining beacon on the lost hill. This is an American dystopia played out in Chicago, and the author’s obvious knowledge of the city struck me hard as I grew up in Chicago and have used the same city for many of my own writings. The novel here reminded me of just how long people have been declaring the men and women made the richest BY Chicago and Chicagoans have done badly in supporting the most vulnerable among us. In 1893 a visiting Englishman, a reporter who died on the Titanic, William Stead wrote of this crisis of Chicago in great detail in his book entitled If Christ Came to Chicago. And so, yes Bishops two titles in a boxed set on audible (ebook as well) moved me to deep thought about the crisis of Chicago in 1893 and today in 2020 with the pandemic that has hit the poorest and oldest among us the hardest, and yet we must always maintain hope and light.

Nate may already be a father, and if so, his child is nearing thirty and has no idea who he is to them, thanks to the child’s mother who cryptically told Nate of their existence ten years after her sexual encounter with him.
But was she lying to him? Nate needed answers, and Dr. Fields was determined to lead him someone who could do so, flawlessly.

In Book Two of THE BETWEEN TIMES author, Marta Moran Bishop shows the power of standing together

Author Marta Moran Bishop is someone I have followed for quite some time, her books have a way of not just tugging at your heart but getting you to think as well. In Book Two of THE BETWEEN TIMES, we see the results of people being divided, pitted against one another by greed and personal agendas—-and we see individuals like Jewell willing to risk it all to make a difference.

The book takes us into the darkness of the world for sure, showing us how things could take an even worse turn, but we are reminded that each of us has the ability to stand up for what we know to be right—and we are not alone. Jewell realized that herself, and though it can be scary the alternative is even worse.

Full of messages that do the reader well to consider when it comes to the choices we make and the impact we’re having on the place we call home, THE BETWEEN TIMES: The Divide is our call to unite before it’s too late.

Due to past events, two people, who shouldn’t have known one another’s names conceive a baby, after falling in love at first sight. Most are not willing to accept this union. Despite the blessings of the one person who should’ve forbidden this child’s father joining the family, the heartbroken expectant mother severs the relationship, believing she is the only one who will suffer for it, but doing so will keep her family together. Will she regret choosing her father over her child’s? She tries to believe everything will work out in the long run; that after the ending of her relationship, this family will not suffer more than what they have.
The father, equally heartbroken, has the support of his own tight-knit family, still loving the woman he instantly fell for and wishes everything would come together soon after their son is born. That’s if his ex-girlfriend doesn’t sever them forever.
