Book ReviewDisclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of 1986 by Morgan Parker from NetGalley for the purpose of an honest review.


I have been a *fangirl* of Morgan Parker’s since I read the book Textual Encounters. I have followed his writing diligently. To say that 1986 was a real surprise is an understatement! I read the blurb for the book and swallowed very hard at the thought that this wasn’t going to be the type of love story I was used to. I had mixed emotions. I wanted to read 1986 but I was afraid that I wouldn’t like it, then what would I be forced to write?


Was I surprised by my reaction to 1986? Absolutely. I found myself lost in the pages very quickly and pleasantly surprised. Reading 1986 let me transport myself back to the days prior to the disaster portrayed by Parker. The fictional account is so incredibly real at times that it was difficult to remember I wasn’t reliving the event.


I encourage you to give it a try, and honest, read from cover to cover try. Find yourself amazed. Stop. Read the ending once again, and remember the truth written within these pages, even though Mr. Parker hid it within a story pulled from his superlative mind.


I highly recommend 1986 by Morgan Parker and give it five explosive cups of Room With Books coffee.

Hearth Cover Reveal

Title: Hearth ( A Dark Series)
Author: Morgan Parker featuring Rouge Poetry
Cover Artist: By Hang Le
Release Date: March 1st 2015
Genre: Mystery/Thriller

 

 


 

 He used to sing to her with a voice that burned like scotch and soothed like Johnny Cash.

Until she got older.

And died.

Now, nineteen months after identifying his daughter’s remains, Dave Richmond discovers the only clue into her mysterious disappearance and murder.

A USB flash drive with three letters on it – “rog” – filled with the most beautiful poetry he has ever read.

But the poetry is special. It’s haunted.

With love.

Hope.

And death.

  


 

As the author of the best-selling mystery romance, Surviving Goodbye, Morgan Parker has written several novels under this pen name. In 2012 and 2013, when he self-published Textual Encounters and Textual Encounters: 2, respectively, he was absolutely floored that anyone would want to read his stories. So he wrote non friction, an unconventional love story. That love story earned Mr. Parker a tremendous amount of attention and at the insistence of his readers, he followed it with Hope (a novella) and Sick Day. All three of those stories have spent time on Amazon best-seller lists. Currently, he is preparing Violets & Violence for publication in late-2014.

When not writing, Morgan likes to spend time gathering writing material from his two young children, reading and napping where he discovered the Type II Sleep State, which is the topic for his 2015 release, Anna Graham.

Textual Encounters 1 & 2 Cover Makeovers

 

final Banner TE

Author:  Morgan Parker

Genre: Contemporary (Romance)

Cover Design:  Helen Williams

TE Final Single

Synopsis:

Katie discovers an unlocked iPhone in the back seat of a taxi. But instead of turning it in to the driver as lost, she decides to keep it for herself.

Outside of the usual clutter you would expect to find on a smartphone, what captures Katie’s interest is the single conversation she finds on the phone’s secure text messaging service, a three-month dialogue between a woman with an uncertain past named Christine and a single, eligible man named Jake.

From Strangers to Soulmates in 90 Days

What starts out as a message intended for someone else ends up being the beginning of a relationship more powerful than anything Christine or Jake have ever experienced.

But nothing ever turns out to be as good as it initially seems and their histories slowly reveal details and past lovers that threaten to derail their humble quest for love.

Forgotten In The Back Seat of a New York City Taxi

Can Christine and Jake overcome the seemingly insurmountable obstacles, doubts and secrets that endanger their love?

If so, why would such a relationship get forgotten in the back seat of a New York City taxi?

Presented in a Format Unlike Any Other You Will Find

Follow Katie as she reads through the 3 months of conversations that form The Christine + Jake Affair and provide the foundation for the Textual Encounters Trilogy.

 Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00072]

Synopsis:

Having found a white iPhone in the back of a New York City cab, Katie orchestrates a “chance” meeting with Jake, the man of her dreams. Knowing more than she lets on, Katie develops a relationship with Jake that ultimately gets captured in text form. And those texts are passed along to the woman that just lost Jake’s baby.

As the follow up to Textual Encounters, Textual Encounters: 2 follows Jake’s second attempt at finding love… this time with a more manipulative younger woman who will stop at nothing to get what she wants

Excerpt:

I surrendered to her, felt her body press against me—first her thighs against mine, then her hips, belly, and finally her chest, the feel of her breasts against me and finally, those lips. Veronica’s lips were full, moist, and as soft as cotton infused with a fuel that had me wanting her, all of her.

Review:

I spent an afternoon reading Surviving Goodbye by Morgan Parker. It is a novel that is very captivating and hard to set aside once picked up.

I’ve run a full range of emotions right along with Elliot and Lena. I’ve engrossed myself in their lives. I’ve cried for their losses, felt enraged and embittered by their betrayals, and prayed for the quintessential “happily-ever-after” ending. I find myself emotionally drained.

And then it was over. The last page was turned and left me aching for more. I have never picked up a book by Morgan that didn’t leave me feeling somehow bereft that the story didn’t continue.

I truly with I had more eloquent words to express the way I feel about Surviving Goodbye. I guess that is the reason Morgan is a best-selling author and I am a reviewer! Please don’t misinterpret this as self-denigration. I love what I do and I can’t imagine the toil that every writer must put into their novels. I shall be hunting through my Thesaurus for those perfect terms that describe how I feel inside when I read a novel such as this!

I highly recommend this unrivaled novel, Surviving Goodbye, by Morgan Parker. I can’t imagine anyone being disappointed.

Excerpt:

By the time you read this, I’ll be dead. I hope I had the chance to tell you this myself, but in the event that I couldn’t, I want you to know that from the moment we met, I loved you. So, so, so much. And these past few months dealing with the reality of my mortality have allowed me to reach into the depths of that love and see that what is sweet on one hand, is devastatingly sad on the other: You loved me with the depth and truth that most people never know. And because of that (here’s the devastating part), I know you won’t let go, even once I’m gone. It’s sweet to know that I owned your heart, body and soul for all of these years, but it crushes me that you will bury these things with my body and not only deprive yourself of life, of enjoying and sharing it with someone else but from love altogether… and that is the tragedy here. You deserve to live, breathe, taste, and love again. Elliot, that is what Love is, and that is what I want for you once I’m gone.
