HAPPY THURSDAY ALL no babbling today just going to get right to it Today I am reviewing THE TIN MAN by Nina Mason

The last thing Alex Buchanan, the editor-in-chief of a formidable news site, expects as he looks around the newsroom at the bodies of his editors, is that he’ll soon be teaming up with The Ball Buster to solve the crime and stay alive. Well, maybe not the last thing. The last thing he expects is to fall for her or any other woman. Because he’s The Tin Man–a suit of armor without a heart.

Or so he believes…

The Ball Buster is his private nickname for Thea Hamilton, a smart, gutsy, and insecure investigative reporter for The New York News, America’s newspaper of record. They went out once years ago–an unmitigated disaster during which she jumped all over his case about smoking.

When events force them together, they embark on an emotion-charged, high-octane quest for the truth, ending up in bed, but also in the clutches of a sociopathic corporate raider. “Zeus” is obsessed with James Bond and owns a hardcore S & M club in an old fallout shelter. Is he the killer? And, if so, what’s his motive? What he hopes to gain by torturing the journalists is clearer: the proof they’ve uncovered of a corporate takeover scheme that threatens the future of democracy. And he’ll stop at nothing to get it.

  Ok if you know me or are like me  and you like a book full of intrigue, mystery, mass conspiracy an of course romance. This is the book for you.
 This is a suspenseful thriller that will take you all over the place. The way things play out in the story you can actually see happening right now in the States. It is kind a eerie how the country is so far away from what the fore fathers thought, The main characters are both reporters who are fighting for the truth. Alex Buchanan, is a weather beaten journalist that is sick and tired of watching the media bending to the pressure from the higher ups and special interest groups. Watering down the news for the public. He has his own on line newspaper. Which is going great guns but he does have a few problems to go along with his fame. The poor man has named himself the Tin Man. because he can't love . There is also a smoking and drinking problem. But after what the poor man went through and no I am not going to tell you what he went through if you want to know that , you have to read the book. Trust me ladies you will be swooning for this sexy Scotsman, you want to hug him and kiss him also you want to just take care of him. Things get even worse for him when he comes back and finds his staff murdered and a gun toting mad man after him. Enter Thea Hamilton an investigative reporter, after her own story. She is on the hunt for her grandfather. Alex runs into her as she is sent to cover the story of the shooting.  See Alex and Thea had a brief encounter a few years back. She yelled at him about his smoking and walked away. Alex calls her the ball buster and Thea calls him the one that got away. They are thrown in together as they hunt for Thea's grandfather and figure out who is trying to kill them. They are running from the gunmen and trying to do get to the bottom of everything .
   HOLY HELL is all I can say about this book. You are taken on an adrenaline fueled roller coaster ride. It is a faced paced  and has such good characters that you will not want to put down. The way Nina writes is classic thriller with this book. The book is action packed and flows so well . What I also like about this book, the characters are over the age of 22 and you are like this is so cool . A couple that are older but still can kick ass and take notes. Which I like heehhehehehee
  This book is also a real eye opener on how the media has gone either right or left . The way that cooperate has taken over the media. Trust me you will watching your news just a little differently after reading this book. This book is not for the faint of heart either , there are some pretty intense scenes especially where Thea is being tortured, that man Zeus gives me the creeps. Lets just say I will never look a power drill the same way again. Yes you have to read the book to find out about that .
  For a book of fiction I will say Nina has hit on some real life issues that are going on right now in the world. I applaud her for taking that in such a way that will make you think. She also does a lot to get the word out for PTSD and the daily struggles that the people go through.
 I am going to tell you right now, you need to read this book it is full of intrigue and it will make you think. I will rate it up there with books from other authors like Brad Metzler and Dan Brown. Now come check it out . I know you will not be disappointed. Also be prepared for a book hangover because once you start you will not stop reading until you turn the last page
