    One thought on “Lust, Money & Murder”

    1. You know when you watch those TV dramas, the ones that are on three or four nights in a week, or maybe once a week for a month, and you really get into it, and when it finishes you look at your spouse and say, “Eh? What happened there? Did he die? Did they get the money? Did he marry her? I bloody hate these TV dramas that don’t end properly!” You know those shows, right? Well ‘Lust, Money and Murder’ is like that. It just stops half way through the story. Just like that. Right in the [...]

    2. Note: I wanted to purchase the third book, but I accidentally purchased the first trilogy of the series instead. However, I don't regret it, because it is worth every penny. As a child, Elaine Brogan had a special bond with her father and she was detail-oriented, a gift that will help her later in life. When Elaine was sixteen, she became a model, but, after spending a huge amount of money for her humble condition, she realised that everything the agency promised her was just a scam. The sum of [...]

    3. Lust, Money, & MurderI enjoyed the first 3 chapters of this book. I was up most of the night reading, it's one of those books you can't seem to put down until you're finished

    4. 5★ Audiobook⎮ I literally just finished this audiobook less than 10 seconds ago and I’m still heavily breathing from having held my breath during the ending. Wow! This was such a rush. I’m left with a strong urge to go door-to-door proselytizing about Lust, Money & Murder. This audiobook has an addictive quality I’ve only experienced from television shows. You know how certain shows are considered “binge-worthy”? The ones that make you stay up until all hours of the night, comp [...]

    5. I downloaded the first of this trilogy, Lust, on . When I got to the end, I felt immediately compelled to get the other two books so I could see what happened next. So I snatched up the trilogy on Smashwords (learning how to purchase via PayPal in the process). I was not disappointed in the least. Growing up, Elaine Brogan's father tried to protect her from reality. But reality found a way to ruin her family and toss her into the fray. Her intelligence and beauty get her only so far. In some way [...]

    6. The prologue is the BEST hook I've read in a long time! When she goes over the cliff, at the moment of realization, Perfect! A real screen-flipper! [reading eReader version - not paper copy] ;DOkay, okay! I'll admit ite ONLY thing keeping me from reading this book straight through is that I am on the road for two months and computer access is a GD pain in the arse. I'm broadcasting from the Deep South. But if you're wonderingTHIS author, Mike Wells, is my first choice right now. ;D

    7. I don't really read books like this but it was very captivating. I am only sorry it took so long to finish but that is no reflection of the writer. I found it to be interestingly suspenseful. It seemed well researched and well written. I would highly recommend this book.

    8. This was an excellent book, first one I have read by this author. I look forward to reading his other books! This is a must read! It it thoroughly enjoyable.

    9. Lust, Money & Murder books 1-3 make up the first trilogy in the 10-book series written by author, Mike Wells.  According to his official website, Wells is a “bestselling author of more than 20 “unputdownable” thriller and suspense novels.”  Unputdownable is the only way to describe these books!Disclaimer: I received these books free from the author in exchange for an honest review. Even though these books were given to me, I did not and will not receive any compensation for [...]

    10. I have recently discovered the world of Indie publishing and the book series "Lust, Money and Murder" by Mike Wells were a wonderful surprise, proving to be a real page-turner! The eternal fight of good against evil is the main topic of the series. It is present not only as an underlying theme in the narrative but also as a constant internal battle of the main character Elaine Brogan and the supporting characters. Born in a poor Pittsburgh suburb, Elaine Brogan is intelligent, courageous and a b [...]

    11. This was my first attempt at an audio book and I haven't read the original book yet, so the story was completely new to me. I was a bit nervous thinking about this review, but here we go! I will attempt to not include any spoilers - it is tough when you are writing about 3 books though. Mike Wells really does write 'unputdownable' novels! At first I thought 'how long is it going to take me to get through 10 hours of an audio book.' Well the answer was less than a week. I listened while getting r [...]

    12. I'm really at a loss for words about how great this little trio/ quad was. Mike Wells did everything that a good author does to make a story great, plus he did all the things that writers don't extend themselves to do to make a story greater. There are four most shining aspects about this series. First, is that Wells makes a masterpiece out of characterizing. Secondly, plot and motive are airtight throughout; I've never seen more thorough plotlining. Thirdly, mood is established and present from [...]

    13. EntertainingThis proved a bargain as a box set. Three books were free and then obviously we had to buy the next book. It was a very good set up for the reader although I did choose not to continue with the series.I thoroughly enjoyed the first three novels despite the fact the books are more inclined to tell the story rather than show it. It was however done with humour and provided a smooth even levelled pace which took us to the conclusion in a satisfactory manner.I struggled to connect with t [...]

    14. Excellent spy story with a strong female character as a CIA agent versus an International master criminal.Great read ! I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it. The story line is very interesting and held my attention so much I went ahead and read the first three books already. Excellent spy story with a strong female character as a CIA agent versus an International master criminal, kept me engaged and guessing till the end. Looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

    15. Elaine Brogan was born in a poor Pittsburgh suburb to a doting working class construction worker father. As a child, he regaled her with tales of fictitious royal ancestors and he provided her with everything she could want or need, even if he had to beg, borrow or steal (mostly steal) to provide it. As a young woman, her aspirations were to enter the modeling profession to stake her fortune. She was content, comfortable and proud of the life she and her father had staked out for themselves. Tha [...]

    16. One of my favorite things about reading, reviewing, and blogging about books is circumstances such as this, with Mike Wells’ crime/suspense/thriller, Lust, Money, & Murder (Books 1,2,3). I took a look at the synopsis and thought, “yeah this looks pretty good, and it’s not my go-to genre, so I’ll give it a shot.” However, once I started reading I realized that this turned out to be one of the most exciting, fast-paced novels I have ever read!

    17. Title: Lust, Money & Murder (books 1-3)Author: Mike WellsGenre: Thriller:Review:This book kicks off with a breakneck pace and never slows downI finished this book wayyy faster than I expected (which is a good thing--it means I got sucked into the story.)

    20. Mike Wells’ “Lust, Money & Murder” is a good book in three parts. The first one is free, while the last two are affordable and worth the money. The thriller novel chronicles the travails of Elaine Brogan as she overcomes a difficult childhood to join the Secret Service and become one of its top counterfeit currency forensics investigators. Buffeted by job difficulties, torn by office romance, and caught up in a web of counterfeiting intrigue and espionage, Brogan faces danger and life- [...]

    21. MY REVIEWLets start with the narrator: Sue Sharp. She was AMAZING. She was able to switch her voice all around to take on each character. She made the book fun because of how she could manipulate her voice.

    24. After reading and reviewing the 'free offering of LM&M' Book One, I was keen to carry on reading the remaining instalments of the series.Having now read the instalments 2 and 3, I am pleased to say that these exceeded my every expectation.

    29. This book has good bones. I liked the concept of the story and especially enjoyed that the author, a man, did a pretty believable job of capturing a woman's perspective. The lead character, Elaine, is one tough cookie and she worked very, very hard to make sure that she accomplished everything she said she was going to. Your heart immediately goes out to her and you find yourself rooting for her to win her fight even as a child. Elaine didn't ever have it easy. Her mother left when she was just [...]
