    One thought on “The X”

    1. Lorena BatheyThe XI write this review of The X with dark circles under my eyes and what I call a book hangover! This book written by Lorena Bathey who graduated from St. Mary’s College with a degree in English, really knows how to pull her audience into the book. Not only is she a wonderful author but she is also a wonderful person who is there for you if you have any questions. When Lorena sent me The X to read and review it was personalized to me with a little note and signed.While reading t [...]

    2. Queen of Tarts Review ofThe Xby Lorena BatheyI wasn’t quite sure what I was getting into when I read The X. I knew it was a suspense story…. But honestly? that’s about it. I stepped out of my comfort zone and took a chance. The X is a book I likely wouldn’t have picked up on my own, but I’m glad it came into my hands. I would have missed out on a thriller that hooked me from the heroine’s first shocking life change until the action packed ending.The X is definitely a thriller. I was [...]

    3. I got this book out of the mailbox at around 12:30-1:00. I started reading it an hour or two later and was done that night. This shows you that it was a page turner from start to finish. The chapters were short enough to keep you in the mindset of reading just one more and the cliffhangers kicked you into doing just that. This being said I wouldn't rate this book with 5 stars and here's why.While I found that the characters were easy enough to get to know and love, I would have liked to see her [...]

    4. This book was extraordinary!! I couldn't put this book down!!!Clarissa Hadenfield suddenly finds that her world is not what she thought it was. Her husband of many years has just pulled the rug out from under her and left her with with nothing but questions. This book is a story of a woman who proves that when it comes to a mothers loveere is NOTHING that will stand in her way!! With the help of some new friends Clarissa learns new found strength and courage she never imagined.Lorena Bathey did [...]

    5. About the book: Long story short, the book is about a woman named Clarissa Hadonfield who was a naive homemaker who lived for her children. She worked sometimes in a flower shop and was dependent on her husband whom she soon realized was not the man she thought. Poor Clarissa was sleeping with the enemy! Desperate moments called for action and this woman showed that there is nothing a woman would not do or risk for those she loves. My opinion: This was a tough read. Don't get me wrong, I mean th [...]

    6. One thing is certain about this wonderful book, you cannot put it down! I couldn't put it down and even had to read while I was in the middle of cooking diner and other things that need done around the house! From the moment of starting the first part of the book, it was absolutely a constant roller coaster ride due to being a criminal book with the FBI. The author, Lorena Bathey, autographed this with the inscription being, "Life is meant to be kicked! Put your boots on!"In this wonderful book, [...]

    7. I received The X by Lorena Bathey, in order to review and give my honest opinion and I can honestly say it's a good book. Lorena takes you through the dynamic character development of Clarissa Hadonfield as she morphs from the mild mannered mother of two to a kick butt momma bear. Like many similar character stories, the dramatic event that switches her up arises around her sons, as a mother myself I can say I can relate. Lorena brings the reader in tugging at the heartstrings, you are immediate [...]

    8. This book was to me very dramatic and full of twist. When Clarissa's ex returns to her life she begins to realize the man she was married to isn't want he seems. this story is so full of lies, secrets and deception that i honesty had a hard time putting it down. I was also very impress how the author showed the female character to have an inner strength that she wasn't aware of till her children are threatened. As a mom that really hit home because as mom's we will do whatever we need to to prot [...]

    9. part of me wants to give this book 2 stars for falling short in a few areas but am giving it 3 because any book that compels you to read it in one sitting deserves 3. The intro is really good. You are quickly drawn in and the characters are well introduced.There should have been about 100 more pages as it seems like the were parts needing more fleshing outme spots just jumped too quickly.Story idea was good. Only a couple errors that should have been caught in editing.Will check out other novels [...]

    10. If you enjoy reading books where you think you know what is going to happen next and the story takes at completely different turn then this book is for YOU! You can read more about what we thing at griffinshoney(dot)com.

    11. Clarissa Haddonfield had a great life. She had two sons and a great, successful husband. Things changed overnight. Her husband decided to divorce her and take her boys away from her. Clarissa was shocked, but she would not give up on her boys. The X is an excellent read. I honestly thought it was going to be your ordinary boring love book when I read the first few pages. I was glad the book changed into a great suspenseful adventure, where good finally triumphs over evil.The book dealt with rela [...]

    12. I gave up 45% of the way through this book. There are far too many great books out there waiting to be read to waste time on one that is just not getting it for me.I suspect I may not have read the same book all those 5 star people did. I found the characters impossible to connect with. The story felt very rushed. There was a ton of info dumps and not enough attention to getting to know the characters.The author tells this story, but she doesn't "show" it. She doesn't make you feel it. She doesn [...]

    13. I read The X, in exchange for review from Tomoson. The book was written by Lorena Bathey and published by Lorena B Books. The book was about a mother, who fights to save her children. The beginning scenes were a little confusing (prologue) but got better as you moved into the book.In the beginning, Clarissa is married with two kids. Clarrissa and Ben was married 20 years. Everything appears to be perfect and then, she gets hit with divorce papers. The marriage was having problems. Ben (husband) [...]

    14. This book was a page turner and I loved that it had short chapters. I love reading by the chapter and so if I NEEDED to put the book down to do something else than I could and not be in the middle of a chapter. Authors break books up the way they want them to be read, but I do have to say I had a hard time putting this book down because I was always wanting to read more chapter and then one more. I did give this book 4/5 stars. It was not perfect although it was an easy and smooth read,While I f [...]

    15. I was recently given the opportunity to read and review The X by Lorena Bathey. It's the story of a divorced woman who realizes that her husband is evil and is brainwashing her sons. She fights back to try to protect her sons and get them away from their father's clutches.It's an interesting concept, but to be honest, I wasn't entirely thrilled with the execution. Maybe I'm being a little harsh here, but I really wish the author had paid more attention to grammar and punctuation throughout the s [...]

    16. I received this book to give an honest review.Wow! The X kept me up late last night and then this morning my nose was buried in the book. I did not want to finish it, but I just could not wait to see what would happen with Clarissa, would she get her children back or will her husband Ben win in the end? This is a thriller that will leave you wanting more! I found myself engrossed in Clarissa's life and what she was going through. She was a weak woman turned strong for not only for herself but fo [...]

    17. Fasten your seat belt for this ride of a book! A truly inspiring story about a woman who is blindsided and loses everything to pull herself up to fight for her family and what she believes in. Clarissa is a heroine that everyone will love. Her character is extremely well developed; you see wonderful insights into a remarkable woman who fights for her children and herself against a truly evil and vindictive husband who cares for nothing but his ultimate agenda.With the help of karate teaching Dan [...]

    18. The X, by Lorena Bathey, is a fast-paced exciting thriller that I devoured in one sitting. I just loved this book. I loved the main character, Clarissa. I loved that she was a devoted mom. I loved that she was smart & strong. I loved that she was middle-aged and tough as nails. I loved that she didn’t just lay down and let her husband walk all over her, and I loved that she respected those she sought help from. Ok, did I say I loved this book? This book was fun, yet serious. Clarissa was m [...]

    19. The X is a book that shows that women really can stand up for themselves. Just because you are a woman does not mean that you have to sit by and let a man take advantage of you. Clarissa is a wife and mom of 2 teen boys. Both Jeremy and Sean are very active, strong boys. Her and her husband have been falling farther and farther apart for years. But one day out of the blue Clarissa is served divorce papers. What would you do if you were served divorce papers with no warning? Clarissa did, at firs [...]

    20. This was a great thriller. A mother's wrath is like no other. It was interesting to see Clarissa realize who she was really married to. It is scary that he could hide his true identity from her for so long. I can not imagine what that must feel like after eight years, never mind how long Clarissa was married. The shock of who he was and how the kids reacted was not right. I could not believe what a jerk Ben was. I loved to hate him, especially when he brought his kids into the drama. I really li [...]

    21. I will say this, other than a few adult situations, this really felt like a young adult book. Not that it is a bad thing, I love them. I’m just saying it really falls into that category. That being said, I finished the book in one night. I didn’t want to put it down. I thought the story was great. I could imagine myself in the situations. The characters are easy to relate to. There were some areas that could have used a little more details, but for the most part all your questions are answer [...]

    22. I received a review copy of this book from the author:The X is one of those books that makes you want to read more. I received this book yesterday evening and I finished it a few moments before I begin writing this review. It is a real page turner, just when you think you know what is going to happen the story goes in a whole different direction. It is a good read and I would recommend it to others. The only complaint I have about it is some of the questions (one main question in particular) was [...]

    23. Do you love reading Thriller books? If so then The X by Lorena Bathey is a must read! If you are not to much into Thriller books, I still suggest reading this one! Yes it is that good! Once you start reading The X you will not want to put it down, keeping you on your toes wanting to know what is going to happen next. It truly is not a boring book at all and had me hooked within the first few pages. 213 pages of pure goodness for sure. I laughed, cried and found my thinking “oh my goodness, rea [...]

    24. Find out how Clarissa kicks some serious butt to get her kids back from her ex husband.Clarissa finds her life completely tipped upside down one morning with a single doorbell at her front door. She is served with divorce papers and finds out in the process her husband isn't what she thought she was and had been sleeping with someone she doesn't even know fully for the last 20 years. She must find tooth and nail to get her two teenage boys back.

    25. Lorena Bathey's "The X" is a great read if you like real-life, yes-this-could-happen-to-you type of book. It involves relationships, family, a shocking divorce, and the book demonstrates the main character's willingness to do whatever it takes to stand up for her children and take back what is rightfully hers - her family. Vivid descriptions and a great portrayal of a mother's love and strength are found in the book from start to finish. You'll definitely enjoy it!

    26. I absolutely loved the book. It kept me interested all the way to the end! I received a review copy through Tomoson. You can read my full review here: justmarriedmomof3/2013

    27. This review is for the Kindle edition which was listed as a choice.This was a pretty fair book. I found the premise to be a little far-fetched, but the writing was good. The story was interesting. It was also well-edited with very few errors.

    28. There were an awful lot of problems with the writing of this book. Continuity, lack of punctuation, wrong words. For example, MREs are called MRIs. Decent plot idea, very poor execution.
