January 22nd: Deal Sharing Aunt REVIEW
Laugh at divorced dad Austin Carr, a funny, oversexed scamp who’ll do anything to get his kids back. Think Bugs Bunny with guns and a penis.
Divorced dad Austin Carr wakes up every day in a beat-up camper, parked on someone else’s private property. Why? Because his alimony and child support payments were established by New Jersey’s family court system when his income was double, and for the last two years he has failed to earn the legally mandated monthly nut. He’s had his savings drained, his Maxima repossessed, his salary attached, and his visiting rights suspended. He bought the twelve-year-old Chevy pick-up with the rusty camper for $800 last month because another landlord tossed his butt in the street. Will stretching the rules, his own morals, and the boundaries of common sense raise the cash needed to get his kids back? Or will his big mouth and bad behavior set him up for a nasty double-cross? See if Austin can redeem himself and win back his children.

Praise for Big Numbers:
“Darkly comic, with an engaging protagonist.”
– T.J. MacGregor, Edgar Winner, Author of The Tango Key Mysteries

“Big Numbers is a gritty, sexy, violent, and funny book.”
– Liz Clifford at Reviewed by Liz

“Wonderful characters…well-written, entertaining…a good read.”
Connie Anderson for Armchair Interviews

“Indiana Jones has his whip and Luke Skywalker has his light saber, but for Austin Carr, his full-boat grin is the weapon of choice.”
Melissa for Lou Reads

“Jack Getze started his career as a newspaper reporter. As a result, BIG NUMBERS is lean and mean, with not a word wasted. A truly fun, genuinely funny read.”
Lisa Guidarini for Bluestalking Reader
My Review

Big Numbers ultimately surprised me in the wittiness of the main character, Austin Carr.

Austin Carr is a stock broker who has hit rock bottom.  With a nasty divorce under his belt, and losing custody of his children, he is at the lowest of lows.  However, that famous Austin Carr smile can get him out of the tough situations.

Big numbers is about breaking the law, however has some mystery.  Just when you think you know what is about to happen, well, you shouldn't think about it because it all turns around when you least expect it.  It has humor, excitement and off the wall characters that you will fall for.  I loved Austin's nicknames he comes up with for other characters in the story.  Austin is desperate, and this story will prove what lengths some will go through to achieve their ultimate goal.  Austin's experience as a stock broker and smooth talker has benefited him greatly in this story.  Its a fun and fast read with lots of excitement and unexpected twists.

I will admit I don't know much about stocks and bonds. However, it was fun driving into Austin's world and witness his struggles.  You can't help but feel sorry for him, and root for him all the way!

Give it a try, its a fun read.

  1. Big Numbers sounds different from anything I have read before. I hadn't heard of the book here- but from the blurb and your review it sounds like a book I will enjoy. Glad it is okay to read if I don't know about stocks (because I don't understand them). ;)

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway.

  2. Thanks for having me aboard, Michele. That's the nicest three-star review I've received. I appreciate your taking the time to read my work.
