Striking Edge by Kelsey Browning is a unique and intriguing story that will have you turning pages from beginning to end. As always, Browning writes fantastic characters and an interesting plot that makes you feel as those you are part of the story!
Shep Kingston is asked to guide several celebrities on a mountain trek as part of a reality show. As much as he loves being in nature, he isn’t a fan of people. Joss Wynter is one of the participant’s of the show and is hoping to get her life back after a tragedy has struck and she finds herself under scrutiny from her fans.
As Striking Edge unfolds, there are several twists and turns that are so unpredictable and just when I thought things couldn’t get crazier they did. I wanted the story to end for Shep and Joss quickly. Browning really put them through the ringer!
Mixed in with all the obstacles of what Joss and Shep went through we saw moments of their romance budding and how each of them were healing from their pasts bit by bit. I really enjoyed the honest and raw moments between these two characters. While it wasn’t the smooth romance of many novels I have read, it was Joss and Shep’s individual romance that could only be theirs and that was so cool.
If you are looking for a romantic suspense story that is outside of the ordinary but also captivating give Striking Edge a read.
Man Killer by Misty Evans is the second book in the Spies of Shadow Force series. If you like spies and romance, give this series a read. Man Killer features Mick and Cassandra, two unlikely spies. Mick is a SEAL recently rescued from prison by Shadow Force and Cassandra is Shadow Force’s chief operating officer and attorney. Together they are thrown into the world of espionage in order to save the world.
My favorite character of the story was probably Cassie. She is a serious person who wants to do her job well and open up her own law firm. She wants to ignore her attraction to Mick for fear of it messing with her life plan. Luckily her heart guides her on this mission and she can’t help but fall in love with him. Mitch isn’t too shabby either. He isn’t too sure of Beatrice and is skeptical he will ever join her team, but he understands when to step up for his country and for innocent humans around the world.
The best scenes were the ones where Cassie found her confidence and took control of situations whether it was when she was acting as her undercover character or just during the quiet moments with Mick.
Evans always writes great action scenes and the ones in Man Killer are no exception. They had my heart beating rapidly, flipping pages, and wondering how in the world everyone was going to get out alive! So, if you are looking for an entertaining romantic suspense book to read, give Man Killer a try!
If you love romantic suspense and babies, give Deadly Rescue by Misty Evans and Amy Manemann a read! Weird combination, right? Well, not for the Southern California Violent Crimes Taskforce. Cooper, Celina, Nelson, and Sophie were expecting a weekend of training for the SCVC Taskforce group and relaxation for Sophie, 36 weeks pregnant with twins.
Evans and Manemann wouldn’t let us just enjoy the intimacy between power couple Cooper and Celina or the newish love between Nelson and pregnant Sophie. Nope, they like to throw in a little danger. What happens when a training exercise turns real?
I have enjoyed this series from the beginning and the novellas like Deadly Rescue that are quick reads, still pick a punch and include everything the full length novels do – edge of your seat action, dreamy romance, off the charts chemistry, and a plot that has you wondering what will happen next. I highly recommend Deadly Rescue to any romantic suspense fan!
Incognito by Adrienne Giordano is the sixth book in the Lucie Rizzo series. It can be read as a stand alone but is so much fun when you read it along with the series. Giordano treats us once again to an original mystery, a mob princess, wacky family, supportive but crazy friends, and a dog (of course), and a hot cop!
These books are so much fun. It’s hard to capture all of it in a review, but if you like cozy mysteries, give this one a read. You will fall in love with the series! Incognito kept me turning pages while laughing and having a grand old time with the characters. Giordano does such a spectacular job with the originality of her stories! I enjoy figuring out the mystery along with Lucie and the gang because it makes it much more of an adventure!
Along with the fun story and characters in Incognito, this is probably my favorite book with Tim and Lucie’s romance. Their flirting and quips with one another made me smile. They are such a fun couple and any detective that can put up with a mob boss daughter’s family is a keeper!
If you are looking for an entertaining read with crazy characters, an equally crazy adventure and love and family, give Incognito a read!
I know when I pick up a Jill Shalvis story I will be thoroughly entertained with a fun storyline, hot chemistry, and witty dialogue. Hot Winter Nights was no different. I have been reading the Heartbreaker Bay series a bit out of order, but they are still so much fun. In Hot Winter Nights, Molly and Lucas are center stage for the readers and their romance and personal challenges are quite engaging.
Molly works at Hunt Investigations behind a computer. She is excellent at her job but wants to be out in the field. Problem is, her boss and her brother don’t think she is ready and would like to keep her safe. Lucas is recovering from being shot weeks ago and is going stir crazy at not being able to get back into the action. What a perfect time for him to tag along with Molly on an unsanctioned (by her boss) case of the “Bad Santa.”
I love romantic suspense stories so I was glad Shalvis added a touch of it to Hot Winter Nights. While it is still very much a contemporary romance, the bit of suspense makes the story so much more interesting to me. She does a wonderful job weaving he romance, personal struggles, and investigation plots together.
Most that read Shalvis’ books want the hot romance and they will get it in Hot Winter Nights. Lucas and Molly have undeniable chemistry, a relatively easy going relationship and just work so well. They feed off one another and it makes you wonder how they survived this long without one another.
If you are looking for a contemporary romance story with a bit of suspense, give Hot Winter Nights a read. You will be hooked and ready for more books in the series!
