Genre: Romantic Suspense
Can I just start by saying that I loved this book. The moment Lauren lost control of her truck and it went hurtling down the hill I was hooked. Give me a good romantic suspense story and you have me wrapped around your little finger. And this was a very good one.
Okay. There were little quirky moments that made me want to smack the characters upside the head. Like when Ryder pulls Lauren out of the accident and they end up making out in a ditch. And I was yelling at them. Hang on a minute! She's just had an accident. She has a head injury and a possible concussion and you're making out? In a ditch?
Or when they were in the Meth house and Ryder and Rose were going to interrogate the guys who'd abducted Lauren. And she didn't want them killed. Seriously, girl. You married a warrior! He's going to maim and kill anyone who causes you harm. Get with the program.
You see what I mean. There were a few of these quirks but they didn't detract from the story because I was right there with the characters cheering them on or smacking them upside the head. LOL
The story is well written and balanced well between the suspense and the romance. The chemistry between Lauren and Ryder is pretty spot on for a young married couple who are getting a second chance after a separation. I understood Ryder's reasons for leaving and totally get Lauren's reaction and reluctance to get back with him. The situation with the abduction is right up Ryder's street as he goes into protection mode.
This is one of my favourite romantic suspense books of 2016. Most definitely. Roll on the next book in the series. #TeamFear all the way! 4.5 Ryder Lovebites!!!!!
