My Musings : 

I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

The book started off on a high note. The situation was tense from the beginning. Nicole was targeted by a serial killer and Kyle was working on the case and he had a personal interest in the killer. From the first time they both meet, the sexual tension was palpable between them. The chemistry was off the charts hot and it took on a life of its own. The romance aspect was both sizzling and sweet in turns.

Nicole was a strong character inspite of her recent attacks. She put up a brave front and she was realistic in her fears. Kyle was a typical cop, wanting to protect Nicole and at the same time wanting to apprehend Barber. But I felt that he was a bit callous in the beginning because of his personal agenda. He quickly mellowed out and chose Nicole over his anger. Another pair I quite enjoyed reading about were Rob and Sheryl. They were cute and made the perfect pair.

The book was quite heavy on the romance and less on the suspense.The killer was revealed near the beginning so there was no mystery there. The only story to follow was how Kyle would get Barber. I would have liked a more suspenseful story. I found it a bit lacking in it. But I loved the interactions of the characters. It made for a fast read. The pace was fast and definitely had me trying to find out what Barber was planning next.

The ending was a bit predictable. I almost saw the scene playing out as soon as Kyle and Rob were called to check out the tip. Another delightful addition to the cast was Charlie. And I loved the way he was rewarded at the end. It had me laughing softly. It made the perfect ending with all 3,yes, 3 pairs getting together.

The author has an easy style of narration and her writing makes for the perfect weekend read. I can recommend this one to romance lovers and I will also be checking out her other books.

My rating : 4/5

Author Info

My writing career began in 2011, after my wonderful husband bought me a Kindle for Christmas and changed my world. I started reading romance novels, and fell in love with them. I decided to write one myself, and disappeared into my room over a long Wisconsin winter and wrote my debut novel, PROTECTING ROSE. I submitted to a few publishing houses and was offered a contract with Soul Mate Publishing, which I quickly accepted.

PROTECTING ROSE went on to win the 2012 Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence in the romantic suspense category. Well, I was hooked.

Today, I'm a multi-published, award-winning author, and live in Wisconsin with my husband Patrick. I love to read, play piano, and spend time with family and friends. I enjoy novels with fast-paced action and steamy romance, protective alpha men and strong heroines. I belong to several writing groups, including Romance Writers of America (RWA) and Sisters in Crime.
