Time is definitively flying with my birthday at the corner but at the same time i find myself strangely zen ( or resigned) with all the administrative trouble i'm under i have no energy left for unnecessary stress. Fortunately, despite juggling with the appointments and numerous calls to make i found the time to read and really good friends to provide me with said books (thanks!!!)
So i have been reading my chritsmas/ new year book and this time i picked one from an author i already know but in another genre ( paranormal) this time it was mostly a military suspense romance ( with bit of supernatural) and i was longing for some suspense romance without knowing it so i couldn't resist trying this new series. Next one will be another genre again as i'm varying this month
Genre: romantic suspense,militarySource: gift ( thanks Carien!!!!)
I do love military romance suspense and in this one the suspense is well done. To start, i loved that we got a little description of all the men in the team right in the prologue...of course we only get the minimum at that point but it was great as we could immediately feel a connection to them and jump into the story without wondering who was who.
All the member of ARES suffered a lot and that created such a strong tie between them that they would do everything for each other. Because no one understand them as well as they do they decided to use their speciality to built together a security firm ARES.
Rafe is the head of the team, the one that keep them together and ARES was his idea....however before they can start he is called to clean his grandfather house which has been sold and that leads him to
. There he meets a woman and his instincts kick in. he always followed
his gut so when he discover that Annie has vision he isn't surprised and
doesn't take that for lies. He believes her and try to see how it could help. Iowa
Annie 's past is dark...daughter of a serial killer ( or supposed one as he wasn't judged but killed when arrested) she got into the system as a child and she had to hide her gift because no one wants a little girl seeing murder in her head. Years later when the vision start again she has to make sure it's nightmare not vision and if it's vision she wants to save those girl....but coming back in the city where all happened isn't as easy as she thoughts and with new murders she is even suspected....When a good looking and protective man as Rafe interfere she isn't sure she can trust him or herself around him at first. However as the danger grow they will have to trust each other.
I loved how they took their time, oki in a sense they do get together too rapidly but they strengthen it progressively. They are attracted to each other but love comes later.
The investigation was well done with some good twists.
i really liked this story and i'm curious to read the rest of the series because if this book focused on Rafe and a serial killer, another member of the team is receiving strange messages and it's something i want to learn more about.
Disclaimer: All opinions are my own and i voluntary reviewed this book
Are you enjoying one genre more than another this month?
