Taking a much needed break from crafting my christmas gifs ( never start too early ^^) i decided to follow up with sharing the last romantic suspense i read since it was like the flavor of this summer for me.
Those who know me have discovered long ago that i'm the read in order kind, i don't like starting a series in middle safe if i'm absolutely sure the books are all kind of stand alone.. it's the reason sometimes i have to wait month or year before reading i book i want because i had to get my hands on precedent ones first.
This time it was completely different, i had signed for the RAK from R& R Novels ( THANKS!!!) which is really a surprise one you can says your 3 favourite genres but when yoiu will receive something and what it's secret until you discover the package in your mailbox.
I was so happy to receive something that day that i was jumping around then i opened it and.... a romantic suspense my last choice ( but one of my favourite remember) and an author i absolutely never heard of... the cover and the blurb were really making me interested but....after checking it's book 4 in a series.... little disappointment, book safely posed on the shelves.....but the attraction was too much to resist....
Now i'm really happy to share my opinion on Deep Disclosure by Dee Davis!
Genre: romantic suspense, MilitarySource: RAK (thanks to Mad and Ellie from R&R novels)
WONDERFUL! As soon as I had my hands on this book I was drawn to it so much that it didn’t even last in the TBR pile. I had to discover this author… I can sound strange because I’m usually not listening to my instinct that much especially since this title is in fact the fourth in the series and I ‘m more the reading in order kind of reader.
Really, yes having read precedent books could have been great as this one kind of give spoilers but in no way it’s a necessity. It was my first try at this series and even at this author and I completely fell in the story without any trouble. I could understand the story perfectly and even the general background, it’s very well done
The action is immediate in the first few pages and there is not a moment when the tension drop, I couldn’t stop turning the page even if I had some strong suspicions (and I was right!!!) about the culprit. I was completely hooked and caught in the never ending action. The romance is there as well and well done, the characters are attracted to each others but take the time to build some kind of trust before acting on their feeling which make the relationship even more believable after what they both lived in the past.
Alexis is a strong Heroine and she has difficulty to trust since she nearly had no one to rely on while living off the radar since a teenager. She is loyal and is ready to fight for what she believes; I really liked that about her. Yes I did want to shake her as well when she didn’t trust Tucker after everything but I really appreciate her.
Tucker had to stay years in a Columbian prison for nothing and no one could live that without being affected for a long time. As soon as he sees Alexis his interest is there, he doesn’t understand why or how but his instincts are telling him something which saves his life. No matter what the rumour is he can’t accept that Alexis could be a terrorist and thus protect her fiercely. He is so courageous despite years of suffering. Really I would love to see what happened exactly in
we have glimpse of it we learn the results but this book just made me want
The investigation is not 100% original but is written in such a way that you can’t put the book down. I liked that we had some closure even in the background there is a bigger investigation, a red line which seems to be developed along the series. The big, really big villains are not caught yet but the team learn slowly more about them (they crossed way with them in precedents books as we are told but they are still a mystery) and it’s good. It’s not really a cliffhanger, I’m not on edge for the next tome. However I really enjoyed the story and writing style so I can’t wait to get the precedents books to catch up on what I missed even if it’s perhaps darker than this story.
If you want a good romance suspense to enjoy this summer (but not only) this could be the book for you. You can start this one if you just want one or start from the beginning if you prefer.
