Romantic Suspense/Psychological Thriller
Date Published: September 2018
Grace followed the rules. She always played it safe and never put her heart in jeopardy. Until the night she met Ryan. She’d never imagined that she could connect with an alpha male like him. Giving herself to him as he’d cradled her in his arms came naturally… until she sobered up. He was everything that she’d convinced herself she didn’t need. Or was he everything she needed?
Ryan balanced on a thin line of gray. He’d killed his share of demons but managed to live at peace with his actions. Then he met Grace, a woman who pushed all his buttons and shook him to his core. The need to have her overwhelmed him, but she kept shooting him down. Could he convince her that he was exactly what she needed?
One thing to be aware of is that you will get multiple points of view in this novel. It can take a few chapters to get used to, but once you do I think it is well done.
I liked the fact that we are on the search for a serial killer and that is the backdrop for their love story. Layers are wonderful in a novel as long as they are done seamlessly and I believe Tjebben conquered that.
I do wish we would have gotten just a bit more backstory on the characters, I think that would have highlighted their current relationship and obstacles.
Overall a wonderful not just Romance, but Thriller that will keep you on your game.
