“What an odd feeling it was to want to slap a man and kiss him at the same time. Only Aidan Thorne had ever made her think that way….” That’s Aiden Thorne for you – one of the elite of the LCR Elite, handsome, sexy and a sinfully deadly operative, with a past that haunts him and places the people he loves in danger.

“Just because she looked like candy sprinkles on an ice cream sundae didn’t mean she was delicate…” the beautiful and resilient Anna Bradford has endured enough pain and torture to last her many lifetimes. Delicate flower she is not, but a child psychologist she definitely is, placing all her energy and passion in helping children and jumping into the frying pan to save the ones she cares with all her heart.

The disappearance of her colleague brings Anna to Aiden as Aiden is searching for a past that he needs to bury to move on with his future. And this little incident manifests into a dangerous ride of betrayal, death and the momentous truth of love that was meant to be.

“Running Wild” is another brilliant romantic suspense by Christy Reece in her LCR Elite Series and Aiden has held a super special place in the hearts of the readers and giving him his happily ever after is just icing on the cake. The incorporation of the sub plot is a great twist as is the reality behind Aiden’s past. And as the plot gets more evil and twisted, Christy never loses her grip of narration, nor does she lose sight of developing the relationship between Aiden and Anna.

And I have to reiterate the fact that a review definitely doesn’t do justice to her novels. Her books have to be read to endure the evil, live in the emotions, savor the passion and root for her flawed characters with her flawless writing!

“Riley Ingram, the girl who had never belonged to anyone, had finally found her way home.” 

No matter how far you run, the past has a nasty knack of playing catch up. No matter you’ve created an identity to start fresh, unless the past is erased, there cannot be hope of a future. Riley Ingram may have been “Running Scared” from the demons of her heinous past, but she has become a warrior at heart saving lives and becoming a daughter to Noah McCall. Paired with Justine Kelly and running ops with him for the past three years has given her purpose to love, hope to survive and a LCR family that covers her six no matter what. And working three years with Justin only seems to stoke the embers of desire and passion that refuses to diffuse between them.

RunningScared-LCR Elite

The past has come calling for Riley Ingram aka Jessica Larsen and the time has come for Jessica Larsen to pen the final chapter of her past and getting the answers she deserves of her identity and her roots. And we get a torturously amazing story of evil and danger, tenacity and courage, passion and love, support and family.

I shall forever remember the morning after Riley and Justin spent a night together. The emotional conversation between Noah and Justin will be one of my favorite scenes. The confessional night between Riley and Justin will forever be one of the most heart wrenching and tearful dialogues I’ve read. And Riley and Justin will be one of my top favorites of Christy’s character in par with McKenna and Lucas (Last Chance).

Christy Reece created another elite pair in Riley and Justin. Her attention to detail is amazing, her play of emotions and tenderness is a bullet to your heart, and her placement of supporting characters in the story only proves her prowess as a brilliant romantic suspense writer. A review definitely doesn’t do justice to her novels. Her books have to be read to endure the evil, live in the emotions, savor the passion and root for her flawed characters with her flawless writing!

The wheels have been set in motion for Aidan and Anna, and I cannot wait to see how Christy Reece choreographs their story of a lifetime!

Received an ARC from the author for an honest review.

 

I started off my first review of the Grey Justice Series “Nothing To Lose”, with the following –

“Funny thing about humans is, at our best we can be the most noble of animals, but if not governed by law and justice, some tend to become the monsters of all monsters! Money, power and fame are not vices in the right hands, but once they get into the monsters’ hands, and innocent lives are at stake, it’s a different ball game.”

And the domino affect of this is the very essence of the following stories of the entire series written by Christy Reece.

WhateverItTakes-GrayJustice2-Fall2015

As a member of that very evil family, Eli Slater has been working nonstop to clear the family name, destroy the traces of evil, leave the shadows of a past that threaten his future, and create a life for his two adorable daughters and the rest of his family. But when unforeseen threats bring danger and death to his threshold, Eli will protect his family…

Until his last breath – with whatever he’s got and “Whatever It Takes!!!”

Kathleen Callahan has been in the best of places and the worst of places as she loses her sister to an evil with justice going against her and her entire life is on a precipice of pain and betrayal. Yet, she finds herself fighting for justice, with the help of Justice and accepting the inevitable shades of Grey to help innocent victims and bring closer to helpless families. But never giving up her fight to find the truth behind her sister’s death and the events two decades old that seem to connect Eli and Kathleen for the fight of their lives and that of their loved ones…

And she will get justice for her sister with tenacity and “Whatever It Takes!!!”

There is no doubting the writing prowess of Christy Reece!!!! Her ability to create characters with courage, integrity and empathy, her brilliance in weaving stories of loss and pain, see-sawing between the lines of white and black, connecting the players with the past and bringing a closer in the present for a future for each, Christy is one of the most compelling writers of romance thrillers I’ve had the pleasure of reading.

I am a sucker for the underdog and the fallen rising with a vengeance to beat the odds, and of women who overcome their fears and betrayal to come out the other side with courage and integrity. For this alone Eli Slater will be one of most favorite fictional characters and along with Kathleen, one of my courageous couples of fiction times! 

And let me assure you that each book can be read as a standalone, but what fun is it if not knowing where it had all begun…

Received an ARC from the author for an honest review.

‘Chance Encounter’ can be deadly enough to break a soul. ‘Chance Encounter’ can be a balm in the night of deadly shadows and a ‘Chance Encounter’ can be the very epitome of love that endures to fight for their destiny.

The LCR Elite has a new member in the savvy and fallen quarterback Brennan Sinclair. With a past that refuses to fade and a guilt that seems to eat him from the inside, his first mission with the LCR Elite lands him under the roof of the beautiful and wholesome Kacie Dane.

Another fallen angel to the evil of the world, enduring the naked scars of pain, Kacie Dane always has a smile for the world. Embracing her profession as a model, pouring her inner pain into Kacie Dane Foundation, she channels her nightmares into strength and courage, giving back to the world in her very small means.

ChanceEncounter-LCRElite2-July2015

But when her torturous past threatens her life, Brennan steps in with his support and empathy, love and security, and the entire LCR family weaves a shield of protection. And that very shield stokes the embers of lust and passion, and the need for companionship brings Brennan and Kacie into the folds of love.

“Chance Encounter” gives us a chance to know two wonderful characters with so much strength and courage makes us tear for their pain and loss. Two good people, who got the wrong end of the deal, yet fate throws them into the hands of destiny, smile with each other and pass those very smiles around. Christy does a stupendous job of portraying their inner demons, feelings and thoughts, that you cannot but help laugh and cry along with them.

What I love about Christy Reece is her amazing creativity of characters, so broken yet redeemable. She can write adrenaline and heart racing romantic suspense and thrillers and on the other end of the spectrum is her sublime romance and immense depth of feelings. All her stories may not have to be bloody and pure evil to send the message across. Evil and love can romance at a sublime level in her stories and she does a brilliant job of narrating them.

This is one of her very best of best works that I will revisit several times and Kacie and Brennan will take a very close second to my favorites McKenna and Luke (Last Chance).

Here’s another outstanding series from Christy Reece’s sensational basket of LCR operatives. A spin off of her former LCR Series, “Running On Empty” is the first in the LCR Elite Series. For the uninitiated readers of Christy Reece, LCR Elite Series would be the perfect start to get to know her red-hot operatives and also get to visit the infamous ones from the original series.

Sabrina Fox and Declan Steele – outstanding operatives, partners in covert operations and significant others in life. Yet someone choreographs an outstanding operation, breaking them apart, sending Declan into the dungeons of torture and Sabrina into a vortex of anguish, until Noah McCall drops an olive branch to bring meaning back to life.

After been rescued, Declan has only one mission in life, and that is to get back at Sabrina for double-crossing him and breaking his heart into pieces. Even as he comes face to face with her, he cannot pull the trigger on her as he’s consumed with emotions of love and passion that have never ceased, in direct war with the pounding in his head that Sabrina was responsible for his capture and torture.

RunningOneEmpty-LCRElite-Sept2014

Circumstances put them together under the same roof and it is up to them to trust each other and find the mole in their life, responsible for their separation. And when Sabrina gets taken, Declan’s revenge turns into a race against time to save the one and only woman who stole his heart.

Yes…. there is plenty of action, yes…there is suspense and danger…and yes there is chemistry to top the charts, but what puts Christy Reece over and above is her brilliant characterization of people. Whether they are the primary or the secondary, every character is penned to detail and cloaked with their individual aura of persona. There is a history behind them, there is an identity behind them and there is spirit in them, and every character breathes an essence of their nature.

Christy Reece is on of those amazing writers, who nurture a good story with understanding and patience. She creates history behind every relationship and does not put any terms, conditions and expiration dates to relationships. Without losing the grip on the crux of the story, keeping the thrills and the frills at high levels, Christy does a fabulous job with Sabrina and Declan’s relationship, making our hearts cry for their pain and love…and this is what makes me fall for a book and a writer/author.
