A new series from Kat Martin is always a pleasure to read. From The Raines to The Brodies to The Boss Inc, all have been a thrilling pleasure to read and now the Texas Trilogy is out next week, and is definitely worth giving it a read.

Book two of the series, “Beyond Danger” throws the Texas mogul Beau Reese smack into the middle of his Senator father’s death and a young girl tied to him as family. Even as he’s reeling under the secrets of his father, his father’s supposedly secretary Cassidy Jones reveals her true identity as a private investigator hired by his father to look into the threats on his life.

As the mystery deepens and secrets slowly see the light of day, so does the attraction between Beau and Cassidy. With danger and death and shadowing them, love and trust seems to bring new hope for a future if they can kill the danger before it kills them.

With an interesting and captivating plot, “Beyond Danger” keeps the suspense going until the last page. Kat Martin’s characters, Beau and Cassidy make a good team with their stubbornness, courage and intelligence, giving the story a good dose of passion and intrigue to make this a worthy read.

Book 4 in the “Lazarus Rising” Series has billionaire Jay Maverick trying to make things right that had gone so horribly wrong. He may have not been directly connected, but he was responsible for funding a project that had created mayhem and killed innocent people.

One such victim is Willow, the woman he can’t forget and the woman he wants to make a part of his life. But there’s so much mystery, danger and death associated with the Lazarus project that staying alive is a luxury and trusting anyone is a costly mistake.

Coming out of the burning Lazarus lab is a miracle but Willow doesn’t remember her past and she is honed with skills that a touch alone could kill one. Knowing Jay’s association with the project doesn’t keep her away, and with the help of Jay and other survivors, she may have a chance at a future with Jay.

Hearts heed no advice, passion and love have no boundaries and with death dogging their every step, Jay and Willow have a lot to fight for and a past they need to reconcile with. Another adrenaline read with enough suspense and intrigue to keep the interest of the readers, Cynthia Eden pens “Run To Me” as another thrilling hit. The secrets of the past are definitely a surprise as well as the closure of their story a heartwarming curve ball!

My second read of Loreth Anne White started a tad bit slow, but sure picked up speed along with my heart beat, as “The Drowned Girls” kept resurfacing, brutalized, sodomized and victims of a larger, more powerful and unspeakable evil.

TheDrownedGirls-AngiePallorino#1-LorethAnneWhite-Jun2017

And Detective Angie Pallorino is trench deep in finding a serial killer targeting young girls, a case that can actually make her or break her. With her personal life shattered with a sick mother, and a wary relationship with her father, Angie is thrown into battling repressed memories of a childhood she can’t really reconcile.

Working alongside her new boss turned lover James Maddocks, both have a shitload of personal baggage they need to take care of, yet there are sparks and enough chemistry to support each other, work alongside to catch the killer or together die trying to save more innocents. They care, they help, and they have some kick-ass cops as family to protect and serve.

First of her new Angie Pallorino Series, “The Drowned Girls” sure will drown you in pages of suspense, the evil that hides behind power, of innocent lost and of secrets that people carry, that always have painful repercussions. I have to admit the beginning started off a bit slow, but boy did it pick up speed and action after the first few pages.

And coming to Loreth Anne White, she is an eloquent writer wielding a mighty pen or maybe her laptop, and a brilliant creative mind! She did a fabulous job with Pallorino and Maddocks. They may have different family dynamics and diverse personalities, but the common goal of justice gives them a purpose and the abundance of care gives them hope to do their jobs, protect the innocent and maybe manage a relationship amidst the crazies. The plot is captivating, enough twists to keep you guessing, and the secondary characters are the special condiments adding flavor to this thriller.

I shall definitely follow Pallorino and Maddocks, now that my curiosity is piqued with Angie’s mysterious past and how Loreth will develop Maddocks’s and Angie’s relationship.

You want a dark and exciting romantic suspense read, then Cynthia Eden is the go-to author. And it’s just not plain horrific evil; her villains are super smart, twisted and a pro at mind games, making her books one of the best thrillers to read.

Her latest Killer Instinct series starts off with the prequel “The Gathering Dusk” and this should be read before continuing with “After The Dark”, to follow Samantha Dark and Blake Gamble, as they take on evil in plain sight and very closely attached to Samantha Dark.

AfterTheDark-KillerInstinct#1-CynthiaEden-Mar2917

“After The Dark” starts off with Blake reuniting with Samantha who was and is once touted as one of the best profilers. Yet her FBI career goes down south when her ex-lover and best friend turns out to be the killer. A killer she may have let go. But now someone is hunting Samantha in her small quite town and Blake wants Samantha to help catch the killer and also protect her at the same time.

I love when thrillers are just not gory and violent, but have a scintillating mind game in play. Cynthia Eden is exemplary in that field and I just love her characters. She gives equal depth and layers to the good as well as the bad, to make her stories so very brilliant. And Samantha Dark and Blake Gamble make one strong couple as they battle for their lives against a psychopath who knows Samantha to the very bones of her being.

“After The Dark” should be read to enjoy the brilliance of the plot, the characters that will become one of our favorites and the narration that is tight and filled with adrenaline.
