    I really wanted to like this one, provided by netgalley I really, really did want to like it, but only because it took me so long to read it, unfortunately.There were some portions of the book which really were quite good, particularly focused when the plot starts to shift into gear and progress Those sections moved and were written with urgency and clarity Unfortunately, there just weren t enough of these great sections to make it an enjoyable read.I won t go into gory detail on all the things [...]

    I wasn t sure what to expect when I agreed to review Against the Storm by author Kat Martin butI certainly didn t expect to read a romance novel that was as fast paced, compelling and interesting as one of today s well written action adventure novels After finishing my copy of Against the Storm I can completely understand why Kat Martin is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author.The premise of Against the Storm is this Maggie O Connell is a beautiful and extremely talented photographer [...]

    I love Kat Martin s books they drag you in quickly and keep you hooked with a mixture of suspenseful drama and hot love story and neither element give in easy so you are kept guessing What i liked most was how much the characters got under my skin i was blown away by Ash and Robbie, in fact by the little family as a whole, best of all half way through I still didn t know who the stalker was The stalker reveal was great and I loved the end I will be reading the next one and I am hoping for a litt [...]

    I was able to find all the missing books in the series and plan on doing some reading this long weekend Up next is Against the Night.


    Betsy

    A good romantic suspense mystery novel that keeps you guessing and has some unanticipated excitement after you think it is all wrapped up I would have liked it better if the gratuitous sex had not interfered with the plot moving along There were SO many bedroom scenes, it was just over the top, corny.

    A solid addition to the Raines of Wind Canyon books, Against the Storm was an enjoyable read but not my favorite in the series It had all the elements of the first three strong alpha hero, a heroine who is in distress yet not helpless, an intriguing mystery to solve and a developing relationship yet it just didn t pack the same punch as the first three The main reason, I think, is in the hero and heroine themselves Trace has a weakness for redheads and a disasterous marriage that has caused him [...]

    This was a first for me for this author and one of her contemporary romances I have only read her historical ones in the past.I also didn t realise that this book was the middle of a series One of the things I enjoyed about it though is that you don t have to read the previous books as this one can be read as a stand alone.I really liked Maggie and Trace as characters and I thought they made a great couple.Could definately feel the chemistry between them and I love when an author can make you fe [...]

    Judith

    Gershwin commented in Porgy Bess A redheaded woman makes a choo choo jump its tracks The heroine in this story may not initially have exhibited such verve, but all in all, that s the effect she had on hero Trace Rawlins, a man who loves redheaded women above all others but who has been hurt, blindsided, conned, etc by one in particular his ex wife Now he has encountered a professional photographer of considerable fame, and while she may have begun as a client of his security firm, he wants her t [...]


    Donna

    I don t know why I read this book after I was disappointed with the other books in this series I guess I was looking for a comfort read before reading something with substance But this did not fit the bill.I would have liked the book for the mystery element alone, but I could not get past the fact that I disliked the main female character, Maggie To be blunt, I despised her She was a big fat liar and And I lost all respect for Trace for putting up with her.What is there to like about the woman [...]

    Reviewed on atastyreadTrace Rawlins has a thing for feisty red heads, but they all seem to have one thing in commonThey can t be trusted, and Maggie O Connell seems to be no different Even if he does feel things he shouldn t be feeling every time she comes around Maggie is being stalked Notes on her car, hang up phone calls, but the police don t care All they care about is a past mistake that makes her untrustworthy Maggie need Trace s help, but can he put aside his personal feelings and help he [...]


    Shay Williams

    I just want to get this out of the way and then I will go onto the actual review I totally disagree that any women s only protection against trouble is a man They are wonderful and I would hate to live without men but they are never the only solution or protection Okay now I have that off my chest.I think that I am in love No not with the hero Trace but with all the characters in this book And it s not that they are all that nice Some are definitely not that It s that they so are so real and th [...]
