Zoe’s stalker has been murdered…
Dr. Zoe Hansen was forced to leave her beloved hospital job to escape a stalker. It worked—or so she thought. She’s terrified when he reappears in her life one night—and stunned when he turns up viciously murdered soon after. She’s arrested for the crime, but she quickly clears her name. Unfortunately, her problems are far from over. She’ll have to accept the protection of the one man she shouldn’t want.
…now she’s in more danger than ever before.
Former Navy SEAL Sawyer McCabe might not know the gorgeous Zoe as well as he wants to, but he knows all about trouble. So when she's threatened, he steps in to help her regardless of the consequences and gets her out of town. But it’s not enough to escape a determined killer. As the danger closes in they have to trust each other if they want to stay alive. And Sawyer’s determined to do whatever it takes to keep Zoe safe and in his arms. Because Zoe is worth risking everything for.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
Former Navy SEAL turned bodyguard falls for girl with stalker. Such a cliché! And I don’t give a crap! These stories are always awesome. Damsel in distress syndrome does not bother me, as long as said damsel is not constantly having TSTL moments.
Dr. Zoe falls victim to a very deranged and violent colleague and is forced to leave the hospital she works at. After a few months of peace, the stalker returns, forcing Zoe to go to her friends for help. She meets with new Red Stone Security employee and yummy ex-Navy SEAL Sawyer who is more than willing to help keep her safe and make her his in the process. But it seems Zoe wasn’t the only one with a crazy stalker and soon complications start piling up.
This being my first book in the Red Stone Security series, I worried that I might be too lost on who was who, but this story works perfectly as a standalone. I do believe that being familiar with all the characters would give it an extra oomph.
It’s fast-paced and the plot twists were fairly unexpected. It was a very enjoyable read and the sexy times were pretty hot.
I will definitely look up the previous books to this series and any other work from this author.
Sparkle’s Rating: 4 Cliches are Awesome Stars
I was excited to have the opportunity to read and review Deadly Fallout by Katie Reus. I’m a long-time fan of the Red Stone Security series and have read every single book! What I love most about this series is that the author always gives me what I want: an alpha hero that will stop at nothing to protect and keep the heroine safe! Even though Deadly Fallout is the tenth book in the series (and each book is sequential), I think all the Red Stone Security books will work fine as stand-alone reads. For readers that like to read series books in order, start with book one, No One to Trust.
While the Red Book Security books follow a pretty similar formula (damsel in distress with a sexy and protective hero), some stories have worked better for me than others. Deadly Fallout ended up among my favorites. There was just a lot to like! A former Navy SEAL hero, a twist on the typical stalker plot, and characters that act like adults and aren’t afraid to give into their chemistry. I liked both characters but especially liked the heroine, Zoe. She was a take-charge type and knew exactly what she wanted when it came to Sawyer. Although the steam level wasn’t through the roof, I thought the steamy parts were quite…steamy!
The chemistry was almost too much. And at the same time, not enough. She simply couldn’t get enough of him, wondered if she ever would.
When he pulled back and slid into her again, she moaned his name. “Sawyer.”
Her clit was pulsing, begging to be touched again. Feeling bold, she reached between her legs and started stroking herself as he began thrusting.
“Oh yeah, touch yourself, sweetheart. Come on my dick,” he rasped out, his voice a bare whisper…
I’m rounding Deadly Fallout up to a four-star rating. The writing was good, the sexy bits were hot, the characters were likable, and the book rated high on my readability scale… it had me from beginning to end. I’m looking forward to reading more from this series! Katie Reus never disappoints!
