Sometimes characters in a love story don't seem to make sense and Sheriff's Deputy Cade Evigan and Biker Bar owner/manager Katrina Killian seem to be on opposite sides of the law but often times looks can be deceiving. Cade was a tough character to crack; he didn't want anyone to know him, he didn't want to be involved, and he sure as hell didn't want a woman in his life but Katrina just wouldn't let it go. She made her presence known, she wouldn't let him hide from himself or her and most of all she made him feel something he hadn't done in a long time.
I really loved the interplay between Cade and Katrina and the fact that a good deal of time passed in this book and while the reader doesn't "see" all of this time it is implied and that's all we need to understand that this wasn't some fast and furious romance. They had many ups and downs and a lot of not so pretty moments but there was also a sense of trust between them they both knew shouldn't exist but did.
A long investigation into the Wheels of Pain MC is front and center in this book but instead of it being a look into the underbelly of the MC, the reader sees it from the eyes of those trying to put them away and save the town they have terrified into silence. I found this to be a fascinating look at a different side of the MC world.
I love seeing an author stretch beyond her normal fare and author Dee Tenorio has done just that; Convicted is suspenseful, edgy, laced with humor, and sexy. It simply is a fantastic story!
Review copy provided for an honest review.
This is one of the best romantic suspense novels I have read in quite some time. I loved the characters and the storyline is well developed and brilliantly executed. I will definitely be reading more by this author.
Cade Evigan was part of the Marine Special Ops with his buddy Rick, but now he's out & has come to help Rick clean up his hometown by becoming a Sheriff's Deputy. He's learned some hard lessons in the Marines & knows that those that are TOO helpful are usually the ones who want you dead the quickest. He doesn't know how to take Katrina's bold approaches and can't help but suspect her motives. PTSD doges his every step and the town is wary of the new "psycho cop" in town.
Katrina Killian is an undercover DEA agent working in the midst of her ruthless Uncle's MC, managing the bar in which they meet and hang out. The old-timers she grew up with are all gone now and the new batch of crew members are getting more difficult to fool by the day. Her uncle's no longer a safety net and she's being watched. One wrong move could land her in the hospital or worse. She's intrigued by Cade and finds him equal parts frustrating, sexy, and comfortable. As the times passes by, she pushes her way into his life with less and less fight.
Hot Factor: 4
Why did I chose to read this book?
I'm not going to lie... this one was 100% cover choice.
While I cannot find a single thing wrong with this book, I found myself fighting to get it read. I was constantly distracted by even the most minute of things. Maybe it's the fact that Cade is "dead inside" and continually shutting down. I enjoy the annoyingly sassy determination of Trina though. I like how she pushes and forces him to admit things he did not even realize. For once, I actually like the heroine more than the hero.
The secondary character fill the love/hate roles well. Chemistry was denied for nearly 1/2 the book, even though it was always simmering below the surface but when they came together, things got hot! The dialogue and interaction was good. There were some great catchy, witty moments. The plot was slow to get rolling but once it did, there was a sufficient amount of action, intrigue and flirtatious danger to keep you turning those pages. The climactic conflict and it's resolve were great! Most importantly, it was not predictable at every turn.
Overall rating: 3.9 / 5.0
I may re-read this story and look forward to other works by this author.
