Having faked her own death to get away from her dangerous occupation, Sabrina Snow suddenly realizes someone knows she’s still alive and that someone is out to make her truly dead. Suspecting the maniacal Russian Shaitan (for Satan), Sabrina runs to her only hope of help, former Navy Seal, John Galloway who is holed up on Outlaw Ridge. What kind of reception will she get from muscle man Galloway? Their last interaction over two years ago did not end well, even though they had been romantically linked. What ensues is a fast-paced, action-packed conflict between the good guys and the bad.
This stand-alone novel, second in Reeves’ Outlaw Ridge series, pulls in the reader and keeps the momentum at high level. As old problems resurface, the outcome of the couple’s steamy relationship is always in question. Reeves keeps the reader guessing as Sabrina struggles to hide life-changing secrets from John.
If you like romantic suspense laced with tight tension, sympathetic characters and a swift pace, Dead Heat will leave you fully satisfied.
Joan Reeves delivers the scenes so well that you live it with the characters, finding yourself running for all you’re worth, to coming to a dead stop, caught in the throes of the memory of desire.
This second book in the series stands alone very well, well enough that new readers will want to go back and read the first one, if nothing else, for the adrenaline rush. But they’ll also find it difficult letting go of these characters and want see what set these people in motion.
And for those who love body-heat, that’s delivered with some serious Fahrenheit’s, too. It’s sensuous and sexy, a blend of desire and passion balanced to perfection.
If you love suspense, and you also enjoy your romantic suspense served up with a high heat level, this book won’t disappoint.
Sabrina Snow is bad-ass ! She is smart, sexy, suave, seductive,combat-trained (didn't I say bad-ass??) and yet soft, sensitive, vulnerable at the same time. And as far as John is concerned, doesn't Navy Seal say it all ? Yah, his name is a little traditional, but that man is packed with moves, in action and in love !
As I already mentioned, the book had me at 'Sabrina stocking herself up with weapons'.
She thrust her feet into her hiking boots, and grabbed her Glock from the the nightstand. Her combat knife was in it's Kydex sheath above her right ankle. A spare knife, along with a double-stack magazine for her Glock, was on a webbing waist around her waist.
Hot damn ! This woman was born ready !
Right, so the books starts with Sabrina escaping from hit men sent to capture her and she realizes she is going to need help if she is going to survive the man who's chasing her, Shaitan. Her heart and mind have no doubt that only John can help her. But, she is not sure if he will. Because they had a sexy, almost love affair, and it ended messy and hurtful. So, she decides to surprise him at his current residence at an isolated place in Texas. Damn, this lady is slick ! She knows how to break-in the property and lies in wait for it to get darker. I loved to read how John immediately knew someone was trespassing. Their chemistry was phenomenal ! So, they push and pull, throw some blame (only John does), you know the usual mating ritual..till they are right on the bed, and John realizes that there is more to it than what Sabrina is willing to share.
John then comes to know of a message which Sabrina was hiding in his house, in case she does not survive Shaitan. That secret raises the stakes in this game of cat and mouse, and suddenly Shaitan has the upper hand. John enlists his brother's help and gathers all intel on the situation which Sabrina has found herself in. Though I must say, I expected more from Shaitan at the end, there was some action, but things ended pretty easily for the villain.
Ofcourse, there is all kisses and roses from here onward, family reunions, getting to know the family etc etc. I would have given it a 5, but the end of Shaitan was a little bland for me, for all the hoopla around him being ruthless and being able to track her anywhere, he sure seemed unplanned and unprepared in the final encounter.
Thank you NetGalley and Season Publishing for generously sharing the ARC in exchange for my honest review
I really enjoyed this story - it would be a great "beach book" or "airport book" when you need something captivating and fun!
Dead Heat by Joan Reeves was well written and from the start, I was rooting for the main characters to sort their stuff out and resume their relationship. The plot was a little predictable, but it was still very entertaining. I give this 4 stars out of 5.
