"...the author clearly has a handle on the warning signs of emotional abuse--and Teresa is sympathetically drawn... A love story that skillfully shows that abusers don't need to use physical violence to control their victims."--Kirkus Reviews
"If a romantic suspense is on anyone's wish list, The Rebound Effect should be on that list."--InD'Tale Magazine
"The sense of danger and the high intensity of the emotions in this book keep you turning the pages...If you are looking for a domestic psychological suspense, this is a fast-paced high intensity read."--The Romance Reviews
"It was anything but a relaxing read, and my tension was constantly on high alert ...Ms. Griffin's writing style is personal, I was able to feel the characters were real, probably because I wanted to smack some sense into Teresa,"--Tome Tender Book Blog

In the small town of Cougar, struggling single mother and veterinary assistant Teresa Lansing is still bruised from a failed relationship when Frank McAllister sweeps her off her feet. Frank is a big-city SWAT officer who moved to Cougar only four months ago. He's handsome, charming, forceful, very sexy, and a bit mysterious. He had his eye on Teresa even before they met and is pushing for a serious relationship right away. Teresa finds his intense courtship flattering, and the sex is fabulous, but she doesn't want her deaf six-year-old son to be hurt again. Her former fiancé cheated on her when he got drunk after being unjustly fired, but he loves her and her son, and the whirlwind romance is complicated by his efforts to win Teresa back. And then there's the matter of the bodies buried at Big Devil Creek…
🤡 My REVIEW 🤡
First off this book reads more like a psychological thriller than a suspense/mystery romance but Wow what a complex, and suspenseful thriller it was. It will keep you turning pages far into the night. . I started and finished This book all in one day.I was shocked to learn that this is only the authors second book. It Caught my attention from the very first page and i could not turn the pages fast enough. I read mystery,crime & psychological thrillers all the time and this one kept me guessing right to the end. The characters are well developed, the plot well done and fast paced. The ending was totally mind blowing. Left me in total shock. I can not wait to read more books by this author. This is a book that every every single woman should read before they go on a date.

The Rebound Effect
This is one of the most original romantic suspense I’ve ever read. It reads more like a psychological thriller than a romantic suspense, which is fine but may mislead some readers. If they’re looking for a HEA, they may be disappointed.
What I loved most about The Rebound Effect was the accurate portrayal of an abuser. The manipulation, control, tracking tricks abusers use was clearly defined in this book. Teresa’s reactions and emotional angst rang true and added authenticity to the story. There were parts of the story where I gasped aloud, proving the suspense is well drawn out. The ending shocked me to my core. I wasn’t prepared for it.
If you’re looking for a suspenseful romantic thriller with a clear message for women everywhere, pick up The Rebound Effect today.
Disclaimer: I received a copy from the author in the hopes I'd review it.
My Rating: 4 stars
The synopsis does a really good job giving you an idea what this book is about. What it doesn’t tell you is that the reader isn’t left with a typical happily ever after. There is a twist that left me feeling like a pretzel with no book boyfriend to dream about. However, the story was uniquely refreshing.
The story was a well written attention-gripping page turner from beginning to end. Given the circumstances I will say that the heroine, Teresa, was really the only character that I related to with out giving away spoilers. She was the one consistent character through out the book.
I can say that this book is like no other that I’ve read. I’m pretty sure this is the shortest review that I’ve ever written but I’m limited to what I can say because I don’t want to spoil anything. Just go pick up a copy and find out for yourself why this book is one of a kind.
