First, the good:
Now for the irksome moments:
All that said, and given how romantic suspense is my least favorite category within the romance genre, I was pleasantly surprised by this read. And for me, a “hey, it didn’t suck” rating means it’s probably a 5-star read for normal people who enjoy romantic suspense. Fans of the genre should give it a try.
Full disclosure: we received an ARC from the author free of charge.
Does this book contribute to or help crush the romance stigma?
Just because some parts of it weren’t my cuppa, it’s actually doing a great deal to crush the romance stigma. Kudos!
Other reading suggestions
I can’t say that I have any recommendations for beta heroes in romantic suspense. But I really enjoyed the STEM heroine in Scarlett Cole’s Under Fire.
