Resurrection by Katie Reus
Redemption Harbor #1
Faking her death and giving up everything was an easy choice for Skye when it meant protecting Colt from her blackmailer. But she never expected to come face to face with him and now that she has, she needs to find a way to protect him. Losing first his partner/lover and then one of his best friends, is almost more than Colt can bear. But when he hears a rumor that his friend might still be alive, he goes after her. He never expected someone would beat him to rescuing her, especially when that someone is supposed to be dead.
A great action-packed debut to the new Redemption Harbor series. Small thing but because this was the first in the series, there was a lot of set up for the future books. Katie Reus does a pretty good job of weaving in hints about their stories and history but it is a lot of characters to learn about. The drama was pretty minimal in this one and I liked that. Colt is hurt and upset when he first finds Skye again, but since they’re both in the spy world, he understands her choices. He forgives her pretty quickly and is just thankful to have her back.
“Because he was pretty damn sure there was no one else in the world like her. And even if he was also pretty damn sure she was a little crazy, he liked her brand of it.”
Skye was a great heroine who can take care of herself, kick some ass, and is willing to do anything for those she cares about. I loved watching her blow things up and take out the bad guys. Mercer and Mary Grace’s reunion was so sweet and heart warming. I can’t imagine losing the love of your life and then finding them again. They’re a really cute couple and I admit in the beginning, that I was more interested in their story than Skye and Colt.
This isn’t out of the norm for romantic suspense, but there was an awful lot of disregard for laws going on in this book. Now most of the guys getting killed were dangerous, bad guys but I just wanted to include it. This group of friends definitely has no problem letting the end justify the means.
3 out of 5 stars
She faked her own death… Skye Arévalo left the CIA and faked her death to protect Colt Stuart, the only man she ever loved. Months later, a brutal kidnapping draws her to quietly infiltrate a dangerous cartel. Just when she thinks she’s home free, things go horribly wrong and she escapes with bloodthirsty enemies on her heels…only to find herself face to face with a bewildered and angry Colt.
He’ll cross every line to save her… When Colt, a former Marine, finds out the woman he loved betrayed him, he’s shocked and hurt, but it doesn’t stop him from breaking every law on the books to keep her alive. Unfortunately, it might not be enough to stop a powerful enemy who will do anything to see the world burn and Skye dead.
