My Review

Protecting His Witness by Katie Reus
Red Stone Security #7
Suspense Romance

Vincent Hansen’s heart was broken when Jordan Alvarado walked out on him. Believing that she didn’t love him, Vincent moved on and never looked back so he’s shocked when she shows up in Miami outside his house. 7 years ago, Jordan’s eye witness account helped stop a serial murderer but it also meant she had to go into the Witness Protection program. Leaving Vincent was the hardest thing she ever did and all she wants is to apologize, but when she’s targeted Vincent can’t walk away.

I enjoyed Protecting His Witness but overall, it didn’t stand out for me. The action was fast paced and the suspense was excellent as always with the perfect amount of romance thrown in. Initially, I worried that there would be a lot of focus on Vincent’s anger toward Jordan but I was happily surprised by how quickly things worked out. Others may have disliked it but considering why Jordan disappeared, I felt that Vincent couldn’t hold onto his anger forever. I do wish that Jordan had moved on a bit more after 7 years but instead she’s pretty much stayed devoted to Vincent. I can understand that in the first few years because I’m sure she hoped to go back home but after so much time it just seems a bit unrealistic. I did appreciate that Jordan never criticizes Vincent for moving on and sleeping with other women.

Both Vincent and Jordan were such passionate people and they really fit each other so well. When Jordan first shows up again you can feel all the emotions they’re both going through and Katie Reus does a fantastic job of pushing that emotion into the reader. One element that really jumped out to me was Vincent’s sister, Zoe, who really made an impression on the page. I can’t wait to get to her book in the series.

3 out of 5 stars
