My Review

Deadly Fallout by Katie Reus
Red Stone Security #10
Suspense Romance

Dr. Zoe Hansen had the perfect job as a hospital surgeon but it all fell apart when a male doctor began harassing her at work until it escalated in an attack. Zoe leaves the hospital and takes another job while her attacker gets off free and leaves the country. Zoe is finally starting to feel normal again when her attacker shows back up. Before he can be a problem he’s killed and it’s clear someone is trying to frame Zoe. Katie Reus keeps up the action in Deadly Fallout but I did think it was a bit out there for a stalker to have a stalker. That’s certainly something I haven’t seen before!

“What I feel for you is different than anything I’ve ever felt before. I can see a future with us.”

Ex-Navy SEAL, Sawyer McCabe has recently been hired at Red Stone Security and he’s instantly attracted to Zoe but their one interaction, years ago, involved a fight between Sawyer and Zoe’s brother back on the Teams. This creates some initial tension between them but it’s quickly resolved as Zoe and Sawyer let their chemistry take over. This felt shorter than prior Red Stone books and the relationship was a little rushed. Part of this comes from the interjection of other POVs for the stalker as well as Detective Durante who takes up page time. I would have preferred to see more time between Sawyer and Zoe.

That being said, I did really like the characters. Zoe has been through a lot and she’s been shouldering it almost completely on her own. She’s a very independent woman who doesn’t want to look vulnerable and weak so it’s hard for her to lean on Sawyer for help. As Zoe spends more time around Sawyer she realizes that having someone to depend on can make life a lot easier and happier. Zoe and Sawyer fall in love quickly and their chemistry is instant. Overall, a good read but not my favorite in the series.

Zoe’s stalker has been murdered…

Dr. Zoe Hansen was forced to leave her beloved hospital job to escape a stalker. It worked—or so she thought. She’s terrified when he reappears in her life one night—and stunned when he turns up viciously murdered soon after. She’s arrested for the crime, but she quickly clears her name. Unfortunately, her problems are far from over. She’ll have to accept the protection of the one man she shouldn’t want.

…now she’s in more danger than ever before.

Former Navy SEAL Sawyer McCabe might not know the gorgeous Zoe as well as he wants to, but he knows all about trouble. So when she’s threatened, he steps in to help her regardless of the consequences and gets her out of town. But it’s not enough to escape a determined killer. As the danger closes in they have to trust each other if they want to stay alive. And Sawyer’s determined to do whatever it takes to keep Zoe safe and in his arms. Because Zoe is worth risking everything for.
