Christy Reece elivers another fantastic romantic suspenseChristy Reece is one of my favourite romantic suspense writers She has created a fictional security agency and manages to incorporate the perfect balance of action and romance into her stories I have been so looking forward to Gabe s story he is a tragically troubled character who needed his own happy ending and this was just what I wanted for him His relationship with Skylar was beautiful and exactly what I had hoped forThis book had me right from the beginning and The Gulag Handbook didn t let me go until it wasone If you are a fan of Cindy Gerard or Pamela Clare Christy Reece is The Beckoning Lady (Albert Campion definitely a writer you should read I m really pleased to have found this author and her Last Chance Rescue series If you enjoy top uality romantic suspense this isefinitely a series worth your timeAs much as I m not a fan of the big misunderstanding this one was really well one and actually had substance It was heartbreaking to think of the time Skye and Gabe lost particularly given the brilliant portrayal by the author of their reluctant longing for each otherThe suspense element was extremely strong too which I
Ve Come To Expect From come to expect from author The subject matter is never comfortable but the execution is always outstanding The balance between the romance and suspense was perfectA great entry in a strong series Great book but geez CR writes some really uncomfortable torturerape scenes She oesn t go into June Fourth Elegies details exactly but she puts theseepraved thoughts into your head For me it sometimes was a bit hard to get back into the romance after one of those scenariosI Baby and Child Vegetarian Recipes did love Gabe He s always been portrayed as a loner type uiet and gruff But we get to see some of his vulnerability here especially in terms of his fears He s not exactly brought to his knees by Skylar his estranged wife but he still can t stay away It was funny to me how he was actually relieved to have a good reason to stay and guard her when theust finally settled after their big reunionAs with Christy Reece s other LCR books I really connected with the characters no one was super annoying and there were plenty of blips and cameos from the other LCR operatives Solid read 35 stars I have a bit of a love hate relationship with Christy Reece She is no The Confabulist doubt an excellent writer Her stories are gritty and a little scary Her characters seem the same on the surface but when you scratch the surface they re allifferent Broken and vulnerable I want to get to know them I want them to succeed I want the bad guy to get caught I get caught up and can t book the books Der Illusionist downBut her bad guys are so very bad Her somewhat broken characters are so very broken They ve had such bad things happen in their past So I feel like the HEA you get at the end of the book is not enough They re not cured can t be The bad guys are still out there and those that were hurt are still hurtSo that s myilema This was a great book I want to read the next one so I can get story and find out what happens next But when I finished this book I was left feeling Enticing (PI Men to the Rescue down Just sad I ll have to read something else before I can continue with the series The fourth book in the Last Chance Rescue series by Christy Reece Loved it It had the right balance that I look for in Romantic Suspense My only regret is that Iidn t wait to read it until I had the entire series because now I have to wait I like Ms Reece s Last Chance Rescue booksThat said I had issues with this particular bookFirst one is that Gabe and Skylar Spring Comes to Sanctuary (Welcome to Sanctuary, didn t talk to each other view spoilerIf only they have talked about the horrible thing her father mother cousin haveone to them and explained to each other what have happened to each of them after the last time they saw each other it could have solved many many problems and it would have been the adult thing to Ask the Past do hide spoiler rating I became a fan of Christy Reece when Iiscovered her first trilogy last year featuring the men and women of The Last Chance Rescue organizationI had high hopes for Reece s latest entry but have to admit to being Riding Class (Saddle Club, disappointedNo Chance is billed as a romantic suspense but the suspense portion never had me thinking Oh My God I can t put this bookown or anxious to turn to the next page or make me want to stay up all night reading As for the romance the relationship between Skylar and Gabe left me feeling probably as frustrated as the two of them Finally the villain never felt truly evil but like a irty sick pervertThe story begins 8 years in the past where an innocent 20 year old wealthy socialite and famous DO OR DIE Skylar James told a lie to the man she married and eight years later she still bitterly regrets the eception Unknown to Skylar her husband Gabe Maddox now lives in the angerous shadows of eli.
