Deadly Pursuit by Irene Hannon | Book Review by Loraine Nunley @lorainenunley

Synopsis of the book:

Social worker Alison Taylor has a passion for protecting children. But now it seems she needs protection. When her tormentor’s attentions take a violent turn, she calls in reinforcements — her police-detective brother, Cole, and his new partner, ex-Navy SEAL Mitch Morgan. As her relentless stalker turns up the heat and the danger intensifies, Mitch takes a personal interest in the case. Because protecting Alison has become more than a job; his future depends on keeping her safe.

My review:

The suspense and romance are balanced and page-turning. I loved the connection between Alison and Mitch right from the start. It was sweet and sizzling at the same time.

This review was difficult for me to write. I absolutely loved the romance and the suspense, but I really did not like the villain. He was so evil that I put the book down and considered whether or not I should finish it. The story, with its romance and suspense, pulled at me to pick it back up.

Alison was a wonderfully independent and compassionate person. Her faith was strong even though she had been through trauma before we met her. She deserved a happy ending and Mitch was perfect for her.

Mitch was everything a hero should be — strong and capable but not afraid to explore a relationship with the right woman. He struggled with faith and I enjoyed how Alison’s influence pushed him to explore a relationship with God

What I enjoyed most about this book:

The immediate attraction with Alison and Mitch coupled with the wisdom to not jump into the relationship.

What I didn’t like about this book:

I really wanted to give this story 5 stars, but the evilness of the villain was more than I wanted to read.

My rating:  4 out of 5 stars

Would I recommend this book to others? That’s a tough one. This villain is really bad. If you are sensitive to the darker side of suspense, I wouldn’t recommend it. The writing is really good and the evil made me pretty emotional so if you can handle the darkness, it is well done. This is the second book in the series and reads well as a standalone.
