Disillusioned by Christy Barritt | Book Review by Loraine Nunley

Synopsis of the book:

Nikki Wright is desperate to help her brother, Bobby, who hasn’t been the same since escaping from a detainment camp run by terrorists in Colombia. Rumor has it that he betrayed his navy brothers and conspired with those who held him hostage, and both the press and the military are hounding him for answers. All Nikki wants is to shield her brother so he has time to recover and heal.

But soon they realize the paparazzi are the least of their worries. When a group of men try to abduct Nikki and her brother, Bobby insists that Kade Wheaton, another former SEAL, can keep them out of harm’s way. But can Nikki trust Kade? After all, the man who broke her heart eight years ago is anything but safe…

Hiding out in a farmhouse on the Chesapeake Bay, Nikki finds her loyalties—and the remnants of her long-held faith—tested as she and Kade put aside their differences to keep Bobby’s increasingly erratic behavior under wraps. But when Bobby disappears, Nikki will have to trust Kade completely if she wants to uncover the truth about a rumored conspiracy. Nikki’s life—and the fate of the nation—depends on it.

My review:

A suspenseful ride that I really enjoyed being on. Lots of suspense as Nikki and Kade work to keep Bobby safe and find out the truth to clear his name. But is the truth what they hope it is? I thought I knew who the bad guy was, but then I didn’t, but then I should have. It made for a thrilling read.

I really enjoyed Kade Wheaton. He was a strong protective man who was loyal and had a lot of integrity. One mistake costs him his relationship with Nikki and he is pained by that but he moves past it to be there when she needs him most.

Nikki was strong and yet vulnerable at the same time. She had been through so much and now she was put into a position of having to trust Kade who she hasn’t forgiven for breaking her heart. She also struggled with her faith because of that. I loved that she was so loyal to her brother.

The suspense was good. This was one book that dared me to put it down. I have to say that I was mostly unable to answer that dare and I enjoyed that.

What I enjoyed most about this book:

The suspense that kept me reading when I really should have been putting the book down to do other things. I love with that happens.

What I didn’t like about this book:

I can’t really think of anything that I didn’t like about the story. Great job by the author.

My rating:  5 out of 5 stars

Would I recommend this book to others?  Definitely. Great suspense and good characters. This is the second book in the series. Characters from the first book show up, but I didn’t even realize this book was part of a series until I finished it, so it can definitely be read as a stand alone.

Note: I received this book in a giveaway. I was not required to give a positive review. All of the opinions I have expressed are my own.
