Book Review-‘His True Love’ By Lynn Chantale 4 Intriguing Stars!! + Giveaway (Mystery/Romance)

Kim’s Review 4 ‘intriguing’ read more stars!

Thank you to Silver Dagger Book Tours for my free copy in exchange for an honest review. Well, damn what have I stumbled on here!! What a read. You know, I was drawn in from page one and I read this in one whole sitting. A wonderful bite sized mystery/crime/romance novella of just 100 pages. I would read the next one in the series for sure. Let’s get into the review.

Story-line/ plot – I was pulled in by the blurb and cover of this book. I honestly expected the romance and love element to be connected to the victims of the crime, but it’s not! Here we have three detectives two men and a woman, who are lovers! Yes!! This kinda shocked me and kept me turning pages, as they are a team of lovers fighting crime. This made some very steamy reading in some parts that I really enjoyed. But it’s not overly explicit at all, all tasteful sex scenes and there are not too many so that’s cool, there is more plot than sex, which I loved.

The plot is quick moving, I loved that the author put the reader right in the middle of the action, from page one. I found that I had to focus, pay attention and read closely to get to grips with the crime and who did what. In all honesty, I really enjoyed the pace, plot, and unexpected relationship with the detectives.

The crime is solved, and they find the ‘bad guy’ by working together. I’m not one for spoilers, I won’t say too much, but we follow the ‘bad guy’ and readers are aware of him. But the story plays out as us readers following the detectives trying to piece together the crime. I liked this.

Characters- I liked them all really, the three detectives, the woman captured and everyone.  They were all believable too. The female detective is full of balls and fearless, and the male ones very protective as her, as she is used as bait to solve the crime- no spoilers.

The only thing I would have loved is more  character development on the ‘bad guy.’ I would have loved to know more about him, and the relationship he had with his girlfriend, which caused him to do the things he did.  I would have also liked to know more about Heather,after the detectives found her, what happened to her? Now when a reader wants to know more this is never a bad thing! They are truly engaged in the story. With the character line up, I was. The characters are also very multi-cultural and diverse also, this I really loved.

Overall for me I felt as first time reader of this author’s work I feel that His True Love is a great start to a detective series. And it left me wanting to read the next one, the story ends with another case for the detectives to follow up, and when it’s released  I would love to read it. The story flows well, with interesting characters and for sure it’s an intriguing read, as you have the sub-plot of romance with the detectives. I really liked it, pages turned quickly for me.

I feel in all honesty, if the story was just padded out a tiny bit more with details on the ‘bad guy’, the lady who was captured- Heather and found that would have been ideal! But even without this, it’s a good read.  Four intriguing and engaging stars from me. I recommend it to those who like mystery an detective stories with a difference! This is not your average read, it’s truly different with the detective’s love affair. Great start to a series, let’s have more!

After being betrayed by RLIP, she decides to cut ties with them permanently and move on to a normal life. So when she’s asked to return to the agency to help with a difficult case, her immediate answer is no. However, she soon discovers that the case involves the kidnapping of her former partner’s teenaged grandson, Paul Spencer. There’s no way she can stay away and sit quietly.
Paul was being groomed to become a future tech agent, but having computer hacking skills of his caliber at such a young age may have exposed him to a dangerous cybercrime ring that wants to use him for something life shattering. The agency suspects that Paul’s computer club classmates may have been the associated link. Faith is the only agent young enough to pass as a high school student and must befriend Paul’s classmates to find out what’s going on. But when politicians suddenly get involved, this case may be far more twisted and dangerous than she initially realized. On top of everything else, RLIP seems to be attempting to recruit Faith’s new husband, Ashton Mathis, into the agency.

Kim’s Review- ‘Kill For You’

5 ‘Outstanding Character Development’ Stars!!

Thank you to Silver Dagger Tours for my free copy in exchange for a honest review.

Well of course I’d be drawn to this book, the genre, the blurb, the man in a suit on the front it all screams ‘Kim’s read’ really. And it did not disappoint one bit!! In all honesty, I am so proud to have this author representing the romantic suspense genre. Here’s what I enjoyed.

Character development– Boy, can this author craft an alpha-male  (that’s not a dick, and come across as not very nice. ) The whole male line up is just tooooooooooo dieeeeeeeeeee for! In one shape or form I swear to God, I tell no lies here. I found the main character Octavio to be very believable, authentic and hot! His co-workers and the other guys who he worked with in the plot, were all just as hot and enjoyable to meet.The same for the females, Faith is just adorable and so strong. Overall I felt that this author did a great job with developing a strong male lead, and a believable female lead that has experienced major trauma.

Now the ‘bad guys’, to me they were also really enjoyable to read and very well developed.

Plot and Pace- it moves quickly, has twists and turns and one very unexpected change for Faith. I never saw it coming ( no spoilers). It was beautiful to read, and nice that it was an outside of the box twist too. The whole plot ties together nicely, it felt almost like reading not just romantic suspense, but also a detective story, as we readers ‘get to the bottom of the mystery’ around Faith.

Reality-  I must say, I found this plot to be very realistic, it touches on abuse and the  human sex and slave trade. It tied in very well with Faith’s  plot twist I mentioned. So not only for me as a reader did I feel the characters were extremely believable, so was the plot, reality, likelihood of things happening. It all left me with no doubts over the character’s motives and actions. It touches on drugs, crime, and gang related activities also. Just brilliantly executed.

Overall, five wonderful, well written and enjoyable stars from me. Romantic suspense fans you don’t wanna miss this one, I’m just sayin’.  I would read more of this author’s work. I have the next one on my kindle, and gutted I can’t read it in time for the end of her book tour, but trust I’ll be reading it!! I wish Author Ayden K. Morgen all the best with her career, and may her pen take over the genre by storm!
