Title: Deadly Fallout
Author: Katie Reus
Stars 4 out of 5
Deadly Fallout is the 10th book in the Red Stone Security series. Since I am new to this series I was grateful to find I wasn’t lost with all the different characters and found myself interested in finding out more about the romance between the other characters.
Dr. Zoe Hansen worked as an ER doctor until another doctor couldn’t take no for an answer. She left not telling her family why and starts working for another medical practices where she was finally able to breathe until her stalker is murdered and she is arrested for the crime.
Former Navy Seal Sawyer McCabe joins Red Stone Security after retiring from the Navy Seals at the old age of 37. His first job is to watch Zoe’s back but soon find himself falling for the feisty doctor and decided to be able to keep her safe is to move her away from everyone she know and trust.
Deadly Fallout is a quick read with around 180 pages but from page one to page 180 you will be pulled into a hot fast romance with enough mystery to be called Romantic Suspense. The Author gives you a few twist and if you pay enough attention you will figure out who is the stalker when the person is introduced but at the same time the story moves forward keeping the reader engaged to find out the who and why. You find yourself caring for the people in Zoe’s life and grateful she is smart enough to know when to stay and when to move. I dislike the Romantic Suspense novels where you scream at the heroin who refuses to listen thankful Katie Reus writes Zoe who is strong but has a head on her shoulders.
What I felt the book was lacking was meat I personal desire in my Romantic Suspense novels with that being said this is a fast easy read to curl up on your couch for an afternoon. There is sex and more sex as well and language.

Review: Tiffany Snow takes the reader on an endless ride with action, romance, heart felt pain and mystery- everything you have come to know and love about Tiffany Snow is in this book. The author has the ability to take the reader on a visual mystery never once giving away too much until the right moment and every character has a reason for being in the book.
The protagonist is Ivy and to call her damaged would only be one side of her many faces. She has the ability to make you want to hug her, scream at her and tell her to run far away from Devon her mysterious Alpha male who has decided he is interested in her. Ivy’s past has made her damage because she can’t seem to find who she is without seeing the scared little girl she once was but as the book progressives she world sacrifice her own life to protect those she cares for and loves to the point of betrayal. Trust me you will scream at her a few times “Don’t Go There Stupid Girl” and she does go there.
Logan is Ivy’s best friend the only person in the book that seems to have a head on his shoulders but at the same time he makes Ivy Co-dependent on him. Logan is the friend that girls are always looking for but just like Devon there is more to Logan’s feelings for Ivy than just a friendship. He will do anything for her and Devon gets in a few jibs that make you question the past.
Devon, the mysterious man who Ivy meets at her place of work can’t seem to stay away from even though he puts her life in danger man times. Ivy knows that Devon is dangerous but for some crazy reason she can’t seem to run away from him again making herself Co-Dependent again on someone. My only complaint is I hate that he calls her luv -it drives me batty.
The mystery is exciting and will take the readers over the ocean and back home once again.
I would like to see Tiffany Snow help Ivy find her voice so she is able to stand on her own two feet. I want to see Ivy function without the need of a man or someone taking care of her and I hope the author can see that as well.
The reader will be given many sex scenes that I almost feel the book is 60-75% sex or leading to sex and 25% mystery, giving the book an unbalanced feeling towards the end. Tiffany Snow knows how to write sex scenes leaving the reader all hot and bothered.
The very end of the book will have you cringe but cheering at the same time. It’s the perfect book to cuddle up with a cup of something warm to realize you will not put it down until you turned the very last page
Beth Faraday started her teenage years a little different than most because at 16 she carried out her first hit for hire and since than has become on of the most feared assassins. Than one day after a job went south Beth decided to walk away and create a normal life for herself. She owns a condo, dates chefs but every night she still sleeps with a gun under her pillow. One night she realize the life she left behind has followed her to her new home and Beth is forced to flee the with follow MI6 agent back into the world she left behind with the support of her family.
Where to start this book has everything a suspense novel should have. Sexy Spies, really creepy villains, supportive family, exotic locations, smart dialog that keeps the story moving forward and enough action to keep the reader reading until the very last page and than will have the reader beg for more.
Beth is a well thought out character with flaws, big heart, and moment that will pull at your heart strings. Edie Harries created a character that will have the reading crying along side with as she struggles with her heart and mind. Everything about Beth is believable the way she enter acts with her brothers, sister and father. The way she converse with the MI6 agent and the way she struggles to survive and keep the life she has created. Edie Harris made Beth come off the pages to the point the readers feels as if they are in the room with her while she was getting tortured.
The author telling of Beth’s story amazing, well thought out and the characters popped off the page making the reader to want more even after the last page is turned.
The book has sex, swearing and violence which all seem to flow natural throughout the book. I will admit I am on pins and needles waiting for the next book in the series.
