    Great action scenes but I wanted more insight

    Leap of faith is a bit hard to review. I really enjoyed some aspects of it, but was thrown off enough by other elements that it never fully captured my attention. I enjoy romantic suspense and police procedurals- on TV and in books- so this title should be a perfect match. In terms of the action scenes and the crime plotline, it was. However, I always felt like I was behind or in the dark. Not in the fun, suspense-filled or plot twist way, but in that questioning, lost sense where you wonder if you missed a chapter or two. Twice I checked to see if this was part of a series or maybe a spin-off of a series because there were references to past scenarios, cases, or developing relationships between the heroes and within the security firm where the heroes work. While these mentions established a history between the characters, it never fully divulged the details to the reader and ultimately meant I never connected fully with the story or characters. The romance was handled similarly. There were clear feelings between Kieran and Joel and the chemistry was palpable, but the romance was relegated to a subplot. Normally, I’d be okay with this because I like the suspense and investigative portions of the plot so much, but the lack of detail and mentions of previous interactions within both Kieran and Joel’s partnership and personal relationship compiled to leave me even more frustrated and feeling like I missed something major. Although I struggled a lot with the lack of background and details setting up the scenes and relationships, I did find the characters interesting. I just wish I knew or understood more of their nuances and the scenarios that led to the current state of the case and Joel and Kieran’s relationship. The case itself and the idea of Kieran’s past work with the DEA coming into play were definitely intriguing, but again, I wanted more. My favorite part of the book was definitely the action scenes. They were done really well- the pace reflected the suspense and excitement and everything read clearly enough to envision things as they unfolded. I think if the characters and plot were a bit more developed in front of the reader rather than hinted at, I would have really loved Leap of Faith. As this is my first experience with the author and I did like the base personalities of the characters and plotline, I may try the second in the series to see if things come together a bit more. *Reviewed for Alpha Book Club*

    it whoops you, upside the head!

    Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. Kieran and Joel have worked together for 4 years. They have each loved the other for the same amount of time but neither wanted to ruin what they had. But when both man get caught up in something that nearly costs them both their lives, all bets are off. This sort of creeps up on you, and slaps you upside the head when you aren't looking! It starts off slow, and then rapidly increases speed till we are at rocket speed and I loved this book! Its seemed only short, the some 125 pages, according to Goodreads, but Amazon tags it with 205 pages, but it packs a powerful punch. Both men have suffered, and both have learned the other soothes their soul. Joel won't sleep till Kieran is close by, and Kieran's nightmares are held back by Joel's simply telling him he's there. And this is BEFORE they get their act together and admit how they feel. It does get a little.....messy, when Kieran gets caught snooping, and when they are talking about what happened the week before. That's why I've filed it as darker/grittier. Its painful reading, but only because of the subject matter, not how its written. There is a cast of supporting characters whom I hope will appear in future books, not least Joel's dad and uncle. Oh and the doctor who helps them. OH!! the doctor and the uncle, now that would be great!! I really don't care who appears in future books, I just want to read them. I've read The Power of Zero books, one through three, and I loved them. This is on a par with them. so, because it whoops you upside the head outta nowhere.. 5 full stars
