  • Suspenseful romantic thriller...

    After the breakup of her last boyfriend, Teresa is more cautious when it comes to dating. She’s not only protecting her heart but her deaf young son too. So when she first meets Frank, she plays it cool. He comes on strong, though, and she’s attracted to him. Before she can figure out her own feelings, he pushes for a serious relationship. The sex is great but there’s something about Frank she can’t quite put her finger on. Her ex-boyfriend is also back in her life and is trying to win her back. Lines between hero and villain are blurred and poor Teresa is caught in the middle. Feeling like a scared rabbit caught in a snare, she realizes too late she’s about to become the murderer’s next victim. This is one of the most original romantic suspense I’ve ever read. It reads more like a psychological thriller than a romantic suspense, which is fine but may mislead some readers. If they’re looking for a HEA, they may be disappointed. What I loved most about The Rebound Effect was the accurate portrayal of an abuser. The manipulation, control, tracking tricks abusers use was clearly defined in this book. Teresa’s reactions and emotional angst rang true and added authenticity to the story. There were parts of the story where I gasped aloud, proving the suspense is well drawn out. The ending shocked me to my core. I wasn’t prepared for it. If you’re looking for a suspenseful romantic thriller with a clear message for women everywhere, pick up The Rebound Effect today. My Rating: 4 stars

  • A spellbinding story

    Reviewed by Joanie Chevalier for Readers' Favorite In The Rebound Effect by Linda Griffin, when Teresa Lansing meets SWAT officer Frank McAllister, a spark between the two strangers immediately ignites. Teresa is enamored with the handsome, somewhat mysterious new man in town. As their dating life heats up, Teresa is torn between being smitten with Frank to wondering why she is hesitant about moving forward. Her best friend wavers between telling her to be careful and calling Frank a potential abuser to advising her to move forward as long as she is happy. There is the added suspense of the local news about murdered women, and the suspense lasts until the very last page of The Rebound Effect. The Rebound Effect by Linda Griffin is a suspenseful psychological thriller that did not disappoint. I read this story within a few days, not being able to put it down. I was riveted from the first page to the last. It flowed well, with plenty of suspense and moments of nail-biting as I read with anticipation of things to come. It was apparent almost from the beginning that Frank McAllister, the handsome and mysterious new guy to small-town Cougar, was a control freak. He wanted absolute control of Teresa Lansing, the vet assistant who was trying to move on from her cheating ex-boyfriend. When things became to get tense for Teresa, she started to pull back from her new relationship and Frank did not appreciate this new turn of events. Trying to balance her relationship with Frank, keeping her ex-boyfriend at arms’ length, and caring for her young son, events start to turn frenzied and out of control. The last third of the book was the perfect crescendo to this spellbinding suspense story.
