Love on the Line #3
By Kari Lemor
Releasing December 5th, 2017
In Fatal Evidence (Love on the Line #3) by Kari Lemor, Scott Holland wants the rundown mill that's up for sale, but the only way he's going to be able to secure it is to become partners with heiress Heather Silva. Investing together should be easy enough, but it appears someone is looking to cause trouble for the pair with the site plagued with mysterious incidents. Yet, with the danger closing in on them and Scott being wary of Heather's privileged background, will he be able to let go of the past to achieve happy ever after with the woman he's falling in love with; or will they lose their chance at happiness because of a grisly discovery that could paint a huge target on both their backs?
Ms. Lemor's writing just keeps getting more and more impressive, and with this third book of her Love on the Line series, she takes the series to another level with an amazing amount of edge-of-your-seat suspense and sizzling romance that left me wanting more of Scott and Heather, as each incident becomes more and more terrifying. Will the hero and heroine give up on their investment or will they fight back against the person determined to keep them away from the rundown mill they're looking to renovate?
The way this story started had me liking the hero's reaction to the heroine, as he's not expecting her to be where he is and he's determined to discover what she's up to. Will Heather admit the truth? Will Scott be able to handle her answer? However, it was from the moment the hero and heroine came face-to-face for the first time in this story that had me completely hooked, as Scott and Heather have quite the interesting history with what they've been through with his cousin and her best friend in the previous book of this series that had them calling a truce, even though Scott is wary of the fact that Heather is a rich girl and he's had more than enough of wealthy people in his life, especially with what happened with his previous girlfriend and what happened to his family that landed him going to live with his aunt and uncle.
As for the dialogue, it was well-written; highly entertaining; and a wonderful combination of intense moments because of all the hero and heroine go through in this book because of the trouble someone is causing for them and teasing banter that had me absolutely charmed by this couple's growing relationship as the heroine does her best to win the hero's trust and the hero does his best to fit into her world and do everything he can to protect her from the person determined to hurt them. Moreover, both the main characters are incredible and I loved how this author proved without a shadow of a doubt that opposites really do attract and that no obstacle can keep them apart.
With Heather, she's resilient, courageous, worked hard to be the independent woman she is and I liked how determined she was to prove once and for all to her parents that she doesn't need their wealth to be successful or happy. I also liked that she was just as protective of Scott as he was of her, which is proven by everything they go through that has Heather willing to be by Scott's side every step of the way including the moment he's accused of something terrible and lands somewhere he shouldn't have ended up. Yet, what I liked most of all about the heroine was her stubbornness and her absolute determination to win the hero's trust. Will Scott ever be able to fully trust Heather? Will Scott ever be seen as good enough for Heather by the people that matter most to her?
While Scott, he's been through so much in his past with always feeling second best and I could understand why he feels threatened by his cousin when it comes to the family business and what it could mean for him now that his cousin has taken his rightful place in the company. I also liked how strong and brave the hero was in handling everything thrown at him, no matter how difficult the situation he lands in is for him to deal with because of things that happened to him in his past. Yet, what I liked most of all about the hero is the hero's determination to protect the heroine and that he did everything he could to make sure she comes out on top against the battle they face with the bad guy. What will Scott do to make sure Heather doesn't become a killer's next victim?
Overall, Ms. Lemor has delivered an utterly captivating and intense read in this book where the secondary characters entertained me just as much as the main ones; the chemistry between this couple was powerful; the romance explodes onto the pages with plenty of sizzle once the heroine stops fighting the fact that their business partners and shouldn't get involved; and the ending was a tad nail-biting because of what the main characters go through. Will they get out of the terrible situation they find themselves in? Will they get the chance to see the bad guy behind bars for what he's done in the past and for all the trouble he's caused the hero and heroine? However, it was the last chapter that wrapped this story up perfectly, as Scott is determined to prove to Heather how much he wants her in his life. I would recommend Fatal Evidence by Kari Lemor, if you enjoy romantic suspense, the opposites attract trope, or books by authors AJ Nuest, Allison B. Hanson, Michelle Hauf and Laura Griffin.
