Redemption Harbor #2
By Katie Reus
Releasing September 26th, 2017
In Savage Rising (Redemption Harbor #2) by Katie Reus, years ago Olivia made mistakes she wished she hadn't. Now her past is coming back to haunt her and unless she finds a way to work alongside Zac Savage, she'll have no hope of overcoming the trouble that's coming. However, with the clock ticking and danger closing in, Olivia and Zac may find themselves in too deep. Will Zac be able to protect Olivia from the danger, or will their happy ever after be thwarted?
With the first book of this series utterly engaging and getting to know several of the secondary characters in it, I couldn't wait to read what would happen next for the Redemption Harbor crew and learn more about their bond, and I've got to say that this story does not disappoint. Really, it was extremely entertaining, fast-paced and had me on the edge-of-my-seat when Olivia and Zac face the danger they do. The way this story started sets the fast-pace of this story and had me hooked, as Zac is full of surprises with what he's done in his life. However, it was from the moment the heroine was introduced into this story that had me reading quickly, determined to discover whether Zac and Olivia would be able to find a way to work together, considering the way they meet and Olivia's need to defend herself when it comes to Zac judging her.
As for the dialogue, it was intense due to everything this couple go through such as whether Olivia still is as good as she once when it comes to the skills needed to pull off the job someone wants her for. However, the dialogue isn't all intense. There are moments that warmed my heart, especially when Zac interacts with the heroine's daughter and when the main and secondary characters are conversing. Moreover, the heroine is resilient, courageous and I liked how determined she was to protect those she cares about, even if it means putting herself in danger and the possibility of being caught by those that could put her in jail. I also liked how good of a mother she was and that she would do anything for her daughter, even if it meant making contingency plans if things didn't go her way when it came to working with the bad guys she was forced to work with.
While Zac, he's been through a lot in his life and it's understandable why he doesn't do relationships since his mother didn't set the best example when it came to finding happiness. I also liked the bond between the hero and the heroine's daughter, which was adorable, especially when Zac does something really nice for her when it comes to something she'll miss. Yet, what I liked most of all about the hero is how protective he was of the heroine and how determined he was to win the heroine over, even though he tried to deny what was between the pair to those he trusted most.
Overall, Ms. Reus has penned another exciting and thrilling ride in this story where the chemistry between this couple was strong, stimulating and had me wondering how long it would take Zac to win the heroine over completely; and where the romance was nicely-detailed and had me loving every moment as Zac showed Olivia that she could trust him. The way this story ended had me concerned for both the main characters because of the trouble they face, but I loved how the epilogue wrapped things up perfectly, as Olivia and Zac deserve all the happiness they've achieved. I would recommend Savage Rising by Katie Reus, if you enjoy romantic suspense or books by authors Katie Ruggle, Melinda Leigh, Kendra Elliott and Susan Stoker.
