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 finds himself falling for the feisty doctor and decides that 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 a strong story line that I personally 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.

She’s terrified when he reappears in her life one night—and stunned when he turns up viciously murdered soon after. She’s arrested for the crime, but she quickly clears her name. Unfortunately, her problems are far from over. She’ll have to accept the protection of the one man she shouldn’t want.
…now she’s in more danger than ever before.
Former Navy SEAL Sawyer McCabe might not know the gorgeous Zoe as well as he wants to, but he knows all about trouble. So when she's threatened, he steps in to help her regardless of the consequences and gets her out of town. But it’s not enough to escape a determined killer. As the danger closes in they have to trust each other if they want to stay alive. And Sawyer’s determined to do whatever it takes to keep Zoe safe and in his arms. Because Zoe is worth risking everything for.
