Title: Redemption River (Men of Mercy #1)
Author: Lindsay Cross
Stars: 3 1\2
I totally struggled with this book because it reminded me of another series by Lynn Raye Harris but lacked something to completely pull me into the book. I felt the story was written around Hunter and Evie having sex, thinking of sex or her beautiful mouth wrapped around his cock.
Hunter was too good to be true and Evie was just sometimes to damaged for my taste
The bad guys were bad and the readers cheer for their demise.I think I might have cheered a little at certain points in the book.
A lot and I mean A LOT of characters were introduced because it is the first in a series but man their is a lot that pop in and out of the book. Not really having a purpose other than to let the readers know they would have a book later down the road.
There were a few grammars errors with the yours and You're but hey we all make that mistake. This isn't the official published copy.
The author also uses a lot of Metaphors to describe things like "...voice rolled with enough menace to make Ted Bundy cringe"
I wasn't in love with this book but I didn't hate it either. I personal like a little less think of sex and having sex in my military romance novels.
If you like the H.O.T. series by Lynn Raye Harris you will enjoy this series as well.
Received Advance from Netgalley for my honest review
