Title: Blind Retribution
Author: K.T. Roberts
Stars: 2 out of 5
Blind Retribution couldn't seem to figure out what type of book it wanted to be. Crime, Cop book, Romantic suspense (I didn't read anything suspenseful) Mystery with slight romance where the leads are not really connected. I just couldn't connect with this book and struggled with Max and Cory.
K.T. Roberts wrote Cory and Max as if the characters were feeling this unbelievable connection but while I read the book I didn't get that feeling. Instead it felt disconnected at times and awkward at best.
Cory talks without thinking first sweet words of romance and Max being hard core cop seem to eat up the words but than question them the next. It just felt disconnected at the best of times.
I found myself speed reading the last 55% of the book just wanting to figure out the killer hoping maybe there would be a last minute twist but instead its is what the reader expected.
The entire story felt disconnected, lack of emotions and boring at times. I finished the book after 3 days of struggling though it.
Sex and Violence fit the book are not graphic in fact I would call it simple, fast and done.
Advance Copy from netgalley for my honest thoughts.
It should have been an open-and-shut case. When a car bomb explodes, taking with it the wife of a prominent heart surgeon, NYPD detective Maxine Turner is sure she has arrested the right suspect—until Cory Rossini, a private investigator, begins muddying the waters. Max already has enough to deal with: her longtime partner is retiring, her latest case is suddenly anything but simple, and she now has a troubling attraction to a man who is proving to be annoyingly persistent.
Having taken on the task of proving his friend’s innocence, Cory isn’t about to drop the ball—no matter how distractingly beautiful he finds the detective assigned to the investigation. When his sleuthing turns up other homicides connected to the cardiology department, including a young woman whose throat has been slit, he convinces Max that they should work together. And as they delve further into the vicious murders, they search for the one lead that will steer them straight to a killer
