Title: Calculated Risk (A Bree and Tanner Thriller #1)
Author: Janie Crouch
With all Harlequin Intrigue series the stories are fast paced, backgrounds have to be filled in though out the story. Bree background is interesting and while the author had only so many words to fill in her background I wish she had more space to fill in Bree and her Moms life. Sometimes Bree's actions fit the story line and other times it feels like something is missing.
Tanner is a protector and wants to help while romancing a woman he find to be trouble. He is your typical Harlequin Alpha male.
I loved the company that is able to find anyone using a smart phone and what their plans are for the future. The ending is fast pace and ends. Leaving readers either wishing there were more pages or future stories of Bree and Tanner.
The new mom part of the story is true including the sleepless lights and falling asleep anywhere and everywhere. The supporting characters are will written each with a purpose and a reason for being in the story.
Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher Harlequin Intrigue for the advance copy Janie Crouch Calculated Risk.
