KEEP HER SAFE – K.A. Tucker (out now!)
Check back for the collective #CJSReads2018 thoughts 🙂
My Thoughts: 4/5 stars!
Before starting KEEP HER SAFE, I had never read anything else by K.A. Tucker. I was going into this one expecting a thriller, which this definitely was, but I wasn’t expecting the romance element to it. When I later went to the book store on release day to find a copy, I had the hardest time finding it, but I eventually found it hiding in the romance section. If you want your thriller without a side of romance, then this might not be fore you, but I definitely enjoyed it!
Noah has enjoyed a very comfortable life, and this is all thanks to his highly decorated chief of Police mother. All of that comes crashing down when a skeleton from her closest comes out. One that she’s been hiding for years – and she begins to succumb to the overwhelming guilt of what she did.
Gracie’s life was flipped upside down when her father, a corrupt cop, was killed in a drug deal gone wrong. She and her mother have learned to survive on their own and avoid any harassment about her father. Until one day, an unexpected visitor arrives, and her quiet life comes to a halt.
This book was definitely more on the lighter end of the spectrum when it comes to a thriller. As I’m sure for other readers of the thriller genre, it’s always nice to have a lighter suspense to cleanse things, and this is exactly what I needed! The romance wasn’t too overwhelming, but it’s definitely there. Tucker did a fantastic job reeling me in and keeping me turning the pages to find out the truth!
Overall, if you’re looking for a lighter suspense novel, then KEEP HER SAFE should definitely be on your TBR! I loved Tucker’s writing style and I’m already keeping my eyes peeled for more from her.
