(I work for the author.)
Former small-town football hero turned cop, Joe Kessler never met a linebacker, perp, or a woman he couldn't handle. Then a troubled single mom walks into his life, and the only place this hot jock will ever see 'easy' again is in the dictionary.
Hiding out in Broslin, PA was working pretty well for Wendy Belle until Cop Casanova took her under his protection. Now she’ll either lose her life to one man, or her heart to another.
Deathblow is Dana Marton's 4th book in her popular Broslin Creek series, following the romantic suspense adventures of the men of the Broslin Creek Police Department. I love this series for its fast-paced action, menacing atmospheres and dangerous situations, and the smart, sexy heroes and strong, capable heroines. Add to that the sense of familiarity and community I get as a reader returning to the small town of Broslin Creek, and this is series makes me one happy reader.
Joe Kessler is a great hero - he's got a love-em and leave-em background dating back to his teenage years, but there's a lot more to this guy than his good looks and easygoing nature. He is genuinely a good man, and respects women just as much as he has loved them in the past. When he meets Wendy, he is immediately attracted to her, never realizing how much more there is to her than her cool, beautiful, professional-model exterior. When the two of them are forced together under stressful circumstances (Joe is assigned as her bodyguard when Wendy is being abused and stalked by her creepy ex-husband), they see past the surface and lust turns into admiration and respect.
Deathblow is probably the fastest-paced book of the series (all of which, by the way, can easily be understood and enjoyed as stand-alone novels), and the author really increased her cliff-hanger moments. There are several scenes where as a reader we're left hanging But it worked like an incredible teaser for me, I HAD to keep reading. As readers, we were left out of the loop a bit and it really heightened the suspense - I could definitely see it as a movie!
Incredibly suspenseful, super sexy, fast pace and believable, likeable characters make this a must read!
