It was just one moment.

It was just one mistake.

For years, men have been disappearing. A father in North Carolina. A boater in California. A hiker in Arkansas. And more, scattered across the United States. The FBI knows who’s responsible: a serial killer they caught, a man they sent young profiler Cole Kennedy to interrogate. But then the killer escaped, leaving the FBI in chaos and Cole’s psyche in tatters.

Eight years later, Cole’s life has changed. He’s found the man of his dreams, and he’s moved to Iowa to be with Special Agent Noah Downing, leaving the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit and the murderers behind.

Or so he thought.

An attack on the backroads of Iowa shatters the FBI, and in the aftermath, they uncover the signature of the last man they expect: the killer who got away. Now he’s hunting Noah, and the BAU descends on Des Moines, sending Cole back on the psychological chase.

To catch the only man who has ever beaten him, Cole will have to delve inside the killer’s mind. It’s a place he barely survived before, and the deeper he goes, the more horrors await. And though Noah is ordered to back off the investigation, he won’t leave Cole to face this darkness alone.

If Cole has any hope of saving the man he loves, he must unravel the killer’s twisted profile and follow his trail of death… even when it leads him into the marrow of his worst nightmares.

READ MY REVIEW

Blurb

It was just one night.

It was just one mistake.

FBI Agent Noah Downing had questions about his sexuality that a single night in Vegas should have answered. But dawn finds him on a plane back to Iowa, back on the trail of a vicious serial killer who disappeared six years ago and has suddenly resurfaced. There’s nothing like a murder investigation to escape an existential crisis.

FBI profiler Cole Kennedy is still reeling after finding a heart-stopping connection with a seemingly perfect man, only for him to vanish. When he’s sent to Iowa to profile the killer terrorizing America’s heartland, he finds more questions than answers – both about the murderer and about Noah, the last man he ever expected to see again.

A twisted secret stretches between Cole and Noah, tangled with questions they both have about each other. But now, thrown together, they’ll have to unravel the killer’s profile and follow his trail… back to the very beginning, to where everyone’s questions are answered once and for all.

***This is an MM romantic suspense novel, featuring a second chance romance, the hunt for a twisted serial killer, and one man’s journey to acceptance.

58018735._SY475_The Grave Between Us by Tal Bauer

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Tal Bauer is an evil, evil man 😉

I have absolutely no idea where to start with this review.

Basically, if you appreciate Tal’s unique ability to make a reader both love and hate him with the same passion because of what he puts his characters through, you’ll adore this book.

It’s a head rush, an adrenalin inspiring, heart-pounding, hand in the mouth, fear-inducing emotional ride that’s also full of tenderness, of strength of will, of sheer determination.

The plot’s fairly clear from the blurb, there’ll be no spoilers here. Let’s just say it is about as Tal as you can get in terms of twisted expectations, of false trails, of narratives which present one argument and then produce a completely different conclusion.

It’s compelling, it’s addictive, it’s rage-inducing, it will make you gasp, it will probably turn your stomach at some points, although it’s nowhere near as vomit inducing as The Murder Between Us was at times!

You will be on the edge of your seat (or bed in my case) from the moment you pick it up until the moment you finish. There is no respite once the chase begins.

Tal Bauer, you are beyond my words, your ability to craft such complex tales of psychological depth is incredible.

***SPOILER-ISH***

I really hope this series continues because I cannot get enough of Cole and Noah.

Seriously impressive debut novel from Kess McKinley

Hi-res coverNothing but Good by Kess McKinley

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a seriously impressive debut novel, especially for a romantic suspense story.

The pacing is excellent, the two characters at the centre of the romance element are brilliantly presented.

Their broken friendship from almost a decade earlier hangs just as large as the serial killer’s bold moves.

It’s not obvious who the bad guy guy is until the reveal is almost upon you, but once that secret is out, you can see the clues from earlier in the book.

I loved Jefferson’s FBI partnership, the personal friendship with Cee was a solid one and I liked that she was a strong, take no prisoners kinda gal.

The romance takes a bit of a backseat to the suspense plot but it’s still an important part of the narrative.

However, it’s relatively low steam, which was a little disappointing after they’d worked out the awfulness of their falling out back in college.

Still, I very much enjoyed the book and I look forward to more from Kess.
