Review: Shattered Fear by Tara Thomas

Category : Reviews

Synopsis:
From romantic suspense author Tara Thomas comes the explosive first novella, Shattered Fear, in the brand-new romantic suspense Sons of Broad series.

Welcome to the sultry streets of Charleston, where simmering desire and dark danger rule…

Forbidden love never felt so good…She’s got a killer to catch.
He just might be it.
Undercover detective Janie Roberts needs to find out for sure if Brent Taylor is a murderer.
Handsome, wealthy, and sexy-as-sin Brent Taylor.
She’s got to get close enough to learn his secrets.

But getting this close is dangerous in more ways than one…

My Review:
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Stand-Alone: No There’ll be cliffhangers here
Part of a Series: Yes. One of (it appears) three novella prequels to the Sons of Broad series
POV: Janie and the killer
Steam Level: Slow burn to sexy
3.5/5

I’m torn on what to rate this novella. The writing was really good. The story is suspenseful and engaging with likable characters and plenty of twists and turns. However, I REALLY do not like cliffhangers and this one was a doozy. I’m pretty sure I know who the killer is (or at least I suspect) but I don’t have a clue as to who is pulling the strings. I don’t like that I need to get the next two (?) in order to find out if I’m correct or completely wrong. Cliffhanger aside this was a great story and a nice introduction to the series that I’m definitely interested in reading. Tara Thomas is a fabulous (new-to-me) author in one of my favorite genres.

I received an advanced copy of this book for free from the author/publisher via NetGalley. This is my honest and voluntary review.
