Review: The Changeup by Mary Billiter

Category : Reviews

A hot deputy, a woman in hiding, and a murder that changes it all. True love and the truth are often at odds in Mary Billiter’s latest installment in her resort romance series.

The Feds changed her name, occupation, and location, but Cupid and crime still found her. Both Witness Protection and her position as a hotel conference services manager require Rebel Roberts to maintain a low profile. But when she finds herself at the center of high crime and high romance at the high-rise Point Resort in Long Beach, even the best-laid plans are subject to change.

Former college baseball pitcher Ryan McHenry plans on becoming a deputy sheriff like his late uncle. But when Rebel literally stumbles on a dead body by her hotel, helping her change the narrative may throw a curve in his career plans.

Can Rebel and Ryan find true love and happiness with so many lies between them?

My Review:
Genre: Romance – Suspense, police, FBI
Standalone: Yes
Part of a Series: Yes Book 6 of the Resort RomanceSeries
POV: Rebel and Ryan
Steam Level: Slow Burn to Toasty at times

The Changeup is the first I’ve read by this author and in this series The Changeup was super cute, funny and suspenseful (although I did figure part of it out early on). My only real issue was how quickly it was wrapped up. Throughout the novel was full of detail that was engrossing and engaging but at the it was tidied up in one short chapter a month later which made it seems like a gift-wrapped conclusion and wasn’t very satisfying, compared the rest of the book. This really is the only reason I’m knocking my review to a 4. With a tighter ending and epilogue this could have been a 5-star romance.

I received an advanced copy of this book. This is my honest and voluntary review.

Favorite Quotes:

“I thought I lost you, which is stupid, because it’s not like you’re mine.” “You didn’t lose me…I’m just lost.”

“I really like you,” he whispered. If I hadn’t been in his arms, I was sure my knees would have buckled beneath me. Instead, he kept me afloat. “Why?” I asked. “Because when I’m with you, I know where I belong.”
