book-blurbHe was Ice.

Sheriff Bo Lawson was everything a retired Marine Special Operations Operator should be. Cold. Calculating. Calm in all situations. He handled terrorists and too drunk locals without blinking, until a couple of dead bodies show up in his small town, throwing his controlled environment into chaos.

She was fire.

Cheri Boudreaux, manager of the local bar, lives her life by one rule – work hard and play harder. The last thing she needs is a repeat of her father: a strict stick-in-the-mud unable to veer from the rules. Then she meets Bo, a walking, talking sex god in uniform and her preconceived notions incinerate.

Ice meets fire.

Bo craves order. He craves control. He craves a red head with a wild streak wider than the Mississippi. She is everything he despises, but can’t get off his mind. So, when Cheri needs help, he wants to be her knight in shining armor.

Threatened by a deadly foe neither of them could predict, Bo and Cheri clash in an uncontrollable inferno. When the truth is revealed, their world falls apart – can they find the strength to fight for each other or will their newfound love fall under a relentless tide of evil?

my-review4 Stars

If you’re like me, Relentless River’s blurb totally caught your eye and made you want to jump into bed with Bo and Cheri.  It screams, watch out now – you’re about to enter an addictive world romance and adventure. I couldn’t wait to get started reading.

Right from the start, the plot is filled with intensity.  The sex tension is boiling over between the main characters and something nefarious seems to be brewing in the background.  It was exciting and easy to get caught up in the drama.

The story moves along at a swift pace and my time spent with Cheri and Bo was hot as hell.  This couple is hella entertaining.  I would definitely recommend checking it out but I would do so with a caveat.

I hadn’t read the other books in this series so when I started reading, I wasn’t sure what to expect from Relentless River.  Would I feel like I was missing too much back story?!?  Would the story stand alone or would I feel like I needed to go back to the beginning.

In the end, I felt torn.  I totally enjoyed my time spent with Cheri and Bo – they share an emotional and thrilling journey together.  However, I did feel like I was missing something so I might suggest reading the other books first.
