I am sorry that I have been a bit slacking on reviews lately. I have been reading and drafting reviews but haven't had time to type them up. I am in the middle of a family emergency so my mind has been elsewhere.
I love this series and I have been looking forward to Vanessa and Rock's story for a long time. I am not even that much of a romantic suspense fan but I love this series to bits and little pieces.
I loved Vanessa. She was so strong and smart. In a way that was completely natural and not at all Mary Sue. I loved how she never really fell apart. I find that is rare in most romantic suspense novels. I liked Rock as well. I did have moments where I wanted to smack him upside the head. But he definitely had his reasons so I could understand but still, I wanted to smack him upside his head. He acted like a jerk to Vanessa not because he was a jerk but because he had his reasons. And it was clear throughout the book that he did love her so I can excuse his jerkiness.
I loved Thrill Ride. It was a bit slow going on the start but again, I've been a bit distracted lately. It did prove to be a great diversion during a time of great stress. Oddly enough, I loved the action sequences. Usually they are the throwaway part for me in a romantic suspense novel. I like that they never became overwhelming or took over the focus from the romance. I also did know who the bad guy was until the end of the book and the buildup was great. The chemistry between a Rock and Vanessa was perfect with a great amount of conflict and tension. That's always a good thing.
This is part of a larger series but can be read on its own. But I highly recommend reading all the books in this series. I've loved each and every one of them.
