LETHAL IN LOVE: EPISODE 1 lands us smack dab in the villain’s point of view, and the suspense never lets up from the first page.
Jayda Thomasz is the leading detective in the case of the Night Terror, who shows up again after 25 years to kill women. She went undercover at a swinging house party, but found nothing. In the meantime, she had to contend with her partner, Chase, who’d turned…irritating (was what I’d use) ever since their (almost) one night stand, but who still had her back when it comes to it. There’s also her parents’ separation, and some revelation bombs, courtesy of her sister. Then there was that hot stranger she met at the party…
What can I say except that I’m hooked? While I sympathize with Jayda and her situation, I’d have to say that EPISODE ONE left a lot of threads hanging, with both sexual and dramatic tension mounting with every page. Not to mention higher stakes. I have some suspicions on who could be the villains, but I can’t say yet for sure. That’s half the fun in reading romantic suspense and I’m enjoying this a lot. I can’t wait to read the next installment and see what happens next!
Rating: 4 stars
Lethal in Love is a steamy romantic suspense about an instinct-driven detective and a sexy, scoop-hungry reporter, both on the hunt for a sadistic killer.
Jayda Thomasz is a sassy homicide detective who never lets her emotions get in the way of a case. So when a serial killer re-emerges after 25 years, the last thing she expects is to catch herself fantasising over the hot, smooth-talking stranger who crosses the path of her investigation.
Seth Friedin is a reporter chasing the story that’ll make his career. When he enters the world of swinging for research, he never imagines he’ll be distracted by a hard-talking female detective whose kiss plagues his mind long after she’s gone.
Past experience has shown Jayda that reporters are ruthless and unscrupulous. But when the murders get personal, will she make a deal with the devil to catch the killer? How far will she and Seth have to go? And do you ever really know who you can trust?
