New York Times bestselling author Christie Craig’s thrilling romantic suspense about a by-the-book FBI agent who must trust a risk-taking detective for help tracking down her sister’s killers — perfect for fans of Kat Martin, Sharon Sala, and Brenda Novak!
FBI agent Brie Ryan’s latest mission is personal. She’s posing as a waitress at the Black Diamond strip club, the same club where her estranged half- sister worked until she turned up dead. When Brie’s undercover assignment is compromised, she turns to the only man she knows who can help her: Connor Pierce, a too-sexy-for-his-own-good, rule-breaking cop with a knack for solving cold cases.
When someone breaks into Brie’s apartment, Connor’s detective skills aren’t the only things that kick into overdrive. Although his job demands he remain detached, now he finds himself tempted not only by Brie’s beauty but also her intelligence and bravery. As the investigation-and their attraction-grows more intense, lives are in jeopardy, and Connor finds the most important rule he must break is his own. But can he put his heart on the line?
What an absolutely thrilling read! Don’t Look Back took me on a roller-coaster ride of emotions and DAMN I LOVED IT. I’m pretty new to the romantic suspense genre, and is it too early to say that I’ve a found a favorite already? 🤭🧡
I was invested in the storyline of Don’t Look Back from the very beginning. All the characters were fascinating to read about. Brie, the female lead, won my heart with her badass attitude, and I cheered for her throughout the book. Connor was the perfect hero for the story too! Brie and Connor’s chemistry was my favorite part – they made such a great team! 😍 I loved seeing them connect by sharing their histories and tragic pasts. The emotions that Connor and Brie felt about their lives were expressed in the best way possible through the author’s words, which made the characters feel very real to me. :’)
I appreciated how Don’t Look Back’s storyline wasn’t focused on the mystery or romance aspect, but delved into family drama and social issues as well. I think with romantic suspense novels, the author is pressurized to prioritize both the couple and keep a sense of suspense throughout the story, so kudos to Christie Craig for giving the book the best supporting cast it needed, without getting off-track with the plot.
5/5 HAPPY STARS. Can’t recommend this book enough. If you’re looking for an engaging book to pick up next, this one will be perfect for you! 💜
