Past The Line - book 1

I loved Past The Line. From the very beginning, the author does a good job of interweaving characters into the story that makes you question their true intentions. Until the very end, it had me guessing what was the truth, and how the main character should proceed (with caution). The quick chapters are engaging and keep the pace of the book to make it an absolute page-turner. Excited to read the next installment in the series!

The author does a nice job of capturing the inner workings of a metro police department. He creates a well-rounded cast of characters. He has created an interesting main character that will carry the series forward.
The book is satisfactory in character appeal and development. Most main characters are developed and have appealing or interesting aspects but could use more complex motivations. Secondary characters may have a purpose but have few unique characteristics.
The author brings out the characters using dialogue very well. He also doesn’t overload the chapters with backstory, instead weaving it into the narrative it hits and pieces until a full picture emerges. A closer POV could have helped, especially with bring out the main character’s thoughts and feelings. Significant events often happen , but no reaction is given from the characters.
The book is exemplary in its choice of topic or theme of the story. It is unique but still has strong appeal for most readers in its intended genre. The book is well plotted. There is cohesive theme or delivery of information. This would appeal to fans of detective fiction. The author understands the subject and meets the expectations of the genre well.
The book is exemplary in its structure, organization, and pacing. The structure of characters/parts aid in a compelling organization of the story or information. The pacing is even throughout and matches the tone/genre of the book.
The story hits the ground running and never lets up. Like most good police procedures, he throws in a lot of grunt work and subplots, but manages them well while keeping the focus on the main story.

Forbidden Rescue - book 2

This series is so good. It is extremely hard to put down!
