Robin Perini's Behind the Lies Blog Tour ~ Series Review + #Giveaway


IN HER SIGHTS

Montgomery Justice, Book 1

SWAT Team Sniper Jasmine "Jazz" Parker can thread the eye of a needle with a bullet. As the only female sniper in the state of Colorado, Jazz is unique for more than her extraordinary marksmanship skills and cool head. Jazz Parker and her weapon defend the helpless by exacting swift and uncompromising justice. Not bad for the daughter of the town whore.

After growing up on the seedy side of town, Jazz believed when she'd changed her name and her life at fifteen, she'd buried her past. Two years ago, she even drove away the one man she believed she could love—ex-Army Ranger turned reporter Luke Montgomery—to protect her secret.

Then, in a fleeting second, the time it takes for one clean shot, one perfect hit, to save the life of the Governor's daughter, Jazz's world begins to crumble around her. Her past and her present now threaten to destroy the life she has carefully constructed for herself. Her face and name have been splashed across the front page—by none other than Luke Montgomery—and her past has reawakened with a vengeance. A vicious enemy is bent on destroying Jazz's life, forcing her to turn to the one man she can never have in order to stop a killer before she and everyone she cares about pay with their lives.

Jasmine keeps everyone at a distance; she is too afraid that someone will undercover her past. She ended the only lasting relationship with the man she loved when he started asking too many questions. Two years later, Luke’s back and once again Jasmine’s secrets are at risk. Can these two very stubborn individuals meet in the middle –stay alive, and uncover the target(s) and killer(s)?

It was a lot of fun reading this romantic suspense. The author did a remarkable job with details; things you don’t often notice {i.e. Jasmine nervous tick}. Often times small details like a character’s favorite candy gets mentioned and seems important, then it is never brought up again -, not with this author; she maintains even the seemly insignificant. The characters and the world are built on what seemed like insignificant details and realistic dialogue without overwhelming the reader.

Overlook the cover and give this one a read.

BEHIND THE LIES

Montgomery Justice, Book 2

Of the six Montgomery brothers, golden-boy Zach has always walked on the wild side. He rocketed to fame playing a hero in a movie, but off screen he's living in the shadows. Zach's dark secret: he leads a double life as a CIA operative. When a mission to stalk a terrorist goes horribly wrong, Zach's cover is blown. He's on the run and fighting to stay alive long enough to discover whom he can trust and who betrayed him.

Jenna Walters thought she'd married the 'perfect man' until she unearthed his terrible secret. Now, desperate to escape his crosshairs, she and her son take refuge in Zach's secret hideaway. Sparks fly between Zach and Jenna even as danger explodes around them.

From Afghanistan to Turkey to the mountains of Colorado, assassins track them and are closing in. Not only is Zach's life at stake, but now Jenna and her son are targets in this high stakes game.

Golden Heart Winner and seven-time finalist, Robin Perini offers up another page-turner.

Perini writes remarkably strong female characters. Jenna is an abused-wife desperate to save her and her son, Sam. The author does an incredible job of building Jenna’s character throughout the entire book; giving the reader tidbits of back-story while revealing the extent she will go to protect those she loves. Zach’s character perfectly complements Jenna; I enjoyed his interaction with both mother and son. Jenna is leery to trust someone who has deep secrets they can’t share; it reminds her of her husband. With unknown enemies lurking Zach and Jenna quickly learn they must work together in a desperate attempt to survive.

This is the perfect example of a romantic suspense. This can be read as a stand-alone. Everything was balanced; the plot flowed in alignment with the apprehension, and the intensity did not overwhelm. The best part was when it came to the romance there was no game playing; the author kept things natural, allowing thing to progress without drama. Highly Recommended for fans of romantic suspense.

And just think there is still four more unwed-single Montgomery brothers waiting for that special gal to come along.

  4. As you know, I am a very big fan of yours and this series. You successfully concocted a series about the Montgomery brothers who are Alpha Males without being domineering, and secure enough to have strong women in their lives.

    Zach Montgomery, the wild one of the family is not who seems. Neither, is Jenna Walters who crosses paths with Zach while she and her son, Sam are on the run from her assassin husband. Zach, in reality, a CIA operative also is on the run from an unknown killer,

    Although estranged from his family, Zach's brothers stand with Jenna and him. Zach and Jenna are very likable. They come to terms with their own demons, as well the real ones threatening their lives, so they can have the chance for love.

    There is sufficient deceit, betrayal, unknown killers and sufficient twists to keep the reader captivated.

    The manner in which you resolve the intricate, interwoven plots in the last quarter of the book is nothing short of amazing.

    Although each book is a stand-alone read, I prefer to read them in order.
