Review + Excerpt: Love Me Anyway







There is a serial killer loose in America’s National Parks. Greyson Beauchene, Head Ranger of Alaska’s Denali National Park is certain he will never have to deal with that because his park is too ‘out of the way.’ However, Ranger Beauchene soon finds out he is dead wrong. 
Greyson and his two assistants are flown by helicopter into a remote section of the park where hikers have found a casket, one of the biggest indicators the serial killer has found Denali. Greyson’s team is joined by one incredibly irritating and extremely demanding FBI Profiler and her two Agents. Very good at what she does, Aspen O’Connell sets out to take control of the crime scene and everyone involved in it, and Greyson is having none of it. 
Greyson, Aspen and their teams must work together to find this killer before he kills again. Events move quickly as the group pieces together clues from the crime scene and a profile is established. As they work through abduction attempts and visible threats, Greyson and Aspen struggle to put their growing feelings for each other in a place that will keep them focused on finding an evil, evil man and bringing justice to innocent victims. 


Excerpt:  



“Ranger Beauchene,” she said looking back down at the shavings.  “You’re certain you didn’t move any of this around?”
“Quite,” he said, his arms still folded.  “I have no way of knowing how long this has been here, except that the shavings look fairly fresh.  Still, any of it could have been moved by wind or wildlife.  One of my assistants is quite adept at tracking.  I could have him check the area to see if there are any tracks in here we may not see.”
“That would be acceptable,” she said, dismissing him.
Greyson stood his ground and didn’t move.
“I said that would be acceptable.”  She glared at him.
“Yes, actually, it would be more than acceptable.  He’s quite good at tracking.”  He smiled at her congenially.
“Well then go get him!”  she snapped, clearly exasperated.
“Where did you grow up?” he asked her politely.
“That’s none of your concern,” she said, “now, where’s that tracker.”
“Well, where I grew up we said, please and thank-you when requesting something.  Did you learn that growing up, as well, or was everyone in your life as rude and abrasive as you are?”


Review Rating: 3.5 LIGHTNING BOLTS

Review. What do I have to say about this book? INTENSE! Whoa. Unexpected. Twists and turns, some dark places in the minds of a serial killer...yeah the suspense is so ramped up. Had my heart pounding quite a few times. Aspen, the leading character...kinda has no filter at times. She just says things and man do they just fly out!  I also enjoyed Greyson's character. There's a lot of ups and downs in the story, but plenty to keep the reader engaged. There are times I had to look back because of some inconsistencies, or at least they seemed it to me. And that ending? Dang it! Yep, I want more. The book has a bit of a slow start, and the inconsistencies I saw, but other than that, it really kept me going!
