Book Review: Collision Point

Riordan “Rory” Malone is a force to be reckoned with. A member of the Brute Force Protection Agency and an operative working with the Elite Ops, Rory is the fiercest of warriors and protectors. Honed from the strong Irish stock of their grandfather and sharpened to a razor’s edge, Malone men live for one single purpose: to protect the women who own them, body and soul. From the moment he saw Amara Resnova, he knew she could be that woman.

But Amara, daughter of an alleged notorious crime lord, is a force in her own right. When she betrays her father, she’s finds herself in the arms of a man who is dangerous for her body and soul.

Can Rory keep Amara safe while protecting his own heart? Can Amara trust Rory not to break hers even as the danger mounts, threatening to take them and their passion to a breaking point?

To write an interesting romantic suspense where the tension keeps building and to liven it up with heat between the characters is a delicate dance.  One that I don't feel was achieved in COLLISION POINT.  Now don't get me wrong, this book does make for a fun read but there nothing memorable about the story other then a faint sense of irritation that this book didn't reach its potential.

I found the characters interesting to a point.  Rory is definitely an alpha male and there is just a touch of the paranormal with his family history with their women. And I just loved his grandfather!  That man definitely knows more then he is letting on.

What threw me off about this book is the pacing.  Every time I started to feel the build up of tension from the danger surrounding Amara and Rory, it was interrupted for a sex scene.  Now I am far from a prude but I want the sexual energy to add to the story line not attempt to overtake it.  

COLLISION POINT is a romantic suspense that I am sure some of my readers will enjoy.  It is fast paced and has some good dialogue.  It is just not one that I am going to recommend that all of my readers rush out to buy.

*** I received this book at no charge from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.  All opinions expressed within are my own.
