5+ stars for Saint Con by Seelie Kay #romanticsuspense #romance #mustread #bookreview #newrelease

Title: Saint Con

Author: Seelie Kay

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Book Blurb:

It was a night dreams are made of, until the man of Jessica Knight’s dreams disappears.

When self-proclaimed good girl Jessica Knight literally bumps into apparent bad boy Connor O’Brien in a suburban Milwaukee wine bar, she is skeptical—of his intentions and the prospect for real love. A former priest, Saint Con is now a street lawyer for Milwaukee’s homeless. After a night of sizzling romance, Jess begins to thaw, and in the days that follow, she is so charmed by Con that she allows herself to start falling in love. Unfortunately, on their first real date, Con fails to appear. Jess doesn’t know if she’s been ghosted or if Con was unavoidably detained, but she leaves their meeting spot devastated. Until she discovers that Con is missing. Really missing. The police won’t help because he’s not a vulnerable adult nor is there proof that he has been harmed. So, it falls to Jess and her friends to find him. After surmounting numerous obstacles, Con is finally found, gravely injured and in a coma. Suddenly, it appears a promising love match may be over before it really began.

My Review:

Can love survive insurmountable odds for Jessica and Con? Saint Con is an unexpected complex story and not your average romantic suspense. The themes are relevant to today’s society and will make you think. Why don’t we have missing person alerts for able-bodied people? It’s a good question. The characters leap from the page, especially Jessica and Con. There’s a fair bit of suspense in this story which had me whipping through the pages. Saint Con is an unputdownable read.

Let’s start with the characters. Jessica is typical heroine looking for love in the wrong places. But she’s got depth and inner strength to get through what she must when Con goes missing. I connected with her right away. Con is an ex-priest and is now a street lawyer for the homeless. His fortitude is easy to spot but his character is elusive to unravel in the beginning. I enjoyed watching these two fall in like before Con disappears. Each character is so well written, it was fascinating to read them.

The descriptive narration and world-building are simply brilliant. Every scene is perfect portrayed with just the right amount of detail, emotion, and tension.

The romance is romantic suspense. There are plenty of tension and obstacles in this romance but it’s so realistic, I couldn’t get enough. A truly emotional read.

My Rating: 5+ stars
