My Review:

Looking to indulge in a sizzling romantic suspense that’ll burn your fingertips? This is the book for you. There’s nothing I love more than a hot romantic suspense and this one I couldn’t put down. A well-plotted romantic suspense with intriguing characters, an office romance, industry spying, corruption, and a villain who’ll stop at nothing to get what he wants.

The plot unfolds at a rapid pace, yet the narration filled in all the details needed. Suspense and mystery played a vital role in the ambiance of the story. Well, plus the dark HOT romance. The pacing was fast, but it had to be to increase the intrigue.

The characters are what make this such an addictive read. From the first page til the last, I couldn’t get enough. Even the villain wove a spell around my heart. Each character had their own personality and distinct voice. The originality of the characters had me whipping through the pages.

The romance is a mash-up of various tropes. There’s a love triangle here but it’s unlike any I’ve read before. The heat between the main characters was blistering and had a dangerous edge. The intimacy was at times violent so if you are sensitive, please consider this your warning. Like the title implies, there was a lot of give and take in this romance.

A brilliant erotic romantic suspense I couldn’t stop reading. I strongly recommend this book!

Author Biography:

Kristal Dawn Harris is a multiple award-winning, RONE nominated, American romance author. She has been married for 30 years and has two children. Kristal finished a degree from Miami University in Accounting Technology, but quickly realized she preferred words over numbers. She is an avid reader who loves darker paranormal romance. Her hobbies include coin collecting, physical fitness, stained-glass art (beginner), poetry, and song writing. Kristal writes paranormal, erotic, fantasy, as well as contemporary romance in different lengths.


My novels allow me to develop in-depth worlds and I've enjoyed writing each one. If you like a longer book then The Rings books, The Burn, or Three Propositions might be what you're looking for.

My novellas always center on the romance between the hero and heroine. Most are designed to have a prior connection, so there is some basis for their relationship with a couple twists tossed in. It might surprise you to know, novellas and novelettes are my favorite to write. Not because of the length, but the focus on the couple.

I like it hot, so expect The Red Heart series is actually historical erotic...light erotic. The Dragon's Gift, Blood Bond, and Seduction by Blood are paranormal erotic. Fair warning...ha!
