5 stars for Vulnerable by @Marsharwest #laterinliferomance #romanticsuspense #romance #bookreview

Title: Vulnerable

Author: Marsha R. West

Genre: Late in Life Romance, Second Chance Romantic Suspense

Book Blurb:

Interior designer and junior college professor Maddy Crawford Crain strives to stand on her own after the unexpected death of her husband two years ago in a car wreck. Being sexually harassed at work makes her feel vulnerable and forces her to seek help.

Former LA Homicide Detective and now security expert David Bourland wants to protect his clients and protect his heart after seeing his wife gunned down. Maddy’s problems draw on all his protective instincts to keep her safe.

Will the harasser’s obsession turn deadly? Will David’s fear of falling in love with someone who could die violently and Maddy’s determination to stand on her own keep them from finding each other?

Note: Maddy is the sister of the heroine in COMPROMISE. David Bourland is the brother of the heroine in TRUTH BE TOLD. I wrote this book because a reader fell in love with David and pressed me for years to tell his story. 😊

My Review:

A powerful book about the strength of a woman. This book really reached me, and I was deeply touched.

Strong writing and excellent character development make this such a gripping read.

The romance is well done and realistic for older people. The depth of feeling presented will make some reach for tissues.

The suspense was strong and really intense at times. The evil that existed in Maddie's world was vile.

A fan of this author will want to get this book. A solid read for your e-reader. I will want to read more by this author. If your interest is romantic suspense, then read this book and you won't be disappointed.

My Rating: 5 stars
