After a rough youth, Michelle Peach was finally content in Portland—until two men broke into her home, threatened her, and sent her mentally unstable mom on a blackmail spree that Michelle has to stop. The last person Michelle wants to see is her ex, Evan Boldon, a former marine turned sheriff. But Evan misses the woman who walked away instead of letting him help years ago. This time he’s not asking permission; he’s going to put a stop to the trouble stalking Michelle and her friends—and win her heart for good.
Pivot by the following writers: Kat Martin, Alexandra Ivy, and Rebecca Zanetti is amazing. It contains three short stories. Each one connects to the previous one. Characters from the previous story are reintroduced and I loved it. I loved seeing how each character got their own story in a way. Not all of them did. The bad guys are just as believable as the good guys are. I was laughing at how macho the good guys acted that I could literary picture them and their actions in my head. It was crazy good. The women for these strong heroes were just as tough. The women in their lives had gone through just as much danger and troubles as the guys did. Some had the physical scars left over to prove it.
The entire book was action-packed, suspense, and carried just the right amount of romance that it didn’t take away from the thriller parts of the stories. Crime fiction, plenty of fighting, undercover agents, and dangerous situations to keep readers like me hooked. Overall, I was impressed. This was enjoyable to read. I still cant believe three different writers wrote each story in this book. It’s mind blowing. I could have sworn only one writer wrote them all. Well-written and excellent characterization-this is a must read for all fans of suspense.
