Casee‘s review of Rescue Me by Christy Reece.

A covert operative of Last Chance Rescue (LCR) Enterprises, Eden St. Claire has made secrets her life’s work. Seven years ago, an evening of emotional vulnerability and pure pleasure almost destroyed her. Now Eden wears her beauty like a mask, concealing any hint of vulnerability or the demons of her past.

A daring rescue of an innocent girl on a Greek island leads Eden to a new partner. Jordan Montgomery has been looking for Eden–though he knows her by another name, from another time. But his search for her is overshadowed by a case that’s gone international. A powerful, ruthless, organized network is stealing women and children around the world. And a lover, a traitor, and a killer all wait for Eden’s next move.

I was walking through Borders last week when this book just popped out. It was on one of the ‘new release’ displays up front, which is the only reason I even saw it. I read the blurb and it sounded really good. I wasn’t sure if itw as romantic suspense, or just suspense. There were no copies of her books in the Romance or Mystery section. I picked it up anyway b/c I’m game to try new things.

Eden St. Claire aka Devon Winters is one of LCR’s most valuable operatives. When her boss and good friend, Noah, decides that it’s time to face her past, she has no idea what he has planned for her. When she sees Jordan Montgomery in Paris, she almost faints in shock. Well, not really, but she was definitely light headed. While Eden knows that Jordan won’t recognize her, she is still leery of his attentions.

There’s only one reason that Jordan has come to Paris. He hopes that LCR can find Devon Winters. Seven years ago, Jordan said some truly vile things to Devon before he kicked her out of her house. What he doesn’t know is that Devon was brutally attacked only blocks from his home and tortured for hours.

In between all the history, they also have a human trafficking ring to bring down. Noah decides that Jordan is the best person to go undercover with Eden. She’s furious and knows that Noah is playing some sort of game; she just hasn’t figured out what it is.

I admired Eden tremendously. Though she was a victim, she turned herself into survivor, helping other victims like herself. If you enjoy romantic suspense of any kind, I think you’ll like this book.

4.25 out of 5.

This book is available from Ballantine. You can buy it here or here in e-format.

  1. I don’t read alot of RS because I like them when they have a strong romance in them (rather than a straight suspense, because those books are often in the romance section). So glad to find your review here! it does have a good plot! How’s the strength (or intensity or sensuality) of the romance? Thanks!

  2. Caffey, the strength of the romance is pretty hot. There’s no glossing over.

    I like my RS to have romance, too. If they don’t, why are they even labeled as RS?
