Innocent Target
Innocent Target - Katie Reus


Innocent Target continues the Redemption Harbor series and brings everything I love about Katie Reus. You get peeks into the characters from previous books, creating a 'family' for characters. You get danger. You get romance. What more could I want in a book? There is a reason Reus is one of my go to authors!

Hadley has just moved to Redemption Harbor to be close to her new found family when she is attacked in a parking lot at school. Turns out, someone wants her dead and Axel was given the job. These two meet but Hadley doesn't know exactly who Axel is or what he does.

I was surprised at how vulnerable Axel seemed at times. He is a badass but there are these flashes of insecurity or something that pop up once in awhile. I thought it made him seem more real. Hadley was sweet and likable; not my favorite heroine, but she was still enjoyable. Skye and Colt play a big part of the story (given their history with special operations and such) attempting to find out who is targeting Hadley. Brooks is obvious a large part of the story since he is Hadley's newly found brother! Axel takes on the role of Hadley's protector while they try to find out who wants her dead. He isn't honest with her about who he really is though, which creates tension in the relationship. They have some instant attraction, but overall, I found their relationship sweet.

Innocent Target is a great addition to the Redemption Harbor series and I am really loving the world Reus has created for these characters. Certainly looking forward to more books in this series!

Innocent Target (Redemption Harbor #4) by Katie Reus
Innocent Target - Katie Reus

Innocent Target - Katie Reus 

 

Hadley has just moved to Redemption Harbor. She’s just getting to know her wealthy father and brother and although she loves them to death, they can be a little overprotective at times. Good thing too because now that someone is threatening her, her brother Brooks and the rest of the Redemption Harbor Consulting team will do anything to protect her.

 

Just like the rest of the series, this book packs a fast-paced, full of action, edge-of-your-seat plot that was hard to put down. The first chapter was both shocking and amazing and it was everything I want in a romantic suspense. It pulled me right in and from that moment I knew this was going to be a terrific story.

Hadley and Axel relationship is sweet yet it doesn’t lack passion. Their attraction is palpable from the instance they meet and doesn’t falter, even when she discovers his true identity.

 

Romance and suspense aside, the best part of the story was the people protecting Hadly, specially Skye, whom we got to meet in the first book in the series. She is a bad-a$$ woman through and through and one of my favorite characters ever. If the book was great, Sky and his loving husband Colt making a big appearance made it even better.

 

Redemption Harbor series as a whole will leave you wanting more and this book in particular will show you what you’re missing out on if you haven’t started it yet. 

 

** I received this book at no cost to me and I volunteered to read it; this is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher. **

Release Day Review! Innocent Target (Redemption Harbor #4) by Katie Reus!
Innocent Target - Katie Reus

 

 

From USA Today bestselling author Katie Reus comes the next story in the explosive Redemption Harbor series where sparks fly and so do bullets…

He wasn’t supposed to fall for her…

She was a target. A contract that came across his desk by mistake. Axel was simply going to warn her that she was in danger and get out. Then he got a taste of her and fell hard. But they’re from two different worlds. Not only is she innocent, she’s out of his league. He should keep his distance, but he can’t. Not when someone wants her dead. Now he’s driven to protect her, to keep her safe.

What happens when she discovers who he really is? 

Hadley moved to Redemption Harbor for vet school and to be closer to her new family. Now that her billionaire father knows about her existence, her life has changed drastically. She just never imagined that she might be targeted because of her family. And she definitely never imagined she would fall for the one man she should never want. A man who kills for a living. A man who’s obsessed with her. A man who will do anything to protect her from the danger lurking in the shadows.

 

 

 

Innocent Target is an electrifying read that held me captive from beginning to end.

 

Hadley and Axel are two very strong, compelling characters that easily caught my attention and then ensured that I fell for them. Their romance is spicy and full of danger which makes for a very exciting courtship as their sizzling chemistry kept the passions burning hot while distracting them from emotional issues and their determination to keep their hands off of each other.

 

Excitement, danger and suspense keep readers glued to the pages as anticipation and thrills build throughout the story since Hadley has come to the attention of several killers and it’s a good thing she has caught Axel’s attention or sooner or later one of the attempts on her life would be the end and readers can’t help but become caught up in all the danger and excitement as Hadley and Axel easily drag readers along with them throughout their dangerous adventure.

 

The thrills and excitement never end in this fast paced story that is full of passion and romance. So far every visit to Redemption Harbor has been exciting but this one really got my adrenaline pumping and had me biting my nails in suspense while I got to know Axel and Hadley and of course renew my acquaintance with the characters that I have already met who by the way added quite a bit of intensity to the situation in regards to Axel’s involvement with Hadley. Did I mention that Axel is one sexy and dangerous hunk that sent chills down my spine…yum!  I do believe that Katie Rues has her work cut out for her in bringing another such hunk to my attention because Axel is just so memorable (did I mention, yum!) but I am sure that Katie Reus is up to the task because she always brings her characters to vivid life and ensures that I enjoy each and every one of them.

 

 

Innocent Target is the 4th book in the Redemption Harbor series which includes:

 

Resurrection

Savage Rising

Dangerous Witness

 

& Book 5 will be releasing late September 2018.

 

Innocent Target is available in print or ebook at:

Cleopatra in Space #1: Target Practice - Mike Maihack
For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

For Mike Maihack's first graphic novel, this one is actually pretty amazing. Cleopatra is transported into a futuristic academy on another planet and has to partake in Indian-Jones-style missions to prepare her for her role as messiah of the galaxy. Oh, and there's an organization run by cats. What's not to love?

Great simple dialogue with awesome artwork, this is such a great book. It is easy to get sucked into the story. And Cleo's character is snarky and hilarious. This is a very pleasurable read. 

Whether she's walking in on a surprise birthday party or fighting robot mummies, it is always a fun adventure with Cleo by your side. Excellent book. A great read for young graphic novel fans. 

I am so excited to read the rest of the series and find out what happens next.
