Production line romantic suspense
Dare You to Run: An Unbroken Heroes Novel - Dawn Ryder

A lot of tell, no show. Insta-lust/attraction between our leads, with a first kiss off-screen. The time jumping was a bit off and made it kind of a stop and go feel. It's like the author knew where she wanted the story to go but didn't take the time to connect the dots. The second half became just a sex-fest between leads. 
Pretty interesting suspense arc (continued from book 1) with shady, powerful, and working towards the greater good people. 
Heroine was ok with wanting to control, and taking steps to, her own life but she was put into kidnapping situation after kidnapping situation so felt like just a token to show off hero's soldier skills. 
Hero was bit of a blank slate just growling with intimidating stares that also had burning eyes. 
The editing and lack of fluid story connection made this pretty shallow and surface. Gives you the military hero and needs rescuing heroine tropes but no depth to them.

The Unbroken Line of the Moon
The Unbroken Line of the Moon - Johanne Hildebrandt,Tara F. Chace Honestly, I was not into this story for a long time, but I persisted. This is the 4th book in the series, but the first with an English translation so I'm not sure what happened before, but my understanding is that the ones before it aren't needed for this storyline. It reminds me so much of the tv show Vikings. There are time jumps and weird things. It took me awhile to getting into what was really happening. I was slow to catch on, but by the end I was hooked. I do want to read the next installment now. I need to find out what happens to the babies. This is not so much a romance, but more of a Vikings version of Game of Thrones.

Deep Into Trouble
Deep Into Trouble: An Unbroken Heroes Novel - Dawn Ryder

'Deep Into Trouble' by Dawn Ryder  is book Three in the "Unbroken Heroes" series.  This is the story of Saxon and Ginger.  I have not yet read the other two books so for me this was a standalone book.   Ginger is a self proclaimed 'nosy person' which has lead her into become a librarian and research person.  It has also lead her into trouble where she witnessed a murder that she is now being hunted by the murders to take her out. Saxon loves the thrill of the hunt and is in New Orleans on a mission that is leading him t take down Raven.  But Ginger walks into his mission and now he is having to keep her safe.  But Saxon is also having strong feelings for her and she for him.   Ginger was a hoot!  I loved how she made Saxon feel and how he changed some around her.  This book had the excitement, some humor and a great main characters that I feel in love with!
"My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."

Dare You to Run: An Unbroken Heroes Novel - Dawn Ryder

Damascus felt the cold bone deep, he had been kidnapped and was put into a concrete hold. Damascus knew she had to be stronger than her circumstance if she wanted to survive. Vitus Hale thought Damascus was a pitiful mess but then again she was a Washington debutante who had slipped away from her escort and got herself kidnapped. Vitus was used to the shadows that is where Vitus spent most of his time. Vitus had been a Navy Seal. Vitus was attracted to Damascus. Vitus gave Damascus a choice - take her back to her father right away or keep her out of sight and see if the ex seals can catch the people who took her. Damascus wanted to wait and see if the ex Seals could catch her kidnappers. One week later Vitus wanted Damascus as much as she wanted him but Vitus had to remind Damascus he wasn’t the type of man Jeb had picked out for Damascus. Damascus realized she moved through her life half asleep. But right now Damascus was who she really was and she wanted to get to know who she was with Vitus. Vitus proposes to Damascus and they become engaged. But when Damascus gets back to the states she breaks the engagement and cuts all communication off with Vitus. Tyler Martin wants to marry Damascus . Jeb Ryland’s - Damascus’s father- has involvement behind the scenes especially when Raven and his men come into play. Also Presidential hopeful Carl Davis wants to bring down the Hale brothers. Jeb was power hungry and a control freak. Jeb threatened that Vitus won’t make it through his next mission enless Damascus breaks all ties and communications with Vitus. So Damascus calls off everything without a reason. Vitus’s Navy seal team is double crossed by people who had tried to kill them. Damascus and Vitus meet again three years later when she is to give Vitus a medal for rescuing her. Vitus as well as  Damascus have a mission but they both still want and love each other.

I had mixed feelings on this story. I liked some things about the story and didn’t care for others.. I definitely didn’t like the names Vitus and Damascus. The plot was good just too much going on. Also a little too much sex in the story yet we are told of the first kiss but not shown. It would have been easier to read the first story for background reasons. Vitus had been a Navy Seal why didn’t Damascus let him do his thing instead of just walking away. Vitus's team would have been with him and had his back.But I did like how the feelings were still there for Damascus and Vitus. All and all not a bad story just not one of my favorites.
