Dire Straits is the fourth book in the Aspen Falls series, and we get to know Jessica and Jarrett a bit better. Both of them are unhappy in their current jobs/situation, but neither of them feel able to make a change. Just before Jessica has a week's vacation, a dead body is found. This leads to questions being asked by Jarrett and Jess, both professionally and personally.
The romance side of this was a slow burn, and going behind closed doors when necessary. The mystery side kept me guessing all the way through, although I had my own suspects.
There were no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow, and I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It is always a pleasure to catch up with old characters, and I loved the cameos we got.
This is a great series that I am thoroughly enjoying. Can't wait for the next one.

The fabulous cover hints at the story inside and I do like when that happens. Doesn’t it peak your curiosity?
Annaliise has lost one friend to the curse and she struggles to stop any more from being added to the tragedy. She’s determined to protect her friends, whether they believe in the curse or not.
I love any twist on murder in my mystery and suspense/thriller reading, and Marlene M Bell supplies that in Stolen Obsession.
Traveling through words are some of my favorite adventures. I go places I would never visit otherwise. So…are you ready for the journey?
Annalise fights her attraction to Alex, but he is persistent and patient in his wooing of her, offering to help her on her mission to solve the mystery of the jewels. Annalise had suffered a great loss and protected her heart from more hurt. Of course, we know that can’t stand forever, seeing this is romantic suspense, but he will have to earn his way in.
I can relate to him, because my Mr Wonderful was the same way. And we know how that ended.
Their relationship developed in a realistic fashion, no instalove, but a familiar face appears in a new light for her. I won’t explain any more. You will need to read Stolen Obsession to find out more.
I couldn’t help but crack up at the Art Lady. She carries Ms Smith, her trusty 38, because pepper spray doesn’t cut it for her and is only used for backup.
Numerous times Marlene M Bell takes me to the brink of suspenseful tragedy, only to keep them safe and let me know there is more danger to come. I am very suspicious and she leads me to the edge of a cliff. I feel I’ll fall off, but she yanks me back from the precipice saying…not yet…but soon. I love that!!!
I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Stolen Obsession by Marlene M Bell.
The books in this epic saga can be read as stand-alone stories, or you can experience all the love, thrills, and exploits of the whole series from beginning to end. It's up to you. ENJOY!
Solving murders and bringing bad guys to justice was all Nat ever wanted to do. She couldn’t imagine being anything but a Homicide Detective. It was who she was. What she could use her Gift for. Her absolute obsession.
Then he walked into the Precinct…
Tall, handsome as the Devil and hotter than homemade sin, Special Agent Rafe O’Rhordan was everything she never wanted and the one thing she couldn’t live without – a man strong enough to corral her and secure enough in himself to resist the temptation.
Battle after battle, war after war, saving the injured, fighting for justice, and freeing the imprisoned had become his life. Being a founding member of the Dragon Protection Agency – DPA for short – had kept him busy, fulfilled, and always on the move for the last few decades. He and his Brethren were a well-tuned machine no bad guy could escape.
Then he met her and everything changed…
Headstrong, smarter than a whip, and more gorgeous than any woman he’d ever set eyes on, Detective Donatella Hale was the light of his soul and a pain in his backside – a woman strong enough to stand up to him and soft enough to love for eternity.
But love and forever will have to wait. They have a killer to catch…
Six murders in eighteen months. No clues except the bodies he leaves behind, the murderer all the papers called the Yellow Ribbon Ripper is due to strike again, but who will be the next victim? Where will he leave the body?
The clock is ticking.
The killer is on the hunt.
Can Nat see where he is?
Can Rafe blaze the trail in time?
Fate Will Not Be Denied…but then again, She’s never been chased by a serial killer.
The Dragon Guards have joined law enforcement with the Dragon Protection Agency and Burn Dragon Burn is one exciting read. Nat is a Homicide Detective and is on the hunt for a serial killer and Rafe O’Rhordan is a Special Agent with the DPA is one hotter than sin distraction that she could do without, not to mention that fate has stepped in and made them mates and who knew that dragons and other shifters were real?
This story is very fast paced with lots of thrilling suspense and action throughout including an intense and blazing hot search for Nat, which keeps readers on the edge of their seats and surprising twists ensure they want to know what happens next. The intriguing romance between Nat and Rafe has lots of sass and feisty emotions which keep readers in awe of this fiery relationship and of course the story has lots of sexy shifters including dragons and a Cat King, so I can’t wait to get to know them better.

Mom of two rockin' girls, Reader of everything, Author of The Dragon Guards series and many more surprises to come!
I am a sarcastic,sometimes foul-mouthed, not afraid to drink a beer, always southern woman with 2 of the most amazing teenage daughters,
a menagerie of animals and a voracious appetite for reading who recently decided to write the storied running through her brain. I read my first book, Dr Suess' Cat in The Hat by myself at 4 and was hooked.
I believe a good book along with shoes, makeup and purses will never let a girl down and that all heroes of all the books I have ever read or will ever write pale in comparison to my daddy! I am a sucker for a happy ending and love some hot sweaty sex with a healthy dose of romance.
I am still working on my story but believe it will contain all of the above with as much SPICE as I can work into it. CHEERS!

His look, the way his entire face tightened in hungry, appreciative lines made me feel like something more, made me feel like I deserved to be worshiped and maybe even loved. If that was how he looked at his girl, then I never wanted to be anything else.
Cyrus Warner had just as many control issues as I did, which was why we both liked to test the other’s limits and neither one of us liked to fail.
This was pretty different from the usual Crownover stories I have read and I not only applaud the author for trying something new but I really enjoyed it.
Mostly first person from heroine's pov, she's a bit cranky, has some trust issues, and been burned but I liked her tough cookie act up against our hero. Hero's a cool, straight-shooter, sexily self-assured, and wary of love cowboy who wears motorcycle boots. They played off each other well and had some hot scenes (who knew campground showers could be such a scorching sex setting).
Hero's brothers with heroine's bestfriend feature heavily, they're stars of the next books in the series and worked great to add and round out the story. There's some mystery/action/suspense that will keep the pages turning. I thought the last 1/3 or so of the ending was slowed things way down and there were even some sex scenes I started to skim, I felt like the story dragged on a bit too much and the action and danger our characters found themselves in got fantastical and instead of feeling sad/worried, it lost me.
Otherwise, this was a great something different and I'm definitely going to continue reading in the series.
