Review: Resurrection by Katie Reus

This is why I love Katie Reus so freaking much!

She faked her own death…

Skye ArĂ©valo left the CIA and faked her death to protect Colt Stuart, the only man she ever loved. Months later, a brutal kidnapping draws her to infiltrate a dangerous cartel. Just when she thinks she’s home free, things go horribly wrong and she escapes with bloodthirsty enemies on her heels…only to find herself face to face with a bewildered and angry Colt.

He’ll cross every line to save her…

When Colt Stuart, a former Marine, finds out the woman he loved betrayed him, he’s shocked and hurt, but it doesn’t stop him from breaking every law on the books to keep her alive. Unfortunately, it might not be enough to stop a powerful enemy who will do anything to see Skye dead.

What’s it About? Colt and Skye used to be partners on and off the clock until one day Skye “died” and left Colt devastated. A few months later they literally come face-to-face as Skye is rescuing a friend of Colt’s. Completely caught off guard, Colt quickly turns angry and starts to relive the pain and suffering he went through when he thought she was dead. There’s no time for him to demand an explanation though because Skye’s made some powerful enemies that want her dead and will use her feelings for Colt to hurt her. Unfortunately for Skye, Colt isn’t going to let her go that easily. He wants answers, he wants her back, and he wants to help her get rid of her enemies but the reason Skye left him was to protect him from someone very powerful and Skye’s not willing to risk Colt getting killed even if it means she has to leave him again.

Overall reaction to the story? Resurrection goes from 0 to 90 real quick and that’s just fine with me! The fast paced, high level action opening gives way to one heck of a second chance romantic suspense! Katie Reus has been a favorite of mine for awhile because I know I’ll get a strong female character and a respectful alpha male as well as an unforgettable story. I can't wait to see what else she has planned for this series!

Describe the hero in five words: Caring. Loyal. Tough. Stubborn. Intelligent.
Did you like him? Yes.
Why? Colt is a BAMF (Bad Ass Mother Fucker, gotta remember to censor that when cross posting this review lol). He doesn’t bother taking names he just puts down the bad guys yet he’s also the most loyal and caring friend anyone can have and that comes through within the first chapter which I loved because you get a clear idea of who Colt really is. I loved how he could be this deadly guy one minute and then gently cradle a dear friend he thought was dead. At the same time he could be bossy and stubborn as a mule but that just made him more likable to me even when I wanted to kick him in the chins. Colt may be a bit rough around the edges but he’s a character worth fighting for. I totally saw why Skye fell hard for him and why when she met up with him again, she just couldn’t resist him.

Describe the heroine in five words: Stubborn. Smart. Loyal. Caring. Strong.
Did you like her? Heck yes.
Why? Skye is the type of heroine I need to have in a romantic suspense in order to enjoy it. She’s a survivor, she’s well trained, level headed, and while she’s madly in love with Colt, she doesn’t let his reappearance in her life make her stupid. Emotionally conflicted yes, but Skye can shove all that aside in a life or death situation and make it out in one piece. THEN she’ll fall to pieces over Colt. I loved her strong personality because it made her stand out in a plot that had mostly alpha men. That’s not easy to do and Skye did it without making me feel like she was trying too hard. Plus, she stood her ground with Colt without being completely irrational when it came to her safety. Oh and her sense of humor was very similar to mine. There aren’t enough heroines named Skye either so that stood out. Of course, when I first saw her name, I thought of THIS SKYE but when she’s described, I pictured THIS ACTRESS. That was totally random but yeah.

Let’s talk about the romance: Get ready for one hot reunion between Colt and Skye because… Well dang I don’t want to give anything away but when he sees her again it was one of the sexiest, not to mention “Aww” inspiring moments in the whole book. Colt really was in love with Skye and Katie Reus did a great job conveying just how much Skye’s supposed death affected him by the way he reacted to seeing her again. And Skye? Well she did fake her death to protect him. She was the more stubborn of the two when it came to emotions and that was a nice change since it’s usually the man who struggles with feeling the feels.

How about that supporting cast? Skye is essentially a loner but Colt comes with a very close group of friends that I absolutely fell in love with. They’re all crazy loyal to each other and they have a “help each other no questions asked” kind of mentality.

They can be a bit rough and tumble with each other and definitely blunt to the point of rude but that’s part of their charm. I loved them all and want to know more about them.

Click It or Skip It? Click it. This new series is off to a promising start. Of course, it’s Katie Reus so I’m not surprised I liked it.
