No Turning Back was a recommendation from an author I follow on twitter. I didn't know it was a series! I might kill her!!
What I liked: This could almost be considered a New Adult romantic suspense because the heroine is young not only in years but maturity. As I mentioned, I did not know this was a series when I started the book and at the end, I was pulling my hair out.
Ms Snow certainly knows how to keep you on the edge of your seat. While there is romance, this first in the series is more of a set up for the follow up books. Kathleen is very confused about who to trust and the way Ms Snow writes the story, I wasn't sure who she should trust either. The sign of good suspense.
I also predict, (slight spoiler)....somewhere down the line there is going to be a mess of a love triangle. Blane is more likable than I thought he would be in the beginning and I'm still not sure of Kade's whole story. I feel the author is holding a lot back on Kade's background. We do get some information but I still think there's more coming.
The writing and development of the book are good. The storyline is somewhat fluid as it's the first of the series and the world building is pretty believable. I have no qualms about recommending this book for those who like romantic suspense.
What I didn't like: At times, Kathleen is almost too trusting and wishy-washy but I credit that to her maturity level and life experience. This did not detract from the story in any way but just something I noted.
While this is a series, there is a resolution to some extent at the end of No Turning Back. It was good enough that I will pick up the next in the series.
If you like romantic suspense then this book is for you!!
