BACKBURN, Book #4 

Talk about an ending I did not see coming! Ha. I usually have my theories as I read suspense novels, but with Backburn, I was at a loss. I swiped the pages with a need to find out "who the bad guy was" because I honestly had no idea. I mean, all my theories got tossed out the window as the story progressed! Loved that! It kept me intrigued the entire time. 

Dave Metcalf...there's nothing that anyone could NOT love about this man. Right off the bat, my heart yearned for him, but then it swooned completely. Nothing sexier, to me, than a great father! And Marissa? I loved her character ever since she got introduced in the other books. She's strong despite her insecurities in the love department which was something I truly enjoyed. She wasn't weak in any way, shape, or form. A truly great female lead! I also loved her relationship with Ashton, Metcalf's son. It was heartwarming to see her put him first always. 

As always, the author included some HOT scenes right along with the suspenseful ones making this a must read Romantic Suspense. The, I loved it!! It was perfect for Metcalf and Marissa and just what they not only needed, but deserved! Once again, five stars to a Brandy L Rivers book!
