Zoe Thomas is not the average eighteen-year-old girl one would expect as she’s been through more than most. The daughter of two FBI agents who are brutally murdered finds herself under the protection of the FBI. One of the agents who has been assigned to her is Nash Garrison and is older in years than her. A bond being around each other twenty-four seven is formed. Their attraction grows, but Nash can’t cross the line; after all, it’s his job to protect Zoe and not take advantage of her youth and vulnerability.
“There can’t be anything between us, Zoe. It’s never going to happen, and you need to let this schoolgirl – older man fantasy go. Do you hear me?”
Fast forward six years and Zoe has now begun her dream job in the FBI. When she bumps into Nash, all her old feelings come flowing back, and she realises that she is still hopelessly in love with him. Nonetheless, Zoe doesn’t want any distractions as her primary focus is bringing down the man that was behind the brutal murder of her parents and finally get retribution.
“Hi, I’m with the Girl Scouts would you like to buy some cookies?”
“Zoe? Wait.. that was you?”
Right from the very first page to the end I was treated to a full of thrills and spills story. It’s entails angst, suspense and romance with a touch of humour. Very cleverly written, it makes you think you know where it’s going only to be thrown right off the scent. Told from a dual point of view was a welcome attribute to get inside their minds and read their thoughts, too. Zoe is a sassy, strong-willed heroine and in her time of adversity, she never lets it get her down, making her a truly likable character. Nash is a protective alpha male but also has this way about him that makes him swoon-worthy. He has a constant need to keep Zoe safe.
This romantic suspense novel was so action-packed it made my head spin. I was desperate to know the who, what and why. It never left my thoughts and was relieved to have had an extended weekend to devour and discover where I was being led to. Apart from the good guys, we have a share of baddies. All characters lead and secondary were a real joy to read. The author has once again shown his versatility in his works, and I loved everything about Edge of Retribution. Seeing as the plot and characters are on point and the intense steamy scenes fitted perfectly into the two protagonists’ tale, I couldn’t recommend readers one-clicking this rollercoaster of a ride more. Its five stars are well-deserved and if I could given this book more, I would have.
