Today we’re on tour with A.K. Evans’ all-new release, OVERCOME! We are so excited to share Emma-Louise’s review with you, too!
Author: A.K. Evans
Genre: Contemporary Romance
It only took a matter of moments for Lexi Townsend’s life to change. Her power was taken, her trust lost. Her bubbly personality was smothered by the depressing weight of shame and guilt.
Four years later, Lexi yearns to get back to the former version of herself. A stronger version. One who is no longer afraid to share her story, her body, and her trust. When Private Investigator Cruz Cunningham comes into her life, he proves he’s a man that’s deserving of her trust.
When multiple women in Windsor go missing, it launches Cruz and the Cunningham Security team into action. As Cruz digs deeper into the investigation, he’s torn between finding the missing women and protecting the woman he loves. Putting her faith in Cruz, Lexi never imagines that this case could destroy everything she’s worked so hard to overcome.
WARNING: This novel contains references to rape and sexual assault and may trigger discomfort in some readers.

When I saw the cover for this book, I expected a quiet little romance with an ounce of suspense. Nah ugh! Not what I got at all. I would be remiss if I left out the beautiful dedication this author wrote. It summarises so eloquently what this book encompasses, giving people back power that was ripped from them.
How on earth does someone move pass a tragedy such as the one that Lexi endures? How do you battle demons that are so ingrained into your psyche you struggle to unravel all the loose ends?
I have to admit I’m a little in love with Cruz after this book. He’s such a white knight. He had all the patience in the world when it comes to the events in this book and the way he was with Lexi blew my mind and melted by heart. Plus, my inner romantic swooned and grabbed a fan and an ice tea.
“Lexi…I’d never walk out on a woman like you.”
I won’t lie, the story starts slowly and builds to a large unexpected crescendo, but knowing what I do about the characters, it makes all the more sense as to why it would be a slow starter book.
‘That was when it happened.
I fell so hard for Cruz, I wasn’t sure I’d ever get up.’
And I just have to add that I want to adopt Lexi’s brothers, Luke & Logan. Oh my word! Adorably sweet and devoted doesn’t even come close. Overcome is about acceptance and rediscovering who you are after tragedy. Lexi was a caterpillar in a cocoon that by the end of the book emerges as a beautiful butterfly free to go where she pleases.
This is the second offering in the Cunningham Security Series; however, it is not necessary to read the first book Obsessed to enjoy what this author has created. I cannot thank the her enough for taking on such a topic and dealing with it so well. Well done Ms. Evans.
About the Author
A.K. Evans is a married mother of two boys residing in a small town in northeastern Pennsylvania. After graduating from Lafayette College in 2004 with two degrees (one in English and one in Economics & Business), she pursued a career in the insurance and financial services industry. Not long after, Evans realized the career was not for her. She went on to manage her husband’s performance automotive business and drive the shop race cars for the next thirteen years. While the business afforded her freedoms she wouldn’t necessarily have had in a typical 9-5 job, after eleven years she was no longer receiving personal fulfillment from her chosen career path. Following many discussions, lots of thought, and tons of encouragement, Andrea decided to pursue her dream of becoming a writer.
Between her day job, writing, and homeschooling her two boys, Evans is left with very little free time. When she finds scraps of spare time, she enjoys reading, doing yoga, watching NY Rangers hockey, dancing, and vacationing with her family. Andrea, her husband, and her children are currently working on taking road trips to visit all 50 states (though, Alaska and Hawaii might require flights).
