His Secret Past by Katie Reus-a review




His Secret Past by Katie Reuse

Six years ago, Alexis Baptiste’s world was turned upside down when Hunter Cassidy disappeared without a trace, leaving her alone and pregnant. She’s finally moving on with her life when he resurfaces, just in time to rescue her from a would-be assassin. Forced to join him on the run to protect herself and her young son, Alexis is now in even more danger: danger of falling for Hunter all over again.

Betrayed by rogue CIA agents after infiltrating an infamous drug cartel, former DEA agent Hunter Cassidy has spent years trying to clear his name. He’s not proud of the things he’s done, and knows he doesn’t deserve a future with Alexis, or the son he never knew he had, but he’s determined to protect them from the men who ruined his life. Convincing Alexis to trust him—and denying his feelings for her—is going to be the hardest mission he’s ever faced.

Katie Reus is a new to me author. Let me start right off by saying-I really enjoyed this book! I am a sucker for long lost loves returning from where ever, so the romantic part of this romantic/suspense book had me even before I finished the 2nd chapter. The suspense part of the book held up very well. I enjoyed the idea of Hunter coming back after 6 years to protect the woman he loved & then finding out he had a son too, set his alfa/caveman/chest-thumping self into action to do everything he possibly could to protect them both. The characters were very well written, the emotional roller coaster they faced in such a short period of time, felt almost real to me. I also liked the emotional & physical vulnerability in Hunter, he was not a machine. The way some of these types of stories are written, the alfa male is sometimes too strong, showing no emotion and can handle anything thrown at him-I don't necessarily like that-no one is perfect don't write them that way (JMO). The only fault I find with this book??? It was a bit short, I would have loved it to be longer.
