Saving Rain by Karen Anne Stewart

Genre: Contemporary, Romance, Suspence, Mystery, Crime

Raina has tried to forget her past, forget the pain, but when she finds herself staring straight into the fury blazing in her ex-boyfriend's eyes, her dark past comes rushing back. Furious with herself for actually having chosen someone like her father, she uses that anger to her advantage and fights for her life...and for her future that she prays will involve the man she can't seem to get out of her head. Kas is a natural leader, a fierce fighter, the type of man you send in when you need to get the job done. He is a courageous hero who is used to risking his own life to save others, but can he save the one who has captured his heart from her horrific past and the men who are hell-bent on destroying her? As Kas and Raina try to navigate through the twists and turns of a deviously intelligent human trafficking group, they find solace in each other's arms. Can they infiltrate the trafficker's tight ring, saving the innocent lives from imminent danger before it's too late?

My Thoughts:

Normally I'm not interested in crime / mystery types of books. I mean I like my books with a bit of mystery but any ways I still found this book really interesting. I just couldn't put it down. I loved that there was more then one point of view so I got to see what everyone was thinking and what their intents were. I loved Raina's character, she was a strong women getting over her past and many times you seen that past of hers break through with her actions. I loved that rather then becoming a problem herself she chose to better herself and become what she could she couldn't be. It was interesting hearing about her past. I loved that she was sassy, smart and spoke what was on her mind at times. I liked Kas's characters he was caring and did what he had to do to protect the ones he cares for. This book was fast pace and there was never a dull moment. Overall I give this book a 4.5 of 5 stars! Highly Recommend!

Shattered when Raina runs after his marriage proposal, Kas is hell-bent to find her and bring her home, where she belongs. He will bend every law necessary to do so, willing to do anything to protect Raina from her demons and the men who haunt her, going as far as placing his career and life on the line to save hers. Raina will give up everything she has worked so hard to achieve, even flee the country to keep Kas from the wrath and powerful reach of her abusive father.

In the midst of the FBI team closing in on the Ghost, another ghost from Raina's past taunts her, promising that she will be his. Meanwhile, a different trafficking ring is gaining strength in New Jersey. Michael solicits Raina's help, needing her smooth, sultry voice to win the audition for the new singer in the ring leader's swanky night club. Raina knows her life is in jeopardy with the dangers of being undercover, but she is blindsided when she discovers that it's her heart that is threatened with a mortal blow.

Raina tries to heal from the nightmares of her dark past as the grisly bodies of innocent victims surface when the team gets closer to discovering the identity of the man responsible for the infuriatingly clever and powerful slavery ring. When Raina finally comes face to face with the Ghost, he quickly engulfs her in a twisted game of cat and mouse, delivering a veiled threat as he slips through her fingers. As the ghosts of her past and present ensnare her in their deadly web, Raina realizes the danger has just begun.

My Thoughts:

Arg!! That ending! I must make this review quick so I can see what happens next. This review is going to be very similar to the first book. I loved the characters, the story line is great. Never a dull moment, there are so many twists and turns that'll leave your head spinning. I loved that there was more then one point of view and thought it was interesting getting the little tidbits of what was going on with rains ex boyfriend which left me and I'm pretty sure other readers wondering when he would pop up and question what would he do? I loved everything about this book and impatient to read the next book. :-) 5 of 5 stars! Highly Recommend!

Finally able to put her harrowing past to rest, Raina looks forward to her future with Kas, but the Ghost has other plans. As the FBI team gets closer to taking down the largest human trafficking ring in the modern world, the Ghost begins a wicked game, making Raina the pawn and the target. Never before encountering a worthy adversary, he's fascinated by Raina and is enjoying the refreshing challenge of her intellect.

The danger ignites to a blazing new level, and Kas struggles between the need to finally exorcise the Ghost and his need to protect his wife. Tension mounts as an internal battle wages, tormenting Kas as he watches Raina put her all into taking down the man responsible for horrific sex slavery and gruesome deaths. When a new player takes control, Jefferson orders the end of the Ghost's game with Raina, which results in one final, devastating act, leaving Kas desperate and willing to do whatever it takes to save whatever means necessary.

My Thoughts:

This trilogy was fantastic and I loved the end. Perfect ending for a perfect trilogy. If you are looking for book that'll keep you on your toes wondering whats going to happen next this trilogy is for you. I seem to be repeating myself for this trilogy. Just know that these books will keep you hooked till the very end. If you get one book you must get all three because the cliffhangers are going to want to know whats going to happen straight away.

These are a must reads be sure to get these books and put them on top of tbr lists! 5 of 5 stars!
