Katie Reus’ Targeted is 2013’s Best Romantic Suspense Novel! I could not get enough of this electric couple and the excellent suspenseful storyline. I devoured the pages and actually ditched a bit of work so I could finish it. Shh, don’t tell J. Ms. Reus has developed such strong characters with Jack and Sophie. The complexity of feelings going on with these characters is amazing. I felt myself get so attached to these characters and I got to go on this emotional roller coaster with them. The action and suspense is top-notch. There are many nail biting parts of Targeted. There were times I felt like I was watching a summer blockbuster. I was pleased with Sophie’s honest and natural reaction to the things going on and what she learns in the process. Another thing that I am really excited about are the secondary characters! With all the drama going on the reader still manages to get an intriguing glimpse of the other characters that I seriously hope make it into the next books! Targeted is a LOVE story you do not want to miss!
Reus weaves killer romance with superb world-building to give her readers an unforgettable read!!
