Title: Silent Protector
Author: Katie Reus
Series: Verona Bay #3
Release Date: October 26, 2021
Adeline Rodriguez started her life over in Verona Bay. She has a successful business and has friends. The only thing left is a relationship and she wants Mac Collins. Unfortunately when she decides to take that leap it puts her in a dangerous situation.
This was another enjoyable romantic suspense for this series. Adeline has overcome her past but is still struggling to trust Mac, especially after making some mistakes. She was a very strong woman and I loved how she wasn’t afraid to protect herself if she needed to. I also enjoyed that the danger didn’t come from her past like a lot of romantic suspense romances where the woman is on the run.
Mac was a great hero. He has taken care of his brothers since his family died and is a very protective man. He is strong, kind, and very creative with his woodworking. I really liked him. He does make a few mistakes with Adeline but they work it out. These two were just a great couple with minimal angst between them.
Overall, this was a great book and a great couple. I look forward to seeing them pop up in future books. I also really enjoyed Mac’s brothers and wonder if they will have books in the future.
