Review - The Marshal by Adrienne Giordano

The Marshal
by Adrienne Giordano
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: January 1, 2015

His painful past is their present danger.  The last thing US Marshal Brent Thompson needs is distraction from his work. But distraction—in the form of a sexy Chicago investigator—is exactly what he gets. Jenna Hayward is as alluring as she is determined, driven to help apprehend the murderer who killed Brent's mother twenty-three years ago. With a shared mission—and a steadily rising attraction that jeopardizes Brent's resolve to stay unattached—the pair must work together to get answers…before the murderer makes them his next victims.

I really enjoyed this book and was immediately drawn in to Brent and Jenna’s story. It had a great balance of romance and suspense and had a great cast of characters. The mystery had me guessing right up until the end and watching Brent and Jenna fight their attraction and try to keep things professional was so much fun!
She had a way of defusing him and he wasn’t sure if he was losing his edge or he’d met his match.
Brent and Jenna were such great characters and I loved them as a couple. My heart went out to Brent having to deal with his mother’s murder when he was just a boy and then the frustration he was dealing with from his inability to solve the now cold case. Jenna was such a great heroine – smart, strong, sexy – although under the surface she still carried around the insecurities from her beauty pageant days. Brent and Jenna together just made me smile. Whether it was professionally, where they balanced each other out and challenged and supported each other in their investigation, or personally, where their attraction just couldn't be denied, Brent and Jenna just seemed to “get” each other and seemed to understand where the other was coming from. Not that it was all smooth sailing between these two - there certainly were a couple of alpha-male goes all caveman moments, but the angst was kept to a reasonable level and usually worked itself out rather quickly.

As far as romantic suspense novels go, this is one you should definitely not miss – it will draw you in from the first word and keep you turning the paged until the end!

I was given a copy of this book by the author for an honest review.
