Run From Fear: Forever's Romantic Suspense Blog Tour Part 2
Run From Fear by Jami Alden is a thrilling and chilling read about Talia Vega as she continues to try to rebuild her life after the nightmarish experiences that she has had that left her scarred in body and mind. Jack Brooks has watched her from afar, fearing to reveal to her the strength of his attraction to her even as he strives to keep her protected. Talia’s actions have revolved around protecting her sister Rosie and trying to overcome the nightmares from her past but she has no idea that Jack has been in the background for the past two years, waiting for her to heal. Eerie occurrences that rekindle the horrors from her past cause Talia to discover that her feelings of security may have been built on a fragile web of deception and someone is out to terrorize her yet again. She has to decide whether to trust and open up her heart to Jack who has his own wounded past to deal with even as she fights against the evil that threatens all she has worked so hard to overcome.
A suspenseful and gripping tale that will keep you on the edge of your seat even as you root for Jack to find a way to reach Talia’s heart. The horrors experienced by Talia have scarred her but not yet destroyed her but one wonders how much any one person can overcome. Some of the secondary characters are somewhat two-dimensional and there seem to be some inconsistencies in the villain’s behavior at the end which is a bit rushed and more condensed than I would have liked but overall this was a very entertaining read. The touching and passion-filled love scenes are nicely contrasted with frightening and creepy descriptions that seesaw the reader’s emotions as the tension gets wound tighter and tighter. A mesmerizing read that will garner more fans for a talented author.
