Review: Spiraled (Mason Callahan #3) by Kendra Elliot



Blurb from Goodreads:
FBI Special Agent Ava McLane solves crimes; she doesn’t witness them. When she’s trapped in a mall without her weapon as a shooter picks off victims, she hides with a wounded teen and prays for her survival.

But that’s only the beginning…

An epidemic of mass shootings has swept across Oregon. The young shooters terrify the public, committing random murders before taking their own lives. The task force assembled to solve the case—which includes Ava’s boyfriend, detective Mason Callahan—remains stumped. And on top of this chaos, Ava’s troubled twin sister reappears, throwing Ava’s already-tumultuous life into a tailspin.

An old-fashioned cop with a strong sense of duty, Mason struggles to find the cause of the shootings as workaholic Ava spins ever closer to breaking down. But can one detective save the lives of countless innocents—and prevent the woman he loves from going over the edge?
My Review:
 
Romantic suspense is my favorite genre and this series starring FBI agent Ava McLane and Oregon State Police Detective Mason Callahan is quickly becoming one of my favorite series in this genre!  This book was unique because it really focused on the mental health of Ava in doing her job and being a victim of a crime.  These are hard jobs and it made me like Mason even more with how understanding and patient he was throughout the book -- definitely helps to be dating someone in the same line of work!  The action was suspenseful and the mystery was great -- I really enjoy the case solving aspect of these books.

I definitely recommend this for anyone who wants to start a great romantic series or for those who have already started this series -- you will not be disappointed with the latest installment!  You can read my review of book 2 in this series, Bridged, here.

Spiraled comes out June 2, 2015, and you can purchase HERE!
He took her hand, and she felt a quiver shake his fingers.  He slid the cold metal onto her finger and wrapped his hand around it, clenching it tightly.  She looked up, his face close to hers.  "Now I'm sorry I waited," he said.  "If I'd known how f&*@$^! overjoyed I was going to feel at this moment, I would have done it last winter . . .

I love this trope, sub-genre, setting: My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend

I Love This Trope, Sub-Genre, Setting is a new feature on my blog in which I discuss a trope, sub-genre or setting that I love and tell you about books that are shining examples of said trope, sub-genre or setting.  Feel free to play along and please let me know about your favorite books in this realm and whether you like this trope, sub-genre and/or setting as much as I do! Today I am spotlighting the trope of: My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend, which I would define as any book where the heroine either has a crush on or falls for her brother's best friend or her best friend's brother.

I have to confess that I love this trope in nearly all of its iterations!  I have a younger brother so I never got to crush on any of his friends but it's fun reading about that and it's equally as fun as reading about falling for your best friend's brother -- instant sisters!  I know there are a ton of books that I'm missing/haven't read so please let m…
