Review ~ Beneath the Surface by Melynda Price

Beneath the Surface
eARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: September 13th 2016

Publisher: Montlake Romance

He was the last man she wanted to turn to for help. But when freelance journalist Quinn Summers uncovers a shocking secret with the potential to rock Washington, DC, she reluctantly finds herself on his doorstep. Someone intends to silence her forever, and Asher Tate may be all that’s standing between her and a vicious killer.

Overbearing, arrogant, and insanely hot, the ex-marine Special Forces officer turned mercenary for hire is no bodyguard—especially when it comes to the stubborn woman who sets his blood on fire as quickly as his temper. Quinn Summers is a powder keg of trouble just waiting for a match, and he isn’t surprised that the feisty beauty has made some dangerous enemies.

To survive, she’s going to have to play by his rules—and that means stepping into Asher’s world, where he controls the playing field. But in his fight to save Quinn’s life, he just might end up losing his heart.…

My Opinion

Having enjoyed a few books by this author within the last year, I was eager to get my hands on Beneath the Surface. The fact Asher is an ex-marine only made me more eager to read it since I'm enjoying that trope right now.

Just like her other books, Beneath the Surface captured my interest and held my attention the entire way through. The romance is mixed well with the suspense and mystery, and overall I enjoyed the plot.

I'm not going to say too much on the story as I don't want to ruin the twists that evolve as you get further into the book. However, it was a thrilling, edge-of-your-seat read. The characters go from hating each other to love and although there may have not been as much chemistry as in previous books, I liked the tension between Asher and Quinn.

The only reason I didn't rate this a five is because of the stupid mistakes some of the guys made. As trained professional, they did some things that I questioned whether or not were believable. Also, I wasn't always sure the killer was as smart as he was made out to be. He also made some mistakes I questioned and things were left up to chance a bit too much.

Overall though, I really enjoyed this book. I will definitely be reading more and hope Jaxson is going to get a book soon.
