Forged in Peril by Kendra Warden Book Review

About the Book:

Ambitious paralegal Bristol Chaplin knows that achieving her dream of becoming a lawyer won’t be easy, but there’s a price that even she isn’t willing to pay. When a dark secret threatens to destroy her career, she’s forced to seek help from the man she thought she’d left behind forever.

Private security operative Cameron Forge is content to spend his life serving God and protecting the innocent. But as the woman who broke his heart brings danger straight to his doorstep, he realizes that keeping her safe might be his toughest mission yet.

With hidden threats lurking behind every shadow, they have no choice but to uncover the truth about who is hunting Bristol before it’s too late. Even if it means putting their lives–and hearts–on the line.

My Review:

I am impressed with this debut. The character development was crafted rather well. Bristol is a good heroine even if she was contrary on occasion. That she and Cameron had a history allowed some romance obstacles to quickly develop. Warden's writing style is clear and kept my interest to the end. The plot was pretty well crafted although I was surprised that an informative revelation near the end clarified the villain and the reason for the suspense. The information was previously hidden. I prefer a more subtle lead up to the villain identification with hints along the way.

This is a good debut effort. There will be more novels about the Forge brothers and I will be looking for them.

My rating: 4/5 stars.
