Review: Running On Empty

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



I love love love this book. The first thought that rushed into my mind while reading this was, why the hell did I put off reading this book for so long?

I have always enjoyed a good romantic suspense that keeps me on my toes. This is so damn good. The prologue hooked me right away, (I never skip prologue because to me they always hold something that makes sense later into a story). I knew something bad is going to happen and when it did, I was really holding my breath to read how this was going to play out.

Declan Steele and Sabrina Fox are undercover agents for a secret government agency. The couple's marriage is a secret known only to a few. On their last night together, Declan tells her that he plan's to leave the agency and start new. But after two months, Sabrina witness her husband blown to bits and pieces on her way to meet him.

Sabrina continues on her missions with a bleeding heart, throwing herself into work as it was the only thing that keeps her growing. But after a successful mission, she's taken. She's locked and bound in a dusty cell. Her captor's voice oddly feels familiar and it's even shocker to see it was her dead husband.

The rest of the book answers what really happened to Declan and why he's back with a vengeance to kill his once beloved wife. I enjoyed the roller coaster ride and many parts of it made me so emotional. I was literally scratching my head to figure, who the real villain is and 50% figured it out toward the end. But it was still a surprise.

Christy Reece is my new favorite author and I'm definitely devouring her other books in the series. The writing style blew my mind away and a few times I stopped to re-read a sentence because it was so good. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good action packed romance.

Spoiler Alert: The book has a happy ending.
