Against Me {Book Review}

Title: Against Me (Cedar Tree Book 3)

Author: Freya Barker

Book Description:

Patience has always been Caleb Whitetail's strength. Quiet and unassuming is what you see with the GFI investigator, but the blood boils hot right under the surface. He kept his distance for years only to see the woman who has held his attention almost lose her life not just once, but twice. He is done standing in the shadows.

Katie Acker, once a tough and athletic security specialist now struggles daily to walk. The closest to family she has are her colleagues at GFI. Especially the man who saved her life and always has her back. So when she unwittingly becomes the focus of a Mexican cartel, it’s no big surprise she finds him right by her side.

With the combustive change in their deepening bond, Katie and Caleb do not see the oncoming danger - until it surrounds them.

My Review:

       This is the first time I have read a book in this series and by this author. I have seen these books before and thought they looked interesting. So I was happy when I got the chance to review this book. Though since I haven't read any of the other two books in this series I'm not familiar with the character's.

      This story starts out with Katie recovering from an accident. Throughout the book Katie struggles with her disability,  both mentally and physically. There were a few times I thought she was a little bit whiney, but I guess that can be expected with everything that she dealing with. I thought she was strong for everything that she was going through.

      I loved Caleb he was sweet and caring, and definitely an alpha male. He was also compassionate. You could tell how much he really cared about Katie. Oh and can't forget about his smexiness!!!

     Both of these characters haven't had a past and you see they both still struggled with their past. But it was nice to get to know both characters.

This book had a little bit of everything in it: action, mystery and suspense. Some of the other couples from the other books are in it. All of these character's in the books seem to have a great connection with each other and prove that you don't have to be blood related to be family.

     I really enjoyed reading this book even though it was the first one for me to read and I'll have to go back and read the first two. I can't wait to read Naomi and Joe in the next book!!!!

     4 Out of 5 Stars for Against Me and I would recommend it.
