In DON’T LOOK BACK by Dawn Ryer, she is the only woman worth fighting – or dying – for…

Shadow Ops Agent Thais Sinclair has sworn off falling in love for good. It’s what’s kept her calculated, steady, and on-task in a world dominated by men. She needs nothing and no one but her own wits and strength to guide her. But when she’s slated to shadow the one man who could reveal their entire operation, all bets are off.

Dunn Bateson, illegitimate son of a Southern debutante, has always had to fight harder than the rest to get what he wants. Now, the last thing he needs is Thais following his every move. She is so strong, sly, seductive. . . No woman has ever captivated him so completely. Thais may only have room for her mission in her heart, but is Dunn up to the challenge of showing her that she’s worth every risk he is willing to take?

My Thoughts

First, this review will be short, so I will see this as a mini review. 😊 Now I was invited by the publishers to read and review, so I will say thank you for the opportunity to read this. This is the first book that I have read from this author (I think…) and I can tell you that this book is not a stand alone!!!! You will need to read the first few books in this series.

Now I would have enjoyed this book more if I new before hand that this was not a standalone even though I was told that it can be read as one. I mean when I started reading this novel I was playing catch up here trying to figure out who the bad guys are and the good guys. Another thing that I did not like is this novel kept jumping from character and scenes and times which just made it even more confusing for me. That is one thing that I hate about reading is if I am confused, a story should never make one confused.

Even though I was playing catch up here, because I didn’t read the previous books in the series didn’t mean I will just stop reading this book. I did find this book am okay read and I might have enjoyed it more if I had read the other books in this series. Now what made me keep reading is the chemistry between the two main characters Dunn and Thais and let me tell you there was some very nice sexy scenes in the book which I loved reading. :p That is also one of the reasons why I have read the book in one day.

All in all, this book could have been better for me if I read the rest of the series as I struggled to keep up with this fast pace action and the jumps between characters, times and scenes. I will most probably read this book again after I have read the series, so I can understand the other characters better in the series.
