My Book Review:
Are you looking for a thrilling romantic suspense series that will take you on an exhilarating roller coaster ride? Well then sit down, buckle up, and get ready to be captivated by the riveting Say Something Series by author Brandy Jellum.
In If I Say Yes, the first book in the Say Something Series, author Brandy Jellum wove an intriguing romantic suspense tale that introduced the reader to literary agent Liza Winter and her boss / unexpected love interest, Reid Harder. In this riveting story, the reader followed the complicated development of Liza and Reid's romantic relationship when Liza's traumatic past resurfaced with a tangled web of haunting and painful memories, hidden secrets, chilling threats, and danger lurking around every corner.
Now in If I Say No, the second book in the series, the reader catches up with Liza and Reid as their relationship continues to grows, but this time it is Reid's troubled past and his revengeful brother Rhett, who complicates their relationship with a new round of trouble and danger that they need to overcome.
This is a fast-paced, multi-layered, and complex story that easily captivates the reader's attention. It has enough intriguing clues, suspense, and thrilling twists and turns that will keep the reader sitting on the edge of their seat, holding their breath, and guessing what will happen next. You can't help but want to keep turning the pages to see what will happen to Liza and Reid's developing romantic relationship when Reid's past resurfaces and sends their relationship into a troubled tailspin.
I think the author did a great job of interweaving a nice balance of romance and suspense throughout the story, it kept my interest and made me want to figure out how the story would end ... but alas ... the author teases the reader with a breath-holding cliff-hanger of an ending that leaves the reader wanting more, only to have to wait for the release of the next book in the series.
If I Say No has everything that a true romantic suspense fan could ever want in a book, but take my advice and read the series in sequential order.
