TATE by Susan May Warren, Reviewed by Nicole Cook #ReleaseDay
It is highly recommended that the Montana Marshalls series be read in order, since there is an overall story arc that follows throughout the entire series. The novel Tate continues part of the storyline from the first book in the series Knox, as Tate works as a bodyguard for Glo Jackson and her band, the Yankee Belles, after a bombing following one of their performances. Additional violence and threats continue to put their lives in danger. Glo’s mother Senator Reba Jackson is a potential presidential candidate and continued threats against her campaign have also targeted Glo. Navy SEAL Ford Marshall plays an increased role in this novel, as he assists his brother Tate in trying to find the bomber.
Susan May Warren is a master at writing incredible family-centered novels that draw readers closer to their faith. She shares the spiritual message that we are enough because He decided we are. Readers will enjoy the banter between Glo and Tate and the realistic dialogue throughout the novel. The pain that bodyguard Tate feels while protecting Glo as she goes on dates with another man is heart-wrenching as readers hope for Tate to get his happy ending with the woman he loves. There is a cliffhanger at the end of the book that leaves readers anxiously awaiting the next book in the series, Ford, which releases in September.
Tate is highly recommended for fans of contemporary romance with a blend of adventure, and readers who enjoy novels by authors such as Becky Wade and Denise Hunter.
*I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author/publisher and was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are mine. After reading the e-book copy, I enjoyed Tate so much that I also pre-ordered my own paperback copy.
What will it cost this bodyguard to save the woman he loves?
Bodyguard, Tate Marshall, has always been the family troublemaker. Maybe it's his impulsive propensity to get into the middle of problems that don't belong to him. But once in, he can't stop himself from trying to solve them and that includes his recent dilemma. He's in love with the woman he's supposed to protect, the beautiful Gloria, "Glo" Jackson, daughter of US Senator and presidential hopeful Reba Jackson. A member of the country band, the Yankee Belles, Glo was targeted in a recent terrorist attack designed to deter her mother from running.
Glo is as stubborn as her mother, and Glo isn't about to hide from threats, at least the kind that won't cost her heart. Because she's already paid a terrible price for the war on terror, and she can't let herself love a man who might die, especially because of her.
As the campaign heats up and the threats deepen, so does the attraction between Tate and Glo. But when they're discovered, and Tate is fired, what will he do to protect the woman he loves?
And what will Glo do to keep from losing another man to the costs of war?
The gripping second installment of the Marshall Family series.
