FALLOUT by Lisa Phillips (Benson First Responders #7), Reviewed by Rebecca Maney

(Benson First Responders Book 7)
"Jasper had to choose between his parents, his job and Destiny. One choice might lead to happiness. The other was his duty. How on earth was he going to choose?"

Some might assume that Detective Jasper Hollingsworth led a charmed life based on his prominent family and ease of opportunity. Even most of his fellow officers did not know the full story, and up until this point Jasper had been reticent to correct their misconceptions . . . but for Destiny. Destiny Reed had a way of making Jasper believe that second chances might be possible.

"Do we have to understand the why of the pain to find the depth of comfort in healing? . . . you can trust God to bring you through all of this."

" . . . all of this" was proving to be a pretty big test of Destiny's faith. While trying to navigate her feelings for Jasper, her Vanguard Private Security and Investigations team members were being pushed to the limits by a criminal who was determined to destroy everything good about the town of Benson.

While sensational, the plot jumped through multiple hoops at such a rapid pace that it was a little disconcerting. However, on a scale of one to ten, the romantic tension was a solid nine, making this story really fun to read and a solid contribution to the series.
