New Release Book Review (& Author Giveaway): Relentless by Elizabeth Dyer

Title: Relentless
Series: Somerton Security #2
Author: Elizabeth Dyer
Publisher: Montlake Romance
Genre: Romantic Suspense/Mafia Romance
Release Date: June 12, 2018


Ethan Somerton doesn’t do safe or easy. He’s all about the challenge. The risk. In order to rescue one of his agents, Ethan must infiltrate the ruthless Vega cartel. One tiny error—just one—and he’s dead. Which means he needs Natalia Vega. Bright, beautiful, and cut sharper than the most lethal blade, she’s finally reached her breaking point. Now Ethan must find a way to make her surrender.

Caught between desperate choices and no-win situations, Natalia has survived the unthinkable by becoming dangerous, relentless, and feared. When it comes to protecting her sister, there’s no line Natalia won’t cross. But when Ethan storms into her life with his cocksure arrogance, stone-cold competence, and seductive promises, Natalia wonders if she’s finally found a way out. But discovering whether Ethan is salvation or destruction is going to require the one thing Natalia doesn’t have—trust.

As the cartel implodes and loved ones are threatened, Ethan and Natalia are going to have to choose between love, loyalty, and the lies they cling to. They could run, knowing they’ll never be safe. They could fight, knowing they’ll probably die. Or they can trust in each other¼and do something far more dangerous.

My Thoughts

After reading – and loving – Defenseless, the first book in the Somerton Security series, I was eagerly waiting for the next book. Relentless does not disappoint.

Natalia Vega is living a nightmare. She finds herself being manipulated into working for her uncle, a dangerous man involved with drug cartels. She believes she has been ruined by this life. There is no escape for her, and the best she can do is try to save her younger sister from the same life.

Ethan Sullivan is on the opposite side of this battle. His goal is clear; get the information he needs to save a colleague by infiltrating and manipulating players in the cartel. His attraction to Natalia is unexpected but he will use it to his advantage.

The story is told in dual points of view, with several of internal monologues, and I liked getting to know the characters in this manner.

There’s a sumptuous quality in the writing when Natalia and Ethan are together. It’s like they are immersing themselves in each other, both physically and mentally. They are truly getting to know everything about the other, and it makes for a delicious read.

I found the plot to be well crafted, with plenty of twists that kept me anticipating what would come next.

My final thoughts: I think this book would make a great movie and I cannot wait for the next book series. Highly recommended.
