Wanting her means putting a target on her back.... Layla’s taste in men runs toward the epic side of awful. With one murderous ex-fiancé already behind her, she’s attempting to start over in Redemption Harbor with the help of her bestie, Nova. And wine. Lots of wine. The very thing that helps her make another epic mistake - trying to kiss Xavier, one of her newest friends. So what if he’s sexy, funny, and has completely taken over her fantasies? Relationships and Layla don’t mix. And Xavier is clearly not interested anyway.

CHASING VENGEANCE Redemption Harbor Series Book 7 By Katie Reus
I am saddened that Book 7 is the last of the Redemption Harbor series. I would say this series has been some of Katie's best work. This is the story of Xavier and Layla. She is rebuilding her life after her ex-fiance almost killed her, but she is starting to have strong feelings for Xavier. He is a hit man with a big list of enemies, so he is afraid he would put her in danger if they tried to have a relationship, no matter how much he wants it. This solid story has suspense, drama, lots of angst, Xavier and Layla have lots of hot chemistry, and it is a very well written story. Once again Sophie Eastlake narrates this story and does her usual great job! I give this 5 stars.

Sweetest Surrender is the 3rd book in “The Serafina, Sin City Series” by Katie Reus. I love the Sin City Series. Katie always brings a solid story, well developed characters that you really care about, and this is no exception. The sexy voice of Jeffrey Kafer is once again narrator for a book of Katie’s. I think I could listen to him read most anything! I listened to this book on Audible.
Vadim is a consultant of Wyatt Christiansen and Angel works at the hotel. She is trying to live under the radar and hide from her past, while trying to help the kids that live next door. When her past catches up with her, Vadim is there to protect and fall in love with her. We get to visit a short time with a few characters from the past.

ENEMY MINE
Katie Reus can always be counted on for a wonderful read. Jeffrey Kafer is once again narrator to her audible book and is brilliant. He has a sexy voice that you could listen to all day long.
Enemy Mine is a novella involving Melina and Kiernan. Melina is a member of the wolf pack, Kiernan is a vampire and his coven and her pack are enemies. They have a short history from a year previously and neither had been able to move on.
This was a very enjoyable read. It has great characters, a great plot line, and great flow. I highly recommend this book. If you are new to Katie's books, this is a good one to try.

HUNTING DANGER By Katie Reus
Hunting Danger is the 5th installment in the Redemption Harbor Series. This book can be read as a stand alone book, but would be enjoyed most with the history of the other books in the series. This series is about a group of friends and each book focuses on one member of the group. They start the Redemption Harbor Consulting. They did this to help people who are in trouble but cannot afford help or to go to the authorities. This is one of Katie Reus' best series yet to date.
This is the story of Nova and Gage. They work together, have chemistry like crazy but Gage is conflicted about acting on it as he is one of her bosses. When she has a friend in trouble and arranges to quietly go borrow the company jet to rescue Layla, he hacks her computer realizes what is going on and then he goes to assist her and keep her safe... Not going to give spoilers, but this is a good read. Katie just gets better as she goes. She is an excellent story teller!! Sophie Eastlake once again narrates this story.

JAGUAR'S MATE A Crescent Moon Novella Book 8 By Katie Reus
This is a paranormal shifter romance, and the 8th book in the Crescent Moon series. It the story of Sapphire, a wolf shifter who is convinced she is cursed in the romance department and Eli, a jaguar shifter. He knows she is his mate after a couple of nights together, but now he has to convince her...

Katie Reus always writes a great story. She has wonderful characters that you care about, there is drama, passion, angst and it is great to see past characters from previous books. It is always like a visit with old friends. I give this 5 stars.

COVERT GAMES (REDEMPTION HARBOR SERIES) BOOK #6 By Katie Reus
This is another great read in the Redemption Harbor Series. I personally think this series is one of the best that Katie Reus writes. I very much enjoyed it and read it pretty much in one setting. This is the story of Leighton Cannon and Luciana Carreras. Lucy is the niece of Alexei Kuznetsov, who happens to be one of the enemies of the consulting group. Leighton, after being asked by his friend to help, is undercover working to discover where some young girls are disappearing to. He is determined to discover Lucy's role in her uncles crimes. She is the manager of one of his upscale hotels. The sparks fly immediately and the chemistry between these two is hot! Katie can always be depended on for an entertaining read that is a well developed story and with characters that you care about. Once again Sophie Eastlake is narrator and does a great job. I could listen to her all day!

SENTINEL OF DARKNESS (Darkness Series #8) By Katie Reus
This is the story of Dagen who is a dragon shifter and Keva who is a human artistic jeweler. He is bowled over the 1st time he sees her, and inadvertently insults her. Now he is determined to make up for it. He has realized she is his mate. She has a bad history with shifters and had to be rescued from her last boyfriend by Conall, who is alpha of the dragons.

This is a sweet easy read. I enjoy the dragon shifters most of all. I like when we get to visit characters from past books. It is definitely like a visit with an old friend. Katie Reus has a gift with spinning a story. Jeffrey Kafer is the narrator and he has an awesome voice to listen to.

Savage Rising is the 2nd installation in the new Redemption Harbor Series. I love this series! This can be read as a stand alone, but I think it always is great to know the characters and some back story. This story brings us Zac Savage and Olivia Carter. She has had a sketchy past but now as a mom is determined to lead a good life for her young daughter Valencia. Her past has returned to blackmail her and threaten her daughter. Zac is former military badass who works for Redemption Harbor and is brought in to be her undercover partner. The sparks fly, the attraction is real and the story is great. I can't recommend this enough. I could not put it down! Sophie Eastlake is once again the narrator for Katie's book.

Erica’s time away from her pack was just supposed to be fun. Then she met Hudson. Instead of the no-strings attached fling, she ended up falling for him. But they’d promised each other that they’d keep things casual. Instead of risking her heart, she ran. Now she’s pregnant - and he’s determined to claim her. But the last thing she wants is to be an obligation to him. Erica could never be a duty to Hudson, but for some reason that’s what she thinks she is. He tried to go slow, to give her space - so he wouldn’t scare her off. Now he realizes that was a mistake.

Wolf's Mate is the 7th addition to the Crescent Moon series and it is a welcome one! I really enjoyed the characters of Hudson and Erica. Erica visiting his pack. Since they have a tremendous amount of chemistry, their no obligation affair catches fire and has both of them secretly falling for the other and wanting to change the rules. She panics and runs back to her pack. Read the book to see how they work it out. Katie Reus has very fleshed out characters that makes you care about them.

INNOCENT TARGET by Katie Reus
Innocent Target is the 4th installment in the Redemption Harbor series. I really enjoy series books, as we get to catch up with previous story characters in the new story. Katie has a such a way of telling a story to make you care about all of them. This is another great story. It has suspense, heat, well developed characters, and a plausible story.
This one brings us the story of Hadley and Axel. She is a college student that is going to be a veterinarian. She has newly discovered family in Brooks and Douglas Alexander, her brother and father. Axel is a former FBI agent that is now a hired gun. When he has a message come across his desk mistakenly that is a contract to kill Hadley he goes to warn her and ends up protecting her and falling for her. I do not like to give to much a way when I review books so that is all I will say. Sophie Eastlake once again does a fantastic job as narrator for Katie's work.
