    If you're looking for romantic suspense with more twists than a roller coaster, then you've picked the right book.

    I loved that the hero's not your typical CEO. Zack's a working man with calloused hands, two frisky labs, and a down-to-earth attitude. Thank you, Misty Dietz, for giving us Zack! Romance readers can't bang around a bookstore anymore without an avalanche of a billionaire CEOs!

    I'm here to say Misty's made it safe for us to browse romance again. :-) But back to the story...

    Zack discovers a chilling note and his hackles rise in concern over Ann, a young woman he loves like a big brother. While checking things out, he checks out the attractive heroine, Sloane Swift. Sloane's spunky and hot with a funny way of wording things. Attraction zings the two, but both share a growing concern for Ann's safety.

    She's missing from her home. No one knows where she is, oh, and someone let it slip that's she's pregnant. And just who is the father? This leads to new inquiries, and in the process, Sloane's psychic "gift" reveals disturbing images.

    You won't find spoilers here, other than a burned body turns up and police blame Zack. Zack, it turns out, is a man with a past. I enjoyed the story but felt like things really took off at chapter 9. Then, characters surprised you (and don't we like it when that happens??).

    So, if you like your romantic suspense with a CEO in jeans who comes by his pecs from honest labor and a spunky heroine with a paranormal twist, then Come Hell or High Desire is for you.

    I received the ARC of Come Hell or High Desire for an honest review. I look forward to more books from Misty Dietz.

    When I started Come Hell or High Desire by Misty Dietz, I wasn't

    When I started Come Hell or High Desire by Misty Dietz, I wasn't sure if I would like it. I found the beginning a little slow for my taste.  As the story progress, I found myself unable to pull away. Once the sense of danger started to pick up I was captive to the story.

    Zack Goldman is a man with a past. So, when a friend goes missing he becomes the prime suspect. However, he's trying to prove that he's innocent. Yet there is someone who wants to ruin his life, and this evil person will stop at nothing.

    Sloane Swift gets caught up in all that is going down. She wants to help, but is afraid her psychic ability will cause more harm than good. However, Zack is willing to put his trust into her ability and hope to find Ann before it's too late.

    As I said, I found the story a little slow at the beginning. I guess the whole idea was to build the intensity, by the way it did. As the danger level of story increase, I found myself glue to the story. I had to know who was the real culprit. I have to admit I was shocked and really didn't see it coming. Serious, you would think it was one person, the next thing that person gets killed off. A nail biter of a story. I love the chemistry between Zack and Sloane. Plus, they tend to anchor each other down when things get bad. Overall, a pretty good action book once the crap hits the fan. So, if you are looking for an action book with some twist, you might want to checkout Come Hell or High Desire.

    I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.

    I had trouble connecting with the book through the first couple of chapters. I kept putting the book down and thinking "what have I gotten myself into". BUT as the characters developed I found myself being pulled into the story. There is Zac, a lovable, down to earth CEO, who has had a troubled past. And then there is Sloane, the girl with the visions and full of mystery. I love the mysterious side of the story. It kept me on my toes. I am so glad I didn't give up on this book! For me romance, mystery and a little paranormal are the perfect combination. Well done Misty Dietz!!

    It took me a few chapters to get into this book, but once I got to know the characters and the mystery kicked in, I was hooked! Zack is a lovable CEO-with-a-past, without being the usual billionaire playboy type. The mystery had enough twists and turns to keep me guessing all the way until the final reveal, and the ending was just perfect.

    If you're looking for romantic suspense with a paranormal twist, this is a good bet! The story is set in the average world, so the paranormal is only one thing: Sloane's visions. (No otherworldly monsters, or anything of the sort.) The mystery is well-done and the characters are easy to root for.

    An intriguing mix of suspense and romance with an element of the paranormal. I loved Zack and Sloane, their interactions, the way they called each other on their crap and their chemistry. Their connection felt real, their love the kind that will last. The story was full of twists and turns, Dietz did an excellent job of hinting and teasing, giving just enough information to advance the storyline and keep me wanting more.

    Come Hell or High Desire is an incredible story filled with well written suspense, plot twists, great secondary characters and (my favorite) an intense connection between the Hero, Zack and the Heroine, Sloane, with an emphasis on connection!

    Misty Dietz is a debut author but proves she has already mastered the art of suspense with CHoHD. She starts the story off a bit fluttery as we get to know the main characters and they get to know each other, but then gets down to it and solidly builds a strong plot that so completely captured my attention to where I just could not put the book down because I had to know what was going to happen next. MD did not let me down, she kept me guessing right up to her reveals and with them she delivered with VERY unexpected plot twists, with steamy scenes between Zack and Sloane, and yes, with the all important HEA. She wrapped it all up nice and tight... no nasty cliffhangers!!
