Editorial Reviews

Linda Castillo
Dixie Lee Brown delivers all the goods in high style: romance, adventure and suspense-with a generous helping of sexy that will leave readers clamoring for more. The talented Ms. Brown writes the kind story of romance readers crave: sexy, fun and filled with adventure and suspense.
Publishers Weekly
12/09/2013
In the third Trust No One contemporary romantic suspense novella (after When I Find You), Brown explores the relationship between mercenaries Rayna Dugan and Ty Whitlock. Rayna has done everything she can to leave behind Ty and their mercenary group, but Ty's past enemies still break into her life, intending to use her as a hostage and force Ty to reveal secret information. But Rayna is no damsel in distress, and she handily fights the physical battle for her safety as well as the emotional battle for Ty's heart. The plot moves quickly through the essential reveals, never keeping anything back for longer than necessary, but the same can't be said about the main characters, who switch between emotional extremes at the slam of a door. Despite the occasional whiplash, Ty and Rayna's relationship conflict is nearly as entertaining as their beatdowns on the bad guys. Agent: Dawn Dowdle, Blue Ridge Literary Agency. (Feb.)

    Love tough alpha heroes and heroines capable of kicking butt? Lo

    Love tough alpha heroes and heroines capable of kicking butt? Look no further. I love Ms. Brown's Trust No One series and this third book has done nothing but made me want more. I won't give anything away, but just know that Rayna and Ty are HOT and the suspense keeps you turning pages. Do yourself a favor and read this!

    Enjoyed but not quite as much as the first two in the series. Rayna , the heroine got a little on my nerves and I really liked her in the other book. Just a little to much time time taken up with sipping her mouth and not enough moving along with the mystery. Ty made a good hero and I was happy to meet Nick who will be the hero in the forth book in the series. But all in all it was a good mystery and I was able to stay connected to past characters which I am quite fond of. Off to the forth book and Nick.

    This one, not so much. These two characters got on my nerves and I found myself skipping over a lot of the repetitive narratives. Too much "dumb" stuff happened and just not as good as the other two in the series. I expected more of Rayna's and Ty's story.

    Great series!

    268... Throughout this entire series, I'd rell myself "just one more chapter and then I'll go to bed." Before I know it, it's well past 2a.m. I have enjoyed all of the books in this series thus far.

    Drawn out

    I had a hard time with this one. First two were excellent. It seemed to drag all through the middle and then a great ending. Never saw that Bree was lieing. Should have explored the Madison baby angle more. Andre not realistic and asked myself was he good or bad?

    This is the second novel in the Trust No One series that I¿ve re

    This is the second novel in the Trust No One series that I’ve read, and just like with When I Find You, Brown keeps her readers engaged. The plot is suspenseful and has some eyebrow-raising revelations that add unexpected twists to keep the story from being predictable. In the midst of the danger, the hero and heroine struggle to rekindle their stalled relationship, which has never really progressed beyond friendship althoughtheir feelings for each other run much deeper. 




    If You Only Knew features Rayna and Ty, two members of Joe Reynold’s team of mercenaries who do contract work for U.S. governmental agencies. The prologue opens with Rayna explaining to Ty that she’s leaving the team and him behind to pursue a different career and lifestyle.  She’s afraid of how emotionally attached she’s become to Ty, and, after the death of her brother who was also in this same line of work, she doesn’t think she would be able to handle the pain of losing someone else she loved. Unfortunately, Rayna gets pulled back into Ty’s life after she is abducted by a Russian Mobster, an enemy from Ty’s past, with unfinished business to settle.  




    Although this novel can be read as a standalone, I wish that I had read All or Nothing, before I began this book because I felt that, perhaps, I had missed important details on how the death of Rayna’s brother truly impacted her life since her grief seems to still hold her back from living a fulfilling life. I especially enjoy romances where the couple is in the early stages of their relationship, experiencing the excitement and anticipation of getting to know each other and when the sexual tension is the most intense, but I didn’t get to witness that with Rayna and Ty since the story opens with their breakup.  




    Despite missing the newness of Rayna and Ty’s romance, I appreciated the existing level of chemistry and sexual tension between them as their relationship becomes more intimate. Rayna and Ty do have one explicit, sizzling love scene that is also sweet because their union is based upon more than just lust. It’s obvious they are in love since readers get their alternating viewpoints in the narration, but after a while, it became frustrating to watch them go through a lot of unnecessary angst because they aren’t open and honest about their feelings and insecurities. 




    When Andre Komarov abducts Rayna as a means of blackmail, Ty and the rest of the team come to her rescue, and Ty must deal with his unresolved connection to this ruthless criminal. 
    Even though Ty worries he may lose Rayna once his secrets are revealed, he is still determined to protect her until Andre is no longer a threat. Much of the action is focused on rescuing Rayna from multiple kidnappings which eventually becomes overkill. However, the climactic final showdown between Ty and Andre is great and kept me riveted the entire time.  




    Rayna and Ty are surrounded by a great cast of characters. Ty’s former partner, Nate is one of my favorite, and based on the events in this book, I think his character may continue to play a role in the series. Brown also lays the foundation for a potential love story between Nate and another member of Joe’s team, which I hope will be featured in a future installment. The heroes from the previous books, Joe and Walker, continue to play prominent roles in the series, and I like being able to stay connected to these characters. 




    I do plan to backtrack and read the first book so I can fully experience the entirety of this series, yet, I also think readers can still enjoy If You Only Knew without having read the previous novels.

    Review: Trust No One #3: If You Only Knew

    If You Only Knew by Dixie Lee Brown is the third book in her Trust No One series. A fast-paced, intriguing tale of loss, love, bad guys, and danger. I actually forgot how much I loved tales of SEAL's/mercenaries/tough guys as it's been a couple of months since I've read one. It's the extra mix of hotness saving peoples lives or keeping the country safe that makes them so great! Loved this book!

    Rayna Dugan has suffered the loss of her parents and then her older brother and knows she can't handle any more loss. So she's cutting ties with Ty Whitlcok before she falls any further in love with him. His job is dangerous and she can't risk her heart any more.

    Ty's world comes crashing down when Rayna tells him she does not love him and is ready to leave and go to college. He had hopes and dreams of eventually having the picket fence and the loving wife and Rayna was who he could picture in that role. When he gets called into his bosses office and witnesses a "proof-of-life" video from Rayna's kidnappers and receives specific instructions to follow to keep her alive he knows his past has finally caught up with him and is about to ruin everything.

    Rayna is trying to get her life back on track. She has went back

    Rayna is trying to get her life back on track. She has went back to school and trying to get over Ty. She is still a deadly woman but even she has her hands full when a criminal takes her to get to Ty. Now she has to rely on Ty to help her stay safe. Ty knew the day would come when his past would come calling. he never thought they would take Rayna to get his attention. He loves her but knows she wanted to move on but now he doesn't want to let her go. He has to convince her to stay with him.

    Rayna is tough and uses all her might to stay out of the hands of the criminals. She never gives up no matter what. She has tragedy in her past and it helped her become stronger. She thinks she knows what she wants in her future but she really doesn't know. She may not be one to run from danger but she does run from love. Ty is smart, sexy and is one tough man. He has some secrets in his past and he will do anything to protect Rayna. I loved both of these characters.

    From the start I couldn't put this book down. I fell righ into Rayna and Ty's life and had to see what would happen not only with criminals being after Rayna but them caring for each other and afraid to get close. There is so much danger in this book. The criminals won't stop until they get what they want and honestly it shows how strong Rayna is that she never gives up. She continues to fight back constantly. You also see she has a softer sexy side to her. Ty has to face a lot of difficult decisions in this book but he will do whatever to get Rayna and keep her safe. The good thing about them is they don't get along perfect. Rayna lets Ty know she won't just sit back. There is also some laughs in this book. I love when they shop for Rayna. Of course there is the hotness between Ty and Rayna but you see just how special it is to both of them. You really connect with both characters. I have to say the author does an excellent job with twist and turns. Several things happen I didn't see coming and I even felt bad at one tome for one of the bad guys. If you like an action packed book that you will read in one sitting because it is so good be sure to pick this one up.
