    Good story line

    This had a good story line that I enjoyed and it was not totally predictable. However, the editing could have been better. It started out fine, but soon there were sentences that obviously started out one way, but then went a different way; it was almost as if the author started the sentence, then went back and re-wrote it without erasing the start of the sentence. If you don't mind the odd word that doesn't quite fit and the weird sentences, then this is a definite read.

    Race to Kill by Rachel Kall is the first book in her new A Love

    Race to Kill by Rachel Kall is the first book in her new A Love and Scandal series. Race to Kill is a romance suspense story, and it is the first book I have read by Rachel Kall, and I am impressed. The story was excellently written and put together so well. From the beginning the story caught my attention, and for the rest of the way I could not put it down. It was an exciting, suspenseful, interesting,and sexy story with a political campaign background.

    Vivian Reese is our wonderful heroine. Viv worked in the campaign for a Senator running for President. An exciting time for Viv, who is early on pushed to the forefront of the campaign, when her mentor and boss suffers a heart attack.

    Marcus Locke is an FBI agent, formerly a Delta Force soldier, who goes undercover, as private security, to investigate campaign funds fraud. While he secretly investigates the people involved in the Senator’s campaign, Marcus finds himself becoming enamored of Viv. Things quickly take a turn for the worse though, as Viv has a stalker and Marcus is assigned by the Secret Service to protect her. Eventually, their sexual chemistry will also bring them together romantically, and they made a great sexy couple.

    There are so many twists and surprises along the way, as besides Viv, other members of the campaign become involved in the mystery. When the President’s life is threatened, the danger becomes very real, and way beyond a stalker or finance crime. Viv and another member of the campaign team are suspected and Marcus, not only must protect Viv, but change his direction of the investigation to find the truth behind these attempts to sabotage the campaign for both parties.

    What I loved about this book was how well, Kall wrote the story, with the campaign storyline, and the overall exciting action, and yet gave us enough of this romance to find ourselves invested into this couple. Both Marcus and Viv, were smart, savvy and great characters. Kall created some great secondary characters, especially Viv’s ex, Scott, who was a former Navy Seal, and I enjoyed how he and Marcus over time became unlikely friends. The two of them worked together to save the day. Race to Kill was a wonderful story, filled with action and suspense, not to mention a great romance. What more could you ask for in a book? I really enjoyed Rachel Kall’s writing style, and will happily read her again.

    Plot twists and turns create a real page-turner in Rachel Kall's

    Plot twists and turns create a real page-turner in Rachel Kall's political romantic thriller Race to Kill
    Rachel Kall's romantic thriller, Race to Kill (A Love and Scandal Novel), is a book that draws you in with its depiction of the behind-the-scenes action of a presidential race. Soon however, the focus really shifts to the interaction between heroine Vivian Reese and undercover FBI agent Marcus Locke. It's apparent that their initial antagonism masks a fierce attraction.
    At first Marcus, who is undercover as a bodyguard for the campaign trying to sniff out campaign finance fraud, swiftly shifts gears when Vivian becomes threatened by a stalker. She's become the campaign spokesperson by default after her boss suffers a heart attack and the media attention seems to be drawing some scary attention to her.
    Marcus moves in with her and soon, well, those sparks may ignite. But all is not what it seems and this book becomes a serious page-turner as Vivian and Marcus try to discover who's behind all the threats.
    This is a fun, fast read and held my interest with the plot twists and turns. I'm looking forward to reading more Love and Scandal novels by Kall in the near future. If you like romance, suspense, and are intrigued with politics - this is the book for you.
    I received an eARC from the publisher through NetGalley for use in this review.

    Sex, Politics and Mayhem! Wow! I loved Race to Kill! Every page

    Sex, Politics and Mayhem! Wow! I loved Race to Kill! Every page in this novel was exciting with twists and turns. Rachel Kall did a great job at keeping me on my toes – if it wasn’t one thing, it was another driving the suspense along. The political issues, the campaign workings, and the relationships were believable. And of course, my favorite, are the hot scenes. Ms. Kall’s sexy scenes had my heart beating fast. 
    Hotness alert! I loved Marc, the hero, who is a true Alpha male. A retired Delta Special Ops, turned FBI agent undercover. His protective instincts were a turn on and his clear immediate interest in Viv was real. 
    I always enjoy reading a smart, educated heroine and Viv was a prime example of this! Heading the PR of a Senator’s campaign is a tough job, but Viv didn’t back down. She knows what she wants, be it career related or men related. 
    If you want to read a hot, new romantic suspense, pick up Race to Kill. You won’t be disappointed.

    This is my first time reading a novel by this new author and I was very pleased. I love special ops books and this hit all the marks. I grew to like Marc and Viv and their hot romance built nicely while the danger and mystery surrounded them. I was also glad that she didn’t get bogged down in politics and kept it about the characters. It is fast paced, full of intrigue and kept me guessing as I quickly turned the pages. I look forward to reading more from Rachel Kall and hope there is a book in the future for a certain Navy SEAL.

    My rating: 4 of 5 ¿¿








    Newly appointed spokesperson for the senator's presidential campaign, Vivian Reece, feels a little bit like a fish out of water at this unexpected development. Especially when, after her first televised appearance, she apparently picks up a stalker. Not prepared to take any chances, the head of the secret service assigns a security specialist to shadow her at all times. Not having had much action on the social front recently, Viv is more than a little distracted by her protector, ex-Delta Force operator, Marc Locke.




    Placed undercover as part of the Senator's security detail by the FBI to investigate campaign fund fraud, Marc Locke finds himself quickly entangled in an unexpected stalking investigation involving the beautiful campaign spokesperson. With the go-ahead nod from his superiors, Marc is trying to use this new twist to try and glean as much information for his own investigation as he can. But with the gorgeous Viv under unknown threat, it seems there is little else he can think of but her.




    When a series of events involving both the president and the senator's campaign offices places Vivian in a suspicious light, the case takes yet another turn. Unsure of who is trustworthy, Marc sticks close to Viv, in fact, he never leaves her side, but it is becoming more and more difficult to keep his true identity from her. Especially since they have gotten very close and personal, and the last thing he wants to do is hurt her.




    ****




    Political intrigue, hot undercover agents, mayhem and murder, gripping suspense and a tentative, unplanned romance....... A complete package!!




    An incredibly fast-paced novel that has no slow moments whatsoever. Very few words are wasted on descriptions other than those that directly impact the story. An intricate plot with lots of twists and turns, but very well executed and clearly outlined so no confusion can exist. It isn't a difficult book to read, but it does require attention, but the fast pace won't allow your mind to wander far.




    I enjoyed the main characters, who were both strong and self-assured to an extent, at the very least on a professional level. They had an easy connection that moved from friendship into a more intimate connection. There certainly was chemistry between Vivian and Marc, although it didn't necessarily leap off the pages and the heat was quite mild and as speedy as the rest of the story.




    I really liked the addition of Scott, Viv's ex, to the plot. He is a likeable ex-SEAL with some handy qualities (yes, Ma'am!) he brings to the table, and added an interesting dynamic. I can see the beginning of the next novel or perhaps as part of the series developing. Maybe that's where Serena, Viv's friend will fit in as well.




    For those who enjoy a little fairly reserved (for my standards) bedroom action with their high powered, high action suspense......this would be a good read!!








    ¿Powerful, clever and tight romantic suspense with a hint of spice!¿
