Betrayed by Rebecca York

To Trust...
Rockfort Security operative Shane Gallagher has been brought into S&D Systems to find a security leak. Confidential information has been stolen, and Shane suspects Elena Reyes, a systems analyst with the access and know-how to pull it off. As he finds excuses to get close to her, their attraction is too strong to ignore, but how can Shane trust the very woman he's investigating?

Or Not to Trust
Elena has spent her life proving herself, but now she's risking it all: everything she's worked for, and her growing feelings for Shane. Much as she wants to trust the devastatingly sexy, hard-as-nails investigator, she can't let herself fall for him...the stakes are too high.

Betrayed by Rebecca York is the 2nd book in her Rockfort Security series. I enjoyed the first book of this series, and was looking forward to reading this. Happily, Rebecca York continues with another suspenseful and captivating action packed story. Shane Gallagher, whom we met in the last book is our hero and from the get go, he is the kind of hero we all want to save us, not to mention, totally swoon worthy. Elena Reyes is our heroine, and she was a sweet and charming one; not the usual kick assed heroines. The story starts with a bang, as while in HR, Elena overhears someone threatening the director, and before she could walk out, they are all hostages. Flying through the window comes our hero, Shane. During the scuffle, Elena manages to help him stop the intruder. What follows is a very exciting story, where Shane and Rockfort Security have been contracted to find the mole in S&D, who is leaking confidential information about a new product. What Elena doesn’t know is that she is one of the suspects, since she works in the IT area, where the leak is suspected. Having been literally thrown together, Shane and Elena find themselves attracted to each other. In a short time, as the danger escalates, someone is after Elena to get them the information they want, and they are threatening to hurt her brother. Shane realizes that Elena is not the real culprit, and works with her to find out who is. In a roller coaster of a ride, at every turn, they are attacked, and barely escape with their lives. Rather than give any spoilers, I will only say that this was an enthralling adventure, with pulse pounding action. Shane, Elena and the other members of Rockfort Security must be a step ahead to find the true perpetrator. There are also some twists along the way. The romance between Shane and Elena started off sweetly, as she was a virgin. But then it became very steamy, as they both could no longer hold back their lust. They made a great couple. Rebecca York does it again with another exciting romance suspense that will keep you turning the pages until you reach the end. I finished this book in one day. I totally recommend you to read this series.

Hott Synopsis: Betrayed. Elena Reyes has been betrayed every time her parents chose her brothers safety and happiness over hers. Betrayed. Shane Gallagher was betrayed when his wife chose to sleep in another’s bed. Betrayed. Company secrets have been stolen and employees are turning up dead. Can these two trust each other long enough to stay alive? Hott Review: Like strong males that want a woman who is sweet and tough? This is the book for you! I really enjoyed the suspense in Betrayed. There wasn’t too much of a mystery, but this was action packed and filled with adventure!! There were several areas of steam in this novel, none was very long nor terribly descriptive. This book won’t be for everyone. I believe that some will fault Elena for her actions and believe that she’s weak because of her choices.

A pretty good RS book. I enjoyed the turns the book took and didn't see who one of the bad guys was. I was heartbroken by the tragedy delivered ultimately to Elena. One of the things that sort of frustrated/annoyed me was Elena's constant "Oh, I'm supposed to be a good girl because of my upbringing" which was repeated to the point I felt it was a major hang-up, not just her upbringing. Book provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

While I love a good romance book, this book is so much more than that.   The drama and suspense was what really held my attention.  I loved the intrigue of not knowing who the bad guy really was.  I was pretty sure Shane was a good guy, happy to say I was right.    Yet, I was kept on my toes guessing who was really behind the chases and gun fights just to get a program from Elena.    The surprise at the end was worth reading the entire book.   Shane and Elena’s romance was interesting.  I had a hard time with Elena seducing Shane and giving him her virginity so quickly.    Also the circumstances of their first time were just off to me.   As the story continued I could see more and more how their feelings kept growing.   It was also hard for me to believe that Elena would brush off her parent’s strict upbringing at the first hot guy that wanted her.    I enjoyed their stories, but a lot of it seemed a little off to me.   I enjoyed Betrayed, reading it in less than 24 hours.   I would recommend it to someone looking for a quick and easy read.

I received a copy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review Betrayed is the second book in the Rockfort Security series. It features Elena Reyes, who works in IT at S&D Systems. Shane Gallagher is brought undercover into the company because someone is after a valuable program. Everyone is a suspect and under investigation, but none more so than Elena, who has the ability & access to steal the information. A harrowing incident at work, they go out to eat a couple times. Shane is attracted to Elena, but doesn't completely trust her. It is put to the test when they are forced to go on the run, in order to discover who is after the revolutionary software... and to save their lives. Fast paced suspense involving a brave, loyal woman and a tough, resourceful man, who go from lusting to loving while fighting against the odds.

I usually really like York's writing style,but for so reason this book just didn't grab me as much as her other books I've read. Maybe it was the way every single thing was described to me leaving me with nothing to imagine for myself. Maybe it was that I never really felt any chemistry between Shane and Elena. And I was completely disappointed with their first sex scene. There was about three paragraphs and nothing exciting about it whatsoever. The dream sex was so much more descriptive. I could never really get to the point where I liked Elena. She was just way too naive and beaten down by her paranoid weird ass family. Shane was all strong silent and distrustful of women, including Elena, but then threw himself at her declaring his love. Just didn't feel it. Saying all that I still read the book and thought it was okay but definitely done before. I'll be reading the next book in the series and really hope its better then this one. Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC.

BETRAYED by Rebecca York is a fast paced Romantic Suspense. #2 in the "Rockfort Security" series, but can be read as a stand alone, with re-occurring characters. See, "Bad Nights". Shane Gallagher, Rockfort Security operative, and sent to investigate S&D Systems, due to a security leak. Elena Reyes, a systems analyst, who is suspected of stealing confidential information. What will one due to protect a sibling, deserving or not? All is not as it seems. Trust or not to Trust, that is the question! Fast paced Romantic suspense, thrill ride from beginning to end.

Betrayed is a high velocity story based around corporate espionage.  Shane Gallagher and his firm is hired to uncover the person(s) responsible for stealing company development secrets. Elena Reyes is in the perfect position to be the person behind these thefts. Shane is magnetically drawn to Elena and his interest isn't just as a suspect. But the deeper he digs the more the clues point toward Elena. Guns blaze and someone will stop at nothing to get the next best program technology even if they have to kill, betray and blackmail to get it. Although there is quite a few repetitions in the characters thoughts, both Shane and Elena had some other character issues as well. Shane has serious emotional damage that created major trust issues while Elena is portrayed to have extreme intellect but also an uncanny naivete. That didn't really work for me, you can't be that naïve and be that smart. My biggest character connection issue was the instalove relationship.  Don't get me wrong, I still enjoyed the guns blazing, running for your lives, solve the mystery before your doomed plot. You can't help but be caught up in the fast paced, action packed, explosive scenes. Betrayed definitely provides the bang for those of us who enjoy a high speed adventure. I give Betrayed 3 1/2 action stars.

Usually I don't pick up a novel that is in the middle of a series if I haven't read it's predecessors. But I made an exception for this one and I'm glad that I did. And this is the first book that I've read by Rebecca York ... I'm now looking forward to more things from her. At least the next in this series. First, I was REALLY impressed with the beginning sequences. She used the word blood spatter. Spatter. Unlike most authors who use splatter or splash or whatever. Hey, don't shy away now, this is just a small part. Very small part and not the focus of the book but it was the use of the correct term that made me love the author in the first handful of pages. Don't look at the screen all weird, wondering why I'M weird. My dad was a criminalist (crime scene investigator) when I was growing up and I had a totally un-normal childhood because of it. For one of my science fairs, I did bullet identification and at another one, blood spatter. Yeah, it was creepy. My teachers probably thought that I was psychotic. But it's what I grew up with ... heading to Dad's lab to check stuff out. Anyway ... that's why I was so impressed with the correct words. It really had no influence on my rating, but I was tickled, so I wanted to mention it. Okay, let's see ... I really liked the characters. You really got to know where they came from and why they act like they do and all of that. There were some times that I thought their rationalization for some actions were a little shallow. I think that some scenes could have delved even further ... gotten grittier. But it didn't ruin the book. There were a few surprises, for the most part, I kind of picked pretty much everything out. If you can still enjoy a novel when you know what is going to happen, that says a lot. I really wish that we could have gotten to know some of the secondary characters a little more - I would have been okay if the novel had stretched out a little longer so that I had a bit more background. All in all, this novel got me interested in the series and I'm pretty interested in reading the next one and pretty much anything else that York comes out with.
