Downstroke by Desiree Holt

It's been twenty years since Charley Roper and Dallas Creed parted with great bitterness. In that time, she's made a career for herself with the FBI and private security and he's been a country rock music icon...tumbled to the bottom and risen again. Now someone's trying to kill him, and Morgan Creed wants Charley to protect his brother and find out who's after him. When they meet again after all this time it's obvious the chemistry is still there, stronger than ever. They're older, but are they wiser? Caught up in the bitter wash of memories and the tension of a killer in stalking mode, Charley and Dallas begin a roller coaster ride that is emotional erotic and suspenseful. Is their love strong enough after twenty years to pull them back together?

A really cool aspect of this book is that it starts from the killer's point of view. He's after a famous musician called Dallas Creed. The killer misses his target and has no choice but to try again. Dallas's brother Morgan hires "Roper Protective Agency" which is run by Dallas's former lover Charlie. Charlie and Dallas have a history that goes back 20 years, when they broke up it was not pretty. Now years later Charlie fights her instincts to run the other way as fast as she can, but she feels she can do no other then guard Dallas from a real and dangerous threat. Dallas feels this may be his second chance to have Charlie back in his life, so he uses their time together to try and win her back. This Book is extremely packed with goodies. There's intrigue, mystery, action and hot sex! No one could resist such a buffet to read! Long lost love and second chances is only part of what this book has to offer. I'd like to share with you one of my favorite paragraphs from "Downstroke." "We'll take it slow, okay? I'll give you as much time as you need. Just as long as you don't try to hide from me." She pressed a soft kiss on his lips, more affection than passion but his cock still responded. This is also a true love story. There is nothing that makes a relationship stronger then compromise and Desiree Holt demonstrates it time and time again in her books. Her understanding of relationships and the vast emotions that comes with them makes her books some of the best I have ever read. This Book kept me up very late because I just could not put it down. I had to know what would happen next and how it all tied up together in the end. Not only was the end perfect for this book but the book as a whole kept me guessing. It made a nice change not being able to guess who the killer was from the beginning. LOL So what do I rate this book? I give it 5 STARS!!! I loved it and I recommend it to anyone looking for an awesome read that will keep you guessing long into the night!

Music, steamy sex, a killer on the loose.what more could you ask for? Charlotte (Charley) Roper owns a successful protective agency and has long since forgotten the man who broke her heart, country music star Dallas Creed ... or maybe she hasn't. Morgan, Dallas's brother, contacts Charley and asks for her services, convincing Charley to come to Dallas's concert that night. While she's talking to Dallas someone tried to shoot him. She decides to take the case but keep her heart out of it, but will she find the killer in time? I love music so this book had me hooked right off the bat. I was very impressed with the mystery aspect of the book. The plot stays steady and strong the whole way through. I never lost interest, which sometimes happens for me with the novel length stories. My only nit-pick was that Ms. Holt switched back and forth between first person and third person between Charley and Dallas, it was a bit distracting. That being said, I still really enjoyed this story. Ms. Holt even shows her song writing skills and I must say they are pretty impressive. I'd love to hear the songs set to music. This one is definitely worthy of being her 100th book. The danger and romance are spectacular and I recommend it highly. Originally posted at Whipped Cream Reviews

I usually do not read books written in the first person but I am sure glad I did. Desiree sure knows how to write fantastic romantic suspense with marvelous characters such as Dallas and Charley. There were plenty of plot twists and turns which made this a must read!! Desiree is an auto buy for me and I can't wait till June 1st (Jungle Inferno) and July 1st (Extrasensory) for her next releases. If your looking for fantastic romantic suspense look no further and pick up a Desiree Holt book.
