If you loved the Redstone series, you'll like the first book in the Redemption series. Loved how badass Skye is. All the things that she did out of love for Colt. Enjoyed getting introduced to all the Redemption characters, Mercer, MG, Brooks, Leighton, Gage, and especially Savage. Can't wait to see who's book is next. This book involves doing what's right even when you have to play dirty. Loved it. Great read.

RESURRECTION Resurrection is Katie Reus' newest book that is based in Redemption Harbor. Once again, Katie has written a great book with well developed characters. This storyline kept me engrossed through out the book. This story is about Skye and Colt, and about second chances. I very much enjoyed this book and am looking forward to more in the Redemption Harbor series. I received an ARC for my honest review.

Love, love, love this new series! I am usually a PNR or Scifi romance type of girl but I will read romantic suspense if it's from Katie Reus. I adore the way she portrays her heroines. They are all strong, confidant and will kick your bootie if you mess with someone she holds dear. The heroes are all swoony and alpha but never obnoxiously so. Packed full of action, suspense and some seriously -melt your ereader- smexiness, Resurrection is a fabulous start to an exciting new series! I can't wait to see what comes next!

She faked her own death… Skye Arévalo left the CIA and faked her death to protect Colt Stuart, the only man she ever loved. Months later, a brutal kidnapping draws her to quietly infiltrate a dangerous cartel. Just when she thinks she’s home free, things go horribly wrong and she escapes with bloodthirsty enemies on her heels…only to find herself face to face with a bewildered and angry Colt. He’ll cross every line to save her… When Colt, a former Marine, finds out the woman he loved betrayed him, he’s shocked and hurt, but it doesn’t stop him from breaking every law on the books to keep her alive. Unfortunately, it might not be enough to stop a powerful enemy who will do anything to see the world burn and Skye dead. Review: Very exhilarating start to this new series! I was hooked from page one. Though this is the love story of Skye and Colt, it really is about two couples because Skye and Colt both go to rescue Colt's friend Mary Grace, who everyone thinks is dead. It is very touching and heartwarming when Mary Grace and Mercer are reunited. Back to the main couple Skye kicks butts and takes names and if this was not a romance she could totally be an action super star. Colt is pretty awesome too, but I love that Skye takes matters into her own hands and is more than capable of taking care of everything. The story was very good and for being a first book in the series it was not weighed down with a lot of build up. We did get to meet a bunch of people who I assume will be part of future books. The sexy times were hot and made sense for the characters and the story. Lots of action and things blowing up if you like that in a story. The scenario of the story is highly relevant in today's world. I would highly recommend this if you are looking for a sexy, action-packed romance. 4.5Stars *I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book provided by the Author.*

I can already tell this series will become a favorite. Book 1 in the Redemption Harbor series is FIRE!! This needs to be a movie franchise. Resurrection is like reading an action movie and I absolutely loved it. Colt and Skye are amazing. Not to spoil anything, but I so enjoyed their "reunion". Colt had no problems letting his feeling be known regardless of who was in the vicinity. That scene had passion, angst, and humour. The cast of characters just puts the icing on the cake. You get to know this family quickly and what they are willing to do for each other. The pace of the story is fast and heart stopping at times, but an incredible read. This book also sets up how the characters end of working together and a small insight into the next story. I am waiting impatiently for the remaining books in this new series. ARC received by author in exchange for an honest review.

Losing someone you love hurts. Colt is devastated about losing Skye, the love of his life, and he is also try to cope with the disappearance/death of a very close friend. When he gets information that this friend may actually still be alive and he goes to look for her, the last person he expected to find with her was Skye. They have to work through the betrayal of Skye faking her death and figure out a way to get back home and to keep their friends safe. This is a great beginning to a new series.

Resurrection by Katie Reus Espionage and deaths. And selflessness. Good people helping the world get rid of the bad. Cornerstone of a Katie Reus novel and character structure. A fast, furious read moving from one thrilling moment to the next dangerous predicament. First in the Redemption Harbor series. I really enjoyed the book and especially the Chapter headings. They are fun and indicative of the content. And they are consistent with the type of storyline: action, adventure, and swoon-worthy romance. Chapter 3 "I believe in karma. I also believe in a good throat punch when necessary." Chapter 4 "blood makes you family. Love and loyalty make you family." Chapter 6 "If she doesn't scare you a little, she's not the one" Chapter 10 "Some people just need a high five. In the head. With a golf club." Chapter 12 "When you show up with a dead body, a real friend grabs a shovel and doesn't ask questions" Chapter 13 "Social awkwardness is my super power" Chapter 15 "I'm yours. Now and always." So much fun. I will be waiting anxiously for the rest of this series. I received a copy of his book via NetGalley. I also purchased a copy for gifting.

Skye Arevalo was a dedicated and deadly CIA agent until she faked her own death. She was forced to betray her principles by a man greedy for power. He threatened to kill Colt Stuart, the man she loved. Keeping under the radar is important if Skye is to stay alive. When she learns that Mary Grace, Colt's dear friend, is being held prisoner by a drug cartel leader, she decides to rescue her to honor her love for Colt. What she doesn't expect is to see the angry man she lost her heart to. Can they find their way back to each other after her deception? Skye is a powerful and feisty woman. She's deadly and determined to accomplish her plan. I like a woman who can stand up for herself. Colt is an Alpha protector who has spent his life fighting to make the world a better place. He wants to make things safe for his love. The chemistry between Skye and Colt is powerful and sensual. I wanted them to put the past behind them and find their HEA. The secondary characters are strong personalities that add so much to the story. I want to know more about them. Resurrection is a suspenseful story that has unexpected twists. I couldn't stop reading until I knew what happened. Katie Reus has written a powerful story which is a great beginning to this new series. I'm looking forward to more romantic suspense in the Redemption Harbor series. I received a copy of this book which I voluntarily read and reviewed. My comments are my honest opinion.

If you haven't read a Katie Reus book then I highly recommend you do so! This is an author not be missed whether it's her paranormal romance books or her romantic suspense books. With that being said, this is the first book in a new series for her. It's about Colt Stuart and Sky Arévalo, who are both CIA operatives. Colt has 7 friends who he considers to be his family. He will do anything and everything for them. Sky faked her death to protect Colt, who was not only her partner but her lover. She left behind everything to keep him safe. When she decides to go help someone who was kidnapped, she comes face to face with Colt. And he has the shock of his lifetime realizing Sky is really alive. Once he finds out why she did what she did? All bets are off and they will do anything to fix the problem and be together, along with help from his family! This is a great start to a new series for her! I loved Ms. Reus's Red Stone Security series and when it ended I was really hoping there would be a new series that would live up to it! I have to say, this first book definitely lived up to it and in some cases went beyond it! I love how Colt is and how no matter how much he hurts he still knows what he wants and needs and works to get it. I love how much Sky loved him and gave up to make sure that no matter what he was healthy and eventually he would be happy. Together? They were smoking hot! Then you throw in the mix the best friends? I am already in love with them just from the first book! I was hooked from the very beginning of this book and couldn't put it down. I finished it in one night! Loved it!

*** 4.5 stars *** Action-packed, romance-filled, and riveting to say the least; this story will grab you from page one! CIA agent Skye fakes her own death to protect her partner and lover Colt Stuart and all those he holds dear. She’s never stopped loving him and knows she hurt him deep but she’s also sure what she did was for the best. When a dear friend of Colt is kidnapped she sees her rescuing as an opportunity to somewhat make it up to him, and although he might never know it was she who rescue his friend, she still goes for it. What she didn’t account for was that Colt would find out she didn’t die and once he did he wouldn’t let her go ever again. Not only that but he would go to extremes to protect her and never have to lose her again. OMG! This story! To me it had one of the best opening convos ever! It was funny while setting the pace for what was coming. Sky was one of the most assertive, self-confident, witty, and cool heroines I’ve ever read. Kudos to the author for giving me such an awesome character. Colt is your typical self-assured and overprotective alpha CIA agent that will do anything to protect those he loves (and I mean AN-NY-THING), however what’s great about his relationship with Skye is that he sure as hell knows Skye’s boundaries and as the gracious and romantic lover he is, he also knows how to make her feel safe and cared for. The dynamics between the friends was heartwarming and was pulling my heart strings at every corner. As a reader I could feel how much they really cared for each other. Once the “mission” is officially over we are immediately introduced to the next one and luckily we don’t have to wait too long as the second installment will be out within the next few months. This story was the perfect introduction to the series and if it’s any indication of what the whole series will be then we sure are in for a heck of a ride. I received this book from the author at no cost to me and I volunteered to read it; this is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher.

Katie Reus keeps grabbing this NetGalley reviewer’s attention. First with her O’Connor Family series, then with Saved by Darkness. Now Resurrection has risen the bar with its action packed drama and won’t back down/will risk it all for each other main couple. If you are into private security but also work with government agencies backdrop themed tales, you likely will enjoy Skye, the beautiful, tough as nails, warrior type heroine who does whatever it takes to keep Colt, her GI Joe, alpha protective, extraction expert hero safe. Speaking of which, this good guy hero thought he lost her once but isn’t about to let her go again, folks. Not only do they team up together, but Colt’s circle of friends band together with them, as well. It’s book 1 of a new series so you can bet you’ll be seeing all these sub-characters eventually all get their own HEA. With explosive drama, inevitable fallout, and a traitorous bad guy who tries to ruin it all, the storyline unfolds with back together like they were never apart VERY steamy scenes and passionate kisses. For those who need to know upfront, there are no love triangles, no cheating, and no OW/OM drama, as well. As usual, Ms. Reus gives us a likable main couple you’ll be happy to see get their HEA. Savage, a close compadre and co-worker, will take center stage in the next book, Savage Rising, with Olivia, a damsel in distress heroine that shows up at the end of this one. Title: Resurrection, Series: Redemption Harbor (Book 1) , Author: Katie Reus, Pages: 250, alpha main couple, very steamy scenes with lusty language, stayed celibate during separation, explosive drama, some violence. Book 1 - Resurrection (Skye & Colt), Pages: 250, 7/11/17 Book 2 - Savage Rising (Olivia & Savage), Pages: 250, 9/26/17 Book 3 - To be announced (This review is based on an advanced reader copy distributed via NetGalley in exchange for a fair review.

The first book in a new series and wow do we get an excellent story. Skye faked her death and left Colt heartbroken and confused. Colt is out to help his best bud who is losing his mind thinking his wife was killed. Colt thinks otherwise, so he is off on a mission. What will Colt think when he finds more than his friend's wife? Absolutely riveting story. I read it in one sitting. We get suspense, action and romance what more could you want?

4.5 stars--RESURRECTION is the first installment in Katie Reus’s contemporary, adult REDEMPTION HARBOR romantic suspense series focusing on a tight-knit group of friends who grew up together but now work Black Ops for the CIA. This is CIA operatives Colt Stuart and Skye Arevalo’s story line. Told from several third person perspectives including Colt and Skye including both past and present time lines, RESURRECTION focuses on the reappearance of not one but two women in Colt Stuart’s life-his life long friend Dr. Mary Grace Mercer, and the woman he loved fellow CIA special operative Skye Arevalo-both women presumed murdered by the Mexican Cartel. When information about the possible sighting of Mary Grace Mercer comes into Colt’s possession, our hero goes rogue hunting for the woman he has known most of his life. Enter Skye Arevalo, the other woman Colt has been grieving, and Mary Grace’s would-be rescuer from the Mexican Cartel. What ensues is the rekindling romance between Colt and Skye; Skye’s attempts to return to the scene of the crime, and the fall out of Colt’s love for a woman who also went rogue, months before. RESURRECTION is a second chance story line; a rekindling romance between Skye Arevalo-a CIA operative who faked her own death to protect the an that she loved. Not only did Colt mourn the loss of his friend Mary Grace Mercer but his best friend, Mary Grace’s husband, slowly succumbed to the grief and the loss. Struggling not to fall victim to his own grief, Colt heads out in search of Mary Grace only to find Skye Arevalo alive and well. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and intense. We are introduced to Colt’s fellow CIA operatives-Brooks, Gage Yates, Zac Savage, and Leighton Cannon. Their lifelong friendship shows in the love and support they give one another throughout the story line. The requisite evil has many faces including David and Rafael Ramirez. and Mark Gianni- a man Skye and Colt know only too well. We are also introduced to Colt Stuart Sr-our hero’s father, and a man who is also a former operative for the Agency. RESURRECTION takes the reader from Mexico to Texas, to Redemption Harbor, South Carolina. Redemption Harbor is home and the location of the security firm that Colt envisions for their future-together. The premise is entertaining, suspense filled and intriguing; the characters are animated, engaging and spirited-the sense of camaraderie is heartwarming and fun. The romance is sensual and passionate. RESURRECTION is a fantastic start to a new romantic suspense series by the talented Katie Reus.

What an amazing book. Skye is a strong and smart woman who will do anything to protect the man she loves, even fake her own death. Colt loves Skye with every beat of his heart. He is in agnoy when she dies. What happens when these two come face to face? Can they make it a second time around? Colt is holding on and wont let go. This book has everything you could want in a book, hot sex, tons of action, amazing chemistry between characters.

Oh, I really enjoyed this one! Katie Reus is a new author to me--I've been meaning to read her for a while, and figured a brand new series (Redemption Harbor) would be a great place to start :) It did not disappoint! Resurrection introduces us to Colt, a CIA agent who has been somewhat estranged from his father but has made his own family by choice from a group of close friends, many of whom he's known since childhood. He's so tight with them all that Skye, his last partner who also became much more to him than a coworker, knew all of them by name even though she had to fake her own death before ever meeting them in person...and then risked it all to save one of them, for him. Okay, I know that all sounds kind of complicated. But I promise it all makes sense the way Ms. Reus writes it--and is a heck of a lot of fun to read, too! Colt and Skye have great chemistry together, and the back and forth between these two is fantastic as well. We meet all of the group members here--some of them more than others--but it's enough to see that this is going to be a great series. We're left with some really strong indicators about what's coming for book two, and I for one can't wait for its release! Rating: 4 stars / A- I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Great Romantic Action Suspense Romance Resurrection is book1 in the new series “Redemption Harbor” by Katie Reus. This has a great group of characters that I am excited to read more about. This book sets the tone and pace for the series and builds the excitement for the next book to come out! Book1 is about Colt and Skye who are CIA Operatives who are also partners and lovers as well. Something happens that makes it where Skye has to fake her death. Colt didn’t take losing Skye well at all. He’s doing everything he can to make it thru each day, but it’s a struggle for him and right now what he is doing to make it is help out a friend whose wife was reported as dead. However, Colt’s gets a lead that she’s not dead and he’s headed to Mexico to check it out. Skye ends up faking her own death in order to protect Colt and the family that he cares/cherishes so much. There is a lot of things that happen that end up drawing Colt and Skye back together and it has to do with Colt’s job in Mexico. There is more to it than what meets the eye. When Colt finds out Skye is alive, he goes thru a range of emotions like angry, betrayed, yet also so happy and relieved. Another emotion he still feels for her is this overwhelming passion. That didn’t “die” with her when she faked her death. Colt and Skye are in a dangerous situation and must rely on each other to get out of this situation. There are many twists and turns with the dangerous situations that they are in. This book has it all –angst, thrills, action-adventure, mystery, secrets, lies, pain, betrayal, twists, danger, passions, and above all, LOVE. This is a must read book—I am looking forward to reading book #2. My Rating: 4.7 stars ***** "I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book in exchange for an honest review***

Resurrection has me excited to see where Katie Reus is going to take this series. There is such a great cast of characters in this first book that it just builds the anticipation for the next one to publish. Colt is a swoon worthy Hero with just the right mix of possessiveness and protectiveness. Skye is a badass heroine who not only can take care of herself, but ends up being a Hero all on her own. To see Colt not feel threatened by this, but actually love her more for it, made these two a great couple to read about. This book was pretty heavy on the action and suspense but I never felt the romance was overshadowed by it. I think that's because this author has a talent for making her main characters so devoted to each other that you feel their love and loyalty in everything they do. I'm looking forward to book 2!

5+ Stars! Resurrection, the first book in Katie Reus’ new series, Redemption Harbor, is absolutely thrilling!! Action packed, hot, steamy romance, and intrigue, all packed into the world of spies. So many twists, turns, and subplots and I ate them all up! Colt Stuart, former Marine and current CIA operative, calls very few people friend and even fewer, family. But his tight knit group of childhood friends, all with special skills of their own, are there for him when needed. After months of mourning the death of his ex-partner and love of his life Skye Arevalo, Colt has a new focus when he hears buzz that his childhood friend Mary Grace, feared dead, may be alive and being held captive by a Mexican cartel. Colt devises a plan to rescue her, only to find once he’s in the territory that someone has beat him to it. And the rescuer sounds suspiciously like a woman from his past. Can it be…? What a page-turner! I could not put this down! I’m on pins & needles with excitement for the next installment in this refreshing new series! Ms. Reus knocked this one out of the park! Highly recommended! *Received ARC from author in exchange for an honest review.

I am new to this author, and now have defintely become a fan after reading this well written complex story. This is the first book in a series that promises to be keep us on the edge of our seats for a long time. The main characters in this one are Skye Arevalo, a CIA agent that to save her boyfriend and his friends, fakes her death, and Colt Stuart, the CIA agent she left behind, who has yet to recover from that “loss”. It’s a story filled with intrigue, rescues, evil people, drug trafficking, kidnapping, and what extreme measures one might do for love . But it’s more than that. It’s a story about the friendship of 6 individuals who became friends in their youth , in the town of Redemption Harbor. Who have stayed extremely close even as adults and who would do anything for each other. That kind of loyalty is rare and precious. The series is appropriately titled Redemption Harbor for I foresee the redemption of each of them and those they will help. I was gifted this copy by Netgalley. The opinions expressed are solely my own.
