I am a huge fan of continuity series; I want to binge read them one right after the other. I am loving Janie Crouch’s new one for Harlequin. Tanner and Bree are a slow build romance with lots of action to keep things moving. I can’t wait for the next installment. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this novel.

This is book 2 in The Risk Series and we are back with Bree and Tanner. Tanner is being framed for multiple murders. As he and Bree try to figure it out, the body count is rising. This is an amazing suspenseful romance. The many twists and turns sometimes leave you with your mouth hanging open. Just when you thought you had it all figured out…PLOT TWIST! This is a crazy awesome ride! The story line was filled with just enough cat and mouse games to keep you sitting on the edge of your seat through it all. The adventure was great and the characters were diverse. I can’t wait to see what’s next for Bree and Tanner.

This is the second part of Bree and Tanner's story, and it's a doozy! Angsty, dramatic and emotional, it's an intense read. This time, Tanner is in trouble. Dead bodies are piling up and he looks like the killer. Bree and Tanner work together to find the real killer. Bree sure has come a long way. I liked how she told Tanner that she's not fragile so that he wouldn't keep hiding things from her. She further proved her strength when she used her incredible computer skills to help him out. Bree is so cute. She takes everything so seriously and researches it to the extreme. Even sex. This was an amazing mystery with so many twists in the story that I never knew what was going to happen next and certainly never guessed who the killer was. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. When I see 5-star reviews where the reader has received a free copy, I wonder whether it really is that good or if the reader just feels they should give it a high rating. But, I have to say, this book is definitely a 5-star read. Romantic suspense fans will love it.

I am at a complete loss for words. This story picks up where the previous book left off, and it was such a tangled, twisty little plot, that I was never able to get in front of it. I adored that this time we got a look at Tanner’s past and some of the enemies he’s made for being so good at his job. Needless to say, it’s a lot of enemies. And they all seem to be coming out of the woodwork to threaten the happiness he’s found with Bree at the same time. Fair warning: some of these are bright shiny red herrings that I took the bait for. I cherished my pet theories all the way up until the author showed me how very wrong I was. I enjoyed this book so much, I went back to the beginning and re-read it just to get a better handle on all the clues I missed and misinterpreted. I loved watching this pair fall deeper in love; seeing Tanner be open and vulnerable with Bree and witnessing her finding her own sense of power and self. I can’t wait to see what the author has in store for us next. I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book from the author.

Absolutely sensational !I volunteered to read and review an advanced readers copy of Security Risk . I love this story . Bree and Tanner are a fantastic team . I was intrigued and interested from the start , this story kept me flipping the pages . This is an off the charts suspense romance . Bree is a computer genius/ hacker and Tanner is a Deputy sheriff . They both have dark dangerous pasta . Unfortunately Tanner's past demons are coming after him . This is a sensational story , action packed , it's intense , suspenseful and romantic . Just fantastic . I highly recommend taking the time to read this story and enjoy .

I can't get enough of these two, Tanner and Bree as they once again find danger in their lives and now it’s all centered on Tanner and his past. The two are still together building their relationship, wanting to take it to the next level. But it’s derailed when Bree finds a dead body in her backyard and the man is tied to Tanner. When another body turns up, also tied to Tanner, he becomes a prime suspect and it will take both of them to find out who is setting him up. An amazing read with suspense, mystery, some nail biting scenes and sparks sparks sparks between these two. Even though there are no steamy scenes, their connection is not any less and the steam is still there between them. I LOVE LOVE LOVE these two and this second book was once again a page turner from beginning to end. I LOVED how they worked together and how Tanner opens up to Bree and the clincher, near the end when there is no mistake who he wants. The twists and turns kept coming and the mystery man was a real shocker...didn’t see that coming....CAN’T WAIT FOR THE NEXT ONE!!!! *I voluntarily read an advanced copy and expressed my honest opinion*

Another fast-paced, suspense driven read that will definitely keep you on your toes. Security Risk is book 2 in the Tanner and Bree thriller series, this time focusing more on Tanner and his background. Criminals that Tanner had put away in the past is now causing some serious issues, professionally and personally. To protect Bree, Tanner moves her into his ranch, which also gives them a chance to move their relationship further. Unfortunately, due to internal fears and lack of communication, progress on the emotional front is a bit slow, but they do eventually get there. There were so many twists and turns and nail biting scenes that kept me entertained until the very end. Bree and Tanner are a great team and watching them work together to exonerate Tanner was so awesome to see. All in all, another great read and I am looking forward to the next two books in this series.

This second book , though some might consider it a stand alone, it’s really more of a continuation of the first book in the series, Calculated Risk. In it we met the once child genius Bree who was running from The Organization , when she met deputy Tanner. This time , while the relationship continues to develop and more of Tanner’s PTSD and history is divulged, Tanner is the one in danger. He’s being linked to deaths occurring around the area. Bree is determined to help him, as they go into hiding. Will they be able to figure out who is setting Tanner up? Is it the man he put behind bars? Will they survive the danger? Will they finally have the happiness they deserve? The plot is engaging, filled with bad guys, and heart stopping moments. The characters are well developed. In this story there is no black and white but rather variations of gray. Another well written story by this talented author.

Fast paced and action packed! With the next story in the Bree and Tanner Thriller series, the story line picks up just a few weeks after Book One ended, and life has settled down a bit. At least they think it has until trouble comes knocking from Tanner's past this time! Lots of intrigue, excitement and surprises around every corner. Looking forward to the next two segments of their story! Tanner Dempsey thinks it's finally time for a breather and to settle in to paving his future with the new love of his life when the past comes back to haunt him. Still suffering from the remnants of an undercover op gone wrong three years ago, Tanner is stumped as to who would be trying to frame him now. Bree Daniels has never shied away from standing up for what she believed in, and right now that is Tanner. She won't sit by meekly and allow him to be railroaded just because someone decides they want to underhandedly have a beef with him. One way or another, she'll be standing by her man!

An exciting adventure from start to finish Bree, genius hacker turned waitress, and Tanner, the Captain of the county Sheriff’s department, have moved on from most of the aftermath dealing with the Organization left. As the story progresses secrets are being kept, circumstances get dicey, and reverting to the gray area of life may be the only way to get to the other side. Janie Crouch’s Security Risk made me dizzy with al the twisting and turning going on Don’t bother trying to figure out who is the enemy, you won’t get it right. An exciting adventure from start to finish that leaves me eagerly waiting for the next book in the series. I received a free copy of the book from the author. I had the opportunity to review or not.

Let me start out by saying that this STORY was wonderful! Now, even though I don’t ordinarily read continuation stories that concentrate on the same two main characters, this SERIES is wonderful! Deputy Tanner Dempsey has resolved some issues from his past, but others continue to haunt him. He was unable to save two of his best officers when they were captured by a syndicate. His life with Bree has evened out and he is looking forward to moving on in their relationship and Bree is happier than she has been in years. She is improving her social skills and working more with people and less with her computers. Once again, their lives are interrupted when criminals that Tanner had arrested in past years are being killed. He soon realizes that he is being set up to take the blame, but who could hate him that much and kill men just to get to him? Can Bree help him by using her hacker skills to find a connection between the victims? A full rush of emotion between the characters, the suspense and romance. I can’t get enough of Tanner and Bree! I received an advance review copy at no cost and without obligation from the author. (by paytonpuppy)

An intense thriller to catch the menacing killer, the mastermind behind the recent murders, the one who is going all out to frame Deputy Tanner Dempsey for the crimes and would gladly use Bree Daniels' life as collateral damage. As a reader who is not a fan of serial novels and who likes to each book in a series to have a new couple finding their HEA, I am in awe with this story and how brilliantly the author manages to make me forget that this is part two to a serial novel of Tanner and Bree's life. Humbled how well it can be done, how fresh she kept the story, and how easily anyone could pick this book up and not be disappointed, thinking they are missing something - while not being too repetitive to those who had the pleasure to read Calculated Risk first. To see Tanner and Bree's emotions and feels for each other grow slowly yet passionately and deeply, taking such root that has the potential forever after, was delightful and sweet. The desire is there yet the passion is mostly kept behind the closed doors. There are so much love and devotion between Tanner and Bree it is palpable, yet the depth of the feels managed to get me completely off guard when life got fragile, and I found myself in tears, hoping for redemption. The fierce, mortal, on the edge suspense that comes up close and personal for Tanner and Bree and puts their lives and future in danger, was potent, vigorous, and gripping. The tempo, tautness, and energy of the tale stay high, the beginning of the tale getting the heart rate up and the following events keeping it accelerated as the story unfolds. The sweet innocence of the romance mixed with brutal murders, lethal crimes that puts Tanner and Bree in dire straits. A thrilling and riveting continues to their story. ~ Five Spoons

July 16, 2019 Format: Mass Market Paperback Tanner and Bree are back in action in this second book in the series.It can be read as a stand alone but, I think it would be even better if you read the first book also.

Tanner and Bree are back and it wouldn't be Janie Crouch if we didn't get a healthy dose of suspense and danger with our romance. This couple has such great chemistry, and they just fit together - even when one of them is holding something back. As I've come to expect from this author, this is one of those stories that sucks you in and holds on tight. It's suspenseful enough that I blew right past that just one more chapter I kept promising myself - several times. There are a couple of likely suspects and just enough dangling carrots to keep me bouncing back and forth right up to the big reveal, which is definitely edge of your seat kind of stuff. On the relationship front, Bree and Tanner take another step forward as they get closer, and it's just enough to leave me wanting more of this wonderful couple. All in all, a great addition to a series that I can't get enough of.

4.5 stars Bree and Tanner are back again! Picking up about three months after the events in Calculated Risk, Tanner finds himself in the middle of a multiple murder investigation-and it’s not looking good since he’s considered the criminal. Again, Crouch has the RS aspect down pat in this fast-paced second entry to Bree and Tanner’s adventures! From friends and foes to a few surprises, I was definitely kept on my toes! The romance is once again, mostly closed doors. Along with a few steamy kisses, they do make progress on the emotional front. I am curious to see what happens next since this is to be a four book set when it’s all said and done. The books could potentially be read separately, but the nuances between Bree and Tanner make more sense when read in order. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. ~jewlsbookblog

Janie has done it again! This is the second book of her Bree and Tanner series. The first book was awesome, but this one is even better. This book you learn of things that happened in Tanner's past, which ends up putting both of them in danger. Tanner and Bree are quickly becoming two of my favorite H/H! Plenty of twists and Turns!
