    Originally posted at The Book Nympho I love it when the action in a suspense novel starts on the first page This book begins that way and never seems to let upuick summaryFBI Special Agent Mallory Rooney joined the bureau because she ultimately wanted to find out what happened to her twin sister who was abducted 18 years ago While tracking a serial killer she stumbles upon information suggesting that a vigilante is operating outside of law enforcement Former CIA operative Alex Parker is now working for a covert organization whose mission is to take down the most vile criminals before they enter the justice system As Mallory starts to get closer to discovery Alex is assigned to watch her and ends up getting closer than he'd planned The suspenseWomen are being abducted and their bodies later discovered often with significant time spans between the time they went missing and when they were murdered What makes this even spine tingling is sometimes we get the points of view from the victims and the killer Anderson doesn't give you a clue as to who's going to make it which keeps the tension level awfully high When the killer begins focusing on Mallory things get even dicey The romanceAlex and Mallory have great chemistry but always in the background is his duplicity She doesn't know about his history and he has so many secrets it takes most of the book to uncover them Alex's blurred lines makes him interesting and even he gets conflicted as his relationship with Mallory deepens It's a tricky romance that keeps you wondering how all of this will or can be resolved The bottom lineThe balance is tipped towards suspense in this story but believe me the romance doesn't suffer and isn't forsaken Alex is a compelling gray hero straddling those ethical lines I couldn't find a good stopping point so I gave up trying to sleep and got up in the middle of the night and finished the book I also couldn't definitively nail down the identity of the killer until close to the book reveal That doesn't happen to me very often and the clues were there Loved this book and I've already bought the next book

    A freebie Got it almost 3 years ago Not bad not bad at all Liked both characters although the heroine did have a stupid moment towards the end “Part of her wanted to hang on tight and see where it led The other part wanted time and space to try and figure out exactly what was happening But if she’d learned anything over the years it was time and space didn’t always provide answers” “Tell me you aren’t as perfect as you seem Alex” “Not even close to perfect” His blue gray eyes darkened “Not a complete asshole either”

    A Cold Dark Place by Toni Anderson is the first in the Cold Justice seriesit's the first I've read from this author but I'm definitely looking forward to reading the next in this seriesIt's fast thrilling and funit's also a typical romantic suspense thriller with the FBI an Assassin a cat and mouse chase with a murderer oh and a steamy love affair with the assassin and the FBI agent did I mention a HEA too 😉But also the story line is very pacy and keeps you flipping pages it's a uick read because you need to know and can't put it downIt's definitely worth reading 📖

    Currently free on Dec 1 2o15 Read on March 7 2015The heroine Mallory is a rookie cop who joined the FBI to search for the person responsible for abducting her twin sister when they were eight years old The hero Alex Parker is an ex soldier recruited by a shadowy government organization to act as a vigilante to remove serial killers and pedophiles Mallory and Alex's part crossed when she look into the possibility of vigilante activities that caused the death of a serial killer Alex decided to keep tab on Mallory himself to avoid his upper management to 'dispose' her Mallory had been spending all her life searching for closure that she never stop to enjoy her life Alex is the first man that distract her focus and make her want to be free of her own demon for once Alex is one of those soldier that had been screwed over by the government one too many times His past with the army is not something nice to be reminiscence Now his service as a vigilante assassin is his only way to achieve the freedom he crave He had been counting down the days till he is no longer under the government clutch Mallory might just happened to be the reason that will change his end game A serial killer that might have a link to Mallory's twin sister is at large and for once she is finally getting some head way into solving this cold case But I actually find myself intrigue with the ongoing secrecy between Alex and Mallory How will she react when she found out Alex's true identity and how can he dig himself out of the imminent downfall? Although the suspense with the serial killer is not really that nail biting this is still a page turner I think Alex make the story for me I sympathize with his character and his tortured soul His dedication in helping Mallory behind the scene without expecting a HEA with her is so selfless and is what make him such a great man An epilogue towards the end will be highly appreciate though

    A Cold Dark Place by Toni AndersonGenres Adult Crime Romance Suspense45 StarsGot my attention and held it throughout the book Well written The characters are well developed and interesting More of a crime suspense novel than a romance A lot of action and keeps you guessing to the end who the serial killer is but gives you clues as the story unfolds A satisfying and all around good read The suspense was spot on The romance was well done but the actual sex scenes seemed just a bit rushed to me You are never sure how Mallory is going to react to the truth of who Alex is till the end I will be adding book #2 Cold Pursuit to my TBR pile

    She was a federal agent who lived to uphold the law He was a killer who’d die to keep her safe Could be read as standalone This book is everything that suspense romance should be; great flow of the writing perfectly paired main couple who are so unperfect which makes them so much real gripping plot which just at the moments you think you figure it out surprises you with an unexpected twistIf you love political drama and criminal mystery with steamy parts left in it this is a book for youAs this is a hunt for a serial killer it is sufficient to say there are many triggers so if you have some of these issues stay away view spoilerrape kidnapping abuseptsd hide spoiler
