break the phone What is it that you know What scares you Monica on the phone with the killerHOLY SHIT Deadly Fear was a wild, creep ride I was in the mood for a good romantic suspense and did I ever get that with this book Cynthia Eden brought her A game I was hooked from page one and I was on the edge of my seat the whole time Action packed, sexy, exciting, and at times dark this book was everything I love in romantic suspense reads I really enjoyed myself and couldn t put this book down until I finshed it Who needs to eat or sleep not this bitch The problem I tend to find with a lot of the romantic suspense I read are they are either too light on the romance side, to the point of having no romance at all or they are weak on the plot but there is tons of sex That or they are really predictable and I can see everything coming a mile away Not with this one It was the perfect balance of action and sexy time The plot was strong and I had no clue who the killer was til a few minutes before the main couple did You got scared, he charged, the words he d wanted to throw at her for too long firing out I got too close, didn t I And you had to fucking run Luke The past is over, Dante They d been over this before, when he d made the mistake of tracking her down Serious mistake We re professionals, we can Pretend we never had sex Pretend we didn t nearly tear each other apart because we were so fucking hungry those nights Monica and LukeLuke was so damn sexy and all alpha He just oozed sexy appeal He was strong, smart, protective, and caring Everything you would want in an FBI agent He had the hero thing down pat Having watched his mom be beat to death by her lover he was always trying to save and protect women I love how he was with Monica He wanted her and he let her know but he didn t beg after her A man s got to have pride after all He yanked on his jeans and rose Because he was watching her what else was new he caught the swift glance she tossed him and he saw the way her gaze dropped to his chest Luke couldn t help it He had to flex, just a little A man had his pride LukeMonica was a totally intriguing character She was kidnapped by a serial killer as a teen She was his only surviving victim But she didn t come out of that ordeal untouched Because she has seen evil up close and been touched by it, she is able to get into a killers mind making her one of the best serial killer profilers in the FBI Monica was brave, smart, and totally kicked ass She had major walls up because of what she lived through, but it was understandable Monica was all about control She didn t want to feel helpless or like a victim I loved that Monica was a fighter Get dressed, Monica said, then she rubbed the back of her hand over her mouth Luke stiffened No, she didn t just The case the deputy has something we need to see She swung away from him Luke grabbed her arm and swung her right back around to face him What are you He kissed her Hard Fast When his head lifted, he glared at her Don t wipe me away again, baby Monica and Luke Don t make me need youMonicaMonica and Luke together OMG they were so hot The sexual tension in this book was strong I felt like Monica and Luke had explosive chemistry The sexy time in this book was raw, hurgry and so yummy Luke and Monica both liked it fast, hard, down and dirty But it wasn t all just sex I felt their love too Their relationship had a great build to it The plot of this book was amazing I loved how it kept me guessing til the end Cynthia Eden didn t go light on the bad guy The killer was evil and creepy She didn t shy away from the dark side of murder either Being inside the killer s mind and watching him kill or in Sam and Luke cases torture was spine chilling to read Sam, Kenton, and Hyde were all interesting and likable secondary characters Especially Sam I want her to get her HEA after all she lived through I loved how Sam fought even thought she was scared when she was kidnapped and tortured She was brave and tried to fight I am so glad I bought this series and I can t wait to read the next one You re it for me, Monica I ve known it from the first time I kissed you Luke 5 stars Romantic

is Cynthia Eden As brilliantly written, crafted, and executed and creeptasticly chilling as a Karen Rose novel with some similarities to Kylie Brant s Mindhunters series and Leslie Parrish s Black CATs series, but with much better developed romance and verrry steamy love scenes, Deadly Fear had everything I love in a romantic suspense thriller and kept me completely riveted from beginning to end.Special Agent Luke Dante is the newest member of the FBI s elite Serial Services Division, a unique, specialized task force dedicated to apprehending all types of serials rapists, killers, kidnappers For his first assignment, Luke s given a case of a possible serial killer in small town Jasper, Mississippi and paired with the SSD s lead profiler, Special Agent Monica Davenport Monica is Luke s former partner from his FBI training days at Quantico and also happens to be his ex lover, the woman who got away whom he s never been able to forget Luke and Monica made the perfect professional team, with her profiling the killers by getting inside their warped minds and him understanding the victims, but their sexual relationship came to an abrupt end when Monica feared Luke was getting too close to discovering her secrets and ran.Now, working together to bring down a sadistic serial killer who makes his victims suffer their darkest fears, while fighting a mutual attraction that s as explosive and dangerous as ever, their partnership is put to the ultimate test When the killer s game turns personal and he snares Monica in his twisted web, threatening to unearth the past, will Luke be able to break through her walls and defenses to save them both before it s too late I seriously can t say enough about how much I loved this phenomenal read Monica and Luke are intriguing, remarkable, and strong yet vulnerable characters, and I loved their deep emotional connection, magnetic chemistry, electric sexual tension, and searing passion Don t feel bad Monica, I wouldn t have been able to resist Luke Dante for a single minute, either I love Karen Rose for chilling suspense, but I ve always been slightly disappointed by the level of romance in her books Eden s Deadly Fear is one of the best romantic suspense thrillers that I ve read with an intricately, intelligently constructed plot and eerie, gripping suspense combined perfectly with a strong, emotional romantic element and scorching hot love scenes So if you re a fan of dark romantic suspense, Karen Rose, Leslie Parrish, Kylie Brant, Shannon K Butcher s Love You to Death and like romance that s on the steamy side, don t miss this amazing read I d say Cynthia Eden s venture from paranormal romance into the romantic suspense genre is a definite, winning success Now I can t wait for the next books in her addictive Deadly series, Deadly Heat in Feb 2011 and Deadly Lies in Mar 2011, to come out Big 5 stars Really quite good I know a lot of reviewers compare this to a Karen Rose book, and I can definitely see the similarities This was an expertly plotted thriller about a female FBI profiler s race to stop a serial killer, and it drove me crazy trying to figure out who the serial killer could be I bounced back and forth between a few suspects, but discounted the obvious choice because I thought the author kind of made it a little too plain who she wanted you to think it would be But when the kil Really quite good I know a lot of reviewers compare this to a Karen Rose book, and I can definitely see the similarities This was an expertly plotted thriller about a female FBI profiler s race to stop a serial killer, and it drove me crazy trying to figure out who the serial killer could be I bounced back and forth between a few suspects, but discounted the obvious choice because I thought the author kind of made it a little too plain who she wanted you to think it would be But when the killer s identity was finally revealed and the reasons for why he was the killer, it was a nice surprise and certainly made sense.Now why not a 5 star read Well, I couldn t help comparing in to a Karen Rose book who I consider the undisputed queen of the diabolical, psycho crazy character , and I thought this serial killer who tortured his victims with their greatest fears came up a little short Not to say that what he did wasn t sickening, scary, and demented, but I didn t feel as scared and horrified as I expected Maybe it s because the author didn t get into the minds of the victims as much as KR does we were largely told what happened to them, we didn t see it happen except for one case and get into the minds of the victims when it did We didn t get to experience their horror and fear The one time that we did, I thought yes, this is how it should be written and I could feel this character s fear So I think this story fell just a wee bit short for me in the fear factor.If it fell short in the fear factor, it certainly made up for it in the romance department I loved the relationship between the uber smart, beautiful FBI profiler Monica Davenport who had her own secrets and fears and her love interest, FBI agent Lucas Dante I loved how the protective Lucas was able to get past the icy walls that the alpha Monica had surrounding her heart, her feelings, and her whole life Their sex scenes were scrumptious Lucas was to die for My only complaint or should I say wish was that I would ve liked to have seen some scenes maybe some flashbacks about when they met at the Academy at Quantico We were told a bit about their past, but I would ve preferred some actual scenes complete with dialogue, just so I could get a better feel for their realtionship I think it would ve helped me to better connect with the characters As it was written, I really didn t emotionally connect with them until I was over halfway through the book, when the author started to revealbits and pieces about the characters backgrounds.This was an excellent start to a new series, with a real nail biter ending, and the last 100 pages were un put downable I enjoyed meeting all the supporting characters, and look forward to fellow agent Kenton Lake s story Deadly Heat , and especially agent Samantha s story Deadly Lies If you like a romantic suspense in the style of Karen Rose, but withromance, give this series a shot 4 stars Check out for a look at some extra features about this series, including a prequel to Deadly Fear , a deleted scene, agent profiles, case files, and a Q A with the suthor.

hari, Dante was a southern boy with charm and a dimple in his chin But if one thing had been drilled into him in those profile classes at the Academy, it was that even dead victims could talk You just had to know how to hear them Sex with her hadn t been as good as before.It had been better They d barely touched and he d been about to explode in his jeans Louisiana.Home was where death waited I won t say too much about the book but it had the perfect blend of romance and suspense for me Yes, they had a history Yes, she did not want to pursue a relationship but the attraction was too strong and soon the ice began to thaw Fantastic romantic suspense The perfect blend of evil mystery villain, intense FBI action, and hot, Hot, HOT sexual tension MY SYNOPSIS Monica Davenport has a past that is finally catching up with her inways than one No stranger to serial killers, she joined the FBI s special group of hunters after her own run in with a sadistic killer while in her teens She spent some time with the sicko, and now has an inside track into what drives someone like that She s become an integral part of Fantastic romantic suspense The perfect blend of evil mystery villain, intense FBI action, and hot, Hot, HOT sexual tension MY SYNOPSIS Monica Davenport has a past that is finally catching up with her inways than one No stranger to serial killers, she joined the FBI s special group of hunters after her own run in with a sadistic killer while in her teens She spent some time with the sicko, and now has an inside track into what drives someone like that She s become an integral part of the elite SSD When another man from her past joins the same team, Monica is in danger of losing herself to the one man who ever got under her skin and found the real Monica Luke Davenport never forgot the beautiful but secretive woman that he had a brief affair with years before So when he sees her on the other side of the table at his introductory meeting to the SSD, he makes a decision that he won t let her walk away with no explanation again When the two are sent to a remote southern town to hunt down a suspected serial killer together, the sexual tension is off the charts, but they don t have a lot of time to spend on each other Because now the killer is hunting FBI agents MY THOUGHTS This is my first Cynthia Eden book, and what a surprise it was The woman is a natural, and this book in a word INTENSE The killer is truly evilthis guy likes to see the fear in the eyes of his preyhe feeds off terror He digs into his victim s past and figures out what they fear most in the worldthen he uses that information to kill them in a way that is literally out of their very own nightmares That s true evil thereno rhyme or reason to why he does it in this manner And that s scary, because many serials don t really see their victims as people But this guys HAS tohe kills them in very personal manners, and he has to understand them as well.The romance between Luke and Monica sizzles I m a sucker for unrequited love stories, but there tends to be few books that have a valid reason for a breakup More often than not, I roll my eyes at the contrived manner in which an author goes about separating two people who are obviously meant to be together Not so in this case Cynthia Eden tells a believable story, dredging up the past in such a way that makes the reader empathize with Monica s lonely life Luke is her perfect counterpart, neither too alpha to set aside the natural tendency of men in his position to take over in the place of a female, nor too beta that he lets her strong personality overshadow his masculinity They have a great push and pull with each other, and their romance was believable and totally sexy.And then she instills an incredible sense of urgency in the reader I swear, I was bouncing up and down in my seat, leaning forward and trying to hurry he agents along HURRY, HURRY She s gonna DIIIIEEEE But let me tell you, Eden isn t loyal to her secondary characters This isn t a save everyone type novel At one point, I had my hand over my mouth in shock, and I kept thinking that something would change what I knew was getting ready to happen 3.75 StarsOverall Opinion This was pretty good I am not a huge fan of suspenseful romance books because I usually struggle with the balance between the suspense and the romance, but I was in the mood for one I think Cynthia Eden does a good job at that balance She keeps me engaged with the suspense and also provides me enough steam and romance to keep me engaged in their relationship as well BUT I would have liked someabout how they were before We get implications and mentions of 3.75 StarsOverall Opinion This was pretty good I am not a huge fan of suspenseful romance books because I usually struggle with the balance between the suspense and the romance, but I was in the mood for one I think Cynthia Eden does a good job at that balance She keeps me engaged with the suspense and also provides me enough steam and romance to keep me engaged in their relationship as well BUT I would have liked someabout how they were before We get implications and mentions of their past, but I wanted to understand itI really like the build up part in a relationship, and because they already had done that when the story started it seemed like something was missing I get it we didn t really have time to dwell on that, but it just kind of bothered me Another thing is the lack of a HEA I know this is the beginning of a series, so maybe we ll getabout them later but why not a glimpse into their future I know these two beefs I have come from the romance reader in me, and this is a suspense book as wellso maybe I just need to let them go Brief Summary of the Storyline This is Monica and Luke s story They met and had a hot fling at FBI training, so when they are reunited to be on a serial killer profiling team they are both unprepared for the feelings they still have for one another There is a serial killer in a small town, and Luke s is the new guy in the team that is assigned to accompany Monica to try to catch him Old feelings return, some sexy times happen, big secrets are revealed, and all the while there is a serial killer on the looseand they get a HFN ending.POV This alternated between focusing mainly on Monica and Luke in 3rd person narrative, but it did focus on some side characters and the killer as well.Overall Pace of Story Good I never skimmed, and I thought it flowed well.Instalove No, but feelings were already present when the story begins.H rating 4

relationship hide spoiler Heat level Good They have some good tension, chemistry, and scenes but not so much it takes away from the story.Descriptive sex YesOW OM drama NoSex scene with OW or OM NoCheating NoSeparation Not during the book view spoiler They are separated for a time after they first hook up 6 months, a couple years I m not sure how long , but when they were together was casual
