TENDER BETRAYAL (Romantic Suspense Mystery), The TENDER Series ~ Book 3, H.Y. Hanna
Genre: Mystery and Thrillers, Romance
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
I loved the first two books in this series, and at the end of the last one we found Leah discovering something in her dad’s letters that really could put a wedge between her and Torn – well, that’s what she fears anyway and that’s why she tries to find out more before she tells him about it.
I love Leah and Toran, its a fabulous romance between two people who’ve been kept apart and have now reconnected. Its still early days for them and they’re feeling their way cautiously. They don’t yet know enough to be sure how the other would react, so I can see in a way why Leah wanted to wait, she’s fearful it will prove too much for Toran. Secrets come out though – always just when you don’t need them to and Toran is horrified, more from the fact she kept this from him knowing how much he was searching for the truth than from the actual facts. Its a really sad time, where Leah fears they’re lost and Toran wants a few days apart. She carries on searching for info, thinks maybe she can make it up to him that way, and anyway she’s so distraught at being apart she has to do something. It brings her into real danger though – possibly risking her life, and from a very unexpected source.
I loved this book. as with the earlier ones it has a great feeling of being in Singapore, and there’s a real local flavour comes out in the writing, as if its a place the author knows well. The suspense too is perfect for me. I used to read thrillers a lot but now enjoy a lighter type, where I can follow the story easily, and just sit back and enjoy the ride instead of wondering all the while – who, what, where , when why? Its like old films v new ones. I can enjoy old ones, but so many new ones jump from place to place, person to person and I’ve only just got to grips with one part and we’re off onto something else – I’m just lost in the story and not in a good way Winking smile Toran – he’s just great and so in love with Leah but I can see why he was so upset, that would be most people’s reaction. He could have copied IMO if she’d told him, it was the keeping it from him that’s so devastating. Leah is lovely, so in love, so desperate not to rock things and that’s why she makes a wrong move – she doesn’t want to shatter the tentative start of their beautiful romance. When the dasnger hits it feels so real, and I was carried along with the characters.
Stars: Five, a really fun suspense and romance

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
