Book Review: 'Explosive Combination' by KaLyn Cooper

Certain books stay with the reader far after the last page. This is one of those books.
I’m glad I picked up this book. I wasn’t sure if I’d like it at first. Romantic suspense isn’t my favorite genre, but I thought, why not? I’m glad I did. I was in for a thrill ride.
Ms Cooper writes with a fluidity that kept me in my seat. I felt like I was there in the thick of things with Rafe and Harper. I was engaged the whole time and didn’t want this book to end.
Speaking of Rafe and Harper, these are two complicated characters. Harper doesn’t believe a man can stick around in a relationship. Most women, me included, can identify with her struggle to trust. She’s also in love with the high of action–she wants to be in the thick of things. That was great. I love strong female characters.
Rafe is another complication, but he’s oh-so-handsome. I’d get complicated with him. He’s torn. Harper reminds him of someone from his past, but if he gets involved with her, will he be able to keep the two separate? He’s got one heck of a conundrum. I liked how he had to work through his feelings. I loved how he and Harper worked together. The sparks are definitely evident.
If you want a book chock full of twists, turns, and white hot realism, then this might be the book for you. Worth the read.
