Say No More by Karen Rose @karenrosebooks @berkleypub #bookreview #romanticsuspense

Susanne’s Review:

You Can Run, But You Most Certainly Can’t Hide! 

Mercy Callahan escaped a cult years ago. Unfortunately for her, the trauma remains. If only that was the worst of it. Now, Ephraim Burton, the leader of the cult is on the hunt, he wants Mercy back and he intends to get her by any means necessary.

Reunited with her brother Gideon and the Sokolov family who took Gideon in as their own, when he escaped the cult, Mercy finds something she didn’t expect an attraction to Rafe Sokolov, Gideon’s best friend and the man who saved her life a few months prior. Though Mercy wants nothing more than to take down Ephraim, she also wants more from life.  

“Say No More” is an extremely suspenseful storyline with a myriad of characters that centered around family. Truth be told, that’s what I enjoyed most about this book: Family. For me, the Sokolovs were the highlight – how they always took care of their own and everyone else, regardless of the danger involved.  

Say No More” by Karen Rose is the sequel to “Say You’re Sorry” involving Mercy and her brother Gideon (who was the main character in “Say You’re Sorry.”).  This novel is characterized as a romantic suspense, though thankfully this book was lighter on the romance than its predecessor, which is something I appreciated.  While I personally enjoyed “Say You’re Sorry” a tad more than the sequel, I enjoyed this and think fans of the series will too!

This was yet another buddy read with Kaceey!

Kaceey’s Review:

Devoted fans of romantic-suspense writer Karen Rose will love this latest addition to her series.

With the help of her mother, Mercy Callahan escaped a dangerous cult years ago. Now she returns to California to patch things up with her brother Gideon and his friend Rafe.

And just like clock-work, the past seems to be catching up with her. To be specific, her “betrothed” from the cult has no intention of just letting her walk away.

Full of action and of course romance, Karen Rose fills in all the necessary background you’ll need should you choose to jump into this series at this point.

Though it’s lengthy at well over 500 pages, no worries… the pace is fast and the pages fly by.

Already looking forward to reading more from this author!

A buddy read with Susanne!
