Zoe’s stalker has been murdered…

Dr. Zoe Hansen was forced to leave her beloved hospital job to escape a stalker. It worked—or so she thought. She’s terrified when he reappears in her life one night—and stunned when he turns up viciously murdered soon after. She’s arrested for the crime, but she quickly clears her name. Unfortunately, her problems are far from over. She’ll have to accept the protection of the one man she shouldn’t want.

…now she’s in more danger than ever before.

Former Navy SEAL Sawyer McCabe might not know the gorgeous Zoe as well as he wants to, but he knows all about trouble. So when she's threatened, he steps in to help her regardless of the consequences and gets her out of town. But it’s not enough to escape a determined killer. As the danger closes in they have to trust each other if they want to stay alive. And Sawyer’s determined to do whatever it takes to keep Zoe safe and in his arms. Because Zoe is worth risking everything for.

Linda's Thoughts:
Sure, he was insanely sexy, something she was finding impossible to ignore tonight. He had on dark slacks and a dark green sweater that made his piercing eyes pop even more against his tanned skin. The sweater sleeves were pushed up his forearms, showcasing muscles she wanted to trace with her fingers and lips. Looks aside, the man clearly had an honorable streak - and that was the sexiest thing of all.

DEADLY FALLOUT by Katie Reus is thrilling romantic suspense at its best! It's the tenth book in Katie's Red Stone Security series. Each installment features an alpha hero who will stop at nothing to protect and keep safe a damsel in distress. I'm still catching up with the series - but, each of the Red Stone Security books I've read, has been fantastic and fully enjoyable as a standalone even though there  are interconnected characters and a common theme . DEADLY FALLOUT tells the story of Zoe, Vincent's sister, and Sawyer McCabe, a Red Stone Security employee. We were treated to Vincent's story in PROTECTNG HIS WITNESS, the seventh book in this addictive series. 

I wanted to first spotlight Katie's DEADLY FALLOUT book dedication honoring both the success of this series and the support of her readers: "Ten books in and the Red Stone Security series is still going strong because of you, my wonderful readers. Thank you." I can attest that, even though this is the tenth book in the series, each story is fresh, unique and teeming with romantic suspense that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Zoe, our heroine, loved her job as an emergency room doctor until a married fellow doctor wouldn't accept her "no" for an answer and sexually attacks her. Her assailant had planned his attack well as he framed her so that it appeared that Zoe had been the one to come on to him. Left with no choice, she resigns and obtains a job in private practice - but the violence against her escalates after a brief respite. She smartly realizes that she is in over her head and reluctantly seeks Red Stone Security's assistance. I greatly admired how she maintained her poise and tenacity despite experiencing helplessness and terror as she was being pursued by not one, but two stalkers!

Sawyer, our hero, was thirty-seven-years-old and recently retired from the Navy Seals. I lapped up his nice guy persona, maturity, quiet confidence and how he set his sights on what he wanted and never wavered. He didn't fool around.

Together, their chemistry was passionate, steamy and hot. I liked that both characters acted like adults and weren't hesitant to respond to their hunger for each other.

Following please find a few of my favorite quotes from this read:

“Fuck,” he murmured, his gaze tracking over her exposed chest and torso. “I was going to say this is going too fast.”
“You sure about that?” she murmured. 
“I don’t want to take advantage,” he continued, his voice strained as he sat up, staring down at her as if he didn’t know where to start.
Reaching behind her back, she unsnapped her black bra and let it slide down her arms as she sat half up. “Then let me take advantage of you.”

The chemistry was almost too much. And at the same time, not enough. She simply couldn’t get enough of him, wondered if she ever would. 
When he pulled back and slid into her again, she moaned his name. “Sawyer.” 
Her clit was pulsing, begging to be touched again. Feeling bold, she reached between her legs and started stroking herself as he began thrusting. 
“Oh yeah, touch yourself, sweetheart. Come on my dick,” he rasped out, his voice a bare whisper…

Dark brown nipples and perfect, pert breasts just a little more than a handful. Her abdomen was flat and toned, as if she worked out or ran. "You are built for sin," he murmured, looking up at her as he spoke.

Katie's writing was fabulous, as it has been for every one of her books I've read. I have to say that DEADLY FALLOUT is my favorite of the series so far. LOL! Each time I read one of Katie's, I think they can't get any better... and then she goes and proves me wrong. Keep it up, Katie!

You will want to read this in one sitting. Once I started it, I couldn't put it down. I highly recommend DEADLY FALLOUT to anyone who enjoys sexy, fast paced, action-packed romantic suspense. If you enjoy romantic suspense, and you haven't checked out Katie's Red Stone Security books, you are missing out!
