Diane's Review ~ Relentless by Elizabeth Dyer

Relentless (Somerton Security #2)Relentless by Elizabeth Dyer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Stomach-churning tension. From the very beginning of Ethan and Natalia’s story I knew this was going to be very different from Georgia and Parker’s. Very different. The Vega cartel had taken something precious from both Ethan and Natalia but the whys and wherefores mattered a lot when one was fighting from the outside and the other, very much, from within. If the humour was definitely missing, other than Parker (of course) popping in for some much needed lightheartedness, there was nothing lacking in the intensity and sheer emotion running through this read. Every moment could bring about a life-ending situation and it did as their quest for justice, for freedom, was waged.

“My uncle won’t kill me, Ethan. That’s not a punishment—it’s just an end we’ve both expected for a long time.”

Ethan couldn’t fail and Natalia couldn’t either. Working against, and with, each other meant an uneasy alliance where promises were made that neither was sure they could keep. Finding love surrounded by such violence seemed impossible yet it fit, somehow, in the storyline without being out of place. Love, after all, is what brought them to their current circumstances and is what they fought tooth and nail for.

There are nail-biting moments, and others where I had to skim a few sentences (not for the faint-hearted!) but I was glued to the pages, wondering, hoping, wishing, as it all played out. There were surprises and a (mostly) satisfying ending even though things were not all resolved. I wonder and worry but most of all, can’t wait for what happens next!
