4 Stars

The only thing that Warren “War” Channing and his ex, Rose Shadow can agree on anymore is that they absolutely despise each other. Well… that and their attraction is still very much smoldering between them. But when Rose finds herself in a desperate situation, the only person who could possibly help her is also the man who she just can’t seem to get over…


No Escape From War was a sexy, suspense filled, second chance romance! Rose and War have a complicated history that resulted in heartbreak for the both of them, but when Rose needs help the most, her infuriating ex offers his unique expertise… whether she wants it, or not…

Rose is a dedicated reporter for a local news station, who takes her stories very seriously. So when she uncovers a serial killer in her city, Rose will stop at nothing to prevent another murder of an innocent woman… even if she has to do it by keeping the killers attention focused on her and her alone…

War is a former military man who doesn’t trust easily, and was completely devastated when his relationship with Rose imploded… even if he refuses to show that kind of emotion… ever. But when his ex lands herself in a whole heap of trouble, War can’t resist the pull that only Rose has ever made him feel… and he might just save her life in the process…

This was such a fantastic and engaging read! Rose and War’s past relationship was sexy and only surface deep, but when these ex-lovers face the danger of a serial killer, they will also confront the very issues that tore them apart once before. I absolutely loved the growth that Rose and War found in this book! Their chemistry was off the charts hot, but it was the depth of their feelings for each other that really shone through. 

The romance in this book was top-notch, but the plot also presented a great mystery of just who the killer is, and when will he strike next?! The story flowed around this main question, and second only to the sexiness that was War and Rose, the suspense of it all will keep you hooked until the very end…

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest and unbiased review.
