    So, if you didn t know before, you do now I m a Sandra Brown fangirl Funnily enough, that lands me in somewhat of a predicament What can I say about her work that I haven t already Perfect mix of suspense and romance Nope Said it. Mean Streak Spot on with the dialogue Mentioned that one, too. Lethal Her writing gets me every time Sure does. Friction Queen of epic plot twists Yup Oh how I love getting duped. Sting Tension and an underlying sexiness Don t I know it.

Sting Tension and an underlying sexiness Don t I know it. Seeing RedI ve got it, I ve got it something I haven t said in quite so many words her men are utter perfection Not in an obvious cardboard cutout kind of way, butof a brooding bad boy with a jaded outlook on life that just so happens to have a loyal heart under all that cockiness Swoon There s no denying, Dent the guy at the center of Low Pressure is a little rough around the edges All it takes is the right woman armed with a belt sander to smooth those out though, right Cue Ms Bellamy It s the media attention surrounding Bellamy s debut fiction release a book inspired by the true account of her older sister Susan s murder that brings her and Dent face to face Eighteen years after that fateful Memorial day picnic, absent her teenage crush and with a stalker in tow, Bellamy tracks Dent down to get his take on her version of events What she finds is a man who s pissed off about the book and still harboring a serious grudge against her family I guess being named as a prime suspect in your girlfriend s murder investigation would do that though The ending of Bellamy s book culminates in a way that leaves the entire investigation open to interpretation, thrusting all of the key players back into the spotlight Did the investigators get it right was the killer sent to prison or is he out there somewhere With his moral compass and urge to be a fierce protector, Dent won my heart pretty early on I m telling you, I think it would be pretty impossible not to fall for this guy The sarcastic banter between him and Bellamy and who am I kidding, the innuendoes made the story for me Undeniable chemistry is everything in my book and these two had it in spadesWe rub each other the wrong way We could rub each other till we get it rightAside from the sexual tension running rampant throughout her storylines, I appreciate Sandra Brown s penchant for obscuring the truth While I may have had a tiny niggling in the back of my mind this time around that a certain someone might be involved what can I say, I m a skeptic my theories never evolved to the point that I pieced together the ending So kudos to Ms Brown for not only duping me again, but for making me fall for another cast of characters

    I honestly didn t expect to like this one as much as I did It started off slow but around the 30% mark, in true SB form she throws in a twist in and I was hooked.I really enjoyed the two main characters, Denton Carter and Bellamy Lyston Price But in the best of SB books she always surrounds them with a cast of secondary characters that are fantastic and in this one I think they are what kept me so engaged There is Gall Hathaway which is the only one that Denton considered family He provided I honestly didn t expect to like this one as much as I did It started off slow but around the 30% mark, in true SB form she throws in a twist in and I was hooked.I really enjoyed the two main characters, Denton Carter and Bellamy Lyston Price But in the best of SB books she always surrounds them with a cast of secondary characters that are fantastic and in this one I think they are what kept me so engaged There is Gall Hathaway which is the only one that Denton considered family He provided for some humor and was my favorite Then you have a tabloid writer Rocky Van Durbin who just annoyed me and a crazy ass guy named Ray Strickland Dale Moody was a homicide detective and Rupe Collier was the ADA Rupe was such prick, did not like him at all but Dale wasn t a bad guy and he grew on me Then you have Bellamy s family Olivia her stepmom, Howard her dad and Steven her stepbrother And at the center of the story is Susan, her dead sister I thought it was worth mentioning all of them because the way the story unfolds, each of them have their own voice within chapters and having a little cheat sheet might be helpful Bellamy Price was a girl that was beautiful on the outside but concealed her sadness and pain on the inside Denton Carter He was broody, sexy and a bit cocky Loved that he was a pilot, that just added to his sexiness Low Pressure is the title of a book that Bellamy has written It was never her intention to cause any additional pain to those who have been affected, but it was her way of trying to let go of the demons that remained with her.On Memorial Day, eighteen years ago not only did a tornado destroy a family picnic, it also marked the death of her sister Susan Bellamy was only 12 when it happened but her need to remember and her need to know what really happened drives her to the publish this book which instantly throws her back to that very day The few things that Dent loved in his life were his red Corvette, his plane and Gall When the publicity of Low Pressure draws attention to him and the things he loves, once again he finds himself answering the same questions that were asked of him 18 years ago Being a suspect in Susan s murder was the catalyst in his life causing him to crash and burn But Dent decides to use this as a chance to finally get some answer and to clear his name.Dent wasn t the only one frustrated with this book For some, having what happened 18 years ago resurface, meant only trouble For others it meant remembering a painful time And for one in particular it meant vengeance The suspense in this one was constant which kept me questioning everyone You know me, I thought I had it figured out but in the end I was wrong I was close though The romance was one of a very very slow simmer There was a little bit here and there but it wasn t until after the 80% mark that Bellamy and Dent get down to business Though I enjoyed them, they were not my favorite couple In the end I was happy with where they landed This one was good, not Envy great but it was good If you are a Sandra Brown fan it certainly is worth the read

    I started this book twice and gave up I even posted gifs stating that I was bored So I put it aside The I saw this review Sharon s wonderful reviewI thought to myself, Mmmm, now Sharon and myself like a lot of the same books We LOVE most of the SB books we have read, so what was I missing here Decided to give it another shot I mean, a bad SB book for me is a GOOD book I started again from the beginning cos, as you know, at my age, the memory isn t the greatest I swear I thought I w I started this book twice and gave up I even posted gifs stating that I was bored So I put it aside The I saw this review Sharon s wonderful reviewI thought to myself, Mmmm, now Sharon and myself like a lot of the same books We LOVE most of the SB books we have read, so what was I missing here Decided to give it another shot I mean, a bad SB book for me is a GOOD book I started again from the beginning cos, as you know, at my age, the memory isn t the greatest I swear I thought I was reading a completely different book I was hooked from the beginning.Dent is your typical taciturn SB hero, gruff, living alone, existing Loved him I have a healthy respect for gravity The ground is always there, trying to pull you down It s the most important thing to keep in mind Bellamy has written a novel It is supposed to be fiction but it is based on events that happened 18 years ago that had a devastating effect on her family She has brought the story to the notice of the public and somebody is not happy But when a sleazy reporter for a tabloid newspaper discovers that the book is based on a real crime, Bellamy s identity and dark family secrets are exposed Suddenly, she finds herself embroiled in a personal conflict and at the mercy of her sister s killer, who for almost two decades has gotten away with murderand will stop at nothing to keep it that way As with a SB book we had a list of characters that we could be suspicious of I did have it figured out before I finished the book That did not deter me from enjoying the end of the book The silence in the cabin was so prolonged and absolute that Dent imagined he could hear the dust motes spinning in the stifling air I cared I cared like hell Sex scenes I think there was one big one and it was HOT It is the build up, it is the anticipation Love the way Ms Brown writes these

    Bellamy Price has written a best selling novel under an assumed name The novel, is a fictionalised account of her family s tragic true story Eighteen years ago her sixteen year old sister was murdered, strangled to death at a Memorial Day barbecue hosted by her wealthy parents A tornado ripped through the celebrations soon after, scattering any evidence to the four winds When her real name is exposed and the truth behind the fiction revealed, Bellamy starts receiving threats The novel for B Bellamy Price has written a best selling novel under an assumed name The novel, is a fictionalised account of her family s tragic true story Eighteen years ago her sixteen year old sister was murdered, strangled to death at a Memorial Day barbecue hosted by her wealthy parents A tornado ripped through the celebrations soon after, scattering any evidence to the four winds When her real name is exposed and the truth behind the fiction revealed, Bellamy starts receiving threats The novel for Bellamy is partly cathartic, hoping to resolve issues related to her sister s murder Butthan that, she s hoping the writing of the book will trigger some of her memories about the events of that day, lost for eighteen years.Sandra Brown is one of my favourite authors of romantic suspense and has been for many years Her stories, and particularly her characterisations and dialogue are outstanding Her heroes for me are some of the very best in romantic fiction Nobody does these tough, down on his luck, sexy as all get out, smart mouthed heroes as well as Sandra Brown Denton Carter, a pilot, was the boyfriend of Bellamy s sister at the time of her death Though cleared of any role in her murder, he has since remained estranged from Bellamy s family Now circumstances have brought Dent and Bellamy together Ms Brown introduces a host of possible murderers, a sleazy ex prosecutor, a thuggish ex cop, the unstable brother of the convicted murderer, a stalkerish fan, even Bellamy s stepbrother Or was the right man caught and convicted afterall The plot is tight, the pacing is fast Sandra Brown has written a taut, convincing suspense Her characterisations are as usual, top notch The dialogue smart, snappy, often humorous The plot is believable The romance grows naturally out of Dent and Bellamy s time together This is another winner for Sandra Brown Low Pressure is a first class romantic suspense and the reason Ms Brown is on the best seller lists A recommended read.Steam 2.5 ARC courtesy of Grand Central Publishing via NetGalley

    It s been awhile since I struggled to finish a book as much as this one After reading the sensational book Lethal, I had high hopes and expectations for this one Unfortunately, this one fell way short.The chemistry that was so scorching and believable in Lethal was missing in this book I love romantic suspense novels, and I would concede that it is difficult to find a book that can balance both the romance and the suspense plots equally Low Pressure tells the story of a woman who is trying t It s been awhile since I struggled to finish a book as much as this one After reading the sensational book Lethal, I had high hopes and expectations for this one Unfortunately, this one fell way short.The chemistry that was so scorching and believable in Lethal was missing in this book I love romantic suspense novels, and I would concede that it is difficult to find a book that can balance both the romance and the suspense plots equally Low Pressure tells the story of a woman who is trying to deal with the murder of her sister She has repressed memories from the night her sister was killed and has written a fictional book that rehashes the night of the tornado that changed so many lives forever There was a trial, and a man was convicted of the murder, but Bellamy fears that an innocent man was framed for the murder Add in a host of secondary characters the convicted man s brother who is bent on revenge, a guilt ridden prosecutor in the case, Bellamy s sisters former boyfriend, his father figure, and a terminally ill father, and you have a fairly intricate plot to dissect.Unfortunately, I was never invested in any of the characters enough to care Dent s character was never particularly attractive to me and Bellamy got on my nerves almost immediately The suspense plot was fairly easy to see and I was able to guess what was going on before it was revealed This was a miss for me, but Lethal was a complete hit I guess there are different strokes for different folks, and this one was not for me.A big thanks to Grand Central Publishing for providing me with an ARC for review

    Audio of book with Stephen Lang once again His rendition of the heroine was a little bland and flat, but the heroine was bland and flat so perhaps that was his direction Another well done job on narration.The narration and some of the plot surrounding the evil doer of a decades crime eventually being exposed amongst some contrived shenanigans that makes this doable 3 star suspense with 2 star characters None very likable.

    Maybe it wasn t the right time for me to read this book, because I didn t enjoy it I wonder if my rating is valid as I only read the first 200 pages Nevertheless what I read was boring, predictable and unoriginal Mostly I didn t enjoy the characters, especially the lead female, a self righteous, colorless, rich girl that didn t think about the consequences of her actions writing a book about her family secrets without giving the heads up to all involved I so didn t like Bellamy from the Maybe it wasn t the right time for me to read this book, because I didn t enjoy it I wonder if my rating is valid as I only read the first 200 pages Nevertheless what I read was boring, predictable and unoriginal Mostly I didn t enjoy the characters, especially the lead female, a self righteous, colorless, rich girl that didn t think about the consequences of her actions writing a book about her family secrets without giving the heads up to all involved I so didn t like Bellamy from the get go and I knew that she and the pilot, Dent, were going to be lovers all so tediously predictable.To deliver successful and enjoyable read, I think it s so important for the author to grasp the reader from the start, with either an original plot, authentic characters, or well written dialogues None of that was present in the first 200 pages, and I gave up because I knew I was wasting my time if I continued, just to be totally honest

    I am a fan of Sandra Brown and have read most of her releases throughout the years I find that most of her books can be classified as easy reading in that they do not require a great deal of emotional investment and you can generally get through them in one day Low Pressure is no exception.I, personally, prefer books that involve me a bitI like to have to work at guessing who the killer is and, hopefully, the why as well I like to identify with the heroine and I like to find the I am a fan of Sandra Brown and have read most of her releases throughout the years I find that most of her books can be classified as easy reading in that they do not require a great deal of emotional investment and you can generally get through them in one day Low Pressure is no exception.I, personally, prefer books that involve me a bitI like to have to work at guessing who the killer is and, hopefully, the why as well I like to identify with the heroine and I like to find the hero at least attractive, if not admirable I didn t find that connection present in Low Pressure.I never had a good picture of Dent Carter the hero other than he was the pre requisite neglected child bad boy type considered not suitable to date the society girl from the right side of the tracks and that he was redeemed by his love of flying Bellamy, the heroine, you have even less of a feel for She was the younger sister with a crush on her older sister s boyfriend She seems to me to be a little too un worldly for the role she is cast in, that of a best selling author who comes home for her father s final illness She seems somehow removed from the event that is at the heart of the story and the impression, one that is shared by most of the characters in the story, is that her sister s murder is important only as the basis for her best seller True, the reason for this is revealed later in the book but it is too little to late for the reader to develop any empathy with a character we really feel no connection with.I enjoyed Low Pressure but I was never really immersed in it An enjoyable read for a day at the beach and for that I recommend it
