Review by Poppy

Two brothers. Two best friends. One robbery gone wrong.

With a court date looming, a near-fatal car accident, and a house invasion, the four surviving witnesses to an armed robbery know they are targets. In a desperate attempt to stay safe, they take matters into their own hands and go off the grid a week before the trial.

Danny St. John was stuck in a dark place of guilt and regret after a personal tragedy. On the run from violent criminals, he is forced to spend time with the one woman who makes him feel too much. Victoria Lopez needs to protect her heart, but she also misses the guy Danny used to be and thinks she might be able to bring him back. Now, evading gunmen together in Sequoia National Forest, Vic will risk everything to keep Danny safe.

Eric St. John isn’t a big fan of his sister-in-law-to-be, Zoe Turner. Sure, she’s beautiful, but also bossy and brash. When Eric and Zoe are forced to rely on each other for survival, he sees a side to Zoe he never anticipated, a side he definitely likes. But as the two grow closer, so do the men hunting them down.

Time nearly runs out as each couple must not only brave the perils of the wilderness and their growing feelings for each other, but also outwit their pursuers in a deadly game of cat and mouse.

The suspense is high in in Under the Radar.

Dee J. Adams does a good job keeping the reader turning pages in her latest romantic suspense novel. It’s a decent premise: witnesses to a crime having to hide before the trial to stay alive. These four, though, don’t use the Marshalls…they take off on their own. Gathering supplies, including common sense items like wet wipes (a nice touch of reality) they head into the woods… four folks with only one thought: stay alive. Romance was the farthest thing from their minds.

Of course, things begin to change between them. They see each other in a light they hadn’t before. Desperate situations can bring out strengths and traits that would never have been shown under regular circumstances. I was both glad to see the two couples grow together, and a bit frustrated by having them share page time. I appreciate why the author chose to do what she did, but because each couple didn’t get a full story to themselves, it did keep me from being fully invested in either of them. Also, it’s always tough to balance the “run for your life” type suspense with a growing romance.

The suspense, though, was top notch and I have no quibbles there. I haven’t read anything by the author before, and I know this is part of a series. I could sense that fact in a few tidbits, but honestly the books stands well on its own. I’m sure that followers of the series might catch little innuendos and facts that I may have missed, but my enjoyment wasn’t marred by this fact.

Looking for a romantic suspense that’s heavy on well-written suspense? Give this one a try. I think you’ll enjoy it as much as I did.
