Killer Date is the story of Jenny Caldwell and Reno Marks. Jenny is working hard to help get her sister Angie through college. But when Angie goes missing, she enlists the help of Scandals Investigation Agency and its owner, the gorgeous Reno. Charged with finding Jenny’s sister, Reno finds that he is feeling more than lust for the distressed damsel. Kathy Clark has written a fun and sexy romantic suspense. From the moment we find Angie’s beaten up boyfriend, you know that this story is going to take you on a roller coaster ride of emotions. Kathy Clark does a fantastic job setting the scene and ramping up the tension without using ridiculous scenarios.

I love that Jenny thinks that Reno couldn’t possibly be the guy for her, based on the exterior he presents. But his insight and his protective instincts, not to mention his delicious outer shell, have her singing a different tune as Killer Date progresses. Kathy Clark does a good job of sucking the reader right into the story and keeping us guessing about the outcome. The sharp writing helps maintain a proper pace between the suspense and the romance so it doesn’t feel disjointed. The chemistry between Reno and Jenny was incredible, and I’m eternally grateful that Jenny didn’t pull a lot of ridiculous stunts in an effort to “help” Reno. The action, once it began, seemed to be nonstop - whether it was creeping in the dark to a cartel safe house or a full-blown shootout. There was a nice twist near the end that kicked up the tension a bit before the final resolution. Killer Date is a story that is simply a fun time from start to finish.
