Blane 36. Kade 28. Kathleen 24.

**Blane was 18 and Kade was 10 when he found him as a child. In the series it's mentioned 18 years have passed since Blane found Kade so that would make Kade 28, and since they're 8 years apart, Blane would be 36 and Kathleen 24 (as mentioned at the start of the series). Makes much more sense how Blane is always feeling the age difference between himself and Kathleen, that's a 12 year age gap. (less)

I am soooo excited about this new series. I LOVE books like this. Tons of suspense, endless drama, bucket loads of sexual tension, a sweet and adventurous heroine, and not one buy TWO smokin' hot, possessive alphas to battle for her affection!!! It's a PERFECT FUCKING STORM!!!!!!! The only problem.... I can't put the damn book down. I have a LIFE you know!!!

4 ACTION-PACKED STARS

I've had this on my Kindle forever and have no clue why I didn't get to it sooner. It's got everything I love in a book: two sexy ALPHA men, one naive yet brave heroine, mystery, suspense, adventure and of course, chemistry and sexual tension among the three of them. I'm not a fan of love triangles and it's too early to say if that's how this will pan out but needless to say, loved it.

What took me so long to start this series? I'm writing this review while I'm already in the middle of the third book in the series...it's so good, I didn't want to pause long enough to form coherent thoughts. So I'll keep this as short as my long winded brain can possibly keep it.

Kathleen and Blane's first meeting is hilarious...she trips and falls facedown in his lap, in front of a roomful of stodgy lawyers, no less. And for months afterwards, she avoids him like the plague around their law fi

4 Stars - Action-packed, thrilling and brazenly romantic well done suspense

Book #1


It was with great anticipation I started listening to the first book in this, by many much loved, suspense (m/f) romance series the other day.

No Turning Back was the first "book-rec" here on GR I got, almost two years ago, from Christine my very first GR friend as well.

Oh come oooonnn. This book, this series...it's everything I've tried to shy away from with it's cheesy dialogue, unrealistic plot and scenarios, insufferable and unnecessary love triangle, and completely unbelievable right-out-of the gate infatuations with the female lead. I didn't believe any of it for a second....

And it's exactly what I need while I'm down and out. I will continue on because I just damn well want to.

To sum it up: Kathleen Turner has goals. She moved to Indianapolis to start seeing to them, but things aren't going quite as well as she'd hoped. She's a runner for a high-powered law firm in town, not the most prestigious of positions, but it and her part-time bartender gig at least pays the bills. And one of the senior partners is a dreamboat in that obscenely rich, disturbingly good looking, slightly snobbish sort of way.

This book /series definitely falls into my “why the heck did I wait so long to read it” category! I very much enjoyed reading No Turning Back and have already started Turn To Me and dare I say, so far it is just as good if not better. ღ

Tiffany Snow did such a great job with this book. I love her writing style. She offers something just a little different in the Romantic Suspense genre and I was immediately sucked into the story. The characters were great and the plot was fill

First of all, I will not apologize for loving this series, but I will put a disclaimer on it: this book is ridiculous.

It has damsels in distress, scooby doo villains, and a love triangle involving smoking hot men. Every book has made me roll my eyes at some point and/or become angry with the heroine.

Yet I still love this series.

It's my favorite guilty pleasure. It's brain candy. Book crack. Cotton candy on a summer day. Addicting, fast paced, steamy, sexy fun.

Do not go in expecting a kick-ass

Say hello to Kathleen Turner, runner for a law firm by day and bartender by night. She found her friend murdered in her apartment one night, and because of her dissatisfaction with the police's investigation efforts, she embarks on a mission to find out who's behind it. She also managed to get her boss involved, the very same man whose lap she face-planted on a while back. He's now her lawyer, but their relationship seems more complicated than that.

Romantic suspense is at the top of my preferred reading choices. I have my tried-and-true auto-buys that never disappoint. But I'm always on the look-out for something new and promising in the romantic suspense genre. Well, there's definitely promise in NO TURNING BACK. From debuting author Tiffany Snow, this is the first book in her new romantic suspense series that will delight readers. Get ready because this one packs a powerful punch!

This book is for those who love action and suspense, infused with a whole lotta lovin. It’s an addictive read that only gets better with every turn of the page.

There’s really only 3 things you need to know about this book: it’s fun, fast-paced and kinda stupid. And by the way, I’m putting that out there as all positives – yep, even that last one. It totally worked with this book, I liked that I didn’t have to take any of it seriously, that I could just sit back and be entertained. It’s what I was in the mood for and this delivered.

Plausibility and logic can kiss my ass when I’m having this much fun.

This was such a fun, engaging book!! I was really in need of something different and this was the perfect choice. I was immediately swept up in the story and it's one of those books you just don't want to put down. The main characters were great. Kathleen got herself into some predicaments, but she was a likable and entertaining character. I easily could have given this book 5 stars, but I hear the books keep getting better in the series so I may as well leave room for improvement:)

After reading a lot of angsty NA's lately I really fancied a change, when my friend recommended this series to me, I realised it was one I had looked at quite a few times but just skipped it, not sure why but I just thought it wouldn't be for me. Luckily on this particular night I decided to just buy it and give it a try.

Kathleen works for a law firm as a runner. She has moved to Indianapolis from her small town life so she doesn't know many people.

What a nice change from the usual romance I read. Kathleen finds herself in a situation involving dead bodies, conspiracies, fraud, her gorgeous boss Blane and the mysterious Kade.

I like Kathleen but I'm a bit worried her personality is going to get her in more trouble.

Blane and Kade. Which team am I on? I cant decide yet. Both may well be heading on to my book boyfriend list.

For me, this had the perfect mixture of suspense, romance and sex. I liked the pace and the writing style and Im

I really liked this one. It was full of mystery, suspense, and action. I loved Blane, he is so sexy and thoughtful even though he tries to act uncaring.



I also love Kade! He is damaged, dark, dangerous, and delicious.



Kade is all hard on the outside, but soft on the inside. It's not often, but when you do get to see glimpses of him without his tough exterior, it makes you melt completely. It's a difficult choice Kathleen



has to make. I personally, would just take both. This was an on-the-edge-of-y

This is the first book in one of my new favorite series! The story revolves around Kathleen, a runner for a law firm/bartender at night, that gets herself into serious trouble after her neighbor is murdered. Kat is trying to figure out who killed her neighbor with the help of Blane, one of the partners at the law firm she works for. The chemistry between Kat and Blane is intense and I loved their interactions with each other! Throw in Kade, a mysterious gun for hire that keeps popping up as well ...more

"At least this one is more entertaining than the others," Kade said to Blane just loudly enough for me to overhear. "It's like Hooker Barbie masquerading as Nancy Drew."


Welp, Kathleen is no Veronica Mars. Not many can be, but I had certain expectations going into a series about a woman investigating her friend's death, especially a woman who works at a law firm with someone like Blane Kirk. (that name *giggle*) I assumed there would be a strong heroine who took down the big bad with her wits

Most women probably would rather have flowers or jewelry - I was grateful to have a new battery for my car.

Meet Kathleen Turner, daughter of Ted Turner and granddaughter of one Tina Turner (which I guess explains the theme of the titles in this series. Cute.) She's part law firm runner, part bartender and 100% Kristen Ashley's Rock Chick. In that she usually gets herself into a great deal of trouble with her twisted logic but still ends up being the heroine the two hot guys are fighting

I enjoyed the book quite a bit, the heroine Kathleen is 24 and works two jobs to make ends meet, she is a runner at a law firm and a bartender. She moved to town for a fresh start after losing her cop father and cancer ridden mother. She finds the partner at her law firm attractive but he is too far out of her league and plus is a big man-whore, her admiring from afar leads to a very awkward first encounter, she falls on his lap and from then on she does her level best to ignore him.

“They had a lot of rules that got in the way," Kade said dismissively.
"Those are called laws, Kade," Bland said stiffly.
"Whatever they are," Kade continued unperturbed, "I decided I would enjoy myself more as a ...... freelancer."
"Vigilante, you mean," Blane clarified.
"You say tomato......" Kade sighed in mock frustration.”
