Former Delta Force operator Rhys Sinclair defied the odds by recovering from a traumatic brain injury that should have killed him. Given the chance to repay the beautiful doctor who saved his life by guarding hers, he can't say no--even if it means facing an unknown threat from the cunning terrorist his CIA-sanctioned team had been hunting in Afghanistan. The catch is, she...more

5+ stars.*****Re-read December 2012


Rhys is a spectacular anatomical specimen. Yum!

Luke's son, Rayne, is getting married in Vancouver. Therefore he needs a prime security detail to protect the people at the wedding and at the same time he is determined to look out for Nev as well. There is a medical conference in Vancouver the same weekend, and she will attend it to give a keynote speech. In fact, Nev wants to attend the conference to honor the memory of those good men who died in Afghanistan an...more
So far, my favorite book of the series. Neveah and Rhys were perfect together. No one writes military romantic suspense better than Kaylea Cross.

So far my favorite and in my opinion the hottest book of the series.

For this story we are back in Vancouver, for the marriage of Rayne and Christa as well as a medical conference where Neveah is one of the guests.

The suspense part of the book is great, well written and without any hole in the plot. Neveah is really an awesome heroine and with Rhys they make a beautiful and hot couple, but what I loved the most in this book is Rhys. *Le sigh*

Rhys, (very) tall dark and dangerous. Rhys, the highly...more

Powerfully moving, emotionally charged, and downright entertaining. Rhys and Neveah's book is one of the best romantic suspense novels I've read in awhile. In my opinion, each installment in this series gets just a little bit better than the last. It's fun to catch up with the rest of the gang as well. It's a bit sad to find myself facing Luke and Emily's story knowing it will end this superb reading experience. Highly recommend.
OMG!...I love Rhys!..definitely my favorite hero in this series so far. He's the tough, and oh so yummy, former Delta Force operative who never cracks under pressure...keeps his game face on not matter the circumstance, which is what his fellow soldiers admired about him but it also made it seem to others that he had no emotions. Enter Nev...the female doctor who Rhys was sent in to rescue from Iraqi terrorists in No Turning Back, and the first women to finally break through that armor of steel...more
Five great big stars! Five + stars! I'd add a bonus star if I could!

This book was so amazingly good! I loved both Rhys and Neveah, but especially Rhys! He is my absolutely favorite type of hero, the wounded tough guy. All tough and hard on the outside, but all soft and gooey on the inside, if only you can break through that shell. Oh my, did Nev ever break through that shell! The level of tension was really good too, almost too much and never giving you a break - it was a great ride! We got an u...more
Oh wow, this series just keeps getting better and better. I LOVED this story, it was SO GOOD! I must say that this is the first in the series where I actually LOVED the romance element. The suspense is a given, Kaylea Cross is awesome at writing suspense and the story wasn’t lacking in the least in that department. But Rhys and Nevea are the first couple that I actually rooted for! They were such a great couple (the best so far) – strong, resilient and together they were SCORCHING HOT! I also li...more
5 stars.

I really wish I could commit and write awesome reviews for Relentless and Absolution (Suspense Series, #5), but I've just got no time!

I absolutely adore Kaylea Cross's suspense voice and clean writing style. It's always polished and not excessively technical but with fascinating storytelling and awesome characters. I loved Rhys and Neveah. Not as much as Bryn and Dec and Cover of Darkness - which is my absolute fave of this series - but Relentless is still a winner.

OHHHH...... This series just keep getting better and better!!
Rys and Neveah are GREAT together!

Rys breakdown at the end of the book was heartbreaking. I was glad He finally allowed himself to 'feel', and let go of all the bottled up emotions He's kept in constant control of since a young child. I was also glad that Ben (his twin) was there to witness it, and 'rub' him about it.

Neveah is ONE amazing character! Her strength, character, love and bluntness was exactly what Rys needed to heal and tr...more
Loved the unravelling of the Alpha Male.

Relentless is an action packed, emotional roller coaster, complete with hotter than hades lovin', a determined fiesty heroine, a strong sexy hero and a close knit secondary cast.

Rhys Sinclair is the epitome of strong, silent type. His legendary iron clad control is unshakable, until he meets sweet, smart, sexy, feisty Neveah, the he proves true the old saying "The bigger they are, the harder they fall.". Neveah has survived the unimaginable at the hands...more
Guh, what an amazing book! This is my favorite, favorite, favorite of the series so far!! This book is a little different than its predecessors. There is no non-stop action here, but the intensity of the emotion will blow you away. You absolutely MUST read Cover of Darkness and No Turning Back before attempting this exceptions!

Rhys and Nev have both been through so much in the previous books, by the time we get to this one, the reader is dying for a break. Kaylea Cross gives us a bit o...more
Straight Shootin' Book Reviews
Get ready for it.... HOLEEEE crap. I LOVE Rhys. I thought I loved Dec and Ben. I was mistaken I LOVE Rhys. Nev is a lucky woman! I cruised through this one and now I find myself starting the last book of the series and I'm sad. The sexytimes in this one were INCREDIBLE.
I loved the two main characters in this book. They were smart, skilled and talented. They were believable and very likable. They didn't have much witty conversations but they still had great chemistry. Their relationship was the only part of the story I enjoyed.

I wasn't in love with the plot of the story, it dragged too much for my liking. I don't like reading about terrorism--that might be my main reason for not liking the plot? I can easily see how someone else would enjoy the plot though so...more
5 stars. The best so far. Alpha Rhys's finally feeling the love is memorable. Exciting action, wonderful romance, strong characters. See my review of Out of Her League on the entire series.
Books and Spoons
Kaylea Cross writes suspense that keeps me on the edge. The action in it self is sharp as knife, I'm literally biting my nails, on the edge of my seat, the tale so vivid that I feel like I'm there myself. The psychological tension, the build up keeps me hooked to the story.
The characters, even though true alpha males and independent, professional, kick-ass women, are not perfect. They are human, with flaws and weaknesses. But despite them, or because of them, they find a way to each others hear...more

review after I finish Absolution.

Kaylea Cross is becoming one of my favorite authors with her romantic suspense books. In this story, Luke’s son was getting married (Bryn would attend) in the same place that Neveah was speaking at a physician’s conference. Tehrazzi knew this and felt he could right all of his wrongs by taking out all of them at the wedding. He did not count on himself not being able to attend to do the honors and had to leave things up to others. Luke understands the threat and ask Declan, Ben, Rhys and his fri...more

Reviewed by Laura for Book Chick City.

'Relentless' is the second book in Kaylea Cross's suspense series that I have read. Having picked up 'No Turning Back', book number three in the series, earlier in the year. Each of the books reference the different characters in the other and our two leads for 'Relentless' are Rhys and Nev (Neveah), who were important characters in 'No Turning Back'. But I still think you could pick this up as a stand-alone novel in its own right, although perhaps having re...more

Kaylea Cross writes books that everyone should be reading

There are physical injuries as well as psychological ones that either cripple you or make you stronger. Rhys Sinclair is a former Delta Force member, survivor of childhood neglect and one near fatal injuries received during a particularly bad mission. He had risen above what would break other men and knows how to move on with life and keep pursing what he wants. Right now he is chasing after the beautiful and strong Doctor Neveah Adams, th...more
Georgie’s Review

Rhys Sinclair is a Delta Force Operative on a mission in Afghanistan to save a group of American doctors being held prisoner by the leader of a terrorist group. He comes across Dr. Neveah Adams, huddled over the body of an injured co-worker, and after rescuing them is severely injured when his vehicle explodes, witnessed by Dr. Adams. Galvanized into action, she helps save him from the burning wreckage and all are air lifted to the hospital.

This book was a pleasant surprise. It...more
What I liked so much about the book, aside from a storyline itself, was the hero and heroine. They are both such strong, likeable characters. Rhys and Neveah are desperately coping with the horrors from their pasts. All of it quite horrific indeed, but they don't let that destroy the connection and growing love they have found in each other.

Rhys was one of those tortured souls that had been wounded in action to the max degree. His character is extremely remote and he's one of those "men of few w...more
And here's the second twin's story. Very well done, and more and more suspenseful. Cross has created two great characters in these big, handsome, former Ranger twins. The pursuit of the terrorist continues and more and more danger occurs. Some characters from earlier books in the series show up here for a wedding. Good way to bring them all in, and you will be on the edge of your seat throughout. Read them in order and enjoy!
Wow. The worst thing about this book is that it ended. Apart from that I loved every thing about it. Nev and Rhys were such interesting characters and watching them develop both personally and in their relationship was riveting. Especially in their struggle to come to terms with the physical and psychological ordeals that they have gone through. There were some great candid conversations between them. Yes Rhys is a sexy alpha male but Nev is no soppy heroine - she is sexy, tough, independent and...more
Another great book by Kaylea Cross. This is the story of Neveah and Rhys and picks up immediately after the previous book. The characters and I really like Rhys and the way that he cares for Neveah. Neveah was a good character too; she was vulnerable yet strong. I really like the way that author writes, the story is realistic, the characters are genuine and you can relate to each one. The suspense is great and the romance is off the charts. I think this is my favorite book so far. Great story an...more
This one is tough to rate.

I Loved Rhys, he grew emotionally and was a great hero, Nev was really good too. The suspense was ok, it was set in Canada not Afghanistan so that was a nice change. I liked seeing everyone else ( and love LUKE). The sex was pretty good too.

What threw me was the gore, I don't do blood in my real life, but I've never had a problem reading a book - - until this one. It had a few moments that threw me (I had to stop and shake my head, I might have swore) lots of blood and...more
2.5 stars, The steamy romance was ok, the action suspense poorly plotted.,
Rhys and Nev made a good couple and interesting to read about from the romance standpoint. The plot itself was once again, too confusing, too many secondary villains and in the final showdown, Nev actually gets into an elevator with the wrong guy while the security team is yelling and banging outside to help her. The scene went on and on forever and after killing the bad guy she tries to save him because of her hippocratic...more

of tall the books in this series, this was my Fave i loved Rhys and the story AWESOME
It's been a while since I've read the first half of this series and forgot just outstanding it was! Kaylea writes in such a manner that you absolutely get lost into the story and her all her characters and there is always plenty of action, heavy on suspense and just the right amount of lovin'! And lord, can she bring these alpha men to their knees with these brilliant women that will leave tears in your eyes! I just love all her alpha men in this series!

A must read for fans of great romantic su...more

“Ben didn't disappoint. "See? You lost it and lived to tell about it." His voice dropped to a conspiratorial whisper. "You even survived a man hug." He rounded his eyes in feigned astonishment.
Wiping at his puffy eyes with his fingers, a watery laugh escaped him. "You always were an affectionate little shit.”
