I bought it after I saw Jane at Dear Author talking about it on Twitter. Once I checked out the blurb and cover there was no going back since I’m a big fan of Romantic Suspense and I started A Righteous Kill immediately. I read the last hour of this book at the gym and let me tell you, the story was so engrossing and captivating - it was the easiest and fastest hour at the gym ever!
This book grabs you right from the start and doesn’t let up. Hero, yes the heroine’s name is Hero is smart, sexy and able to hold her own given the situation she finds herself in. And Luca, ah poor. Mr. totally in charge FBI agent Alpha male didn’t stand a chance against Hero’s charms. Their connection was immediate on the banks of the river as Hero struggled for her life and Luca became her saviour. Man the sexual chemistry between these 2 if OFF THE CHARTS. Luca was like a volcano just waiting to erupt.
Part of the reason I love RS is dissecting the clues the author gives you while reading and trying to figure out who the killer is. Ms. Byrne does a great job of keeping you guessing right to the end between anyone of the suspects.
I will definitely be reading more from Kerrigan Byrne. As a matter of fact Hero has a whole family of brothers and a sister with their own unique names whose stories are in the works. I can’t wait. And I hope Luca’s partner Vince may even get his own book. ...more

Once I got over my initial disappointment I realized this was a blessing in disguise since I hate this new trend towards serializing books. But I’d read Snow’s Kathleen Turner series and loved it so I really, really wanted to read Blank Slate. Good things come to those who wait.
Color me excited the day I discovered Blank Slate available in it’s entirety on Amazon and reasonably priced to boot. Win-win!
Clarissa O’Connell is Kathleen Turner reincarnate...2.0...and is just as much as a trouble magnet. Poor FBI agent Erik Langston never stood a chance.
If you’ve enjoyed Snow’s Turner series then you will certainly enjoy Blank Slate and it’s non-stop, over the top action and sexy tension between an FBI agent out to catch his man...err girl...even if she can’t remember her checkered past.
Thoroughly enjoyable. Blank Slate is a wild ride. ...more
This book had a good premise. A mob boss daughter hooking up with an FBI agent to bring down her Mafia, head honcho father and her skivvy, ev3.5 stars
This book had a good premise. A mob boss daughter hooking up with an FBI agent to bring down her Mafia, head honcho father and her skivvy, evil brother was enough to intrigue me. I always enjoy when a relationship develops between twp people despite seemingly insurmountable circumstances.
Throw in a superstar soccer player who the mob wants to kill and uses his family (wife and young son) to reel him in and it was a good story. It just had a little too much back story for me that I really didn’t care about and will admit I skimmed through.
My problem with The Good Daughter was I wanted more of Dave and Marissa. The dynamic between the FBI straight-shooter Dave and the Mafia Princess Marissa is what drew my attention. It’s an interesting combo by definition and I just wanted more of their story.
A vast majority of this book was focused on the soccer star Sandro and his wife Nia who is kidnapped by the mob. Nia certainly showed she was no powder puff and is in fact quite a tough chick while being held captive. I guess kicking soccer balls comes in handy (she’s a soccer star in her own right). She got in some good licks!
It certainly sounds as if the author plans to feature Dave and Marissa in a future book because their story is far from resolved by the end of The Good Daughter so I expect to see them at some point and I will certainly try this author again. ...more
