If you like romantic suspense - stop what you are reading and read this book! I am just giddy over how much I loved it! It was the perfect combination of kick ass action and a wonderful reunion between the MCs who are already in love. It starts off fast, calms down a bit and then races to the end. My only complaint is that I would have liked more.

Colt is perfect. And I mean perfect!!! There are just no other words to describe him.

Skye is my hero. I want to be her in another life. She kicked as

A new romantic suspense series from Katie Reus, is certainly something to get excited about, and Resurrection delivers romance, action and adventure in the author’s usual inimitable style.

I really enjoyed this one, Katie is one of my go-to authors if I am looking for a bit of action and suspense with my romance, and the action was definitely there wi

Katie Reus gave us another flawless romantic suspense with a kick ass heroine and a swoon-worthy hero!!! And it is 100% safe ladies!!

Legendary CIA agent, Skye Arevalo fakes her own death to keep her partner/lover, Colt Stuart, alive. Faking her death was easy, trying to stay in the shadows while hunting the man who destroyed her life is another matter. When she hears through her contact that Colt's childhood friend Mary Grace, isn't dead but actuall

This book was interesting. Why did I go full 5 stars? Because there is no hidden double standards, or chauvinism or trash talking.

Hero, who is definitely a man, not an cheaper imitation, made the mistake of using a cliched derogatory term. Did the heroine kill him? No. She’s a mature adult. She educated him and the hero was forever her slave from that moment.

No, he wasn’t offended when she called him out. He learned and he fell in love that p

Resurrection has me excited to see where Katie Reus is going to take this series. There is such a great cast of characters in this first book that it just builds the anticipation for the next one to publish.

Colt is a swoon worthy Hero with just the right mix of possessiveness and protectiveness. Skye is a badass heroine who not only can take care of herself, but ends up being a Hero all on her own. To see Colt not feel threatened by this, but actually love her more for it, made these two a grea

This is a great start to a new series by Katie Reus. It was a good blend of action, suspense, romance and world building. I absolutely adore this group of friends that are a family in all the ways that it matters. I can't wait to see all of them find their love and get their hea.

In this book we meet Colt and Skye. Skye had to fake her death 6 months ago and it almost destroyed Colt. This story brings them together again. I loved that while Colt was angry with her decision, he didn't make her pa

Katie Reus isn’t an author I’ve read before, and I’m actually unsure why as looking at the raft of books she’s published she’s absolutely up my street. And with action, suspense and a good helping of steamy second-chance romance, Resurrection kicks the Redemption Harbour series off with a bang.


What immediately struck me was how there’s no quiet lead in and readers are thrown right into the thick of things as the characters come to grips with the kidnap and assumed death of one of their own, Mar

Resurrection is the first book in the new series Redemption Harbor by the talented Katie Reus and I loved it!
I love how author Katie Reus always manages to bring out the feels with her words. Once again she's managed to capture my mind and heart with Resurrection.
I loved Syke and Colt, they were amazing, likable and endearing characters that you couldn't help but fall in love with.
I loved their passion, I loved their commitment and I loved how hard they loved each other.

This is only book one in the new Resurrection Harbor series by Katie Reus, and I can already tell it will be one of my new favorite romantic suspense series.

I love this author’s writing, and as expected, Skye and Colt were off-the-charts explosive together.

A steamy, action-packed and thrilling read I couldn’t put down. Can’t wait to read book two, Savage’s story 😊
Highly recommended!

Overall Opinion: This was alright for me. Suspenseful romance is always hit or miss for me because I need a good balance between the love story and the suspense. I also struggle with second chance romances if I don’t get to experience any of the development of feelings. So! Right off the bat this wasn’t working in my favor because it had no development of feelings that I got to experience and that seemed to further the feeling that the romantic aspects were lacking in comparison to the s

Colt’s woman died eight months ago in a warehouse explosion. He’s doing what he has to do to get through and right now that’s helping out a friend whose wife was reported as dead. However, Colt’s got a lead that she’s not and he’s headed to Mexico to check it out.

Action-packed, romance-filled, and riveting to say the least; this story will grab you from page one!

CIA agent Skye fakes her own death to protect her partner and lover Colt Stuart and all those he holds dear. She’s never stopped loving him and knows she hurt him deep but she’s also sure what she did was for the best. When a dear friend of Colt is kidnapped she sees her rescuing as an opportunity to somewhat make it up to him, and although he might never know it was she who res

Skye Arevalo faked her own death to protect the ones she loved. In hiding for the last 6 months, she has stayed vigilant and continued to work her CIA contacts, even if they don’t know who she really is.

Colt Stuart goes rogue, off books and solo, in order to learn if the rumors are true. A friend he thought was dead is alive and captive. In his search, he learns that not only is his friend alive, but the love of his life is also still alive. He would have gone to any length to protect her, but

I am a HUGE fan of this author and I when I heard she was releasing a new series, I could not have requested it quick enough.

This is the first book in the Redemption Harbor series and its all about Skye and Colt. They are both CIA operatives who are also partners as well as lovers. Skye ends up faking her own death in order to protect Colt and the family that he loves.

There’s always a sense of excitement and trepidation each time I begin a new series, particularly what looks like a whole new set of novellas—akin to the Red Stone Security series—that Katie Reus is starting. It’s fresh meat to devour, crudely speaking, and sinking my teeth into a romantic suspense book just knowing there’s more to come is always an unforgettable feeling that I seek over and over again.

I’ve been on a Katie Reus kick lately so when I saw Resurrection on Netgalley and noted it was the first in a new series I jumped on it. Like the previous KR books I’ve read, this had an interesting storyline with some awesomely great characters but there were some plot holes and timeline jumps that bugged the crud out of me.

Great start to the series. I enjoyed the H&h, the storyline, and I certainly enjoyed getting to know all the secondary characters who I’m assuming will be getting books of their own. Colt and Skye are both CIA operatives who are in a relationship until Skye “dies” during an operation. Colt is wrecked, he loved Skye and is having a hard time getting over her death.

Months later one of Colt’s best friends from childhood, a Doctor, is also presumed dead because while i

Colt is a former Marine, who got a clue that his friend’s wife Mary Grace might be alive in Mexico and he decides to go and rescue her, if it’s true. On the mission he learns that somebody else is also rescuing Mary Grace and to a surprise it comes out that it’s his partner Skye, who had faked her own death months ago. Colt had been devastated by her death and wants to know what happened. When Mary Grace eventually tells what made her act the way she had, they have to figure out how to

Colt Stuart is an ex-Marine and covert CIA agent and he is heading out on an off the books mission to try to rescue a close friend believed dead. What he did not expect to find was his past love that he thought was dead to show up. He has been mourning her death and this throws him for a loop. He is equally angry and betrayed, and relieved and happy. He is protective, smart, dependable. and charismatic. He does not hesitate to stand up for those he cares about.

It's been a while since I read a book by Katie Reus and starting a new series is the perfect way to go. If you are in the mood for fast action and suspense, sizzling hot chemistry and unconditional friendship, then this is a really good book to read and a really great start to Ms. Reus's new series.

RESURRECTION is an easy read, with less action and suspense than I expected, but the appeal of the story lies in the unqualified love the characters have for each other as shown in the bond of friends

I just love a good second chance romance. Happily for me, Katie Reus did this one right. This book is the first of a new series and Katie takes a little time to introduce some terrific side characters in addition to a team of really kick ass MCs.

Both Skye and Colt were great characters, they were strong, clever, capable, confident, big hearted, and loved each other. There is no OW/OM poop in this story and the way the separation happened was very believable. I loved that Katie

Espionage and deaths. And selflessness. Good people helping the world get rid of the bad. Cornerstone of a Katie Reus novel and character structure.
A fast, furious read moving from one thrilling moment to the next dangerous predicament.
First in the Redemption Harbor series.

I love Katie Reus because her writing style just evokes a range of emotion because her characters are so multi-faceted. The combination of good writing with one of my favorite narrators, Sophie Eastlake, was clearly a winning duo. The narrator shined at the task of bringing these characters to life and I finished this audiobook in one day.

In this series beginner, we have two couples intertwined as the two male leads are former marines, CIA operatives and friends for years. Off the bat, there was
ARC Review
This is the kind of work that lets Katie Reus really stretch her romantic suspense muscles and shine. From the get go, this is a page turner. It has a two story lines - one that features a second chance romance and one that features a secondary character. They are not equal, and I confess, I could use a little more of the relationship aspect of the second story. It could be flushed out as a novella or full length book, but still you can see the strength of the relationship between the

Yay! A new series by one of my favorite authors. Katie Reus is fantastic and is always an immediate pick of mine. This is a series about seven friends that grew up together in Redemption Harbor and are now all badasses. With that being said, when one hurts, they all hurt and this starts with meeting Colt and Skye. The are new partners who work for the CIA and their banter is funny.

Katie Reus keeps grabbing this NetGalley reviewer’s attention. First with her O’Connor Family series, then with Saved by Darkness. Now Resurrection has risen the bar with its action packed drama and won’t back down/will risk it all for each other main couple.

If you are into private security but also work with government agencies backdrop themed tales, you likely will enjoy Skye, the beautiful, tough as nails, warrior type heroine who does whatever it takes to keep Colt, her GI Joe, alpha protec
