THE REBOUND EFFECT by Linda Griffin is listed as a romantic suspense. It is not a romance. This book is a domestic psychological thriller. If considered in that genre, it is a high intensity read of a single mother on the rebound and the new man who comes into her life while women are disappearing in the area.

Teresa Lansing is a struggling single mother working as a veterinary assistant in the small town of Cougar. She is doing the

The first instinct of a mother is to protect her child in any way possible and for Teresa Lansing that included her son’s sense of loss when she broke up with her fiancé. Now the attractive and larger-than-life S.W.A.T. member, Frank McAllister has come barreling into her life, overpowering her senses with his powerful personality. He is everything she should want, and yet he is moving too fast, demanding too much and even as her inner “adult” screams for her to take a step back, she makes one ...more

3.5/5.0

This book is one that will make readers really think about trust, whether it be in oneself or those one lets into the most private parts of their life.

Read full review in the 2019 May issue of InD'tale Magazine.

After the breakup of her last boyfriend, Teresa is more cautious when it comes to dating. She’s not only protecting her heart but her deaf young son too. So when she first meets Frank, she plays it cool. He comes on strong, though, and she’s attracted to him. Before she can figure out her own feelings, he pushes for a serious relationship. The sex is great but there’s something about Frank she can’t quite put her finger on. Her ex-boyfriend is also back in her life and is trying to win her back. ...more

I was expecting this to be a romantic suspense novel, as I think that's what it was listed as on NetGalley. It isn't. I think it's actually a shame that it's been listed as romantic suspense as there are plenty of people who would enjoy this thriller who might be put off the idea of it being a romance.
Our main character Teresa has terrible taste in men. She has a broken marriage behind her (where she was married to someone who couldn't cope with the fact that their son was deaf) then she has an

Judy & Marianne from Long and Short Reviews
There is no way in a million years that I would have guessed how this story was going to end. For that reason alone this book is worth the time to read. It is more of a psychological thriller romance than a suspense/mystery romance.
The synopsis does a really good job giving you an idea what this book is about. What it doesn’t tell you is that the reader isn’t left with a typical happily ever after. There is a twist that left me feeling like a pretzel with no book boyfriend to dream about.

I’m going to start by what??? I’m all about protecting my children especially since I have a special needs son. This book has a mother who divorced her husband and left a cheating boyfriend to protect her deaf son. But then attracts an attractive, swat officer. And let me tell you things go great who wouldn’t want to be pampered and spoiled and cared about. Then it gets bad. Women are disappearing, and things are heating up in the small town.

I’m just not even sure how to review this book. I

A psychological thriller that has the potential to be a page turner. The story is intriguing and some may find the characters relatable. I found Theresa to be very frustrating and a character that I couldn’t connect with. I couldn’t get into this and struggled through. This book just was not for me. However, I encourage others to give it a shot because it may be just what you are looking for.
