This was a good one. I realized I still have a ton of Gerri Hill books to read, and after really enjoying Hunter's Way I thought I would go for another of Hill's crime books, and I was not disappointed.
I thought the crime/mystery part of the books was really good. The serial killer made an interesting case, and you wondered if they could ever stop the killing.
Both mains were likeable. I enjoyed their banter, flirting and arguing, that lasted through most of the book. The romance developed a litt

Devil’s Rock is the first instalment of Deputy Sheriff Andrea Sullivan and FBI Agent Cameron Ross.

This story is a well crafted police procedural mystery thriller with romance thrown in! Love the witty dialogue and banter between Sullivan and Ross. And the kitten! Who would have thought a tiny kitten could turn, what appeared, a tough person to mush?

The case both women are trying to solve is a follow on from Partners, the third book in the Tori Hunter and Sam Kennedy series. Hunter makes a brie

This is a new author for me. I noted she has created a story of strong female characters. Andrea Sullivan once was a Los Angeles police officer. She moved to Sedona, Arizona and went to work as a deputy sheriff. Then serial murders of college students occur. The FBI send in Agent Cameron Ross to lead the investigation.

The book is well written and fast paced. I picked up the book to read because the story was taking place in Sedona. I am very tired of serial killers and wish authors would give t

I hate you Gerri Hill ;) I just spent two nights reading this wonderful story and now I have to read on (Hell's Highway). I have to, there is no choice. I can't ignore the small voices inside my head that tell me to read on, sleep is overrated ;) I really want to know how this story goes on. Anway, I loved this story. It had everything, a blossoming love story, just the right amount of tension and two awesome lead characters (as well as a little kitten named Lola). Gotta run, the next book is wa ...more

An entertaining police procedural which only loses a star thanks to overuse of the word algorithm. It's nice to see all genres of popular fiction represented with solid lesbian characters. The rescue kitty was sweet and a useful device to soften the hard edges on both Andrea and Cameron.

Gerri Hill did it again!

She knows exactly how to combine romance and thriller together.
It was an exciting serial killer story, but it's also a good romance.
So the best of romance and thriller in one book, that's what you get with Gerri Hill.

I loved the chemistry between Cameron and Andrea.
It was almost as good as The Hunter's Way Series.
As a thriller I think it was even better, but for me Hunter and Sam brought a bit more romance than Cameron and Andrea did.

I am looking forward to read the seq

I really like Hill's books. I enjoyed detective Hunter and Sam, but I really like Agent Ross. I like the banter between Ross and Sullivan, the chemistry between them is good. I like Hill's dialogue, to me the characters never seem contrite or over worked, there is a natural flow with the dialogue and I don't always find that in fiction. I can't wait to see what happens with Ross and Sullivan after Hell's Highway. I hope their journey continues.

Butch/ fem story but the fem is also tough cop and I liked it. Characters have burden. Do they always need such a dark history? I can't never be a protagonist.

Where to start..?

I enjoy Gerri’s characters and I can be a sucker for a cliche. I think Cameron & Andrea are my new favourite couple. (Formally CJ & Paige)

I liked how this book carried on from Partners (Hunter series) because that ending annoyed me a little! (I wanted them to catch the b**tard)

I’ve had to re read Angel Fire because I made the mistake of reading that BEFORE I knew who Andi & Cameron are!!!

This was a wonderful intro into the lives of both Andrea and Cameron, who are to play a part in future novels by Ms Hill. I love both their characters, and unlike the Tori/Samantha pairing, both seemed to have strong personalities, and strong wills, although Cameron most definitely commands the dominant role. Once again Ms Hill delves into the mind of a serial killer, and puts our heroines' lives in danger. Great read. I especially love the very real descriptions of Sedona, AZ; quite literally, ...more

This was a great crime/mystery. The romance wasn't my favorite, the characters seemed to have these two-sided personalities, one minute hard-core player the next softy with a kitten. BUT that doesn't distract from the story at all. I tend to weigh based on how much I love the characters and their development. Backdrop Sedona, I really felt like Hill captured the beauty of the area. Super satisfying read.

Not a favorite but I really enjoyed it, the characters were very good I liked both of their back stories, the both had been hurt with the way past relationships had ended and the also both had physical scars from past traumas they went through. Thought it was nice to see a case of tori hunters wrapped up in this book.

Nothing better than a good murder mystery. The way Cameron and Andrea opens up to each other is gradual and at just the right pace. The writing wasn't draggy and I love the ending of it. I look forward to more stories like this one.

Dear Gerri Hill,

I really do not like crime novels. But if you write them, I'll read them.
I'm just a sucker for your stories and characters.

I really enjoyed this. A lot of lesbian books have really cheesy plots or characters that are totally unrelatable but this story was different. I really felt like the characters we believable and the mystery was great. I didnt care for the way it ended so much, but I definitely enjoyed reading this.

Ross calling my Hunter arrogant didn't sit well with me but whatever!! I still loved Ross and Andrea, though they had too many scars!!!

What Amazing book

This is the 4th time I've read this book and by far it is still in my top 5. It so engaging, exciting , sexy, and hold your breath on the edge, kinda story. I love the crossover characters as they all blend well. The characters are well developed, just as the story plot got to where I thought I knew how It was gonna end, It shifted leaving me surprised.
This along with all Gerri Hills books are a must own and read multiple times.

I picked this one up because I'm always up for a good police procedural, throw in some lesbians, and hey sounds like a fun afternoon. Very quickly it was clear I misjudged this. The characters are the same "haunted" lesbian cops I must have read about in a dozen other books. And lest we forget--they're also earth-shatteringly attractive. The actual serial killer story started slightly interesting, but quickly veered into the land of ridiculous. I was rolling my eyes all throughout the "climactic ...more

Nice and sweet love story. Endearing characters, nice chemistry and banter. But Gerri Hill's stories lack originality... I try not to read too many of her books one after the other, because it's always the same pattern and same dynamics. Girl 1 meets new girl 2, they can't stand each other, then they realize they are attracted to each other, and then they fall deeply in love, in the midst of an investigation which is always very flat.

If you've never read a story by Gerri Hill, then you can be s

Well put together story in this FBI hot shot meats small town Deputy. Consider reading the Hunter series first but works well as a stand alone. Gerri Hill has put together even more great characters... I fell a bit in love with Lola!
I would read this again someday the partnership dynamics worked well, just enough push and pull to be believable. This is a well balanced story between the horror of the crime and the growing relationship of the crime fighters. Included some clever technology, I just

I've enjoyed many of Hill's books, but honestly prefer the romances, to her crime stories. I got this one because it was supposed to finally finish off a storyline held over from her Hunter trilogy, and it does that, although the crime story itself was a bit silly. Though the romance between Cameron and Andi was interesting enough to keep me reading to the end, the ending was just too pat for me. I doubt I'll bother picking up the sequel to this one.

another good story by Gerri Hill. The romance is expected and the ending a little forced. This is a continuation of her Tori Hunter stories - a character i liked much better than the 2 in this one.
Even with its drawbacks the story sucked me in, and I used all my reading time enjoying just this book.

Great book by Gerri Hill. Holds your attention so you want to read the whole thing in one sitting. Main characters are well-developed, but supporting cast remains in the background for the most part. Only left me with one question, which I will not post, so as not to ruin the book for anyone who might want to read the book.
Highly recommend this murder/mystery/romance.

I can't not just compare it with hunter's way really... the pace to connect the two main characters is kind of too fast to my liking (and of course compare to hunter's way but I suppose Andrea has nothing(e. g. a boyfriend or girlfriend) to stop her to give in to her desire. However, I still love the story plot of the book :)

Gerri began writing lesbian romance as a way to amuse herself while snowed in one winter in the mountains of Colorado, and hasn’t looked back. Her first published work came in 2000 with One Summer Night. Many more romances have followed, with the occasional murder mystery in the mix.
Gerri’s love of nature and of being outdoors usually makes its way into her stories as her characters often find the
