Lover is a thrilling journey you don’t want to take if you haven’t yet read the first book in T.M. Smith’s A Survivor Story series. Which by the way is fantastic! For those who have read Survivor, you’re gonna love the secrets this book reveals about Taylor Langford’s parents deaths, the behind-the-scenes, as well as the build-up of more thrills that bring Detective Davis, Agent Landers and the loveable Shannon Dupree together.

Within a three year time span during the Langford investigation, Smith introduces readers to the three main characters of Lover: Shannon Dupree, running from abuse at the tender age of eighteen. Rory Landers, undercover agent on a five year cold case who has fallen for a man he’s meant to protect. And Rand Davis, newly appointed Senior Detective who is beginning a new life after his long-time boyfriend cheated on him. Each looking for “that guy” to complete him.

Smith truly knows how to weave a tale and capture an audience. Little by little these men become part of each other’s lives and you can feel the tension build as to where the murder mystery is going to lead.

From here, as with the previous installment in the series, Smith walks us through seven years as these three men meet by fate, face desires, mount obstacles, grow, change and realize what they may be looking for may be nothing of what they imagined.

Five years after fleeing, Shannon is getting ready to make a new life with the support of his friend Taylor Langford and no longer fears an unexpected arrival from his ex. For Rory and his partner, Connie, their unsolved missing person case is heating up into a serial killer investigation; as a result Smith expertly brings Rand into the mix when he and Rory must partner together to try and solve it.

Smith truly knows how to weave a tale and capture an audience. Little by little these men become part of each other’s lives and you can feel the tension build as to where the murder mystery is going to lead.

Smith builds up Lover to be a thrilling suspense read and at its culmination a romance is born.

Upon first meeting the “killer” I could almost predict the twist… but oh how delightful it is. And speaking of twists, for those who’ve read Survivor – you’re in for a real treat with the true web of deceit in Taylor’s case. And I’m willing to bet there’s more where this came from.

Smith builds up Lover to be a thrilling suspense read and at its culmination a romance is born. Overall it’s a story about three men’s path to love, not about the sex. A little heavy on the end Smith does spice it up with some passion, a little joining and a happily-ever-after.

What I enjoy most about her A Survivor Story series is T.M. Smith’s knack for being able to weave together the storyline, setting a stage for the characters interaction and the plot. Lover is no exception as she introduces “Mannie” to readers… and Blair. Their attraction and emotions bleeding off the pages. Oh pleeeeease bring us their fantastic journey Ms. Smith!
