Review: Confessed, by Lisa Cardiff

Confessed (Vargas Cartel, #3)Confessed by Lisa Cardiff
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Picking up where ‘Unveiled’ left off, ‘Confessed’ has Ryker working on a plan to rescue Hattie. Still being held hostage by a rival cartel, Hattie is experiencing the poor treatment that she was spared with her first kidnapping. This time around, violence and the fear of far worse are a grim reality for Hattie.

While there continue to be some issues with this story, I do think that the author has shown some improvement with each book. This book was much closer to the “dark” romantic suspense that I had anticipated when I started this series, which was a big plus for me. The first book didn’t deliver on the promises of dark content, but this book certainly did.

Although I did have many of the same problems with this book that I had with it’s predecessors. The storyline seems to progress in a rushed, and often disjointed, manner. Major turning points in the story seem to warrant little more than a snap of the fingers and aren’t fleshed out.

Ryker and Hattie’s relationship also needs a little more work to be believable to me. I need more to support their connection if I’m to believe that they’re as deeply in love as the book says. I’m not sold on their undying love. I need more.

That being said, this book did move at a faster pace for me. It had plenty of action to hold my attention. There was never a dull moment with this one.

Overall, this was an “okay” book for me. In fact, that is how I’d rate the whole series. It seemed to get a little better as it went along, but it needed a lot more work. Not one of the better stories of this type that I’ve read, but definitely not the worst either.
