Tia Parker always seems to fall for the wrong guy. But when she meets Evan Spence at a friend's wedding, it seems like she's finally found Mr. Right. Their spark is undeniable, but reality may extinguish any hope for a future: they are separated by thousands of miles. As the couple struggles with the pitfalls of pursuing romance long-distance, Tia is taken off guard by a new arrival in town. Colby Farren is handsome and charming and has made it clear he's interested in Tia. Yet despite his obvious infatuation, Tia can't seem to get Evan out of her mind. Caught between the attention of two very different men, her complicated love life is soon eclipsed by much more sobering concerns. A break-in at her apartment is just the first in a series of bizarre events, each bringing her one step closer to a dangerous liaison. And knowing who to trust could be a matter of life and death.

My Review

PROXIMITY is a romantic suspense that goes from tame and slowly builds to a climatic ending. Readers will enjoy the small-town setting as well as the sweet romance. Those who read OBSESSION by the same author, will enjoy cameos from Kendra and Charlie. An overall enjoyably suspenseful story.

I wasn't quite sure with this one if the author would give readers a goose chase with who the villain would be or if she would lead us on while having another villain in mind. I was kind of hoping for the latter as the prior was almost too clear cut. I won't spoil who it ends up being though. I felt like the suspense was fairly mild until almost the end when things get really intense. The romance was super sweet. I liked how it played out although I would have enjoyed a little more chemistry. The ending was great in both the suspense and romance department!

On a side note, we lived in the town this story is set in for a year and it was rather fun to read and relate to that aspect of this story and know what the author was talking about.

In the end, was it what I wished for? I enjoyed reading this story. It had some areas I would have liked developed more, but otherwise it delivered some sweet romance and climatic suspense.

Content: Some violence that fit the book and genre - still clean.
Source: I received a complimentary copy from the publisher, which did not require a positive review nor affect it in any way.
