    This was my first time reading a Mary Burton novel although I have read one of the books she has written using the name Mary Ellen Taylor Never Look Back was a solid thriller with an intriguing main character I didn't realize until after I had finished the book this is part of the Criminal Profiler series however you can easily read this book as a standalone novelAgent Melina Shepard works for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations and she goes undercover as a prostitute with the hope she can find some answers about the disappearance of two women She barely escapes an attack by a john and soon it becomes clear that guy is a serial killer FBI agent Jerrod Ramsey is sent to Nashville to help track down the killer And that's all you really need to know other than Jerrod and Melina will be working togetherMelina is the main character but the story occasionally bounces back and forth between other characters including Jerrod and the serial killer Melina has an unusual but interesting backstory I preferred the parts of the book that focused on her or Jerrod rather than the other characters however each character had a role in advancing the plot so I would say it was necessary to feature so many people in order to get all the pieces of the puzzle I will give the author credit because there was a major plot twist that I didn't see coming at all Anytime a writer can catch me off guard that is a good thing But I would say the rest of the novel follows of a predicable path It's enough to keep you entertained but I wouldn't place it among the best thrillersmysteries I have ever read It does make for a good mindless escape from real life for a couple of hours type read I would definitely read another book by this author as this book held my interest which isn't an easy task these days

    NOW LIVE US UK Never Look Back gives us not one but two crazy storylines involving the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and the FBI Working together Jerrod Ramsey's and Melina Shepard track down a serial killer that Jerrod has been after for years and a newly discovered killer that leaves behind gruesome trophies It may sound like too much for one book two different serial killers working in the same town but Ms Burton weaved these different stories together perfectly and they had me so intrigued I didn't want to put the book down The characters were well developed and I easily fell into their lives and wanted to know with each page Overall this was an amazing book to read and one I definitely recommend for all Romantic Suspense lovers ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review

    Two serial killers? Two totally opposite modus of operandi's? Both with eyes for MelinaYikes On edge thriller here as you'll be taken back to a time when dates involved prostitutes and one thing was on the agenda for the eveningWhat's worse is Jerrod has been chasing all of this for years with gruesome results and each killing is getting darker and disturbingSadly if something isn't done soon will dieIt's a uick paced read with twist and turns that are beyond imaginationHang in and enjoyThank you Mary the pub NetGalley and Kindle for this ARC in exchange for this review

    2 stars Never Look Back was convenient? There were too many coincidences throughout the novel for me to really connect and engaged with the story It didn't help that was a little lost in the beginning with the way the main plot was set up and presented and it took until about 30% for me to really get a good grasp on what was going onThe characters were not that well developed? Melina did have a strong voice and distinct personality and we did learn uite a bit about her as the story progressed but Jerrod felt very one dimensional It was like his character development was sidelined in favor of creating extremely convenient plot points that connected to Melinda's pastI'd say from the middle until around the 85% mark the story was great and really interesting The pace held steady and there was a lot of tension as the characters slowly started to put the puzzle pieces together Then the romance kind of appeared out of nowhere and put a damper on that I wasn't a fan of how fast that developed and how it happenedThe ending was also a bit underwhelming? And again it was rather convenient how everything was set up There wasn't a lot of impact on me as a reader personally when it was supposed to be the climax of the novel The final chapter was super sweet though and worked as a nice closure Series #3 in the Criminal Profiler seriesPOV Told from Melina and Jerro'd POV Content Warnings view spoilerChild neglect hide spoiler

    After multiple women go missing Agent Melina Shepard of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation makes the impulsive decision to go undercover as a prostituteEnter lone wolf FBI agent Jerrod Ramsey Stonewalled by a lack of leads he and Melina investigate a scene where a little girl has been found abandoned in a crashed vehicle They open the trunk to reveal a horror show and uickly realize they’re dealing with two serial killers with very different MOs This is the 3rd book of the series but I didn't read the other 2 and still understood what was going on I really enjoyed the characters in this book and even though it says romantic suspense there was suspense for me than romance and the romance didn't take away from what was going onI received this from NetGalley for review

    Never Look Back was an enjoyable read that features two engaging storylines that converge in an action packed finaleAfter several women go missing Tennessee Bureau of Investigation agent Melina Shepard goes undercover as a prostitute in the hopes of catching the man responsible But when she narrowly escapes becoming a victim herself she uickly uncovers evidence that points to her suspect being a serial killer In over her head Melina receives help from FBI agent Jerrod Ramsey to work the case But when the pair get called to the scene of a car crash with grisly evidence in the trunk the pair uickly discover they’re hunting two serial killers with very different motivesInitially I expected a plot centered around two different serial killers to be a bit convoluted but ultimately the author does a great job keeping the storylines separate The storylines do eventually converge in large part due to Melina’s involvement but it happens uite close to the end of the book Both storylines were interesting and I didn’t favor one over the other as is usually the case in a book with two plotlines I was invested in finding out who the killers were and I actually was surprised by how early that information was revealed The ending of the book was action packed and I liked the way the author wrapped up both plotsMelina’s character was interesting and definitely the strongest in the book Abandoned as a child on the side of the road Melina was adopted and her experiences as well as having a cop as her adoptive father led to her choosing a career in law enforcement Melina’s background plays a big role in this book and I was curious what direction the author was going to take things Ultimately I liked how the connection to Melina’s past played out The romance in this book develops very late in the book which isn’t that unusual for this author’s books based on most of the ones of hers I’ve read Personally I enjoyed the addition of the romance and I liked that it took time for it to developOverall I ended up really liking Never Look Back and I highly recommend this author’s books if you’re looking for great suspense with just a touch of romance I received an advance copy of this book from Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review

    Advanced Reader Copy ARC provided by the Author and Publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an fair and honest reviewGood suspense and so so romance It seems that and authors who call themselves Romantic Suspense authors are shorting their readers on the Romance part of that label The plot was fractured and had you going in a couple of different directions It was interesting how the author chose to resolve itMelina Shepard is an agent with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Her friend who runs a mission aiding women working the streets has alerted Melina to the disappearance of two women she has been working with Melina goes undercover but not officially or with backup and gets a hit from a serial killer She was lucky not to become his next victimThe FBI take and interest in the case They have been tracing this baddie for years without much luck is identifying him Melina is the only woman to go up against him and survive Special Agent Jerrod Ramsey is excited to finally have a starting point to track him While working that case he and Melina are called to the scene of a car crash with a child left behind and a jar of severed fingers in the trunk Now there are two serial killers working in NashvilleWhen the abandoned child brings up some painful memories from her past she turns to Ramsey and they grow closer as they track down their killers But one killer will not be satisfied until he kills the one who got away3 12 Stars

    35 Stars out of 5 Third in the Criminal Profiler Series but the first I’ve read by this author Started a little slow for me but once it picked up I flew thru it Writing style was easy but for some reason I had a hard time time wrapping my head around following two serial killerskept trying to make them one in the same Melina Shepard is a strong female protagonist with one heck of a backstory She goes undercover without approval and narrowly misses becoming a serial killers next victim Enter Jerrod Ramsey FBI who evidentially has been following one of the killers and comes in to assist My mind had a tendency to wander off and on thru this story Not sure if it was due to the flip flop of killers I would have preferred one strong storyline instead of the two Melina’s backstory was interesting and heartfelt The romance felt rushed and thrown in Could have used of the tension and slower follow thru One a whole enjoyable reading if you are into crime dramas Fast paced good character development uniue storyline Thanks to Ms Burton Montlake Romance and NetGalley for this ARC Opinion is mine alone

    45 starsIt's hard to say if Agent Melina Shepard is lucky or unlucky in lifeShe's lucky she managed to escape a serial killer's attempt to capture herShe's unlucky that that serial killer is now obsessed with herThat turn of events is the focus for the first part of this book As she teams up with FBI Special Agent Jerrod Ramsey to find this serial killer who preys on prostitutes torturing and eventually killing them With Melina's close call the two get an added jump on the killer I love a good detective procedural story learning the process these bright people go thru to hunt down a madman Melina and Ramsey work well together feeding ideas and new intelligence to one another and letting the facts guide themBut things get complicated when a new crime occurs that ties to Melina's past and her luckFlashing back to your childhood we learn that she was unlucky to be abandoned on the side of a road it was unknown then if this was a family member or someone elseShe's lucky that the cop who finds her takes her under his wing and later adopts her Why is this whole new story thrown in? It took me a while to sort it out but let’s just say that Melina past may tie to this serial killer The author did a good job playing with my head There are so many details and revelations that it took me some time to sort them out And while my mind is working overtime she throws in a twist or two for good measureIn the end is Melina lucky or unlucky?Well she lives So that's lucky right? LOLBut in all seriousness I think her sharp wit and maybe a little luck win out especially given what she was up againstI really enjoyed this story The pace was steady throughout and the direction of the plot was unexpected and unpredictable The perfect kind of detective story If you love this genre as much as me this is one worth checking outFor reviews visit An ARC was received for an honest review
