Amazing story about second chances, growing as a person, learning to trust, daring to risk your heart for love. This story swept me off my feet; the emotions were intense, the connection and chemistry between Gavin and Lexi were potent and palpable, the secrets they kept from each other bringing suspense to their relationship.
I have liked Gavin since he for the first time showed up with the Linear Tactical series. He is a man of law and order, organization, and straightforwardness, rough around the edges, a person who doesn't trust easily. It is pure karma that the person he falls for is the one with the most secrets to hold.
Lexi had a lot of redemption and forgiveness to earn from her previous appearance with Linear Tactical guys, yet I had no ill feelings towards her. The way she was presented, it was natural for me to feel sympathy towards her and be on the team Lexi from the start.
Redwood runs parallel to the past stories from the LT series yet they are so brilliantly entwined within each other, giving a fresh point of view to the events, that I was mesmerized and hooked throughout the tale. I loved that the LT team with their spouses were present and witnessing the happenings of the developing relationship, and there to support them when things go astray.
I loved how this story pulled me and my mind and feelings into the tale of danger and romance so completely that I forgot the world around me. I devoured the tale at once, I could not put it down and didn't want to leave Oak Creek once it came to the end. If you love romance novels with deep feels, beautiful, meaningful love scenes, a love story that is spiced up with a touch of danger and suspense you are going to adore the Redwood and the Linear Tactical series, I myself, am enamored.
