About the Book

Brooke Title: Brooke 
Series: The Metcalfes #4 
Author: Ronie Kendig 
Publisher: Task Force Press 
Release Date: February 6, 2023 
Genre: Clean with faith elements, Romantic Suspense

Prioritizing career over family cost Brooke Metcalfe Mulroney everything—her relationship with her siblings, her marriage, her children. Written off by her family, she delves deeper into her work. Until a life-altering moment offers a chance at something she didn’t know she wanted—redemption. But her self-centered ways nip at her heels as she goes on the lam to do what she knows is right.

Former Special Forces operator and founder of MiLE, Cord Taggart wages war on human trafficking by taking the violence to the wicked, determined to never again let an innocent die because he did nothing. But maybe he’s bitten off more than he can chew this time as he works to track down New York City high-powered attorney Brooke Metcalfe, who is MIA. Then there’s her brothers who have threatened to chase him into the afterlife should he fail. 

Tricky are the hours as Cord negotiates many battles: freeing the captives, demolishing the Trench that has made millions off the skin-trade industry, and his growing, deep-rooted feelings for the bombshell in her highfalutin tower. Brooke must put her life—and heart—in the hands of the thick-skulled operator.

My Review:

Ronie has done it again! This series has been incredibly powerful! She doesn't pussyfoot around the topic of human trafficking. While it's an incredibly difficult topic, it's one that needs to be addressed, especially in the Christian community! She hits it head on.

While this is Brooke's story, it seems like it's almost more Cord's story sometimes. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know them both throughout this story. Brooke, who is trying to do good in the world ends up in hot water. This is where Cord steps in, and wants to save the day, but she slips through his fingers. That's when the clock starts ticking.

I will tell you, this isn't an easy story. How can it be? It has to be raw and hard because that's what life is like for those being trafficked. It's scary and as a reader I was overwhelmed with grief at the evil. There's hope though! Like Cord and so many others, there are people who are fighting this worldwide crime!

As with any Ronie book there are twists and turns until the very end. I loved having Range, Leif, and Canyon in the story. Their dynamic is hilarious which add levity to this heavy story. They give Cord grief (as well as each other) as often as possible. They're also in constant danger.

The ending was a bit abrupt for me and ended in a somewhat "too easy" way. Personally, I would've preferred a more intensity to the overall end. Again, that's just personal preference.

I'm thankful that Ronie isn't afraid to tackle topics like this and does it in a way that should cause all of us to want to do more. And if you've ever wondered which books each of her characters is in, she's got a list at the end of the book!! I LOVE it!!
