Book review: Relentless by Winter Austin

This week I am reviewing Relentless by Winter Austin published by Crimson Romance. Her website is

ABOUT THE BOOK (excert taken from publisher’s webpage at

Dallas homicide detective Remy LeBeau trusts no one. He hides from a past that could kill him and anyone involved with him. What he’s not prepared for is the return of an elusive serial killer . . . and an unwanted desire to protect a witness at all costs.

Professional barrel racer Cody Lewis’s dream of being top in the nation is within reach until she discovers a murdered woman in her horse trailer. The event pulls her into the sickening world of the Rodeo Sweethearts serial killer—a madman who terrorized Dallas’s rodeo circuit five years prior and is now back for more. But what’s worse is that Cody fits the profile of the Rodeo Sweetheart victims. . .

As Remy dives into the investigation, he uncovers secrets of a botched investigation and a tight-lipped boss, while attracting unwanted attention from the killer. Battling his partner, his attraction to Cody, and the demons of his past, catching the killer could cost Remy everything. Even Cody’s life.

My thoughts:

This is a griping Romantic suspense. Cody, the heroine, is a tenacious and feisty woman. Remy, the hero, is a suave homicide dective. Together the sparks fly. Cody has found a dead woman in her horse trailer-who has similar coloring to her. There’s a serial killer haunting the rodeo and Cody could be next.

Remy is reserved because of his past and doesn’t show his true emotions easily. Cody is determined to win the rodeo putting aside her fears of the killer, etc.

Austin does a wonderful job creating suspense and bringing in clues, but still make you wonder who did it. There are twists and turns, but well-thought out which will leave you craving more.

End the end I still had questions and wanted to see more development of Cody & Remy’s romance. However, I believe this is the first book and will look for the sequel. I recommend this book to anyone who loves romantic suspense/murder mysteries.

I was given a copy of Relentless from the Author in exchange for an honest review.
