Sabrina “Rina” Eckhart was going to fulfill her Uncle Walter’s dream of discovering silver in the mines he had left for her in his Will. Though getting to the mines was troublesome especially when accidents on her life started to become more frequent. She didn’t want to admit needing help but with Alex by her side she felt safer, just maybe not her heart.
Alex Justice wasn’t into life long commitments which worked for him but with every minute he stayed around Rina he saw himself staying a little bit longer. The task at staying beside Rina was no hardship but it kept getting difficult as accidents kept happening around her. Alex would protect Rina with his life.
Going into Against the Odds I knew that this was the seventh book of the series Raines of Wind Canyon. I had read Kat Martin before and wanted to try more from her which lead me to the series. I was impressed with the book. There was suspense, romance, betrayal, love, passion, and good twist throughout the story.
I read the book quickly as it was a very fast pace book with non stop scenes between Rina and Alex. I loved their dynamic between them as she was a dreamer and Alex was a practical and hard man, they pushed each other further. There was also Rebecca and Joe who were another story that collided with Rina and Alex’s. Martin does a good job at drifting through the characters and different scenes with the various characters.
Since I already knew this was an on going series I knew I would be walking in on characters and plots that were already in the process. Against the Odds is easy to follow and you are drawn into the plot easily and stay with the danger at every step. Not to mention the mystery that revolves around the book on who is the one behind all the accidents. I was surprised by the outcome. You know only a portion but there are more villains on the side. You don’t know everything until the last couple of pages which gives us a new twist right at the end. After reading the book I found myself intrigued to find the others, of course after the giant stack of books I have to read, and compare if they are all suspenseful as the seventh book.
