Book Review: Get to Me by Lara Van Hulzen

by Iola Goulton

San Diego Police Department Detective Dane Scott meets artist and photographer Aimee Jansenn when his best friend marries her sister, and the sparks fly right from the very first chapter where Dane gives Aimee a toe-curling kiss. The two are brought together again when Aimee witnesses a stabbing and her sketch identifies the culprit as a notorious San Diego drug lord . . . which places her life in danger.

I thought everything about Get to Me was excellent. The characters (edgy and real), the plot (fast-paced), the kissing (steamy without ever being inappropriate for a Christian novel), the Christian message (subtle but a key element), and the writing—some of the lines were simply brilliant. But I’ll let you discover that for yourself. Get to Me isn’t typical Christian fiction, in that it’s a little on the edgy side: imperfect characters with issues, but that’s the kind of Christian fiction I like best.

Get to Me is the second book in the Men of Honor series, although it can easily be read as a standalone novel--although once you’ve finished, you’ll want to download and read the third in the series, Rescue Me, immediately. Rescue Me is the story of Keith, Dane’s brother, and Torie, Aimee’s roommate, and promises to have all the suspense of Get to Me, as well as the hot romance. Lucky me: the author has already sent me a review copy. Guess what I'm doing tonight?

Recommended for romantic suspense fans.

(For those who are interested, I also reviewed the first book in the series, Remember Me. Click here to read my review - recommended for fans of romantic suspense, or amnesia stories.)

  1. OK Iola, you 'got to me'. Especially your reference to a toe-curling kiss'! Uh, I haven't had one of those recently...must work on it.

    1. Not sure how to respond to that, Rita . . .

      Come to Me is a little different to your novels. OK, a lot different.

  2. Iola, great review, and another book to add to my wish list :)
