Riverbend Road: My Review

Riverbed Road by RaeAnne Thayne

Riverbend Road

About the Book:

Protecting the streets of Haven Point isn't just a job for police officer Wyn Bailey, it's a family tradition. But lately she's found herself wanting more, especially from her boss—and overprotective brother's best friend—sexy chief of police, Cade Emmett. The only problem is getting Cade to view her as more than just a little sister. 

Cade's hands-off approach with Wyn isn't from lack of attraction. But his complicated past has forced him to conceal his desire. When Wyn is harmed in the line of duty, Cade realizes the depth of his feelings, but can he let his guard down long enough to embrace the love he secretly craves?

My Comments:

I enjoyed taking another trip to Haven Point and getting to know Wyn, Cade and their friends.  Like the other Haven Point novels, it not only the relationship between the main couple but also the relationships with others in the town.  The main secondary character in this book is Andrea, a new widow who seems scared of everything--and we find that she had a good reason to be scared.  The climax scene in the book involves her and honestly, it just didn't ring true to me.  Still, the strength of Thayne's writing is her characters, not her plots.  Except for the subplot about Andrea, this is a pretty basic romance that has the expected ending.  Like Thayne's other books, there were no bedroom scenes.

I'd like to thank the publisher for making a review copy available via NetGalley.  I was not obligated to write a positive review.  Grade:  B.
