REVIEW: TAG by Shari J. Ryan


What if your family had a big secret . . . a life changing secret. My dad, the bigwig CIA agent, was always on the run, whether he was being chased or doing the chasing. I missed him. Then my mom passed away, and my sister was murdered. I turned my solitude to strength because the alternative was too bleak.

But my luck seemed to turn: I met Tango. And while I want him more than I’ve ever wanted anything in my twenty-two years, danger lurks around every corner and I simply can’t take the chance of it finding me. But his tattoos, his smell, his darkness, and his body— that marine has taken over my every thought. But, what if he too isn’t what I think? A ticking time bomb isn’t going to leave me much time to waver. Even the bravest person can be in need of a miracle.

Before she was gone, my mom warned me to know everyone and trust no one. But what was I supposed to do when I found out I am the one not to be trusted? Turns out, I was always the bait in this conspiracy.

In author Shari J. Ryan’s gripping novel, TAG, the canyons hold secrets, the waterfalls provide safety, and romance has a pesky way of showing up when you are sweaty and dirty and least expect it.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

***ARC given in exchange for an HONEST review***

This was a good book that grabbed me from the beginning. But it didn't hold my interest the whole time. I think it had a lot of potential though and maybe needed to be developed a bit more. BUT there was a great plot.

Cali is one tough chick. After seeing her sister murdered she vows to find her killer and take care of him herself. But until then she stays on the run because of her dads past in the CIA and the enemies he has made. Then Tango enters the picture when he is sent to be her bodyguard. Cali doesn't need a babysitter but things between her and Tango are electric.

Tango hasn't had an easy past few years either and Cali is unexpected. Tango and Cali are drawn to each other but Cali doesn't trust anyone. No one is safe and she has good reason to feel that way. There are a lot of twists and turns and at times I lost interest, but then next thing I knew, I was pulled back in. Full of suspense and some steam. This is overall a good read.
