e-ARC Review: Born to Die by Winter Austin

Born to Die
Trouble’s on the run in rural Eider, Iowa, and Deputy Cassy Rivers’s heart is in the line of fire. Two years ago, she barely escaped a harrowing experience at the hands of a maniac—and not without scars. Now a series of random robberies leads to the brutal death of a fellow officer, and she must put her trust in the one man who broke her heart.

FBI agent Boyce Hunt knows commitment isn’t for men with pasts like his. He left Cassy once to protect her from the blackmail and manipulation he faces from his mother’s criminal enterprise. But when they reluctantly partner up to capture the modern Bonnie and Clyde terrorizing McIntire County, their attraction flames to life once more, pulling Boyce between two loyalties.

Will they risk their hearts again, even if it means losing everything?

*I was provided an e-Arc by Corvisiero Literary Agency via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.

You had me at ‘Bonnie and Clyde’. Also the fact that from reading the synopsis, I got Into the Woods feels, which made my favorites shelf not too long ago.

Born to Die is the second book in a crime mystery novel series and while it’s not necessary to read the first book, as I hadn’t, it may come with less confusion if you do. Due to jumping straight into this second book, I felt our main character’s past had not been explained thoroughly to get a good idea of what happened so when I found out there was a story before this one in the perspective of the MC’s sister then it all made sense.

As I read, I found myself relating to Cassy in many ways. But as usual, I was more interested in the action than the romance. Although it was a bit slow paced, I enjoyed the way the events played out through to the end. I was able to get an idea of who the suspects were before the characters did, but I felt that their situation was really quite realistic. I was also interested in some of the less important characters and was sad to see they didn’t have such big parts, though I know for good reason.

In conclusion, I enjoyed the book enough to read it in less than a week and for me, that’s good considering it was an ebook because this format takes me ages. I would recommend this if you’re looking for a light thriller and a fast read!

Thanks, again, to Corvisiero Literary Agency for giving me the chance to read and thanks for reading!
