Ethan Somerton doesn’t do safe or easy. He’s all about the challenge. The risk. In order to rescue one of his agents, Ethan must infiltrate the ruthless Vega cartel. One tiny error—just one—and he’s dead. Which means he needs Natalia Vega. Bright, beautiful, and cut sharper than the most lethal blade, she’s finally reached her breaking point. Now Ethan must find a way to m ...more

I've given this a B at AAR.

I’m always on the look-out for reliably good new authors of romantic suspense, and in Elizabeth Dyer, I think I’ve found one.  Relentless, the second book in her  Somerton Security  series (and her second published novel), is a strongly-written, fast-paced story featuring a team of ex-military types who work for a specialist security firm that also runs off-the-books black-ops for the government.  While that isn’t an especially original concept, Relentless is nonethele

description
Stomach-churning tension. From the very beginning of Ethan and Natalia’s story I knew this was going to be very different from Georgia and Parker’s. Very different. The Vega cartel had taken something precious from both Ethan and Natalia but the whys and wherefores mattered a lot when one was fighting from the outside and the other, very much, from within. If the humour was definitely missing, other than Parker (of course) popping in for some much needed lightheartedness, there was nothing lacki

From the first pages, Relentless had me breathless. I was sucked in and could not put it down. Relentless is full of suspense, intrigue, and passion. Ethan and Natalia have a lot, A LOT, of obstacles in their story. It's twisty and addictive as we follow along and dig deeper into the characters.

Relentless was a well crafted and quickly paced story. It's book two of a series, but can be read on its own. Its exciting and a great book to get carried away in. The banter between the characters was wi

This is my first book by Elizabeth Dyer. Yes, I know, I should have begun with the first book, but c’mon - mafia romance here people. And the surprising part? The mafia member wasn’t anywhere near what {who} I would have guessed.

While I’m no stranger to female lead characters that can be dark as all heck, string, athletic and deadly when you’re not paying attention, this was the first time that I had a character like Natalie Vega. Why did she affect me as much as she did? Well, she is st

***4.5 ‘Promises’ Stars***

I really enjoyed Defenseless and couldn’t wait to get my hands on the next book in the series to see what would happen next with the whole recovery of their friend/brother Will, as well as wanting to spend more time with the characters we’d met along the way. So I was more than happy to dive into Relentless and I thoroughly enjoyed it, even if it had me mentally pulling my hair out at times. I loved how everything played out and can’t wait to get my hands on the next

4.5*s of shimmering hope

This is the second book in the series, and whilst you could read it as a standalone, I do believe you would have a richer experience if you knew Ethan better (who wouldn't?!) Now, I have to confess I am not a huge mob romance fan, but given how excellent Defenceless was, I didn't want to miss out. I made an excellent decision; whilst there are elements of mob life, this concentrates firmly on the

ARC REVIEW

Somerton Security #2, While this is part of a series and part (a miniscule part) goes back to the first book this can be read as a standalone. I'm not much for mafia tropes but this was Ethan's book and that I really wanted to know what happens with that miniscule part connecting this book to the first one. I really liked this one, I love me some strong female characters and you don't get stronger than Natalia. Ethan is a bit of a tarnished white knight and instead of getting the dams

I don’t know what has inspired authors lately/this year to write kick-butt and lethal female leads but Elizabeth Dyer just added herself to the list.

You guys!!!! Relentless is pure suspenseful perfection. It’s full of danger, snark and even super hot sex! This book is exactly what you’re going to want for a HOOOOT summer read!

Ethan Somerton is the epitome of tall, dark and dangerous. He is a pull no punches, get things done, determined man. He’s all the things I dream about when I dream of my future husband. Even if he is a bit stubborn.

Relentless is book 2 in the series and, after the first chapter, it really is a stand alone. I had to think back to what happened in book 1 because it is referenced. However, its not critical to the story of Relentless so it isn't really an issue.

Ethan is the leader of the security team and is carrying a huge burden. He is determined to save a fellow soldier from a drug cartel. First, he has to infiltrate the cartel! Natalia is the niece of the cartel leader. She has been forced into a life she

WOW - so much going on in this and all of it is fantastic!! Right from the beginning this story and these characters pulled me in keeping me on the edge of my seat until the very end. The suspense with the twists and turns in the story is top notch and the romance between Natalia and Ethan is heartwarming with the air of the forbidden. As Natalia and Ethan combine forces to fight the cartel and bring it down you can't help but cheer for them. This is one book everyone should have on their must r ...more

Why are the books where the boss is the main lead always so gut wrenching? Two people on opposite sides basically of the law get into a battle of wills to save/protect someone they care about. Both are self-sacrificing and willing to do whatever it takes. For one that means even going as far as giving up her life for her sister.

Natalia Vega was born into a cartel family. Before her parents were killed it wasn't a bad life. But since their murders by her ruthless Uncle she has had to learn to be

This is the second book in the series and they should be read in order as they continue a story line from the first book.

Relentless is the second entry in Ms. Dyer's Somerton Security series, and as far as I can tell, her second book, overall. I have searched high and low for more books by this author, but alas, she seems to be at the beginning of what I have to believe will be a long and successful career.

Ethan is the head of Somerton Security, a firm that does some work for the government, as well as private security. When he finds out his best friend is still alive and being held by a cartel, he goes all in to

My Readultery Life Review

Since being introduced to Elizabeth Dyer by a friend, I have been hooked with her story telling. Elizabeth has the ability to hook you into her characters and the storyline in each book. This is no different in Relentless, in fact it’s probably my favourite.

From the very beginning of our main characters, Ethan and Natalia, story I know this was going to be awesome. While it is the second instalment to her Somerton Security series, it is very different from the first book

I’ve been craving a romantic suspense for a while now and let me tell you, this totally did it for me. The characters were great, the story had me hooked and it that great nail biting anticipation I love.


I loved Ethan in Defenseless, so getting his full story is something I’ve really been looking forward to. He lived up to all of my expectations. Loyal, a little broody and a lot sexy. He’s the problem solver, the care taker, a no nonsense leader. He also has a soft spot for the people he cares

I honestly cannot count how many times my heart would race, my breath would catch, and I was in a state of WOW while reading this one. I thought Defenseless was a fantastic book (and it still is) but I have to say, Relentless made this series even better.
There is just so much dynamic with this story-line and Elizabeth Dyer does not disappoint. I also love how the dual POVs

I first discovered Ms. Dyer with Defenseless and knew I had found a new author that will always be a one click.

The author continues that one click method with Relentless. This is book 2 in the Somerton Security series and tells Ethan’s story.

I think when an author steps out of the “norm” of portraying a character, especially a female, he/she has to make it “real” and Ms. Dyer did that with Natalia. Natalia was such a strong, loyal and determined woman who gave Ethan a run for his money!

Relentless is the second in the Somerton Security series. If you are considering this series I would say read book 1. This can be read as a stand a lone novel several time the different characters reference events that happened in the first book.

Ethan needs to rescue an agent, no slips allowed, and needed Natalie’s help. For her could it be away out, she had become ruthless, hard, could she change. The big question to her, and his plan was trust, something unknown to her. A dangerous game they had to play , life or death at stake.

I was immediately attracted by the cover at the top we see a man in a suit tie and down a woman running in the street. I thank Netgalley for this partnership.

It all starts when Ethan has to infiltrate the vega cartel to rescue one of his agents. And for that he will get closer to Natalia.

A second volume filled with suspense and twists with a captivating story and endearing characters.

After reading – and loving – Defenseless, the first book in the Somerton Security series, I was eagerly waiting for the next book. Relentless does not disappoint.

Natalia Vega is living a nightmare. She finds herself being manipulated into working for her uncle, a dangerous man involved with drug cartels. She believes she has been ruined by this life. There is no escape for her, and the best she can do is try to save her younger sister from the same life.

LOVED this book!!!! It's the perfect blend of romance and suspense and wrapped in a compelling story that hooked me from the very first page. Ethan learned that his friend, who he had thought dead, was actually alive and a prisoner of a cartel, but had no idea where he was. Because of this, he and his team devised a plan for him to infiltrate the cartel and use that to find him.

I received a copy of this e-book and am voluntarily leaving an honest opinion.

Natalia wonders if each day will be her last. Her only goal is to keep her sister and herself alive. Her Uncle Hernen is part of the Vega Cartel and power hungry, so power hungry he killed her parents so he could inherit his role. He is a brutal man.

Natalia and her sister Anna Marie just want a normal life. They want to do what all young people do; go to college, move out into their own apartment, be with friends etc.
