I was so worried the relationship between Nari and Angus in DRIVEN wouldn’t live up to my expectations after three books of building sexual tension. I am happy to report that not only did Rebecca Zanetti meet my expectations, she also knocked them out of the park! Zanetti has been masterfully weaving the romance and the building “is he dead or isn’t he dead” serial killer plot the entirety of this series. It all explodes in an action-packed ride of a romantic suspense novel.
While both Angus and Nari had been central secondary characters in previous books, their book added layers to their attraction outside the physical. Both characters are driven (get it??) in their own ways and mesh well as a couple on so many levels. Their adrenaline-laced relationship is only deepened by the soft, tender, and funny moments Zanetti throws in. Who knew gruff, bossy, monosyllabic Angus would throw out romantic one-liners that would melt my heart?
Of course, the gang is all back. Wolfe is still my favorite comedic relief character, although Roscoe gave him a run for his money; I love that dog! I have no idea where the series will go from here, Zanetti has left herself an open path, but I will follow wherever she leads!
Overall, if you want to start this series from the beginning (which I highly recommend), grab HIDDEN and fall in love with these characters from book one. If you want to jump in with DRIVEN, I support your life choices, and I think you’ll still have a blast! Nari and Angus are easy to root for and Zanetti’s writing shines like always.
