Review: Truth in Pieces by RC Boldt

I've loved seeing RC Boldt's evolution as an author over the years. I swear, I'm constantly astounded by how she's able to surpass whatever it is she's written prior to her newest release. She does seem to be on somewhat of a darker shade of romantic suspense, and I, for one, am not complaining because I'm always up for an author pushing their boundaries and readers like me reaping all the fab rewards with every flip of the page.
Truth in Pieces is the story of Olivia Wright, a university professor whose life as she knew it is upended by the sudden appearance of a man named Nico Alcanzar, leader of a powerful drug cartel whose reputation is well-earned. His presence has a purpose--Nico intends to use Olivia to eliminate a rival, not that he's giving her much of a choice. With all the lies, certain truths are irrefutable: Nico is a criminal and Olivia wants all of him.
With books that fall under the romantic suspense genre, the fewer details given, the better a read it'll be for future readers. After all, part of what makes the reading experience as good as it can be is that thrum of tension and anticipation as to what awaits the characters (and the reader). The blurb for the book merely skims what this title is about, and it's definitely one of my more noteworthy reads for October this year.
Olivia and Nico's story is an extraordinary one, and I think that it's actually best if you go into it blind. Reading a blurb can give you certain expectations as to what sort of story and characters you're going to get. I loved how everything played out and how the twists and turns kept me on my toes. This is a complete standalone, so whether you're familiar with RC Boldt's writing or are new to her, consider Truth in Pieces a must-read. Five stars.
