4 stars

I loved Digital Velocity. It was such an intriguing and captivating story that I couldn't put down until I was finished with it, and that left me wanting more. This was my first Reily Garrett book, and I am grateful that I had the opportunity to read a book by her. I cannot wait to see where this series goes from here.

This book is great for many reasons, it's very exciting and has a lot of action. The romance is beautiful and believable, and I thought that the two of them were perfect for each other. The suspense and the mystery keep you on the edge of your seat (well it did with me).

Overall, this was such an exciting story to jump into and if you are a fan of romantic suspense then you will probably enjoy reading this story. I would highly recommend this book.

Reily is a West Coast girl transplanted to the opposite shore. When she’s not working with her dogs, you can find her curled up with a book or writing her next story. Past employment as an ICU nurse, private investigator, and work in the military police has given her countless experiences in a host of different environments to add a real world feel to her fiction.

Over time, and several careers, many incidents have flavored the plots of her stories. Man’s cruelty and ingenuity for torment and torture is boundless, not contained by an infinite imagination. Witnessing the after-effects of a teenager mugged at knifepoint for a pair of tennis shoes, or an elderly woman stabbed repeatedly with a screwdriver for no apparent reason, left an indelible impression that will forever haunt her subconscious. In counterpoint, she has observed a woman stop her vehicle in severe, snowy weather to offer her own winter coat to a stranger, a teenager wearing a threadbare hoodie. Life’s diversities are endless.

Though her kids are her life, writing is Reily’s life after. The one enjoyed after the kids are in bed or after they’re in school and the house is quiet. This is the time she kicks back with laptop and lapdog to give her imagination free rein.

In reading, take pleasure in a mental pause as you root for your favorite hero/heroine and bask in their accomplishments, then share your opinions of them over a coffee with your best friend (even if he’s four-legged). Life is short. Cherish your time.
