There were so many things going on in Combatting Fear, so many twist and turns and a lot of characters. One of my favorites was Jack, I loved how protective he was of Neve and looked out for her. Neve herself is an interesting character and very focused when she works out. Even though she’s a kindergarten teacher she is fiercely protective of her students. Naturally when a guy hanging out at her school claims to be the father of one of her students, she’s weary. When said guy wants to meet one of her students but is not on the visitor list, her alarms start blaring.
When Micah came on scene I was suspicious of him, but as I got to know him and his story, I felt really bad. I did not like Chelsea from the start and as I learned more about her, I hated her even more. Rowan is just adorable and is a poor kid that is stuck in between two adults. Rowan is a tough little guy regardless and has people that are looking out for him, even if he doesn't realize it.
At the end of Combatting Fear you get a preview of another book she has written called: Inheriting Fear. It looks like a good read and I hope I get a chance to read it.
How far would you go to save a child that wasn’t yours?
Mild-mannered kindergarten teacher Neve Botticelli leads a double life. Thanks to a childhood tragedy and her paranoid father, she’s a trained warrior with extreme survival skills who lives off the grid.
When self-made billionaire Micah Kincaid storms into town in search of his son, Rowan, he’s pushy, entitled, and stands for everything she despises. Micah can’t believe a kindergarten teacher is barring the way to him getting crucial information or even just a glimpse of the boy his cheating ex kidnapped. They share only one thing in common: either will do anything to protect the four-year-old, who they soon discover is being held for ransom by an outlaw motorcycle gang.
But as they work together to get Rowan back, they start to see beyond each other’s masks. Could falling in love be even more dangerous than hunting down deadly criminals?
