Knox: The Montana Marshalls Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Can she outrun her past into the arms of a Montana rancher?
Montana rancher Knox Marshall's danger years are behind him. A former bull rider, he now runs the Marshall family ranch, raising champion bucking bulls for the National Professional Bullrider's Expo (NBR-X). But although he's successful and wealthy, at 30, he can't help but wonder if his best years are behind him. His life is stable, expected and…boring.
Kelsey Jones just wants a safe life, a family, a home. Well, at least when she's offstage. Onstage, she's the beautiful rising star of the country trio the Yankee Belles. Onstage, she becomes the person she longs to be, vivacious and confident, not the mess she knows she is inside, the result of a violent attack years earlier. But certainly, the more success she has, the more she outruns her past, success that includes becoming NBR-X's next country act.
Knox and Kelsey's paths collide when an explosion at an NBR-X event traps them in the rubble. Now victims of a random trauma, they have to figure out how to put their lives back together. For Kelsey, it awakens her nightmares, and for Knox, it ignites in him an obsession to find the bomber.
Problem is…someone is after Kelsey, and when her past follows her into Knox's life, threatening his family and legacy, he'll have to choose between saving the people he loves, or becoming the protector he's always longed to be. The exciting ignition of the Montana Marshall series.

From the very beginning, it was easy to see how everything was going to work out. And sometimes that's not a bad thing but there wasn't enough else in the book to make the ride getting there enjoyable.
If you took out the secondary character and all the references to all her other stories, you'd be left with about half the pages (only a slight exaggeration). I enjoy seeing characters appear from other books/story lines, but it was overdone.
Also as the book stands, it was too wordy and could have been written in about 75 less words, in my opinion. How many times do I need to know the one character wore his shirts two sizes too small? Attractions were superficial, plot holes - for example, the security (secondary character) should be fired but that would kill book two. I won't go into more because I don't want to give anything away to someone who doesn't share my opinion.
As from a Christian perspective, it was weak and on the back burner, like an afterthought, just thrown in. One of the things that I loved about this author was the strong Christian content and how her stories move. Neither are like they once were.
If want to read some really good writing, read about the Christiansen Family. It's her best!
Knox and Kelsey, as well as Tate and Glo, are nothing short of power couples, but are a pleasure to get to know on their own. Kudos to Susie May for once again pulling off two couples, and in the space of a shorter novel, no less. I loved the development of both relationships, especially Glo calling Tate all those nicknames and Knox and Kelsey bonding over hockey games and old Western episodes. The former is probably something I'd do to a guy--I especially loved it when Glo called Tate Shakespeare.
But I also loved the individual character development here, and the non-romantic relationships. Kelsey will always stick with me, because Susie gave her some serious trauma without making her a helpless victim. (Seriously, I happened to be reading that part in public and had to be careful not to audibly react). With Kelsey, you understand completely why she's running and exactly why she wants so badly to beat the fear but can't. I saw myself in her--I haven't gone through what she has, but I do have things in my life that I'd rather die than let win, and it was convicting to be reminded that only God can beat the demons for good.
Speaking of, the spiritual and emotional element here is on point in a way I can barely describe. It's subtle, but that actually helps point the reader and characters toward Jesus in a more organic way. When the Marshalls talk about God as their Father and Friend, you know they mean it, and they're in it for the long haul--but you don't feel like they're preachy or perfect. Even though the Marshalls aren't real, I felt like if I could show up at the Triple M, they'd accept me, bumps, bruises, and all--and I could believe God would, too. I'm saved and understand the concept of grace, but I've tried to earn it a million times. These characters help you realize yeah, God really is crazy about you.
I know I said I appreciated a break from the suspense element, but Susie scored there, too. I'm now anxious to know more about Reba Jackson, the Bryant Group, how Tate got mixed up with the Russian mafia (!!!) and all that jazz. I've also always liked when Susie's books lean toward Western, so I enjoyed the rodeo/cowboy element, as well as Knox's love for the ranch, how he had to work through that with Reuben, and so on. The element of the Yankee Belles in general was a favorite--they'd definitely be on my iPod. I want more of the Marshalls, as much as Susie wants to give. I want to know every single one of them like they were my own family. Please, please hurry with Tate!

I only dropped a star because I found the book when searching for Christian romance and God isn’t mentioned that much.
Really looking forward to reading more from this author
I can wait to read Tate's story. I love the way the writer is weaving and carrying through the suspense and intrigue from one story to the next
