Stronger Than You Know: A Novel (The McKenzies of Ridge Trail Book 2) Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
Kennedy Brooks has spent years learning how to protect herself, and empowering other women to do the same. Still, there are some hazards that can’t be predicted. That includes Reyes McKenzie, who owns her local gym. Strong, capable, and watchful, he seems like the one man who might understand her past. For once, Kennedy is tempted to let her guard down—something she’s vowed never to do.
The moment petite, fiercely determined Kennedy walked into his gym, Reyes knew that she carried secrets. What he didn’t expect was that she could tell the same about him. When trouble tracks her down, she turns to Reyes, unleashing a maelstrom of protective instinct and mutual desire. But will her need for him end when the danger does, or will they take the ultimate risk—on each other?

What Kennedy doesn’t know is that Reyes and his family are secretly trying to break up sex trafficking rings. He thinks she is a strong person as he listens to her story about her past and what she is doing to stop others from falling into the cycle. Reyes doesn’t mention to her at first what his family is up to, but it doesn’t take long for her to figure out that the gym is only a front for what they do. And it turns out that there is indeed someone after Kennedy. Reyes will do whatever it takes to protect her as well as a friend of Kennedy’s named Jodi who was also once kidnapped and forced into sex trafficking. Like Kennedy, Jodi escaped, but she is a loner who operates under the radar while she tries to take down the bad guys. But it appears that there is a bullseye on Jodi, as there is Kennedy. Reyes and his family will have to pull all their resources together to take out the perps.
Things get tense in STRONGER THAN YOU KNOW, the second book in Lori Foster’s The McKenzies of Ridge Trail. The McKenzie family are rebels who operate under the radar in their quest to rid the area of sex trafficking rings. Reyes had encountered Kennedy at his gym and knew about her past due to the book. He has also had more than a passing interest in her from afar. Now Kennedy is under Reyes’s roof—and their mutual attraction soon explodes into passion. But first things first…they need to figure out who is trying to kidnap—and probably kill—her, and flush them out. In STRONGER THAN YOU KNOW, there is plenty of suspense and action, with some sensual heat in the bedroom between Kennedy and Reyes. Their attraction has been simmering for a while, but now they get to act upon it. Once Kennedy is safe, what happens to our lovers’ relationship?
If you love heart racing action and the good guys winning the battle, don’t miss STRONGER THAN YOU KNOW. Kennedy and Reyes are endearing and perfect for each other. In the meantime, get ready for the final book in the series, WATCHING OVER YOU, out in late December 2021.
This is a great story but I am really looking forward to Madison's story in book 3 and keeping up with her brothers and of course Chimera and the kitties.
Reyes McKenzie works with his family to go after sex traffickers. Not only does the family try to ferret out the scum they help victims with lawyers, jobs and financial help to get the victims back on their feet. Owning a gym in the "not the best neighborhood" part of town is good cover as well as a great place to overhear interesting information. Reyes was attracted to Kennedy from the first time he saw her at the gym. His instincts told him she was hiding something. When she called and asked for his help Reyes rushed to her side. Keeping Kennedy safe is his top priority. Falling in love with her was quite unexpected.
Stronger Than You Know by Lori Foster is the second book in her McKenzies of Ridge Trail series. I found this book to be an edge-of-your-seat thriller from the get-go. It starts out immediately with a dangerous action scene situation and the storyline is full of action and suspense from there. Kennedy and Reyes appear at first to be an unlikely couple but Kennedy's bravery and Reyes' devotion seal the deal for the two of them. This series deals with the topic of sex trafficking, a tough topic. I applaud Ms. Foster for directing attention to this evil. I totally enjoyed the story and look forward to the next book in the series, Watching Over You. This is little sister Madison McKenzie and police detective Crosby Albertson's story.
