My rating 5+ out of 5 stars.

Now, if like me, you have read the books in order Dubiosity, Disillusioned and now Distorted, I hope you are as rocked about them as I am!  Distorted really seemed to cap off the series when a young socialite woman becomes a victim of human trafficking.  Not only that but Mallory Baldwin knows her parents were killed the same night she was abducted.  Now, a year later, with what sounds like a small arms war outside the compound where she is held captive enter Navy SEAL Tennyson Walker and other members of the team trying to take down a drug and arms dealer.  Or did they?

Now, two years later, Mallory has been through some therapy and written a book in hopes of helping other victims become victors.  When she is about to go on tour, threats begin to surface.  Therefore, a bodyguard is hired to make sure nothing happens to Mallory.  Grant is the man setting up the PR tour and Tennyson knows he needs more help to fight off the cartel he thought was destroyed.

Both Mallory and Tennyson have broken hearts and souls from issues they must face while trying to put their lives back together.  As the threats and body count starts to rise, it is time to bring in yet another guard, but Mallory just can’t seem to feel safe with anyone other than Tennyson.  He has to tell her about his past that directly affects her.  He might even let her know about a past incident that broke his heart.

What readers will enjoy is the budding romance between Tennyson and Mallory as well as the action, adventure and how a couple of the characters learn that to live is to trust and lean on the Lord.  While it sounds easy to some of the characters, others will learn it is a slow process that takes courage while placing one foot before the other.  I cannot recommend these three stories highly enough as they are so far the best of the best of what I have read to date in 2017!
