Tate by Susan May Warren Review

Here’s a book that needs absolutely no introduction, and nor does it’s author. I mean, I just hear the name Susan May Warren and I automatically know there is going to be some hunky hero that brings my heart rate up. Husbands, learn this name. You are going to be compared to all of her characters. Just warning you!!

Tate: The Montana Marshalls - An Inspirational Romantic Suspense Family Series by [Warren, Susan May]

“He was sent here to kill you, wasn’t he?” Glo’s voice emerged in a whisper of horror.

Tate drew in a breath, and even Knox looked away as Tate nodded.

Oh, she knew it. Apparently, she had a type.

The kind of men who didn’t care what trouble—or death—might be waiting for them. Who turned their face to it and charged ahead.

The kind of men who died for what they believed in.

The kind of men who would break her heart.

What will it cost this bodyguard to save the woman he loves?

*Susie writes a delightful story! NYT bestselling author Dee Henderson.*

Susan May Warren is the USA Today best-selling, Christy and RITA award-winning novelist of over 65 novels, including the best-selling Montana Rescue and Montana Fire series.

Bodyguard Tate Marshall, has always been the family troublemaker

Maybe it’s his propensity to get entangled in other people’s problems. Now, he’s in over his head because he’s desperately in love with the woman he’s tasked to protect, the beautiful Gloria, “Glo” Jackson, daughter of US Senator and presidential hopeful Reba Jackson. A member of the country band, the Yankee Belles, Glo was targeted in a recent terrorist attack designed to deter her mother from running, and Tate will do anything to keep her safe. Even if it means letting her go.

Country music artist Glo Jackson isn’t afraid of trouble…

Stubborn and brave, Glo isn’t about to hide from threats, at least the kind that won’t cost her heart. She’s already paid a terrible price for the war on terror, and she refuses to fall for a man who might die, especially because of her. Better to keep him away, even if it means sacrificing her heart.

But when danger threatens them both, what will they sacrifice to keep each other safe?

As the presidential campaign heats up and the threats deepen, so does the attraction between Tate and Glo. But what will it cost Tate to keep her alive? And what will Glo do to keep from losing another man she loves?

The gripping second installment of the Montana Marshalls series.

I’d love to be in Susan May Warren’s mind when she is creating her stories. The way she writes them just sucks you right in and doesn’t let go. How she creates these hunky heroes – Tate is up there on my list of favorites – is just amazing to me. She gets every single detail right, to build the perfect character (and I don’t mean the character is not flawed, I just mean they are perfect to me lol). Somehow her amazing cover team gets just the right guy on the front cover too – pretty well matches what I think Tate looks like. Yeah…I’ll just stop right there for a second while you refer back to the cover and drool a little bit. 

This book is packed with action, right from the get go. You learn so much more about Tate, things I didn’t even expect. But dare I say that Glo’s mom stole the scene a couple of times! I know some of you who have read this are probably cringing right now, but I really think she did. She’s so determined to have things her way, and she’s cunning like a fox. You always have to be careful around her. She didn’t surprise me in the least when she was visitng Glo in the hospital, until she asked Tate a very important question (sorry you’ll have to read to know what I’m talking about!). It was then I could see her wheels turning. Yes…she was up to something. But then throughout the story you do see little glimmers of an actual human being in her. There was almost a teeny bit of vulnerability a time or two as well. Was she my favorite character? Um, no way. BUT, she was the character that surprised me the most. She was the character I found myself talking about the most (I know – strange considering this is a Susan May Warren book and there is a cute hero invovled). But this is how Warren cotinues to be above the rest. She really thinks about each and every character in her stories, and leave nothing unturned. She certainly had my attention here.

I will say this – I really enjoyed getting snippets of Ford before his release. Set the stage quite beautifully if I do say so myself. Don’t be scared – this does not at all take away from Tate’s story. In fact, I think it enhances it. I certainly makes this reader sitting on the edge of her seat waiting for the next release! 

Overall, Tate is every I wanted and more. I have never been disappointed in a Susan May Warren story before, and this is no exception. And after only being two books in, this is hands down my favorite series from her. Get your fans ready girls, you’re going to need them!! I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

“Just remember, bro. You’re not the good news. Jesus is.”

“Heaven sees you, Glo. You don’t need to do anything to get God’s attention. You had it before you were born.”

Susan May Warren

Growing up in Minneapolis and attending the U of MN, I learned to love city life, although I’m a woodsy girl at heart. Or maybe I’m an adventurer — having lived and traveled all over the world, including Siberia Russia as a missionary for eight years. Probably that’s why my characters can’t sit still, and seem to get into one scrape after another — they’re too much like me! I love God, my family, my country, my church, and feel privileged every day to be able to write stories.
