NEW RELEASE REVIEW – Hit & Run (PASS #1) by Freya Barker


Title: Hit & Run
Pass Series #1
Author: Freya Barker

Genre: Contemporary Romance/ Romantic Suspense
Release Date: September 16, 2019

Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

Returning home to Grand Junction would not have been Rosie Perkins’ first choice, but with her mother no longer able to take care of herself, it’s the only one she has. As is working the night shift at a local hotel to bring in a much-needed income.
Rosie juggles to keep all the pieces of her life together and has no room to add anything more. One morning after a long shift, when she witnesses a hotel guest crash into a dumpster, her careful control starts to unravel.
Security specialist, Jake Hutchinson, has his hands full protecting the arrogant lead actor of a movie being filmed in town. Since the production company and crew arrived at the hotel, the entitled star has been nothing but trouble.
The only thing that can improve his mood is the occasional nightly glimpse of the redheaded housekeeper.
Until he finds himself trapped between desire and duty.

Freya Barker continues to be a ‘one-click’ author for me and I was delighted when I heard she was bringing out a new series based around the stomping ground of some of my favourite characters of hers!

Jake and Rosie at first glance were very different but beneath the veneer there were similarities. Neither did relationships – he’s work driven and too focused on trying to forget things that still haunt him from his time in the services and she’s got family problems that overtake all else – and gods, the issues that Rosie deals with with her mother felt a little too close to home at times…. personally, that’s what makes me loves these books of Freya’s so much – Ms. B does real life issues and believable circumstances incredibly well.

Freya’s characters have snark, fun, humour and a multitude of issues and emotions that you can’t help but relate to, especially if you’re of a certain age as her characters are that bit older and have experienced life in all different ways. The suspense, twists and heat within the books all add to the depth of the stories.

Hit & Run is a really good start to the PASS series and I’m looking forward to more stories and delving deeper into the lives of the other security team members.

If you’ve already read Ms. Barker’s books, you’re going to love this one and if you’re still a Freya virgin, this is a great place to start as it’s a brand new series – and even though previous characters are in the story, you don’t need to have met them previously or know who they are to enjoy the read.

A solid 4* for me.

Freya Barker loves writing about ordinary people with extraordinary stories.
Driven to make her books about ‘real’ people; with characters who are perhaps less than perfect, but just as deserving of romance, thrills and chills, and their own slice of happy.
A recipient of the RomCon “Reader’s Choice” Award for best first book, “Slim To None”, and Finalist for the Kindle Book Award with “From Dust”, Freya has not slowed down.
She continues to add to her rapidly growing collection of published novels as she spins story after story with an endless supply of bruised and dented characters, vying for attention!
