REVIEW TOUR & #GIVEAWAY - Allegiance (The Soul Seekers Series) by Marilee Brothers


Romantic Suspense, New Adult



Transplanted California girl, Melanie Sullivan, vows to stay in Oregon until she nails the killer of her best friend, Dani. Mel’s ability to search a soul for innocence or guilt is a big plus. Her love for Billy the Kid, former Marine and now a detective with the 3 Peaks police department is also a factor in her decision. She’s not quite sure what’s going on with Billy. Has the PTSD from his Middle East deployments returned? 

When a hate crime is committed in 3 Peaks, Mel is recruited by sexy Homeland Security agent, Mick, who requires her soul-reading ability. Mick doesn’t hide his feelings. He’s more than eager to step in if Billy steps out, a complication Mel doesn’t need or want. As she goes undercover, Mel embarks on a dangerous journey, aided by her Uncle Paco and devoted friends. Along the way, she learns a valuable lesson about the power of forgiveness.

Mick fights a grin but continues to ignore me and directs his comment to Billy. “Guess it’s no secret I’d like to spend time with Mel. Just wanted to make sure it’s okay with you.”
I can’t believe this. Twice in one night. First, Darrell wants to know if I’m up for grabs. Now, Mick is asking Billy if I’m on the auction block.

Billy also acts like I’m invisible. “Are you saying you want to date Mel? I’m not sure how I feel about that. She might not be ready to...”

“Stop!” I yell. “Do you see me? I’m right here. In this room. And the two of you are acting like mongrels fighting over a steak bone. Let’s get one thing crystal clear. I’m nobody’s steak bone. All I want is for both of you to leave so I can heat up a bowl of noodles in the microwave, take a shower, and go to bed in a man-free environment. Got it?”

Since they’re both obtuse, I look around the room for something to throw.
Finding no missiles, I settle for the broom propped in the corner of the room. I grab it like a baseball bat and begin swinging it at both men. “Out, get out!”

They both run for the door. Mick is laughing his butt off. Billy keeps looking over his shoulder, saying, “Wait, wait, we need to talk.”

I slam the door and lock it, thankful I’m alone.

4 out of 5 (very good)

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

Such a good read! It’s funny, serious, genuine, and has a few suspenseful moments too! It was quite intriguing and held my attention throughout the story. The little bit of paranormal that was written into this book made for the story line to be a little bit more interesting and different.

The female character has interesting relationship between Billy the Kid and Mick. I’m kind of surprised how things turned out between the three. I can’t say I am displeased with the way it turned out, I’m just kind of surprised. There are some great male brooding scenes and some super hot male angst.

There are a few heavy heart moments.  I won’t go into great detail so as to not ruin your read, but I will say, they are written really well. I think there are some equally good sappy/truly happy moments.

The characters are great. They are written well, have good depth, and are well described. I think overall my favorite character is Paco. You’ll understand once you read the book. He’s just purely the bomb and does whatever is necessary to protect his people.

I feel like I must mention the detail provided when referencing what she is seeing in people’s souls is pretty intense. The author did an absolute excellent job describing the visions she was seeing and thus explaining what the meant. I really enjoyed that part.
