Blane Kirk is a Navy SEAL turned high-powered attorney with old money and an even older pedigree. Yes, he plays the field, changing women as often as he changes his ties, but they’re not complaining. He has only two rules – 1) Don’t date employees and 2) Don’t get emotionally involved. Those rules have served him well. He sees no reason to change his ways, until his Runner, an employee in his law firm named Kathleen Turner, does an unexpected face plant in his lap.
Kathleen’s too young, too innocent, and suddenly much too vulnerable when her friend is murdered and Blane knows she could be next. Keeping her alive means keeping her close, but can Blane keep her safe...from him? Kathleen’s like no woman he’s ever met, and protecting her could be the one thing he never expected that would make his life turn on a dime.
TURN ON A DIME – BLANE’S TURN is a companion novel to NO TURNING BACK, Book One in The Kathleen Turner Series.
This book is part of a series but you don’t have to read the previous books to understand what’s going on. Supposedly, it’s told from the perspective of one of the main characters, Blaine, but it’s told in third person. The book goes back in forth through time so you really have to pay attention to keep up with all of the relationship dynamics. The book itself focuses on half-brothers Blane Kirk and Kade Dennon.
At the age of 14, Blane learns that his father had produced another child with another woman that his mother did not know about named Kade. Kade’s mother dies and Blane’s father finds about it but allows the state to take custody of Kade and forces Blane to keep it a secret. Four years later, Blane’s father and mother have past away and Blane rescues his younger half brother Kade from the orphanage that he had been living in all that time. Blane’s family is wealthy so he had a privileged life as opposed to the deprived life that Kade had lived.
The book is mainly focused on 17 years into the future where Blane is working as a partner in a law firm and Kade is a former FBI Cyber Crimes Member that now works as a gun for hire. Blane has asked Kade to help him figure out how a client of the firm is connected to a scheme involving election tampering and electronic voting machines. Of course, there is also a damsel in distress involved whose name is Kathleen Turner just like the actress. This adds an expected layer of sexual tension and intrigue that you would expect from a romantic suspense book. In addition, the constant flashbacks allow you to understand how the relationship between Blane and Kade evolve over the course of 17 years.
Overall, it was a good read. It may have been somewhat predictable at times but it still kept me interested. There is enough murder, mystery, and seduction to make it worth your time.
