About the Book


Title: Brooke Series: The Metcalfes #4 Author: Ronie Kendig Publisher: Task Force Press Release Date: February 6, 2023 Genre: Clean with faith elements, Romantic Suspense

Prioritizing career over family cost Brooke Metcalfe Mulroney everything—her relationship with her siblings, her marriage, her children. Written off by her family, she delves deeper into her work. Until a life-altering moment offers a chance at something she didn’t know she wanted—redemption. But her self-centered ways nip at her heels as she goes on the lam to do what she knows is right.

Former Special Forces operator and founder of MiLE, Cord Taggart wages war on human trafficking by taking the violence to the wicked, determined to never again let an innocent die because he did nothing. But maybe he’s bitten off more than he can chew this time as he works to track down New York City high-powered attorney Brooke Metcalfe, who is MIA. Then there’s her brothers who have threatened to chase him into the afterlife should he fail. Tricky are the hours as Cord negotiates many battles: freeing the captives, demolishing the Trench that has made millions off the skin-trade industry, and his growing, deep-rooted feelings for the bombshell in her highfalutin tower. Brooke must put her life—and heart—in the hands of the thick-skulled operator.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from JustRead Tours. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with FTC guidelines.

Brooke is the fourth and final book in Ronie Kendig’s The Metcalfes series. The previous three books have led to this one, where Brooke finds herself the victim of a trafficking ring.

As you can imagine, this book is not a light read. The whole series has covered the intense topic of human trafficking. And Cord, the male main character in this book, has worked with the Metcalfes over the whole series to combat it as the CEO of a trafficking rescue organization. Now he has to save Brooke, for whom he also has feelings.

This story takes us overseas where Brooke is attempting to save two kidnapped children only to be kidnapped herself. We get to see the Metcalfe men join up with Cord in an attempt to save her, which is a fun part of this book, and series. It’s a page-turning story, too. But it can be difficult to read at times because of the topic. Cord is amazing and it was sweet to watch his and Brooke’s relationship grow in the middle of horrific circumstances.

I like that this series brings awareness to the very real problem of trafficking. It’s well-written with wonderful characters. While the topic is hard, the stories have you rooting for justice and a happy ending. And, I highly recommend them.
