Review: Tall, Silent and Lethal by R.L. Mathewson

By R.L. Mathewson

Reviewed by Phoenix Andrews, 5 out of 5

Tall, Silent and Lethal by R.L. Mathewson was a book worthy of the New York Times Best Selling Author caption on the cover. Christofer, the hero, had the tragic backstory, ripped abs and big heart required of the most elite book boyfriends. Cloe, the heroine, was smart and strong but not a Mary Sue character. Cloe is scarred and prone to panic attacks which fit her backstory perfectly. 

Though this book is part of a series it reads wonderfully as a standalone. This isn't a compilation of sex scenes strung together to form a barely there plot like we're seeing with a lot of romance books today. Tall, Silent and Lethal is a well-edited, fully developed book with evolving characters and a complete story arc. This isn't fluff or poorly camouflaged literary porn. This is a brave-the-bathtub-with-your-kindle and function on three hours of sleep the next day because you couldn't stop reading kind of book. 

The suspense and villain were perfectly balanced with the sexual chemistry of the main characters and the evolution of their romantic relationship. I've read other books by this author and R.L. Mathewson never disappoints.
