Just, whoa. I loved almost everything about this book. I will be glomming the rest of the series, post haste. It's well-written, with good pacing and some truly great dialogue. I don't always love the super possessive dude-protagonists, but Seth Mackey is like, the hottest. He's terrible at verbal communication, manipulative, aggressive, all alphole traits that are awful in real life but smoking hot with this particular character. Only because his p.o.v. makes it obvious that he is so, so awful at interacting with people because he is awkward and socially inept, not actually a mega-jerk. I like both his and Raine's character arcs too. Both of them actually grow over the course of the story, which is always a plus. The story takes place over a very short period of time, but I found the romance to be believable.

Just to be clear, none, absolutely none of Seth's behavior would be acceptable IRL: spying, stalking, grabby hands, lying, physically restraining the lady-protagonist when she wasn't doing what he wanted, and disregarding her "no's" and "wait's" because he was following her non-verbal cues as opposed to her words (verging perilously close to flat-out raping the heroine. Protip: if someone is saying "please wait" or "slow down" stop and/or slow down, even if that person is turned on because involuntary physiological responses are not actually consent). He's a total steamroller. For readers who are uncomfortable with or triggered by that kind of douche-wagon behavior, stay away from this book. ( )

Behind Closed Doors was pretty good. Seth was a little much to take sometimes. He was extremely Alpha and was not always kind to Raine. However, even with all of his idiocy, he truly did care about her. The suspense was exciting and Raine grew enough of a backbone to deal with all the stuff thrown at her. It kept my interest and I want to read the rest of the series now.

Synopsis:
Security expert, Seth Mackay seeks revenge against the man responsible for the murder of his brother, and he will go to any lengths including stalking his target's latest flame, Raine Cameron. What Seth doesn't know is that Raine has her own agenda, but when the two meet, sparks fly and all is forgotten until Raine becomes the object of obsession for a madman...

Review:
Despite the intricate and well-paced plot, this book is not without its flaws. To begin with, the hero is completely obnoxious and domineering. While it is obvious that his rough exterior is merely a façade meant to conceal the insecurities of a man who was neglected as a boy and who has lost the only person he ever loved, I found it difficult to identify with him because this wall never comes down not even at the end when he has supposedly learned to love and trust again. The heroine, however, does grow and change throughout the story and becomes more likeable. As the tale begins, she is annoyingly naïve and a complete doormat but thankfully develops a backbone and begins standing up for herself. I liked the fact that she knew how to put the hero in his place both in and outside of the bedroom.

In terms of the secondary characters, the book has two villains – one completely diabolical and the other quite witty and charming. This is actually one of the few books in which I found myself liking the “bad guy”. Despite his machinations, he has true affection for the heroine and makes the ultimate sacrifice for her (you’ll just have to read it to find out what I mean).

The writing flows and Ms. McKenna definitely knows how to write a love scene. Nevertheless, I found that her descriptions of the various surveillance technologies and techniques were excessive; the role play scenes were irritating and the supernatural overtones out of place. The book is supposedly a romantic suspense and the paranormal aspects detract from the overall reading experience.

Overall, I enjoyed it enough to read the next book in the series, which according to all reports only get better from this point on.

Steamy scene every other chapter or ever couple of pages. Possessive alpha with a seemingly meek, but definite headstrong female.

This is one of my first Romantic-suspense I read. Very sexy and romantic. ( )
