Say You're Sorry by Karen Rose - Blog Tour

Special Agent Gideon Reynolds has tried hard to put his past behind him. He escaped the violence of his cult upbringing when he was just thirteen, and since then routine and discipline have been his way of making sense of the world. But when a petite blonde woman crashes into his life, he begins to realize that a little bit of chaos might not be so bad.
Daisy Dawson has had more than her fair share of pain too – but she’s done being a victim. Daisy’s determined to explore every new experience she can – including getting to know the dark and serious FBI investigator she meets when she fights off a masked attacker one night.
It soon becomes clear that Daisy’s attack was just the beginning. Now the bloodied bodies of young women are showing up all over California, and, as Gideon tries to find the killer, it’s clear that Daisy is in more danger than they ever realised…

My Review

I absolutely loved this book! I can't believe I haven't read any of Karen Rose's work before, but I will be rectifying that after reading this (I have already picked up a couple more of her books since reading Say You're Sorry). Say You're Sorry is a thriller with a touch of romance that I couldn't stop reading.
First of all, Gideon is just an excellent character, he spent many of his childhood years in a cult and is now an FBI agent. He is the perfect balance between strong/brave and troubled/sad. When Daisy is attacked, he is tasked with keeping an eye on her and helping to find the culprit. He believes one of the other victims has a personal link to him. 
Daisy also has her troubles as a recovering alcoholic. However, she is strong and capable of looking after herself. I thought her character had so much depth and I loved how she dealt with things that happened to her. She is far from a victim!
The story is told from both Daisy and Gideon's point of view. There are also chapters from the killers side, which is something I always enjoy in books. These are done brilliantly, the killers thoughts are disturbing as are his actions.
Gideon and Daisy grow close during all of this. Their relationship is deep and intense. Things moving very quickly. I loved how Gideon is able to confide in Daisy in ways he hasn't been able to with anyone else. 
This is the first book in the series, and I am looking forward to reading the rest. I am invested in the characters and story and want to find out what happens next.
