Blog Tour : Against Me ( Cedar Tree #3 ) by Freya Barker @freya_barker

Patience has always been Caleb Whitetail's strength. Quiet and unassuming is what you see with the GFI investigator, but the blood boils hot right under the surface. He kept his distance for years only to see the woman who has held his attention almost lose her life not just once, but twice. He is done standing in the shadows.

Katie Acker, once a tough and athletic security specialist now struggles daily to walk. The closest to family she has are her colleagues at GFI. Especially the man who saved her life and always has her back. So when she unwittingly becomes the focus of a Mexican cartel, it’s no big surprise she finds him right by her side. 

With the combustive change in their deepening bond, Katie and Caleb do not see the oncoming danger - until it surrounds them.

Freya has created a cast of characters that I can't get enough of. While each story is centered around two awesome people she is weaving stories in the backdrop like a seamstress. There is always something else going on behind the scenes that keeps you guessing. This installment was the love story of Caleb and Katie and was 4 yrs in the making. Caleb fell hard and watched Katie from the sidelines. He saw her almost taken from him before he could make his move and decided enough time had been wasted. So through an intense time these two grew closer and Katie quickly realized that this was a man that would lay his life down for her while at the same time he believed with his entire heart that she was just as strong and resilient to bounce back from her accident and stand right by his side. 

I loved his no nonsense way of throwing caution to the wind .. not wasting anymore time. While this book was also very much a thrilling suspense I still found so much beauty in their love story. In the true Freya Barker magic seamstress way she laid the foundation for more stories.. wetting my appetite for all of these interesting characters. I want Joe and Naomi now. Then I want Neils own funny but maybe surprising story. hes got some hidden desires and needs a sweet shy girl to bring those protective and bossy desires out. Then the sexy Malachi .. I want his story so much. Beth and Clint?? Like Freya get busy. I'm hooked.

Freya Barker has always loved being creative. From an early age on she danced and sang, doodled, created, cooked, baked, quilted and crafted. Her latest creative outlets were influenced by an ever-present love for reading. First through blogging, then cover art and design, and finally writing.

Born and raised in the Netherlands, she packed her two toddlers, and eight suitcases filled with toys to move to Canada. No stranger to new beginnings, she thrives on them.

With the kids grown and out in the world, Freya is at the ‘prime’ of her life. The body might be a bit ramshackle, but the spirit is high and as adventurous as ever. Something you may see reflected here and there in some of her heroines.... none of who will likely be wilting flowers.

Freya craved reading about 'real' people, those who are perhaps less than perfect, but just as deserving of romance, hot monkey sex and some thrills and chills in their lives – So she decided to write about them.
