Product Description

✰✰✰ Adult, stand-alone, romantic suspense novel. ✰✰✰

Jules Donovan has been in and out of unsavory foster homes and repulsive motels her entire life. She’s known nothing but loss, abandonment, crime, and pain. Now that she's aged out of the system, she can’t remember ever having dreams for her future because she’s constantly fighting for daily survival.

When she meets the Riley brothers, there’s something about them that draws her in. She’s never let her guard down, but Dante and Holden make her feel valuable, like she actually matters. And for the first time in her life, she senses something she’s never experienced before—protection.

But can these mysterious brothers keep her safe from the dark monsters that lie in wait, ready for their final revenge? And how in the hell does older brother Dante know so much about her anyway?

Unbeknownst to her, things have been set in motion ever since she was ripped from her mother’s womb and, as each jagged piece of her life unfolds, she will begin to wonder, who’s really in charge of her fate?

**TRIGGER WARNING...this novel contains non-explicit scenes of abuse. There is strong language throughout. Relinquished intended for mature readers**

This is the first book of ms Hunters that I have read, and it's a pretty good suspense novel.

Our main protagonist is Jules, and boy is she a survivor, a tough cookie who is determined to stand on her own two feet. A product of the foster system, Jules has never had anything, and Lady Luck has been ignoring her most her life, but still she picks herself up and starts again, I loved this about her, it must be very hard to have nothing or nobody that gives a dam whether you wake up tomorrow, to not trust kindness from strangers nor believe that the system is there to protect you... And she has valid reasons for feeling like this, she's been let down in the worst way.

Now I know that this is a work of fiction but unfortunately you read about the sorts of things done to Jules in the papers all the time, and Ms Hunter has made Jules so lifelike in her writing.

I felt every emotion, disappointment and triumph that Jules goes through.

Jules has little trust in men, but there's a certain guy who is determined to break down the barriers to her heart, Holden is the epitome of the best book boyfriend ... Handsome, caring, compassionate and patient. She has slowly let him in, and when we think that things are going smoothly, Holden's brother Dante decides to set his sights on Jude?

Now Dante is a mystery, I could not work out what was going on with him, and you don't really find out for a long while.

There are a lot of hidden agendas going on within this book. Some things I got straight away, but others, you are kept guessing until the final puzzle piece is revealed in the last 1/4 of the book, I was surprised on the truth, so Ms Hunter did well keeping me guessing throughout the book.

Relinquished review- A Must Read
I just finished Relinquished by K.A. Hunter and I could not hurry fast enough to write my review. There are very few authors that could make me feel like I am part of the book. Hunter did not disappoint, I was a emotional wreck.
In Relinquished, Jules Donovan is a tough woman who had to be. With a tortured past and a childhood of being moved from one foster home to another, she always had the feeling of being watched. She called a bug infested motel home and took a job at a dive bar and that is where she meets Dante and Holden, the Riley brothers. A connection is made and for Jules, who never knew what it felt like to be loved or trusting anyone but herself. Finally, knows what it feels like to feel protected.
Dante, has a jerkiness about him that confused me. I literally wanted to sucker punch him ( he is big, so that would be the only way I could get a hit in) or give him a big kiss and hug. Why did he seem to know more about Jules and want to keep it a secret ?
Holden, I swoon just typing his name. I could feel his love radiate through every page that it sent goosebumps to my skin. His desire for affection or actual love making made me tremble and elevated my heart rate. His passion and love was perfectly written. Holden would do anything to protect the one he loves.

"Love isn't something to regret, Jules. Anything in life can destroy you, but I'd rather be so deeply affected by someone that I'm willing to fight against all odds for her than never experience it." 

Relinquish is a romance suspense, K. A. Hunter's writing is so good that she did not have to use uncomfortable provocative words to get the emotions across for the barely written love making. You could feel the passion and love with just the hand holding or the lightly brushing the hair off the face. The suspense written in the book had me feeling like I was in the room looking back and forth between characters and found myself becoming into protective mode. 

I could shout out loud... that this passion of writing is what I look forward too and  love in a book or a writer. I first felt this kind of writing in a T.K. Leigh book and I yearn for it in every read. 
K.A. Hunter, I look forward to your next book and pray that it is part of the Riley brothers saga.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pulled in this Compelling read July 22 2015
By Nichele. Everyday Amazon Shopper. - Published on

You know those books that after you're finished reading, it's ALL you can think about once it's over? Reeling in all the emotions and amazing characters. Relinquished is that book I was thinking about days after I finished it.

What an outstanding, compelling book full of angst and packed of mystery. Which is my favorite type of read.

Jules, sweet Holden, and HOT Dante were amazing throughout this story. I almost thought it would turn into a love triangle with how Dante acted towards Jules and Holdens relationship, but it never did.

All throughout the story, I felt so bad for Jules. No body should ever have to go through things like she did, and I'm grateful for Holden for coming into her life when he did and help her build up that trust, and self confidence once again. It was a beautiful relationship to read.

Of course there's something that happens and you're left feeling so empty, like, what the heck just happened? There's no way that just happened! But the mystery to the story is what kept my attention and right on the tip of my toes until the very last page.

I loved and devoured this book and I can't wait to read more of K.A. Hunter's stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5++++ stars!!!! July 13 2015

****Received and ARC in exchange for an honest review****
5++++ stars!!!!
This story has it all...drama, suspense, angst, love, hate...I absolutely LOVED it!!! The author wrote this under a pen name and it is unlike any of her other books (which are just as good but in a different way)! I really don't think I have read another book like this. You will feel for Jules and all she has been through and rooting for her throughout the whole book! Holden, well, I just fell in love with him! He truly is a great guy with a good heart who just wants to protect Jules! Dante, you will hate to like him, but he grows in you once you figure out what he is all about. You may just even fall in love with him too! This story has twists and turns you probably won't see coming. I't even know what else to say except that it is definitely one of my favorite books so far this year and for those of you who have yet to read it...I am JEALOUS! This is one of those books that you wish you could go back and read again for the first time!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's heartwarming, gut wrenching, addictive ~ Absolute perfection! July 13 2015
By Tammy - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
You haven't lost anything if you've never had it. Life started a downward spiral the moment Jules, the main character, was born. The foster care system did nothing more than destroy her body and soul. The story took me on an emotional ride that I had no desire to abandon. I fell in love with the story the moment I started the book. I felt as if I was standing in front of the mirror with her. I could feel the grime on my skin, smell the mold and the stench of the bathroom as she stood in the cheap motel during the opening scene. KA Hunter took me into the book, straight down the rabbit hole and I can honestly say it has become my new favorite. One of the things that sucked me in was the incredible storyline. Not once was I able to figure out what was going to happen next. Relinquished is a heartwarming love story full of suspense and angst with multiple dynamic characters. I absolutely loved it from the first page to the last. I was left wanting more.

The brothers, Holden and Dante were my ying-yang. You have Holden who is ruled by his heart and Dante his mind. Together they can conquer anything, but wait until Jules comes into their lives. Will they be able to save her or will she destroy them? Holden made my toes curl (no joke) and Dante I wanted to throat punch a few times.

Will Jules know what it is to find peace? Can she trust someone without being betrayed? Will she ever find love?

Favorite quotes:

"Love isn't something to regret, Jules. Anything in life can destroy you, but I'd rather be so deeply affected by someone that I'm willing to fight against all odds for her than never experience it."

"Everyone has scars that tell a story. Even though they don't define who you are, yours tell me that you're not a victim, you're a survivor."

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic romantic suspense thriller! Jaw-dropping, action-filled plot! July 20 2015
By Audrey Harte - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My mouth is still hanging open after finishing this epic romantic suspense thriller! From the very beginning of this story, I was on the edge of my seat and could imagine the horror that Jules went through as she battled to survive the foster care system and reach adulthood. The detailed descriptions of the f'ed up life that Jules leads made my heart hurt for her. I found myself cheering her on through the entire book, hoping that she would eventually find a way out of her cursed existence and be able to enjoy a better life. I loved Holden and Dante, the two brothers who come into Jules' life and turn it upside down. There were so many twists and turns through this gritty tale that kept me guessing and made my heart stop more than once! I can't recommend this book enough! Such an amazing read!
