Book & Author Details:

Motive (Office Roulette #2) by Kennedy Layne
Publication date: July 17th 2018
Genres: Romantic Suspense

Motive.jpgThe Office Roulette trilogy continues with an epic battle between blame and forgiveness…

Rye Marshall had it all—wealth, prominence, and the love of his life. But nothing lasts forever, and his perfect world came crashing down around him. When the dust settled, he found himself alone and starting from a clean slate.

Grace Dorrance had made many mistakes in her life, but one stood out above the rest—an epic ending to a complex and passionate relationship. She left her former lover’s life in complete ruins and tried her best never to look back at the wreckage.

Seconds chances are hard to come by, but even more difficult when Grace is arrested for a murder she didn’t commit. This gives Rye the perfect motive to forgive and forget, allowing for new beginnings. Unfortunately, someone is playing a game of office roulette with everyone’s lives.


PSA – please read book 1 before you start on this – it will greatly enhance your enjoyment of the story.

Once again, this isn’t a long book – but that really works in the context of the trio of female protagonists and their individual yet entwined story arcs.

I really enjoy reading their stories.  Grace is stubborn, but watching Rye wear her down against the backdrop of a murder investigation is a great way to while away time curled up on the sofa.

I still have no clear idea who the bad guy (or girl) is though….

Bring on the conclusion!

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
