    One thought on “The Blind”

    1. 2.5 Stars?I skimmed from about the 55% mark to the end. I just couldn't connect to the characters at all. It all felt very one dimensional.A copy was kindly provided by Forever via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

    2. The BlindBook #3 of The Apostles SeriesEvie and Jack's StoryThe Story Behind the Story -- The BlindWhile I was drafting The Blind, I joked around that this book should come with a warning label, something likeWARNING: Strong Woman Ahead!Consider yourself warned. The Blind, another stand-alone romantic thriller in my Apostles Series, belongs wholeheartedly and unabashedly to Special Agent Evie Jimenez, the fiery bombs and weapons specialist for Parker Lord's elite FBI team, the Apostles. The tomb [...]

    3. This was a fascinating book. For one thing, I fell in love with Jack and Evie right away. Always feeling like she has something to prove has made bomb specialist, Evie, go the extra mile, often putting herself in the line of fire in order to save others. That and her mouth have a tendency to get her in trouble as she hates having to back down when caught up in a good case. This time is a little different, however, as the suspect, known as The Angel Bomber, gets a fix on her. He's choosing his vi [...]

    5. I won this book in GoodReads giveaways in exchange for an honest review.This is a pulse pounding thriller mixed with romance. The MC, Evie Jimenez, is a strong heroine who is after a serial bomber. Jack is strong-willed, opinionated, a trifle arrogant at times, and used to being in control. Which is why sparks fly whenever he and Evie get together.The story begins right away with a madman blowing up a woman in public. Evie Jimenez is a bomb specialist who works for the Apostles, an elite FBI tea [...]

    6. Shelley Coriell’s Apostles romantic thriller series is one of my favourites, and it gets better with every entry. Deranged serial killer realistic and twisted enough to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up permanently? Check. Kickass, bomb-diffusing, former-military-and-FBI-reject-turned-Apostle heroine who is strong and confident enough to hold her own in a male-dominated world and yet retains an endearing, inherent femaleness (even if she can’t quite see it)? Double check. Hunk [...]

    7. I'll start by saying that I love love love the Apostles series! I have been anxiously awaiting this book after having read the first two books. I was thrilled to be given an ARC for review from Net Galley. The focus of this book, Evie, was such a great character. She was tough, blunt, forward, and outspoken but somehow still soft, approachable, and feminine. Jack was opinionated and overbearing yet also caring and thoughtful. The two of them together totally complimented each other. Evie brought [...]

    8. A big 5 star for this book. The characters, the settings and of course the storyline are a to be read book. I highly recommend this book by Shelley Coriell. The story is a page turner.This book is part of a series, however, you do not have to read the first two to get into the story.Thanks for a great read Shelley Coriell, one of my favourite reads of the year.

    9. Don't know why this series was so hard to find in the local libraries. It was feature in a magazine that he library distributes on new books, but then I never could find it. There is always a suspense portion with a criminal needing to be captured by The Apostles, and elite FBI Team, and then there is a romance with one of the team. I have found all of the stories enjoyable.

    10. “Scapegrace leaped up. “I am the Killer Supreme! I make murder into an art form!”Skulduggery hit him again and Scapegrace did a little twirl before falling.”― Derek Landy, Playing with Fire“Terrorist bombings, like rampage shootings, are events that maximize the amount of publicity per amount of damage. That’s why people do them, because they know they will set off a media frenzy.” – Steven PinkerThe Apostles. A highly specialized Special Criminal Investigation FBI team, under [...]

    11. The blind started off fast paced and really interesting but very quickly slowed down. The mystery elements in this book weren't unique or original and they really took a backseat to the romance. I don't mind some romance in the books that I've read but I personally don't like it when it feels like the romance is taking over and the mystery/thriller elements that I want most are just in the background. The relationship between Jack and Evie happened fast, as in Insta-love fast. Their Insta-love r [...]

    12. I received this book via NetGalley to give an honest review.This book has just as much action as the other two books, though we deal with different characters. Evie is a bomb specialist who works for the FBI and after being told to keep her nose clean and pretty much stay back from things she gets pulled in to an investigation. There is a man who is killing people by setting them up with explosives and having them go off. Evie is on a race against time to find out who this man is before he kills [...]

    13. In The Blind Shelley Coriell presents a dynamic story that starts quickly and keeps the reader both interested and invested in the characters. Evie Jimenez is a strong character who is the best bomb and weapons specialist among a group of elite FBI agents. In spite of already establishing herself as the best she nonetheless feels the need to continue proving herself. She reluctantly (at first) finds herself working with an equally strong-willed rich businessman, Jack Elliott, in stopping a seria [...]

    14. Pulse pounding thriller with a tough as nails heroine whose after a serial bomber. The author waste no time in throwing you right into story with a madman blowing up a woman in public. Evie Jimenez its a bomb expert. She's diffused them for the military and is now the bomb and weapons expert for the Apostles, an elite FBI team. She's in a bit of hot water with the President over the last job she' was on but when she gets an invitation from billionaire Jack Elliot to come to LA to discuss informa [...]

    15. Quick thoughts:I liked the way the plot layered in the serial killer's identity and although the murders were gruesome, the author didn't exploit the gruesome factor - no horror show detail. I liked the characters in the story although I never warmed up to the heroine - she was just a little too strong. I like strong females butmething didn't work for me.There were times that I felt some normal police follow-up was not included in the plot and at those points the story started feeling weak.Spoil [...]

    16. Another great addition to the Apostles series. Los Angeles has a serial bomber. When Jack realizes that each tableau resembles a painting he owns, he calls Evie, knowing she is the best in the FBI for this. At first she suspects he is involved, but as they investigate, aspects of Jack's past come to light as important in the investigation. One aspect of the series that I really enjoy are the side characters. In this one Freddie turned in to a very likable guy. Of course, Smokey Joe is still arou [...]

    17. The most explosive of the Apostles series, The Blind, is a constant page turner. Once again Shelley has done it! In this suspenseful tale we have Agent Jimenez, a strong willed woman and quite the firecracker teaming up with art expert, Jack Elliot trying to chase after a man who creates art by attaching explosives to woman, thus giving him the title of the Angel Bomber. Time is of the essence and Agent Jimenez is running out of time to stop the killer in his tracks, but not too soon before he m [...]

    18. I was lucky enough to win this book in the giveaway and wanted to start reading it as soon as it arrived. I love a strong female lead in a book and this one did not disappoint! Evie is my kind of agent and I enjoyed Jack as well. I am in school, so it took me longer than normal to finish this one, but it was not for lack of try. I willing lost some sleep to get it finished this week and I would highly recommend the series to anyone looking for a great new author to read. Suspenseful and full of [...]

    19. A very compelling read, with layers and layers of mystery to unravel even if the romance felt a little forced - because it wasn't needed at all to sustain the excellent narrative. Evie Jimenez is an admirably unyielding force in this book to the point where I'd replace the word headstrong with strength, but I wished I could have seen some sort of development that could have broken her further - and then put her together again.

    20. The Blind by Shelley Coriell is the 3rd book in the Apostles series. This book is amazing and awesome and to me the best of the series. I loved the whole series but this one really knocks your socks off. Non stop action and suspense. Evie and Jack bring this book together with a edge of your seat experience. As they team up to catch a serial bomber, strong willed woman with alpha man on the scene. This is a must to read and totally a winner! I was given this book for my honest opinion.

    21. I hate to say it, but this one was a bit weaker than its brethren. The tension just never felt as high, the romantic connection never felt as strong was just missing some oomph. But it was still an entertaining read, and I've very much enjoyed Coriell's blend of romance and thriller with this series.

    22. I haven't read this author before, but I want to read more. This is one of a series and its focus is Evie. Good characterization with a well thought out plot. Suspense as a bomber is being tracked. Recommend.

    23. Fast pace wild ride!Evie is a total bad ass. AND Jack was completely swoon worthy. This story started with a boom and was quite the ride all the way through. The secondary characters also added zip to the story too. Freddie cracked me up. This series and author will stay on my must read list.

    24. My first book by this author. Enjoyable. Sex scenes between hero and heroine not descriptive. But the attraction was there.

    25. I loved Evie! Awesome personality and character. Suspenseful and kept me guessing at all times! Loves it!!

    26. Compelling story with great characters. Hard to put down. Can't wait to read the rest of the series.Got this book for free from First Reads.
