Let me start by saying, I was so excited to read this book and was jumping up and down that I was able to review this for the blog tour hosted by Enticing Journey Book Promotions. It probably isn’t the reason you think either! I am obsessed with Israeli Special Forces, Krav Maga and Mossad. I believe there is a hierarchy of military guys you date, more like you should work your way up the level of crazy and dedication. I support 100% the U.S. Military, kind of have to as I am married to a Marine and our daughter is Army Reserve. I support them regardless. I also believe that after you date a Marine the only step up is Israeli SF! I know I am crazy, my husband and friends laugh at me, however in my head this math makes sense more than algebra and calculus. I do want to mention, that I believe every person, especially women should take a self-defense class. It promotes confidence, it’s a great workout, and you never know when you might need the skills. I would encourage you to attend an intro class to Krav Maga. It works with your abilities and your body as it was developed for hand-to-hand combat by the Israeli military. With my rant out of the way, let me give you my insight to this new release.
Tamir is a fantastic Krav Maga instructor and former Israeli Special forces. Not only does he have an incredible body that is swoon worthy, he has the air of mystery and danger. Closed off to anything personal, you would never know the history and life of the man teaching a local Krav Maga class. Tamir has his eye on her, the girl in his class that he knows is hiding a lot. Luckily, with his training, he knows she cannot see how often he stares at her. She is beautiful, in an exotic way, however he doesn’t have time for any woman. Or does he keep telling himself that? Would she understand his past and current job title or run far away?
Emily is a woman concealing her real identity, on the run from a past that is bound to catch up with her. For now, she lives in the city, working, volunteering, and learning Krav Maga. Learning the art of self-defense is important just in case they find her. She cannot seem to look her instructor directly in the eye. What she knows is he is hiding something, as his smile does not quite reach his eyes and passes as polite, just like mine. Something about him though calls to her, can she trust him? Can she trust anyone?
Jill Ramsover, Where Loyalties Lie novel caught me off guard. The only thing I really saw when I was reviewing the blurb for it, was Israeli Special Forces and I knew I had to read it. What I did not expect was the twists and turns. This is a suspenseful book with romance for sure. There were some surprises for me.
I read this book pretty fast, as it grabs your attention and you want to soak it all in. Taking place in NYC and a couple little towns, Jill Ramsover takes you on a journey full of lies, lust, loyalty, and love. I connected with the characters and their feelings, yet I did not know who was more deceitful. When I was towards the middle of the book, is when I was shocked by the revelations of both Tamir and Emily, and even then, their revelations weren’t finished.
Jill Ramsover also addresses a particularly important issue facing not only the United States, but people from around the world. Though she lightly and respectfully touched on this topic, the awareness is there. I really do not want to give it away because you really need to go get this book now!!! This was my first Jill Ramsover read and let me say I am pleasantly surprised!! As a fellow Texan Jill, I will cheers you with Dr. Pepper and a Sweet and Spicy Bacon burger! Now, I will go stalk her social media and I encourage you to do the same!!!!

Jill Ramsower Bio:
Within a year of self-publishing her first book, Jill Ramsower quit her job as an attorney and dedicated her days to churning out romantic adventures. She likes to think of her books as contemporary romance with a touch of fantasy—at its core, her writing is about the connection between two people. Sometimes that connection involves a little magic…
With Jill’s books, you can count on confident heroines, plenty of steamy tension, and deliciously assertive leading men. There are no guarantees in life, but with her books, you know everything will work out in the end. However, a perfect ending would not be nearly as satisfying without a seemingly insurmountable challenge. Jill loves to add plenty of adversity in her stories, creating unforgettably dynamic characters and sneaky plot twists you will never see coming.
Jill is a Texan, born and raised. She manages the hectic social calendars for her three active children and occasionally spends an evening with her dashing husband. Aside from being an author and a mom, she’s a travel junkie and loves to read when she is not lost in her own stories.
