ARC Review: Beyond Power by Connie Mann

Thank you so much to Sourcebooks Casablanca and Netgalley for letting me read Beyond Power by Connie Mann early! According to Netgalley, this book comes out on September 1st, but according to Goodreads, this book comes out on January 26th, so I’m not 100% sure when it’s actually releasing, but that’s not too big of a deal, because whenever it’s releasing, you should definitely check it out! 

Beyond Power 4/5 Stars

Summary from Goodreads: When your heart’s involved…

If you dare venture beyond Disney’s magic and Miami’s high-rises, you’ll find yourself in Florida’s untamed wilderness. A bush pilot and officer for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, Josh Tanner is one of the tough cops needed to manage these rugged areas. And the minute he finds Delilah Atwood deep in the woods without a good explanation, he knows something is very wrong…

All the stakes are raised…

Delilah barely escaped her ultra-fundamental militia family years ago. Now she’s back to save her sixteen-year-old sister, and no government man is going to stop her. Josh isn’t going to stand by and watch Delilah risk her life, but unless he can get her to trust him, she may end up being the next victim. 

This book was a really fun read! It was the perfect mix of action and adventure, nature and law enforcement, romance and thriller- exactly what I enjoy reading these days! I really liked Josh as a love interest and secondary main character. Delilah was a great main character and the more I read about her and how she grew up, the more I respected her and wanted to read about her journey (and more and more about her and Josh). The story was really interesting- people from outside of Florida are always hearing about it as a state full of weird/crazy things, so I enjoyed reading a book about something that could be a “crazy Florida story” but a militia seems way more midwestern than Floridian, so that was pretty cool! The romance in this book wasn’t as intense or in the forefront as Delilah’s familial bonds/need to save her sister, which was nice to see, but also, like I could have used just a littttttle more romance. All in all though, this was a really good, fun, and exciting read!
