Dissident is about a fictional world where the government are rotten to the core and good people are prepared to fight against the status quo. The mature protagonists, John McIntyre and Caroline lead the complex story through many elements and layers. It's a political thriller at its core but equally depicts a love affair that slowly builds and, as the series progresses, their deep rooted relationship is portrayed with beauty and depth.

The Bellator Saga is showcased through the past and present creating stark juxtapositions through the prose of each period. The past depicts a time that is beautiful with splendour, wealth and power for the protagonists as their relationship builds and blossoms whereas the present is steeped in political unrest and sees the heroine fighting for her life. The character's mature status adds an authentic quality to the telling. They're at the top of their respective careers, they've lived, she has children and he's had a sting of women and past relationships that have never amounted to anything,

I love their easy way with each other, the dynamic of their relationship and individual personalities within the many moving parts of this story. I had a few small issues with repetition and, for my personal taste, the past is over-detailed. That said, this first part in the series is largely setting the scene and creating the tone and mood of the story with the back ground of the characters, friendships and political scenarios so, despite some aspects feeling a little too fleshed out, this couple grabbed my interest and I was keen to see their relationship and lives play out. I simply had to know where their story went and how far the corrupt government would go in their quest for domination.

This book starts off with two people trying to get to Canada, it is not clear exactly what is going on but only that there are one male and one female who are married and trying to escape. This introduction intrigued me and as I kept on reading the following chapters, there is a lot of mention of American politics which to be honest really confused me but that didn’t stop me from enjoying the story. The book jumps from the past to the present and vice versa.

Caroline in the future is recovering from an attack on her life, the people who are trying to help her are seemingly disappearing one by one, and it is not clear why. There are many questions to be answered and not many answers, however I could not stop reading. I honestly have not been this attached to a book for a long time.

The past is based on Caroline moving on from the loss of her husband and Jack who is really sweet and strange at times, wanting to be with Caroline. I’m being purposely vague as I honestly think you should go into this book and saga blind.

There is a cliff-hanger but luckily the next book is out, so off I go to read that one.

4 stars!

A gripping story. I will definitely seek out the rest of this series. The use of flashbacks is very effective in gradually leading the reader to understand how the characters reached the situation described at the start of the book. I loved the snappy dialogue and developing romance

I'm just going to tease you with this review as I could accidentally spoil it for you!

So Dissident is part one of a six part series, it starts of with a thrilling prologue in which Caroline our leading lady and Jack her lover are on the run, the rest of the book keeps up this exciting dialogue.

She is the dissident of the title, she is wanted for questioning by the new government, a terrible regime that stops at nothing to get its way.

Caroline is a wonderful character, she is intelligent and strong but yet not afraid to show vulnerability and Dissident is a gripping tale of love, power and intrigue.

So there you go I hope I have tease it enough for you and I hope you enjoy it as I did!

Thank you to Indie Sage PR for providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest review

Ok ok deep breathes... I have no idea what's going on right now.. I'm at the end of Dissident and I'm feeling a tad nervous. But hoping to Gawd book two I will start to understand what's happening, what I do know is this is not a light read, but a gripping pull at your hair, page turner and make you stop life kind of story...

So onto my review... I'm not from the US I'm English and politics isn't my forte but hey my blogger buddy Suzanne has recommended this. So I went in with both feet and I'm going to give a little bit of advice to you that she's given to me. Don't worry about the Politics in this book so much and look deeper.. That is what I'm doing and why I'm taking this in its stride, and why I've fallen hook line and sinker for Jack McIntyre!! I'm clueless as what means what at this point so just going to explain in the best way I can and why I'm enjoying this so far..

So What's it about?
Caroline has lost her husband tragically and her life has been a HUGE struggle this past year, and so she is living life with her closest friends and her two daughters. Who are EVERYTHING TO HER. She is also on the opposite party to Jack when it comes to campaigns and such but let's just say one look at Caroline and his playboy ways stopped and there upon a friendship developed. Gradually, slowly and overtime Jack wove himself deep into Caroline's life.

"We're not just friends, sweetheart." His mouth was at her ear and his voice, dripping with desire and seductive promise, driving her insane. "You know that. We have a connection. I want to be with you, as much more than friends." He traced his fingers down her throat to her collarbone and she quivered, hearing a thudding noise as her purse dropped to the floor. "You want this," Jack whispered. "You need this.
