Blog Tour Review: Endure by Kristin Kitchen

Endure (The Greyson-Slade Series, Book #1)
By: Kristin Kitchen
Kat Quincy never knew what love was until someone showed her what it wasn't.
A 911 Dispatcher with a close knit group of friends, she is keeping an abusive relationship secret from. Taking care of everyone but herself day to day until John Greyson discovers her secrets and turns her world upside down.

John Greyson is a former military man with a soft spot for Kat Quincy, Never finding a way into her heart until he becomes her protector.

*Recommended for mature audiences due to strong language and sexual content.*

This is a debut book from this author and straight away it hooks you in with the first page. Kat works as a 911 dispatcher and Jamie is a Paramedic working at the local hospital, that's how they originally meet.  He wore her down with his good looks and compliments.  Kat is now in a relationship with  Jamie.  The first page begins with Kat pulling herself up off the floor after Jamie has taken his rage out on her.  They have been together for 6 months or so and he now regularly hits her.  He is careful to avoid leaving any marks on her where someone would see it and she is creative at finding ways to cover it up.
After hiding this secret about her relationship from her best friend Maddie and husband Rylan,  she can't hide the latest injuries and finally confesses to them about what has been going on at home with Jamie.
Rylan and his mate John own Greyson-Slade Security and immediately contact the police and put a plan in action to protect Kat and bring Jamie to justice.  Jamie does a runner and is determined to get back at Kat for what he feels is her fault.
John has been in love with Kat for years and has been biding his time to make her his. 
"Please give me the chance to show you what love really is" - John
He is a big, strong, sexy alpha male and will stop at nothing to protect Kat and keep her safe.  She completely falls for him and the safety and protectiveness he has for her.
Just to add to the psycho Jamie situation there is also a female stalker who is obsessed with getting rid of Kat from John's life so she can have him all to herself.  When her and Jamie join forces it gets pretty nasty for both Kat & John.
There is never a dull moment in this story and I must make mention of one of the stars in the story, Romeo  John's dog.  He is awesome :)
Really good debut novel from Kristin and I look forward to more in this series.
