Ripped Apart by Miriam Minger

TWO MOTHERS DESPERATELY WANT ONE THING...THE SAME LITTLE BOY.
Winning awards for master storytelling and fast-paced plots, bestselling author Miriam Minger presents her edge-of-your-seat thriller RIPPED APART against the violent backdrop of the drug trade along the Texas-Mexico border.
SHE WILL DO ANYTHING TO GET HER SON BACK. THEY WILL KILL HER TO KEEP HIM.
Unspeakable tragedy and cold-blooded murder conspire against Clare Carson when her six-year-old son is kidnapped after a heart transplant and his abductors want her dead. A dying cop’s last words lead her to former Special Ops Jake Wyatt, who helps her discover the horrific truth behind her son’s abduction and offers to help her get Tyler back. With nowhere else to turn, Clare entrusts her life to Jake not knowing he has a deadly agenda of his own that could destroy them both.(synopsis from Goodreads)


Ripped Apart was a gripping physiological thriller with a dash of romance.  This tale had me riveted from page one.  Minger’s plot is filled with danger, suspense, lots of twists and a storyline you aren’t sure to forget.

The protagonist Clare Carson has a six year old son named Tyler. Tyler suffers from a heart defect, which will one day require surgery. When he stops breathing at the mall, he is rushed to the hospital.  Meanwhile, a bus load of kids on their way to camp are hit by a semi-truck. Two little boys die on the bus that day. One boy’s parents donate his organs; the other's realize there has been a mistake.  The doctors are able to revive Tyler, and miraculously a heart is available.  I really liked Clare. She is one tough cookie and no one messes with her little boy. The tale that unfolds involves the drug cartel, a sexy, rugged, ex-militia man named Jake, two mothers who undeniably love their sons and a man who lives by greed and control.  The action and chase scenes were intense and genuine.  I couldn’t put this book down.  The romance that develops between Jake and Clare is honest, heated and believable.

I highly recommend Ripped Apart to fans of psychological thrillers and romance. This novel is currently available in eBook format.
