Review & Giveaway: The Epic Story of RJ and York by Susan May Warren

Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour for The Epic Story of RJ and York by Susan May Warren,
hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!


It’s an epic adventure across Europe, from France to Italy, to Germany and even Russia in this riveting, fun, romantic, enthralling trilogy about true love, honor, and the cost of, well, saving the world.

Title: Out of the Night

Series: The Epic Story of York & RJ #1

Author: Susan May Warren

Publisher: SDG Publishing

Release Date: August 9, 2022

Genre: Romantic Suspense (Clean)

The romantic trilogy ignites in book one of the Epic Story of RJ and York!

He’s not looking for trouble…

All former spy and current national security agent York Newgate wants is to propose to the woman he loves, RJ Marshall. Then they can move to Shelly, Washington, and start the calm, safe life he’s been dreaming of for over a year.

Too bad trouble doesn’t agree…

Or maybe RJ simply attracts trouble because she’s just going out for coffee when she spots a wanted, known terrorist standing in the middle of a street in Paris. At least she thinks it’s international criminal Alan Martin, the mastermind behind a plot to kill the president.

But he’s in jail, right?

Wrong. Martin has escaped, and it’s up to RJ—and York—to keep him in their sights until he can be apprehended. But chasing down Martin means following him into the darkness of whatever plot he’s cooked up now.

Will he ever outrun trouble to find his happy ending?

So much for York’s epic proposal. Now, he just wants to escape Europe with their lives.

Title: I Will Find You

Series: The Epic Story of York & RJ #2

Author: Susan May Warren

Publisher: SDG Publishing

Release Date: August 16, 2022

Genre: Romantic Suspense (Clean)

The gripping romantic adventure continues across Europe in this second installment of the Epic Story of RJ and York!

The woman he loves has vanished…

When RJ Marshall said she’d be right back, York should have objected. No, he wasn’t going to let her run off to Berlin, even if it was to save a little girl.

Only problem—she’d told him this while he was unconscious. So really, it doesn’t count, and it’s not his fault that she’s gone missing. And, he didn’t know why he expected RJ not to chase danger into trouble. But now he has to find her before criminal mastermind Alan Martin tracks her down.

She’s in over her head…

RJ didn’t mean to leave York behind, but she’s on a mission to save a little girl caught in the crossfire of Martin’s terrorist plot. Now, she’ll have to find the girl and keep her safe while leaving clues for York to follow her.

But who will catch up to her first—York, or the man with a vendetta?

The riveting conclusion to the Epic Story of RJ and York!

Her worst nightmare has happened….

RJ refuses to believe it, and until she has proof, she’s going to keep searching for answers. And most of all, for the man she loves, even if it means diving into the past he always wanted to keep secret.

The kind of secrets that could have set York free. It’ll take a trip back to Russia, to the sketchy and dark history of York’s life to find the clues to the sinister plans of a global terrorist. And the answers that might lead her to a happy ending.

Or has it? What if her happy ending is more than a dream?

If RJ hopes to save her country—and find out the truth about York—she’ll have to become the high-action, Sydney Bristow spy that she always dreamed of being. But really, does RJ really have what it takes—with, or without the man she loves—to save the world?

And if she does…what will be the cost?

Out of the Night was everything I could have hoped for in terms of an action packed spy thriller, woven with swoony romance between York and RJ. This book (and series) is one that must be read in order, as this story ends in a cliffhanger. I believe it also needs to be read after both The Montana Marshalls series and the Global Search and Rescue series in order to understand both the worldwide events that have taken place and also as a way to meet RJ and York and learn their backstories and about all of the events that have shaped them into the people they are. Their story really is epic and flows across multiple books.

I really felt for York. He loves RJ so much and wants to spend his life with her. And it is clear that RJ loves York, as well, yet there is something in her which keeps her jumping into danger at every corner. This really takes a toll on York, who wants to put all of the danger behind them. There were portions of this story where I wanted to tell RJ to look in front of her and see the man who wanted to make a life with her. And I think she finally got it and understood how hard this was for York, yet the story arc is far from concluded, and things are far from settled. This book has me ready and anxious to dive into book two, I Will Find You, to see what happens next!

(5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.


Book two picks up right after the cliffhanger of book one and plummets the reader into more international intrigue and danger that just won’t let up! Yet, in between hiding and fighting for their lives, the author weaves York and RJ’s romance into the pages with some truly beautiful moments for the two of them.

There were so many things I loved about this novel, including snippets from the historical biography that RJ was reading. That epic love story from history added even more depth to RJ and York’s own circumstances.

I really liked the way the team that formed in this story worked together. They had many dangerous situations to get themselves out of. I will find you ends in a cliffhanger that will lead directly into book three, No Matter the Cost. I am so anxious to find out what happens next!

I have loved this series so much! It was such a wonderful combination of intrigue, spies, clues to unravel, and danger threaded into the love story of a couple who have been through so many life threatening situations in their time together. As they work to uncover and defeat the masterminds behind all of the terror and destruction that has been following them, while also trying to thwart any imminent plans that may be in the works, York and RJ must discover where they belong as they move into the future.

Throughout this whole series, I have loved seeing York’s heart and his love for RJ. In this last novel, however, he is so much the spy and man of action that he was when RJ met him that I felt like it brought things full circle.

I loved every part of this story! There were some amazing and intense action scenes and some truly swoon worthy moments of romance between these two. I loved the way the author tied everything up and am always amazed at how she connects various book series and events together. I loved the epilogue. I hope that some of the side characters that we have met will get their own stories someday, too.
