Defensive Tactics- Blog Tour- Kimberly Bennett

Here are a couple of my favorite quotes from Kim's review. I appreciate Kim's time in reviewing my book and posting a review to her blog.

"I'm amazed that this is Steve Westover's first novel! I really enjoyed the humor, the suspense, the love triangle and overall, the way he writes."

I also like..."This book is action-packed! With unexpected twists and turns, it keeps you turning pages.

I like that Kim noticed the personal growth of each of the three main characters. "The development of each main character was done very well. Jimmy learns about honesty, commitment, and second chances at life. Emily learns the value of not compromising her beliefs and becoming the main force in bringing justice to those who deserve it. Paul becomes "the man" in protecting and helping those he cares about

And finally..."And not very often can you find a story like this with corrupt business owners, judges and FBI agents, that is told in a clean way and with light LDS influence. It was fantastic!"

Thank you Kim. To read her full review, check out her blog at...


  1. Congratulations on your book's release and all these great reviews, Steve! Cedar Fort is releasing my first novel in December and I enjoy seeing how other CFI authors are doing. Defensive Tactics is on my to-read list.

  2. Thanks Michael and congratulations on your upcoming release. That is really exciting! What's the title of your book and what's it about? I'll keep my eyes open for it.

  3. It's The Rogue Shop, a coming-of-age story about a young man who comes to Salt Lake City for school, under a Bible oath by his strict Baptist aunt to stay away from Mormons. Let's just say things don't go exactly as planned. You can see the cover art on
