But all bets are off as he and beautiful, independent Emma fight to stay steps ahead of their enemies. Her resourcefulness and courage ignite desire he's willing to go through hell to keep. But love and survival are never guaranteed..
I had a hard time getting into the story of Emma and Derrick. I know a lot of intro paragraphs are supposed to throw you off guard or put you straight into the action. But I think not knowing what was going on made this book hard to figure out. The back and forth banter about Emma’s sister that missing had me confused. I couldn’t figure out who the heroine was in the beginning.
The characters were interesting and I thought the action aspect of the book was very good. But I didn’t find myself invested in “wanting” to read it and get it finished. I drug my feet with this one and was happy when it was finally over so I could move on to my next book in my TBR pile.
If you like suspense, Harlequin Romantic Suspense is a great place to start and they have a lot of titles you can add to your mystery/suspense library.
I bought this book with my own money.
