Luella King has experienced loss all her life. After losing her parents and the most important person in her life, she hesitates to open up to anyone and instead plays it safe. One night, she throws caution to the wind and gives into her desires with a sexy stranger.
Fearing her sudden and unexpected loss of control, Luella runs away from him. A chance second encounter pushes her to open her eyes and give the stranger a chance.
There’s something about Jack MacCabe that makes her feel safe enough to lower her guard. Despite how busy he is with his job as a security specialist, they continue to spend more time together and with each date and late night message she finds herself falling in love.
When a serial killer wreaks havoc on their city, Jack’s dangerously close proximity to the case reignites Luella’s fears of losing someone important to her. Surrendering her fears in order to keep Jack by her side challenges Luella to her limits, while Jack is under pressure to catch the serial killer before it’s too late.
As Jack and Luella draw closer to one another, the killer closes in on their next victim. Soon Jack and Luella find themselves entrenched in a mystery they never saw coming.
New to me author and a new to me read. All in all it was good. Enjoyable. Sexy. VERY sexy.
I feel like there could have been less “romance” though and more suspense, especially with the way the author wanted this story line to go. I was torn about what I was really supposed to be waiting for in the story: the relationship or the “twist”.
The epilogue was rushed, there were definitely some things that could have been broken down and explained more thorough than it was but hey! The last paragraph was phenomenal. I got goosebumps.
As far as a debut novel goes, Fiona executed it. Her writing was enjoyable and I’m excited to read her second book.
Fiona, girl…give me some secondary character stories. Please. Now. Thank you.
