Romantic suspense is one of my favourite tropes and I thought it was a good idea to jump into this story blind. This author is new to me and I found a lot of good points in this book that makes it a fascinating read.
Elise Morgan is the new girl in Mount Hood, wanting a fresh start. She’s a city girl who is still getting the feel of the small town vibe where everybody knows everyone’s business. When she comes across Damon, a mysterious guy who draws her attention like a magnet, she will do anything to get to know him. For someone who is in her twenties, she is a bit naive and quite trusting.
Damon is the local bad boy but no one really knows his issues except for the unconfirmed rumours floating around him. His instant attraction to the new girl makes him feel vulnerable and there are things in his life that need to be addressed first before thinking of hooking up with Elise.
Elise and Damon’s story is told in dual points of view and has a good plot. My only issue is that Elise’s character who although is in her mid-twenties and coming from Los Angeles is quite naive and jumps easily into dangerous situations. Either she is too trusting or plain reckless I just had trouble connecting to her character. Damon, on the other hand, is the brooding alpha male, mysterious and dangerous. He is the perfect bad boy to Elise’s nice but simple(ton) girl persona, [sorry but when you read the part about the ransom money you will know what I mean].
Kendra and her sidekicks as the antagonists with their “mean girl” antics somehow don’t correlate to their age. The plot thickens when Damon’s father appears to be the main reason of all the action and drama in this book, but I wished that there had been more back story provided by the author to shed more light to the father and son relationship.
The overall plot and suspense was good enough to grab my attention and finish this book even though to my mind of thinking, the author could have given Elise more IQ points to make me like her persona more. I will definitely have a look at this author’s other books as I find his narrative style quite interesting.
Alex hails from the Midwest and currently resides in New Orleans.
He enjoys writing steamy romance but more importantly, he enjoys the “research” required to produce the steamy scenes. If you like filthy-mouthed, possessive alpha heroes and steamy romance, then he’s the author for you!
