My rating: 5 of 5 stars
More than your typical romance
Wow! Just Wow! I sat down with a cup of tea, a bar of chocolate and a spare hour before bed thinking that this would be a lovely romance to fill a lonely evening. Was I only half right!
Every character in this book is flawed in his or her own way. Chasey is a quiet, introverted person who prefers her romance between the pages of books. Safe and non-confrontational. Scorch is an ex-marine, a play-actor who runs simulations of kidnappings, rescues and other scenarios. His body is paid for, his heart protected.
So when their lives collide, and the lines between fantasy and reality blur and sputter, they are both forced to confront their pasts in order to survive their realities.
Unexpected plot twists and compelling characters meant that I read this book through the night in a single sitting. When I read it again, with the foreknowledge of what would happen, I got so much more out of the book.
I would recommend this to anyone who loves a Romance, a Mystery, or just a thrilling read that will keep you turning the pages til the end.
