Marlie Jacobson was abducted by a serial killer 7 years ago. Unlike others, she managed to escape with her life.
Today, she's known as the girl who killed a killer. She just wants to forget, but she has nightmares and flashbacks.
Her sister, Kaity, has disappeared. Marlie is certain that another killer has taken her ... someone with a lot of knowledge about what Marlie went through. But that man is dead...so who is this copycat?
She hires Kenai Michelson, a very well known private investigator. He's tall, dark and handsome and brooding and rude. Under different circumstances, Marlie would totally avoid this man ... but he's the best at what he does. And Marlie wants her sister back.
They have the slimmest of leads, but they follow them as far as they go. It seems that no matter where they go, they are being watched. Someone wants Marlie to pay for escaping what was supposed to be her destiny.
This is a terrific Romantic Suspense with a blending of contemporary romance and murder. The characters are cleverly defined, even though Marlie and Kenai are both damaged in one away or another. Marlie's mother is a harridan .. the author has described her so well, I could probably identify her walking down the street.
Lots of action, lots of violence. CAUTION: LANGUAGE AND GRAPHIC SEXUAL SITUATIONS.
Many thanks to the author / St. Martin's Press / Netgalley for the digital copy of this book. Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.
I'm giving this a 3 star rating because it probably has a good enough suspense thrill to it but I really want to give it a 1 or 2 star rating because it is just another romantic story with hot, heavy, explicit detailed sex that just isn't my cup of tea, and why oh why can't they talk without the 'f' word every time they open their mouth?
So I guess I'm giving a mixed review, if you want to read the 'f' word in every conversation and read about very explicit sexual encounters detail by detail, then this is the book and the author for you
If you want to read it for suspense and can skip over all of the above then it's for you
For me? I skimmed most of it because I got very tired of the 'f' word in every sentence and the rest for me was just kind of old hat and hum drum
