I thoroughly enjoyed this book! I thought the suspense and romance blended quite nicely. Alex was an amazing woman and incredibly strong both physically and mentally. I loved the fact that she could take care of herself. I also thought the author really captured the human side of her by making her vulnerable to emotion this kept her from being Superwoman. Xian seemed to be such a powerful, yet sensitive person. Xian has a calm and patient role in this story. His growing fondness for Alex pulls him toward her. He wants to be the one to calm her and reassure her that it's okay to let him in. I was pleasantly surprised to find an interracial romance that was just a bit different from the usual. I can't wait to see what this author has in store for us in the future. An Excellent Read!
