Blurb: Lethal undercover agent Stefan Prakenskii knew a thousand ways to kills a man—and twice as many ways to pleasure a woman. That’s what made him look forward to his new mission: arrive in the coastal town of Sea Haven and insinuate himself in the life of an elusive beauty who had mysterious ties to his past, and a link to a dangerously seductive, and equally elusive master criminal who wanted only one thing: to possess her.
Judith Henderson was an artist on the rise—an ethereal, and haunted woman whose own picture-perfect beauty stirred the souls of two men who have made her their obsession. For years she has been waiting for someone to come and unlock the passion and fire within her—waiting for the right man to surrender it to. But only one man can survive her secrets, and the shadow she has cast over both their lives.
Review: I feel almost the same way about this book that I did about Turbulent Sea, though I like this one a little better.
The writing wasn’t all that great here, I didn’t feel the same way I did about Water Bound. The cover is alright, though maybe it could have had something to do with what she loved to do, painting instead of looking like the picture described on a jail cell wall. Like Rikki on her cover. It was in the sea and set the tone for the story. This one…not so much.
It’s always going to be interesting learning about the brothers and the girls past but I just couldn’t seem to lose myself in this book. It was rather slow paced for the plot and the ending with the bad guy was a bit anti-climactic. I’m not really sure what to write about this book.
Even when there was action, it felt tame. There was a lot of talk about emotions in this book and maybe that’s one of the reasons I didn’t really feel anything for it? It was a good book, don’t get me wrong, I just didn’t really feel anything.
I know the author writes about the couple that speaks to her the loudest but I feel like this one should have waited? Introduce all the single elements first and then the one that binds them?
Thank you for reading my review.
