Chocked full of intrigue, secrets and adventures Author Valerie Bowman draws in the reader with this fully developed romantic storyline. One of the things I highly respect is how the author runs us on a merry chase in this book trying to solve the mystery behind who Cade Cavendish and Danielle LaCrosse really are behind their cool facades. The addition of the steamy sexual tension between these two make this a hot romance as well.
The hero of this book, Cade, will cause any woman’s heart to beat quickly as his character comes across as the bad boy type. His constant evasion of speaking the truth was frustrating for everyone who cared for him but it really adds to the story by causing the reader to wonder who he really is and is he really as bad as we think.
Danielle, the heroine, is the perfect person to foil and mess with Cade’s cool reserve which she does quite often. Her character drew me in because she is not a helpless female in spite of her hard times. I love her “take no prisoner” philosophy as well as her softer side towards her ill mother and the others in the Cavendish household. I’d like to think that if I was in her position I would be just like her…. strong and not a victim.
I give this book 4.5 STARS for creating characters that are hard to pinpoint and neatly categorize.
Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
