The first novel in New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Eden’s sizzling LOST series introduces the Last Option Search Team, an elite unit that must protect the only surviving victim of a serial killer.
Ex-SEAL and LOST founder Gabe Spencer is accustomed to the unusual in his job. But when knockout Eve Gray steps into his office, he’s rattled. For the mysterious woman is a dead ringer for the heiress thought to be the latest prey of the serial killer who goes by the name Lady Killer.
When Eve awoke in an Atlanta hospital, her past was a blank slate. Then she recognized her own face in the newspaper and vowed to learn the truth. Determined to confront the nightmares hidden in her mind, she never expects to find a partner in Gabe.
As Gabe and Eve work together, their explosive attraction becomes irresistible. Gabe knows that his desire for Eve is growing too strong, bordering on a dangerous obsession, but nothing pulls him away from her. And when another Eve lookalike disappears, Gabe vows to protect Eve at all costs. While Eve may have forgotten the killer in her past, it’s clear he hasn’t forgotten her.
Another winner from Cynthia Eden! I was hooked from the first sentence and didn’t put it down until I was done. I loved the premise of this book and Cynthia did a great job with the mystery aspect of this book, I had it down to two people but was never sure which one it was until the end. Each member of the LOST team has such an interesting past. I feel like we got just enough info about each of them to make me crave more. Cynthia is great at writing dark heroes. If I didn’t know better I would think the hero was the bad guy at times. Gabe’s intensity for Eve is borderline scary. Eve feels just as strongly for him she just didn’t know if the cause is his willingness to help her or actual feelings. I don’t want to giveaway anything, but this book is full of twists and turns that are sure to leave you dying for more. This is a fantastic start to a new series and I can’t wait to read more.
