5 out of 5 Licks
In the second seductive Lost novel from New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Eden, an obsessed Last Option Search Team agent goes looking for trouble—and finds her in the Big Easy.
Dean Bannon comes to New Orleans for one reason only: to track down a missing sixteen-year-old girl. That’s before he meets the drop-dead gorgeous con artist who makes him want to lose his legendary control.
With her past, Emma Castille doesn’t claim to be psychic. She just notices things other people don’t. Like the fear in a runaway’s eyes-or the pain in an ex-FBI agent’s heart. Her chemistry with Dean is blistering, but Emma follows her passion . . . not someone else’s orders.
Then a madman breaks into Emma’s home and leaves a twisted message: “You’re next.” Now Dean refuses to let her out of his sight until he pries every last secret from her full, sexy lips. And suddenly Emma’s aching to give him everything he wants.
Another hit for Cynthia Eden! I have come to love Cynthia’s dark heroes. I can’t wait to see where she will take her characters and she has yet to disappoint me. I even found myself wondering multiple times if Dean really was the bad guy. Of course he’s not though. Once we learn a little more about the past it was pretty clear to me who the killer was, but I still wasn’t sure where Cynthia would take us. This is definitely a twisted tale weaving two unlikely people together. In one respect I never wanted the book to end, but I found myself devouring every page to see what happens. As much as I loved the developing relationship between Dean and Emma, Jax totally stole the show. I am ecstatic that his book is next! I’m not sure how I am going to wait until the end of October to read Shattered. I’m glad I have a warranty on my iPad because I’m pretty sure it’s going to catch fire when I read it!
