When the FBI brings Laura Roberts – a quiet, reserved bookkeeper – in for questioning regarding activities at the warehouse where she works, an uneasy Laura resigns her job – only to be attacked by thugs.
Chase Donovan intends to spend a few peaceful days on his boat getting his head together – and finds a woman being assaulted by two men who say his father told them to do it.
Chase doesn’t want to believe his father could hurt anyone. Laura doesn’t understand why she’s a target. Can they learn to work together to discover the truth – before someone dies?
Review: If you enjoy romance with a little/a lot of suspense thrown in you just may enjoy this story from Ms. Adams. Taken from her boring life as a bookkeeper we find Laura in the midst of an investigation that throws her into the arms of ‘Handsome’ Chase Donovan.
Chase the son of the boss. Chase is the stereotypical playboy…money, women, alcohol along with the carefree life. That is until he finds himself needing to get away…where he then finds himself saving Laura from her imminent fate.
Ms. Adam touches on a whole gamut of feelings within a short amount of time for Chase and Laura but it works. Makes you believe that there are ‘magic moments’ when you don’t expect them.
I loved the two taking off on a boat where they headed down the coastline to find a safe haven but would have liked more detail/description of the trip. Other than the school of dolphins it was just a trip in a boat. With no other boats around…seemed a little farfetched.
The characters although a little vague were likable enough. I simply would have loved to hear more about Aunt Lonnie she seemed like a character. Even with the way the story was written and the introduction of many into the storyline you could feel what each was going through. Ms. Adams did a nice job conveying the depth of feelings. As a reader you could feel the pain that Laura was going through when being roughed up by the hired killers. You even at times felt a little bit sorry for Chase dad Dick.
Overall the story was written well capturing you attention, making you feel for the characters without going into too many details.
For a romantic suspense it was on the light side.
