I had read several books by this author, so I was anticipating a good book, but what caught me by surprise was how great this one was. I wanted to pace myself while reading this book, but I was hooked from the first paragraph and was saddened when I was done.
You first meet Malik and Natasha in a previous book, but believe me when I say this can be read as a standalone. The story begins with Malik, a former Navy SEAL, remembering their night of passion and, yet, you see the vulnerability in him as he questions what he and Natasha, the Hospital Chief of Staff, have in common.
As Malik’s never ending desire for Natasha refuses to wane, a situation arises bringing them both together, making one believe in divine intervention. Something mysterious is happening at the hospital; and while Natasha tries to get a handle on it, Malik, all 6 feet 8 inches of him, shows himself in her life. Malik isn’t quite sure what is more frustrating for him: the situation at the hospital, the men vying for Natasha’s attention or her stubbornness in remaining independent.
This is a classic damsel in distress story with such a refreshing edge. Although this is romance, make no mistake of the loaded suspense. You will be held hostage in your seat while Malik does all in his power to protect the lovely Natasha, who refuses to believe her life is in danger. This book is romantic suspense at its best.
