Gitte:So I thought this was a really romantic, passionate and action filled story Jenny and I loved it! It had mystery, a sexy alpha-male who is a navy seal (*sigh*) and a sweet and clued-up heroine who shows real endurance and bravery. It definitely also delivered in the HEAT department!!
Jenny: It sure was passionate and delivered heat with an extra serving on the side with our hot sexy alpha seal (insert double sigh here!)
Gitte: I thought Becca was a great heroine. She was a gorgeous intelligent, strong, classy and adventurous woman. She knew what she wanted…knew what she deserved and didn’t settle for anything less. She fell for Reid completely and knew he was the man for her and then he was sent away. Becca starts to question what they had when she doesn’t hear from him and tries to move on. When Becca is asked by a colleague, David, to decode a dodgy file her story begins which throws drama, suspense and passion at us readers.
Jenny: I really connected with Becca. I agonised with her over the lack of response from Reid and yes Gitte, she came across as a strong, intelligent woman who knew exactly what she wanted and spoke her mind. She was refreshing and I really did like her.
Gitte: Now Reid..umm wow Jenny. A gorgeous navy seal who is as alpha as they come..yeah all I can say here really is YES please! He has just returned from Afghanistan eager to be reunited with Becca whom he knows he is falling for. He had promised her to come back to her, however after an x-rated letter from Becca whilst he was away, he failed to contact her for six weeks. Hmm yeah I would have been pretty angry too despite the gorgeousness of this man…but maybe not for too long! When he returns he finds out Becca may have moved on and he goes to confront her. Reid is beyond shocked to find Becca in the manner that he does and the journey he is thrown into is not at all what he was expecting.
Jenny: Oh my giddy aunt! Reid was….hmmm…yep, Gitte, Reid was indeed wow! I was wondering why he hadn’t contacted her and found myself making excuses for him because he did seem like such a nice guy, I knew he had his reasons and I was right! I would have forgiven him in a heartbeat. He is a good man to have on your side that’s for sure. A hot, capable Navy Seal…yes please!
Gitte: I really liked the suspense in this story as well as the passion. I thought it was well balanced and just made for a really yummy indulgent read. The window scene and the mirror scene…yeah just wow!!!
Jenny: This story was indeed passionate and the steam factor was high. I loved these characters and hearing both voices enabled me to feel and relate to the both Becca and Reid. Oh yes the mirror scene! Hot indeed! We sure did jam up the phone lines discussing that one! HOT! Overall a good read which I enjoyed from start to finish.
