Just as she started feeling normal again, Kacy is thrown into a tailspin. She finds a note slipped under her door, and mistakes it for one Gulliver left earlier. Only this note was from him. He was coming for her. Kacy's instinct is to lean on Gulliver, but she is dealt another devastating blow by his betrayal. She desperately wants to trust him, but she is afraid to. As the attempts against Kacy escalate, she wonders if she will be able to escape this time.
If I could give this book a higher rating I would! Very emotionally charged, and full of suspense pulling the reader in from the beginning. Kacy is an extremely complex well-written character, and the chemistry between she and Gulliver is sensual and sexy. The author obviously did a lot of research on assaults, and victims' reactions to different stimulus. The book was written with many intricate specific details. Great read!
Much to the consternation and jealousy of her neighbor Peter, a man by the name of Gulliver Knight moves in next door to Kacy. First, she panics, unsure of him or his motives. Soon, she finds herself falling for the kind and persistent man with the intense eyes and quick action. Although she has a hard time touching another person, Kacy discovers that she enjoys touching Gulliver, and kissing him, and loving him. However, she quickly discovers that Gulliver isn't quite the man he says he is.
It's clear that most of Kacy's friends and family think she's a little insane after her attack and doesn't take her claims that she's in danger as real threats. Yet, when it becomes apparent that the attacker isn't far from Kacy and may attack her again, will she be believed? What's more, will Gulliver believe her and will he be able to save her in time? Finally, if they make it through their ordeal, will their relationship, built on lies and deceit, be beyond repair?
I thoroughly enjoyed reading A Desperate Longing. It had just the right amount of suspense to keep me riveted to the pages and the passionate tension between Kacy and Gulliver was sizzling. Gulliver was a believable and delicious hero that had me turning the pages for more. Kacy was a little delicate, at first, for my tastes, but when push came to shove, she was able to tap into her admirable inner strength. This is a great story to read during a couple of hours of quiet time. I look forward to reading more works by Brenda Williamson in the future.
