Book Description

Taken prisoner by a ruthless group of anarchists deep in the Cambodian jungle, anthropologist Jocelyn Hewitt is isolated in a dark prison cell. Without chance of rescue. Or hope. Until the man in the next cell reaches out to let her know she's not as alone as she thinks.

CIA agent Oliver Shaw has been held prisoner for over two years. Forced to witness the brutal torture and slow murder of his entire team, his spirit is not just broken, it's crushed. He no longer believes in hope. Until he hears Jocelyn through the wall, and suddenly feels like a glimpse of light is trying to reach in...

Jocelyn's heart aches for the tortured man whose presence and voice give her the courage to risk their escape. But first she'll have to remind Oliver who he once was, what he once loved, and bring him back to life. Only then will they have a chance for freedom—and the kind of love neither ever thought possible.

4.0 out of 5 stars A- rating.... May 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
My Review:
Look at that cover up there. This is NOT a light-hearted, floofy romance. This book is gritty and it's harsh, but I thought it was so incredibly good. Half this book is spent with the Hero and heroine in captivity. They never even see each other face to face until right before their escape, so this is not a book about romance and flowers. Their surroundings are minimal. The beatings are harsh. The torture is truly inhumane. This book doesn't spare anything, so be prepared.

Oliver is a CIA agent who has been a captive for two years. Not only has he been tortured and beaten, but he's had to watch all of his teammates slowly die. The only reason he's been kept alive is that he's also an artist. One of the Trinity (the lead baddie in this group of three baddies) uses his paintings as his catharsis. That doesn't mean that Oliver is spared anything besides the very basis of his life. Right now, he's doing nothing but surviving. This is a broken man with no hope left...until Jocelyn arrives.

Jocelyn is part of a government team who comes in and excavates human remains so that they can be returned to their loved ones. This trip to Cambodia is especially important (to the point where she lied her way onto the team) because they are there to excavate her father's remains. This quickly goes astray and we learn the team was brought there on false pretenses so that the Trinity could get hold of Jocelyn. She's the key to translating her father's treasure maps even though she was 8 yo when he disappeared/died.

Like I said this book is really pretty harsh, but it was an interesting read about the human spirit. Jocelyn is a strong, positive person and she refuses to let Oliver give up, although he is already way past that point.

5.0 out of 5 stars "ROMANTIC SUSPENSE AT ITS BEST!" July 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Jocelyn Hewitt, an anthropologist, is a prisoner in a dark prison in the jungle of Cambodia. CIA Agent Oliver Shaw, a witness to torture and brutal murder is also a prisoner behind the same dark walls that Joselyn is in. Oliver had given up on hope until he hears Jocelyn's voice through the dark walls. They plan to escape, but first Joselyn and Oliver must help each other emotionally in order to build up the courage to escape in a battle of survival. Action-packed, intense suspense and compelling with chills and thrills. Highly Recommended!

ABOUT THE BOOK: Taken prisoner by a ruthless group of anarchists deep in the Cambodian jungle, anthropologist Jocelyn Hewitt is isolated in a dark prison cell. Without chance of rescue. Or hope. Until the man in the next cell reaches out to let her know she's not as alone as she thinks.

REVIEW: One word. WOW. That one piece sums up this book in its entirety. I really don't think I have adequate words to even begin to explain just how awesome this book is. Ms. Justlin has a way about her writing that paints a vivid picture in your head, draws you into her gripping story, and enthralls you to never put the book down. Her words flow with accuracy and as smooth as churned butter. She doesn't go overboard in the explanation of scenes or the feelings in her character's heads and leaves you with JUST the right amount of insight, enough for the reader to be able to picture it, feel it, and use their own creative minds to finish the picture.

The suspense she drew up not only in the plot of the story but also in the chemistry between the characters was simply divine.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well-written thriller July 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Well-written romantic thriller set in the jungles of Cambodia. A prologue that surprised and plenty of tension and jeopardy. Both main characters, Josie and Oliver, were well-developed AND SO WERE THE VILLAINS. So nice to see.
