I also enjoyed the dual story lines of hiding Rebecca and Gustave's Resistance activities. I was kept on the edge of my seat more than once, waiting to see if this person would see Rebecca out of hiding or that person following Gustave would get him or not. I only wished that the author might have combined the story lines more. More than once, I felt like I was reading two different novels but with the same characters. Despite that, I loved the tension and suspense of the storyline. The author kept me guessing more than once on people's motivations and who was an ally/enemy.
Sweet romance, edge-of-your-seat Resistance stuff, and hiding a Jew in Nazi Germany, all of this leads to a enjoyable read. If only the glaring explicit sex scenes and dual story lines didn't muck it up... In the end, I've got to go with a 3 for the entire read. While I enjoyed the story and characters, way too much sex and flip-flopping plot threads left me a bit cold in the end.
Rebecca Bloomberg, whose loved ones have been taken from her and sent to a concentration camp, is a gutsy young woman the reader can immediately sympathize with. She's thrust into a way of life that forces her to trust the one man she shouldn't - Gustav Von Furst, a man she believes supports the Nazi cause. Though she tries to keep her distance, circumstances forces them into close proximity, leading her to see the man behind the façade.
Gustav Von Furst is a man determined to do what's right even if it could cost him everything he holds dear including his own life. He works undercover as a Nazi journalist while helping the English government. Due to the very nature of his work, he is suspicious of nearly everyone he meets, questioning if friends and acquaintances are just that or something more sinister. The fact that he is willing to risk everything to do what's right makes him a hero to root for and to fall in love with.
It is apparent from the very beginning Alyson Reuben has done a great deal of research into the time period. Both Rebecca and Gustav are well written characters that had me wanting them to get their happily ever after from the very start. The nail biting suspense, encounters between Rebecca and Gustav, and the perilous situation in general make this a must read. I can't wait for Alyson's next book.
