What the majority of people don’t know or understand, is that when a child’s taken from everything they know, their traumatized emotions soon bypass the initial fear and move onto a horrible acceptance that they might never be found. A soul destroying, deep-embedded realization that maybe their mum and dad don’t actually love them as the child thought… otherwise they would come and find them.
This was my first chance to read Rachel Brimble’s work and I plan to repeat the experience as often as possible as I found her narrative to be well-crafted, stimulating, and easy to follow. Ms. Brimble adroitly maintained the tension and suspense as I felt the urgency and turmoil within my own body that a missing child would invoke. The main characters were intriguing yet deeply damaged by past traumas. Tori proved more difficult for me to warm up to or appreciate, as she was extremely prickly, distrustful, snappish, driven, and obsessed to the point of arrogance. I empathized with the saintly and sexy Mark, and it is just hard for me to resist a sweet and thoughtful man who works with his hands. The storyline was interesting and engaging while Ms. Brimble’s writing was thoughtfully insightful, observantly detailed, occasionally steamy, and held my attention throughout.
Let me just start off by saying that I think this has to be the best book Rachel Brimble has written. I love all her books to date but my goodness she has totally excelled herself with If I Want You. The action begins immediately and the reader is thrown straight into the drama from the opening pages with barely time to come up for air. The story is both exciting and suspenseful and if its edge of your seat you want then you have it in this book. Add to that the romantic, sexy and 'oh dear me pass me something to waft myself with' moments then this book certainly has it all. The sexual attraction jumps off the pages!
Rachel Brimble has created such brilliant characters. Tori Peterson might have suffered a horrific experience as a child but she's quite tough, not taking no for an answer. She does not suffer fools gladly and is determined to use her job as a journalist to get things done rather than wait around for the police. But, under her hard exterior she's still that little girl crying for her parents and wanting to be safe. Mark Bolton recognises this vulnerability and not only does he want to protect Tori, he also wants to love her. He too tries to keep his fears and vulnerable side hidden and at the heart of it, he and Tori are more alike than either would care to admit. And, in true suspense fashion, Rachel Brimble has crafted the perfect psycho baddie! Love it! A few shocking OMG moments too! I really can't think of anything negative to say about this book. Get out there and buy it! Its on my list of highly recommended reads.
I have had the pleasure of reading many of Rachel Brimble's books over the last couple of years and have enjoyed them all very much, but this book is in a completely different class as it's so very different to everything else that she has ever written. The story and plotline was very well thought out and the quality of the writing is very easy to follow.
This is a story that had me gripped right from the start, and you could say that it's a little more of sinister dark thriller rather than just a suspenseful romance. In parts of the story it gave me chills and goosebumps along my spine but it does add more angst to the story and kept me guessing who was behind it all.
I really liked Tori's character, she is a strong independant woman, that even though she was reliving her own personal nightmare, she kept a level head and didn't give up on the search for Abby. Mark I was very unsure of at first but I did grow to like him the more we got to know about him and his daughter.
I did guess who was behind it all but I was close to the end of the story before I decided who it was and I was so ecstatic that I was right! This was a great story that I can't tell you enough how much I enjoyed reading it.
5 Amazing Stars!
Tori Peterson is sitting in a car waiting to pick up her niece from school. She's a bit distracted, but as she looks up, a man is forcing a young girl into his car. Terrified, she runs after them, but to no avail. Tori is not only a journalist, but a survivor of being kidnapped herself when she was a young child.
While waiting for police Tori meets Mark Bolton, a widower whose daughter attends the same school. He does well in calming parents and teachers alike and is instantly attracted to Tori.
Tori and Mark join forces in helping the police look for the missing child. Everything changes when Tori notices the many similarities between her own kidnapping and those of today.
Is her kidnapper out of prison and back to take her again? Is this a copycat who knows Tori's background? Tori has always had trust issues so can she trust Mark?
For each of their own reasons, Tori and Mark are determined to find the missing child.
This is a well written suspense about two people who do not trust easily and have to overcome their own issues about themselves and each other. There are some twists and turns that negate everything you think you know up to that point. I liked the characters and how they interacted with each other.

I couldn't get into this book. While the premise was really interesting, the constant paragraph and paragraph of internal dialogue was annoying and actually...Read more
