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.
Because of what Tori discovers she gets the feeling the abduction wasn't random. There are similarities with the situation she was in many years ago. Memories of the past come to the surface and Tori has to deal with the horrible captor who took away her childhood all over again. Will she be strong enough to deal with the kidnapper and will the missing girl be found? While Tori is looking for clues together with Mark they become closer, but it isn't the right time for love, or is it?
If I Want You is a gripping romantic story. Tori doesn't trust easily. The memories of the past are still making life difficult for her and she thinks she'll never experience the happiness a lot of other people seem to find so easily. My heart ached for Tori and everything she had to go through and I kept hoping better days would come for her. First she has a case to solve though and the search for the missing girl kept me on the edge of my seat. Rachel Brimble combines mystery with romance in a great way and I flew through the pages of her story.
Rachel Brimble has a fabulous compelling writing style. She describes what her main characters are going through in a vivid and sympathetic way. I could easily understand everything Mark and Tori were feeling. They are on a mission and are trying to dig up as much information as they can, but they are also allowing themselves to go through the many different emotions involved in such a hard situation. I was curious to find out more about the case, but also about their relationship. There are clues, combined with sparks and deep moving scenes. If I Want You is a versatile story and I absolutely loved this captivating book.
