Luke is a sexy DEA Agent who is assigned to go undercover and retrieve the flash drive that Katya stole. In order to do so, he must get close to Katya. However, he gets too close and actually falls in love with her.
There are fireworks between Luke and Katya! After a night of steamy passion you could totally feel the chemistry between these two characters!
I liked Luke and Katya, but found them to be somewhat ridiculous. However, as far-fetched as their actions seemed, it’s also what made these characters realistic. I personally couldn’t forgive and forget as easily as Katya, but I am sure there are many women out there who would – and have.
Luke is HOT!! His sexiness definitely helps overlook some of his flaws – but he does come with baggage! Later in the book he does have some redeeming moments, which does help make up for the heartache he put Katya and I through – lol! But still for me, it’s a long road uphill for complete forgiveness.
Sadly, I found Katya to be somewhat pathetic as she fondles over Luke and allows him to treat her like crap. There’s even one point where SHE feels guilty and sorry for him betraying her! But I guess I have never had that intense relationship with someone that I could look past no matter how they acted or treated me – where love was the only thing that mattered.
Katya is betrayed by Luke not once, but TWICE!! His number would definitely be deleted out of my phone and I would not give him another chance! But Katya is in love and wants to be with Luke regardless. I know holding grudges is never the answer, but if someone broke my heart the way Luke did it would take me quite a while to just get over it.
This book is well researched and thought out. There is extensive detail that makes it easy to picture – including the steamy scenes! The book’s pace is mostly steady, but does contain a few slower, dragging scenes throughout. This book also switches between multiple POVs – which wasn’t actually confusing, it was written well enough to easily follow and I liked hearing from the different perspectives. I also really liked the supporting characters – very interesting and entertaining! I am so looking forward to discovering more about the sexy King Security men!
There were only a couple of things that I didn’t like in this book. I hated the long timeframe wait between the main characters. Five years just seemed a bit too drawn out. Also, I wish Katya hadn’t forgiven Luke so easily. He hurt her, he broke her heart, he used her, and so much more, and she just let him. Yes, I wanted these characters to get together, but I think Katya should have made Luke work for it a bit more.
All in all, I really did enjoy reading this book! There is so much to this book! This book is full of excitement, action, mystery, suspense, crime, passion, betrayal, regret, heartache, forgiveness, love, secrets, second – and third chances! I would definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in a complex romantic suspense book filled with hot, steamy, passionate scenes!
**Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.**
Katya wants out. Out of her father's grasp and away from his criminal empire. After hearing of his plans to marry her off to a man she despises, Katya has no choice but to flee. But on the way out, she takes a flash drive for insurance. Little does she know, but her father isn't the only one interested in the drive.
Luke is just doing his job. He's the good guy, working hard to put criminals behind bars. At least, that's what he keeps telling himself. His new assignment of retrieving the flash drive is becoming a disaster-in-the-making as he feels himself quickly falling for Katya's sweet smile and sugar coated lips.
After one amazing night together, neither of their lives will ever be the same. But when the sun rises, the sting of betrayal leaves Katya with a broken heart and Luke with instant regret. With thousands of miles between them, years pass by. Then Luke and Katya somehow find themselves back together, again, desperately trying to mend their hearts and survive the turmoil of a vengeful nemesis, painful memories, and secrets galore.
This book had a lot to offer. There was romance, mystery, and action. A few surprises and twists, too. Several of the secondary characters were entertaining and the love scenes had plenty of spice. Once I started reading this book, I had a hard time putting it down.
I was completely on board with the story for at least the first three-quarters of the book. Then, I noticed some repetition and plotlines that dragged on, almost as if the story got away from the author a bit. I think there could have been a satisfactory ending about 50 pages earlier, completely omitting the entire scene with Julian. It's just my personal opinion, as my enjoyment tends to wane if a story goes too long and delays conclusion.
Despite that, I really enjoyed this book. The first half left me on the edge of my seat, watching our couple meet, separate, and come together, again. I actually liked the way the POV changed from first-person when with Katya to third-person when it was Luke's side of the story. That was something I hadn't really seen before.
It looks like Luke's best bud, Gray, will be next to have his story told. I am looking forward to it! Four suns!
