The rest of the book was "Steve's" attempting to overcome his total amnesia and Jay's battling her guilt that she refused to tell him the truth, for his own protection - and because she didn't want the charade to end so she'd be sent away and lose him. Yeah - pretty lame. Of course, she gives in to his sexual demands despite her guilt.
Jay came across as needy, desperate and dishonest. Lucas (he eventually remembered his real name) came across as having bonded with a woman just because she held his hand when he was helpless. I felt deeply skeptical that their bond was real, deep or enduring.
The only reason I gave this book 3 stars instead of two, was because LH did a fabulous job describing Lucas and making his virility and sexual appeal so potent. He lacked refinement or sensitivity, but was completely convincing as a lethal, high value secret agent and as a man who made "women fall all over themselves" (as described by Payne).
Too bad the hot affair (and marriage) between J and L seemed doomed (in my opinion) to a swift end. The whole story made little sense.
THE STORY: Jay Granger's life changes when the FBI comes to her door to tell her that her ex-husband has been in a terrible accident and that they need her to come identify him. Although they have been divorced for five years, Jay cannot abandon Steve Crossfield. She is drawn to the man in the hospital bed but when he wakes he seems so different from the man she remembers loving before.
OPINION: This story is not complicated and I figured out quickly what was happening, but the story is well executed and the characters are so interesting that I was engaged throughout the story. This book was originally published as a category romance and thus lacks some of the sophistication and complexity allowed in a longer novel. I liked these characters who fell in love without really knowing the truth about what happened to Steve. The connection of these characters is visceral -- a recognition of spirits. The real mystery in this one is how the truth about Steve's actions and identity will be revealed and what that will make for the hero and heroine. A fun (not funny) read.
WORTH MENTIONING: Kell Sabin.
CONNECTED BOOKS: WHITE LIES is the fourth book in the loosely connected Rescues series. It can be read as a standalone.
STAR RATING: I give this book 4 stars.
