I received a KINDLE Edition for this book as a giveaway prize through a FaceBook group, and the following is my honest opinion of the book.
One would think someone like Brad Morgan, who gained his experience as a Royal Marine Commando, would have had any problems with the simple task of protecting Alicia Gladstone, an entertainer. It shouldn’t have Brad had been in an elite unit, and now owns his company in the field of private security, which he operates under the same standards he’d learned in the service.
But it does, and he’s ultimately comes to terms with this issue; all the while making sure his client is kept safe.
Being an entertainer, Alicia lives most of her day to day in another world, a world in which practically everything is really a fake. People are not who or what they appear to be, and things which seem to be happening have merely been staged. Think of walking onto a movie set in the middle of movie set without realizing it and seeing people being shot at, etc.; the experience can be quite upsetting.
While this for Brad it is extremely distracting given his training, it poses no problem. However seeing this happening, and hearing the sounds triggers a history he believed he’d had long forgotten about; now becomes something he needs to resolve before he can truly move on.
Alicia is a strong, self-determined woman who lets nothing to get in her way of what needs to be done, and like the old silent movie, “The Perils of Pauline,” she’s able to overcome things which gets thrown in her way.
The overall melding of action, dialogue, plot twists made for an exciting turn-paging read. The mixture of two genres; mystery and romance, added to the enjoyment of this book; especially that of the relationship which develops between these, ending with --- you’ve got to read the book to find out.
A word of advice to American readers:
The author uses the British spelling of words, so a word like “favorite” become “favourite,” and also uses British terminology. While becoming a Book Reviewer, I’ve become accustomed in reading this, still shouldn’t distract anyone else from enjoying this book as I have.
In the end, I’m happy to give this book 5 STARS.
