The blurb reads,
“While investigating patient complaints as the hospital’s compliance officer, Anika is attacked by a man claiming she murdered his wife. After wickedly seductive Gabriel rescues her, she knows she isn’t quite dead when all she thinks about are his eyes devouring her in a single glance.
As Anika recovers, she receives a note urging her to ‘Stop the Murders.’ But she’s clueless as to who is about to be killed. Bewildered, she accepts Gabriel’s offer to unravel the mystery behind the message.
With the death toll rising, Gabriel refuses to deny his erotic compulsion for Anika while tracking down the murderer. Equally consumed by her own insatiable passions, Anika leaves them both vulnerable to life-threatening dangers. Their obsession to be together will either save or destroy them as well as hundreds about to be killed.”
I absolutely loved this book. I love thrillers and I have just begun discovering the world of erotica and this book just combined them both! AND HOW!!! The book starts off in an unusual way and I was a little puzzled as to where the story was going. There were so many parallel themes going on together. Whether it be the growing attraction between Anika and Gabriel or the revenge plot or the attacks on Anika’s life. This book effectively lead the reader into 3 different stories panning out together and tied them at the end.
But then, like the protagonist Anika, I got pulled into a mystery of deaths happening at Premier Hospitals, one of the leading healthcare institutions. Anika is left a note to ‘STOP THE MURDERS’ and she being the compliance officer, decides to investigate. She is drawn to her savior, who she refers to as ‘Savage’. Their growing attraction and passion for each other is put in the backdrop of a well drawn revenge plot.
What I absolutely loved about this book was that the medical thriller and the plot for revenge and murder is never lost in the sheets of passion. The passion and the love scenes!! OMG!! I was so hooked on to those and I had to resurface from my Kindle for a breather!! Some books do leave you with a feeling as if something knocked you out. It takes a while to recover from the effects. This was definitely one of those books.
The plot is very unique and the characters are layered. There is a parallel version of the revenge plot but at no point can the reader actually make out what is happening and how the book will end. I absolutely LOVED the end. There were so many twists and turns that one could never predict what was happening.
I’ve kept talking about ending the books hurriedly and this one took its time and built the climax!! Reading this book was an absolute rush. I felt I could connect with the characters and the situations that they were in and appreciated the medical detail which the author had put into the book.
I’m going to watch out for this author’s future works!
My Rating: 4/5
