*arc received from the author for an honest review*
I am a huge Caisey Quinn fan. I think I've read all her books, usually as soon as they come out. She is one of the authors I'm down for with new releases. Gotta get my grabby little hands on her books. I did the same with this one. I had to read it asap and I'm glad I did. I am such a sucker for a second chance romance .
I felt like I was reading a CSI book, or SVU or something. It is crime drama and romance tied together. Talk about surprise left hook. You know Chase didn't expect to have someone from his past walk into his investigation, especially not Viv. There's so much tension and anger mixed in with his feelings for her. It's so thick you feel like it's an actual character in the book itself. Until the tension breaks. Until the truth comes out . Then there's nothing holding back these two star crossed lovers.
You have this romance that these two are trying to build back on, trying to build a future with, but yet there is someone trying to half their future all together. The way Caisey has written this, you're not sure who's really after who... is it her? Or is it him? Why? What is really going on ? What are we missing? What key to this puzzle are we missing? All the while the heat is building with the case, with their romance, and between their friends. I mean come on Luke- man up.. get on it! GAH! You're pulling for all these relationship to work out but at the same time, you feel the clock ticking over their heads.
I loved how Caisey wrote this story. I was pulled in from the beginning and stayed so intrigued through the whole story. I really did feel like it was mixing a romance story with an episode of CSI. And in normal CQ fashion, it's so hot when these two collide and oh so romantic.
"There hasn't been a single day that I haven't thought of you, haven't missed you, haven't hurt from the loss of you." He inhaled again and continued. "I have been the furthest thing from fine. I've been trying to pretend to live when I've been dead inside since the day I though I lost you."
GAH see what I mean ! So Romantic!
" I can hear your heart beat."
"It beats for you, Viv. Only for you".
swoon.... Who knew that bomb expert could be so romantic!
