*ARC given in return for an honest review.
I honestly don't what to say other than I loved this book! I've gone through every emotion possible. I loved the story. I loved Grant & Thalia. I loved the supporting characters. I adored Winston. Have you guessed? I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!!
Second Nature has all the ingredients for a great read - hot, steamy sex, HOT, hunky alpha male Grant, laugh out loud moments, (Winston!) nail biting tension and adventure with a few jaw dropping OMIGOD I didn't see THAT coming!! moments.
This is the second book I've read from author D.L. Roan, the first being Second Chances, where Grant Kendal first caught my eye. I knew then I was going to like him and boy, I certainly wasn't disappointed! Grant is certainly ALL kinds of hotness rolled up into a sexy package with a sensitive side well hidden living alone on a deserted island. Grant meets the beautiful, feisty and strong-willed Thalia when she washes ashore on his island stabbed,badly beaten and nearly dead. They both have secrets that neither are willing to reveal for fear of the truth being exposed. The chemistry between the couple is evident straight away and oh, my blood pressure nearly exploded, not to mention my ovaries when things heated up between the pair. I want my own Grant!!! *sobs*
Although the story is woven around a hard and brutal subject, human trafficking, the author still manages to create a brilliant action packed romance story filled with humour as well as on-the-edge-of-your-seat tension and harrowing heart break.
As I was reading I could see the scenes play out in front of me like an action film. Some parts of the book reminded me of Homeland (and I LOVE that show!). I was right there with the characters every step of the way. I could even see the evil glint in Jauhar's eyes, I was SO into Grant & Thalia's story. Did I tell you I love that couple?
I HAVE to mention a very special & funny character in the story, Winston the Macaque monkey, I absolutely loved him! He certainly is one very cheeky monkey who stole my heart. I think he should get his own story, what do you say D.L?
his 'shack' maybe?
Oh, and look out for a certain Deputy Director Dax Keller - Triple D-K. I have a feeling we will be meeting him again.
I really am not doing Second Nature the justice it deserves so I'm just gonna say...GO BUY THE BOOK!!
