“Give me a memory, Noah.”
That’s what she said … the woman who rendered me stupid in the shadows at a wedding reception. I did everything I could to figure her out. She wore more veils of armor than I’ve seen in a lifetime. On the outside, she was strong and self-assured. But within those beautiful, guarded blues? She was laced with vulnerability and grief.
We had one night. The best night. She got the memory she wanted, but in the process, I was left branded.
Then she thought she could strut out my front door and my life, right after announcing she was my boss’s baby sister.
I had no choice but to follow. Not only did I go after her, I chased her halfway around the world. Because when it comes to her, one memory isn’t enough. It doesn’t matter that there couldn’t be a more opposite pair than us.
Gracie Cain is a healer. I’m Noah Jarvis, a cold-hearted killer.
But when my job came back to bite me in the ass, I wasn’t the only one caught in the crossfire. It bought us memories no one was counting on.
That’s when all the veils were ripped off.
I’m a big fan of Brynne Asher. I’ve read her many times, and this book was just as good as all her other books.
Noah Jarvis is a killer. Not in a bad way – he kills bad guys. He meets Gracie at a wedding, and what’s supposed to be one night turns into so much more. Gracie is leaving for Uganda for two weeks, where she will put her nursing skills to use to help others – that’s what she does. Gracie is overcoming a rough childhood, with the help of her brother Grady, and her three sisters.
Noah is not close to his father, but is very close to his mother. There is a very interesting sub-plot with Noah’s parents – it was very interesting.
As is the case with most of Ms. Asher’s male characters, Noah is VERY alpha. He decided he wanted Gracie and that was it. She was his. He followed her halfway around the world to get her. Gracie was a great character, building herself up after a trauma in her childhood into a healer. I loved seeing Asa, Grady and Crew and their families again.
This book is more romantic suspense than romance, and it was so good. There was a lot of action, but let me tell you – I loved the epilogue of this book. SO MUCH. I won’t give it away, but the epilogue is reason alone to read this story.
If you like rich characters and suspense, this is the book for you. I would recommend that you read the series – all the guys from the previous books make an appearance, so you’ll want to understand that dynamic before reading this one. It’s a book I recommend.
