In the novel "Fatal Intent" by Rashia Kennie, Garrett and her team of entomologists lose their way within the silent depth of Borneo Rain Forest, without the least understanding of what awaits them there. With their guide dead in a peculiar way, they are forced to seek the assistance of Aidan, a stranger, a 'Tarzan' type of a man, bohemian but irresistibly handsome. How long would Garret be able to resist her growing attraction towards him? Will they be able to solve the mystery regarding the death of their guide, whose headless corpse was found floating on the river? The super-dynamic plot of the novel forces the reader to untangle these knots by rapidly turning the pages till the very end.
The plot is extremely fresh in its approach and the writer makes the reader accompany the team of entomologists in their journey through the exotic landscape of Borneo rain forest. The two protagonists, Garett and Aidan, are characterized with such vivacity that it is impossible for the reader not to like them. They differ from a stereotypical couple of a romantic hero and heroine, as they are more true to life and have depth of character. The novel combines mystery and horror with romance, a romance which is unusual and unique. The plot line depicting the attraction of opposites is effectively used to arrest the attention of the reader. The fast-paced and highly dramatic plot maintains suspense till the very end, making this piece of writing extremely readable.

I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review. Garrett Cole, a sexy, smart, strong female entomologist. She leads her first expedition to Borneo with her group of misfit scientists. Their guide leaves them for a few hours telling Garrett where to meet him, he doesn’t arrive. The group believes headhunters are a thing of the past, only to be read in history books, so imagine their shock when they find Malcolm, their guide, washed ashore, headless! They’ve decided to follow the river and getting pushed away from it into the thick jungle. Aidan, the sexy Nordic, in a loincloth I might add, finds them (Can you say Tarzan?) There’s an instant connection between Aidian and Garrett. But seriously, who wouldn’t, he’s a sexy guy in a loincloth!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I loved this mystery, there are so many possible scenarios that could have led to Malcolm’s death, the truth was quite a surprise and not something I had expected. The sexual tension between Garrett and Aidan was just crazy. She was so independent and tried to fight the inevitable. This was quite the story, one that I thoroughly enjoyed. I appreciated the fact that the romance wasn’t the main focus of the book, the mystery was. It was interesting the mix of characters that truly had their own unique quirks. A great relaxing read!
