Whoa....talk about a great suspense book!! Read the story overview...it really is the perfect description of the story in this book, but this book is so much deeper than that. Jake and Adam went out on a blind date ten months ago. It ended horrifically and completely humiliatingly for both men and both blamed themselves for it. They haven't seen each other since that night until Jake is called to calm a disturbance at Adam's work...a support and therapy center.
They connect again, mainly as a means to apologize for that awful evening, but then discover that they have amazing chemistry and things develop for them from there. I loved both these guys' characters. Adam was a victim, but he's worked so hard in the 4 years since his captivity so that he will never be one again. He's incredibly strong and such a positive person, although he is definitely still haunted by what happened. He works daily at the center to help others find strength in themselves. He finds it hard to trust and invest himself in a relationship though. In fact, he's resigned himself to never having a permanent relationship. On the other side is Jake. He's an NYPD detective. At heart, he is a protector. When he cares, he cares deeply and thoroughly. He's one of those guys who when he gets into a relationship is all-in.
Throughout the majority of the book, we just get to enjoy watching these wonderful guys build a relationship and begin to fall in love, although the bad guy is most definitely lurking. And *gah* this is one evil bad-guy. He's in the book from the very beginning and you get to watch as his madness builds. It's frightening and completely creepy to watch his psychosis deepen as he becomes more and more obsessed with his killing ritual.
It was a fantastic book! It's really emotional....there's a lot going on here especially with Adam's past, but I loved both Jake and Adam and loved watching their story evolve. I was worried about how the author would end the book and not give us enough with everything that went on, but the ending was just perfect. LOVE!
