- See the full review at NDPBookReview.com - Hummy nummy NUMMY! Am I delusional from lack of sleep, or is this book just that good? Prepare yourselves for a rickety rollercoaster of a ride! Pity, doubt, anger. Rachel Brimble sets the stage for yet another fantastic suspense and a fluctuation of emotions. But don't worry, the constant invasion of suspicion and fear has a perfect undertone of flavorful saucy romance. Rachel Brimble will take your heart on a via dolorosa, friends. This devastation is depicted with such imagery and sorrow. We could end the book here and it would be a ★★★★★ read! Flash flood ain't got nothin' on the level 5 hurricane I'm projecting off my FACE right now! A Man Like Him is deliciously intoxicating. Two people. One on the run. One in hiding. Chris is perfectly damaged, a little senseless, and a whole lot dreamy! Angela goes from living day by day in her secluded little dome, to facing her one enemy. As Chris transforms into a protector, Angela begins to trust again. Sleep? Ya RIGHT! Prepare for a restless night, because you will not want to put this book down!

I was excited to have another opportunity to read and review a book by Rachel Brimble. I had my first taste of her earlier this year and had a feeling that I would like this book as much as the other one. I was right. Before the book even gets started, Rachel tells us that this is more of a personal story for her, as she and her family were among those who were caught in the floods of 2010 and had to be rescused from a rooftop. Others weren't so lucky. I could feel her emotion as she relived that experience by writing a similar disaster in this story. I even had a tear or two in my eyes as I tried to imagine the horror. Luckily, that horrible part doesn't go on forever. The flood is the foundation for the good, the bad, and the ugly that happens in this story, but it isn't the whole story. I do think she could write another book based on her experiences, though. Anyway, both Chris and Angela are damaged souls. Chris is trying to get over losing his fiancee to another man. Angela has been on the run from an abusive husband. Yes, they are drawn together thanks to a tragedy, but are both also reawakened. The threat of Robert coming after Angela bonds them as Angela is determined to stop living her life in fear and Chris is determined to actually take care of someone about whom he cares deeply. At the same time, they are both quite fearful of giving in to someone again, after having been so hurt in the past. I can't say that I blame them. A rapidly developing romance based on crisis and fear isn't one that is necessarily going to make it long-term. The two of them have plenty of ups and downs as they try to protect themselves from the psychotic ex-husband who is now threatening all of Rachel's loved ones. They have a long road ahead of them, should they decide to maintain this relationship. There are a lot of pros and cons, but you find yourself rooting for them to make it and hope they can find the same faith in love that you have as the reader. There is plenty of action and suspense as they are forced to take matters into their own hands when it comes to apprehending Robert. It's not an FBI thriller, but will still keep you glued to the Kindle screen. Yes, it is somewhat predictable and formulaic, but the storytelling makes it worth it. Rachel has successfully added unique story ideas to a familiar plot, to make it her own. I found this to be a great escape and yet again look forward to reading another one of her books. I received a complimentary ecopy in exchange for my honest review.
