This story has twists and turns that had me hanging on to each word. The characters felt so real they leaped right off the page. I loved the fast pace and fresh, suspenseful plot. It had sizzing sexual heat - a hot alpha hero that any woman would love. All I can say is, WOW!
I REALLY enjoyed this book! With the exception of some minor editing glitches, this is a fabulous read and my first by Diane Escalara. Sienna came home from work to find her house broken into and her beloved beagle, Zola, missing. After searching all night with no luck finding her, Sienna takes the advice of a friend and contacts a professional. From the first moment she meets Cruz, there is an instant connection, could he be the one she's waited her entire life for? At 18 Sienna got pregnant and married the father, Lazaro. She was young, in love and believed had the entire world ahead of her. After 18 years of being unhappy and unfulfilled, she decided to end the marriage. She wanted & needed more. After being divorced for several years, she knows what she wants from a relationship & is strong and confident enough with herself, to accept nothing less! Cruz is a strong & very dominant male. He knows what he wants in a woman and refuses to settle until he finds her. Sparks fly when they meet and a whirlwind weekend and dog rescue ensue. Even though I am a huge animal lover and the plot in this book was refreshingly new, that aspect took a backseat to the very HAWT romance between Cruz & Sienna. I completely identified with this book. I had my first child & was married at 18. I thought I knew everything, when in reality, I was just a baby myself with a lot growing up to do still to do. I didn't have the life experience yet to know who I was much less what I needed from a significant other. Sometimes just because you have love for a person doesn't mean that that person is the one meant for you. Thankfully, I found my soulmate in my husband all those years ago, Sienna wasn't so lucky. Ms. Escalara wrote very real & believable characters. Often times in romance novels, the H/h are professing their love after only a matter of hours. While Cruz & Sienna knew they had something special, they also realized love takes time & work. My only issues with this story were scene transitions at the beginning of the book. It was difficult for me to keep up and I had to re-read the first couple of chapters just to make sure I wasn't missing anything. This seemed to correct itself by the middle and, for me, no longer was an issue. Ms. Escalara's writing style allowed the story to be beautifully told without being too rushed or overly descriptive! I definitely look forward to reading more from her ?
