Michael Carvin is very surprised when his trainer turns out to be a woman. Jess is just what the ranch needs, a woman's touch so to speak. On their first meeting, as his friend is the one who hired her, they were squabbling like kids and Mike wanted her gone then and there. Dan, Mike's friend, needs his help on a case and helps Mike makes up his mind to keep Jess on the job for 2 months. The story gets interesting at this point and gets better with each page. The reason for my 5 star rating? I loved the characters, they were described perfectly. The book was written so well I was on the edge of my seat to see what was going to happen next. I also enjoyed the interaction between all the characters. I actually felt like part of the group watching with them what was going on or working with them out in the fields training horses. The romance of the story is just as pleasing. I felt for Mike, as he needs someone to love and care for and vice versa. I was either laughing or on the edge reading this book. I did not put this book down till the end and even then I hated seeing the book end. I will be looking or more books from this author. She has a fan. Babs, The One Hundred Romances Project

A super book. Kept me hooked and wasn't overly smutty! Hate when a book with romance is too graphic.

I thoroughly enjoyed the book. At first glance the chemistry between the two protagonists was so strong I wanted the love scenes to be rushed. But the author was very strategic in her delivery she prolonged the inevitable for as long as she did. However, once that part of the book got there, it was explosive. The whodunit was a true mystery. The culprit was totally unexpected for me.

I enjoyed this book. It is a short read but time lapses in the story enough to be believable. The characters are immediately drawn to one another but don't immediately have sex which, for me, is a little more believable and also less slutty. Characters were lovable and fun yet had depth. The plot was good though a little thin as I figured out who the killer is about a quarter of the way into the book, though everyone may not as it was not completely obvious, I've just read a lot of mystery/suspense novels. If you enjoy this book but love a great mystery detective novel and don't mind buying books (as this was a free read for me) I HIGHLY recommend Anne Perry's William and Charlotte Pitt series!

I loved this book! Has a really good story line and keeps you guessing throughout! And the ending was deinatly not as i was expecting, but i loved the twist. I felt myself rooting for Michael and Jessica the whole time! Iwould only say that i wish that the characters relationship growth showed a little more, some questions i felt needed to be answered about Michael. But overall a great book.

I am not a big fan of mystery, but this mystery had me riveted to its pages! The last chapter scared me half to death, but the entire story itself had my heart pounding so loud, I was certain people in China could hear it! This is the only mystery I have and will forever love! 5 stars!!

Every once in awhile a reader will come across a book that simply cannot be put down. When you find that book and begin reading, all else in your world ceases to exist. The dishes don¿t get done, the laundry goes unfolded, and the dirty toilet can just wait one more day! Most recently, I found that wondrous sensation with Aris Whittier¿s fast-paced and well-written romantic-suspense novel, Fatal Embrace. Whittier opens her novel with Michael, a hard-working if sullen cowboy who owns and operates a horse training facility; a place that has become his sanctuary since leaving his job as a police detective. Whittier also quickly introduces a second main character, the witty, sarcastic, and somewhat naughty Jessica Stanson, a young woman who has come to Michael¿s ranch to work as a trainer. The opening scene between these two characters does much to set the stage for not only their relationship but for the novel as a whole. The opening scene is well thought out and well written. It is a primary motivator in engaging the reader so completely. Just beyond the opening scene we discover that the communities surrounding the ranch have recently been plagued by a viscous killer who is targeting young women. To date, the crimes have gone unsolved and as such, a very reluctant Michael has agreed to serve as a consultant to the police in an effort to solve a seemingly unsolvable case. As Michael becomes obsessed with finding the killer he also discovers that Jessica is a good sounding board for his thoughts and concerns. This arrangement could have become awkward as Jessica is a horse trainer. Whittier has managed to successfully weave Jessica into Michael¿s world. Of course, the two also discover a mutual attraction to one another ¿ DUH and YIPPEE! The crimes, Jessica¿s presence, and the pressure to find the killer all combine to create a novel that is bursting with sexual and psychological tension. This tension continues to mount throughout the novel as Whittier leads us toward the end. She skillfully draws all of the plots, sub-plots, and characters together into what should have been a really spectacular finish. As I headed into this section of the book, I was completely lost in this world and couldn¿t wait to discover the fate of all involved. Unfortunately, I was completely disappointed. Where the book failed for me was in how quickly everything was resolved. What had been a well-paced and exciting read became a horse race (pardon the pun) to the finish. Whittier should have devoted more time and space to the completion of this book. Each of the major revelations needs time to sink before moving on to the next. Was I disappointed by anything else? No, absolutely not! Would I recommend this book to a friend? Absolutely! Fatal Embrace is an engrossing tale with excellent dialogue, fun characters, and a smart plot that is, unfortunately, lacking conviction in the conclusion.Review written by Leisha for my blog A Tale of Many Reviews
