Their journey is full of sexy love scenes, danger, betrayal and secrets! Will Grant and Thalia survive this last mission? You need to read it and find out! I loved everything about this book! Grant and Thalia, the supporting characters and most of all Winston! Winston is the adorable monkey that Grant befriended on the island and he is a little protective over Thalia also! I am excited for you all to read Second Nature and can't wait to see what DL Roan has in store for us next! Favorite Quotes: She couldn't handle the jumbled up ball of confusing need that knotted in her stomach when he looked at her with such fierce intensity. No way could she handle that kind of assault again! He smiled against her skin, his lips trailing up her thigh. "Easy Fossa, I want to taste you." Never in his life had he been so consumed by a women. The need to feel her, to taste her on his lips and wrap himself in her scent.
Great romantic suspense. A real page turner. Couldn't put it down. Enjoyed catching up with characters from first book.
4.5 Stars!!! An ex-assassin, a tropical island, a woman in trouble AND a warning for explicit sexual content? Did this author have a key to my secret diary and find my recipe for a good, action packed romance. Why yes, I think she may have. So, Grant is the ex-assassin, intensely hot alpha male previously mentioned. He exiles himself in order to cleanse his soul of the things he and done and seen when an injured woman washes ashore in need of his help. He rescues her and does his best to patch her up. He discovers the woman, Thalia, has escaped from a human trafficking ring and is in serious danger. So, they are thrown together in a stressful life or death situation and end up taking comfort in one another (cue warning for explicit sex…yowza). This is an intense and fast paced book. I, for one, had a difficult time putting it down. It is well written and in being so invested me deeply in the characters. The character development is above average and I really wanted a HEA for Grant and Thalia’s story, which I think is why I devoured this book so quickly. It’s one of those books that you just HAVE to see what happens at the end and you’re not satisfied to stop until you do. Grant is so deliciously alpha, but not in a way where you doubt his motives. He strikes just the right balance of sexy, demanding and bossy. And Thalia is his perfect counterpart, as she in not inclined to take crap from anyone. The chemistry and dynamic between the two is the cornerstone of this book and why it is so successful at drawing you in. This is book 2 in a series, but can be read as a standalone. I had not read the first book but had no trouble following the story of Grant, who is apparently introduced in book one. I know that now I will definitely go back and read book one, as this author’s writing style is one of the best I have read in a long while. A solid 4.5 star book for me.

This fast paced and action packed story had me on the edge of my seat from the very beginning. The characters were real and engaging and the story was told so vividly that I could easily picture the scene at any given moment. Grant and Thalia are perfect for each other. They are both lethal and have damaged pasts. They both are also passionate, intense, and have a will of pure steel. I really liked Thalia and despite everything that has happened before the story and during the story, she still manages to stay strong and fight. Grant puts his best skills to the test in this story but he also learns how to open up and be human. There were also some seriously steamy scenes in this book that had me fanning myself several times. D.L. Roan does not disappoint with well written characters that make you love or hate them and an excellent story line that had me riveted from beginning to end. This high stakes, intense, and sometimes emotionally draining is a must read. Excellent story and a 5 out of 5 stars!
