Undeniable is book 4 in the Tortured Love series by Ravenna Tate. It's the story of Houston Cassidy, homicide detective, and Rosanna Selim, a paralegal for the Graves Law Firm, both located in Cleveland. Their love affair is the stuff of fairytales. A chance meeting, an immediate attraction, a hot, sexy relationship that quickly develops. What more could a couple ask for? But complications soon arrive. There's an cold case, Houston's first case as a detective, never solved, involving a murder of a young college man found in a snowy field with no clues as to his killer. The case has haunted Houston for the past 12 years. His partner comes across a clue they've never seen before, and Houston jumps at the chance to solve the case that "got away." He and Annie take off in a race to locate clues that will lead them to the murderer. Unfortunately, as the clues pile up, what they find doesn't make Houston happy. Quite the contrary, in fact. He soon dreads the truth but knows he has to solve this case. Meanwhile, Rosanna is happier than she has ever been. She has found the man of her dreams. He's handsome, loving, caring. Sure, he's a detective, works unreasonably long hours, has been married and divorced three times. But they're in love. She's over-the-moon about him. She has a job that she loves. The same night Houston learns of the lead on the old case, he and Rosanna have dinner, joking and talking as normal. He teases her about her job, nothing new, just the same playful banter as before. She teases him back. But when he asks, again, if it bothers her to work for a law firm that defends murderers, rapists, thieves, and arsonists, it causes the same response as always. A flash of darkness, like a cloud of gray/black, flits through her mind. It's like a heavy weight that comes from nowhere. It's nothing new, nothing important. It's happened for years, just momentary bursts when she feels the weight of something in her mind, But then it's gone as if it never happened. She's used to it. It's more a nuisance than anything else. That evening Houston also brings up the old case, describing it in general terms since he can't give details. As she listens to him talk, the flash of darkness returns. Only this time it's heavier, darker, than in the past. It makes her uneasy in a way she's never felt before. She tries her best to put it out of her mind and, once again, dismisses it and moves on. Shortly thereafter, however, Rosanna starts having nightmares of being chased down a dark hallway, running from a man. She tries finding the stairs so she can escape but every time she reaches the stairs, they disappear. Her phone suddenly wakes her. She is trembling and frightened. She's never had a dream like this before and wants to remember while she still can. She makes notes, trying to recapture every detail. She doesn't realize she's about to fall down a rabbit hole and her life will never be the same. To say that Ravenna Tate is a master of both suspense and erotic romance at the same time would be an understatement. I won't give any spoilers here but the story is engaging, romantic, sexy, at times heartbreaking and totally captivating. If you enjoy this genre, you will definitely LOVE Undeniable.
I'll be the first to admit, I'm a HUGE Ravenna Tate fan, so I was super excited when this book came out because I love this series so far, but I have to say that as much as I loved the other books, this one, by far, blew me away. I mean, I think this may be my favorite book from her ever. I ran through the gamut of emotions from laughing to crying and I was seriously bummed out when it was all over. (Because it was over.) Houston Cassidy is a police detective who has been a detective for 12 years. He's gone through 3 marriages because of it, but he wouldn't give it up. He also has a girlfriend, Rosanna Selim who he is crazy about. His partner Annie, who drives him and all the rest of the precinct crazy, has found a lead on a cold case. His very first case as detective. He tells Rosanna about the case, and she starts having nightmares along with ages old flashes of dark images. Houston starts to suspect that Rosanna may just be the suspect he's been looking for. If she is, then she may have lived through something horrible. I seriously felt for both characters in this book as both Houston and Annie's investigation progressed and Rosanna not only had to deal with lost memories, but with Houston being a bit of a jerk for a while, and then dealing with her repressed memories when they come to light. Aside from Houston's period of being said jerk, he really was a great guy. And I liked Annie, maybe she'll have a book. All in all, if I could give this more than 5 Stars, I certainly would. Just an awesome read!!!
