This romantic suspense story is a delightful addition to this series and tells of the romance between the youngest – and only bachelor – Gallagher brother, Dylan and Doctor Samantha (Sam) Striker. He has a reputation for never being in a serious relationship, he’s dated lots of women but never for long and always remains friends with them after they split up. She has made some poor choices for dates in the past and is now wary of going out with any man, doubting her own ability to discern if the man is trustworthy or not.
Despite Sam’s reticence, Dylan is determined to win her over to go on at least one date with him. As their romance grows, however, so do the incidents around them, escalating in the peril associated with them. As they realise that someone from her past is out to harm Sam, can they identify the perpetrator before he succeeds?
It isn’t only the people who are the great characters in this story – the horses and dogs also have key roles, especially Trouble and Shadow! The reader knows the identity of Sam’s stalker but this just adds to the tension as Dylan, Sam and the others struggle to identify him. It is a great read as they strive to keep each other safe whilst their love, understanding and relationship grow. I love this author’s writing style as she immerses the reader in the action packed story, making it easy to empathise and relate to the characters, feeling their tension, angst and turmoil. The story ends on a real cliff hanger moment and I can’t wait to discover what has happened to Dylan’s missing sister, who I assume will be the main character in the next book in this series!
I requested and was gifted a copy of this book via NetGalley and this is my honest opinion after choosing to read it.
Dylan Gallagher loves playing the field. The only serious relationship he’s ever had was with his horses and his ranch, and he had no intention of ever changing that… Until he met Dr. Samantha Striker, a challenge too tempting to resist.
Samantha Striker doesn’t fall easily, not even for Dylan and his heart-melting charm. But she can’t deny that the more time they spend together, the steamier their relationship becomes. Soon, she finds that their relationship is more than just simple desire.
When Samantha is threatened by a series of incidents, each one more terrifying than the last, she realizes that someone doesn’t want her to be happy–with Dylan or anyone else. Can they find the man responsible before his actions turn from dangerous to deadly, and Dylan loses the woman he’s discovering he can’t live without?
