Publisher's Summary

Dr. Samantha Moore is one of the youngest and most acclaimed researchers in the world. Her specialty is blood, and she has been recruited by the largest pharmaceutical company in Scotland.
For what purpose, she cannot begin to imagine, but in an attempt to break out of her painfully shy shell, she throws caution to the wind and leaves her family and best friend behind in Savannah.
Dr. Kade Gunnach is taking a chance hiring an outsider, but he's desperate to find out how to help his sister. He believes the key lies in her blood, but so far, no one has found the answers. When the new researcher walks into his office, he's unprepared for his reaction to her and the life-changing ramifications her arrival brings.
They're drawn together by a force neither is prepared for, but Kade is holding something back. Something that could scare her away.
When Samantha learns his secret, will she run?
Will Kade be able to live with the answers he's been desperately searching for?

Pretty good story here!

While I was a fan of this story, I felt Sam was way too accepting of everything that Cade told her too soon. She didn’t really freak out or anything or really question much. I am interested in continuing with this series because I want to know what was going on with Pepper and what happens with Peyton.

Questions/Comments:

I found it strange that Sam’s brother doesn’t know Pepper’s real name when they’ve been friends since the second grade.

How naïve is Sam? I mean she ‘should’ know that Cade likes her, yet she continues hanging out with Cole and obviously flirting with him. Yes, I’m sure he’s just looking for a friend.

Why did Sam never question why Cade and family ate so frequently? And why did they try to make her eat like them prior to her even knowing who they really were?

Maybe it’s because I’m not the sentimental nickname kind of person when it comes to calling my husband some sappy name. But I felt that Sam overused the ‘honey’ term towards Cade. I feel they overdid it with the ‘I Love You’s’ too. Like every time Cade and Sam ended a conversation they had to say it. Again, maybe it’s just me.

I also found it strange that Sam never wondered how old Cade’s family was, his mother especially. Or, even better, how she would explain the fact that she wouldn’t be aging like normal to her family and friends.

How did Cade know the words for the bonding ceremony for when he and Sam got together, yet didn’t know anything else about what was going to happen to Sam afterwards-the change?

I’m left wondering why Cade’s mother was involved in the attempted kidnapping of Sam and that part where Shannon and her goons showed up at the end. Why didn’t his mom just not tell them about her affair.
