Wow! I was so impressed with the concept and set up of this book from the beginning! I was drawn into sexy, competent FBI agent Cole Fletcher who led his squad team into a cult compound to save the followers from a planned suicide mission by their leader. In this compound is where he finds Savannah, huddled in a corner. His primal, instinctive response to Savannah, the beautiful young woman with the vivid emerald eyes, was awesome. I loved his instant attraction to her where he couldn't get her out of his mind. Cole walks a fine line in following his protective inclination to seek out Savannah. Yet, the other inclination he puts a lot of effort into fighting is this strong need to be with her and have her close to him, despite consequences.
There are so many things that worked well in this book. The chemistry between heart-throb, agent Cole and the lovely Savannah was great. When they are together there is this quiet comfort with an underlying buzz of sexual tension that pushes them to the brink of their romance. Cole brings a very willing Savannah to live with him and I loved how kind and sensitive he was to her. This book is filled with both the small and very grand sweet and thoughtful gestures Cole extends toward Savannah. Savannah is equally smitten and consumed by her longing for Cole. She wants him and blossoms under his protection, security and affection.
So, even though there were sweet, endearing moments that had me sighing, "awe." The part of the book where Cole actively resists Savannah lingered for too long and became a stagnant place where not only are Savannah and Cole sexually frustrated, but I felt frustrated for them!!! I felt as though I was reliving Twilight with Edward and Bella who slept with one another and just cuddled for like what years???--(Although for Cole and Savannah, bedtime "cuddle only" nights lasted a few weeks---but, how realistic is that?? Who can do that for so long????). During this time, Cole also made STUPID decisions regarding other women that had me seeing red! And, Savannah's reaction to these situations was sad to me. I felt her vulnerable position in living with Cole most during these awkward situations that Cole created. When Cole finally does give in to Savannah it was a beautiful, scintillating, smoky-hot kind of love. It enhanced their already comfortable relationship and strengthened their bond.
Overall, I found this book to be enjoyable. It piqued my interest as I anxiously rooted for both Cole and Savannah as they worked toward their HEA. One of my favorite parts is toward the end, when Cole's last secret is revealed and he comes grobbling and begging Savannah to take him back and never leave him. Wow!! I loved it because it was Cole's breaking point and the last point of surrender to his insatiable need and commitment to Savannah, the love of his life. He finally stopped resisting and that made me very happy. Also, the epilogue was one of the sweetest---OMG seriously adorable and sweet---LOVED IT!
Narrator: I thought Josh Goodman's voice was very sexy and swoon worthy. What a great voice for Cole! Josh also did a good job with the female voices. He really enhanced the experience of this audiobook.
