Author: Shyla Colt

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Buy: Amazon

Savannah escaped a kidnapping but her best friend Clark—the man she secretly loved—didn’t. Guilt-ridden and changed after the event, she gives up her dream of teaching and earns a position in the F.B.I as a profiler. When she’s targeted by the very same kidnappers wishing to finish the job, she is armed with her skills, backed by her first love’s twin brother, and forced to revisit her demons when Clark’s ghost appears.

After his twin’s murder, Officer Carey Carr loses more than his brother. Savannah avoids him for a decade. Her return—and her steaming-hot body—stir brand new feelings in Carey. But Clark’s reappearance has Carey battling to control his primal desires around the woman his twin loved.

As Savannah and Carey, with Clark’s help, embark on a cruel game of cat and mouse with the kidnappers, the twins come to an understanding that involves Savannah and more pleasure than the three of them have ever dreamed.

While out on a date, Savannah and her best friend and secret love, Clark, get kidnapped. Savannah survives, but Clark isn’t as fortunate. The memories of that night haunt Savannah for many years to come, as she gives up her childhood dream and becomes an F.B.I. agent. She loses touch with Carey, Clark’s twin brother, and moves out of her home town.

But when the people who murdered Clark get back in touch with her, and it becomes clear they have their eyes set on her, she needs Carey’s help. Returning back to her home town brings back memories she’d rather forgotten, and when the unthinkable happens and Clark’s ghost shows up, Savannah isn’t sure if she’s dreaming at first or not.

The underlying mystery, with the kidnappers/murderers wanting Savannah and Carey and Clark trying to protect her, was pretty awesome. I didn’t like Clark-ghost though. I don’t know why, but I thought he was more annoying than interesting, and I would’ve preferred had it been just Carey and Savannah trying to get past their guilt and sorrow. Would’ve made for a stronger, more emotional read, in my opinion.

But Clark-ghost is there, and all in all, he’s not so bad. The story surrounding the relationship between the three of them is equally as interesting as the relationship itself. Savannah is a strong, opinionated woman, and Clark and Carey are both brave, strong and intelligent. There’s lots of romance and suspense. This is the kind of book that’s ideal for curling up in your bed and reading with the night light. It’s not scary, but there’s tons of suspense.
