Harlequin Intrigue are usually pretty good books in my opinion. After I read the summary, I knew I had to read this book. I figured it would be a good read.
Detective Ashton(Ash)Kendall finds out he will be a dad the same day he finds out his parents killer is being freed. How will he deal with a double blow?
Rachel Stevens is a darn good DNA specialist. She, unknowingly, is the reason Ash's parents presumed killer is freed and now she is pregnant with Ash's baby. How will she deal with hitting Ash with the double blow?
Ash is a regular casanova, or in his case Ashanova, as they call him. He never lets a woman get close. Rachel isn't the clingy type. At first I thought, oh boy another mushy romance with a mystery twist. Boy was I wrong! This book is more mystery and a little bit of romance (but not the mushy kind). I thought the book had just the right amount of both in it. Mallory Kane, in my opinion, did a great job with the characters and the plot. I could feel Ash's anger or worry when I was reading. I could feel the love Rachel felt for the unborn baby.
I wasn't feeling very well the night I was reading it but I found it very hard to put down. My husband literally had to take my kindle away from me when he saw that I could barely keep my eyes open. As soon as I got up the next morning, I had to finish the book. I just had to know what was going to happen next and how the book would end!
If you like Harlequin, I would recommend this.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
