Crystal’s Review:

                I’m not sure what I would do if I was in the bathtub and someone was pointing a gun at me.  Ok that’s probably not the complete truth.  I would more than likely pee myself, but since I was in the bathtub they would never know 😉  Well that is what happens to Hannah, and I have to say she is crazy strong and not in the physical sense.   Even though she is scared for her life she makes sure that Mac, or John as she knows him, doesn’t realize that.  She shows her strength and compassion when she gives her life to helping others in need.
                Mac is confused as to what is going on, and why there is a woman in his rental.  Having been in the war, he is paranoid about everyone and everything.  I really liked how Danielle wrote his character.  You could tell that he has PTSD and was freaking out over everything, but I think that she wrote him very well.  You could tell his soft side though, when he did that amazing thing for Hannah.  I think I even fell for him a little bit then.
                The story overall was really well done, and it didn’t leave you wanting for anything.  My only issue with the book is how Hannah was able to get past that Mac had lied to her.  She didn’t put up that much of an argument when the truth finally came out.  There were no cliffhangers, which is always a great thing in my book.  Well there was a little one, sortaish.  It would be nice to find out more about what happens to Mac and Hannah after the story ends, but there isn’t anything that leads you to another book.

With evil lurking on every corner, can two veritable
strangers survive on love alone?
Chelsea Reid shares one sinful night with a delicious stranger and she winds up
pregnant. Disowned by her parents and forced to leave university, she accepts
an offer from her boss, Hannah Magnus-Dunlop, to stay with her and her family.


Christiaan ‘Tiaan’ Carstens had everything going for him. In the blink of an
eye, he lost it all, including most of his mind, tortured in an American run
facility because he didn’t die when a rogue politician wanted him to. His
former colleague Mackenzie Dunlop extended an open invitation to come back and
visit him in Vancouver. The very last thing Tiaan expects to see up north is
sweet Chelsea – and his infant son.


The memories of that one magical night they spent together acting as the glue
that holds him together, Tiaan attempts to string the rest of the pieces of his
life into some form of semblance, while trying to figure out if Chelsea even
wants him in her life.

Crystal’s Review:

                Have
you ever met a character that you really really liked and then you realized he
was a complete jerkface?  Yeah that
happened with me and Christiaan, I still have a love/hate relationship with
him.  Even thinking his name while I type
this up gives me mixed feelings. (Yes I just rolled my eyes in case you were
wondering.)
                Anyway
this story was really good on a few levels.
I enjoyed the fact that even though this story is about Chelsea and
Christiaan we got to catch up with Mac and Hannah.  That was great to me, and they didn’t take
over the story at all.  They were just
there to help support their friends.
                Chelsea
was an amazing character, even though I completely loved Hannah in Captive at
Christmas, I think that I love Chelsea more than her.  Going through what she had went through, and
still coming out on top was just a great thing for her.  She showed strength where she needed too and
was still fighting to keep herself on top.
                Christiaan
worked his way back out the hate part of our relationship a little bit after
finding out more about his past.  I can’t
imagine going through what he went through, I wouldn’t want too on any
level.  Even though he had his bad
moments, when he knew he needed to step up to the plate he did without any real
complaints.
                The
relationship between the two of them was really good.  The sex? Oh the sex was freaking hawt!  I mean really really hawt.  Overall I do think that including the drama
that this book had, it was still a really good read.  I can’t wait to read more into this series!
