“Trouble gets closer with every beat of their hearts “
“Forevermore” Book 2
Lucas Morgan wants to know the cause of the hit-and-run accident that killed his grandmother, and he s certain the truth is locked inside the head of India Leone an interior designer apparently suffering an all-too-convenient case of amnesia.
Determined to either trip her up in a lie, or wait for her memories to return, Lucas offers India a job at one of the luxury hotel properties he s developing. He never thought he d wind up falling for the woman at the top of his suspect list.
India isn t so sure herself how she ended up at the wrong place at the wrong time. Until her memories return, how can she possibly move on with her life? The police say she s innocent, but too many questions linger.
Desperate to get away, she seizes Lucas s offer, never expecting to fall in love with him. Or that he would be keeping secrets that could not only break her heart, but cost her life.
“Warning: Contains a woman caught between her heart and a gap in her memory, and a man waiting to pounce on any hole in her story. Never expecting that all that waiting will lead to some pouncing of a different kind “”
Lucas’ grandmother was the light of his life. So, when he comes upon an accident and sees her lifeless body on the ground, he is completely devastated. He hears someone crying and finds his grandmother’s car hanging over an embankment with someone else in the driver’s seat. He pulls the woman free and the car goes crashing over the edge!
The mysterious driver, India, does not remember anything from a few weeks before the accident. Things begin to unravel and Lucas and India find that they have a past history, together. Lucas wants to find out why and how India was involved in his grandmother’s death, but he is falling in love with her while discovering things aren’t as simple and clear cut as he had hoped.
I enjoyed the suspense and mystery surrounding this story. No way did I suspect who did it or why! But, that was about the only thing I enjoyed out of this entire book. Lucas was deceitful and cunning. He lied about who he was to India and then wanted her to forgive him for it. He tricked her into being hired as the company’s interior decorator to find out more information about her. How can he be angry at anything she withheld from him? As for India, she was an ok character, but her use of the phrase “not going there” every time she had a thought got annoying. I understand she had amnesia and things came back to her, but ugh. Enough was enough.
Overall, it was an enjoyable story, but the characters lacked enough good qualities to make me not care.
