My friends say Hunter Cayman’s dangerous.
They say he's a threat to everyone in town.
I’m not so sure.
As he stands before me in this crowded club with the lights shining around us, I catch something good under Hunter’s dark facade. Something decent and profound.
I don’t know who or what to believe.
But I will find out the truth.
Aeris Thorne is expecting a restful vacation in the remote town of Deep Cove. But on a stormy night, she meets the alluring and mysterious Hunter Cayman, and her life takes an exhilarating turn.
Aeris is both drawn to him and determined to find out what he’s hiding. It’s clear Hunter has found success with the high-security lab on his vast estate. But what Aeris doesn’t know is that he’s tormented by a secret: the truth behind his research.
As he and Aeris are drawn together, the walls he’s built to protect himself threaten to crumble. At the same time, she begins to wonder if she’s found the key to unraveling her own tragic past. When Aeris’s life is threatened, Hunter is forced to make an impossible decision about her future—one that could change everything.
This starts out and pulls you in straight away. Aeris and her friends are just standing around, outside a club when she sees Dr. Hunter Cayman, and is pulled to him. She doesn’t move but wants to go to him and is struck by that pull. Her father hates Hunter, which makes the allure all the more interesting. Not that Aeris is a bad girl, just inquisitive, which could be worse!
While her father is away she finds a box that needs to be delivered to Hunter. She’s even more intrigued because she has seen them talking. She cannot stop her indulgence and decides to deliver the box herself. This was my favorite part. She’s curious and decides she is going to find out what is going on.
First of all that cover! So freaking cool. I wanted to read this before I even saw the synopsis! I also love the main character’s name. Hopefully I’m saying it right, like Heiress. It stands out and helps me to remember her character.
Interestingly, there is mystery and thriller here but there is also a sci fi feel. This can go very wrong. Too many elements in one book, but I thought this was handled in such a way that I never felt overwhelmed with what was happening. It was not too much and actually the plot flowed nicely.
While I really enjoyed the book, it was a little short of awesome for me. I’m not huge into mysteries or sci fi, and while it did work very well, I think maybe it also threw me a little. Even saying that, I enjoyed the twists and the relationship between Hunter and Aeris.
Very interesting story. I can see so many people enjoying this! Definitely recommended.
