MY REVIEW. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
I’ve attempted to write this review for days, without being satisfied with any of them.
I want to do this justice, for it most assuredly deserves that at the very least.
Two authors combine their amazing talents in Invasion, so I expected the book to be good. But good doesn’t even come close.
Other reviewers have utilized all the adjective’s, all I can add is that the plotting and intricacy is as close to perfection as it gets. Utterly riveting, and, superbly, demandingly, erotic. This story hands you no life-lines, it invades your emotions, and heightens the senses until you are left exposed like a raw nerve ending, dreading the chill of drinking the ice-water, but knowing you will be parched with thirst without it; it is just that compelling.
The character of David Hearse (Code name Bogeyman) has amnesia, but the skills he discovers that he possesses lead him to the inescapable conclusion that whatever he once was it was no ordinary man. He is a darkly brooding, intense and isolated man, a man with no past, no future, and an uncertain present.
Adrift and in need of a safe place to hide, he breaks in to a house and makes himself a haven in the basement. His fascination for the absent owner grows by the day. He searches through her home and invades her life, and as he begins to discovers her secrets, his own begin to surface.
Carly returns and his need to know her dominates his thoughts, and his actions follow through.
Carly is damaged, badly so. Hiding behind a sweet smile is a woman who has suffered humiliation, and brutality from her ex. Ah, yes, the ex …Meet the character all of you who read the book will come to hate, Mark Carmichael; I wished him a brutal death just paragraphs in to his portrayal.
David and Carly belong together; it soon becomes apparent that they are each-others’ forever.
But forces are at work to make certain that can’t be achieved.
To reveal more would be unfair, suffice it to say it borders on brilliant.
It will provoke you, shake you … and above all else, it will linger in your psyche long after you read the unexpected and compelling conclusion.
This book is more than just a ‘must read’ folks. It has set the bar immeasurably high for all that follow.
