4 out of 5 stars
This was a fun, action packed, suspenseful romance. The romance is a slow burn type but you can really start to feel the chemistry between them building. This was the first time I ever read a Nicole Blanchard book, but it most definitely won't be my last.
Gabriel is a retired Marine who now helps the coast guard when needed. Chloe works from a travel agency and has to take the ferry to head over to the island. As she's boarding the ferry a man with a gun is trying to take a little girl hostage. Chloe helps the little girl get free but ends up a hostage herself. The little girl just so happens to be Gabriel's daughter, so he volunteers himself to rescue her.
I really loved that Chloe wasn't your typical damsel in distress. She was tough! Gabe wasn't so bad himself, and was also a sweetheart.
I couldn't put this one down! I needed to know what happened so I read it all in one sitting. It had a lot of action and some violence (just as a warning). The suspense part takes up a lot of the story, so my only "negative" was that I would have liked just a little more time spent on them as a couple. I loved all of the characters we were introduced to and can't wait to read the rest in the series.
