Jack Wylie is tall, dark, handsome and brave – he’s everything you’d want in a kidnapper. Ex-cop Jack Wylie is a born protector, tormented by the day he misjudged a criminal and his life took a tragic turn. Now he’s on a mission to kidnap a woman to help her overcome a fear of being tied up. He’s been told by his psychologist brother to keep up the game until the woman gives him the sign. But there has been a big mistake. Jack has accidentally abducted the feisty and beautiful Molly Rhoades – a newly arrived local TV reporter who has secrets of her own. And she doesn’t know the sign. After a dangerous and unlikely meeting, Jack and Molly find themselves consumed by sexual tension, but things get even more complicated when Molly finds out that Jack is engaged to the local Councilwoman Amanda Everett, a ruthless career climber determined to succeed no matter what the cost. But why did Jack kidnap Molly in the first place? Who is pulling the strings in this perverted puppet show? Jack vows to protect Molly until he finds out the truth, but the layers of deception and vengeance run deeper than he could have ever imagined.
Why it Kicks Ass… by Kyra
I’m a sucker for bossy, protective alpha males who can be compassionate to a fault, and Jack Wylie fit this bill to a “T”. I also love a determined heroine, one who doesn’t instantly buckle at the first signs of adversity, and Molly Rhoades was a terrific fit for that as well. Spunky and determined, she has a knack for finding herself in the wrong place at the right time. Repeatedly.
Ellis weaves a wonderfully twisted web throughout this romantic suspense, and kept me guessing until the very end. Of course, that the book is set in my hometown and I could picture several of the crime scene locations was an added bonus. 😉
If you’re itching for a great, steamy romantic suspense with plenty of twists and turns, Natalie S. Ellis’ FEAR FOR HIRE should definitely go on your TBR list.
