The Wild Rose Press
Romantic Suspense Adventure
Rating: 3 Cups
When she started working for Wild and Wonderful, Holly Newman mistakenly believed she would have a cushy little desk job; unfortunately, it has been anything but. Facing her childhood fears is one thing, but being in Brazil is so far out of her comfort zone, she can barely think straight.
Trouble-shooting for Glenn Corp puts Jake Daniels right in his element, but even he needs a vacation once in a while. The Brazilian job is putting a bad taste in his mouth right from the start, and it is only about to get worse.
Following Jake into the Brazilian jungle is about the dumbest thing Holly has ever gotten herself into, but she just could not stand the thought of him thinking her incapable of handling it. It is her reports on the pipeline that he is questioning, and she wants to be there to prove their accuracy, not realizing at first how completely terrifying the situation is about to become. Jake grudgingly allows Holly to accompany him, mainly so he can spend more time with her, never imagining he is about to experience the most gut wrenching fear of his life. Holly’s ultimate fears come to life, but the biggest one of all is losing a man she has barely been given the chance to know.
Mayhem ensues for Jake and Holly, as Holly faces phobias at every turn, and Jake must keep her safe while trying to keep his heart out of the equation. Holly’s character is a virtual head case as she freaks over every little bump and squeak along the way, and while she does push past those fears, her theatrics tend to be quite tiresome. I found Jake’s patience with her to be well beyond the norm, and his sweet little endearments a trifle patronizing. All in all though, this is an entertaining read with plenty of exciting adventures to keep you interested.
