Rating: 3 Cups
Rebecca Gailen is being stalked by a psychopath and it is all she can do to hang on to her sanity.
Charlie Stiles is the man Rebecca has been dating.
Eric Stiles is a cop, and Charlie’s brother. He had a one night stand with Rebecca and now cannot get her out of his head.
When Rebecca begins receiving a lot of gifts from an anonymous person, she begins getting annoyed at all the unwanted attention. When one of those gifts turns out to be something truly horrific, she knows this is more than just a secret admirer. As the gifts become more dangerous, and Rebecca begins receiving phone calls that are the stuff of nightmares, she is finally convinced by her friends to talk to the police. There is only one problem, Rebecca thinks she knows who the psychopath might be, and she has no intention of telling her friends or the police. Into this mess comes Eric, the man she had a one night stand with and has never been able to forget. To top it off, he is the brother of the man she is currently dating. This makes things very awkward for everyone. Eric does not want to hurt his brother, but he feels he has fallen for Rebecca and that they could have something special. Rebecca still has strong feelings for Eric as well, but she has been dating Charlie and does not want to hurt him by revealing she has slept with his brother. Will Rebecca and Eric have a chance to be together without hurting Charlie or will the psycopath get Rebecca or one of her loved ones before they can get together?
This is a well-written story that I enjoyed reading. The characters are easy to relate to, the love scenes are scorching and full of emotion, and the suspense will keep you on the edge of your seat. All in all it is a great story. My only problem was the ending, and that is why I could not give this book a higher rating. While I understand that Ms. Romine was trying to lead into the next book in the series, doing it with a major cliff hanger and absolutely no resolution left this reader feeling very disappointed and let down. Despite that disappointment, if you enjoy romantic suspense and can wait for the second book where hopefully there will be some resolution to the story line, then I definitely recommend Serenity Lost.
