"Fans of romantic suspense will enjoy the twists and reversals that Zanetti puts her protagonists through."--Publishers Weekly His Secrets Can Destroy Her
From the moment Josie laid eyes on sexy, mysterious Shane Dean, she was in love. Their desire ignited a passionate affair, and within weeks, Shane had slipped a ring on her finger. It seemed her every fantasy was coming true . . . until her new husband disappeared without a trace. Now, two years and one broken heart later, Josie is shocked when the hospital calls: Shane has been found . . . at a crime scene with no memory of how he got there.
Her Love Can Save HimShane can't remember the blue-eyed angel at his bedside-or who he even is-but he knows something isn't right. His hearing is razor sharp, his physical strength incredible, and the urge to protect Josie overwhelming. For powerful enemies are hunting him, and Josie is the key to discovering why. As Shane struggles to unravel his past, dangerous new truths come to light. Can he protect the only woman he's ever loved? And can Josie trust a man she thought she knew-one who carries such a deadly secret?
I have a strong aversion to romantic suspense. I can rarely suspend disbelief enough to enjoy the implausibility of the suspense plot with the romance. As a result, I try to stay away from them. I started this one because I thought it was a paranormal romance. Something about the description made me think it featured shifters. I was wrong about that, but not about the suspense not working for me.
My problem with the book begins and ends with the heroine. She’s a total idiot. She lets everyone walk all over her. She’s supposed to be some tough chick, but she never thought for herself. Considering the way her husband, her best male friend and the detective working on her case all evaded her questions, lied to her and ordered her around I figured she’d eventually get tired of it. Alas, no. She just took it. And took it. And kept taking it until the end of the book.
Add into that a ridiculous plot full of more holes than an entire pound of swiss cheese slices and my head was ready to explode. And that was before the heroine decided she was supertough and could take care of herself against trained assassins.
The premise was good and I am curious about one of the brothers, so I may try the next book. Hence the reason I gave this 2 stars instead if 1.
