Abigail Forsythe’s life hasn’t been easy lately. Still, if there’s one thing guaranteed to take her mind off an empty bank account and abandoned dreams, it’s a naked man locked in a plane’s cargo hold. A very big, incredibly gorgeous naked man. And when instinct prompts her to free him, Abigail must rely on this stranger for survival…a stranger who leaves her thrumming with need every time they touch.
Tomasso Notte knows he’s found his life mate in Abigail. Now he just has to hold on to her. They’re miles from civilization, hunted by his kidnappers. Abigail has no idea of Tomasso’s abilities, or of how intensely pleasurable their unique connection can be. But he’s about to show her, beginning with one wild, hot, immortal night…
Tomasso Notte is being kidnapped – for what reason he has no idea. He is drugged and put into a cage then onto a plane. On that plane is Abigail. She’s with her friend, who is the pilot of the plane, just so they can have a little vacation. Abs needs one desperately as she’s been taking care of her mother – who just recently died.
The men who chartered the plane stated that they wanted no one on the plane but the pilot, but Abs was already on it. She hides in the cargo hold but when she looks under the tarp and discovers a naked man with an IV she’s shocked. She takes out the IV and helps him but she wasn’t prepared for him to jump out of the plane with her in his arms.
Tomasso gets Abigail safely to a beach but he really has no idea where he is. Abigail had hit her head on the way out of the plane so she’s not with it. Tomasso needs to get to a phone to contact the Argeneau’s and to get blood. Unfortunately there are no villages in site and he has no idea if the kidnappers will come after him. He wants to keep Abigail safe because he’s a nice person but also because he’s realized that she’s his life mate.
When the pair finally get to civilization – after some pretty funny things happening – Tomasso is able to contact his people and get what he needs. Unfortunately the kidnappers aren’t about to give up on their quest to kidnap immortals.
This was another cute story in the Argeneau series. I thought that Abigail and Tomasso were very sweet together and I loved their interactions. Tomasso, as we’ve read in previous books in the series, is a huge guy but he isn’t a brute. He’s kind and caring and I loved how well he treated Abigail.
Abigail was in med school at one point in her life before she dropped out to take care of her mother. She is a care-taker by nature and likes to take charge of a situation. When Tomasso pulls some stupid stunts to stop himself from getting excited when he’s with her (prior to reaching civilization) Abigail is there to take care of him. It’s so ridiculous but hilarious at the same time. I also loved how Abigail handled the whole immortal thing. She realized quickly that she wasn’t a soulless monster and dealt with it. I liked that about her because she was so practical about it all.
The thing I didn’t care for about the story is that there just wasn’t a ton of depth to it. Yes, it was a fun book and I understand that’s what it was supposed to be but I just wanted more. I guess I’m greedy that way.
The story was a nice addition to the series. We got to hear a bit more about why the immortals are being kidnapped (only a bit though!) and then we were left hanging without knowing anything in depth. I guess I’ll just have to wait and read the next book in the series to find out the info – which definitely won’t be a chore. 🙂
