Falling For Her
by Sandra Owens
Series: K2 Team, #3
Genre: Contemporary Romantic Suspense
Release Date: September 29, 2015
Known to the K2 Special Services team as “Saint,” Jamie Turner lives by his own strict rules to compensate for his past sins and the two-ton boulder taking residence in his heart. He doesn’t drink or smoke. He never swears. And he only dates nice, safe women until he meets Sugar Darling, the fill-in receptionist at K2. She’s as sweet as her name, but this wild woman is definitely trouble, with something to hide. He knows he should avoid her…but can he?
Sugar isn’t hiding something—she’s hiding everything. And K2 seems like the perfect place to lie low, thanks to the big, protective guys who work there. The drop-dead-handsome Saint makes her heart race, yet he keeps his distance. When Sugar’s traumatic past rises up to haunt her again, she desperately turns to Saint for help, and he has to decide what’s more important: playing it safe or risking everything for love.
Taken directly into action by the author, I loved how she executed the story to give us romance, military operations, a strong suspense quota and a story that held me glued to my seat right till the end. Sandra's writing style is engaging and she creates a realistic picture where I could visualize each and every action and feel the thrill of each moment.
Sugar and Saint look to be completely different from each other with Sugar appearing like an empty headed blonde and Saint acting all serious and intense. But wait till their masks fall off and then all that remains is vulnerability and a striking similarity between them. Both are tortured by events past and present, running from their past and stuck in self imposed prison. I loved how they slowly warmed upto each other and how the author brought their characters alive in my mind. She expertly developed their personalities and had me rooting for them soon enough.
I loved meeting the other members of the K2 Special Services Team and enjoyed travelling with them to their dangerous and adrenaline thumping missions. I look forward to meeting them again and am eager to read their stories too. I know I'll be picking up the previous books in this series soon.
Despite being part of a series, this book can be read as a standalone.
There are heartfelt emotions, an engaging and action filled story, an intense and warmth filled romance and plenty of suspense and anticipation in this book. A lovely experience, I give Falling For Her 4.5 out of 5 and recommend it to all lovers of romantic suspense. I enjoyed this book so much that I know I'll be checking out and reading the other books in this series and others by Sandra Owens soon.
I received the book from the author and the tour organizers from NetGalley and I am very thankful to them. The above review is my honest and unbiased opinion and in no way influenced.
Sandra is a 2013 Golden Heart® Finalist for her contemporary romance, CRAZY FOR HER. In addition to her contemporary romantic suspense novels, she writes Regency stories.
