Speak to Me of Abduction Reviews
A review for The Romance Reviews.Lillian Grant has another hit with SPEAK TO ME OF ABDUCTION. A gripping plot with excellent writing and dialogue as well as very memorable characters make this one impossible to put down.Charlene is stuck in Rio. She was backpacking around the world when she ran out of money. She was struggling to earn enough money to get back home when she's approached to do a movie role with American movie hunk, Jonathon Devereaux. However, things go terribly wrong when he's abducted during the filming. Charlene reaches out to Jonathon's brother, Jacob, who is the reclusive older version of his brother. But she's not expecting to be so attracted to him.Jacob knows what happens when you let people get to close--he has the terrible memories and pain to prove it, so when the Australian woman comes to him for help finding his brother, he tries to stay away. But he's drawn to her against his better judgment. When she's abducted too, he has to figure out the mysterious circumstances behind his brother's and Charlene's disappearances before he loses them both.This book was fantastic. The plot was suspenseful and kept me guessing. I was constantly trying to figure out the angle of why Jonathon disappeared. Even after knowing the "who", the "why" was elusive, and it kept me glued to my kindle.The characters in the book were definitely memorable. Jacob was tortured but sexy, although he drove me crazy running hot and cold with Charlene throughout the book. Charlene, I thought, had a lot of guts traveling around the world by herself, trying to find out her place in the world. I loved how she wasn't afraid to go after Jacob when she knew he was what she wanted. Although she was younger than him by more than a decade, I felt that she was more mature than Jacob more than a few times during the story. Jonathon seemed like a superficial playboy, but there was a lot more to him than that, and I look forward to reading more about him in the next book.The chemistry was certainly turned up to HOT in this book. I loved the way that Charlene and Jacob tried so hard to stay away from each other but couldn't. It was so steamy. The ending was sweet and left open the possibilities for Jonathon's book, and I really want to see him fall in love.So, a strong, suspenseful plot, characters I loved, and intense chemistry came together to make this a fantastic read. SPEAK TO ME OF ABDUCTION is the first in the Reel to Real series, and I can't wait to see what's going to happen next with the Devereaux family.This is my second read by Lillian Grant, and this is the second one I've had a blast reading. She's new on the scene but I think she's got an excellent future ahead of her. If her first two books are any indication, she's definitely an author to watch!
A very smexy read. I loved how Charlene rebuffed Jonathan at every turn, which was just priceless. But she couldn't ignore Jacob. And Jacob wasn't helping... he kept pushing her away and I wanted to smack him! Of course, this all turned out OK, so I'm good with that. The suspense was good... trying to figure out what the heck was going on was kinda fun. One thing that bothered me about this was the lack of protection. They knew each other less than a week, and he was a movie star for pete's sake. She had been traveling the world for who knows how long. There's no way each other could know anything about the other's sexual experience, but there was no question about it -- just no condoms. Sure, it's passionate, and they were quite into each other, but not even a question about birth control? And then they're wondering why she's throwing up at the end of the book? Hellooooo.... no birth control!! But the story was great, it was very hot... lots of tension leading up to Jacob finally giving into his desires. Fun story.
I finished this book last night. I read it in two sittings because I could not put it down. I love a good mystery and this book certainly had one. Jonathan was abducted while filming a scene with Charlene. Little did she know it was all a set up and that Jonathan would be abducted. In the process of trying to find Jonathan she found his brother Jacob who was very reclusive. As the story went on the sexual tension between Charlene and Jacob was so fun to watch. Jacob would get Charlene all fired up and then walk away. He just couldn't allow his feelings to be hurt again. But there were some funny moments while reading about their "misery". When they do finally get together, and Jacob let himself feel again, the pages were steaming. For those who like a great romance along with a very well written Mystery you will love this book.
Who doesn't love a hunky Hollywood hero who falls for the regular ole girl next door? If that's your bag, then SPEAK TO ME OF ABDUCTION should be right up your alley.Charlene is hard up for cash, so she takes a minor role in an action movie thinking it would be a quick way to make some money so she can get back home, but fate throws a monkey wrench into her plans when the star of the move suddenly goes missing. Honestly, I thought this was going to be a fairly predictable plot with an ending any fool could see coming from a mile away, but I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of suspense and the romantic build-up wasn't so bad either - HOT!
A great storyline coupled with strong writing. I really enjoyed this book. The kidnapping plot isn't obvious, the attraction between the hero and heroine is. Just enough heat, just enough spice, just enough action to keep me turning the pages, and the sex had my wife smiling and squirming in her chair when she read it.
When Charlene finds herself stranded in Rio, she never expects to end up starring in a Hollywood movie opposite a heartthrob...much less play a role in his kidnapping!Ms. Grant fills the story with twists and turns as she turns up the heat. I read this romantic suspense in one sitting and then read it again.
Wonderful book! Hot too!
