This story was really interesting with a wonderful hero but the heroine was disappointing. I didn't like the way she treated the hero when he needed her so it totally spoiled the book for me.

4 Stars ~ Linzi married the boy-next-door, her childhood sweetheart and they were very happy. Until a motorcycle accident caused a brain injury which changed Barty forever. Gone was the sweet gentle young man; in his place, was a hostile abusive man. Barty knew he was different and he always regretted his violent outbursts. Linzi loved the young man he had been, and it was that love that kept forgiving Barty. Linzi took a job for a construction mogul, and though it often meant she had to work la ...more
This one was certainly different. It might have received a higher rating from me just for being so different if it hadn't been for the fact that it was one of those where you were constantly waiting for the other shoe to fall. I found that I didn't like the heroine much for how she failed to stand by the hero. The hero though was pretty great. Serious spoiler ahead. (view spoiler)

On the whole it was decent.

24yo secretary becomes uncomfortable when her boss of 6 months Hero suddenly starts asking her personal questions especially about her 4-year marriage. She does her best to keep things formal with Hero, given that her unpredictably-violent husband has already leveled accusations about their relationship. Their attraction to each other & her husband's abuse heightens to the point of murder. She is anguished by it all & leaves town, rejecting Hero's pleas for her to stand by him during the ...more
Too much insanity in too few pages for me, I think. Abuse, helicopter crashes and explosions, attempted murder, death, prison sentence, and a horse riding accident to top it off. Exhausting and not really satisfying.
A more appropriate title for this book could have been "Crazy Love" because of all the drama. I was engrossed all the way through. But my feelings for it are mixed mainly because Ritchie deserved a stronger woman than the one he received in Linzi. If the ending had clarified Linzi's feelings better, it might have improved my opinion of her.

Ritchie was wonderful. He loved Linzi so much and sacrificed a lot on her behalf. The poor guy was cheated even at the end because Linzi never told Ritchie s

This novel had everything in it, it was pretty fucking nuts but in a good way.
Blaze King
It would have been a 4 star read if I hadn't guessed from the inception of the suspence what they revealed in the end. There was also the matter of the hero's name, Ritchie sounded like a boy's name, not a man who was in the position of power and command.

But the story, writing, and the hero himself were all great. Good work by C.L :)

Horrible to me that it took so little to ease her guilt in the end.

2.5 Stars
a rather interesting book about a battered wife, her employer, and the husband who meets a sticky end, with a rather unexpected twist at the end regarding who wielded the fatal candlestick.
