No sabía que esta historia es la primera de la serie Killer Instinct . Y me alegro de haber leído antes After the Dark porque Abduction no le llega ni a la suela de los zapatos.
Lo mejor ha sido el romance. Realmente me ha llegado y ha sido muy fácil conectar con esos dos personajes tan complicados, sinceros y sobre todo con tantos sentimientos a flor de piel. Desde la primera página sabía, o más bien, quería que estuviesen juntos, aunque tambi ...more

I am loving this series and would definitely recommend this book and series to readers
Strong heroine, good suspense, lame hero.
The reason why he left her 10 years ago was not enough. He hurt her.
2nd chance is my less favorite romance trope, but I like CE as author.
I loved this book. There was so much going on hardly any down time before something happened. I loved that there was that not onl ...more
Quick Note: This is listed as book 1, but there’s a prequel called The Gathering Dusk, and there seem to be more books in this series, maybe both from Harlequin and self-published, so I’m not entirely sure of the order. I mention that because the prequel and the second? third? book have the same heroine/hero. My guess is the prequel is introducing us to the cast. I just bought it and I’ll update this after I read it.

As I've said before, I love a good second chance romance and the love story in "Abduction" has potential but gets bogged down in regret on steroids. The thriller element is only slightly more satisfying. The field of suspects is so narrow, it doesn't leave room for very much suspense. Character development put too much emphasis on touting the importance of Jill being an FBI agent, as if that endowed her with super powers. And the build up on Hayden's SEAL background was almost unneces ...more
Tho I have no idea why there's a couple kissing on the cover of Gathering Dust, but I suppose perhaps it gives way to what's to come! This had once been a series of 3, but t ...more
