THE WRONG TARGET
When Trinity Miller's attacked by a man who mistakenly believes she's Mason Gains's girlfriend, the reclusive prosthetic maker is forced from seclusion to rescue her. And he soon learns someone's determined to get information on one of his clients--information they're willing to kill for.
Now the former army pilot has to find a way to take down the men on their trail...and make sure Trinity survives.
When Trinity arrived at Mason's isolated home to convince him to help her friend's son, her plans didn't include going on the run with him. But Trinity must work with Mason to outwit their pursuers...or risk losing both their lives.
From the very start of the story, the author paints a picture from the horror movies and worst nightmares, bringing up the tension high, and the fear factor aloft. The eerie, dark forest road, with no one around, late at night, raining, and a woman driving alone to an unsure destination... The creepy and morbid scene just escalates, the danger imminent, the events just adding to the peril Trinity Miller is in making the story addictive.
The suspense and action in the story are straightforward, constant, and deadly. Even though the main culprit isn't known, the characters themselves are pretty much clued into the reasons and motivations behind the attacks.
Trinity Miller is a fun character, I really liked her. She is at a crossroads with her life. The future she had planned and hoped for didn't work out, her disappointing former relationship gave her a restless mind and made her evaluate her life goals, seeking God's guidance with her future. She has a great sense of humor, she is resilient, kind, caring, with a deep sense of loyalty. Even though she kept acting without thinking, getting her into trouble, she also was able to think under duress and get herself out of the hurdles as well.
Mason Gains has chosen to live in the secluded house, on the outskirts of the small town. The pain from the past, the losses he had faced, and the betrayals he had encountered had guided his desire to keep at the distance of the most in the society, teaching him to only trust in God at the moment of uncertainty. But he wasn't an unpleasant character, quite the opposite. Deep down he was very much like Trinity, with the loyalty, kindness, caring, and toughness, and a great sense of humor. His nearly instant attraction to Trinity was endearing, he wasn't about to hide it, and he was willing to do anything to keep her safe and out of harm's way.
The riveting action with the danger and fear created a spellbinding vacuum that clued me into my kindle. Adding to that the budding sweet and tender feelings between the hero and heroine, the loyalty of friends and family, and the unexpected humorous moments that had me cracking up at the dodgiest times made this book unputdownable for me, reading till the dawn. I really do enjoy this author's writing, she gets me every single time!
