Lost # 2
By: Cynthia Eden
Releasing April 28th, 2015
In the second seductive Lost novel from New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Eden, an obsessed Last Option Search Team agent goes looking for trouble—and finds her in the Big Easy.
Dean Bannon comes to New Orleans for one reason only: to track down a missing sixteen-year-old girl. That’s before he meets the drop-dead gorgeous con artist who makes him want to lose his legendary control.
With her past, Emma Castille doesn’t claim to be psychic. She just notices things other people don’t. Like the fear in a runaway’s eyes-or the pain in an ex-FBI agent’s heart. Her chemistry with Dean is blistering, but Emma follows her passion . . . not someone else’s orders.
Then a madman breaks into Emma’s home and leaves a twisted message: “You’re next.” Now Dean refuses to let her out of his sight until he pries every last secret from her full, sexy lips. And suddenly Emma’s aching to give him everything he wants.
Emotional, sensual, action packed thrill ride, that pulled me right in from the first words.
The story has such an eerie, scary, and a bit creepy start, and that tone holds through the book. The atmosphere is SO intense, when the past demons of the characters, as well as the current evil in the city, are running on their heels.
The connection between Emma and Dean is fierce, it's so immediate, it feels like they have known each other forever. The mistrust and doubt between them at the beginning clouds the view of each other, but the attraction has such a strong pull, they seem to be helpless against it.
Emma is a refreshing character to get to know, her ability to read people, the way she pays attention, is amazing, admirable. She is bold, saucy, and sassy, a person who has learned to rely only to herself, for a very good reason.
Dean is smart, dark, and protective, with secrets of his own. With Emma, he is letting his control go, and learning about dreams of a future, he never even thought about before.
The madness and evil are constantly present in the story. Part of the tale is told from the villain's point of view, his hateful, heinous thoughts giving me the chills. The fear he creates around him was nearly suffocating at times.
The LOST team is stuck, in what seems like an ongoing nightmare, a hell, a tangled web of dead bodies, motives, and the victims are just piling up. Yet with the brilliant writing from the author, I found myself bursting into a laughter out loud, with the subtle humorist slip from a character at unexpected places and times.
Absolutely brilliant, gloomy, sensual story, that I wanted to inhale at one sitting
