LATEST BOOK BLURB
"A romp through the jungle filled with intrigue and suspense as two people find themselves not only running for their lives but also falling for each other. I felt like I was right there with Jason and DC through all their adventures in the Amazon. A very enjoyable read."
"The author provided me a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
I am an avid reader with romance and it's various sub-categories being one of my favorite genres. This book pulled me in right and the beginning and kept me engaged through the whole story. It is long enough to fully develop the plot and characters while still being short enough for a pretty quick read (so if you don't want to make a big time committment to a book right now - this is a great choice). The book had romance, it had action, it had a kick butt hero - hiding vulnerabilities of his own - and a lead female character that was strong and vulnerable at the same time. If you want something with a lot of surprises and plot twists this may not be the read for you, but if you are looking for a good romance with elements of action and suspense, a story that will bring a smile and make you hurt for the characters - as well as want to reach in and smack them (ok him) now and then, then this is a great choice. I thoroughly enjoyed the read!"
