*** MY REVIEW ***
This was my first Sharon Hamilton book and I can’t say I was disappointed. The is more than your average good guys against the bad guys, sex in the jungle, life over death survival book.
I have to be honest and say the first few pages almost turned me off of continuing. We’re introduced to a pot smoking, sex-driven, young man who doesn’t give a crap about much of anything. But then we learn than his Navajo grandfather is dying, and though he hates the thought of going back to the res, Danny makes it in time to say goodbye.
Disgusted with letting his family down, he hooks up with what he thinks will be a one night stand, but turns out to be his destiny instead—if the voices in his head are to be believed.
The book leads us on a path of self-discovery and emotional growth on both the H/H parts. Though there are many hurdles for Danny and Luci to overcome, in the end true love wins.
