Let me start this off with this is not your typical story and it completely enthralled me. The blurb is what got me to sign up to read this and I'm so glad that I did. Rachel is a twenty something with a dangerous past. She attends her 10 year high school reunion and bumps into the class nerd, who isn't a nerd anymore. Shane owns his own security business and is a total hunk. Rachel is trying to get over her past which included a former co-worker turned stalker. When Shane and Rachel become an item, Rachel's past comes back in fulk force. But was her past ever truly gone?
The only pitfall I had with this book was the speed in which Shane and Rachel's love happened. And in the grand scheme of things, it obviously was small on the list of things that made it so I disliked this book. I loved everything else about this story. The mystery of what happens next. The suspense of the whole story. It all culminates into a stunning ending you don't want to miss.
Just like Gillian Matthews, the heroine in her debut romance novel, The Reunion, Marina Martindale began her career as a graphic designer and artist, and several of her paintings have been featured in juried art shows. Over time, however, she discovered writing was her true life’s passion.
“I love creating conflicted characters,” says Martindale. “I think they’re more like the people we meet in real life. I also like the complexity of romance. It’s an opportunity to delve deep into the human condition and try to understand what it is that motivates us to make the choices in life that we make.”
Martindale draws her inspiration from her own real life experiences, as well as those of the people around her. The stories, however, are fiction.
“The path to true love is never an easy one,” adds Martindale. “Some are haunted by people from their past. Others have been deceived or betrayed by the people they trusted the most. We all make bad choices, even though we usually don’t realize it at the time. My stories are about the unintended consequences of those bad choices, how the characters resolve them, and how they grow and become better people as a result.”
Marina Martindale resides in Tucson, Arizona. In her spare time she enjoys music, traveling, photography, and cooking.
