When Greer Addison finds her future husband in bed with another woman, she runs…right into the arms of dark and dangerous Raphael Marcel. Angry and hurt, she throws caution to the wind
and spends a hot night with the sexy security specialist. But when her fiancé is found dead, Greer becomes the main suspect of a crime she can’t remember.
Raphael is stunned and suspicious when Greer shows up on his doorstep claiming she’s carrying his baby. Worse, she’s the target of a stalker bent on making her pay for a
murder she doesn’t recall. As Raphael begins to trust Greer, they must race against the clock to uncover a killer.
Because Greer’s memory is returning...
This book was AWESOME!!!! Nettie and I just hit a goldmine. I loved Raphael and want one of him in my life. This book started off juicy. I have read some book where the female character's father was a douche but Greer's dad topped the chart. Goodness this man should find the bottom of a bottle of poison. (Evil laugh) Any who, Raphael is entertaining from beginning to end. At no point will you get bored reading this book. Raphael Marcel is sex walking and exactly what Greer needs in her life. After finding her fiancé having sex with another woman, Greer makes the best decision for herself. Unfortunately, her father did not agree. Fast forward to Greer meeting Raphael for the second time at a bar that ended with them banging in the back seat of his SUV. That screen was FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC! This was the beginning a roller-coaster ride.
Greer has to make a choice of what is best for her life. Do what makes her happy, Raphael, or do what's best for the family. Did I mention her dad was a douche. He wanted Greer to still marry dude after finding him under another chick. But to put insult to injury, her dad also didn't believe that she did not kill the fiancé or just didn't care. The family name means everything to dear ole dad. So after the whole backseat gymnastics and finding her fiancé dead in her apartment, Greer finds herself pregnant by Raphael. Awesome right? No. Greer has a stalker that knows about the baby and believes her to be the murder.
YOU WILL NOT GUESS THE STALKER! The ending had me screaming and in tears because I did not see this coming. Naima Simone wrote her ass off in this book. I feel bad because Raphael is actually the third book in this series but I haven't read the only books. This is so fixable. Amazon here I come because chickies I HAVE GOT to read the other books. Luckily, the storylines are so that missing the other books made no difference. WHEW, otherwise I would have been very lost.
Overall this book got 5 notes and 5 flames because it was freaking awesome!
