Hush by Cherry Adair (thoughts)

From the back cover:

"A reckless adventure in a deadly paradise.

Thrill seekers Zakary and Gideon Stark travel the globe in search of extreme adventure, but a trip to Venezuela to jump off the world’s highest falls catapults them into a perilous game of life or death—where they don’t know the rules.

A one-night stand that will change his life forever.

Kidnapped with a woman Zak knows nothing about, the brothers are held prisoner deep in the jungle. A risky, death defying escape separates them and nearly claims Zak’s life . . . until his recovery reveals a baffling new sixth sense."

My Thoughts:

Sounds interesting, right?? I must say that it definitely was and I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. One of the things that I enjoyed most about the story was the fast-paced, edge of your seat atmosphere that the author created. This book was such a page-turner that there were times when I literally had to stop and slow myself down so that I wouldn't miss anything. The action in the novel starts from the very beginning and doesn't let up until the very end. The constant danger mixed with romance made for a winning combination. I liked that I never knew what was going to happen next. The two main characters were very enjoyable and I was rooting for them from the very beginning. I loved that they constantly tried to resist the feelings that they had for each other until they couldn't hold out any longer. It helped to make the book that much more interesting, and I felt that this book was the perfect blend of romance and suspense. The book was a bit corny at a few different points but rather than detracting from the story, it made me laugh and I couldn't help but like the book even more. There was a point during a sexual scene where the author is describing how well endowed Zak was and I found myself giggling. And I thought to myself, "Did she really just compare that to that???" I liked that the author could make laugh while reading and that everything wasn't so serious the entire time. The ending of the book was completely unexpected and I didn't see it coming whatsoever. I was blown away. I literally felt my jaw drop even though I felt that the author did a great job of wrapping it up.

I really enjoyed reading this book and although this was my first time reading this author it will definitely not be my last! This is probably one of the best romantic suspense books that I've read in a long time and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Very enjoyable :)

Disclosure: I was sent this book in exchange for an honest review as part of Gallery & Pocket Books Romance Blog Tour. I'm a day late, my apologies!

  3. I don't normally read romance suspense but this book sounds too good to pass up! I'm adding it to my tbr list!
