Hush [Mass Market Paperback]

I've finished "Hush" the first book in her new Lodestone trilogy by Cherry Adair.

Product Description

National bestselling author Cherry Adair introduces an edgy, sexy new suspense series with this exhilarating international tale of hide and seek.

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.

My Review:

I highly recommend this book if you like fast paced and non stop action from the first page to the last page.

Storyline:  Zachary Stark is a playboy. He has made his money with his brother and business partner setting up a mega popular online search engine.  He just wants to play and take death defying risks in the name of adventure and seduce willing women. Getting the sexy woman he met in a bar back to her hotel room in the Venezuelan countryside isn't hard. Their night of passion quickly becomes a nightmare when they are kidnapped along with Zak's brother Gideon.

Characters:  Zak is a very sexy hero who feels responsible for his wife's death and fights his intense attraction to Acadia.  He at times was an arrogant jerk to Acadia and didn't think he needed his help.  Boy did she prove him wrong!!

Acadia at the beginning of the book you get the feeling she was a wimp but she was quite resourceful with her vest that had 28 secret pockets and even a tent in her pants legs.

Romance:  The romance between Zak and Acadia is very hot and sizzling!  Though I just didn't like how the hero and heroine thought about sex all the time while the bad guys were after them!  

Killer(s):  The killers were truly vile people and they definitely had no remorse on who they killed to get their way


Thanks Maylene from Simon and Schuster Canada for sending me this book to review, greatly appreciated!
