I typically don’t enjoy a deception or amnesia tropes, but it is Jemma Westbrook and I trust her writing. This one works well for me because the deception doesn’t last long, and the amnesia is believable. Jamison is a man who holds himself back from everyone. He lets them in to a point, but still holds his true self and feelings close to the vest.
Sadie wakes up not knowing where she is, or what has happened in the past two years. Jamison and the rest of the Alaksa Security team are wondering just truly who Sadie is. Is she good, or is she bad? Because of the circumstances of their meeting they question whether or not she is on their side. These two have an instant connection, but even with Sadie not knowing who she is has her questioning so many things. Something feels off about their entire reaction. I really love this series, and it’s one that you truly need to read to get the full feels of it. There are a lot of moving parts, and it does have a big cast of characters, but they are a team that truly has become family. I can’t get enough of this series, and you do get a better feel of this series if you read it in order. Books one through five must be read in order, and then there are connected plots between the rest but they read as more standalone. They are all available in Kindle Unlimited for your reading pleasure.
