Publisher Description

Pleasure with a price.

A high-profile celebrity wedding in Monaco is the kind of A-list event security specialist Rand Maguire excels at. Everything goes like clockwork, until guests start inexplicably losing all their inhibitions. . . .

Painful secrets from the past.

Rand is no stranger to the effects of Rapture. His chemist father’s attempt at a cure for depression caused Rand’s mother’s death years ago, and put his father away for her murder. Now someone is circulating Rapture in a campaign of terror, intending to manufacture and sell it on a global scale. But with no leads, Rand feels the heat.

Passion with no limits.

Sexy Lodestone agent Dakota North is sent to help Rand kick-start his search, armed only with her uncanny sixth sense. But what they discover in their race across Europe is more far-reaching and lethal than an erotic street drug. From a Barcelona bank heist to a million-dollar arms deal in Paris, Dakota and Rand give in to an insatiable craving for each other in nights of pure carnal delight, no senses left untouched. No Rapture necessary.

Somewhat bizarre, but it held my interest

I think this was the wildest paranormal romantic suspense I’d ever read. The opening scene was shockingly funny and titilating, and it set the tone for the rest of the story. The plot itself was quite bizarre and implausible. However, I did enjoy the chemistry between the hero and heroine, as well as the adrenaline fueled craziness spanning across several European countries.

Dakota and Rand had sizzling chemistry, but the relationship was strained for the majority of this book due to omissions, lies and deep hurt. Dakota seemed like a nicely balanced character. She was smart, witty, tough, but also vulnerable. Rand, on the other hand, was pretty much a jerk throughout. But I did like him when he was in full on business mode.

The fact that they’d once been in love and engaged to be married seemed to be easily forgotten in the wake of his mother’s death, the incarceration of his father, and the implication that Dakota had had something to do with it. Instead of hearing her side of the story, he broke up with her and love had turned to bitterness and hatred. When Dakota became his only hope of tracking down the person or persons responsible for unleashing a devastating drug that could be used as a weapon of mass destruction, hatred and lust began to blur the lines.

Although Rand was stubborn, rude, and believed the worst about her, I liked the tension that created between them. Dakota didn’t take everything he dished out, but she was just as lost in their pasts as he was, and she didn’t throw the truth in his face at the earliest convenience. When they kept their focus on their mission, they worked well together. She wasn’t a trained agent by any means, but she held her own. The sex was steamy, even if they got it on at some pretty inopportune times.

The twisted plot really was bizarre, and the gloating from the villain at the end really didn’t make it seem sane at all. I didn’t see the revelation coming, so that surprise was nice. I did enjoy all the different European countries and the details. It was suspenseful, but be warned, you’re in for a lot of cray cray, including a smidgen of paranormal with her special ability. This was my first book by Cherry Adair, and I have two others on my shelf, so I will give this author another go.
