BOOK REVIEW- Wild for You (Tropical Heat #2) by Sophia Knightly *
To Love, Honor and Protect
Detective Clay Blackthorne has his hands full when he promises to safeguard an old college pal's sister without letting her know what he's up to. He never imagines that lively Marisol Calderon will knock his socks off and put a ring on his finger--and all at his suggestion! Their marriage of convenience is meant to protect her and Clay doesn't plan on being hitched for long to the tempting beauty. But the honeymoon sure feels real to him...
Sassy Marisol is used to doing whatever she wants--and right now her plan is to shake up the hot detective's hard-edged demeanor. But the fun turns to danger when a mystery stalker bent on marrying her marks her as his prey. Temporarily becoming Clay's wife seems like a practical way to thwart the stalker. But as passion ignites and Marisol falls for the tender heart buried beneath the tough detective's chest, Clay's true identity is revealed and she begins to wonder who--if anyone--she can trust... AMAZON LINK 4 STARS
This was a good story that moved pretty quickly. There was the danger that comes from the stalker, and the secret that Clay is keeping from Marisol . A romance does develop but so does that challenge that comes from Clay when it comes to love.
It had a good plot with interesting and somewhat complex main characters. Well, Marisol was pretty much an open book kind of person who lived life with zest. No wonder Clay called her Sunshine after he spent some time with her. Clay is the one with some complexity to him. He's going some trust issues going on when it comes to women. Thanks to his ex-wife. I liked his relationship with his younger brother, Jimmy who has some mental issues. Now, there was someone he WASN'T afraid to love.
The story comes to a good ending with a satisfying epilogue.
