His past is better left forgotten…
Former Army helicopter pilot Jake Donovan is lucky to be alive. At least that’s what his team of neurosurgeons said. But he knows differently. Jake’s crimes almost cost Holly Hoffman her life, and even though he can’t remember, the pain in her eyes is something he’ll never forget.
Holly’s done being a victim. As a trauma nurse her skills are needed by a humanitarian group providing medical aid after a killer storm ravages the Gulf Coast of Texas. Saving lives however, won’t be an option when a madman wants her dead.
Can Jake and Holly shed the weight of his dark past, or will their happily-ever-after have a fatal ending
How was it?
An intriguing plot with just the right amount of romance.
No Greater Hell is the fourth book in Jerrie Alexander's Lost and Found, Inc. series but it was the first one I'd read. I'd heard these books are fast-paced and with intense suspense and I was not disappointed.
Since I hadn't read the other books, the opening was slightly confusing because I wasn't familiar with all of the characters. I appreciated how the author dropped bread crumbs of past events without slowing the current story's pacing. This is a standalone book and I enjoyed it as such.
The plot, though delightfully twisted, is plausible and not beyond the realm of possibility. The villain is a goose-bump inducing, sinister SOB. Not in a slasher-movie sort of way, but more of a he-could-be-walking-down-my-alley-right-now gut twisting fear. The deeper I settled into the story, the more I found myself thinking,
"Okay, he needs to die! Now!"
And Jake is just hot. I liked how the author shows him as a strong, protective man but avoids making him into a pretentious, overbearing, semi-stalker. He's hurting and he's scared, but he still respects the woman he has feelings for and doesn't charge into her space.
Holly is a strong character in her own right. She's not the damsel in distress, longing to be rescued. She steps up, takes charge and moves herself and others out of harms way. That's a woman I can admire.
