SECOND NATURE by D.L. ROAN - 5 STAR REVIEW!!



My rating: 5 of 5 stars


SYNOPSIS
Returning from his debut in Second Chances, lethal assassin, Grant Kendal, is hiding away on a deserted island trying his best to put his deadly past behind him. When Thalia Brezlin washes ashore, beaten, broken and hell-bent on revenge, something other than darkness is awakened inside Grant. She's feisty, stubborn, beautiful and has a kick-ass aim with a pistol. When his past catches up with hers, Grant and Thalia are drawn into the underworld of human trafficking; a place where evil thrives on stolen innocence and nothing escapes alive. Only the love they find in each other can save them, but what if you don't believe in love?

WARNING: Second Nature is a fast-paced, heart-pounding story about survival. Grant and Thalia's story takes you deep into the underworld of human trafficking and the monsters that live there are very real. Contains strong sexual content, gritty language and some graphic violence. Second Nature is intended for adult readers only.

REVIEW

I read this book while on a plane on my way to Europe. I was super excited to read it as I had heard so much about it.
Ok now let me just say, I really hate flying. Like HATE… but 3 hours into my transatlantic schlepp and I was so engrossed in this book that I wouldn't have dreamed of being anywhere else.

I kept looking around wishing I could talk to someone about what I was going through, what Grant & Thalia were growing through, but the people around me may as well have existed in a another dimension. It was just me and my book. Neither the snoring man behind me, nor the incessant whining of my children, could not pull me from my reverie.

‘Second chances’ takes us on a journey into the murky world of abduction and human trafficking. From the very first page of this action packed, riveting book I was catapulted into its nucleus.

The story centres on Thalia Brezlin. She is tough, like John Claude Van damme tough, sharp as a tack, beautiful and just… BAD-ASS. She is also strongly driven by vengeance, she is resolute on avenging the death of her uncle, the man who raised her, protected her, and taught her to kill with precision. She is obsessed with seeking out his murderers and delivering her own brand of justice, no matter the cost.

Her plans are thwarted when she finds herself washed up on a remote beach and into the life of one VERY sexy, dangerous, wall of a man - Grant Kendal. He is a man with a past, a man who is trying to live in solitude, until he finds Thalia. She is barely alive when he finds her on the shore of the secluded island he calls home, and as much as he tries, he cannot shake his curiosity about this beautiful stranger. Against his better judgment feels compelled to help and protect her and what follows is an explosive turn of events that will completely blindside you, as secrets are uncovered and truths are revealed.

I LOVED this book so much, I ATE. IT. UP. I read it word for word-no skimming. D.L Roan is a master wordsmith and she had me wrapped around her little finger for the entire journey. Grant Kendal is HOT HOT HOT- Ms Roan can write the hell out of an Alpha and the steam between Thalia and Grant is positively thigh clenching!


The plot is multilayered and completely unpredictable and she flawlessly balances what is a very serious and edgy tale with  a tasteful  amount of humour; I laughed out loud and fell in love with Wilson ( just wait and see). This is without a doubt HOS mandatory reading! 'Second Nature' is sheer quality and I give it 5 Golden, span dangly stars all day long! I will dutifully read anything this author writes. Thank You Ms Roan <3 br="">
