It’s Time To Meet A New Kind Of Hero…
Dante Stark has a dark secret–a legacy left to him by his father which is both a blessing and a curse. A traumatic experience as a small boy gave him special powers of healing, but it comes with a price. Destined to wander the world alone to heal others, he’s accepted his fate. Until Selina Rogers forces him to confront his deepest fears, erotic desires, and question his capacity to love.
Selina Rogers has made a name for herself at Inferno Enterprises. She’s tough, confident and prepared to succeed. She’s also built a world she believes is safe, until she’s attacked and then saved by a masked stranger. As he helps her heal physically and emotionally, she becomes fascinated by his overwhelming power and gentle touch. Determined to show Dante the love he’s been denying himself, Selina surrenders her heart, and dreams of a future with the mysterious man who completes her.
But will his dark legacy destroy them…or save them both…
I am not gonna lie, I was expecting a lot from this book, and though I thought it was a good read, I felt like there was so much of the story missing. I think I just expected more to the story. It wasn’t a bad story by any means, but I didn’t feel like it was everything it could have been. A lot of that was due to the length and I felt it was a bit rushed to get to the ending.
Now that you know what I didn’t love, here is what I did love: Dante/Daniel. I loved his character. He was dark, mysterious and lving a few separate lives. He is a mailman by the day, a superhero by night and a very wealthy business owner somewhere in the middle of it all. But the think about Dante is that he knows that relationships are out of the question. They just don’t end well. Someone always gets too close, he can’t divulge his whereabouts and she ends up leaving. Deep inside, he knows he will never find his HEA because of his hero powers.
But in his eyes, there was something special about Selina. She is a tough cookie. She has her life all mapped out and she knows what she wants out of life. She is strong and independent, but she is almost superhuman in her own way. Her strength is greater than she even thinks, except in her heart. That is where her greatest weakness is. But when the unthinkable happens, all of these worlds will collide.
Selina and Dante and Daniel… everything becomes blurred and everything changes for both of these characters. This is a great short read, as I said, I was just expecting a little bit more of a storyline with a bit more drama and angst. Please remember. three stars in my world is not a bad thing. I liked the book, I just wanted more.
