ARC Review: Wrecked by Cynthia Eden

Wrecked is another installment in the romance/suspense LOST series by Eden. I've read 3 other books in the series but you don't need to do that if you want to read this one. Each of these books are standalones and contain no spoilers of the preceding books. I have thoroughly enjoyed all of the books I've read in this series. Each one contains compelling characters and enough suspense to keep you on the edge of your seat or whatever.

It's hard to do any kind of meaningful summary of these books which isn't just repeating the blurb without spoilers. These books have layers and layers of mystery so the less you know about the actual plot, the more fun this will be for you. I can tell you this though, all the layers of mystery are what makes these books so good. There is one over arching story but there are also several sub-stories that get unwound along the way.

Ana is a LOST agent who gets drawn into an FBI manhunt by Cash. Cash is the man Ana hasn't been able to forget and after 2 years, the feeling is mutual. Of course the whole "help me with the investigation" thing is pretty nuanced. Cash does want Ana's help but what he really wants is Ana. These two characters are...complicated. You will be gobbling up every detail about them as the picture of their past and present slowly emerges. Both Cash and Ana are hiding things that could destroy them even if some psycho killer doesn't get them first. But the secrets and scars that these two characters have make the relationship between them intense. Everything with them is magnified and the connection feels much realer than you expect to find in a mystery/suspense.

A lot of times the romance in these books is eclipsed by the action or the suspense and the romance portion is lacking. That is not the case with Eden novels and that's why they're so good. For readers like me who were James Patterson, Lisa Gardner, Mary Higgins etc fanatics for years who have grown to love romance, we couldn't ask for more than these books. That is particularly true if you like things a little dark and dirty, as I do.

This is another hit for Cynthia Eden and an excellent choice to kick off your summer.
