***This is a new adult contemporary novel and contains sexual content and graphic language. It is not intended for young adult readers.***
Honor Calhoun never thought her life would ever be like the books she writes for a living. One morning while out for a run, she learns not all bad things are plots in novels. Some horrors can actually come true.
She faces off with a persistent attacker, holds her own, but in the end is taken hostage and thrown into a hole. In the middle of the woods.
But Honor didn’t go down there alone.
She took her kidnapper’s phone with her. But with a spotty signal and a dying battery, hope is slim.
Nathan Reed is an active duty Marine stationed at a small reservist base in Pennsylvania. All he wants is a calm and uneventful duty station where he can forget the memories of his time in a war-torn country.
But a single text changes everything.
Nathan becomes Honor’s only hope for survival, and he has to go against the clock, push aside his past, and take on a mission for a girl he’s never met.
Both of them want freedom… but they have to survive long enough to obtain it.
My Review (5 out of 5 stars):
OOOOooooooohhhh, hot, sexy, suspenseful, what else do you need?
Song choice: “The Ghost Of You” by My Chemical Romance, “Misguided Ghost” by Paramore, “You are the Best thing” by Ray LaMontagne
First thoughts: I thought this was fantastic! I have only gotten the chance to read the first in the series, which i am dying to read Tease, its just a matter of time…. bwhahaha anyways, this isn’t about Tease or Torch, this is about Text. Holy goodness what a fantastic book! This was sit on the edge of your seat going, OH MY GOD WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN, OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD! To sitting back going, aawwwww, ohhhhh my heart can’t take it! To ohhh jeeez *fanning yourself*
Thoughts on Plot: While I don’t read a whole lot of contemporary fiction, the type I do like is a bit suspenseful and action packed but also romantic. I am very demanding 😉 anyways. This had it all. While the action started right away i loved it! I loved it, I loved it! This was very fast paced, to the point you pull away and go, “oh damn i am 50 percent through the book O.O” The chemistry between the two characters is overwhelming! Anyways in all honesty the moments were sort of predictable for the most part, I was thrown off course once or twice. Either way i found it very enjoyable. The voice of the characters was amazing as well.
So on to the characters
Honor: She was quite a treat. She was a fighter, through and through. She was a very interesting character as well as being a fighter. Not once does she give up nor does she ever act like the damsel in distress. She isn’t letting fear stop her from living or fighting for her life. She was an intense character and i really enjoyed being in her mind. She was over all an awesome MC i don’t think that anyone could really find faults in her.
Nathan: Well he has some problems but its okay. He will be okay, and he will break your heart and he will heal it back up again. Don’t you worry about this boy he found his healer. He found the one person that really can pull him back from the edge. While this book was supposed to be Nathan saving Honor – Honor saves Nathan.
This isn’t a book about boy saves girl, boy and girl fall in love, this is about boy helps girl, girl saves boy, they fall for each other, how could they not? Even Honor mentions that readers would call it intsa-love, i don’t see it that way, not at all, sure they fall fast and hard but in there situation i don’t think it is that unbelievable in fact I truly believe in the love they have. ❤
This was an amazing book and I can see why it made the top 100 best seller list on amazon ❤ Congrats to Cambria Hebert she totally deserves it
