Falling for Sarah is a romantic suspense full-length novel. With action, suspense, and steamy romantic scenes, this book has it all.
New mother Sarah finds herself widowed within days of giving birth. Two years on, she has managed to build her business to success while she photographs Hollywood's A-listers and takes care of her daughter, Kylee. Then long-time friend and bodyguard, Ethan, sends her world reeling after a searing moonlight kiss. Add to that the Blue Chip Rapist striking close to home, and blue roses and notes left on her doorstep, and things will never be the same again. Not only does Sarah struggle with guilt over her belief that she's betraying her husband's memory, but also with the stalker who's becoming more and more obsessive and problematic. Ethan has his demons to battle too, not believing he's good enough for Sarah or Kylee, and trying to track down the stalker before he can take away everything that Ethan cares for.
While this is the second book in the Bodyguards of LA series, it is a standalone novel.
The scene setting, world building, characters, plot, and pacing are all done well. I cared what happened, and the author succeeded in making me chuckle and raised my heart rate from time to time. The writing is mildly passive and contains filter words, name dropping, and other hiccups. On the whole, though, I would say this is a good solid read and highly entertaining. It gets 4 out of 5 stars from me.
The story starts on somewhat of heartache as the day after Sarah has given birth to her daughter Kylee she is told that her husband has been killed in action. Ethan is with her then and promises to be there for as long as she will need him – to which she replies she will always need him, so he will always be there.
We then skip forward a few years to the wedding of Morgan and Hunter. It’s here that Sarah starts to see Ethan in a new light. She sees how much she relies on him for help not just for her daughter Kylee but also for her aswell. Which is something that his date to the wedding seems to want to make something out of – nasty woman that she is. When Sarah tries backing off though it just confuses Ethan, making him want to know what’s wrong. You can see right away that he would do anything for Sarah and Kylee. He has always tried to only see her as a friend but it must be the wedding setting or sea air because somehow they end up kissing. This is just the start of the crazy back and forth they both go through with trying to decide if they should give in to what they are both feeling. Now if this wasn’t happening in the middle of a crisis that would have made it a lot simpler but no such luck. There is a serial rapist turned murderer on the loose who seems to have got Sarah in his sites as his main prize. With the unspoken feelings they both have coming to the surface they have to decide if they are all in or not before its too late.
Oh there are moments where I just wanted to shake Ethan throughout this book. Come on man make your mind up and stick to it! Having said that it did make for interesting reading as you were going through every emotion and reasoning that they are with trying to figure out what they both really want. You can see why the fear of being something real would scare them but with everything going on around Sarah at the time Ethan could have handled it better.
I always like it when you get to be inside the villains head as its gives more depth to the story. You can see how all the players are acting and are just waiting for all the pieces to fall into place for the climatic ending you know is coming. Clever how it shows the villain slowly deteriorate as his behaviour escalates from one victim to the next. His pattern is changing as the story builds till you get to the final showdown – will Ethan get there in time?
Great bit of writing exploring lots of characters within the same world but not feeling crowded or overrun with too many to keep track of. Will definitely check out the rest in this series, as it’s just to start of things to come with these special agents. Hot bodyguards to the rescue anyone? They can cover me anytime. This is the second in the series but from reading it definitely felt like it could be done as a standalone.
I received this ARC from Book Review Tours for my honest review.
This book is not 'just' a romance - I'll be honest if I hadn't picked it as a special limited edition freebie I would have never read it which would have been a pity. I didn't realise it was about a stalker and serial rapist ... this was just as well as I doubt I would have read it if that had been highlighted but it is a story about how a love develops between two friends into something very special and how sometimes you have to trust yourself to make the right decision.
Read it and enjoy an adventure .... I'm definitely going to buy more in the series if they are as goods as this.
Everything Ethan did for Sarah and her baby, made me love him even more. What a roller coaster ride. Had my stomach in knots
His love for his best mate, made me cry.
This series of books will keep you riveted. You won't want to put them down till you've finished.
No hesitation in recommending them.
