Review of Against The Sun by Kat Martin
Published: May 29, 2012
5 out of 5 smirks
Synopsis: "It’s not in bodyguard Jake
Cantrell’s job description to share his suspicions with his assignments.
Beautiful executive Sage Dumont may be in charge, but Jake’s not on her
payroll. As a former special forces marine, Jake trusts his gut, and it’s
telling him there’s something off about a shipment arriving at Marine Drilling
International. His instinct is aroused…in more ways than one.
A savvy businesswoman, Sage knows better than to
take some hired gun’s “hunch” as gospel. And yet she is learning not to
underestimate the man her grandfather hired to protect her. Determined to prove
Jake wrong, Sage does some digging of her own and turns up deadly details she
was never meant to see.
Drawn into a terrifying web of lies and deceit—and
into feelings they can’t afford to explore—what Jake and Sage uncover may be
frighteningly worse than they ever imagined."
Kat Martin is quickly becoming one of my top
favorite authors, with her excitingly adventurous stories and her heart
throbbing, head spinning main characters I would highly suggest any of her
books to fellow readers. Against the Sun
tells Jake and Sage's story about conflict and resolution that leads both
characters to an ending they will never regret.
What I loved the most about this book, besides the sassy wit of Sage and
Jake's amazing attributes (no I'm not just talking about his hunkyness), is the
unique and relevant storyline. I love
how the story involves current events associated with the chaos of the Middle
East and how violent it can become. I
also really loved getting to see different side characters and where their
story may lead in the future. I found I could
not put this book down and I feel it had a lot to do with Jake and Sage. I was on the edge of my seat trying to figure
out what would happen in the end of this book: would the problems within the
company resolve, what would happen to Jake and Sage if they finally did
resolve, would Jake be willing to tie himself to a place forever, would Sage
finally give in to her own happiness, would more sinister things be uncovered
as a result of Atlas Securities investigation?
I give Against The Sun by Kat
Martin 5 smirks because it is a must read, must recommend, and must own.
