Wealthy socialite Olivia Barton never imagined her fiancé would disappear on what was supposed to be a routine business trip. She's even more heartbroken and confused when a hired private investigator tracks him half a world away, to a seaside town in Colombia. But the country has recently been ravaged by a massive earthquake and deadly tsunami, shutting down outside communication and making travel all but impossible. Still, Olivia is determined to make it to Colombia to find the answers she so desperately seeks. What she needs is a guide—a mercenary.
The man named Thomas arrives in shadows, an unmistakable air of danger about him, promising to help lead her through the ruined, crime-infested country. But when Thomas and Olivia find themselves fighting an undeniable attraction, danger takes on a whole new meaning. Then again, in the lush jungles of South America, all the rules are different and Thomas and Olivia are about to discover that sometimes the thing you seek, isn't necessarily the thing you find.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for review consideration. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Mia Sheridan is an author who I can always count on to give me an experience. Her writing is exquisite, her characters complex and easy to connect with, and her stories unique. There’s often a healthy level of angst and a high number of swoons along the way, too. All of these were true with Seek. It was a great, quick read that I thoroughly enjoyed.
Seek reminded me in a lot of ways of Mia’s earlier books in the Sign of Love series — ironic, too, since there’s a tie there I’m obviously not going to tell you about right now. Not only did it check my romance box, but it also had the added bonus of the more suspenseful storyline with Olivia’s fiancé and her journey with Thomas to rescue him. It was far from predictable, too. The twists surprised me and the overall story kept me guessing. I like that it a more suspenseful read. I don’t mind tropey, predictable stories when it comes to romance, but I like something a little different with my romantic suspense.
“Love makes you weak.”
“You dream like I do. Only… you’re more selfless than I am, Thomas. You dream for others. You were once scared, alone. So you rescue those who still are.”
“It’s not even natural how much I want you.”
