Résumé

Kensey Lyons has never had ‘normal’. Instead, she has a mother who lives in her head, a stepfather who’s on death row, and the stigma that comes with being the child of an extramarital affair. Writing has always been her escape. Knowing the reception her books receive will be tainted by her personal life, Kensey secretly writes under a penname when she’s not working part-time at her godmother’s bar. Her world might not be exciting, but she likes it exactly as it is.

When she meets alarmingly compelling businessman Blake Mercier, the snap of attraction is instant. She doesn’t like it. Doesn’t want to be drawn to this man who is blatantly dangerous, carries dark secrets, and lives life by his own rules. Neither of them make a great first impression on the other, so she’s more than surprised when he begins to pursue her with a single-minded focus that is unsettling, thrilling, and infuriating. Her gut tells her to keep her distance, but Blake won’t let her run. Won’t give her space.

There’s another person who won’t give her space. Someone who has discovered the secret of her penname and who seems intent on taunting her. And as Kensey struggles to identify her persecutor, Blake is by her side, determined to keep her safe … because Blake Mercier always holds tight to what’s his. Always.

“Okay, what is it?” I licked my lips. “I told you there were bodies in the church and that Reed had killed them. Well, one of them was Liza Montgomery. She was the type of victim he went for. A female child abuser.” Blake went completely rigid. I rubbed his arm, knowing he wouldn’t want to be grateful to Reed for anything but was likely still glad that she was dead. “Do you think he was telling the truth?” asked Blake. “I don’t see why he would have lied about it, but I guess we won’t know anything for sure until after the police finish their investigation. I just wanted to give you a heads-up before I spoke to them.” Blake gave me a brief nod. “Let’s get this over with.” He called out, “You can come in now.” I rested my head on Blake’s chest once again as Bartley and Joshua came inside. “You look a little better than you did before,” said Joshua. “Thanks for the warning about the church. We weren’t expecting bodies.” “You still have Reed and Ricky in custody?” I asked. Bartley nodded. “Yes. Be assured that they won’t be getting near you again. I can see that you’re tired, Miss Lyons, but we really need to ask you some questions,” he said, surprisingly sounding apologetic. “Okay,” I told him. “But I’m not moving even an inch from where I am.” Joshua looked like he was fighting a smile. “That’s fine.” They didn’t take long questioning me, though that might have been because Blake kept gifting them with impatient sighs and asking them if they were done yet.

(lu en VO) J'aime bien l'auteure mais j'ai trouvé ce livre-ci un peu long et peu mouvementé. Les deux héros viennent de milieux compliqués, ils accumulent les problèmes à tel point que ça semble peu vraisemblable :

elle : anomalie yeux vairons, père qui refuse de la reconnaitre, mère qui se remarie avec un serial killer (emprisonné), demi-frères et sœurs qui la harcèlent, + un fan de son beau-père qui fait une fixation sur elle lui : meilleur ami suicidé ce qu'il ne peut pas se pardonner, mère morte dans des circonstances horribles, belle-mère qui lui fait des avances, liaison dans son adolescence avec une cougar, tendances dominatrices et sadiques (oui, bon, je simplifie), gère des clubs plus ou moins légaux…

C'est sûr qu'il faut un long roman pour démêler tout ça, mais je pense que j'aurais plus apprécié une intrigue plus simple et plus rapide...

J’adore Suzann wright. Ses livres sont toujours bien écrits et on ne s’ennuie jamais. On change complètement d’univers même si l’auteure garde sa signature dans la manière d’écrire. L’intrigue est bien monté et quand on sent qu’on connaît le coupable elle arrive à rajouter un rebondissement qui nous laisse littéralement sur le c...

j’ai vraiment apprécié la lecture et le lire en anglais n’était pas du tout compliqué.
