Title: Double Vision
Author: L.M. Halloran
Genre: Romantic Suspense
POV: First Person – Female
Eden Sumner was ready for a change. After a few years alone in the city she decided to go back home to pursue the future she had planned. But a chance encounter with someone unexpected irrevocably changed the course of her life weather she wanted it or not.
Liam Rourke was no stranger to changes and uncertainties. Detachment worked best for his lifestyle until he felt the unlikely connection with Eden. But how could things work when their world was surrounded by deceptions and lies?
Liam is the sun. Vivid and warming. He makes me forget. He blots out the past and future and recolors my entire world.
Liam was a pretty sexy character especially when his Irishness came out. I like how he was firm but not pushy.
This isn’t romance—it’s war. One army fighting itself. Me against me.
Eden started well for me. It was interesting to see how she was thrown into something she had no control of. However, as the story progressed a lot of time I was baffled by her actions/decisions especially considering the situation she was in.
“I want to keep you, Eden. I want to own you. And if that makes me a brute, so be it.”
This book had a lot of potentials. Unfortunately it lacked focus and intensity. There were several different elements included that only scratched the surface. There was also BDSM element that was simply off and wasn’t really needed. The storyline was there. It just needed to be connected and tightened up.
He was right—this isn’t the movies. This is real. This is my life. And I’ll be damned if I’m going to give it up without a fight.
Double Vision is a story of adapting and surviving. It would appeal to fans of romantic suspense with dark elements.
