My Review

Copy given in exchange for an honest review

Plot
The story was definitely intriguing and mysterious. It was a quick who-dun-it. Tamara was kidnapped and in the end we still don't know who it was. The author gave enough information/clues to conclude that there are at least 4 suspects, but even when Tamara confronted the perpetrator, their identity wasn't revealed. I'm wondering if this will be tackled in a second book.

Characters
Omar was amazing from the moment he was introduced. He and Tamara experienced insta-love and although their connection was written a bit choppily, there was no doubt of their chemistry. Omar was loving, loyal, protective, successful, considerate, etc. He was an extremely likable character.

Tamara was harder to like. At times she was immature, impulsive, condescending, etc., which reflected negatively on her character. Add to that the fact that the author had EVERY man (basically) in the book madly in love with her, it was pretty difficult to take this character seriously.

Final Thoughts
It was an amazing first book. I would recommend it to romantic mystery lovers and would be interested in seeing more of this story.
