    Had almost read the book that comes after this first but realized halfway thru the first chapter there must be on before This was fast past actiony suspense that starts out with the detectives denial that he likes the pretty scientist But once her life is put in danger and she's willing to do what it takes to help him work the case he starts to finally admit he likes her a lot She's faced trauma but he his so sweet and loving about it Would love to see than these two in the series

    Good book Hannah is a chemistry professor at a local university She took that job after an explosion at the drug company she worked out left her with burn scars Now a police detective has come to her asking about the last project she worked on as there may be a link to a series of recent murders Owen thinks she's hiding something but he's pretty sure she's not involved When she's the victim of a couple attacks Owen is determined to keep her safeI liked Hannah She's trying to rebuild her life after the terrible injuries she suffered She's doing pretty well except in the relationship department When her fiance left her because of her burns it caused her to doubt that any man would be able to see past them When Owen arrives at her office she is worried that she might be a suspect because of the way he watches her But Owen makes her nervous in another way also she's attracted to him The knowledge of what they're up against has her determined to overcome her nerves and help Owen find out who is behind the murdersI liked Owen also He's trying to get his career back on track after the death of his former partner He's carrying a lot of guilt over Joe's death convinced that it is his fault He's suspicious of Hannah at the beginning because she acts so nervous around him but is uickly convinced that she is innocent As they work together Owen's attraction to her gets stronger When she's attacked he feels that it is up to him to keep her safeThe relationship between Hannah and Owen has several issues to overcome On Hannah's side she has to learn to trust Owen's feelings that he can see past her scars to who she is She wants to be loved for who she is Owen has to move past his grief for his partner and accept that Joe's death really wasn't his fault He has to see that protecting Hannah isn't penance for not protecting Joe And when Hannah confronts him with what he's doing he doesn't want to believe it It isn't until he has a long conversation with Joe's widow that he's able to see what he was doing wrong and take steps to fix itThe suspense of the story was very good I liked seeing how Hannah and Owen worked together to figure out who was behind the murders Hannah's former work at the drug company made her familiar with the chemicals and with the people who were still there It was interesting to see her interactions with her former coworkers and how they led her to the truth The finale with the one who almost got away was very intense

    Top marks for giving us a heroine who is not only a professor but has worked in the chemical industry overseeing a project When you read 'nitrogen mustard compounds' you're immediately thinking dangerous gases You're right While the initial aspiration of the pharmaceutical firm was to create chemotherapy medicine the project was abandoned and Dr Hannah Baker left with a silence agreement after her lab blew up injuring her She'd just found that the compounds were too destructive in lab tests so she wasn't surprised that the project was closed But the police have now been finding bodies dumped and a chemical signature leads them to uestion Hannah about her former work This will endanger her all over again The male detectives who work with Hannah come across as fairly standard but sometimes people just are who and what they seem to be Because this is a romance we get a few paragraphs of wishful thinking here and there on the part of Hannah and one detective who becomes protective but who ultimately ends up in greater peril The romance can be read by any age and is well thought out The author makes it clear at the start that she has worked in the chemical industry but all the adventures are entirely imaginary This means that the descriptions are good and the possibilities realistic The book is not a lengthy read and should be enjoyed by fans of romantic suspense or just plain suspense

    This started out really great then tumbled into a mess of cliche ridden predictability and ended at a pivotal moment with a suddenly enlightened heroine telling the hero in a rather self righteous fashion that he should not be with her out of a sense of duty when it had been painstakingly shown throughout that he was doing anything but Their HEA comes only after he grovels and supposedly 'sees the light' an apparently wonderful action after he has been grieving deeply for a lost partner at work Some Harleuins work out great for methis sadly just didn't

  6. Myra Wardhana Myra Wardhana says:

    The instant chemistry between Owen and Hannah was my first choice why I chose this book since I love many Romantic Suspense and Intrigue Series from Harleuin beside Romance Special Edition and to be honest I can pick any series any time as soon as if I start from the very first page and I cannot stopAnd how immediately Owen was drawn to Hannah's shyness and fear covering her wounds and burns from her accident and Hannah's uiet and inner braveness inside her that just want to be set free was keeping me to keep on reading and just want to keep goingMy most touching part was when Hannah was hospitalized and Owen was nursing her burns and wounds that she has hide from him from the very beginning that was beautifully described and well written by the writerAnd also close to the end part when Hannah said goodbye to Owen even after Owen asked her to stay with him until the bad guy get caught because Hannah did not want to become a burden to Owen because of her injuries she wanted Owen to love her as herself not as a wounded witness to a horrible crime

    I won this in a goodreads giveaway I entered the giveaway with the intention of giving this to my aunt who is a fan of romance novels She read this and said it was pretty good a little different than the Harleuins that she reads because of its mystery element That piued my curiosity as mysteries are what I prefer but when she said it was about chemicals and stuff like that I passed Still though she thought it was a good book so that's what counted

  8. Carol Marques Carol Marques says:

    I could not put this book down It was fast paced and I thoroughly enjoyed the extremely clever plot and believable characters The fact that the author comes from scientific background makes the premise of book believable if not a little alarming A good read

  9. Harlequin Books Harlequin Books says:

    With smart dialogue and a solid intriguing mystery at its center this story will draw readers in Add two vulnerable characters with great electric chemistry and this story is one fantastic read RT Book Reviews 4 stars

    As a science nerd myself I was hoping for a bit from this book It was well written enough and Hannah and Owen were good enough characters but I felt it was not developed fully or something I just was left feeling a bit let down
