REVIEW – SEEK by Mia Sheridan

SYNOPSIS

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.

Seek is a STANDALONE novel with a small, fun connection to the Sign of Love Collection

*****FOUR STARS*****

That truth had finally made itself fully known last night as I’d given myself wholly and completely to another man—not just my body, but my heart, shared myself in a way I’d never shared myself before. A man who lived anywhere and everywhere, a man who wasn’t available to me, but a man I was in love with all the same.

SEEK is a fast paced, action packed and steamy romance. Olivia Barton is on a mission to find her fiancé who has been missing for nearly six months. There have been rumors that he’s hiding out in Colombia. Looking for answers and possibly closure, Olivia enlists the help of Thomas, a mercenary for hire and ex-Navy Seal, to be her guide and protector through the treacherous Columbian terrain.

They will face several dangerous criminals while on their journey and many times it seemed as though Olivia’s plan to find her fiancé was going to end up being a huge mistake. Somewhere along the way, the two end up having a passionate affair, but how can it lead to anything more when Olivia’s main reason for being in Columbia is to find her fiancé?

A bombshell is dropped and it wasn’t anything that I came close to predicting. For those of you who are die-hard fans of Mia Sheridan, she gives us a little treat in this story. We are reunited with one of her most beloved Heroes from one of her previous books!!

Here are my overall ratings on the book:

Heroes: 4.5
Heroine: 4
Plot: 4
Angst: 4
Steam: 4
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 4

SEEK releases on January 22nd!

4 Stars!

-Life was a constant reminder that only the strong survived.

 

 

Olivia Barton is a beautiful, elegant woman living in Las Vegas. She was adopted as a child by a wealthy family, & has led a somewhat privileged life. She’s engaged to be married, and thinks she’s about to have everything she’s ever wanted. Then her fiancé Alec disappears, and she begins to question how well she actually knew him. She fears he had secrets, but she needed some answers, or she’d always wonder. Committed to fighting for him, or at least getting closure, Livvy decides she will head to the last place her PI tracked him to, a small oceanside town called Palomino, that’s on the Caribbean Coast in Columbia.

Livvy hires a former Navy SEAL named Thomas who is a mercenary/ soldier for hire, who mostly does contract work for the government. His job is to safely get her to Palomino, & help her locate her missing fiancée. She’s unfamiliar with the dangerous area full of crime, and doesn’t speak the language. Thomas will be her guide and protection in a foreign country.

 

Thomas initially thinks he’s going to be backpacking through the jungle with a prissy, city girl. He soon learns Livvy has a kind heart, and is stronger than she looks. He’s trying to keep things professional and focus on the job, but he’s extremely attracted to his client. He’s taken responsibility for her on this five day journey, and can’t afford for things to get personal.

Livvy is insanely attracted to her intense, gorgeous guide. Thomas is slowly opening up to her, and she’s seeing a new side to this tough, closed off man that she really likes. The sexual tension grows till they finally can’t fight it anymore. Everything suddenly changes between them as feelings develop, and real connections are made.

 

This was a fantastic story full of action, intrigue, secrets, lies, love, and explosive chemistry. There were lots of twists & turns, and it was an exciting, sexy read. Really enjoyed this one!

 

-“This night will always be ours.”

-This woman. The feel of her. The scent of her. I felt wild, completely untamed, shaking with a need I’d never known before. The need to claim.

-I was lost in him, lost in the joy of his taste, the calming scent of his skin. Safety. Goodness.

-I melted into him, my body, my heart.
