"She's armed with a new attitude and a kick-ass wardrobe....
By age twenty-eight, art historian Jade Fitzgerald has had a marriage from hell and an equally nasty divorce, worked hard to control her weight and her arrhythmia. The last thing she needs is another man messing with her head or shooting her heartbeat off course. That is exactly what she gets when an aloof and mysterious stranger storms into her life.
He's cynical and doesn’t take crap from anyone....
Former investigative reporter Vince Knight is on a quest to recover a priceless, ancient Mayan artifact, which he believes Jade’s mother stole. He’s skilled at gathering information while remaining emotionally detached, until he meets Jade. The voluptuous woman stirs in him a hunger he hasn’t felt in a long time and a protectiveness he can’t explain.
Until, an insane man decides to add Jade to his collection of beautiful and rare things....
Neither Vince nor Jade expects passion to flare so fast or danger to dodge their footsteps. To defeat a ruthless art collector with a twisted agenda, Jade and Vince must learn to trust each other and embrace their growing feelings."
The first book I read by E.B. Walters was Slow Burn, the first novel in The Fitzgerald Family companion series. I wasn’t a big fan; I thought it was okay. Typically, that is when I would decide to quit reading a series. However, Mine Until Dawn, the second novel in The Fitzgerald Family companion series was recently available for free on amazon.com, so I decided to give it a chance. Unfortunately, this novel wasn’t for me either.
I can’t pinpoint exactly what it was that I disliked about this novel. This novel had a very good plot and interesting characters, but I never connected with the story or the characters. While I was reading this story, there were multiple times when I just wanted to skip to end and be done with it. Mine Until Dawn wasn’t for me; however, the majority of readers have enjoyed this story very much. It has received amazing reviews on goodreads.com and amazon.com.
I know this isn’t going to make much sense, but my recommendation is to give this novel a shot. It wasn’t for me, but it seems to be for the majority of readers. I would hate to discourage readers from purchasing a novel that might be exactly what they’re looking for. If you have read this novel, please let me know what you thought about it: good or bad. I’m curious!! (Maybe your comments will help other readers decide if they should purchase this book or not, because as you can tell, I am not much help here!)
I gave Mine Until Dawn by E.B. Walters 3 STARS (2.5 STARS).
