Review & Giveaway - TRAGIC DESIRES by A.M. Hargrove

A.M. Hargrove


My name is Gemini Sheridan. At least that’s what I thought it was for 23 years. Then one day a slight adjustment on the wheel of my mountain bike set into motion a series of catastrophic events that changed my life forever. Now I’m running from the headaches that threaten to destroy me… from the assassins that threaten to kill me… from the truth that exposes who I really am… and from the man that wants to save me. Because he now owns my heart and I fear him above all others.
My name is Drexel Wolfe and I’m a private investigator. Nothing ever stands in the way of what I want because when I see something I just take it. All of that changed the night my life collided with Gemini Sheridan’s and now everything is one hot damn mess. And the worst part of it all is that I’m trying to save her ass and I don’t know why the hell I’m even bothering. Well, that’s not exactly true. Fact is, I can’t stop thinking about her. She’s crawled into every thought I own, asleep or awake. I have serious plans for her that include making her mine. What she doesn’t know is that when I play, I play for keeps. Nothing and no one will get in my way or stop me… not even Gemini Sheridan herself.

      Umm, I really don’t know where to start with this one.  This book hooked me in right from the start and didn’t let go until the very last page.  Even then I was wanting more.  The book starts with Gemini doing what she loves to do, mountain biking, when disaster strikes.  She is left with a head injury that causes so much pain she begins seeking relief with illegal drugs.  When Drexel first sees Gemini his whole life changes.  He can’t explain why he is drawn to her, but knows he has to protect her.  When she is almost abducted he comes to her rescue and learns there is more than what meets the eye.  They soon come to learn that a terrorist group as well as the CIA are after Gemini for information they think she has. 

     We follow them through twist and turns as they try to uncover the mystery of why so many people want her.  During the course of the story both come to realize they love each other and would do anything to protect the other.

      I love the funny banter between Gemini and Drexel, to me it personalizes the book.  For instance, I could really picture the follow as it was taking place:     

“Have you ever worn night-vision goggles?” I ask.
“Sure. I wear them all the time.”
“Okay, smart-ass.” 
“Seriously? Drexel, where in the world would I wear
night-vision goggles?” 
“I don’t know. Hunting?”  She shakes her head.
“Yeah, my mom and I used to hunt big game in our backyard when I was a kid. 
Lions and tigers.  Once I even shot a wildebeest.”

     I love a book that can weave in suspense, mystery, love, humorous banter and a HEA altogether.  Since I don’t believe in giving out any spoilers, you will not find any of that here.  Go get your copy today, I promise you will not be disappointed!
