REVIEW: Savage Secrets by Cristin Harber
Caterina Cruz has no home. No loyalties. No objection to exacting torturous revenge. Her life’s mission is to destroy the terrorist who murdered her family. Then she steps into an elaborate game of charades alongside a Titan Group operative posing as an arms dealer—and her newlywed husband. The sexy distraction may be more than she can handle. Attacked with a psychedelic drug weeks before, Rocco Savage is plagued with hallucinations that threaten his new rank as Titan’s second-in-command. No one knows and he wants to keep it that way. Throwing him further off his game, he now has a wife with her own secrets he can’t crack and an agenda he can’t control. Their mission—an elaborate deception of heated glances and passionate kisses—spins out of control. With Rocco's mind already compromised, can he keep his secret and his distance? And with Caterina's tragic past controlling her every move, can she keep the con up long enough to secure her revenge? Or will both go down in flames?
RATING: 4 stars
REVIEW: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This is the fourth book that I've read from Cristin Harber and they stay just as good as the first book! The storyline is exciting and pulls you in with the action from the very first page.There is tension, both from the action, and sexual from the two main characters towards one another. This helps fuel the storyline further and faster. When I read Cristin Harber's stuff, I know there will be plenty of explosions, both in bed and out.
I love the Titan men. They are well-written, alpha military-type men who are just so hot, and have so much testosterone, you can almost smell it coming off the pages. I love alpha men, but I hate when they are paired with weak, whiny women.Rocco has always been a favorite of mine, in the background.
Thank God the women who are the counterparts of the Titan men are just as bad-ass as their men! Caterina is definitely Rocco's equal, is not his saving grace at his times of weakness. It shows the softer side of Caterina that you may not see without those hallucinations of Rocco's.
Overall, this was an incredible book to read, and I can't wait to read the next. It would be nice to see a thread of an enemy throughout the series, but without it, it makes it easier to read these books as a stand-alone and not be required to start from the beginning of the series.
