Haven (Beards & Bondage #1)
A week-long getaway…
City girl Claudia Cade’s carefree life is plunged into chaos when a camping trip with her brother in the national forests of Northern California turns into a deadly dash for her survival.
A solitary world turned upside down…
Nature photographer Shepard Olsen has resigned himself to a quiet existence, with only his dog by his side, until a woman in need of his protection shows up on his doorstep and throws his universe into disarray.
Two lives linked by tragedy…
Claudia is desperate to heal from her traumatic loss, but can’t stop thinking about her run-in with evil….or the grizzled mountain man whose quick thinking and good aim saved her life. When she shows up on Shep’s doorstep again, she finds she isn’t the only one who can’t move on.
…saved by bliss.
The two begin an intense, passionate relationship of Dominance and submission, pleasure and pain, but with dark memories haunting them and decisions about the future rapidly approaching, Claudia can’t help but wonder…how long can they be each other’s haven?
I have to say that this book started off with a bang. From the very first page there was action. It was a really good book. I could compare it to Fifty Shades good.
Claudia is a city girl who is on a vacation with her brother, when everything goes horribly wrong. She is running for her life and comes across a cabin in the woods. Shep is a sexy mountain man with a lot of emotional baggage. He answers the frantic beating on his door from a woman who is hurt bad. Shep saves her and rushes her to the hospital. He stays by her side till the FBI tells him no. Then she is gone. Then one day she returns to say thank you and the attraction heats up. Can she get past her hang ups and his? Can he love?
This book had a great plot. It seems as if Shep has issues with loving someone. Claudia seems to be having a hard time dealing with the whole guy trying to kill her thing. Claudia and Shep are very strong characters. They have a lot on their plate to deal with. The book starts off extremely fast paced. It goes right into the story instead of building up to the rescue (Kind of like that first drop of the roller coaster). Overall the book is good. It tells a deep story of dealing with inner demons. I recommend this book if you like books like Fifty Shades. I give this book 4 Stars.
