Mine To Hold (Mine #3) - Cynthia Eden
Cover Rating: 3.5 out of 5
Rating: 3 out of 5
She was one man’s obsession…
Nine years ago, Claire Kramer’s lover brutally killed her family, and he tried to kill her. She escaped, but she’s been haunted ever since that attack. Too afraid to trust another man and too worried that her past will catch up with her, Claire never gets too close to anyone. But then she meets Noah York.
He must have her.
Noah York is a man with secrets. The world sees him as a billionaire hotel tycoon, but Noah has a dark and dangerous side. For years, he worked covert military operations before he built his fortune. When it comes to death, Noah is a master. He knows that he should steer clear of Claire, but the white-hot attraction Noah feels for the delicate beauty is instant—and consuming.
He will never let her go.
Someone else is just as consumed by Claire—someone who will kill to possess her. And if Noah can’t stop the hunter in the darkness, he may just lose the one woman that he can’t live without.
I have read the other two books in this series and I really enjoyed them, this one started well and ended well but lost its believabilty in the middle.
Eden is exceptionally good at creating mysterious characters, you are often questioning the motives of each player in her game.
This time around we follow Claire and Noah - who I really enjoyed in the last book - but based on her past they fell for one another a little too fast for me.
Noah seemed to love her for no real reason, with Skye and Trace the history of the relationship made the almost insta love understandable but this time, less so.
I did enjoy this but it just didn't have the same fresh quality as the last two books.
If you like thrillers then give it a go; if you aren't an insta love fan, maybe try and see.
