In New York Times Bestselling Author Cynthia Eden’s gripping new LOST novel, who’s the cat and who’s the mouse…?
SHE LEFT HIM ONCE.
LOST Agent Ana Young was only fourteen when she was abducted by a madman, but unlike many kidnapping victims, she did go home. Now, her mission is to find the missing. But her new case has her on the hunt for the escaped convict who’s obsessed with her. And Ana has an unlikely partner—the sexy, supposedly-by-the-book FBI agent she had one amazing night with and had to forget.
NOW HE HAS TO PROTECT HER 24/7…
FBI Special Agent Cash Knox knows that Ana, the petite, tough-ass former bounty hunter, can get the job done again. But this time, someone else leads them to “Bernie-the-Butcher,” someone who’s been watching Ana. Waiting for her.
FROM A CRAZED KILLER.
Now, catching a deranged murderer means Ana must trust her guarded heart to the gorgeous, complicated G-man she wasn’t supposed to fall for.
Wrecked is the story of Ana and Cash and its part second chance, part secret identity. Ana was abducted and tortured as a teen. In this event, her mother was killed, and her brother Asher became a killer. Now, many years later, Ana helps find missing people and hunts killers. Before joining LOST, Ana was a bounty hunter and crossed paths with Cash. Their path crossing involved a 1 night stand. 2 years later, Cash needs Ana’s help with a case. She agrees on the condition that their past stay in the past and that there is no recurrence of the event. (Yeah…we know how that goes!)
Ana is so guarded because of her past. She doesn’t let people into her world often. When she met Cash, she thought he was a good guy; she got the sense he was a ‘by the book’ cop. Guys like that didn’t belong in her darkness. But, Cash has secrets too and those secrets could crush Ana. They have undeniable chemistry but both are so scarred that having a relationship might be unattainable. And through it all, they are on the hunt for a killer. A seriously smart and devious killer who is attacking people who have done terrible things. This killer is also obsessed with Ana. The romance between Ana and Cash is smoking hot and when mixed with the danger this unique killer poses, I flew through Wrecked in record time. I couldn’t stop myself!
If you have ever seen the movie Primal Fear, Wrecked with resonate with you. While not really alike in any way on the face, the killer bore a haunting similarity to the way Aaron Stampler made me feel in Primal Fear. It made this story haunting in my mind!
