Where is Kiro?
He’s the lost Dragusha brother, heir to a vast mafia empire—brilliant, violent, and utterly savage…and he’s been missing for years.
I'm supposed to be doing simple undercover research at the Fancher Institute for the Mentally Ill & Dangerous, but I can’t keep my mind off Patient 34. He’s startlingly young and gorgeous, but it’s not just that. He’s strapped way too tightly to that bed. And there’s no name or criminal history on his chart. What are these people hiding? My reporter’s instincts are screaming.
Here's the other thing: the staffers here believe he’s so sedated that there’s not a thought in his head, but I catch him watching me when nobody’s looking. Our connection sizzles when I enter the room. When our eyes meet, I know he understands me in a way nobody else ever has.
I’m supposed to follow my editor’s orders—I have secrets, too—but everything about Patient 34 is suspicious. How can I not investigate?
*A Standalone HEA*
I was given a copy of this book for a fair and honest review.
Ann is a journalist trying to work her way back to the top of her game after suffering a horrendous tragedy in the Middle East. In working for a rag that no one respects, she goes undercover at an institution for the Mentally Ill and Dangerous, as a nurse.
One of the ten patients for which she’s responsible, is in an all point restraint, wrists, ankles, waist, and neck. Even with that, he is also given enough drugs that he shouldn’t have a coherent thought in his head. Without a name, he’s simply called “Patient 34”.
After discovering that Patient 34 does in fact remain lucid, her investigative instincts kick in, and she attempts to uncover who he is and why he’s there since his records are in essence a blank slate.
First of all, this book was incredible. This is the type you reserve your five-star ratings. The plot and sub plots were well thought out and flowed nicely throughout the book. Each character remained true to form while the romance sizzled between Ann and Patient 34. Locations ranged from an institution for the criminally insane to the wilderness in Canada.
This is the first book I’ve read from this writer but certainly won’t be the last. She takes you on a ride which you won’t forget and walk away from until the last page is turned. Kudos to Annika Martin!
