Love is a Stranger

He had no idea what the relationship with his boss really was, but he sure as hell wasn’t going to let the man know he actually liked him.

John Wiltshire
Love is a Stranger

Format:
Audiobook

Publisher’s Synopsis:
Ex-SAS soldier Ben Rider falls in love with his enigmatic married boss, Sir Nikolas Mikkelsen, but Nikolas is living a lie. A lie so profound that when the shadows are lifted, Ben realizes he’s in love with a very dangerous stranger. Ben has to choose between Nikolas and safety, but sometimes danger comes in a very seductive package.

Point of view:
3rd person. Entirely from Ben’s perspective.

Rellim’s Thoughts:
Well this is a bit tricky because so much of what makes this an incredibly compelling listening experience is that not all is as it seems – and if I explained it all, it wouldn’t be as fun.

And this book was a LOT of fun. Serious. Deadly. Sexy. Emotional. Spycraft. and Fun. And there’s a DOG!

I read that and I think – whoah, whoah, whoah – you won’t be prepared for how much the book also devastates you. Because I definitely became attached to Ben and Nikolas and when more is revealed it’s heartbreaking.

I really clicked with John Wiltshire’s writing, especially her sense of humor. While this is a complete and enjoyable story – it is just the beginning for Ben and Nikolas. Be ready to be sucked into the More Heat Than the Sun series because the ending leaves you wanting more. I’m jumping right into Conscious Decisions of the Heart.

Narration:
Gary Furlong. Oh my goodness. This man is amazing. His accents are wonderfully consistent. Emotions. Timing. It comes together in a truly perfect production.

I received a free copy of this audiobook from Decent Fellows Press and am voluntarily leaving an honest review.
