Broken (Last Option Search Team) - Cynthia Eden

A woman walks into an agency that specializes in finding the missing and the lost.  But, she isn't looking for someone else...she's looking for herself.


To say that I love Cynthia Eden is like saying chocolate is okay.  I enjoyed her paranormal series, but for me, it's her romantic suspense that are automatic 1-Clicks.  Broken had me tied up in knots. Every couple chapters I thought I'd figured out the killer, only to have another plot twist thrown in my face.


Gabe is all Alpha male, but Eve/Jessica is no wallflower. Both characters are so multifaceted. As their personal secrets were revealed, they only became more real. Their story is sensuously woven into a tight suspense plot that kept me up long passed my bedtime. It hit all of my buttons, readabilty, plausibilty  and entertaining. And while I'd like to think that I figured out who the villain was, I must say, Cynthia Eden made me work for it.


And as a first book, it is brilliant.  So many secondary characters were introduced that I want to get to know. Book two is about another Lost operative, Dean and a mysterious woman in New Orleans. I can hardly wait.


Highly recommend if you like your men Alpha, your villains smart, and your sex steamy.
