Her nightmares don’t stop when she opens her eyes… In one night, talented musician Allegra Ennis lost her sight, her father and her career in a brutal attack she can’t remember. Now she’s alone in a world of darkness, her only company the nightmares in her head…and a killer is stalking her every move. Scarred and disfigured by war, tough former SEAL Douglas Kowalski never thought a beauty like Allegra could love someone like him. He doesn’t expect more than a one-night stand. But when Allegra’s life is threatened, Kowalski realizes he will do anything to keep her safe – and by his side.
I both loved and hated this book…but in a good way.
I loved Doug and how he thought Allegra was so wonderful. Every time he looked at her he couldn’t believe his luck. He was gentle and calm with her and I loved how the author portrayed the two vastly different sides of Doug (the ass kicker and the tender lover). I also liked the fact that Doug was described as so very ugly on the outside but so beautiful and steadfast on the inside.
I hated Allegra’s name, lol. Every time I read it I think of that medication.
What I didn’t like was the conflict of the book – it was rather…eye roll inducing. I also didn’t like running into yet another extremely delicate flower…but at least this flower had a little more spunk than the other two.
