His Secrets Can Destroy Her

From the moment Josie laid eyes on sexy, mysterious Shane Dean, she was in love. Their desire ignited a passionate affair, and within weeks, Shane had slipped a ring on her finger. It seemed her every fantasy was coming true . . . until her new husband disappeared without a trace. Now, two years and one broken heart later, Josie is shocked by the hospital calls: Shane has been found . . . at a crime scene with no memory of how he got there.

Her Love Can Save Him

Shane can't remember the blue-eyed angel at his bedside—or who he even is—but he knows something isn't right. His hearing is razor sharp, his physical strength incredible, and the urge to protect Josie overwhelming. For powerful enemies are hunting him, and Josie is the key to discovering why. As Shane struggles to unravel his past, dangerous new truths come to light. Can he protect the only woman he's ever loved? And can Josie trust a man she thought she knew—one who carries such a deadly secret?

Just loved this one. Rebecca Zanetti has now gone on my auto-buy list.

Out of the blue Major Shane Dean (marine) was brought by a police officer to his estranged wife’s job. Apparently Shane has walked out on his wife Josie 2 years ago to places unknown. Now he is back but with amnesia. This begins their journey to a second chance at love.

This book was exciting, intriguing and pretty hot. Zanetti tells an interested romantic suspense. I stayed up last to find out why Shane left Josie and why he is back and why he has amnesia. There was so much to this story and it was pretty good stuff. Shane was a military man, but Josie wasn’t the damsel in distress he took his wife to be. Obviously they had to really learn to forgive and trust, but they had to get to know the real person they married. I enjoyed Shane having to put everything on the line and trust his wife.

I don’t know what I was expecting, but I didn’t find this story to be predictable or cliche. It was an interesting concept and it was action packed from page one. I just couldn’t put it down so I think I will read book 2 tomorrow.

About Rebecca Zanetti

Rebecca Zanetti wrote her first story when she was six – a romance between a princess and neighboring prince. The princess fell out of her castle and the prince rescued her. A happily ever after was had by all.

This theme of romance has been carried through Rebecca’s works until present time. While today’s heroine may have a medical degree, black belt in Karate and her own 401K, she’s still after that happy ending. And today’s prince may have fangs and wear a black hat, but hey, a modern princess likes a guy who bites.

Growing up amid the glorious backdrops and winter wonderlands of the Pacific Northwest has given Rebecca fantastic scenery and adventures to weave into her stories. She resides there with her husband, children and extended family who inspire her every day.

Grace never thought she’d be starting her life over from scratch. Losing everything has landed her in Lucky Harbor, working as a dog walker for overwhelmed ER doctor Josh Scott. But the day his nanny fails to show up, Grace goes from caring for Josh’s loveable mutt to caring for his rambunctious kids. Soon Grace is playing house with the sexy single dad…

With so many people depending on him, Josh has no time for anything outside of his clinic and family–until Grace arrives in town. Now this brainy blonde is turning his life inside out and giving a whole new meaning to the phrase “good bedside manner.” Josh and Grace don’t know if what they have can last. But in a town like Lucky Harbor, a lifetime of love starts with just one day…

This book is a 4-star but the H/h’s lives were so freaking chaotic at times, it was stressing me out!

The heroine was Grace Brooks, 3rd member of the chocoholics and her HEA with Emergency Room doctor Josh Scott.
Grace is trying to find a new job in her field (accounting) because she quit her prior job when boss made it known sex was part of his expectations for her job performance. She jumped in her car and ended up driving from CA to the Washington State little town of Lucky Harbor. She befriended Mallory and Amy, and the trio became the chocoholics.

To make ends meet, Grace does everything, flower delivery, modeling, book keeping etc. She answers a call from Dr. Josh Scott who needs a dog walker and she walks into a life more chaotic than her own.
Josh’s parents died in a car accident and left his younger sister a paraplegic. On top of that, Josh’s baby mama left him with their son Toby. Toby got a little dog named Tank who needed a walker, hence Grace’s new job.

Of course Toby’s nanny quits, Josh’s sister Anna couldn’t fulfill the responsibilities as she was busy making everyone miserable, so it’s Grace to the rescue.

This is the clash of the Girl who won’t stop running from her parents expectations and the Guy who is carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders. It got crowded really fast, but nothing like love to strip away the unnecessary things and make people face the music.

I will admit that I liked Amy and the Ranger’s story better. I also liked the 3 sister’s story better. However, Jill Shalvis tells a great story, with great characters and just engaging you until the end. I like Grace finally making her stand and I like that Josh finally really accepted help. They were just what the other person needed. This series is one of the best CRs out there!
