THE SENSUAL SAGA OF EVA AND CLIVE CONTINUES in the hotly anticipated follow-up to CHASING EVA...
HeÔÇÖs addicted to her. HeÔÇÖs obsessed by her. He cannot stay away from her. He doesnÔÇÖt want to. He couldnÔÇÖt bear to. But when demons from his past threaten his future with Eva, he must make a devastating choice. A choice that may lead him to losing herÔÇªforever.
Her days are darkening. SheÔÇÖs losing all control. Her only anchor is Clive. But her troubles are mounting, and sheÔÇÖs pulling him with her into deep danger. Will their limitless passion overcome it all? Or will she lose him too...forever.
Loving Eva is a wonderful follow-up to Camellia Harts debut Chasing Eva. The story continues from where Chasing Eva left off and is a a great balance of romance and suspense. Clive and Eva are finally on a solid foundation, but the mystery involving her uncle and the FBI continues to plague them. She’s also clearly in the line of sight of someone with rather nefarious intentions, making this a page turner.
While Clive and Eva are more settled as they’ve found some semblance of a normal relationship and appear more confident in each other, tensions remain as Clive’s past continues to haunt them. This unfolds as Clive reflects on a past relationship and guilt he feels around this young woman’s demise. He also has a certain ex that just can’t seem to move on. Then there’s Eva’s stalker and the old family friend Ryan who tries his best to interfere in Clive and Eva’as relationship. If outside influences weren’t enough of a challenge, Eva’s still struggling with self esteem type of issues (exasperated by his ex) and being in her head at times is sometimes maddening. Of course this could all be helped if Clive was just a little more forthcoming.
While a lot happens in this installment and Clive and Eva do seem to move forward and grow as a couple, there’s still a few lurking and unresolved items. I started having questions about Ryan and his interest in Eva’s life. He’s pretty hell bent on taking Clive down and I don’t trust him one bit. Her Aunt is another character I’m not so sure about, and what about Clive’s ties to Special Forces?
Once again Hart creates a sexy suspense filled story with plenty of red herrings to keep the reader guessing. There’s hope for Eva and Clive as they progress in their relationship. I’m very much looking forward to the 3rd installment with the ominous title Killing Eva –>>EEEEEP!! ┬á4.5 stars and recommendation!!
