I can’t recall if I’ve ever mentioned this before but my brain is a lot like the fish, Dory, in the movie Finding Nemo. I have trouble remembering things. Fortunately for me if a book is outstanding then I’ll have a better chance of remembering it. On June 15, 2017 I read a book called Rescued by the Captain by Laura A. Barnes. I do remember absolutely loving it and wondering if there was going to be a second book. I am ecstatic to inform you that there is indeed a sequel called Rescued by the Spy.
Please indulge me by allowing me to quote from my review for “Rescued by the Captain” for a minute because I feel it absolutely applies to what I want to say about “Rescued by the Spy”. “The plot was masterly planned and executed with a steady and smooth pace. It was impossible to put the book down because the treason and romance plot kept evolving on each page”. It’s important for me to quote from my old review one more time. “While Thorn and Ivy achieved their happily ever after, I was left wondering if there will be a book two with Charles, Ivy’s brother, and Raina Le Clair, a lady who had a part in the unsolved treason plot. There needs to be a book two for Charles to complete his mission.” I am thrilled to announce that book two is indeed another masterly planned and executed story about Charles and Raina. One last quote before I jump into why I loved “Rescued by the Spy”. “Other than a serious craving for more, this was an excellent romance story that was very entertaining. The characters are well developed and I feel like I inherited another “book family”.” Book two continues to implement the well-developed characters that were equally entertaining as book one was and once again I was left with a serious craving for more since the treason plot was still left unresolved! However, this time around I know that there is going to be a book three! Yes, I will be reading book three! It’s going to be Zane Maxwell’s story and a mystery leading lady character! Maxwell is deeply involved in the treason plot. I have a feeling that Zane Maxwell’s story is going to be epic!
Okay, going back to why I told you my brain is a lot like the fish, Dory, in the movie Finding Nemo. Well, that’s because I read the first book a year ago and I’m ashamed I forgot some of the important details. I had a little anxiety attack wondering if I should go back and read book one. Let me reassure you that it does not matter if you read book one. The author did a fabulous job starting book two with a prologue dating six months earlier. If you read the prologue and feel lost don’t worry about it because as you continue to read the author will clear up any confusion you might have. She did a fantastic job mixing the previous book into the new book. Although, I do strongly recommend reading the first book just because it is a great story. I really enjoy Laura A. Barnes’ writing style. Both stories are filled with unexpected plot twists that kept me on the edge of my seat guessing what was going to happen next.
Raina, the heroine, is an intelligent strong leading lady who is quick on her feet. It was quite entertaining how she kept eluding Charles, the hero. Charles was persistent which contributed to the amusement between them. Together they made a great team despite all the secrets that existed due to the treason and the mission. I could feel their love and chemistry and must note that their love scenes are spicy. However, it’s par for the course since the entire book is piquant!
I can’t wait to read book three. I hope the villain, Shears, has an orgasmic demise! I look forward to being reunited with Thorn, Ivy, Raina, Charles, Zane and this new mystery lady. I can’t even imagine how they will all save their beloved land of England from that despicable villain, Shears. Anyway, in case it’s not obvious, I do highly recommend reading “Rescued by the Spy”. I hope you find it as enjoyable as I did.
