Review: Beneath The Surface by Joya Fields
Brooke Richards survived the earthquake that took her parents and most of her leg, but she needs time to regroup. A trip to Florida for a state-of-the-art prosthesis and to visit her best friend Linda seems ideal. But the trip turns traumatic when Brooke witnesses Linda’s boat disintegrating in a fiery explosion.
Police officer Garrett Ciavello believes the blast was intentionally set to hide something Linda found on a dive. When Brooke offers her expertise in underwater archeology, Garrett accepts her help with the investigation. But since his fiancée’s death years ago, Garrett has become overprotective, and as they are drawn to each other, Garrett realizes he will risk anything to keep Brooke safe.
Brooke is fiercely independent. Garrett is fiercely protective. Will they heal each other’s wound and find a killer…before it’s too late?
~Blurb from Authors website~
When it comes to writing romantic suspense Joya Fields is a master at her craft. Things in Beneath The Surface start out with a bang, quite literally and the roller coaster of emotion never stops. I was drawn in by her ability to weave a story that both captured your heart as well as tugged at that little part of your brain that wants to solve the mystery first. Her characters are well written and easy to believe they are as real as you or I.
Brooke is a wonderful heroic woman that wont let anything slow her down, she experiences tragedy that we hope we will never have to live through however she does it and continues on to find love.
Garrett also has his share of life shattering experiences and that coupled with his job as a police man and you have an alpha male protecting what he feels needs him. He will do what it takes to keep Brooke from further harm.
I really can't say enough good about this book, I don't want to post any spoilers so I am just going to tell you what an amazing author Joya Fields is and give this book my highest rating of Chocolate and Roses
