Since I missed yesterday’s book review post due to a very lovely wedding (gotta love real-life romantic moments), I’ll have two up today. First we’re starting out with another in the “Tryst Island” series, following Book 1: Rebound, Book 2: Dragonfly Kisses, Book 3: Smoking Holt, Book 4: Heart of Ash and Book 5: Devlin’s Dare. I haven’t read them all but I do have reviews for Rebound and Smoking Holt.
Scarred by a long-ago crime of passion, Parker Rieth has dedicated himself to a cold, emotionless existence as a divorce lawyer. He is utterly unprepared for the effect Kaitlin Stringer has on his heart, mind and soul. Beautiful, ethereal and irresistible, she touches him in a way no other woman has. Though he has vowed to avoid her, he is drawn toward her.
Psychic healer Kaitlin is just what Parker needs to reconcile his past, to finally set old ghosts to rest, and to claim his destiny. Can he find the courage to step into Kaitlin’s embrace? Does she have what it takes to awaken his sleeping passion?
I’m really loving York’s Tryst Island series. They are sexy, emotional and full of interesting characters. As each of them fall in love, it leaves me both satisfied and looking forward to more stories.
Both Parker and Kaitlin have problems letting others in. They were each scarred by a long ago event, but together they just might be able to learn to trust again.
I really enjoyed both of the characters. I wasn’t sure how I was going to react to Kaitlin’s psychic abilities but it works well in the story. The way she’s able to provide comfort and hope to Parker is fantastic. And he’s one of my favorite characters so far – troubled, honorable, and a little bit scared but willing to give in to his attraction to Kaitlin anyway.
There is also an interesting twist to this one – a bit of danger and intrigue, which is a little different than the ones I’ve read so far. It isn’t all that involved but it does add a little more to an already great read.
Parker’s Passion (like all of the stories in the series) is scorching, sweet and addictive. York is quickly becoming one of my go-to authors.
(Although, Parker’s Passion can stand on its own, it does have ties to the previous books in the series. If you haven’t read them, don’t worry, it’s just kinda fun to see those stories from a different perspective. Plus we see more of the friends who are sure to have a future story and I’m looking forward to each one.)
