If I Want You Without

#Blogtour – 28th April 2018

Hi All.

I am so very thrilled to bring you a review of this book from the wonderful mind of Rachel Brimble. It is such an exciting read and I am itching to tell you all about it….(Spoiler free of course)

First though, I would love to thank the wonderful Rachel’s Random Resources and Author, Rachel Brimble for inviting me along on this fantastic #Blogtour.

When I sign up for a book tour or for any review at all then I always try to not read too much into the book, so that I can go into the book blindly and without any hindrance or disturbance from other reviewers, etc. I like to form my own opinions of a book I read and enjoy guessing what a book is about simply from the front cover. 

So, as always, I only had a small summary of the book to go on and the image of the front . The male model they used on the front had me interested from the beginning; but I have always been a sucker for a tall, dark, handsome strange. The impression I got from the front that this story was going to be passionate, dangerous and thrilling. 

Never judge a book by its cover; I thought this was going to be sexy love story with plenty of passionate scenes…little did I know how this story would play with all of my emotions, this book is more than a love story. And I loved every minute of it.

Before I head further into my review, let me tell you more about the author, Rachel Brimble.

About the Book

When local journalist, Tori Peterson, fails to prevent a child abduction outside her niece’s school, her horror and guilt sparks a vow to do whatever it takes to get little Abby Brady home to her parents.

While Tori battles the vile memories of her own kidnapping as a child, she accepts the help of widowed father, Mark Bolton. As he and Tori join forces with the local police, their attraction and intimacy grows…along with their fears for Abby.

Links are uncovered between Abby’s disappearance and Tori’s kidnapping, and Tori is forced to accept the monster who held her captive is back. But this time, Tori is all grown up, and there is no way she will let him hurt another little girl.

My Review

Sometimes you come across a book that truly gets you in the ‘feels’ and this book was one of them. Reading through the first couple of chapters, my mouth was dry, my heart was racing and I was on the edge of my seat…quite literally! Every parents nightmare was happening in right in front of my eyes and I felt every word that was written. My mind flashed to my two young boys and I felt the fear resonate as I read the opening chapters.

Tori Peterson witnesses a child’s abduction outside her nieces school and is forced to relive her traumatic past experiences. Suspecting that her abductor could be back to cause her further heartache and trauma  she and fellow parent, Mark Bolton set out to help solve the crime; hoping to get the child back home safe where she belongs.

This story was fast paced and kept me interested from beginning to end. Tori’s character was difficult to like at first, she was rude and stand-offish but I realise that this was the authors clever way of showing Tori as a rather broken person. Over the years following her abduction she puts up her guards and refuses to let anyone in; fearing that she will be hurt again. Even her close family are held at a distance. But behind her tough exterior she is still a young girl trying to survive; constantly looking over her shoulder in case HE comes back. 

As always I love a good love story and enjoy reading passages that get the heart racing and this book sure does deliver. The connection between Mark and Tori is palpable and I loved reading the interactions between them.

I read this book fairly quickly as I was eager from the beginning to find out what happened to the characters. The ride I was on was thrilling and dramatic; I was not left disappointed by the ending.

If you are looking for a book which is hard-hitting yet entertaining look no further than this book!

Conclusion

There wasn’t anything about this book that I didn’t like; it was such an entertaining read and I am so honoured to have been asked to take part in this blogtour. The character’s were realistic; the story flowed really well and was action-packed from Page 1!

There were some rather heart-wrenching moments and this book had me teetering on the edge of wanting to put the book down and cover my eyes in one hand and wanting to read until my eyes hurt in the other. Rachel Brimble did so well with this book and I applaud her for fantastic work. One thing for sure is that I will be adding Rachel’s other works to my To Be Read (TBR) list. I look forward to seeing more from her in the future.

5 out of 5 Stars!
