The moment I laid eyes on Seth Marc, I knew he was trouble. His rugged looks and intense presence made my heart race as our eyes locked across the room.
He was the type of man I knew I should stay far away from, with his chiseled body and a dangerous aura that screamed trouble. But I couldn’t resist him.
Every fiber of my being was drawn to him, and I knew I had to have him. I was fully aware of the risks of getting involved with a man like him, but I was willing to take that chance.
For the first time in my life, I decided to throw caution to the wind and take a walk on the wild side with Seth, no matter the cost.
In Skyla Madi’s Consumed, readers are treated to a gripping story of steamy romance and fast-paced action. First published in September 2013, this book has proven to be immensely popular among fans of the romantic suspense genre.
Madi’s writing style is both sensual and thrilling, employing vivid imagery and masterful pacing to keep readers captivated from start to finish. The story centers around two main characters, Olivia and Noah, who are both struggling to overcome their past traumas while navigating a dangerous world of criminal activity and corrupt law enforcement.
Olivia is a fiercely independent journalist who finds herself caught up in a web of intrigue when she begins investigating a series of murders. Noah is a former police officer turned private investigator who is hired to track her down and bring her back to safety.
As they work together to uncover the truth, their attraction to each other grows stronger, but so do the forces that threaten to tear them apart. Madi’s portrayal of Olivia and Noah is nuanced and complex, with each character facing their own demons and struggling to make sense of their complicated emotions.
Despite their flaws and mistakes, readers will root for these two characters to find their way to each other and overcome the obstacles in their path. The setting of Consumed is also notable, as it takes place in a gritty, urban environment that feels both familiar and dangerous.
Madi captures the tone and texture of this world with skill and authenticity, adding depth and realism to the story. One of the strengths of Consumed is Madi’s ability to balance the steamy romance with the high-stakes action.
The pacing is taut and exciting, with plenty of twists and turns to keep readers on the edge of their seats. However, at times, the plot can feel a bit convoluted, with too many characters and subplots vying for attention.
Despite this minor flaw, Consumed is a thrilling and satisfying read that will leave readers eager for more from this talented author. It’s a book that fans of romantic suspense will enjoy, and that showcases Madi’s skills as a writer.
Overall, I would highly recommend Consumed to anyone looking for a fast-paced, thrilling read with a touch of romance. Madi’s writing is top-notch, and the story is both gripping and emotionally satisfying.
Whether you’re a fan of the genre or simply looking for a great read, this book is not to be missed.
