False Perceptions by Michelle Heard
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
5 Cranky Stars
Hayden Cole is a Navy SEAL. His name may seem familiar, but this isn’t about how that name is familiar it’s about how he was tasked with the mission to recover a Senators daughter. Hayden has a good life, but It hasn’t been easy. Nothing ever is when you are part of an elite team sent in to rescue people from dire situations. His team is his family they have grown together and now with his daughter in the picture he thinks his life is going well and maybe just maybe it’s time to hang it up. When he rushes in to save Emilie Swanson little does he know his life will change drastically. He doesn’t expect this strong-willed woman to be in his mind constantly and when given the chance to see her again he goes for it. One final mission after a mission gone so horribly wrong.
Emilie Swanson has been beat down and had her heart battered. Another marriage has failed and she is questioning herself. The only place she must turn to is her father Senator Swanson which isn’t any better in the men who make her feel horrible department. When she is kidnapped from her car and left in a dark room she refuses to break. She prays for a swift death or at least hopefully a rescue. What little she can remember about her hero is little, but she clings to his voice in her head when things get tough. Now adjusting to a new normal she doesn’t expect a man to show up on her property looking for a place to stay and wanting to help. He feels familiar to her but she just doesn’t know how.
I could go on and on about this book but seriously you need to read it for yourself. Hayden Cole is a book boyfriend though and through. The chemistry between these two was phenomenal. In typical Michelle Heard fashion this book has some dark elements but it will also rip your heart out. I cried and I’m glad no one was home to witness it except maybe my husband who ignores my antics.
The first few chapters you can tell the author is writing from a very real place and I felt broke down and betrayed for Emilie. I just loved this book. It features some characters from a previous book and it’s everything. I don’t want to say anymore other than read this book. You won’t be disappointed. I mean how can you not love a dog named Peanut and a horse named Jelly?
