REVIEW: Denial of Conscience

Book Blurb: Liz Bennet is hiding from life on her family’s decaying, historic plantation, afraid to live fully. Hindered by duty and obligation, even reluctantly agreeing to an untenable marriage, she cannot silence her conscience from crying out for her to flee– run – escape before it’s too late. Prompted by a cataclysmic event and the arrival of the enigmatic, attractive Fitzwilliam Darcy, Liz is thrust into a dangerous adventure where her spirit is released amidst international intrigue.

However, Darcy carries his own deep stash of secrets as a premier government-sanctioned assassin working with an elite clandestine group named Obsidian. He’s spent a long, dark decade justifying his career choice while smothering his own conscience that beckons him back home to his ancestral Pemberley, its demons, and the man he was meant to be.

He is steel, rock-n-roll, and Tennessee whiskey.
She is orchids, opera, and peaches with cream.
Together they are physically and emotionally charged TNT, ready to explode.

“Don’t be afraid. Get on… let’s ride.” ~Fitzwilliam Darcy, the “Iceman”

My Review: This book has a plot that Mr. Bennet is a traitor to his country and Darcy is contracted to take him out of commission. Of course he ends up seeing Lizzy and then realizes he can't go through with it. But then a member of the CIA is contracted to kill daddy Bennet and well Darcy just happens to be in the right place at the right time. This starts an adventure to save Bennet from some middle eastern terrorists. Along the way the two end up falling in love.

I will say that this book to me just seems like one big plot to get our dear couple to have sex. Hell the majority of book has them trying to control their lust for one another. Normally I enjoy books that has the two of them eventually consummating their relationship. But this book just has them dancing around it for almost the entirety of it. You almost jump for joy when they finally get it on so that the actual plot can finish happening. This book just didn't hold my attention that well. I found myself continually stopping it and reading something else. Oh well.

Rating: ★★★★☆
