Tragic Desires (Tragic #2)
by A.M. Hargrove.
Audience/Genre: Contemporary Romance.
Publication: February 16th 2014 .
My name is Gemini Sheridan. At least that’s what I thought it was for 23 years. Then one day a slight adjustment on the wheel of my mountain bike set into motion a series of catastrophic events that changed my life forever. Now I’m running from the headaches that threaten to destroy me… from the assassins that threaten to kill me… from the truth that exposes who I really am… and from the man that wants to save me. Because he now owns my heart and I fear him above all others.

My name is Drexel Wolfe and I’m a private investigator. Nothing ever stands in the way of what I want because when I see something I just take it. All of that changed the night my life collided with Gemini Sheridan’s and now everything is one hot damn mess. And the worst part of it all is that I’m trying to save her ass and I don’t know why the hell I’m even bothering. Well, that’s not exactly true. Fact is, I can’t stop thinking about her. She’s crawled into every thought I own, asleep or awake. I have serious plans for her that include making her mine. What she doesn’t know is that when I play, I play for keeps. Nothing and no one will get in my way or stop me… not even Gemini Sheridan herself.

*This is an Adult Contemporary Romance and is not suitable for younger readers dues to its sexual content and language.
** This is a Stand Alone Companion Novel to Tragically Flawed

Reviewed by Kelly.

This is more realistic than most books. It shows that some people are embarrassed talking about intimacy or their body parts. I liked that. Since I work in Labor and Delivery, I see a lot of that. Women use lots of names for their vaginas and that’s the way Gemini was. It was too cute!

I like that she used headaches in her book and showed how debilitating they can be. At the end, A. M. Hargrove shares her own story of headaches. Again, more realistic. My hubby suffers from them after a terrible motorcycle accident and I have migraines too. So, I could relate. I liked watching how Gemini wanted to die from them and how she also wanted to get back to living her life again and goes mountain biking and how Drexel could help get rid of them for her. You’ll have to read the book to figure out how he does it. “Wink Wink”

Gemini learns after she has a biking accident that her mom had sheltered her for a reason. She isn’t really Gemini Sheridan but someone else and her mother had kept it from her. She was protecting her from someone and people who want something from her but Gemini has no idea what that is! Her mom did leave her clues but they were very hard to find. When Gemini had the accident her life started to spiral out of control. She didn’t know anything about her mother really. She had to learn trust all over. Could she trust Drexel or even believe in her deceased mother or her former lover? Now Gemini’s on the run with Drexel at her side and she just doesn’t want anyone to be hurt, most of all Drexel.

The scene in the hospital where Drexel is on a morphine drip was hilarious!

The two of them like each other a lot. As in they can’t get enough of each other a lot!

What I didn’t like: OK, this just shows how much I thought about this book. This book is a mystery and suspense and it gets you thinking. I obviously was thinking too much, because, when I was driving home after being in classes late at night, I ran over something that looked like a bag with something in it. It sounded like it attached to the bottom of my car. I started thinking that someone had a remote button and my car was going to blow up?!! I was seriously freaking out! No laughing allowed!

My voice is gruff with emotion. "When two people love each other, they share their hopes and dreams along with their fears. They don't run, Gem. Please don't ever run from me again. I've loved you from the start. I felt it from the first moment I saw you. You didn't, but it didn't take long for you to figure it out. We've never just liked each other. We didn't fall in love. We plummeted. It's been hard and fast for us since the first time we slept together. After that, I knew my life was going to change and that you would be the reason. Only I didn't know how much or that I would go to any lengths to make sure you were safe. I kept asking myself why I was doing all these things for you. But deep in my heart I knew. I knew all along.

One day, on her way home from work as a sales manager, A. M. Hargrove, realized her life was on fast forward and if she didn't do something soon, it would quickly be too late to write that work of fiction she had been dreaming of her whole life. So, she rolled down the passenger window of her fabulous (not) company car and tossed out her leather briefcase. Luckily, the pedestrian in the direct line of fire was a dodge ball pro and had ├╝ber quick reflexes enabling him to avoid getting bashed in the head. Feeling a tad guilty about the near miss, A. M. made a speedy turn down a deserted side street before tossing her crummy, outdated piece-of-you-know-what lap top out the window. She breathed a liberating sigh of relief, picked up her cell phone, called her boss and quit her job. Grinning, she made another call to her hubs and told him of her new adventure (after making sure his heart was beating properly again).

So began A. M. Hargrove's career as a YA/NA and Adult Romance writer. Her books include Kissing Fire, Edge of Disaster, Shattered Edge, the series the Guardians of Vesturon (Survival, Resurrection, Determinant, Beginnings and reEmergent), Dark Waltz and the upcoming release Tragically Flawed.

Other than being in love with being in love, she loves chocolate, ice cream and coffee and is positive they should be added as part of the USDA food groups.

(If you're wondering, it didn't happen EXACTLY that way, but….)
