*Book source ~ A review copy was provided in exchange for an honest review.
Selina Rogers has worked her tail off and it’s about to pay off with a nice fat promotion at Inferno Enterprises. However, just before she closes a big deal she suffers an attack that throws her off her game. Saved by a masked stranger who helps her deal with the aftermath of nightmares and panic attacks, her self-confidence takes a hit and she’s suddenly questioning herself. Dante, the masked stranger, is more than just her savior. She can feel his pain, his aching loneliness and wants to soothe him the way he’s soothed her. But Dante must follow the rules of his gift even if what he wants most is her.
Oh, man! This is a superhero story with a delicious twist. I love Dante. I love Selina, too. Their characters are reasonably well-rounded and likeable. Though the world could use a bit more building and their relationship a little more meat, for a short story this is one that grabs attention right out of the gate and runs fleet of foot to the end. Speaking of the end, it intrigues me and I wonder when there will be more of this world.
