Ica Iova is a skilled author who makes her characters feel very real. “Boundaries” is her second book and as soon as I finished it I downloaded “She Never Got To Say Goodbye.”
First off I admit, I was predisposed to like Boundaries because it was set in Vancouver, British Columbia—the most beautiful city in the province I live in. But once I started to read I got drawn into Gabriela Parson and Landon Godchild’s world and to be honest I forgot about the beautiful city that I know because it ultimately took me to the darker, seedy side of it.
Can you imagine what it would be like to be Gabriela, landing the job of her dreams in a prestigious law firm, determined to prove her worth—only to discover that her handsome, sexy boss, is a man that she’d had a blurry one night stand with years ago. Not only did she not recognise him at first, but how shocking to discover that he clearly remembers her. And he wants to pick up where they left off!
Iova clearly portrayed Gabriela’s struggle with herself. To become intimately involved with her boss is against her rules, her principles and is also a certain route to professional suicide. But Landon does everything he can to persuade her to bend her rules.
But this book becomes so much more than a simple romance when Gabriela starts to dig deeper into the case that she is working on with Langdon and suspicion and doubts arise about Jack Richwood and her boss.
Her best friend, Bianca Miller, and Gabriela start to “investigate” on their own and find themselves in unimagined danger. I found myself reading anxiously, hoping that somehow they would be found before it was too late.
