Until an unexpected call one night, sends her racing to the lab where she discovers a secret that could change the world forever.
Hauke awakens after an underwater explosion, strapped to a bed and on his way to a site known as Area 51. His only hope for survival lies in Abbie Sutherland, the beautiful doctor that saved his life. Amidst a deadly virus, seemingly impossible to stop, and a corrupt Government placing a price on their heads, Hauke and Abbie run for their lives, uncovering conspiracies, deceptions, and a love that won’t be denied…

Recommend reading the books in order. This is not a serial, and it does have a happy ever after, but the story moves forward with a new hero and heroine in the next book

Full Review:

Enigma is one of those books left me with low expectations after reading the blurb. The cover is enticing and the fact that it has such high ratings on Amazon is what ultimately convinced me to pick it up. Although the elements in the description occur, the way it is presented sounds much more cheesy than the book actually is. The book itself is pretty well written but that isn’t reflected with the blurb.

This book follows Abbie, a doctor who was saved after nearly downing in the water as a child by a boy she could never forget..or explain. After doing a little detective work to figure out why her father is lying to her, she stumbles upon a strange man strapped to a bed in the place her father works. Immediately drawn to him, Abbie shifts into protective mode and breaks him out before he is taken somewhere he can’t escape from. Immediately recognizing her as the girl from so many years ago, Hauke sets his sights on protecting Abbie at all costs and searching for the truth of what happened to his family.

One of my favorite things about a good writer is their ability to take something that logically seems too ridiculous to enjoy and making it completely relatable. Now don’t get me wrong, this book is pretty far-fetched and contains a high cheddar (cheesy..get it?) factor at certain points but still, the experience this book provides is entertaining and even cute in parts. This is one of those fluff reads that helps pass your day and decrease your stress by thinking of something other than bills and work.

I would recommend this to anyone mature enough to read it that enjoys a decently short read with action and romance.
