Enigma of Life (Enigma #1) by Shandi Boyes – Review by Shannon Fowler

Enigma of Life (Enigma #1)Enigma of Life by Shandi Boyes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This story would have easily been a five star if there had actually been a little less sex! (I can’t believe I just wrote that!) But really. Our main characters are Isaac Holt and Isabelle Brahn. And boy oh boy do they have a lot of sex together. Bathrooms, airplanes, counters, cars. Yeah a lot of sex. They also have a lot of secrets from each other. I’m not really sure how I feel about these two. There is no denying the chemistry and lust they have but do they have more than that? Can they really have a relationship in the true sense of the word?

“His mouth-watering scent invades my senses and spurns on my pursuit to offer him comfort in the only way I know how. Sexually.”

I think even Isabelle hopes there is more to them. “I know my relationship with Isaac could be construed as only being based on lust and attraction.”

I liked the feeling while I was reading that something big was going to happen. There are a few characters mentioned and situations referred to that could add up to a big explosion in the end.
Did I mention the sex? There’s a lot of it. I’m worried about what happens when their work lives meet their private lives. It seems the secrets that they keep from each other may just be the ultimate downfall or that big explosion in the end. Isaac says “If you are going to be accused of something, you may as well do it.” To me this is a little foreboding and may actually be the catalyst to the explosion!

Just when I thought the “relationship” might turn into something a little more than just very hot sex, like maybe a happily ever after, real life meets work life, which equals the end of this book! GRRRR!! And BOOM! Shandi Boyes certainly had me turning the pages as fast as I could!

Definitely only for those readers over 18. Quickly moving onto book two to find out what happens with these two!
