My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I can honestly say that romantic suspense is slowly becoming one of my favorite new genres. This is only the second story I have read by Amy McKinley, and each book only gets better.
It is a short read, but still a complete page turner until the end. Nadia was a predator and Cade was her prey. It was a mission that turned disasterous when her feelings could not be put aside, and her only option was walk away and fight the temptation of love. Years to come they both wonder about the other, and the cirumstances of their encounter.
When they meet again its a second chance at possible love, but only if they can overcome the untold secrets and demons of the past.

Amy McKinley proves yet again that she is a magnificent writer that deserves to be on every romance-lovers to-read list with her second book of the Moonlit Destinations series. More suspenseful than the previous and leaving the reader wondering what will happen next, it is no wonder that I finished yet another one of her books in record time. Yet again, I find myself excited to read the next book in this series, and eventually read the series it is connected to, the Gray Ghost series.

The book reels you in from the very first paragraph, with a heart-pounding scene that leaves you questioning what just happened. When the lovers reunite later on, you can’t help but hope that the novel will end with a happy ending, despite many things trying to keep them apart. Another short yet sweet novel, readers will devour this quickly.

This story was laid out nicely. The strong memory that Cade had of Nadia was well thought. I also liked the personal reasons that guided them together. The connection from their past encounter and their present was clever. I didn’t get a strong sense of suspense as I’ve seen in other reviews but the story was carefully thought through. I appreciated the shorter story because I feel that the length may have drawn it out and impacted the feel of the story.

Moonlight Mirage by Amy McKinley is a quick but intense read. It starts with Cade and Nadia meeting under the strangest circumstances and fate bringing them together again years later.

Both hold secrets, Nadia having to do with her job and her up upbringing, Cade with who his family is. Even though they have this unexplainable connection, can they get passed the past to make a go of it?

I was interested in this story from page one and for such a short novel, it certainly packed a punch with a major twist! What a read!

Moonlit Mirage: A Cook Islands Romance (Moonlit Destination Series) by Amy McKinley

I have had the pleasure of reading a few books by Ms. McKinley,  but until this book I had not had the pleasure of listening to one until this one.  I throughly enjoyed the story as well as the narrator (Regan Brown) being able to grab and keep my attention.

Cade and Nadia’s story has romance, suspense and second chances all while in paradise

I loved the connection to a previous series and gasped when I caught it.  This is a quick listen and quite enjoyable.   Looking forward to listening to more.

Moonlit Mirage (A Cook Islands Romance) Audio Book by Amy McKinley

A short, fast moving romance between Nadia and Cade full of suspense and intrigue. The two met 5 years before when Cade’s car went over a bridge into a river due to an accident. Nadia kept him safe by diving into the river and giving him much needed air. It is short but a wonderful introduction to these two characters. I hope that I find any book(s) that these two show up in. This is my first book by this author that I’m excited to check out her books in the future. Nadia has a secret she doesn’t want Cade to find out because she is worried he will not forgive her for it…
The book is narrated by Regan Brown, who did a wonderful job.

5 stars! 

At first I wasn’t sure where this book was going, so I was kind of conflicted about how I would feel about it in the end. I was quickly sucked into the story and the characters lives. I was not so patiently waiting for the story to continue quickly so that I could find out what role each character was playing and what would happen. Nadia seems like such a sweetheart, I really like how she fell in love with Cade and couldn’t follow through with her mission, and still wanted to get a glimpse of him years later. The fact that Cade has a near death experience and still manages to remember the girl who saved him years prior proves in my mind, that they are meant to be. They both follow their gut when it comes to each other and knowing that they are forever. I really enjoyed the drama the unfolded when Cade’s sister notices Nadia and finding out the organization Nadia works for and why. I was sad to have this story end, I was wanting more but was satisfied with the ending.
