Cade’s life changed five years ago. His car accident and almost drowning due to being plunged into the East River brought a lot of things to light and changed his course forever. Now he is a freelance coder and has been traveling from island to island in the Pacific looking for a place to call home.

Nadia, an agent, had to make a choice five years ago… to complete her mission or save her mark. She saved Cade from drowning by providing air to him while waiting on the first responders. The course of her life changed that night as she abandoned the life she had. For the last five years, she’s been in hiding hoping to never be found.

Cade is enjoying a traditional dance at the resort in Rarotonga along with his dinner meal and a drink when suddenly he spots her. Off to the side stands the woman who saved his life five years ago. Not only does he want answers, but he finds her stunning. Will Nadia be able to allow Cade into her life?

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.

Moonlit Mirage is the first in Amy McKinley’s Moonlit Destination series, and I for one did not hesitate to dive headfirst into this series. Unlike some of her other books this one is a novella so it doesn’t go into as much depth as her others but per usual Ms. McKinley takes her readers on a wild romantic ride with this book. Much to my excitement although a shorter story Ms. McKinley still captured me from the very beginning and provided us with all of our favorite ingredients for a romance story including suspense, excitement, danger, and most of all romance. If this novella is an indicator in how the series is going to go then I for one can’t wait to see where Amy McKinley takes us next.

Amy McKinley has done it again. I really have found a new favourite author! This girl can write, and she does it really well!
In Moonlit Mirage, Cade Malone is in a car accident and an underwater angel saves him but then disappears. Years go by and he continues to think about her and what she did but still has not found her. He vows that if he ever does, he won’t let her get away.
When their paths finally cross, secrets from the past are revealed which could make or break their chance at a relationship but the truth must be revealed.
I thought this book was the perfect length! It was a quick read that caught my attention right from the beginning and held it for the entirety. I also liked that it tied into another of Amy’s series which made me want to buy and read them too!

A cute quick read

This book was one of those quick but cute books. It took me about thirty minutes to read. Nadia and Cade are cute together. They both have struggled with things that I will not mention due to spoilers and I’m not about that spoiler life. The book is fast pace. Yet it isn’t to the point that you will be scratching your head asking what happened. My main takeaway was that it was a cute story about a cute couple.

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.

Oh what a web we weave when we deceive! Nadia has woven quite the web when Cade runs into her again several years after she has rescued him from drowning. The spark is still there but secrets are being hidden under the surface. Can this romance hold up once the secrets are out? Is it strong enough to stand? Cade and Nadia are so well-written that you can feel every feeling they have as you read this story. The plot, twisted as it is, kept me on the edge of my seat from page 1.

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.
