First I owe a HUGE apology to Dellani Oakes for not posting this review months ago. You see, I wrote the review and saved it in MS Word but never posted it online. It only came to my attention when I went to Twitter and saw the words Book Review trending yesterday. Wanting to participate, I went to Amazon but saw my review for Undiscovered by Dellani Oakes wasn’t there. Thinking the Amazon police took it down, I went to Goodreads and nope, nothing there either. That’s when I realized what I did or in this case, didn’t do.
I swear ever since I turned 35, it’s been all down hill memory wise. Anyway, sorry Dellani and here’s your overdue review.
Dellani Oakes is back with another romantic suspense and she brings it with Undiscovered. The story begins with a hot shot movie producer nearly gunned down on a Daytona beach in broad daylight. Despite the assassin’s attempt to stay concealed, he is spotted by a witness, Cadence Stuart. Fearing for his witness’s life, Detective Scott has to do what he can to keep her alive until the killer(s) can be found.
However things get complicated when he falls desperately in love/lust with Cadence. Things get even more sticky when his partner and ex, Vanessa Weinstein, is also assigned the case. As volatile as the situation seems, it’s the perfect solution, Vanessa, with the help of Scott’s friends, keep him in check while they all do their best to protect their only witness. As the killer closes in, secrets are revealed and the case is blown wide open when a photo reveals more about the identity of the perp.
Undiscovered is a romance novel filled with just the right amount of suspense, humor and strong characters for a discerning reader. Dellani Oakes does a magnificent job of taking us through a dangerous and often times thrilling, Daytona Beach. If you like your cops and robbers hot then this is the book for you!
