Intensely emotional scenes can be found all throughout the latest Man on a Mission story, and Amelia Autin makes each situation highly realistic. This author is known for creating stories which are very convincing because of how believable each development comes across, and I was totally caught up in uncovering what would ultimately happen in the lives of her newest romantic couple. There are a large number of touching discussions and honest feelings depicted in the book, and unexpected threats are perfectly interwoven into the compelling love story. RESCUED BY THE BILLIONAIRE CEO is a gripping novel of emotional realism and frightening danger.
After making a career change to work as the assistant to an actor, Alana Richardson moves to Hong Kong and hopes she made the right decision. What she did not expect was to be snatched off the street by ruthless assailants and taken to an unknown location. Her future looks dire until a man manages to get her safely away from the area. Alana has no idea who he is, but she is certainly thankful yet also curious.
Though Jason Moore owns a successful electronics company in Hong Kong, his actions with another venture called Right Makes Might actually bring him even more satisfaction. It does not take Alana long to deduce who her savior is because of a connection with her employer, and she admires his willingness to carry out covert missions to help those in danger. While Jason believes it would be better for him to ignore the potent pull between him and Alana, he decides discovering if their attraction could lead anywhere is worth the risk.
I know a story written by Amelia Autin will completely hold my interest on every page, and RESCUED BY THE BILLIONAIRE CEO proves this fact again and again. Jason and Alana are a couple whose personal problems could certainly exist, and any reactions to difficulties that arise are also very imaginable. Their sentiments range from painful memories to overwhelming joy to angry outbursts, and I felt as though each response was spot-on for the circumstances taking place. During heartfelt conversations, I was profoundly affected by either what Alana or Jason said. Then there are the instances where these two divulged their innermost feelings in thoughts which contained much sincerity.
While Alana tries to be truthful when she talks with Jason, he does keep some parts of his life a secret because he does not want to influence her opinion about him. There is also a part of his past that still affects him as an adult, and the skillful writing of Ms. Autin had me experiencing much empathy for him. Alana is definitely a compassionate person, and her ease in making others feel better had me respecting this amazing woman. The relationship of these two is filled with many ups and downs, where passion is particularly genuine and feelings can be candidly frank or left unspoken. Any dangerous aspects are all too real, and wanting to know how everything would end kept me reading. The Hong Kong setting is very colorfully described, and I often felt as though I was right there with the characters. Several individuals from past stories are featured from time to time, but enough is revealed about them to make this story a standalone.
I voluntarily reviewed the book and all comments are my honest opinion
