So Zoe Blake Is fast becoming a go-to author for me.
Her reads may be quick but I find they deliver every time.
And Defying Him for me was no different.
So this book has a little bit of everything and though low on angst and lacking major secondary characters it still packed a mega punch.
The mystery and atmospheric unease throughout more than making up for the short length here and I really did enjoy this tale.
So Phoebe is an investigative journalist working undercover as an English professor at the military academy at Buzzards Bay.
lieutenant Colonel Michael Lawson / The Commander is the marine brought in by the Navy to act as head and flush out the murderer that is using the academy as a camouflage for there criminal actions.
Sparks fly straight from the get-go between these two and their chemistry together was certainly sizzling hot.
I can always rely on a Zoe Blake story to get my pulse raised, Defying him was no exception perhaps maybe a little less graphic than some of her other works but it was by no means low on the heat factor.
I loved the overall mystery conveyed here and this was such an easy and at times, creepy read.
Both Phoebe and Michael were extremely likeable individuals that were easy to relate to.
My only major criticism here was an action of Michaels near the end.

Shaking my head in utter disbelief here.

So despite that one issue, I did enjoy The rest of this book it was an enthralling quick read that I am happy to recommend.
I was provided with an ARC of “Defying Him” By the author of which I have reviewed voluntary.
All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
