excerpt

The sound of the garage door going up startled me, setting me into motion. It was a good thing I had been trained to make split second decisions with limited information because that skill set was being put to the test right now. I moved toward the kitchen as I ran the possible scenarios through my head. If it was Serena using a friend’s place to lay low, then I was in the clear. If it was a boyfriend or family member of the dead author, I was probably screwed. A cleaning person or friend, I might be okay. The bottom line was, I had no way of knowing which scenario I was about to face, but it didn’t matter. There wasn’t a chance in hell I was going out the back without knowing if the person walking through that door was Serena.

Right as my decision was made, I heard the sound of the garage door lowering, quickly followed by the door connecting the garage to the house opening and closing. A deep feminine sigh resonated, but I stayed in position, on the other side of the refrigerator and out of sight. The sound of footsteps got closer and then a woman entered the kitchen. I hadn’t meant to make a noise, but I shifted as soon as I realized who was standing in front of me. I moved toward her so I could cover her mouth and get her under control before she screamed and one of the neighbors came to see what was wrong. And holy fuck, there was plenty wrong with this situation since the woman was supposed to be dead.

about the author

Rochelle Paige

I absolutely adore reading—always have and always will.  When I was growing up, my friends used to tease me when I would trail after them, trying to read and walk at the same time.  If I have downtime, odds are you will find me reading or writing.

I am the mother of two wonderful sons who have inspired me to chase my dream of being an author.  I want them to learn from me that you can live your dream as long as you are willing to work for it.

When I told my mom that my new year’s resolution was to self-publish a book in 2013, she pretty much told me, “About time!”

my review

4.5 Stars

If this book’s unfolding plot doesn’t completely tempt you, then the sexual chemistry between Delia and Blaine certainly will. Holy freaking hotness. I couldn’t put Identity Crisis down. The story was enticing but it really was the characters that captivated my attention.

Blaine is a retired Navy seal who rushes off to assist a friend who seemed desperate for help. He had no clue what he was walking into and with each moment investigating, it becomes more and more complicated. Partly because what he finds isn’t what he expected – Delia.

Delia is one tough cookie. She is smart and savvy – you instantly like her. Her character brings humor and spunk to the scenes she’s involved in. She brings out an intense and protective side in Blaine. It’s both sweet and incredibly sexy.

The two are fighting against time and an unknown criminal force. It’s exciting and you cannot put the book down. Blaine and Delia’s romance is an exciting and entertaining ride. I highly recommend Identity Crisis.
