Book Summary from Goodreads
For Fallon Wayland, birthdays are just another reminder of her looming spinsterhood. This year is shaping up to be no different. Unfairly fired from her job, dumped by her boyfriend, and oh yes, witnessing the murder of a high-ranking lieutenant in the local crime family… Yeah, birthdays suck.
Ever since a disastrous, hot-as-hell kiss years ago, soldier-turned-security specialist Shane Roarke has avoided his baby sister’s reckless—and gorgeous—best friend. Yet when her life is threatened after she witnesses a gang hit, he insists on protecting her…even if she objects.
The two are forced to hole up in a safe house. Alone. Passion long denied erupts between them, burning away their inhibitions. But even as layers—and clothes—are peeled away, danger closes in. Shane and Fallon might finally have a chance at love…if they survive long enough to see it.
A tweet, really...
Witness to Passion by Naima Simone was a flaming page-turner—yes, it’s high on the heat meter. The beginning was unexpected, and it was at that point that I realized I was in too deep to set the book down. That was until my tablet ran out of battery power, but that's beside the point. Fallon went through witnessing a heinous crime, unemployment, and having a target on her back—just too much for one heroine to bear—hell, it was too much for me as the reader to bear. Fallon was too stubborn for her own good or safety--so not good. Although this was a fictional situation, I just felt so bad for the character and all of her sudden misfortunes and had to know how it would all play out. Shane was an alpha male that sought to protect Fallon, but he got a little sidetracked as the tension mounted and their feelings for one another came into play. Needless to say, they found themselves in some harrowing situations, which kept me glued to the pages until the very end. As for the ending it was shocking and it left me saying, “Whoa, plot twist!”
Overall, Witness to Passion is a suspenseful page-turner with heart-pounding action that’ll take you on an emotional ride. It’s simply another enjoyable summer read.
