Happy Release Week & #Review of Sheik’s Rescue (Desert Justice #2) by Ryshia Kennie! @ryshiakennie


As a sheik, he always got what he wanted—until he met his beautiful and challenging new partner… 

Zafir Al-Nassar knows everything about Jade Van Everett. He’s studied the cases she’s worked for his family’s company and for the FBI. And it’s hard not to notice that she’s absolutely gorgeous. Teaming up for a routine security detail, Jade is desperate to prove herself and Zafir can’t help but admire her determination. But when their assignment turns deadly, it becomes difficult to stay focused on the job. Because although they were hired to protect a Morrocan royal from a trained assassin, Zafir also has every intention of keeping Jade safe and by his side. Forever.

Another sheik for me to drool over.  I will have to warn you though, these brothers are mine.  Sorry peeps but I claim all of them.  Sheiks are a very big weakness for me and my guiltiest pleasure when it comes to heroes in a book.  Shocked you?  You shouldn’t be since I’m such a tropy reader.  The tropy the better.  Bring it.

Anyway, I will have to say that this book is much more action orientated.  Not much in the smexy times but when Zafir and Jade kiss, it’s like lightening in a bottle.  You can feel the connection and the HEA that they both deserve.  One of the things that I loved about Zafir that has much as a playboy that he is, he fell hard for Jade.  It was almost like love at first sight but it made sense.  He had already read everything about her that he could before he even met her and I actually liked that.  I know, it goes against the grain of instant love but with him, it wasn’t.  He just knew you know.

Jade is such a bad*ss in this book.  She is fearless, completely unaware of her appeal to Zafir.  She just wants to do the job.  Code white is what they called it but it quickly turned to red in a heartbeat.  And the person they were protecting was a hoot.  Stanley is a complex character that takes awhile to get to know but peeling those layers is fun.  I also liked how Ms. Kennie made Stanley human.  The dogs…

Like I said, this book is clocked full of action and it never stops.  It seems like they are constantly on the run and the end climax left me breathless.  I also liked seeing Talib and Emir.  I can’t wait to get my hands on Talib’s story.  If I had one, tiny thing about the book is that I would have liked to have seen or at least heard about Kate.  I miss her and I would have like to hear her say something to Fasir when it comes to falling for Jade.

This book has everything.  Passion, exotic settings, characters that you can love and swoon over and a climax that I never saw coming.  Breathtaking is what this book is.
