**Rachel & Lori's Reviews** BEHIND THE BLINDFOLD (Volume 1) by Natalie Wrye

                         BEHIND THE BLINDFOLD (Volume 1)
                                     by Natalie Wrye

A flash of green eyes, and then…he was gone.

Mysterious, secluded, powerful, seductive.

Mark Rich shows up in a gallery, and then at a party, and then in Saturday’s dreams.

Wealthy? Yes. Sexy? God, yes.

But who is he? Ostensibly, he appears to be a jack-of-all-trades – a multifaceted Renaissance man.

Her artistic heart will follow him to the depths of his realm, to a world of beauty, art and desire in which she so desperately wants entry.

But Mark has a dark secret…deeper than any shadow Saturday has ever encountered.

Blinded by a craving she has never known, will she find the strength to remove the mask and look past her heart into a reality that may shatter her?



The hardest part about reviewing a romantic suspense novel is making sure not to give too much information away!  
Let me start by saying this was a fantastic debut novel by Natalie Wrye.  The slow buildup for the first half of the book really set the stage for the reader to want Mark and Saturday to get together.  But with each step forward, they seemed to also be forced further back.

Between the many secrets, the twists and turns of their rocky love story, I was captivated with how this would all turn out!  

**Do note that this is Volume 1 in a two-part novella series - and boy, oh boy, does it leave you hanging!!!!!  But never fear, volume two is already out, so you can cruise right through to the next book.

4 Hearts for me!



This was a fabulous debut novel!  Behind the Blindfold is a romantic suspense that will keep you guessing with each page – and loving every minute of it.
Saturday & Mark are perfect when they are together – their chemistry electric.  Throughout the book, Mark will confuse you, he will piss you off…yet he will keep you turning the pages to try and figure him out.  I loved how this book kept me on my toes, leaving me clueless, making me want more so I could solve the puzzle that is Mark Rich.  This story is full of unexpected twists and turns.  Just when you think you may have figured something out – NOPE! Wrong answer – try again.  Great story, fabulous writing & amazing characters!

Warning:  major cliffhanger!  Second warning:  You will want book 2 immediately!  Good news:  It’s available and you can dive right in!

This was a quick & enjoyable read.  I highly recommend this novella if you love a well-written, romantic suspense that sucks you right in from the beginning and keeps you turning the pages until the very end.  

This gets 4 suspenseful & enigmatic hearts from me!
