Carry and her friend are kidnapped by Badar and his brothers, Cet, Cim, and Cad.  Badar says that they have something in common that makes her uniquely theirs.  After several adventures together, Carry decides she can love the four.  But will her friend and outside influences keep them from being happy?

Lover’s Knot of Four was interesting as there was lots of intrigue and suspense.  One thing the author did was pull in some of the headlines about the NSA that brought chills as some things could really happen.  The author did a good job showing some situations that create scenarios about Stockholm Syndrome.  I did have some questions that weren’t answered about where the men might have come from, or how they came to do what they could do.  Very little though is not out of the realm of possibility. 

I wasn’t too happy with the men’s attitude at first, nor did I really learn to like Badar.  Some things that happened could trigger unpleasant memories for some readers.  The chemistry between the men and Carry was intense, though it seemed like Carry was overwhelmed at times.  I liked that Carry did not fall for them too quickly, but it was interesting to see how she contributed to the team once she did, including suggesting the wedding.

The security company had some interesting characters including a lawyer.  I loved when the bad guy got put in his place.  The suspense at the end, right until the last sentence, was intense, and I wish there had been just a little bit more after that. 

This is the first book by this author that I have read, and it won’t be my last.  I will be reading this one again.
