AJ Hamilton never expected his life to spiral so low. Tangled up with Baltimore's largest crime boss, The Magician, he is ordered to threaten a bothersome reporter. His attraction to Megan Rogers was as unexpected as was their heated encounter. AJ tries to warn her off. When she doesn't heed his advice, he's forced to protect her from herself. After witnessing something that puts their lives in danger, he kidnaps her.

When AJ saves Megan from the clutches of certain death, they must go on the run to stay alive. Tensions are high and their passions flare as they fight to stay one step ahead of The Magician. As they put their plan to expose him into action, AJ is forced to make a choice. But no matter the option he chooses, he may not be able to protect her or their hearts.

Wow! Wow! Wow! I am still amazed at what I read even after several days have passed.  This was a beautifully written romantic suspense novel. I was on pins and needles throughout the entire book.  I had the suspect pool, nicely narrowed down, but I was shocked when it was finally revealed who the mastermind was. It left me speechless as I never saw that one coming. I admit there were subtle signs pointing to this particular person, but I dismissed it as I believed that they just did not have it in them.  It just goes to show things are never really what they seem. I don’t want to say too much about the plot as it may lead to spoilers. You will need to go into this story blindly.

HIS Choice by Sheila Kell is the second book in the HIS series. I enjoyed the first book in the series so I was glad to receive a complimentary copy of this installment in exchange for a honest review. I enjoyed this copy just as much as the first book. I guess by now you have figured based on my introduction that this story shocked my system.  I found it to be an absorbing read.

In this installment, readers are introduced to Megan Rogers and A. J. Hamilton.  Megan is an investigative journalist who is determined to uncover the identity of the Magician, the biggest crime lord in Baltimore. Her determination was fuelled by her desire to find out what happened to her brother who had gone missing. She is convinced that the Magician is responsible for his disappearance. While conducting her investigation, she ran into A.J who is working as an enforcer for the Magician.  The chemistry between these two was so hot that for a moment I thought my Kindle would have caught on fire. What follows is a story of intense proportions.

The characters are real and easy to relate to. I found Megan to be tenacious when it came to getting a story. She did not stop to think of the danger associated with what she was doing, however, it was easy to understand her motivation. For her it was not just about getting a story, but uncovering the truth.  It was this tenacity that placed her in the Magican’s crosshairs forcing A. J. to protect her at all cost. It was evident that A.J had secrets which he was not willing to reveal. This, however, proved difficult to hide given that he was in the company of a tenacious investigative journalist. Being on the run together led to  them growing closer, thus allowing Megan to realise that A.J may not be what he seems. During this time the attraction that was evident from their first meeting grew with much intensity.

The story grabbed my attention from the first page. It flowed and the pacing was well balanced. The author’s writing style was amazing. She made everything come alive, so much that I felt I was a part of every scene.


HIS Choice is a gripping and intense read.  It will appeal to fans of romance, mystery and suspense. This book kept me awake as I was intent on finishing it.  Everything about this book had me hooked. I am now waiting with bated breath for the next book in the series.
