I was given Code Name: Luminous for an honest review by Natasza Waters
Lumin wakes up next to a dead man that she was trying to help and now she is in trouble and her only hope is a Navy SEAL she met back in December. He left a major impression on her and she has thought of him often but never expected to see him again.
Tony likes his love them and leave them life style but since December he has only really ever thought of Lumin. Now she is in trouble and he will do what it takes to save her but he isn't ready to lose his heart. Yeah Right!!
This story has really hit a cord in my heart, my youngest daughter is in the Navy, so it has hit close to home in some ways. I don't know how much research Natasza did to make her book plausible from the military standpoint but it kept me riveted to each page. I loved the characters especially Kayla and her "are you really gonna give me that bullshit" attitude that I could see in my head when she and the Admiral were discussing things and I could almost see her trying to hide a smirk the whole time to. I could feel Tony's confusion when it came to Lumin and his guilt when he screwed up and she would run away from him. If it weren't for the fact that I could really sense Lumin's genuine desire the do right I would have thought she was being manipulative and I would have been wrong.
There wasn't much in the bedroom department but what there was, was somewhere between sweet and oh yeah baby! I think my favorite one was when they were on the phone together and imagining they were together, holy moly.
I also want to thank you Natasza for giving me an edited copy of Code Name: Luminous, it makes the story so much better when I don't have to try and figure out what a paragraph is about and how it fits or what the missing word in a sentence is so that being said, THANK YOU.
I look forward to reading more.
