Brimming with angst and sensuality, Beth Yarnall’s Recovered Innocence series kicks into high gear as a hotheaded P.I. unleashes one lawyer’s deepest passions—and greatest temptations.
Nolan: Nothing’s ever come easy for me, especially not my dream job at Nash Security and Investigations. Righting wrongs is what I’m meant to do . . . except I manage to blow the very first chance I get. So why don’t they fire me on the spot? Hell, I’d fire myself if I could. Instead, my boss hands me an assignment that’s too important to screw up—and partners me with Lila Garcia, a gorgeous attorney with curves so distracting they should be illegal.
Lila: Like my client, a grieving mother charged with the murder of her own son, I know how quickly the American dream can become a nightmare. If anybody can help me clear her name, it’s Nash Security and Investigations. But Nolan Perry is a wild card. Bending the truth, breaking the law—that’s his business. I need to focus on the evidence. Not on how Nolan’s body fits so perfectly against mine. With a case this personal—and this dangerous—losing control is simply not an option . . . no matter how badly I want to give in.

Nolan and Lila. Life has never been easy for these two always throwing them curves and hardships. They eventually find their purpose by helping the innocence, lost, and frightened. One becomes a lawyer for The Freedom project while the other becomes a private investigator. Their paths cross on a case neither expected to unfold as well as an attraction that quickly builds that cannot stop.
This is my first Beth Yarnall book and I cannot believe I am just now reading her one of her books. I will be honest that the first thing that attracted me to Reclaim is the cover. Who does not love a man shrouded in mystery?! Then the synopsis hooked me. Romantic Suspense has always been a favorite of mine and now it seems that everyone is trying it out. Lately, a lot of them have fell flat but Reclaim reminded me of how much I love this genre.
Nolan made me fall for him on the first page. “I’m kind of a f**k up”; what man will actually admit that! This book did not leave me feeling like I did not know what was going on and explained what happened within the first few pages. I loved that he was such a ‘dude’ and not someone who faked who he was or what he wanted. He gave as much as he took in every aspect of his life. He is the perfect counterpart to Lila. She was afraid of letting anyone in that she kept everyone at arm’s length.
There were certain small things that bugged me about Reclaim however. Lila thought everyone was out to get her; but more the immigrants of the United States in general. She believed that everyone is a racist and felt attacked most of the time. She was aggressive which I liked but she hypocritical and did not know what she wanted, besides the physical. I also think Nolan overreacted when he finally got Lila to reveal her dark secret. I know it is a lot to take in but he could have handled that better. Although, he was man enough to come back and reveal to Lila his insecurities.
Overall I really loved this book and will go back for more!
