Veiled Seduction: Veiled, Book 2
Veiled Seduction by Alisha Ria
Release Date: June 1st 2010
Details: ebook
Series: Veiled Series
Summary (goodreads):
Beneath Dr. Maira Khan’s reserved exterior, her heart beats triple-time for only one man: Sasha Karimi. For two years she’s waited patiently for the handsome police lieutenant to wake up and see her as more than a buddy. When he’s injured in the line of duty, though, she realizes time is too precious to waste. Ditching her scrubs—and her shyness—she cooks up her very first seduction.

Sasha’s had a hell of a week. Thanks to the national media, amorous women are pouring out of the woodwork, all wanting a piece of America’s newest “hero”. The biggest disappointment? Maira seems to have contracted the same case of mass hysteria. Betrayed, he pushes her away—but not before he samples a taste of her luscious mouth and body.

It works. Maira retreats, mortified and ashamed. And Sasha realizes he’s just driven away the perfect woman. Now all he needs is a foolproof plan to win her back, starting with a proper courtship—and restraining his lust. Except once Maira glimpses the man behind the uniform, she sets out to show him that pure need has its own ideas about what’s proper…

To be honest, I liked this one a lot better than I liked Veiled Desire.

Sasha ends up hospitalized after saving kids from being gunned down. Maira who's a long term friend of both Sasha and his family is the youngest in her profession. At least, at her hospital. When she finds out that the police officer who had been injured was Sasha, her calm and collected exterior falls to pieces. And with Mason, Sasha's best friend and brother in law to witness. On the up side, at least Sasha wasn't awake.

I found that Maira was such an easy character to relate to. She's hard working, comes from a conservative family, and puts on this collected personality because of her job. She has a good heart and even though she's young, she's not stupid. Sasha on the other hand, always kind of annoyed me. He's a good person but just so set in his own ways. It was nice to see another part of the big bad Sasha though! To see their friendship and relationship on its roller coaster ride was definitely a fun journey to witness. I'm glad to see a bit of Mason and Leyla in there and see how their story turned out after Veiled Desire

But like Veiled Desire, I wished this book was a bit longer. It does leave you with a sense of closure but at the same time, it has the potential to be so much more. I especially feel that way about this book, it could be an amazing erotic romance!

Favorite Line:
"If it'll make you feel better, maybe I'll show him exactly how much I appreciate him once you go home tonight." She paused. "Was that too vague? I meant in bed." - 23% (there's no pages on the Kindle. Oh and I loved Leyla more in this one than in Veiled Desire!)
