Book Review - Loving Eva by Camellia Hart

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Anniek

Eva took over her father's company after his death. She has no experience in leading such a big business, but she's determined to do whatever it takes to keep her interior design firm on top of the game. Someone has been following Eva around and has threatened her safety. Before he died her father wrote her a note with only one sentence, Trust No One. Eva is confused because surely she can trust her uncle, her best friends and her father's lawyer. Or did her father really mean for her not to trust a single soul? Will Eva find out who's after her before it's too late?

Clive is a powerful and successful businessman. Before he met Eva, Clive didn't do love or relationships. He made it a game to always have a different woman on his arm whenever he made the headlines again. Clive has a troubled past, one that still haunts him. His childhood sweetheart, Olivia, died because of an overdose and he feels that he should have been there for her. Now that the death of Olivia is under investigation yet again, Clive can't stop thinking about all of those sad moments. Can Clive overcome his fear and tell Eva about what happened before someone else does?

Clive and Eva actually met once before during their teenage years, at a party. Clive fell in love with her and they shared their first kiss. He was never able to find her again but now that she is back in his life Clive isn't willing to let her slip away. Eva is a woman a lot of people admire. She is beautiful, kind and loyal. She is also not afraid to fight for what she wants. Eva is smart and she's a quick thinker. I love to read books about strong female characters and Loving Eva definitely falls into that category. Clive is gorgeous, he's former military and FBI, and for that alone my heart missed a couple of beats. He's so sweet and caring towards his family and he takes good care of Eva. I fell in love with him immediately when I started reading the first book in this series, Chasing Eva, and I was glad I could read more about him.

Loving Eva is the second book of the In Light of Shadows series. It continues Eva and Clive's story after Chasing Eva ended with a cliffhanger. I couldn't wait to find out what would happen next and Loving Eva didn't dissappoint. It's fast-paced with plenty of unexpected twists and turns. The In Light of Shadows series is Camellia Hart's debut series. She's an amazing writer who knows how to pull you in from the very beginning. Loving Eva is the second book in a series of three and I absolutely can't wait to read the ending of this addictive story.

Advice

Loving Eva is a beautiful story about how true love conquers all storms. Loving Eva is part of the In Light of Shadows series and because of the fact that Eva and Clive's story is written in three parts I'd recommend you to read the books in chronological order.

  11. The note struck me right away: "Trust No One." So, is Eva [able] to trust herself? Can she trust the message written on the note itself, as it was written by her father?
    Very interesting book! Thank you for the review.

  12. Remember the saying There is nothing to fear, but fear itself'? Sometimes that really is all that holds us back from achieving our dreams.
