The summary: Thrill seekers Zakary and Gideon Stark travel the globe in search of extreme adventure, but a trip to Venezuela to jump off the world’s highest falls catapults them into a perilous game of life or death—where they don’t know the rules. Kidnapped with a woman Zak knows nothing about, the brothers are held prisoner deep in the jungle. A risky, deathdefying escape separates them and nearly claims Zak’s life . . . until his recovery reveals a baffling new sixth sense. Now, to find his missing brother, Zak and the mysterious Acadia Gray will have to out-smart, out-gun, and out-maneuver not just the brutal kidnappers but also a new player who joins the adrenaline game: a ruthless opponent who wants the Stark brothers dead—at any cost.
And here is Sam's review:
For the 2012 Rita Reader challenge, I read Hush by Cherry Adair. I found it to a be a fast and entertaining read. This isn’t to say that the book wasn’t completely ridiculous. If Hush was a movie it would be a combo of Romancing the Stone and Conan the Barbarian. Romancing the Stone because Hush involves a mismatched couple on a jungle adventure. Conan because it has all the subtlety of Arnie in a loincloth.
Two of my favorite scenes in the book involve the heroine’s outfit. The first: when she whipped a tent out of her … pants. The second: when she pulled a battery-powered fan out of her vest and spent two days cooling her feverish companion in the pants tent.
Ridiculous as it sounds, I couldn’t wait for the feverishly hot man to rip off her vest. He couldn’t either. Even with life-threatening injuries, all he could think about was getting her out of her twenty-eight pocket travel vest.
Now for the part that reminds me of Arnie the most… I can just see him earnestly acting and me laughing until I can’t breathe.
The back of the book mentions that the hero develops a “sixth sense.” I figured it would be something based on his deep connection with the heroine. Like telepathy. Boy was I wrong. He actually becomes a human GPS.
This is the first time I’ve ever read a romance novel with a human GPS, but hopefully not the last. I give Hush a B+ for being funny and sexy.
