Netgalley ARC Review - His Innocent Lover by Leslie North


Slade Security is hot on the heels of a dangerous assailant, and it’s up to Trent Larson, ex-Navy SEAL and Slade team member, to infiltrate the organization where the mole is hiding. When he meets Chloe Baker, he knows he’s found his perfect way in. Getting close to the naïve receptionist with the dazzling green eyes and open smile is easy. But Trent wasn’t counting on the curves hidden beneath Chloe’s baggy clothes, or his inexplicable need to protect her. 

Wyoming native Chloe Baker has always been too trusting—first with her alcoholic father and then her ex-fiancé. A fresh start in San Diego is what she needs to put the past behind her and earn some money for her father’s hospital bills. When Trent Larson, with his ocean-blue eyes and sun-streaked hair walks into her life, Chloe agrees to a date. Soon, though, she starts to wonder if there’s something more to the sexy surfer than he’s telling her. 

Trent knows he’s blurring the boundaries of his assignment, but he can’t stop himself from wanting to get closer to Chloe. But if she finds out she’s being lied to, it could mean the end to everything. 


Even though I really liked the cover and the synopsis, I didn't really enjoy the book as much as I first thought. The characters were fun and interesting but the general story lacked passion. Plus, I felt that Trent played a not so good agent. It was too predictable and just bad acting on his part. The author was right on with Chloe being naive and a bit too trusting. 

However there was a some seriously delicious sex scenes. It wasn't a terrible story. I did like parts of it just not the overall story. His Innocent Lover received a Two and a half Stars from me. Like I said, it wasn't too bad, but definitely not great either.
