Action , suspense, passion and drama loads and loads of drama!
I bawled my eyes during most of this read, but as all readers know tears are the sign that a book is a not just a book it is the perfect escape into a whole other world and the more you cry the more you know the author has done her job by climbing right into your soul. I highly recommend this read for all fans of dramatic, action packed romance reads. You will be blown away by Rachel Brimble and her simply fantastic world! Rachel bring on the next one NOW!

I truely enjoyed this book and honestly, by the half way mark,,,I couldn't put it down!! Dec 14, Julie Gettys rated it it was amazing. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Rachel is a wonderful writer. Her characters are well developed. There's plenty of emotions both in the love story and the mystery. As in all these books the romance concluding on a positive note is a forgone conclusion, so we have to have enough reason to believe these two will have trouble pulling this off. The author does drum up enough tension between Chris and Angela to go their separate ways, but the mystery and fine writing save the day.

Rachel writes from the heart and says it splendidly. I have already preordered her next book due out in February, Apr 06, Stephanie Cage rated it it was amazing. I fell in love with Templeton Cove in 'Finding Justice' and in 'A Man Like Him' we get to learn more about the people in this charming seaside village, and to see what happens to Cat and Jay after the end of their story. Chris, Cat's brother, is a perfectly believable character and a perfect hero: Angela, the manager of Templeton Cove's holiday park, is so clearly the person who brings out the best in him, but their relationship is convincingly threatened by her stalker ex-husband.
Everything about this story was believable and exciting with the possible exception of how easy it was for Angela to keep a gun, and how unfussed the police seemed to be by the fact that she was prepared to defend herself with it Jan 06, Cristi rated it really liked it. To be honest I liked it more than I thought I would. It seemed like it would be one of those romance novels that was overkill on the cheesy romance.
- Trout Lessons: Freewheeling Tactics and Alternative Techniques for the Difficult Days.
- Emanuel Swedenborg: Visionary Savant in the Age of Reason (SWEDENBORG STUDIES).
This book was not. Angela's character was really reluctant to be with Chris. Chris was a little too perfect. I know that it was mentioned that he had a bad past, but it seemed like he was too perfect in the present. It may sound horrible but I would have liked to hear more about Angela's past with Robert. Overall this book was a pretty good romance novel. I would recommend this for all those who like "trashy" romance novels because this one is actually worth the read.

I was excited to have another opportunity to read and review a book by Rachel Brimble. I had my first taste of her earlier this year and had a feeling that I would like this book as much as the other one. Before the book even gets started, Rachel tells us that this is more of a personal story for her, as she and her family were among those who were caught in the floods of and had to be rescused from a rooftop. Others weren't so lucky. I could feel her emotion as she relived that I was excited to have another opportunity to read and review a book by Rachel Brimble. I could feel her emotion as she relived that experience by writing a similar disaster in this story.
I even had a tear or two in my eyes as I tried to imagine the horror. Luckily, that horrible part doesn't go on forever. The flood is the foundation for the good, the bad, and the ugly that happens in this story, but it isn't the whole story. I do think she could write another book based on her experiences, though. Anyway, both Chris and Angela are damaged souls. Chris is trying to get over losing his fiancee to another man. Angela has been on the run from an abusive husband. Yes, they are drawn together thanks to a tragedy, but are both also reawakened. The threat of Robert coming after Angela bonds them as Angela is determined to stop living her life in fear and Chris is determined to actually take care of someone about whom he cares deeply.
At the same time, they are both quite fearful of giving in to someone again, after having been so hurt in the past. I can't say that I blame them. A rapidly developing romance based on crisis and fear isn't one that is necessarily going to make it long-term.regi.janoszsigmond.ro/uj__/citafet/whatsapp-ile-sohbet-uygulamasi.html
The two of them have plenty of ups and downs as they try to protect themselves from the psychotic ex-husband who is now threatening all of Rachel's loved ones. They have a long road ahead of them, should they decide to maintain this relationship. There are a lot of pros and cons, but you find yourself rooting for them to make it and hope they can find the same faith in love that you have as the reader.
There is plenty of action and suspense as they are forced to take matters into their own hands when it comes to apprehending Robert. It's not an FBI thriller, but will still keep you glued to the Kindle screen. Yes, it is somewhat predictable and formulaic, but the storytelling makes it worth it.
Rachel has successfully added unique story ideas to a familiar plot, to make it her own. I found this to be a great escape and yet again look forward to reading another one of her books. I received a complimentary ecopy in exchange for my honest review. Received 4 stars RT Book Reviews.

A Man Like Him (Templeton Cove, #2) by Rachel Brimble
She was afraid to love again or have a man in her life. Chris helped her to see she could be independent and be in a relationship. The story kept me engaged and wanting to see how the story ends. Apr 07, Tracy Sylvester rated it it was amazing. Angela Taylor had a marriage made of nightmares. Now she is divorced, living in a new town, and wanting to move on with her life.
When Chris Forrester shows up and catches Angela's attention she immediately thinks the new stranger to her vacation spot may be on the lurk for her ex-husband. Chris is trying to mend a broken heart and feels drawn to Angela. This book has romance, intrigue, mystery and excitement all wrapped into it.
Definite page turner, you won't want to put it down.
A Man Like Him
Dec 14, Lucinda rated it liked it. This truly is a touching romantic tale that warms the heart and makes little butterflies tremor in your tummy.
The unexpected depth of emotion and profound poignancy within this stirring story caught me unawares, as the author evidently wrote this tale with sincerity and injected within it her own personal feelings. Chris is physically good looking and soon they become closer, and yet there is always that invisible barrier in-between them that threatens a more intimate and deeper relationship.
How can Angela tell him that getting close to her will endanger his life? At least, that's what Angela keeps telling herself… Both Angela and Chris are fantastic, strong characters whose story and journey really captures your interest from the first instance that you encounter them. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this engaging, compelling story and so I highly recommend it. I would like to take this opportunity of thanking the author and also Carol for the giveaway of this brilliant book! Aug 07, Mandi Schreiner rated it liked it Shelves: I feel like the suspense over-powered the romance.
And I didn't like the end.
This is the 1st book I read by Rachel Brimble. I liked how Angela helped save everyone. I thought Angela was so brave. I didn't like how Angela treated Chris. The rest of this story didn't really interest me.
