Comic book artist and conspiracy theorist Marlie Montague leads an ordinary life, happy in her unexciting and mundane existence…until the day the UPS man tries to kill her! She escapes, just barely, and runs to her neighbor’s house.

The last thing Naval Criminal Investigative Service Special Agent and former Navy SEAL Joel Hunter expected to see upon coming out of the shower was his neighbor Marlie breaking into his house. Though he’s been trying to get close to Marlie as part of his investigation on her, so far, Joel hasn’t been successful. The mission is looking up however when Marlie makes contact with him…even if she doesn’t trust him within an inch of her life.

Unbeknownst to Marlie, Joel is investigating her supposed subversive comic books. Joel knows his mission is pointless, but he does his duty regardless. However, when Marlie comes barreling into his house, all bets are off. Suddenly, Marlie and Joel are running from a killer and along the way they discover that there is more to Marlie’s conspiracies than just theories. Somehow she has touched a nerve and Joel and Marlie are on a deadly mission to discover who wants her dead and why.

Action-packed, edgy, tense and equally full of powerful emotions, You Only Love Twice is a spectacular read from cover to cover! Marlie will grab your heart from the get-go. Her personality is a surprising mix of shy and enigmatic artist and kick butt heroine. Joel is an equally appealing surprise of a character. He’s alpha but he has some really sensitive sides to him that make Marlie’s love for him more realistic. Watching Marlie the cautious and Joel the have-no-fear-take-charge-guy fall in love and connect was truly special and momentous.

Lori Wilde has penned a fun and adventurous romance that doesn’t put the romance second to the suspense storyline. She has achieved the perfect balance and for that, readers can be thankful because Ms. Wilde has ensured that You Only Love Twice is a story you’ll be guaranteed to pick up twice or more!
