Review - Endangered Hearts by Amanda Lance

Title: Endangered Hearts by Amanda Lance
Publication Date: February 20th, 2014
Genre: New Adult, Romance
Find it at: Goodreads

Emilia Ward is being watched.
And it isn’t just by her mother’s creep of a boyfriend or one of her many employers. Instead, she is certain it something else—someone else. However, in a life with college classes and alcoholic mother to look after, Emilia doesn’t have time to explore her suspicions. She would much rather think about her new job at Iram Manor, and more importantly—its mysterious and alluring owner.
After a lifetime of isolation and trapped in a disfigured body Kasper Zafar thought he knew pain. Confining himself to his work as an architect and the love of his music, he never expects the beautiful Emilia Ward to enter his life. Young and naive, his new housekeeper does not flinch at the sight of him, and is even so bold as to call him her friend.
Determined to teach her in all worldly things, the opposites grow closer and the role of student and teacher interchange. Yet Emilia’s life outside the manor is not a happy one, and when Kasper’s attempt to watch over her fails, both will discover than love may be the most painful thing of all.

I have received this book as part of a blog tour in exchange of an honest review.
This is the first book I’ve read by Amanda Lance but it definitely won’t be the last.
When Emilia starts work as housekeeper for the reclusive Kasper Zafar, their relationship quickly becomes more than just a professional one.
I was hooked on the story right from the start. The characters are very interesting as well as the situations they find themselves involved in. 
These characters are complex and likeable and, in the end, I couldn’t help but to want everything to work out for them.
Plotwise, Endangered Hearts is almost like a contemporary version of the beauty and the beast and I loved the twists the author added to the story.  The employer/employee relationship between Kasper and Emilia is well constructed and interesting.
All in all, Endangered Hearts is a well-written, easy to read and entertaining story. I enjoyed the book right from the start and couldn’t put it down. The author did a great job with it.
If you are a fan of New Adult Romance you should give this book a try.
