9780857987167Missing you – Kylie Kaden

A tantalising love story and a seductive suspense novel: ‘Our lives were built around the strength of a kiss between strangers. Yet seven years on, look where it led us …’ When Aisha met Ryan she fell hard for his good looks and easy charm. Why worry that he didn’t want children or a 9 to 5 job? Nothing and no one would come between them. But with the birth of their high-needs son, Eli, their extraordinary love is shackled into an ordinary life, their passion blunted by responsibility. Until Ryan can’t take it anymore. Then, following a mysterious phone call late one night, Aisha leaves four-year-old Eli in the care of her elderly father Patrick – and doesn’t come back…

A love story mixed with suspense.  When Aisha met Ryan she fell hard for good looks and easy charm.  Why worry that he didn’t want children, or that Aisha didn’t want to marry. Nothing or no one would come between them.  Fast forward a year, not only are they married, but they have a son with high needs, they feel stifled by responsibilities. Add in a grandfather, a twin brother, an ex-roommate and an ex-boyfriend, and this makes for a well written easy to read story.  A real page turner with each chapter leaving you wanting to know what happens next.
