Received book from publisher to review.

A reckless adventure in a deadly paradise.

Thrill seekers Zakary and Gideon Stark travel the globe in search of extreme adventure, but a trip to Venezuela to jump off the world’s highest falls catapults them into a perilous game of life or death—where they don’t know the rules.

A one-night stand that will change his life forever.

Kidnapped with a woman Zak knows nothing about, the brothers are held prisoner deep in the jungle. A risky, death defying escape separates them and nearly claims Zak’s life . . . until his recovery reveals a baffling new sixth sense.

An unexpected diversion with lethal consequences.

Now, to find his missing brother, Zak and the mysterious Acadia Gray will have to out-smart, out-gun, and out-maneuver not just the brutal kidnappers but also a new player who joins the adrenaline game: a ruthless opponent who wants the Stark brothers dead—at any cost.
This just so happens to be the first book for me by Cherry Adair. I was told I had to read her so when I was asked to do this review I was super excited! And I can honestly say I will be reading more Adair in the near future.

Hush tends to start off when Zak and Acadia are Kidnapped after having a one night stand. Now that I couldn't believe, but Cherry made it all work. Anyhoo, Zak is action packed hero and Acadia is a woman who wants no adventure in her life, but after winning the lottery she takes a tiny vacation with some of her girls. Now Zak and her have to trust in each other to get themselves out of this mess with there lives still intact.

Acadia tended to be a tad on the annoying side but there were some parts I would she had a good sense of humor so it made her bearable. I thought it was amusing that she was prepared for this little trip through Venezuela. For instance she has this suit she wears and so many little pockets. In the those little pockets is everything and I do mean everything. I was a big fan of  the banter between Zak and Acadia. Zak's had an attitude and knew how to use it but made it all the more fun. Although, Acadia was scared, I liked her not backing down attitude all the most. This woman wasn't going to let these men get the best of her or nor was she going to stand a side and them them do all the work. Zak is used to getting himself out of tough situations, but even with this one he will need a little help from his sexy counter part.

Cherry Adair did an excellent job of describing the scenery (hell makes me what to go there). The action was no stop so it felt as if you were just right there along with them. The plot moved at a steady pace that I loved. Before I knew it the story was finished and I for sure wanted more. The book was nothing but action and suspense. The one thing I had a problem with was they kept saying they smelt wonderful while everyone else stank. Now lets be serious if your stuck in the jungle for days without a shower and you are sweating...let me be honest you will not smell so wonderful.

This is an action packed romantic suspense you will enjoy HUSH. Tons of questions are brought up and some are even answered. It for sure will keep you guessing. Even I was surprised who the bad guy was. All I kept saying to myself is "WOW, never would have thought." If you want an exciting and thrilling ride get lost in this deadly paradise.

I'm giving Hush a rating of:


Thanks for that wonderful review Danielle!


  1. I've heard a lot of things about Hush, but this review has really made me want to read it. I have a few Cherry Adair books on my external harddrive, but I haven't read any yet (because I'm both lazy and busy, lol) I think I'll have to rectify that situation soon!

  2. Excellent review. Sounds like a book full of action. Love those :).
