HIS by Glenna Sinclair
HIS by Glenna Sinclair is the first part of a three part An Alpha Billionaire series. It is an adult romance novel that follows Ana. She agreed to be a surrogate to Hollywood's hottest couple. But soon realizes things aren't what she expected them to be.
Ana is a typical kindergarten teacher willing to do ANYTHING to help her mom. When her mom is diagnosed with cancer, Ana signs up as a candidate to be a surrogate for Hollywood's hottest couple: Nicolas and Aurora Costa. Much to her surprise, she is chosen. Soon after the insemination, Aurora is found dead from a suspected drug overdose. Ana gets scared for herself as well as the baby and runs away, only to have Nicolas find her. He provides her with a story about Aurora and convinces Ana to return with him. Ana has no idea what is in store for her. How does one react to the things she discovers?
The first novel in a series is supposed to set the stage, build up suspense and interest for the novels that follow. Glenna Sinclair's His does just that. She creates a fantastic story that takes her readers on an interesting journey in Ana's life. Readers watch as Ana struggles with her decisions and their consequences. We worry with her when it seems there may be something wrong with the baby. Glenna creates a wonderful character in her, as for Nicolas, he remains as much of a mystery to the readers as he does Ana. That is one of the elements that drives the novel forward; readers wanting to know more about this mysterious character and what his motives are.
The story is well written and progresses at a good pace. Not once did it feel like the story was too slow or fast, in fact I was the one reading it so fast in order to find out what happens next! I finished it within a few hours. I thought having Ana as the surrogate to Nicholas and his wife was an interesting touch. Rather than two people meeting by chance, there was a purpose for her in his life. This adds a little more..hmm...scandal to the story. The story ends on a cliffhanger of sorts, I thought to myself "no there needs to be more!" when I finished the book. Sinclair knows how to make her readers want, need the next installment.
I would recommend this novel to those who love a steamy romance with a little mystery involved. I give this novel a 5 out of 5 rating. It is a very good read. Can't wait for the next one.
