Release Day Review: Seek by Mia Sheridan

January 22, 2018


Wealthy socialite Olivia Barton never imagined her fiancé would disappear on what was supposed to be a routine business trip. She's even more heartbroken and confused when a hired private investigator tracks him half a world away, to a seaside town in Colombia. But the country has recently been ravaged by a massive earthquake and deadly tsunami, shutting down outside communication and making travel all but impossible. Still, Olivia is determined to make it to Colombia to find the answers she so desperately seeks. What she needs is a guide—a mercenary.


The man named Thomas arrives in shadows, an unmistakable air of danger about him, promising to help lead her through the ruined, crime-infested country. But when Thomas and Olivia find themselves fighting an undeniable attraction, danger takes on a whole new meaning. Then again, in the lush jungles of South America, all the rules are different and Thomas and Olivia are about to discover that sometimes the thing you seek, isn't necessarily the thing you find.

She was sunshine. Warm and bright, too sweet for this cruel, dirty world. Too good.

What a beautiful contemporary romance by the amazing Mia Sheridan. This author is one of my favorites and I would read anything she writes. So when out of nowhere she announced Seek would release soon, I couldn't wait to get my hands on the book. This book is about Olivia (Livvy) and Thomas. Livvy hires Thomas to get her to a seaside town in Colombia. She needs him to get her safely there. I loved that the book was mainly set in Colombia, I haven't read many books set in South-America so it was refreshing. 

You dream like I do. Only... you're more selfless than I am, Thomas. You dream for others.

Thomas is very closed off and is focused on the job. Livvy is just a sweetheart and that was obvious right off the bat. The prologue showed a piece of Thomas' past, and that scene broke my heart. It gives the reader an insight into why Thomas is the way he is. Throughout their trip in Colombia these two become closer and an attraction grows. I loved seeing their attraction develop, and the dual POV really helped me getting to know both of them better. Even though they seem the opposite, there are things they can both relate to. There were a couple of plot twists, of which I predicted some. My heart broke for Livvy when the truth was out in the open.

The dim yellow glow bathed Livvy in shadows and pale yellow light, made her look ethereal, a goddess with flowing hair and alabaster skin. Even the moon loved her. How could it not?

The author did such an incredible job in telling the story and the characters were great. I loved them both so much, and seeing them coming together was just beautiful. They both deserved to be happy after everything they went through. Their love making was so passionate and emotional, I just felt and believed everything. Seek exceeded my expectations and I didn't want this book to end. I wish there was an extra chapter or two focusing on the future, because the epilogue wasn't enough for me. I would love a novella focusing on Livvy and Thomas OR another stand-alone focusing on Thomas' friend Josh. I highly recommend this book: It was emotional, romantic, suspenseful, heartwarming and more. Readers who have enjoyed previous books by Mia will love this one as well.
