LIFELINE: an elite search-and-rescue squad based out of Banff, Alberta. Specializing in high-risk rescue missions, this team goes wherever the job takes them...

Rebecca James was once revered for her devil-may-care attitude and backcountry survival skills. But ever since she lost her partner in a fatal accident, patches of her memory have been missing. And until she can recall those final, tragic moments before the accident, she can’t move on.

Since Marcus Landers was permanently injured during a mission, all his energies have been focused on his Lifeline team. When Becki—whom he had an intense affair with seven years ago—arrives in Banff, he’s inspired to reignite the spark they once had. Their mutual ardor slowly awakens Becki’s dormant, haunting memories.

New truths surface until Becki must at last confront her greatest fear. Remembering the past might mean a future without the man she loves...

My rating:

DNF @ 12%

Isn't this supposed to be a romantic suspense story? A better question yet: where is the story? Because all we got so far is the two protagonists panting after one another. It was all (except for the prologue) about the sexual tension between the two. Nothing else.

At least there could've been some character traits that would make the two relatable or something, instead of leaving them one-dimensional husks with the hots for one another. Make me care for the two and for their hots.
