Here is my review of Trusting Taylor by Susan Stoker.
Former military man turned government assassin Kellan “Eagle” Trowbridge isn’t looking for love. He’d rather keep his head down at his cover job as an employee of Silverstone Towing. That all changes, however, when he meets Taylor Cardin.
Beautiful, smart, and witty Taylor instantly falls for the mysterious tow truck driver, who comforts her both in the aftermath of the car crash she sees firsthand and when the police dismiss her as a credible witness because of her prosopagnosia, or face blindness. Eagle, on the other hand, can remember every person he’s ever met—and the two counterparts forge an immediate connection. But someone else is just as intrigued by Taylor’s unique condition as Eagle is…and his intentions are downright deadly.
Soon, Eagle and Taylor are too caught up in each other to see the danger that’s approaching. But as time runs out, they’ll discover their love isn’t the only thing fighting to survive. [Amazon]
This is a very unique story. I had never heard of prosopagnosia, but apparently, 2% of the population suffers from it. I can’t imagine not recognizing a family member or a friend. “What are the odds?” she asked. “The odds of what?” Eagle asked, still somewhat in a daze. “Of us meeting. I don’t recognize anyone, and you recognize everyone.” “Seems to me it’s fate,” Eagle told her.
“Taylor can’t recognize faces, even her own. If you showed me a lineup of pictures and included mine, I wouldn’t be able to tell you which picture was me.” Growing up, she was shuffled from one foster family to the next. She never fit in anywhere. And then she met Eagle and everything changed.
Eagle hated grocery shopping. But their cook was on a little vacation and someone had to do it. When he arrived at the store, things were in chaos. “He noticed a woman standing by herself nearby with her arms around her stomach. She was biting her lip . . . and the expression on her face hit him like a punch to the gut.”
