Description

Her first kiss. Her first love. Her first heartbreak.

Graham was all those things.

Now, twelve years later, Natalie has to face old wounds when she is forced to ask Graham for help finding her missing students.

Graham has never forgotten Natalie, or their first kiss. The sketch in his office―the one she drew of a Nighthawk, the one he named his business after―reminds him daily of the woman that got away. The life he could have had.

Natalie will need to decide is she’s willing to risk her heart again, but only if she can convince him heroes can have relationships and still save lives.

When Natalie goes missing, he discovers his inner demons are not alone in conniving to destroy their budding relationship. Graham will call on every skill he’s ever learned to save her. Will he find his heart’s guiding star in time? Or will they both be trapped in the darkness forever?

Natalie’s Nighthawk is the first book in the Nighthawk Search and Rescue series. A standalone, full length, second chance novel with no cliffhanger, no cheating, and a guaranteed happily ever after.

Warning: this book contains scenes discussing domestic abuse which might be unsettling for some readers.

"I could not stop reading once I started! Amanda really blew me away with this storyline and these characters who show such a depth of emotions that I think we can all relate to in some way. A great combination of action, adventure, suspense, and love. Highly recommended read!"

This book was so good. There was banter, there was steam, there was funny situations. It helps you get a feel for what is going to more than likely going to go on though out the rest of the series. It was definitely a great read.

Natalie has always had a thing for Graham. They were neighbors when they were kids and become friends. As they got older they moved in different clicks at school. Graham was the super popular athlete while Natalie was the art nerd. One day while Natalie was walking home Graham offered her a ride. They stopped at a spot by the lake that would become very important to both of them. It is where Graham changed his idea of what kind of girl he wanted and where Natalie cemented in her mind that Graham was the one for her. They shared a kiss then started home when a tornado struck. They watched in horror as it ripped through their neighborhood. Now as adults Natalie is an art teacher at an elementary school and she needs to hire Graham’s company Nighthawk to help find the two missing students. Nighthawk was created by Graham and his brother David and a lot of it had to deal with that fateful day that he shared a kiss with Natalie. Now that they are meeting again after twelve years they noticed that they both have the same feelings from high school and now they are even stronger. Graham is determined to date Natalie and see where things go. Has they do Natalie has a lot of unfortunate events happen to her that are becoming serious. It seems like someone is after her. Will they be able to find who it is and maintain their growing relationship?

Great introduction to a new series. Has all the things I look for when picking a new read: reconnecting friends, friends to lovers, personal conflicts, surviving trauma, mystery, unexpected plot twists, and drama. I was pleasantly surprised how this book grabbed me and kept me enthralled throughout. This is the first book by Amanda Zook that I have read, but it won’t be the last.
This is the first book in the series Nighthawk Search & Rescue. It focuses on Natalie and Graham, former childhood friends and neighbors, reconnecting after Maddie, Natalie’s sister, takes Natalie to Nighthawk Search & Rescue to get them to help find two of Natalie’s students who went missing.
Natalie and Graham were childhood friends who grew up together but did not socialize with each other as teens. One day, while in high school, Graham gave Natalie a ride home. They wound up spending the afternoon together talking about anything and everything. Natalie received her first kiss that day. That day changed their lives in many ways. When they arrived home they watched a tornado destroy they neighborhood. They had no more contact with each other until that day twelve years later when Maddie (Natalie’s sister) brought her to the rescue company owned by Graham and his brother David. The plot flowed so easily: from the reunion of the two former friends, their new developing relationship, sharing their past traumas with each other and the challenges they faced were so well written. It kept me guessing and even surprised me a couple times. Learning about what search & rescue workers do and the physical and psychological effects it has on it’s workers was an added bonus.
I can’t wait to read the rest of the books in this series and learn the journeys of the rest of the “Nighthawk family” including Natalie’s sister Maddie and Graham’s brother David.
I received a free Kindle copy of this book courtesy of NetGalley and the publisher with the understanding that I would post my unbiased review on NetGalley, Goodreads, Amazon and I willingly offer my honest review.
