Rosanna Selim can't recall almost two years of her life, but it hasn't stopped her from loving her job as a paralegal with one of the top defense firms in Cleveland, Ohio. It also hasn't affected her relationship with sexy, charming homicide detective, Houston Cassidy. Until he tells her about a twelve-year old case. As images invade both her waking and dreaming states, she's certain that uncovering the truth means losing Houston.
Houston has been unlucky in love because of dedication to his job, so he's determined not to screw things up with Rosanna. She's sexy, beautiful, and the most easy going woman he's ever met. He adores her. But when she tells him about the images, and as she works with a therapist to recover her memories, Houston has to come to terms with the possibility that she's the killer in a case he's been trying to solve for twelve years.

I'll be the first to admit, I'm a HUGE Ravenna Tate fan, so I was super excited when this book came out because I love this series so far, but I have to say that as much as I loved the other books, this one, by far, blew me away. I mean, I think this may be my favorite book from her ever. I ran through the gamut of emotions from laughing to crying and I was seriously bummed out when it was all over. (Because it was over.)
Houston Cassidy is a police detective who has been a detective for 12 years. He's gone through 3 marriages because of it, but he wouldn't give it up. He also has a girlfriend, Rosanna Selim, who he is crazy about. His partner Annie, who drives him and all the rest of the precinct crazy, has found a lead on a cold case. His very first case as detective.
He tells Rosanna about the case, and she starts having nightmares along with ages old flashes of dark images. Houston starts to suspect that Rosanna may just be the suspect he's been looking for. If she is, then she may have lived through something horrible.
I seriously felt for both characters in this book as both Houston and Annie's investigation progressed and Rosanna not only had to deal with lost memories, but with Houston being a bit of a jerk for a while, and then dealing with her repressed memories when they come to light. Aside from Houston's period of being said jerk, he really was a great guy. And I liked Annie, maybe she'll have a book. All in all, if I could give this more than 5 Stars, I certainly would. Just an awesome read!!!

Houston Cassidy might well have the perfect girlfriend. Having worked his way through three wives and three divorces, his present girlfriend is incredibly understanding of the crazy hours he keeps as a police detective. Beautiful, exotic Rosanna Selim works as a paralegal for a law firm and loves spending time with her boyfriend. That is until he casually brings up a cold case and then, the nightmares begin. Later diagnosed with focal retrograde amnesia, suddenly their copacetic relationship becomes mired in a murder case that Rosanna has no memory of.
This is a clever story. I found the backstory intriguing, as Houston is caught in the middle between protecting Rosanna and finding the answers to his long-asked questions. As more information on that fateful night in January 2005 comes out, will it be at the expense of his girlfriend's freedom?
If you love a good suspense story that is the backdrop for a great relationship story, then you definitely want to give UNDENIABLE a chance. It's compelling in all the right ways and will hold your attention from start to finish.
UNDENIABLE is book 4 in the Tortured Love series by Ravenna Tate and it's exactly that. If there aren't any warnings, there's a tiny bit of kink involved but it isn't over the top or out of place to the story.
