MY THOUGHTS


If you like the style of romantic suspense that was popular in the '80s and into the '90s or you like the style of Susanne Brockmann than this is probably something you'll love.  This Author's style of writing reminded me of her work quite a lot...and I, used to like this...but sometimes our tastes change, including our taste in books.

Laden with the type of characters that are so-hot-you-can't-take-your-eyes-off-of-them and a romance that I didn't feel was truly believable.  This book just didn't do anything for me...and overall it felt like she just kept throwing in plot twists to make up for actual substance.  Sadly, this kind of book just isn't my cuppa, at least not anymore.  I should also mention that the narration by a guy, especially this particular guy, really killed the vibe for me and maybe it could have been better if it had a female narrator for the female POV.  Although, it might not have made a difference.
