Jan 17, Jacqueline J rated it really liked it Recommends it for: contemporary romance readers Shelves: from-the-library , romantic-suspense , cop-fbi , grovel-scene I liked this book.
The writing was tight and there was much more showing than telling. There were several very amusing parts and the tone of the book stayed consistant throughout without being in any way farcical. The characters were well drawn and believable as were the interesting minor characters. The plot made sense and I liked that the story resolved around a smaller crime than terrorists or serial killers. I liked this book. The author was able to keep several questions unanswered until the end.
I loved how the hero, Jake, would do something and then tell himself that the sons of Baptist preachers do those sorts of things. He made some mistakes and he did some very nice grovelling at the end to get the heroine back. I will definitely be reading more of this author. I probably would have given this book more stars if I could stand Macy even a little bit. She was such an idiot who was always running off on her own when she knew someone was trying to kill her.
Jake was wonderful!! The family interactions were really funny. The editing needs some work. One of my biggest issues was the lack of quotation marks at the start of a sentence. It messed with the flow of my reading 3. It messed with the flow of my reading and made me backtrack to make sure I was actually reading a quote.
Overall a good book that was worth my time. I like this book as well but it was just missing things. I needed to see them as a couple in future things.
