2ND REVIEW. 1ST REVIEW IS HERE.
Lise has been acting very strangely. And when she cancels her plans to go visit her family in Texas for Thanksgiving, Joshua decides to do something about it. However, when he gets there, he discovers her problems are right down his alley. Driven by his former Army Ranger and mercenary skills, he decides to take care of Lise’s stalker. But will they both be ready to face their passion for each other?
The plot is pretty much normal for a romantic suspense novel, but it doesn’t make this novel any less sweet. :) Even though the plot is kind of predictable, like most suspense novels, it had it’s own special spark.
One of the things that made the book enjoyable are the descriptions, events, and characters’ personalities all made this book much more enjoyable (and took it away from the norm a little bit). Another thing I enjoyed is some of the interactions between all of the characters in the book. I even laughed at some of the interactions, conversations, and thoughts. Some of it was definitely amusing to read.
The love/smut scenes were also enjoyable since the author did a pretty good job at describing them and other scenes that are in the book. One more interesting thing is that, it has condom scenes, which not many romance books (that I have read) mention putting on a condom.
Also, it had a nice blend of suspense and romance since it focuses on how the stalker brings their unresolved feelings out in the open. The ending is pretty good, but it was pretty much an average romance (and romantic suspense) ending.
This is the first book in this series; however, there are some connected stories. The connected stories are not apart of this series time-line, but they do mention the characters in this series a little bit. The connected stories are here.
