I've grown accustomed to her flaws
This is my 12th book by TS. For me, reading one of her books is like listening to an old friend. Some of my old friends don't tell the best stories, but I still am comfortable with them. TS is not the greatest story teller, yet I feel comfortable with her.
TS started her career writing romance, but was not too successful with it. Now that she has hit the big time, she is going back to it. I discovered her when she was writing medical thrillers and she usually had some weird aspect to her story. In Harvest she had afterbirth, with an eye and it was living. Then her Rizzoli series got picked up by TBS Or USA? And now she is famous.
This book is mostly romance. Of the few romance I have read I like this best, but that is not saying much. It is just not my thing. Do not try to figure the mystery out in this as no clues are given to you in order to do so. Nina the female lead starts out with one of the worst days ever, her fiance leaves her standing at the alter, the church gets blown up and somebody tries to kill her. Later she falls in love with a cop, seduces him and tells him it is just one night, don't worry about anything else. The next morning she sinks her claws in him and tries to own him. He tells her no, but she doesn't listen. This may not seem right, but is so typical. I also did not care for the transformation of the bad guy. At the beginning he is suppose to be smart and crafty, but then he cracks up and gets sloppy. So, sloppy it is almost stupid.
If your not into romance, then listen or read Life Support, Gravity, The Surgeon, Ice Cold or The Apprentice. All great TS books.
Narrator is just ok, can't do male voices well at all.

Not what I have come to expect from Tess Gerritsen
Until now, Tess Gerritsen was, for me, equivalent to "edge of your seat" thrillers and characters full of personality. The Harvest, Gravity, wonderful medical thrillers. Her Jane Rizzoli in The Surgeon... superb. And now, this book that had me repeating "oh please" as I hit the forward button to bypass the unbelievable nonsensical musings of the two main characters. I actually had to go back and make sure that this was a book by the same Tess Gerritsen that I had come to enjoy so much reading; in short, if you are a Tess Gerritsen fan, don't bother with this book, you will be very disappointed.
