Should be a movie

This is a fast paced thrill ride. Definitely not for the faint of heart. Fabulous narration.

A HEA but not 1 kiss?

I think I liked this book. I thought Dani’s constant running and hiding from the US Marshalls was kind of crazy, but I kind of understood it. I did like how tough she was when it came to getting away from the bad guy, as well as the Marshalls. And yet, the book made you think she was heading right into the bad guy’s hands, without realizing it. And you can sure tell this is a pretty old book by the way they talked about the computers. We’ve come a long way since 1999, when this book was published.

This really wasn’t a romance, either. At 40% Matt and Dani still hadn’t met, except for a stairwell chat that lasted for about 2 sentences, and he was a couple of flights up, looking down at her when he spoke, then she walked out and jumped on a Harley and took off. Oh, Matt had begun to have feelings for Dani since the first time he saw her picture, thinking she was dead, and thinking he had missed something by not knowing her when she was alive. And those feeling only got worse and more confusing when he found out she wasn’t dead. And then she couldn’t stop thinking about him either, once she’d spoken to him on the stairs. It was sweet thoughts, not anything sexual, sorta’ like desire, but not. AND I think the author should have made the hero younger (he was 45) or stop complaining about his aches and pains.

It was a pretty good story, overall, but it wasn’t very realistic. If you spent time around “real” cops, especially in the 90’s and 2000’s you know they swore like crazy. So, to write a book like this is a little unreal. It was ONLY a story about Marshalls, witnesses and hired killers, who didn’t have sex and didn’t swear.

If you’re looking for something hot and steamy, keep looking, because he NEVER even kissed her, though there was words of wanting that went through their minds occasionally. No real swearing to speak of, da*n, h*ll, sh*t, that’s all, and they weren’t used that much. A very good book for someone looking for a G-rated book. And as much as I enjoyed it I won’t be reading this author again. Her kind of writing is a little too mild for me.

There were a lot of good secondary characters in this book: Dark Lord, Alice, Riggs, Luke, Sebastian, Meathook, Kelly, Peg, Richard Hastings, Bates, Orsini, and some I’ve forgotten.

As to the narrator: He was just OK for me. His women’s voice weren’t very good and he read without an ounce of emotion but he gave the hero and the hero’s brother a very sexy voice. He narrated this book in 2012 so I’m sure he much better now.
