Review: Double Take by Leslie Kelly
Double Take - Leslie Kelly

http://witandsin.blogspot.com/2014/04/review-double-take-by-leslie-kelly.html

 

Double Take is a fast-paced, sexy read with two protagonists who meet when their lives are at a crossroads. Mike’s a cop who tired of constantly putting his life on the line while working for the Chicago P.D. He’s seeing if life in the slow lane as a small town chief of police is for him, and his plans don’t involve being fiercely attracted to Wild Boar Island’s newest substitute teacher. While Mike’s a hot, protective hero who’s easy to like, it’s the subject of his desire who really makes Double Take memorable. Lindsey Smith is a sex therapist who needs to lie low after the media turns her serious research into a meme-worthy joke. I not only adored Lindsey, my heart broke for her. She’s a hardworking, intelligent woman who doesn’t deserve the ridicule heaped on her.

Unfortunately, Wild Boar Island may not be the best place for Lindsey to get a fresh start. Though I’m sure there are plenty of lovely residents in the small town, the ones highlighted in the story made me cringe and overall made the tale slightly less enjoyable. But when the story isn’t focused on Lindsey and Mike avoiding slimy men or self-righteous harridans, it sparkles with humor and steams with sexual tension. Both in bed and out, Mike and Lindsey make a great couple and it was a joy to watch them overcome their internal barriers (most of them Lindsey’s) to get the happily ever after they deserve.

Double Take is erotic, emotional, and ultimately enjoyable. Fans of author Leslie Kelly’s Santori family will be delighted by the cameos some of her past heroes and heroines make. As for me, Double Takeis my first Santori tale and I’m intrigued enough by these sexy Italians to take a peek into Ms. Kelly’s Santori backlist.

Night Class & Chosen
Night Class - Hannah Crow
Chosen - Kristin Cast,P.C. Cast

Somehow, "that looks familiar" covers are more jarring to me when I recognize that one is traditionally published versus both of them being self-published or small pub.

 

I only remember noticing reused cover art once back in the days before I read and paid attention to e-books. Now I feel like I see it all the time.

Double Take - Alyssa Turner This was an interesting story. I was often wondering to myself whether Eaglecorp was just some sort of socialized government masquerading as a money-making venture. It sort of made sense... some horrible thing happens, the government steps in to take care of its people. Gives "credits" in return for work. Only this government/corporation overstepped in a major way and essentially took over the lives of its employees. And if you were against the corporation, you were the enemy.

Shannon is doing well in the corporation. She has a good job, a sharp mind. Two years before, she'd been abducted by a group of the resistance. They held her for several weeks while trying to get a ransom from the corporation. Shannon sort of fell in love with one of her captors, even though she'd never seen his face. He protected her somewhat from the ringleader.

Now, two years later, she's getting a new employee, who is the twin of the captor she fell in love with, though she doesn't know this immediately. She only knows she's attracted to him. He is there to try to expose the corporation's seedier side -- the corporation takes part in many activities that the regular folk would find distasteful if they knew. And Shannon is a sympathizer of the resistance because of her abduction, but she must walk a fine line or be found out.

And along the way, both her former captor, Tristan, and his twin, Pryor, fall in love with Shannon and vice versa. And Shannon finds her own strength along the way.

I liked the chemistry between the three. I liked how protective Tristan was of her and how Pryor was more willing to let her make her own decisions and take her own chances. And I liked how she stood up to them. I'm wondering if there will be a follow-up since Mariana was not killed. Plus the end opened up the possibility of more story. It was a very interesting futuristic story.

I marked this one as having minor editing issues. There were a few words misused, as well as one place where a name was not changed. (I presume Pryor was Paxton at some point... either that, or there was an extra guy in one scene who didn't exist anywhere else!) Most of the issues looked like maybe something was edited, but a verb tense wasn't changed to go along with the rewrite. They weren't huge mistakes, but distracting to me.

Double Take - Alyssa Turner Take a sexy and adventurous ride into the future where office romances are encouraged and walking around outside on the ground unarmed without a hazmat-like suit is virtual suicide.

Welcome to the post-apocalyptic world, where life as we currently know it is a distant memory. Traditional government is a thing of the past and everyone and everything is ruled by Eaglecorp - dare to defy their authority and pay with your life. Shannon is one of the lucky ones in charge of uncovering everyone's secrets for Eaglecorp, but she soon discovers that not all is as it seems in her perfect world of the "Platinum Class" of society. In a bizarre twist of fate, Shannon finds herself on the other side of the law and right in between the smokin' hot bodies of twin ex-military resistance fighters who have a mission they plan to complete and now have a woman they plan to claim.

DOUBLE TAKE is suspenseful, exciting and erotic. I am not typically drawn to post-apocalyptic novels, but this one caught my eye. Alyssa Turner did a wonderful job with the world building aspect of the story, it was extremely well thought out and I thoroughly enjoyed it. If you are looking for a story that will suck you in to another time and place and turn you on, then DOUBLE TAKE just might be the story for you!
