"There was something about him sitting there, all proper and businesslike, that made her feel extra naughty.
This is good, with a truly anti-social, abrupt, dry (but w/ heat) hero and perfect forceful, wall breaking heroine but something about the overall story flow or structure isn't quite clicking for me."
A bad boy trying to make good. A good girl in over her head. The one man that has the answers they seek and the task that could get them both killed. Lucy and Ben had me teetering on the edge. Leslie North taps into the bad boy fantasy and lets her imagination run wild. We dream them up and she delivers the goods. Ben is a man with much to lose and not a lot to give. Lucy is the woman who can save his soul. If she can survive the fall. Get the fire extinguisher, because Her Russian Fixer is a five alarm special.
What a surprise ending!
That wasn't what I expected at all. I had a feeling this would be good, but I didn't think it'd be that good. J.C is one bad-ass dude!!!
The best part for me, though the ending rocked, was how he dealt with a bunch of punks that broke into his place. Epic, I tell ya! I can't wait to start the next one, which there is five in total.
People who love action and tough guys will love this series!
A mediocre reading month...some good...some not so good, some good but long (everything under the sun). I listened to more books than I physically read this month by far, including a re-listen/read for an old favorite. I did not read a single arc...I think that's due to me feeling like I don't want to be a guinea pig for new books. Essentially, that's what you are, after all, which is the price you pay for being able to read books before they come out. I'm just not sure if I want to do it anymore.
