You know, I mostly liked this one, but a H who is as concerned with getting in the h's pants as he is with keeping her alive...yeah. It does not help that she'd, in telling him her life story, basically clued him in that she wasn't looking for a fling, and his history with relationships indicated he wasn't much better than her adoptive father.
Really dude, she told you no for a reason. Her mom divorced her dad after entirely too many holidays alone, and your wife divorced you for similar reasons - as you told her.
Of course, he finally succeeds, figures out afterward that he's in over his head as far as this relationship goes, and panics. In his mental freakout (and possibly, arrogance), he was careless and she was shot.
I kept hearing Jack Ryan's voice though - "I'm just an analyst!" The H was a code breaker; not a field agent.
My onliest gripe with the h was that she didn't hold out, and tell him why. I almost prefer the romantic suspenses where sex never happens. Seems to me that too many authors have the H thinking with the wrong head too much to be v. effective at his job.
Another solid entry in the Star Wars cannon. This continues the story of Darth Vader and what happened to him after the destruction of the Death Star in the first film. I like the new characters introduced in this series, and it is good to see how Vader progressed after the initial defeat. Looking forward to the next one.
Izzy is working for a celebrity client and when she finds a dead body in the trunk of a car things get complicated. The cops ask her to keep the body in the trunk, and act like it never happened. While also continuing her job, this gets even more crazy of Izzy.
Conner isn't happy with Izzy working this case, but he knows that he can't stop her, so he and his sister offer to help her out with it. But that makes it a little more dangerous as well.
This book was another great addition to this series. I adored Izzy and Conner together, and I really enjoyed the plot line as well. I'm wondering if Izzy's neighbor is going to figure out what she really does for a living, and I can't wait for more in this series.
