Alicia (is beyond tired of your *ish)
I got this one on a Target clearance shelf for 96 cents! You have no idea how exciting that was. I was close to doing a jig right there in the aisle. Especially since I refuse to go to the book section anymore (oh God, I miss it so) due to a rage inducing fan fiction parading itself as a "book".

I'm getting off track. Where was I?

Oh, right. It was 96 cents!

It's a typical Harlequin romantic suspense from beginning to end. The premise of the story is a good one. A young woman studying abroad is kid
Good book. The kidnapping was talked about in previous books, but we never got anything from Lana's point of view. This is her story. Lana was a bit of a Pollyanna in this book, always seeing the good in things. The problem was that she didn't see the bad things too.

If I could give a negative rating to this book I would. Heroine has one night stand. Figures out she is pregnant two weeks later. Then she is kidnapped by her one night stand who is a hired merc. Deacon, the hired merc, is appalled at the way that his knew boss is a "sadistic" bastard. Who has this merc been working for before?

The reason for the heroine's kidnapping is so flimsy it evoked a literal and unhappy groan.

Worse, heroine's family is super wealthy and powerful but only one person is e
Didn't like the H, the title, the believability factor...could go on but I won't.
Omigosh what a good suspense-filled story but the ending was unbelievable and weak. Deacon should have been in jail or killed by those see everything, know everything foes of Hank Kelley but somehow survives and lives happily ever after.

I actually liked Lana. Why, I am not sure.

This installment to The Kelley Legacy was worth every single star I gave it. Lana's story kept me on the edge of my seat the entire book. I loved Deacon Holt alias Delta. The last book in the series is next up on my reading stack.

An excellent, quickly read book that I found very hard to put down. The story is compelling and easy to follow. I would love to read more of Elle Kennedy's books in the near future
