Recommends it for: readers of Barton's "Protectors" series
Recommended to jenjn79 by: favorite author, continuation of a series
The last book in Beverly Barton's popular "Protectors" series...which is rather sad. I haven't read all the books, yet, but I've enjoyed the ones that I have read, especially the longer ones. This one included.

Anyway, Dying For Youfeatures not only the oft-requested couple Lucie and Sawyer, but also wraps up storylines for Cara and Bain, and Daisy and Geoff. Though you might be able to read this book as a stand-alone and not have many problems, it reads almost as a sequel to the last "Protectors

I outdid myself this time. Not only did I begin reading a series by an author new to me with something other than book #1, but apparently I read the very last installment, #30! The action/adventure portion of the story was entertaining and well written, but there were a few too many star-crossed lovers, albeit with different obstacles in their relationships. Now that I know this was the conclusion to a rather long series, I can understand tying up loose ends. However, it does strain the limits o ...more

Sawyer and Lucie's story was anticipated by me for a long time and I have to say it did not disappoint. I was dying to read their story from the beginning when the fireworks were clearly evident between these two in the other Dundee Agency books. Not only do you get their love story but you get three for the price of one. The secondary characters were wonderful as well. The only thing I would have improved upon was more of the book being devoted to Sawyer and Lucie and longer love scenes. As sta ...more

I didn’t like the reason the couple was apart, and the suspense story could have been better.

Lucie and Sawyer work for a private security firm. Lucie has loved Sawyer for years. Sawyer also has feelings for Lucie, but he fights those feelings and has avoided her for nine years, due to a misunderstanding. Lucie quits her job and becomes a bodyguard for Cara, a billionaire traveling to S. America for business. While there, kidnappers think Lucie is Cara and kidnap her for ransom. Sawye

I felt this book was trying too hard to cover everything the author wanted to convey at this, the last book in the Dundee Agency series. There were 3 romances, all with men who didn't want to be in love; too much of the same thing. Too many threads were undeveloped or left me thinking "why mention this?". Where the author had a great storyline going, it seemed to be over before the suspense kicked in. There was never a pinacle. Many, many typos in my edition!!! I have read other books in this se ...more

As one of Beverly Barton’s “Protector" series, I would rate Dying for You 4 stars yet as an overall work ; 3 and a half. I did enjoy seeing the conclusion of several on hold relationships at the Dundee Private Security and Investigation Agency, I have been personally and hopefully waiting for another Barton original, like her Cherokee Point series. Any reader who enjoys danger linked with romance would enjoy this book as well as Barton fans everywhere. Well worth going in the cart.

So many of Beverly Barton's books seem similar. I think I've read other books by her featuring the same characters, but I can't guarantee it. I think the reason I keep reading her is that every now and then she really knocks one out of the park in the suspense department. I get tired of the sappy, romance end of things, but if I skip that stuff, there's often a good story behind it. This one wasn't one of the better ones. Still good, just nothing nail-biting.

I discovered this book at the library and wondered why I hadn't read it since I do make a point of reading Barton's mystery books. It didn't take long before I realized this was a Romantic-Suspense. It was okay but too much romance and too little suspense for my tastes. I knew what was going to happen within a couple of chapters but of course, had to read the whole thing to see if I was right! Yes, I was.

I enjoyed this book however I put put off with the soapish drama with the 4 main 6 leads. The I love you and you love me but wait we can never be together because blah blah blah was really off putting. Now on the other hand the action was great and the sad love of the two main leads were wonderful. It was a really good book but not the best I've ever read.

I enjoyed this book and found it easy to read. Even though it was number 30 in a series, it was fine to read as a stand alone book. I would like to read other books in the series, although the ending of the book was a bit like a fairy tale, i.e. "and they all lived happy ever after".

The story was well written for what it was. It was a spy/chick flick. Think Charlies, danger, and betrayel. A cliche is the best way to describe it. Damsel in distress, "prince Charming" sent to the rescue. This would be what i consider a good beach read.

Great romance with more than one couple involved and a great mystery to go along with all of them
