This book was very odd. It's the only one by this author that I've read, so maybe she always writes this way. For example the heroine is driving into town at the beginning and sees a man jogging and knows that he is "prowling over the darkness in him, seeking and frustrated, and fighting the realities he'd found" You know when I see a jogger I think "nice butt, okay I've got to turn left up here. What was I getting at the grocery store?" There's an awful lot of guessing what other peoples thoug ...more

I've had this book for months, wanting to see an example of the romantic suspense genre. Unfortunately, this one was only okay - not super romantic or suspenseful.

The back cover was enticing - a troubled woman, a hot guy, a ruthless stalker - but there wasn't quite enough story to fill the pages. The pacing just wasn't there for me, and the characterization seemed kind of flat. There's a lot of potential...but it wasn't realized. My apologies to the author for what will probably be seen as a sca

London's latest is very disappointing and boring. The whole story is full of cliches and is very slow moving, along with the fact that the chemistry between the hero and heroine is non-existent.

Maggie is on the run and hiding from a her former husband's business associate. This villian has beome obsessed with Maggie to the point of madness. (He wants to kil her, then love her, or maybe do both at the same time?!) Because he couldn't have Maggie, he dated and was sleeping with her married sister

Maggie was stupid and annoying; I seriously wanted to punch her in the face half the time. If you're looking for suspense, this isn't the book for you; the suspense doesn't come til the last 100 pages or so, and then it's wrapped up quickly and too neatly for my taste. It was refreshing that they didn't jump into bed with each other right away, and that Nick was actually the one who wanted to wait to get to know her better, but that fell through when he ends up having sex and 'falling in love' w ...more

Not the worst book I have read. That is about it for good things to say. She is not very good at dialogue, and I had to go back and re-read sentences here and there to try to make sense of them. Some of them I never did understand. Under another author, the actual story could have been quite good.

Interesting story-line.

Maggie was attacked, her sister killed and the culprit ended up being her own husband. Nick takes over as her hero and helps her fight her past. Typical romantic suspense.

I really enjoyed the characters in this book. Maggie, Scout, Celeste, and Nick and his family were characters that you want to get to know more.
