Yeah....this was not good. I've been trying to find some redeeming qualities for this book, but between the massive info dump at the beginning, the winding plot that needed some serious condensing, the plot twists that were telegraphed chapters in advance, and the one-dimensional characters, I stopped reading with 10 pages to go becasue I just couldn't care anymore. A shorter novel with more focus on the adventure racing would have been better. Instead, the racing was a device used for the first ...more

OMG I loved this book! Despite the laughable cover and the title that didn't fit the story, I couldn't put this book down. I don't expect great suspense from books I buy on AllRomance ebooks, but this one had everything I love in a story. Crime (kidnapping in this case), suspense, law enforcement, and hot sex. The only thing that stopped me from giving it 5 stars is that I wasn't real crazy about the way Garrick's story line was wrapped up.

This was a pretty compelling stalker storyline. 3-1/2 stars. Kendall's father used to work for Garrick, a sadistic man on the wrong side of the law. When her father saw how heartless Garrick could be, he decided to turn state's evidence and run with his family. They've been running ever since. And Garrick has a particular reason he wants Kendall.

After Garrick kidnaps Kendall's brother to hold as a pawn over her head, FBI agent Dawson Cade gets involved and is immediately drawn to Kendall. He's n

Romantic suspense is one of my favorite genres. I love feeling the on the edge of your seat anxiety and trying to figure out who’s the bad guy. I especially love when the author engages you into the characters and story so much that you keep changing your mind as to who the bad guy(s) are. Kris Norris is a new to me author. I never go in expecting much on these. I was very pleasantly surprised with this book. It drew me in from the beginning. I stayed up until after 2:30 in the morning (until I ...more

I liked the story line, quite interesting and intriguing and kept my interest through the book. Enjoyed the adventure racing bits.
Wasnt so convinced by the two MC's, just didnt get the vibe from them and that left their intimate dialogue a bit flat for me.
So, a good who dunnit with a bit of a hanging thread at the end for continuance.

Great suspense..kept you guessing until the very end on the who and they why. Would have liked to seen Garrick's situation completely resolved, not really sure if he is going to come back or not. Great storyline

I tried liking this book, I really did. But the obvious 'suspense' & plot 'twists' and the characters with no depth made it really hard to even get through the book much less like it.

After all, speed limits are only a guideline and shouting is just her way of rising above the chaos. Kris loves the outdoors. If she's not on her computer— or chasing after her three kids— she's out on a trail somewhere, either ...more
