Remember Jordan from St. Nacho's who was pretty much unlikable. He's back with his own story & now he's nice, reformed, turned over a new leaf & almost unrecognizable from that book. I could complain about that (consistency of character and all that) but really there was no way to make that old version of Jordan sympathetic so I'm going with this.

Good story & nice pairing of Jordan and Ken, the injured athlete. The story does unravel a bit towards the end. I don't like it when a writer throws in something and then just leaves it dangling, never to be mentioned again. Something happens to Jordan towards the end of the book and I kept waiting to find out why or some investigation, follow up--but we got nothing. This made me grumpy. Then we get pages of mom stuff and quite a few pages where Ken isn't in the book. This created a feeling of distance (literally & emotionally) between the characters & didn't leave enough pages for Jordan & Ken to work out their issues. I think she should have ditched most of the mom storyline as this distracted from the love story--which is the point isn't it? No one wants to read about a lukewarm love affair. I'll continue to read the St. Nacho series & see if ZAM finally knocks one out of the park.

Tamela I just remember that Cooper LOVED Jordan and that though he was unlikeable in the first story, that was because he was out of control following the accident and it's fall-out. He has finally come to terms with what he's done, and though he still feels guilty, he's making plans to help him deal... atonement in the form of helping other recover from life's injuries.
