it was amazing

An Awesome Suspense Thriller, but also a love story…the kind of grab-a-reader-by-the-shoulders suspense that demands to be gulped down as quickly as possible.

Great Read! This novel has all the bells and whistles that a good mystery thriller needs to captivate the reader. The plot kept me guessing with twists and turns I didn't expect. The pace didn't let up until it finished. I whipped through the pages finding myself laughing out loud on more than a few occasions………. great characters, varied and colorful, three-dimensional, likable, understandable, despicable, and everything imaginable in between. The suspense draws you in and takes you on an adventure. The romance is secondary to the suspense. Still, even though I prefer a stronger romance or at least more of it, it still kept me hooked and I had to know how the book ended. I was completely entertained and was completely involved. The book weaves some vicious webs………. sexual tension, plenty of fight for life violence and determination. The bad guys are bad but enough background provided to get a feel for why they are bad. Mitch is the quintessential bad guy. The good guys are just as complex and so are their feelings and actions. Ross’s impact on Angela was, for me, the most telling emotion in the book. Some characters are a little exaggerated, but the point gets across very well and really inspired me. This book does not run out of plot or force an ending that is neither interesting nor plausible, as many I have read in the past. Will the truth really set her free, or will it bind her even more? The events are fast-paced and exhilarating at times. The ending is perfect. The love scenes are believable and passionate, but not pornographic. The storyline has great style and it is nicely written. The characters are believable and unforgettable, and the intense suspense is worth the ride. RATING: FIVE STARS ~ A+ ~
